Regarding the earlier explanation for the UNITEL craft achieving propulsion like a "StarTrek tractor beam in reverse by projecting a mini-blackhole in
front", I'm guessing that this would entail utilizing the virtual particles in the Zero-Point Energy field. Einstein once wondered if the vacuum in
Outer Space was really devoid of anything. It turns out that it contains zillions of virtual particles and anti-particles constantly annihilating
each other. Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman once computed that a "beaker full of empty space" contains enough potential energy to vaporize all of
Earth's ocean. The Casmir Effect is one experimental validation of the ZPE.
But engineering the ZPE has been described as impossible for all practical purposes by leading experts. (And maybe that is a good thing if the ZPE is
what constitutes the fabric of space-time itself.) Perhaps the UNITEL craft sought to "extract" these virtual particles long enough to create a
temporary mini-black hole that would appear anywhere the quantum laser lens was aimed. (Note that I am not getting into interstellar navigation
through Macro Quantum Tunneling/Entanglement or Bob Lazar's delta configuration of folding space-time here. That is an entirely different topic.)
The original UNITEL book is at www.stealthskater.com...
. (This preceded Paul Kirsch's book noted below.) The
patented lens was also to be used in UNITEL's HOLO-1 quantum holographic computer which would be in the craft. As described in the book, the three
rotating sections in the lens were to be 1-to-3 atoms thick and made using Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) fabrication technology at the University of
Illinois at Chicago (UIC) MicroPhysics Lab (formerly the U.S. Army Advance Materials Research lab which was responsible for innovations like night
vision optics). To make a 5-ft diameter lens would require 1.7 years. And then according to UNITEL CEO Larry Maurer, it would have to be shipped to
San Diego to be mounted in a special titanium frame.
Larry was trying to get $7MM funding for this. But investors were wary because much of this was unproven physics. Larry later admitted that much of
the initial investment would be used to make the machines that would later be used to make the actual lens. That may not be so farfetched. I used to
wear contact lenses before my cataract operation. Years ago I read where manufacturing technology had succeeded in making machines that were able to
make silicon-free contact lenses. And how long have contact lenses been used?
Dr. Matti Pitkanen's Topological GeometroDynamic (TGD) physics (as referred to earlier) was a major improvement on John Archibald Wheeler's GD. TGD
replaces the ZPE field with Zero Energy Ontology (ZEO). Using that, Matti calculates much less potential energy. There is no law in Physics that
prevents a reversed Arrow-of-Time (i.e., Future=>Present=>Past). But we don't see that in our ordinary lives. However, TGD does allow that on a
quantum basis. This gets into Minkowski and Hilbert spaces with Past and Future "lightcones" (en.wikipedia.org...
Apparently all you have to do to "see" the Future is get near a massive gravitational field. I've always had problems reconciling that with free
will. But I don't have the required mathematical skills to understand it.
One of Wheeler's graduate students was Feynman himself. Another was Hugh Everett of parallel universes fame
). Everett's thesis (using quantum statistical mechanics mathematics) proved the possibility. But many
physicists interpret the results as possible histories rather than actual alternate universes. So is the "Yellow Book"/"Red Book"
) allegedly given to us by "Them" (E.T.) that shows holographic images of past events and future
possibilities. (This was the theme in the movie "Paycheck" with Ben Affleck and Uma Thurman.)
Folklore says that a copy of the "Yellow Book" is stored in the bowels of the Hoover Dam, underneath the Denver Airport, and in the underground mall
in Washington, DC. I find that hard to believe. Why not in the "Blue Room"/"Hangar 8" at WPAFB. On that, Senator Barry Goldwater was a General in
the Air Force Reserves. He once asked General Curtis LeMay about getting a tour of the "Blue Room". He was abruptly cussed out by his friend and
threatened with court martial if he brought up the topic again. LeMay admitted that he wasn't even allowed in there and he was the base commander.

Speaking of dams, most of them are operated by the US Army Corps of Engineers. Some of them offer public tours. I went on one at Sutton, West
Virginia. First, no pictures (of course) are allowed. You have to surrender all cellphones and even your drivers license (which was a first for me).
I was surprised that in these high-tech days, everything within the dam was from the 1940s era. No computer control, no LED lights. All
manually-operated valves and old-fashioned gauges. The bottom level (of six) was actually below the lake. If the maximum discharge rate is ever
exceeded, ground/bush/trees lining the lake will be "sucked in".
Another fascinating tour I had was Green Bank Observatory (greenbankobservatory.org...
) which features the largest movable/steerable radio
telescope in the World. They offer a behind-the-scenes "high tech" tour once-a-month. I saw the actual control room. But it wasn't like in the
Jodie Foster movie "Contact". 10-or-so computers were arranged in a large semi-circle with one operator rolling between them. The "guts" of the
operation consisted of fiber optic cables and servers behind a glass wall. They bragged about having the World's best internet whose fiber optics
were strung along telephone poles from southern West Virginia all the way to Pittsburgh.
You can view the facility by using Google's Satellite Earth View (satellites.pro...
). I also used it to view Wyoming's Devils Tower
) which was featured in the movie "Close Encounters". Unlike the movie, however, there is no hollow space
"inside" the Tower. It is flat on top with vegetation. It is considered sacred by Northern Plains Indians and access is limited to rock climbing
(with permission). Walking/exploring on top is strictly forbidden to preserve the fragile grasslands. Even helicopters are prohibited from
approaching the top due to the damaging downwash from the rotor blades.
