This is an issue of frequency and vibration due to gravity cancellation. When the mass of the ship is reduced due to it's energy field, the reduced mass is carried through its rotating electromagnetic field.
The same space no longer had the same mass, it was not nearly as dense. The energy of mass cancellation, or gravity (inertial mass) cancellation is electromagnetic since mass is essentially electromagnetic. If you consider that a single proton has a charge of +1, it thereby has an electromagnetic field when in motion; it has an electromagnetic charge of +1
What would happen to a proton with the same charge but reduced mass? As long as its space doesn't collapse upon itself, then it exists in a higher frequency, able to vibrate faster because it's not so massive . . .
For example if you jump from a high dive and belly flop on the water it hurts, you smack right into the water because your inertia is higher. Slowly passing your hand through the water while at rest, it moves effortlessly through it. The water itself has an inertia of rest. Since at rest, or sitting on the edge of a pool and passing your hand through the water doesn't have as much inertia as jumping from the high dive, then it can be considered you have much less inertial mass while sitting on the edge of a pool than from falling from a high dive.
Ralph never tried to smack the OTC-X1 though, which would have been interesting to see if his hand passed through it, at a greater kinetic inertia.
Looking at it differently, the inertial mass of the OTC-X1 is greatly reduced so the same energy that makes it move about will move it much further and much faster, not having to build up speed to overcome its own inertia, but just the slightest motion will jump it (teleport) some distance away.
Less density in the same space, higher frequency of electromagnetism, but a higher negative energy, too.
The energy of gravity cancellation is carried through the electromagnetic field, just like mass is. If you add weight to a sledge hammer, it will have a mightier blow. The electromagnetic field of the outer rotating electromagnets is just like adding weight, but in this case it's removing weight, and removing weight (mass actually) in a surrounding area affected by the field. The magnetic field tends to permeate but also tends to reflect itself against the hull of the OTC-X1 so that a much less (reduced) magnetic field is detected on the outside, similar to a Faraday cage.
If you add electric current in the same polarity, it becomes greater. See, it's all an aspect of electromagnetism.
But since the OTC-X1 engine is a component of the LAU-X ship, part of its mass is also of the whole mass of the ship. So the rest of the ship will also be reduced in mass, and take on a negative mass value overall.
Here is the real question though: Will the LAU-X class ship also pass through matter?
Well let's see. It uses negative energy. It generates negative energy. But what of the di-electric in the Outer Ring? It seems to generate a propulsive inertia force due to the Townsend Brown di-electric. If we use a double stack of Townsend Brown di-electrics, facing opposite directions (up and down forces), will it cancel its inertial mass? Only if the di-electric forces are opposing, but not conjoining.
If a buildup of inertial forces up and down were contained and resonated within the two di-electric plates, it would build up a concentration point of positive inertial force, otherwise it would have positive and negative inertial forces and a zero in the middle just like a magnet.
Gravity is a force of inertia / acceleration / mass. To create a negative energy, the gravity must cancel, and it requires inertia to do so. Just the OTC-X1, the utrons generate inertial forces but cancel them geometrically, similar to the right angled effect of a geo-stationary satellite cancelling inertial vectors at 90 degrees which puts it in a faster time frequency.
The Outer Ring cannot achieve a balanced inertial cancellation force because one force will always be greater above or below; only in vortex can it be achieved.
So this below is going to be imbalanced one way or another; there is no way to cancel the inertial forces in such a geometry.
No matter which way the propulsive di-electrics face, there will always be a greater force and a lesser force with polarity.
So the Outer Ring must deal with energy ONLY. In the best case, it lowers the inertial mass of the particle streams through the upper and lower portions of the ring. But it tends to reduce the overall mass of the ring itself to a smaller space sandwiched between the plates.
It is not in a cancellation geometry, but it is in reduction. And considering what negative energy is, which is the collapse of energy/mass, then we do have a configuration that is noteworthy.
Matter and Antimatter
There are subtle differences between matter and antimatter, which are nearly mirror images, but with a .11111111 variance as David Sereda has discovered (see the warp drive blog down below in the article about black holes).
Simulating matter and antimatter conditions using regular matter deals with polarity, but the positive and negative particle streams through the ring will still both have positive mass / inertia.
The Townsend Brown di-electric might not be in one constant plate through the whole Outer Ring. It might have to be gapped where each generator "head" is placed. Through the accelerator frame segments, would be the best placement.
The ideal goal is to achieve a system that can pass through matter, which would mostly likely be a simple by-product of gravity cancellation -- lowering the inertial mass significantly throughout a structure or body, but while maintaining the same energy form, but in less density.
There must be some inertia to maintain the form itself; energy itself can be dense but not necessarily massive.
What that means is that increasing the frequency increases the density of energy, while lowering the density of mass itself. Metaphysically, conscious energy of Love is more dense -- at higher frequency. Light beings for example have a greater frequency and density, while their mass is negligible. Matter and Energy is a Unity. Mass is due to separation through time.
While inertial forces are a requirement to move the ship as a given, gravity cancellation lowers the mass; HOWEVER, negative energy is the key.
That means that there can be a positive inertia but with a negative energy.
At its core, there must be an inertia to maintain form, but the energy itself is conducted along the surface. A positive force of protons could very well accumulate on the di-electric, and electrically repel additional protons to move through the rings, or it could just collapse upon itself. In a binary star system, two stars are equally pulling on each other, but their speed of rotation is what cancels the gravity force in a field generated by the two stars in motion.
The last thing we want is to build up a massive force in the Outer Ring. If we consider the energy of gravity and inertia are the "positive and negative" aspects of a single particle with mass, only motion will allow us to determine those polar differences.
This is why I have limited the Outer Ring to a field correlator only. The Townsend Brown di-electric within the ring is troublesome at best.
Here is the final question:
Is negative energy generation in the outer ring itself sufficient to create a field, or at the very least carry the mass-cancellation effect from the lower OTC-X1?
Considering that the Townsend Brown di-electric USES negative energy to begin with, we may have a solution. It uses negative energy because in the same configuration, a force of positive energy would not nearly move it as fast as Townsend Brown was able to demonstrate back in the 1930's.
So that means that even though there is a higher concentration of inertia through the diameter, it is in negative energy further reducing its mass, while increasing its inertia. That is also why I didn't reference "gravity" but only inertia, in the above diagram.
Inertia is a unified construct. Even light has inertia, but it is different. In teleportation of matter into light (through light) and back into matter, the matter maintains its form. So form is carried through light as well. If you notice through the center of the diameter, it is in one polarity, or rather without polarity; it is unified.
As a rule, energy without polarity is considered one of two things: light, or exotic. Electromagnetic energy, or any energy with a magnet, when that magnet is phased, unified, or cancelled to a zero, there is no detectable magnet, but it still exists to be reformed through polarization. But it isn't exotic unless it demonstrates superconductive qualities. Light definitely demonstrates superconductive qualities TO ITSELF, otherwise light couldn't teleport, take both paths around a star, or have simultaneous qualities like in the Twin Particle / Twin Photon experiments.
Light has inertia also to form matter, and matter has inertia to unify as light, which is the origin of inertia itself in the physical universe.
Taking all of this into consideration . . .
As long as the energy is negative in the Outer Ring, it will not build up a force that can counteract the OTC-X1 lower engine system.
Any acceleration of particles must be handled with negative energy; the Townsend Brown di-electric uses negative energy logically.
While it is unclear if the LAU-X class ship will teleport, it is clear that it builds up a negative force of inertial mass frequency, accomplished by the OTC-X1, thus lowering its overall mass. Since the Impeller is designed to use negative energy, it will not incur the Special Relativity curse of "the faster it goes the slower it goes;" and, by generating negative energy in the outer ring, the entire system of gravity cancellation is reinforced, with a possibility of exotic unification of inertial mass; however it is unclear if it will retain teleporting qualities, but it will be a functioning warp drive. It's a hyperdrive only if it jumps or teleports with a frequency of various "hops" through space. The entire system can achieve this possibly. Will the entire system phase through matter? That is unclear, specifically if it is unclear if "slapping the OTC-X1" while in operation has any affect, because that has not been tested.
Note: Given more power, the OTC-X1 system can be fed by the Outer Ring system, also, to increase the power of gravity cancellation (speed of rotation). Special considerations MAY apply to not burn out any system; generally negative energy will not burn out a system unless the system is designed to use positive energy, which the OTC-X1 is not. However, energies must be channeled through the Central Accumulator correctly, because it initially acts as a battery before it engages in its primary role. Also recall that negative energy uses positive energy as a super-conductor, which in by-product is where exotic energy has its derivative (is derived).
Recall that an electrostatic corridor will conduct electromagnetic energy. It's the same principle with positive and negative energy. Positive energy acts as a conductor for negative energy, but the action is superconductive! I'm putting this in bold so you can remember it. Why is it superconductive? Because it doesn't magnetically resist, it magnetically accelerates, using the electromagnetic field to assist it along. Also since negative energy is in collapse, the collapse occurs at the speed of light.
. . .
Being an organic system comprised of the living energy and thoughts of the pilots, consciousness (conscious intent and frequency / vibration) will play the largest role on the ship's teleporting qualities to pass through obstacles. But that issue has more to do with the mechanics of Ascension, and a focus of consciousness.
