Thanks for the question. One thing I emphasize in my work is that my radicalizing journey was involved with technologies that operated BELOW what we
would consider FE. Together, they might have had a chance.
My first professional mentor invented what was hailed as the best engine for powering an automobile:
I was a teenager when it made a splash in scientific and technological circles, and that is when my alternative energy dreams began. Then I had two
paranormal events lead me into business studies:
and Dennis Lee’s company:
Then my wild ride began. Dennis was making, marketing and installing the world’s best heating system when we met:
Neither one of those technologies, by themselves, were initially thought of or promoted as being able to make free energy, but Dennis’ journey is
the best example that I know of to understand the real world of capitalism, particularly in the energy arena. However, in late 1987, my first
professional mentor proposed that marrying his engine to Dennis’ heat pump panels might be able to produce “free energy” (he also testified in
court to his opinion). Back then, I was on the business end of our venture (I was the controller and financier), not the technological end, and they
did not bring me in very far to the technical end of things. We began making a prototype of my mentor’s engine, and then Victor Fischer came along
with his own hydraulic heat engine (Fischer also thought that FE was possible with his engine and Dennis’ panels):
so we began making one of those instead, and that is when the Big Boys dropped the hammer on us and the nightmare of my life began.
I will always be getting over it. After I left Ventura (I hope I never see the place again), I began researching the technology that we were
pursuing. I did not have access to my mentor or Fischer, so I muddled through thermodynamic textbooks and patents and understood the mechanics of
what they proposed. It flies in the face of the Second Law of Thermodynamics. I am skeptical myself that it will work, but it would be nice if those
geniuses could speak for themselves on the issue. However, they both know what the sledgehammer feels like, so they will not be speaking publicly
about their technologies anytime soon. I believe that even if those technologies could not produce FE, they are still the world’s best heating
system and the world’s best engine for powering an automobile, and both are worth trillions of dollars on that alone.
As you might guess, when we were standing on the national stage, we became a lightning rod for people like us. Many approached us with other
technologies and grim tales of how they fared with their own alternative energy/disruptive technology efforts:
Of all the technologies that could do FE, I would rank marrying Dennis’ heat pump with hydraulic heat engines well down the list. It would be a lot
of capital investment for something that may not produce that much energy (if it would work at all – FYI, in the late 1990s, Dennis got back
together with Fischer, and they built a prototype that ran on its own steam for an entire day – the stuff may have legitimate FE potential – but
it looks like the Big Boys got to Fischer with the carrot).
Stuff like Sparky Sweet’s, with no moving parts, blows away heat pumps and heat engines:
As, as you might imagine, when you play at the levels that we did, you begin running into people with truly incredible tales to tell, and some in our
circles have been able to briefly glimpse behind the curtain at what the Big Boys have developed:
That is the irony of what people like Dennis, Greer and others are attempting. They KNOW that the Big Boys have anti-gravity, FE and many other
disruptive technologies in their hands, and they make sure that nothing gets out to the public, but they keep plugging along on a shoestring, after
rejecting vast bribes to cease their efforts.
Not long after Brian O’Leary invited me to help found NEM:
I read an article by Eugene Mallove that mentioned taking environmental heat and making FE was possible:
That was EXACTLY what we were pursuing, and I had Brian get me in touch with Mallove. Mallove proceeded to inform me that the Second Law was rubbish,
and that he had reproduced Reich’s famous experiment with orgone energy:
I sent him patents and other information and looked forward to some rewarding exchanges to help enlighten me on the thermodynamics of what we were
pursuing. Mallove’s murder a few months later ended our conversation. Almost nobody in Mallove’s circles believes that his murder was a random
act. Brian began planning his move to Ecuador almost immediately after Mallove’s murder, and Brian has publicly stated that Mallove’s murder made
him realize that the U.S. was no longer a safe place for FE activists.
So, that is a little of the technical background. Again, whether heat engines married to heat pump evaporators can do FE is really not all THAT
interesting to me. My journey led me to the political-economic aspects of the alternative energy milieu. Paradoxically, technology is not the
problem. The reasons that we do not have enjoy the benefits of FE today are political-economic in nature (including spiritual aspects), not
technological. The scientifically-trained, however, almost never understand. They are either naïve or paranoid.
On comprehensivism, my pal Steve Meyers studied under Bucky:
and I am almost envious. Steve called me a “comprehensivist” several years ago, and it was the first time I heard the term. Bucky’s work was
revelatory to me, and it was comforting to realize that somebody had been there long before me. I was not able to fully articulate my perceptions
before digesting Bucky’s work.
