Hi Larry,

I think you'd benefit by reading over some of Harold Putoff's
contributions to physics relating to the energy of the vacuum
and the Casimir effct. Though most of these below were written
for the physicist or scientist, they're written more clearly and
understandably than most such material. They are:

"Ground state of hydrogen as a zero-point fluctuation-determined
state," in _Phys. Rev. D_, 35 (15 May 1987), pp. 3266-3269

"Gravity as a zero-point-fluctuation force," in _Phys. Rev. A_,
39 (1 March 1989)m, pp. 2333-2342

"Sources of vacuum electromagnetic zero-point energy," in _Phys.
Rev. A_, 40 (1 November 1989), pp. 4857-4862

"Reply to comment on 'Source of vacuum electromagnetic
zero-point energy'," in _Phys. Rev. A_, 44 (1 September 1991),
pp. 3385-3386

"Inertia: Does empty space put up the resistance?" in _Science_
263 (4 February 1994), pp. 612-613 [article by science writer
about the findings of Puthoff et al.]

"Beyond E=mcc" by Haisch, Rueda & Puthoff, in _The Sciences_
(Nov.-Dec., 1994), pp. 26-31

"SETI, the velocity-of-light limitation, and the Alcubierre warp
drive: An intriguing overview," in _physics Essays_, 9, No. 1,
1996, pp. 156-158.
