Nature of Zero-Point-Energy: Quantum Theories

Zero-point-energy vacuum fluctuations exist uniformly throughout the universe. There are 10 to the 94th grams of mass energy contained in one cubic centimeter of zero-point-energy. This energy equivalence equals more matter than that contained within the entire known universe. It is theorized that much of this energy disappears into extra dimensions in space time; otherwise the whole universe would be a solid black hole.

Matter is only a slight disruption in the vast fields of zero-point-energy. Beyond that, zero-point-energy is perfectly balanced (at rest) and can't gravitate on itself to collapse the universe.

A Theory of Everything

The event making the Big Bang possible may have involved a gravitation of less than one cubic centimeter of zero-point-energy smaller than an atom. Random energy fluctuations of all possible wavelengths and orientations would have had to organize into the embryonic laws governing the course of the Universe.

The Big Bang formed the building blocks of matter. Matter gravitated into stars, and later created the more complex elements. It would take intelligent engineering to provide the conditions needed for life, the creation of complex life forms, and the advancement of civilizations.

Zero-Point-Energy Star Travel Theories

A small reduction of zero-point-energy in front of an accelerating spacecraft would vastly reduce inertial resistance while expanding the speed of light in the direction of travel. A reduction of zero-point-energy is known as negative energy, or the Casimir force. Negative energy has been created in the laboratory.

Once conventional light-speed is exceeded, tachyon physics would permit continued acceleration with a shedding of built-up energy. This process could continue up to the desired transit.

Generation of energy would be required for the spacecraft to drop to light-speed. It would also refract below conventional light speed in a vacuum, and then slow more upon approach to a destination.

Experimental Proof of Zero-Point-Energy

Zero-Point-Energy vacuum fluctuations maintain proportionately higher frequencies and energy levels over shrinking micro-space intervals.

Place two conductive plates at micron distance from each other and a pressure from zero-point-energy will close the plates. This is possible from exclusion of wavelengths too large to pass between the plates.

Zero-Point-Energy can be extracted, where a proton in a vacuum will absorb and transmit 1000 electron volts of energy.

Extraction of zero-point-energy could be used to extract energy and use it for propulsion. The inertia of the spacecraft would also be reduced, as the spacecraft quickly accelerates.
