Since Russian Academy of Science's (RAS) «Commission on fight with Fraud in Science, Pseudoscientists and Torsion Fields» has launched a campaign against the work of Dr. G. Shipov, I would like to respond to your references in websites as well as to ask you several questions:
«Torsion» had been used by F. Frenet since 1847, then from 1895 by G. Ricci (to describe rotation as an analytical expression of what we call «torsion»), later by R.Weitzenborg from 1923-24, E. Cartan from 1926-27, A. Einstein from 1927-28.
Unfortunately, your scientific advisors did not inform you of the origin of the term «torsion», before your team attempted to make it a «trade-mark term» for your «pseudoscience» campaign.
Your Initiative resembles the «Pseudo genetics» campaign from Nikita Khrushchev's time, which threw the USSR backwards for many years. Do you intend to repeat it with «pseudo torsion» related to physics? If not, then ask your advisors to update you.
The world is encountering technologies, created by vacuum metric engineering of warp. Professionals will be lost, if they do not know about Ricci rotation of local space, Riemann local space time curvatures, the properties of vacuum, etc. So should Russian scientists learn from foreign scientists again?!
Please, do not repeat such dramatic mistakes for Russia and do not mislead the talented scientists, who wish to and have to study the truth about nature, energy, matter, etc. Do not mislead gifted engineers, who need up-todate knowledge to enhance their inventions. The real scientist is he who is searching for the truth about nature and about the laws of the universe. If a scientist stops his study, he stops being a scientist. Luckily, there are more discoveries forthcoming:
«Objectively, the desired breakthroughs might be impossible to achieve. Reciprocally, history has shown that breakthroughs tend to take the pessimists by surprise».Mark Millis.
How can an anonym lead a campaign for a national organization such as the Russian Academy of Sciences, that represents the intellectual and scientific frontier of a significant country?
You have mentioned, that during your more than sixty years of practical work you «do not know of an instance where a truly valuable work or idea in the field of physics has not been published» in your magazine.
Seeking to be published in your magazine, Dr. G. Shipov had sent you his first work on « General relativistic electrodynamics with tensor potential» (Izvestia VUZOV, Physics, 10,1972, p 98-104) in August of 1972, followed by another attempt in 1992 with his book « Problems of Elementary interactions in physics» (Moscow, MSU, 1979, 146 p), then thirdly, jointly with Prof L. Keldysh, his scientific supervisor, you were given Dr. Shipov's next monograph « Program of general relativity and theory of vacuum» (VINITI, N 6948, v 88, Moscow, 1988, 131 p). All three times his works had been «lost» from your office table.
Recently Dr. Shipov has completed an impressive work. His theoretical articles, lessons, experimental results are available at http://www.shipov.com/science.html as well as working models in his laboratory.
Now you may be glad to congratulate a colleague, who achieved really significant results.
During World Year of Physics 2005, when the entire world celebrates top achievements in physics, all Russian physicists will be looking for your enlightening advice and wise support that may contribute to a better future and greater prosperity of the country.
