Annual inverse effects in the northern and southern hemispheres - A review


1 Summary

Interferometry is a valuable tool in physics and is widely used to study radiation fields. Spin torsion fields also appear to be amenable to the use of interferometry to study their effects. To allow for some standardisation between investigators an interferometer with standard dimensions is used. The interferometer consists of two copper pipes spaced apart. Currently there is no inanimate detection system and so dowsing rods must be used to map the responses of the interferometer. These are detected by the rods swinging together and consist of a number of detectable lines (interference fringes) which are parallel to each other and equally spaced. The spacing of the lines generated by the standard interferometer is either approximately 2m or 6m. In the northern hemisphere in winter the spacing is 2m, changing in late April to 6m and changing back in November to 2m. In the southern hemisphere an inverse of the changes takes place. The effect has been repeatable over many years and has been observed by a number of investigators. The data used in this analysis is based on the historical work of Dodd, Harris, Humphries and Reddish [1] [2]


2. Detection

Detection of effects in Physics has often been made by the use of raw human senses and only later by the use of instrumentation. The detection of spin torsion radiation is no different in this respect and at present no inanimate detection system exists although efforts are being made to produce such a system. Detection of the radiation fields must currently be carried out by the use of dowsing or detector rods. Unlike many human senses not everyone is able to get a response from the use of such rods and so it is important that before attempting any experimental work any potential experimenter carries out basic tests to see if they are sensitive to the fields. In order to replicate the inverse effects experiment it is important that a standard method of holding the rods and a standard compact interferometer are used. Basic information on the use of detector rods can be found here together with simple tests to determine dowsing ability.


3. Environment

The inverse effects experiment can be carried out indoors (Note that this is not the case for all experiments) The experiment can however be affected by nearby rotating mass. This can include machinery, domestic appliances and computer hard disks. It is recommended that such devices be shut down before carrying out experiments

The experiment appears to be relatively insensitive to effects caused by the local built environment but it has been observed in other experiments that in the case of buildings with large mass (particularly stone built buildings) there may be an adverse effect on experimental results. In case of doubt about results it is recommended that experiments be repeated outdoors away from major structures.

When carrying out experiments the investigator is not just measuring the effects caused solely by the interferometer but is also part of the experiment itself. There is an interaction between interferometer and investigator and it has been observed that results can be affected by rings and jewellery and belts. It advisable to remove these.

4. The interferometer

The fringe spacing created by an interferometer is a function of the dimensions of the interferometer, in particular the spacing. The interferometer used in this experiment has standard dimensions to allow results from different investigators to be compared. The interferometer is constructed from 2 lengths of 0.5" copper service pipe each 1.0m long. These pipes are held by wooden supports and spaced apart by 0.6m. Fig. 1 shows such an interferometer. In the diagram the interferometer is shown aligned with its bars pointing north/south, however the pointing direction has not been found to be critical.

5. Interference fringes

Interference fringes can be detected as an investigator holding detector rods walks away from the interferometer, in the case shown, either to the east or the west. It is necessary to travel repeatedly from (say) the interferometer to the east since the detectable fringes can sometimes take time to build a response in the investigator. As an investigator walks away from the interferometer it is possible to detect a number of parallel equally spaced fringes. The measurements that are used for the results are the distance from the interferometer to the first fringe.

The spacing of the fringes exhibits an effect whereby the measured fringe distance in the northern hemisphere changes around April 25th from approximately 2m to 6m and changes back to 2m around November 20th. In the southern hemisphere the changes are reversed [2].


6. Results

Fig 2 shows raw data taken by C. M. Humphries (personal communication) from measurements in France for the April transition event. Although the graph shows a relatively sharp transition this is not always the case, sometimes transitions occur over a period of several days. In the southern hemisphere the direction of this transition is reversed. A stylised graph of the fringe switch is shown in fig.3. Figs 4, 5, 6 and 7 show measured transition dates recorded by 5 investigators over a number of years. The graphs show that the dates on which transitions take place vary by several days from year to year.

7. Discussion.

The fringes created by a compact interferometer switch between 2m and 6m in the northern hemisphere as shown in fig. 3. In the southern hemisphere the transitions are reversed, switching between 6m and 2m. Although transitions notionally take place on April 25th and November 20th these dates are only approximations and the dates can vary by several days from year to year.
