Well, If I ever need to move my Cup of Coffee I know exactly what to do..

This is great. Thanks for posting it.

Seriously though. I don't give this much creedence. It's all well and good move some Polystyrene bits and a polystyrene cup in a plexiglass enclosure. Trying to move 20tons, out in the open, would require a lot of energy using this method.

I know there are rumours of the Monks using sound to move heavy materials but I've yet to see any real proof of this being done. I don't accept this as being proof in fact, I see this of more an example as to why it can't be done.

If you look at this logically you have all the sound being contained in a small area. The sound is being produced by more than one source and is being reflected from a number of sides. Out in the open, trying to move a 10ton block would require a lot of energy.

Just because I can't see how Sound can't move Giant Stones, doesn't mean I don't believe it can't be done. I just don't think this proves that it can be done.

I have a feeling that there's a reason they're using Polystyrene and what looks like a bit of Foam Rubber in this demonstration. I think if they tried it with some other material, it wouldn't of worked.

Awesome find!!

OK, I'm going to think outside the box for a moment. (pun intended)

I am no genius. I almost always get bored, and skip formulas when posted. So bare with me if what I'm saying is completely out of the question.

If whatever is in that box is floating, could they not possibly attach something TO that object and cause the entire box, (or enclosed container) to float? And as far as the annoying sound, couldn't they use something more sound proof to encase it?

My point earlier was that the video showed was demonstrated by a device created in 1987. We have to question how far we really are with this stuff. It's been 23 years since this device was created! Also, I'm still curious what "NASA related subject matter" entails.

We all know that the government keeps everything secret until it has been in use for many years.

Anyway, can someone who is much smarter when it comes to this stuff tell me if it would at all be feasible? Could they somehow make the entire encasement float?

Thanks for your patience. I'll sit back down now and pay attention.

NO BOX , no annoying sound , this guy had it down !

Yes leviation using sound wave resonance , the hutchinson effect , not sure if this is the same thing but this guy had been doing it since the 70's i believe

yeah i knew i saw all those ghetto gangs with there 10k watt stereo's bumping going down the street

my wife said they was hydraulics i told here heck naw woman they are trying to float lol

looks cool op
reminds me how the bible it said the everything was created with the word.aka sound

theres a photo of monks in india levitating a round ball in david childress's lost cities book.

also the stones of nan madol were supposedly 'flown thru the air', as were many other megalithic stone sites. probably with acoustic levitation perhaps?

Very impressive, and has now got me thinking on a new theory.
Notice how the objects spun. The smaller objects revolved around larger objects. Reminded me of planetary bodies.

So what if there is an inaudible tone / frequency throughout the universe that causes planets and stars etc. to rotate and float. This tone may not even be inaudible. Cosmologists have known about the “hiss” of space since the 60’s. It’s what you can hear on your radio between stations – White Noise.

So what if White Noise is the Universe’s special frequency to float large bodies and have smaller ones spin around them – and everything rotates in unison.

And NO – it is NOT gravity that causes these things…that topic is for another post.

BTW, I read a theory about 20 years ago that the ancient Egyptians may have used sound to levitate the massive blocks they used to build the pyramids. Perhaps there is some truth in it?

The principle shown there is using standing waves to levitate an object. While it is true that it is acoustic and that it levitates, pay close attention to the conditions:

1. the objects levitated are not very dense
2. the chamber is closed to encourage standing waves.

So the process is a form of aerodynamic lift.

How exactly one would scale this technology to lift rocks or monks I am not very sure. Maybe if one places the rock on a large styrofoam platform and then in a gigantic room stimulated by a humongous array of subwoofers running at subsonic frequencies. Not exactly the same as lifting rocks with human voice.

However I am still open minded to learn of a new process of levitation, other than aerodynamic, which may better support the allegations that people can levitate very heavy objects with their voices.

It seems to me that this technology could be used for fusion energy. Producing the sun in a controlled levitation field and reap the benefits of it's everlasting energy. If I am correct, the problem with fusion is containment. The fusion energy ball becomes so hot that nothing can withstand and melts, which of course we be disastrous. This would allow for the energy ball to not come into contact with any material other than the sound waves. Any ideas?

Star and flag, nice find. I've seen footage like this before but the more that builds up the more it makes you wonder what it has progressed too.

There is so much we really just do not know, and may never find out, at least not anytime soon...

Interesting tech but I wonder what it could ever be used for...
It seems like there's loads of ways to generate aerodynamic lift on light objects but the yalways seem to require massive chunks of machinery (and power) to achieve their objective.

The original video's blurb eludes to the fact this could be used in space/extraterrestial planet exploration but :

A: Surely it would be useless in a vacum
B: Surely it would need precise calculations and tweaks to adapt to a different planetary climate as sound moves/behaves at different speeds at different heats and gas composition ( I think).

Hmmm...that's what I was they hell do they expect this to work in space...they state they wanted to use it to remove dust that sticks to the space suits and rovers etc...are they just going to bring a huge balloon full of air with them, all get inside, and play high pitched sounds? I really don't understand how they can say that...

No. He used pulleys and levers.

It would heat the air up, and degrade very quickly, destroying the container. We're talking about nuclear fusion, not a boiling kettle

Also the sun is not everlasting - it burns through millions of tons of hydrogen a second. A small sun on the scale you are proposing would burn out rather quickly.

Ahh a topic I lurrv

The Current Lama wrote an introduction to The Tibetan Book of the Dead published by Penguin where he clearly talks about resonance and the universe

Understanding the fundamentals of standing waves (mechanical) is one of the stepping-stones to understanding powerful EM propulsion systems, but not the only. Cymatics is another. Remember, Ed discussed the rotating of a magnet and the wave forms it produced in iron shavings on a plane suspended over the spinning magnetic field. Keep this in mind...

Maybe this constant hum is similar to the one always associated with alien-life form. Perhaps this is why suspected UFOs float?

You can test it on your own. It's absolute funny, but this works 100%. I have tested it. If your peace of paper don't fly get louder, try different heights of the sound and you can see it works.

this will not work with speakers, it's the resonance pattern of your mouth that makes the effect.

Will wonders never cease!

To the poster who mentioned the way the small objects were spinning around the larger object I have to say excellent throught provoker. It reminds me of the Silmarillion and how the universe was created through song. Maybe everything is nothing but a vibration of sound. I dunno but its a cool thought.

To the OP thank you very much for bringing this to our attention. Exciting stuff!

To Phage thanks for your (awlays) informative input and scientific scrutiny. It helps keep my wild ideas grounded from time to time. Truly you deny ingnorance.

Cheers everyone
