Does anti-gravity technology truly exist?
That is, technology that can cause gravity to cease functioning around some enclosed area, something to reverse a tremendously powerful law of nature, like some plasma type fluid surrounding an object or enclosure that suspends the effect of gravity inside the enclosure.
When the thought first comes to mind, it sounds plausible: anti-gravity technology, the concept sounds like something that has already been produced by the scientific community, NASA, the people who engineer rockets, ect.
However, upon second thought it really is a crazy concept.
If gravity is something produced by planet Earth, by extremely massive and heavy objects in space, how could the effect of such a massive object possibly be reversed to any significant capacity by mere matter on a small patch of this massive Earth?
As far as we understand gravity, it is the weight of the entire Earth pulling everything on it toward itself, while we hurl through space and orbit around a gigantic producer of gravity known as the Sun. We’re on a giant ball being constantly pulled around the Sun at a consistent pace: and people think one little piece of a certain kind of matter in one human-sized spot on Earth could stop the enormity of that force? Doesn’t make sense if you think about it.
However, people such as Nikola Tesla believed that with knowledge of quantum physics, the macrocosmic laws of gravity could be avoided.
In certain communities of researchers, it has been wondered whether or not mercury or some plasma type material could be used to enclose an area and essentially make the laws of gravity cease to function within that enclosure.
Things are cited such as the work of Nikola Tesla. If people are talking about mercury, Tesla does in fact have something to do with the mercury based, fluorescent light bulbs that now saturate our society. However, that’s one invention of so many that Tesla had a major role in. He was more known for the positive things than the negative, and rightfully so.
According to Answers:
“It was Alexandre-Edmond Becquerel who first conceived the idea of placing a fluorescent coating on the inner surface of a high voltage gas discharge tube but he didn’t quite made it work properly. Tesla’s investigations in the area of high-voltage RF power processing techniques did result in the very first high efficiency, high frequency lighting ballasts in 1892.”
Now this is where Tesla’s mention of gravity becomes very complicated, but bear with it.
Around the age of 79 years old in 1935, Tesla was talking about “The Discovery of a new physical truth”: the concept that matter is actually devoid of all energy, except for what it has received from the environment.
The theory goes that an energy permeates all matter, and without this energy that permeates all matter, it reverts to a sort of state of decay.
A brief but profound mention toward this theory was made in an announcement by Tesla on his 79th birthday. He noted that this theory of energy permeating all matter applied to both the microcosm of molecules and atoms, but also the largest heavenly bodies.
So an energy permeates all heavenly bodies as well as molecules, atoms that resemble solar systems. Maybe there is something spiritual to be derived from this theory. Is this the force of gravity?
Referring to this energy as a “luminiferous ether,” a sort of light that permeates all matter, Tesla detailed his Dynamic Theory of Gravity in an article titled Man’s Greatest Achievement.
He believed this ether is acted upon, this energy is activated by the life giving creative force, and the creation of everything is this light reacting with creative energy to become “infinitesimal” whirls, or “micro helices,” that are somehow around the speed of light.
That, is how ponderable matter is created. Essentially, this is why everything solid, all matter is solid despite the fact that so much empty space exists in each molecule, according to Tesla’s theory.
But when the force, the light that permeates everything subsides and the motion ceases, from the atomic scale to planetary, matter reverts to the ether, or some kind of atomic decay begins.
It’s complex, but basically in defining gravity, and scientists were still actively trying to do at the time, Tesla sort of implied that forces of nature such as gravity could cease to function due to the disruption of the energy that makes matter solid.
According to Electrical Engineering Portal, Tesla was suggesting that: “Man can harness these processes to: Precipitate matter from the ether. Create whatever he wants with the matter and energy derived. Alter the earth’s size. Control earth’s seasons (weather control). Guide earth’s path through the Universe, like a spaceship. Cause the collisions of planets to produce new suns and stars, heat, and light. Originate and develop life in infinite forms.”
At the age of 82, Tesla chose to deviate from his usual thing and instead of speaking at a dinner party, he issued a written statement. It should be noted that this was shortly after he had been hit by a car, but his mind was still in the right place.
“I have worked out a dynamic theory of gravity in all details and hope to give this to the world very soon.”
His theory purports to explain what causes this force, and why planets, heavenly bodies rotate and act upon the influence of gravity, and he wanted to put an end to theories about “curved space.
“Granting a semblance of reality to this fantastic idea, it is still very self-contradictory. Every action is accompanied by an equivalent reaction and the effects of the latter are directly opposite to those of the former. Supposing that the bodies act upon the surrounding space causing curvature of the same, it appears to my simple mind that the curved spaces must react on the bodies and, producing the opposite effects, straighten out the curves.
Since action and reaction are coexistent, it follows that the supposed curvature of space is entirely impossible – However, even if it existed it would not explain the motions of the bodies as observed. Only the existence of a field of force can account for them and its assumption dispenses with space curvature. All literature on this subject is futile and destined to oblivion.”
It is extremely, extremely rare for such an intelligent and persistently driven person, also with a conscience, to exist like Nikola Tesla so this type of research is not common today at all. That’s an honest statement, Tesla’s name rings in the ears of a lot of people to the point where it becomes a little cliché, but this much is true.
The laws of physics as we know them are insane enough already: why would anti-gravity tech be impossible if the laws of the universe are already so crazy? We live on a ball rotating around a giant flaming ball of gas.
