Too bad that Don Hotson is now deceased. It would be wonderful to get his thinking on these questions.

While I described a vacuum lattice comprised of epos, each having an elementary magnetic dipole and a freely polarize-able electric dipole at a right angle, I didn't describe the effect of the matter (charges) in the universe that create a cosmic magnetic strain and electric polarization of this vacuum epo lattice. This cosmic strain in the vacuum lattice may be the zero-point energy. It is the effect of this cosmic strain in the vacuum epo lattice upon the epo alignments connecting the charges in real space that causes gravitational and inertial mass. Because of this, it is not clear to me that there would ever be a static negative mass - much to the consternation of Woodward would like to have such exotic matter to create warped space and wormholes. Zero mass is the domain of photons in real space or epos in negative energy space. I am obviously stretching the boundaries of my understanding here of even my own hypothesis. The interesting thing is to presume the hypothesis is true and expand upon it until predictions can be made that would be falsifiable.
