With respect, I think using the word "impossible" is nonsense, because less than a century ago the idea of us communicating in the way that we are
right now would have been described as impossible. The notion of two particles acting identically across distances when one is affected by outside
force would have been called impossible not too long ago too. The notion of converting wind, tidal and solar energy into usable power would also have
been considered impossible depending how far back you go...
The biggest problem I have with some of the most incredible geniuses on the planet throughout history is that despite their obvious genius, they still
didn't understand that there is no such thing as "rules" and "impossible".
Just using logic, intelligence and our own history, these enlightened minds should have come to the plausible conclusion that there are no limits
outside of Human understanding and capacity - anything is possible, and rules are made to be broken.
Having said all of that, I still have not seen an example of gravitational force being converted into usable electrical energy. It seems logical that
there must be a way to do it, after all we can convert solar energy, tidal and wind into power, so why can't we do the same with gravity? It is a
natural force like any other, and although it might not be considered in the same group of energy producing processes it seems perfectly reasonable
that there SHOULD be a way to harness it.
But, these methods only show me how to convert gravitational energy into a reverse movement, and this is not seemingly able to be harnessed for use,
without it being destroyed - meaning that the energy put into it is taken out, but no more is produced.
