The science as a religion people will freak but whatever. Thats what they do.
So who decides what gets funded? That is the giant loophole in the scientific method and peer review.
Ever since I thought of the pulser pump. (Which was probably thought of before) I have been on the wrong side of scientific indifference and malice.
First, they said it couldnt work. And that it was a fake.
Finally this year, an ordinary guy in Cornwall, England, made a model and put it on the internet. Finally proof that the pulser effect is not all in my imagination. Way back in the early 1990's a scientist did want to investigate it but he did not get funded. And there have been others who tried to get students to investigate it. Nada happened. It is also on the list of things to be investigated at appropedia (and I did not put it on the list). I have more than 40 crappy videos on youtube and my longish pulser pump video gets 40% of the views so obviously people like the idea.
Why have the scientific community failed to get their act together in 20 years and investigate the darn thing?
It is about 20 years since I put it in the public domain.
I am not the only person who wants the process improved.
Here is my peer review playlist. Some of it is "real" scientists who compete for grants for research.
One is me whining about the lack of curiosity among ordinary people and scientists.
Some of it is outsiders pointing out the flaws. One is comedy. Check it out and see for yourself if the process can be improved.
