This post is what I would call avoidance.
I agree it wouldn't be time well spent because I see no evidence that you can recognize a scam when it's staring you right in the face.

Buddhasystem,
What do you mean when you say the infinity can be removed by renormalization, so what we have is an artifact of quantum field theory?
And in your original statement that we can’t tap into it, but the vacuum can be said to contain infinite energy, why didn't you mention renormalization when you said that?

That's what I meant. The "infinity" is unobservable.

Baloney. I know a scam when I hear it!
It doesn't get much more simple than the claim that "all multiples of 9 equal 9"

i cant say if it is right or wrong
Is it really that hard to tell if that's true or not? You really can't say if that's right or wrong?
all multiples of 9 equal 9.

9*3=27=2+7=9
9*4=36=3+6=9

its the math system you only know that limits you to not know any other system. look at the binary system 2 numbers on and off, 0 and 1 and so on if you try to do binary with 10 number math it dosent make sense. you cant disprove it just cause you dont understand it. and i cant prove it cause im just understanding it. but why waste your time with the yes or no question,
if you think we have leaned all the ways to view this universe then then dont try to look into the ideas of another observer.
take it for what it is a new idea, if it has value someday something will come of it. if not we know what dosent work.

If I cashed a check for $81 and the teller handed me $9 I'd probably say "let me guess? You read Marko Rodin's paper on Vortex Mathematics? "

Vacuum can be thought of as containing an infinite amount of energy.
Naively, it is infinite, because it includes the energy of waves with arbitrarily short wavelengths. But since only differences in energy are physically measurable, the infinity can be removed by renormalization. In all practical calculations, this is how the infinity is handled. It is also arguable that undiscovered physics relevant at the Planck scale reduces or eliminates the energy of waves shorter than the Planck length, making the total zero-point energy finite.
As I said earlier, one of the best clues we have to the vacuum energy/cosmological constant were the observations made in 1998.

My guess is that in quantum mechanics it is also just a practical issue. The infinities will always cancel out so you can as well just make them 0 to start with (correct me if I am wrong).
I've given you 5 answers to the same question:
1. VERY CLOSE TO ZERO
2. INFINITY
3. ENORMOUS BUT FINITE
4. ZERO
5. NOT DETERMINED
Which should you believe? I believe 1) because it is based on experiment and fairly conservative assumptions about general relativity and astronomy. Answers 2)-4) are based on somewhat naive theoretical calculations. Answer 5) is the best that quantum field theory can do right now. Reconciling answers 1) and 5) is one of the big tasks of any good theory of quantum gravity.
The moral is: for a question like this, you need to know not just the answer but also the assumptions and reasoning that went into the answer. Otherwise you can't make sense of why different people give different answers.
