I always thought free energy, if it ever
happened it would be done with magnets.
They seem a good candidate. Again, magnets provide free force
. The only thing that's ever stopped us
from using them to generate free energy is that we have no way to generate energy without motion being involved. Even something as simple as a magnet
attached to the underside of your car demonstrates free force. If you could turn gravity or magnetic attraction "on and off" it would be trivial to
create a free energy device. Gravity isn't directional, but magnetism is. So it seems like rotation is the way to get the "on/off" effect.
Upon further thought, though...since the above described pair of rotating cylinders is a piston...that means they'll be moving back and forth. The
point at which the attraction is working against you is when the cylinders are closest...and when they're helping you, they're furthest, so the
inverse cube of distance
of magnetic attraction would generally not be in your
Consequently, the energy cost of the rotation would be far from free. It's possible this whole thing might net zero energy. But I'm not sure. Might
be time for theorist to step aside for experimentation. Again, it seems to me like converting free force into free energy really shouldn't be
