The Wallace Patents and Politics of Science

Henry Wallace was an engineer at General Electric about 25 years
ago, and developed some incredible inventions relating to the   
underlying physics of the gravitational field. Few people 
have heard of him or his work. 

  US Patent #3626605 -- "Method and Apparatus for Generating 
  a Secondary Gravitational Force Field"
  Awarded to Henry Wm Wallace of Ardmore PA   Dec 14, 1971

  US Patent #3626606 -- "Method and Apparatus for Generating a
  Dynamic Force Field"
  Awarded to Henry Wm Wallace of Ardmore PA   Dec 14, 1971
  
  US Patent #3823570 -- "Heat Pump" (based on technology 
  similar to the above two inventions)
  Awarded to Henry Wm Wallace of Freeport NY  July 16, 1973

Wallace discovered that a force field, similar or related to 
the gravitational field, results from the interaction of relatively
moving masses. He built machines which demonstrated that this 
field could be generated by spinning masses of elemental material 
having an odd number of nucleons -- i.e. a nucleus having a 
multiple half-integral value of h-bar, the quantum of angular 
momentum.  Wallace used bismuth or copper material for his 
rotating bodies and "kinnemassic" field concentrators.  

Aside from the immense benefits to humanity which could result
from a better understanding of the physical nature of gravity, 
and other fundamental forces, Wallace's inventions could have
enormous practical value in countering gravity or converting
gravitational force fields into energy for doing useful work.

So, why has no one heard of him? One might think that the 
discoverer of important knowledge such as this would be 
heralded as a great scientist and nominated for dynamite 
prizes. Could it be that his invention does not work? 
Anyone can get the patents. Study them -- Wallace -- General 
Electric -- detailed descriptions of operations -- measurements 
of effects -- drawings and models -- it is authentic. If 
you're handy you can even build it yourself. It does work. 
So what is going on?

One explanation I've heard is that Wallace ran up against
the politics of science, as dictated in the late 1960's by 
the power-block at Princeton, who were primarily interested in 
promoting the ideas of their main man, Einstein, and the 
gravitation-is-geometry paradigm. Maybe there is some truth 
to this story. Nowadays, there seems to be a piss-pot full 
of theoretical physicists working on abstract geometrical 
theories and other absurdly difficult mental masturbations,
while no one seems to have made any effort to provide a 
theoretical explanation of the physics of a nuts-and-bolts 
invention which could have enormous practical value.  

Maybe we can blame it on the Princeton folks, but I'm more 
inclined to believe that our defense industry black project 
community has confiscated and suppressed knowledge of Wallace's 
discoveries. All done of course under the most honorable and 
sacred banner of national security. Well, it's been 25 years. 
We ought to be real secure by now. Isn't it way past time for 
some trickle down benefits to real people?

Wallace's inventions offer the potential of improving the 
quality of life for everyone. Throughout history, political
suppression and hoarding of scientific knowledge has 
inevitably resulted in a retardation of human advancement. 
It continues today. When will we ever learn?

More About the Wallace Patents -- Anti-Gravity Technology

An article about the Wallace patents appeared in the British 
magazine "New Scientist" in February 1980.  This was written 
nearly ten years after Wallace was awarded his patents. 
Here's a paragraph from the article.

    "Although the Wallace patents were initially ignored as
     cranky, observers believe that his invention is now
     under serious but secret investigation by the military
     authorities in the US. The military may now regret 
     that the patents have already been granted and so are 
     available for anyone to read."

I know -- it's a tease. And the rest of the article is the
same way. It provides barely enough information to jab your 
psyche a little, and not nearly enough to get you off your 
comfortable ass. And who knows who the anonymous party of 
"observers" are, who believe that a secret investigation is 
underway by the military -- or whether these observers even 
exist at all. None the less, the New Scientist has a fairly 
well established track record for accurate identification of 
new science trends and issues. And, while the editors of this 
British journal may be prone to enjoyment of gossip and 
innuendo, it generally turns out be grounded in truth. 

One thing they got right for sure: The patents are 
available for anyone to read. Get them. Study them. No 
doubt, Wallace got many things wrong about the physical 
theory of his invention. But, he did discover something 
very important. 

It does work. Stay tuned.

Michael Edelman (mje@pookie.pass.wayne.edu) writes about the Wallace
patents on antigravity technology:

: Oh yes indeed. I built one, turned it on, and the damn thing floated
: away....haven't been able to get the next one to work...

That's remarkable Michael. But this is no joke. Although Wallace 
wasn't able to do anything immediately dramatic, he did build a 
device that demonstrated a fundamentally new physical effect -- and 
he measured it and demonstrated it conclusively in multiple ways. 

It has long been postulated that a "kinetic" gravitational force 
exists, in conjunction with the well know static gravitational force. 
For many years scientists and experimenters have theorized that a
"kinetic" gravitational force might exist between relatively moving 
masses -- analogous to the magnetic force that exists between relatively 
moving charges. A force between relatively moving masses, is predicted 
by some solutions of GR, and has also been predicted by theorists 
through numerous analogies between the electromagnetic and gravitational 
fields. (both have r-squared law, force required to accelerate mass and 
force required to accelerate charge, kinetic energy proportional to MV^2 
and magnetic energy proportional to QV^2, etc). 

People have tried to measure this force for years, without success.
The "kinemassic" force is very small and difficult to find. What 
Wallace did was invent a way to demonstrate it, measure it, and most 
importantly put it to use. Wallace discovered how to concentrate the 
flux of the "kinenmassic" field, by using material having unpaired 
angular momentum in the nucleus -- analogous to how magnetic flux 
is more easily generated and concentrated by ferromagnetic material, 
which has unpaired electron (charge) spin.

Wallace built a machine which causes the axis of spin of the unpaired
angular momemtum in the nucleus to align itself with the macroscopic 
spin of the material -- resulting in a much stronger, and measurable 
kinemassic field. He also clearly documented the existence of the field 
with multiple methods of measurement. It's quite a piece of work. 
You can get the patents. But you won't find much else anywhere about 
it, because the military has it tucked away. 

One of the things you can do with it is use a time varying "kinemassic"
field to control/generate a gravitational field, and to shield a static 
gravitational field -- analogous to a use of a time varying magnetic 
field to generate or control an electric field. One of the emobidments
of Wallace's invention uses this effect to create a zero gravity 
chamber -- possibly similar to the zero gravity chamber that NASA 
is "rumored" to operate in the Houston area.

Intrinsic and Extrinsic Angular Momentum 

There is an important relationship between intrinsic and 
extrinsic angular momemtum, microscopic and macroscopic 
angular momentum, and quantum and classical level angular 
momentum. 

A body which is spinning within a larger macroscopic body 
which is also spinning will tend to align the axis of its 
angular momentum with the spin axis of the larger body. 
For example, a gyroscope located on the earth, unless it is
in a frictionless gimbal, with always try to precess due to
the rotation of the earth into alignment with the earth's polar 
axis, at which point it will no longer precess due to earth 
rotation. 

Another example. A cylinder of magnetic material spinning 
around its longitudinal axis will develop a magnetic field 
proportional to is angular velocity (Barnett Effect), because 
the angular momemtum of the electrons in the material will 
attempt to precess and come into alignment with the macroscopic 
axis of the spinning cylinder, which also brings into alignment 
the magnetic moment of the electrons, some of which have unpaired 
spins (ferromagnetic), resulting in generation of a macroscopic 
magnetic field. Similarly, it is know that a static magnetic field 
itself contains angular momentum -- and spinning the source of the 
static field, whether a magnet or DC current loop, will result
in a corresponding increase or decrease in the field strength.

Another example is the inventions of Henry Wallace, which were
discovered and patented about 25 years ago, when he worked at 
General Electric. Wallace found that an unusual thing happens when 
you spin elemental material which has a nucleus containing an odd 
number of nucleons, i.e. having an "un-paired" value of angular 
momentum, resulting in a nucleus with a multiple integer of a one-
half value of the quantum h-bar. The spin of the nucleus will 
begin to line up with the macroscopic spin axis, and will create 
a force field related to gravity -- which Wallace called the 
"kinemassic" field. If you haven't heard of Wallace or his unusual 
discovery, it might be because information about it has been 
classified by the military. 

Maybe I've missed it, but I've looked seriously, and there seems 
to be no information in undergraduate or graduate level physics
reference books which mentions the relationship between
macroscopic and microscopic angular momentum -- much less 
provides any analysis or explanation linking quantum angular 
momentum to macroscopic angular momentum. Why not?
How does quantum angular momentum become organized from a 
microscopic to a macroscopic level? Has anyone ever published 
any work about this? I can't find any.

You're catching on.  The subject of compound angular momentum, or 
internal and external angular momentum, or intrinsic and extrinsic 
angular momentum has been a repressed subject for about 2 and half 
decades.  Add to that list, spherical pendulums, Coriolis effect, except 
as applied to balistics and meteorology as used by the US military, 
and Shafer's pendulum, that neat little device used as the artifical 
horizon of aircraft.

There isn't any that I know of, though back in the late fifties, there 
was a fellow named Edward Condon at the University of Colorado who was 
fairly proficient on the subject. So much so that he wrote the rotational 
dynamics section, called noninertial dynamics at the time, of the 
reference "The Handbook of Physics" which he also co-edited (Chapter 5).   
I don't recall offhand who the publisher was (Harcourt/Brace?), though 
it was endorsed by the American Institute of Physics.

Later, when Mr Condon was the head of the USAF project 'Blue Book', he 
labored to suppress his own work when the directive was handed down from 
the Navy's Turtle Island project.

James Youlton
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: 

Edward Condon was not involved with project Blue Book, but was
involved in a different study of UFOs for the USAF which 
resulted in termination of the Blue Book project. Condon's 
first known involvement with study of UFOs was in 1943, when 
he was engaged by the military to assess the FooFighter phenomena.   
After the nationwide wave of UFO sightings in 1966, Condon 
was appointed head of a new committee to study the problem, 
The Committee for Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying 
Objects. Condon proceeded immediately to ridicule and debunk 
the idea of UFOs, even before the committee had it's first
meeting to begin it's "scientific" investigation. There are 
many files of information now circulating which document Edward 
Condon's sad turn from the scientific pursuit of truth to the 
dark side of politics. But, that's another story. 

Here's an excerpt about the Condon committee which comes
from the research report about UFOs prepared by Major 
Brummet and Captain Zuick in May 1974 for the USAF Air 
Command and Staff College.
    
    By September 1947, the United States Air Force (USAF)
  had become sufficiently interested in the growing number
  of UFO reports by reputable, respected citizens to estab-
  lish "Project Sign", later named "Project Grudge", and
  finally renamed "Project Blue Book", the Air Force program
  for investigation of UFOs. Project Blue Book remained
  in effect for over twenty-two years and investigated re-
  ports of 12,618 sightings. Unexplained sightings ranged
  between the official Project Blue Book report of 6 per
  cent to UFOlogist estimates of 54 per cent. Despite the
  wide variance in unexplained sightings, Secretary of the
  Air Force, Dr. Robert Seamans, announced the termination
  of Project Blue Book on December 17, 1969. The decision
  to discontinue UFO investigations was based on an eval- 
  uation of a report prepared by the University of Colorado
  entitled, "Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Ob-
  jects," more commonly referred to as the "Condon Report";
  a review of the Condon Report by the National Academy of
  Sciences; past UFO studies; and two decades of Air Force
  experience investigating UFO reports. (6:141)"
 ....    
    Project Blue Book was terminated on December 17, 1969,
  by Secretary of the Air Force, Robert C. Seamans, Jr.
  The decision to discontinue UFO investigations was based
  on a report prepared by the University of Colorado
  (Condon Report), a review of that report by the National
  Academy of Sciences, past UFO studies, and Air Force
  experience in investigating UFO reports.(21:297) Sec-
  retary Robert Seamans Jr., stated that the program "no
  longer can be justified either on the ground of national
  security or in the interest of science.(15:76)  Many
  experts disagree with the conclusion of the 1500 page,
  $539,000 independent Condon Study that took over two
  years to complete. The Condon Study concluded that :

          Nothing has come from the study of UFOs in
      the past 21 years that has added to scientific
      knowledge. Careful consideration of the record
      as it is available to us leads us to conclude
      that further extensive study of UFOs probably
      cannot be justified in the expectation that sci-
      ence will be advanced thereby.(1:2)

    One of the major critics of the Condon Study was
  an amateur UFO organization, The National Investigators 
  Committee for Aerial Phenomena (NICAP). As indicated
  by the Condon Report , NICAP in the past has spent much
  effort in attacking Air Force UFO policies and attempting
  to influence Congress. NICAP warned members of the
  Colorado Project to beware less the Condon Project turn
  out to have been "hired to whitewash the Air Force."

Well there you have it. Has the military really been engaged
in suppression of fundamental new science knowledge for almost 
50 years now, or is it just another one of those wild and crazy 
conspiracy rumors?

Yes, what you say would seem to be a most rational explanation, 
maybe even the most rational explanation. That is -- the reason
no one has ever heard of Wallace, is simply because his inventions 
don't work. And surely an invention like this discovered by a 
scientist at a renowned company such as General Electric, which 
was awarded two patents, and has enormous possible practical 
value and unestimable consequences in physical theory and experiment 
(we are talking about gravity control) -- would have been tested and 
evaluated by at least one or more independent research organizations.

Guess what -- either it was never tested, or it was tested 
and the results were classified. There is NO published 
information about evaluation of the performance or non-
performance of Wallace's invention. So what looks more 
rational -- was it never even tested, or did we just never 
get to see the results. And why have we never seen the results? 
What is more likely -- because it didn't work, or because 
it did?

>So unless you can produce a working model, I guess the obvious

Wallace has already produced a working device, and you refuse to
even look at. Why would I expect that you would bother to look at 
one that I might produce? If we were able to look at any kind of
test results for Wallace's device. That would be helpful. But 
the thing is -- there aren't any tests to look at, at least not
in the public domain. Most peculiar.

Anyhow, if you prefer to entirely discard the idea that the invention
might actually work, with no serious consideration whatsoever to 
the possibility that it's been suppressed. OK by me. It's refreshing 
to see someone these days with so much faith in our defense and 
national security agencies. And hey, don't worry about them UFOs 
either. You know, that's all a bunch of nonsense too, right? 

For anyone interested in new-physics and gravity control, I suggest
you start by studying the patents. Wallace's invention does work. 
Stay tuned. More forthcoming.
