      The purpose of the present work is to trace parallels between the known inertia forces in fluiddynamics with the inertia forces in electromagnetism that are known to induce resistance forces onmasses both due to acceleration and at constant velocity. It is shown that the force exerted on aparticle by an ideal fluid produces two effects: i) resistance to acceleration and, ii) an increase ofmass with velocity. These resistance forces arise due to the fluid dragged by the particle, where thebare mass of the particle at rest changes when in motion (“dressed” particle). It is demonstratedthat the vector potential created by a charged particle in motion acts as an ideal space flow thatsurrounds the particle. The interaction between the particle and the entrained space flow gives riseto the observed properties of inertia and the relativistic increase of mass. Parallels are madebetween the inertia property of matter, electromagnetism and the hydrodynamic drag in potentialflow. Accordingly, in this framework the non resistance of a particle in uniform motion through anideal fluid (D’Alembert’s paradox) corresponds to Newton’s first law. The law of inertia suggeststhat the physical vacuum can be modeled as an ideal fluid, agreeing with the space-time ideal fluidapproach from general relativity.

      The present invention relates to a new form of aerial, terrestrial, underwater or space propulsion, achieved through the manipulation (or engineering) of the vacuum with the proper electromagnetic interactions. This vacuum manipulation will allow the use of a new form of propulsion, and has applications in energy production and on the change of the time decay of radioactive elements. Opposing magnetic or electric fields create a mass repelling force, while attracting magnetic or electric fields create a mass attracting force. In particular, this vacuum manipulation process can be used to propel a mass (6) that contains the field sources that perturb the vacuum. One possible application is the creation of a repulsion point (48) in space through the interference of two or more longitudinal electrodynamic wave beams (46), which cause a repulsion force on mass (6).


      1. Device for vacuum manipulation (antigravity propulsion through the repulsion or attraction of a mass like planet Earth (7) or a general mass (6)), characterized by a geometric (or not geometric) arrangement of at least one pair (two magnets or any other number) of magnets (20) with the north pole or the south pole in opposition (disposed in the same parallel plane, or at a perpendicular plane, or at any desired angle or angles) ; or were the magnets are arranged symmetrically (circular, hexagonal or any other) or asymmetrically (semicircular, conic, pyramidal, or any other) ; or by the magnets being disposed in a way to oppose the magnetic vector potential component (with magnetic poles face to face, or side to side, or at any other angle) in order to stress the vacuum and create a gravitational repulsive force on nearby masses (if the mentioned magnets are disposed with the magnetic vector potentials in attraction, with their vectors in the same direction, then they would generate an attractive gravitational force instead) ; or by the possibility of using a grid of multiple repelling (or attracting) magnets (20) with (or without) coil or coils (14) wrapped around them (each magnet or the whole or partial assembly of magnets) ; or by one or more magnets being wrapped by one or more coils (14) .

      I find it quite weird, but some thinks it may be related to EmDrive. Maybe someone can explain the possible parallels.
      I don't understand enough to have a serious opinion ;(
