Shape and geometric form in teleportation

Now who would have thought that a simple structure such as a pyramid could do such things and yet we have succeeded in doing it and did it back in the 70’s. So if geometric shape has the power to harness a dynamic force powerful enough to create such an effect then who is to say it cannot do more.

Shape and geometric principles have been missunderstood by science and humanity for many years and it is about time it was understood. We have worked with these principles for years and can tell you it is amazing what you can do with it.

Who remembers the days of pyramids sharpening razor blades or drying meat or other little experiments that were done worldwide.

If not here are some facts that many refused to accept back then. Bit like global warming and pollution control etc it was also reputed to be nonesense back then and yet here we are!

I say science is blind if the scientist is closed minded and is not prepared to accept alternatives that could exist and take the time to investigate.

After all is not science the art of understanding what is currently not known.

That covers a large area and you have to be open minded about it all. I remember the days just before and even during the early days of hubble when astronomers said if they point hubble at a darl area of space young or forming galaxies would be found and yet they were wrong older galaxies were found.

Just because you think you know does not make it so. Work towards knowing and go from there.

Teleportation is the knowledge of matter transforming and sending on an energy wave that can cover a specified distance and arrive  and reform in the same way it is structured. To accomplish this one needs to understand the aspects of matter physics in a way never before realised.

Transmitting matter over a wave form is not that difficult but keep it stable is. Thats where geometric shape comes into it. By holding the pattern in a shaped geometric form it will not degrade. A specific shaped type of crystal will do it. With 12 sides helps and size does matter.

    Quantum Teleportation

    In the past, the idea of teleportation was not taken very seriously by scientists, because it was thought to violate the uncertainty principle of quantum mechanics, which forbids any measuring or scanning process from extracting all the information in an atom or other object. According to the uncertainty principle, the more accurately an object is scanned, the more it is disturbed by the scanning process, until one reaches a point where the object’s original state has been completely disrupted, still without having extracted enough information to make a perfect replica. This sounds like a solid argument against teleportation: if one cannot extract enough information from an object to make a perfect copy, it would seem that a perfect copy cannot be made. But the six scientists found a way to make an end run around this logic, using a celebrated and paradoxical feature of quantum mechanics known as the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen effect. In brief, they found a way to scan out part of the information from an object A, which one wishes to teleport, while causing the remaining, unscanned, part of the information to pass, via the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen effect, into another object C which has never been in contact with A. Later, by applying to C a treatment depending on the scanned-out information, it is possible to maneuver C into exactly the same state as A was in before it was scanned. A itself is no longer in that state, having been thoroughly disrupted by the scanning, so what has been achieved is teleportation, not replication.

    Deterministic Quantum-State Teleportation Achieved With High Fidelity

    By Bill Christensen
    Technovelgy.com

    Teleportation, the transfer of quantum states between widely separated atoms, was achieved by different research teams in Austria and the United States.

    …it has been shown that the entangling properties of quantum mechanics, in combination with classical communication, allow quantum-state teleportation to be performed. Teleportation using pairs of entangled photons has been demonstrated, but such techniques are probabalistic, requiring post-selection of measured photons. Here, we report deterministic quantum-state teleportation between a pair of trapped calcium ions. Following closely the original proposal, we create a highly entangled pair of ions and perform a complete Bell-state measurement involving one ion from this pair and a third source ion. Site reconstruction conditioned on this measurement is then performed on the other half of the entangled pair. The measured fidelity is 75%, demonstrating unequivocally the quantum nature of the process.”

    Danish scientists achieve advanced quantum teleportation

    Danish scientists at Copenhagen University have made a breakthrough in the wacky world of quantum teleportation by transporting quantum information over a distance of half a meter (1.6 feet). In order to achieve this, Dr. Eugene Polzik and his team shined a strong laser beam into a cloud of room-temperature cesium atoms that shared the same directional spin. As Scientific American reports: “The laser became entangled with the collective spin of the cloud, meaning that the quantum states of laser and gas shared the same amplitude but had opposite phases. The goal was to transfer, or teleport, the quantum state of a second light beam onto the cloud.” (It should be noted that this process is more akin to duplication than actual teleportation, i.e. using this method on a human being would result in the formation of a doppelganger and not a magical Star Trek-like movement of matter). To achieve this goal, Polzik and other scientists added a second weaker laser pulse and split the two beams into separate branches in order to measure the difference between the quantum phases; through that measurement the scientists were then able to transfer the information of the spin state of the weak laser to the combination of the cesium atoms and the strong laser, without disturbing the quantum entanglement between the laser and the cesium. Umm, so the short of it is: one small step for a cesium atom, but one giant leap for quantum computing research and the advancement of teleportation theory.

    Quantum teleportation…. is not the same as teleportation as in “beam me up scotty”.
    No matter or energy is teleported, only the quantum state of the atom or photon, so the laws of physics are not broken. This is a known phonomena and is nothing new or physics-law-breaking.

    Quantum teleportation takes a leap It has been done before - between two light beams. But for the first time, scientists have managed to teleport between objects of a different nature - light and matter. Unlike the customary conception of “beaming” however, it is not a matter here of a particle disappearing from one place and re-appearing in another. “Quantum teleportation constitutes methods of communication for application in quantum cryptography, the decoding of data, and not new kinds of transportation”, says one of the scientists, Dr. Klemens Hammerer. The result will have practical application in realizing quantum computers or transmitting coded data (quantum cryptography).

    A STRANGE HISTORICAL ACCOUNT OF A PURPORTED HUMAN BEING TELEPORTED

    Gil Perez

    On the evening of October 24, 1593, a Guardia Civil, Gil Perez, is said to have appeared suddenly in a confused state in the Plaza Mayor of Mexico City, wearing the uniform of a Philippine regiment. He claimed that moments before finding himself in Mexico he had been on sentry duty in Manila at the governor’s palace. He admitted that while he was aware that he was no longer in the Philippines, he had no idea where he was or how he came to be there. He said the governor, Don Gomez Perez Dasmariñas, had been assassinated.

    When it was explained to him that he was now in Mexico City, Perez refused to believe it saying that he had received his orders on the morning of October 23 in Manila Philippines and that it was therefore impossible for him to be in Mexico City on the evening of the 24th. The authorities placed Perez in jail, as a deserter and for the possibility that he may have been in the service of Satan. The Most Holy Tribunal of the Inquisition questioned the soldier, but all he could say in his defense was that he had traveled from Manila to Mexico “in less time than it takes a cock to crow”.

    Two months later, news from the Philippines arrived by Manila Galleon, confirming the fact of the literal axing on October 23 of Dasmariñas in a mutiny of Chinese rowers, as well as other points of the mysterious soldier’s fantastic story. Witnesses confirmed that Gil Perez had indeed been on duty in Manila just before arriving in Mexico. Furthermore, one of the passengers on the ship recognized Perez and swore that he had seen him in the Philippines on October 23. Gil Perez eventually returned to the Philippines and took up his former position as a palace guard, living thenceforth an apparently uneventful life.

    I GREETED MYSELF IN THE PYRAMID AS AN ATLANTEAN SCIENTIST by Misty

    One afternoon in June 1980, while on holiday in Egypt, I entered the Kings Chamber of the Pyramid of Giza in Cairo and had an overwhelming deja vu. I thought, ‘I’ve been in here before and furthermore I’m still in here now– as an Atlantean scientist!’ Then the scene changed and this world was overridden for some seconds and interspersed with another one where I was standing as my present self, inside the chamber and surrounded with all this Atlantean technology. It was wall to wall from the top to the bottom with small lights and machines with dials. There were a few men standing there who were also from Atlantis and they were scientists.
    I remember seeing the present ‘reality’, which appeared on top of the Atlantean background recede into the four walls. After a few moments it returned and the present reality solidified again–the gasses of the air rearranging themselves as before. I’m sure wall magnets withdrew a layer of the reality of that hour in 1980 into a sort of ‘freeze frame’ and held it in some holding area, putting that moment of time into another form. Time was bent into four loops within a sectioned off area of space. Lasers embedded in the four corners of the room sliced a cross into the ethers, up to a central circle which was cut out of the centre, about three feet across. The alteration of time was only manipulated in the cut out four sections leaving the centre in which I stood completely untouched. This ensured my ‘timeline’ wasn’t broken apparently.
    A similarity is found in a mini vortex, where a person once walked across a field and then vanished, and he was heard yelling from a distance.”I can’t find the opening to get back”. He was never seen again, because he went into the next dimension through a thin section of the veil. There are stories of this happening in early Ireland, however some returned but to a few years later. But it seemed to them to be only hours. However, in my case a vortex was created around me which left me as is and intact, while the time also apparently operated concurrently as Atlantean time. This enabled people to move through time and into the next dimension to operate in the time tunnel I was in, as they wished. I was magically transported back to appear in their Atlantis, but apparently never physically left the present.
    For a moment my world was taken from me, but it was my immediate surroundings that were transported back in time. The Atlanteans only removed the most dense (chemical) ether representation of that which we term physical ‘reality’. The scene was still existing, slightly missing some earthly density. The 4 ethers (i.e. chemical, life, light and reflecting) were deliberately separated and split away, to remove a part of physical reality, leaving mainly the parallel universe (comprising the other 3 ethers: life, light and reflecting) in a secondary time portal, surrounding the 3 feet one I stood in. The lowest (most dense) ether, the chemical ether was temporarily removed. When the Atlantean scientists were finished, they then restored it. However I don’t think this could be done with the other ethers. If you think of this physical world as being made of solids, liquids and gases - the ethers comprise the bits we can’t see that are too fine to be visible. These are the bits the Atlanteans manipulated…

    UNKNOWN “STRUCTURES TUGGING AT UNIVERSE,STUDY SAYS

    (John Roach for ‘National Geographic News’:November 5, 2008

    Something may be out there. Way out there.

    On the outskirts of creation, unknown, unseen “structures” are tugging on our universe like cosmic magnets, a controversial new study says. Everything in the known universe is said to be racing toward the massive clumps of matter at more than 2 million miles (3.2 million kilometers) an hour—a movement the researchers have dubbed dark flow.

    The presence of the extra-universal matter suggests that our universe is part of something bigger—a multiverse—and that whatever is out there is very different from the universe we know, according to study leader Alexander Kashlinsky, an astrophysicist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.

    The theory could rewrite the laws of physics. Current models say the known, or visible, universe—which extends as far as light could have traveled since the big bang—is essentially the same as the rest of space-time (the three dimensions of space plus time).

    Picturing Dark Flow

    Dark flow was named in a nod to dark energy and dark matter—two other unexplained astrophysical phenomena.

    The newfound flow cannot be explained by, and is not directly related to, the expansion of the universe, though the researchers believe the two types of movement are happening at the same time.

    In an attempt to simplify the mind-bending concept, Kashlinsky says to picture yourself floating in the middle of a vast ocean. As far as the eye can see, the ocean is smooth and the same in every direction, just as most astronomers believe the universe is. You would think that beyond the horizon, therefore, nothing is different.

    “But then you discover a faint but coherent flow in your ocean,” Kashlinsky said. “You would deduce that the entire cosmos is not exactly like what you can see within your own horizon.”

    There must be an out-of-sight mountain river or ravine pushing or pulling the water. Or in the cosmological case, Kashlinsky speculates that “this motion is caused by structures well beyond the current cosmological horizon, which is more than 14 billion light-years away.”

    ‘The Culture of Science’

    by

    Jayant Vishnu Narlikar

    (Emeritus Professor, Inter-University Centre for

    Astronomy and Astrophysics, Pune, India)

    Halton C. Arp is an experienced observational astronomer who was trained under Edwin Hubble, the astronomer credited with the discovery of the expansion of the universe. Hubble’s law forms the foundation of modern cosmology. Arp himself has many discoveries to his credit and his atlas of peculiar galaxies is a standard source-book for all modern observers. Yet since the 1970s Arp has been finding several cases of galaxies and quasars which don’t fit into the Hubble expansion picture. These are known as anomalous observations. To understand their significance, let us look at Hubble’s law.

    Hubble’s law states that the speed of recession of a galaxy, that is the speed with which it appears to move away from us increases in proportion to its distance. So the phenomenon that Hubble found was that there are many galaxies all around us in different directions. Whichever galaxy you look at is going away from us and if two galaxies are at the same distance they move at the same speed. Thus if galaxy A is twice as far away from us than galaxy B, then it moves away from us with speed twice that of B. Likewise, if two galaxies are near neighbours, then their speeds of recession should be nearly equal.
    A typical anomalous observation may show two objects, say two galaxies, lying very close to each other on the sky, with apparent velocities of recession very different from each other. Sometimes you see that two galaxies are connected by a filament so they have to be very close to each other but their speeds are different. So if these galaxies are going away from us with significantly different velocities, even though they appear to be near neighbours, this result is in clear violation of Hubble’s law.

    The establishment’s reaction to this type of anomalous evidence ranges from disbelief, anger, to plain apathy…for, to face it squarely would involve questioning, or seriously modifying, the existing paradigm in cosmology. After Arp’s early discoveries of such anomalous cases, he was told that these are perhaps some freak cases and may not be indicative of a real discrepancy. However, with time and more observations, Arp could produce more and more such examples. So a stage came in the early 1980s, when the leading observatories closed their domes to Arp, on the grounds that what he discovers from his observations does not make sense (!)…because, it does not fit into the existing paradigm. Today, the list of anomalous cases has grown and diversified into several different types, all inconsistent with Hubble’s law. There are a handful of workers who have been steadily discovering such examples.

    When accounts of such cases are submitted to research journals, these do not take kindly to publishing them. Scientists refuse to debate the issue in international conferences: they would sooner forget it altogether. (Recall the example of no records being kept of the Crab Supernova by the medieval monks because the event did not fit into their paradigm.) The message therefore is, that in order to succeed in science you must learn to conform. No wonder, young research workers hesitate to enter this contentious field.

    The history of science has shown that anomalies are often significant as they are nature’s way of disclosing a new secret. It behoves the true scientific spirit of exploration to go deeper into such cases. They may either turn out to be spurious, in which case the existing paradigm is further strengthened; or they may reveal a hitherto unknown fact. However by ignoring anomalous cases or positively discouraging their investigations, we may be closing the door on something new. In such an environment how can new ideas prosper in science? This is the serious crisis faced by the current culture of science.

    PYRAMID RESEARCH AND PYRAMID RESEARCH PROJECTS

    (From “Pyramid Power” )by G. Pat Flanagan:

    I read with great interest the report by Bovis describing his discovery of the mummifying power of the shape of the Great Pyramid.

    Having been experimenting and measuring bio-energy with the Neurophone and various other instruments described earlier, I began a series of intensive experiments on the shape of the Great Pyramid to see if I could discover its great secrets. I began by duplicating Bovis’ experiments with pyramids of various dimensions. Using Kirlian photography, GSR, voltage differential, and electrostatic fields, I was able to measure the differences of various pyramids and their effects on living organisms such as plants and people.

    The very first experiments were in the area of preserving hamburger meat, liver, eggs, and milk. The first experiments were very encouraging.

    It was strange to realize I had taken small pieces of cardboard and made a simple shape that could concentrate some sort of energy that would mummify food without any external power source. My controls all got so bad I had to throw them away.
    Bovis and Drbal had indicated in their reports that the energy was focused in the King’s Chamber level bout one third up from the base in the middle of the pyramid.

    My own research indicates that the energy is present throughout the pyramid. I was able to mummify food anywhere in the pyramid.

    By careful measurement, I was able to determine that the maximum concentration of effect was in the King’s Chamber, but there were effects in the other areas of the whole pyramid. Further research with various materials of construction revealed further clues as to the nature of the phenomenon we were investigating.

    A series of energy measuring machines will be described. Some of these machines measure the effects of the energy on other things, others are esoteric machines which are extremely sophisticated dowsing devices that rely on the human computer as a readout detector.

    I have tried various other geometric shapes other than the pyramid and have not had the results obtained with the exact shape of the Pyramid of Gizeh.

    Other geometric structures such as cones, icosahedrons, dodecahedrons, tetrahedrons, octahedrons, greater stellated dodecahedrons, etc. all have shape characteristics, but these other shapes do not have any effects demonstrated by the exact pyramid shape to be described.

    PYRAMID POWER AND OTHER EFFECTS from Jeff Johnston
    ———————————————————————-

    some of my research was based on following experiments that other people have performed. The one item that got me started was an electron microscopic photograph of a razor blade that had been treated in a pyramid. There was a BEFORE and AFTER shot showing how the metal had re-generated itself at the crystalline level. I found this very
    interesting, because to me it seemed like pretty good verification for
    some kind of effect. I suspect that multiple frequencies are involved and
    that is why I branched out in the direction of bio-medical effects, i.e.
    brainwave activity, some form that could be tried out with different
    people under different circumstances, to see any consistancy of effects. I
    did this research and other experiments that I haven’t described yet,
    about 8 or 9 years ago. This pyramid power effect is only part of what I
    have been tracking as a larger effect that works in other areas too. This
    may sound a little crazy but from what I can tell so far from my research,
    it is linked to type of “Earth Energy Effect” (I need some sort of name to
    try to describe this) that has been used in various forms throughout what
    we know as “recorded history”. When I have more time available I will
    attempt to write a summary of experiments performed over the last 20
    years. This involves pyramid power and other related material.
    One of my conclusions is that SHAPE has an effect on surrounding
    matter, and that it doesn’t have to be in the exact shape of a pyramid to
    have an effect. For example, I have experimented with altering the base
    angle to apex ratio and found that other shapes will work also. This led
    me into another area in the design of antennas for capturing this type of
    energy. I built a few prototype designs that were not even square and
    still got some results. Not always as good results as using a standard
    pyramid, but they did something. To answer your question: YES. The longest running experiment that I did in this area was a preservation experiment that lasted 18 months. I used a piece of raw pork. If anything is going to go bad, raw pork will in about 48 hours. After 18 months there was no evidence of it smelling or being bad…

    MILKY WAY 50 PERCENT LARGER ,ASTRONOMERS DISCOVER

    (By Alexis Madrigal, January 05, 2009)

    Artist’s conceptions of the Milky Way might give you the impression that astronomers have a precise notion of what our galaxy looks like, but you’d be wrong. In fact, new observations suggest that our home galaxy has been vastly underestimated.

    Those spiraling arms? Some scientists think it only has two, not four. Its size? For years, we thought that the Milky Way was substantially smaller than our closest galactic neighbor, the Andromeda Galaxy.

    Now, new measurements of how quickly our galaxy is rotating have led a team of Harvard astrophysicists to conclude that our galaxy is 50 percent more massive than previously thought, and likely does have four arms.
    “We should certainly think of the Milky Way no longer as the little sister of the local group,” said Mark Reid of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. “We should think of the Milky Way and Andromeda as more like fraternal twins.”

    The question of what exactly our galaxy looks like is more difficult to solve than you might think. We’re inside the galaxy, so we can’t get direct perspective on our home. The best method is to measure how quickly the galaxy is rotating and back out to the amount of mass that would have to exist in the structure to generate that velocity.

    Using the Very Large Baseline Array of radio telescopes, Reid’s team found that the Milky Way is rotating at about 600,000 miles an hour, 100,000 miles per hour faster than previous estimates. When you do the math, that translates into the 50 percent mass increase his team reported in a press conference at the American Astronomical Society meeting Monday. One major consequence of a heavier Milky Way is that we’re likely to collide with the Andromeda Galaxy sooner, Reid said.

    The new measurements also seem to indicate that the galaxy must have the four arms that astronomers had long assumed before Spitzer Space Telescope observations last year called that into question.

    “By measuring distances to regions of very massive star formation, we can start to trace out the spiral arms of the Milky Way and begin to constrain how tightly wound the arms are and trace out how many of them there are,” Reid said.

    With the new array of radio telescopes, the team has been able to make more precise measurements than ever before.

    “We’re using trigonometric parallax. It’s essentially what surveyors do here on Earth,” he said. “If you know the length of one leg of the triangle and the angles between the legs, you can calculate all the lengths.”

    In this case, they make an observation of the same region at two different times of the year, creating a triangle out of the earth’s two positions and the star itself.

    As for the discrepancy with the Spitzer’s findings about the number of arms our galaxy has, Reid explained that he thought the old stars measured by the other group of astronomers only showed up in two of the arms, while his young stars showed up everywhere. Why only two of the galaxy’s four arms would contain older stars would take further research into the galaxy’s makeup.

    “The central question here is: What does the Milky Way really look like?” Reid said.
