The Bellari Shield
Image 1
A rough initial translation of the text provides the nominal (working) name of “Bellari Shield”. Despite the fact that a complete translation of the Kelan languages has not yet been accomplished, the purpose of this apparatus appears to have been to provide a means for protecting individual residences against cosmic rays and stellar radiation.

Based upon the descending pipe structures, the unit seems to have been powered via hydrothermal reactions. While the precise nature of these reactions are not known, we infer that the pipes carried heated water, as there seems to be no provision for direct magma injection. Between the houses, a central projector unit sets up a shield of concentric protective energy layers, large enough (presuming the accuracy of this diagram and standardization of the system) to cover two houses.

A beam projector is included, seen between the houses. This was possibly to serve as a defense against meteoroids. From this arrangement, we may infer that the Kelan star(s) were either more prone to eruptions than ours, or that the planet was significantly closer to the star than Earth is to our sun.

The graph, inset center left, corresponds to the energy levels consistent with the energy distribution levels of a cosmic ray flux of about 7x that of Earth. While the mathematical symbology of Kela has yet to be completely understood, it appears that the blue data points represent the annihilation of incoming particles at the tertiary level of the beam projector’s protective zone. The red data points appear (though the mechanism is not-yet known) to represent bounce-back scattering of particles which are not outrightly-destroyed by the projector beam.

Of particular interest is the diagramming of particle decays seen at upper right. This depiction provides several critical data points:

1. The Kelans were aware of, and demonstrated mastery of, particle decay mechanisms.
2. Their representation of these decays is very similar to modern Feynman diagrams
3. The spiral notations indicate the Kelans, like modern-day physicists, employed “cloud chambers” or similar methods to study particle decays.

The technical units beneath the houses have been classified as “RPU’s” (Residential Power Units), presumably providing power to each of the residences. In the absence of additional data or full translation of the multiple languages, it is unknown as to whether these RPU’s generated power independently, or were fueled by the geothermal infrastructure seen beneath the beam projector. See below.

The second image of the Bellari Shield shows a beam projector cutaway (lower left). Geothermal piping carries energy up from the deep subsurface; to a magma-reactance vessel (at center of the cutaway).Energy is then cross-modulated and sent to dual waveguides. Triangulation instrumentation attached to each beam projector handles aiming, and the energy beams, when fired, carry pulsed energy to destroy incoming space debris, as seen at upper right.

The flat plates, seen at the second layer down from the beam projectors, evidently carry the lower-level energy beams used to destroy incoming cosmic-ray particles, as seen in Figure 1.

At center-left of the diagram, the oval-shaped apparatus seems to represent the plan view of the magma-reactance chamber. Unfortunately, the diagram does not include sufficient information to allow us to identify the exact process by which this is accomplished. The lined areas in this diagram could be magnetic coils, or cooling buffers – we simply lack sufficient data from the sum of the Kelan Book to draw conclusions.

The graph above the reactance chamber diagram is seen elsewhere in Images with in the Kelan Book. Through a cross-referencing of “context”, this graph appears to show a series of magnetic resonances that converge at one particular node, and self-amplify at the target frequency. Research is underway at MTT to determine the precise frequency denoted here, and attempt to replicate this technology. If such an energy source could be tapped, the benefits to our own society would be immense.

Finally, at lower left, this graph appears to show the detection and modulus method used to initiate and sustain the lower-energy beam projection against the cosmic particle influx.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Image 3

This illustration shows a closer view of the Residential Power Unit. Beneath the residence, a basement area houses equipment, accessible via a staircase from the ground level. The illustration does not provide sufficient clarity for a rational determination of the nature of the equipment, so we can only offer conjecture as to its purpose and means of operation.

Referring to Image 1, it appears the Shield apparatus is powered by some form of geothermal or similar source. However, in Image 3, center right, we see a vessel with three similar but distinct internal segments, and (on the horizontal axis) representations that seem to denote three distinct energy states. There is no apparent shielding between the top of the equipment bay and the ground floor of the residence. Likewise, the access areas on the left and right of the central unit are not isolated by any type of shielding. It seems improbable that the Kelans would leave a nuclear device unprotected in this way. This therefore does not rule-out some form of fusion reactor: fission cannot possibly be the power source.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This theory is supported by the location of what appear to be intercoolers (8), and perhaps a modulating pump regulator.

The fact that there is a horizontal structure of some sort, axially-aligned with the center of the assembly, raises the possibility that there is a shaft supporting rotating components and the oval forms above and below the central assembly (5) would seem to indicate windings or coils of some type. Likewise, to the left of the central core, there are devices which might be thought to be support bearings for a shaft. In such context, the axially-aligned equipment to the left of the power vessel is probably comprised of simple mechanical electrical-generation equipment.

Note, however, the equipment to the right of the reactor vessel, and in particular the beam-emission at far right, headed toward the Bellari Shield itself. When we consider Image 1 in this context, we conclude that although the Bellari Shield is probably geothermally-powered, the interesting possibility emerges that the RPU’s are supplying additional power to the deflectors.

It is possible, then, that the geothermal input available from the planet core would not provide sufficient energy to power a beam weapon continuously, but by storing energy over an intermediate term, a capacitive (or similar) discharge might render such a weapon workable. Without information on the planet’s structure, it is impossible to estimate the time necessary to accumulate a sufficient charge, or the power levels necessary to deflect an incoming asteroid from planetary-impact trajectories.
