DMB writes: Theoretically speaking, available energy for our economic energy needs may seemingly come two ways from the Zero-point. Using the Zero-point as a direct-energy source, we extract what available energy we need for a particular endeavor, and, in process, this highly-ordered energy eventually degrades in terms of entropic orderliness and usability... until finally it becomes ambient heat from which no more available energy may (according to thermodynamic convention) be extracted. With each process undertaken using direct Zero-point energy as outlined, the average temperature of the environment increases.
In light of our potential global warming situation, perhaps
humanity may benefit if, when the time appears ripe, the scientific
community investigated the possibility of using the Zero-point as a
near-infinite capacity "heat-sink" as well as a direct-energy source.
Using the basic principles of heat engines, if a "heat-sink" capable of
absorbing ambient thermal energy into the Zero-point could be
developed, humanity could actually transform the ambient heat of the
globe and the universe at large into useable energy. This ambient heat,
according to conventional thermodynamic wisdom, has no potential for
generating power and, under conditions of Global Warming, might
actually be considered a form of pollution.
immense inertia of society may be geared toward amassing physical
wealth and temporal power, perhaps the scientific community may
overcome its own inertia such that the potentially disruptive power of
the Zero-point could appear harnessed in a way that is not only
physically and economically safe, but that also at least points toward
the spiritual wisdom of restraint - even though our capacity for energy
generation may soon "know no foreseeable limits."
the idea that attachment on the level of form seldom holds any real
answers, I hope I can be satisfied with a fuzzy openness to whatever
may unfold in this regard... however, I do have an agenda as yet,
though as far as I'm concerned, the agenda seems pretty disjointed.
Ideas have been simmering about Zero-point "Sinkholes" for a while, and
in pondering them "aloud," I guess I can't help but "wax spiritual" on
y'all. But before that happens full-throttle, back to more boring
Superconductors as Zero-Point Entropy "Sinkholes"
materials appear said to "reject all incident DC-magnetic fields," with
alternating (AC) magnetic fields being rejected (or reflected) to a
degree inversely-proportional with the frequency of the incident
radiation, provided that the incident fields do not appear so large as
to "swamp" the superconductivity of the material itself. With a
superconductor exposed to "randomized" electromagnetic radiation, the
surface currents induced one moment seem very likely to find themselves
partially "canceled-out" by incoming randomized radiation at a later
moment in time. Hence, superconductors may exhibit a limited potential
to "sink" or cancel-out vast amounts of such "randomized"
electromagnetic energy, provided, again, that their superconductivity
does not find itself swamped by excessively large impinging electromagnetic energy flows (or the magnetic fields and induced surface currents associated with them).
thermal energy seems to have just such a "randomized" character, so
provided a superconductor has appropriate thermal insulation from the
potential for un-intended swamping by the heat of its surround, this
latent "heat sinking" capacity might appear manifest, with potential
applications in science and industry - specifically with regard to
cryogenic cooling, refrigeration and air conditioning... as well as
large and small-scale electricity generation via utilization of
thermally insulated superconductors as Zero-point "heat sinks" capable
of standing in place of the traditional "cold reservoir" in any number
of thermodynamic heat-engine types, and thereby transforming the
ambient heat (thermodynamic pollution) of the surround into a resource
capable of powering an entire economy, without the necessity of heating
up the planet. .
Enlightenment - a patent violation of "The Conservation of Energy Principle?"
by my own response to these ideas about the Zero-point, it seems likely
that reading this essay thus far may have "pushed some buttons" in many
people, as it alludes to a process whereby certain types of energy -
the primordial "stuff" of our world - may be effectively "disappeared."
If that which is truly Real is that which is Eternal, then we might
construe from this discussion and further investigations that this
world of form indeed appears an illusion projected by our ineradicable,
jointly-held, yet singular Subjectivity; an impermanent illusion, in
Buddhist language, that, with the "Enlightenment of All Beings,"
appears bound to disappear.
In the somewhat more hard-edged Christ-centered terminology of Gary Renard's first book The Disappearance of the Universe, based on A Course in Miracles,
the universe of form appears as a symptom of illness - a projection of
illusory guilt that will be undone with the realization "the
Atonement," or Undoing. Undoing this purgatorial world manufactured by
the collective ego, according to Renard's book, actually "disappears
the Universe," whilst revealing our Divinity in God's Presence -
Infinite Bliss, Joy, Peace, Happiness.
An even bigger
"button-pusher" might appear in the idea that some sort of device could
be built which might "disappear" our projected world without our
consent and readiness. Looking closer, this idea seems preposterous, as
such a hypothetical "machine" must appear as a projection of the Mind
itself. Even on the level of science, it seems that such a Zero-point
machine could only have a capability for absorbing certain types of
electromagnetic radiation. In addition, there appear many more types of
subtle energies, thought forms, etc. which manifest outside the realm
of "physics-proper" - and beyond the reach of scientific physical manipulation.
the greater value of discussing the potential ability of humanity
through science to "undo" certain limited types of physical energy lies
in a symbolic significance. If this world built of energy appears
"hellish" at times, and merely mildly purgatorial at others, the
scientific Law of Conservation of Energy seems a highly intellectual
way of saying "hell appears inescapable." It seems that, in an
intellectual climate predominated by this belief - even at the
forefront of scientific exploration - a demonstration that we could
have been mistaken in declaring Conservation of Energy an inviolate and
fundamental physical Law (a "Law" actually reflective of masked
despair) could appear a welcome relief, though one which many may deny
until ready to begin embracing humanity as spiritual beings having
The Power of Faith
all the paranoia surrounding the Zero-Point discussion, there appears
some trepidation about much further pursuing the implications of this
particular discussion without "testing the waters," so to speak. I
usually seem to ramble on far too long, anyway... as my mom used to
say, "You're just talking to hear your head roar..."
regard to openly discussing Zero-point energy, some dark fantasies have
been entertained about being whisked away by a black sedan and
receiving "punishment" for threatening to encroach on socioeconomic
turf where "hardball" appears the name of the game - not that there
isn't a time and a place for some such tactics. When dealing with
terrorist threats and the like, global security concerns seem to demand
a very "tough-love" approach.
Though viewing some covert
governmental actions and even certain 'Black-Ops' as excusable or even
legitimate interventions in global affairs may seem preposterous - and
although the corrupting force of appearing to have a big-hand to play
in governing world affairs does seem, inevitably, to come with
luciferic temptations to which some world leaders, military personnel,
and covert operatives fall prey, I have repeatedly observed the power
that warm regard and faith in authority figures has to beneficially
transform both internal states of mind and, surprisingly, the
unfoldment of what previously seemed like "external" events and
relationships in a purely objective world.
entirely possible that I have a vastly over-inflated sense of my
seeming understanding of superconductivity and Zero-Point issues, and I
certainly have posted what now seem some pretty ridiculous ideas on the
web... but, oh well... "...seemed like a good idea at the time...
