I agree fully we must keep faith in the ideas even though to date we
haven't seen anything that any of us have built and shared.

I agree with that too, though not so much as duplicating one persons
work as looking for correlations from others that might bolster the
claim and/or aledged technology.
Like many I've communicated, I think when we actually achieve it,
first of all we will be stupified at how simple it was and that we
could collectively overlook something so obvious for so long,
secondly will come all the permutations as many other and in some
cases totally new branches of science will open up.
My dream is to fly with a gravity reduction belt...I expect to
experience that before I'm ready for the next class...<g>..
