Topic026: The Path To Cosmology Via Higher Redshift, Bill Tifft, 9/16/16

At this point I will backtrack a bit to move into higher redshift work leading into cosmology. Topic014 and 015 jumped forward a bit prematurely since it was necessary to clearly define redshift periodicity and variability to reply to studies attempting to indirectly dismiss the effects by association with unrelated studies before I had covered my work that proceeded defining QTC in book chapters 3 and 4. I can now begin discussing book chapter 5 with a summary of the premises formed from the early work. The studies at higher redshift quickly confirmed and solidified the path to QTC. Following the premises I will begin with a look at quantum properties of quasars which are precursors of galaxies in QTC.

Topic016: Relating T To Properties of Galaxies, T = 0, Bill Tifft, 3/02/16

I apologize to the more casual readers of my blog for jumping ahead too fast in Topics 14 and 15. I keep hearing statements casually dismissing redshift quantization and completely avoiding variation evidence. I felt I should go on record to clearly define the effects, evidence, and procedures necessary to understand, detect and study such properties of the redshift. I may renumber those two topics later when they better fit the sequence. In the present topic I will return to my original subject intended for Topic014 to better define, discuss and illustrate T states.

Topic014: Detecting Quantized Redshifts, Bill Tifft 1/24/16

This topic is a little different, and my work has been delayed because of the passing of my beloved wife Janet. I have introduced and demonstrated many of the basic concepts underlying Quantum Temporal Cosmology, many which are quite disturbing to adherents of classical cosmology and other schools of thought. There are a few things I need to make clear. Science should be a search for truth where all ideas must stand or fall on their OWN merits. I keep hearing comments that findings related to properties of work by the Arp-Burbidge-Narlikar school can be dismissed, therefore ALSO my work related to quantization and time. There is no significant overlap of my work with the premises of that school of thought. This blog topic, quite advanced for my regular topic series, is intended to explain what is actually required to understand and test QTC. Tests must utilize correct procedures and examine predictions and evidence representing QTC’s own unique findings.

Topic008: Global Quantization, The Galactocentric Rest Frame, Bill Tifft 6/30/15

Discovery of redshift quantization in clusters of galaxies, with subsequent studies of double galaxies using differential redshifts, established that the redshift appeared to occur in periodic steps near 72.5 km/s or related multiples. The next step was to see if the redshift could be phased together globally. To accomplish that a transformation to the galactic center and precise 21-cm radio redshifts were required. This topic fills in background and implications of what is to come. The redshift is indeed globally quantized.

Topic006: Testing the Quantum Concept: Double Galaxies I, Bill Tifft 4/25/15

With the emergence of evidence in Topics 004 and 005 that the redshift of galaxies appeared to occur in periodic `quantum’ steps it was obvious that new observational tests were needed to verify and define properties of such a model. Quantized steps clearly appeared to allow no gravitational connection or classical motion between galaxies. The obvious testing ground involved double galaxies, the ideal cosmological example of the two body problem. In fact double galaxies yielded fundamental tests and information of three types, two independent motion tests, and the apparent form of large scale structure. In this topic I will discuss verification of quantization of the redshifts.

Topic005: The Redshift Is Quantized, Bill Tifft: 3/27/15

As redshift quality continued to improve a still finer structure emerged. Redshifts appear to assume a periodic quantized pattern, occupying specific steps in a decay or excitation process which can potentially be described by a quantum wave function. The source function appears to take the form of a quantum dipole embedded in galaxy nuclei. Preservation of the pattern implies there is little or no evidence that gravitationally induced motion can play any significant role between galaxies on the large scale. Publication of such new and controversial concepts is a complex problem.

Topic003: Patterns Within Band Structure, Bill Tifft 1/26/15

My second topic introduced crossband substructure within redshift-magnitude band patterns. Patterns within the structure relating to radial distance from the cluster core, galaxy morphology, and radio or emission line activity in the galaxies provide new puzzles that will play important roles in understanding what redshift-magnitude band patterns are. For now just view the puzzle.

Topic002: Redshift Banding, Substructure and Gravity, Bill Tifft 12/13/14

My first topic introduced redshift-magnitude banding in galaxy clusters and discussed three unexpected correlations inconsistent with dynamics. This topic extends the work to show that the structure breaks up into finer structure further alienating any association with gravity and suggests the structure seems to be evolving in time as one moves to lower redshift.
