This is a boat. It is pushed along by the action of the wind on the sails. It can travel thousands of miles. If, like me, you consider free energy to be a source of power which you don’t have to pay for, then this boat sails with free energy as you don’t have to pay for the wind – it arrives free, all on its own.
This is a water wheel. It provides continuous energy because the river flowing past always turns the wheel. Because the river always flows past whether or not you have a water wheel, a water wheel is a method of accessing another source of free energy.
This is a hydro-electric dam where lake water flows through propellers and generates electricity. The water falls down through the seven generators under a force (erroneously) called “gravity” and “gravity” is always there and you don’t have to pay for it. So, a dam like this accesses free energy.
This is a windmill. If located in the right place its sails rotate continuously due to the wind and so it also access a source of free energy.
This is a parabolic mirror and it focuses sunlight on the horizontal pipe across the middle of the mirror. That makes the liquid in the pipe so hot that it can drive and engine and do useful work.
This house has twenty-one solar panels mounted on the roof. Those panels collect sunlight and convert it directly into electricity – more than enough to meet the needs of the people living in the house. That is another way to access free energy as sunlight arrives on its own and we don’t have to pay for it.
This is a compass and if held horizontally, the needle rotates to point in a North-South direction. Some force moves that needle, a force that is always there and which acts everywhere on Earth. We don’t have to pay for that force which we call “magnetism” and it is another source of free energy.
Please don’t pay any attention to the unscrupulous people who assume that you are desperately ignorant and so have never seen any of these things – people who say “there’s no such thing as free energy”. Those people know that they will be believed if they repeat the same lie often enough.
However, we have a problem. All these things, with the exception of the compass, are expensive devices. You would have to have a great deal of money to be able to afford to build a hydro-electric dam, buy a boat, build a water wheel or mount a roof full of large solar panels. So, the real question is not “does free energy exist” but instead it is “can we access free energy cheaply enough for it to be useful?”.- the answer is ‘yes’.
Let’s start with solar panels. They have two problems – they are expensive, and they only work for part of each day. We can get past those problems by buying a small solar panel and using a battery to store electricity for use during the hours of darkness.
Small solar panels offered for sale as “10 watt, 12 volt” capacity can now be bought reasonably cheaply. Made in China, these panels can provide a current of just over half an amp These panels which have an aluminium frame are typically 337 x 205 x 18 mm in size and look like this:
With a diameter of 30 mm and pins which are easy to connect to, these are very convenient devices which have an excellent lighting angle of 160 degrees and a light output of 165 lumens for a 1.2 watt electrical input.
One of the problems with such a unit is the selection of a suitable battery. Lithium batteries are excellent but the cost of a suitable lithium battery is ten times greater than the cost envisaged for the whole unit, effectively excluding lithium batteries. Lead-acid batteries are far too large, too heavy and too expensive for this application. Surprisingly, what appears to be the best choice is the very popular AA size Nickel-Manganese rechargeable battery which is 50 mm long and 14 mm in diameter:
Rated at up to 3 Amp-Hour capacity, they are very low cost, are lightweight and can be placed in a battery box like this
The battery box can be adapted to hold seven batteries rather than the intended eight batteries, producing a nine volt battery pack with 1.2V batteries. If three of these battery packs are used with the solar panel, then there is no need for over-charging protection as NiMh batteries can deal with overcharging current if it does not exceed 10% of the battery’s milliamp-hour rating, and that simplifies the design very considerably.
However, some of these small NiMh batteries do not live up to the maker’s claims and so you need to run a load test on any particular make of battery which you may consider using. For example, here are six different types of these batteries tested in groups of four, with a load of about 50 milliamps at five volts. The same load was used to test each of these batteries:
The results were most revealing:
The BTY 3000 batteries do not actually claim on the battery to be 3000 mAHr (although the sellers do) and so, the “3000” could just be a trading name. The tests results for the BTY 3000 were so staggeringly poor that the test was repeated three times with longer recharging time for each test, and the one shown above is the ‘best’ result. You will notice how far short it falls when compared to the low-cost Fusiomax 800 mAHr batteries. The terrible performance of the BTY 3000 batteries is only exceeded by the incredible “SDNMY 3800 mAHr” batteries which show almost negligible capacity in spite of their amazing claims of 3800 mAHr.
NiMh batteries are 66% efficient. You should only ever charge a 3000 milliamp-hour NiMh battery at 300 milliamps or less and so with a 10-watt solar panel, overcharging is not a problem.
Light meter tests provide some very interesting results for the LED arrays. When using two LED arrays side by side in a light box, the figures for voltage / current draw / light produced using 1.2-volt NiMh batteries were:
9 batteries 11.7V 206 mA 1133 lux: 2.41 watts 470 lux per watt (the manufacturer’s intended performance)
8 batteries 10.4V 124 mA 725 lux 1.29 watts 562 lux per watt
7 batteries 9.1V 66 mA 419 lux 0.60 watts 697 lux per watt (a very realistic performance level)
6 batteries 7.8V 6 mA 43 lux 0.0468 watts 918 lux per watt
This is very revealing information, showing that one of these LED arrays fed with just 33 milliamps can produce very impressive 210 lux lighting at a wide angle of illumination. To put that another way, feeding five LED arrays with 9 volts, generates a very acceptable 1000-lux lighting level for just 165 milliamps which is only 1.5 watts. That is spectacular performance.
Equally impressive is what happens when the battery voltage drops when the battery is nearly fully discharged. The LED performance rises to combat the loss of voltage and even at a ridiculously small 3 milliamps fed into each LED, there is a 21 lux light output from each LED array. The effect is that while the lighting does dim slightly, it does so very gradually in a barely noticeable way. With three sets of genuine high-capacity AA NiMh batteries, we can expect a minimum of eight hours of continuous 1000-lux lighting from our desk lamp. That is a total of twelve watt-hours, and the solar panel feeding 66% efficient batteries at nine volts, is capable of replacing one of those usable watt-hours in twenty minutes. In other words, just two hours forty minutes of good daytime lighting can provide eight hours of 1000-lux lighting every night.
The only moving component in this system is the On/Off switch and the circuit could not be any more simple than this:
All solar panels have a diode to prevent the panel drawing current from the batteries during the hours of darkness and it is not unusual for the panel to be supplied with a diode already connected in place. Personally, I would consider a fuse to be unnecessary but it is standard practice to fit one. The batteries are installed in a base box which supports the solar panel and gives sufficient weight to produce a very stable lamp. The five LED arrays are connected in parallel and fitted into a suitable lamp housing such as this one:
Only the flexible stem, 120 mm diameter lampshade and On/Off switch are used.
While this is an exceptionally simple and robust design, it is actually an affordable and very desirable unit which can provide years of cost-free lighting at a very satisfactory level. The prototype looks like this:
This is, of course, a perfectly ordinary and quite standard type of a solar-powered light. The difference here is that it is a very effective light suited to lighting a desk to a high level all night long. It is mobile and has a wide angle of lighting.
It is also possible to extend the design very slightly, to provide an even longer period of lighting or if preferred, a period of even brighter lighting. This can be done by using eight batteries in each battery holder – which has the advantage that standard battery holders can be used without any need to adapt them to hold just seven batteries.
This has the slight disadvantage that we do not want to supply the extra voltage to the LED arrays because doing that would cause a greater current draw than we want. We can overcome this by using an extra change-over switch and having two connections to each battery holder. The circuit could then become:
With this arrangement, the lighting unit is fed by either eight batteries or by seven batteries, depending on the position of the change-over switch. When the solar panel is charging the batteries, all eight batteries per holder get charged no matter what position the extra switch is in.
This has the advantage that when the battery voltage starts to drop after a few hours of powering the light, then the switch can be operated, raising the voltage reaching the lamp by the voltage of the extra battery, possibly producing a brightness exceeding the maximum when using just seven batteries in each battery holder. This arrangement has the slight disadvantage that the user could switch in all eight batteries from the beginning, producing a much higher current drain and while that would give a higher lighting level, the overall time is likely to be reduced. Mind you, it is possible that this might suit the user
If this style of operation is chosen, then I suggest that the extra switch is located well away from the On/Off switch so that the user does not get confused as to which switch does which job. Perhaps the second switch might be located near the stem of the lamp support, like this:
There are other variations which can be low-cost and very versatile. For example, instead of connecting the three battery packs together, they can be kept separate from each other, individually housed with the same circuit, each driving one of the LED arrays:
Here, three identical units are charged from the solar panel, which can be any size or wattage, although a ten-watt panel would be considered to be the minimum for daily use. Each unit is in effect, just a wide-beam, high-intensity, high-capacity solar torch which can be dimmed and which will stand securely when unsupported. It has the advantage that the units can be constructed one at a time, and if necessary due to time constraints, or perhaps, very poor daylight, just two or even one unit can be charged from the entire solar panel output. If manufactured and sold, then the units could be sold separately, allowing a lighting system to be extended and improved when additional funds become available (or when the user has tried one unit and discovered how effective it is). Each unit is easy to understand and use:
A built unit of this type looks like this from the front:
and like this from the back:
While these particular units have just one of the LED arrays each, tests run since that construction show that with manual dimming control, two LED arrays per unit would be more satisfactory. Also, if the second LED array is mounted on the side of the box, then the lighting angle increases from 160 degrees to 250 degrees which should be helpful for indoor lighting of a room. The units could, of course, be used in different rooms simultaneously and there is the option of carrying one around for lighting anywhere. Again, the construction is very simple and the same circuit as for the desk lamp shown above, can be used in each box.
If good-quality NiMh AA-size batteries are used, each of the mobile units is capable of providing good light for eight hours, which means that if it gets dark at 4 pm (16:00), lighting is available until midnight as a minimum, at which point in time, the user should be going to sleep.
You will notice that while we are using a solar panel and incoming light to provide the power for night time lighting, we ended up operating our light from a battery and using the solar panel for the power to re-charge the battery. While this works very well indeed, it is perfectly possible to re-charge the battery without needing a solar panel, or if we prefer, a whole row of batteries which can power an inverter like this:
to power a washing machine or tumble dryer. For example, we have this design of battery charger which is driven by a battery which it keeps charged itself and yet can still charge another battery:
This circuit is subtle. The circuit on the left feeds pulses of energy into the battery being charged, five times per revolution. It does that in the same way that the famous John Bedini’s charger systems do it. However, once per revolution a microswitch like this:
dumps the charge from one magnet passing the blue pick-up coil on the right, straight into the drive battery, maintaining its charge. It’s probably easier to understand the circuit if the two parts are shown separately like this:
The charger is started by giving the rotor a spin. That causes a magnet to pass by the coil on the left, generating a voltage in the green winding. That voltage causes a small current to flow into the Base of the transistor, and that causes the very high resistance between the Collector and Emitter of the transistor to drop to almost zero. That effectively connects the red “drive” coil directly across the driving battery and a strong current flows through it, turning the coil core into a magnet which pushes the magnet away, maintaining the rotation of the rotor.
The magic occurs then, because that red “drive” coil has its current cut off and due to the nature of coils, that produces a large, short-duration voltage spike across the coil. That voltage spike is potentially dangerous for the transistor as it could reach hundreds of volts and so the 1N4001 diode and the neon bulb are connected as shown in order to protect the transistor. The transistor Collector gets dragged up and up in voltage until it passes the voltage of both batteries, at which point the power in the coil spills into the battery being charged through the 1N4007 diode.
The circuit on the right is even more simple being just a coil, rectifying diodes and a feed to the driving battery through the microswitch.
The rotor is very simple, being just a wooden disc with five pairs of magnets embedded in it:
That battery charger uses the magnetic power used by a compass as each permanent magnet is a room-temperature superconductor of magnetic energy. But, we can produce excellent battery charging without using permanent magnets or needing a moving rotor. For example, we could use one of the motionless chargers shared with us by “Alexkor” of Russia. Here, a high-performance transistor is used to generate high-voltage spikes thousands of times per second and that allows one 12-volt battery to charge four larger 12-volt batteries at the same time:
This circuit is as simple as you can get. The coil is just two strands of half-millimetre enamelled copper wire wound side by side on a cardboard tube A resistor feeds some Base current to the transistor, a tiny capacitor across the resistor in order to set the frequency of the circuit, and one diode to feed the voltage spikes to the batteries.
The neon is not part of the circuit and is there only to protect the transistor against excessive voltage if the bank of batteries being charged are accidentally disconnected as the neo will light up and absorb the voltage spikes once they reach 100 volts or so. The physical layout of the circuit might be this:
All this, of course, is just common sense and a famous American architect called Michael Reynolds takes common sense a step further. He has a very low opinion of conventional housing which he considers to be just a “compartment” which is wholly dependent on outside power sources. His opinion is justified. He produces buildings which have been named “Earthships” by his wife, and that name has caught on world-wide.
Michael’s objective is to make a home which has no utility bills at all. A building which collects its own water and uses that water several times, generates its own electrical power, provides its own heating and cooling, grows some of its own food and uses materials which have been discarded by previous owners – old vehicle tyres, aluminium drink cans and glass bottles.
An “Earthship” can be a stylish and comfortable home:
Although, obviously, the overall cost of the structure and furnishings depends on the quality chosen by the owner, this particular Earthship is one shown in the film “Building Off The Grid” which can be found on the peer-to-peer network. It took fifty volunteers four weeks to complete the basic structure and then another team of workers who were paid to supply and install the fittings and fixtures.
The structure faces South and has twelve large solar panels mounted along the top of the greenhouse area. Although this picture does not show it, there is a drainage ditch along the back of the property to divert heavy rainwater coming off the protecting hillside behind the property. Notice the two ventilators on top of the greenhouse.
The walls of the property are seven feet (2.13 metres) thick. This is to allow the use of fairly simple materials and more importantly, to provide thermal mass which keeps the inside of the building warm in winter and cool in summer. There are no significant bills for heating or cooling and normal electrical equipment is run from the power supplied by the solar panels, a bank of batteries and a mains inverter.
The design of the electrical system is old-fashioned, using solar panels to charge lead-acid batteries. Initially, during construction, three of the solar panels were used and just propped up to face the sun and power a battery box with a mains inverter:
The overall design is set up for construction by unskilled workers under the supervision of a few experienced people, but let me point out that this is a Civil Engineering project and so a reasonable level of understanding is needed before you build one for yourself.
For example, the roof spans across the gap between the outside walls. The loading on any support beam increases with the cube of the distance between those walls. That means that if you were to double the width of a room, then the support needed to hold the roof up, increases by a factor of eight times. This can, of course, be achieved, but you really need to be aware of it. In this particular building, the roof is held up by many tree trunks which have been stripped and prepared for the job:
These beams are very heavy and are quite capable of causing serious injury if not handled carefully and sensibly. They form the joists which support the roof and as there is a gap of only one foot between them, many are needed as you can see from the shadows in the photograph above. The tree trunks are attached to the top of the wall by steel rods driven through them and on into the top of the wall.
The main construction is with vehicle tyres and about a thousand are needed for the building. Each tyre is filled with compacted earth and then they are stacked in a staggered bank and grouted in place using mortar.
Just to clarify:
1. Cement is a grey powder.
2. Mortar is a mixture of cement and sand, wetted with water and which sets into a solid.
3. Concrete is mortar which has pebbles mixed into it.
4. Reinforced concrete is concrete with steel bars in it.
Also used in these constructions is adobe which is mud and straw mixed together. Properly made adobe dries into a solid block and is used in hot, dry countries as a main building material, but it needs to be waterproofed against future rain.
The tyres are overlapped in successive rows, forming a stable structure, and the mortar grouting is applied between them. The outside is enclosed in an earth bank and the inside is smoothed over.
This style can be seen at the back door alongside the greenhouse area:
The constructional details can be found in the books by Michael Reynolds: “Garbage Warrior”, “Earthship”, “Comfort in any Climate”, etc. or full constructional plans can be bought direct from Michael.
Water is collected from the roof, filtered and then stored in massive plastic storage tanks which have a total capacity of 6000 US gallons (22,700 litres). There are no pumps as all water flows under gravity. Water used for washing is then used for toilets and then on to water the plants which grow as food.
The positioning of the tanks is important as they have to be just below the roof so that rainwater flows into them under gravity and yet they have to be higher than shower heads for the same reason (unless a pump is used for showers). A simple filter is used to remove any blown material which finds its way into the water intake.
While unskilled people can do most of the work, there are a number of trade skills which are needed – plumber for the piping, electrician for the electrics, engineer for the levelling and concrete work, glazier for the double glazing units, etc.
Steel bars called “rebar” in America, are driven into the walls, positioned to the exact height and then a reinforced concrete ring is cast around the top of the walls to give overall strength to the structure before the very heavy tree trunks are placed on it.
A nice feature of this style of construction is using coloured glass bottles in walls to allow light through the wall and to allow artistic designs which can give the impression of stained glass.
When the wall is finished off and the bottles polished clean, the effect is really good, especially since the glass bottles are effectively free, being recycled materials. However, choosing them as part of your living room is a matter of personal taste:
It is quite normal to have conventional styles of construction:
The important thing to remember about this house is that the walls are thick and so have high thermal mass. The “greenhouse” section all along the South side of the main building forms a heat buffer and provides water filtration.
The roof is seriously effective as it has a one-inch thick layer of timber with tarred paper covering it, and then an eight-inch layer of polystyrene laid on top of that, and finally a ridged metal roof is placed on top as the external surface. That is a seriously effective thermal roof.
This style of construction is certainly worth considering and while I certainly approve of it, it can definitely be improved. For example, the “greenhouse” section for growing food could be four times more effective if shaped differently. The very experienced Les Brown of Canada explains this. Les Brown experimented extensively with pyramids. It should be stressed at this point in time that while various facts have been observed, the effects caused by a pyramid are not fully understood and so no “Laws” have yet been deduced. We have therefore, to work on the basis of “this is what was done and these were the results”. Because of this, the following extract from the work of the late Les Brown is reproduced here and you must decide for yourself if what he says is true and whether or not it might be worth your while trying out some of what he says:
In conducting pyramid experiments you should look daily for signs of change and note them meticulously, and above all, be patient. Don’t plant a seed one day and expect to have a plant six feet tall the very next day. A plant takes just as long to develop inside a pyramid as it does outside, but as time passes you will see the tremendous difference in size. Also, don’t keep moving plants around inside your pyramid during an experiment – leave pots stationary so that you can see what the results are.
You can make your own pyramids. They can be constructed entirely from inexpensive materials. Cardboard, wire, plywood or anything rigid enough to retain the pyramid shape will do. The pyramid does not necessarily have to be solid – in experiments, just the outline shape is sufficient provided that it is joined at all the corners and at the apex.
Remember that with all types of pyramid, positioning is all important. One of the square base sides must point towards magnetic North. Use a compass to determine the direction of magnetic North. Several pyramids correctly orientated and stacked on top of one another will produce increased energy, cell activity and growth.
Using pyramids, I sincerely believe that I can grow 36 times more and better plants in a given area than any farmer or market gardener can in the same area using conventional methods.
When all four sides are put together, you must have a pyramid which is leaning in at 51 degrees, 51 minutes and 14 seconds. If you grow a plant inside a pyramid, it absorbs energy at a high intensity and so the result is enormous growth. When this is applied to vegetables and fruit, the plants as well as their products are immensely oversized. My own experiments have convinced me that this energy creates a special reaction in the living cells of plants, resulting in larger blooms, leaves and fruits on whatever plants are propagated within the pyramid.
The normal life cycle of lettuce from seed to maturity is six to eight weeks. Grown under a pyramid the life cycle is still the same but the plant is considerably larger. If you allow the vine type of tomato to mature to six or seven trusses under a pyramid while simultaneously allowing an identical plant to do the same outside the pyramid, giving both of the plants the same feeding and watering, a startling difference in yield occurs. I should mention that if you put your outside plant too near the pyramid it will reach for and receive some of the pyramid’s energy, so keep it well away to get a fair comparison. The outside tomatoes would weigh out at approximately 10 to 14 pounds per plant, while the plant grown inside the pyramid will produce between 50 and 60 pounds of tomatoes per plant. Not every type of plant grown under a pyramid will produce this increase but this is the average which I have come to expect from tomatoes.
A few more averages which I have obtained repeatedly are: lettuce two to three times larger than average; beans 25 inches long and 1.25 inches wide; cabbage – when controls were 3 pounds each, the pyramid grown plants were 12 to 13 pounds per head; radishes that would normally be the size of a quarter were four inches in diameter, control cucumbers that averaged fourteen inches in length and weighed up to one pound normally, were 21 inches long and weighed up to four pounds when grown in a pyramid.
Energised air in the pyramid also appears to repel small insects, so there is no need to use pesticides within its glass walls. Pest-free plants grow to maturity inside, with none of the setbacks plants subject to normal attack from pests suffer in the garden outside. This also means that pyramid-grown vegetables need no washing upon harvesting. The mere appearance of such plants is more appetising than that of plants grown normally. Greens are more vivid and many leaves have a sheen which is noticeably absent from kitchen garden plants.
An egg broken out of its shell and left inside a pyramid will gradually congeal and become like plastic as the pyramid energy works on its cells – harmlessly. The cells do not die or spoil. After a period of weeks or months, these congealed eggs can be reconstituted in water to the point where they can be eaten with complete safety, and they taste even more delicious than eggs prepared in the usual way.
One peculiar phenomenon which I have observed under my large pyramid is the formation of dew on the plants inside it. This happens early in the morning. During all my years of experience with greenhouses, I never noticed dew forming on any plants in conventional greenhouses. This dew dissipates gently as the sun grows stronger, exactly as it would outside. Also, after a recent thunderstorm, my pyramid cucumbers grew two to two and a half inches in a matter of hours.
I built a pyramid solely for research purposes. When building the prototype I encountered and overcame virtually all the problems one can expect to meet in a construction of this type. Building a pyramid is nothing like building a house, and while a slight difference in measurement can be overcome when building a house, it is not possible to make a mistake in building a pyramid and just carry on building. The particular piece containing the error must be pulled out and replaced correctly, as any mistake is transferred all the way around the pyramid.
My test pyramid is 30 feet high at the peak. The sides from base corner to apex measure 44 feet 4.5 inches and each base edge is 46 feet 10.5 inches. It contains two additional floors above ground level and the sum of the areas of these two floors is equal to or greater than that of the ground floor, Thus, the two additional floors virtually doubles the growing area.
My first floor is 12 feet above the ground and there is a reason for this. I calculated that when the sun was at its highest point, the first floor would have to be at 12 feet high to allow the sun to shine on the back North edge of the ground floor. The 12 foot height was perfect, but not absolutely necessary as there are as many plants that grow well in shade as there are plants that prefer the sun. In future, my pyramid floors will all be 8-feet apart and I will put my sun-loving plants in the southern half and my shade-loving plants in the back, Northern half.
By putting the floors at 8-foot intervals there is much more growing area. With floors inside a pyramid, the higher up the floor, the higher the temperature there. For example, if the ground floor is at 75 degrees F. then the second floor would be at 90 degrees F. and the third floor would be at about 105 to 115 degrees F. and each of the higher floors would also have higher humidity. The ground floor is perfect for such crops as radishes, lettuce, carrots, beets, tomatoes, etc. The second floor is ideal for cucumbers, squash, peppers and plants which like it hotter and more humid than the ground floor. The top floor can be used for lemons, oranges, figs and especially orchids.
The pyramid draws in its own water on the ground floor; I have never had to water that level which is built directly on the ground. It never draws too much or too little water, always just the right amount for growth. Naturally, I have to pump water to the upper floors, but because the ground floor provides its own water supply, at least half of my pyramid is watered automatically for no cost. I grow right in the ground on which the pyramid stands, but upstairs I have placed wooden planting troughs all around the floors, leaving room to walk, and I grow plants in these. It is a major job getting soil to the upper floors initially, but that is a one-time task. The troughs are 14 inches wide and 16 inches deep and have a bottom.
Space in the pyramid is used to the utmost. At the perimeter of the low areas I plant the kind of plants that need little headroom, and then plant the bigger crops towards the middle. This is a matter of common sense, but using the vine type tomatoes and stringing them up, one can work better between the rows, and if the lower leaves are removed, there is sufficient space to grow lettuce, cabbage or any low-lying crop in between the tomato plants. The trusses may be left on the tomatoes as they will not shade the low-lying plants.
To ensure a steady supply of food, it is wise to plant only a few plants of each variety at intervals, which means that in the beginning it will take several weeks to reap a full harvest, but after that there will be a continuous yield. By planting in such a manner, the grower will reap about six full crops each year. This method applies only to an enclosed pyramid, which would also need heating in the winter. The means of heating is up to the individual. Personally, I use a wood-burning stove because I have my own supply of wood. However, a wood and oil combination is best because it allows one to be away for a couple of days when necessary and then if the wood fire gets low, then the oil burner takes over.
In addition to food growth, the pyramid also has application in food preservation. I have read statistics which state that 40% of all food grown in my home country of Canada is lost to spoilage, whether at the place of storage, in transport, in wholesale or retail, or finally, in the home. Regardless of how this spoilage occurs, this state of affairs can be remedied. The energy of the pyramid which grows plants so amazingly well, can be used for the mummification of food, which can be dehydrated and kept in storage for an indefinite period without losing any of its taste or nutritional properties. There are absolutely no ill effects on any food stored in a pyramid. In fact, in many instances it is far better when reconstituted than it was in the first place. It has the water taken out of it but it also repels bacteria and as a result, nothing will rot in a pyramid. For instance, I cannot make a compost heap inside my pyramid – I have to do it outside, otherwise the ingredients in the compost all remain in good shape and will not break down. The grain grown in Manitoba today is a direct descendent of the grain found in the great pyramid, grain that had been there for centuries and had kept perfectly.
My pyramid is made from rough-sawn timber (not planed all over), cut on or near my property and milled by a neighbour. But it is not necessary for pyramids to be made of wood. They can be made of any rigid material which will support permanent glazing: cardboard, strong wire, sheet steel or metal, angle irons, logs – anything which will not curve and which can be measured precisely and fitted.
Pyramids do not have to have solid faces. For many uses, open-sided shapes will do, so long as all the corners are joined and the angles are correct. My present pyramid is made of timber and covered with heavy-gauge plastic sheet. Future ones will be sheathed in fibreglass, acrylic or glass. They will be closed pyramids solely because I propose to grow food during the depths of Canada’s frigid winters. My pyramid is built mainly of wood measuring two inched by four inches or two inches by eight inches, rough-sawn. Pyramids can be built any size so long as the proportions are correct.
There is a video of Les Brown lecturing here
There are reports of instances where dogs suffering from old age, lameness and hair loss have been cured and rejuvenated in about six weeks by the use of a pyramid.
Anyway, moving back to the Earthship, those massive rainwater tanks are really not necessary. An effective alternative is the 1961 design of Elmer Grimes which produces major amounts of clean water from the air. Essentially, it is a refrigerator which chills a stack of metal cones. Water condenses on the cones and is continually swept off by a car-style windscreen wiper blade:
This very effective water-making system could be powered by the expensive solar panels and batteries system already installed, or it could be powered for free with one of many devices such as the Chas Campbell flywheel for example. The water output is sufficient to sustain a ranch in Texas during a drought period. So, my opinion of the Earthship is that it is great, but it could be cheaper and much more effective.
Next, let’s consider a water wheel. The river water is moving slowly but very powerfully and that low rotational speed can be geared up to give higher revolutions per minute if that is what is wanted, However, being beside a river all the time is not convenient, so we would prefer to work with our own supply of water at our own home. This has been done very nicely by James Hardy. There is a video on Google which shows his self-powered water-pump driven, electrical generator shown: here.
This is a very simple device where the jet of water from the pump is directed at a simple water-wheel which in turn, spins an electrical alternator, powering both the pump and an electric light bulb, demonstrating free-energy.
Initially, the generator is got up to speed, driven by the mains electrical supply. Then, when it is running normally, the mains connection is removed and the motor/generator sustains itself and is also able to power at least one light bulb. The generator output is normal mains current from a standard off-the-shelf alternator.
James has Patent Application US 2007/0018461 A1 published in 2007 on his design. In that application he points out that a major advantage of his design is the low noise level produced when the generator is running. In the video and the pictures above, the demonstration has the housing opened up in order to show how the generator system works, but during normal use, the compartments are completely sealed.
In his document, James shows the overall system like this:
The housing is divided into three separate compartments. The first compartment has a strong axle shaft running through it, supported on ball or roller bearings – possibly ceramic for this environment. The bearings are protected by being covered by splash guards which keep the water (or other liquid) off them. A waterwheel of almost any type is mounted on the shaft and a high-capacity water pump directs a stream of liquid on to the waterwheel, striking the paddles at right angles in order to provide the maximum impact.
This first compartment is sealed in order to contain all of the liquid inside it and the bottom is effectively a sump for the liquid. A pipe located near the bottom of the compartment feeds the liquid to the pump which is located in the second compartment. The pump boosts the liquid through a nozzle, directing it at the waterwheel. While almost any nozzle will work, it is usual to choose one which produces a concentrated jet of liquid in order to generate the largest possible impact. One would expect that the larger the diameter of the waterwheel, the more powerful the system would be. However, that is not necessarily the case as other factors such as the overall weight of the rotating members might affect the performance. Experimentation should show the most effective combination for any given pump.
The rotating shaft is given a third bearing supported by the side of the final compartment. The shaft then has a large diameter belt pulley mounted on it, the belt driving a much smaller pulley mounted on the shaft of the generator. This raises the rate at which the generator shaft is rotated. If the pump operates on AC mains voltage, then the generator will be one which generates mains voltage AC. If the pump operates on, say, 12 volts, then the generator will be one which generates 12 volts DC. The diagram above, shows the arrangement for a mains voltage system as that is probably the most convenient. If a 12-volt system is chosen, then the inverter can be omitted.
The generator is started by pressing the ‘normally open’ press-button switch marked “A” in the diagram. This passes the battery power through to the 1-kilowatt inverter which then generates AC mains voltage. The switch marked “B” is a “changeover” switch, and for starting, it is set so that it passes the AC power through switch “A” to the pump. This causes the pump to turn on and direct a powerful jet of liquid at the waterwheel, forcing it around and so powering the generator. When the generator gets up to full speed, switch “B” is flipped over, disconnecting the inverter and feeding the generator power through to the pump, keeping it running and supplying additional power to the output power sockets mounted on top of the housing. The press-button switch is released, disconnecting the battery which is no longer needed. Switch “C” is an ordinary On/Off mains switch which is needed if you want to turn the generator off.
A major advantage of this generator system is that the main components can be bought ready-made and so only very simple constructional skills and readily available materials are needed. Another advantage is that what is happening can be seen. If the pump is not working, then it is a simple task to discover why. If the generator is not spinning, then you can see that and sort the problem. Every component is simple and straightforward.
James suggests that a suitable pump is the 10,000 gallons per hour “Torpedo Pump” from Cal Pump, web site: www.calpumpstore.com:
While the excellent design from James Hardy supplies power in an easily understood way, the amount of excess power which it can provide is well under one kilowatt. Donnie Watts shows how you can use your own small quantity of water to provide unlimited power:
Donnie recommends a simplified and improved version of the Clem Engine which is just a single cylinder. Donnie’s engine runs cold and is simple enough for many people to be able to build one. With a rotating cylinder of just 250 mm (10-inch) diameter, a self-powered output of ten horsepower can be achieved and ten horsepower is 7.5 kilowatts, so driving a generator with it would power a household. The output power increases with rotor diameter and with rate of spin and so in order to stop the device accelerating until it destroys itself, an inflow valve to limit the water entering the rotating cylinder is an important control requirement.
What needs to be understood very clearly is that this is an exponential power engine. The output power is proportional to the square of the rotation speed, so double the revolution speed and you quadruple the output power. Also, the output power is proportional to the square of the rotor diameter, so double the diameter and that quadruples the output power. So, if you double the rotor cylinder diameter and you double the rotation speed, the output power goes up by a factor of sixteen. The basic Coefficient Of Performance for the design is four.
Initially, it is necessary to start the device with a 500-watt water pump, but when the rotation reaches 60 rpm the device no longer needs the water pump although it can be left running if desired. At 60 rpm, the pressure inside the rotor drum reaches the point where the suction caused by the water passing through the rotor jets creates sufficient suction to maintain the operation. But, remember that this is a positive feedback system, with an increase in speed causing an increase in power, an increase in water flow, an increase in speed of rotation, and consequently, the engine will runaway self-powered and if you are not ready for that with a throttle on the rate of water flow into the cylinder, then the engine is perfectly liable to accelerate to the point where internal pressure destroys the engine.
In principle, the design is like this:
Most generators require to be spun at 3000 rpm or slightly faster. That speed can be achieved by the belt gearing between the output shaft and the generator’s input shaft. A generator of that general type could look like this 6.5 KVA unit costing £325 in 2016:
However, the output power of this design can be further increased by the inclusion of stainless steel thrust baffles on the inside of the housing. The idea is to have the jets of water strike a fixed surface at right angles to the jet and as close to the jet nozzle as possible:
The curved plate version is theoretically more efficient but the difference is so slight that flat plates are generally used. Let me stress that this device is effectively a fuel-less engine with a substantial output and it can power moving vehicles or run an electrical generator. It can be built in various different configurations.
The 25th September 1989 patent application by Donnie C. Watts describes the operation of the device:
CENTRIFUGAL ENERGY AMPLIFICATION AND CONVERSION UNIT
Description of Unit
The unit consists of two circular steel plates one eighth of an inch thick and four feet or larger in diameter, forming the exterior of a wheel. These plates are placed six inches apart on a hollow axle three inches in diameter. Between these two plates are four V-shaped pieces of sheet metal spaced precisely to form six-inch spokes which will direct water from holes in the central axle to the outer rim, while the inside of the V will form air pockets between the spokes. The ends of the V must not be closer than two inches to the outer rim of the wheel. All four V-shaped units must be precisely placed in balance with each other and securely welded to keep the air pockets and the water pockets separated. The outer rim of the wheel is made of a piece of one eighth inch thick sheet metal six inches wide, formed in a perfect circle and welded securely to the edge of the circular plates so that the area inside is completely enclosed. On this outer rim, directly in the centre, are placed between four and fifty water jets about the size of a football needle, slanted sharply to one side to give the wheel a turning motion. (The optimum number of water jets on the outer rim depends on the application, but the volume of water being expelled through the jets must not exceed sixty-six percent of the volume of water which can pass through the openings at the centre axle. The reasons for this are:
1. The water going out of the jets would be going out faster than the water entering the wheel which would result in no pressure near the outer rim, pressure which is essential for the running of the motor.
2. The water entering the wheel must go immediately into a puddle of water. The longer it remains a stream of water instead of a puddle of water, the more energy is wasted.
Because the water being ejected through the exterior jets is always less then the amount of water available to the jets, a pressure build-up will occur near the outer rim. A spring-loaded pressure release jet (not shown) must be built into the exterior rim along with the other jets, but facing in the opposite direction to keep the wheel from over-spinning if the load (generator) is dropped or does not take enough power off to keep the wheel speed constant. There are several other ways to control the speed.
The central axle is designed to have water going into one end of it, and an electrical generator attached to the other end of it. Between the water entry and the generator, very close to the wheel itself, would be very sturdy roller or ball bearings resting on, and attached securely to, a framework which will hold the wheel one foot off the floor. Water is forced into the axle via a high-volume low-power centrifugal force pump, approximately one half horsepower motor, at approximately 20 (US) gallons per minute depending on speed and power requirements. This motor and water pump is primarily to start the CEACU wheel and since the power from this is all added to the power output of the big wheel, I prefer to leave the pump running during operation.
The entire unit (depending on application) can be put into a containment shell which can be pressurised or evacuated of air. If the unit is to be operated in an open field, the outer shell can be pressurised and the starting pump removed or turned off once the motor is running by itself. If the unit is to be operated in a garage or near a house, it would be operated at atmospheric pressure or in a vacuum, in which case it is necessary to leave the pump attached and running so that air bubbles do not form near the central axle.
Also, the containment shell must be able to collect about ten inches of fluid in the bottom, waiting to be recycled through the wheel.
Important Notes Regarding The CEACU:
1. The speed and horsepower curve of a self-energised motor is exactly the opposite of that of a normal motor. A normal motor reaches a power peak and then starts downwards. The CEACU power curve starts with a slow upward climb and then accelerates rapidly until the power line curve is almost vertical (just prior to disintegration if speed control is not being used).
The CEACU motor will not generate more energy than is put into it before it reaches 60 to 100 rpm, depending on design and size.
2. As speed increases, air bubbles which occur in the working fluid will accumulate in the air pockets. The air pockets serve only to hold the pressure steady and give a gentle persuasive pressure that is multi-directional instead of just centrifugal, resulting in a steady pressure to the jets. It is not just possible or probable that the unit would blow itself apart by its own power (if the pressure were not released at some point or power taken off); it happens to be a fact. Air pressure will accumulate in the air pockets inside the wheel only after the wheel is going 60 rpm or faster.
3. The pressurised air in the outer rim of the wheel is essential because it pushes in all directions at once, while the water pushes in only one direction. In other words, centrifugally forced water is not interested in finding its way through the jets, it is only interested in pressing directly against the outer rim. The water holds the air in place at the same time that the air is forcing the water through the jets, and the water coming down from the axle keeps replacing the expelled water. This is why I keep saying over and over again, “Make it big enough, make it big enough”. Otherwise it would be no more workable than a small dam.
4. In order for this motor to work properly, the water coming down the spokes must not be restricted in any way until it reaches the outer rim. This is why we have six-inch spokes. The water resting against the outer rim cannot be moving about rapidly; we want the water sitting as still as possible under as much pressure as possible.
5. There are two primary factors which must not be altered in the design of this wheel, otherwise it will not work:
a. The spokes must be very large and free of restrictions, because liquid in general tends to cling to anything it gets near.
b. The speed of the wheel turning is essential to the centrifugal force required to build up the pressure near the outer rim, and for this reason the jets in the outer rim must be small in diameter and in large numbers so that the concentration is on speed instead of on volume (but not to exceed 66% of the water which can enter at the central axle).
6. Regarding the working fluid: Although it has been referred to here as “water”, the working fluid can be any kind of transmission fluid, oil, hydraulic fluid, etc., keeping in mind that the working fluid must also act as a lubricant for the bearings which are expected to last for ten to twenty years. I recommend regular off-the-shelf transmission fluid, which I have seen used alone in a car engine with lubrication results quite comparable to oil.
7. To the reader who would scoff at the energy which can be derived from pressurised systems, I offer the following facts:
a. Six months ago, it was demonstrated on a TV programme that a highly pressurised stream of water about the size of a football needle (with no additives, but just pure water), would cut through a one-inch thick steel plate. That same stream was used to cut through a two-inch thick phone book, and it cut so fast that no matter how quickly the person holding the book moved it, the stream made a totally clean cut through it.
b. Also, currently on the market is a turbine air motor made by Tech Development Inc. of Ohio and it has an output horsepower of 730, with an input air pressure of 321 psig, at 8400 rpm. This motor is only 7-inches in diameter and 14-inches long. This is not an over-unity motor, nor is it related to the CEACU motor in any way. I mention it only to illustrate what can be done with pressurised systems. So let’s accept the fact that we are talking plenty of potential, which will be found factual and workable in the CEACU motor.
8. The primary functional differences between, CEACU and damming up a river are: We create our own “gravity” and pre-determine the amount of that gravity by two methods instead of just one. The gravity in a dam can only be increased by building the dam larger; the CEACU motor can also increase the working gravity by increasing the rpm. This is done by adding more jets, right up to the point where 66% of the incoming water is being ejected. To use more of the available water than this would cause too much turbulence of the water inside the wheel. But keep in mind that there is always plenty of pressure inside the wheel to do the work it is designed for, providing that it is let run at a high enough speed to keep the pressure in the outer rim very high – in exactly the same sense that you don’t try to take off in your car until the engine is going at high enough rpm to handle the load application.
The only difficult part of this design appears to be the Slip Coupling where a stationary water pipe is joined to a rotating water pipe. While we are familiar with rotating lawn sprinklers which rotate using exactly the same principles as this Donnie Watts motor, namely impulse jet action, as shown here:
the key point is that the rate of rotation is low. That is entirely intentional as the manufacturer is considering the way that the various streams of water reach the ground. If you consider the rate of rotation, the fastest sprinkler is likely to be rotating at under 300 rpm which may be very much slower than our motor requirement.
Researching the various couplings on the market, the rate of rotation quoted is typically 400 rpm or less, which may be why Donnie quotes such a large rotor drum size and 3-inch diameter supply pipe (axle). Suitable couplings could be this one or this one each with a claimed 2000 rpm ability:

Okay, so let’s take a look at the windmill and see if it could be useful to us. Actually, assuming that we don’t need to mill grain, hammer steel or whatever, the windmill is already efficient enough as it is. Generally we could consider it as having two weaknesses, namely, the fact that the wind does not always blow in one direction and that has a traditional windmill winching its top section around to face the wind, and the fact that if the airspeed gets too great, the windmill itself can be damaged and so some mechanism for reducing the wind effect can be needed.
Nowadays, most people would want the windmill to act as a wind generator of electricity and so the October 2004 design of William McDavid junior is of interest. William remarks that a horizontal axis windmill creates an area of slow-moving air behind the blades and that restricts the flow of air past the blades. A way to overcome that is to project the outgoing air in a direction which does not impede the incoming air. He shows how this can be done in his patent US Patent 6,800,955 of 5th October 2004. In this design, the wind blows into the generator housing and is deflected upwards through the fan blades of a turbine which spins an electrical generator:
One clever feature is the use of a stationary circular housing with deflectors which uses the wind flow no matter what the wind direction happens to be at any given moment and so the device operates without ever needing to be moved. Looking down from above, the housing looks like this:
This view shows two important features which enhance the performance of the device. The first is that hinged flaps allow the (horizontal) inflow of air but block the air from flowing straight out of the other side of the central section. This forces the wind to turn and flow upwards, and not only that, but this arrangement causes the air to spin, creating a miniature tornado vortex which amplifies the power of the wind as can be seen from the devastation caused by full-size tornadoes in the environment. As can be seen from the upper diagram, an upward-curving conical piece on the base of the housing assists the airflow to turn upwards as it spins. The spinning air helps to spin the generator blades faster, giving additional power.
A major additional feature is the fact that the dimension “A” is considerably less than the dimension “B” due to the reduced diameter of the housing nearer the centre. This means that the air flowing past the vanes of housing gets squeezed into a smaller space as it flows. This forces the air to speed up, causing the flow inside the central housing to be higher than the wind-speed outside and that boosts the performance of the device. This wind-powered generator looks like a straightforward project for home construction and with the air being deflected vertically, there does not appear to be any reason why several should not be located near each other. William’s full patent can be seen in the appendix of my eBook.
Then we have the remarkable design of Mike Waters. There is an excellent lecture of his here although the video quality is not by any means perfect. It does contain a most astonishing statement worthy of the Hall Of Fame of sayings where Mike states that perpetual motion is of no practical use as it just goes round and round. If you give me a disc which goes round perpetually of its own accord, I will promptly attach magnets to it and mount stator coils opposite those magnets and extract free electricity from it for ever. However, that aside, Mike describes a simple wind turbine design of his which is highly efficient. He points out that as wind flows past an obstruction, it speeds up. He uses this fact to boost the performance of his wind turbine. Next, he puts the turbine blades as far from the axle as possible in order to get the largest lever arm for the wind force on the turbine blades. The design is a simple circular disc forming the obstacle for the wind, and turbine blades mounted around the circumference of the disc:
The performance is most impressive with the generator producing power at a wind speed of just 1 kilometre per hour. To understand that, consider the fact that you can walk a kilometre in about ten minutes, so a wind speed of one kilometre per hour is only one sixth of your walking speed.
Mike points out that the force turning the generator is proportional to the square of the wind velocity. That means if the wind speed doubles, then the force powering the generator goes up by a factor of four. If the wind speed catches up to your walking speed, then his generator output would increase by a factor of 36 times. So the main point here is that any acceleration boosts the generator output. So, just to get the operation clear in your mind, Mike’s wind turbine has the wind flowing directly on to the circular plate and to get past it, the wind accelerates sideways to flow around the plate and continue on along its normal flow path. However, the wind accelerates as it moves sideways and so is moving faster than the general wind speed when it reaches the turbine blades at the edge of the disc and so provides a substantial energy boost to the rotor disc. There remains the fact that the generator has to be rotated to face the wind and that calls for a bearing and a tail fin.
Then we come to the compass and the fact that it uses magnetism to provide a very useful pointer to the direction of North which is something which has saved many lives over the years.
Most people use permanent magnets without realising it. Loudspeakers use permanent magnets, so if you listen to the radio, watch TV, have an mp3 player or a computer with a sound system, then you are using permanent magnets.
The people who have been opposing the introduction of free energy generators for more than a hundred years now, say “magnets have power but they can’t do useful work”. That is a ridiculous statement because magnets do not have power and they most certainly can do useful work. For example, consider the permanent magnet motor of Charles Flynn which is shown in patent US5,455,474 of October 1995. The patent states that the motor produces “a substantial amount of output energy and torque”.
Because it has a battery, you might mistake it for a motor which is powered by electricity, but it is most definitely not. It is a motor whose power comes from permanent magnets. A permanent magnet is a room-temperature superconductor of magnetic energy. We live in a massively powerful energy field and a permanent magnet focuses that power and channels it through itself.
The Flynn motor uses coils of wire to oppose the effect of a permanent magnet. This screening effect is powered by a 9-volt dry battery and the motor reaches a speed of 20,000 revs per minute. The basic design is like this:
The vertical output drive shaft is mounted in a bearing attached to the “upper plate” shown above. That bearing maintains the gap between the rotor and the ring magnet attached to the upper plate. The magnet embedded in the non-magnetic rotor continuously pulls down towards the ring magnet:
There is not the slightest inclination for the rotor to rotate as the rotor magnet pulls straight down. The challenge is therefore, to produce a powerful rotational movement from the arrangement.
These are the working parts:
The key factor is the set of seven stator coils and the two rotor magnets. If one rotor magnet is directly over a coil, then the other rotor magnet will be half way between two of the stator coils. This is a clever arrangement which provides self-starting rotation after power down.
With no coil powered up, the arrangement is like this:
The South pole of the rotor magnet is attracted to the North pole of the stator ring magnet. The attraction is mostly straight down but there is also a pull to the right and a pull to the left, but those balance out and so there is no movement.
However, the opposite rotor magnet straddles two coils:
And, if we were to turn on coil “32” in such a way that it opposes the attraction between the rotor magnet “56” and the stator ring magnet, then there will be a sideways pull in the direction of coil “34” and the rotor magnet will move in that direction and then stop.
But we don’t want it to stop, so we turn on coil “34” at just the right moment, and the process repeats. You will notice that only one coil needs to be powered up at any one time. Actually, the coil which is powered up next is under the rotor magnet on the other side.
The switching is done with a timing disc which is attached to the rotor shaft:
The timing disc section has three parts. One part holds seven light-emitting diodes, another has seven matching phototransistors or light-dependent resistors which are positioned exactly under the seven stator coils, and finally the optical disc which has two slots cut in it, slots which are positioned exactly under the rotor magnets.
The rotor is the only moving part in this motor. The optical disc is attached to the rotor and it switches on the coil attached to the phototransistor when light shines through the slot. The next step in the development of this motor is adding a second stator ring magnet and coils above the rotor, like this:
The switching for the extra coils is identical to that for the lower set of coils and with a pull on both sides the rotor gets a balanced pull as well as a much more powerful pull:
With this arrangement, two coils are powered up at any one moment, but of course, this drive set-up can be replicated as many times as you wish, with the motor power increasing to a major degree with every added drive section.
Here is a motor with four drive sections:
Here is Charles Flynn’s circuit for driving one of the coils:
Here, the 9-volt battery feeds current through resistor “R1” to make the Light Emitting Diode shine light on to the timing disc. When the slot in the timing disc comes around, the light shines through the slot an causes the high resistance of the opto transistor to drop to a very low value compared the resistance of resistor “R2”. That pulls the voltage on the Gate of the Field Effect Transistor high, causing what was a very high resistance between the Source and the Drain of the transistor to drop to almost zero, feeding current through the coil as long as the light shines through the slot in the timing disc – that is a very short time indeed as the rotor spins very fast.
There are seven of these circuits, one for each of the seven stator coils. This diagram shows just two of those seven circuits:
If, as would be normal, several sets of drive magnets are being used, then the coils positioned vertically above each other in a column are wired together and driven by one of those seven circuits:
This is a very simple and straightforward magnet motor with all of the output power coming from the magnets and none from the battery which is only used to power an electromagnetic shield to produce unbalanced forces.
I keep getting asked “what diameter wire and how many turns in each coil?” but there is no answer to that question. The magnetic effect of a coil is not related to the power fed into the coil and a coil with many turns of small diameter wire, drawing little current, can easily have a stronger magnetic field than a coil with fewer turns of thicker wire and drawing a much greater current.
Also, magnets vary a great deal in their strength and there is no way that I can know how powerful your magnets are. Finally, the gap between the magnets makes a major difference. So, I suggest that you construct the basic first step of this:
where there is just one stator ring magnet. Choose the gap between the rotor and the stator. Then choose a wire diameter and wind a coil to see what effect it has. Try different coils to see what works really well with your magnets, and then use that coil everywhere.
While the rotor magnets are shown as being tapered in towards the drive shaft, but that is not essential and rectangular magnets can be used.
There is also the permanent magnet motor/generator of Robert Adams of New Zealand and that can generate kilowatts of excess power, enough to power a home and a business.
There are many other ways to access the limitless energy field in which we live – aerials, gravity, water splitting, rotation, inertia, magnetic transfer, ground energy, isotopic exchange, magnetic coupling, inert gas motors, optical amplification, etc. etc.
The purpose of this web site is to provide you with an introduction to a series of devices which have been shown to have very interesting properties and some are (incorrectly) described as 'perpetual motion' machines.
What's that you say - perpetual motion is impossible? My, you're a difficult one to please. The electrons in the molecules of rock formations have been moving steadily for millions of years without stopping - at what point will you agree that they are in perpetual motion?
So, why don't electrons run out of energy and just slow down to a standstill? The universe is a seething cauldron of energy with particles popping into existence and then dropping out again. If Oliver Heaviside's equation E = mC2 is correct, then we can see that a tremendous amount of energy is needed to create any form of matter. Scientists remark that if we could tap even a small part of that energy, then we would have free energy for our lifetime.
The Law of Conservation of Energy is generally thought to be correct when it states that more energy cannot be taken out of any system than is put into that system. However, that does not mean that we cannot get more energy out of a system than we put into it. A crude example is a solar panel in sunlight. We get electrical power out of the panel but we do not put the sunlight into the panel - the sunlight arrives on its own. This example is simple as we can see the sunlight reaching the solar panel. In passing, it might be remarked that the "Law" of Conservation of Energy has recently been proved to be wrong, however, it wouldn't bother me at all if it were actually right as it assumes a "closed system" which is something that does not exist anywhere in the universe.
Many people have produced devices and ideas for tapping this energy. The energy is often called "Zero-Point Energy" because it is the energy which would remain if a system has it's temperature lowered to absolute zero. This presentation is introductory information on what has already been achieved in this field: devices which output more power than they require to run. This looks as if they contradict the Law of Conservation of Energy, but they don't, and you can see this when you take the zero-point energy field into account.
The material on this web site describes many different devices, with diagrams, photographs, explanations, pointers to web sites, etc. As some of the devices need an understanding of electronic circuitry, a simple, step-by-step instruction course in electronics is also provided in Chapter 12. This can take someone with no previous knowledge of electronics, to the level where they can read, understand, design and build the type of circuits used with these devices.
This is a very interesting field and the topic is quite absorbing once you get past the "it has to be impossible" attitude. We were once told that it would be impossible to cycle at more than 15 mph as the wind pressure would prevent the cyclist from breathing. Do you want to stay with that type of 'scientific' expert? Have some fun - discover the facts.
There are many, many interesting devices and ideas already on the web. This site does not mention them all by any means. What it does, is take some of what are in my opinion, the most promising and interesting items, group them by category, and attempt to describe them clearly and without too many technical terms. If you are not familiar with electronics, then some items may be difficult to understand. In that case, I suggest that you start with Chapter 12 and go through it in order, moving at whatever speed suits you, before examining the other sections. I hope you enjoy what you read.

If the mainstream news services are to be believed (and that is definitely not something that we can be sure of), then we have a major health problem which they describe as us entering a "post antibiotic era". Before the discovery of antibiotics, a simple illness such as 'flu could kill you. This was a major factor in the very slow growth of human population in those times. Then, antibiotics were discovered, and previously fatal diseases became treatable. The result was that people who would have died now survived and lived to much greater ages. That strengthened the family unit as survival has always been the goal of families.
The pharmaceutical companies jumped on the band wagon, but their major aim is to make money from sick people. They want to sell drugs, potions and salves - nothing wrong with that. But unfortunately, they realise that keeping a patient from dying but not curing the patient makes the most money. So, for example, cancer treatment is very expensive and very prolonged. The cancer is poisoned along with the patient and it is common for conventionally treated patients to die within five years of their poisoning (err, "treatment"). The care staff who treat these patients are excellent, well-meaning people who have been told that this is the best that anyone can do for the patient. This lack of knowledge is very painful to see as are reports on the news that somebody has been abandoned to die as their cancer is "untreatable" (which, of course, it isn't as there are several effective ways of dealing with cancer - the snag is that those ways are simple and cheap and therefore highly unpopular with pill manufacturers).
However, the problem now is that antibiotics have been used too freely on humans and on farm animals, and that has resulted in infections which are immune to every antibiotic available to the pill-pushers, who now consider that we are going to return to simple diseases becoming fatal again. That does not have to happen.
I am not a medical expert, but let me explain some of the simple treatments which you can use yourself. Let's start with colloidal silver. This is a very basic and wholly safe liquid which is distilled water which has very tiny particles of pure silver in it. Each particle of silver is given an electrical charge and the particles are so tiny that they never settle out of the water. The treatment is to take a teaspoonful of the water in your mouth four or five times per day. It is tasteless and safe. You can buy it made up (and labelled 'not for consumption' by the supplier for fear of the pill manufacturers) or you can make it very easily yourself in just a few minutes. What happens is that the charged particles are so small that they migrate from your mouth into your bloodstream within one minute. There they circulate around your body and when they encounter an infecting microbe, they enter the microbe and kill it. Cancer is those microbes hijacking the essential replication mechanism of your own cells making them multiply when they shouldn't. Due to their very small size, the silver particles destroy the hijacker and restore the cells to full health again. That happens anywhere that blood goes in your body and I have not yet heard of any disease which colloidal silver does not deal with, including diseases which the medical profession honestly believe are incurable. Details are here.
Instead of using charged silver particles, it is also possible to kill off the invaders in your bloodstream by passing a very tiny pulsing current through your bloodstream. This can be done using electrodes strapped to your wrists. It is not a painful process and if you wish, you can make the equipment yourself. Several different designs are put forward by different doctors, and the one here is well explained by Bob Beck who himself benefitted enormously from it, and it is explained in detail in chapter 12 pages 57 to 60 of my free-energy e-book.
Perhaps I should mention that the drive to sell you pills and potions is so strong that they will cheerfully poison you and sell you things which they know perfectly well are useless. For example, "remedies" for colds and flu are commonplace although they do not deal with the infection at all - colloidal silver does. You are also sold toothpaste with fluoride in it, under the ridiculous claim that it whitens your teeth. They might as well claim that it will grow you a third leg. Fluoride is a serious poison which gives your teeth brown patches. If a child swallowed a piece of fluoride toothpaste the size of a pea, it would die. Fluoride is put in toothpaste to get rid of an unwanted industrial poison, and getting people to pay for disposing of it will be found amusing by the manufacturers.
An alternative to colloidal silver (although, unlike colloidal silver, one which has a nasty taste) is MMS and there is a very informative film about it and its effects here and can be seen if you click on the "Watch Full Documentary" button at the bottom of the screen. Another video is here.
Chas Campbell of Australia says:
Would you like to be part of IMPROVING EVERYTHING?
For many years now, I have been experimenting with ways to use free energy, Gravity, Leverage, Coasting! To drive a Machine that drives an Alternator witch produces 240 volt AC electricity. This task is now completed and my simple, commonsense machine which can operate Anywhere, Anytime, requires an international company to make it available to all. When I started this venture all I wanted to achieve was to prove that Perpetual Motion was possible. After achieving that, Over Unity became an obsession but because what I was trying to do was deemed to be impossible no one would help me and was told that I would have to carry out all my own experiments to find out what works and what doesn't. After spending $30,000 and a third of my life, I now have a machine that can be packed in a crate, sent anywhere, and assembled by anyone, and which will provide up to 5 kilowatts of CLEAN electricity continuously, with a running cost of 0.83 kilowatts, (the benefits are endless).
We all know that to create power/energy you must combine weight with speed. So after I found out what power was required to run a electric motor un-loaded I carried out many experiments to find out how much centrifugal force could be created without using more power. Centrifugal force creates enormous power as well as having great coasting ability. In 2010 I had a machine that would produce electricity without any input, and that's Free Power. But as coasting won't last I designed a machine that can't stop and produces electricity 24/7 to be used or stored whenever you wish.
My machine is all about commonsense IT PRODUCES ELECTRICITY WHILE IT'S COASTING.
