Subject: RE: new paper on a scalar field in electrodynamics
Date: Sat, 22 Sep 2001 01:50:54 -0500

Dear Prof. Van *********** and Dr. ******,

  I'm still suffering from hypoxia in slowly recovering from a heart attack, but was able to get the paper reviewed by an independent and capable scientist. I personally am on a much reduced schedule of activity, by necessity.  Also,  I am more of a conceptualist and inventor than a theorist, and a more competent reviewer was appropriate.

  Below is the reviewer's review. He found there were some questionable conclusions and areas, which at least would require clarification or further theoretical work.  He would encourage you to re-examine the work, change it as necessary to insure its consistency with no non sequiturs, then consider submitting it to a suitable journal for formal publication.

  I wish to encourage you to continue by all means.  As you are well aware, higher algebras such as you are using, are indeed capable of opening many more functions and capabilities in electrodynamics -- including on the laboratory bench and in operational equipment --  than are in the present more limited Maxwell-Heaviside-Lorentz electrodynamics, used in electrical engineering.  Higher group symmetry electrodynamics is already beginning to bear fruit, and it appears that it will have substantial contributions to advancing many facets of science in the future.  Frankly, the only thing slowing the progress is the reluctance of the major part of the scientific community to change from the familiar U(1) electrodynamics model and fund the changes to the more than a century old MHL theory.  There are of course other algebras for EM used in particle physics already. 

  Sadly, some nations seem to already have weaponized higher symmetry electrodynamics, and we may see these weapons actually being used in the long, tough war that the United States has now entered after being so cowardly attacked.  In 1997, our own defense secretary Cohen, at the time, made this statement:

  "Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves… So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations…It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts."  

[Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference sponsored by former Senator Sam Nunn.  Quoted from DoD News Briefing, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, Q&A at the Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and U.S. Strategy, University of Georgia, Athens, Apr. 28, 1997].

I assure you the Secretary knew what he was talking about.  I have personally published photographs of the actual testing of some of these weapons over the United States, by hostile foreign nations.  Many such test incidents have occurred over Europe as well.  There has been no normal weather over North America since July 4, 1976 -- courtesy of a bicentennial present to us by the former Soviet Union. The international terrorism now confronting us is not just by a group of fanatical "guerrillas".  There is a far more insidious backing by several nations.  The world may have just entered WW III and not yet have fully recognized it.

With the O(3) electrodynamics being advanced by the AIAS, e.g., mathematical simulation for the extensive numerical "crunching" is now absolutely essential, and the AIAS is struggling now to get started down that road, in both O(3) and the Sachs unified field theory (which is partially fitted).

The AIAS work has also strongly surfaced the flow of EM energy along the time axis, as has my proposed more conceptual solution to the problem of the source charge (i.e., the problem of the association of the fields and potentials and their energy, associated with a "source charge" which continuously pours out EM energy in 3-space with no 3-space input).  The solution is strongly supported by Mandl and Sachs, Quantum Field Theory, 1984, Chap. 5 and fits Whittaker's 1903 decomposition of the scalar potential if his fundamental "phase conjugate longitudinal EM wavepair" is more correctly reinterpreted.

I attach a listing of some of the O(3) published reports by AIAS, which may be of interest to you and perhaps relevant to what you are doing.  Also one should call attention to the important work of Barrett, Sachs,  and others, that is relevant to this effort as well, and so I have referenced some of those publications also.

Again, please let me encourage you most heartily to continue.  It is a pleasure to see this effort being made.  I deeply wish you every success in your efforts.
