The battery is used to get the thing running in the first place also.

It uses magnets to spin a device to create electricity, that is then stored in a battery.
Although on the surface it sounds great. I think back the the guy a year or so ago who had a contraption 5 times that size, charging 20 something car batteries, just to light a dozen or so light bulbs.
Sorry but as it stands the Magnets and Electric engine (Turbine) would have to be too big, the battery would need to be pretty big also if you wanted to power something like a car. The unit and battery would most likely be bigger than the car.
I mean the demonstration unit is pretty large considering it's only charging a C or D sized battery. Plus they're counting the raidiant heat as 1/3 of thier power produced also. Many times you don't wantheat, and it becomes a problem that you need a seperate system to cool.
Until they can get the scale correct, to something more manageble, where I don't need to carry something as big and heavy as a car Battery, just to power a simple walkman. It's useless.

Your guys heard of Professor Searl? in the 40's - 60's he invented a Magnet Motor which supplied unlimited power and was apparently anti gravity.
He had is home running from the device, after a few months of not paying for electricity the electrical company thought he was stealing power, they came out and couldn't work it out,
Actually, that is not what happened at all. "Searl was convicted of stealing electricity by bypassing his electricity meter, and damaging the property of the electricity company"
"Sandberg, as reported through Heerfordt, found a son of Searl "who had seen disks being suspended from wires, so that they could be photographed, but who hadn't seen any demonstration of antigravity or free energy."
It is a wonderful concept, and again, I applaud dreamers. However, I must yield to bona fide science.

To say that the present state of science understands physics is well, an overstatement. Science can't explain why electrons spin endlessly with no apparent power input! :LOL: It can't explain dark energy, dark matter and the origin of the universe, whether there is one, two or many universes, or even the size of our universe.
We do have a lot of theories..

I appreciate your well thought out premise to platform your curiosity. It gives food for thought. Magnetism is indeed not well enough understood.
However, to be clear, I never said that dreaming is not a bona fide science (although it's not.) Dreaming IS an important process to any good thinker. I agree with you. Dreaming can lead to many things, not the least of which are questions, inspirations and ultimately new possibilities.
Doesn't quantum say that if you think it, then it already exists?
