In one of the prior W.O.O.D. postings a discussion of unusual physics and odd potential drives for spaceships and things got started:

Well tonight I was “in that kind of mood” and started chasing some parts of it. Thinking it likely to be similar to chasing Cold Fusion Stories… (Wonder if Leonardo Corp is still promising “Real Soon Now”?;-)
There’s a lot of strange stuff out there, and I’m still wondering how much of it is a crock, or how much is just about to be commercial… So this is going to be a semi-random collection of odd bits.
First up, a 2 hour interview with a guy who says the “Tic Tac” UFOs are real, and are produced for the USAF. That the USA was trying to gently acknowledge the tech is real without disrupting the whole economy when they admitted the video of them from F-18 Navy Fighter Jets was real. But then everybody just kind of didn’t care. Here was the military saying “yeah, that shit’s real, might even be space men” and nobody blinked, or really even talked about it much.
Yeah I watched the whole thing. Where I had specific knowledge; none of his claims contradicted what I already know. I know that’s weak tea for saying the more exotic bits are real, but it’s a much of a validation as I can make.
IF what he says is true, then the USA has had a method of using EM fields to cancel inertia for about 20 years. The “tic-tack” video was released in 2017, but of an event in 2004, which means the craft were constructed before that…
Then there’s this odd patent the reference. Some of it reads like baffle-gab, but QM is like that…
I don’t expect the Navy to be making bogus patent claims and doing deception of the patent office… OTOH, I don’t know for a fact that this is a real patent and not just “some web page”… But if it IS real…
Craft using an inertial mass reduction device
Apr 28, 2016 – The United States of America as represented by the Secretary of the Navy
A craft using an inertial mass reduction device comprises of an inner resonant cavity wall, an outer resonant cavity, and microwave emitters. The electrically charged outer resonant cavity wall and the electrically insulated inner resonant cavity wall form a resonant cavity. The microwave emitters create high frequency electromagnetic waves throughout the resonant cavity causing the resonant cavity to vibrate in an accelerated mode and create a local polarized vacuum outside the outer resonant cavity wall.
The microwave emitter(s) 300 may be an electromagnetic field generator. The preferred electromagnetic generator is the one described in U.S. patent application Ser. No. 14/807,943, entitled “Electromagnetic Field Generator and Method to Generate an Electromagnetic Field,” filed on Jul. 24, 2015. The application is herein incorporated by reference, and has the same inventor. However, the microwave emitters 300 may be any type of microwave emitter or radio frequency emitter that is practicable.
As shown in FIGS. 1 and 2, the craft 10 has a plurality of microwave emitters 300. The microwave emitters 300 are arranged within the resonant cavity 150, and may be antennas (high radio frequency emitter sources) in the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum range of 300 Megahertz to 300 Gigahertz. The plurality of microwave emitters 300 are arranged within the resonant cavity 150 such that the required electrical charge is present through the resonant cavity 150 in order to cause the outer resonant cavity wall 100 to vibrate in an accelerated mode.
As described, in one of its embodiments, the craft 10 utilizes microwave-induced vibration within a resonant annular cavity (the resonant cavity 150). The manner and effectiveness with which the microwave energy couples with the outer resonant cavity wall 100 is called the cavity Q-factor (the inner resonant cavity wail 200 is electrically insulated and does not vibrate). This parameter can be written as the (energy stored/energy lost) ratio and is in the range of 104 to 109 (and beyond), depending on whether ordinary metal (Aluminum or Copper at room temperature) or cryogenically cooled superconducting material (Yttrium Barium Copper Oxide or Niobium) is used for the outer resonant cavity wall 100 and outside mold line skin of the craft. One must realize that the high energy/high frequency electromagnetic field generator responsible for the inertial mass diminution effect would generate a repulsive EM energy field while in earth’s atmosphere, thereby repelling air molecules in its path of ascent/flight. Consequently, once in orbital space, by local vacuum polarization (quantum field fluctuations’ modification/coherence), a repulsive gravity effect (recall the negative pressure of the polarized vacuum) would permit swift movement of the craft 10 (which can be, but without limitation, a cone or lenticular triangle/delta wing configuration).
It is possible to envision a hybrid aerospace/undersea craft (HAUC), which due to the physical mechanisms enabled with the inertial mass reduction device, can function as a submersible craft capable of extreme underwater speeds (lack of water-skin friction) and enhanced stealth capabilities (non-linear scattering of RF and sonar signals). This hybrid craft would move with great ease through the air/space/water mediums, by being enclosed in a vacuum plasma bubble/sheath, due to the coupled effects of EM field-induced air/water particles repulsion and vacuum energy polarization.
It also has some discussion of theory, but it again reads a lot like baffle gab (though I do recognize some of the QM terms as things I’ve heard before).
There are four known fundamental forces which control matter and, therefore, control energy. The four known forces are strong nuclear forces, weak nuclear forces, electromagnetic force, and gravitational force. In this hierarchy of forces, the electromagnetic force is perfectly positioned to be able to manipulate the other three. A stationary electric charge gives rise to an electric (electrostatic) field, while a moving charge generates both an electric and a magnetic field (hence the electromagnetic field). Additionally, an accelerating charge induces electromagnetic radiation in the form of transverse waves, namely light. Mathematically, as well as physically, electromagnetic field intensity can be represented as the product of electric field strength and magnetic field strength. Electromagnetic fields act as carriers for both energy and momentum, thus interacting with physical entities at the most fundamental level.
Artificially generated high energy electromagnetic fields, such as those generated with a high energy electromagnetic field generator (HEEMFG), interact strongly with the vacuum energy state. The vacuum energy state can be described as an aggregate/collective state, comprised of the superposition of all quantum fields’ fluctuations permeating the entire fabric of spacetime. High energy interaction with the vacuum energy state can give rise to emergent physical phenomena, such as force and matter fields’ unification. According to quantum field theory, this strong interaction between the fields is based on the mechanism of transfer of vibrational energy between the fields. The transfer of vibrational energy further induces local fluctuations in adjacent quantum fields which permeate spacetime (these fields may or may not be electromagnetic in nature). Matter, energy, and spacetime are all emergent constructs which arise out of the fundamental framework that is the vacuum energy state.
Everything that surrounds us, ourselves included, can be described as macroscopic collections of fluctuations, vibrations, and oscillations in quantum mechanical fields. Matter is confined energy, bound within fields, frozen in a quantum of time. Therefore, under certain conditions (such as the coupling of hyper-frequency axial spin with hyper-frequency vibrations of electrically charged systems) the rules and special effects of quantum field behavior also apply to macroscopic physical entities (macroscopic quantum phenomena).
Moreover, the coupling of hyper-frequency gyrational (axial rotation) and hyper-frequency vibrational electrodynamics is conducive to a possible physical breakthrough in the utilization of the macroscopic quantum fluctuations vacuum plasma field (quantum vacuum plasma) as an energy source (or sink), which is an induced physical phenomenon.
The quantum vacuum plasma (QVP) is the electric glue of our plasma universe. The Casimir Effect, the Lamb Shift, and Spontaneous Emission, are specific confirmations of the existence of QVP.
It is important to note that in region(s) where the electromagnetic fields are strongest, the more potent the interactions with the QVP, therefore, the higher the induced energy density of the QVP particles which spring into existence (the Dirac Sea of electrons and positrons). These QVP particles may augment the obtained energy levels of the HEEMFG system, in that energy flux amplification may be induced.
It is possible to reduce the inertial mass and hence the gravitational mass, of a system/object in motion, by an abrupt perturbation of the non-linear background of local spacetime (the local vacuum energy state), equivalent to an accelerated excursion far from thermodynamic equilibrium (analogous with symmetry-breaking induced by abrupt changes of state/phase transitions). The physical mechanism which drives this diminution in inertial mass is based on the negative pressure (hence repulsive gravity) exhibited by the polarized local vacuum energy state (local vacuum polarization being achieved by a coupling of accelerated high frequency vibration with accelerated high frequency axial rotation of an electrically charged system/object) in the close proximity of the system/object in question. In other words, inertial mass reduction can be achieved via manipulation of quantum field fluctuations in the local vacuum energy state, in the immediate proximity of the object/system. Therefore it is possible to reduce a craft’s inertia, that is, its resistance to motion/acceleration by polarizing the vacuum in the close proximity of the moving craft.
Polarization of the local vacuum is analogous to manipulation/modification of the local space tie topological lattice energy density. As a result, extreme speeds can be achieved.
If we can engineer the structure of the local quantum vacuum state, we can engineer the fabric of our reality at the most fundamental level (thus affecting a physical system’s inertial and gravitational properties). This realization would greatly advance the fields of aerospace propulsion and power generation.
Is it a real device? Or just the ravings of a mad Ph.D. Student who got one over on the patent office? Ought to be possible to test it as 300 MHz is not hard to make these days. You can buy 5 GHz WiFi routers.
Then there’s this one:
I think I’ve seen this one before, but at least it has some simple drawings in it.
U.S. Navy Patents Triangular Craft Powered by ‘Quantum Vacuum Plasma’
TOBIAS & EMILY WAYLAND
APRIL 24, 2019
A recent patent filed by the U.S. Secretary of the Navy, and approved by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, shows the schematic diagram for a craft powered by “quantum vacuum plasma”.
According to the patent’s summary:
The present invention is directed to a craft using an inertial mass reduction device. The craft includes an inner resonant cavity wall, an outer resonant cavity, and microwave emitters. The outer resonant cavity wall and the inner resonant cavity wall form a resonant cavity. The microwave emitters create high frequency electromagnetic waves throughout the resonant cavity causing the outer resonant cavity wall to vibrate in an accelerated mode and create a local polarized vacuum outside the outer resonant cavity wall.
It is a feature of the present invention to provide a craft, using an inertial mass reduction device, that can travel at extreme speeds.
The craft would generate “high energy electromagnetic fields…[which] interact strongly with the vacuum energy state.”
This interaction would “give rise to emergent physical phenomena…based on the mechanism of transfer of vibrational energy.”
According to the patent, “The transfer of vibrational energy further induces local fluctuations in adjacent quantum fields which permeate spacetime…Matter, energy, and spacetime are all emergent constructs which arise out of the fundamental framework that is the vacuum energy state.”
“Everything that surrounds us, ourselves included, can be described as macroscopic collections of fluctuations, vibrations, and oscillations in quantum mechanical fields,” the document explained. “Matter is confined energy, bound within fields, frozen in a quantum of time. Therefore, under certain conditions…the rules and special effects of quantum field behavior also apply to macroscopic physical entities.”
This could result in the “possible physical breakthrough in the utilization of the macroscopic quantum fluctuations vacuum plasma field (quantum vacuum plasma) as an energy source.”
Essentially, the craft would warp reality around itself in order to travel with no frictional resistance.
Such technology is often speculated by researchers to explain the propulsion of UFOs, assuming they represent physical craft from another world. That speculation, along with the frequency of triangular UFO reports, has led some to wonder if the patent is based off of extraterrestrial technology.
Part of the December 2017 release regarding the Pentagon’s UFO program was the revelation that most of the $22 million allocated to the program went to an aerospace research company ran by Robert Bigelow.
The money was used by Bigelow Aerospace to modify buildings held in Las Vegas for the storage of metal alloys and other materials that former program head and Department of Defense intelligence officer Luis Elizondo claimed were recovered from UFOs.
It is unclear if this patent could be related to Bigelow Aerospace’s research, but speculation exists that the patented design could be based on a recovered craft.
Then, just to make it worse, we have Name Names with Credentials who were in position to know such things, claiming Space Aliens are real…
Former Israeli space security chief says extraterrestrials exist, and Trump knows about it
A “galactic federation” has been waiting for humans to “reach a stage where we will understand… what space and spaceships are,” Haim Eshed said.
Dec. 8, 2020, 1:52 PM UTC / Updated Dec. 8, 2020, 8:29 PM UTC
By Adela Suliman and Paul Goldman
A former Israeli space security chief has sent eyebrows shooting heavenward by saying that earthlings have been in contact with extraterrestrials from a “galactic federation.”
“The Unidentified Flying Objects have asked not to publish that they are here, humanity is not ready yet,” Haim Eshed, former head of Israel’s Defense Ministry’s space directorate, told Israel’s Yediot Aharonot newspaper. The interview in Hebrew ran on Friday, and gained traction after parts were published in English by the Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.
A respected professor and retired general, Eshed said the aliens were equally curious about humanity and were seeking to understand “the fabric of the universe.”
Now the only way travel between the stars is going to work is with some kind of really really fast space ship, and that’s not going to be a chemical rocket.
But an inertia free craft that can tap QM for energy from the fabric of space and get going near the speed of light WHILE deflecting any particles surrounding it, that could do the job nicely.
So IF Space Aliens are here having discussions with world leaders, then the QM Drive is almost certainly the way they did it.
FWIW, there’s also a Wiki on QM Drives with some of the same baffle gab like word use:
History and controversy
The name and concept is controversial. In 2008, Yu Zhu and others at China’s Northwestern Polytechnical University claimed to measure thrust from such a thruster, but called it a “microwave thruster without propellant” working on quantum principles. In 2011 it was mentioned as something to be studied by Harold G. White and his team at NASA’s Eagleworks Laboratories, who were working with a prototype of such a thruster. Other physicists, such as Sean M. Carroll and John Baez, dismiss it because the quantum vacuum as currently understood is not a plasma and does not possess plasma-like characteristics.
IF the Chinese are known to be working on it, and we’ve already got one, that’s the kind of timing where we start doing the releases of proof prior to their getting patents so we capture the commercial uses.
Theory of operation
Prototype resonant cavity thruster built by NASA Eagleworks
A vacuum can be viewed not as empty space but as the combination of all zero-point fields. According to quantum field theory the universe is made up of matter fields whose quanta are fermions (e.g. electrons and quarks), and force fields whose quanta are bosons (i.e. photons and gluons). All these fields have some intrinsic zero-point energy. Describing the quantum vacuum, a Physics Today article cited by White’s team describes this ensemble of fields as “a turbulent sea, roiling with waves associated with a panoply of force-mediating fields such as the photon and Higgs fields”. Given the equivalence of mass and energy expressed by Albert Einstein’s E = mc2, any point in space that contains energy can be thought of as having mass to create particles. Virtual particles spontaneously flash into existence and annihilate each other at every point in space due to the energy of quantum fluctuations. Many real physical effects attributed to these vacuum fluctuations have been experimentally verified, such as spontaneous emission, Casimir force, Lamb shift, magnetic moment of the electron and Delbrück scattering; these effects are usually called “radiative corrections”.
Casimir forces on parallel plates due to vacuum fluctuations
The Casimir effect is a weak force between two uncharged conductive plates caused by the zero-point energy of the vacuum. It was first observed experimentally by Lamoreaux (1997) and results showing the force have been repeatedly replicated. Several scientists including White have highlighted that a net thrust can indeed be induced on a spacecraft via the related “dynamical Casimir effect”. The dynamic Casimir effect was observed experimentally for the first time in 2011 by Wilson et al.
So some macro effects of QM have been observed and played with. AND Replicated.
This cumulated with Birkeland & Brevik (2007) who showed that electromagnetic vacuum fields can cause broken symmetries (anisotropy) in the transfer of momentum or, put another way, that the extraction of momentum from electromagnetic zero-point fluctuations is possible in an analogous way that the extraction of energy is possible from the Casimir effect. Birkeland & Brevik highlight that momentum asymmetries exist throughout nature and that the artificial stimulation of these by electric and magnetic fields have already been experimentally observed in complex liquids.
Has citations, so ought to be easy to check them and see if they are valid.
As an aside: In addition to the Tic-Tac videos and events off of San Diego, California, the “Gimbal” craft the first video talks about is from an incident off Florida:
According to Lt. Graves, there are more than 50 witnesses of multiple UAP encounters. Five of them spoke to The New York Times but only Graves and Accoin allowed to be named.
Graves and others report that the objects demonstrated outstanding flying capabilities, such as 12 hours in air operation at high speeds, and no visible engine or infrared exhaust plumes. Also mid-air tilting like a spinning top without losing altitude, as well as low visual observability is mentioned. They appeared almost daily, high in the skies over the East Coast, and were noticed by the pilots after their radar systems were upgraded to the latest iteration.
In late 2014, a Super Hornet pilot had a near collision with one of the objects, and an official Mishap-Report was filed. The pilot of that aircraft told Lt. Graves that he and his wingman were flying in tandem about 100 feet apart when something flew between them. The pilot decribed the obejct as “a sphere encasing a cube”.
So we seem to have a lot of observed events of craft behaving like they have little or no inertia. We have patents filed for such a craft. We have folks in positions of authority saying the video of them is real. And we have Respected Names saying space aliens are real but bashful.
Then they tell the world, and nobody really seems to care.
Somehow I get the impression that a fleet of Space Aliens could land at the UN and give a speech and other than some decent news ratings, nobody would react much. We are the Star Trek generation after all…
