A review of the Paper: The Equivalence of Magnetic and Kinetic Energy by Carel van der Togt.

"This article proves that QM/QED/QCD/. ... assumed, unjustified, that the electromagnetic field is (also) conservative."

Subject: coldfusion/omissions in physics

Dear Sterling D. Allan[1],

I read your website concerning cold fusion. I'm concerned because mainstream physics is without any doubt hiding serious mistakes made in the past. Omissions so enormous science will not be able to correct without being ridiculed.

Maybe you are interested. In December 2006 the scientific journal "Galilean Electrodynamics" published the article "The Equivalence of Kinetic and Magnetic Energy." ( This article proves that QM/QED/QCD/. ... assumed unjustified that the electromagnetic field is (also) conservative.

The electrostatic field is conservative. In early days QM scientists (Feynman ea.) concluded unjustly that the electromagnetic field is also conservative. However this is not the case, which is proven without doubt in this article (section 4 The Electromagnetic Mass). The scientific consequence of this article is that all theoretical conclusions of QM/QED/QCD/. . are fictional.

You can understand it is impossible to publish an article or a comment in mainstream science journals concerning an omission that proves all QM/QED/... formulas are physically false. The Nobel-prize Frank Wilczek e.a. received in 2004 is also based on this false assumption. Possible you realize physics will do anything to hide this mistake. Can you imagine they admit there are no parallel worlds, no ..

Possible it is interesting for you to have a look.

An electric charge placed in vacuum produces an electrostatic field that surrounds the charge. When an observer moves relative to the charge, the electrostatic field observed changes in time, and in addition, the observer will measure a magnetic field. The presence of the magnetic field indicates magnetic energy. For an observer moving relative to a mass, the relative speed of the mass represents kinetic energy. Like magnetic energy, kinetic energy exists only if there is relative movement – in this case, relative motion between observer and mass. Kinetic and magnetic energy are thus quite comparable: both forms of energy exist only when there is motion relative to an observer.

The questions that I want to answer are these:

1) How much energy does the magnetic field of a moving charge represent?

2) What is the relation between the magnetic and kinetic energy of a charged mass?

In addressing these questions, only non-relativistic velocities need be considered, because relativistic conditions unnecessarily complicate the situation without adding any additional insight.

The paper by van der Togt is excellent! It took awhile to wade through it, but it is on the mark, as far as I can tell. I am doubly pleased by this paper because it reinforces the physics of Steven Smith on his website,, where kinetic energy is explained as a magnetic energy phenomenon. Smith and van der Togt are talking about the same thing, presenting the math a little differently. Smith is doing it for public readership with high school physics knowledge, and van der Togt is talking at the university physics graduate level.
