To give you some insight as to just how "sane" this person is, consider the following from their website:

>>>"This Is War!
In my considered opinion, no progress will be made in our understanding of motion, gravity and inertia by having civilized and polite discussions with an entrenched orthodoxy. There is no conspiracy, mind you, just a vested interest in continuing the status quo. Also a significant portion of physicists who believe in the existence of a time dimension do so religiously. They have a faith to uphold and a religion to protect. The only way to destroy their faith and abolish their religion is by forceful conquest and the imposition of a new religion. It's all about religion. That is the lesson of history, so let us not kid ourselves.

It's one thing to peddle snake oil to a sleeping public, it's another to imply that the public is too stupid to realize that it's being duped. Given the increased means of communication available, the public will suddenly wake up. People are not as stupid as the insufferably pompous physics community would have them believe. Soon they will no longer accept absurd dogma from an elitist group on the basis of authority. We, the people, are the authority on what will be done with our money. We will not stand by and allow a science funded with our money commandeered by a bunch of charlatans and crackpots, regardless of how secure they may feel.

The goal of the coming physics revolution is to eradicate all the nonsensical dogma of the spacetime orthodoxy. No stone must be left unturned. We need a new physics based exclusively on particles, their properties and their interactions. To succeed, the rebels need to form a hostile political stronghold outside the walls and hope that they can gain enough converts and defections to eventually breach through. Once they're in, they must pillage and destroy the old order through terror. The leaders of the fortified castle must be put in chains, tarred and feathered and paraded through the streets for all to see (allegorically of course). This is war!"
