Yeah, the intermittency is strange. As for the way the scientific 
publishing establishment and the patent office have banned discussion 
thereof... one possibility that can't be ignored, I suppose, is that 
the DoD is developing the phenomenon and has told the major players 
to button their lips... while allowing small fishies to blather on, 
because universal silence *would* look like the kind of Giant 
Conspiracy John Clark ridicules. That's precisely what happened with 
the Manhattan Project and all the stories in ASTOUNDING about uranium 
weapons. The editor convinced the FBI to allow the stories to 
continue, lest they tip off the Nazis by their abrupt disappearance. 
The lesson might have been learned and generalized.

Just one possibility, of course.
