I am far from a believer that antigravity is a technology that has been harnessed by mankind.
Then read the signs and stopping feeding the dumb animals.
Seeing how the entire physical paradigm of this planet revolves around gravity then the manipulation of gravity as a weapon could have a profound
impact on the occupants of this planet.
Gravity weapon applications could range from the pinpoint squishing of one adversary to crushing an entire city, causing earthquakes or creating
tsunamis aimed at a particular land mass, etc.
Proliferation of technology like that could be far worse than proliferation of nuclear weapons and thus potentially worse than "Hitler and the death
camps" or "the Enola Gay and Hiroshima".
Easy technology that can be readily replicated tends to be easily developed whether or not you are high-tech in the accepted sense. It's much more
likely that the sheer physics of any such device requires orders of magnitude improvements in BOTH the base engineering and production designs as well
You want to create a situation in which these weapons you 'potentially' describe are used as assassin's tools? You make sure that nobody knows
what to look for. That it's 'all a surprise'.
You want to avoid the social inequities of a global civilization based on slave labor 'trade', you enable the baseline of ALL mercantile efforts:
cheap transport. For it is in the transit phase that value is generated and destroyed by lag and effort. Profit and developmental expansion of
opportunities for same only occur when 'the spice flows' as a function of creating a greater harmonized availability of resources for all.
Of course we are talking about something that is shear fantasy, but IF there were a vehicle that could propel itself by manipulating gravity, why
couldn't that same vehicle be able to manipulate gravity within the "cockpit" thus eliminating the potential of splattering the human occupant into
mush when conducting high "g" maneuvers.
Gravity is an omniwave phenomenon, it doesn't deal with mass so much as space. Even if you go off on a Neutrino tangent as Conserved Momentum
Stealer (deal breaker on linear motion through BD) the fact remains that Mass as a macro interactive form doesn't need to invoke /gravity/ to exert
or alter it's vector state as an independent motion.
Nor is gravity apt to be so strong (given the size of the world we sit on and it's relative effect on oursevles) as a local force as to be able to
defeat inertia on it's own.
i.e. Gravity doesn't 'stick' to any one mass or axes of motion, it is implied as the total interaction between greater and lesser bodies. Where's
the interaction between a pilot, his relatively loosely packed guts and the chair he's supposed to be anchored to? Are you telling me you can
control ALL microinertial vectors or just that you only tear cell walls in certain places, if the guy is locked down prone and 'horizontal' to the
implied axes of motion?
And since when has the military not resorted to crimes against humanity to accomplish it's goals?
By your own statements you obviously don't think that those who call the shots in the higher echelons of the military are righteous and noble in in
their endeavors, and yet you think that they would not suppress information that could help humanity. Where is your consistency?
$$$$. It makes more sense to exploit something than to hold it in reserve. Since the principle exertion of power is not for it's own sake
(especially when withheld as a statifying entropic force) but to effect other elements of social existence, there has to be more gained than lost here
and I don't see it.
The obvious analogue is 9/11. Disrupt a mass with another mass and you must literally fill the void created by the resulting entry-exit 'wound' by
virtue of relative displacement of local accelerations 'in all axes' of building kinetic motion (potentialism as a chaotic force). This in turn
means that not only must you be able to vary gravitational wave phenomenon through the empty 'space' and each relative structural acceleration mode
adjoining to it. But also through the structures contiguous mass effects /on each other/.
I don't see it happening as an electromagnetic (circuits made and broken) separation of phenomenon. Any more than I do as a flat-earth 'levelling'
mechanism for terrorists or nation states.
And yet, if the technology was there to cause it to be avoided (we have always known that some high rising structure would fall due to accident,
engineering faux pax, construction misassembly, unplanned fatigue or environmental reasons), I don't see the gain inherent to NOT 'yanking on the
bootstrap' to avoid some 400 billion dollars worth of wasted effort in Iraq.
i.e. More Money (making opportunities) can be created by building up than tearing down. If this were not true, our own system of Cold War politick
would never have succeeded in providing us an alternative to open conflict.
