* Subquantum kinetics (SQK) views the physical world of matter, energy, and fields as an epiphenomenon generated by the continuous activity of an unseen ether that "underlies" our material world yet also extends beyond it along a higher dimensional continuum. The SQK paradigm is consistent with religious and mystical teachings as well as ancient esoteric lore.(20) It allows the possibility of unifying science and spiritual teachings. SQK can also help to explain exotic energy phenomena such as the longitudinal waves and scalar soliton phenomena discovered by Nikola Tesla.(21-22)
In regard to space propulsion, SQK is the first theory to predict a connection between electrostatic charge and gravity and thereby to provide a theoretical framework for understanding the electrogravitic effect first discovered by scientist T. Townsend Brown.(14,15, 24-30) General relativity fails to do this. Electrogravitics should allow the possibility for developing devices capable of controlling gravity. In addition, SQK is able to account for the same observational effects as Einstein's theory (e.g., gravitational bending of light, precession of Mercury's orbit), while avoiding its pitfalls (e.g., the naked singularity problem, cosmological constant conundrum, and the failure of black hole models).
In the area of energy generation, SQK predicts the existence of a new energy phenomenon called genic energy.(14-21) This phenomenon allowed Dr. LaViolette to discover and explain why the jovian planets are members of the stellar mass-luminosity relation and has led him to predict that brown dwarfs would also conform to this relation, a prediction that has been twice verified.(18) Genic energy also resolves many problems in astrophysics such as the solar neutrino problem, the discovery that blue-supergiants are progenitors to supernova explosions, etc. Since the genic energy phenomenon requires that the First Law of Thermodynamics is no longer absolutely valid, being violated regularly in nature throughout the universe, adoption of the SQK paradigm could lead to a reformation whereby current physics adopts a more liberal interpretation of the First Law.(30) This in turn could promote a more favorable interpretation of nonconventional energy sources which physicists often reject on the grounds that they violate the First Law.
SQK also holds promise in accounting for many other astrophysical phenomena such as stellar and galactic evolution, the tired-light effect, stellar pulsation, and galactic core explosions. Deep space images taken with the Hubble Space Telescope have confirmed a priori predictions that subquantum kinetics had made about galaxy evolution and the expected smaller size of galaxies existing billions of years ago.
