Thrust and Electrical Power by Rectifying Aether/ZPE
with Chaos Converters - 03/01/00

for KeelyNet by Jerry W. Decker

This paper and the associated images are intended to illustrate how aether/zpe can be envisioned as energy popping into and out of existence to produce mechanical thrust OR electrical energy as described by Puthoff/Haisch/Rueda as a 'Quantum Vacuum/Foam' (excerpted quote below) and by Henry Moray, Sr. as a 'Sea of Energy'.

The theory rests on many assumptions, and the one that worries us is the most fundamental: that the quantum vacuum produces a real electromagnetic field. Physicists normally treat the virtual photons as just that: virtual, hence unable to produce any far-reaching real effects. But numerous experiments indicate the field may indeed influence matter.

The quantum vacuum creates an attraction between neutral parallel plates, as predicted by Dutch physicist Hendrick Casimir in 1948 and confirmed experimentally several years later. The interaction of the vacuum electromagnetic field with electrons causes a shift of hydrogen spectral lines, as discovered by American physicists Willis Lamb Jr. and Robert Retherford in 1947 and explained later that year by Hans Bethe. And the spontaneous emission of photons can be altered by changing the electromagnetic environment of atoms; this suggests that ``spontaneous'' emission is actually stimulated by the fluctuations of the vacuum.

Distances for Casimir plates.

"...The Casimir force is a short range attraction between any two objects caused by ... electromagnetic fluctuations in the vacuum. ... any two plates, whether conductor or dielectrics, would experience a fourth power force law ... also proportional to the dielectric constant of the plates. ... The equations are only valid down to a separation distance proportional to the minimum wavelength at which the plates are still a good conductor or the dielectric constant is not unity. For distances closer than that ... attractive force will ... increase ... at a rate proportional to the third power of the separation distance. ...

"... The closest separation distance ...[that has been attained is 14 Angstroms]... (about five atoms) with two crossed cylinders of mica. ... the measured force between the two mica cylinders was over ten tons per square meter! ... [To construct a vacuum fluctuation battery, make] ... a wide flat spiral of foil built along the lines of a Slinky toy. ... each turn of the spiral acts against the neighboring turns. The spiral configuration allows substantial compaction of the foil from large spacings to small spacings while maintaining uniform spacing. ... [electric charge could] create an electrostatic repulsion between the plates ... The Casimir force [could] draw the ... leaves together, doing work against the repulsive electric field ...".

Using Aether/ZPE as a propulsive force

Several experimental formats for tapping the ZPE for practical use are under investigation in our laboratory. An early one of interest is based on the idea of a Casimir pinch effect in non-neutral plasmas, basically a plasma equivalent of Forward's electromechanical charged-plate collapse (see Puthoff, 1990). The underlying physics is described in a paper submitted for publication by myself and M. Piestrup, and it is illustrative that the first of several patents issued to a consultant to our laboratory, K.R. Shoulders, contains the descriptive phrase "... energy is provided... and the ultimate source of this energy appears to be the zero-point radiation of the vacuum continuum."

".... Many researchers see the vacuum as a central ingredient of 21st- Century physics. Some even believe the vacuum may be harnessed to provide a limitless supply of energy. This report summarizes an attempt to find an experiment that would test the Haisch, Rueda and Puthoff (HRP) conjecture that the mass and inertia of a body are induced effects brought about by changes in the quantum-fluctuation energy of the vacuum.... It was possible to find an experiment that might be able to prove or disprove that the inertial mass of a body can be altered by making changes in the vacuum surrounding the body."

In 1958 Dutch physicist M.J. Spaarnay carried out a series of experiments based on Casimir's proposal and found that the force did not approach zero when the thermal radiation was reduced to low intensity. Instead there was a residual attractive force that would persist even at absolute zero.

The residual force is directly proportional to the area of the plates and inversely proportional to the fourth power of their separation; the constant of proportionality is 1.3 X 10-18th erg-centimeter.

Although such a force is small, it is measurable if the plates are sufficiently close together. For plates with an area of one square centimeter separated by .5 micrometer the Casimir force is equivalent to the weight of .2 milligram.

For the purposes of this paper, the radiations from aether/zpe quanta are thought to emanate from all surface areas as they pop in and out of existence.

This all pervading quantum foam would appear as 'noise' as described in a recent fascinating article in New Scientist - Random Reality.

Space and the material world could be created out of nothing but noise. That's the startling conclusion of a new theory that attempts to explain the stuff of reality, as Marcus Chown reports

IF YOU COULD LIFT A CORNER of the veil that shrouds reality, what would you see beneath? Nothing but randomness, say two Australian physicists. According to Reginald Cahill and Christopher Klinger of Flinders University in Adelaide, space and time and all the objects around us are no more than the froth on a deep sea of randomness.

Perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that randomness is a part of the Universe. After all, physicists tell us that empty space is a swirling chaos of virtual particles. And randomness comes into play in quantum theory--when a particle such as an electron is observed, its properties are randomly selected from a set of alternatives predicted by the equations.

But Cahill and Klinger believe that this hints at a much deeper randomness. "Far from being merely associated with quantum measurements, this randomness is at the very heart of reality," says Cahill. If they are right, they have created the most fundamental of all physical theories, and its implications are staggering. "Randomness generates everything," says Cahill. "It even creates the sensation of the 'present', which is so conspicuously absent from today's physics."

A better definition of what is Zero Point Energy comes from the University of Virginia and says;

All objects in our universe have wave-like characteristics that manifest themselves in certain circumstances. These wave-like characteristics become more significant as objects becomes smaller. Their wave-like characteristics allow small particles to have ill-defined locations.

To understand what I mean by "ill-defined locations", consider a wave on the surface of a lake. There is no one point at which this wave is located--it is located over a region of the water's surface. Waves don't have well defined locations.

Similarly, if you observe an electron, which is really a wave, there is no one point at which that electron is located--it is located over a region of space. Because of the detailed relationships between wavelength, frequency, and energy, the smaller the region of space in which the electron-wave can be found, the higher its energy must be.

Thus an electron that is localized at all--that is known to be within a certain region of space--must have a certain minimum energy, even if it is stationary. This minimum energy is called zero point energy and it is a consequence of trying to localize the particle within a certain region of space. Since the zero point energy is a base level and can't be reduced, you can't use zero point energy to do anything useful. It's just there.

It's just 'there'....and it CAN be used BECAUSE it is a wave, waves can be intercepted and RECTIFIED, Nature does it and one day, in the very near future, we too will learn to utilize this enormous energy source.

Peter Lindemann wrote on the differences between aether and electricity for Borderlands.

As of June 16th and 17th at the KeelyNet Convergence 2001 conference in Dallas, many of us, including Peter Lindemann, feel major strides have been made in our collective understandings about how to tap into the aether/zpe energies which could well lead to a self-sustaining overunity device which might be capable of powering a small load in the near future.

You should seriously consider investing in two items, one is the book and/or video produced by Lindemann, the other is the book by Gerry Vassilatos, Secrets of Cold War Technology, click on 'new books from AUP'. At this conference, several key principles were presented and discussed;

  • 1 - unidirectional discharges without any reflected energy as EV Gray achieved with his power conversion tube based on Teslas move from AC to high intensity, short duration pulse DC to produce phenomena - Gray referred to it as 'splitting the positive' which we understand to mean never letting the unidirectional arc discharge be allowed to strike zero which would cause a back reflection, instead the power conversion tube uses a carbon block on the receiving lower potential side of the arc which slows the discharge down to +12vdc, thus 'squeezing' or 'splattering' the entrained aether/zpe into the copper mesh as shown in John Bedini's Power Conversion Tube
  • 2 - Bill Mullers use of 'river sand' magnetite mixed with a fixing agent to produce a variable reluctance core which responds instantly to changes in magnetic flux polarity
  • 3 - a unique zero resistance core design where an increase in the current required by the load results in no resistance to the magnet motion past the coil core, the design for a normal solenoidal coil has the wire wound from top to bottom and as the magnet passes the coil, the resistance to its passage increases as the load current requirements increase (remember the old army hand cranked telephone field generator - the more load you hook to it, the harder it is to turn the handle), this new design has a core where the winding begins roughly 1/3 to 1/2 down the length of the core and the windings increase in turns as it approaches the bottom of the core, taking the form of a cone with the apex pointing up, this is quite similar to the HomoPolar motor which does not experience any resistance no matter how much current is extracted by the load devices.

  • 4 - aether/zpe entrainment as described earlier in this paper
  • 5 - using bifilar windings and pulses to increase efficiency and even to produce overunity as Doug Konzen appears to be getting and who some of us feel is a key player in the search for a working, FREELY SHARED overunity device. We have high hopes for Doug and he is an inspiration to others, check out his website.

  • You can follow up on much of this and keep track as new details come in by going to the KeelyNet Interact Discussion List which is publicly archived and available for viewing as well as the What's New page.

    I also want to add the important observation made by Gerald Orlowski based on the work of Rory Johnson that magnetism attracts to itself as opposed to electricity which repels itself.

    "...Faraday had a great teaching on this subject, he stated, "When a current suddenly ceases, it can INDUCE a current IN THE SAME WIRE which is stronger than the original current. Thus, by conservation of force, there must be some force present, AN OPERATIVE, other than electric force. This force is probably the MAGNETIC FORCE." Science had this enlightening teaching over 150 years ago! Unbelievable!..."

    So what is different between these two energy FORMS? As we know, electrical flow argues, that is, it sparks, short circuits, and must be CAREFULLY insulated, Magnetic structures, rather, want to SHARE their flow, and are compatible to the Universal Force. This new energy FORM responds when it is needed as well as HOW it is needed, manifesting as a MEASURABLE current.

    Thus, in defining these different energies, it is important to understand that although electrical and magnetic (energy) work with similar ATTITUDES, the MANNER in which they work, sets up a differing energy effect. THINK MAGNETIC THINK MAGNETIC.

    • there was a material and/or a shape that would intercept the energies produced by this randomly appearing 'noise' of the quantum foam?
    • this material and/or shape, depending on its ability to interact with this quantum noise, could be used to produce either a mechanical force or an electric current?
    • this material and/or shape had the ability to absorb and redirect the random and chaotic appearances of this quantum foam so that it would effectively have one side that was polarized as a receptor, the other side as an emitter, where the emitter would radiate a repelling force or conduct an electric current?
    • this material exists everywhere but is so diffuse and randomly directed as to cancel out its weak abilities?

    By using the above described material/shape so that when polarized, it would function as a check valve to produce either a mechanical pressure or as a diode for electrical current, we could collimate and channel ambient energy flows from these random quantum foam appearances into a preferred direction.

    The collimation of the random aether/zpe radiations will produce either mechanical thrust or electricity, depending on the properties of the material/shape used and based on a long proposed 'Aether/ZPE Spectrum'.

    The idea being that aether/zpe consists of a band of frequencies far higher than anything we can measure, since it suffuses, permeates, creates and sustains all matter and energy.

    When these high frequency aether/zpe waves are slowed down and extended they produce magnetism. When magnetism is slowed and extended, it produces electricity, then light, heat, sound, physical vibration and matter. The reverse effect is E=MC^ where matter is dissociated on a nuclear level to yield tremendous energies as it returns up the spectrum to aether/zpe.

    Each of these gradations has its own spectrum just as each color can be subdivided for many shades.

    Quantum Foam illustrations of Aether/ZPE

    The background noise of Aether/ZPE popping in and out of existence, suffuses all matter and space, in sufficient density near mass to produce the ubiquitous effect we call 'gravity'.

    The Aether/ZPE noise magnified to show clusters of primary points that can be further enlarged to show their structure.

    The noise clusters magnified to show as 'primary points' and whose energy radiates in all directions from each central point as it explodes into being.

    In a way, Aether/ZPE is akin to the random movements of Brownian motion and to the NEGentropic heat collection of Maxwells Demon.

    The Standing Wave of Matter

    It is the flow of this aether/zpe as one or more frequencies into matter, where it is REFLECTED FROM THE CENTER to phase conjugate with incoming aether/zpe as shown in this standing wave animation.

    For our purposes, we are seeking to allow the passage of the random chaos of the aether/zpe radiations through our check valves or diodes.

    Since this 'theoretical' material or shape would function like a check valve to produce mechanical thrust or a diode to rectify the aether/zpe down to an electric current;

    then one such unit would produce a tiny amount of thrust or current;

    whereas many such check valves - all oriented in one direction, subject to a wider exposure of aether/zpe and over a small surface area,

    would produce a combined emitter pushing effect that could be made to emanate in any preferred direction, to provide lift or thrust or, as noted earlier with the right material/shape to produce an electric current.

    It would function like a 'natural' pump which, when placed in a balanced medium and turned on, will draw in the polarized, rectified, randomized ambient medium in one end and push it out the other side of the pump as a collimated force.

    Think of a car moving at 60 mph. When it stops, you are pushed against the steering wheel, with the accepted 'understanding' being that this is caused by 'inertia'.

    Some today view this as the entrained viscosity of the background aether/zpe when it is disturbed as matter moves through the medium. The more rapidly the mass accelerates, the greater will be the disturbance.

    If you sit on a motorcycle, gun the engine to high rpms and pop the clutch, you will be left on the ground as the accelerating motorcycle breaks away from you. Pushed back by the 'dilatant matrix' of the aether. The rapid acceleration and associated stresses on all the connected pieces of that motorcycle do not transfer to you when simply sitting unattached to the seat.

    As of 03/20/00, a recent update came to my attention of a superb chart of Zero Point Energy Effects on Mass (as mirrored below), constructed by Robert E. Brady with his website that describes three types of gravity theories.

    If we create a well or hole in the zpe, then mass will 'fall' or rather BE PUSHED into that hole. As written up elsewhere on KeelyNet, a German researcher named Zielinski claims his private group has this figured out though he won't give any details. We were able to get him to admit it used high voltage.

    He said the mass to be moved would have something like a 100 pound weight placed in the front of it, the gravity well is created just ahead of this weight and the 100 pound weight along with the weight of the mass is pushed in that direction. By adjusting the location of the well, you can make it move in any desired direction.

    Thinking along those lines, the chaos converter could simply be an aether/zpe ABSORBER, where the polarized side FACING UP would cause the mass attached to them to FALL or BE PUSHED upward! Kind of like a pump, creating a suction and if its strong enough, it would start 'sucking air' because it would suck faster than the ambient/zpe could flow in to fill it up. So it absorbs more on one side than on another.

    Also elsewhere on KeelyNet are the comments by the high priest in charge of the Ark of the Covenant, claiming that the giant stone obelisks in Ethiopia were lifted into place using the 'celestial fire' that came from the Ark.

    As well as the Dendera photos from 1,000 BC in the crypt at the Temple of Hathor, showing men holding what appear to be 5 foot long, 1 foot wide, tapered glass tubes with a snake in each, connected by a braided cable to a djet capacitor stack.

    No one KNOWS what this was for but most of what I've seen points to the probability of creating a plasma vortex or a successive stream of high intensity, short duration discharges through the tube, that would entrain aether/zpe into a collimated beam directed at mass to cause it to absorb, radiate and repel surrounding aether/zpe, thus losing weight.

    As of 03/31/00, additional information that correlates perfectly with this file can be found in the U.S. Patent 5,590,031 by Mead on Dec. 31, 1996.

    Excerpts from the patent;

    The invention relates generally to conversion of electromagnetic radiation energy to electrical energy, and, more particularly, to conversion of high frequency bandwidths of the spectrum of a type of radiation known as zero point electromagnetic radiation to electrical energy.

    The existence of zero point electromagnetic radiation was discovered in 1958 by the Dutch physicist M. J. Sparnaay. Mr. Sparnaay continued the experiments carried out by Hendrik B. G. Casimir in 1948 which showed the existence of a force between two uncharged parallel plates which arose from electromagnetic radiation surrounding the plates in a vacuum.

    Mr. Sparnaay discovered that the forces acting on the plates arose from not only thermal radiation but also from another type of radiation now known as classical electromagnetic zero point radiation. Mr. Sparnaay determined that not only did the zero point electromagnetic radiation exist in a vacuum but also that it persisted even at a temperature of absolute zero.

    Because it exists in a vacuum, zero point radiation is homogeneous and isotropic as well as ubiquitous. In addition, since zero point radiation is also invariant with respect to Lorentz transformation, the zero point radiation spectrum has the characteristic that the intensity of the radiation at any frequency is proportional to the cube of that frequency. Consequently, the intensity of the radiation increases without limit as the frequency increases resulting in an infinite energy density for the radiation spectrum.

    With the introduction of the zero point radiation into the classical electron theory, a vacuum at a temperature of absolute zero is no longer considered empty of all electromagnetic fields. Instead, the vacuum is now considered as filled with randomly fluctuating fields having the zero point radiation spectrum.

    The special characteristics of the zero point radiation which are that it has a virtually infinite energy density and that it is ubiquitous (even present in outer space) make it very desirable as an energy source.

    However, because high energy densities exist at very high radiation frequencies and because conventional methods are only able to convert or extract energy effectively or efficiently only at lower frequencies at which zero point radiation has relatively low energy densities, effectively tapping this energy source has been believed to be unavailable using conventional techniques for converting electromagnetic energy to electrical or other forms of easily useable energy.

    Consequently, zero point electromagnetic radiation energy which may potentially be used to power interplanetary craft as well as provide for society's other needs has remained unharnessed.

    What is therefore needed is a system which is capable of converting high frequency electromagnetic radiation energy into another form of energy which can be more readily used to provide power for transportation, heating, cooling as well as various other needs of society. What is also needed is such a system which may be used to provide energy from any location on earth or in space.

    Essentially, the system of the present invention utilizes a pair of structures for receiving incident electromagnetic radiation which may be propagating through a vacuum or any other medium in which the receiving structures may be suitably located. The system of the present invention is specifically designed to convert the energy of zero point electromagnetic radiation; however, it may also be used to convert the energy of other types of electromagnetic radiation. The receiving structures are preferably composed of dielectric material in order to diffract and scatter the incident electromagnetic radiation.

    In addition, the receiving structures are of a volumetric size selected to enable the structures to resonate at a high frequency of the incident electromagnetic radiation based on the parameters of frequency of the incident radiation and propagation characteristics of the medium and of the receiving structures.

    Since zero point radiation has the characteristic that its energy density increases as its frequency increases, greater amounts of electromagnetic energy are available at higher frequencies. Consequently, the size of the structures are preferably miniaturized in order to produce greater amounts of energy from a system located within a space or area of a given size.

    In this regard, the smaller the size of the receiving structures, the greater the amount of energy that can be produced by the system of the present invention.

    At resonance, electromagnetically induced material deformations of the receiving structures produce secondary fields of electromagnetic energy therefrom which may have evanescent energy densities several times that of the incident radiation.

    The structures are of different sizes so that the secondary fields arising therefrom are of different frequencies. The difference in volumetric size is very small so that interference between the two emitted radiation fields, and the receiving structures at the two different frequencies produces a beat frequency radiation which has a much lower frequency than the incident radiation.

    The beat frequency radiation preferably is at a frequency which is sufficiently low that it may be relatively easily converted to useable electrical energy. In contrast, the incident zero point radiation has its desirable high energy densities at frequencies which are so high that conventional systems for converting the radiation to electrical energy either cannot effectively or efficiently so convert the radiation energy or simply cannot be used to convert the radiation energy for other reasons.

    The system of the present invention also includes an antenna which receives the beat frequency radiation. The antenna may be a conventional metallic antenna such as a loop or dipole type of antenna or a rf cavity structure which partially encloses the receiving structures.

    The antenna feeds the radiation energy to an electrical conductor (in the case of a conventional dipole or comparable type of antenna) or to a waveguide (in the case of a rf cavity structure). The conductor or waveguide feeds the electrical current (in the case of the electrical conductor) or the electromagnetic radiation (in the case of the waveguide) to a converter which converts the received energy to useful electrical energy.

    The converter preferably includes a tuning circuit or comparable device so that it can effectively receive the beat frequency radiation. The converter may include a transformer to convert the energy to electrical current having a desired voltage. In addition, the converter may also include a rectifier to convert the energy to electrical current having a desired waveform.

    ZPE appears across a broad spectrum of frequencies and one of the interesting comments in the patent is on page 13;

    "Since, as set forth hereinabove, the energy density of the zero point radiation increases as the frequency of the radiation increases, it is desirable that the spheres resonate in as high a bandwidth of frequencies as possible. Because the spheres 212 and 214 must be small in direct proportion to the wavelength of the high frequencies of the incident electromagnetic radiation 216 at which resonance is desirably obtained, the spheres 212 and 214 are preferably MICROSCOPIC in size.

    Current lithographic techniques are capable of manufacturing such microscopically small spheres mounted on a suitable substrate thereby providing a suitably miniaturized system 210.

    A miniaturized system enhances the energy output capability of the system by enabling it to resonate at higher frequencies at which there are correspondingly higher energy densities. Consequently, utilization of array 238 in the system 210 enhances the maximum amount of electrical energy provided by the system 210."

    Lithographic techniques may be more amenable to manufacturing microscopically small receiving structures 212 and 214 which may be disc shaped, semispherical or have another shape other than as shown in FIGS. 4 and 5. Consequently, the receiving means 212 and 214 may accordingly have such alternative shapes rather than the spherical shape shown in FIGS. 4 and 5. In addition, a large number of small spheres may be manufactured by bulk chemical reactions. Packing a volume with such spheres in close proximity could enhance the output of energy.

    Embodiment 210 also includes a plurality of antennas 222 positioned preferably between the spheres 212 and 214 which receive the beat frequency radiation 224 produced by the interference between the secondary radiation 218 and 220. The antennas 222 are shown as loop antennas 222 but may be any other suitable type of antennas as well.

    Embodiment 210 has a plurality of electrical conductors 226 which preferably include traces mounted on the substrate 236 which occupies a finite volume. The electrical conductors 226 feed the electrical output from the antennas 222 to a suitable converter 228 which preferably includes tuning capacitor 230, transformer 232 and rectifier 234, as with embodiments 10 and 110.

    Therefore, the interception of local ZPE can be so designed as to be redirected to produce a repellent force, to produce a 'hole in space' in which mass would 'fall' OR can be interferred with to generate an 'electromagnetic beat frequency' that will induce electrical current for power.

    In a more outrageous vein, in legends and myths, we read about flying animals such as Bellerophons' flying horse Pegasus and references to other winged creatures such as gryphons, giant Roc birds, and other fantastic things whose weight to wingspread area don't make sense.

    We also are told through legend and myth about the witches flying broom and the flying carpet of ancient Persia.

    What if the ancients discovered this natural shape and/or material which by itself had an almost imperceptible effect, yet in accumulation, could redirect the chaos of the ambient aether/zpe into a specific direction to produce a useful effect such as a cancellation of 'gravity' and even a thrust in a preferred direction?

    The carpet could also be kept earthbound by laying it on the floor or ground with the polarized side facing outward in all directions, thus losing any lifting abilities due to smaller surface area and dispersion of the effect.

    Since this ambient aether/zpe originated chaotic energy, which appears and disappears to saturate all local mass, would be intercepting, collimating and redirecting these ambient chaotic natural energies, no power would have been required in the form of electricity, magnetism or human physical effort.

    Thus they had no recourse for understanding the true cause, having to resort to magic and the claim that jinn, demons or some other 'supernatural' force was the lifting and propelling agent.

    If such a material having this aether/zpe chaos converter effect were to be woven into a carpet with the right polarization, so that the effect emanated from one side of the carpet, then it could well be that flying carpets were possible by those who studied and understood such matters.

    As of 04/06/00, a fascinating piece of information came in that ties in perfectly with this document which I've been working on since around October 99' now. As you can see it relies on a moving Casimir junction to produce mechanical thrust. It involves a new $300,000 research project sponsored by NASA and refers to a vacuum fluctuation tap which occurs on microscopic levels as proposed in this document.
