Podcast Episode 82: How to Design a Hyperdimensional Physics Experiment

Hyper-D physics
Could be tested with a watch.
So, is Hoagland right?

This is a longer episode, over 40 minutes long. Hopefully I didn’t drone too much. The episode is based on a blog post from last May, going through how one could design an experiment IF you assume EVERY SINGLE BIT of what Richard Hoagland says is true about hyperdimensional physics is true. It’s meticulous. Which is why it’s long. And I show why, quite literally, Richard’s data as they are currently presented are meaningless.

And now, seriously, the next episode will be about claims made by David Sereda on the structure of … stuff. He wasn’t this episode because I had about 40 hrs of Coast to Coast audio to listen to, and I have about 16 hrs left. So, yeah, next time.

BTW, link to the new blog is: WND Watch.



  1. Bravo. I’d like to add that the only statements Hoagland has made about the baseline are the exact opposite of what would satisfy your protocol — namely, he has said in so many words that the Accutron varies its frequency when nothing astronomical is aligning and he’s not near a magic pyramid. Here are his exact words at the Glendale “Awake & Aware” conference last April:

    “It used to be that I could do measurements in my office and I would get nothing but noise—straight line. You have to go to a pyramid, or to that mountain, to get really interesting stuff. Over the last several months, particularly the last several weeks, I have seen readings […] that are as boggling as any at any pyramid anywhere in the world, just sitting there in the office.”

  2. The rational wiki has an article about this, saying that Hoagland’s data “has approximately the same validity as a fortune cookie”.

  3. Stuart,

    Very interesting episode, not sure I understood all of it so I plan to listen to it again. I’ve linked the shownotes to RationalWiki and the shownotes for all your episodes on Hoagland to the Richard C Hoagland page on Wikipedia.

    The ‘Photon Belt’ that Serida mentions might be worth a topic of its own, RationalWiki traces it back to the 50’s, which is 40 years earlier than I thought it had originated, Chris White covers it in his ‘Greg Braden Debunked’ video where he shows Braden claming the Earth is just entering the belt and flashes “No It’s Not!” over his face, a moment that always makes me laugh.

    • Good luck with the Serida episode, just read your Facebook comment, I don’t envy you the struggle.

      • Just read the latest of the Serida quotes you posted and all I can say is “Huh?”, but then I think that is what he relies on, the audience not understanding enough to realize that what he’s saying is complete and utter nonsense. I’m looking forward to the next episode, just “…don’t drive angry…”

      • Yeah, should be an interesting episode. Though I think I have enough material to easily make it a two-parter.

  4. I loved this. A lot of it has been gone through by expat already, but I think you presented the discussion about establishing a baseline very well. BTW, I just posted a new article on Hoagland… I don’t go very far into anything in this one… but I’m getting the ball rolling again… http://interposemission.blogspot.com/2013/08/oh-thats-what-richard-c-hoagland-is.html

  5. For anyone who wants to see just what is inside the watch Richard Hoagland is using for his alleged experiments someone on Youtube has just done a teardown of one.
