Lt. Col., U.S. Army (retired) Thomas E. Bearden's letter to ARPA
This is a serious technical response to your website’s invitation to offer suggestions, recommendations, and comments. I would deeply appreciate it if you did treat this as a serious response, whose results come from 40 years of personal arduous work in the breakthrough energy area. I deeply believe that understanding some of these matters offered and discussed can directly and strongly assist you in your overwhelmingly important mission to solve — as quickly and completely as possible — the energy crisis now besetting our country and the other nations of the world.
As an unexpected bonus, we also include an explanation (which was known to Dirac!) of how to directly and rather simply engineer physical reality as you wish. Please have the proper physicists study that area intensely; the Soviet Union already is well-aware of this area and its development. Also, a very fine team of physicists, led by Dr. Dan Solomon, have presently published rigorous papers in leading physics journals pointing out that the arbitrary removal of negative energy from physics in 1934 was a grave error, totally against scientific method.
Among other things, we will point out that the real reason for the present energy crisis is the century-old deliberate crippling of our electrical engineering model; this reason has not been understood by our own academicians and is still not understood by them. It is easily shown to be true, however, by a straightforward higher group symmetry analysis of the Heaviside-Lorentz equations used as the model for electrical engineering.
The points we make are very technical; please have one or more physicists, knowledgeable in group theory and also higher group symmetry electrodynamics, examine the attached papers and advise you.
The main points of my comments and response, including a little necessary background, are:
1. In 1892 electrical engineering had not yet been born. Maxwell had died in 1879, and almost immediately several scientists — Heaviside, Gibbs, etc. — had leaped in and savaged and highly simplified Maxwell’s quaternion-like theory (which was 20 equations in 20 unknowns), producing vector algebra in the process. “Electrical engineering” had not yet been born; knowledge of electrodynamics was confined to approximately three dozen physicists worldwide who knew something about electrodynamics.
2. Lorentz was toying with the Heaviside equations, preparing to use them as the model to be used for the new technology to be called “electrical engineering” and to be taught in the universities. Lorentz was a great scientist — but also noted for “borrowing” other scientists’ work and publishing it and receiving credit for it. This has been validated by Okun and Jackson (Jackson is one of the leading classical electrodynamicists of the world). See J. D. Jackson and L. B. Okun, “Historical roots of gauge invariance,” Reviews of Modern Physics, Vol. 73, July 2001, p. 663-680. Discusses roots and history of gauge invariance, verifies that Ludwig Lorenz (without the â€œtâ€) first symmetrically regauged Maxwell’s equations, although it has been misattributed to H. A. Lorentz (with the â€œtâ€) as being first. This is an excellent coverage of the history of who did what and when, and who got credit for it!
3. The beginning rise of electric power was proceeding. Historically, this was also a time when certain rich and ruthless financiers were setting up huge financial empires and were consolidating them. Such a ruthless man was the leading financier J. P. Morgan, as is well-established by history.
4. The major electrical researcher/experimenter/inventor of impact was Nikola Tesla, who had discovered that the “medium was active” — in short, he had discovered aspects of energy from the modern seething virtual state vacuum. Electrical engineering did not exist; for his university education, Tesla had been educated in the physics of the day. Modern physics such as quantum mechanics, special and general relativity, gauge field theory, and quantum field theory, however, was not yet born.
