  1. so, I guess you don't think much of the idea that virtual particle collisions represent the mechanism that causes dark energy and/or that they indeed can be considered as the smallest possible gravity wave generators. I certainly see your point that regular gravity waves are not generally repulsive, however it does seem that any physical process, and that includes the transfer of gravity waves, must have some underlying inefficiencies, however small, as they travel through space. Since there is a movement from point A, the black hole, to point B, LIGO, it seems self evident that there is a "push" going on at the level of the inherent inefficiencies of that system.
  2. if they are "pushing against" space time over here, they are by definition, repulsive it would seem...even if the push is somewhat negated within the quadrapole network, it seems there should be some "residue" of an inherent ineffeciency of the process, leaving a small overall repulsive force
  3. If gravitational waves are considered as a repulsive force emanating from a collision of heavy objects and dark energy is similarly considered as a repulsive force, is there a link between those two phenomena as viewed from this common repulsive behavior? If dark energy is the leftovers of the annialations (collisions) of the vitrual particles of space, giving the small forces that are everywhere, inflating the cosmos in a smooth, continuous fashion, thus leaving dark energy as an aggregate of these smallest possible gravity waves, with ultra heavy objects detected by LIGO as tending toward the largest?
  4. isn't is a surmise that there is no "flip"?, What if that they are sub-plankian in duration, therefore represent the hidden variables within the fundamental structures of space time?
  5. I guess what I am asking is, can we play god and affect which state entangled particles must appear in by affecting the basic logic structure of i, by an addition of a sort of "viral" effect that doesn't destroy entanglement, as in a form of weak measurements?
  6. the "box" are the algorithms that produce it. While the numbers are stored in an i file, still they are numbers, so they may respond to manipulations from real numbers.
  7. I basically am asking if something could be added to the box, as a deliberate modification or addition to what is there, without excessive disturbance to the function of the box.
  8. I have heard that is "how it works", but that doesn't explain the internal workings of the black box attributed to the idea. I did get the gell mann video to load, and having seen it several times before, still leaves one with the impression that "it works this way because it works this way" and not a real explanation, nor much of a hint as to what is in the black box. I can see one option and that is that quantum entanglements are independent from geometric space notions of distance and act as such being composed of i based mathematical numerical structures, and as so, rely on that structured, yet illogical underpinnings to explain their behavior.
  9. This does seem rather deterministic, and I thought that was not current thinking, but the gell man video wouldn't load, so will try later on that. It does seem as if the pairs sense no distance between them, and therefore act as such.
  10. it does seem that there is a faster than light signalling with quantum entanglement issues, but that it cannot transfer any signal other than the basics used to determine a static outcome. Is this because no information can be "added on" to the basic mathematics that determines what is only allowed to happen in normal nature? Could it be possible to artificially "add on" signalling by building unique entangled structures that have a greater bandwidth?
  11. I realize I mispoke when attributing the #1 piezo as contributing to damping, only the #7 piezo contributes damping, the #1 acting as a reflector only.
  12. it has ocurred that the asymmetrical weights used by the Woodward team at each end of their stacks may have a better alternative. The weights are used, to my understanding, so as to have the piezos something to react against to give directionality to the travelling waves and selective damping. If I have normally not used such things, and have preferred to simply amplify what can be started with the sequential scan method I use, and accept that inherent limitation of having "nothing to push against". I have taken the first end piezo, normally used as a turn around and a scope sensor source, and shorted across it. This I think accomplishes what a passive weight would do, as used elsewhere. As an analogy to a common loud speaker, if you thump it, it rings and can be easily pushed in and out. If you short across the speaker terminals, the cone becomes quite stiff and naturally resists any physical movements. The piezos are like speakers in a sense, so shorting one at the front of the stack seems to offer a "variable mass reactor" acting as a stiff surface for the first active element to react against and damps out any remnant vibrations as the scan proceeds along and as they travel back and forth. The stack end piezo is now the only scope signal source. I have measured the voltage appearing across it, and have found that a 1.2K resistor cuts that voltage in half, so I figure that offers the lowest "SWR" at today's first attempt at the new idea. This is to dump that energy into the resistor so that less is reflected back, hence raising the efficiency of any possible thrust production. The stack setup now is piezo #1 shorted for variable mass reactor, piezos #2-#6 driven elements, #7 as scope sensor and dummy load.
  13. a July 24, 2022 youtube video Roger Shawyer - Em Drive: NASA's "impossible" Fuel-Less Thruster may be of interest to some.
  14. just today a youtube video "Mike McCullough - Quantized Inertia & The Horizon Drive - You Tube" is online that describes his quantized inertia idea, and then covers how it might relate to the Shawyer microwave device, the Woodward mechanism, as well as other ideas that seem to describe propellantless thrust from something as simple as capacitor plates giving a thrust from cathode to anode in a DC circuit. I remember reading something about the cap plates concept back in the 70s, I think in Omni magazine, perhaps in it's "antimatter" section.
  15. time seems a measure of change within a particular system with a default periodicy essentially the same everywhere, but modified by large gravitational forces. I see the fundamental increment of time a function of the appearance/annialation frequency of the virtual particles. If the orbits of the particles within the system are elongated by gravity, that slows time, as in black hole dynamics. Relative velocities slow time, but by a seemingly different mechanism.
  16. While the idea of coming up with an efficient phononic diode is quite beyond mine (or perhaps anyone at this point) to design one specifically adapted to the Woodward device, it does occur that a half way measure might be tried. The stacks as I have designed them are done so to maximize the transfer the shocks as efficiently as possible, and the simple expedient of simply introducing a resistance to shock transfer might have some positive effect. The underlying theory is that the shocks are "helped along" by the sequential stimulations, whereas the echos are not as the directional pulse trains are paused after each sequence finished. If the hard poly washers now used are replaced with rubber washers and the overall stack torque is somewhat lowered, the inevitable loss of transfer might favor a certain directionality, and produce an inefficient pseudo-phononic diode effect. It seems interesting now that I do recall Mr. Woodward remarking that no thrust was seen at all until a single rubber washer was introduced into his stacks. It seems possible that by replacing the 5 hard plastic washers which I use to electrically isolate the elements from one another, with viton rubber or some such material, this will preform the duty of electrical insulation and provide the inherent loss of impulse transfer to perhaps work to some advantage in my situation.
  17. a quick search of the sonogram spectrum states that frequencies in the 2-18 mhz range are normally used.
  18. an earlier article dated October 2010 in researchgate.net/publication/47535210_An_acoustic_rectifier states that rectification was observed by "coupling a superlattice with a layer of ultrasound contrast agent microbubble suspension".
  19. I found a site that describes a paper in the August 2020 issue of Science Advances that asserts the successful development of an "acoustic diode". This can be googled at "nonreciprocal surface acoustic wave propagation via magneto-rotation". They specifically describe the material as a direct analogue to the diode in standard electronics, and suggest it's usefulness in medical testing, specifically sonograms. The need to inhibit the reverse direction of the acoustic energies in the woodward thruster mechanism could make this development of primary interest, should it be adaptable to it's particular requirements. The woodward thruster uses a 44khz signal, and that is perhaps in the range used in sonogram scans.
  20. the idea comes to me from John Brandenburg, a plasma physicist who has worked with others on the Woodward thruster, based upon piezo materials being stimulated to give a propellantless thrust with only an electrical input. Youtube videos are online from SSI.org that cover various other subjects they have lectures on. They claim to have measured micronewton levels of thrust. Another propellantless thrust idea is the Shawyer engine, based upon microvaves, is online, and has reported some NASA testing by Sonny White, putting the device in a vacuum chamber, shielded in a Faraday cage, although these results seem difficult to verify. The immediate idea of both type of thrusters is for satellite station keeping duties, as the thrust, if at all possible, is very low. Both ideas are rather "cold fusionish" but interesting, nonetheless.
  21. I read of 3 phase motor cores, without the armature, as having some small weight loss when energized. Although the evidence is not much more that anecdotal, it does seem as an interesting experiment, although any weight loss is most likely due to interactions with the earth's magnetic field, from other external sources such as house wiring or simple error. I wonder if anyone on the forum has personally made a device to see if any effects could be seen, as the experiment itself could be a simple one to fabricate. Thanks for any input.
  22. a few comments on the project, since I have falsified any previous scale readings or physical movements of the arm assy. as to having "real" thrust. One presumed limitation on any positive results seems due to the waveform of the stimulating signal, which is somewhat sineosoidal. That limitation was not intended, but seems inevitable with normal, transistor or tube drivers, plus the inherent inductance of the elements themselves. The signal input is a pure square wave from the 4017, but with the circuity that I have used, the intantaneous travel, or wave energy instilled into the elements is limited, and this peak speed limit could be a crucial factor for limiting thrust, simply due to this "rounding" effect. This seems a limiting factor in the devices used by the Woodward team, as they use a transformer drive, which presumably delivers a rather pure sinosoidal drive. Another issue is the materials used, in that a nanomaterial that has a quicker response time to stimulation is needed other than rather heavy piezos, and has a low inductance. The insulating material between elements likewise needs to be a nanomaterial that exibits a "phononic diode" effect, in that it allows physical impulse to transferred in one direction easily, and offer a high impedance in the other, thus limiting back reaction. The question of how it even could work at all is perhaps that the acceleration of the elements must be fast enough to "interfere" with the virtual particle pairs of space/time, and under such conditions, become a physical medium capable for mass to interact with. I do think I have developed some miniscule actual thrust, but only slightly above the plank limit, as an analogy to waving your hand might create gravity waves, but only just above plank limit.
  23. leonard susskind mostly as per einstein's formulae
  24. hearing of the possibility of worm holes allowing quick travelling throughout space, if 2 holes were to be entangled in the purpose of using them for such travel, wouldn't they need to be entangled near each other, then one of the them would have to be physically moved at slow speed, to provide a terminus of the other one? This seems like taking a long time to string a comm wire, then once that is completed, near instant signals be sent between them, only with worm holes the physical travels are instantaneous.
