The LIGO Test

of a prediction based on
And now, the long-awaited... "THEORY OF EVERYTHING"
by Eugene Sittampalam


From the LIGO Hanford Observatory home page:


The acronym, LIGO, stands for Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, whose mission is to observe gravitational waves of cosmic origin. LIGO will search for gravitational waves created in the supernova collapse of stellar cores to form neutron stars or black holes, the collisions and coalescences of neutron stars or black holes, the wobbly rotation of neutron stars with deformed crusts and the remnants of gravitational radiation created by the birth of the universe. LIGO is a joint project of scientists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF). ...


Enjoy looking at the LIGO web pages for LIGO Hanford, LIGO Livingston, LIGO Caltech and LIGO MIT, where you can learn more about the basic science that is LIGO's quest, the technology development programs that will make this quest achievable and the people who are striving to bring it all together. ...

Dear Learned Participants:

“LIGO will search for gravitational waves created in supernova collapses of stellar cores...” With all due respect, however, do you know that, in reality, it is intense neutrino waves that mainly cause the expected physical effect in such instruments?


This letter is to kindly request of your privileged team to use the great new instrument to also check for these waves from the closest of all natural sources – the core of the Earth. Apart from the new physics that you would unearth and bring to light, this earnest appeal is more toward the noble quest to minimize death and suffering in major earthquakes. A timely program set up in this direction could literally save thousands of human lives by early warning hours before the devastation strikes. Even your own lives and those of your loved ones can get spared in the next big one (now considered overdue) in California. The cost should be relatively small for LIGO to accommodate and run this concurrently with its other programs, but one cannot put a price on the potential payback. 


To start with, do check your records to see if there have been any abnormally high signal or “noise” levels during times just prior to large earthquakes that have occurred around the globe recently, that is, since the time LIGO went into operation or observational runs.


The strongest quakes originate from the Earth’s fluid outer core (as per my theoretical research; please see below). The intense electron-antineutrinos released in the process reach us practically at the speed of light (like lightning), whereas the tremors reach us at the speed of sound (like the thunderclap). The time delay, of the order of hours, is ample enough to warn people in the most likely areas of strike to take necessary precautions (vacate buildings, etc.). The time is also sufficient to sound the alarm in stages, on the severity of the impending danger, so as not to cause much public panic. Further, coordinating with GEO and other gravitational-wave (and even neutrino) observatories around the world would reduce errors in determining potential epicenter areas. And LIGO, perhaps, could head this unique and magnanimous service to humanity against what may be considered the worst of all natural disasters.

Today, for want of this final perspective on the nature of things – a singular and all-embracing theory – any observed connections between gravitational waves and neutrinos are peremptorily dismissed by the mainstream. “If this [probability] implies that the correlations are a real physical effect, then new physics will be required to explain them.” [Refer: C. A. Dickson and B. F. Schutz – Reassessment of the reported correlations between gravitational waves and neutrinos associated with SN 1987A – Physical Review D 51, 2644–2668 (1995).] Such words from the world of peer review are common, yet understandable; but they become detrimental to the advancement of science when taken as basis to deny any thorough and unbiased further investigation.


Justification for my appeal to you here is given further in the web pages, UCLA Test and KamLAND.Test. The rest of the website, too, would be of help in understanding this ultimate paradigm shift waiting in the wings! I would consider it an honor if invited to make a personal presentation of it at any of your conferences or workshops.

Thank you and best regards,


Eugene Sittampalam

Dear Learned Participants,
UCLA Letter
Please be good enough to access the above for perusal. You may find the matter of utmost importance in many fields. Most notably, lives could be saved in major earthquakes like the one last month in Asia. Prediction of such natural disasters – hours before the surface tremors – is now possible even with existing facilities if one knows what to look for and where to look for it. Last month’s death toll is unacceptable in this day and age. What’s even more shameful today for us “global village” folks is that the tremors were picked up by monitors within minutes; yet, with hours to spare, countries around failed to get alerted to the impending danger. Please do give the matter some serious thought.
Thank you and best regards.

The sixth sense of animals gained much credibility at the Yala National Park [Sri Lanka], which though suffering significant human loss, did not count a single carcase of an animal, a bird or a jumbo.
Located in the southeast of the country, Yala shelters over 32 species of mammals, 130 avifauna and some notable reptiles. It is home to the sloth bear, leopard, elephant, water buffalo, wild boar, spotted deer, sambar and golden jackal. Director Department of Wildlife Conservation (DWLC), Dayananda Kariyawasam, who visited the park after the disaster, confirmed that he had not found even a single carcase of an animal during his visit. “We also believe in the sixth sense of animals after the tsunami. Most of the animals had run in the opposite direction, away from the beach for their survival, before the giant waves hit the park,” he says. According to Kariyawasam, the park vegetation three to four kilometres inland along the eastern belt has been damaged and destroyed.
Sixth sense or survival instinct, Sunday Observer [Sri Lanka], 16 January 2005; p 23


This sixth sense in animals is hardly a mystery. Man, too, has developed it but in the form of instruments. Unwittingly, though, he has the most advanced ones facing the stars.

 What’s Cooking at the Center of the Earth?


The controversial idea that Earth has a nuclear reactor at its core (Discover, August 2002) may soon be put to the test. Physicists

in Russia and the Netherlands have proposed using neutrino detectors to search for evidence of a five-mile-wide uranium ball at

the planet’s center, churning out the heat that powers Earth’s magnetic field.

Neutrinos and their antimatter twins, antineutrinos, are lightweight, charge-free, nearly inert particles spit out by nuclear processes.

If, as independent geophysicist J. Marvin Herndon argues, there is a “georeactor” at Earth’s core, it would emit vast numbers of

antineutrinos. Because they react little with matter, antineutrinos usually zip through Earth unscathed. But they can be detected by

a special type of apparatus: a huge tank of liquid in which rare antineutrino collisions with atomic nuclei produce faint but

measurable bursts of light.

Researchers at the Institute for Nuclear Research of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow and the Russian Research

Center of the Kurchatov Institute have presented plans for a 1,000-ton detector at the Baksan Neutrino Observatory beneath the

Caucasus Mountains. The scientists say their experiment could confirm the existence of the georeactor within a few years.

Meanwhile, a team at the Kernfysisch Versneller Institute in the Netherlands advocates building a similar antineutrino detector

below the Caribbean island of Curaçao. The site is more than 600 miles from the nearest nuclear power plant, which would

simplify identifying antineutrinos from Earth’s core. “These proposals are a good example of how science should progress,”

says Herndon. All they need now is about $50 million to become a reality.

NOAA scientists at the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii went to work within minutes of getting a seismic signal that an earthquake occurred off the west coast of Northern Sumatra, Indonesia. NOAA issued a bulletin indicating no threat of a tsunami to Hawaii, the West Coast of North America or to other coasts in the Pacific Basin—the area served by the existing tsunami warning system established by the Pacific rim countries and operated by NOAA in Hawaii. NOAA scientists then began an effort to notify countries about the possibility that a tsunami may have been triggered by the massive 9.0 undersea earthquake. The Pacific Basin tsunami warning system did not detect a tsunami in the Indian Ocean since there are no buoys in place there.

With the death toll from South Asia’s tsunamis likely to exceed 50,000, there have been calls for a system to alert

countries bordering the Indian Ocean when undersea earthquakes happen. This might help reduce the

casualties, though some means of predicting quakes would be better—and that remains elusive

...Nevertheless, more could be done to make use of the world’s existing monitoring systems: for instance,

...scientists detected the tremors from Sunday’s quake within minutes, but say they had no means of alerting

those Asian countries that were about to be hit by the resulting waves.

and that remains elusive”?
No, friends; not anymore.
more could be done to make use of the worlds existing monitoring systems”
Yes, friends; and hope this page has given the basic rationale for that humanitarian cause.
