Special Relativity and Newtonian Mechanics

Often times I wonder, what if someone, possibly a journal editor, objected to the validity of special relativity based on the example of a system of a rotating hemisphere that special relativity violates Newtonian mechanics and prohibited it from being published reasoning that it can't possibly be correct.

We will probably still be in the dark ages. It looks like the similar argument is in effect in the case of dipole gravity. Despite its elegant solutions to the jets and the flat rotational velocity curves, the theory "unfortunately" predicts the possibility of extracting the gravitational space energy into a useful form. How can this be possible?

I think it only tells us that the source of gravitation is not heavy materialistic terrestrial particles. If we put the particles that are responsible for the gravitation in a sealed bottle of a jar, it won't stay inside. So, the kinetic theory of gases no longer applies in the case of gravitation, where the principle of the local energy conservation was derived and liberally applied in all the branches of physics without a serious question. Contrary to the molecular gases, the particles that govern the gravitational phenomenon is not confinable, ie, a sheet rock or metal does not block the gravitational field. And those particles can carry energy from infinity to infinity. If that is out of question, anything should be possible. So, like in the case of special relativity, if we threw away dipole gravity just because it predicts the energy extraction from the space, we may be throwing the baby out with the bath water.

I believe it must be dealt with in a totally separate manner. Because there will be solutions for it in the near future. It must be emphasized that dipole gravity is not a new creation of a theory of gravitation. It was there in general relativity all the time. It has shown a fraction of its face in the form of the Lens-Thirring force with the reversed mirror image of its sign throughout all those years. People in the field didn't dig deeply enough to find it. And no one tells us to perform research in any field of science other than our own instinct to smell and locate where the secret of the nature may be hiding and lurking.

As anyone may have experienced in their lives, the closer the object you want to find is from your reach, the harder it is to actually locate it.
