As you might have guessed, I've been focused this week and last week mostly on "space stuff" and "strange stuff", courtesy of one of our regular reader/article contributors, "B", who has turned into quite the patent sniffer-discoverer, and this latest one is... well, let's put it this way: George Lucas would love this one, and it's one of those things that I just have to talk about, because "B" found something in this patent that will probably send your suspicion meter into the red zone, just like it did mine. Here's the patent pdf:
You've probably already noticed that this patent is relatively recent (August 2018), and you've also probably noticed that, like that "electrostatic generator" that "B" found and that I blogged about, it is also assigned to the US Navy, and it's by the same individual. And finally, you may have noticed it is by the same inventor.
Before we go any further, however, a cautionary word about patents: if one looks at patents, people are filing patents all the time for all sorts of weird stuff. Patents are a claim, not a proof, for an idea. Presumably, people actually build what they patent, and the people reviewing patents have to determine if the claim at least is possible, but in the final analysis, just because someone files a patent implies nothing about whether the idea does or does not work. The patent claims it does, but one has to build it to make sure. Obviously, I have no way of building a device as described in this patent. So with that little caveat on the record, let's dive into the high octane speculation.
If one looks in the pdf file at the first page and at the part labeled "Int. Cl. (51)", one reads the following:
B64G 1 / 40 ( 2006 . 01 )
GOIV 7 / 04 ( 2006 . 01 )
H05H 3 / 04 ( 2006 . 01 )
GOIV 7700 ( 2006 . 01 )
HO1J 61 / 16 ( 2006 . 01
which, if one goes to the Google presentation of this patent, describes the classification fields for what the patent is about( see en?inventor=Salvatore+Cezar+Pais), where these headings are decoded as follows:
B64G1/409 Unconventional spacecraft propulsion systems
0009 ] Local Vacuum energy state can be seen as the collective energy state ( structure , which contains the ground state of minimum energy ( baseline fluctuations ) that is the quantum vacuum , and the excited state of energy ( induced fluctuations ) generated by matter or any other source of energy in that spacetime locality . According to quantum field theory , matter , energy , and spacetime are emergent con structs which arise out of a foundational structure , which is the Vacuum energy state . Matter is confined energy , bound within fields , and may be thought of as a spectrum of different vibrational ( and possibly gyratational ) frequencies of the Vacuum energy state . The engineering of the Vacuum metastructure ( since there are multiple Vacuum structures ) has been discussed from a General Relativity perspective , and from a quantum field theory perspective . We are immersed in an ocean of energy ( the Vacuum energy state ) , yet ordinarily we seem not to interact with it . This is because under normal circumstances ( at or near equilibrium ) , the Vacuum state is homogeneous , isotropic , Lorentz invariant , in other words , it is symmetric . If this symmetry ( far - from equilibrium ) is broken and strong interactions with the Vacuum energy state become possible , the manner in which the collective fields exchange energy with one another will be affected .[ 0010 ] If we perform a " gedanken ” ( thought ) experiment we can observe that the coupling of high frequency spin with high frequency vibration ( especially for rapidly accelerated spin / vibration of an electrically charged system ( object ) puts every point on the boundary of the object in a state of coherent superposition , thereby , inducing a macroscopic quantum phenomenon .
US 2018 / 0229864 A1 Aug . 16 , 2018 [ 0038 ] The implications of colliding / focusing HFGWs generated by rapidly accelerated vibration / spin of electrically charged systems can be used in applications of propulsion as well as the extreme disruption of a planetary body ( if so desired ) since it can be shown that the energy level ( gain in potential energy ) capable of annihilating a planet such as the Earth is on the order of 1032 Joules ( which may be achieved with the concept at hand ; Eannibil ( 3 / 5 ) ( GMp ? / Rp ) ; Mp and Rp are the planet mass and radius , respec tively ) . Imagine a plurality of HFGWG devices ( a minimum of four modules ) , aligned around a planetary body or plan etoid ( asteroid / comet ) along a planar axis ( four cardinal points ) .The emitted HFGWs would impinge on each other in such a manner as to severely disrupt the vacuum energy state at a spacetime locality denoting a point of impact ( collision of gravitons with gravitons ) . At this disruption point , energy would be amplified to such a high degree as to generate a spacetime curvature singularity , leading to total destruction of the planetary body or planetoid ( which can be an asteroid or comet on an impact trajectory with Earth ).
