Scientific studies depend on the “gravitational constant” to predict the force of gravity.
This value has been determined based on a formula. But all formulae suffer the severe limitations of approximation and adjusted figures, like rounding.
He says rigidly applying formulae is slave-thinking, but something routinely done by scientists. Formulae, by themselves aren’t meant to be the foundation of any scientific discussion, especially when the field or scope is complex and outside the traditional conceptual point of view.
Well trained scientists, who have developed a strong inner sense, can come to an understanding of the limits of when an equation or formula should be applied. They know when to use it, and when the limits of its applicability have been passed.
But it’s difficult to change deeply rooted old perspectives and replace them with new ideas. This is especially true with scientific dogma.
There are many variables that can affect gravity. Yet scientists claim that gravity acts the same within the Earth as at the surface by automatically applying Newton’s equations. And they base it on measuring the effects of two iron balls a few centimeters in diameter and deciding that the Earth, that is 12,500 kilometers in diameter, behaves the same.
He says there are so many variables, forces and effects that are not taken into consideration, that you have to wonder what their experiments are actually measuring!
How can one possibly consider that gravity at 3500 km deep inside the Earth, is the same as that 1 to 2 centimeters deep inside an iron ball? And then use that conclusion to develop the theory that the Earth is sold and rigid in the interior.
Its alright to design experiments using certain assumptions, but that the mistake scientists make is to forget about the assumptions and consider them to be strict laws.
The gravitational constant is the proportionality constant used in Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation, and is commonly denoted by G. This is different from g, which denotes the acceleration due to gravity. In most texts, we see it expressed as: G = 6.673×10-11 N m2 kg-2.
It determines the strength of Newton’s inverse square law in a particular system of physical units and is, not surprisingly, known as Newton’s constant of gravitation. It is considered to be a fundamental constant of nature.
The gravitational constant, denoted by the letter G, is an empirical physical constant involved in the calculation of gravitational effects in Sir Isaac Newton’s law of universal gravitation and in Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity.
