Amazing ; the stories discribe this technology to a T.

I am rather surprised that no one has made mention of all those religious stories from India where ancient metal craft flew through the sky powered by mercury...
edit here (added text)
In the Sanskrit Samarangana Sutradhara, it is written:
"Strong and durable must the body of the Vimana be made, like a great flying bird of light material. Inside one must put the mercury engine with its iron heating apparatus underneath. By means of the power latent in the mecrcury which sets the driving whirlwind in motion, a man sitting inside may travel a great distance in the sky. The movements of the Vimana are such that it can vertically ascend, vertically descend, move slanting forwards and backwards. With the help of the machines human beings can fly in the air and heavenly beings can come down to earth."
So, just like the TR-3B, you have a mercury rotating engine, unusual flight characteristics, and alien based.

I agree ; If done correctly this technology would supplant the old, I believe as long as the facade of oil dependancy continues, "the old farts " will not allow it.

Very glad you started this thread, HAMILTON. I've found many of the 'alienscientist' vids on utube to be entertaining and thought-provoking.
I was thinking the other day about how revolutionary technologies cause sea changes in a society. Consider that we, in the West, have only been 'industrialized' for just over a century. In 1909 the automobile was still a rarity. Imagine if the horse-and-buggy building industry had as much clout as the current Auto industry does....and all the other various industries that tie in....not to mention the Oil Companies.
How much disruption will occur with the introduction of wide-spread 'free' energy and anti-grav propulsion? Better yet, HOW can these new techs be integrated into society without doing terrible damage to the economies of countries?
This is the blocking point -- I think, it is the greed, and the inability to think outside the box. Done correctly, this new tech could supplant the old, and has the potential for MORE profits, if the greedy old farts would only see it.
