: : Electrons don't go around in circles.

I know electrons don't go around in circles, please don't lecture me on the mechanics of an atom. I was mearely making the picture a little easier, under no way was this affecting the outcome of what I was saying

: Electrons occupy energy levels as dictated by quantum mechanics. If electrons whizzed around in circles they would radiate energy and spiral into the nucleus.

: : : : ZPE is the result of the HUP and cannot be infinite or the energy mass tensor would be infinite and spacetime would have ceased to exist eons ago.

Who says?

: : : : If you had a power plant that produced energy from ZPE, the waste product, by definition, would have to be totally empty space. As already discussed, totally empty space is forbidden by the HUP.

space a waste product?? No, I don't think so

: : : : Atoms that gain energy for no apparent reason? Unless you are somehow referring to vacuum fluctuations, which by the way don't involve atoms, then you'll have to give me an example to chew on.

no, that's not what I was trying to say, but I'll tink about it and see if I can find the experiment for you.
