Tom Bearden.(cheniere.org).nuclear engineer points out Whittaker's equations (1904) giving a mathematical model that is apparently very real in its implications. Two scalar energy components can be beamed to a remote interaction zone, then real, measurable, transversely-polarized EM (electromagnetic), conventional, register-on-our-instruments type energy arises in the interaction zone. Or, two conventional EM beams can be made to interact exactly out of phase and time-reversed, so that they exactly cancel each other out, yet *something* is there in the time/place where the beams are interacting, maybe think of it as a stress in space-time, that can produce a voltage. That something is 'scalar'.
