There’s No Such Thing As Empty Space

sparkle03There’s always something, says a Swedish study. Phenomenica reports:

Scientists claim to have produced particles of light out of vacuum, proving that space is not empty.

An international team says that its ingenious experiment in which tiny parcels of light, or photons, are produced out of empty space has confirmed that a vacuum contains quantum fluctuations of energy, the ‘Nature’ journal reported.

In fact, the scientists have demonstrated for the first time a strange phenomenon known as the dynamical Casimir effect, or DCE for short.

The DCE involves stimulating the vacuum to shed some of the myriad “virtual” particles that fleet in and out of existence, making them real and detectable. Moreover, the real photons produced by the DCE in their experiment collectively retain a peculiar quantum signature that ordinary light lacks.

The research, led by Chris Wilson of Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, shows that a related dynamic effect can occur when such a mirror moves very fast through the vacuum. The DCE was predicted over 40 years ago, but had not yet been observed experimentally due to the difficulty of creating the required experimental conditions.

“The DCE was conceived as a kind of thought experiment, sort of like Schrodinger’s Cat. According to quantum theory, if one could accelerate a mirror very quickly to near the speed of light, the mirror would radiate light as some of the mirror’s motional energy is imparted to virtual photons lurking in the vacuum, converting them into real photons.

“But it is practically impossible to accelerate a massive mirror to such high velocities. The required accelerations would be greater than the kind of shocks found in supernova or nuclear weapons explosions,” said team member Prof Tim Duty.

Instead, the scientists set out to demonstrate the DCE using microwaves, like those used for mobile phone and wireless communication signals. And instead of a massive mirror, they used a tiny microcircuit called a Superconducting Quantum Interference Device, or SQUID.

    Yes, this is true. Unfortunately it has been known since the days of Tesla that the vacuum of space is not empty, but instead contains massive amounts of energy.  

    As is known today since 1957, any dipole is a broken symmetry – and that means that “something formerly nonobservable (virtual) becomes observable”. Any charge is also a dipole, since it polarizes its surrounding virtual state vacuum with opposite charge. Then it takes (absorbs) virtual state EM energy from that seething virtual state vacuum medium, and re-emits it as real, observable EM energy (real photons) in all directions.” 

    Check out Whittaker’s 1903 decomposition of the “electrostatic” scalar potential into bidirectional longitudinal EM waves, and his 1904 decomposition of any field and wave pattern into two such potentials comprised of bidirectional longitudinal EM waves. 

    And if you want to see this phenomena in action check out the NASA STS-75 tether video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=As-wYmFYb3I

    In the video you can see the tether break after it builds up a large enough electrical current. Then the tether becomes a floating electrostatic scalar potential which begins to absorb virtual photons from the vacuum of space and re-emits them as superimposed bidirectional longitudinal EM waves pairs. They are not UFO’s, they are photons which have a specific structure in relation to the scalar potential that causes them.

    This science is heavily regulated and controlled, especially in the USA. With it you can build energy devices that consume no fuel, communications that travel faster than light, manipulate the structure of a materials atomic nuclei and so on. 

    Jacob – I thank you for posting this, amazing information.

      This maybe off topic a little but you reminded me of a cool fact. Energy cannot be created or destroyed, right, law #1. Energy just exists indefinitely everywhere and all that’s needed to make it do work is a little conversion from one form to another. Law #2 says this can’t happen without losses because of entropy. BUT……………… Entropy only applies to closed material systems and matter. So if we were to, lets say, have a quantum system using only electrons to convert non-observable energy to observable energy. Boom! We now negate the 2nd law and have indefinite energy at our disposal for use in a load. 

      So why is this not done?  If there is a way around the 2nd law, why not use it? 

      I leave the answer up to the conspiracy theorists. Why, you might ask? Because there is no legitimate reason why we are stuck consuming so much energy when it’s in infinite abundance all around us. Unless you account for corruption, greed and the need for endless profit. Something is not right, it’s almost 2012 and we still use fossil fuels as are primary energy source. Where are all the quantum energy devices!!?? Quasicrystals, anyone, anyone? 

      I want my fucking hover car dammit!

        You are buying into the cultural myth of exponentially expanding technological complexity. Which primarily exists only because of the cheap abundant energy which became available with the exploitation of fossil fuels.

    Maybe that empty space, that isn’t empty does indeed contain energy, a very special kind of energy. Potential Energy, the very thing we use for ideas in theory and as we actualise these ideas they become physical reality requiring observable space, all the while other ideas disassemble back into potential energy, which waits beyond the observable and actual constraints of physical space and time to potentially become actual. Ahh how sweet.

    Nature abhors a vacuum. Is that why the universe is expanding perhaps? Because beyond its borders is vacuum?

    You say you’ve heard that the masters of Eastern esoteric doctrines
    demand absolute secrecy about their teachings. Perhaps those masters are
    just indulging in being masters. I’m not a master, I’m only a warrior.
    So I really don’t know what a master feels like.    It
    doesn’t matter what one reveals or what one keeps to oneself. Everything
    we do, everything we are, rests on our personal power. If we have
    enough of it, one word uttered to us might be sufficient to change the
    course of our lives. But if we don’t have enough personal power, the
    most magnificent piece of wisdom can be revealed to us and that
    revelation won’t make a damn bit of difference.
        I’m going to utter perhaps the greatest piece of knowledge anyone can voice. Let me see what you can do with it.
      
    Do you know that at this very moment you are surrounded by eternity?
    And do you know that you can use that eternity, if you so desire?
       
    There! Eternity is there! All around! Do you know that you can
    extend yourself forever in any of the directions I have pointed to? Do
    you know that one moment can be eternity? This is not a riddle; it’s a
    fact, but only if you mount that moment and use it to take the totality
    of yourself forever in any direction.
        You didn’t have
    this knowledge before, now you do. I have revealed it to you, but it
    doesn’t make a bit of difference, because you don’t have enough personal
    power to utilize my revelation. Yet if you did have enough power, my
    words alone would serve as the means for you to round up the totality of
    yourself and to get the crucial part of it out of the boundaries in
    which it is contained.
        Your body is the boundary I’m
    talking about. One can get out of it. We are a feeling, an awareness
    encased here. We are luminous beings and for a luminous being only
    personal power matters.

    “required experimental conditions” what absolute zero. even our space around us, earth, is being blasted by radiation from the sun. To act like space is empty is forgetting about basic concepts.

    • Elmyr23

      we know magnetic fields exist to all 8 or 9 planets yet we talk about space being empty. So one explin that plz.
