Zero-point energy, vibrational energy that molecules retain even at the absolute
zero of temperature. Temperature in physics has been found to be a measure of the
intensity of random molecular motion, and it might be expected that, as temperature
is reduced to absolute zero, all motion ceases and molecules come to rest. In fact,
the motion corresponding to zero-point energy never vanishes.
Zero Point Energy
The greatest scientific discovery in the history of the world has happened over the
last few decades and it has gone largely unnoticed because of the great secrecy with
which it has been held by all who know of it. It is the discovery of a completely
new kind of electromagnetic waves which exist only in the vacuum of empty space,
the empty space between the atoms of our bodies as well as the empty space we see
in sky at night. All of empty space.
These waves constitute a kind of ocean of infinite energy, and it has now been discovered
that this abundant energy can be coaxed to pour into our 3-dimensional world from
their 4-dimensional realm, to be used to do work, provide electricity, power all
transport, and even heal the body of almost all disease. This is the new world of
scalar electromagnetics, the zero-point energy, the energy of the absolute nothingness
which existed before the world began.
Zero-point energy results from principles of quantum mechanics, the physics of subatomic
phenomena. Should the molecules ever come completely to rest, their component atoms
would be precisely located and would simultaneously have precisely specified velocities,
namely, of value zero. But it is an axiom of quantum mechanics that no object can
ever have precise values of position and velocity simultaneously (see uncertainty
principle); thus molecules can never come completely to rest.
Zero Point Physics
In physics, the zero-point energy is the lowest possible energy that a quantum mechanical
physical system may possess and is the energy of the ground state of the system.
The quantum mechanical system that encapsulates this energy is the zero-point field.
All quantum mechanical systems have zero point energy. The term arises commonly in
reference to the ground state of the quantum harmonic oscillator and its null oscillations.
In quantum field theory, it is a synonym for the vacuum energy, an amount of energy
associated with the vacuum of empty space. In cosmology, the vacuum energy is taken
to be the origin of the cosmological constant which is thought by many to produce
dark energy. Experimentally, the zero-point energy of the vacuum leads directly to
the Casimir effect, and is directly observable in nanoscale devices.
Because zero point energy is the lowest possible energy a system can have, this energy
cannot be removed from the system.
