The San Francisco Tesla Society
Presents a free presentation by
Gamma Rays Are Not Photons
An Experimental Demonstration
Sunday, December 14, 2003 1:00 p.m.
at 3220 Sacramento Street (near Lyon)
San Francisco, California
Independent researcher Eric Reiter will present a lecture and perform a live experiment to show the distinction between light being either a probability wave or a classical electromagnetic wave. No one ever performed this experiment with gamma-rays because it has been considered a fact that gamma-rays were photons (an energy event guided by a probability wave). Surprise! Eric suggests this experiment shows that gamma-rays are detected in coincidence at rates substantially surpassing the quantum mechanical chance prediction. This could present a serious challenge to quantum mechanics, the dominant paradigm of modern physics.
The experiment will be described in detail to eliminate confounding factors or alternative explanations. The history of why physics took to quantum mechanics, and several outright blunders in our textbooks will be examined. A theoretical replacement for quantum mechanics will be introduced. Details are posted at http://www.unquantum.com .
