The Torus and Magnetic Fusion in the Ancient Rig Veda

An October 2014 report from Technology Review describes Lockheed Martin’s announcement that it had “secretly developed a promising design for a compact nuclear fusion reactor” has encountered skepticism over the basic feasibility of its approach.

Tom McGuire is the project lead of the Lockheed effort to develop the reactor at the company’s ‘Skunkworks’ in Palmdale, California. No data has yet been released after having done 200 firings with plasma. However, McGuire said of the plasma,  “It looks like it’s doing what it’s supposed to do.” He added that with research partners, Lockheed could develop a completed prototype within five years and a commercial application within a decade. The company is even talking about how fusion reactors could one day power ships and planes.

McGuire said:

“…the company has come up with a compact design, called a high beta fusion reactor, based on principles of so-called ‘magnetic mirror confinement.’ This approach tries to contain plasma by reflecting particles from high-density magnetic fields to low-density ones.

The challenge is to confine hydrogen plasma at conditions under which the hydrogen nuclei fuse together at levels that release a useful amount of energy.” [Source]


Tokamak: a doughnut (Torus) shaped device

The article continues, “Most research efforts use a method that tries to contain hot plasma within magnetic fields in a doughnut-shaped device called a tokamak. Three research-scale tokamaks operate in the United States: one at MIT, another at a lab in Princeton, and a third at a Department of Energy lab in San Diego. The world’s largest tokamak is under construction in France at an international facility known as ITER, at a projected cost of $50 billion.” The projected cost of only one of these research efforts is $50 billion, I would suppose there is more than skepticism involved.

Magnetic Confinement Fusion

WIKI: Magnetic confinement fusion is an approach to generating fusion power that uses magnetic fields (which is a magnetic influence of electric currents and magnetic materials) to confine the hot fusion fuel in the form of a plasma. Magnetic confinement is one of two major branches of fusion energy research, the other being inertial confinement fusion. The magnetic approach is more highly developed and is usually considered more promising for energy production.

…Magnetic confinement fusion attempts to create the conditions needed for fusion energy production by using the electrical conductivity of the plasma to contain it with magnetic fields. The basic concept can be thought of in a fluid picture as a balance between magnetic pressure and plasma pressure, or in terms of individual particles spiraling along magnetic field lines.

The Tokamak is a doughnut shaped device, which is essentially a Torus

      Hi Mitch Blanco. I’m not sure why that is happening. Everytime I click on our links I always get straight to the article. Even this link worked for me. Next time if a link does not work, try waiting a few seconds and then trying again. It could just be a brief glitch.

    The Rig Veda is a fantastic read, if you read between the lines

    The Vortex based mathematics perpetuated by Randy Puwell student of Marko Rodin from the idea of Tesla from his magnificent 369. The divine pattern of the universe, nature has always been providing a better solution for human needs of energy by not burning fossil fuel. From past years we know that energy we harness from the sun, air and water are insufficient to supply but by Vortex it is possible. And Im hoping that this technology will not be fall to wrong hands.
