Honestly this is nothing new. Well, at least the idea is nothing new. I don't know if anyone has ever built one, although if so, it was probably the
military who did it first. The military however usually focuses on things that can be weaponized, so they probably had no interest in this, otherwise
we probably would have heard of it by now. I just don't see this being used as or in any kind of weapon. Unfortunately what usually happens with the
US military, or government agencies, is that they somehow get the rights to patented technologies, whether they buy them, or who knows what else, and
then they either develop the ideas or they don't.
If they don't, that is the last you hear about them. Oil companies have probably done this in the past as well towards products that will hurt their
profits. They simply get the rights so no one else can build the things, despite the fact that the technology would better humanity as a whole. The
benefits are endless. It just is not right, and I would hate to see what they would do to someone who would not sell them the patents to new
technologies that would kill their bottom line. When there is potentially billions of dollars in lost revenue at stake, murder suddenly becomes
And then there are the technologies that would not necessarily hurt profits, but rather would not produce such large profits. This is the other
motivation for buying and then shelving certain newly develop technologies and ideas. Just sickening. This idea however is something that would work.
As I said, it has been known for probably decades. It is actually quite astonishing the level of advanced technologies that were developed in the
decade after WWII. I mean really advanced stuff, even weapons like jet fighters and propulsion systems. If you look back, I am talking a giant leap
from pre WWII, and even WWII era tech, to stuff that was not even feasible at those times.
And then, developments slowed to a trickle. There were still many developments, but they should have come at a much quicker rate, as that is usually
the way technology progresses. It is more exponential than linear from what I understand and have seen. So this could be more proof of the government
and corporations buying up and hiding technologies that either could be weaponized or that could benefit mankind but hurt their pocketbooks.
So let's say this kid rediscovered this technology. Who has the patent for it? Can it be patented? I'm sure it can. So will he sell out to those who
come offering him millions for the patent, with the condition that he keep his mouth shut, which I can assure you will be part of the deal? This must
not be patentable as a technology, because it would have been done already. Once a prototype is built however, then it will likely be patentable.
There is nothing to stop this from being developed except large corporations, the government, and funding. I really do not think funding should be a
problem for this person, considering the notoriety he has received thus far.
