At the temperature of absolute zero there's a continual background flux of matter and energy. The theory is that it could be a potential exploitable
unlimited resource by the use of some kind of mechanical or electronic valve to produce a linear force from these random waves.
For a simple & descriptive analogy think of those Dutch electrical generators that float on the ocean and mechanically transfer wave motion into
cranking a generator for electrical production.
Or something like this:
The above isn't an example of zero point energy but is a device to help you imagine how random motion & energy can be transformed to a linear
