Via NexusNewsfeed.com: Extracting energy from the quantum vacuum: can zero-point energy power our planet? by Arjun Walia
The Facts: Quantum mechanics has discovered that "empty" space is not empty, and that it's full of energy. Can this energy be utilized and drawn upon to provide power and replace our energy industry?
Reflect On: What would be the implications of new energy technology that allowed everyone on the planet access to clean energy?
The famous world-renowned American theoretical physicist John Wheeler once told the world that,
“No point is more central than this, that space is not empty, it is the
seat of the most violent physics.” Notice the importance he put on the
fact that space is not empty, and that there is no point “more central”
than that. The fact that space is not empty has huge implications, some
of which we will explore in this article.
Nikola Tesla said that
“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make
more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its
existence.” There is no doubting this statement given the fact that to
our senses, an atom, the bits of matter that make up what we perceive to
be our physical material world, is 99.9 percent empty space. But again,
it’s not empty, it’s actually full of energy. The field of quantum
mechanics was key for questioning the perceived material foundations of
reality by showing that atoms and subatomic particles are not really
This empty space that exists all around us, this
non-perceivable “substance,” for lack of a better term, has been written
about for thousands of years. I’d like to use an example from ancient
And they allowed Apollonius to ask questions; and he asked
them of what they thought the cosmos was composed; but they replied;
“Of elements.” “Are there then four?” he asked. “Not four,” said
Larchas, “but five.” “And how can there be a fifth,” said Apollonius,
“alongside of water and air and earth and fire?” “There is the
ether,” replied the other, “which we must regard as the stuff of which
gods are made; for just as all mortal creatures inhale the wire, so do
immortal and divine natures inhale the ether.” “Am I,” said Appollonius,
“to regard the universe as a living creature?” “Yes,” said the other. – The Life of Apollonius of Tyana, Philostratus, 220AD (source)
In the past, many referred to this “empty space” as ether or aether.
perceptible matter comes from a primary substance, or tenuity beyond
conception, filling all space, the akasha or luminiferous ether, which
is acted upon by the life giving Prana or creative force, calling into
existence, in never-ending cycles all things and phenomena.”– Nikola
Tesla, Man’s Greatest Achievement, 1907
Today, physicists seem to refer to it as the “Quantum Vacuum” or “Zero-Point” energy field...
