Boy, well, I don't know where to start... were people that dumb in 2003, cuz I was there and I don't recall being as stupid as some of the posts here. It seems the fiercest defenders of Huthcison seem to know him personally somehow. Hutchison has been tinkering with this "effect" of his, using Absolute Zero as some sort of plot device to confuse the 90% of people dumb enough to get their hopes up about this. Why do intellectuals trick people? one person asked: it's because they realise they are smarter than a good portion of people and the rest he could fool with camera tricks. Factoid that has not come up once in this thread: he has been developing this since 1979 and still not found a way to get it to the masses? Oh I know why, the government! Now, at this point common sense should kick in once you realise that even with the full strength of the Canadian govt (hold your laughter) and the American govt, plus all the other countries that would want in on this *STILL* have not been able to reproduce ANYTHING Hutchison has claimed. Hell, he could have threw flyers out of a skyscraper with the plans laid out on them if he REALLY wanted to get this idea out there.
Hutchison is a megalomaniac with a perverted Tesla obsession. I think that if Tesla were still alive today, Hutchison would be the one to murder him. He's the Mark David Chapman of the science community, lil lulz.
I TRIED very damn hard to keep an open mind on this subject, but being a student of film, camera tricks can be spotted a mile away. I was seven when I got tired of playing with magnets, camera tricks and magnets have gotten nerds riled up for decades, I am beside myself.
I was glad that by 2006 some pragmatists finally stepped in with some clarity on this thread. Oh, and by the way at Ab.0 matter doesn't lose its ability to reflect or absorb light, tho a photon would stop moving at that temp. In any event, a BLACK object would absorb ALL the visible light and reflect none, so an object at Ab. 0 couldn't exist that way very long if it were black
The absence of proof is not the proof of absence, however in this case all the proof appears to be completely faked with no technical explanations or corroborating evidence, ie B.S.
A Tesla obsessed narcissist/megalomaniac that plays with large magnets. Hutchison effect should be called Hutchison Complex. Case closed as far as I'm concerned.
