Being more aquatic, the L-Ms defined their technology based on a different premise--water--sound, vibration and impulse. Their tech is more like the "aether" theories of the last century, as it starts with "full" and builds towards "empty"; an excavation process.
We tend to intermix the concept of vibration and oscillation for simple, harmonic motion; using the terms interchangeably. They make a distinction: vibration is internal and oscillation is external. For example, picture a clock with a pendulum--the pendulum is a vibration (internal to the clock). Now, tie a rope to the clock and swing the clock--that is oscillation. The internal vibration of the pendulum is still going, along with the oscillation of the clock on the rope. Note that it is a very relative measure.
They use four types of interactions of vibration and oscillation: harmonic, sympathetic, discordant and impulse:
- Harmonic: interacts at an integer multiple of a frequency.
- Sympathetic: interacts at the same frequency.
- Discordant: Out-of-phase; what we would call "wave cancellation."
- Impulse: What we call a "soliton wave"; a single, strong compressive or expansive pulse.
"Fire" tech is expansive; we know from Larson's work that space is discrete with a minimum value of "1" (unity). Therefore, there is only one way to go--bigger--expansive outward from that discrete unit.
"Water" tech is compressive; time is seen as continuous--its discrete unit equivalent is "no phase change." Like space, there is only one way to go--bigger--but bigger in time is smaller in space (reciprocal relation), hence the compressive view.
The L-Ms do not appear to have much knowledge of atomic structure or "particles," in general. Since they deal with wave functions, the concept of atoms and particles is just as foreign as "motion" preceding "matter" in the Reciprocal System. Most of their tech is based on "force", but not in the conventional sense of mechanical force--it is closer to electric and magnetic fields, which Larson defines as forms of "rotational vibration."
Note that GRAVITY is NOT included in the "force field" concept, as it does not contain any vibrational component--it is strictly an inward, scalar motion. The references to "anti-gravity" propulsion and what-not are incorrect. They aren't using an anti-gravity system, per se, as much as a diamagnetic one. Diamagnetic elements, when exposed to a magnetic field, produce their own magnetic field but the poles are matched--the induced magnetic north is in the same direction as the external field "north," so that diamagnetic elements REPEL each other. Their propulsion systems create a strong, diamagnetic field that literally floats them on the Earth's magnetic field. Once outside the Earth's field, they can push against the other planets or the sun's magnetic field to continue movement.
Strong diamagnetism is not found in our periodic table, being found only in atoms with a large, spatial electric displacement. Paramagnetism (like iron) is found in atoms with a large, temporal electric displacement. Since atoms are temporal rotations, adding more time supports the structure, hence strong paramagnetism is common. However, adding a significant amount of spatial displacement to a temporal atom will tend to cancel out some of the temporal motion, thus disrupting or destroying the atom. So, strong diamagnetism is not found.
Cosmic atoms (antimatter), however, would work oppositely--being spatial rotations, a large, spatial displacement would generate very strong diamagnetism and paramagnetism would be very weak.
Cosmic atoms are only stable in the Material sector (what we experience) when they are coupled with a material atom, such as in living systems. This coupling, however, has a lifetime--it is not permanent. In order to manipulate strong, diamagnetic fields, the L-Ms use a system of "living" vibration, what we would call Qi, Ch'i or Prana. Bio-energy seems to be a significant part of their tech.
