According to Kaluza theory, there are no such things as a separate EM field and a separate gravity field. Instead, in five dimensions there is only one field: the 5-d gravitational field. The EM field is the 5th dimensional aspect, while our normal 4-dimensional G-field is the other aspect of the 5-field, in our normal 4-space. Thus we may say that the 5-field is composed of two components: the 5th dimensional component (our normal EM field) and the component occupying our normal 4 dimensions (our normal G-field). The 5-d "force" field, of course -- or the 5-space analogy to a force field -- would be due to a gradient or "bleed-off" of the 5-d gravitational potential. This gradient in turn is composed of two components: the 5th dimensional "bleed-off" outside our normal 4-space (this outer bleed-off is our normal EM force field) and the bleed-off inside our normal 4-space (this inner bleed-off is our normal G-field). Normally the 5-potential bleeds-off outside our 4-space as EM field, far greater than it bleeds-off inside our world as G-field. Between two electrons, for example, the electric field is about 10 to the 42 times as strong as the G-field. Since in the Kaluza view there is only one 5-d G-potential that is causing both force fields, this shows that there is an incredibly greater EM bleed-off of the 5-potential between the two electrons than there is a G-field bleed-off between them. As shown on the diagram, the 5-d G-field is normally comprised almost entirely of the 5th dimensional EM field. Only a small 4-space G-field component exists. However, suppose we were to "block" the bleed-off of the
5-potential in the EM mode. Then none of the 5-potential could bleed-off in the
5th dimensional EM field. Instead, it would be forced to bleed-off into the
4-space G-field. In our two electron example, this "perfect case"
would result in the disappearance of the E-field between the two electrons, and
the The end result would be that, by blocking the EM force field bleed-off, EM
field is converted to G-field. In addition, EM field We can effectively accomplish this "blocking the EM bleed-off" by opposing EM force fields so that they sum to vector zero. This is the same as summing various 5th dimensional gradients of the 5-potential to a zero vector resultant. In that case, as much "EM bleed-back to 5-potential" occurs as there is "EM bleed-off from 5-potential." This places the 5-potential in equilibrium Also, another nice thing results: Since we can readily vary the magnitudes of the EM force field components of the vector zero summation, we can actually form phased "zero vector waves" by increasing and decreasing the magnitudes of all the component EM vectors in phase, but retaining their vector summation always equal to zero. In that case we have produced a very simple 5-space G-potential wave, which
concomitantly forces phase-locked variations in the 4-space G-potential. In
short, we have produced an The scalar EG wave changes EG potential energy into 4-gravity potential energy in one half-cycle, and changes 4-G potential energy into EG potential energy in the other half-cycle. However, the EG potential energy in the first half-cycle does not react electromagnetically in linear circumstances, since it is electromagnetically a linear vector zero. So our scalar EG wave actually oscillates energy back and forth between a |
