Do you know what the greatest hoax in the history of science is?
In my view, it is this picture:
It is taken from the Pink Floyd’s album “The dark side of the moon”. The members of one of the greatest bands of all times have also fallen for this hoax, taking this drawing as an idol of worship on their legendary album. The same drawing can be found in billions of textbooks throughout the world.
Why is this drawing a hoax? Because it has nothing, absolutely NOTHING to do with the truth. The phenomenon doesn’t look like that at all.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe has already given the right picture two hundred years ago:
There are numerous flaws in the first drawing:
At the emerging surface of the prism there are practically no colors, only white light;
The colors don’t diverge, so to say, parallel to each other as shown in the first drawing, but they combine;
There is no green color near the emerging surface. It appears later as a result of the mixing between the yellow and the cyan. The wider the incident beam is, the farther the green color appears;
All the colors in the first drawing have equal width. There’s no such thing. The yellow is actually much wider than the red. The same applies to the violet and cyan. The width of the yellow is the same as the width of the violet. The width of the red is the same as the width of the cyan;
There is no separate orange color in the refracted beam;
There are also no seven colors in the so-called spectrum (as it is usually said). On the plus-side there are only yellow and red; on the minus-side there are only violet and cyan. Together with the green there are overall five colors.
Another hoax in relation to the previous one is the following drawing:
It appears in the textbooks when the so-called chromatic aberration is discussed.
The true picture of the phenomenon looks like this:
A collimated beam of light goes through a chromatic convex lens. It converges in a point and then diverges. Before the focal point the beam is rounded by a yellow-red wreath (figure a below) and by a violet-cyan wreath after the focal point (figure b). The yellow color turns into violet, the red color turns into cyan.
Have you ever heard of the very simple experiment
just mentioned? I doubt you have. Do you know why? Because the science of the last centuries tends to cheat. It sweeps under the carpet the experiments which are not in accordance with its fake theories. If it describes such experiments, then the contradictions become obvious. It should then admit that its theory is wrong and that it doesn’t have a true explanation of the phenomena. But this science would rather cheat than to admit its cluelessness about such simple experiments. The members of the academic community would lose their authority and also their reputation as the smartest people of the society.
I CALL YOU TO REMEMBER THIS EXPERIMENT VERY WELL because it disproves several hoaxes of the contemporary science:
1) the light is not composed of colors;
2) there is no such thing as frequencies of colors;
then, how on Earth would the frequencies suddenly change into other on their linear path of propagation in a point far from refraction surface?!! ;
3) there is also no such thing as wavelengths of colors;
4) light and colors are not electromagnetic waves.
I want to elaborate something regarding the hoax below:
Something similar to this can be obtained with a convex lens in a very specific way. Let me explain.
Let’s say that on the incident surface of the lens we glue two opaque papers: an opaque ring on the outer edge of the lens and an opaque circle in the middle as presented in the figure (b) below:
A collimated beam goes through the lens of the figure (b). If we hold a white sheet of paper before the focal point, then we will get the image presented in the figure (c). A YELLOW-red ring appears at the outer edge, while a VIOLET-cyan ring at the inner edge of the light ring. Between them it is white.
Now, let us narrow the white ring of the figure (b) above, so that we get a lens like the one presented in the figure (b) below.
In this case the yellow color from the outer edge will meet the cyan color from the inner edge resulting in a green ring in the middle (figure c).
Only in this way we can get something similar to the hoax image.
I believe that the images in the second to last series of figures could serve as a basis for explanation of the optical phenomenon HALO
which appears in the very cold polar regions. In some photographs of Halo the yellow-red ring appears at the outer edge, while the violet-cyan ring at the inner edge:
But in other photographs it is reversed:
just like the figures (c) and (d) in the mentioned series of figures.
Maybe the frozen water droplets in the atmosphere make somehow a huge lens.
