The Laws of Thermodynamics:
The First Law states that energy cannot be created or destroyed; rather, the amount of energy lost in a steady state process cannot be greater than the amount of energy gained. This is the statement of conservation of energy for a thermodynamic system.
In simple terms:
Thermodynamics is the study of the inter-relation between heat, work and internal energy of a system.
The British scientist and author C.P. Snow had an excellent way of remembering the three laws:
1. You cannot win (that is, you cannot get something for nothing, because matter and energy are conserved).
2. You cannot break even (you cannot return to the same energy state, because there is always an increase in disorder; entropy always increases).
3. You cannot get out of the game (because absolute zero is unattainable).

Believe me, if anyone ever cracks over-unity... the whole World will get to hear about it. Try keeping a lid on the greatest discovery in scientific history aka energy from nowhere. You might like to investigate research into the Zero Point Field which shows more promise.
You bring it close to metal and voila, it overcomes gravity.

It's almost an irrelevance as to whether this works or not, the power companies, governments, seedy power brokers, and the MSM will all come together to make sure this sort of thing never actually reaches the public domain in a workable fashion.
