That man is a trickster and he knows it. I was hoping someone would bring up something like this, as it's a PERFECT example of how these free energy
proponents are horribly misleading people who are ignorant of how this stuff works. No, I'm not going to just bash it and move on, I will explain it
to you, so you can see this man, just like everyone else, is accomplishing absolutely nothing.
He says the power output is greater than the power input. OK. But what does that mean? It doesn't mean what you think it does. He is measuring
wattage, wattage is a measurement of power. Power and energy are NOT the same things. He is not generating energy, he is generating power. May seem
like I'm arguing semantics here, but I'm not. Power and energy are not the same thing at all. There is a key difference that you must understand in
order to understand how these people are tricking and misleading others.
Power (measured in watts) is energy over time. A simple way to think about this is by comparing a high power laser to a standard household light
A light bulb can put out the same amount of ENERGY as the laser can, but it takes longer to do it, so it has less POWER. The laser on the other hand,
puts out the exact same amount of ENERGY, but in a much shorter time, so it has more POWER.
So, when this man says that he has a circuit that puts out more POWER than it consumes, that means absolutely nothing. If he had a circuit that puts
out more ENERGY than it consumes, then YES he actually has an over unity device. But he isn't, so he doesn't. Do you understand now?
The language used by these free energy people is downright trickery. Because all of their devices may very well have a larger POWER output than input,
but not a higher ENERGY output than input. That is the key difference, and this is the method in which all these people can mislead you into believing
that they are actually accomplishing something, when they are not.
Further proof is the fact he says he is using a toroid in his circuit. This is nothing new. Stereo receivers have been doing this forever. It's a
power supply. It increases power (watts) which is the only thing this man is doing. He is NOT creating, capturing, harvesting, etc ENERGY. That is the
KEY difference here, which proves these people are a fraud, and why anyone who knows anything about how electronics, electricity, and energy work
don't even pay attention to them.
Energy is measured in Joules, or (x)watt-hours. That is not how he is measuring his circuit, because he is not measuring energy, he is measuring
power, which proves he is NOT generating ENERGY which is what we are trying to get. Power is easy to make, energy isn't only hard to make, it's
impossible. Which is why he isn't doing it.
There should be no need for the batteries if he is somehow generating energy. No capacitors either. He should be able to remove the batteries, and the
LED will stay illuminated. Wonder why he didn't do that? Because then even the people that don't know about this kind of thing will be able to tell he
is a fraud. But the fact he doesn't do that should give you a hint anyway.
