If, in a meta-material the magnetic permeability is positive while the electrical permittivity is negative for some frequency and wave vector bands then the impedance will be purely reactance phase shift between voltage and current, i.e. Z pure imaginary (phase shift of 90 deg from infinite argument of the arctan). The effective Ohmic resistance in AC  circuits in this case would seem to be zero like in a superconductor. There should be no Ohmic heating in this regime. Indeed, the speed of light itself is formally imaginary, but that is of no consequence here since we are only dealing with the non-radiating virtual photons in the reactive near field of the capacitor-inductive "propellantless propulsion circuit" and also, perhaps, for lossless electrical power transmission lines over long distances?
Note that random virtual photons are a form of zero point vacuum fluctuations, but the near fields are non-random Glauber macro-quantum coherent states of immense numbers of virtual off-mass-shell photons f =/= ck all in the same region of f-k space.

Not One, Not Two, Not Three, but Four Clones: First Quantum Cloning Machine to Produce Four Copies

ScienceDaily (Nov. 6, 2011) — Xi-Jun Ren and Yang Xiang from Henan Universities in China, in collaboration with Heng Fan at the Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, have produced a theory for a quantum cloning machine able to produce several copies of the state of a particle at atomic or sub-atomic scale, or quantum state, in an article about to be published in The European Physical Journal D. The advance could have implications for quantum information processing methods used, for example, in message encryption systems.

Quantum cloning is difficult because quantum mechanics laws only allow for an approximate copy—not an exact copy—of an original quantum state to be made, as measuring such a state prior to its cloning would alter it.

In this study, researchers have demonstrated that it is theoretically possible to create four approximate copies of an initial quantum state, in a process called asymmetric cloning. The authors have extended previous work that was limited to quantum cloning providing only two or three copies of the original state. One key challenge was that the quality of the approximate copy decreases as the number of copies increases.

The authors were able to optimise the quality of the cloned copies, thus yielding four good approximations of the initial quantum state. They have also demonstrated that their quantum cloning machine has the advantage of being universal and therefore is able to work with any quantum state, ranging from a photon to an atom.

Sorry, but it does not explain what Russell Targ was talking about at the AAAS Retrocausality Meeting at USD, e.g. was it Pat Price or Ingo Swann precognizing the bad burn of the Chinese nuclear test days before it happened? Of course, maybe CIA special ops was able to sabotage the test? ;-) Even that could not account for what happened however according to Russell's account.

Signal nonlocality is much stronger than what is contemplated below. Of course it violates quantum theory.

Novikov self-consistency principle
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Novikov_self-consistency_principle

The Novikov self-consistency principle,
also known as the Novikov self-consistency
conjecture, is a principle developed by
Russian physicist Igor Dmitriyevich Novikov
in the mid-1980s to solve the problem of
paradoxes in time travel, which is
theoretically permitted in certain solutions
of general relativity (solutions containing
what are known as closed timelike curves).
Stated simply, the Novikov consistency
principle asserts that if an event exists
that would give rise to a paradox, or to
any "change" to the past whatsoever, then
the probability of that event is zero.
In short, it says that it's impossible
to create time paradoxes.

History of the principle
Physicists have long been aware that there
are solutions to the theory of general
relativity which contain closed timelike
curves, or CTCs--see for example the
Godel metric. Novikov discussed the
possibility of CTCs in books written in
1975 and 1983, offering the opinion that
only self-consistent trips back in time
would be permitted. In a 1990 paper by
Novikov and several others, Cauchy problem
in spacetimes with closed timelike curves,
the authors state:

The only type of causality violation that
the authors would find unacceptable is
that embodied in the science-fiction
concept of going backward in time and
killing one's younger self ("changing the
past"). Some years ago one of us
(Novikov10) briefly considered the
possibility that CTCs might exist and
argued that they cannot entail this type
of causality violation: Events on a CTC
are already guaranteed to be self-consistent,
Novikov argued; they influence each other
around a closed curve in a self-adjusted,
cyclical, self-consistent way. The other
authors recently have arrived at the
same viewpoint.

We shall embody this viewpoint in a principle
of self-consistency, which states that the only
solutions to the laws of physics that can occur
locally in the real Universe are those which
are globally self-consistent. This principle
allows one to build a local solution to the
equations of physics only if that local solution
can be extended to a part of a (not necessarily
unique) global solution, which is well defined
throughout the nonsingular regions of
the spacetime.

Among the coauthors of this 1990 paper were Kip Thorne,
Mike Morris, and Ulvi Yurtsever, who in 1988 had
stirred up renewed interest in the subject of time
travel in general relativity with their paper Wormholes,
Time Machines, and the Weak Energy Condition, which
showed that a new general relativity solution known
as a traversable wormhole could lead to closed timelike
curves, and unlike previous CTC-containing solutions
it did not require unrealistic conditions for the
universe as a whole. After discussions with another
coauthor of the 1990 paper, John Friedman, they
convinced themselves that time travel need not lead
to unresolvable paradoxes, regardless of what type
of object was sent through the wormhole.

In response, another physicist named Joseph Polchinski
sent them a letter in which he argued that one could
avoid questions of free will by considering a
potentially paradoxical situation involving a billiard
ball sent through a wormhole which sends it back in
time. In this scenario, the ball is fired into a
wormhole at an angle such that, if it continues along
that path, it will exit the wormhole in the past at
just the right angle to collide with its earlier self,
thereby knocking it off course and preventing it from
entering the wormhole in the first place.
Thorne deemed this problem "Polchinski's paradox".

After considering the problem, two students at
Caltech (where Thorne taught), Fernando Echeverria
and Gunnar Klinkhammer, were able to find a solution
beginning with the original billiard ball trajectory
proposed by Polchinski which managed to avoid any
inconsistencies. In this situation, the billiard ball
emerges from the future at a different angle than
the one used to generate the paradox, and delivers
its younger self a glancing blow instead of knocking
it completely away from the wormhole, a blow which
changes its trajectory in just the right way so that
it will travel back in time with the angle required
to deliver its younger self this glancing blow.
Echeverria and Klinkhammer actually found that
there was more than one self-consistent solution,
with slightly different angles for the glancing
blow in each case. Later analysis by Thorne and
Robert Forward showed that for certain initial
trajectories of the billiard ball, there could
actually be an infinite number of self-consistent
solutions.

Echeverria, Klinkhammer and Thorne published a
paper discussing these results in 1991; in a
ddition, they reported that they had tried to
see if they could find any initial conditions
for the billiard ball for which there were no
self-consistent extensions, but were unable to
do so. Thus it is plausible that there exist
self-consistent extensions for every possible
initial trajectory, although this has not been
proven. This only applies to initial conditions
which are outside of the chronology-violating
region of spacetime,[8] which is bounded by a
Cauchy horizon. This could mean that the Novikov
self-consistency principle does not actually
place any constraints on systems outside of the
region of spacetime where time travel is
possible, only inside it. [...] CONT...

Stephen Hawking has conjectured that time

It's my opinion that the good flying saucer

Progress Toward the Dream of Space Drives and Stargates
by Paul Gilster on May 23, 2011

by James F. Woodward

I first wrote about James Woodward's work
in my 2004 book Centauri Dreams: Imagining and
Planning Interstellar Exploration, and have
often been asked since to comment further on
his research. But it's best to leave that to
the man himself, and I'm pleased to turn today's
post over to him. [...]
[...] Guided by Mach's principle and Luchak's
Newtonian approximation for gravity -- and a
simple calculation done by Dennis Sciama in his
doctoral work for Paul Dirac in the early
1950s -- it is possible to show that when
extended massive objects are accelerated, if
their "internal" energies change during the
accelerations, fluctuations in their masses
should occur. That's the purchase on gravity
and inertia you need. (Ironically, though these
effects are not obviously present in the field
equations of GRT or electrodynamics, they do not
depend on any novel coupling of those fields.

JS:
___________________________________________

The above is hard to reconcile with qft's
point particle model. The only extended
structure is the dressing cloud of virtual
particle plasma. I have shown that the
induced gravity from the virtual particles
is strong enough to stabilize an extended
thin shell of (electro-weak-strong) charges
independent of the qed Casimir force.
___________________________________________


So, no "new physics" is required.) But that
alone is not enough. You need two more things.
First, you need experimental results that show
that this theorizing actually corresponds to
reality. And second, you need to show how
"Mach effects" can be used to make the Jupiter
masses of exotic matter needed for stargates
and warp drives. This can only be done with a
theory of matter that includes gravity.
The Standard Model of serious physics, alas,
does not include gravity. A model for matter
that includes gravity was constructed in 1960
by three physicists of impeccable credentials.
They are Richard Arnowitt (Texas A and M),
Stanley Deser (Brandeis), and Charles Misner
(U. of Maryland). Their "ADM" model can be
adapted to answer the question: Does some
hideously large amount of exotic matter lie
shrouded in the normal matter we deal with
every day? Were the answer to this question
"no", you probably wouldn't be reading this.
Happily, the argument about the nature of
matter and the ADM model that bears on the
wormhole problem can be followed with little
more than high school algebra. And it may be
that shrouded in everyday stuff all around us,
including us, is the Jupiter mass of exotic
matter we want. Should it be possible to expose
the exotic bare masses of the elementary
particles that make up normal matter, then
stargates may lie in our future -- and if in
our future, perhaps our present and past
as well. [...]

___________________________________________

___________________________________________

Therefore, Hawking admits that although
time travel to the past is impossible,
time travel to the future is easily done.
Simply approach the speed of light, and
as your clocks slow down, relative to the
outside, the reality outside speeds up.
Balance is compensated with relativity
in space-time. To be fair, Prof. Hawking
did not mention the notion of parallel
realities and bifurcating timelines.
The 'Parallel Universe' theory is the only
theory that allows time travel to the past,
but the illusion of 'past' time travel
is compensated for by leaving the timeline
entirely; so, technically, the past is
an illusion, merely another parallel
reality not within the timeline in which
you started. In other words, the only way
to travel backwards is to jump onto an
entirely different timeline which creates
the illusion of traveling backwards.
The arrow of time is not violated, and
you lose track of your original timeline,
existing thereafter in a parallel, seemingly
'past' timeline (assuming the reality isn't
completely divergent!)  At its core, 'time'
really is illusory. Einstein said it
didn't really exist, but was a human
cognitive construct. All we ever really
know is now. We can only travel in the now,
creating various illusions along the way.

[SEE: 'Into The Universe with Stephen Hawking'
http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/stephen-hawking/ ]

I guess that wonderful notion of 'us'
jumping into a time machine to take a
look at what Ezekiel saw way back when
and realizing he saw us in our time
machine, was really less about going
backwards and more about going SIDEWAYS
onto a parallel track where a parallel
Ezekiel existed contemporaneously with
'us.' Hmmmm...  Quoting Saul Paul Sirag:

"There's been some speculation that the
Ezekiel vision was of what we today would
call a flying saucer. In other words, an
object of advanced technology.
It's hard to know one way or another,
but I've been wondering if it was not
a time machine of some sort. Recently
in Physical Review Abstracts (D 15 March
1974) there was a report [by Frank Tipler]
of the possibility of time travel by means
of a rotating cylinder. It would be odd
if we were to go in such a time machine
to visit Ezekiel's time and place.
We could do this, because we know the
day he saw his vision, since he carefully
recorded the time (a date equivalent to
July 5, 592 BCE give or take a day) and
place. It would be odd if in doing
this -- to have a peek at Ezekiel's
vision it turned out that what Ezekiel
saw was just us in our time machine
trying to have a peek at his vision."

So, in a Multiverse, given a near infinite number
of earths, (and Ezekiels), e.g. Earth Prime,
Earth^2, Earth^3, Earth^4... all at various
waveform manifestations with separate timelines,
we could conceivably convince ourselves of all
sorts of possibilities as they might apply to the
illusory nature of time travel. Perhaps we'll
figure this all out, in time...? AND...

Yes...
The curiosity of 'entropy,' light speed, time dilation,
etc., according to relativity, quite proven by GPS
satellite's onboard clocks slightly out of phase with
earth surface clocks, and myriad's of other cosmological,
quantum mechanical anti-intuitive shenanigans, verified;
time travel, apparently is limited to future travel
only... Curiouser and curiouser, however, the speed of
light is, yea verily, limited to approx. 186,000 miles
per second in 'SPACE' - lovely inflating invisible space,
created, it seems, following the inflationary big bang
dohicky, inflating, by the way, FASTER than the speed of
light! Is that not interesting?  That space itself may
expand faster than the speed of light, while the light
within the superluminal inflation of space maintains
its photonic speed limit!  Therefore, if one could
perhaps circumvent 'space,' one could circumvent the
speed of light?  Definitely not a technology for
beginner fire apes. Seeya 'round the mountain!

Then there are the leptons: electrons,
electron neutrinos and their antiparticles,
the positron and electron antineutrino; the
muon, which looks in every way just like an
electron except that it is heavier, its muon
neutrino, and their two antiparticles; and the
tau particle, which is just a fat muon,

Finally, we have the set of six quarks,
which come in six flavors and three TV-colors,

Hawking's Objection

Stephen Hawking has conjectured that time
travel to the past is not possible because
quantum gravity effects will destroy the
wormhole star gate time machine. His friend
Kip Thorne is not so sure that is the case.
It's my opinion that the good flying saucer
evidence shows that Hawking is wrong.
Indeed, the extraterrestrials may well be
our future descendants coming back in time
to make sure they exist. Igor Novikov calls
this a consistent loop in time.  [...]

Progress Toward the Dream of Space Drives and Stargates
by Paul Gilster on May 23, 2011

by James F. Woodward

I first wrote about James Woodward's work
in my 2004 book Centauri Dreams: Imagining and
Planning Interstellar Exploration, and have
often been asked since to comment further on
his research. But it's best to leave that to
the man himself, and I'm pleased to turn today's
post over to him. [...]
[...] Guided by Mach's principle and Luchak's
Newtonian approximation for gravity -- and a
simple calculation done by Dennis Sciama in his
doctoral work for Paul Dirac in the early
1950s -- it is possible to show that when
extended massive objects are accelerated, if
their "internal" energies change during the
accelerations, fluctuations in their masses
should occur. That's the purchase on gravity
and inertia you need. (Ironically, though these
effects are not obviously present in the field
equations of GRT or electrodynamics, they do not
depend on any novel coupling of those fields.


"The above is hard to reconcile with qft's point particle model.
The only extended structure is the dressing cloud of virtual particle plasma.
I have shown that the induced gravity from the virtual particles is
strong enough to stabilize an extended thin shell of (electro-weak-strong) charges
independent of the qed Casimir force." - comment by Jack Sarfatti


So, no "new physics" is required.) But that
alone is not enough. You need two more things.
First, you need experimental results that show
that this theorizing actually corresponds to
reality. And second, you need to show how
"Mach effects" can be used to make the Jupiter
masses of exotic matter needed for stargates
and warp drives. This can only be done with a
theory of matter that includes gravity.
The Standard Model of serious physics, alas,
does not include gravity. A model for matter
that includes gravity was constructed in 1960
by three physicists of impeccable credentials.
They are Richard Arnowitt (Texas A and M),
Stanley Deser (Brandeis), and Charles Misner
(U. of Maryland). Their "ADM" model can be
adapted to answer the question: Does some
hideously large amount of exotic matter lie
shrouded in the normal matter we deal with
every day? Were the answer to this question
"no", you probably wouldn't be reading this.
Happily, the argument about the nature of
matter and the ADM model that bears on the
wormhole problem can be followed with little
more than high school algebra. And it may be
that shrouded in everyday stuff all around us,
including us, is the Jupiter mass of exotic
matter we want. Should it be possible to expose
the exotic bare masses of the elementary
particles that make up normal matter, then
stargates may lie in our future -- and if in
our future, perhaps our present and past
as well. [...]

FIRST ADDENDUM

(( MEANWHILE... [Circa: June 2010]... eMpTy ))

Prof. Hawking most recently said that
Time Travel was only possible to the
future, because Time Travel to
the past is fraught with paradox.
He used the example of a man who
builds a time machine that takes him
back in time 2 minutes before he
'steps into the time machine.' If he
subsequently 'prevents' the man that
is his 'past self' from stepping into
the time machine, then the man who does
the time traveling cannot possibly
exist to perform this action. Paradox.

"This is a Red Herring as shown by Kip Thorne, Igor Novikov et-al. "- comment by Jack Sarfatti

Therefore, Hawking admits that although
time travel to the past is impossible,
time travel to the future is easily done.
Simply approach the speed of light, and
as your clocks slow down, relative to the
outside, the reality outside speeds up.
Balance is compensated with relativity
in space-time. To be fair, Prof. Hawking
did not mention the notion of parallel
realities and bifurcating timelines.
The 'Parallel Universe' theory is the only
theory that allows time travel to the past,
but the illusion of 'past' time travel
is compensated for by leaving the timeline
entirely; so, technically, the past is
an illusion, merely another parallel
reality not within the timeline in which
you started. In other words, the only way
to travel backwards is to jump onto an
entirely different timeline which creates
the illusion of traveling backwards.
The arrow of time is not violated, and
you lose track of your original timeline,
existing thereafter in a parallel, seemingly
'past' timeline (assuming the reality isn't
completely divergent!)  At its core, 'time'
really is illusory. Einstein said it
didn't really exist, but was a human
cognitive construct. All we ever really
know is now. We can only travel in the now,
creating various illusions along the way.

[SEE: 'Into The Universe with Stephen Hawking'
http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/stephen-hawking/ ]

I guess that wonderful notion of 'us'
jumping into a time machine to take a
look at what Ezekiel saw way back when
and realizing he saw us in our time
machine, was really less about going
backwards and more about going SIDEWAYS
onto a parallel track where a parallel
Ezekiel existed contemporaneously with
'us.' Hmmmm...  Quoting Saul Paul Sirag:

"There's been some speculation that the
Ezekiel vision was of what we today would
call a flying saucer. In other words, an
object of advanced technology.
It's hard to know one way or another,
but I've been wondering if it was not
a time machine of some sort. Recently
in Physical Review Abstracts (D 15 March
1974) there was a report [by Frank Tipler]
of the possibility of time travel by means
of a rotating cylinder. It would be odd
if we were to go in such a time machine
to visit Ezekiel's time and place.
We could do this, because we know the
day he saw his vision, since he carefully
recorded the time (a date equivalent to
July 5, 592 BCE give or take a day) and
place. It would be odd if in doing
this -- to have a peek at Ezekiel's
vision it turned out that what Ezekiel
saw was just us in our time machine
trying to have a peek at his vision."
-- Saul-Paul Sirag (May 1974)
home.netcom.com/~mthorn/quad4b.htm

So, in a Multiverse, given a near infinite number
of earths, (and Ezekiels), e.g. Earth Prime,
Earth^2, Earth^3, Earth^4... all at various
waveform manifestations with separate timelines,
we could conceivably convince ourselves of all
sorts of possibilities as they might apply to the
illusory nature of time travel. Perhaps we'll
figure this all out, in time...? AND...

Yes...
The curiosity of 'entropy,' light speed, time dilation,
etc., according to relativity, quite proven by GPS
satellite's onboard clocks slightly out of phase with
earth surface clocks, and myriad's of other cosmological,
quantum mechanical anti-intuitive shenanigans, verified;
time travel, apparently is limited to future travel
only... Curiouser and curiouser, however, the speed of
light is, yea verily, limited to approx. 186,000 miles
per second in 'SPACE' - lovely inflating invisible space,
created, it seems, following the inflationary big bang
dohicky, inflating, by the way, FASTER than the speed of
light! Is that not interesting?  That space itself may
expand faster than the speed of light, while the light
within the superluminal inflation of space maintains
its photonic speed limit!  Therefore, if one could
perhaps circumvent 'space,' one could circumvent the
speed of light?  Definitely not a technology for
beginner fire apes. Seeya 'round the mountain!

P.S.  Positive bare mass electron models are constrained to radii of the Compton wavelength to avoid superluminal surface velocities in generating the magnetic moment and angular momentum. . . .  Electrons, though, are known to be R < 10^-16 cm.  Negative bare mass solves this problem.


JS: That ain't necessarily so. You must include quantum theory. The shell of charge as a Bohm hidden variable in a quantum potential Q has zero point vacuum fluctuations. The Compton radius is the rough boundary of the virtual plasma dressing cloud of off-mass-shell electron-positron pairs and off-mass-shell photons (+ everything else with smaller effect). So the shell of charge can be smaller than the Compton radius - no problem. Indeed, Puthoff's mechanism would be one factor outside the shell of charge. That is the increased density of virtual photons relative to virtual electron-positron pairs outside the shell of charge works cooperatively with the opposite inside the shell of charge. Remember I am talking of the w = -1 induced ZPF gravity not the QED Casimir force. I think Puthoff only includes the latter. Both are there in reality.

Therefore, I say that Deser's negative bare mass model is not needed.

The quote you clip from Price below is intended to illustrate the sometimes very counterintuitive behavior of negative mass matter when the central point of Price's comments is followed: if any of the masses -- active, passive, or inertial -- is known to be negative, then the Equivalence Principle requires that all of the masses are negative.


Agreed.


By the way, this fact invalidates several analyses of propulsion using "mass modification" where this criterion is explicitly violated in order to recover results that purport to show that "mass modification" won't work.

??? Examples?

My general points against mass modification are

1) F = DP/ds = MDV/ds + VDM/ds

the 2nd term on RHS is a g-force rocket term even if no propellant is ejected i.e. it's not a zero g-force warp drive.


2) Even if you arrange M ---> M - &M

you will not gain very much advantage.

M drops out altogether in Warp Drive WP since the whole idea of WP is that the ship controls its own timelike geodesic with small amounts of power using perhaps my superconducting metamaterial idea where the electric permittivity is huge and negative.

From Barrow & Tipler & Martin Rees "Just Six Numbers" you cannot tinker very much with e/m ratios without causing havoc and if you only tinker with chemical binding energies they are too small and you are in danger of killing your crew and having equipment malfunction.

3) No practical way to do it - unless Jim's Mach generator works and can be scaled up. Cannot fool with the Higgs field as shown by Lenny Susskind in his Landscape book I seem to recall.

Price's example: a negative mass test particle is launched toward a positive mass container.  As the test particle approaches the container it experiences a repulsive gravitational force (as that is the result of the interaction of negative and positive sources).  The negativity of the inertial mass of the test particle, however, makes it accelerate toward the container.  When it impacts the container, it experiences an even greater repulsive force, which increases its acceleration toward the container.  As Price remarks, the eventual penetration of the container is inevitable.  No stability.

What about negative bare mass ADM electrons?  First, note that positive bare mass electrons do not have stable finite radii solutions.  But their masses at zero radius are finite (and equal to [e^2/G]^1/2).

False as I showed here:

In my model, I am not clear about Puthoff's, it's the gravity generated by the virtual particle plasma cloud that stabilizes the positive rest mass electron with finite radius.

simple toy model neglect rotation for now, a static, spherically symmetric metric (static LNIF)

shell of charge of radius r

g00 = 1 + V/c^2

Vcharge = e^2/mr

gcharge = Fcharge/m = - dVcharge/dr = + e^2/mr^2 repulsive unstable

The interior of the thin shell of charge has vacuum zero point fluctuation virtual particle plasma with an effective potential

VZPF = -/\r^2

gZPF = - dVZPF/dr = +2/\r

the AdS case /\ < 0 gives the compensating stabilizing attraction. We get this when the density of virtual electron-positron pairs inside the shell exceeds the density of virtual photons. The excess of virtual photons outside the charged shell will work in an implosive manner similar to what Puthoff proposes - but again this is purely gravity w = -1 for ZPF not electromagnetic Casimir at all. That will be there too of course as a secondary effect.

V = VZPF + Vcharge = - /\r^2 + e^2/mr

Equilibrium is when

dV/dr = 0

-2/\r - e^2/mr^2 = 0

-2/\r*^3 = e^2/m

/\ < 0  (AdS)

r* = (e^2/2m|/\|)^1/3

stability of the equilibrium is a positive second derivative, i.e.

-2/\ - 2e^2/mr*^3 > 0

-2/\ - 2/\e^2/m/2e^2/m = -3/\ > 0

-------------------------------------------------

JW: The negative bare mass version differs from Price's container example because the electrically charged dust of the ADM negative bare mass model has both active and passive masses negative.  This means that as the electrical action of one part of the dust on another produces a force of repulsion (like charges and all that), the result, because of the negativity of the inertial mass of all of the parts, is for the dust to accelerate toward, not away from, the center of the dust.  That is, the electrical self-energy, instead of being positive as usual, becomes negative like normal positive mass gravity.  Note that this interaction is linear in the sense that the electric charge is unaffected by the interaction.

JS: OK, but I need to see the algebra.

e^2/r = -md^2r/dt^2

Yes, OK so now with two like charges, and at least one of them is negative inertial mass, you get attractive electric force OK

If the other equal sign charge is positive inertial mass we have Bondi self-acceleration - I think?


In the case of the gravitational self-energy of the dust, the negativity of all of the dust gives a force of attraction (minus active times minus passive) as for positive masses.  But that force acts on material with negative inertial mass.  So the effect of the attracive force is to make the dust expand, rather than contract.  That is, the self-energy is effectively positive rather than negative because of the negativity of the inertial mass.  Note that the gravitational self-energy remains non-linear in the sense that the mass in the quadratic term of the ADM solution is the total mass, not just the bare mass.

Since the effective self-energy terms in the ADM solution are still of opposite sign and the gravitational mass is non-linear, configurations where the two terms cancel for the dust distribution with non-zero radius are possible.  If such a distribution is perturbed toward collapse, the effectively repulsive non-linear gravitational force will begin to exceed the strength of the electrical force which is not non-linear.  If the dust is perturbed outward, the effectively attractive electrical force will become larger than the non-linearly decreasing effective gravitational force, and the dust will experience a net force that tends to restore the original configuration.  So, finite radii dust distributions where the forces balance are stable.

Plausible I need to think about it more, would like to see the algebra, but it sounds right.

Now, for the negative bare mass ADM model to return a realistic value for the electron mass, the dust must lie very close its gravitational radius (so that the gravitational potential of the dust bare mass almost exactly cancels the gravitational potential of the universe -- as explained in MUSH and the Stargates papers.  Since electrons have small finite positive masses, somehow this configuration must occur and be maintained.  How this might happen was not explained in MUSH -- because though I thought I knew what must be going on, an algebraic error diverted me into frustrating blind alleys.

The problem is: what constitutes the criterion for minimum energy?  With the positive mass assumption, the answer is simple: zero.  Or the quantum zero point value (not without problems of its own I note).  Allowing negative mass means allowing negative energy, and that complicated minimum energy (a problem Dirac struggled with).  The obvious conjecture is that allowing negative energy seriously louses things up because energy then is not bounded from below.  You can try to finese this by claiming that minimum energy should still be taken as zero and that something like the absolute value of energy is the important consideration in minimum energy.  I wouldn't try selling that to anyone though.

The situation for the negative mass ADM model is analogous to the nuclear atom problem.  The missing piece is quantum mechanics. 

Bohm's quantum potential Q should save the day?

You need the analog of the Bohr conjecture that the minimum energy is that where the electric charge has one quantum of angular momentum.  Otherwise there is no reason for the dust not to coalesce at R = 0 and display a classic ADM mass (21 orders of magnitude larger than the observed electron mass).  That's what got worked out a year and a half ago and put into the Stargates paper.

If this is right, then hidden in a modest amount of normal matter is a Jupiter mass of exotic matter.  And it can be exposed by screening that matter from the gravitational action of the distant matter in the universe. . . .

Not if G gets huge on the small scale of a fermi as in Abdus Salam's f-gravity and in some modern models of extra space dimensions. You can cut Jupiter mass down by about 40 powers of ten from 10^27 kg to 10^-13 kg = 10^-9 grams.

* Abstract
The dark energy accelerating our observable patch of the multiverse is Wheeler-Feynman Hawking-Unruh black body radiation back from our future de Sitter cosmological horizon. This horizon is also a hologram computer along the lines suggested by Seth Lloyd at MIT. The Stefan-Boltzmann-Planck blackbody radiation law is that the energy density ~ T^4, therefore, as expected, the advanced Wheeler-Feynman Hawking radiation density at the future horizon is the Planck value hc/LP^4 and it is redshifted back from our future to us at hc/\/LP^2.

* Abstract
Quantum entanglement cannot be used as a communication channel without an auxiliary light speed limited classical key to unlock the message at the receiver? Hermitian observables guarantee orthogonal sender base states that erase any nonlocal influence of the sender settings on the detection probabilities at the receiver. However, this is no longer true when the entangled whole has different macro-quantum coherent Glauber sender states. Glauber states are non-orthogonal eigenstates of the non-Hermitian photon destruction operator. The Born probability interpretation breaks down because of "phase rigidity" (P.W. Anderson's "More is different"). This is a new regime that is to orthodox quantum theory what general relativity is to special relativity. Antony Valentini has argued that the breakdown of the Born probability rule entails "signal non locality" (aka entanglement signals). The space-time interval between the sending and the receiving irreversible measurements is irrelevant depending only on the free will of the local observers. That is, this is a pre-metrical topological information effect. There is asymmetry between the sending and the receiving. Therefore, there is no ambiguity between active (retro) cause and passive effect. In particular a message can be decoded back from the future before it is sent, but only if it will be sent in a globally self-consistent Novikov time loop.
