Quantum Vacuum Engineering
Join The Quantum Vacuum
Visionary Investors and Contributors possessing all manner of skills, abilities and resources will be needed in an all out effort to expidite this revolution in science and engineering. Active participation and investment is solicited from many different quarters to ensure a smooth transition to the new paradigm economy. The move away from our addiction to fossil fuels and the problem child of nuclear fission reactors needs to commence immediately. Dwindling stocks of oil should instead be preserved for value added industrial applications, and conventional fission reactors should be phased out over the next decade before the "new build" nuclear renaissance gathers too much steam and wasted capital.
To aid teamwork and networking a loosely organized Science and Engineering Association is proposed, tentatively named the Quantum Vacuum Engineering Science Association (QVESA) in the realization that scientists and engineers will have to work closely in this rapidly emerging reformation. Anyone wishing to help with the inaugural setup and administration of this forward thinking organization is welcomed to contact the author.
In the absence of a well developed recruitment and association webpage, just drop us a line through our contact email address. Our recruitment page should hopefully be completed shortly. Your support, in whatever capacity you are able, would be much appreciated.
Economic, Environmental and Social Implications
Fundamentally, energy is what drives our economy, but our long standing reliance on fossil fuels and nuclear power with all their negative environmental, economic and social consequences has become a real threat to our very lives. Escalating international tension and the security implications over dwindling supplies are beginning to reek some serious havoc in the worlds economies. Middle east tensions constantly threaten the life blood of our economy.
Massive environmental changes are evidently being set in motion by escalating green house gas emissions and other pollutants. All the hype about global warming appears in the final analysis to have some real basis, so its high time we did something substantial to turn things around, before the situation gets much worse. The piece-meal, superficial window dressing of things like the Kyota Accord and other initiatives do not provide a realistic solution.
Rising energy costs also drive up the price of everything else, leaving everyone, especially the poor amongst us with less discretionary income. The higher pursuits of our personal lives and those of our society, including artistic and social endeavors invariably suffer as our ailing economy of rabid consumerism gradually crumbles from within. The QVE revolution promises to solve many of these problems in a comprehensive manner providing the equivalent of universally accessible working capital in the form of very inexpensive energy.
The prospect of many new jobs and environmentally friendly products and advanced "green" technologies should be welcomed by the vast majority. The precipitous drop in energy costs will eventually make a better quality of life available to everyone, without the prospect of destroying our planet in the process. Poorer nations will be among the major benefactors of the QVE technology, without the usual need for massive capital investments to provide the infrastructure that has been a requirement of our centralized fossil fuel and nuclear based economy. The move to dedicated micro-infrastructure will bring energy, clean water, sanitation, irrigation and transportation to even the remotest villages.
A myriad of other positive social implications are likewise not hard to envision. The need to remain close to the electrical distribution grid will be eliminated, so a lot more land in remote areas will become accessible for habitation. Combined with the development of advanced propulsion systems with transit speeds of hundreds of miles per hour, and universally accessible energy, one can choose to live almost anywhere. New energy QVE technologies will bring about an unprecedented level of freedom of mobility and settlement. Megatropolis cities with all their attendant social problems will no longer be necessary. A natural dispersion toward smaller cities with tighter knit communities should be the end result. The trend toward decentralization will also help to diminish the dictatorial tendencies of power mongering politicians and bureaucrats.
All that being said, the QVE revolution will not be without its challenges. It doesn't take a lot of thought to appreciate that large sectors of the economy will experience substantial disruptions with many workers being displaced by the rapid obsolescence of many technologies and the demise of the fossil fuelled economy. Potential problems with the transition from oil have been made all the more acute through the active suppression expidited by the corrupt regulatory practices of Big business and government that have jointly conspired to keep many of these innovations from entering the economy more gradually, even decades ago.
We are now faced with the very real prospect of a sudden emergence of many advanced QVE technologies simultaneously, which could work either for or against us depending on how it is handled. Much wisdom and humility will be required if we are to get through this transition period with a minimum of economic and social upheaval. Some degree of short term hardship must be expected. All of us presently enjoying a high degree of affluence should anticipate the need to make a few sacrifices in the short term to help out those less fortunate that will need to find new forms of employment in new sectors of the economy. Liberal severance and retraining programs largely funded by public funds will have to be a part of the process. Other government initiatives resembling the "New deal" and post war rebuild programs will have to be revisited.
Many industries will also need to go through a extensive retooling of production lines. Some plants will be closed outright. Sales of many conventional products will rapidly decline. For instance, plans to buy a new car will be shelved in anticipation of the fuelless model due out next year adding to the problem. Fuel taxes will have to be slashed and eventually replaced with road use taxes to ease the transition and help level the playing field between the old and new economies to prevent stalling the economy.
Retooled factories will eventually start churning out new technologies such as permanent magnet motors or atomic force engines that are poised as logical replacements for automotive engines and many other infrastructure retrofits. Coal, Nuclear and Gas fired power plants can be gradually phased out and their existing generators refitted with fuelless drive units, or abandoned outright in a gradual move away from centralized generating capacity.
The free energy system "in the garage" will probably have to be discouraged in urban centers. Legislation might even be employed as a detterent, although economies of scale and fewer hassles for the end user should effectively curtail wide spread abandonment of the electrical grid within urban centers. Decentralization of the power grid will provide greater electrical security eliminating the possibility of massive blackouts. High tension electrical distribution corridors will consequently be abandoned as cities gradually adopt their own production and distribution networks eliminating the need for huge centralized generating capacity.

QVE Development Resources
To assist in the development and application of QVac Engineered systems, a wide variety of consulting services will need to be provided.
In the interests of expediting a smooth transition to the new economy, consultants should seriously consider revisiting the age old, humanitarian practice of offering some pro-bono work, particularly to assist in applications in poverty stricken, Third World nations.
Unlike oil addicted over developed nations, introduction of such new technologies to the poorest of nations, is very much an upside investment with no real prospect of significant economic disruption.
