Posted by a good friend on ECW, this is a discussion of some fascinating science.
Once in a while you hear about a radical technology that makes you think, “If this is real it could change the world!” This is what happened to me recently after watching the video posted to YouTube by Dr. Garret Moddel of the University of Colorado about his breakthrough invention. Instantly, I became fascinated with the concept and started reading everything I could find about it and the Casimir Effect in general. I’m now convinced that it probably works how he says it does and could possibly accelerate the global paradigm shift.
His invention taps energy from the fluctuations of the Zero Point Energy field by attaching a Casimir Cavity to a metal insulator metal junction. A Casimir Cavity in the simplest version can be described as two flat parallel electrically neutral plates positioned very close together – a micron or a millionth of a meter or less. Since the Zero Point Energy field is thought to be composed of a broad range of photon wavelengths and therefore associated energies, many of these wavelengths are excluded from the gap in between the two plates which are acting as mirrors. The result is a reduction in the ZPE force or pressure between the plates and more pressure on the outside of the plates. This produces a force pushing the plates together.
