EXPERIMENTS IN A ZPE ENVIRONMENT The name zero-point energy came from a "Gedanken", a thought experiment. The challenge was: If you went where there was no matter so that matter could not be converted to energy; and there was no radiation so that the radiation could not be converted to energy; and the temperature was zero degrees Kelvin would there be any energy there? The answer became, "Yes there would be lots of energy." That is the zero-point energy.

Some of our scientists have computed or demonstrated that there is an enormous amount of zero-point energy (space energy, vacuum energy, et al.) We are informed that there is sufficient energy in the volume of a soft drink can that if all of that energy were turned into thermal energy one could boil the Atlantic Ocean! Dr. Harold Puthoff, and others, have shown that inertia can be explained by the presence of this space energy.

Consider that many of our scientific experiments are conducted within this enormous energy field. Because it has only been recently that some scientists have recognized this energy, most scientists fervently teach and believe that you can never get more energy out of an experiment than you put into an experiment. Therefore, there is a widespread notion that any experiment including rotating machines, solid-state circuits, perpetual motion devices of all kinds, and all type of chemical experiments are limited by the energy input (including available chemical energy).

It is now time to recognize and carefully consider the potential effect of any experimental interaction with the vast energy that is in space everywhere. If there is even a tiny fraction of the available energy of space coupled into an experiment, there is the potential for considerably more energy out than energy input. The first of these types of experiments that led to a patent is the following: Kenneth R. Shoulders, "Energy Conversion Using High Charge Density", U.S. Patent 5,018,180, issued May 21, 1991.

This was the first charge-cluster (EV) patent to issue and states: "An EV passing along a traveling wave device, for example, may be both absorbing and emitting electrons. In this way, the EV may be considered as being continually formed as it propagates. In any event, energy is provided to the traveling wave output conductor, and the ultimate source of this energy appears to be the zero-point radiation of the vacuum continuum."

It is time to consider the nature of the ZPE environment in planning and conducting any experiments.
