Glad you noticed it. Most of my messages never get answered or noticed. I guess they mostly get treated as spam. I try to not let it bother me.
Your paper is online now. I guess I was in a hurry to read it. It has a really ugly URL. It really needs to be under GravityResearchFoundation.Org domain.
The elastic vacuum – Samir D. Mathur, First Place Winner, Gravity Research Foundation essay context 2021
If you want this paper to have an impact, you will need to put your equations into a quantitative model, connect it to real data and have it online for everyone to use. If the methods are useful, it will get used. If they sit on paper, no one will likely use them. And, if every reader has to check your work and re-engineer the equations and calculations, gather the data themselves (including data embedded in thousands of PDFs and books and papers scattered over the whole world) then your good work might cause much wasted time for others, just gathering and organizing what you have already found – but “shared” in a form that dampens or extinguishes diffusion on the Internet.
If you want to talk, I am here. I wrote some notes for you below the line. Not many people have read them, yet.

In your paper you talk about microscopic black holes. These are not black holes. They are particle-antiparticle pairs like proton-antiproton, or electron-positron or any of a whole zoo of pairs. They are “black” in the sense that they have no electric (Coulomb) or magnetic dipole fields exposed that will interact with the electromagnetic sensors we use now. The positive and negative Coulomb fields cancel except at very short distances. The magnetic dipole field is the main part of their binding. The magnetic dipole interaction is also the main “nuclear force” in all nuclear reactions. Check. You will find it is so. and that the approximations all start with that.
So a proton-antiproton can have any quantized mass when the rotational energy stored in the magnetic and coulomb bonds is balanced. Coulomb attraction (1/r^2), magnetic dipole attraction (1/r^4 and higher moments), and centrifugal force. So probably many of the quark phenomena are simply these “invisible” (not seen by electromagnetic sensor because it has not exposed fuzzy fields like the Coulomb and magnetic fields). But it can be observed by modeling backwards from collision data. So I think this is the most likely “dark mass” “dark energy”. and it helps balance the original asymmetry between matter and antimatter better. The small bit of matter that is not in particle-antiparticle invisible pairs is in asymmetric pairs or separated pairs that have made other bonds into masses.
I have tried to calculate the spectrum for magnetically bound pairs since at least Jan 1981 when I wrote to Emilio Segre to ask about the positronium spectrum. The spin spin interaction for electron-positron is a long range magnetic dipole interaction term that is small because of the distances. But I asked what would happen if you bring two electrons or two protons or particle and antiparticle together close enough for the magnetic dipole (1/r^3) potential to balance the Coulomb (attraction or repulsion). Over the last few decades I have calculated the bound states. But I cannot yet run the simulations for magnetic dipole collisions to solve for the best way to hit what is a very narrow resonance condition for electron-proton magnetic binding, proton-proton magnetic binding, particle antiparticle magnetic binding.
All the isotopes that have magnetic moments can bind. It is a very good first approximation to the full solutions of the dynamic Schrodinger equation. You get that close and you have to use the nonlinear version because the vacuum is compressible. All the relativistic properties of the vacuum can be modeled from a compressible vacuum with Hagadorn temperature, the 3D wave equation solution for Schrodinger solitons as a bound. All the sheets and strings and bubbles and vortices are small but powerful induced particle antiparticle pairs bound magnetically and not showing electromagnetic fuzz.
The “cooper pair” has a proton-proton and electron-electron magnetic dipole bonding model that covers all the situations.

because they have general value to global searchers trying to find what is going on with gravitational engineering. I will eventually move them to GravityNotes.Org
I have been studying and mapping and checking developments in all parts of gravitational engineering for several decades. I am organizing and publishing my notes now. There is a lot. And I intend to give people tools to solve all the basic gravitational engineering problems – detection, speed of gravity calibration, imaging arrays, communication, simulated gravity fields, time dilation, gravitational GPS, and more.
I have a demonstration project using LIGO.caltech.edu and IRIS.edu data for imaging the moon and sun. But it takes a few days and I have been busy with the Internet Foundation. There are many resources for gravitational research on the Internet and many groups working, but the information and methods are scattered, incomplete, incompatible and the groups not working together globally and efficiently. The same same problems impede every topic and group on the Internet.
I am finding and helping groups already working on sensors, detector arrays, communication, levitation, industrial applications of acceleration fields, modeling and simulation. A few people send me papers for review (the next generation LIGO, big G experiments, gravimeter designs, and lots on building global communities – because gravitational engineering crosses all disciplines and all countries and all parts of society. It will replace much of electromagnetism in the next 100 years, just as electromagnetism changed society in this last 100 years.
Engineers build things that change peoples lives and the theorists come after and document it. That paradigm is old. Now the best practice is to let the theorists build quantitative models of new designs and to help build the tools that the engineers and new workers need to use gravitational methods.
The gravitational field at the surface of the earth is really tiny (10^-7 electron volts per atomic mass unit) and can easily be simulated now. It has taken technology 45 years (from my point of view) to have the kinds of computer processing and data collection and field generators to produce synthetic acceleration fields as smooth as the real thing. Probably even better than the natural field on earth or moon or mars or the sun.
I think I can save you a lot of time, if you want to work on gravitational engineering. That “engineering” aspect of gravitation is what Roger Babson cared about. I don’t make things myself, I track what everyone is doing and how it fits together. Give people the tools and methods and communities they need to make progress on a global scale. That is part of why I formed and have run the Internet Foundation for so many years.
I am not going to write more now. I have a lot to say or suggest, but I have been working on these problems for more than 50 years now, have seen too many variations and theories and tried to check many of them. My own views of the universe I guess are strictly mine now. If most of my messages are going to spam folders, I have wasted a lot of energy over the years trying to share things I found and know to be true and efficient.
I noticed you said “same fluctuations can get `stretched’ by the anti-trapped surfaces in an expanding cosmology, and that this stretching generates vacuum energy”. But in a statistical mechanical model of the vacuum, the fluctuations are the detectable evidence or signals of energy, the “anti-trapped” are called “free”, and it is the diffusing vacuum energy that expands the universe. The stretching is work done against some tension in another field.
The closest I have seen lately to what you are describing is the quark gluon plasma. At temperatures just above the Hagadorn temperature (about 155 MeV per particle) that is roughly equivalent to an expanding gas. At higher temperatures the quark gas has plasma properties and the magnetic and electric effects are much larger. It is these centers that drive the hadronization when the energy condenses back to matter. The “tension” is from magnetic binding of these small fluctuations that can be represented as nonlinear Schrodinger soliton solutions, the most basic of which is dipole or monopole oscillation with surface variations. The particle-antiparticle pairs can be represented as vortex pairs in a nearly incompressible vacuum. It is the compressibility of the vacuum that gives the equations identical for motion of matter through the vacuum near the speed of light that the aerodynamics community found when they tackled motion through a compressible fluid air to go past the speed of sound. The equations are identical. Not just similar. Identical and with Mach’s name and ideas in both. sqrt(1-(v/c)^2) where M = v/c is the Mach number for sound in atomic and molecular fluids, or the Mach number for matter moving through the vacuum fluctuations.
On the earth, most of the local gravitational potential variations are due to the sun and moon tidal potential changes and easily measured and used. The Japan earthquake registered on the superconducting gravimeter and broadband seismometer networks (seismometers can be operated as accelerometers, and a “gravimeter” is just an accelerometer that is sensitive enough to track precisely the sun and moon tidal signal.
I suggested to George Ridout Jr (I knew his father in the early days of the Gravity Research Foundation) that he put ALL the papers and submissions online, index them and provide a place for people to share and interact. Then, as members of a group, there would not be a problem of all these varied and inconsistent and often inconsiderate spam filters. Which, often as not, separate friends, or potential friends.
Donors generally fund things that will work and be successful, or that help many people, that save lives or save human time. I am looking at the “Campaign” page now and it is has zero detail and does the same things that everyone does and they don’t work in the long run. I know because I have looked at thousands of organizations on the Internet in the past 23 years of the Internet Foundation and worked for years with nonprofits and global communities. What is needed is a way for people to work together, to gather and compare and test the models and data and equations and equipment that is streaming in related to gravity. Gravitational engineering is exploding on the Internet, and the Gravity Research Foundation is not even playing catch up. Sorry to be a little upset, but I expected GRF to do a lot more over the last 4 decades. Even Robert Forward and Joe Weber knew that if you build a gravitational detector, and reference signals for lab measurements of the speed of gravity, you also have the components for gravitational communication. Arrays of detectors for gravitational imaging. And effective methods for simulating gravitational fields. Just this morning I was talking to a new microgravity group, and acoustic and electromagnetic microgravity methods can be applied to nullify gravity on the earth, and simulate it where stronger acceleration fields are needed. And I am working out the error terms – how close is this to natural gravitational fluctuations (gravitational noise, variations in acceleration of the individual parts of something) to say how close to “real” a field is. It has very specific consequences for long term stay in orbits, for space tourism, and for manufacturing on earth those things that grow best or work best in microgravity.
You can maybe tell I am a little upset and tired today. I cannot force people to read what I write and I am losing patience saying the same true things again and again. If the gravimeter design groups had listened to my suggestions, we would already have working global imaging arrays by now. LIGO listens, but they are slower than molasses in winter.
I found the groups working on “faster than light vehicles” and “faster than light communication”. There are tens of thousands of them, so that says it is a mature topic and needs to have a global community website where all of them can work together. There are tests, but just getting those people, with a passion for understanding and changing things, where new gravitational engineers can find community, a place to learn, and a place to contribute to the future. It if takes decades, that is fine, there is a lot of work to support “solar system colonization” needed. And most of the industries on earth. Not the least of which is “faster than sound vehicles” and “earth to orbit vehicles” and “atomic fuels”.
