Well I guess I can explain it perfectly fine. I might be confusing this with another thread, but I did explain it. Nothing wrong with doing it
As I said, there are light based and mass based warp drives. mass based are more expensive but a lot easier to make.
First part of the device is a closed metallic cylinder. It has to be big, thick, hollow, and wired up so it generates a very very powerful negative
charge. Within the cylinder's hollowed out part, you place a smaller version of the same cylinder, stretched to reach the top and bottom parts. Wire
it up too so it gets the same negative force. Make the space a vacuum. What you now have is a vacuum filled with very very powerful negative charges.
We now bring in a negatively charged ion. Most of the time I post this I say negatively charged Hydrogen, but this looks interesting to use as well
anywho, pump the vacuum with a lot of this negatively charged gas. The negative charge will pressurize the gas. At some point we stop pumping the gas
and keep the space closed off. We increase the power of the cylinder, making it more negative. Eventually we are going to have the electrons want to
pounce off. This is bad. So we begin cooling the entire device. Cooling it down to almost absolute zero. We make the pressures of the negative charge
and temperature (which affects volume) so powerful that the gas becomes a super compressed, super cooled superfluid. They become entangled, loosing
their individual individual identities. They act as one very big molecule. Essentially, atomic mystery meat, if you will. At this point, if we keep
applying force and lower temperatures, we get something that starts to generate its own gravity. We want something that can create a powerful
gravitational force. It will not be an event horizon, but it will be very close. This cannot be done on Earth, or the Earth will theoretically have
its orbit affected. We will need to do it far away in interplanetary space.
next step is to have a ring of these devices around your space ship. Preferably along the x y and z axis. But in theory, you can just have one ring
horizontally oriented to your ship.
Due to Newton's shell theorem, the ship will feel no gravity at the center point in the ring.
Now we start rotating the devices. Each individual cylinder making the ring. Their poles, the top and bottom of the cylinder, are connected to the
cylinder next. So we are rotating them Uranus-style. At a set spin, the devices begin to generate individual ergospheres. An ergosphere is a region
surrounding a spinning dense mass. It is an oval, not reaching the poles, but rather being exerted like an accretion disk. The ergosphere has a faster
relativity to the outside observer. The devices have a slowed down relativity to the outside observer. The ship, due to the cancellation of the
gravity, is theoretically in outside relativity. But if a gravity well forms, it is at the relativity of the devices.
When you have a large enough ergosphere from each device, you have now successfully placed the craft you are in inside an inside out black hole. An
inverted black hole. it is an ergosphere encased in an almost event horizon, encased in another ergosphere. Because space time is being altered, the
ship can now multiply its actual velocity by using a time-space warp. When the craft accelerates, let's say, 1/10th the speed of light, the moving of
space time in the inner ergosphere, shoves the region of space the ship is in a multiplication of this. if we have set the ergopshere at 10X outside
relativity, the craft is now traveling at the speed of light to the outside observer, while its own relativity is at 1/10th the speed of light. The
almost event horizon around this ergosphere is collecting anything that the craft is coming in contact with. it is a shield, of sorts. Slowing down
time to the extent that matter cannot pass through fast enough to reach the ship. Don't worry about hitting a planet. At this relativity, the ship's
actual size is masked. The warping space time causes the ship to be as large as a small ball or something to the outside observer. The ergoshere
encasing this almost event horizon is multiplying the overall outside observer velocity. It too is 10X relativity. The ship is thus traveling 10X the
speed of light to the outside observer.
That, is your warp drive.
As to light based, it's the same thing with focused lasers. Light, due to E=mc^2, can affect space time many times more mass can. It is more
efficient, but more complicated. You have to find a way to spin these bends in space time to generate an ergosphere.
essentially, if the same ship above exchanged its mass drive with the same kind of engine using light drive instead, it would be going how ever much
mass is being used faster. E=mc^2. So if the compressed mass was the mass of, say, the empire state building... Well... do the math.

If the oil companies were smart, they'd use their trillions to make those technologies, and get millions of trillions.
So anywho. I have to ask someone if I can talk about his electron device as there is a technology being developed that would allow this sort of stuff
