Welcome to the Citizendium! We hope you will contribute boldly and well. Here are pointers for a quick start. You'll probably want to know how to get started as an author. Just look at Getting Started for other helpful "startup" links, our help system and CZ:Home for the top menu of community pages. Be sure to stay abreast of events via Twitter. You can test out editing in the sandbox if you'd like. If you need help to get going, the forum is one option. That's also where we discuss policy and proposals. You can ask any administrator for help, too. Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and have fun!

Write-a-Thon this weekend

This Sunday, we're getting together on the wiki for the first time in a decade to create and edit articles loosely themed on planets, stars, galaxies and cosmic entities - or anything that involves words like those! For more information, see What's a Write-a-thon? etc. Hope to see you there! John Stephenson (talk) 16:35, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

Feedback sought on a new article Nuclear_power_reconsidered

Hi Mark! David MacQuigg has organized a new article about nuclear power and is seeking helpful suggestions, feedback or additions on it. Could you please take a look when you get time? Minor corrections directly into the article, more major suggestions either on the Discussion page or on David MacQuigg's Talk page. Also, if you like the article, might we consider inviting Mike Lisa to take a look at it? Thanks a bunch in advance. Pat Palmer (talk) 14:05, 13 October 2021 (UTC)

Testing if the wiki notifies you of this edit

Hey Mark! I'm just changing your Talk page to see if the wiki notifies you when I do. Pat Palmer (talk) 13:22, 18 March 2022 (CDT)

Did not get an email, but saw a message notification about this when I logged in to Citizendium. Mark Widmer (talk) 15:45, 19 March 2022 (CDT)
I got a notification that you replied, as above. Pat Palmer (talk) 15:47, 19 March 2022 (CDT)

Benchmark quantities for PH?

Asking if Benchmark quantities could include a section on PH. Pat Palmer (talk) 13:19, 7 April 2022 (CDT)

Radiation measurement units for Benchmark quantities

See this table which will soon be integrated into the series of articles about Nuclear power reconsidered. Might you make articles to define some of these, and perhaps add them to a Radiation table in Benchmarks? Pat Palmer (talk) 12:39, 14 May 2023 (CDT)

White hole article draft needing review

Hi Mark! As our resident active physicist, would you be able to review a draft of the White hole article that User:Y.I. Pachankis has created? It is at User:Y.I._Pachankis/sandbox/White_hole. If you think the information that is there is objective, you would just need to copy his updated draft over the existing article and leave a note on the edit explaining what you did.

Discussion on Bremsstrahlung

Hi Mark,

I want to discuss creating a page on Bremsstrahlung, related to my theory of fifth cosmic force. I don't know much about the other theories on the fifth cosmic force, but I think centromeres in DNA that shift between fusion and fission are the best evidence for the fifth cosmic force, apart from, I think I would like to contribute this image into the white hole page.

Material fields of the black hole, white hole, and fifth cosmic force on NGC 3034

It is too complicated to explain why it looks like this, so I did not put it into the page previously.

My conceptual framework for writing wikis is on knowledge map, and Bremsstrahlung I believe to be the key in bridging the knowledge gaps. I believe that your background in LASERs, especially if you are expertised in particle physics, a conceptual framework in how to write about Bremsstrahlung will be very beneficial.

P.S. I noticed that you're in charge of treasury of the NGO. And Pat told me that it is not formally registered yet. I'll update you with a link I previously researched about opening up NGO in California later when I get back to my home computer and not on macbook. I just checked that it should work with the current financial cashflow trends with registration service (which saves a lot of energy, around $100 / year if I remembered correctly). This will reduce the personnel's legal risks.

Hi. Regarding the fifth force, are there articles in peer-reviewed journals about it -- written by either you or others, as long as it was peer-reviewed? The other "fifth forces" I'm aware of -- but none confirmed, to my knowledge -- are (1) from the mid-late 1980s by a number of research groups, (2) some work at a Hungarian research lab in the mid-late 2010s, and (3) the idea that the accelerating expansion of the universe ("dark energy") might be due to a new type of force.
(I'm afraid I'm not an expert in particle physics -- I do have a basic understanding of the Standard Model, but it never really played a role in my prior work with lasers.) Mark Widmer (talk) 08:33, 3 August 2023 (CDT)

From your description, I think the third one is in line with my findings, only that they need to falsify the Big Bang theory first. The second one I found the source but do not have access to except for the abstract: I judge that the protophobic X boson is highly plausible. I am not so good at particle physics, but my observations from the NGC 3034 holographic data correspond to the possibility (Higgs mechanism behind my white hole observation with ground-based telescopes and the proton / neutron asymmetry seen in NGC 3034 data). The articles I published concerning the two points are: and . It's not easy finding suitable journals especially that I have no funding. But it feels good with less famous journals which have some scientific and public interest pursuits.

I got the information from this piece: . I don't know why but in 2019 when I was in the U.S., which I sensed I was followed by both the Chinese and U.S. intelligence community, I felt strongly that white holes were observed. I only had to follow the instinct from online that seems like a hacker sometimes with my childhood computer knowledge :).

The anti-gravity aspect, I only had the intuition back in 2021 with The Science and Roger Penrose webinar hosted by the University of Arizona. I haven't opened this link on the 1980s theory even with VPN , so, I can't say more about this one. My thinking is that there will not be concrete evidence unless with antimatter detection plates, and I only got to know how economically impossible it is after I tried to apply for a PHD position with the idea :). The issues on the antimatter version of Van Der Waals force. I only managed to communicate this idea with W asymmetry, and centromeres in DNA may be another direction. The recent two articles are scheduled to be published in Global Journal of Science Frontier Research, 23(2) and 23(6). No preprints. Why I am holding off this aspect of thinking.

My concerns on the public good about LASERs are the thermonuclear contamination capacities in outer space. With the standard model I believe the moral capacities can be met. The only problem already happened is on the Chinese quantum satellite with strong photon beams in outer space. I've received again IAEA technical meeting on fusion design safety and regulation for abstract today, but still can't figure out yet on the country nomination requirement. This issue I have only communicated with the International Criminal Court previously, which is dealing with Putin first, (and I really hoped I was wrong in my science instead of right on the catastrophes) so... Anyhow, making more concrete knowledge is fulfilling proper responsibilities as middle-aged and retired persons :).

Anyhow, I don't think I fully understand your criteria of "confirm" and the confirmation bias thinking behind your wording.

NGO registration

Hi Mark, this is the link I previously researched that can be the most time-saving and cost-effective way to formally register an NGO.
