From: Chris Zell ➢ OK, here’s my current puzzlement: is it possible that physics has ignored a free energy effect within rotational inertia? It is possible that a gainful effect has been overlooked, and that is why it is fun to figure out which of these vids are faked. Rotational anomalies are probably the closest to showing a valid anomaly but most of the videos are fakes. Hopefully the one in thousand will show up soon. There are spatial avenues for augmenting inertia – such as the DCE (dynamical Casimir effect).
However, since no one has been able to demonstrate a device that shows true gain … unequivocally, and which has been fully replicated, the Laws of Thermodynamics are still on the books (but they are not true Laws and will fizzle away IF adequate scientific proof arrives, even if the gain is slight). The reason for the original comment on the reality of a magnetic spin vortex (or unreality) was the approaching possibility of RTSC. For instance, if the following video was done in a vacuum with a disk of RTSC then we would have something more relevant to talk about. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRby1Wilv-Q For now, the bubbles take the place of Mr Hand, which is the usual culprit. Since the vid above was never done without bubbles AFIK we have little to go on for a claim of true gain, other than a reasonable probability that a disk of RTSC could be fabricated with engineered line-pinning which permitted and even encouraged anisotropy, as in the Nature piece. Think helicity and chirality. Electronic nematicity would need to have the nematic director both aligned with the crystal axis and deliberately off axis in places giving engrained helicity. I will ask Ron Kita to provide a recipe for favored Chiral helicity when the time is right. First we have to make that disk of RTSC.
