As we drove I-75 between Ellington, Florida and Lexington, Kentucky, I was struck by the countless cell-phone towers. I could not help but think that zero-point energy (ZPE) would be a better way of communicating, even across the United States. The purpose of this article is to share what I have learned about ZPE over the past 30 years as it might be applied to communications.
My research emphasis over these years has been on developing a solid-state, low-cost method of collecting ZPE and converting it into electric power. The method at which I arrived was described in a previous article in Explore ! For the Professional Journal, Published in January, 2003. The world electric power market is about $2 trillion a year. We have selected third-world nations as our market area, where one third of the people live without adequate electric power. They also have inadequate telephone and internet connections. This market is also estimated at $2 trillion. About twenty-five years ago, I was contacted by a young electrical engineering student, Barry Bowser, to see if my method might also be used in communications. I furnished him with several E-dams (my name for the collection device) and he concluded that the devices could be used for signal transfer. He graduated, went to work in the patent office and found a patent that covered his idea. At that point he lost interest in the idea and I have since lost track of him.
Shortly after we moved to Florida in 1982, I was given the name of Henry Wallace to contact. It turned out that he lived about five miles from us. Henry was interested in using gravity waves as his communication method and was awarded a patent on his method. The force of gravity is one of the fundamentals of nature and is the weakest of the four forces. I visited Henry in his home and he gave me a copy of his patent. I could not see any reason to change from electromagnetic collection and dropped the contact. Now it is clear from what I have learned subsequent to our meeting that a combination of my method and the Wallace method will be the best way to go.
