Where Did Einsteinian General Relativity Go Wrong?

Einstein used the geometry known in his day, which was the second Bianchi identity of 1880 (Ricci) or 1902 (Bianchi). He based his field equation of 1915 dreictly on this identity, which does not contain sapcetime torsion, discovered in the early twenties by Cartan and colleagues. As shown in UFT99, which is based directly on Carroll’s chapter three of “Spacetime and Geometry: An Introduction to General Relativity” (online open access), torsion and curvature always coexist. If one of them is zero so is the other, and the geometry collapses. In order to make torsion go away, the dogmatists use a symmetric connection. However this procedure results in loss of curvature as well as torsion, and the entire geometry collpases. This argument in UFT99 is broken out into several famous easy to understand proofs, each read thousands of times without objection. Once torsion is correctly incorporated, every equation used by Einstein is changed completely, so his field equation is reduced to geometrical rubble. The dogmatists know this and hope that torsion will go away. Some of them eliminate torsion in an entirely subjective way by making a symmetric connection into an axiom. In other words they just assert without proof that torsion is zero. In fact this measn (UFT99) that they are asserting that curvature is also zero, reductio ad absurdum. Sean Carroll himself has admitted that ECE and ECE2 are geometrically correct, and only in Carroll chapter three is there a correct treatment of torsion. UFT313 onwards give the correct field theory of gravitation (ECE2). In UFT354, Douglas Lindstrom, Horst Eckardt and I show that torsion completely changes the metric compatibility condition used by Einstein, so his field equation cannot be right in any way whatsoever. We have devised many methods of describing with ECE2 everything that Einstein described with his field equation. We rekect Big Bang and black holes as being meaningless. See “Principles of ECE” and “Principles of ECE Volume Two” (unfinished). These are attached for convenience, open access. The readers are requested to buy the accompanying books on the honour system. Currently, PECE is being read about six thousand times a year off combined sites www.aias.us and www.upitec.org. The papers making up ECE2 (UFT313 – UFT376) are being read about forty two thousand times a year (UFT313 ff on combined sistes).
