Did it spring out of your mind as a result of some sensoy experiences that entered your mind first? Is it the result of anything that you have experienced? If so, what?
I couldn't find the results of the experiment in the literature. Can you ?
No. That could mean that the experiment hasn't been done. If a theory that there are swans living on the far side of the moon springs out of my mind and if I search for an experiment which has tested this theory but don't find one, it probably means that the experiment hasn't been done.
Why not try to perform the experiment yourself? According to your theory, how much reduction in weight would you expect to find for a given increase in temperature? If you can't tell me that, how would I be able to conduct an experiment? I wouldn't know what I was looking for. Should I expect to find a reduction of the same order of magnitude that I calculated in my previous post? Bigger? Smaller? Do you predict that it would be a big enough reduction to be measurable by ordinary kitchen scales? Or will I need more accurate equipment?
My theory provides a qualitative descriptions of physics. Quantitative prediction could commence after the results of the experiment.
But you still haven't described a theory. "W should decrease at increasing T in vacuum." is not a theory. It's a simple one sentence assertion. A bit like "there are swans living on the far side of the moon.". That's not a theory either. To be a theory, you have to tell me why
you think the weight of an object will decrease with increasing temperature. What previous experimental results suggest that your assertion must be true? What's going on at the molecular level in your model? Describe to me the mechanism which results in a reduction in weight. Or perhaps point me to somewhere where you've already described it before.
My theory clears our minds from the illusion of knowledge and provides a simpler description of the universe.
Sounds good. I can't wait to hear it. Your single sentence has not so far achieved that ambitious aim.
How do you calculate the mass of a moving object ?
Various ways that are essentially the same as calculating the mass of a stationary object. i.e. exerting a force on that object and seeing how it behaves.
For example, in a mass spectrometer or a particle accelerator the motion of particles is affected by a magnetic or electric field. The extent to which their trajectories are affected by that magnetic/electric field depends on their masses. In a particle accelerator the large relativistic increase in mass due to the fast movements of the particles has to be accounted for when calculating how strong a magnetic field is required to deflect them into a circular path of the required radius. Similarly, in a mass spectrometer the mass of particles is calculated by observing how much they are deflected by electric and/or magnetic fields.
