Memory Lane

At the Memory Lane, the discoveries and efforts leading up to the S.H.O. Drive are cataloged.

Comment Record

The scope of the Memory Lane will be contingent on whether S.H.O. Drive works or not as well as depending on how the public responds to it. Sincerely, S.H.O. talk 14:00, 4 November 2016 (PDT)

Ideas Inspired from the Syntheses of Other Ideas (2000's to present)

The Energy Machine of Joseph Newman

Prior to development of the S.H.O. Drive, I was making electric motors, which I (loosely and erroneously) referred to as "Newman Motors", although none of them could be considered an actual replication of Joseph Westley Newman's Energy Machine[1]. I originally heard about Joseph Westley Newman's Energy Machine nine years ago to this day, on November 4, 2007[1]. Within months, I produced many very simple electric motor devices with my limited understanding of the concepts put forth by Joseph Newman[1] in his book, The Energy Machine of Joseph Newman[2][3][4].

Due to the complexity of the commutator design of Newman's Energy Machine, few have been able to construct their devices in the way that the inventor, Joseph Westley Newman, describes in his book. Even fewer built a Newman Energy Machine large enough to possess a sufficiently large Magnetic Vector Potential in order to operate as Newman claims. Joseph Newman mentions the vector potential himself[5], and so did one of his endorsers, Robert Joseph Matherne[6]. The Magnetic Vector Potential due to the permanent magnets inside Newman motors becomes signficant due to an alignment of a great number of bound electron supercurrents in atomic matter. These atomic supercurrents are accurately described by the work of Dr. Randell Lee Mills[7], who does not himself support Newman's theory but nevertheless is as persistent and determined as Joseph Westley Newman in challenging many standard assumptions of 20th Century physics[8], while being much more competent in many areas[9][10].

Any actual Newman Energy Machine depended on a very large magnet, and it turns out that the Magnetic Vector Potential $\mathbf{A} = \vec A$ scales with the size of the magnet even if the peak magnetic flux density $\mathbf{B} = \vec B$ does not. This year (2016), I proposed a force acting on changing current densities subject to a Magnetic Vector Potential. [...] While this synthesis of ideas remains a work in progress, its current level of development is sufficient to justify an experiment which will either validate or invalidate the concept of a S.H.O. Drive. Sincerely, S.H.O. talk 14:00, 4 November 2016 (PDT)
