Yeah, I’ve recently been wondering about Heim’s conception of physics. I learned of his endeavours in 2006, but since then I haven’t happened
across anything else about his work.
As you’ve implied, Heim’s mathematics is regarded as dense and complex. Perhaps his genius is difficult for other, less imaginative scientists to
access, much less comprehend. Or, perhaps, his calculations and the conclusions he reached from them were inherently flawed and erroneous.
Interestingly, the link I’ve included suggests that a segment of Heim’s theory was able to accurately calculate the ground state masses of various
elementary particles. Critics of Heim’s work, however, claimed that the test lacked rigour. Accordingly, Heim, or proponents of his work, could not
substantiate any conclusions about his theories on the basis of this test.
The method of propulsion that he posits is certainly hard to imagine. As I understand it – and correct me if I’m wrong – any vehicle utilizing
his mode of propulsion would remain, or at least appear to remain, in the same spatial coordinates but would simultaneously travel to its destination
via a higher dimension. On completion of its journey through the higher dimension in which it travelled, the craft would concurrently disappear at the
point of departure only to instantly reappear at new spatial coordinates, namely the point of arrival.
Very interesting fellow was our Burkhard. Although I'm not too sure if I'd use his engine myself. Does Event Horizon mean anything to you?
