An Invisible Galaxy of Inventions
by Christopher Bird
In its July 17, 1995, Australia edition, Time magazine rounded up a list of future technologies that would change the world as we know it. In doing so, they made the following prediction: “The first company to design an affordable car that doesn’t foul the atmosphere will race past its competitors.”
My own story began late one night as I was driving home listening to talk radio. Somebody piped up that they’d been working on a solar-powered car out at the local airport. They said that it was as cheap and safe as an average family car, and that it was all ready to go. All you needed was about $5 worth of fuel per year to get it started.
The startled DJ asked when we were likely to see this car in the marketplace, and the caller coolly replied, “Probably never. I’d say that the oil companies will buy us out in a flash.”
I nearly crashed my car! What on earth was going on here?
The next day, I rang the airport to find out who was doing the testing, only to find out from an assertive voice, “There are no automobiles being tested here, and there never have been.”
This dead end provided the spark of determination to send me on my investigative way.
A Water-Powered Lawnmower Bites the Dust
My next encounter with the suppression phenomenon happened about a year later. It involved a female friend of mine who said that a man she knew had invented a lawnmower that ran on water.
Skeptical but excited, I said I wanted to meet this man.
My friend got back to me a few days later, very upset. It turns out that the water-powered lawnmower’s inventor had recently opened his front door to a shotgun blast in the face.
For the six months prior to his death, this inventor had been solidly drinking, ever since he’d come home to his family one day with a million or so dollars and the announcement that he didn’t want to discuss his engines again.
The Demise of a Little Black Box
More information came in the form of an article in the Melbourne Age (July 13, 1993, p. 5) introducing an “ozone safe induction” system – a little black box that was added to your engine and would cut fuel usage by up to two-thirds, with a corresponding reduction in pollution.
Oz Smart Technologies was the name of the firm, and Mike Holland was the inventor. I talked to Mike about his supposed breakthrough. “Yeah,” he told me, “the U.S. military just flew in some generals and stuff, and they want to buy it. And Nissan just offered me five million dollars. But I want to develop it in Australia.”
Did it work? Apparently so. The Environmental Protection Agency, along with scientists from Swinburne University who’d done the testing, told Mike off the record that it was the best design of its kind that they’d ever seen.
But the media continued to consider the device a bit of a hoax. And Mike Holland’s company simply does not exist anymore. Yep. They just disappeared.
My research today tells me that Mike Holland’s invention was probably of the improved-fuel-efficiency variety, simply burning fuel in a more efficient manner – nothing terribly difficult.
Other well-known developments are of the “car running on water” kind, usually involving electrical current running through the water to extract and then burn the hydrogen.
Some of the more interesting of these involve the use of magnets, sometimes tuned to exact frequencies that take energy from the ambient atmosphere.
More Energy Inventions That
They Don’t Want Us to Know About
Since meeting Mike Holland, I have managed to collect quite a list of energy inventions that have somehow avoided being utilized in the marketplace.
You may not believe that all of them work – but it would be very difficult to claim that none of them do.
Here is the evidence. You decide for yourself.
In 1978, Yull Brown of Sydney, Australia, developed a method of extracting hydrogen from water and utilizing it as car fuel and as fuel for welders.
After much publicity (see Australia’s The Bulletin, August 22, 1989), he had managed to raise over $2 million, but has failed to fully develop his invention.
Francisco Pacheco, an inventor from Bolivia, created the “Pacheco Bi-Polar Autoelectric Hydrogen Generator” (U.S. Patent No. 5,089,107), which separates hydrogen from seawater. He has built successful prototypes that have fueled a car, a motorcycle, a lawnmower, a flashlight, and a boat. And most recently, in 1990, he energized an entire home in West Milford with the device.
After many conferences (including at the United Nations) and public exhibitions proving the invention’s worth, the wider community is still unable to utilize this technology.

another set of suppression cases:
Edward Estevel of Spain developed a classic “water to auto engine” system in the late 1960s, extracting hydrogen out of water to use as fuel.
This system was highly heralded – then, amid rumors of foul play, like many other “high hope” hydrogen systems.
During the mid-1970s, Sam Leach of Los Angeles developed a revolutionary hydrogen extraction process. The unit easily extracted free hydrogen from water and was small enough to fit under the hood of an automobile.
In 1976, two independent labs in LA tested this generator with perfect results.
M.J. Mirkin, who began the Budget car rental system, purchased the rights to the device from the inventor, who was said to be very concerned about his personal security.
Rodger Billings of Provo, Utah, headed a group of inventors that developed a system converting ordinary cars to run on hydrogen. Instead of using heavy hydrogen tanks, he used metal alloys called hydrides to store vast amounts of hydrogen. When hot exhaust gases passed through these hydride containers they released the gas to burn in standard engines.
Billings estimated the conversion would cost around $500 (US) and would provide greatly improved fuel consumption.
Archie Blue, an inventor from Christchurch, New Zealand, developed a car that runs purely on water by the extraction of hydrogen. An alleged offer of $500 million from “Arab interests” was not enough to convince him to sell, but nevertheless he has been unable to take his engine to the marketplace.
In 1970, Oliver Yunick developed a super-efficient steam engine (see Popular Science magazine, December 1970). It was able to compete admirably with combustion engines.
In 1971, DuPont Laboratories built an advanced steam engine utilizing a recyclable fluid of the Freon family. It is assumed to contain no need for an external condenser, valves, or tubes (Popular Science January 1972).
Also in 1971, William Bolon of Rialto, California, developed an unusual steam engine design that was said to get up to 50 miles to the gallon. The engine used only 17 moving parts, weighed less than 50 pounds, and in automatics eliminated the usual transmission and drive-train.
After much publicity, the inventor’s factory was fire-bombed, with damages totaling $600,000. Letters to the White House were ignored. The inventor finally gave up and let Indonesian interests have the design.
In 1931, Roy J. Meyers of Los Angeles built an air-powered car (air has been used for years to power localized underground mine engines). Myers, an engineer, built a 114-lb., 6-cylinder radial air engine that produced over 180 hp. Newspaper articles at the time reported that the vehicle could cruise several hundred miles at low speeds.
In the 1970s, Vittorio Sorgato of Milan, Italy, also created a very impressive air-powered vehicle, using compressed air stored as a liquid. After a great deal of initial interest from Italian sources, his invention is now all but forgotten.
Robert Alexander of Montebello, California, spent 45 days and around $500 to put together a car (U.S. Patent No. 3913004), using a small 7/8ths 12-volt motor to provide initial power. Once going, a hydraulic-and-air system took over and recharged the small electric energy drain.
The inventor and his partner were determined that the auto industry would not bury their “super power” system. To no avail.
Joseph P Troyan designed an air-powered flywheel that could propel an automobile using the principle of “ratio amplification of motion in a closed system.” The Troyan motor (U.S. Patent No. 040011) was easily attached to electrical generators to create a pollution-free, variable-power system.
David McClintock created a free energy device known as the McClintock Air Motor (U.S. Patent No. 2,982,26100) which is a cross between a diesel engine with three cylinders and a compression ratio of 27-to-1, and a rotary engine with solar and plenary gears. It burns no fuel, but becomes self-running by driving its own air compressor.
In the 1920s, John W. Keeley developed a car using principles similar to Nikola Tesla’s, drawing harmonic magnetic energies from the planet itself. The electric car ran from high-frequency electricity that was received when he simply broadcast the re-radiated atmospheric energy from a unit on his house roof.
General Motors and the other Detroit oil powers offered the inventor $35 million, which he turned down when they would not guarantee to market the engine. Henry Ford later bought and successfully shelved the invention.
Harold Adams of Lake Isabella, California, worked out a motor thought to be similar to Keeley’s. It was demonstrated to many persons, including Naval scientists, around the late 1940s, before it, too, “disappeared” from history.
In the early 1970s, Dr. Keith E. Kenyon of Van Nuys, California, discovered a discrepancy in long-accepted laws relating to electrical motor magnets. Based upon this discovery, he built a radically different motor that could theoretically run a car on a very small amount of current.
When this was demonstrated to scientists and engineers in 1976, those present admitted that it worked remarkably well. But because it defied the “accepted” laws of physics, they chose to ignore it.
Bob Teal of Madison, Florida, a retired electronics engineer, invented what he called a Magna-Pulsion Engine. It ran by means of six tiny electromagnets and a secret timing device. Requiring no fuel, the engine emitted no gases. It was so simple in design that it required very little maintenance. A small motorcycle battery provided enough power to get it started. The engine was met with little but skepticism.
In the late 1920s, Lester J. Hendershot built his Hendershot Generator, largely through simple trial and error. He wove together a number of flat coils of wire, and placed stainless steel rings and sticks of carbon, and experimented with permanent magnets in various positions. To his surprise, the device actually produced current. The generator raised considerable attention at the time.
Howard Johnson developed a motor whose power was generated purely by magnetism. It took six years of legal hassles to patent his design (U.S. Patent No. 4,151,431). More information is available from the Permanent Magnet Research Institute, P.O. Box 199, Blacksburg, Virginia 24063. He is currently offering licensing rights.
In the early 1970s Edwin V. Gray developed an engine that uses no fuel and produces no waste. This engine that runs itself is U.S. Patent 3,890,548.
In the mid-1970s, Guido Franch of Michigan began demonstrating in his “water-to-gas miracle” – a fuel he created by adding to water a small quantity of “conversion powder” which was easily processed from coal. He claimed it could be processed for a few cents per gallon if mass-produced.
The fuel was tested by chemists at Havoline Chemical of Michigan and at the local university, and both concluded that the new substance worked more efficiently than gasoline. Franch continued to put on demonstrations for years, but said the auto manufacturers, government, and private companies just weren’t interested in his revolutionary fuel.
Around the mid-1970s, Dr. Alfred R. Globus, working for United International Research, developed a hydro-fuel mixture of 45 percent gasoline, 50 percent or more of water, and small percentages of United’s “Hydrelate,” which acted as a bonding agent. It was estimated that a hundred million gallons of fuel could be saved per day if this fuel were utilized. But, alas, nobody seemed interested.
In 1974, John Andrews, a Portuguese chemist, developed a fuel additive that enabled ordinary gasoline to be mixed with water, reducing fuel costs to 2 cents per gallon. After he had successfully demonstrated the substance, impressed Navy officials went to negotiate for the formula and found the inventor missing and his lab ransacked.
Jean Chambrin, a mechanical engineer in Paris, developed a water-and-alcohol motor, which he used to run his own private cars on denatured alcohol and water. The inventor claimed that his motor’s design could be mass-produced at a fraction of the cost of present engines. He received nothing but publicity – of the type that forced him to take great precautions in regard to his personal safety.
In 1977, Marvin D. Martin of the University of Arizona developed a “fuel reformer” catalytic reactor that was estimated to double mileage. The device was designed to cut exhaust emissions by mixing water with hydrocarbon fuels to produce an efficient hydrogen-methane-carbon monoxide fuel.
Improving Fuel Efficiency
In the early 1970s, Edward La Force of Vermont and his brother, Robert, designed a highly efficient engine that utilized the usually wasted heavier gasoline molecules. The Los Angeles Examiner on December 29, 1974, reported that efficiency was produced by altering the cams, timing, and so on, of stock Detroit engines. These modifications not only eliminated most of the pollution from the motor, but – by completely burning all the fuel – produced double the usual mileage.
After much publicity, the Environmental Protection Agency examined the cars and found that the motor designs were not good enough. Few people believed the EPA, including a number of senators, who brought the matter up in a Congressional hearing in March 1975. The result was still silence.
Eric Cottell was one of the pioneers of ultrasonic fuel systems. These involve using sonic transducers to “vibrate” existing fuels down to much smaller particles, making them burn with up to 20 percent more efficiency. Cottell then went on to discover that superfine S-ionized water could be mixed perfectly with up to 70 percent oil or gas in these systems. This discovery was followed by much publicity (e.g. Newsweek, June 17, 1974). Then, once again – silence.
L. Mills Beam had his super-mileage carburetor bought out in the 1920s. In the late 1960s, he worked out a catalytic vegetable compound that produced the same super-mileage results. In principle, it was nothing more than a method of using the hot exhaust gases of an engine to vaporize the liquid gas being burned. By rearranging the molecules of gas and diesel, he was able to triple mileage rates, while obtaining better combustion, mileage and emission control.
He was refused and rejected by state and federal air pollution and environmental pollution agencies, and was finally forced to sell his formula abroad in the mid-1970s just to survive.
John W. Gulley, of Gratz, Kentucky, managed 115 mpg from his 8-cylinder Buick by using a similar vaporizing method as that employed by L.M. Beam. “Detroit interests” bought and suppressed the device in 1950.
Shell Research of London produced a “Vapipe” unit in the early 1970s that also vaporized petroleum at around 40 degrees centigrade, and used a sophisticated pressure-loss reduction system. But, alas, it was not marketed because it allegedly did not meet Federal emission standards.
In 1932, Russell Bourke designed an engine with only two moving parts. He connected two pistons to a refined “Scotch Yoke” crankshaft and came up with an engine that was superior in most respects to any competitive engine. His design burned any cheap carbon-based fuel, and delivered great mileage and performance. Article after article was published acclaiming his engine, but once again, to no avail. The Bourke Engine Documentary is the revealing book the inventor assembled just before his death.
Clayton J. Querles of Lucerne Valley, California, took a 10,000-mile trip across the country in his 1949 Buick on $10 worth of carbide by building a simple carbide generator which worked somewhat like a miner’s lamp. He claimed that half a pound of acetylene pressure was sufficient to keep his car running. But because acetylene was dangerous, he put a safety valve on his generator and ran the outlet gas through water to ensure there would be no “blow back.” The inventor also toyed successfully with methods of fuel vaporization (see Sun-Telegram, November 2, 1974).
In the 1960s, Joseph Papp built the highly regarded Papp engine. It could run on a 15-cents-an-hour secret combination of expandable gases. Instead of burning fuel, this engine used electricity to expand the gas in hermetically sealed cylinders. The first prototype was a simple ninety-horsepower Volvo engine with upper end modifications, with Volvo pistons attached to pistons fitting the sealed cylinders.
The engine worked perfectly, with an output of three-hundred horsepower. The inventor claimed it would cost about $25 to charge each cylinder every sixty thousand miles. Amid his accusations of media suppression, the idea has gotten nowhere.
G.A. Moore, one of the most productive inventors of carburetors, held some 17,000 patents, of which 250 were related to the automobile and its carburation. Industry today relies on his air brakes and fuel injection systems, but continues to completely ignore his systems for reducing pollution, gaining more mileage, and improving overall engine efficiency. More information is available from The Works of George Arlington Moore, published by the Madison Company (see U.S. Patents Nos. 1,633,791 to 2,123,485 for 17 more interesting developments).
In the mid-1950s, Joseph Bascle created the Bascle carburetor. The carburetor raised mileage by 25 percent and reduced pollution by 45 percent. Its inventor, a well-known Baton Rouge researcher, modified every carburetor in the local Yellow Cab fleet shortly after his arrival there.
In the early 1970s, Kendig Carburetors, under the title of Variable Venture Carburetors, were hand-made for racing cars by a small group of mechanics in Los Angeles. Eventually, a young college student bought one of their less sophisticated prototypes for his old Mercury “gas hog.” When he entered his Mercury in a California air pollution run, he won easily. Not only did the carburetor reduce pollution, but also it gave almost twice the mileage of a comparable unmodified engine. Within a week, the student was told to remove the carburetor, as it was not approved by the Air Resources Board.
The simpler Kendig model was due for production in 1975, but has yet to be produced.
In the late 1930s, C.N. Pogue of Winnipeg, Canada, developed a carburetor (U.S. Patent No. 2,026,789) that used superheated steam in its system and managed at least 200 miles per gallon. Much local interest, including threats from professional thieves, was not enough publicity to see this invention through to the marketplace.
In the 1940s, John R. Fish developed his “Fish” carburetor. It was tested by Ford, who admitted that the invention was a third more efficient than theirs. The design also could be easily switched to alcohol. Nevertheless, the inventor was hindered from manufacture and distribution in almost every possible way. He once even resorted to selling it by mail order, only to be stopped by the Post Office.
The device can currently be purchased from Fuel Systems of America, Box 9333, Tacoma, Washington 98401, phone 206-922-2228 (U.S. Patents Nos. 2,214,273, 2,236,595, 2,775,818)
The Dresserator was created around the early 1970s in Santa Ana, California, by Lester Berriman. It was based on a super-accurate mixture control using greatly enhanced airflow, and could run a car on up to a 22-to-1-fuel mixture. Test cars passed the pollution control standards with ease and managed up to an 18 percent mileage gain.
Although Holley Carburetor and Ford signed agreements to manufacture the design in 1974, nothing has been heard of it since.
On March 11, 1969, Mark J. Meierbachtol of San Bernardino, California, obtained the patent (U.S. Patent No. 3,432,281) for a carburetor that managed significantly greater mileage than usual.

TOP 10 IMPOSSIBLE INVENTIONS THAT WORK – by Jeane Manning
reprinted in Atlantis Rising on-line magazine, issue #4
Throughout history, experts tell innovators that their inventions are impossible. A few examples:
* The English Academy of Science laughed at Benjamin Franklin when he reported his discovery of the lightning rod, and the Academy refused to publish his report.
* A gathering of German engineers in 1902 ridiculed Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin for claiming to invent a steerable balloon. (Later, Zeppelin airships flew commercially across the Atlantic.)
* Major newspapers ignored the historic 1903 flight of the Wright brothers airplane because Scientific American suggested the flight was a hoax, and for five years officials in Washington, D.C. did not believe that the heavier-than-air machine had flown.
1. THE SPACE ENERGY CONVERTER
This class of inventions could wipe out oil crises and help solve environmental problems. More commonly called free energy or fuelless electric generators, they put out more power than goes into them from any previously recognized source. No batteries, no fuel tank and no link with a wall socket. Instead, they tap an invisible source of power. Such unorthodox clean energy-producing devices exist today and were built as far back as the l9th century.
Forget the Rube Goldberg mechanical perpetual motion contraptions; they had to stop eventually. In contrast, new solid-state (no moving parts) energy converters are said to draw from an energy field in surrounding space. This source of abundant power is known by physicists as the zero-point quantum fluctuations of vacuum space. Zero-point refers to the fact that even at a temperature at which heat movement in molecules stops cold, zero degrees Kelvin, there is still a jiggling movement, said to be from interdimensional fluctuations or cosmic energy. Magnetism and vortexian or spin-upon-a-spin motions seem to line up these random fluctuations of space and put them to work, as in the Searl Effect (Atlantis Rising, first issue). – [ now known to astronomers and physicists as “Dark Energy” ]
Inventors give various names to their space-energy converters. In the 1930s a scientist in Utah, T. Henry Moray, invented a Radiant Energy device powered from the sea of energy in which the earth floats. This sea that surrounds us, Moray said, is packed with rays which constantly pierce the earth from all directions, perhaps from countless galaxies. Converting this cosmic background radiation into a strange cold form of electricity, his device lit incandescent bulbs, heated a flat iron and ran a motor. His sons say he was thanked with bullets and other harassments, but that’s another story.
A spiritual commune in Switzerland had a tabletop free energy device running in greenhouses for years, but members feared that outsiders would turn the technology into weaponry. Before the commune closed its doors to snoopers, European engineers witnessed the converter putting out thousands of watts.
Among the free energy inventions of John Worrell Keely (1827-1898) is the Hydro Pneumo-Pulsating-Vacuo motor that used cavitation (implosion) of water. Although Keely reached an advanced understanding of the science of vibrations, he failed to develop machines which other people could operate. Progress continues from other directions, a company in Georgia is selling water cavitation devices that range from 110 per cent to 300 per cent efficient.
Up in Vancouver, Canada, Tesla researcher John Hutchison says he has a feel for the natural flows of a subtle primal energy. In the spring of 1995 he showed his latest invention to the author and a mechanical engineer. The Hutchison Converter involves crystalline materials and the principle of electrical resonance. He twirls a few knobs to tune it, and the energy flow is amplified until it runs a one-inch diameter Radio Shack motor. The whirring of a small propeller isn’t too impressive until you remember that there are no batteries and the device runs for days at a time.
The garage inventors come from many backgrounds. Wingate Lambertson Ph.D. of Florida, former executive director of Kentucky’s science and technology commission, invented a device which converts the space energy fluctuations into electricity which lights a row of lamps. This dignified former professor took a roundabout route to the free-energy scene. In the mid-1960s he read There Is a River by Thomas Sugree, who writes about the destruction of Atlantis through misuse of a crystal energy collector. Lambertson’s psychic friend later offered to collaborate on replicating the first Atlantean energy converter, but Lambertson eventually turned to his own knowledge of ceramics and metals to develop an energy converter. Neither his nor other known zero-point energy conversion methods of today are based on the first Atlantean crystal method, because the researchers found better methods. Also, the concept of a central power station providing electric power to a nation is obsolete, says Dr. Lambertson. Small energy converters will follow the path of the personal converter.
2. COLD FUSION
In Japan, cold fusion is called New Hydrogen Energy, and that oil-dependent nation welcomes successful experiments. In contrast, two pioneering experimenters were hounded out of North America. David Lewis described this scene as Heavy Watergate in Atlantis Rising, issue two.
Update: A successful experiment was served up in Monte Carlo in April, at the Fifth International Conference on Cold Fusion. Clean Energy Technologies Inc. of Florida demonstrated a cold fusion cell with energy output as much as ten times more than input. Other companies are also gambling on this new source of heat energy which could drive electric generators.
What exactly causes atomic nuclei to fuse, and release energy, without extreme high temperatures and pressures? A Romanian physicist writing in Infinite Energy magazine, Dr. Peter Gluck, wonders if it could be only partly a catalytic nuclear effect, and partly a catalytic quantum effect providing the capture of the zero-point energy, The ubiquitous z-p energy.
3. SYSTEM TO SPLIT WATER FOR FUEL BY USING RESONANCE
Another variation on the water-fuel theme relies more on vibrations than on chemistry. At more than 100 per cent efficiency, such a system produces hydrogen gas and oxygen from ordinary water at normal temperatures and pressure.
One example is U.S. Patent 4,394,230, Method and Apparatus for Splitting Water Molecules, issued to Dr. Andrija Puharich in 1983. His method made a single electrical wave form resonate water molecules and shatter them, which freed hydrogen and oxygen. By using Tesla’s understanding of electrical resonance, Puharich was able to split the water molecule much more efficiently than the brute-force electrolysis that every physics student knows. (Resonance is what shatters a crystal goblet when an opera singer hits the exact note which vibrates with the crystal’s molecular structure.)
Puharich reportedly drove his mobile home using only water as fuel for several hundred thousand kilometers in trips across North America. In a high Mexican mountain pass he had to make do with snow for fuel. Splitting water molecules as needed in a vehicle is more revolutionary than the hydrogen-powered systems with which every large auto manufacturer has dallied. With the on-demand system, you don’t need to carry a tank full of hydrogen fuel which could be a potential bomb.
Another inventor who successfully made fuel out of water on the spot was the late Francisco Pacheco of New Jersey. The Pacheco Bi-Polar Autoelectric Hydrogen Generator (U.S. Patent No. 5,089,107) separated hydrogen from seawater as needed.
A pioneer in breaking down water into hydrogen and oxygen without heat or ordinary electricity, John Worrell Keely reportedly performed feats which 20th-century science is unable to duplicate. He worked with sound and other vibrations to set machines into motion. To liberate energy in molecules of water, Keely poured a quart of water into a cylinder where tuning forks vibrated at the exact frequency to liberate the energy. Does this mean he broke apart the water molecules and liberated hydrogen, or did he free a more primal form of energy? The records which could answer such questions are lost. However, a century later, Keely is being vindicated. One scientist recently discovered that Keely was correct in predicting the exact frequency which would burst apart a water molecule.
4. SYSTEM FOR SENDING POWER WIRELESSLY
Look, Mom Earth, no power lines!
Tesla may have wanted to voice such a boast, but it didn’t turn out that way; the world is crisscrossed with transmission lines for the electrical power grid. His invention for sending electrical power wirelessly wasn’t too popular on Wall Street.
Before the power brokers figured out what he was up to, Tesla built a tower-topped laboratory near what is now Colorado Springs. He filled the mountain air with thunderous manmade lightning bolts and pounded the earth with electrical oscillations as he tested ideas about electrical resonance. Then he returned to New York to build Wardenclyffe, a complex wooden tower on Long Island from which he planned to send both communications and power wirelessly. When banker J. Pierpont Morgan realized Tesla could make it possible for anyone to stick an antenna in the ground anywhere and get electrical power, the banker cut off the inventor’s funding, blocked other financial deals that Tesla tried to make [and, is generally considered responsible for sending thugs to burn down Wardenclyffe].
In recent years, scientists such as James Corum Ph.D. have learned that Tesla did successfully test a wireless system in Colorado. For example, Tesla knew specific frequencies associated with the earth-ionosphere waveguide, knowledge he could not have had in the nineteenth century unless he had sent electrical oscillations wirelessly.
5. ANTI-GRAVITY DEVICE
In 1923 Townsend T. Brown’s simple flying discs demonstrated a connection between electricity and gravitation. Working along these lines for twenty-eight- more years, Brown patented (U.S. Patents 2,949,550, 3,018,394 and others) an electrostatic propulsion method. Starting with two-feet-in-diameter suspended discs flying around a pole at seventeen feet per second, he increased the size by a third, and the discs flew so fast that the results were highly classified, said an international aviation magazine in 1956. Before the end of his life Brown had apparatus that could lift itself directly when electricity was applied. He died in 1985.
The bottom line: if electrogravitics is developed, we could have an electric spacecraft technology which does not obey known electromagnetic principles. The craft would thrust in any direction, without moving engine parts. No gears, shafts, propellers or wheels.
Coupling effects between electricity or magnetism and gravity are shown by other experimenters, including David Hamel of Ontario and Floyd Sparky Sweet of California. At a 1981 symposium in Toronto, Rudolf Zinsser of Germany demonstrated a device (U.S. Patent 4,085,384) that propelled itself, according to credible witnesses such as professional engineer George Hathaway. Zinsser claimed his specifically shaped pulses of electromagnetic waves altered the local gravitational field.
Hathaway collaborated in the mid-1980s with John Hutchison on action-at-a-distance experiments in which heavy pieces of metal levitated and shot toward the ceiling when put in a complex electromagnetic field, and some metal samples shredded anomalously. Visitors to the laboratory came from Los Alamos and the Canadian department of defense. (The military is a quantum leap ahead of the academics in spooky science.)
Read the first issue of Atlantis Rising for a fascinating antigravity story, John Searle’s levity disk generator.
6. A METHOD FOR TRANSMUTATION OF ELEMENTS
Changing atomic elements or making elements appear mysteriously? It sounds like impossible alchemy, but experimenters recently did this, without Big Science particle accelerators. These scientists learned from a metaphysician, Walter Russell (1871-1963). During vivid spiritual experiences, Russell had seen everything in the universe, from the atom to outer space, being formed by an invisible background geometry. Russell not only portrayed his visions in paintings, he also learned science. He was so far ahead that in 1926 he predicted tritium, deuterium, neptunium, plutonium and other elements.
Recently, professional engineers Ron Kovac and Toby Grotz of Colorado, with help from Dr. Tim Binder, repeated Russell’s 1927 work, which was verified at the time by Westinghouse Laboratories. Russell found a novel way to change the ratio of hydrogen to oxygen in water vapor inside a sealed quartz tube, or to change the vapor to completely different elements. Their conclusion agrees with Russell: the geometry of motion in space is important in atomic transmutation. Kovac shorthands that idea to geometry of space-bending.
These modern shape-shifters speak of Russell’s feats such as prolate or oblate the oxygen nucleus into nitrogen or hydrogen or vice versa. To change nuclei, they change the shape of a magnetic field. Although they used expensive analyzing equipment, it is basically tabletop science. No atom-smashing cyclotron needed; just a gentle nudge using the right frequencies. Focus and un-focus light-motion, create a vortex and control it.
Cold fusion researchers are also running across strange elements popping up in their own electrified brews. No one is proposing to make gold and upset world currencies, but some experimenters aim to clean up radioactive waste by their novel processes.
7. ORGONE ACCUMULATOR
As Wilhelm Reich, M.D., (1897-1957) moved from Europe to Scandinavia to America, he left a trail of angry experts in every field he explored, from psychiatry to politics to sexology, biology, microscopy and cancer research. His work all led toward one unifying discovery, a mass-free pulsating life-force energy he named orgone, because he discovered it in living organisms before finding that it also permeates earth’s atmosphere.
Reich’s life ended in prison after prolonged conflict with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. His books and papers were burned by federal officials because the FDA had gathered a case against use of his orgone accumulator for therapy. The accumulator is a box made of layered organic and inorganic materials; experiments with it show anomalous results. An unusual temperature rise inside the accumulator indicates limitations of the second law of thermodynamics. Whether or not concentrated orgone can help with health problems, the accumulator does defy standard science.
8. The CLOUDBUSTER
In 1952 Wilhelm Reich invented a method of rainmaking that doesn’t involve cloudseeding with chemicals. Cloudbusting, otherwise known as etheric weather engineering, invokes principles that are hard for the conventionally trained mind to accept. The technology is low-tech; point some hollow metal pipes at the sky and connect their lower ends into running water. But unless you know both meteorology and orgonamy, please don’t try this at home, on our planet.
Among the properties of the primordial energy, orgone, Reich observed, are its absorption into water, its role in controlling weather and its dangerous state when excited by radioactivity. The planet doesn’t need any more mad-scientist experimenters manipulating natural systems, but it may need a more advanced understanding of what nuclear power plant emissions do to the atmosphere. (Reich’s followers warn that the planet’s life-force is disturbed by the excess radioactivity.)
9. THE RIFE MICROSCOPE & FREQUENCY GENERATOR
In the late 1920s Royal Raymond Rife of San Diego invented a high-magnification, high-resolution light microscope. This meant that he could see unstained living cells, unlike the dead specimens seen under an electron microscope. Basically, he developed an electromagnetic frequency generator which he could tune to the natural frequency of the micro-organism under study. Further, he learned that certain electromagnetic frequencies could kill specific bacterial forms.
New discoveries in biophysics not only shed light on the illumination process of Rife’s microscope, they also explain how he could selectively explode viruses. His concept of shape changing bacteria indicates that traditional germ-theory dogma is incomplete. Despite documented cures, his non-drug, painless electrical treatment of diseases was not welcomed by a powerful medical union.
10. ELECTRONIC TELEPATHY DEVICE
When Patrick Flanagan was a teenager in the early 1960s, Life magazine listed him as one of the top scientists in the world. Among his inventions was the Neurophone, an electronic instrument that can program suggestions into a person directly through skin contact. He made the first Neurophone at age fourteen, out of kitchen junk, his electrodes were scouring pads made of fine copper wire and insulated with plastic bags. He then wired the electrodes to a special transformer attached to a hi-fi amplifier. Holding the pads on his temples, he could hear, inside his head, music from the amplifier. Later models automatically adjusted the signal to resonate with the human subject’s skin as part of a complex circuit. Patent officials said it was impossible for a sound to be heard clearly without vibrating bones or going through a crucial nerve of the ear, and refused for 12 years to patent it. The file was re-opened when a nerve-deaf employee at the patent office did hear with a Neurophone.
At one time Flanagan researched man/dolphin language, on contracts with the U.S. Navy. This led to a 3-D holographic sound system that could place sounds in any location in space. He then perfected a Neurophone model which could be used for subliminal learning that would go into the brain’s long-term memory banks. But after he sent in a patent application on a digital Neurophone, the Defense Intelligence Agency slapped on a Secrecy Order and he was unable to work on the device or talk to anyone about it for five years. This was discouraging, since the first patent took twelve years to get.
Having helped certain deaf people to hear, Flanagan’s next miracle could be to help the blind to see. All we have to do is stimulate the skin with the right signals.
With public acceptance of inventions such as space-energy converters and super-learning devices, perhaps today’s innovators will pull the establishment, kicking and scoffing, into a new world view before the 21st century. However, figure that there will always be experts to say Forget it: such things are impossible.
