Jack Sarfatti has a physics Ph.D. from the University of California. He taught physics at San Diego State University. He worked with David Bohm at Birkbeck College (University of London) and with Abdus Salam at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy. He has been working on the post-quantum physics of consciousness and the paranormal since he directed the famous Esalen Seminars in 1976 described by Gary Zukav in “The Dancing Wu Li Masters”.

Jack’s concept for propulsion holds that the negative refractive index of certain metamaterials can create a negative energy density, which combined with Bose–Einstein condensate ( can reduce the speed of light within the metamaterial to create anti-gravity effects. He believes that metamaterials are a key to space-time metric engineering within the constraints of General Relativity theory and facilitate the creation of a low-power warp drive.

Jack was the basis of the memorable time-travelling Dr. Emmett Brown in the Back to the Future trilogy. He is also working on the connection of the warp drive physics of flying saucers to the new cosmology observations of anti-gravity “dark energy”. He lectures on that in Star Trek IV DVD Special Collector’s Edition (“Time Travel: The Art of the Possible”.)

Jack is the author of Super Cosmos (2005), Destiny Matrix (2002), and Space: Time And Beyond II (Dark Energy) (2002), and coauthor with Fred Alan Wolf and Bob Toben of Space-Time and Beyond: Toward an Explanation of the Unexplainable (1982).

Other publications by Jack include Zero Point Energy Gravity Physics: Of UFOs, Star Gates, Time Travel and Parallel Brane Worlds, Macro-Quantum Vacuum, Exotic Weapons of Mass Destruction & Martin Rees’ “Our Final Hour”, Gravity as local translational symmetry plus spontaneous broken internal symmetry, Wheeler’s World: It From Bit?, Zero Point Energy, The True Story, Emergent Gravity: String Theory Without String Theory and Design for a Superluminal Signaling Device.
