Is the warp drive opening up a portal (as tiny it may be) to the spiritual realm? Or the evil spirits simply don't want me messing with that stuff?
I believe these evil spirits that I encountered later on and the alien that visited me during 1996 are under the same group. They kept showing up in my nightmares and both induce exactly the same feelings when they manifest.

Personally, I believe that regardless of what type of drive this is technically, the inventor should be able to label it with any name they desired. Consider the names that the government has given to projects and the terms used by the PR dept. to describe it.
My point is that I'm not going to worry about what an inventor calls his invention as long as it does what is claimed it can do.
The paranormal stuff could be unrelated, it's hard to say given the information available, but you could be sensitive to the paranormal anyway.
All my photos and videos are in my old home computer thousands of miles away...
Before anyone bubbles up with excitement, don't have unreasonable expectations yet!!!
This device will not enter high warp and beat the speed of light!! It could not even lift itself off the table!!
What it does at the moment is create a very weak warp field. You can only see it produce thrust if put it on a very sensitive weighing scale (milligram class weighing scales).
I already have a theoretical solution on how to dramatically boost the warp field but the technology required is not for the average joe. You'll need some access to university/industrial-grade prototyping equipment. But the capacity to make such device is already here....
...It could probably be simplified but I don't have time for that atm.. The best bet is to use a powerful source of gamma radiation (matter/antimatter) or a micro nuke for direct ionization and creation of a very strong warp field.
- If arcing is persistent, increase length of design and according to proportion or reduce voltage. I don't have the prototype with me, so you'll have to make do!
- If thrust is very low, reduce size or increase voltage.
- You cannot use Van De Graaff generators or Wimshurst generators due to low power output. You must use high voltage sources that uses a flyback transformer (used in old CRT monitors). You can google how to convert an old CRT monitor to a high voltage power supply "safely"
Please make sure you read the disclaimer again.
And so I don't give you unrealistic expectation:
- the warp engine isn't powerful enough to carry it's own weight - it will not

Btw. if this is all you have, you have NOT, I repeat NOT, created a warp drive....
This is not even a proper idea of a warp drive, maybe you should even read what a warp drive is.

Hello! I am giving you the benefit of the doubt because you seem sincere, and I know from my own personal experiences that high strangeness abounds when there are aliens afoot.
I hope I am correct in what you are truly asking here - are you being monitored because of what you're doing, or is what you're doing messing with the fabric of our space/time and allowing things to enter through a wormhole?
I don't think your warp drive allowed them to come in - I think they were already here, and said "Holy Crap! That one's trying to make a warp drive!" and commenced to watching you a bit more closely.
I for one say keep going! Stay public and keep lots of people in the loop and keep trying, but please be careful and don't hurt yourself or all of us!
And keep in mind that if they are truly monitoring your work - you just might be on to something.

My question is, why did you post this when you didn't have the pictures and videos to back it up? You could have saved yourself from the ridicule just by waiting until you got those pictures at least.

When I read your OP I first thought what a ridiculous post.
But I have to give you kudos that you actually posted the warp-drive design, and this is actually sort-of interesting.
Question: What gave you the idea to build it exactly like this? Eg. the shape of the panels etc.?

They are called Vulcans. Be careful because the Borg will be showing up soon.

I feel like they want me to stop.. ..I had a difficult life as a result. They followed me everywhere and haunted every place I live (like the family I lived with), including work, tormenting even the people around me. I think they helped sabotage my career, else I could settle down and continue my research.
