Looking for energy in all the wrong places. Plato's One vs. zero point energy as the ultimate source of energy. If we compare the metaphysics of Aristostle and Plato, we see that Aristotle's fundamental level is the bottom level of Being, that of matter. Plato's metraphysics, on the other hand, emerges from the top level of Being, Mind or Conscuiousness. So far, to my kniowledge at least, nobody has been able to extract energy from "zero point energy." So I suggest that we look at Plato's One as the ultimate energy source. Since there can be only one ultimate source, my speculation, guided by the lack of alternatives, is that Plato's One or consciousness is the ultimate source of energy. It is the subjective form of Aristotle's mattter. Following thermodynamics is a good analogy,
Perhaps infinite (or huge) energy comes from infinite non-entropy accessible to or as part of Mind. Infinite information would' be subjective. One also sees information generated I think by black holes. Then matter comes out of Mind. This is accord with thermodyanmics (2bd Law) in which energy (information) from the One (hot information) to the cold sink (cold energy, matter, earth, man) Dr. Roger B Clough NIST (ret.)
