Yes, I'm new to the AR forums -- however, I have read about prehistoric mythical aircraft before. I'm not fully versed in the Indian version but believe "flying chariots" were possible in antediluvian times. I have yet to personally see any real solid evidence proving the existence of any ancient aircraft capable of space travel though no matter how intriguing the data suggest.

I'm sure Mr. Childress' book is fascinating reading and apparently is based of some factual data -- however, having not read it, I can only assume his story is a mixture of fact and fiction, or what I call "faction". My Spirit of Atlantis book project also has some faction elements within because I could not wait to verify some theories and built new theoretical views on top of unverified theories -- which can sometimes result in more fiction than fact.

When researching prehistoric human history one has to speculate, but too much unverified speculation can take your research beyond the real and into the unreal. Since I'm trying to stay down to earth and within verifiable parameters with my research work so as to not lose the rational reader who thinks within certain scientific limitations, I do not open the door to unverifiable views like space beings from outer space and their spacecraft.

Don't get me wrong -- I have an active imagination regarding past and future technology, I am just not convinced in prehistoric space travel by our ancestors or any other beings. However, I do believe that primitive -- yet efficient, aeronautical travel was possible in antediluvian times.

I have read about the Sons of the Law of One -- the transcendentalists, and the Sons of Belial -- the materialists, the lost Pacific island of Mu and so forth. I'm sure some elements of the great battles between now lost kingdoms using prehistoric aircraft are true and, like you, believe the designs of said aircraft will be rediscovered and recreated someday.

Unlike the "carriage" design made popular in Indian mythology or the "flying carpet" design in Arabian mythology, the Atlantean SeaRam design I'm trying to resurrect uses a ram-like foil-wing that carries a payload which is propelled by a type of motor design not yet complete. You are correct about the parasitic drag effect that modern aircraft designers don't yet take into consideration -- however, my seaplane design is trying to accommodate a marine vessel for flight -- so there is still substantial parasitic drag. Perhaps your Ram Implosion Wing design concept is more applicable to the comet-shaped motor design as opposed to the entire craft. Look at the motor design I use for theoretical propulsion on my SeaRam seaplane and see if you could design a real working version. Controlled human flight using kite-like aircraft in ancient times is not that hard to believe, but sustained flight -- well, that's where it gets interesting.

In the beginning of the latest Disney movie about Atlantis some Atlantean pilots were escaping a great nuclear explosion using aircraft powered by some crystal device. Ever since the Star Trek television series, people want to believe future aeronautical motors will run on some sort of vibrating energy emitting from a rare type of crystal. The concept of energy emitting from a crystal that could make propulsion may be based on the crystal radio design concept wherein the power to operate the radio comes from the piezoelectric reaction energy transmitted to the crystal from a wireless static-field generator device. Trying to theorize how to redirect such vibrating crystal energy into propulsion forces is the challenge.

One theory I have regarding this theoretical propulsion motor is to somehow spin a particle-beam blade of vibrating crystal plasma fast enough and it should create a vortex of energy capable of "pushing air" if contained within a magnetic ring-like cowling. Anyway, that's the theory.

However aircraft were powered long ago or will be in the future, the technology of vortex mechanics should be there. I will check out your website and see your XP-3 research later tonight.

By the way, have you ever heard of the term "turbo-lift"? I believe it was used in some Star Trek episode regarding a type of breakthrough power creation technology which was capable of revolutionizing future energy needs. Perhaps we may be on the verge of something good here.


It seems that Volitzer is trying to explain he has discovered some sort of method of converting turbo energy into a power source which could help improve modern aeronautics but is having a time trying to explain how it works. I remember reading the scientific writings of the man who built Coral Castle here in south Florida where I live and he also talks about some sort of electromagnetic tool concept that was hard to understand -- but he did things that are still remarkable. He cut and moved huge multi-ton stones like no one has done since Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids of Egypt.

As far as space travel and beings from other worlds -- well, like I said in my last postů


I saw the link to the flying fan-ducted car -- I have the Popular Science article about the car from a couple of years ago. Two things that would bother me about flying such a craft -- the first is that flight safety relies on at least four separate motors running at all times for lift and I would prefer only one with a wing for backup if that failed.

The second thing would be the noise -- have you ever heard a conventional fan-ducted motor run? I have a small electric motor mounted to a fan-ducted model that is capable of a screaming sound -- I can only imagine if it was a large gas engine times four on takeoff.

Also, the performance of fan-ducted motors relies on the gap tolerances between prop and cowling -- the smaller the gap, the better the performance in directing prop vortex to thrust. However, any flux movement in the motor mount and cowling will cause the prop to strike the cowling -- thus causing performance problems over time.

And what you said to Starlight may have seem terse -- but was kinda funny. I hope Starlight is not offended. Perhaps a visit to the K-pax movie website to learn how starlight beams could be used in space travel would be nice. It's a great concept.


My SeaRam seaplane design includes a thermal-electric motor propulsion system that uses a conventional fan-ducted prop design. The SeaRam is based on the idea that a powerful light weight capacitor battery could drive an electric motor just long enough to provide maximum thrust to push the vessel high enough to where gravity and the power of the wind on a windy day -- together with good pilot skills, could stay aloft by flying at certain angles relative to the wind. If parasitic drag were kept to a minimum -- or at least placed in a small wake area that tapered inward near the rear, the design might work.

Moreover, powerful new electric motors like the ones found at www.solomontechnologies.com may be capable of charging the capacitor battery for further moments of needed thrust.

Eventually, a theoretical "particle-beam" prop design could replace the conventional metal prop design and may provide greater thrust capabilities.

In the meantime, trying to find or design a type of capacitor battery power source is the real challenge because current capacitors -- although capable of holding more volts than batteries of the same weight, are not designed to release their energy slow like a battery, but quickly -- which would cause wasted heat energy within most conventional electric motor designs.



Have you ever tried to design the foil wing within your Hyperbolic Vortex Amplification Implosion System (Hvais) using the Golden Section principal of Nature?

Check out the term "Golden Section" in the Glossary section of my SOA website:


And Volume 3, Chapter 7 of my SOA book project:


If shaped and designed properly, the wing foil can convert direct energy to torque energy. The shape looks like the Star Trek logo -- which is based on the prehistoric Lateen sail-rig used by the Atlanteans and the Phoenicians as a power source of turbo lifting their sailboats up wind. The first Latin letter "A" is based on this lost turbo-wing concept.


Is the Golden Section principle of proportion concept too abstract to understand or is it the concept of applying the 5/8 ratio of proportion to engineering design systems -- such as the wing foil dimensions of your "HVAIS" concept, that is too abstract to understand?

If it is the Golden Section concept, you can read up on that concept in any good encyclopedia under "Golden Section" or "Golden Mean".

If it is the art applying or designing the Golden Section proportion principle to engineering systems that seems too difficult to understand, then let me better explain.

Does your "HVAIS" concept employ a wing-foil design that converts direct kinetic energy into torque kinetic energy -- or does it attempt to merely improve torque energy by redirecting the fluid flow more efficiently?

In either concept, the proportions of your design -- be it the wing-foil proportions or funnel tube proportions, using the 5/8 ratio could improve performance. For example, look at the cross cut layout of a Nautilus shell and see the 5/8 ratio divide between the outer edges and the inner wall of the turbo design. If copied and employed properly within any engineering system, the 5/8 ratio of design should make for a better system because the design is better balanced than any other ratio formula.

I realize that applying the Golden Section principal of proportion to engineering systems does seem abstract, but in time perhaps it may dawn on you one day what I'm talking about.


Yes -- a scalable wedge wing design based on the Golden Section ratio formula made of a material that, when used as an cutting foil blade, can warp direct energy into torque energy or inversely warp torque energy into direct energy. Such a concept could revolutionize motor systems into creating better torque or thrust. It's like discovering a "warp drive" concept in certain propulsion systems.

Although still an abstract theory, some of the concept can be found in my SeaRam seaplane design. I have created small aluminum models of my aircraft using cola-can metal foil with a coin payload taped at the 5/8 ratio point whereby, when launched into a direct wind, the model can lift the load because the torque of each wing is balanced just right. With no wing displacement and little parasitic drag, the model, even in water, travels a very long way.

Keep exploring!
