This is a story that is quietly circulating, and many of you have brought it to my attention this week, and since the story appeared just a few days ago, it's worth bring up:

Nasa validates 'impossible' space drive

Now the benefits of such a drive are obvious, and the article states them clearly: a microwave drive could replace chemical propellants in satellites, and conceivably dramatically expand the amount of the payload dedicated to instrumentation, and also thereby increase their life, lowering costs, &c &c.Suggestively, the article states that one of the devices NASA is looking at is a device based upon  - here it comes - rotating superconductors:

"Back in the 90s, Nasa tested what was claimed to be an antigravity device based on spinning superconducting discs. That was reported to give good test results, until researchers realised that interference from the device was affecting their measuring instruments. They have probably learned a lot since then.

"The torsion balance they used to test the thrust was sensitive enough to detect a thrust of less than ten micronewtons, but the drive actually produced 30 to 50 micronewtons -- less than a thousandth of the Chinese results, but emphatically a positive result, in spite of the law of conservation of momentum:

"Test results indicate that the RF resonant cavity thruster design, which is unique as an electric propulsion device, is producing a force that is not attributable to any classical electromagnetic phenomenon and therefore is potentially demonstrating an interaction with the quantum vacuum virtual plasma."

"This last line implies that the drive may work by pushing against the ghostly cloud of particles and anti-particles that are constantly popping into being and disappearing again in empty space. But the Nasa team has avoided trying to explain its results in favour of simply reporting what it found: "This paper will not address the physics of the quantum vacuum plasma thruster, but instead will describe the test integration, test operations, and the results obtained from the test campaign."

"The drive's inventor, Guido Fetta calls it the "Cannae Drive", which he explains as a reference to the Battle of Cannae in which Hannibal decisively defeated a much stronger Roman army: you're at your best when you are in a tight corner. However, it's hard not to suspect that Star Trek's Engineer Scott -- "I cannae change the laws of physics" -- might also be an influence. (It was formerly known as the Q-Drive.)

"Fetta also presented a paper at AIAA on his drive, "Numerical and Experimental Results for a Novel Propulsion Technology Requiring no On-Board Propellant". His underlying theory is very different to that of the EmDrive, but like Shawyer he has spent years trying to persuade sceptics simply to look at it. He seems to have succeeded at last."

But here's the problem: the idea of using microwaves for propulsion has been around since the 1950s, and it is known as the microwave soliton effect. In the 1950s, however, as Dr. Paul LaViolette has indicated in his eminently worthwhile book, secrets of AntiGravity Propulsion, the effect was being talked about, back then, not so much as a satellite space-propellent-and-cost saver, but as a means of getting off the planet, and, if some of LaViolette's sources are to be believed, they were eminently successful, and fairly early on. Such enormous microwave power would, of course, ionize dirt, burn and scorch the area beneath such a device, and so on (UFO landing trace enthusiasts, take note!).

So why is NASA apparently "validating" these concepts now, and if quietly, then at least, it would seem, openly. Well consider: NASA's Dr. Harold White has been designing proof-of-concept experiments for warp drive, and DARPA(Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or as a reader here once suggested, the Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Projects Agency) has come out and announced a goal for the USA: to be warp capable in 100 years. And, of course, we've seen the push in recent years for asteroid mining, Moon mining, and so on.

What I suspect, therefore, is that we're looking at the controlled release of concepts that have been quietly - and very secretly - studied and developed for decades. That it is beginning to become more openly acknowledged is a strong suggestion that a new system - including a new financial system - is being put into place and slowly rolled out. The suppression of technologies that once prevailed, given a total electronic surveillance culture , no longer seems as necessary as it once was. I've argued repeatedly that one reason for that suppression, beginning of course with Tesla, was that the elites knew of the potential weaponization capabilities for such things, and of the difficulty of monitoring and tracking the technologies. Now, the proliferation and tracking problem seems to be eroding with the expansion of surveillance capability, and as a result, we could be seeing the slow deliberate release of concepts. Time, of course, will tell.

See you on the flip side.

    I think this requires an examination of some highly suspect issues having to do with flight mh370. So this new drive is

    “based upon – here it comes – rotating superconductors:”

    A group of 20 or so people that disappeared along with mh370 worked for a company, Freescale Semiconductor, which developed microchips for the military. A rumor went around at the time, that 5 of the people on board were allegedly the sole patent holders of some new semiconductor tech (possibly something to do with the coating of the object’s surface). The ownership of said patent was then transferred to Freescale upon their deaths. The rumor was supposedly proved false. But at the same time the majority stockholders of Freescale include none other than Jacob Rothschild and the Carlyle Group, need I say more?
    Now I don’t know if this new NASA engine uses the patented tech in question, but I’m relatively sure that superconductor tech must use semiconductors in their design given they both are made to conduct electricity. Regardless the open disclosure of this drive heralds a huge future proliferation of such a technology. Therefore, I’m speculating, the new owners of the patent in question stand to make a killing in the coming years. In this I believe we might have one of the reasons for the planes disappearance.
    Also I think we need to keep in mind this group of Freescale employees were in fact on their way to China, a country that also experimented with such microwave drives according to the above article. This fact could further support the theory that the PtB were preventing China from obtaining whatever it is these employees had ownership of, or at the very least knowledge of.
    Am I onto something here or just pulling at strings?

    On top of all that while looking up the details of the stuff above I searched GlobalResearch for Freescale Semiconductor and found an interesting article from 2004, that mentions something in passing connecting 9/11 and mh370…

    “Timothy Doke was AA Vice President of Corporate Communications at the time of the 9/11 events. He is now Vice President – Corporate Communication at Freescale Semiconductor, Inc”

    So one of the guys in charge of putting the spin on 9/11 from inside American Airlines, as of 2004 also worked for Freescale Semiconductor as the spin doctor. It really wouldn’t surprise me if he was still there today, but I’m not sure. What was Timothy Doke’s reward for lying about 9/11? Here Tim, come work for a defense contractor where we can pay you an insane amount of untraceable money and also use your pr expertise in case we decide to crash some more planes.

    Good find am I right?

    3D printing is just a slicker version of “stereolithography” that has been around since the 1980’s. The heat of a laser beam would constructively interfere with special liquid resins in 3D to produce the parts. “Printing” is a much more cost effective way to do this now although the newer printed objects look a but more granular than the earlier stereolithograph prototypes.

    “Torsion” is where it’s at. Torsion is what white powder gold energy most probably is, and the effects of torsional forces on the body and mind and the consequent endorphin rush are what one feels when ingesting these things. A torqued aether is capable of all sorts of things. It’s bending the aether to our will and design that is the next big thing.

    I’m sure you’ve seen this, but I had to comment:

    Here’s the emDrive principles of operation page:

    It’s theory paper:

    A press report containing a photograph of the reflective cavity:

    According to Shawyer, a magnetron emits microwaves into a resonance waveguide which is then fed into a reflective cavity. If you look at the paper, it specifies that the cavity is trapezoidal in shape (but the image looks conical), and that its length is 1/2 the wavelength of the magnetron output.

    It then states that due to group velocity [mumbo jumbo] of photons in an asymmetricly shaped reflectors in the reflective cavity, one side is pushed into a second frame of reference – per special relativity – whereupon thrust is observed.

    I’m no physicist, just an interested layperson. However – assuming the result holds up – it appears to this untrained eye that since reflection in a closed system should have no effect at all, but that we’re dealing with resonance effects in an asymmetric reflective shape, and that group velocity can exceed c in some cases, that perhaps such a system is responding to FTL scattering slightly pushing the cavity out of phase with a primary reference frame.

    But if that were the case, wouldn’t you expect to see relativistic effects at very high energies? For example, from a third reference frame looking at the object externally, shouldn’t the reflective cavity’s shape warp noticeably? In the same vein, shouldn’t there be noticeable time dilation effects nearby? And, if so, couldn’t those be measured?

    Another interesting question, suppose you were to change the cavity size so that instead of microwaves you used the ELF band. A cavity at 1/2 kilometer instead of 1/2 x centimeters wavelength. Emit a 1km wavelength down a resonance tube and into a properly constructed reflective cavity. If +c group velocity of photons were pushing one side out of the reflective cavity of alignment with the object’s primary reference frame, does that imply a means to measure this effect from a third reference frame – say using an interferometer – for signaling?

    You can’t use group velocity as a carrier. But in this case, you’re not actually encoding data on the wave of light. You’re measuring relativistic effects near the reflective cavity. Could those relativistic effects then be used as a carrier for effective FTL communication? Even if group velocity wasn’t much FTL, it would still be an interesting proof of concept.

    Assuming Eagleworks, emDrive, and those Chinese guys aren’t full of as much uninformed shit as I’m spewing. These are just meanderings. I’m probably more ‘not even wrong’ than wrong. Pathetically so. I’ll now go skulk away and pretend I didn’t write this. lol

    either other space programs have it now too.. or the roosters are validating it.. guess we’re going to see more of this being released, and they’re upping the ante on space activities

  6. DownunderET on August 3, 2014 at 2:42 pm

    NASA again huh, well once again their public relations department is working overtime. It’s always a hint here and a hint there, I mean when are they going to get serious?
    Oh, I forgot, it’s a secret right, and none of us are allowed to know the truth. When are the games going to stop?, the mining asteroids guys must be chomping-at-the-bit, and the secret space program guys a mute, maybe somebody with serious cash will step up and get this new technology out in the open, but alas, the elites wont release their grip.
    It would appear that our generic cousins may have a hand in this as well, who knows, maybe Marduk has put a “stop” on the release of anything “exotic” and that’s the way it will remain.

    I read this story on my Facebook notices in my inbox last night. The more important story is the earlier Wired November 6,2013 China EM Drive experiments it the story mentions the China, Russia maybe India and who knows Brazil, South Africa and god knows who else is playing around with this technology. This story was on websites Blaster to this one on Wired for at least two to three days if not weeks.

    • marcos toledo on August 4, 2014 at 5:51 pm

      By the way there was a story on io9 website throwing cold water on this story. Like the Hadron Collider story about certain particles going faster than light. They certainly move fast when they mistakenly let the cat out of the bag.

  8. Robert Barricklow on August 3, 2014 at 9:57 am

    Frankly it disgusts me the way “they” hold back the technologies. I don’t for a minute think it is for ANY good reasons. I’m more in line with the Rousseau school of thought herein/that civil society is hardly more than a conspiracy by the rich to guarantee plunder.

    • jedi on August 3, 2014 at 10:49 am

      off with there heads….

  9. jedi on August 3, 2014 at 9:44 am

    in the beginning was the word…

    a word is sound,

    and the world was without shape or form, and God said let there be light…..

    a wave.

    what would we of ever done without nasa to splain these things.

  10. Aridzonan_13 on August 3, 2014 at 8:31 am

    The resources they’ve spent on the front company called NASA, Never a Straight Answer, boggles the mind. This facade of real advancement is to keep the masses believing.. Blue pill-ville wouldn’t be the same w/o NASA..

    “elites knew of the potential weaponization capabilities for such things, and of the difficulty of monitoring and tracking the technologies. Now, the proliferation and tracking problem seems to be eroding with the expansion of surveillance”

    True things are more trackable than when Keely was developing his systems, however in the Fall of 2001 the use of related technology as a weapon sure was demonstrated for all to see. Disturb the substrate upon which electron charge aligns and powderize concrete and steel.

    I just pick Keely because he’s before Tesla, didn’t really use anything like electricity, or radio. And I’m sure there are people before him who reproduced odd results.

    Also these “elites” seem to have a real limited–-non-elite–vision of reality, in other words, fine limit the weapons possibility, which hasn’t happened, but why on earth are we still burning oil, coal, forests etc? And why on earth are we using chemicals (in the conventional understanding of chemistry) as medicine in anything but emergency situations?

    I guess it could be that this actual science would allow humanity to live longer, not thru genes, and make pretty much any material thing–“precious” gold included.

    Can’t help but think that the slight release of this tech (antigravity microwave devices pushing against the ether) will be used as an excuse for more war, not less, because in the view this microwave device we (humanity) still have to get the energy from some external source, and that limited view causes some problems.

    Put differently: All geometries aren’t straight and flat, and don’t necessarily exist in the land of real solutions. But that’s all these microwave devices access. And computer networks look to be being used to construct a limited reality.

  12. MQ on August 3, 2014 at 8:20 am

    Yes, lots of data drips. I saw a preview for “Interstellar” where the msg was that humanity had to go to the stars as they were losing the ability to produce food on earth.
    In other strangeness, note the 6.3 earthquake in China, at an astonishingly shallow (if yahoo news is to believed) 1 mile. Even 6 miles would be considered rather shallow.
    Dr. Farrell in your copious spare time (LOL) check out this from Jim Willie: He summarizes a number of existing issues well (gold being the least of our problems).
    I also found very good at dissecting spying + politics– I wouldn’t have felt the same about my kids reading Roald Dahl!

    • Lost on August 3, 2014 at 8:51 am

      There are things a lot more valuable than gold, and gold can be made in quantity.

      So most websites going on about gold this and gold that are part of distraction, sometimes conscious.

      As for industries moving from the US to wherever, well that’s about unregulated banking being rewarded for those policies. Anyhow: there are indeed other things to make and services to trade with the world, but if you impoverish 90 percent of the world then there’s no one to trade with.

    • marcos toledo on August 3, 2014 at 2:15 pm

      Thanks for the link MQ but when hasn’t the USA not been a vassal of some Eurasia power since it’s founding. It’s always lying about it’s past therefore it’s perpetual slavery to it’s masters. Just wondering what the form of it’s liquidation will be since it has out lived it’s usefulness finally.

  13. Sophia on August 3, 2014 at 7:29 am

    I notice they slipped the word “torsion” in there. If we start noticing the word used more often in association with this phenomenon, it would suggest a gradual revelation that we’re dealing with torsion physics a la Nikolai Koztrev.

    Well, I must say that I am glad that true physics is being suppressed for another century or so. There’s no point in going for a Ph.D. in theoretical physics, now, is there? Think of the effort I am saving.

  14. DanaThomas on August 3, 2014 at 5:46 am

    With this mention of the “Cannae Drive”, maybe this means on a symbolic level that we’ll have to watch out for a “Carthaginian” use of the technique, with a society featuring aggressive mercantilism with a bit of first-born infant sacrifice thrown in. Not the best herald for a new financial system either…

    • Joseph P. Farrell on August 3, 2014 at 5:53 am

      …lol!… thanks for that, Dana! I needed a good laugh today. On a more serious note, I wouldn’t put it past some of them!
