Biography

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Samuel Richard 'Dick' Hazelett received his BA from Oberlin College in 1965 and two MAs from the University of Texas (1969) and Boston University (1973).

"My very good friend Dick Hazelett passed away on 23 July 2002 at his home in Colchester, Vermont. GED Associate Editor Howard Hayden first introduced Dick to me some years back. From then on, I knew Dick as a steady participant in the on-paper activities of Galilean Electrodynamics and the in-person conferences of the Natural Philosophy Alliance. He was what I referred to as ?the Good Reviewer' ? a person who got thoroughly engrossed in whatever I asked him to look at. You will find him having done exactly that, along with his long-time Colorado friend, Dean Turner, in GED vol. 12, no. 2 (2001).

"Now Dick will be very much missed by very many people here, and around the world. Not only was he connected to GED, and to NPA, but also to family, extended family, and friends all over the place. I was notified about the sad loss by Dick's Berkeley CA housemate, Chaplain, and dear friend, Kaaren Ray. She and Dick's Colchester friend Val Kagan had collected many interesting facts about Dick's life, some of which are reproduced below:

"Along with Dean Turner, Dick had co-authored or co-edited many books. One of the books is very well-known to many GED readers: The Einstein Myth and the Ives Papers. Dick was impassioned by studies centering on the many controversial views related to Eintein's relativity theory. The same is true in regard to Darwin's evolution theory, and many issues in ethics and religion. Other books resulting from the Hazelett/Turner collaboration include Benevolent Living, which deals with connections between science and religious philosophy. Dick was the researcher for Turner's books Commitment to Care and Escape from God. Most recently they produced Coherence Theory of Truth. Dick's last book, An Engineer's Path to God, was not completely finished. The titles of some of the Chapters show how broad his interests were: ?Religion for Scientific Skeptics', ?New Help from Astronomy, Biology, Physics', ?Self-Consistency', ?Benevolence', ?Truth and Need', ?Evil versus the Good', ?Religion Clears the Way for Natural Science'.

"Dick was an extraordinarily fast reader. He consumed tens of thousands of books from ancient times to the present day. Theology and Philosophy were his lifelong interests, and he pursued them formally through Master's Degrees in Philosophy at Boston University and the University of Texas in Austin. For the past three years, Dick had made Berkeley CA his second home in order to pursue doctoral-level Theology work in the Graduate Theological Union. He was formally enrolled this past year for graduate-degree work through the Jesuit School of Theology. He was well known and much beloved in the GTU library, bookstore, the refectory, and the Berkeley community at large. He was that amazing older gentleman riding the recumbent bike! Up until his death, he either walked or rode that bike over twenty-five miles a week.

"Dick had worked with his father in the early development of the Hazelett Twin-Belt continuous metal casting machine. He was involved for many years in the mechanical design activities and intellectual property protection of Hazelett Strip-Casting Corporation. He is a named inventor on eleven patents. He also had a big passion for photography, and documented the life of the company through candid photos of its summer picnics and Christmas parties."

Cynthia Whitney - Galilean Electrodynamics

Richard Hazelett of Colchester, Vermont, an engineer and successful businessman in the machining industry, who was co-editor of the self-published book, The Einstein Myth and the Ives Papers: A Counter-Revolution in Physics (1979, ISBN-0-8159-5823-4), passed away shortly after the 9th Annual Meeting of the Natural Philosophy Alliance (NPA) at San Louis Obispo, California (May 13-17, 2002). He was a dedicated member of the NPA. The seminal Einsteinian relativity criticism of RCA television pioneer Herbert Eugene Ives, which was widely published in major peer-reviewed journals?and then ?forgotten? and ignored by the establishment (see IE #38)?was resurrected by the work of Dick Hazelett. We will sorely miss him. In his later years, Dick spent much of his time in philosophical pursuits at the intersection of science and religion. He was born a Mormon, but later in life converted to Judaism. - Infinite Energy #47

Description

With excerpts from Ives' correspondence, this book contains Dean Turner's "The Einstein Myth" plus a condensation of "Euclid or Einstein" by J.J. Callahan and papers and comments by others. These insights open the door to greater freedom of creative research, speculation, progress and practical discovery in the fields of physics and cosmology. The notes alone reveal startling, unexpected, little-known facts that read like a mystery novel.

One of the most remarkable publications in the history of relativity theories, but nonetheless put aside by academic physics.  To understand the importance of this collection one needs to know who Ives was: one of the pioneers of the atomic clock.

Review
"You have in fact reduced things to commonsense by keeping clear of tensors and other impressive complications." --Sir Joseph Larmor

"Ives works with physical concepts, whereas Einstein, et al, make mathematical fummadiddles give them the 'right' answers." --Elmore Everest Butterfield

Does Relativity Theory Explain Too Much?

(1997)

S. Richard Hazelett
PO Box 600, Colchester, VT 05446, United States; dickh@hazelett.com, (510) 845-2956

1997, 4th (B) Natural Philosophy Alliance Conference, Storrs, CT, United States
Keywords: Relativity

Lookup: relativity (390)

Abstract:

A re-evaluation of Einsteinian relativity in the light of Karl Popper's criterion for scientifically admissible statements. It is urged that a theory explains nothing if i( is employable (0 back up any of multiple outcomes which result from voluntaristic and arbitrary mathematical choices. That is, a theory is invalid, is not a scientific theory, if it is not falsifiable, that is, if it is consistent with multiple sets of facts.



Does Einsteinian Relativity Negate Freedom of Will?

(1997)

S. Richard Hazelett
PO Box 600, Colchester, VT 05446, United States; dickh@hazelett.com, (510) 845-2956

1997, 4th (B) Natural Philosophy Alliance Conference, Storrs, CT, United States

1997, 4th (C) Natural Philosophy Alliance Conference, San Luis Obispo, CA, United States
Keywords: Relativity, Free Will

Lookup: relativity (390), free (7)

Abstract:

The special theory of relativity (STR) has importance extending far beyond natural science. For instance, if the STR is true, our freedom to do as we will is a myth. Specifically, how do you exercise freedom of the will over your present motions, over motions which someone else was allegedly privileged to discover as in the future? The answer is you cannot.

This paper was read in absentia at NPA Conference 4C as "Does Einsteinian Relativity Deny Freedom of the Will?"




Is Quantum Nonlocality for Real?

Special Relativity: The Experiments Equally Support Various Aether Theories

(1998)

S. Richard Hazelett
PO Box 600, Colchester, VT 05446, United States; dickh@hazelett.com, (510) 845-2956

1998, 5th (A) Natural Philosophy Alliance Conference, Philadelphia, PA, United States
Keywords: Special Relativity, Experiments, Aether

Lookup: aether (102), special relativity (125), experiments (25), relativity (390), special (175)

Abstract:

Apparently, the successes of Einstein' s general relativity theory have drawn attention away from his special relativity theory, which is one foundation of the general theory. The successes of special relativity are shown to be equally the successes of aether theory. as developed by George Stokes, G. F. Fitzgerald, H. A. Lorentz. A. A. Michelson. Herbert Ives and Petr Beckman, together with the implications of a new experimental discovery on light aberration by Ronald Hatch. It is submitted that the differing physical implications of the various theories deserve to be brought to the attention of the physics profession generally. Even the general theory should be weighed against the modified versions of Herbert Ives, Robert Dicke and Tom Van Flandern, while reserving for Einstein the intuition that started it all.
