Dear Dr. Popov,

In answer to your questions:

Our website personnel are arranging a different order form for your Physics Department now.

On the scalar waves:  With additional research they have become a bit more complicated.  First, if one reinterprets Whittaker's 1903 decomposition of the scalar potential, it is a harmonic set of bidirectional longitudinal phase conjugate EM wavepairs.  Interestingly, at least prior to observation (reaction with charged matter), one of his bidirectional phase conjugate longitudinal wavepairs --- in 4-space --- would seem to be a paired set of waves, but consisting of (1) a longitudinal EM wave on the time axis (which is a time-polarized EM wave) and (2) a longitudinal EM wave in 3-space.

This would then be consistent with quantum field theory, where (in photon terms) the time-polarized (scalar) photon combined with the longitudinal photon is observable as the instantaneous scalar potential.  Neither the scalar photon nor the longitudinal photon is individually observable.

So it appears that what I called "scalar waves" back in 1983 is indeed such a revised Whittaker pair, which is slightly different from Whittaker's original interpretation.

Evans et al. have also published several papers dealing with the Whittaker work, one of which shows that scalar interferometry does indeed produce "ordinary" transverse EM waves as we assumed in the late 1970s.  That paper is in the group of 60 AIAS papers by M.W. Evans et al., comprising the Journal of New Energy, 4(3), Special Issue, Winter 1999.

I hope you enjoy the Energy from the Vacuum book and find it useful.

Very best wishes,

Tom Bearden

Dear Dr. Bearden,

My name is Dmitri P***. Anatoly Pavlovich Smirnov, the chairman of the late Congress-2000 and Congress-2002 in St.-Petersburg, Russia, introduced me to your work, and I found your website on the internet.

This is really unbelievable that you were able to compile this amount of information, as I understand now, not freely given away or available from the libraries.

I have two questions to you now, but will have more (if you don't mind) in the future. (1) First question about your recent book "Energy from the Vacuum". I convinced our Physics Department to order it, but the problem is that on the order page it's explicitly stated that "tax is included", and the University is tax-exempt. The problem is not a couple of dollars, but the problem that may arise if the order is to be audited. Can we order the book some other way (not through the web-page), or use some other form which doesn't say that tax is included? (2) The reference in your Scalar Electromagnetics material - several publications on the webpage stops approximately at 1983. Do you have recent publications and/or presentations available on Tesla waves?

May be I missed several publications - you have lots of material on your website. 

Thank you very much,


Dmitri P****
