3D cloaking changing gravitational lensing ?

  1. Jan 7, 2012 #1
    Do the new optical and time shifting versions of 3D cloaking present a challenge to gravitational lensing as a valid proof of gravity ?

    Am curious if the time shifting constituent of the theories can mimic the redshifting observed in arcs and lenses also.

    Seems that with the findings of the crystalline structures of of glasses around bodies and amorphourus glasses around systems and galactic scale structures, the phase shifting of these materials would have some profound implications here.

    Maybe enough to cover the dark matter part of the spectrum (sic), if not the dark energy proportion.

    I see there has already been some discussion on this matter,but has anyone looked at the redshift (angle) yet ?

    Why would it?

    I've never heard of this. What do you mean?
