Gravity is nature’s most mysterious force – or is it? Einstein’s Relativity suggested that it’s not a force at all, but instead a curvature of time & space. His later research into Unified Field Theory physics extended this notion with the concept of torsion fields, which many physicists believe has the power to “uncurve” space and make possible a new generation of advanced propulsion devices.

“It is difficult to talk about what torsion fields really are. Let me cite a simple example. During the mid-sixties Sakharov, the famous scientist that fathered the Russian nuclear bomb program, suggested that the vacuum might not be empty and devoid of particles but full of untold energy. Scientists in the west viewed this from a Dirac’s quantum mechanics perspective suggesting that particles are instantaneously created and annihilated and when this occurs during the cycle of life and death, their fields also increase and decrease respectively. 

This involved electric, magnetic, and gravitic fields. The Russians viewed Sakharov’s words differently and developed the physical vacuum theory where the vacuum consists of spinors, a shorthand notation for tensors that possess an electric, magnetic, gravitic and spin field. These are two different paradigms and a physicist may favor one over the other and I am sure that some may argue with what I have already said.” — Paul Murad
