I first heard the term “scalar wave” in 1996 or 97, when I was working as a scientific adviser in a government office in London (in the same building as Nick Pope, as I mentioned in a previous post). Part of my job description was “technology watch” -- which entailed sifting though endless reports of alleged scientific breakthroughs deciding which of them might have genuine military significance and which were crackpot fantasies. I filed scalar waves in the latter category.
According to its enthusiasts, a scalar wave is a longitudinal electrodynamic wave that travels freely through space... something the textbooks unequivocally state to be impossible. Even in the 1990s, however, there was a thriving subculture that associated scalar waves with all manner of advanced technology, mind control and conspiracy theories. Since then, scalar waves have broken into the world of New Age mysticism and alternative therapy, and if you’re so inclined you can purchase scalar wave pendants and scalar wave bracelets that may or may not boost your spiritual well-being.
