|What is "Scalar Electromagnetics"?
By Rick Andersen, 7/3/97
Scalar EM is the brainchild of Lt. Col.
E. Bearden, a systems analyst and wargames specialist who has been
advocating a view of electromagnetics which is based on the notion
a vast, unseen background of scalar energies (as opposed to vector
energies) which underly all physical reality.
What electrical engineers work with today, claims
is a subset of a higher-topology EM. Bearden claims that the
"Maxwell's Equations" taught today in electrical engineering are
an over-simplified subset of Maxwell's
original work. The pruning was done by Oliver Heaviside in the late
19th century; Heaviside took Maxwell's original equations, written in
quaternions (related to what we nowadays call spinors), and
them by lopping off the scalar part of the complex numbers, leaving the
easy-to-work-with vector part intact-- which radio engineers loved.
all, the entire electronics industry as we know it grew out of the
technologies of the early 1900's. Who can argue that the "vector"
Well, Bearden says that when Heaviside threw out
scalar part of the quaternionic EM equation, he unknowingly threw out

the problem. That's because the scalar part of the quaternion,
to Bearden, was the part that captured or modeled the "stress on the

we CAN unify gravity with EM, and convert back and forth between them,
if we understand how vectors and scalars relate to one another and what
the ramifications are.
Vector fields can
be assembled by properly interfering scalar potentials (predicted
in 1903-4 by mathematician E.T. Whittaker and probably engineered
Conversely, scalar fields can be created by
interfering vector fields, in a nonlinear medium. Varying the vector
rhythmically produces what Bearden calls "scalar waves". These ripples
in spacetime are believed to induce a wavelike stress in the "aether";
this in turn leads to engineering the structure of pure space
mass in a localized area-- in other words, implementing General
(spacetime curvature) on the lab bench!
Tom Bearden has gone on record, in several of his
published in the 1980's, to proclaim that the former Soviet Union had
a fantastic arsenal of mind-bending weaponry based on this scalar
which they called "energetics" and which Bearden claims was
from certain discarded ideas originated by Nikola
Tesla. Now that the Cold War is apparently over, we're not sure how
Bearden views his previous assertions, but we note that he has turned
attention away from Soviet scalar weapons and toward the production of
"free energy" from the vacuum of space, using the principles of optical
phase conjugation, but in a more generalized mode.
Here is the point:
If Bearden is correct in his Scalar EM theory,
can build devices which would enable us to alter gravity, time,
and the apparent mass of an object. This of course has ENORMOUS implications
for military applications, space-vehicle drives, time-travel,
paranormal phenomena, and just about every other area one can think
The Big Question is, Will the 21st century see
development, and implementation of Bearden's ideas (in plain public
mind you), or will Scalar EM be found to have been just another dead
Do certain world governments have these devices NOW?... Bearden says at
least "three other nations, not hostile to the U.S.," now possess
