Invisibility materials are a step closer, as scientists and engineers at Harvard University have now successfully constructed metamaterials with a negative refractive index as strong as -700. This is an article to contemplate very carefully:

Towards miniaturization of metamaterials: Reluctant electrons enable 'extraordinarily strong' negative refraction Read more at:

What interests me here is that the technique being argued in this short article is a familiar one, in fact, it is so familiar and for that matter, so old, that it is (to use the expression) "a bit creepy," for it harkens back to some of the rationalizations behind the famous Philadelphia Experiment that I encountered when researching my book Secrets of the Unified Field: the Philadelphia Experiment, the Nazi Bell, and the Discarded Theory. There, the trick had been concerned not with refractive indices but with impedances, and the scientist who explained what to do - and what the Nazis were attempting to do with their radar invisibility experiments - was Einstein associate Arnold Sommerfeld. Here is they way I presented his argument in Secrets of the Unified Field:

"Sommerfeld begins his discussion by noting the case when two media - the air and the target - are of unequal magnetic permeabilities...

Sommerfeld then states quite directly:

"During the war the problem arose to find, as a counter measure to Allied radar, a largely non-reflecting ("black") surface layer of small thickness. This layer was to be particularly non-reflecting for perpendicular or almost perpendicular incidence of the radar wave. In this case the angle of incidence and the angle of transmission are both almost equal zero. The problem is solved by making the ratio of the two wave impedances almost equal to unity...." (Secrets of the Unified Field, pp. 171-172).

Thus, for the Nazis, the key was not the index of refraction but the ratio of wave impedances.(p. 172).Sommerfeld puts it this way:

"In order to 'camouflage' an object against radar waves, one must cover it with a layer for which this ratio of wave resistances has the value of 1 in the region of centimeter waves..."(op. cit., p. 174)

Well and good, and it was a rather simple and brilliant expedient, one within the capabilities of the day. But now the new Harvard study opens up the possibilities - far distant to be sure - that materials engineering itself will provide new capabilities for "invisibility" materials, not dependent upon such a "clumsy" approach, and one moreover with implications for the entire spectrum of electromagnetic radiation, in other words, with implications for optical, as well as radar, stealth properties, for with such high negative refractive indices, incident electromagnetic radiation on such materials would be "bent" in such a manner that reflection would not would have a kind of bent reflection (of course, this does not completely render radar stealth, since radar is not merely a "bounce" but also a secondary transmitter and resonance effect).

What does all this complicated jargon boil down to? Simply this: materials engineering and experimental science took yet another step closer to Marduk's "invisibility" suit, recorded in the Babylonian war epic, the Enuma Elish...

See you on the flip side.

    this title sounds like a dadaist DALI painting title. deliciosio! fantasmagorickia!

    maybe this is what the Russians are using:

    The Washington Free Beacon website claimed that a Russian Akula-class nuclear sub, loaded with cruise missiles, has been patrolling near the US strategic nuclear submarine base at Kings Bay, Georgia, the home base for eight of America’s nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines.

    Armed with various types of torpedoes, including those with nuclear warheads, anti-submarine-warfare missiles and long-range (3,000 kilometers) nuclear cruise missiles, Akula-class subs are capable of destroying both nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers.

    The report alleges that powerful US hydro-acoustic sensors deployed in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, supported by powerful military satellites, were unable to detect a sub Russia has deployed for the past two decades.

    • Hal Hichler on August 15, 2012 at 4:15 pm

      sorry, this is slightly off topic but the Russian sub story made me think of this latest news:

      “… the Apex of US projection of Power, the F-22 Raptor, the costliest plane ever, has been plagued with all those mysterious problems.

      But with all the problems aside, the F-22 outbeats, out flies and out fights all other jet-fighters in existence … or does it ?

      “According to a new report published in the latest edition of Combat Aircraft Monthly, though, the state-of-the-art jet has failed missions that put it up against the Eurofighter Typhoon, a simpler aircraft utilized by German pilots that costs a comparable measly $200 million apiece.

      “We expected to perform less with the Eurofighter but we didn’t,” German air officer Marc Grune tells the magazine. “We were evenly matched. They didn’t expect us to turn so aggressively.”

      Although the advantageous of the Raptor jet aren’t exactly being brought into argument, the latest report suggests that in terms of close-range, one-on-one combat, the F-22 has failed to outmaneuver its German competitor. And while the long-range capabilities of the Raptor continue to be endorsed, being unable to claim victory in an up-close-and-personal fight with a plane from another fleet is an embarrassment the US Air Force doesn’t need right now.”

      I originally intended this commentary as a response to Hal’s first posting but this website’s software continually diverted me here after every try-

      “The report alleges that powerful US hydro-acoustic sensors deployed in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, supported by powerful military satellites, were unable to detect a sub Russia has deployed for the past two decades”-

      if Douglas Dietrich’s expoundings are to be taken seriously he has countless times stated that the incompetence of the US Department of Defense is staggering

        I hate what always seems to be this nic-of-time stuff !

        It’s alright for Chicken Little,
        but some of us get tired of looking up to make sure
        that he isn’t right this time !

          Hi HAL,

          “to make sure that he isn’t right this time”-

          who is “he”?

    “But now the new Harvard study opens up the possibilities – far distant to be sure”- right- this has to be another cover story-

    are we to naivly assume that whoever commands the most advanced technologies on this planet are still in an experimental stage?-

    if so Dr. Judy Wood’s research was nothing more than a commentary on an ‘attempted’ technology

    This “appears” to be a road well travelled for “intelligent” species bent on?

    This is all quite technical for me, but I think they showed something like this on an episode of Ancient Aliens (yes its me, the TV watcher ;). I’m sorry I don’t recall which episode, perhaps the one on ancient weapons, but anyway, they showed a short bit on the Japanese working on invisibility and indeed showed a guy who disappeared from view, which was actually fascinating to see.

    Then they went on to talk about an event from the past – sorry I’m bad on the details here but it concerned a king with a name something like Googlio maybe, who was at war with his neighbor and he wasn’t doing quite so good. So this god comes along and tells Googlio that another god is helping his enemy. Googlio doesn’t believe him as he didn’t see any other god around, so the god gives Googlio this instrument and tells him to look through it and it is then that Googlio sees another god whispering into his enemy’s ear, giving him an edge in battle. The god told Googlio he could keep the instrument but he wasn’t to harm the other god. Apparently Googlio won the battle but did harm the god (which goes to show these guys aren’t invincible or immortal… and that humans don’t always obey). I was like “wait, wait, I want to know more!” but of course the show moved on to something else.

    What I find most disturbing about this tale is that, given the Annunaki were supposedly so long lived and apparently some were still around with invisibility suits in Googlio’s day, that they might still be around today, whispering in some ears ala George Bush saying God told him to invade Iraq. I think its not so much we need the suit as we need the invisibility detector instrument.

      Except for when there is personal gain, such as a
      work promotion [more MONEY!] those of the so-called
      human race are extremely quick to blame or credit others
      for achievements they don’t understand and
      usually because they have poor information to go on.

      If ‘we’ can’t do or achieve such & such, as is known,
      it must be the “Ancient Aliens,” it certainly can’t be
      the ancient ‘we’ because there is no specific records
      of ‘human’ kind that smart [shoved in our face]
      how could so many of the [we] human race lie to us about THAT?
      ‘we’ wouldn’t swallow it, anyway………………….
      [my daughter’s experts and authority aside]

      On another note:
      your non-event apocalypse is off to a good start.

      Lots of things are starting to converge and
      Mother Nature does not seem pleased.
      I’m sure She will be letting you know about
      all the insults and attacks on Her,
      such as weather disasters, earthquakes,
      secret science strictly for evil, etc.
      probably putting faux money before Her …….
      and on and on……………
      not even to mention the misuse of time knowledge !
      [Only Mother Nature knows for sure]

      Got your boots on?

        Even the
        page has taken the elevator down to the
        kindergarten floor unless you are one of
        THEM with special clearance.

        My television
        [my body! for that matter, since I am a target]
        shows up EM storms better.

        I’m very shpechial, you know,
        THEY THINK
