Overview of 'It's About Time' book and Allan Variance equations
David Allan explains the three equations he
was instrumental in deriving, which have been fundamental in international
time-keeping and telecommunications. Displayed to his left is the Time
Lord award he received and the book he published last week.

Recognized with the "Time Lord Award" in 2011, and second
recipient of the I.I. Rabi Award, after Rabi in 1984, who invented the atomic
clock, and with his Allan Variance set to be featured in a special issue of
IEEE-UFFC on its 50 anniversary in 2016; my dad, David W. Allan, has just
published his book that includes a chapter on energy.

I guess it's family feature time. Yesterday, I posted a story about an interview
I did with my brother, Nathan, who has become an expert in the subject of the
A week ago, my dad, David W. Allan, as a world premier atomic clock physicist,
finished a book, which is kind of a biography and best thinking compendium
titled It's About Time,
subtitled: "Science Harmonized with Religion" with sub-sub-title:
"Where are we in God's Time?" It's available at Amazon.com
(link credits PES with the referral).
Seeing that, I think you'll appreciate more where I'm coming from in bringing up
spiritual and political topics in my coverage of exotic free energy technology.
Like my dad, I see them as tightly intertwined; and like my dad, I'm not afraid
to bring these subjects up in a professional setting. He's been able to rise to
great prominence, not despite his reputation as the "praying
physicist" but because of it. He says he would not have gotten the
inspiration behind his work if it were not for his religious foundations.
In 2011, he was awarded the "Time Lord Award" in Edinburgh, Scotland, by the International Telecom Sync community, recognizing his contribution with the derivation of the Time Variance, which is used to characterize the performance of telecom networks. And yes, in receiving that award, he acknowledged God as the source of his wisdom and inspiration. It is the last of the three equations shown on the white board derived in the late
In 1984, he was the second person to receive the I.I.
Rabi Award, the first being given to Rabi himself in 1983, the man who is
primarily responsible for the invention of the atomic clock, which has increased
the accuracy of time-keeping one billion-fold over using the rotation of the
earth in relation to the stars. The award, which reads as a Who's Who of
time-keeping, is given annually at IEEE's Frequency Control symposium and
includes five Nobel Prize winners, including Rabi, 1944, and Norman Ramsey, 1989,
who was the third to receive the Rabi award, after my dad. The IEEE list
inadvertently omits notating that Dave Wineland is also a Nobel Prize winner.
Yesterday, I shot a video of my dad describing three equations that he was
involved in developing, which are fundamental to international time-keeping. The
first was his master's thesis, which his colleagues named the "Allan
Variance," which has become one of the most oft-cited phrases in clock
metrology literature including doctoral dissertations, which is ironic, because
he never received a doctorate himself, being too busy with work, family, and a
church calling. Today, a Google search for "Allan
variance" gives 51,000 results. The misspelling with "Allen"
gives nearly another 8,700 results. When he was defending his Master's Thesis in
1965, the reviewers asked him, "What are you going to do for an
encore?" having at least a glimmer of it's significance.
In 2016, the IEEE-UFFC is going to be running a special
feature focusing exclusively on the 50th anniversary of its first publication of the
Allan Variance in 1966.
You would think that with all these accolades, he would have a
healthy dose of ego. However, one of the things I've respected most about my
dad, since I was a teen, or younger, is his humility. He consistently gives God
and colleague collaboration the credit for his success, and doesn't let it get
to his head. One of his favorite sayings has been: "There is no limit to
the good you can do if you don't worry about whom gets the credit."
He doesn't treat the FedEx driver with any less respect than his esteemed
colleagues. His friendship with Ron, the FedEx driver, may be one of the reasons
Ron still delivers in our valley after 22 years. He's always happy to see me, as
I've moved from place to place in the valley.
He truly tries to practice what he believes, and share it with others. When he
finds a book he likes, he buys a case to hand them out or sell them at cost.
He's on his 17th case of Visions
Kudos aside, this story does have relevance to exotic free energy. My dad
devoted an entire chapter to energy in his book, specifically referring to the
kinds of exotic free energy technologies we address, and driving home the point
I've made so many times in the past couple of years that we get the
government we deserve, and we get the energy we deserve; and as long as we
deserve tyranny, that is what we'll have. Free energy is all about freedom, and
until we deserve freedom, we're not likely to see these modalities roll out to
the mainstream. He says something to this effect in the overview recording
we did yesterday.
He also said that his unified field theory is highly relevant to understanding
free energy since it describes a field from which such energy can be derived,
ubiquitous and inexhaustible.
Here's the video of our interview:
Kevn Lambson, my brother-in-law, who did our logo, put up the http://ItsAboutTimeBook.com
website; and the book cover was done by my married niece, Rachel Oliveri, who is
an amazing photographer.
I've helped a little with the editing, though I've not had a chance yet to get
through all of it. The list of credits for people involved in my dad's book is
very long, including many of his hundreds of citations. But he gives foremost
credit to my mom, as a supportive companion and inspiration.
I've been taking photos and shooting videos of my mom's method of drying
banana's which we'll be open sourcing, which could create jobs for people who
live near a grocery store, to buy the over-ripe bananas and turn them into a
yummy and nutritious treat. I'll be posting that soon. That's just one of many
features I could do on her. She was drying fruit leather (roll-ups) when I was a
kid, decades before it was available commercially. She's a master herbalist.
Don't forget to visit my dad's website: http://AllansTIME.com
for which I've been webmaster for about 15 years. And see the story we did about
home that has ten different solar principles integrated into it.
