WHAT'S NEW (top)
  Our shop-lab in Creston is now becoming operational. The move has been slow as little attention could be spared for the shop setup.   Check out the updated 'news' page for George Wiseman's presentation schedule.   =====================================================
  This subject is controversial. It is NOT a subject that I usually talk about because I don't like to waste time on negative. But this list showed a huge interest in the subject so I'm writing this brief-as-possible statement to hopefully help some innovators that are at risk and to give you something to think about.   Some people KNOW there is suppression either from personal experience or from research. I have boxes containing the research (on suppression) that backs up this article, supporting my reasoning. I have personal experience with suppression and I have peers that have been suppressed.   Most people don't know what to think, because they'd like to believe that the corporations and governments that control their lives have their best interests at heart. There is also a significant tendency to ignore (or deny) unpleasant facts that that are out of our control.   Personally I am not in a position to deny the existence of 'vested interest' suppression. The technologies I work on are typical of the kind that are suppressed (fuel savers and free energy). Thus I have studied why the suppression exists and what the typical suppression techniques are. This allows me to walk a tightrope between getting the suppressed knowledge made public and becoming a suppression statistic.   First, understand that I believe there are a small group of people that control most of the world's corporations and governments. I do not expect you to believe this, just to understand that I do. These people are actually who I label as the ultimate 'vested interest'. I believe their 'hands' are the corporations and governments that we see doing the suppression.   Second, I also believe that these people compete amongst themselves to gain control of the world. I believe that gaining power is their motive in life. While this may not be true, this reasoning fits the facts as I see them.   Third, I believe that corporations and governments behave very much like people do. When their income source is threatened they act to preserve it.   The energy industry in North America alone (about 30% of the world's energy use) is worth over 6 trillion dollars in income every year.   The 'vested interest' that receives this income would frown if a 'free energy' device was marketed that did not bring them in money. This would directly affect their income and they take steps to see that it does not happen.   As for 'fuel savers', I have a quote from Brad Dennis (an internationally renowned combustion engineer) that "For every cent increase for a gallon of gas, the oil companies receive 50 Billion dollars annual income." Therefore, a fuel saver capable of a modest 10% economy gain would remove billions of dollars from their pockets.   Some examples of technology suppressed by 'energy vested interest' are listed below:   The Magnifying Transmitter built by Nikola Tesla: Designed to gather 'free energy' and transmit it worldwide. It was suppressed by JP Morgan who was financing the construction. Mr. Morgan was building the tower to have a worldwide communication network. When Mr. Tesla told him that it would also allow anyone in the world to use the energy for their own power, Mr. Morgan shut it down. Mr. Morgan was one of those original 'vested interest' I told you about. Mr. Morgan had invested huge amounts in coal and oil and very much liked turning those investments into money by turning them into electricity and metering the electricity out to the public. He did not take kindly to the idea of just 'giving away' his power to the world. Nikola Tesla locked himself in the incomplete tower and turned it on. For three days the tower emitted lightning strokes estimated over 100 miles long. The city officials finally cut the (underground) power cord to shut it down.   More than anyone else, I credit Nikola Tesla as the father of our current civilization. We could not exist as we do without the innovations HE discovered and implemented. Alternating Current, Induction Motors, Transformers, Radio, Incandescent, Neon and Florescent lighting, the 'Star Wars' technology, weather control and robotics are just a few of the technologies (many erroneously credited to others) that you see and touch everyday. He tried to bring us unlimited free power. He wrote articles about how energy and civilization combine. He has been wiped from our history books for his trouble. He died an old man, isolated and frustrated.   The Edwin Gray motor: In my file on this device, I have a testimonial from a man I know personally, that saw a test in California (as a demonstration for his brokerage firm) that for 25 watts input (from batteries) they got over 5,000 watts output on a dynometer. This man is well qualified to observe and report on such a test. The Federal Trade Commission shut him down and I understand that the US Military took him away to work on secret projects.   The Pogue Carburetor: Well documented and tested by several independent corporations demonstrating over 200 miles per gallon. I include it under 'energy vested interest' suppression because it makes no sense to me that automotive companies wouldn't want to get better mileage. My reasoning is that automobile companies (and even governments) are controlled by the energy 'vested interest'. I understand that the Pogue Carburetor was confiscated as a military secret and installed on tanks in Africa; it being the biggest reason for the allied victory there. Pogue was given an oil filter factory that supported him till his death (of old age).   The Moray device: Well documented and demonstrated, produced 50,000 watts of power from a small box that contained no moving parts using an antenna and a ground to draw the power from the environment. One of the funniest stories I have is about a 'scientist' that officially denied that it could be working, that then started talking about the wondrous device to his seatmate on the way home; the seatmate was Mr. Moray's lawyer. Mr. Moray's innovation was smashed by a 'spy' and he was unable to get funding to build another. He died of old age.   I could go on and on listing only devices that have been well documented to either dramatically save energy or produce 'free energy' (energy that is not metered to you by 'vested interest'). I do not have room or time to tell all the stories here. There have been many books written on the suppression of these innovations and even they don't tell the whole story.   Another point is that corporations, like people, have an 'inertia', a tendency to keep doing things the way they always have because it is comfortable and do not change things very quickly even if they intend to in the future.   An example of 'automotive vested interest' suppression is the Tucker automobile. It would have cost the car companies billions of dollars to catch up with the innovations in the Tucker in 1946. They suppressed him and they STILL, over five decades later, have not implemented all the safety features that the Tucker had. Volvo has come the closest. Volvo cars are designed safe because their designers wife was killed in an automobile accident and he decided to design an automobile that would save lives. They looked like boxes (my wife won't ride in mine) and they have the world's record for least injuries in accidents. Volvo has recently been bought by Ford.     'Vested interest' likes to keep things as they are:   First, because they have 'vested interest' (often to the tune of billions, even trillions of dollars) that would be 'stranded' or lost if the technology changed.   Second, because they don't want to bother to change, even to technologies that would eventually make them more money.   Third, because often the change would not make them more money, the only 'advantage' being ecological or social.   Fourth, after all these years of suppression, it would be embarrassing if it truly got out that many internal combustion engines COULD go up to TEN times farther on a gallon of gasoline and that the technology to do so has existed for at least five decades. 200 miles-per-gallon for full sized automobiles is a fact, not fiction. I've done it and am writing a book to explain why and how; it will be titled 'High Mileage Secrets' and should be available next year.   Also, 'free energy' has existed for a long time. That's what the utilities package and meter to you (making it not-free to you). Home power is practical now in a lot of cases, using solar, wind, hydro, and thermal powerplants. Eagle-Research is 'out on the edge', looking for unconventional sources of free energy.   Please accept that my reasoning (correct or not) is that 'vested interest' has motive to suppress innovation and that they have done so for over a century.   So now we talk about the usual suppression techniques that I've discovered.   First is surveillance: There are numerous 'spy' agencies in the world; some agencies owned by corporations are bigger than those maintained by governments. These agents keep track of all innovation in certain categories. I offer a brief testimonial of a few of my experiences.   Generally surveillance on me has been been with phone taps and mail tracking. There are various ways to determine if your phone is tapped and I've consistently verified that mine have been. I even had the telephone company tell me that my line was tapped one time when I was having repairs done. As for the mail, I'll get back to that later.   The object of surveillance is to determine: 1) Does the inventor have anything? This is fairly easily determined because most of the stuff that my peers and I work on is nothing new to the 'vested interest', they already have this stuff. If it is determined that the inventor has something, a piece of something or the potential to develop something, then the surveillance continues.   Once it is determined that an inventor DOES have something, their entire lives are researched. This is used to determine the most effective way to make the inventor ineffective.   Most of the time, nothing needs to be done, as most inventors have very poor management, people and marketing skills. They also are wanting to profit from their innovation and therefore tend to keep it secret, to the point of paranoia. Add this to the very real greed of most investors (causing the paranoia) and you have a mix that usually kills the innovation without intervention. I've personally seen this happen dozens of times. That's one of the reasons I've developed my 'patent free' philosophy.   Another advantage of the surveillance is that 'vested interest' has full documentation of the innovation to add to their library. They don't care about patents, they are suppressing the technology anyway. Another advantage (from their side) is that they have the technology for themselves if they need it in the future.   I have had 'feelers' approach me, but my philosophies, policies and goals are a matter of public record. I do not patent my innovations, accept government grants or assign my innovations to anyone exclusively. I DO distribute plans for my innovations as soon as I can, to get them into the public domain (so NO ONE can patent them) and I do encourage anyone who wants to start independent manufacturing my innovations to do so. I also help others develop THEIR own innovations and encourage them to make their innovations public too.   If suppression needs to be done, there is a determination of whether the direct approach of buying out or threat of bodily harm will work. This means approaching the innovator, usually through an 'front'. I have personally met some of these individuals that have 'sold out'. They feel a little ashamed, but they live OK.   If 'vested interest' determines that buyout or threat won't work, (or was rejected) then actual interference in the innovator's life starts. The idea is to find a 'weak point' in the inventors life that will prevent him/her from actually getting the innovation into the market, using the least amount of force. This may be something simple, like tying up time on some other project, a government investigation, slight accidents, 'lost' items, etc.   I have personally been through seven government investigations of my business, by agencies in the USA and Canada. None of the investigations resulted in action beyond the 'investigation' stage. In the USA the agencies were kind enough to send me a form letter stating that; although they don't endorse my product or service, they find no fault with my treatment of my customers. In Canada my inquiries for a letter resolving the issue resulted in no further response (they just ignore me). All of the investigations were poorly done, seemingly probes for information gathering or to 'scare' me enough to make me stop. There was no legal reason for the investigations in the first place, not ONE of the 60,000 users of my technology had complained.   If the innovator continues to be effective in developing the innovation, then the pressure starts to be more serious, like; major 'accidents', theft, fire, major government investigations, cut off of financial ability, legal hassles resulting in fines and jail time, etc.   If the innovation actually makes it to the market, the company selling the innovation is attacked and to date, every innovation (that threatens large vested interest) has been stopped successfully at this level. All my above examples (Tesla, Gray, Moray, etc.) made it to this level.   In my case, the 'weak point' chosen was based on the fact that I am sending my product through the mail. A series of events coincided in my life to allow 'them' to bankrupt my business. We had started to sell HyCO 2A 'cold vapor' fuel systems (the actual kits) and they were selling very well ($50,000 per month).   The suppression was simply to stop delivering my HyCO 2A kits to my customers (in both the USA and Canada at the SAME TIME) and to stop delivering (some of) my customers orders to me. It was my policy that if an order was not delivered to a customer within four weeks, that my order department would automatically reship the order. This is because the postal service randomly looses about 1% of my mail.   I was away on a trip and when I got back, we started getting calls that the SECOND orders had not arrived either. Now I had already figured out that something was strange because every order over a certain weight and size was not being delivered. My local postmaster could tell me nothing but suggested that I insure the packages. I did not like to do the additional expense, but on my honor I needed to somehow get the orders to my customers.   About this time I found out about the customer orders that were not being delivered to me. Customers were calling to ask about their orders, and we had never received the order. Since we had never received their money we simply informed them that we could not ship their order.   The THIRD shipments did not arrive either. I waited the 90 days required by the post office and took my insurance forms back into my postmaster to collect the insurance money. I had insured these parcels for enough to recover my losses from the previous 'lost' mail too. It seems that the usual procedure in an insurance claim is to send the customer a letter asking if they had received the parcel. Without exception, every one of the parcels (the third insured shipment) was delivered to my customers three days before the letter arrived. Thus my insurance claim was invalid.   My customers (all that actually paid money) did receive their HyCO 2A kits, over 160 days after their initial order. I had lost over $150,000 and was deeply in debt. It took me seven years to recover but now I'm back, wiser and with improved technology. The 'rest' gave me time to continue research.   And just a note to those people that think you can 'sue' in a case like this. Who do you really sue? Who was powerful enough to coordinate two nation's postal systems? How much time and energy do you think it would soak up? They would LOVE it if I sued. So to those people who think such a thing is worth the effort, YOU do it. You pay all the costs and take all the time. I'll let you keep any rewards you gain on my behalf. In the meantime, I'll just get on with my research and my life. Not to say I won't fight, I just choose my battles.   I have discovered that the 'vested interest' doesn't mind too much if I'm just selling literature (I'm getting only surveillance and minor suppression); it's when I start selling the PRODUCT that I got 'stepped up' suppression. This is why you see little actual product advertised by my business. This is also why you see that I no longer guarantee delivery of your order unless you pay for the 'traceable' option with your order.   All of this means little, however, because I still have plenty of 'weak points' that can be touched by 'vested interest' at any time; everybody does. That is why it is important for you to buy my literature now (if it interests you) because I cannot guarantee to be in business later. It is the very nature of my business that I will eventually face suppression again, perhaps permanently. In the meantime, my research won't be lost like Tesla, Gray, Moray and many others. Other researchers can continue to build on my achievements because I've made them PUBLIC.   In addition to the direct suppression of innovation, there is the concept of 'public suppression'. This is a 'catchall' program that discredits innovation so that even if an innovator really has something, the public really doesn't believe it.   It seems that (in the USA and Canada at least) if you sell 'fuel savers' or if you have a 'free energy' device; you are automatically considered a fraud by authorities, both civilian and government. This is because of very effective 'propaganda' techniques.    'Vested interest' LIKES fuel saver frauds (or free energy frauds), this becomes part of their 'public suppression' strategy. If they allow the frauds some room to work, then the frauds disappoint a lot of people. Eventually they prosecute the frauds and confiscate the money they made. This makes them 'hero's' to the public because they 'got' the bad guys.   An example of how this can hurt the legitimate fuel saver companies occurred to me. I had several distributors selling the Carburetor Enhancer; in my opinion the best fuel saving technology (for the money) that has ever been marketed. In Canada, a 'consumer protection' program called MarketPlace 'investigated' fuel savers for one of it's episodes. It featured one fuel saver and mentioned four others. It showed their independent testing and investigation into their claims. It showed that they were frauds. My Distributor's sales of Carburetor Enhancers went to near zero overnight and they had to go out of business. I was diversified so although it hurt, I did not go out of business.   The interesting thing was that one of my customers discovered that MarketPlace had investigated my Carburetor Enhancer and that MarketPlace testing proved it worked even better than my 'claims'. When I called MarketPlace to find out about this, I was informed that they were in the 'consumer protection' business and did not mention products that work. While this makes sense on the surface; let's look at the underside.   If they had at least mentioned that there were fuel savers that had passed their tests, it wouldn't have hurt sales so badly and would not have propagated the assumption that ALL fuel savers do not work. Therefore I am left with the conclusion that they MEANT to have the public assume that all fuel savers were frauds.   I also would think that if MarketPlace had taken the trouble to investigate my technology, if they truly had the public's interest in mind, they could have at least sent me a letter stating the results of their independent tests.   Because of the prestige of this particular program, if they had mentioned that the Carburetor Enhancer worked, I figure I would have received at least a million dollars in sales overnight.   In addition to the outright frauds, some fuel savers work only marginally or only on a few vehicles and disappoint customers almost as much as the frauds. In this same area are the fuel savers that have sound principles but have components that fail and cause the customer grief. This is the kind of thing I will be reporting about on my website; I intend to have a 'Current Economizers' section by Fall.   So fuel saver frauds do exist and are used to best advantage by 'vested interest'.   The next 'public suppression' technique is so widespread that it scares me the most. In several ways 'vested interest' controls the education system so that people are taught exactly what 'vested interest' wants them to know. I find examples of this throughout the education system. The scary thing is that this technique is suppressing the very innovative minds that we need to make this civilization prosper. Students are being taught WHAT to think, not HOW to think. And standards for education are being lowered everyday.   My personal experience is an example. First a bit of biography; I am a certified Automotive Technician with decades of experience. I am also well versed in many other trades I've needed to learn to be an inventor. When given a mechanical IQ test, I was off the scale. We were given five minutes to complete the test, I completed it in less than three minutes. No one had EVER completed the test, let alone with all the answers correct.   When I went to college for my automotive training, I went through the course three times faster than any of the other students and achieved the highest grade average of any mechanics student in the history of the college (before or since). Whenever I got less than 95% on a test, I took it to the instructor to find out why, because I really wanted to get it right. I managed to convince him that my answers were more correct than the test answers and in six cases he changed the test answers to match mine. This brief biography was to let you know I have some training and aptitude to make the next statements.   The principles that mechanics need to know to make vehicles double their gas mileage (let alone ten times the mileage) are NOT taught to them in any school or literature. They are taught EXACTLY what the vehicle manufacturers want them to be taught. I can say this because I have done far more study in fuel systems than most mechanics AND I have studied combustion engineering, thermodynamics, chemistry and physics (which most mechanics don't). I have discovered that the OLD mechanics manuals contained MORE information than the current ones. The OLD books gave me the clues I needed to find the facts that 'vested interest' does NOT want mechanics (or you) to know.   If mechanics do not know this stuff, or even know that there is stuff that they do not know; then they can 'truthfully' answer their customers that fuel savers must be frauds because nothing in their training gives them any idea that there could be better ways that are not used.   The Patent Office is the last method used by vested interest for suppression that I'll mention here because this article is getting way too long.   One of the very best innovation suppression tools used by the 'vested interest' is the patent office. This archaic Government agency is the direct cause of most suppression today.   First, the very nature of patents insists that the innovation is kept secret or the patent is invalid. This uses greed of the innovator to keep the technology from public view. Most of the time this is where the innovation ends, either because the innovator could not complete (or even start) the patent process or because business pitfalls tripped them up.   Second, The patent process sucks up huge amounts of innovators time and money; while they make no money from the innovation and while they are not improving the innovation. Then, (most of the time) once they receive their patent, the patent is worthless; they are not going to be allowed to market the device anyway. And if there is a court case, the innovator gets no financial or legal assistance from the government.   I have found over 3,000 patented fuel savers so far, not ONE of which is on the market. And for every one that actually makes it through the patent process, there are dozens that don't. Do you think ALL these innovators are so incompetent that not even ONE makes it to the market?   Third, the patent office cooperates with the government to directly suppress innovation that is labeled a risk to 'national security'. This includes certain free energy and fuel savers because they feel that the economy would collapse. SECRECY ORDER (Title 35, United States Code (1952), sections 181-188)   I say whoop-tee-do; there have been several studies done that conclusively show that free energy, while causing a temporary economic restructuring, would ultimately create a higher standard of living for the entire world. Since that 'restructuring' would mean a power and control loss for 'vested interest' I assume that is the real reason behind the policy.   Fourth, The patent office can (and does) pick and choose which patents it will grant. There is no law compelling them to accept any patent. They have denied patents for free energy machines. This alone has caused suppression of these devices because the innovator is (for decades) keeping the innovation secret while continuing to try to get a patent.   This policy makes absolutely no sense if you look at the patent office mandate. They are there to make sure the patent innovation is presented in a way understandable to those 'skilled-in-the-art' and as a public repository for the patents. That's it!!!!!!   Why would they care if the innovation works or not? As a matter of fact most of them DO NOT work (I have proved that many times)!!!! The market should be the determiner if the innovation is viable, not a government file clerk.   Fifth, 'vested interest' subscribes to a service offered by the patent office that sends a copy of any new innovation to them (anyone can subscribe). This tells 'vested interest' that the innovator seriously thinks there is something to their idea and that it is still secret. This makes suppression ridiculously simple.   Some fuel saver patents have an item that works, but the rest of the patent is garbage. These patents are allowed because it ties up technology safely. No suppression effort is needed in these cases because the device will not work as patented anyway, any commercial attempt will fail.   If the patent will work, or has a feature that 'vested interest' wants direct control of; then a buyout is attempted. If that fails, other means are used to 'neutralize' the innovation. These means are seldom pleasant to the innovator.   Here is a VERY brief sample listing of buyouts (they call it "assignee") I've chosen at random from my files, for example purposes:   First there are the logical ones, the oil companies. You'd think that they would not want fuel savers on the market, till you find out that they actually make more money on petroleum making it into paint and plastic than they do when using it as fuel.   Patent # 4085721, Assignee, Exxon Patent # 3996907, Assignee, Ethyl Corp Patent # 3763838, Assignee, Shell Oil Co.   Then there are the vehicle manufacturers. Now why would they not want their vehicles to make more mileage? I'd think it would help sales.   Patent # 4085719, Assignee, Ford Motor Co. Patent # 3996906, Assignee, General Motors Patent # 5163410, Assignee, Mercedes-Benz   Then there are the companies that aren't in the fuel business at all; or so we would have thought.   Patent # 4178897, Assignee, Omnewtronics Patent # 4448176, Assignee, Eaton Corporation Patent # 4279234, Assignee, Texas Instruments Incorporated   Then there are government assignees; are they wanting to give these to the public? Remember, as much as 70 cents of every dollar spent on gasoline goes to the government in taxes. This makes government a 'vested interest' and a poor watchdog (in my opinion) to make sure vehicles get better mileage.   Patent # 3640256, Assignee, NASA Patent # 4167165, Assignee, The Secretary of State for Industry in Her Britannic Majesty's Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland   Then there are the fun ones:)))) These entities are assigned 'codes' so that their identity is not readily apparent; for simplification of paperwork, of course. I leave it as an exercise for you to discover the identity behind the 'assignee code' :))))   Patent # 5297530 'Heating Device for injected fuel for internal combustion engine'. Assignee code, 404330-94   Patent # 5226400 'Device for conversion of liquid fuel into fuel vapor and microscopic liquid droplets'. Assignee code, 372980-93   Don't bother asking ME why these and thousands of other innovations are not on the market. Ask the assignees.   There is much more suppression information but I've touched on enough to give a general conception to the problems. As I see it, the problems are caused by greed and propagated by greed. Any successful solution will have to by-pass greed in some way. My solution is to freely give the innovation to the public. This seems to be working for me; I've been a self-employed inventor since 1987 and am now world-known in several technologies.   The saddest thing about suppression is that it is directly hurting each one of us. If you look at the USA statistics on GNP (Gross National Product) and energy generation capability, you will see that the GNP rises in a direct relationship to energy generation capability. GNP has a direct relationship on our standard of living.   If we could have plentiful inexpensive power, we can not even imagine the wonders we could achieve. Anyone could work on the projects of their dreams without worry of warmth, clothing or starvation. We could become a highly educated, principled, interdependent civilization that could spread out into the Universe. Personal development and helping others grow would become more important than money and power.   Such is the stuff of MY dreams.   =====================================================
  Well, it seems that at least one of my predictions came true :))) The oil industry is raising gas prices. Obviously it has nothing to do with the refinery explosions and the thousands of non-Y2K compliant chips; they're just being greedy :))))   In any case, here is a good example of why it is good to be self-reliant. If you are making your own fuel or you have increased the economy of your fuel system, then fuel prices mean little to you.   Note that a rise in fuel costs will be followed by a rise in the cost of products and services. Keep your home storage of food and products up to date.   =====================================================
  We have started the building of our prototype ER4000 Water Torch. This is the world's most efficient and practical commercial machine. It has many features that make it fit seamlessly into applications that currently use various industrial gasses.   We have been operating our Water Torches on metal cutting tables with excellent results and can now do direct replacement of Acetylene, MAPP gas, and Propane with Brown's Gas for a superior, faster cut at a fraction of the operating cost. In my shop, I cut my 'torch gas' cost 98%.   Brown's Gas is totally environmentally friendly too, quiet in operation, producing no carbon monoxide and burning none of the oxygen in the room.   THE BEST IN THE WORLD JUST GOT TWICE AS GOOD.   We're now able to produce 2000 liters per hour in a machine the same size and weight of an ER1150 Water Torch; which was already the lightest, most efficient Water Torch in the world. The electrical requirements will also stay the same. This will be our new ER2000 Water Torch.   We will still support our ER1150 Water Torches as long as they last. Should be 20 years or so :))))   =====================================================
  Dear readers, I appreciate the emails sent to me. I apologize if you do not see your email here. To keep the newsletter shorter, I select those that best represent the emails I get.   Here is an example story on suppression that I gather. I have not followed up on this story yet, I thought it'd be interesting to toss it out in this newsletter and see if anyone out there can track down a copy of the article. ----------- (story by Scott) "Contractor magazine was an industry publication for plumbing, heating and cooling contractors. I don't have copies, and no longer get the publication, as I am no longer a contractor. Tell the story as you see fit. As I remember, the guy discovered a way to extract enormous amounts of heat from a small amount of energy, apparently by passing an electric current through highly compressed freon. Shortly after the publication of his discovery he was killed by a "Taxicab" that hit him while he was standing on his front porch. The same day (or that same weekend) his shop burned to the ground along with all of his papers. Contractor magazine denied ever publishing the story, (even as I was looking at it while talking to them). Contractor magazine never provided additional copies of that issue, even though they were requested, and payment was tendered (cheques were never cashed). "   (story continues by Ian) "To fill in a little more detail... I believe the publication was sometime in the 80's. I believe the inventor lived in a small town in the midwest. When Scott told me the story some years ago he said the initial publication promised to follow up the story in future editions. When that did not happen he phoned the magazine and got the denial mentioned above. He couldn't track the inventor by phone at first and got the idea to call the librarian in his home town. She said she could put him in touch with the man's son. When Scott called the son said he could't talk then but would call back. Later when he called he said that at the time of Scott's call he had been on his way to his father's funeral and explained about the fire and the "taxicab" which had disappeared after the accident.   So George, if you are not familiar with this story and you have someone able to do some research the obvious followup would be to find a library with hard copies of Contractor magazine and locate the original article. I believe Scott said the inventor had claimed he could cut the cost of heating in half.   Good luck, Ian le Cheminant  --------------- It may be unnecessary to relate this point but I will do so regardless. At least you may find it of interest.   From Benjamin Franklin: the autobiography and other writings pg 239   "Franklin invented the Pennsylvania fireplace in 1739 or 1740. The stoves were manufactured by his friend Robert Grace, and were sold at first at the Philedelphia Post Office. The inventor was offered a patent, but refused on the grounds that, since we enjoy the benefits of the inventions of others, we ought to be generous with our own inventions."   I want to compare no man to Mr Franklin however it is noble that any man can find comparision with his principle.   Carl Jones  ---------------  I am getting ready to buy solar panels for my home this summer. I will also build a wind generator in the near future. Our home is already very energy efficient. What bothers me is that the technology on solar panels seems to have stopped. No wonder...since nearly all the major solar panel makers are owned by oil companies. BP and others. I would love to hear some list members comments on any new solar panel technologies that might double or triple the efficiency of current day solar panels.   We plan on selling back power to the utility after the system is up and running.   Dye Hawley  --------------- By the way, love your site, more than that, love your philosophies behind your site. Do you belive in patenting an idea for the pure purpose of preventing certain fearful/unscrupulous minorities from coveting/profiting from just such an idea ? Mark.   Mark, Check out my webpage that answers that answers that question.  http://www.eagle-research.com/nopatent/patfree.php    ---------------    Got some brief advice, if you like:   The US government has siezed over 3,500 patents which "threaten national security". There is a legal clause for this, and it's enforced. There are four general categories of siezed patents, I'll list them by frequency from big pile to short stack:   Weapons technology developed in the private sector   High-mileage carburetors (vaporizing, emulsifying and catalytic)   Energy patents (not necessarily overunity)   Chemicals (war toxins, explosives, etc)   If you submit a patent that the US government would like to seize, you will recieve a form letter informing you that if you basically so much as think about the idea again, you will be fined a maximum of $250,000 and imprisoned for (I think) a maximum of 20 years. Nobody's pocket change. There is a handful of Americans whose intellectual property has been abused in this fashion... if you can call 3,500 a handful. (In my opinion, any submission cool enough to threaten global equilibrium ought to be quietly rewarded for its potential... bought, not stifled. Such practice suffocates fabled American ingenuity.) I believe the full text of this unfortunate law is posted on the KeelyNet BBS.   If you really want to go the patent route, I suggest you divide your invention into pieces that you can individually patent. This way you gain protection from the feds who are none the wiser about the synergy of the whole. This also gets around "having to" claim overunity operation (or any red-flag claim of "high efficiency").   I would personally reccomend against waiting for a patent. If you want it as a backup, you can play the roulette. But don't wait around for it: I can pretty much guarantee someone's gonna beat you to the punch. O/U is probably going to appear in public very suddenly and without much warning... all the more suddenly to those who are sitting on a pair of arse cheeks.   I look at it this way: me and my money are gonna die someday. The work will live on as a foundation for change. Which, dare I ask, will be more important 100 years from now?   -Graham =====================================================
  June/2000 will feature Water as Fuel, giving you the latest updates on the research and results.   AUGUST/2000 was intended to feature Fuel Saving technology. We hoped our comprehensive upgrade to the fuel saver section of the website should be complete. If you know of fuel savers that you'd like to see evaluated, drop me an email: < >. Instead, we feature more free energy rumors and will feature fuel savers in a future edition.   October/2000 was to be skiped due to our planned trip to Australia but the trip got postponed till October/2001. This issue will be used to feature fuel savers, even though our website upgrade has not yet happened and it will be some time before it does happen because other projects are taking up our time. Sometimes you just don't get everything done and you go with what you've got. *****************************************************
