The Fiber-Fuse Effect
Transducing Time into Energy

(Excerpted from "Matters Arising")

After all that preceding background, we are now ready to return to arrays of semiconductors that use very sophisticated feedforward and feedback.

We add one additional fact: Germanium has a unique characteristic. There is some transduction of transverse waves into surface longitudinal waves, and vice versa, in germanium. This means that germanium transistors or semiconductors can give — under the right circumstances — a little transduction between the net time-oscillation EM waves and ordinary transverse EM waves. In the transduction, "decompression" of a minuscule bit of time gives extra energy.

As an example of the Germanium anomaly, note that the eerie fiber fuse effect in fiber optics cables occurs only in cables containing germanium cores, and not at all in those containing cores with silicon and without germanium. Possibly the leading researcher in the fiber fuse effect is Russell. Some references are cited for the reader interested in pursuing that phenomenon, which demonstrates both overunity and time-reversal aspects.

Energy overall is still conserved, if we extend the present conservation law to include both "uncompressed" (transverse) EM wave energy and "compressed" (time-oscillatory) EM wave energy, in addition to the "compressed" mass-energy. It appears that germanium diodes and transistors — particularly in multiple arrays with sophisticated feedforward and feedback — can and do produce coherence in decompression of a bit of time-oscillating LWs into ordinary transverse energy-oscillating TWs.

In short, using germanium semiconductors, under the right circumstances one can get "free" excess energy from the transduction of a minuscule fraction of time flow into energy flow.

With multi-loop feedbacks and feedforwards, particularly lots of them, the individual germanium transistor may have multiple signals appearing upon it from many other transistors at once. Examine now those aspects of the transverse signals that "cancel" because of phase antiparallelism. Voila! The energies of the zeroing components exist and superpose, and the transistors also perform a little phase conjugation, adding phase conjugates. This means that elements of the time aspects in the "zero force field" stress oscillation wave are antiparallel. In short, now one begins to have pumping in the time domain.

When that occurs, we have a stress energy oscillation and also a time-stress oscillation component. That actually turns part of antiphased, zero-vector-summing EM waves into a time-oscillating spacetime curvature wave — a special kind of gravitational wave as we explained above — where the energy density (stress) of ST is oscillating, and the degree of forceful opposition of the time axis components is oscillating. In short, we have "time stress" oscillations as well. That makes an oscillating scalar potential (in terms of 3-space) and also an oscillating time wave. In short, that makes the new kind of t-polarized EM waves.

Russell, "Power Conservation and Field Structures in Uniform Dielectric Gratings," Journal of the Optical Society of America A, 1(3), Mar. 3, 1984, p. 293-299. Russell is actually referring to apparent violation of local conservation of energy. This is true if the vacuum-to-mass interaction is not taken into account (i.e., if the system is assumed to be a closed system, rather than the open dissipative system it is). Russell’s analysis therefore supports the fact that (i) the vacuum-mass interaction is required, (ii) the fiber fuse does gate and utilize some vacuum energy (i.e., from the usually non-diverged portion of the Poynting flow), and (iii) the fiber fuse is a legitimate, repeatable overunity process.
