In short, that is the source of not only the Poynting energy flow component intercepted by the physical power system, but also is the source of all that non-intercepted and ignored Heaviside "dark energy" flow component that Lorentz erroneously discarded. One must keep a sense of humor. Instead of performing entropic engineering as we do, where we "wrestle" nature vigorously to the mat with brute force, all we have to do is use negentropy . Just "open a little porthole" of broken symmetry — the source dipole, which we will have to entropically pay for — and nature happily leaps forth and starts reorganizing the entire vacuum energy of the universe! She is happy to be permitted to do it, and she gladly pays us with copious free energy sent out of the "porthole" dipolarity for us to catch and use as we will. 3
To perform entropy, we must do positive ( entropic ) work, which means we pay for all the energy which is dissipated to continually brute-force wrestle some part of nature to the mat as we wish. Nature protests this brutal treatment by attempting all the while to restore symmetry, furnishing the Newtonian third law reaction to oppose our rudeness. To perform negentropy, we must "do" negative work — which means we must accept and receive ordered energy for free! All we have to do is initially pay to make the little porthole . Nature so loves negentropic reorganization of the entire vacuum energy, that she will handsomely and gloriously reward us with an extreme energy flow for opening the tiniest broken symmetry "porthole" which allows her to do so. She will gladly continue to pour out energy through that porthole, as long as it exists. If we fight nature, we must pay brutally for it. If we "tickle" nature just a bit, nature pays us back enormously, many times over, continuously, and with great gratitude by "changing into bright new clothes" of dazzling form and astounding energy. The So-Called "Scalar" Potential Is Not a Scalar Entity The "scalar" potential is not now and never has been a "scalar" entity. Instead, it is a multiwave, bidirectional longitudinal EM wave flow and EM energy flow entity, as shown by Whittaker. In its interaction with a unit point static charge, the net reaction cross section of the fixed potential has a scalar magnitude — but that simply represents the energy diverged from the potential and forced to swirl around the static charge. The energy continuously trapped in the slight diversion of the potential's "rivers of energy" around the intercepting unit point charge is not the potential itself, else a whirlpool in a river might be taken to be the river. There is no problem at all in making enormous rivers of energy. Just make a dipolarity — a tiny potential. Its myriad of rushing rivers of energy will flow indefinitely, powered freely by the negentropically reorganizing universe, so long as you do not destroy the little dipolarity "porthole".
