hey man do me a favor and go back and read the last post from me where i'm explaining my theory more in detail!
I did, after I realized you posted that (work on my last post was interrupted by several other things, and took a while).
I'm not quite sure where you get the idea that you could use magnetic fields to become light.
The only other issue I see is that light is not really weightless, as the proverbial black-hole would demonstrate. Antigravity would tell that black
hole where to stick it... light is at the mercy of the black hole.
Back onto the issue of light - while light is an electromagnetic wave, no known magnetic field can switch at that frequency. We can get into the tens
and hundreds of gigahertz - but that's nothing approaching visible light. Even then - that doesn't cause you to resonate at that frequency... and
radiating light would generally be an indicator you were being exposed to very damaging levels of energy... I know people glow pretty bright when they
get hit by a nuclear flash... and it doesn't turn out too well for them.
anyways what i'm saying is this! i think we could bend time and space ourselves!
I'm not of the opinion time exists. Subatomic activity - what we often attribute to time - is an entropic property, like temperature. Sticking your
corn in the freezer for a month doesn't send it traveling through time - only slows its relative molecular activity. This is a conclusion Einstein
and others rushed to make. Had they realized the importance of entanglement (or "spooky action at a distance") - then it would have been easy to
see that time and space were not at all the same thing, and that time travel is impossible regardless of how you manipulate a worm-hole.
The problem is, more or less, how to entangle space. IE - create a worm-hole. Traveling at speeds faster than the speed of light is going to be
pretty much impossible. Even concepts of "hyperspace" leave me dubious. The only real practical way I see of superluminous relocation is to
entangle two regions of space (perhaps with a buffer-region to prevent shearing or other bad things) and pass through those regions of space - going
in one sends you through to the other.
If you want "inertial dampening" we would need a way of directly manipulating the entropic state of mater. Everything possesses this entropic state
- it is why two particles colliding in an accelerator at relative superluminous velocities do not, at least according to all we can tell, produce an
over-unity reaction. This would be a form of "anti-gravity" - in the sense that you could directly manipulate velocity - ideally in a uniform
The problem, now, however, is going from operating theory to operating device. The theory is good - but relies on magic to work. The magic needs to
be replaced with something in the real world that does what the magic in this example does. That's a little more difficult. And, perhaps more
importantly - the theory may not have convenient operation.... A "jump drive" jumping into another region of space may find itself in a space with a
completely different entropic state (like throwing a hot plate into a tub of ice-water, or a cold plate into hot water, depending upon which way
time and space work off magnetism right? well thats a start in the right direction!
.... while I'm sure placing a large, 1 Mega-Gauss magnet next to my head would have some adverse effects, it would not alter space or time.
You can levitate many living things inside of a 30-40 Gauss field, if I remember correctly. Water is diamagnetic, and allows that to work.
Researchers have levitated a frog, spider, and probably half a dozen other things they tactically acquired from the Biology department.
if we can negate gravity we should be able to bend it b/c i know damn well we can create it
Well, going fast enough generates many of the same effects as being in proximity to a dense mass - including "time" dilation (slowing of subatomic
activity relative to other frames of reference).
all gravity really is...is inertia!
I wouldn't quite say that - it's the new fad to consider it an entropic function. Entropy is the tendency for things to seek a lower energy state.
Water flows down hill - that sort of thing. To separate two objects is to give them a relative amount of energy - as is to give them relative
vectors. Gravity is merely the entropic function of mass.
We can already manipulate it - rockets do this. Though if you want a more uniform way of doing this (so as to remove inertial effects - or the
resistance to a change in velocity - or a change in entropic state), things get a little more complicated, and we don't really have much of a way to
make that happen.
think about it why does the earth have gravity? because its rotation and the friction between it and the moon! causes the core to create a
pull! our mass pushes us down along with the atomosphere and everything
... The rotation of the Earth actually happens to counter-act the force of gravity. This is because it applies angular momentum -away- from the
surface of the planet. The same can be said for Earth's orbit, as you approach night-time, Earth's orbit is 'throwing' you away from the
Not to mention, this begs the question as to how the Earth keeps the moon in orbit, or the Sun keeps the planets in orbit.
well syntrifical force is based off inertia and does the same thing it creates gravity!
so if we can do all that surely we can bend it?
Centrifugal force is the only force we can replicate (the tendency of an object to migrate away from a center of rotation). You see this in roller
coasters, carnival rides, and "simulated gravity" through spinning a 'wheel' that people live on.
Centripetal force is only known to exist as gravity. While many will say that we use centripetal force to simulate gravity - this is really done
through use of centrifugal force and walking on the interior of the surface being rotated.
I know - it's frustrating. I always used to be appalled at the idea that we could place a man on the moon, make planes fly faster than the speed of
sound, and still had to move the couch out in order to retrieve something that falls between it and the wall.
Something so simple - and yet all of our technology is almost powerless to solve such simple problems. Like what gravity is... a concept we've
recognized for over 300 years.... and still don't have much of an answer to - even though I've stated with confidence above - it's all but the
ramblings of a mortal critter.
