I and a few others have been discussing this for some time and with some advice from some users here who have given me their opinions of my design,
I've decided to make it a topic and ask for your feedback. This is both a feedback and opportunity for you to post your own ideas, as well as take
mine and modify them. The story of my design basically goes with a thought experiment that I had and followed suit to ask a physicist on their
opinions. Sadly he said he was still studying the subject at his university and not yet able to confirm them, but said they were interesting and
possibly workable. So began my journey to ask people about the designs and get feed back. Thus far the feedback has been pretty good, and so I want to
post it here. This is a reedited version of the original message. The images still have spelling errors that I'm too lazy to be bothered to fix.
Imagine you create a cylinder, maybe twice as high as its radius, and then place within it a smaller version of the cylinder, and then charge these
two to be very very negative. What material? I don;t know. Something that holds lots and lots of electrons, Probably a metal that can run electrons
through it at enormous rates, or a nonmetal that can hold lots of electrons and make a heavy duty negative charge. This is a thought experiment, so
just imagine that this material is producible (as it probably will be in a few years with the rate of technological advancements these years. but
anyway, back to the cylinder. Fill the space between them with negative particles (anti protons maybe, or something with significant mass). We want
something that can obey the ideal gas laws, but also be compacted easily, so anti-hydrogen seems ideal for usage. Now, e have a gas that is in a
confined space, but not allowed to touch the cylinders due to electronic charge. Now what do we do? We make a superfluid and freeze them to the point
that they super condense into a "hollow" black hole (with the inner cylinder being the hollow part). Now, make a row of these things, each rotating
in opposite directions to the one next to them. Then, place bellow this another line, going opposite in rotation to those above them. The lower ones
would have gravity stronger to the ones above so that the combined vectors would create Earth gravity (or they could be equal for 0 gravity,
whatever). None the less, this creates an area under the influence of the gravity. The gravity should be only relative to the general area of the two
groups, as gravity should be canceled out by their rotation and spins as you go farther out. What we're doing here is using gravity wells. However,
it may be easier for us to use eliptic cylinders, rather than circular shapes ones. This enables us to create and destroy waves at levels within human
control. The areas of larger radius have more gravity, smaller radius areas have les gravity, so we can create waves in the space-time continum just
as we do in wave pools. Using this method, we'd need to use alternating patterns of gravity rings to make it so that the craft would be cut off from
outside relativity. This is done through gravity valleys. Then we need to accelerate areas in the back of the craft. By doing this, impulse from the
back is pushing the ship ahead of it with a lot more energy being put in. Taping the back of this area of accelerated time, would make it soom away at
speeds faster han our relativity of light speed. Bug because of the gravity ring, it pulls everything within this temporal "bubble" with it. It
would be like having a wind tunnel, of sorts. At this point, the ship is propelled forward and space around them warp so that the ship could travel
faster then light relative to us, but not faster than light to its own relativity. Time should be affected so that the gravity "canyon"around the
gravity hill and the rest of the universe is that you can move faster then light while not breaking the laws of the universe. If a photon hits the
hill, it slows due to the slowing of time from gravity, ultimately coming to what we would see as a complete stop. If light cannot reach the item
within the ring of gravity, then information cannot go faster than the paused light to tell the craft to go slower than light. The spin within,
however, should accelerate time enough so that the time outside the shell and inside go relatively at the same rates, thus achieving fast travel. This
works in par with Newton's shell theorem, only working in such a way so as to limit all information from outside.
As a side note:
Also, taking this concept further, if you used the same method to make two hollow spheres, one inside the other, and filled the space in between with
matter (like the cylinder above),and charged the spheres, that you could go forward in time. The inner hollow sphere would be weightless, and allow a
human to occupy it. Time within should go far slower then outside. Perhaps spinning it would allow reverse time travel, as the good Dr Ronald Mallett
is doing with his time machine.
Now back to warp speed:
To destroy the black hole, some solutions would be protons. If we take the route of the borderline-black hole, the protons would reach the inner parts
and destroy it. Otherwise natural black hole evaporation is the only way.
continues...(this was part 2 of it to someone who wanted me to explain it more)
Well often Gravity is shown as a kind of valley on a 2d plane. And this is also where time begins to be altered as a result of gravity ( I believe
that's how it works). Knowing this, I wanted to think of how I could create the opposite. This area would go faster or equal to our relativity to our
viewpoint. A Gravity "hill" is what I thought of.
One way to make this hill may be by creating a hollow black hole, or something with enough gravity to make the distortion.
Indeed, "hollow" isn't the right phrase perhaps. It's basically two hollow spheres, one smaller than the other, and the space between being filled
with a lot of compressed mass. It's kind of forcing three dimensions into something that has none through an indirect trick. Black holes have no
dimensions, so this method is forcing dimensions into a dimensionless void.
I have a pictures if it helps:
By leaving the space inside empty, with 1 ATP, and the opposite side with opposite spin of the black holes, you can create an area not affected by
time space distortions, and as such a gravity hill artificially made. Think of this point as like between two enormous bodies. Their pull of gravity
is such so that one cancels out the other a little bit more then the other, thus creating 1 Earth Gravity for the occupants to safely exist in (or you
can have them equal and have 0 gravity)
More pictures if it helps
Basically, matter in the gravity ring you see in the picture above, moves slower from time space distortions and then moves normally to our relativity
inside the gravity well. By doing this, you can move faster to a location than it would take on normal speeds, because your object is traveling
through this gravity ring at normal speeds, but it seems to be going faster than light at our viewpoint. I believe this is a Doppler effect of some
sort. I think it may be creating a very large tachyon to our relativity, but in reality it is not.
Warp speed, in a simple term.
Hope that helps.
As to the possible application to a time machine I mentioned in the later parts of my message, it's just an alteration a bit to what's there. Just
two hollow spheres, one smaller then the other, and on inside the other, with lots of matter in between them. That should allow the occupant inside
the inner sphere to safely travel forward in time because time to that person would seem to go faster relative to that location inside.
Finally, the ship. The cylinders around it are the previously mentioned cylinders. Within is a ship, surfing the gravity waves.
