WORLD where science and technology have evolved to the point
that human travel to nearby star systems is as much part of everyday
life as long business trips are to today's typical business travelers.
How would this society be different than the one we know?
If this question
seems too daring and its answer unlikely to have repercussions in
our lifetime, just consider the reaction our grandparents would
have had if they had been instantaneously transported forward in
time, from their mainly rural society into our high-tech world.
When my grandparents were born, the telephone was a curiosity, there
were no airplanes nor television, and cars were a luxury.
children take it for granted that a strange car called Sojourner
landed on Mars to "sniff'' its rocks, they use something called
the Internet for their research, and cell phones ring all around
them. If I want to travel anywhere on the planet, I can probably
get there in less than a day, along with thousands of other people.
the time factor. Until the end of the 19th century, scientists could
not even agree on the existence of atoms. By 1932, not only the
neutron, the proton, and the electron had been discovered, but anti-matter
was also known. By the end of the 20th century, every major hospital was using
atomic physics for diagnosis and treatment. The world will
change during our lifetimes much more than during those of our ancestors,
and much more rapidly.
So, I invite
you again to imagine a world as different from ours as ours is from
that of our great-grandparents. This world is not one hundred years
away. It's here now and it will unfold before our very eyes in the
next few years. We will see changes in science and technology that
will make Star Trek scripts look short-sighted and obsolete. These
grandiose changes are happening in our lifetimes.
Technologies Corporation grew out of the realization that important
scientific discoveries in recent years can translate into breakthrough
technologies in the areas of energy production and advanced propulsion
within very typical time horizons.
We derive the
name of our company from our awareness that these developments will
in the near future take us into interstellar space. However, our
thrust is on patenting, prototyping, testing, and bringing to market
products that will significantly affect the lives of every person
on the planet. For this purpose, we strive to conduct and to publish
high quality scientific research, we seek the advice of the most respected professionals in the field, and focus only on those
technologies that hold the promise to achieve massive returns for
In the last
few years, we have applied for a number of patents in the area of
revolutionary means of energy production. This means measurable
progress in the quest for fuel-free, by-product free energy, including
much more efficient approaches to traditional technologies, such
as solar energy, and power beaming. We are also currently working
on revolutionary means of fuel-free propulsion. Needless to say,
significant progress in both of these areas will have dramatic consequences
in the aerospace industry, among others.
technologies we are patenting will have an impact also in other
areas, such as integrated, semiconductor microelectromechanical
system engineering, atomic physics, and "intelligent'' devices.
We are especially interested in applications that will enable revolutionary
nanosurgical techniques, such as in targeted, minimally invasive
manipulation, removal, and destruction of individual cells in biological
Please, let us show you how we are pushing the frontiers of energy, advanced propulsion, and nanosurgery technology, among others, by exploiting the quantum vacuum. I hope that our presentation will stimulate and fascinate you as we explore the greatest adventure of our civilization.
