RAPID DEVELOPMENTS REQUIRE RAPID RESPONSES
Hal Fox, Editor
In 1941 1 remember reading an article in "Astounding Science Fiction", the forerunner of "Analog". The article was about nuclear energy developments. The closing of the article was the concept that events are moving too fast to follow in a monthly magazine, you'll need to follow this topic in your local newspapers. Years later, the editor reported that this article was followed by a visit from officials of the U.S. government and that no more such articles on nuclear energy would be published. The next public information about nuclear energy was received at our camp site on the island of Leyte in the Philippines, where our group was scheduled to ship out for an invasion of an unannounced major Japanese island. That information was, of course, the dropping of the atomic bomb on Japan.
Events in new forms of nuclear energy and in other new technologies that comprise some of the articles in this issue of the "Journal of New Energy," are likewise developing too fast to follow in a quarterly journal. The development of low-energy nuclear reactions (unsupported by government funding) is one of these technologies that is rapidly developing. The development of an understanding of torsion fields is another technology that is almost unknown in North America and Europe but which has an extensive background of development in Russian-speaking countries. The article by George Miley is an example of the low-energy nuclear reactions and the three articles about torsion fields (Panov, et al.; Shakhparonov; & Akimov) are examples of important new technologies for which there are few, if any, peers in the United States.
Just as there were no peers that could really understand the implications of Stanley Pens and Martin Fleischmann's first article on "cold fusion", so also, are there no peers to comment adequately on the long history of the development of an understanding of torsion fields. Please note that Akimov's article has over 175 references, most of them in Russian.
Perhaps the most challenging concept that is a part of the torsion field technology is the experimental and theoretical demonstrations of field velocities that are orders of magnitude faster than the speed of light! While this claim will be met with immediate skepticism (and should be), those who would dismiss the theory and experimental evidence without investigation should examine the technical information before making public proclamations of the impossibility of such .super-luminal velocities.
What can be done to help speed the dissemination of such important new developments? One approach is for this journal's readers to also subscribe to the monthly newsletter, "New Energy News". This monthly newsletter is not required to use the sometimes lengthy peer-review process before publication. Therefore, each issue carries the latest publishable information about low- energy nuclear reactions and, hopefully, will be able to develop sources for monthly reports on such interesting topics as torsion fields, anti-gravity, and other novel developments.
At the present time, "New Energy News" is offering audio tapes of gravity waves. In addition, a gravity-wave detector (similar to the equipment used to make the audio tapes) is being offered for sale. It is this editor's judgement, that the so-called gravity waves and some of the torsion fields represent the same phenomenon. The gravity-wave detector shows evidence of superluminal velocities, according to the inventors.
This journal plans to provide its readers with the latest information in our combined and continuing quest for a fuller understanding of Nature. To ensure timely publication, we will do our best to have quick responses in our peer-review process. In addition, the editor reserves the right to publish some items as "editor's choice". In addition, this editor will also invite papers on some topics that will be published to allow our readers to serve as peer-reviewers. We welcome reader's letters, constructive criticism, and suggestions.
We also welcome technical papers on new energy subjects.
Theory papers, as well as experimental papers, are solicited. However, we prefer that this journal be more devoted to experimental evidence than to voluminous theory. For example, there are over 20 different theory papers on cold fusion none of which are entirely correct, according to peers. In our technical judgement, the paper by Ken Shoulders and Steve Shoulders explains more about the process of cold fusion than any of the other theoretical papers. (See Shoulders and Shoulders, "Observations on the Role of Charge Clusters in Nuclear Cluster Reactions", "J. of New Energy," vol. 1, no. 3, pp. 111-121.) Akimov's paper, in this issue, is an excellent example of a serious paper on a new (especially outside Russia) technology. Akimov has provided extensive references, has developed both the theoretical considerations, and has provided experimental and commercial device information. Furthermore, Akimov has addressed the unusual issue of explaining consciousness phenomena as well as physical phenomena.
If Akimov's (and others) report on the superluminal velocity of torsion fields is sustained by independent experimental evidence, then this new technology will provide extraordinary pressure for changes in the basic foundations of physics. It is worth noting that several conferences in Russia (some co-sponsored by French scientists) have strongly questioned the viability of special relativity in light of the scientific advances (including advances in torsion field technology).
If this editor is correct then the following topics will be of increasing interest and re-evaluation:
