I *am* having to go back through and correct my relativity mistakes, after all.
I edited the "Light-Time Adjustments and Star-Gate Travel" section on the Warp Drive news page.
It is so raw and horrible, that I'm making a special post about those changes that were heralded with my latest article on the Warp Drive Blog page, "The Paradox of General and Special Relativity," where I have actually found the solution.
There are four layers of physics all involved -- those of Thermodynamics and General / Special Relativity, Warp Drive physics, and Hyperdrive Teleportation (Light Drive) physics, mixed in with Quantum physics. By eliminating the mistakes one-by-one, I'm hoping to see a much bigger picture, and make it much easier to understand.
Regarding Inflation of Space, Space contracts and expands; space breathes in paradoxical ways. It's not true to say everything is moving away from everything else. It is MORE true to say that the gravity of stars pull space in toward them, creating expansion between the stars, but otherwise everything remains where it is (Ancient Sumerians have determined the same light-years thousands of years ago between stars as NASA has today, oddly enough). Yet that also is a paradox, because the compression of space does not make space smaller, but allows for a type of inner expanse in a star system to support and sustain universal life-frequencies.
That exists in a slower time than deep space, but yet in a higher space frequency regardless (more time). It is not true to say time slows down closer to gravity. It's MORE true to say there is MORE TIME closer to gravity, because the gravity density of matter is more separated from a Light-like reality.
How that works with a starship, is exactly how it is supposed to. Negative space / Negative Energy warp bubbles like what NASA are working with (Alcubierre, thank you Sir), and Tachyon mechanics also are mainly in the spotlight. Hyperspace teleportation is logically possible also, and the frequency physics which makes General Relativity behave in opposite is exactly the physics for hyperspace teleportation.
It's fairly cut and dry, how it looks now at this time. There are two many words on the Warp Drive News page, mainly in the "Light-Time Adjustments ..." article, and it is too painfully obvious how I struggled to show how General Relativity does not prevent warp drive, until toward the end where finally an expression of logical thought was used that did not conflict itself, or General Relativity, because General Relativity does not apply in a warp drive field. General Relativity doesn't really apply outside of a warp drive field, either. Observation of a ship, it would only disappear entirely (a different kind of event horizon), or you would see a ball of light moving oddly then disappear.
The universe observed from the point of view of piloting a warp drive starship is totally different than what we observe from standing barefoot on Earth. General Relativity might not even be used in navigation since we would have the ability to travel faster and independently through time and space. Blending this difference has been a challenge. Also, the periodic overhauls of the physics itself has been frustrating (too much junk DNA, to put it humorously).
All the Stars are interconnected as One Energy -- Electrical plasma life energy creative generators, Interchanging tides of infinite information reflexively and intelligently in creation, existing in a sea of electrical vibration all as one Living Energy of Life.
The frequency of space and time that gravity speeds up the life around stars, and slows things down in deep space, also stretches the space between stars, and is created by stars. Time doesn't slow down at a black hole, it's the distance in time and space between Earth and the hole, which is increased so much that it takes Eons of time to bridge that gap.
So even if thousands of years pass on Earth if one finds oneself near a black hole on a starship, then very rapid warp drive travel back to Earth would allow the ship to race faster than what the speed of time can do to put such a gap between locations.
If three or four stars could be placed in a line between our closest star, then the trip to Alpha Centauri would take much less time, traveling at the speed of light overall, because the distance between the end points would be decreased as the frequency is increased.
To make matters easier, the starship acts in this fashion as it resonates with the quantum vacuum, with Light, which changes TIME, not space, while allowing the pilot to remain in an independent frequency in direct resonance with "universal Source", NOT affected by the space around the ship that it travels through, changing it's "speed" by changing it's frequency, lengthening the distance of each space-jump by changing its own frequency, which affects the universe around the starship allowing a pilot to travel, which is the technological version of "Ascension."
Light measures time frequency in relative gravity fields because light is simultaneous, and everywhere at once, in many probable realities all at once. The paradox of the light event puts the pilot (conscious and intentional navigator) into just one place at the beginning of the voyage, and just one other place at the end of the voyage, passing through nearly infinite possible parallel realities and locations along the way, and ultimately is a large factor of determining the dimension and parallel reality, and time placement of the destination.
This means that a starship can travel many times faster than light, which is merely the frequency of the space between stars. In a high enough frequency, generating and creating it, a starship can easily use stars as single-stepping-stones on a journey throughout the galaxy.
KEEP IN MIND (this is the point of Tachyon Drive Mechanics), as mass is decreased by the engine geometry, there is an inverse gravitation generated. This makes the ship travel through purely frequency. Since mass increases gravity and curves time and space, zeroing out the mass means a ship can travel at limitless speed, and as mass decreases, the time frequency of the ship increases (as matter approaches a vibration of pure light).
Let me rephrase: mass, gravity, and space exists in a frequency of time that light can measure. By reducing mass, gravity, and space, then time must increase. Space and time are inversely proportional. As matter approaches the speed of light, its mass increases to prevent it from moving faster than the frequency of spacetime itself. Matter can't move faster than its own frequency; and matter can't move faster than the gravitytime frequency of the star system it's in, unless matter didn't take up space, or otherwise took up negative space.
Looking at it through General Relativity, time slows way down by a black hole because it's so massive. In reverse, time would speed up as mass in a gravity field were to decrease (inverting the field).
These are terribly simple ways of looking at an otherwise very complex issue, but is actually more simple than what anyone would suspect. If there is more time in a strong gravity field, so that one action takes many more seconds than it normally would, then it is because of space -- the expansion of gravity (as Einstein would say) -- because space must balance time, otherwise more action could be done in a field of faster-flowing time (a higher TIME frequency) where there is less space, less mass, and less gravitation.
I can try to explain this a thousand different ways, and each time it's a little different, but the gist of it follows recognizable patterns of existence, patterns that we can conclude as how the universe acts and operates and what it does.
As energy and frequency, that defines a universe that does not behave as objects. I have moved away from that type of pure physics in order to focus more on mass and gravity and inertial relativity. Otherwise, as your ship or vessel increases in frequency, and time is an aspect of frequency, then that changes the entire nature of relativity in that we can create our own time anomaly. Changing the frequencies of space using a gravity beam however, that must be done from within a place where the frequencies of space do not otherwise alter the frequencies of time, transforming between space and time to create warps and space folds (as more people are familiar with); and because time is changed, then distances of space can be jumped per second, which can be achieved in resonance with the quantum vacuum, to create much more energy than there should be, normally.
A warp drive has the ability to speed up or slow down time in a field, with a gravity engine in the center to adjust the expansion and contraction of space frequencies (to lengthen space or shorten space), in order to create propulsion. In fact, the ship doesn't move, it just moves the universe of a straight line into its center, where it disappears from time, pulling upon the universe itself to move, ultimately through itself because when the starship changes within the universe, it changes the universe of everything around it, relative to the pilots, and more than likely invisible to outside observers because it vibrates at a higher frequency than the visual light spectrum.
Without the gravity engine, just acting as the OTC-X1, or the LAU-X3 with the Outer Ring Engine on, it is free to travel where the pilot wants to go, and teleport at will within the only limitation of its own frequency. The limit of inertial frequency is the speed of light (magneto-electrostatic). At resonance, that frequency can increase, beyond the limitation of relative star-system gravitational frequencies, many times higher than the speed of light (gravity-time frequency), so that a ship doesn't have to travel through space, but the pilots themselves would create the illusion and continuity of space as a frame of reference, due to the focus of the pilot's consciousness, and depending on how adept the pilot was at what we could consider psychic aspects.
The OTC-X1 was thought piloted. Thought is energy, we are all energy, intention directs energy and creates energy. We exist in a sea of energy -- all matter, all objects, are all energy with vibration and frequency and inertia to manifest action. In a unified field, it is obvious that being "one with the ship" means that where you direct your thoughts, that where you INTEND to be, your ship will go.
. . . and General Relativity does not forbid or disallow warp drive travel, it EXPLAINS it.
