NOW COME TORSION FIELDS
Torsion fields have been studied by several groups of Russian scientists for at least three decades and most of that time in secret. What are torsion fields? According to A. Akimov, these fields come in at least three types: E-fields, S-fields, and G-fields. The E, S, and G stand for Electric, Spin, and Gravity fields. The torsion field and its emanations are subtle energy fields. They are separate and distinct from classical Electric, Magnetic, and Gravity fields. Generators for these fields can be shielded against electro-magnetic fields and the torsion field still manifest itself through such shielding. Torsion fields can be generated, detected, switched on and off (such as for communication purposes), and are a distinct type of energy field heretofore not included in today's classical physics. Torsion field emanations can travel at velocities at least as high as 109 times the speed of light. Torsion fields can interact with laser beams (change frequency); affect biological processes; are generated by melting or solidifying some materials; affect quartz crystals; affect some electronic components; can favorably change some beverages; and have been noted to affect gravity.
According to Akimov, torsion fields coupled with the standard electric, magnetic, and gravity fields should provide means for a unified field theory that will extend the realm of science to include the effects of consciousness. The concept of dowsing, for example, can now have a scientific basis for explanation of the phenomenon. If this suggestion by Akimov proves viable, then science has an opportunity to extend its borders more rapidly into the so-called psychic realms. That could be a multi-decade venture of considerable importance to the expansion of scientific knowledge.
The Basics of Torsion Mechanics
As is well known, Einstein's general relativity theory operates with 4 translational coordinates x, y, z, ct. Einstein's GR does not take into consideration the fact that the accelerated system can possess an angular momentum. Thus Einstein's mechanics does not take into consideration the existence of torsion interactions or the torsion principle of inertia.
In 1986 M.Carmeli attempted to create a special principle of rotational relativity  as an addition to Einstein's special principle of translational relativity. But Carmeli's approach didn't take into consideration some problems of inertia forces, and M.Carmeli could not finish the program of rotational relativity. The program of rotational relativity has been completely realized in the framework of the so-called theory of the physical vacuum by G.I.Shipov .
Shipov rigorously showed that Einstein's translational relativity should be complemented with a rotational (torsion) relativity. The combination of translational and torsional relativities allows the development of a new mechanics which is termed the mechanics of an orientable material point (the mechanics of a material point with spin or torsion mechanics) .
The mechanics of a material point with spin describes the motion of an accelerated system by 10 equations, but not by 4 equations as in Einstein's mechanics, and this mechanics is a generalization of Einstein's mechanics. It has been shown that the complete description of the motion of an accelerated system with spin cannot be made in the framework of Riemannian geometry used in GR. The space of torsion mechanics has the structure of the geometry A4 (the geometry of absolute parallelism). The geometry of absolute parallelism was first examined in the works of R.Weitzenbock [4,5]. It is interesting to note the fact that, in the framework of A4 geometry, A.Einstein has authored the greatest number of works (13) devoted to the unified field theory in comparison with the other geometries.
Experimental detection of the torsion field
Torsion fields are extremely unusual objects of investigation. Since a torsion field is identical to the transverse spin polarization of the physical vacuum, and a gravitational field is identical to the longitudinal spin polarization of the physical vacuum , then some properties of torsion fields are identical to the properties of gravitational fields. For instance, experiments show that torsion fields cannot be shielded by natural media, and in this way their behavior is similar to that of gravitational fields . However, unlike gravitational fields which cannot be shielded even by artificial materials, torsion fields are shielded by artificial materials possessing orthonormal topology of structure. In practice, it is possible to screen torsion radiation with lengths of stretched polyethylene film commonly produced by industry. This film is manufactured in such a manner that the polymers form an aligned unidirectional structure. The unidirectional orientation of the polymers results in a molecular spin ordering. And this results in the generation of a collective torsion field. Two crossed polyethylene films are transparent to light, and are transparent to most of the radio-frequency spectrum. However, they can effectively shield torsion radiation.
Torsion Field Generator
Spin Field Generator
The generator consists of a rotating hollow cylinder made of ferrite-magnetic material with the axis of rotation coinciding with the cylinder’s main symmetry axis. Four (wedge-like) permanent magnets are inserted into the cylinder. The magnets are magnetized perpendicularly to their own plane. The cylinder can take the form of either a flat ring or a tube. It is possible to cause the cylinder's rotation (to create the motor) with different methods, but it is necessary to take into account that external EM-fields, and the materials used in the motor can alter the properties of the spin-field significantly.
TRANSFER OF INFORMATION BY MEANS OF PHYSICAL MEDIUM OF SUPERWEAK (TORSION) FIELDS (TELEPATHY ANALOG)
According to modern concepts the field effects (gravitation, electromagnetism) are in the basis of effect of long-range action, and torsion components of fields of the physical vacuum can be in the basis of transfer of information at a distance between biological objects [Shipov G.I."Theory of Physical Vacuum",M.,NT-Centr,1993,362į.].
There is a possibility for creating in essence a new communication system having non-electromagnetic nature, and having high velocity (more than velocity of light) and extremely high penetrating ability.
After reaching positive results there is a possibility for creating economic mobile communication facilities, which do not require repeater stations and any equipment for creating channels. The realisation of the project can favour the development of the direction of telepathy effect by means of the relevant equipment.
Realisation of pilot model of a communication system (working model) transfer of information (Patent application "Transfer of Information by means of Physical Superweak Fields", LV P-97-156, 27.08.1997g.)
By use of physical medium PMSF (Physical Medium of Superweak Fields) for translation and reception of data it was proposed for the first time to use a translator and a retranslator for decision of the task of modulation of information as well as method of reception and decoding of translated information.
Maximum distance of translation and reception during the experiments was 50 km. For the translation no external power source was needed, engineering and natural objects didn't screen the communication. There was stated the possibility of translation and reception data in operation modes "0" and "1", in the mode of symboliwise reception of words and in the of ideal forms (phantoms). The offered system of translation and reception of data is in our opinion an original analogue of telepathy realised without any biological translating components.
For the wide practical use a corresponding engineering automation of the translation and reception mode is needed.
Subtle Connections: Psi, Grof, Jung, and the Quantum Vacuum
Are human beings entirely discrete individuals, their organism enclosed by the skin and their minds enclosed by the cranium housing the brain? Or are there effective, if subtle, interconnections between humans and between humans and the world at large? This study argues that the latter assumption is likely to be true. Though the evidence for "subtle connections" is not in the form of incontrovertible "hard data" it is nevertheless cogent and significant. The directly pertinent findings are generated by research on psi- phenomena and the practice of psychotherapists. Possible explanations for the findings can be traced to the ideas of Carl Jung, and are now pursued at the leading edge of the physical sciences.
Toward an Explanation: The Quantum Vacuum
Jung's concept points the way toward a fruitful avenue of research: a deeper reality that connects mind and mind, and mind and matter. This approach should enter the current stream of consciousness research. For the present, most researchers seek an explanation of mental events mainly in terms of physical processes in the brain. But henceforth the mental events to explain should include not only the workings of the individual brain but, in light of the findings of psi- experimenters and psychotherapists, the subtle connections that link human brains with each other and with the world at large.
It seems likely that world and brain — cosmos and consciousness — are interconnected by a continuous information-conserving and transmitting field. New entities — which can also be forces or fields — can only be postulated when doing so is the simplest, the most economical and the most rational way of explaining a given set of findings and observations.
A field that constitutes the simplest, the most economical and rational explanation of the current findings may exist: David Bohm, the same as this writer, suggested that it is the as yet imperfectly understood "zero- point field" (ZPF) that seems present throughout the quantum vacuum.
Received knowledge about the vacuum - - In quantum physics the quantum vacuum is defined as the lowest energy state of a system of which the equations obey wave mechanics and special relativity. It is the locus of a vast energy field that is neither classically electromagnetic nor gravitational, nor yet nuclear in nature. Instead, it is the originating source of the known electromagnetic, gravitational, and nuclear forces and fields. It is the originating source of matter itself.
The zero- ppoint field of the quantum vacuum is a "Dirac sea": a sea of particles in the negative energy state. These particles are not observable — physicists call them "virtual." But they are not fictional for all that. By stimulating the negative energy states of the ZPF with sufficient energy, a particular region of it can be "kicked" into the real (that is, observable) state of positive energy. This is the process known as pair creation: out of the vacuum emerges a positive energy (real) particle, with a negative energy (virtual) particle remaining in it..
The quantum vacuum contains a staggering density of energy. John Wheeler estimated its matter- equivalent at 1094 gram per cm3 — and that is more than all the matter in the universe put together. Compared with this energy density, the energy of the nucleus of the atom — the most energetic chunk of matter in the known universe — seems almost minuscule: it is "merely" 1014 gram/cm3.
The vacuum itself is not material: its zero- point energies — which, according to David Bohm, exceed all the energies bound in matter 1040 times — are in the negative state. This is fortunate, for if they were not, the universe would instantly collapse to a size smaller than the radius of an atom.
Speculations on the vacuum - - A thin line divides what is already known and accepted about the quantum vacuum and what is still speculative and controversial. Here we review the relevant explorations: those that concern interactions between the observable world of matter- energy and the vacuum's zero- point energies.
The world of matter and the quantum vacuum are known to interact. Under certain conditions vacuum's zero- point energies act on electrons orbiting atomic nuclei. The effects occur when electrons "jump" from one energy state to another: the photons they emit exhibit the so- called Lamb-shift (a frequency slightly shifted from its normal value). Vacuum energies also create a radiation pressure on two closely spaced metal plates. Between the plates some wavelengths of the vacuum field are excluded, thereby reducing its energy density with respect to the field outside. This creates a pressure — known as the Casimir effect — that pushes the plates inward and together.
Other interactions may exist as well. Some years ago Hungarian physicist Lajos Jánossy assigned "relativistic effects" (such as the slowing down of clocks when accelerated close to the speed of light, or the increasing of the mass of objects at those velocities) to the interaction of real world objects with the vacuum's energy field.
Currently another Hungarian, maverick theoretician László Gazdag, developed Jánossy's concept into a full- fledged "post- relativity theory".
In his theory the vacuum's energy field has the properties of a superfluid. It is known that in super-cooled helium all resistance and friction ceases. Conversely, objects move through the fluid without encountering resistance.
In Gazdag's reinterpretation of Einstein's relativity theory the celebrated formulas describe the flow of bosons in the superfluid ZPF. This flow is what determines the geometrical structure of spacetime, and hence the trajectory of real world photons and electrons. When particles of light and matter move uniformly, spacetime is Euclidean; when they are accelerated the ZPF interacts with their motion. Then spacetime appears curved. (As Russian physicist Piotr Kapitza noted, in a superfluid only those objects move without friction that are in constant quasi- uniform motion. If an object is strongly accelerated, vortices are created in the medium and these vortices produce resistance: the classical interaction effects surface.)
Front- line research in physics confirms the basic notion that underlies these assumptions. Current work follows up a suggestion made by physicists Paul Davies and William Unruh in the mid- 1970s. Davies and Unruh, like Jánossy and Gazdag, based their argument on the difference between constant- speed and accelerated motion in the vacuum's zero- point field. Constant- speed motion would exhibit the vacuum's spectrum as isotropic (the same in all directions), whereas accelerated motion would produce a thermal radiation that breaks open the directional symmetry.
In 1994 Bernhard Haisch, Alfonso Rueda and Harold Puthoff gave a mathematical demonstration that inertia can be considered a vacuum- based Lorentz- force. The force originates at the subparticle level and produces opposition to the acceleration of material objects. The accelerated motion of objects through the vacuum produces a magnetic field, and the particles that constitute the objects are deflected by this field. Inertia is thus a form of electromagnetic resistance arising in accelerated frames from the distortion of the zero- point (and otherwise superfluid) field of the vacuum.
More than inertia, also mass appears to be a product of vacuum interaction. If Haisch and collaborators are right, the concept of mass is neither fundamental nor even necessary in physics. When the massless electric charges of the vacuum (the bosons that make up the superfluid zero- point field) interact with the electromagnetic field, beyond the already noted threshold of energy, mass is effectively "created." Thus mass may be a structure condensed from vacuum energy, rather than a fundamental given in the universe.
If mass is a product of vacuum energy, so is gravitation. Gravity, as we know, is always associated with mass, obeying the inverse square law (it drops off proportionately to the square of the distance between the gravitating masses). Hence if mass is produced in interaction with the ZPF, then also the force that is associated with mass must be so produced. This, however, means that all the fundamental characteristics we normally associate with matter are vacuum field- interaction products: inertia, mass, as well as gravity.
In regard to the full scale of interactions between vacuum energies and the micro- as well as macro- world of matter- energy, the work of a group of Russian physicists is of particular significance. Anatoly Akimov, G.I. Shipov, V.N. Binghi and co- workers developed a sophisticated theory of what they call the "physical vacuum." In their theory the vacuum is a real physical field extending throughout the universe: it registers and transmits the traces of both micro- particles and macro-objects.
In standard theories the energetic properties of the quantum vacuum are generally considered in the framework of quantum electrodynamics. This framework gives rise to elegant and relatively simple mathematics.
The Russian physicists do not hesitate to undertake this step. They take their cue from earlier work by Einstein. In a seminal treatment, G.I. Shiphov showed that in accordance with the Clifford- Einstein program of the geometrization of spacetime, the vacuum can be described not only in terms of Riemannian (four- dimensional) curvature, but also in terms of Cartan torsion. In the 1920s studies carried out by Albert Einstein and E. Cartan laid the foundation of the theory that became subsequent known as the ECT (Einstein- Cartan Theory). The idea stemmed originally from Cartan, who at the beginning of the century speculated about fields generated by angular momentum density. This idea was later elaborated independently by a number of Russian physicists, including N. Myshkin and V. Belyaev. They claim to have discovered the natural manifestations of enduring torsion fields.
Presently Akimov and his team consider the quantum vacuum as a universal torsion wave carrying medium. The torsion field is said to fill all of space isotropically, including its matter component. It has a quantal structure that is unobservable in non- disturbed states. However, violations of vacuum symmetry and invariance create different, and in principle observable, states.
The torsion field theory takes a modified form of the original electron- positron model of the "Dirac- sea": the vacuum's energy field is viewed as a system of rotating wave packets of electrons and positrons (rather than a sea of electron- positron pairs). Where the wave- packets are mutually embedded, the field is electrically neutral. If the spins of the embedded packets have the opposite sign, the system is compensated not only in charge, but also in classical spin and magnetic moment.
As a result Akimov et al. view the vacuum as a physical medium that can assume various polarization states. All fundamental fields known to physics correspond to specific vacuum polarization- states.
Thus the above "torsion- field theory of the physical vacuum" can claim that all objects, from quanta to galaxies, create vortices in the vacuum. The vortices created by particles and other material objects are information carriers, linking physical events quasi- instantaneously. The group speed of these "torsion- waves" is of the order of 109 C -- one billion times the speed of light. Since not just physical objects, also the neurons in our brain create and receive torsion waves, not only particles are "informed" of each other's presence , also humans can be so informed: our brain, too, is a vacuum- based "torsion- field transceiver." This suggests a physical explanation not only of quantum non- locality, but also of telepathy, remote viewing, and the other telesomatic effects discussed above.
Torsion waves both superluminal and enduring. Meta- stable "torsion- phantoms" generated by spin- torsion interaction can persist even in the absence of the objects that generated them. The existence of these phantoms has been confirmed in the experiments of Vladimir Poponin and his team at the Institute of Biochemical Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Poponin, who has since repeated the experiment at the Heartmath Institute in the US, placed a sample of a DNA molecule into a temperature controlled chamber and subjected it to a laser beam. He found that the electromagnetic field around the chamber exhibits a specific structure, more or less as expected. But he also found that this structure persists long after the DNA itself has been removed from the laser- irradiated chamber: the DNA's imprint in the field continues to be present when the DNA is no longer there. Poponin and his collaborators conclude that the experiment shows that a new field structure has been triggered from the physical vacuum. This field is extremely sensitive; it can be excited by a range of energies close to zero. The phantom effect is a manifestation, they claim, of a hitherto overlooked vacuum substructure.
Theories such as those we have cited here foreshadow a major leap in the scientific world picture: the physical foundations of the universe acquire an active role in all its functions and processes. Life, and even mind, is a manifestation of the constant if subtle interaction of the wave- packets classically known as "matter" with the underlying physically real zero- point vacuum field.
If the emerging world picture is to be completed, we must evolve an explicit hypothesis to describe the basic dynamics of the overall range of matter- vacuum interaction. In this writer's "quantum- vacuum interaction (QVI) hypothesis," the non- classical energy field of the vacuum (consisting of scalar as well as electromagnetic wave propagations) registers the spacetime behavior and evolution of matter- energy systems in the form of interfering wavefronts. The conserved interference patterns form a holographic information field accessible to systems with a stereodynamic pattern isomorphic to the systems that produced the patterns. The applicable process can be described as forward and reverse Fourier transforms. Hence matter-energy systems ranging from quanta to complex atomic, molecular, cellular and multicellular structures, including human brains, decode ("read out") the information they and analogous systems have encoded ("read into") the field. Given that wavefronts superpose in multiple dimensions, the ZPF of the vacuum acts as an information- conserving and transmitting universal holofield, intercon- necting systems with each other, as well as with their subsidiary systems (internal parts) and suprasystems (external environments).
