A Floating City By Jules Verne
eBook (ePub): $4.99
(1 Ratings)
A Floating City, enjoyed a popularity almost equal to that of Round the World in Eighty Days. It was the direct result of the trip which the author actually made to America in 1867, on the largest... More > iron ship ever built. He gives us a faithful picture of the natural and usual incidents of an ocean voyage of those days, enlivening these by introducing a romance aboard ship. The pictures of the “Great Eastern,” are of course exaggerated, not so much in words themselves as in the impressions they convey. But the pictures of New York and of Niagara are the genuine imprint made upon the great writer by his visit.< Less

City In the Sky By Richard Lighthouse
eBook (ePub): $0.00
This short technical paper describes the basic theory and design for floating cities in the clouds, which have been described in numerous science fiction books and movies. Any structure or object can... More > be made to behave as though it were essentially massless. This is done by synchronizing an electrical signal on the surface of the object with the blinking frequency of our universe (Lighthouse Frequency) which is 1.039 THz. Imagine a sine wave split by the x-axis with the top half representing matter and the bottom half representing antimatter. The x-axis being sequential time, in our terms. Each time the sine wave crosses the x-axis, all fundamental forces collapse to zero. When we synchronize an electrical signal with the sine wave, just before crossing the x-axis, all objects and structures will behave as though they are massless. Note that this feature explains the Hutchison Effect, which is basically operating at a harmonic of the Lighthouse Frequency.< Less
