Thanks Graham!


Very much appreciated.


I downloaded the preprint of the announcement, and also noted Natalia Nikolova’s previous paper, “Uniaxial approach to time-domain computations using electromagnetic potentials.” International Journal of Numerical Modelling: Electronic Networks, Devices and Fields, Volume 17, Issue 3, 2004, Pages 269 – 284.


Looks like they are directly proving out some of the things contained in Maxwell’s actual 1864-5 quaternion theory, that were totally eliminated from the terribly reduced Heaviside equations that were adopted as “Maxwell’s theory” – and quickly chopped down even further by Lorentz who symmetrized the Heaviside equations in 1892 (eliminating all asymmetric Maxwell systems which could accept excess EM energy from the seething vacuum and use it to help power the loads, thus achieving COP>1.0), and who again in 1900 arbitrarily taught everyone a neat little trick to toss out the giant Heaviside curled EM energy flow component, that accompanies every Poynting energy flow component but is more than a trillion times its magnitude.


I hope that at least some of the modern researchers will get back to the quaternion EM theory; as shown by Froning and Barrett, it adds a vast number of capabilities and things that present electrical engineering does not even contain.


See H. David Froning, Jr. and Terence W. Barrett, “Investigations of Specially Conditioned Electromagnetic Fields for Local Modifications of Gravitation and Inertia,” Proc. High-Frequency Gravitational Waves Working Group, Mitre Corp., Washington D.C., Paper HFGW-03-122), May 6-8, 2003.

“...empirical evidence over the last 40 years (e.g., Aharonov-Bohm effect, Sagnac effect, Josephson effect, Berry’s phase, etc.) indicate that Maxwell’s theory of electromagnetism does not address global and multiply connected events—such as those associated with gravitational interactions between multiple bodies. Therefore, one of us (Barrett [1,2]) has applied gauge theory, group theory, and topological descriptions to extend Maxwell U(1) EM field theory to EM fields of higher order symmetry and multiply connected form.

   Such extended Maxwell theory results in, in addition to magnetic and electric fields, A-vector fields of real physical significance. … successful unification of gravity and electromagnetism … may require such higher order electromagnetism.”


Comment: One conditioning method is to modulate the polarization of microwave or laser radiation. The other method the use of contra-wound toroidal coils through which alternating current is flowing at resonant frequencies. For either method, electric and magnetic field energy is accompanied by A-vector potential field energy. This paper described certain unusual EM effects revealed by experiments with specially conditioned EM fields. These include: anomalous behavior of ferromagnetic aerosols when radiated by polarization-modulated laser light; and standing waves of very high magnetic field gradient that formed over contra-wound toroidal coils at resonant frequencies.

     Note that Barrett is one of the pioneers of ultrawideband radar, which at its inception was said to be impossible, against the laws of physics, etc.


 Nicola Tesla was definitely onto this “higher level and much more extensive” electrodynamics.


E.g., see also T. W. Barrett, "Tesla's Nonlinear Oscillator-Shuttle-Circuit (OSC) Theory," Annales de la Fondation Louis de Broglie, 16(1), 1991, pp. 23-41. Barrett shows that EM expressed in quaternions allows shuttling and storage of potentials in circuits, and also allows additional EM functioning of a circuit that a conventional EM analysis cannot reveal. He shows that Tesla’s patented circuits did exactly this.


Barrett extended Tesla’s methods and obtained two patents on the new signaling extension. They are:

     Terence W. Barrett, (1996) "Active Signaling Systems," U.S. Patent No. 5,486,833, Jan. 23, 1996. Filed Apr. 2, 1993. A signaling system in time-frequency space for detecting targets in the presence of clutter and for penetrating media. 14 U.S. patents cited. 22 claims, 37 drawing sheets.

     Terence W. Barrett, "Oscillator-Shuttle-Circuit (OSC) Networks for Conditioning Energy in Higher-Order Symmetry Algebraic Topological Forms and RF Phase Conjugation," U.S. Patent No. 5,493,691. Feb. 20, 1996.


Also see Myron W. Evans,


"O(3) Electrodynamics," in Modern Nonlinear Optics, Second Edition, 3 Vols., edited by M.W. Evans, Wiley, New York, 2001, Part 1, p. 84. Quoting: "…the acceptance of a structured vacuum described by an O(3) gauge group leads directly to the existence of novel charges and currents in the vacuum.  These are conserved, or Noether, currents and charges and are clearly topological in origin.  They spring from the fact that the vacuum is a topological space.  Four such entities emerge: [1] A topological vacuum electric charge, also proposed empirically by Lehnert et al.  [2] A topological vacuum electric current, also proposed empirically by Lehnert et al.  [3] A topological vacuum magnetic charge, proposed also by Barrett and Harmuth.  [4] A vacuum topological magnetic current, proposed also by Barrett and Harmuth. … Each of these four objects can provide energy, which can be loosely termed 'vacuum energy': energy coming from the topology of the vacuum."


Indeed, if our scientific community would just remove the arbitrary Lorentz symmetry condition, that alone would allow rapid solution of the energy crisis. In the hard physics literature, rigorous proof that eliminating the arbitrary Lorentz condition provides systems having free additional energy currents from the vacuum is given by M. W. Evans et al., “Classical Electrodynamics without the Lorentz Condition: Extracting Energy from the Vacuum,” Physica Scripta, Vol. 61, 2000, p. 513-517.


So let us hope that the new advance sparked by Nikolova and Zimmerman flourishes and re-ignites the interest in higher group symmetry electrodynamics. If we would just correct the hoary old electrical engineering (which contains many known falsities), then the world energy crisis could be solved permanently, cheaply, cleanly, and in very short order.



Very best wishes,
