Weight and Measures
December 1, 2014
The 25th meeting of the General Conference on Weights and Measures (Conférence Générale des Poids et Mesures, CGPM) took place in Versailles from 18 to 20 November 2014, successfully bringing together the delegates of the governments of the Member States with observers from the Associates of the CGPM. The President of the French Académie des Sciences, Professor Philippe Taquet, chaired the meeting, which included presentations from the CIPM President, BIPM Director, the Presidents of the CIPM Consultative Committees, three international organizations, and a number of invited speakers. The CGPM adopted five resolutions addressing scientific and institutional matters, including the future redefinition of the International System of Units, the SI.
This is very interesting. Sometimes I have been thinking it is at all possible for a human being to keep a measure in its absolute form, because the universe is in expansion and that can have an ftfect to the bonds of all the material- but perhaps the effect is so general that nobody can even imagine or to think to detect it. until the material collapses- when its relative bonds has come to some level unknown which cannot maintain this universal structure any more. This structure is maintained now by the balance of the expansion of the universe and all gravities. So all measures have some kind of unseen relativity. But we are moving in the same relativity so it does not matter so long there is material.
