We know perpetual motion is impossible. So, consider this thought
at the top of a very big (1 mile say) mountain, we have a wormhole and
the other opening is at the bottom of the mountain.
Now a bowling ball is released at the top of the mountain and rolls
down the mountain.
At the bottom, it turns a turbine or otherwise generates electricity,
then we add a little energy to it to push it through the wormhole. At
the top of the mountain it rolls out and we complete the cycle.
What does this tell us?
It tells us that it must take WORK to push the bowling ball through
the wormhole, for it rises in gravitational potential energy when we
So, air is sucked down through the top wormhole and blows out of the
bottom wormhole due to the propagation of gravitational field lines
through the wormhole! Cool, huh?
So if you have a pair of wormholes, you can do two things: first, you
can put a windmill at the bottom wormhole and air or water will be
sucked through the top wormhole and spit out of the bottom one,
turning the turbine (windmill) and generating electricity! This lowers
the gravitational potential energy of the fluid. If it's a gas,
gravitational potential energy is proportional to temperature so the
fluid will effectively cool, yielding energy.
This is not impossible - it gets its energy from the same place a
balloon does - the Sun - although gravity tells the balloon what way
to go. Now the Earth is receiving enormous amounts of energy from the
Sun, and some of it is reflected back into space. But a lot is not!
This is "free" energy - available for our taking. If we could somehow
control the weather, if we knew chaos theory well enough a flock of
butterflies might flap their wings just so and we could produce a gust
of wind to turn our windmill. But we do not know how to do that.
But if you have two wormholes and a mountain, we CAN control the
weather, even going so far as to make a macroscopic gust of wind. The
wind (weather we made) gets its energy from the Sun by somewhat
indirect means. The second law of thermodynamics applies to CLOSED
systems. The Earth is receiving massive amounts of energy from the Sun
and is not closed, hence plants can grow and order can emerge from
Second, you can send information through a wormhole by placing an
electrically charged plate at one end and measuring the field strength
at the other end. We know field lines must propagate through wormholes
(else one could build a perpetual motion machine with bowling balls as
described above). It is not necessary to traverse a wormhole in order
to send information (maybe virtual particles traverse it however).
Does anyone know if it takes energy to sustain a wormhole? And what
are we to make of "exotic matter"? I don't have any to work with. Is
it necessary to make a wormhole?
I want to understand "wormhole theory". If you have a mountain and two
wormholes, a bowling ball placed just below the top wormhole will fall
"up" through the wormhole and then come shooting out - at terrific
speed - the bottom wormhole. It will be as fast as if the bowling ball
had rolled down the mountain, without friction!
Thus wormholes can be used to create artificial gravity.
Now does wormhole theory speculate that there is no gravitational
field outside the wormhole? We know from energy conservation that
field lines propagate through wormholes.
I read that it takes only a little energy to make a Planck-sized
"point" arbitrarily roomy on the inside. Reportedly this makes it
possible to make a tiny wormhole, which needs only a little energy,
and you can then pass through it, in principle.
How can I model space-time distortion? I have books on general
relativity but they say blah blah blah tensor blah blah blah and do
not go into too much detail about what a tensor is or why I need it. I
understand 2 dimensional matrices. Tensors have superscript and
subscripts. Einstein notation is tough for the beginner, like me.
