What is "Scalar Electromagnetics"?
By Rick Andersen, 7/3/97
Scalar EM is the brainchild of Lt. Col. (retired)
Thomas E. Bearden, a
systems analyst and wargames specialist who has been advocating a view
of electromagnetics which is based on the notion of a vast, unseen
background of scalar energies (as opposed to vector energies)
which underly all physical reality.
What electrical engineers work with today, claims
Bearden, is a subset of a highertopology EM. Bearden claims that
the four "Maxwell's Equations" taught today in electrical engineering
are actually an oversimplified subset of
Maxwell's original work. The pruning was done by Oliver Heaviside in
the late 19th century; Heaviside took Maxwell's original equations,
written in Hamilton's quaternions (related to what we nowadays call
spinors), and "simplified" them by lopping off the scalar part of the
complex numbers, leaving the easytoworkwith vector part intact
which radio engineers loved. After all, the entire electronics industry
as we know it grew out of the telephone/radio technologies of the early
1900's. Who can argue that the "vector" approach is inadequate?
Well, Bearden says that when Heaviside threw out the
scalar part of the quaternionic EM equation, he unknowingly threw out
the possibility of unifying gravitation with electromagnetism
which has been a holy grail for scientists since Einstein himself
wrestled with the problem. That's because the scalar part of the
quaternion, according to Bearden, was the part that captured or modeled
the "stress on the aether" which leads to curving/warping spacetime a
la Einstein. Tom Bearden says we CAN unify gravity with EM, and convert
back and forth between them, if we understand how vectors and scalars
relate to one another and what the ramifications are.
Vector fields can evidently be assembled by properly
interfering scalar potentials (predicted
in 19034 by mathematician E.T. Whittaker and probably engineered by
the Soviets).
Conversely, scalar fields can be created by
destructively interfering vector fields, in a nonlinear medium. Varying
the vector components rhythmically produces what Bearden calls "scalar
waves". These ripples in spacetime are believed to induce a wavelike
stress in the "aether"; this in turn leads to engineering the
structure of pure space and/or mass in a localized area in other
words, implementing General Relativity (spacetime curvature) on the lab
bench!
Tom Bearden has gone on record, in several of his
books published in the 1980's, to proclaim that the former Soviet Union
had created a fantastic arsenal of mindbending weaponry based on this
scalar technology, which they called "energetics" and which
Bearden claims was developed from certain discarded ideas originated by
Nikola Tesla. Now
that the Cold War is apparently over, we're not sure how Bearden views
his previous assertions, but we note that he has turned his attention
away from Soviet scalar weapons and toward the production of "free
energy" from the vacuum of space, using the principles of optical phase
conjugation, but in a more generalized mode.
Here is the point:
If Bearden is correct in his Scalar EM theory, then we
can build devices which would enable us to alter gravity, time, inertia,
and the apparent mass of an object. This of course has ENORMOUS
implications
for military applications, spacevehicle drives, timetravel,
teleportation, paranormal
phenomena, and just about every other area one can think of.
The Big Question is, Will the 21st century see the
acceptance, development, and implementation of Bearden's ideas (in plain
public view, mind you), or will Scalar EM be found to have been just
another dead end?.... Do certain world governments have these devices
NOW?... Bearden says at least "three other nations, not hostile to the
U.S.," now possess Scalar technology.
