    can of wormhole

    Still struggling with the .pdf. Is it a multi-worlds thing like after the atom goes through the wormhole each copy of the emission event is in a different universe?

    can of wormhole

    Thanks MigL I'm reading the paper tonight. looks like it will give me some help with my questions. I read (in WIkipedia i think) that accelerating one end of a stable wormhole near c and then returning to the other end resulted in a wormhole version of the twin paradox. If you go through one way you age, if you go the other way you're younger. That is the type of wormhole I was using in my atom emits a photon example I don't think it's a CTC.

    Maybe some arrangement where an excited atom emits a photon then goes through a wormhole back in time to emit the same photon over and over, or dropping an electric charge through a field and wormholing it back out to be dropped again. Like a wormhole current source.

    Does that mean a properly configured wormhole can be a free energy device?

    Could it be something like a black hole's event horizon making the distinction?

    You never played Portal? In Portal 2 the machine gun turrets all serenade you at the end, it's great. I know there's no way to test these ideas without a wormhole to experiment with, that's why i put this in speculations. I don't think the lack of an observable worm hole should stop us from trying to build a model of how they could exist and be consistent with the rest of physics. It was the same with Black holes at one time, they were consistent with GR theory so people made models of how black holes could be consistent with physical laws.

    Is it possible to violate conservation laws with wormholes (i don't think so), or would a violation mean wormholes are purely sci-fi? If you could put one end of a wormhole at the bottom of a lake and the other end on top of a nearby mountain you could generate electricity using the water flowing back down the mountain to power the wormhole generator. In the inertial drive setup, I'm assuming an object traversing a wormhole doesn't give up all it's momentum to the wormhole. If objects did lose all their momentum to the wormhole, that might restore conservation of momentum but then how can
  8. If you could make a "u" shape wormhole and mount it so both ends of the wormhole are side by side at one end of a tube, and then accelerate a mass from the other end of the tube through the wormhole so it comes right back to where it started... Does conservation of momentum still hold? When the projectile is launched, the tube gets accelerated opposite the projectile, and when the projectile lands the tube gets accelerated in the same direction as the projectile so all the forces act together to accelerate the tube without reaction mass. Or...
  9. I agree. I just felt that if someone wants to rave against authority, leaving religious authority out was a glaring omission.
  10. Oh wow man, just flashed back to my first 8-track (cast recording of hair) A home for fleas, a hive for bees, a nest for birds there aint no words... Now I feel bald.
  11. It's the age of the extravagant conservative, the age of informed ignorance, filled with wasteful exploiters and passive despoilers. An age of boring amazement. Clearly it is the age of the Oxymoron.
  12. due to several months of insomnia, I saw this the other night. Seems to fit right in here. ‘When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.’ ‘The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’ ‘The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master—that’s all.’ source:
