Is Free Energy for real? Or is it just a tantalizing dream kept alive by wishful thinking and the collective unconscious of mankind... the figment of the imaginations of totally mad scientists.... or as cynics and skeptics proclaim, an easy mark for the unmitigated greed of charlatans and con artists looking for the quick buck.
To facilitate an intelligent dialogue on the subject of free energy we've assembled a collection of websites and videos, both pro and con. We invite you, using an inquiring but discerning mind, to carefully examine these documents and decide for your self "the truth" of Free Energy. You may be surprised at your conclusions.
Zero Point and Free Energy Proponents
"....If we could produce electric effects of the required quality, this whole planet and the conditions of existence on it could be transformed. The sun raises the water of the oceans and winds drive it to distant regions where it remains in state of most delicate balance. If it were in our power to upset it when and wherever desired, this mighty life-sustaining stream could be at will controlled. We could irrigate arid deserts, create lakes and rivers and provide motive power in unlimited amount. This would be the most efficient way of harnessing the sun to the uses of man...."Nikola Tesla
"....It is difficult to imagine a more profound reversal of scientific fortunes than what has been emerging in the "cold fusion" field. One of the most disputed anomalies in the history of science is inexorably heading toward acceptance by the scientific community.'' Dr. Eugene Mallove
The Suppression of Free Energy

"Electric power is everywhere present in unlimited quantities and can drive the world's machinery without the need of coal, oil, gas, or any other of the common fuels." Nikola Tesla Nikola Tesla "Tesla believed in an all-pervading ether. He felt the ether was always in motion, that this motion was the basis of electricity, and ascribed all electric and magnetic phenomena to electrostatic molecular forces.... .When asked how he was able to bring through so many ideas, he replied that he simply started with a strong desire to invent a particular thing. After weeks, months or years of holding the idea and possible solutions in his head, eventually there was a second stage where he inwardly felt he could solve the problem and the details would slowly surface consciously. At this point, he would begin to visualise the mechanisms and such that would later be actually built. In 30 years of such relaxed 'tapping in' there was never an invention that failed to work."

Fusion Experiments Show Nuclear Power's Softer Side "... All but abandoned 20 years ago, nuclear energy is again hot news. But while new fission reactors vie with wind turbines and biofuels to raise the old NIMBY hackles, some look to a future where atoms are spliced, not split. ' The promise of nuclear fusion is safe, clean energy,' said Rob Goldston, director of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. 'With fusion, if all the fuel burns at once, your shift supervisor will get annoyed with you. With fission, if it all burns at once, your nearest 200,000 neighbors have to move out of their homes.' Fusion fuel is made from water instead of dangerous elements like uranium. Not only is it safe, but the oceans provide an endless supply. There is, however, a problem: Fusion doesn't work. In hopes of changing that, international consortia have plunged billions into research, with the latest project, ITER, tagged at $13.3 billion. Even so, scientists expect it will take ITER decades to consistently produce more energy than its consumes...."
What if Cold Fusion is Real? Wired Magazine (11/98): "It was the most notorious scientific experiment in recent memory - in 1989, the two men who claimed to have discovered the energy of the future were condemned as imposters and exiled by their peers. Can it possibly make sense to reopen the cold fusion investigation? A surprising number of researchers already have.... On March 23, 1989, Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann announced their discovery of "cold fusion." It was the most heavily hyped science story of the decade, but the awed excitement quickly evaporated amid accusations of fraud and incompetence. When it was over, Pons and Fleischmann were humiliated by the scientific establishment; their reputations ruined, they fled from their laboratory and dropped out of sight. "Cold fusion" and "hoax" became synonymous in most people's minds, and today, everyone knows that the idea has been discredited. Or has it? In fact, despite the scandal, laboratories in at least eight countries are still spending millions on cold fusion research. During the past nine years this work has yielded a huge body of evidence, while remaining virtually unknown - because most academic journals adamantly refuse to publish papers on it. At most, the story of cold fusion represents a colossal conspiracy of denial. At least, it is one of the strangest untold stories in 20th-century science..." CLICK HERE for the rest of the story.
Cold Fusion Energy Research Co. "... This website is designed to provide the reader with the evidence for the reality of cold fusion heat, and the theory that explains how it can occur. The early problem of poor reproducibility has been avoided in studies carried out by Drs. Arata and Zhang at Osaka University in Japan. These pioneering studies used palladium catalyst coated with adsorbed water. Further progress has been made by using fine powders of palladium embedded in zirconium oxide crystal. A technique developed by Arata and Zhang for selecting candidate catalytic powder suggests that nickel can likely be substituted for palladium. These technical developments suggest that cold fusion energy can play a major role in reducing the world's dependence on fossil fuel. The applicable theory is consistent with the treatment of atomic orbitals and chemical bonds as practiced by today's chemists. The correct theory is compatible with an improved interpretation of quantum mechanics, as taught in English mathematician Roger Penrose's recent book 'The Road to Reality'. Students studying this website will be able to understand how cold fusion works, and its prospects for providing safe home heaters purchased with an internally contained lifetime supply of heavy hydrogen fuel...."

The Return of Nuclear Fusion?
"... They call themselves "fusion gypsies"—scientists who have travelled the world, moving from one nuclear reactor to the next, living the dream that some day, somewhere, they can re-create the reactions that take place in the heart of the stars to generate huge amounts of cheap, clean electricity for the world.
Their goal is nuclear power, but not as we know it. This is fusion and not fission. Fission involves mining, processing and irradiating vast amounts of uranium, and leaving behind an even larger legacy of radioactive waste with half-lives stretching into the next ice age. Whereas, say the fusion gypsies, a small vanload of fuel supplied to a fusion power station could supply the electricity needs of a city of 1m people for a year, and leave behind only paltry amounts of radioactive waste that will decay to nothing within a century...."CLICK HERE for the rest of the story.

Santilli Magnegas Technology "Following systematic research initiated in 1978 at Harvard University and conducted under various research contracts from the U. S. Department of Energy (contracts numbers ER-78-S-02-47420.A000, AS02-78ER04742, DE-ACO2-80ER10651, DE-ACO2-80ER-10651.A001, and DE-ACO2-80ER10651.A002), Dr. Santilli has concluded that one of the most efficient ways to synthesize new combustible gases in large volumes and in short periods of time, is via the use of an electric arc within specially selected liquids... Santilli's Magnegas™ can be cost competitive with that of gasoline when it is produced as a byproduct (rather than as the primary objective) in the recycling of non-radioactive, carbon-rich liquid wastes, such as: antifreeze and other liquid waste available in automotive service stations; towns, farms, or homes liquid wastes; liquid wastes from industrial productions; etc. The recycling of these wastes, which is notoriously expensive, provides all the necessary income to operate the equipment. Combustible gases are then essentially produced at costs solely including storage, handling, and transportation."

Download and read this FREE BOOK... a VERY INTERESTING READ!:
Memories of a Maverick A biography of Andrija Puharich, M.D. LLD. internationally acclaimed American scientist, inventor, researcher, physicist, theorist, and author. Editor of "THE ICELAND PAPERS" (Select Papers on Experimental and Theoretical Research on the Physics of Consciousness) 1979. Dr. Puharich was a leader in the field of psychical research, merging quantum mechanics and relativity into a new scientific world-view to examine the way in which brain/mind function gives rise to a focused consciousness.
"In 1980, Puharich resumed studies on properties of water, beginning with the problem of how to devise a more efficient method of converting water into fuel that could produce energy and power.
The method was awarded a U.S. patent in 1983. No. 4,394,230."
"... There seems to be a new interest in Puharich's patent (US Patent # 4,394,230) even though it is more than 20 years old (interesting reading). Below is some info from the rexresearch.com site:
"Dr Andrija Puharich reportedly drove his motor home for hundreds of thousands of miles around North America in the 1970s using only water as fuel. At a mountain pass in Mexico, he collected snow for water.
Here is the only article he wrote on the subject, plus his patent:
" ...Visionary scientists tell us that the ideal fuel in the future will be as cheap as water, that it will be non toxic both in its short term, and in its long term, effects, that it will be renewable in that it can be used over and over again, that it will be safe to handle, and present minimal storage and transportation problems and costs. And finally that it will be universally available anywhere on earth. What is this magical fuel, and why is it not being used? The fuel is water. It can be used in its fresh water form. It can be used in its salt water form. It can be used in its brackish form. It can be used in its snow and ice form. When such water is decomposed by electrolytic fission into hydrogen and oxygen gases, it becomes a high energy fuel with three times the energy output which is available from an equivalent weight of high grade gasoline...."

T. Henry Moray's "extensive work in the field carries over from Nicola Tesla's earlier theme that the earth was enveloped in an electrical energy zone that was free to be harnessed. "From 1909 to 1943, Dr T Henry Moray, an electrical engineer and inventor worked on the development of what he called "Radiant Energy". Most investigators believe that this energy is the same energy tapped by Lester J Hendershot. However, Moray was a much more well educated man and his device was both more sophisticated and more successful in producing usable amounts of power. Morays device can be compared to Hendershot's in much the same way one could compare a superheterodyne radio receiver to a crystal set."
Wikipedia on Thomas Henry Moray "... Dr. Moray developed what he termed the "Moray Valve" - a device for extracting "radiant energy" from the "energy waves of the universe", which he thought to be an inexhaustible environmental energy source.... The Moray energy device is built on fairly simple principles. We can divide it into three section. 1.antenna 2.Resonance front end 3.Transfer device or Moray Valve 4. Output power section. Contrary to popular belief, the Moray device is not based on zero point energy. The device capturers energy that comes to the earth from space. This energy mostly comes from the solar winds. We can see the Aurora or northern lights. Large solar storms have been known to damage electrical equipment and cause arcing in the far north. When high energy electrons from the sun are captured by the earths magnetic field they spiral at a frequency determined by the intensity of the magnetic field. This frequency is called the cyclotron frequency. By building a long horizontal antenna of the correct height, length and orientation you can setup a standing wave between the surface of the earth and the ionosphere, the layer of the atmosphere that is used for reflecting radio wave in long range communications. This standing wave helps synchronize the energy just as the mirrors in a laser synchronize the emissions in the active medium. The high Q resonance front end is used for tunning and storing the energy that is coupled to the antenna. This frequency should be between 2 Mhz and 6 Mhz depending on the location of the receiver. The higher the voltage that can be built up on the antenna the better coupling to the active medium in the ionosphere and the more energy you can get.... " CLICK HERE for the rest of the story
The Moray Radiant Energy Device"In the early 1900's, Dr. T. Henry Moray of Salt Lake City produced his first device to tap energy from the metafrequency oscillations of empty space itself. Eventually Moray was able to produce a free energy device weighing sixty pounds and producing 50,000 watts of electricity for several hours. Ironically, although he demonstrated his device repeatedly to scientists and engineers, Moray was unable to obtain funding to develop the device further into a useable power station that would furnish electrical power on a mass scale."
Dr. T. Henry Moray "... was one of the most talented electrical circuit designers in the emerging field of radio. After hundreds of experiments designed to improve radio reception, Moray discovered a source of energy transmission apparently available everywhere. Using advanced ideas in solid state detectors, he developed a power source that produced 50,000 watts of a cold form of electricity. By the early 1930's dozens of people had witnessed demonstrations of this astonishing technology..."
Paul Pantone: GEET SystemAs described on the now-defunct Geet.com website "...The GEET Fuel Processor is a self-inducing Plasma generator.... Try to imagine owning the "ultimate" home production power plant; it heats your water, generates electricity, takes care of heating and air conditioning, etc, by utilizing the waste heat from refrigeration and applying it to storage or hot water, while the generator is giving you all the electricity you want. This is all possible using the GEET Fuel Processor. In simple definition, the GEET Fuel Processor could be called a new type of carburetor with a miniature refinery built in. With it, there is no need for catalytic converters, smog pumps and many other costly items on cars."
Project Magnet (see Creation of the Gravito Magnetic Device) As previously described on now-defunct projectmagnet.com "... Project Magnet was created by Pierre Sinclaire in an effort to distribute information concerning the development of new anti-gravitational technology. This technology introduced to him by David Hamel has been the focus of much argument and debate. Mr. Hamel has spent over twenty years trying to convince the public of the viability of his ideas. No one listened. No one could believe such a thing was possible..... It has fostered the development of a new GMD (Gravito Magnetic Device) proto- type, accurate autocad drawing of this device, an authorized publication of life of David Hamel, (THE GRANITE MAN AND BUTTERFLY) as well as two videos on lectures given by Pierre Sinclaire about the technology and ideas expressed by David Hamel."

Magnetic Power Generator
According to Magniwork "... A Zero point magnetic power generator is basically a Free Energy Generator. It uses magnets, and magnetic force to induce perpetual motion. It runs by itself, indefinitely without stopping, thus creating completely free electrical energy, which can fully power your home for free. A Perpetual motion device refers to a machine that runs perpetually i.e. indefinitely, and produces a larger amount of energy than it consumes. Thus, it produces free energy indefinitely, runs by itself, without having to need a third-party device or resource to power it. The free energy devices have been suppressed by the corporate world, because such devices, would allow people to create their own energy for free, which would ultimately shut down the big energy corporations, because people won't need to pay anymore for electricity to fill their pockets...."

Redheffer's Perpetual Motion MachineMuseumofHoaxes.com says "... In 1812 a man called Charles Redheffer appeared in Philadelphia. He had with him a miraculous perpetual motion machine that required no source of energy to run. Or so he claimed. He set up a working model of this machine on the outskirts of the city, near the banks of the Schuylkill River, and displayed it to curious Philadelphians. He also applied for funds from the city government to build a larger version of the machine. On January 21, 1813 eight city commissioners visited Redheffer. Their intent was to inspect his machine in order to determine whether he should be granted the funds he had requested. Redheffer carefully watched them during their inspection, and he stopped them whenever they tried to get too close to the machine, claiming that he was concerned they might damage it. Nevertheless, one of the inspectors still managed to notice something strange about the machine: it was not working in the way that Redheffer claimed that it worked...."

Cold Fusion Research "Proponents of 'cold fusion' claim that nuclear fusion can be made to happen in an apparatus similar to one commonly found in a high school chemistry lab. This claim promises a total solution to the world's energy problems; it was controversial from the start, and was eventually rejected by the mainstream scientific community. Cold Fusion Research, a report released by the US Department of Energy in November of 1989, reflected the consensus of mainstream science on the cold fusion issue, and continues to reflect that consensus today, even as cold fusion claims continue to be made by small groups of scientific dissidents. NCAS presents the full text of the report as an aid to rational analysis of these claims." Freely distributed by the National Capital Area Skeptics
