On Star Trek, replicators can make whatever element anybody wants.� That technology may also exist in the GCs� treasure trove, but I am not specifically aware of it.� Almost all that I know and feel comfortable reporting regarding those hoarded technologies are what fellow travelers have described, usually by directly telling me what they witnessed.� The next chapter will present a vision in which manipulation on the nuclear level is not a regular practice, although I realize that it could well come to pass if it does not already exist, and that would make the next chapter�s vision potentially even more grand (or perilous).� Also, although I have heard rumors of time travel as another sequestered technology, and some have made public claims of their involvement in time-travel experiments, I have not had any close fellow travelers confirm that to me from their direct personal experience, so I will also lay aside that possibility in the next chapter.� Many differ ent technologies have been developed that attempted to harness the zero-point field, and devices made from rotating magnets seem to be the most common prototypes (the effect begins to appear at about 2,000 RPMs in properly constructed devices), but a solid-state device similar to what Sparky Sweet developed would be the likely �winner� in any FE device contest.� Sparky's explanation of how his device operated included concepts such as manipulating the space-time continuum, inter-dimensional energy transfer, and other fantastic ideas that nobody has an easy time comprehending.� Sparky's paper could be seen as merely pretty and fanciful theorizing, but his device worked.� I will never forget the awe in my close associate's voice as he described ice forming on Sparky's device as it began churning out electricity, and the wiring configuration defied conventional notions of electricity.� Ice forming on it, as it begins outputting great amounts of energy (Sparky's device produced one million times more energy than went into it), is not confined to Sparky's device; in the FE field, that effect is one of the most impressive pieces of evidence that a device is accessing the zero-point field.� A radically different physics than is taught to mainstream scientists in the early 21st century explains why Sparky's device worked.� Sparky's device also produced antigravity effects, and the electrogravity technologies for which the research went black in the 1950s needed vast amounts of energy to operate.� Those technologies have been developed far past what Sparky created in his home.� FE and antigravity are interrelated in more ways than one, and the vision presented in this chapter will assume that those technologies are universally used by humanity HISTORY OF CIVILIZATION Volume I (1): To 1648.
