B5. How the "omnibus trend" should culminate in three conventions of the Magnocraft's operation

In plain English the word "convention" means "unambiguously defined behaviour". In this monograph the same term will be used to describe the strictly defined behaviour of an advanced flying vehicle. Thus, by the "convention of operation of a vehicle" will be understood a name assigned to the basic principle employed in a particular spacecraft to cause its own motion. This name is usually derived from the most advanced energy carrier that is utilized in the working medium of this vehicle (see the third column in Table B1). In the case of the Magnocraft, depending on which generation this vehicle belongs, three conventions of its operation can be distinguished, i.e. magnetic, telekinetic, and time travel.
To explain more precisely the interpretation of "convention of a vehicle's operation", a hypothetical flying aircraft called an "omnibus" will be discussed. The omnibus has the shape of an open-ended barrel or tube. It incorporates in one vehicle the capabilities of as many as three different generations of propulsors operating on the principle of circulation of matter, i.e. a glider, a hovercraft and a jet propulsor. When the omnibus flies at high altitudes and extinguishes its fuel combustion, it glides through the air, thus functioning as the first generation of propulsors belonging to the matter circulating propulsion systems. In Table B1 these propulsors are represented by a sail (see also explanations from subsection B3). When the omnibus directs the stream of its exhaust gases downward, it operates like a hovercraft, flying horizontally just above the ground. During such an operation it represents the second generation of the matter circulating propulsors. The omnibus may also operate as a jet propulsor, thrusting its way up into the air. In such an operation it represents the third generation of the propulsors based on the circulation of matter.
The above explanations show that in order to describe how an omnibus operates in a particular instant of time, the use of the term "convention" is necessary. Thus, we may state that the omnibus operates either in a glider convention, in a hovercraft convention, or in a jet convention. In each one of these, the single omnibus behaves the same as aircraft belonging to an entirely different generation of matter circulating propulsion systems. By naming the convention in which it operates we are able to clarify all possible ambiguity concerning its behaviour and properties.
The experience accumulated so far indicates that all three successive generations of the matter circulating propulsors complement one another. Thus, the contemporary propulsors of the third generation, such as jet or rocket, not only are unable to replace or substitute the propulsors of the first or second generation, such as a glider or hovercraft, but also they introduce a growing need for simultaneous application of these simple propulsors. An example of such a need can be the space shuttle "Columbia" which had to operate as a rocket, as a glider, or as an inertial satellite. On the other hand, our increasing knowledge of the propulsion systems provides technological capabilities for building omnibuses. Therefore it gradually becomes evident that as our development progresses, our ability to build omnibuses increases. An example of this "omnibus trend" can be contemporary military aircraft, which already are required to display the capabilities of jet aeroplanes, as well as the ability to take-off vertically (i.e. for operation as a hovercraft), and also the ability for gliding.
The above observation can be expressed in the form of a general rule which states that: "In highly developed civilizations the 'omnibus trend' becomes so dominant that the development of higher generations of flying vehicles are achieved through adding further
conventions to the existing vehicles of lower generations utilizing the same working medium." As is shown in the Periodic Principle, there exists a striking symmetry in the development of propelling devices that utilize three general types of working media. Therefore the regularities observed during the development of matter circulating aircraft must also be in operation for the flying vehicles based on the circulation of magnetic fields. To put this another way, the omnibus trend described above impacts to the same extent on the development of contemporary aircraft as the development of future Magnocraft. The omnibus trend will have a direct impact on our civilization when the second and third generations of magnetic spacecraft eventuate. These two advanced vehicles will not be built as entirely new and different spacecraft, but rather as improved versions of the ordinary Magnocraft. Their shape, internal design and one of the conventions of their operation (i.e. magnetic convention) will be identical to those of the Magnocraft. The only difference these advanced vehicles will display in comparison to the Magnocraft, is that independently of the magnetic convention they will also be capable of using, when required, the telekinetic (vehicles of the second generation), and telekinetic or time travel (vehicles of the third generation) conventions. To emphasize that both these advanced magnetic vehicles evolved from the ordinary Magnocraft, they will also be called here the Magnocraft of the second generation (i.e. able to operate in the magnetic or telekinetic conventions) and the Magnocraft of the third generation (i.e. able to operate in the magnetic, telekinetic, or time travel conventions). In contrast to this, the ordinary Magnocraft, which can only operate in the magnetic convention, will be called here the Magnocraft of the first generation, or simply the "Magnocraft". It should be stressed that each of these vehicles can operate only in one convention at a time. For example, when the Magnocraft of the second generation flies in the magnetic convention its telekinetic capabilities must be switched off, but when it turns on its telekinetic operation it must simultaneously extinguish its forces of magnetic attraction and repulsion.
