I'm thoroughly enjoying this thread, I hope you are too. For my next installment, TheBadCabbie's theories on The Philadelphia Experiment.
I think this was an experiment creating relativistic effects 'at rest', as it were. By at rest, I mean at rest in the here and now, whatever relative
frame that might be. Perhaps I should explain a little more. It's not really accurate to say at rest, because is anything ever truly at rest?
The pet rock on your desk appears to be at rest, but it's really not. It's only at rest relative to its surroundings. It, like you and the rest of
your immediate surroundings, is heaving slightly with the motions of the earth's crust, rotating with the earth, revolving around the sun with the
earth, which in turn is revolving around the galaxy with the rest of the solar system, which is in turn moving through the universe with the rest of
the galaxy. I'm not sure that anything is truly at rest in our universe.
When we speak of relative effects then, they only happen in exactly that way in relation to our relative frame of reference. If time slows down for
us as we travel faster and stops when we hit the speed of light, what would happen if we could truly be at rest? Would time then speed up, and we come
back after a year of resting to find that only ten minutes have passed here? Shouldn't it speed up infinitely, as the relative opposite of time
stopping when we reach the speed of light? If that is the case, then an infinite amount of time passed by an object at complete actual rest should
pass for it in its frame with no time at all passing for us in our frame of reference relative to it, right? Can an object at complete actual rest
even exist then?
My point is that our perception of relativity is colored by our frame of reference, which doesn't actually offer a proper extreme low speed of being
completely at rest as a starting point. We don't know what happens at that extreme, we've never been there. I'm not sure that we can get there, or
that we would even know we were there if we accidentally were at rest for a brief moment. We have plenty to learn about relativity then, in my
Bearing that in mind, relativistic effects at rest. Oh sure, radio waves bounce off each other, each traveling at the speed of light, or almost.
What if we saturated a local area with electromagnetic radiation though, the emanations aimed at each other to collide head on and infused with a
large amount of intensity? We try to create a 'light speed' type of environment, with all of it's weird effects, while 'at rest'? Whether this could
be done with a set of coils that are stationary or would require moving parts I don't know. I always picture it as a pair of counter-rotating coils,
one atop the other, but I don't know that that is how it needs to be done. I might have a physicist or two screaming at their computer screens about
how wrong I am right about now, but that doesn't concern me really.
Anyhow, so we've got speed of light relativistic effects 'at rest' now, on the deck of the Philly. Supposedly time stops, we all have infinite mass
now, we have flattened to true two dimensionality, and we have changed from matter into energy, but we're still at rest relative to our frame of
reference. I think some would say we would cease to exist at this point. Maybe all that stuff isn't what actually happens here, but something else.
Maybe this is the pathway to dimensional travel. I don't know this for fact, but if true it explains what happened to the Philadelphia during that
experiment. They got into the dimensional shift state but had no means of navigating it once they got there, so forward time travel, ship vanishes
and reappears, dudes are melted through the deck, weird toroid shaped energy field shoots through the ship right before it vanishes, etc., etc.
How would you navigate through a dimensional shift like that? I wouldn't know, haven't been there yet. I know Bealik and the other missing sailors
were supposedly pulled out of the ether into the future by thought anchors, so perhaps thought plays a critical role, I'm not sure though. Where does
up take you? To the right? To the left? I don't know. Anyhow, this is my theory on what they did back there. Master this technology, and folding
space should be elementary. If this is how it works, you can bet that's how ET is usually getting here.
