Changing the “Fabric of Reality”

Dr. Salvatore Pais, U.S. Navy Engineer, holds several patents for technologies that completely change the way we view the world and how objects interact with each other, challenging the fabric of space-time and reality as we know it. Granted many of his patents show some very futuristic and outlandish technologies, but Da Vinci invented the airplane, elevator and helicopter decades before they were able to be produced. This week I will give a brief overview of three of Pais’s most intriguing patents.

The first is Pais’s 2018 patent for an aerospace-underwater craft. His design is a cone-shaped vehicle capable of flight through both air and liquid at extreme speeds without leaving any traceable heat signatures. The vehicle achieves this through the use of quantum field manipulation. Manipulating the quantum field in its local vacuum energy state reduces the inertia of the craft, making it able to rapidly change speed and direction, while the resulting polarized field generated around the craft reduces the resistance of water and air flowing past the craft. If the ability to manipulate the quantum field, creating a vacuum, proves to be possible, we can use the technology to “engineer the fabric of our reality at the most fundamental level,” states the patent. 

The second invention is similar in design to the first, but instead of being used to propel and protect a craft, he devised an electromagnetic field generator that creates Star Trek-like “force fields” to protect land and space-based assets from threats like asteroids and missiles that evade radar. The impenetrable and invisible shield is created by utilizing a phenomenon Pais calls “The Pais Effect.” The effect in the simplest form is the method of spinning electromagnetic fields in order to contain a fusion reaction, leading to a tremendous change in power consumption and an abundance of energy.  

His third invention is a Laser Augmented Turbojet Propulsion System, which includes the fairly standard compressor, turbine and exhaust sections of a turbojet engine. Where his design deviates from the normal is the addition of a laser control mechanism designed to introduce electromagnetic radiation into the combustion chamber. The electromagnetic field heats the fuel in the combustion chamber much like a microwave heats your coffee. This increases the pressure in the chamber and improves thrust of the engine. Another effect of the laser is to produce pressure waves in the air mixture, increasing thrust.
