Virtual particles are just that. Virtual. We made them up because we don't know what they are.
[sigh] I'm guessing science was not Your strong suit. Please view this article:
They're not actually particles. They could literally be micro-sized tea pots of a long gone civilization. They don't pop in and out of reality.
They are literally the forces that control reality. Phasing in and out like ones and zeros because that's exactly what they are. 1s and 0s for
positive and negative force and many other things. You cannot use them in any sense. It's like saying you are going to use the energy of an electron
and put it into a wire. No, it doesn't work that way. The energy is the electron.
Well, I think the article I linked to will make it clear that You are wrong: they ARE particles, they are NOT teapots, fig leaves, aardvarks or
anything else, they DO pop in and out of reality, and they aren't "controller of reality." And the energy created comes from the annihilation of
particles with their anti-particles, both of which come into being simultaneously. You might revisit Your views of how things work.
This miracle energy anywhere and anytime, where do you think it comes from? It comes from wherever you are. All mass is compressed light, and
all light is compressed energy. This energy is floating trough the universe from long-decayed photons from the big bang. It is NOT limitless, and it
is NOT always available. It's literally the dust of the universe. No dust, and something has to replace it. once again, you're sucking energy from
somewhere. In this case, Earth.
Yeah, I don't think I can help You until You are up to speed with current science. None of the above is close to the mark.
That's untrue, you can just put on a user tax. And that's great. You can just say to all your people, we govern this place, and you're taking
energy from it. So here's a new tax
How would that work if One owns the apparatus? Do They tax solar energy One collects from One's own solar panels? Given They have no way to monitor
One's use in such instances, They can't. And, again, with the need for money dissipating, taxes dissipate too.
I don't think I want to read that. Because 1950s technology brought us the wonders of... Chernobyl, the Greenland Nuclear incidents. Lots of
other fun times. Primitive plastics. Oh yes, we don't know how to make plastics right, but we know how to control virtual particles. Are you
Well THAT's an open-minded intelligent approach. I guess it explains why Your science knowledge is lacking. You equate reading with bringing on
social horrors...I guess.
Dark Energy is possibly pushing things apart. But we're not that sure. And even if it is that force, that's not "the" universe. That's actually
the universe's reset button.
OH boy. And You know there is some "reset button" involved because...?
When dark energy eventually does decay, the universe will snap back on itself and restart.
1. Dark energy does not "decay" per se. It is constantly renewing and seething forth into this universe.
2. Where did You get this whole idea from, that the universe will "snap back" when dark energy "decays?"
That's assuming we know what it does, which we don't.
Ah. Well, I'm guessing YOU don't...
And if it does, I don't exactly feel safe living in a world with increased amounts of dark energy. I mean, if that's what's causing the whole
universe to shear apart, God help the world that has to depose that waste product somewhere. What exactly are you going to do with this dark energy
floating around if it does act like the opposite of gravity? Where will you get rid of it? Will you just let it collect and push the earth into
pieces, or off away from the sun? I don't feel safe from it.
[sigh] I am clueless as to what You think You're describing... The extraction of this energy does not "increase" dark energy. It transforms dark
energy into electricity. There is no "waste." There is nothing to "get rid of."
Seriously, a bit of study and reading (which, no, will not cause social ills if You do) will go a long way to clearing up the many misconceptions I
Your links and your facts are not up to date with current data. Sorry, it's just outdated.
ROFL! Please, then, provide links to what YOU think is current. That I have been reading everything that comes along on energy science - even as
recently as a day or two ago... I'm guessing that, not only are My facts up to date, YOU are struggling to grasp what little You have
