"The Question is: What is The Question?" J.A. Wheeler, The Daring Conservative

We need to distinguish several issues:

1. Is a virtual photon ZPF cutoff actually observed in the lab? - empirical question.
2. If yes, does that imply a new experimental effect of anisotropy in Lamb shift radiation as observed perhaps in angular correlation measurements on such radiation? - empirical question.
3.What is the value of the cutoff if it exists? - empirical question
4. If a virtual photon cutoff is a fact, is this evidence for non-commuting space-time? theoretical question

This is NO problem at all . In1940 Snyder proved that you could have a noncommutative space time
without violating Lorentz invariance by introducing a Planck scale cuttoff.

Max Born in 1938 and Heisenberg already had similar ideas. The commutator is

[ X^mu , X^nu ] = L theta^{ mu nu } = not equal to zero .

L = Planck scale

Snyder set the tensor theta^{ \mu \nu }

to be just given by M^{ \mu \nu } = a generalized rotation .

Yang also proposed a noncommutative spacetime algebra related to
the de Sitter and Anti de Sitter algebras that has TWO scales :
an upper and lower scale , like the Planck scale and the Hubble radius =
ultraviolet/Infrared DUALITY.

URL for this?

Tanaka even showed the holographic connection of YANG's algebra .
See hep-th/0406166.

I recommend very strongly Tanaka's papers because you will see the two scales and de Sitter,
Anti de Sitter space and holography.

In my work on the Extended Relativity Theory in Clifford Spaces there is NO violation of Lorentz inavriance despite the existence of Planck scale as a cutoff.

In Nottale's work it is the same story.

You need to see the work by Nottale on vacuum fluctuations and his solution to the cosmological constant problem. His work precedes, by many years, the work by all these people in the web .
I told Beck in person) to look up Nottale's work. I don't know if he did.

URLS? Does Notalle solve the cosmological constant problem with macro-quantum vacuum coherence the way I do? Of course he did not know about dark energy before 1999.


I see a lot of papers in the web today based on the same
ideas of Nottale , but nobody, hardly anybody, gives Nottale the proper credit.
The same Stueckelberg story. As Tony said :

It is the big shot who says these things that counts and NOT those who said them first.

Jack,

Yes, loop integrals as in Feynman integrals coming from Feynman diagrams with loops in them.

I would add to what I've said that if the cutoff were as low as 10^12Hz, ie. in the microwave region, then probably the Lamb shift will be much too small to agree with the exquisitely precise experiments that have been done.

Yes, and that is logically separate from the Lorentz invariance issue. Beck's result seems very strange, but I have not had time as yet to understand it.

With the best and latest up-to-date experiments and theory the Lamb shift data agrees with QED for a wide spectrum of atoms, ions, and isotope variations in nuclei according to Peter Mohr at NIST. I'm almost certain that imposing such a severe cutoff as 10^12 Hz would make the Lamb shift all but disappear. I put this question to Beck and Mackey and Beck responded that (I'm paraphrasing his response and abbreviating it considerably) the QED zero point field is not the real zero point field that was being measured in the Josephson experiment, but is rather a calculational artifice that isn't real and which requires a very high cutoff to agree with experiment. One of the main experimental pieces of evidence historically for the existence of the zero point field was in fact the Lamb shift though (a la Wentzel if I remember correctly), and so I don't find this argument compelling.

I certainly do not understand what Beck is allegedly saying! :-)

The Lamb shift is due entirely to the electromagnetic interaction, and so if there were other zero point energy terms from other fields with a negative sign they could cancel the electromagnetic contribution to the energy density without affecting the Lamb shift results.

Best wishes,

Mark

Jack,

As Tony pointed out, Pauli-Villars regularization can be applied to loop integrals which appear in QED. But I don't think the same approach works for the zero point field. Once one puts an energy cutoff in the zero point field, making its total energy per unit volume finite, then there is a preferred Lorentz frame of reference.
Only in this preferred frame will the zero point radiation be isotropic.

You mean there will be some anisotropy in the Lamb shift in hydrogen in a new kind of experiment? Now that would be interesting! Maybe some kind of angular correlation measurement in microwaves from hydrogen transtions where Lamb effect is detected would show it?

Apply a Lorentz boost to it and you end up with a distorted and non-isotropic distribution of radiation. I don't see how one avoids this conclusion by attenuating the zero point density function by a smooth function of energy or by any other means. If the energy per unit volume is finite the radiation density will change with Lorentz boosts and the resulting theory will not be Lorentz invariant. This will lead to experimental predictions. Charged particles will probably experience a viscous drag slowing down their relative velocity to the center of momentum of the radiation field, etc.

I should add there is one trivial exception to what I just said. That is when the cuttoff is at zero energy in which case the zero point field is totally eliminated and you just have a classical vacuum.

Well we do not want that. Also there is the issue of scale dependence.

Best wishes,

Mark

Gary, I am not sure how
Jack's G* and strong short-range gravity and the SU(3) color force
all fit together, but here is my guess:

1- Jack's G* and the A. I. Arbab stuff seem to have a G that
varies as the universe ages, sort of somehow connected
with the large number hypothesis

That depends on other things like whether Lenny Susskind's hologram idea is correct?
Let R(t) be the dimensionless FRW scale factor. The Hubble horizon distance is then
LpR(t). If Lenny's idea is correct then

Lp*(t) = Lp^2/3(LpR(t))^1/3 = LpR(t)^1/3

The hologram entropy of the Universe is then

S/kB = 4piR(t)^2/4Lp*(t)^2 = piR(t)^4/3

and the thermodynamic arrow of time is explained by the expansion of the Universe.

However, the large scale structure of Universe is still given by Newton's G, which may increase only on small scales ~ 1 fermi.

My /\zpf field gives an effective G* >> Newton's G only on small scales because

(Newton's G)(stuff effective mass density)(1 + 3w(stuff)) ----> c^2/\zpf for ZPF (of all quantum fields)

In particular, if the bare electron is a Bohm hidden variable thin spherical shell of charge e of radius 10^-13 cm, spinning like a gyro with hbar/2, with a repulsive self-Casimir force then /\zpf ~ (10^-15 cm)^-2 dynamically stabilizes it as a micro-geon. Note that 10^-15 cm = 10^-17 meters ~ 100 Gev ~ mass of W boson.

2 - strong short-range gravity (in my model, and in some of
Jack's discussions) may not vary with the age of the universe,
but only becomes strong at short distances, as a near-field
phenomenon like near-field electromagnetism, which is well-known
and experimentally verified and useful and does NOT obey the
1/r^2 law that applies to far-field electromagnetic radiation

4 - the SU(3) color force, in my view, is something else again,
and involves SU(3) gluons - its short-range character is
due to how the SU(3) color force works, and is not directly
related to why the strong short-range gravity is short-range.

I like local gauge invariance to the max. All the dynamical fields are compensating fields of all symmetry groups both space-time and internal. Do the internal groups mean extra space dimensions? Can the conformal group in 4D explain the internal groups? etc. I don't know.

------------------------------

Since my model uses mostly 2 and not 1,
and since Arbab's astro-ph/9811422 seems to me to be about 1,
I don't have much to say about it.

As to Arbab's newer paper gr-qc/0406055, he says
"... we have found that for every bound system
(nucleus, atom, star, galaxy, the whole universe)
there is a characteristic Planck constant ...",
and I strongly feel that nuclei and atoms and planets
and stars and galaxies etc do NOT each have their
own different Planck constant, so I don't have any
further comment here on that paper.

Tony

I also sense intuitively that Arbab's stuff is not correct, but I have not studied it.

To me, the Beck and Mackey paper at
http://arxiv.org/abs/astro-ph/0406504
has some very interesting statements:
"... the zero-point term has proved important in explaining
X-ray scattering in solids [4];
understanding of the Lamb shift ... in hydrogen [5, 6];
predicting the Casimir eect [7, 8];
understanding the origin of Van der Waals forces [7];
interpretation of the Aharonov-Bohm effect [9, 10];
explaining Compton scattering [5];
and

[11, 12, 13, 14]. It is this latter effect that concerns us here.
...

It seems to me that Beck and Mackey are saying that you can see
zpf in Josephson junction experiments, which have been done up to
about the frequency 6 x 10^11 Hz or about 4 x 10^-3 eV,
and
that the observed zpf corresponds to a dark energy density
of about 0.062 GeV/m^3
and
that if there is no change in the equation (i.e., no cut-off)
with increasing frequency then the zpf would exceed the
cosmologically observed dark energy (3.9 ± 0.4) GeV/m^3
corresponding to /\_DE = 0.73
and
the energy range where a change/cut-off is neccessary to
avoid DE exceeding about 4 GeV/m^3 is about 10^-2 eV
which is the energy range of neutrinos.

All this makes good sense to me in light of the statement
by Beck and Mackey
"... It is likely that the Josephson junction experiment only
measures the photonic part of the vacuum fluctuations,
since this experiment is purely based on electromagnetic
interaction. ...".

What is probably going on (in my opinion) is that you need
to have ALL the forces (gravity, color, weak, and QED) to get
cancellations that give a cosmological constant near zero
(instead of something like 10^120),
and
when you get energetic enough to introduce neutrinos,
you are effectively bringing in the weak force that is
felt by the neutrino
so that
you begin to change the equation (or introduce a cut-off)
at that energy
and
since
the cut-off is due to introduction of weak force effects
(and probably NOT a simple hard-line energy/frequency cut-off,
which could violate Lorentz symmetry)
it probably is a cut-off of the type cited by Lubos Motl
as preserving Lorentz symmetry.

As you go to higher and higher energies, you introduce
more and more forces, etc, and in the high-energy limit
(in my model in particular) the cosmological constant
terms all cancel out to zero.

The fact that we "see" a non-zero cosmological constant
in our universe may be related to the fact that our universe
has cooled down a lot and is in a QED regime in which its
characteristic zpf does not have a lot of components from
the other forces (this is something that I am thinking out
loud about, so it might not be right, but maybe it is).

Thanks, who wrote it? What's the reference to Bulgaria 1988 about?
The point is that the vacuum coherence is dynamical and can wobble around /\zpf = 0 causing an mini explosion of the "charge cluster." We are playing here with cosmic dynamite. This /\zpf field is the ultimate stuff of Super Cosmos. In one form it is dark energy, in another form it is dark matter. It stabilizes the spatially extended electron - hence J.P. Vigier's "tight atomic states" (Maric et-al in Belgrade), it explains the galactic halo, the absence of dark matter particles, the formation of galaxies, the universal Regge slope of hadrons, and its key parameter is the "quantum of area." /\zpf is what vibrates to make "strings."

---------------------------------------------------------------------


All of the things your mention, except 4,
do NOT involve any experiment done by humans to CONTROL the energy.
They only EXPLAIN PHENOMENA AS THEY EXIST IN NATURE WITHOUT
INTERACTION OR CONTROL BY HUMANS.

Yes, but they represent an important advance in basic physics IF I have not made
a stupid error or errors - always possible. Or if I simply have the wrong qualitative
conception of the deep structure of reality like I think Hal Puthoff has in both his
RANDOM ZPF origin of inertia and his PV model of gravity. Like Kerry and Bush there
is a clear difference between our physics ideas.

Now as to CONTROL. The good evidence for the reality of flying saucers is given on
the NIDS Website http://www.nidsci.org/ , so I take that as a FACT.

What you ask is not really what a theorist does. It's like asking Einstein for a detailed blueprint
of a nuclear reactor in 1905 right before he published E = mc^2. Nevertheless, I do have a general idea how THEY make the saucers fly and the math for that is in

http://qedcorp.com/destiny/Podkletnov.pdf

More is on the way. What is important is that my ideas for the "vacuum propeller" are part of the above grand scheme on the nature of reality and involve the explanation of the cosmological constant problem and other hitherto unsolved basic problems in physical understanding. Once others start thinking seriously about what I have wrought here - technological implementations will be rather direct. Meantime no one really has grasped what I am saying in any detail. They simply do not want to hear it as yet. It's a long upward battle to get the Pundits to pay attention -- but I am working on it. As Romulus and Remos will tell you, Rome was not built in a day! :-)

Ken Shoulders EVOs are quite close to proof of principle.


They have only the level of utility as Gamov's observation
that fusion could be the source of solar energy
has for building a hydrogen bomb,
i.e., they are a way of describing natural phenomena,
but
they are NOT YET a way of CONTROLLING the underlying energy flow.

Again I say heads up, look to the sky. There we see proof of principle and have been seeing it for 50 years.

YOU MUST SHOW A PROOF-OF-PRINCIPLE EXPERIMENT TO DEMONSTRATE
HUMAN CONTROL IN ORDER TO CLAIM THAT YOU HAVE A USEFUL MODEL
OF HOW UFOs WORK. That is what I have not yet seen,
and would like to see.

Well I have been working alone on this problem. First I have had to solve the cosmological constant problem to my satisfaction. I first had to understand the real nature of dark energy and dark matter and how together they make a vacuum propeller in terms of Hermann Bondi's "negative matter propeller" with a "reverse Doppler effect" as allegedly seen by Bruce Cornet of NIDS. I only understood the dark energy/matter from vacuum coherence at beginning of 2002! So, this is good progress - a very big bang for a very small buck as these things go. I have been trying to get Hal Puthoff off his hobby horse to help me with this problem. Ken Shoulders, Hal's key experimental collaborator for many years back to NSA days in DC, has crossed over to my side on this and Ken is trying to get Hal to hop on my bandwagon - at least to shoot down my ideas as I have shot down his - quid pro quo. http://qedcorp.com/destiny/ExoticVacuumObjects.pdf

http://qedcorp.com/destiny/GR17.pdf


Also,
I have no problem with you saying things that indicate
that "... string theorists like Lenny Susskind and Ed Witten
and the loop quantum gravity people like Ashtekar and Baez to
pass a similar test of not being "not even wrong" ..."
but
I do have a problem with your statement that you
"... have explained many observations that cannot be
explained any other way ..."
because my model
(see my web site at http://www.innerx.net/personal/tsmith/TShome.html )
can not only do those things, it can also calculate the WMAP ratios
presently observed (which you indicated in correspondence that
your model cannot do) and can also calculate particle masses
and force strengths and K-M parameters.

Yes, maybe. I cannot understand your ideas here. I have been too busy with my own, which are mathematically much simpler and more direct. That's why I have suggested you work with Saul-Paul Sirag and Carlos Castro to make your basic ideas more understandable. My basic ideas are very mainstream and battle-tested. I simply use Einstein's text book GR, text book QM and text book ideas from soft condensed matter physics on the topological defects in macro-quantum order parameters etc. I also need Bohm's pilot wave-hidden variable theory. My math is little more than high school level, except for basic ideas of group theory and most importantly local gauge invariance and Hagen Kleinert's elastic world crystal lattice formulation of GR's tensor calculus. My BIG INSIGHT is replacing h/m quantum of vorticity in superfluids with quantum of area Lp*^2 in supersolids, which gives hologram picture and Hawking-Bekenstein bits automatically BTW.


I should note your model does have some points of similarity to mine
because some of its features are based on some of your ideas,
which I have tried to explicitly credit on my web site,
but there are some major differences, so they really are distinct
models.

I got idea of locally gauging 15 parameter conformal group basically from you. Also discussion with you clarified how w = -1 geons with positive quantum pressure simulates CDM with w ~ 0 as explanation of Omega(DM) ~ 0.23.

I should also note that, like you, I have not yet written up
a proof-of-principle experiment such as I would like to see,
so my model is no better than yours in that regard,
but as of now it is as good and is in fact "another way" to
explain 1, 2, 3 etc.

Explain cosmological constant.


As to 4 - Ken Shoulder's charge clusters,
maybe they are produced by humans, but I have not yet seen
how they are useful for energy production or proof.

You need to talk to Ken. He has lots of evidence.

You described the clusters in this way:
------------------
"... A typical EVO has r ~ 10^-4 cm, N = 10^11.
Use the hydrogen atom as the basis of comparison
where r ~ 10^-8 cm and N = 1 with self-electrical force ~ 10^+16
compared to the EVO self-electrical force 10^22x10^8 = 10^30
in these relative dimensionless units.
That is,
the self-electrical force at the surface of the typical EVO assumed
to be in a spherical thin shell is ~ 10^14 stronger than
the electrical force on the atomic electron in the ground state
of the hydrogen atom.
Next consider a single electron as a shell of charge e at the
classical electron radius 10^-13cm. The relative self-electric
force is then 10^+26.
Therefore,
the electrical force of the typical mid-range EVO is only
about 10^4 larger than that on a single electron.
The effective G* induced by the zero point energy core needed
to stabilize a single spatially extended electron is ~ 10^40G.
That is the effective Planck length Lp* in the interior of a
single electron is ~ 10^-13 cm. The effective Planck length
in the interior of a typical EVO is therefore ~ 10^-11 cm ~ h/mc
(a curious coincidence) since G* ~ Lp^*2. That is the ├ČEddington
numberî G*/G ~ 10^44 to stabilize the typical EVO. Note in this
thin shell model the uniform zero point energy density core actually
has negative pressure to give a springy positive potential self-energy
that scales as r^5 whose force slope is opposite to the positive
Coulomb potential self-energy that scales as 1/r. ...".

I have a new calculation on that, which will be in the GR17 paper. I think they are both consistent with
each other, but I am still working on it.


-------------------------
and, after reading that, about a month ago,
I wrote to you asking how your analysis of the clusters might or
might not apply to ball lightning,
but I have not received a reply. In case you trashed my message,
I am attaching a copy of it below my signature.

I am too busy with other things. However, ball lightning is probably a good association.

electrons -> charge clusters -> ball lightning as we ascend the great chain of being and becoming ... a kind of scale invariance perhaps.


Basically, it is a question about how your model behaves
if you scale up the Ken Shoulders charge clusters,
and I think that it is something that should be evaluated
if clusters are to be used in your model for UFOs or star gates.

Jack,
your recent message about EVO with r = 10^-4 cm, and N = 10^11
started me thinking about Ball Lightning,
so I tried to rewrite your message with the idea
that N is proportional to area r^2.

If you have a chance to look at the stuff,
please let me know what you think.


------------------------------------------------------

A typical Ball Lightning has r ~ 10 cm, N = 10^21.

Use the hydrogen atom as the basis of comparison
where r ~ 10^-8 cm and N = 1
with self-electrical force ~ 10^+16
compared to
the Ball Lightning self-electrical force 10^42 x 10^-2 = 10^40
in these relative dimensionless units.

That is,
the self-electrical force at the
surface of the Ball Lightning assumed to be in a spherical thin shell
is ~ 10^24 stronger than the electrical force on
the atomic electron in the ground state of the hydrogen atom.

Next consider a single electron as a shell of charge e
at the classical electron radius 10^-13cm.
The relative self-electric force is then 10^+26.

Therefore,
the electrical force of the Ball Lightning is
about 10^14 larger than that on a single electron.

The effective G* induced by the zero point energy core needed
to stabilize a single spatially extended electron is ~ 10^40 G.

That is
the effective Planck length Lp* in
the interior of a single electron is ~ 10^-13 cm.

The effective Planck length in the interior of the Ball Lightning
is therefore ~ 10^-6 cm since G* ~ Lp^*2.

---------------------------------------------------


A big (football field) Ball Lightning has r ~ 10^4 cm, N = 10^27.

Use the hydrogen atom as the basis of comparison
where r ~ 10^-8 cm and N = 1
with self-electrical force ~ 10^+16
compared to
big Ball Lightning self-electrical force 10^54 x 10^-8 = 10^46
in these relative dimensionless units.

That is,
the self-electrical force at the
surface of big Ball Lightning assumed to be in a spherical thin shell
is ~ 10^30 stronger than the electrical force on
the atomic electron in the ground state of the hydrogen atom.

Next consider a single electron as a shell of charge e
at the classical electron radius 10^-13 cm.
The relative self-electric force is then 10^+26.

Therefore,
the electrical force of big Ball Lightning is
about 10^20 larger than that on a single electron.

The effective G* induced by the zero point energy core needed
to stabilize a single spatially extended electron is ~ 10^40 G.

That is
the effective Planck length Lp* in
the interior of a single electron is ~ 10^-13 cm.

The effective Planck length in the interior of big Ball Lightning
is therefore ~ 10^-3 cm since G* ~ Lp^*2.

This is not really accurate. I have explained many observations that cannot be explained any other way such as (not a complete list)

1. Why the cosmological constant is so small. The discrepancy is 122 powers of ten!

As for proof of concept - VERY SIMPLE! The Flying Saucers! Heads up! The Truth is Out There.

So far so good.

I am investigating whether I can use the generic Alcubierre warp drive metric in the ADM form with my exotic vacuum field equation

Guv + /\zpfguv = 0

These are 10 independent nonlinear partial differential equations that are constraints on the form function f and its first and second order partial derivatives.

However, we need the form function f and its first and second order partial derivatives on a spacelike surface. This gives exactly 10 free functions to fit the 10 constraints. So we are neither under or over determined! That's a good sign. Of course, all of this is a function of the vacuum coherence since the Bohm-Aharonov-Josephson effect here is

/\zpf(induced) = (Quantum of Area)^-1[(Overlap Volume)(number density of control condensate)^1/2(number density of vacuum condensate)Cos(Relative Phase between Control and Vacuum Condensates)

Visser's and Lobo's cautionary remarks on the impassible gap between theory and technology are not correct because they are not using the relevant exotic vacuum equation, but are still thinking of brute force Tuv sources! It's a whole new ball game now. We know they are wrong from the factual observations of flying saucers that have already rendered our air and space defence impotent and obsolete by violating our nuclear weapons base air space with impunity for the last 50 years - not a very well kept secret!

Yeah, thanks. This looks interesting and relevant to a lot of problems I am working on. Remember, the double-well potential plays a key role in my theory of emergence of consciousness from the hydrophobically caged electrons inside the micro-tubules. Also the Mexican Hat (Sombrero) Potential for vacuum coherence is a kind of double well in abstract 3 space if we make it vibrate stochastically with transient bumps and ripples around the Goldstone phase direction along the circular rim as well as up the Higgs slope.

V(Mexican Sombrero) = a|Vacuum Coherence|^2 + b|Vacuum Coherence|^4

Vacuum Coherence = (Higgs Intensity)^1/2 e^i(Goldstone Phase)

a < 0, b > 0

Memorandum for the historical record on the emergence of metric engineering concepts.

Dear Marc

Mine is the only one of your proposals coming in which has even a ghost of a chance of working as practical metric engineering because:

It only uses battle-tested mainstream physics, i.e. Einstein's GR, quantum theory, condensed matter physics of macro-quantum coherent order parameters described by P.W. Anderson as "More is different" that includes Andrei Sakharov's "metric elasticity" 1967 for emergent gravity as "generalized phase rigidity" of the local macro-quantum vacuum coherence order parameter. Also, unlike ALL of your proposals coming in, mine has a seamless connection with the major problems in physics today e.g. the dark energy/cosmological constant problem, the renormalization problem in quantum field theory (e.g. stability of electron under its self-charge), stability of galaxy, universal Regge slope of hadronic resonances, Ken Shoulders' "charge clusters." Dare I also mention the heretical 3 letter word "UFO"? No, I guess not. :-)

Hal Puthoff's competing program to mine, i.e. the "PV" dielectric analogy approach to GR is much further out of the mainstream and so far his published results disagree with actual empirical data. Hal tries to avoid standard tensor calculus with metrics, consequently he has yet to publish a model with a rotating source, and he has yet to show how his theory based on a special action principle can give a warp drive in the sense of Alcubierre and the recent paper by Visser et-al http://www.arxiv.org/PS_cache/gr-qc/pdf/0406/0406083.pdf
Also Hal has yet to show how an applied electromagnetic Fuv field can change his vacuum K function by a large enough amount to make a practical difference for actual metric engineering. He cannot do it using orthodox QED, the effect is too small.

Note that Visser and Lobo also make reference to dark energy in the context of a warp drive - probably first in a mainstream paper, but my two books from end of 2002 already have that idea clearly spelled out. Visser also bends over backwards to caution the reader not to get too enthusiastic about imminent technological applications since the "fact" of UFOs is denied otherwise he could not publish his paper - quite obviously.

One important technical point on Visser's latest paper on warp drive

He uses only

Guv = (8piG/c^4)Tuv

Not the equation I use which is

Guv + /\zpfguv = (8piG/c^4)Tuv

That I approximate as the pure exotic vacuum equation

Guv + /\zpfguv ~ 0

assuming G/c^4 ~ 10^-33 cm/10^19Gev

so that, with my subsidiary vacuum coherence equations

/\zpfguv >> (8piG/c^4)Tuv

Is the "metric engineering regime" of practical interest with

/\zpf controlled by an electromagnetic Au potential in a Bohm-Aharonov- Josephson gauge covariant "weak link" in the relative phase between a control macro-quantum coherent field and the vacuum coherence of virtual electron-positron pairs.

Ken Shoulders EVO data http://qedcorp.com/destiny/ExotcVacuumObjects.pdf seem to confirm this basic idea, as well as the absence of dark matter particles after 14 years of trying with only false alarms.

We review our recent work towards quantum communication in a solid-
state environment with qubits carried by electron spins. We propose
three schemes to produce spin-entangled electrons, where the
required separation of the partner electrons is achieved via Coulomb
interaction. The non-product spinstates originate either from the
Cooper pairs found in a superconductor, or in the ground state of a
quantum dot with an even number of electrons. In a second stage, we
show how spin-entanglement carried by a singlet can be detected in a
beam-splitter geometry by an increased (bunching) or decreased
(antibunching) noise signal. We also discuss how a local spin-orbit
interaction can be used to provide a continuous modulation of the
noise as a signature of entanglement. Finally, we review how one can
use a quantum dot as a spin-filter, a spin-memory read-out, a probe
for single-spin decoherence and, ultimately, a single-spin
measurement apparatus.

Yes, this looks good. A step in the right direction. I thought of qualitative idea of spintronics for quantum computing quite independently in late 1970's and it was very much part of Harold Chipman's plan in 1984 as shown in documents in "Destiny Matrix." It's actually an obvious idea, but it took awhile to become "mainstream" and "respectable."

Note, that spintronics may well involve the Soviet torsion fields, if Nature allows them. Nature should allow them since they have the same origin as Einstein's gravity, i.e. local gauge invariance principle applied to the space-time symmetries of the conformal group. This demands additional gauge force fields, i.e.

1. Einstein's 1916 gravity from locally gauging the 4-parameter translation group infinitesimally generated by total Energy-Momentum Pu

2. Soviet (Shipov/Akimov) torsion fields from locally gauging the 6-parameter Lorentz group infinitesimally generated by 3 total angular momenta J = L + S for space-space rotations and 3 Lorentz boosts for mixed space-time rotations.

3. A local gauge force field from the 4 special conformal transformations to uniformly accelerated "hyperbolic" special relativistic rocket motion.

4. A local gauge force field from 1 dilation, which seems to be linked to Bohm's quantum potential.

guv(x) ---> g'uv(x) = D(x)guv(x)

The idea here is simple. Use the local gauge invariance principle for ALL continuous symmetries both internal and space-time.

The issue of the strength of the coupling constants - generally not constants at all, but scale-dependent variables is largely an empirical matter. See "renormalization group flows to fixed points."


1. Introduction

The goal of the growing field of spintronics [1, 2] is to harness the
spin degree-of-freedom of the electron in a solid-state environment.
By going beyond the manipulation of the electron charge found in
standard electronics, one pursues the development of new devices
that use specifically the electron spin: for instance, magnetic read-
out heads for computer hard drives, single-spin memories, or spin
transistors [3, 4]. One ingredient is the injection and detection of
spin-polarized currents, which has now been studied experimentally
with various approaches [5, 6, 7]. A more ambitious step is to
consider quantum computation [8], for which it has been proposed to
use the electron spin as a qubit [9]. This naturally requires
coherent manipulation of the quantum spin-state, which is limited by
decoherence. The issue of electron spin decoherence in semiconductors
has found positive support from a number of experiments, which have
now demonstrated long decoherence times (exceeding 100 ns) for
electron spins in bulk n-doped GaAs, as well as coherent transport
of spins over distances up to 100 m [11]. In this work, we address
the most fundamental issues concerning the use of the electron spin
in quantum communication [10], the basic resource being Einstein-
Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) pairs [12]. Here the motivation stems from for
the desire to use the same physical qubit as the one used for
quantum computation [9], in order to have "on-chip" quantum
communication without transfers to photonic states. Secondly, these
e orts open the path towards experimental tests of quantum
non-locality with massive particles in the solid state (via
violation of Bell's inequality [13]).

....

5. Conclusion

We have proposed and theoretically analyzed devices which address a
number of milestones of quantum communication protocols with
electron spins in mesoscopic systems. For the creation of EPR-pairs,
we have proposed three di erent schemes for the preparation of spin-
singlet electron pairs, and their injection into solid-state quantum
channels. In the second part, we have discussed an interference
device able to distinguish, via noise measurement, the entangled
spin singlet from the spin triplet states. A local spin-orbit
interaction extends this proposal by allowing a continuously
variable noise signature, controllable by external gates.
Finally, we have shown how one can use single quantum dots as
fundamental tools for accessing quantum information stored as a
single spin. We have described a spin- lter, a spin-memory read-out,
and, finally, a device able to estimate the decoherence rate of a
single-spin in a quantum dot |a crucial parameter for the coherent
manipulation of the fundamental quantum system that is an electron
spin.

of the galaxy, the universal Regge slope, Ken Shoulders' charge

The Landscape at Davis

"I'm in Nothern California this week, and have been attending some of the talks at the conference at UC Davis celebrating Albert Schwarz's 70th birthday. The landscape at Davis is exceedingly flat, but this morning Lenny Susskind gave a remarkable talk with the title "Exploring the Landscape".

It was a pretty strange talk for a mathematical physics conference since it contained zero mathematics (and it's arguable whether there was any physics...). Susskind blamed Iz Singer for this, claiming that Singer told him he should talk about the landscape stuff since it was leading to a new mathematical field of "statistical topology". He began by holding up a copy of Steven Weinberg's "Dreams of a Final Theory" and reading a quote from it about the cosmological constant. He liked this so much he read the same quote a second time a little while later.

He then discussed some of the recent history of string theory, noting that for a long time string theorists were hoping for a mathematical silver bullet that would provide a more or less unique solution to the theory that looked like the real world. He announced that now the probability of this is less than 1 in 10^500.

Susskind then explained a bit about KKLT vacua, saying that his main reason for discussing them was to show how silly and inelegant they are. He compared them to a Rube Goldberg machine and called Shamit Kachru the "master Rube Goldberg architect".

The most dramatic part of Susskind's talk was something new: an attack on the idea of low-energy supersymmetry. He explained the standard fine-tuning argument for supersymmetry, but then indicated that he thought an anthropic argument made more sense. The reason the Higgs mass is so much smaller than the Planck mass is not supersymmetry, but instead because that small size is necessary for our existence. He said that the question of low-energy supersymmetry is something that Douglas's statistical analysis of vacua should address (Douglas will talk tomorrow), but his view is that low-energy supersymmetry will be very unlikely."

[Sarfatti Commentary: According to Lenny's world hologram idea, the effective Planck scale Lp* should be increasing as the universe expands with scale factor R(t) in units of length as

Lp*(t) = Lp^2/3R(t)^1/3

This means that time's arrow is tied to the expansion of the universe with the Hawking hologram entropy of the universe S(t) obeying

S(t)/k ~ R(t)^2/Lp*^2 ~ R(t)^4/3

On the other hand, the effective G* from

Lp*^2 = hG*/c^3

cannot operate on the large scale where we know G is Newton's.

Note that Lp*(now) ~ 1 fermi

This is very curious, making G* ~ 10^40G, which we can posit to act only on the scale of Lp*.

Note also that Lp** = Lp^2/3(c/Ho)^1/3 is also ~ 1 fermi

Einstein's cosmological constant is /\ ~ (Ho/c)^2

where

/\ = (Lp*)^-2[(Lp*^3|Vacuum Coherence|^2 - 1]

H = R(t)^-1dR(t)/dt

Lp* ~ R(t)^1/3

So we seem to get a differential equation in this model. However, Vacuum Coherence also has a dynamics. It has a covariant Landau-Ginzburg eq with a Mexican Hat Potential for spontaneous broken vacuum symmetry.

So the idea is still not coherent in my mind, but it seems to be pointing to something important.]

"In the question session, John Schwarz challenged him about this, claiming that there were other reasons to believe in low-energy supersymmetry, including the unification of coupling constants and the idea that dark matter is the lowest mass superpartner."

[Sarfatti Commentary: This is a wrong idea. Dark matter is exotic vacuum with positive zero point pressure. Dark matter detectors will never click in principle with the "Right Stuff" to explain Omega(DM) ~ 0.23. So far observation is on my side in this hard exact prediction. The Italian claims to contrary have proved wrong. So far, so good.]

"Susskind's response was that even though there were a couple reasons like those, there were many more that indicated problems with the idea of low-energy supersymmetry, including problems with too fast proton decay."

[Sarfatti Commentary: Susskind is on right track here.]

"It was pretty amazing to see someone challenging the supersymmetry orthodoxy. On the other hand, the whole program Susskind and others are pursuing is completely loony."

[Sarfatti Commentary: But is it loony enough to be true?]

"String theory predicts absolutely nothing, and instead of drawing the obvious conclusion that it is a useless idea, Susskind is trying to turn this failure into some perverse sort of virtue."

[Sarfatti Commentary: Indeed string theory has much less observational support than

1. Flying saucers

2. Parapsychology

3. Cold Fusion

It probably has as much observational support as does Ashtekar's non-perturbative background independent quantum gravity?

I do think however that all of the above have some interesting ideas and factual support that will survive - even sting theory, oh pardon me, I meant even string theory. ;-)]

Isn't Brian Greene a member of Professor Woit's Department? You mean the landscape is not elegant? Kidding aside, I think Lenny's work is not as bad as it is made out to be below. "Sting Theory" may be a more appropriate name after all? :-)

Lenny's holographic universe idea may turn out to be true. It is certainly very interesting.

The generalized uncertainty relation is also interesting

uncertainty in position ~ h/(uncertainty in momentum) + (quantum of area)(uncertainty in momentum)/h

is a good idea coming from black hole formation when too much energy is concentrated into too small a volume.

More Landscape Stream of Consciousness

It looks like particle theory has now degenerated to the point where its leading figures can't think of anything better to do than to write rambling articles with virtually no equations that reach no real conclusions. Last week was Lenny Susskind, tonight there's a new article by Michael Douglas.

His conclusion, such as it is, goes like this:

"If I had to bet at the moment, I would still bet that string theory favors the low scale, for the reasons outlined above, but it is not at all obvious that this is what will come out in the end.... We should keep in mind that 'favoring' one type of vacuum or mechanism over another is not a strong result, if both types of vacuums exist..."

So, maybe string theory "favors" a low supersymmetry-breaking scale, maybe not. As usual, not only can't it predict anything, it can't even predict the scale at which it can't predict anything. I really cannot understand why anyone thinks this kind of thing is science."


http://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit/blog/archives/000031.html

The stupendous Landscape of sting theory vacua

"At an early stage in the Los Alamos preprint archive it was split up into hep-th (for more formal or speculative work not directly relevant to experiment) and hep-ph (for "phenomenological" papers directly related to experiment). Susskind has just come out with his latest and now seems to feel that his ideas about the "Landscape" are directly of interest to experimenters and so belong in hep-ph.

The preprint is riddled with typos, for instance the third paragraph starts like this:

"During the last couple of years an entirely new paradigm has emerged from the ashes of a more traditional view of string theory. The basis of the new paradigm is the stupendous Landscape of sting [sic] theory vacua -- especially the non-supersymmetric vacua. These vacua appear to be so numerous that the word Discrtuum [sic] is used to describe the spectrum of possible values of the cosmological constant....."

You get the idea.

Some high points of the article:

1. "low energy supersymmetry - an ugly solution" to the naturalness problem. Now he tells us. From what I remember the "beauty of supersymmetry" has always been one argument made in its favor.

2. "the ashes of a more traditional view of string theory". It seems that the picture of the world according to string theory that has been heavily sold for the last twenty years has burned down to the ground.

3. The argument in his last paper, such as it was, was wrong. Now he's got a new one with a similar conclusion.

4. "... a prediction that supersymmetry will not be seen at the TEV scale seems warranted". OK, string theory is finally making a prediction.

5. "If it turns out that low energy supersymmetry is a feature of TEV physics, then we will have to conclude that other considerations outweigh the counting of vacua on the Landscape". So, even though string theory predicts no low energy supersymmetry, if it is found it doesn't mean string theory is wrong. Got it?"

WHAT IS THE UNIVERSE MADE OF?
The emergence of gravity and dark energy/matter from the cohering of zero point energy.

JACK SARFATTI
ISEP

Abstract

Ordinary matter made from real on-mass-shell lepto-quark fermions and gauge force bosons only accounts for approximately 4% of all the large-scale stuff of our universe, which may be one of a infinity of parallel universes in hyperspace that we call “Super Cosmos.” I propose that the remaining 96% of our universe consists of two forms of partially coherent exotic vacuum dominated by a condensate of bound virtual electron-positron pairs. Einstein’s gravity emerges from the variations in the macro-quantum coherent phase field of the condensate. This condensate is the inflation field in the large-scale cosmological limit. Both dark energy and dark matter are simply residual total zero point energy densities that emerge from the vacuum condensate’s intensity variations. Approximately 73% is anti-gravitating zero point “dark energy” density with equal and opposite negative pressure that is causing our universe to accelerate in its expansion rate. The remaining gravitating 23%, called “dark matter,” is also zero point energy density with equal and opposite positive pressure found concentrated in large-scale structures like the galactic halo that prevents our solar system from escaping into inter-galactic space. Astrophysical scale geon structures of w = -1 dark matter simulate w = 0 CDM in terms of their gravity lensing. The electron, as a Bohm "hidden variable" on the micro-scale for example, is a spatially extended structure whose repulsive self-electric charge, Casimir force and repulsive spin rotation are balanced by the strong short-range zero point energy induced gravity from its exotic vacuum core. The electron, and the quarks, shrink in size, up to a certain minimum, when hit with large momentum scattering transfers from strong space warping that makes their surface areas small compared to what they would be in flat space for a given radial distance. An experimental appendix by Ken Shoulders on "exotic vacuum objects" or "EVO" charged geons made from large numbers of electrons glued together by zero point energy is included. The zero point force holding as many as one hundred billion electrons together is not the QED Casimir force, which may even be repulsive, but is the entirely different strong short-range gravity force induced by the zero point energy by the entirely different process of Einstein's general relativity omitted from the flat space-time QED calculations. These EVOs show anomalous motions and energies that seem to be examples of Alcubierre's "warp drive" and "cold fusion" respectively.

I support intelligent debate on this topic of course. However, having attended two major APS meetings on the topic with Mike Turner, Saul Perlmutter talking at both, and I will also be at GR17 in Dublin, it is clear to me that you are fighting a hopeless rear guard action. In the course of doing so, you will be led to change your mind. Resistance is futile. I think Sean Carroll's attitude is the objective optimum one - the best Bayesean estimate. ;-)

Note best fit in latest Physics Today is a Big Rip Phantom Energy w ~ -1.31 (if I recall correctly) but it is ~ 1 standard deviation away from my hard prediction of w = -1 as an exact result. So we will see how new data affects this. Also recall my other hard prediction, no dark matter detectors will click with the right stuff that explains Omega(DM) ~ 0.23. That would be like Michelson-Morley showing the speed through aether - I mean once we remove curvature corrections from general relativity. There is some small discrepancy there as I recall, but it is my impression that it can be explained by GR?

"Hello Jack,

Thanks for your message --- enthusiastic message, I should say --- defending the inflationary Big Bang model. I, and my students as well, have now material for much discussion. Thanks, indeed. Ned Wright's web page is present in my own personal page for a long time now, I would like to mention. And I always recommend it for those interested
in cosmology. In any case, I added, after receiving your note on the "Errors" section, a special link for this particular section of Ned's page. What you, Sean Carroll, Mike Turner and followers, need to explain is

1- Why the "dark cake", Fig. 10 of Freedman and Turner (astro-ph/0308418), has only 0.5% that is actually observed? Remember, from the 4% of baryons,there are some 3.5% still dark, i.e., invisible, that is to say, we can't see, measure, whatever. Do they exist or perhaps should we wait a bit more?"

I do not claim to be an expert in data analysis. That's Turner's et-al's job. I seem to recall Turner saying that was mostly cold hydrogen gas? What is important however is the 96%!


"2- Take w=-1."

That's what my theory says it must be - both dark energy and dark matter. However globs of w = -1 dark matter will look like w = 0 CDM from far away in terms of gravity lensing. This is a crucial test of my theory BTW. No dark matter particles! We, I mean Ken Shoulders, seem to be seeing this phenomena on lab scale!
http://qedcorp.com/destiny/ExoticVacuumObjects.pdf

"What do you do with the so-called 'cosmological constantproblem'?"

I have solved it! Vacuum coherence explains it. The dominant contribution to Vacuum Coherence is a condensate of virtual electron-positron pairs bound together by virtual photons all occupying the same center of mass bound pair state. The phase variations in this macro-quantum occupied single particle state give Einstein's metric guv field.

The incoherent estimate of Einstein's cosmological constant /\ is ~ 1/Lp^2

My theory says that the coherent value of the cosmological constant is

/\ = Lp^-2[Lp^3|Vacuum Coherence|^2 - 1]

The "equilibrium" is at /\ = 0 where the Vacuum Coherence is the Planck density.

Vacuum Coherence obeys a covariant Landau Ginzburg eq. that must be solved self-consistently with Einstein's eq

Guv + /\guv = (8piG/c^4)Tuv


"You know, the value implied by the inflationary BB model makes our universe 10 to the minus 10 second old and 3 cm large, which is definitely, and frankly, not observed."

Again this is no longer a problem - it is solved conceptually.


"3- Why not make science with a character, I mean, following strictly "scientific method" and listening to what Nature presents and we can see?"

This is polemics - not a valid objection. It is obvious to my mind, that the preponderance of evidence is on the side of mainstream precision cosmology with dark energy now that I have explained the cosmological constant paradox as a simple vacuum coherence effect analogous to the two-fluid model of superfluids. Einstein's gravity emerges as a simple ODLRO effect with general coordinate transformations as derivative from local phase transformations on the vacuum coherence field. Curvature and torsion are simply local compensating gauge fields from stringy "vortex" singular lines in the phase of the vacuum coherence where the intensity of the vacuum coherent scalar field(s) drop to zero. Space-time physics is local because of the locality of the ODLRO vacuum coherence.

"Of course, you may turn out to be right in the end, BUT --- sorry fot the capitals --- you are not with all that just now. So, it is perfectly normal that others have their chance also. That's the point.

Let's keep the censorship issue distinct from the physics content. I completely support your complaint of censorship and black listing of physicists. Censorship prevents the kind of debate we are having here. I personally agree with Sean Carroll that funding of the kind of alternative you profess is a bad bet. Up until ~ 2003 you may have had a valid case there, but no longer. The kind of cosmology you profess is dead in the water and will lose support rapidly with all the new data coming in. It's time to move on. The same is true for the two eccentric theories Hal Puthoff has been promoting in the media i.e. PV theory of gravity and random EM ZPF origin of inertia of lepto-quarks, which BTW cannot explain the rest mass of the neutrinos. Both gravity and inertia are like Siamese Twins. They BOTH come from vacuum coherence (e.g. Higgs mechanism). You cannot have real matter Omega ~ 0.04 without vacuum coherence. All you have then is pre-inflation false globally flat vacuum. Vacuum coherence is also the inflation scalar field(s).

The point here is that there is a preponderance of evidence from independent sources for the basic picture that essentially all the stuff of the universe is, at its core, exotic vacuum zero point energy density including Omega (atoms, radiation etc) ~ 0.04. Mundane explanations for anomalous dimming of Type 1a supernovae have been clearly eliminated observationally by the evidence. There will be more evidence. The ideas in the May 22, 2004 are not contenders to the objective mind without an ax to grind or a hobby horse to ride - assuming one can find such a mind? ;-)


Not only that, but this large scale picture solves unsolved basic problems of the particle physics,

I. Is the electron (lepto-quark) a point particle? NO.

Hence no more need for infinite renormalizations and no more need perhaps for using distributions and the need for regularization that plays such a big role in say Ashtekar's program of spin foams and weaves to make smooth space-time.

II. What stabilizes the spatially extended electron (perhaps with "tight atomic states" J.P. Vigier)?
Zero point energy pressure. These are the Lorentz-Abraham-Becker stresses.

III. Why does the electron (and the quark) appear to shrink from 10^-11 cm at low energy imaging to ~ 10^-17 cm at high energy imaging? Strong space-warp from the exotic vacuum zero point energy core.

IV. Why Regge universal slope for hadronic resonances? Kerr-Newman "micro-geon" (e.g. A. Burinskii) solution in strong short-range gravity induced in the zero point exotic vacuum core.

Which interpretation of quantum theory is needed? Bohm's.

Does the quantum wave describe individual particles or only statistical ensembles? Individual particles.

Why does our solar system not escape into inter-galactic space? For the same reason that the electric charge on a single electron does not explode! i.e. the pressure from w = -1 zero point energy cores.

Note that the present "best fit" for dark energy is not w = -1, however, I say that more data will show w = -1. I also say that dark matter detectors will never "click" with The Right Stuff. These are two crucial tests that will falsify my theory.

Finally, look to the skies. Heads up. What do you see "Out There" Michael? How do they fly? Dark energy that's how.

Therefore, I have a clear story to tell that most people can understand compared to the alternatives. Also my story is clearly falsifiable in Karl Popper's sense.


....
Personally, I have no strong opinion on the matter of dark matter, but if
you feel there is 'REAL SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE', perhaps you could share what
you think that is - i.e. what specific data do you find so persuasive?

Michael

http://arxiv.org/abs/astro-ph/0308418 Here is the evidence. It is more than satisfactory to my mind. Not only that, it explains what Hal Puthoff has been attempting to explain for at least 30 years.

BTW you need to distinguish "dark energy" from "dark matter" though I think they are essentially the same, i.e. net zero point energy density of negative and positive pressure respectively modulated by variable partial vacuum coherence, I am alone in that opinion. All of The Pundits think dark matter consists of real on-mass-shell particles whizzing around in space. I say that is a mistake. Dark matter, like dark energy, is a form of exotic quantum vacuum that is essentially 100% of all the stuff of the Universe. Even ordinary matter made from spatially-extended lepto-quarks (Bohm's hidden variables) is exotic vacuum quantum pressure gluing together shells of charge as I show in a recent paper with Ken Shoulders on "charge clusters" http://qedcorp.com/destiny/ExoticVacuumObjects.pdf still under construction. Note that Ken worked with Hal on this same problem for many years and has now obviously voted with his feet! The point here is that Hal has never written down the correct zero point energy/gravity relationship, which in the simplest Newtonian limit of Einstein's GR is the static Poisson equation, sans factors of pi

Laplacian of Gravity Potential Energy Per Unit Test Mass of Exotic Vacuum ~ c^2/\zpf

/\zpf = (Quantum of Area)^-1[(Quantum of Area)^3/2|Vacuum Coherence|^2 - 1]

Vacuum Coherence obeys a generally covariant Landau-Ginzburg equation with a Mexican Hat Potential.

Jack: OK so we seem to agree on that. Remember the films "War of the Worlds," "Independence Day" and "Star Troopers" - not "Close Encounters" and "ET" - we need to be prepared for both scenarios.

Dan: Obviously, then, they are not here to further our agenda, so they must have
their own. If the ETs are our adversaries, should we not be attempting to
ascertain their intentions?

Jack: Not my job. I am doing my job.

Dan; Is that not the primary function of any
military intelligence: know thine enemy?

Jack: I have a full plate. I am not a one-man Army! Remember I was recruited in 1953 if not before! This has been a 50 year mission! You got drafted in 1975. You're in The Army Now!

Dan: Here we start running into contradictions, not just on the part of Jack, but
across the board of UFO commentators.

Jack: Are you really naive or simply pretending. BTW Read "Battle Ready" by Tony Zinni & Tom Clancy. Zinni is VERY SHARP! He should run CIA! Life is full of contradictions. It's not like a theorem from Euclid's geometry.

Dan: It would seem that humanity has experienced unprecedented advances on the
technological front in approximately the same time frame that the ET
presence has become generally known. In fact it is our advanced sensing and
communications technology that has made us more aware of their presence than
ever before.

Jack: In fact some factions of ET are assisting us http://stardrive.org/cartoon/spectra.html, others are making war on us. It's a BIG MULTIVERSE Out There Dan! This is like Cornell USAF ROTC and Civil Air Patrol - we are making war game plans for every possible CONTACT scenario.

Dan: The ETs ought to be concerned. Our growing knowledge of their presence is
rapidly turning us into a tribe of wannabe Prometheans. They steal our DNA,
we steal their fire. Jack is our very own Prometheus incarnate.

Jack: You got that part exactly right Bhubba. You ain't as dumb as you pretend.

Dan: It would seem that we are forcing a showdown, and sooner rather that later:
shades of Independence Day and War of the Worlds!

Jack: Hey Dan, you know I did not scroll down to this when I wrote the above!

Dan: In both of these Hollywood extravaganzas, our victory over the Aliens was as
low tech as it was improbable. Step aside Jeff Goldblum, we now have Jack Sarfatti at the helm. With Jack
we are going to beat the Aliens at their own game.

Jack: That's exactly right! Now you are talking. That's The Story, That's The Script!

Dan: We will out fly them and
out shoot them. Doesn't it make you want to feel sorry for them? Poor
little Grays, they barely stand a chance, not against our Patriotic Hero cum
Laude. Wait 'til Hollywood gets hold of the Real Stuff! Am I being sarcastic here? Certainly Jack would not think so. He is deadly serious. If not he is putting on a good show of it.

Jack: I am serious and also not serious. Like Reagan, I keep my sense of humor.

Dan: Look, Hollywood just wants to make a buck, and, for that matter, so does
Jack, the last time I checked. Neither one is being paid to do counter
intelligence.

Jack: Huh? Your Intelligence is faulty, e.g. Hal Puthoff says he is not being funded by Paul Murad at DIA.

Dan:But maybe there is something serious going on here. And maybe it is not
just warm and fuzzy either. If the ETs came here to facilitate our
spiritual advancement, it would seem that they are doing a rather poor job
of it. There are many channeled communications to tells us that we must
save our Planet. They are long on warnings, but short on solutions.

Jack: Your Eschaton is The Final Solution! :-)

Dan: The New Age movement seems to have lost its steam, giving way to soccer moms in
SUVs. We are closer to the brink of an all out religious war than we have
been in the last 800 years.

Jack: Correct. GWB is Godfroi De Boulloin and this is a replay of The First Crusade - this time to Baghdad.

Dan: Yes, Jack is way ahead of the curve on understanding how they got here, just
ask him. He is very curious about their means. He is curiously incurious
about their ends.


Jack: I am curious yellow about that. However, I do not waste my time on idle pursuits. I do my job and I eat me spinich.

Dan: He seems to know all about the teleology, but does he give a hoot about the
Telos? Am I the only one sensing a blind spot here? Am I the only one who wants to
do something about it?

Jack: I want to build saucers and star gates not worry how many ET Invaders can jump out of a star gate on Bob Bigelow's Ranch in Utah in one second. Let Bigelow's Boys worry about that one.
