    Finally, something I can read while I’m listening to Lou Reed’s “Metal Machine Music.” Coincidentally, it has similarities in both structure and content to some of the writings of another denizen of the ‘60s, underground, New York scene. Andy Warhol’s “A” is the transcript of audio recordings Warhol made of amphetamine users; “Geocentricity: The Debates” is the transcript of YouTube debates Reeves had with the critics of his videos. Both works have an alarming amount of profanity. The characters in “A” had reason to curse; they often believed their speed was cut with rat poison (or was rat poison?); for Reeves’s critics, there is no obvious excuse. Except that Reeves is on to something. He has forbidden knowledge like Adam had before he was expelled from paradise. Without realizing it, his critics assume the role of the cherubim and their words are the flaming sword which turns every way to guard the way to the tree of life. Reeves’s critics may have deluded themselves into believing... More > that they are defending science. Actually, they are defending a societal pecking order. This becomes clear as the debates unfold. It seems beyond ridiculous to savagely mock somebody for allegedly not understanding the nuances of Einstein’s theories. I recall wading through a textbook on tensor calculus only to read that the Riemann-Christoffel curvature tensor (from which Einstein’s law of gravity is directly derived) doesn’t distinguish between flat and curved space as is claimed. But, (there is always a “but”) a “modified” version of it does. Reeves has discovered that Einstein’s relativity theories are more speculation than science. He uses their weaknesses to make a case for geocentricity. This enrages his critics as much as blasphemy enrages the devoutly religious. His critics sputter with rage like the most parochial stereotypes imaginable. A better strategy might have been to welcome Reeves to their most exclusive club. These relativists should have praised his understanding and gently corrected any of his miscues. Reeves argument runs along these lines: all observers have the scientific right to say they are at rest including those observers in accelerated motion. Therefore, the motions of the other objects they observe are the product of these other objects themselves. It is strange, if one follows his reasoning, that Reeves believes the geocentric solar system model of Ptolemy must be dismissed while another version of a geocentric solar system must be embraced.< Less
