Not that I can say for sure, but I'm right where you are.
I have seen various ways that the "hutchinson effect" can be reproduced using mirrors, inverted platforms, cameras and magnets etc.
Just because the visual effects can be reproduced doesn't mean it's a fraud and I have no explanation for the meta materials he supposedly created
like the jellified metal, wood impregnated aluminum and all that.
Supposed efforts to reproduce the effects reliably in a lab have so far, to my knowledge, been inconsistent at best and I think John said something to
the effect that since his equipment had been confiscated that this is the reason he can't duplicate the effects reliably anymore?
I dunno, really.
One could speculate that a potential reason for the inconsistency could have something to do with natural geomagnetic fluctuations if those happen to
be a factor in weather or not the demos work...kinda like trying to fly in turbulent conditions to use an analogy...easier done when there is no
turbulence, but I have no intention of saying I understand or even support his claims. At most, I find them interesting if a hoax and earth shattering
if legit and easily duplicated.
Such is the case throughout history, I suppose. In some cases, alleged crackpots are vindicated while in others, lack of production would force one to
accept they were being duped all along.
With all the discussion being done about "biocentrism", I am more inclined to pull back my "sensor range" to that which I have observed myself and
anything else that I may find interesting is to remain tentative at best. I guess you could say this is a self-imposed system of faith limitation and
could stifle my own mind, but I hate the idea that our wants and desires make us so exploitable and ultimately distract us from things that are more
immediately important in life.
What's the difference between seeing it in a movie and some random person or official making a claim? If it's a lie, it's a lie.
My belief system is fairly well-founded in reality, I think, so while all of these fringe topics are interesting, I would attribute it more to my
interest in science fiction rather than having been completely ignorant of natural laws and some conspiracy contrived to hide these things from the
If John were really on to something, I should think he would have more support than he does which tells me something...be your own judge.
