The Basics of Zero Point Energy

When people begin to talk about zero point energy or overunity, the basic concept is to create a machine that will output more energy than is put into the system.
While this seems to defy common sense – after all, one minus one must equal zero, not 0.1 – when discussing the concept in the field of quantum physics it is more logical than one may believe. The United States National Aeronautical and Space Agency (NASA) has recently conducted some experiments in this area with a moderate degree of success.

Squeezing Out Energy

When working in space, which is almost a complete vacuum, what energy does exist exists in a number of forms: light, electromagnetic, etc. A principle of quantum physics known as the uncertainty principle, states that it is impossible to completely remove all the energy from a given space.

There will always be some amount of energy that remains. The amount of that energy is very small compared to the original amount present, but it is still measurable and present. It is this energy that scientists are attempting to capture and create an overunity generator.

Measuring the Energy

An interesting aspect of the amount of energy left over is that being able to capture it would result in the creation of an enormous amount of power. According to one description summarized by NASA scientists, if you take the amount of this “extra” uncaptured energy contained in a single cup of coffee, there would be enough energy available to boil down the entire water content of the world’s oceans. It is easy to see that the potential of zero point energy is huge if the energy can be captured and harnessed.

When considering the practical applications of overunity, the technology is a global energy game changer. If put in the context of automobile fuel efficiency, instead of getting 30 – 40 miles per gallon of fuel there would be the possibility of thousands of miles per gallon. This would make the carbon based, fossil fuel argument mute since the amount of pollution that would be produced would be one-thousandth of the current emissions. The advantages to companies and consumers would result in major positive economic shifts.
