The Tesla Roadster, while awesome in its own right, is still an incremental and modern version of an old idea. It has made the idea of an electric vehicle practical, but not affordable. The Master Plan of Tesla Motors is to (wait for Li-ion batteries to come down in price to) make variant lines mass marketable. This is a normal route for disruptive technologies dependent on other technologies in more or less the same situation, and in this sense the business plan is sound, they take on a symbiotic relationship.
Unfortunately alternative energy is an innovative hotbed, and, like 100 years ago, we see many inventions springing up now, clamoring for market dominance under the strain of a collapsing predecessor infrastructure. The likelihood of a superior technology and business model attaining dominance before the Master Plan can be fulfilled is high. Memetically Tesla Motors is paving the way, and those in their draft now are looking for a tighter line around the Hydrocarbon Age. The CEO of Tesla Motors is overconfident with his pole position.
.At the Tesla Motors website the CEO states he receives unsolicited free energy proposals a couple times a week. He also states he's aware of the "Black Box" legend. The prior he doesn't bother to read because, "you can't break the laws of physics" and the latter is just a "story". I'm glad to see he went to so much effort. If I was him I'd have the foresight to admit maybe even one solicitation could yield a valuable piece of IP and that if it wasn't pursued it would end up being competition. Seriously, if you're going to name your company "TESLA" Motors it might be prudent to at least know who Nikola was, his intent, and honor him by hiring someone to investigate any and all free energy claims - heck I've been doing that at the expense of others for 10 years now! To not do this would cause Tesla to roll in his grave, ironically if you were to attach some magnets to him and wrap a coil around the coffin...
...DARPA has replaced the receiving conducting-body of the basic rectenna circuit with a nano-fabricated film, the design of which governs what frequency it will sympathize with. It can be manufactured to phase-lock with any frequency. They settled on the optical band and this effectively makes the SUN the transmitter.
It stands to reason then, that a rectenna could be pumped by the Earth's Schumann frequency, correct? If this is valid then it is also valid that the inventor of radio and fluorescent lighting could devise a plasma discharge tube tuned to the Schumann frequency (of which he was well aware) and that this tube replaced the conducting-body in his rectenna circuit. No violation has taken place, yet it is free energy, correct?
To go even farther in our independence and truly tap space energy instead of just the oscillations in it, I have designed an "Aether-Electron Coupling Rectenna" where aether is the uncollapsed superelectron or quantum plenum beneath the Zero Point Energy...

I will go mad.
I will just have to miss out on this interesting stuff, unless someone has a solution.
