What is zero point energy, part two: homage to Tom Bearden

(I wrote and rewrote this post at least four times, and it magically vanished from my file archive. This is the long-promised review of the Tom Bearden website, and clarification of zero point energy. The original bit was about four times this long. In the course of doing that, local NBC affiliate KFOR launched a blog website. The site administrator sent me a personal note with my first submission telling me to put my stuff somewhere else. So, I wrote a series of articles for that site, and fought with him until they were all published in 2009. I present them here, as at the end of October, the KFOR site was deactivated.)

I am back, and with a dull, rusty axe to grind. It was difficult to believe my former ISP, Cox Communications, Inc., discontinued my service because they disliked something I discussed online. But after I asked AT&T about DSL service and they were ready to hook it right up, but added several caveats and required I subscribe to multiple services after demanding my social security number, I started to wonder. Yes, I know I said I'd try to get along without phone and internet service. I thought I could tap a wireless router or service. Where I live is like the lone prairie, and there is no such thing.

So, I got a budget dial-up account instead. Yes, it's slow and frequently disconnects. They didn't ask for my social security number—all they needed was to be paid: good, old-world craftsmanship. I'm happy as hell keeping everyone off the considerable fiber optic network (we paid for) was so profitable for the few too-rich men who stole the money we prepaid to connect homes and businesses, and I understand the federal government was completely helpless, slavishly courting Big Telecom's comity so as to tap all our phones. Such huge shit pies are worth every penny they cost, and heaven knows I can't get enough of them.

What does that have to do with better energy technology? What doesn't it? I promised my first online task upon my return would be to update and correct my previous post now that after nearly 60 years of discussing this technology, I was finally starting to learn something, thanks in large part to the Tom Bearden website.

If you plan to read the website, you'd best get started because it's like four years of college, a couple years of graduate study and an extended internship. It would help if I were a millennium-class physicist. That I'm not doesn't mean I fail to recognize the Bearden team's biggest, best, most fantastic, amazing and frightening story ever told, by any writer of any time or genre—and that's so whether you believe all, some or none of it.

I don't find anything in movies, news or elsewhere in all literature that is its equal—and during my sabbatical I came to realize how much it explains and that I know now certainly that MEG and scalar wave technologies are real. I haven't felt I could make that statement, but now I'm certain. I haven't been in a hurry to talk about these things, not because some people think it's crazy talk but in that I've been too busy in a state of wide-eyed amazement.

My thinking and reading these sites was new, and I inadvertently made a false impression when I said:

That confusion isn't helped by the handful of hucksters, con artists and devotees with their books and websites spewing megabytes of gibberish and off-topic speculation. Here's an example. The author tells lots of compelling stories, and has a good point when he says to forget any idea you have of saving the world by producing these devices, because if you can get it to work, it will be taken away from you. Some people offer instructions or schematics, and none of them are cheap. Keep your money. Tom Bearden wants investment capital. If his prototype works, he doesn't need money: anyone who knows what they're doing could build the device with a few dollars' worth of components.

Bearden and team aren't joking with us, and I didn't mean to lump them with the sideshow crowd. I've felt very badly about writing those sentences, and putting that paragraph together like that, especially when I hadn't studied a tenth of the technical papers or their patent, or seen any MEG schematic, and not understanding the operation of the MEG at all.

But that's what people do when they don't understand the subject. I think of it as a personal moral failing, sloth and perhaps God-given piss ignorance. I've thought about that a lot. Since then, I made it a point to more thoroughly read the website. It's long. Entries in the table of contents take you to other tables of contents. I want to give you a little walk-through after I deal with some leftover, residual nastiness.

I was yanked offline and had drive-bys from new, shiny black Suburbans with tinted glass. I'm not the paranoid type, but after all, I do write to rich investors, automotive chief executives and politicians and all kinds of people. The Suburban drivers look me over and don't come back—so far. I don't think anything of it, except that it's too bad. I get zonked for talking about the technology in online forums. The Smirking Chimp was hacked immediately after I made the first post. The comments were so bad, I deleted the content so they wouldn't hit the search engines. I apologized by e-mail to the site owner, telling him I had no idea it would cause all that commotion (and hoping he understood).

I'm sorry for those who never heard of the technology, the last couple generations who got detention instead of an education, and for people who commented 'all overunity devices are scams.' Basically, the MEG is conventional as it is fundamental, something easily understood, with a handful of facts, by the average grade school student. I didn't know that. And how much time do I want to spend arguing? Oh, around none. Fine. Tesla lied all those times he referred to it because it doesn't work. Is that why I can't read Tesla's file? Seems like if it doesn't work, I could read the file; indeed, people would be standing on every street corner trying to pay me to take copies of it off their hands.

Instead, it's classified. That's because it doesn't work, and busy decision makers don't want to clutter up the world with more stuff that doesn't work. Or... runs like six white horses, delivers as stated and makes amazing things possible. That the second possibility is correct is the most sorrowful and ongoing, tragic catastrophe I know or every knew, and by a great measure. Sure, Colonel Bearden wants you to buy his books and discs. You can even get the website on CD, which is great. But the primary thing he sells is something that costs no money, honesty—simple intellectual honesty.

The truth will change the way you see everything, for the rest of your life.

And, it will make you mad. Another matter to clarify is the term "zero point energy." Although Tesla's primary device was tagged as ZPE in the Disclosure Project video, the MEG is not a zero point energy device, and has nothing to do with zero point energy.

Zero point energy has a lengthy description. It is divided into different varieties. It helps to start like this:

The simplest experimental evidence for the existence of zero-point energy in quantum field theory is the Casimir effect. This effect was proposed in 1948 by Dutch physicist Hendrik B. G. Casimir, who considered the quantized electromagnetic field between a pair of grounded, neutral metal plates. A small force can be measured between the plates, which is directly ascribable to a change of the zero-point energy of the electromagnetic field between the plates.

Ordinary quantum mechanics, quantum field theory and quantum perturbation theory have unique approaches to ZPE. The suggestion is that zero point energy may be, or nearly be, the cosmological constant, or theory of everything. Within these categories are inevitable subgroups. Then, there is the human element—and people endlessly demonstrate their boundless interpretations of precisely what it means in infinite assertions. Tom Bearden comments about a 1996 patent for zero point energy.

I intended to write about Tesla's MEG technology, not zero point energy. ZPE may be useless bunk, except as it applies to nanotechnology. Bearden dismissively calls ZPE energy extraction "eyewash" and "jitter:"

A major difference between taking the energy directly from the virtual state vacuum flux, as opposed to the ZPE zitterbewegung process that produces a feeble amount of "jitter" of an observable particle such as an electron, is that one is trying to capture some of the "observable jitter." Extracting jitter energy in the observable state is a secondary process applied to a more fundamental primary process extracting the "jitter" energy from the virtual vacuum.

So the "bad guys" will allow funding and slow progress along the "jitter energy" or ZPE route, but will strongly react to any DIRECT extraction from the virtual state with strong suppression and countermeasures.

More from Bearden on ZPE. It's been my experience that saying self-charging circuits can be built starts a heck of a good fight. That's because rotten, evil people don't want you to know you should have always had free electricity, and as much as you wanted. They only see energy as something to sell and tax, and never consider it's a good thing for them, too, even at the cost of their livelihood.

So it became and remains an invisible catastrophe, unknown to almost everyone. At a time when some scientists say we have just five years, 60 months, to put into place the clean energy technologies we will use henceforth or the global climate will rapidly decline to a state unfit for life, you'd think this would be the easiest pitch in the world, not the toughest. I think we have passed the point of no return. Jim Inhofe thinks it's the biggest sham ever scammed. That event horizon exists, and wherever it is, you know good and well nothing will change, and we will cross it, and die.

Bearden says we have two years, just two years, to put those great, clean energy technologies into place, or western civilization will collapse, and 70% to 90% of the world's people will die or be killed. That link is one of many pieces of correspondence, and it makes many very fascinating statements. He says DoE is suppressing asymmetric magnet technology, which can make permanent, self-powered motors. He says he has reproduced the engineering of physical reality; that is, bringing matter into being from nonbeing. Tesla said that is possible, as is creating life itself, in all its infinite variety.

Indeed, here he describes an unplanned experiment that materialized living things. It was witnessed by many people who don't want to talk about it, and made waves in spacetime that caused local clocks to malfunction for four days.

He talks about the removal of negative energy from physics literature in the early twentieth century, and all the technology we lost because what some scientists observed frightened them so much. Bearden states there is no physical limit to our ability to engineer reality. That ability is required if we expect to inhabit other planets, because we can't take everything we need.

He describes a process by which the Soviets slip the molecular bonds of titanium, causing it to liquefy, and pour it into molds to make hulls for ships. He tells of a newly discovered jellyfish that can reverse its aging process, return to youth and which is immortal—as in can't die unless it is killed.

How is it these things exceed our view and grasp? There is so much to see here, and Bearden never shows all his cards, preferring to live rather than be snuffed for saying too much. I don't doubt it. Here he says the intelligence community both listens to him and wants to kill him from time to time.

Each link contains lots of interesting information. The last one contains a gem. Throughout the site, Bearden says a small country protects the United States from attack with its scalar interferometer. In that article and nowhere else (that I've found), he identifies that country as Israel. You may remember Cheney wanted to bomb Iran back to stone not long ago for fear they would build an atomic device and nuke Israel. If Israel protects the United States with the scalar electromagnetic interferometer, it can certainly protect itself, and attacking Israel would be the ultimate act of suicide. And Cheney, a man who's made a career portraying one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, is a guy who would have known that. This small factoid changes every aspect of the issues of what to think and do about Iran's nuclear project.

That, combined with a lot of reading, made me strongly suspect that all or almost all of what he presents represents more than theoretical or experimental technologies, but real technologies in use every day, many with decades of development. He is inexact on that point in much of the literature, and certainly wouldn't come right out and say it over and over in many places. When he suggests it's possible to make portable scalar devices to treat soldiers' injuries, you can bet there are some of those floating around in the world.

Actually, I get the idea that if Bearden says the device is possible, it is because he has seen it in operation—and my cross-referencing related to reading his website supports that. I read the complete website many times, and followed the annotations as much as possible.

I have nothing but the greatest praise for Bearden and his team.

He speaks of the urgency of revising our truncated electrical engineering model:

14.1 All potentials are special aspects of the master potential of the seething virtual state vacuum. This includes all EM potentials and thus includes each EM field as a particular type of change or dynamics in a parent EM potential.
14.2 All EM potentials and fields in empty space are force-free. Further, the transverse force-field EM wave presently assumed in space actually exists only in charged matter, a priori. In space, the EM wave occurs as sets of more fundamental force-free longitudinal EM waves, as shown by Whittaker { , }.
14.3 Vacuum engineering – i.e., patterning, changing, and using particular aspects of the vacuum potential to then interact with matter and produce desired effects – is possible electromagnetically by a variety of ways and mechanisms.
14.4 Such vacuum engineering is effective and usable only in those asymmetric Maxwellian systems that were arbitrarily discarded by Lorentz prior to 1900, and still arbitrarily discarded today in the standard CEM/EE model.
14.5 Asymmetric Maxwellian systems, such as those properly using asymmetric effects such as the Aharonov-Bohm effect and its derivatives, can be utilized to extract free and usable EM energy directly from the vacuum via the local (decentralized) system. Indeed, all present EM systems already extract their EM energy directly and freely from the vacuum interaction of the source charges and dipoles.
14.6 Present electrical power engineering using only symmetrical systems continually destroys the source dipolarity and the free flow of usable EM energy from the vacuum. Hence the inane combustion of fuel, nuclear fuel rods, or wind input, water current input, and solar energy input in order to continue to remake the source dipolarity that the symmetric system continually destroys.
14.7 There is an urgent need for the scientific community to quickly correct and extend the CEM/EE model used in electrical engineering, and apply and teach a more comprehensive “supermodel” in all universities. A new technology of free “energy from the vacuum” EM systems is in the offing.
14.8 Unless there is rather immediate and strong action to dramatically correct and update the sad old EE model, and to use the new model in developing asymmetric COP>1.0 power systems and self-powering systems, the probability of a catastrophic economic collapse of the United States and the Western world is in the offing.
14.9 Only by using vacuum engineering for electrical power systems that dramatically decrease our dependence on oil, coal, gas, and nuclear power can our economic collapse – and the possible collapse of Western civilization – be avoided.

Elsewhere Bearden points out 34 deliberate deletions that cripple the electrical engineering model in customary use. Here he discusses convincing governments to reconsider.

From Tom Bearden's "Motionless Electromagnetic Generator.pdf:"

Importance of the Process and Its Sub-Processes

A process has been provided whereby useful electromagnetic energy may be extracted from the dipole of a permanent magnet, via the giant negentropy process {26, 43} associated with the magnetic dipole. In that process, an outflow of EM energy is continuously furnished by the magnet dipole in all directions in 3-space, and the energy to the dipole is freely furnished from the time-domain of the active vacuum {1, 26, 43}. Whittaker {1} unwittingly showed this giant negentropy mechanism in 1903, but failed to recognize its implications. Recent recognition of the mechanism and its implications for electrical power systems was accomplished by one of the inventors, Bearden {26} and then more deeply examined by Evans and Bearden {43}. By using the principle that essentially unlimited energy can be withdrawn from (collected from) a potential, and the withdrawn energy will be replaced by the potential's negative resistor action using the giant negentropy mechanism {1, 26, 43}, a practical approach to free energy sources for self-powering and COP>1.0 electrical power systems anywhere in the universe is provided.

By using the principle that iterative transformation of its form energy in a replenishing potential environment can be repeatedly reused to do work, so long as the form of the energy resulting at the completion of each work phase is retained and reprocessed, one joule of energy can be utilized to do many joules of work, as precisely permitted by the conservation of energy law with regauging. This is a major change to the work-energy theorem of electrodynamics, which implicitly has assumed only a single change of form of the energy, followed by loss (escape from the system) of all the energy in the new form. In short, the present work-energy theorem is only a special case valid under those assumed special conditions. The invented process takes advantage of the extended work-energy theorem where one joule of energy—accompanied by retention of the new form of energy resulting from work—can do multiple joules of work in a replenishing potential environment.

By using the principle that one joule in "iterative form changing mode with retention" can do many joules of work upon a component of a system—to wit, upon the Drude electron gas in an electrical circuit, where the potential energy is increased by the increased kinetic energy of the electrons having the work done upon them—the extended work-energy theorem can be utilized to overpotentialize the receiving Drude electron gas, thereby regauging the system to add excess energy by gauge freedom and outputting more electrical energy to the load than is input to the system by the operator.

By then dissipating in loads this excess energy collected in the Drude electron gas in the output circuit, the invented process provides greater energy to be dissipated in the load than is input by the operator. The combination of processes thus allows an electromagnetic system freely functioning as an open system not in equilibrium with its active vacuum (due to the giant negentropy mechanism {26, 43}), hence permitted to exhibit COP>1.0. In this way, more work output can be accomplished by the system process than the work that the operator must perform upon the system to operate it.

By using the principle of governed, clamped positive feedback of a portion of the increased output back to the input, the system can be close-looped and can power itself and its load, with all the energy being furnished by self-regauging from the active vacuum as an external energy source, furnishing excess energy to the magnetic dipole's magnetostatic potential and associated magnetic vector potential, thereby replenishing energy withdrawn from said magnetic vector potential by the subprocesses in the overall system process.

One system operating in closed-loop mode can also have one fraction of its output devoted to "jump-starting" another such system in tandem, then switching the second system into self-powering closed-loop mode, then "jump-starting" another such system, which is then switched to self-powering, and so on. In that way, multiple systems can be "piggy-backed" so that an exceptionally large power system consisting of a group of such "piggy-backing" systems can be produced. In case of system failure, all can be started again in the same series, by furnishing only the initial small input required to jump-start the first system of the group. In this way, very large power systems such as necessary to power automobiles, trucks, ships, trains, etc. can be produced, and yet the back-up jump starting source—such as a storage battery—can be very small, e.g., a simple flashlight battery.

Implications for the Crisis in Oil Supplies Versus Energy Demands

The implications are that a total revolution in transportation, electrical power systems, backup power systems, etc. is at hand. In the process, the electrical power is obtained freely and cleanly from the vacuum, from permanent magnet dipoles continuously replenished from the active vacuum via the giant negentropy process.

A more significant fraction of the electrical power system can thus be decentralized, and degradation in case of system failure will be graceful and local. Yet full use can still be made of the existing power grids and power systems. As an example, arrays of self-powering electrical heater systems can be developed and used to heat the boilers in many standard power systems, thereby stopping the burning of hydrocarbons in those plants, and drastically reducing the pollution of the biosphere and the lungs of living creatures including humans. This would allow a graceful phase-in of new, clean, self-powering electrical power systems, reduction of hydrocarbon combustion for commercial electricity production, ready increase in electrical power to meet increasing world demands even in poor nations and developing countries, while capitalizing and using much of the present very large "sunk costs" investments in present large power systems. The core material fabrication is labor-intensive, so it is made in developing nations where such jobs are sorely needed and greatly benefit both the people and the nation.

The dramatically increased use of and demand for these materials would thus stimulate substantial economic growth in those nations by providing many more jobs.

The conversion of power systems and replacement in a fraction of them, can proceed at a very rapid pace, since production and scale-up of systems utilizing this system process can be very rapid because, except for the cores, all fabrication, parts, techniques, tooling, etc. are simple and standard and very economical.

Particularly at this time of oil crisis and particularly a shortage of refining facilities, a very rapid and permanent solution to the oil crisis and the rapidly increasing demand for electricity—and also much of the problem of the present pollution of the biosphere by combustion byproducts, and of the present global warming enhancement by the emitted CO2 from the hydrocarbon combustion—can be solved cheaply, economically, and quickly.

The steady reduction and eventual near-elimination of hydrocarbon combustion in commercial power systems and transport, and dramatic reduction in nuclear fuel rod consumption, etc. will result in cleaner, cheaper, more easily maintained power systems and a reduction in the acreage required for these power systems.

The gradual decentralization and localization of a substantial fraction of the presently centralized power grid will eliminate a significant fraction of power transmission costs, thereby lowering the price of electrical energy to the consumers.

The scale-up weight-per-kilowatt of systems using this system process will be sufficiently low to enable rapid development of electrically powered transport media such as automobiles etc. These will have weight about the same as now, carry a small battery as a backup "jump-starter", and will have very agile performance suitable for modern driving in heavy traffic. With fuel costs zeroed, the cost to the citizens of owning and operating vehicles will be reduced. Costs to the trucking industry, e.g., will be dramatically reduced, since fuel is a major cost item. In turn, since most goods are moved via the trucking industry, the lower transport costs will mean more economical sales prices of the goods. These are very powerful and beneficial economic advantages of the new process.

You can well understand the importance of modernizing electrical engineering. Bearden states it another way with some very interesting additions:

The problem is the present classical electrodynamics (CEM) taught in university, such as in electrical engineering. That CEM model is horribly flawed, and very seriously out of date (more than a hundred years old). For example:

1. It still assumes a material ether, falsified since the 1890s. Thus is assumes force fields in space, which is totally untrue, as pointed out by many physicists such as Wheeler, Nobelist Feynman, and others. Rigorously force exists in and on mass, because mass is a component of force. In that sense, the basic mechanics taught in physics -- with a separate mass-free force acting on a mass -- is totally false in that premise.

2. It assumes a flat spacetime (falsified since 1916; given a single mass anywhere in the universe, the spacetime is curved).

3. It assumes an inert vacuum (falsified for decades by particle physics, both theoretically and experimentally).

4. It assumes that every EM field, EM potential, and joule of EM energy in the universe is and has been freely created out of nothing at all, by the associated source charge(s). This is in total violation of the conservation of energy law. So we either have to solve the source charge problem --- where does the charge get the energy it continuously pours out in all directions, establishing its fields and potentials spreading outward at light speed -- when there is no OBSERVABLE energy input to it? That epochal problem has just been purged out of the electrical engineering textbooks, so the students will not ask embarrassing questions. You see, either the charge continuously receives nonobservable VIRTUAL PHOTON energy from the vacuum, and coherently integrates it into observable size, then re-emits the energy as real, observable photons radiated in all directions -- or else the charge creates all that energy out of nothing and totally falsifies conservation of energy. We have published the solution, taken from particle physics in the discovery of broken symmetry in 1957. But energy from the vacuum is terribly resisted, because -- my goodness! If the young grad students and post docs get onto that, then that power meter will come off your house and the gas pump meter will come off your car. In that case, some of the greatest cartels in the world will have to go back to knitting. With something like a trillion dollars per year ripped off humanity in the energy field alone, obviously those "in control" of most of the financial resources of the present "energy cartels" are not going to let that happen if possible. Hence what some physicists (such as Sen) call "the most difficult problem in electrodynamics" is not even mentioned in the electrical engineering texts, nor are the tremendous foundations errors in that electrical engineering model pointed out to the students.

5. The fact that all the "normal" EM fields and potentials decompose into -- and thus are comprised of, and identically are -- harmonic sets of bidirectional longitudinal EM waves with differential functions impressed -- is not mentioned (Whittaker showed that in 1903 and 1904; his 1904 paper initiated "superpotential theory" but the 1903 paper was almost entirely and resoundingly ignored). In short, there is a far more fundamental longitudinal EM wave electrodynamics, which MAKES all the rest anyway, but it is not allowed to be investigated in the doctoral theses and post doctoral studies. It has, however, been highly weaponized by some 10 nations of the world, and the weather over our very heads has been engineered that way since July 4, 1976 -- our "bicentennial gift" from the KGB.

6. In CEM, most everything deals with 3-space (i.e., after observation and d/dt operators have been applied to the real phenomena in 4-space). Time thus is just assumed to be a "river" on which we helplessly float. That's false. Rate of passage of time -- and even its reversal -- can be engineered, as well as 3-space stuff. In quantum field theory, e.g., there is a time-polarized (scalar) photon, where the energy (compressed into what we call "time") is oscillating over on the time axis. There is also a longitudinal photon whose energy in 3-space oscillates along the direction of travel, like an accordion being squeezed to and fro (Tesla's compression and rarefaction wave). Neither the scalar photon nor the longitudinal photon are individually observable, but the pairing of the two is observable as the instantaneous scalar potential. So common old "voltage" is quite a bit more strange and exotic than the electrical engineers even suspect in their wildest nightmares. Now one can understand Becker's "voltage" across the intractable bone fractures having the capability (looked at with an eye for optical phase conjugation) of "pumping" the entering red cells in the time domain as well as in 3-space. In short, he showed that the red cell IS CHANGED BACK TO AN EARLY FORM (dedifferentiation in the lexicon of the biologist, time reversal in the language of physics). So it shucks the hemoglobin and grows a cellular nucleus. Then that cell, continuing to be pumped, is redifferentiated, and turns into the kind of cell that makes cartilage. Then THAT cell (or blast) further differentiates into the type of cell that makes bone. It is deposited, and with enough such "forced creation of bone cells and their deposit", the otherwise intractable bone fracture heals. Electrical engineering and CEM cannot model that, but higher group symmetry electrodynamics can do it.

Thus, because of the terrible flaws in electrical engineering and the ubiquitous use of that silly model in medicine, we have the ridiculous situation where the healing system of the body -- which is the cellular regeneration system, and NOT the immune system -- is not even properly studied. It's an electrical system, (zounds! the body already uses "crazy electromagnetics" to do all its cellular healing!), but the medical folk will not use the type of electrodynamics necessary to model it and fit the model to experiments. Therefore we continue to support the big drug companies, etc. and almost totally ignore the real healing process and how it works -- and how to engineer it as Becker showed and Priore showed, etc.

Hope that sheds some light on why the key to so many new kinds of science and healing is solidly blocked by the nearly slavish attachment of our universities to the standard and terribly flawed electrical engineering. The place to put the blame is on the leaders: The National Academy of Sciences, National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, etc.

Here is a document replicating Bearden's MEG, proving that it works.

In some of his most recent correspondence, Bearden speaks of the use of microthin, nanocrystalline tourmaline in "solar cells" that require no light. Tourmaline processed this way emits such a copious shower of far-infrared light photons, a cell that could power your car or house would be the size of your thumb.
