Already, in the estimation of an ever growing number of thinking men, the inventions and discoveries of the present century have proved themselves a curse rather than a blessing. They have raised the world's standard of comfort, and at the same time they have lowered the power of purchasing these very comforts, a desire for which they have generated. The advantages that accrue from steam and from machinery have not been distributed, but have become the property of a small minority.
Year by year the competition is becoming fiercer, and labor more arduous and continual, and men are growing more and more like living machines, and the helpless slaves of machinery and of institutions. An operative, in these days of steam power, has less liberty than a slave ever had, ex-
p. 14 .....cept in one particular – he has full liberaty to starve, or work himself to death, neither of which privileges an owner would allow him. Keely, however, thinks his discoveries will restore this disturbed equilibrium.....
p. 14 The direct effect of modern discoveries and inventions has been the rise of the commercial and economic system; and the inevitable consequence of that system has been to deepen the gulf between the poor and the rich......
Were such inventions given to the world in their completeness, the whole of the enormous power they gave over human life and destines would, it would seem, fall into the possession of the same small minority who at present control the power conferred by our present inventions and discoveries – the capitalists.
If so, that section of the community would then, under our present institution, obtain almost absolute power over the great majority – those who depend upon their labor for their support. The capitalists who owned the tremendous powers implied in a monopoly of Keely's inventions would be practically the absolute masters of the people; and obedience to their will would be far more really, than even now, the condition upon which those who were not capitalists also would be allowed the means of continued existence.
Man the most perfect of organized beings on earth, in whom matter and spirit -ie., Will – are the most developed and powerful, is alone allowed to give a conscious impulse to that principle which emanates from him, and only he can impart to the magnetic fluid opposite and various impulses without limit as to the direction.
By R. Harte (Sec. T.P.S)
---p.18. Charles B Collier, Keely's patent lawyer, writes as follows, concerning the difficulties attendant upon “the supposed duty” of his client's imparting his “secrets” as ordered by the Court to do so, some time since:---
If to-day, for the first time in your lives, you saw a harp attuned and being played upon, you would hardly expect, without considerable time and study, to be able to reproduce the harp, attune its strings in proper relation to each other, and to play upon it so to produce the harmonies which you had listened to. Mr. Keely's work is analogous ...
---p.22-23 Molecular vibration is thus seen to be Keely's legitimate field of research; but more than once has he had to tear down portions of the vibratory scaffolding which aided him in the building up of his edifice of philosophy; therefore, he is ever ready to admit that some of the present scaffolding may have to still be removed.....
“My system, in every part and detail, bot in the developing of this power and in every branch of its utilization, is based and founded on sympathetic vibration.....
His later experiments have been confined to another modification of the vibratory sympathy; and the size of the instrument used now, '88, for the same purpose is no larger than an old-fashioned silver watch, such as we see in Museum collections. The raising of a lever with an apparent uplifting expansive force of between 20 000 and 30 000 pounds to the square inch, the running of the engine, the firing of the cannon, are conducted without one ounce of pressure in any part of the apparatus, and without hteproduction or presence of what has been known as Keely's ether. The force is now transmitted along a wire (of platinum and sliver), and when the lever is lowered there is no exhaustion, into the atmosphere of the room, of any up-lifting vapor, as was always the case when ether was used in this experiment; nor is there any vapor imping upon the piston under the lever to raise it.
(Side Note from me: the force pounds of pressure, that are easily done without effort reminds me of the pistol crab snapping shut his claw to release the cavitation bubble that is the temperature of the sun's corona, so sonoluminesence basically is being employed in this device, which is the same in a sense to the friction heater or the friction water heater).
Mr. Keely has named this new modifcation of the one force in nature “Negative Attraction, “ which to the uninitiated does not suggest as much as it would had he called it “Exploded Humbug.”
The two forms of force which he has been experimenting with, (magnetics obviously) and the phenomena attending them, are the very antithesis of each other. (positive and negative poles obviously).
many of histories greatest inventors started out as "crackpots" . It's there crackpot out if the box creativity that leads to new science and technoligies. There are millions of highly trained ribotuc minded scientist that know every physics rule and scientific law that never invent anything. He may never amount to anything but its crackpot brains that push our knowledge forward.

John Searl is a fraud, crackpot, crank.
He has not invented anything of consequence. At one time, he tried to show off his anti-gravity "levity disc." Not sure if this was intended as a pun directed towards all his believers or just poor choice in a name.
n. pl. lev·i·ties
1. Lightness of manner or speech, especially when inappropriate; frivolity.
2. Inconstancy; changeableness.
Number 1 & 2 describe Searl perfectly. And the only time he ever discovered free energy is when he stole it from the grid.
He has been discussed plenty on ATS, all the links you've posted are just rehashed stories. Did we really need another thread about this guy?edit on 27-3-2011 by boncho because: (no reason given)
