There is no such thing as empty space. A mysterious fabric, not quite physical, lies within and around all things. Our scientists know this. It has been studied for over a century. It has been called zero point energy, quantum foam, dark matter, vacuum fluctuations, ether, vril, odic force, and probably dozens of other names. It is energetic and everywhere. Its effects have been measured on the scale of atoms and galaxies.
In ages past, before robots and spaceships, philosophers dreamed about this stuff. Using the power of reason, keen observation, and intuition, they sought to understand the subtle forces of nature. They did not have access to advanced technology. Nevertheless, a few developed systems and techniques that are relevant today.
BendingSpace is dedicated to the idea that one can grasp the fabric of space, on a human scale, and cause it to do useful work. Great men of science such as Michael Faraday, James Clerk Maxwell, and Nikola Tesla explored this territory. Their discoveries, revolutionary at the time, have become the backbone of modern civilization.
BendingSpace also refers to a tangible, physical process. The philosophers learned how to bend space, much like a crystal bends light. It can be done using common supplies that are readily available. If that sounds crazy, perhaps it is. You can try it, and decide for yourself.
In these pages you will learn how to build self-powered devices that actually bend and refract the subtle forces of nature, raising them to the edge of perception. You will explore certain avenues of science and metaphysics, to understand how these devices operate. After that, its up to you. Laugh it off, file it away as a curiosity, or use this knowledge to build something remarkable.
