Science Says Wormhole Travel is Real; Can We Use it for Exotic Propulsion?

Science Says Wormhole Travel is Real; Can We Use it for Exotic Propulsion?

Once believed to be sci-fi fantasy, new research suggests we may be able to achieve interstellar travel using wormholes as shortcuts through spacetime.

Recently, physicist Pascal Koiran at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon in France published a pre-print study detailing the potential that matter could enter the event horizon of a black hole and pass through a wormhole and exit out the other end intact. Though still highly theoretical, wormholes are believed to be incredibly unstable as they exist as a tunnel between a black hole and a white hole in another part of the universe. 

But because nothing, including light, can escape a black hole once it has crossed its event horizon, physicists have believed that matter would need to somehow enter the wormhole outside of the event horizon in order to safely pass through.

Dr. Simeon Hein, director of the Institute for Resonance, explains the mind-bending physics of this theoretical phenomenon.

“So the idea people were beginning to think, ‘well, what happens to the matter and energy that gets condensed and condensed into a black hole?’” Dr. Hein said. “The idea was that it had to be ejected somewhere else beyond that point in space. And that became the idea of a wormhole to another point in spacetime where all the matter and energy would be ejected from the black hole to conserve this idea of symmetry which is the foundation of modern physics — that there’s kind of a basic symmetry to the universe. And so the other side of the wormhole is a white hole.”

If wormholes have been conceptualized by theoretical physics for decades, what is so novel about the mathematics proposed in this recent paper?

“Physicist Pascal Koiran in France, he looked at another way to measure what’s going on in the mathematics of black holes. He used a different metric than Einstein would have used because back in the 1950s, two different physicists, David Finkelstein and Sir Arthur Eddington of the Royal Society in the UK, both proposed that there was this point of no return in the black hole where once you got past a certain point, it was no longer symmetrical, you couldn’t leave anymore, the so-called Schwarzschild radius,” Dr. Hein said.

“Past this point, you would just keep getting more compressed and you would have to go through the wormhole. So, using the so-called Finkelstein-Eddington metric — and a metric, by the way, is kind of the idea of a standard unit of measurement, a standard unit of anything: speed, direction, or position — using this measurement Koiran was able to show that it’s actually more stable than you think; that there is some stability even at the highest level of gravitational compression in a black hole. This would suggest that moving through it, maybe something really would survive.”

While these abstract ideas describing theoretical phenomena light-years away are a fun thought experiment, what kind of practical application could they have for us here on earth, if any?

“What we’re talking about is creating other types of gravitational fields, objects that can create their own inertial and gravitational fields — antigravity. So could this be dangerous? It could result in exotic propulsion systems,” Dr. Hein said.

“ In fact, this could already be a classified topic within the US military because we know, all the people who have looked at these gravitational effects, a lot of it has been funded by the military going all the way back to the 1950s including the US Air Force. So, what we’re touching on here, it’s potentially a very important topic for propulsion and transportation, even the possibilities of weaponization, which is something we don’t want to think about, but we’re talking about real physics here and how matter behaves when it’s compressed to a high degree when the gravitational metrics change and so forth. So, what started out as something really far away, the idea of black holes as just a theoretical possibility has now become something where it could be something we see right here on Earth.”



The Longest Lunar Eclipse of the Century is This Week

The Longest Lunar Eclipse of the Century is This Week

The longest partial lunar eclipse is this week. What can we learn from the ancients about this celestial transitional event?

In the early morning hours of November 19, the moon will be in partial eclipse. NASA says the moon will slip behind the Earth’s shadow for about two and a half hours, and weather permitting, a huge swatch of the planet will be able to see at least some of the eclipse. The moon, as well as other celestial bodies, have played a big role in the lives of ancient peoples, mystics, and shamans.

Jack Cary, researcher and author of “Paranormal Planet,” said about the history and significance of the eclipse, “In ancient times, eclipses were always seen as an omen, whether it be good or bad. As the sun or the moon becomes shaded over, you’re seeing a connection both of the feminine and the masculine qualities of existence, and because of that it was seen as a holy union.”

What is the connection between the moon and divine feminine energy throughout history?

“The moon itself has always been seen as the goddess of the sky, and because of that all goddesses that were worshipped around the world in ancient civilizations all had this symbolism of the moon itself,” Cary said.

What did the ancient people know about the planets that we should remember now?
