What is "Scalar Electromagnetics"?
By Rick Andersen, 7/3/97
Scalar EM is the brainchild of Lt. Col.
(retired) Thomas
E. Bearden, a systems analyst and wargames specialist who has been
advocating a view of electromagnetics which is based on the notion
of
a vast, unseen background of scalar energies (as opposed to vector
energies) which underly all physical reality.
What electrical engineers work with today, claims
Bearden,
is a subset of a highertopology EM. Bearden claims that the
four
"Maxwell's Equations" taught today in electrical engineering are
actually
an oversimplified 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
Hamilton's
quaternions (related to what we nowadays call spinors), and
"simplified"
them by lopping off the scalar part of the complex numbers, leaving the
easytoworkwith vector part intact which radio engineers loved.
After
all, the entire electronics industry as we know it grew out of the
telephone/radio
technologies of the early 1900's. Who can argue that the "vector"
approach
is inadequate?
Well, Bearden says that when Heaviside threw out
the
scalar part of the quaternionic EM equation, he unknowingly threw out
the
possibility of unifying gravitation with electromagnetism
which
has been a holy grail for scientists since Einstein himself wrestled
with
the problem. That's because the scalar part of the quaternion,
according
to Bearden, was the part that captured or modeled the "stress on the
aether"
which leads to curving/warping spacetime a la Einstein. Tom Bearden
says
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
evidently
be assembled by properly interfering scalar potentials (predicted
in 19034 by mathematician E.T. Whittaker and probably engineered
by
the Soviets).
Conversely, scalar fields can be created by
destructively
interfering vector fields, in a nonlinear medium. Varying the vector
components
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
and/or
mass in a localized area in other words, implementing General
Relativity
(spacetime curvature) on the lab bench!
Tom Bearden has gone on record, in several of his
books
published in the 1980's, to proclaim that the former Soviet Union had
created
a fantastic arsenal of mindbending weaponry based on this scalar
technology,
which they called "energetics" and which Bearden claims was
developed
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
his
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,
then we
can build devices which would enable us to alter gravity, time,
inertia,
and the apparent mass of an object. This of course has ENORMOUS implications
for military applications, spacevehicle drives, timetravel,
teleportation,
paranormal phenomena, and just about every other area one can think
of.
The Big Question is, Will the 21st century see
the acceptance,
development, and implementation of Bearden's ideas (in plain public
view,
mind you), or will Scalar EM be found to have been just another dead
end?....
Do certain world governments have these devices NOW?... Bearden says at
least "three other nations, not hostile to the U.S.," now possess
Scalar
technology.
