THE RESONANT VELOCITY OF SPACE
by Rick Andersen
A Keelynet listing called GRAVITY2.ZIP (10/17/90) presented an unpublished paper by John R. Majka called "A Different Point of View".
There the hypothesis was set forth that the ratio of magnetic-to- electric field "seen" by an observer of a charged particle is a function of the relative motion between the particle and observer.
Also, that the magnetic permeability of free space and the electric permittivity thereof are analogous to the distributed inductance and capacitance, respectively, of a transmission line.
This leads to the suggestion that a transmission line's RESONANCE, which depends on its inductance (L) and capacitance (C), corresponds to a RESONANT VELOCITY of free space, that velocity being the speed of light (2.998E8 meters/sec). For the implications of this hypothesis, see the file GRAVITY2.ZIP.
This file serves as an addendum to J. Majka's paper. Evidently Majka is not the first to seriously consider the "resonant velocity" idea.
In 1986, Prentice-Hall, Inc. published a college-level textbook entitled "Waveforms: a modern guide to nonsinusoidal waves and nonlinear processes", by Homer B. Tilton (ISBN 0-13-946096-9).
On page 66 Tilton introduces the concept of "super resonance", in which he discusses a dual oscillator system (two pendulums). On page 67 he illustrates a theoretical electrical version of the dual pendulums-- dual L-C tank circuits coupled together through back-to- back zener diodes.
Tilton claims that, if the resonant circuits are excited in their linear regions, below a certain threshold, each L-C tank (or pendulum) will oscillate at its own independent resonant frequency.
But when they are OVERDRIVEN into the nonlinear region, they will act as if they had been tuned to a higher frequency simply as a result of the NEW MODE OF EXCITATION. I now quote directly from Tilton, pp. 67,68:
THE 'RESONANT SPEED OF SPACE'
The constancy of the speed of light in free space leads to the now-classic equation of special relativity, gamma=(1-beta^2) ^(-1/2), which describes relativistic effects, with beta being 'normalized velocity'. Among these effects are 'space contraction', 'time dilation', and 'mass increase with velocity'.
That equation for gamma can be 'explained' by likening the speed of light in free space to a resonance condition.
An electronic circuit analogy was announced by Schelkunoff in 1938 [footnote 1] in which it was shown that the intrinsic impedance of free space is analogous to the characteristic impedance of a network, and the Q of a lossy medium is analogous to the Q of a network. That analog is in common use today in antenna design.
That electronic circuit analogy has been developed further by the author [Tilton] in accordance with the ideas that the permittivity and permeability of free space are analogous to the capacitance and inductance, respectively, of a tuned circuit. In this extension of the analogy, the speed of light becomes analogous to the resonant frequency of a tuned circuit [footnote 2].
While apparently it is not possible to decrease the value of either the permittivity or permeability of free space and thereby 'tune' it to a higher 'resonant speed', the following question nevertheless presents itself: Can a region of free space be EFFECTIVELY tuned to a higher resonant speed by exciting it in the manner of the binary systems described above? This question remains unanswered.
So we see that John Majka seems to be in good company with other scientists who have been pondering this idea at least as far back as the 1930's.
As food for thought, I'd like to pose the question: Is it possible that the notorious Philadelphia Experiment utilized these principles to warp space-time in 1943?
Tilton speaks of possibly "raising" the resonant speed of space -- but what about LOWERING it?
If Einstein was correct in saying that a mass cannot be accelerated all the way up to light speed, can we perhaps "cheat" by bringing DOWN the effective speed of light in a given area of space?
It would seem that by manipulating electromagnetics properly we might be able to alter the properties of a region of space and thus be able to perform all sorts of strange magic tricks.
Any comments relating to these points are welcome!
