If the Casimir force is a non conservative forces, how can this affect the polarized vacuum theory in the universe's evolution?

  • $\begingroup$ The 'Casimir force' you speak of is nothing but pressure on the walls of two plates sealed in a perfect vacuum. It is difficult to discuss whether the force is conservative or not because there is no well-defined potential associated. The force is simply a tidal force caused by disparities in the number of collisions due to the quantum properties of the vacuum. $\endgroup$ – Physics Jun 10 at 12:31
