Directory:Water > Directory:Desalination > A fresh way to take the salt out of water - Saltworks uses solar energy or waste heat to concentrate sea water. They then use the ionic gradient between the concentrated brine and two sea-water streams to pull ions from from a 3rd sea-water stream, apparently trading the reduced entropy of the desalinated water against the increased entropy of 'mixing' the brine and the other sea-water streams.

Directory:Grand Unified Theories > Directory:Anti-Gravity > Directory:Dan Winter > New Science and Art of Gravity with Dan Winter - "When charge or plasma becomes centripetal... that is called life -- and that is precisely what golden ratio fractality accomplishes!" Site also addresses such exotic subjects as phase conjugate magnetics, how fractality causes gravity, sacred geometry as a therapeutic tool, ormus - high spin state superconducting matter, holographic research.

Directory:Zero Point Energy > Zero point fields interpreted as interference between different worlds in a many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics - In some aspects zero point fields yield very real physical manifestations, e.g. in the Casimir effect and as a source of noise in semi classical laser theory. On the other hand they seem to give no contribution to gravitation corresponding to their estimated energy summed over all modes within wave lengths above the Plank length...
