Bob, I had the fortunate experience of spending ample time with Both Donald Hotson and Arthur Manelas.
I hosted Don for three days at my home in Massachusetts in 2005. I queried him about many aspects of his EPO model. I shared my early Manelas data with Don shortly before his death and he thought his model could account for the excess electrical power production. Alas, he died weeks later before he could explain his position. ________________________________ From: Bob Higgins <rj.bob.higg...@gmail.com> Sent: Saturday, October 21, 2017 10:38 AM To: email@example.com Subject: [Vo]:Pondering epos and implications to the ether 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.

I wonder whether, contrary to Hotson's wishes, a positive mass would nevertheless fall out of general relativity for such negative energy charges. Even weirder would be a negative mass. The weirdest of all, though, would be no mass. If E = mc^2 is to remain an invariant, it would seem that Hotson must either agree to negative mass: (-E) = (-m)c^2, or have another trick up his sleeve. Eric
