SOUND, PHONONS, AND ANTI-GRAVITY

August 23, 2018 By Joseph P. Farrell

Every now and then one of our regular readers finds one of those "gems" that can't be ignored, and today is no different, as Mr. I.R. found this paper (he was the first of many), and passed it along, together with his own outline of a "high octane speculation." The essence of the story? Some scientists are theorizing that perhaps sound waves have inherent anti-gravity properties:

Physicists Say There Could Be a Strange Source of 'Negative Gravity' All Around Us

The core of the article lies here:

Still, it's previously been thought that these phonons couldn't be affected by gravity - or have an effect on gravity - because they don't carry mass.

But earlier research by the team's leader, Alberto Nicolis, which was published in Physical Review Letters in May, provided some experimental evidence that this might not be the case - at least not under extreme conditions.

The experiment was conducted in zero-temperature superfluids, which are a strange type of fluid that flow with no resistance at all at temperatures close to absolute zero.

Under those conditions, Nicolis and his team reported seeing phonons' trajectories bend upwards, seemingly in opposition to the effect of gravity.

"In a gravitational field phonons slowly accelerate in the opposite direction that you would expect, say, a brick to fall," one of the team, Rafael Krichevsky, told Live Science.

The effect is too small to measure with existing technology, and there are also other potential explanations for this trajectory that have nothing to do with gravity.

But Nicolis' latest paper builds on the idea that the phonons were generating some type of negative gravitational field.

They propose that "the (tiny) effective gravitational mass of the phonon generates a (tiny) gravitational field. And the source of this gravitational field travels with the phonon," the team writes on arXiv.

"Thus, in a very physical sense, the phonon carries (negative) mass."

Now, we're not going to go into all the calculations carried out because they're pretty intense (you can read all about them in the paper).

But in short, the team was able to show mathematically that classical sound waves could carry mass - and not just in superfluids or the quantum world, but in real-world settings.

"We showed that, contrary to common belief, sound waves carry gravitational mass, in a standard Newtonian sense: they are affected by gravity, but they also source gravity," the team concludes.

Now for those currently reading, or who have just read, my earlier book Grid of the Gods or my latest book Microcosm and Medium...

...this will not come as any surprise, for in both books I have speculated that ancient temples, and later, churches, were deliberately placed on certain key nodal points of the world to modulate information into the "planetary field." The chief means of doing this was via sound, and if these scientists are correct, acoustic waves are inherently gravitational. In effect, what one is saying is that like any wave, information can be modulated into that wave, which then becomes a carrier wave for the information. One may think of the phenomenon as a kind of "gravito-acoustic" wave, if the theorectical speculation should bear any fruit.

But as Mr. I.R. pointed out in his email to me, a more exciting and tantalizing high octane speculation, however, is that if this approach should be proven to be true, it would give an actual basis in science for some very ancient legends, stretching from Egypt to Tibet to South America. And as I shall also mention, even to a more contemporary bit of lore. With respect to the ancient legends, in Egypt there are legends to the effect that the priests levitated the giant stones of their temples and pyramids with sound, and simply moved and positioned them into place. From Tibet, there are similar stories of the monks using chant and musical instruments (in most cases a large horn-like instrument) to move large heavy rocks. There are similar suggestive legends from South America and some indications of a similar tradition in Meso-America. If the paper should be true, then these legends take on new life.

A more contemporary story comes from UFO lore and from the 19th century airship mystery. My friend and colleague Walter Bosley has commented on occasion that his father, whom he believes with good reason had been involved in some highly classified black projects (see Shimmering Light By Walter Bosley), told him that one off the exotic technologies he saw had to be activated - literally - by a tuning fork. When struck to the craft, it levitated. The clear implication? Acoustics had something to do with the craft's alleged anti-gravity properties.

There is, as the article points out, already a bit of evidence that their speculations might be true:

But earlier research by the team's leader, Alberto Nicolis, which was published in Physical Review Lettersin May, provided some experimental evidence that this might not be the case - at least not under extreme conditions.

It's far from proof. By the same token, it's far from disproof.

But there's another bit of ancient legend, too, that the paper has implications for, far more disturbing implications. In Giza Death Star Destroyed I pointed out that the fourth tablet of the Bablylonian epic, the Enuma Elish, that Marduk's weapon involved in the destruction of Tiamat, which I understood to be a planet, had every appearance of being a kind of acoustic weapon.

Or to put it in more lapidary terms, what can be used to levitate, can be used to pulverize...

See you on the flip side...
