“3.1 Example Cases from the NIDS Database
UFO witness descriptions are the database presently available for
examining the wormhole hypothesis along with the meager physical data
acquired by surveillance equipment (see for example, references 36-39).
And we recognize that witness reports are not rigorous from the
standpoint of collecting physics data. Of the more than 650 cases
investigated by NIDS, several dozen clearly portend wormhole
manifestations. Particular examples include field research NIDS
conducted in northeastern Utah whereby the following example data was
acquired:
Ø intensely bright, colored balls of light under intelligent control;
either monochromatic or changing color; possessing either smooth or
variable liquid turbulence-like surface/internal texture;
maneuvering/hovering near people and around property; brightening or
fading and blue/red Doppler shifting when appearing or disappearing
Ø very large, very bright orange-colored opening in the daytime sky; a
completely different or foreign looking sky was seen through the
opening; an object was seen (through rifle spotting scope) moving
through the opening at rapid speed
Ø faint light appears in the air a few feet above a dirt road; light
grows in intensity becoming very bright; bright light then becomes a
hole that opens up (growing from 1 to 3 feet diameter) and from within
which another light is emanating; a large, black creature (~ 400 lbs., 8
to 9 feet tall) is seen crawling out of the hole (as seen through 3rd
generation military night vision, hole appeared 3-dimensional with
tunnel-like interior), it stood up and ran away into the surrounding
dark of night; the brightly lit hole closed and faded away”

Jack:

1. That’s a delicate distinction. It it walks like a duck, if it talks
like a duck …..

2. Hal’s use of “strong field” looks like “weak field” to me. Both of
youse guys with Yilmaz seem to have been out so long it looks like in to
you.

What do you make of the fact that as implicit in Ibison’s nice little PV
formula

r_c = r_ie^GM/c^2r_i

that for a given r_c, there are an infinity of r_i.

Furthermore, that infinite set of r_i are complex numbers in the limit
r_c -> 0, which is the TRUE “strong field” IMO. Your claim that r_i ->
0, all infinity of them, are strong field is bogus IMO. Indeed, since
r_i -> 0 imply r_c -> infinity this is weak field obviously — in PV terms.

Jack: I agree 100%. So where is the beef.

Show us all right now how Hal using PV has the “ability to make
predictions that keenly match observed phenomena”. I note your use of
the word “keenly” and I call your bluff. Since we are talking about the
alleged phenomena in your MUFON 2001 paper simply show us. You have a
nice little list there of UFO phenomena.
Go down the list and check off how Hal’s PV “keenly” mind you “match
observed phenomena”. Since you said you once saw Hal do this at NIDS
what’s the problem? I am reminded of H… K… at ISSO who kept boasting
he had the solution to vacuum propulsion and release of vacuum energy,
but never allowed any one who could check his claims to see what he
really had in terms of mathematical theory. Do you also claim that The
Men In Black Ops will kill us all if you reveal this information? 😉

So simply put up or shut up. If you can show by correct examples that
Hal’s PV has the “ability to make predictions that keenly match observed
phenomena” then you will win the debate quite obviously. Extraordinary
claims such as yours and Hal’s require extraordinary proof. So far no
proof at all has been forth coming. Simply astound us all! Well? 😉

Jack: I think not since this is what you did write on this:

“There is agreement between Puthoff s PV model and Yilmaz s approach in
theoretical and experimental predictions for cases of interest in GTR
and propulsion”

“The interesting feature of both the PV model and Yilmaz s approach is
they both predict that the endpoint of (large-mass) stellar collapse is
not a black hole, but is instead a  gray hole  possessing neither an
event horizon nor a singularity.”

“We are also exploring the application of the PV model to the Alcubierre
warp metric, and expect K < 1 in this case since it is physically
similar to traversable wormhole physics. However, we cannot predict at
this time what potential alteration to wormhole and/or warp drive
physics either the Yilmaz approach or the PV model will require.

Finally, Puthoff s PV model is the only alternative theory of gravity
that has been successfully applied to explain the physical,
anti-physical and physiological characteristics and performances of UFOs
as described in section 3.2 (48). Puthoff showed that when the data from
section 3.2 and reference 26 are taken together, these characteristics
and performances can be reproduced by craft exploiting a technology that
modifies the local spacetime metric by varying K (K < 1 or K ³ 1) as
needed to generate the desired (propulsion and dynamic maneuvers and
related) effects. It is possible that the PV model can provide either or
both traversable wormhole and warp drive like manifestations within the
context of UFO phenomenon.”

Jack: I see no evidence at all that K < 1 helps in anyway.

Note # 1 Eric Davis’s List of UFO Phenomena

3.0 UFO Phenomenology
Paul Hill has already delineated and characterized UFO performances and
dynamics in his excellent book (26). From a rigorous aeronautical and
physics analysis of many cases (the unexplainable, non-prosaic ones),
Hill concluded that UFOs are craft that would have to utilize an
engineered  acceleration-field  technology in order to manifest their
various performance characteristics.  Acceleration-field  is the old
fashioned term for spacetime metric. Wormhole-stargates and the
Alcubierre warp drive metric (27) are examples of modern spacetime
metric engineering concepts, both of which require engineering of the
vacuum to mine the negative energies needed to generate such metric
modifications.
Jacques Vallee has also analyzed UFO cases over four decades and
summarized his findings in several excellent, groundbreaking books and
articles (28,29,30,31 – the key references). Vallee concluded that UFO
phenomenon is consistent with a technology centered on a craft using a
very revolutionary propulsion system, which possesses an anti-physical
dimension in addition to others. The phenomenon is the product of a
technology in the sense that it is a real, physical, material object.
The physical characteristics of UFOs is as follows (adapted from
28,29,32 and the NIDS database):
Ø witnesses describe an object that occupies a position in space*
Ø moves as time passes*
Ø interacts with the environment through thermal effects as well as
light absorption and emission*
Ø produces turbulence*
Ø when landed, leaves indentations and burns from which approximate
mass/energy figures can be derived*
Ø gives rise to photographic images*
Ø gives rise to electric, magnetic and gravitational disturbances*
But UFOs also manifest anti-physical effects by using advanced physical
principles. These anti-physical effects are as follows (adapted from
28,29 and the NIDS database):
Ø sinking into the ground*
Ø shrink in size, grow larger, or change shape*
Ø becoming fuzzy and transparent on the spot*
Ø divide into two or more craft, several of them merge into one object
at slow speed*
Ø disappearing at one point and appearing elsewhere instantaneously*
Ø remaining observable visually while not detected by radar*
Ø missing time/time dilation*
Ø topological inversion/space dilation (UFO was estimated to be of small
exterior size/volume, but witness(s) saw a huge interior many times the
exterior size)*
Ø balls of colored, intensely bright light under intelligent control*
Ø Doppler blueshifting and redshifting effects of moving and motionless
UFOs*
The physiological reactions caused by UFOs are (adapted from 28,29,32
and the NIDS database):
Ø burns**
Ø sounds (beeping, buzzing, humming, sharp/piercing whistling,
swooshing/air rushing, loud/deafening roaring, sound of a storm, etc.)**
Ø vibrations*
Ø partial paralysis**
Ø extreme heat or cold sensation*
Ø odors (powerful, sweet or strange fragrance, rotten eggs, sulphurous,
pungent, stinking, musky-like, etc.)**
Ø metallic taste**
Ø pricklings**
Ø temporary blindness when exposed to the objects  light*
Ø nausea**
Ø bloody nose and/or ears; severe headache**
Ø difficulty in breathing**
Ø loss of volition**
Ø drowsiness in the days following a close encounter**
There are psychic effects triggered by UFOs either purposely or as a
side effect of the presence of the UFO. These are (adapted from 28,29
and the NIDS database):
Ø impressions of communication w/o direct sensory channel
Ø levitation of the witness or of objects and animals in the vicinity*
Ø poltergeist phenomena: motions and sounds w/o a specific cause,
outside of the observed presence of a UFO
Ø maneuvers of a UFO appearing to anticipate the witness  thoughts
Ø premonitory dreams or visions
Ø personality changes promoting unusual abilities in the witness
Ø healing

UFO witness descriptions are the database presently available for

Note # 2; More complete PV theory remarks

“Puthoff s approach, known as the polarizable-vacuum (PV) representation
of general relativity, treats the vacuum as a polarizable medium (42).
The PV approach treats spacetime metric changes in terms of equivalent
changes in the permittivity and permeability constants of the vacuum, eo
and mo, essentially along the lines of the  THem  methodology used in
comparative studies of gravitational theories (see references cited in
42). Such an approach, relying as it does on parameters familiar to
engineers, can be considered a  metric engineering  approach. Maxwell’s
equations in curved space are treated in the isomorphism of a
polarizable medium of variable refractive index in flat space (see
references cited in 42); the bending of a light ray near a massive body
is modeled as due to an induced spatial variation in the refractive
index of the vacuum near the body; the reduction in the velocity of
light in a gravitational potential is represented by an effective
increase in the refractive index of the vacuum, and so forth. As
elaborated in reference 42 and the references therein, PV modeling can
be carried out in a self-consistent way so as to reproduce to
appropriate order both the equations of GTR, and the match to the
classical experimental (PPN parameters and other) tests of those
equations. There is agreement between Puthoff s PV model and Yilmaz s
approach in theoretical and experimental predictions for cases of
interest in GTR and propulsion.
Specifically, the PV approach treats such measures as the speed of
light, the length of rulers (atomic bond lengths), the frequency of
clocks, particle masses, and so forth, in terms of a variable vacuum
dielectric constant K in which vacuum permittivity eo transforms to eo ®
Keo, vacuum permeability to mo ® Kmo. In a planetary or solar
gravitational potential K > 1 while K = 1 in  empty  remote space. In
the former case, the speed of light is reduced, light emitted from an
atom is redshifted as compared with a remote static atom (K = 1), clocks
run slower, objects/rulers shrink, etc.
The interesting feature of both the PV model and Yilmaz s approach is
they both predict that the endpoint of (large-mass) stellar collapse is
not a black hole, but is instead a  gray hole  possessing neither an
event horizon nor a singularity. Such a body would simply be an
extremely collapsed state of matter. Recent astronomical observations
have reported that neutron stars more massive than the lower limit
collapse mass for black holes have been discovered, which severely
contradicts the strict mass constraints placed on neutron star formation
by Einstein s GTR (46). And it still has not been experimentally
possible to positively confirm black hole candidates on the basis of
predicted strong gravitational field effects occurring outside their
alleged event horizons. No astronomy experiment has positively observed
and measured a black hole s event horizon. And it is impossible to
experimentally confirm the existence of black hole singularities given
the inaccessibility of the black hole s interior to observation and
measurement as predicted by Einstein s GTR. Einstein s GTR is not a
flat-out failure, it is just in need of some repair.
Under certain conditions the spacetime metric can in principle be
modified to reduce the value of K to below unity thus allowing for
faster-than-light (FTL) motion to be physically realized. In this case,
the local speed of light (as measured by remote static observers) is
increased, light emitted from an atom is blueshifted as compared with a
remote static atom, objects/rulers expand, clocks run faster, etc. In
fact, Puthoff has analyzed certain special black hole metrics and found
K < 1 from his model. We are both examining whether the traversable
wormhole metric will also lead to K < 1 within the PV model (46). In
fact, we have reason to believe that there will be such a solution on
the basis that traversable wormhole metrics are an exact metric solution
to Einstein s GTR such that they do not possess
physically/mathematically pathological features such as an event horizon
or singularity. This has been supported by exact high-order nonlinear
quantum electrodynamic analysis of the vacuum cavity within a
Casimir-effect capacitor experiment showing that the speed of light will
in fact increase, as the Casimir-effect energy grows more negative
within the cavity (47). This is what we would expect when a traversable
wormhole effect manifests itself within a region of squeezed vacuum
(recall section 2.6). We are also exploring the application of the PV
model to the Alcubierre warp metric, and expect K < 1 in this case since
it is physically similar to traversable wormhole physics. However, we
cannot predict at this time what potential alteration to wormhole and/or
warp drive physics either the Yilmaz approach or the PV model will require.
Finally, Puthoff s PV model is the only alternative theory of gravity
that has been successfully applied to explain the physical,
anti-physical and physiological characteristics and performances of UFOs
as described in section 3.2 (48). Puthoff showed that when the data from
section 3.2 and reference 26 are taken together, these characteristics
and performances can be reproduced by craft exploiting a technology that
modifies the local spacetime metric by varying K (K < 1 or K ³ 1) as
needed to generate the desired (propulsion and dynamic maneuvers and
related) effects. It is possible that the PV model can provide either or
both traversable wormhole and warp drive like manifestations within the
context of UFO phenomenon.”
