Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to a change in its state of motion. It is represented numerically by an object's mass. The principle of inertia is one of the fundamental principles of classical physics which are used to describe the motion of matter and how it is affected by applied forces. Inertia comes from the Latin word, "iners", meaning idle, or lazy. Sir Isaac Newton defined inertia in Definition 3 of his Philosophia Naturalis Principia Mathematica, which states:

"The vis insita, or innate force of matter is a power of resisting, by which every body, as much as in it lies, endeavors to preserve in its present state, whether it be of rest, or of moving uniformly forward in a straight line."

In common usage, however, people may also use the term "inertia" to refer to an object's "amount of resistance to change in velocity" (which is quantified by its mass), or sometimes to its momentum, depending on the context (e.g. "this object has a lot of inertia"). The term "inertia" is more properly understood as shorthand for "the principle of inertia" as described by Newton in his First Law of Motion. This law, expressed simply, says that an object that is not subject to any net external force moves at a constant velocity. In even simpler terms, inertia means that an object will always continue moving at its current speed and in its current direction until some force causes its speed or direction to change. This would include an object that is not in motion (velocity = zero), which will remain at rest until some force causes it to move. [wikipedia]

"A simple experimental test for the inertial field of a rotating mechanical object."
The experiments are also described in the appendix of Dione, R. L. "Is God supernatural: The 4,000 year misunderstanding: an exegenesis." [New York: Bantam Books, Inc., May 1976. 162 p.

"In relation to Charles Fort's "The book of the damned"."
Possible natural case of scalar interferometry whereby greater mass accumulates a kindled vertical force field. Incident involved a "dust devil" lifting objects; heavier objects did not come down. Note that scalar current in a helix produces inertial field, not magnetic field. Hence antigravity effects are possible under appropriate circumstances. [The INFO Journal. 2(2), Spring, 1970. p. 22-23.]

Scalar currents (time rate of change of electrostatic or magnetostatic scalar potential) without mass seem to induce inertial fields (gravitational fields) when they move helically. Ordinary mass seems to act as an accumulator for slow storage and slow discharge of such circulating scalar currents, as well as for currents of scalar resonance. [Nature. 243(5409), June 29, 1973. p. 512-513.]

Inertial Line
"The inertial line, or plane, is that dividing line, or plane, toward which all masses discharge their potential.

"It is the line, or plane, of lowest potential of two opposing areas of potential, where opposing pressures neutralize. This is the plane of minimum pressure of two opposing areas." Russell, The Universal One

All of the energy of the universal constant is existent in inertia, and all of its variations in accumulation are stored in the sequential inertial planes of equilibrium which have their chemical representation in the inert gases, from which they borrow their appearance of existence of mass in motion. [Russell, The Universal One]
