- These self-proclaimed "myth busters" should
themselves be busted off television for incredibly bad science. And for
assisting the oil companies to increase their iron grip on everyone.
- The bad Abbott and Costello pair performed narrow minded,
non-scientific testing on what they labeled as "free energy."
This is also known as "zero point energy." In a recent episode
which aired on 2/20/05, they built their own incarnations (read that as
"abortions") of well known devices. These devices were the heat
driven wheel and the Bedini machine. As one would expect, the charlatans
at "Myth Busters" did some VERY bad replications of both of these
- Their first feeble minded attempt to replicated the Bedini
machine. In NO WAY did it remotely resemble what John Bedini had designed
and built. A Bedini machine uses control circuits, massive coils and back-EMF
to charge a battery which powers the machine. An "expert" was
on hand from a local university to *help* them build it. Oscilloscopes,
ammeters or voltmeters were not visible. No adjustments or measurements
were even attempted. They just turned it on, watched it for a few seconds
as the battery ran down, declared it myth and began to ridicule free energy
- Construction techniques used were a disaster. A motor
driven cam operating a microswitch was controlling AUTOMOTIVE ENGINE STARTING
RELAYS. One would be fortunate to make these power relays operate at 5
times/second. It is physically impossible for these relays to function
any faster. Auto starting relays themselves require up to 12 watts of power
themselves. There are far more efficient solid state switching devices
to accomplish this. Fast switching is required to create a sufficient number
of back-EMF pulses to recharge the battery.
- This episode looked like a scene from a redneck trade-school.
The closeups of the constructed device clearly showed no working knowledge
of magnetics, as the small thick coils did not even contain an iron core.
Only at shortwave radio frequencies will a coil of wire not require an
iron core. The Bedini machine used massive iron or steel cores in it's
construction according to photos of it that were online for years. Construction
of the device used on the show, had almost no resemblance to the machine
John Bedini had built. But of course, the "mythbusters" know
how to build everything...as long as you don't take their acetylene torches
- The show's "other" attempt involved duplicating
the heat wheel. Without getting into construction details, their attempt
at duplicating the already proven technology was also wrong according to
pictures and written accounts I've read of working heat wheels. And these
date back at least 10 years. The real working wheels used small propane
cylinders, like the kind used on hand propane torches or portable stoves
and lanterns. NOT 20 pound RV tanks, mounted radially from the center.
No attempt was made to change or adjust fluid volumes, check temperatures
or even discuss what their working fluid being used is.
- Not one instrument was to be seen anywhere. Their feeble
attempt worked, albeit very slower than the second hand on a clock. If
they had constructed a replica FIRST of a working wheel, the results would
have been far better. Adam (who could be a real life Curly Howard in disguise)
took a serious look at the camera for a few seconds, demanding no one send
him emails about his work. Who would waste their time doing so ? When it
didn't appear to be a feasible concept, like Bedini's machine they immediately
ridiculed and condemned it. A large heat wheel may rotate slowly, but it
has great TORQUE that can be geared up for useful work. This too, was never
considered as a torrent of ridicule on free energy systems was unleashed.
Oil companies must have been satisified, especially if they paid thousands
for this discrediting stunt.
- In both of the above cases, no attempt was made to duplicate
a working model first. Instead, apparently they felt "they knew better"
about how it should be constructed. Those familiar with over-unity devices
know quite well that construction IS extremely critical for a working device
to function. And often there are construction parameters that may not appear
to make sense to the novice, yet must be followed for the device to operate.
Just like your car engine - if everything isn't close to perfect and within
a certain narrow range of parameters, it will not start or stay running.
- MORE DRAMA
- A ceiling fan was used to test another myth that jumping
into a ceiling fan could be fatal. A head and shoulders dummy was constructed,
mostly from ballistics gelatin. Never mind that the gel is designed to
test the stopping power of bullets, and no ceiling fans. You would think
the common sense alarm would be blaring loud enough to be heard in the
next state when they were building this. Apparently all were deaf to it.
And as expected, nothing really happened when the dummy was moved into
the path of a home fan blade. That was the myth they were testing. A test
using a commercial ceiling fan, such as the fast spinning white fans often
seen in warehouses, stores and restaurants did somewhat more damage to
the (wrong) dummy. But the neck still was not broken. But this wasn't enough
to disprove the domestic myth of jumping on a bed into a fan.
- When the two tests could not successfully decapitate
or break the neck of their simulated human head, they were not satisified.
So the "experts" and their shop slaves constructed their own
ceiling fan...with a 3HP gasoline lawnmower engine attached to custom bare
steel blades, complete with grinder sharpened edges. When it chopped off
the dummy's head (big surprise ?) they all rejoiced as though they captured
a living bigfoot.
- Truly a new low has been reached by all.
- The real dummy wasn't used on the ceiling fan.
- No, it was standing on the ground, watching the foolishness
taking place above and laughing hysterically. He knows who he is.
- We should all be grateful that neither of these guys
(or their shop slaves) were around in Edison's or Tesla's time. If they
were, you would be reading this about 2 months later, on a typewriter written
report in a magazine or newspaper. And by kerosene lantern. I can just
see these hyper-coffee people trying to build something as delicate as
a light bulb...using an acetylene torch to connect the filament ends to
the stem wires.
- Having followed free energy research for years using
publicly available results, there have been POSITIVE results obtained by
some researchers. When these devices function, two things have commonly
happened - weight is lost, and the device becomes colder as the load is
increased. This known as "negative energy" because the effects
of it are the opposite of normal electricity. Although it must be said
that many free energy devices have not passed scrutiny, there are others
which have passed proof of concept AND scientific scrutiny. The Floyd Sweet
VTA is one of the most famous. In front of witnesses in a space of just
4" x 4" x 6", 3,000 watts of power was produced. It was
tested using a bank of thirty 100 watt light bulbs. It also lost 89% of
it's weight when loaded at 3,000 watts. It was believed to be extracting
it from zero point.
- Other devices have efficiently broken down water into
hydrogen and oxygen, allow combustion to release more energy that required
to separate the water. Another device are magnetic motors being manufactured
in Japan, which use permanent magnets to generate rotation and electricity.
It may be found over time the magnets will weaken and the device will lose
energy. But until one of these can be tested in a laboratory in the USA,
we will not know.
- There are many other devices which can tap into zero
point energy we cannot cover here. Some of these have been slapped with
a secrecy order by our loving government, which loves oil more than it's
own people. The oil people are scared silly by the free energy community
and watch it carefully. Oil is what controls ALL of the entire planet,
and you can assured they won't give up that control peacefully. The world
economy is based on it. Cheney muttered in a press conference more than
two years ago, that "the war in Iraq is about oil, and always has
- FREE ENERGY WORK CAN RESULT IN ILLNESS
- I've been concerned for years, that true working devices
draw energy from EVERYTHING around them...including people.No one ever
talks about the threat to human life. Something like the effects of radium
on the Curies, seems to be repeated. One odd thing that seems to frequently
happen to free energy researchers, is a serious degradation in their health.
Floyd Sweet, a Canadian took ill soon after working his device. The author
has learned that a researcher working with a hydrogen closed cycle engine
also became quite ill.
- If a working device is possible, then perhaps such a
device would need to operate in an isolated spot away from where people
normally are present. Similar to how a heat pump or airconditioner sits
on a slab in a backyard.
- Zero point devices may draw from the life force which
all human beings have, making them quite ill. The numerous illnesses of
many researches (too numerous to cover here) and so-called "accidents"
of those actively involved in such research cannot be discounted. Dr. Mallove,
who died last year is one of the latest in a long line. His pseudo "accident"
in his own backyard was his fate.
- Programs such as "Mythbusters" only help increase
big oil's grip, by ridiculing any technology that threatens their grip
on all of us. The government arrogantly believes that any related technology
is too good for the masses, and only *they* should have access to it. Something
to think about this week, when you are standing at the pump watching the
blurred spinning numbers pull your hard earned money out of your pocket
and into the coffers of a giga-corporation.
