Free Energy – Fact or Fiction?

While in college Tesla thought it could be possible to operate an electrical motor without sparking brushes. He was told by the professor that such a motor would require perpetual motion and was therefore impossible. Tesla was determined to prove him wrong.

In the 1880’s, despite his professors scoffs, Tesla patented the alternating current generator, motor, and transformer. During the 1890’s he intensively investigated other methods of power generation including a charged particle collector patented in 1901.

When the New York Times in June of 1902 carried a story about an inventor who claimed he had invented an electrical generator that did not require a prime mover in the form of an external fuel supply, Tesla wrote a friend that he had already invented such a device.

Tesla claimed the invention was an electrical generator that would not consume any fuel. Such a generator would be its own prime mover and was utterly impossible according to modern scientists.

Ninety to a hundred years ago, everybody knew that a heavier-than-air machine could not possibly fly. It would violate the laws of physics. This was the learned opinion of practically all of the so-called experts on the matter.

For example, Simon Newcomb declared in 1901:

“The demonstration that no possible combination of known substances, known forms of machinery and known forms of force, can be united in a practical machine by which man shall fly long distances through the air.”

Fortunately, a few people such as the Wright Brothers wouldn’t accept such pronouncements as the final word. Now we take heavier than air flight for granted. Today, orthodox physicists and other scientists are saying similar things against the idea of free energy technologies.

They use negative terms such as pseudoscience and perpetual motion, and citing physical laws which assert that energy cannot be created or destroyed (1st law of thermodynamics), and there is always a decrease in useful energy (2nd law of thermodynamics).

Free energy inventions are devices which can tap a seemingly unlimited supply of energy from the universe, without burning any kind of fuel, creating the perfect solution to the worldwide energy crisis and its associated pollution, degradation, and depletion of the environment. Most free energy devices probably do not create energy, but rather tap into existing natural energy sources by various forms of induction.

Unlike solar or wind devices, free energy devices need little or no energy storage capacity, because they can tap as much energy as needed when needed. Properly designed, free energy devices do not have any limitations.

In The Brooklyn Eagle newspaper, Tesla announced, on July 10th, 1931, that:

“I have harnessed the cosmic rays and caused them to operate a motive device.”

Later on in the same article he said that:

“More than 25 years ago I began my efforts to harness the cosmic rays and I can now state that I have succeeded.”

In 1933, he made the same assertion in an article for the New York American, under the lead in: Device to Harness Cosmic Energy Claimed by Tesla.

“This new power for the driving of the world’s machinery will be derived from the energy which operates the universe, the cosmic energy, whose central source for the earth is the sun and which is everywhere present in unlimited quantities.”

Dating back more than 25 years ago from 1933 would mean that the device Tesla was speaking about must have been built before 1908. Almost certainly the idea had occurred to Tesla years earlier. More precise information is available through his correspondence now located in the Columbia University Library’s collection.

Electricity Without Burning Fuel

Writing on June 10th, 1902 to his friend Robert U. Johnson, editor of Century Magazine, Tesla included a clipping from the previous day’s New York Herald about Clemente Figueras, a woods and forest engineer in Las Palmas, capital of the Canary Islands, who had invented a device for generating electricity without burning fuel.

What became of Figueras and his fuel-less generator is not known, but this announcement in the paper prompted Tesla, in his letter to Johnson, to claim he had already developed such a device and had revealed the underlying physical laws.

Other U.S. patents have been filed: (#3,811,058, #3,879,622, and #4,151,431), for example, for motors that run exclusively on permanent energy, seemingly tapping into energy circulating through the earth’s magnetic field. The first two require a feedback network in order to be self-running.

The third one, (as described in detail in Science & Mechanics magazine, Spring, 1980), requires critical sizes, shapes, orientations, and spacings of magnets, but no feedback. Such a motor could drive an electric generator or reversible heat pump in one’s home, year round, for free. [Complete descriptive copies of U.S. patents are $3.00 each from the U.S. Patent Office, 2021 Jefferson Davis Hwy., Arlington, VA22202; correct 7-digit patent number required.]

According to Oliver Nichelson, who has made extensive studies of Tesla and free energy machines, the device that, at first, seems to best fit Tesla’s claims is found in his patent for an “Apparatus for the Utilization of Radiant Energy” Number 685,957, that was filed for on March 21, 1901 and granted on November 5, 1901.

The concept behind the older technical language is simple -an insulated metal plate is put as high as possible into the air. Another metal plate is put into the ground. A wire is run from the metal plate to one side of a capacitor and a second wire goes from the ground plate to the other side of the capacitor.

The sun, as well as other sources of radiant energy, throw off minute particles of matter positively electrified, which, impinging upon [the upper] plate, communicate continuously an electrical charge to the same. The opposite terminal of the condenser being connected to ground, which may be considered as a vast reservoir of negative electricity, a feeble current flows continuously into the condenser and inasmuch as the particles are charged to a very high potential, this charging of the condenser can continue almost indefinitely, even to the point of rupturing the dielectric.

Today, we would call this device a solar-electric panel. Tesla’s invention is very different though, but the closest thing to it in conventional technology is in photovoltaics. One radical difference is that conventional solar-electric panels consist of a substrate coated with crystalline silicon; the latest use amorphous silicon.

Conventional solar panels are expensive, and, whatever the coating, they are manufactured by esoteric processes. But Tesla’s solar panel is just a shiny metal plate with a transparent coating of an insulating material.

Stick one of these antenna-like panels up in the air, the higher the better, and wire it to one side of a capacitor, the other going to a good earth ground.

Now the energy from the sun is charging that capacitor. Connect across the capacitor some sort of switching device so that it can be discharged at rhythmic intervals, and you have an electric output.

Tesla’s patent tells us that it is very simple to get electric energy. The bigger the area of the insulated plate, the more energy you get. However, this is more than a solar panel because it does not necessarily need sunshine to operate. It also produces power at night.

Of course, this is impossible according to official science. For this reason, you could not get a patent on such an invention today. Tesla’s free energy receiver refers to the sun, as well as other sources of radiant energy, like cosmic rays.

That the device works at night is explained in terms of the night time availability of cosmic rays. Tesla also refers to the ground as a vast reservoir of negative electricity.

Tesla was fascinated by radiant energy and its free energy possibilities. He called the Crooke’s radiometer (a device which has vanes that spin in a vacuum when exposed to radiant energy) a beautiful invention. He believed that it would become possible to harness energy directly by connecting to the very wheelwork of nature.

This seems like a very straightforward design and would seem to fulfill his claim for having developed a fuel-less generator powered by cosmic rays, but in 1900 Tesla wrote what he considered his most important article in which he describes a self-activating machine that would draw power from the ambient medium, a fuel less generator, that is different from his Radiant Energy Device.

Entitled: The Problem of Increasing Human Energy – Through the Use of the Sun, the article was published by his friend Robert Johnson in The Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine for June 1900.

The title of the chapter where he discusses this device is called: A Departure From Known Methods -Possibility of a “Self Acting” Engine or Machine, Inanimate, Yet Capable, Like an Living Being, of Deriving Energy From the Medium -The Ideal Way of Obtaining Motive Power.

Tesla stated he first started thinking about the idea when he read a statement by Lord Kelvin who said it was impossible to build a mechanism capable of abstracting heat from the surrounding medium and to operate by that heat. Tesla envisioned a very long bundle of metal rods, extending from the earth to outer space.

The earth is warmer than outer space so heat would be conducted up the bars along with an electric current. Then, all that would be needed is a very long power cord to connect the two ends of the metal bars to a motor.

The motor would continue running until the earth was cooled to the temperature of outer space. Of course, now we wouldn’t need a power cord to connect the two ends -microwaves would serve.

This would be an inanimate engine which, to all evidence, would be cooling a portion of the medium below the temperature of the surrounding, and operating by the heat abstracted, that is, it would produce energy directly from the environment without the consumption of any material.

Tesla goes on in the article to describe how he worked on the development of such an energy device – here it takes a bit of detective work to focus on which of his inventions he meant.

He wrote that he first started thinking about deriving energy directly from the environment when he was in Paris during 1883, but that he was unable to do much with the idea for several years due to the commercial introduction of his alternating current generators and motors. It was not until 1889 when he again took up the idea of the self-acting machine.

In 1893, Tesla applied for a patent on an electrical coil that is the most likely candidate for a non-mechanical successor of his energy extractor. This is his “Coil for Electro-magnets,” patent #512,340. It is a curious design, unlike an ordinary coil made by turning wire on a tube form, this one uses two wires laid next to each other on a form but with the end of the first one connected to the beginning of the second one.

In the patent Tesla explains that this double coil will store many times the energy of a conventional coil. The patent, however, gives no hint of what might have been its more unusual capability.

In an article for Century Magazine, Tesla compares extracting energy from the environment to the work of other scientists who were, at that time, learning to condense atmospheric gases into liquids. In particular he cited the work of a Dr. Karl Linde who had discovered what Tesla described as a self-cooling method for liquefying air.

As Tesla said,

“This was the only experimental proof which I was still wanting that energy was obtainable from the medium in the manner contemplated by me.”

What ties the Linde work with Tesla’s electromagnet coil is that both of them used a double path for the material they were working with. Linde had a compressor to pump the air to a high pressure, let the pressure fall as it traveled through a tube, and then used that cooled air to reduce the temperature of the incoming air by having it travel back up the first tube through a second tube enclosing the first.

The already cooled air added to the cooling process of the machine and quickly condensed the gases to a liquid. Tesla’s intent was to condense the energy trapped between the earth and its upper atmosphere and to turn it into an electric current.

He pictured the sun as an immense ball of electricity, positively charged with a potential of some 200 billion volts. The Earth, on the other hand, is charged with negative electricity.

The tremendous electrical force between these two bodies constituted, at least in part, what he called cosmic energy. It varied from night to day and from season to season but it is always present.

Tesla’s patents for electrical generators and motors were granted in the late 1880’s. During the 1890’s the large electric power industry, in the form of Westinghouse and General Electric, came into being. With tens of millions of dollars invested in plants and equipment, the industry was not about to abandon a very profitable ten year old technology for yet another new one.

Tesla saw that profits could be made from the self-acting generator, but somewhere along the line it was pointed out to him the negative impact the device would have on the newly emerging technological revolution of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

At the end of his article in Century he wrote:

“I worked for a long time fully convinced that the practical realization of the method of obtaining energy from the sun would be of incalculable industrial value, but the continued study of the subject revealed the fact that while it will be commercially profitable if my expectations are well founded, it will not be so to an extraordinary degree.”

Years later, in 1933, he was more pointed in his remarks about the introduction of his fuel-less generator. In the Philadelphia Public Ledger of November 2, is an interview with Tesla under the headline: Tesla ‘Harnesses’ Cosmic Energy.

In it he was asked whether the sudden introduction of his principle would upset the present economic system, Dr. Tesla replied,

“It is badly upset already.” He added: “Now as never before was the time ripe for the development of new resources.”

At a press conference to celebrate his 76th birthday, Tesla announced that he had invented a cosmic-ray motor.

When asked if it was more powerful than the Crooke’s radiometer, he answered,

“Thousands of times more powerful.”

Tesla claimed that from the electric potential that exists between the elevated plate (plus) and the ground (minus), energy builds in the capacitor, and, after a suitable time interval, the accumulated energy will manifest itself in a powerful discharge.

Unfortunately, this invention, like so many others that Tesla claimed near the end of his life, allegedly never was developed. At least it was never developed publicly. When he died, there were in all, the approximate equivalent of a railroad boxcar load of Tesla materials confiscated by the government, from around four different storage locations.

Of this, a total of only about 150,000 documents were released to Tesla’s Yugoslavian relatives, now held by the Tesla Institute in Belgrade. These documents and old models, primarily of a historical nature, comprise most of the published Tesla materials of the institute.

A huge volume of documents and models were retained by the Custodian of Alien Properties in an unclassified state, because the government’s experts had declared that none of it was worth classifying.

From 1943 until 1945, when, following the arrival of the Nazi scientists and the secret war files of Nazi Germany, acquired under Operation Paperclip, officials from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base hurried up to the warehouses of the Custodian of Alien Properties, and took possession of all the documents and other materials, all which were classified at the highest level.

The remainder of Tesla’s papers in government hands are still classified. There are literally tons of notes, documents, drawings, and plans, as well as the over twenty boxes of still missing Tesla material. The government distributed false rumors that Tesla never kept notes, which was a blatant lie.

To this day, there is no way of knowing whether or not Tesla’s cosmic ray motor was practical or not. However, evidence found in Tesla’s lost journals seems to indicate that free energy is possible and within the framework of known science.

Richard (Scott) McKie designed and tested in 1991 a small model of a Power On Demand MODule. The circuitry invokes Tesla’s theories of electron flow, resonance, and magnetism, combined with modern theories on high frequency electronics and radio antennas to generate power directly, without the inefficient conversion of energy from other sources.

Tesla applied the knowledge gained from his Colorado experiments in the construction of Wardenclyffe in what is today Shoreham, Long Island. This facility was to be his crowning achievement: a World Telegraphy Center.

Tesla envisioned not only the broadcast of news and transmission of encoded personal messages, but also a universal time code and the transmission of electricity.

Tree Energy Research Today

Patrick G. Bailey, Ph. D. in his Review Of Zero Point Energy And Free Energy Theory, Progress, And Devices – writes that the study of the free energy field overlaps with quite a number of other areas of science and technology that are not well understood, and are usually called “fringe areas.”

Bailey believes that responsible investigations in these areas do uncover important information and data that can relate to various questions that occur in the study of free energy.

These questions include:

  • Why is this research not conducted?
  • Is it suppressed?
  • Why is it suppressed?
  • Are there other examples of such suppression?
  • Where can I get more information?
  • Are there any examples of such advanced related technologies?
  • If such energy sources exist, has anyone found out how to use them?
  • How do they work?
  • Can I use them, and can I use them in a responsible manner?

There is a great outcry by those familiar with our current energy policy and the public electricity utility network for need of a new breakthrough in the technology of energy production. Dr. Gary Johnson, a college professor and IEEE Senior Member, recently published a short review of the researchers in this area in a noted US technical journal and concluded his four page report with the statement:

“There is a great deal of noise in the literature. Some concepts are obviously nonsense. Others will prove to be in error. But is there any signal in all the noise? There is if Tesla, Moray, and Bearden are correct. The potential payoff is enormous, so the search should be continued if there is any chance at all of success.”

Also, Llewellen King, publisher of The Energy Daily, Defense Week, and Environmental Week newsletters in Washington DC recently strongly and dramatically stated in a speech to an international technical conference:

“We have failed with energy to come up with the ‘Great Big Breakthrough!’ ‘The Major Change.’ ‘The Radically Different Thing.’ ‘The Quantum Leap Forward.’ Where is the jump from a copper wire to a fiber or to a cable? Where is the equivalent of fiber optics for electricity?… The new technologies such as magnetohydrodynamics, (are advancing and coming forth), and yet these things have not fostered – and we are still boiling water! It is theoretically possible that we could at some point take this ‘Quantum Leap Forward.’ And in order to do that, I believe that you will need new institutions to deploy new technology.

“They won’t be deployed by the extant of the old institutions. The challenge in technology is to find It, and then sell It, and finally to deploy It.”

Does there exist a conspiracy to suppress free energy devices -like the suppression that confronted Tesla with his free-energy receiver? There is the possibility that there is a collection and network of vested interest groups that seem to tightly band together for mutual financial survival.

The actions taken by any of these groups may be completely independent from the others. As well, some sort of control and suppression in the press seems very evident. Ken MacNeill published in 1983 a very disturbing article entitled “Insights into the Proprietary Syndrome,” in which he points out that over 3,000 patents have been suppressed!

Two historical events are worth including here regarding possible suppression and inability to commercialize free energy devices. These are the Over-Unity Device of T. Henry Moray, and the Hindershot Motor. Both of these devices were publicly demonstrated to the US press in the 1930s, and carefully conducted tests were made to assess these devices.

From the newspaper reports and clippings, it appears that both devices passed all tests, only to fall into oblivion. What exactly happened to the devices, their inventors, and the technology is not known. It also appears that the secrets of the devices died with their inventors.

Toby Grotz has presented theory and results of Project Tesla to determine if the earth’s electrostatic (atmospheric) Schumann Cavity can be resonated, if the power that is delivered to the cavity propagates with very low losses, and if power can be extracted at other locations within the cavity. A theoretical analysis of Tesla’s “Death Ray” was also presented by Toby Grotz (1991).

By carefully examining historical records, this 1937 design was probably the first attempt to construct a high voltage particle beam device. Tesla’s estimates indicate that a five meter diameter metal sphere charged to 60 million volts could project a high energy charged particle beam up to 60 kilometers through the air in a given direction.

In 1991, Oliver Nichelson summarized two of Tesla’s later energy generation device designs, including a turbine-shaped Unipolar Dynamo design for a machine that can continue to produce electricity after being disconnected from an outside power source.

This paper is also important because it also describes Tesla’s “Coil for Electro-Magnetics,” patented in 1893.

Following in Tesla’s Footprints

In the early 1900’s, Dr. Thomas 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.

Like Tesla, Moray had run afoul of those who had an “energy monopoly” and were not willing to share.

As a boy, Moray had been deeply inspired by Nikola Tesla. Moray was especially enthusiastic by Tesla’s claims of free energy, and his emphasis on frequencies as the stuff of the universe. When Moray finished high school he went abroad to study, and took resident examinations for his doctorate in electrical engineering from the University of Uppsala, Sweden, during the period 1912-14.

Moray at first theorized that energy was coming from within the earth. Through continuous experimentation and in spite of the doubts held by the scientific community of the day, he discovered that the energy was not coming from the ground but from an outside source away from the earth.

The energy came in continuous surges, like waves of the sea, more in the daytime than at night. At this time Moray had enough power to light a 16-candle power carbon lamp at about one-half capacity. He labeled and defined his “Radiant Energy: the source of energy coming from the cosmos to the earth and radiating back from whence it came.”

Around 1920, Moray produced his first elementary device that delivered measurable electrical power, and he continued to work diligently on energy devices when he had time. In the 1920’s and 1930’s he steadily improved his devices, particularly his detector tube, the only real secret of the device according to Moray himself.

In his book, The Sea Of Energy In Which The Earth Floats, Moray presents documented evidence that he invented the first transistor-type valve in 1925. In his free energy detector tube Moray apparently used, inside the tube itself, a variation of this transistor idea—a small rounded pellet of a mixture of triboluminescent zinc, a semiconductor material, and a radioactive material.

Channeling the waves of energy was done by way of an antenna. When set up and connected to the ground, priming and then tuning, the device would draw electrical energy. Results of this experimentation proved that the power generation had not originated from within the device. The device, through channeling radiant energy, produced up to 50,000 Watts of power and worked for long periods of time.

According to Moray, highly energetic cosmic rays from space are tapped by the machine, which is in subharmonic resonance with this high-frequency energy level, and it converts this energy level into a usable form of electricity. However, Moray’s use of the term “cosmic ray” is not necessarily the same as that of modern physics, but in fact is the same as the present concept of zero-point energy of vacuum.

Moray envisioned all space filled with tremendously high frequency vibrations carrying vast and incalculable amounts of pure raw energy. He envisioned the dynamic Universe as a turbulent source of great energy, just as the ocean waves carry energy throughout the earth. This idea was also shared by Tesla,

Moray’s patent application (never granted) was filed on July 13, 1931, long before the advent of the Bell Laboratories’ transistor. Moray successfully demonstrated his radiant energy device to electrical engineering professors, congressmen, dignitaries, and a host of other visitors to his laboratory. Moray even moved his device several miles out in the country, away from all power lines, to prove that he was not simply tuning in to energy being clandestinely radiated from some other part of his laboratory.

Several times he allowed independent investigators to completely disassemble his device and reassemble it, then reactivate it themselves. In all tests, he was successful in demonstrating that the device could produce energy output without any appreciable energy input. According to exhaustive documentation, no one was ever able to prove that the device was fraudulent or that Moray had not accomplished exactly what he claimed.

On the other hand, the records are full of signed statements from physicists, electrical engineers, and scientists who came to the Moray laboratory as skeptics and left convinced that Moray had succeeded in tapping a universal source of energy that could produce free electrical power.

But despite his successes, the U.S. Patent Office refused to grant Moray a patent, first, because his device used a cold cathode in the tubes (the patent examiner asserted it was common knowledge that a heated cathode was necessary to obtain electrons) and, second, because he failed to identify the source of the energy.

All sorts of irrelevant patents and devices were also presented as being infringed upon or duplicated by Moray’s work. Each of these objections was patiently answered and nullified by Moray; nonetheless, the patent has still not been issued to this day, although Moray’s family still keep the patent application current.

According to writer Tom Bearden, one of Moray’s efforts to develop the machine involved an association with the Rural Electrification Agency for a short time before World War II. At that time, the R.E.A. was apparently infiltrated at the highest levels by Communist sympathizers. These officials continually urged Moray to turn over all details of his device to the Soviet Union, and even arranged the visit of high level Soviet scientists to the Moray laboratory to see the device in operation.

It is thought that because of Moray’s dealings with the R.E.A. – much of his important work was obtained clandestinely by the Soviet Union. Bearden speculates that Moray’s work inspired the Soviets to develop the hyperspace amplifiers later used in their psychotronic weapons.

Moray became quite alarmed at the continued attempts of his R.E.A. contacts to get the device into the hands of the Russians. He eventually concluded that he had become involved with a governmental group filled with radicals and reactionaries. Much like Tesla, Moray became concerned that fifth column activity was actually directed against him in an attempt to steal his device.

Perhaps because of his misgivings, Moray was wounded by a gunshot in his own laboratory on March 2, 1940. No details have ever surfaced concerning who fired the shot or if Moray was the intended target. Moray finally discontinued his association with the R.E.A. in February 1941.

Unfortunately, Moray’s basic unit was destroyed in 1939 by a man who had wanted Moray to fully disclose the inner workings and construction of his device. In Moray’s day there was no theory predicting that empty space contained prodigious quantities of energy. Modern followers of quantum geometrodynamics assert the truth of Tesla’s original vision. Today we know that one cubic centimeter of pure vacuum contains enough energy to condense into 1080 -10120 grams of matter. Thus the major part of Tesla’s and Moray’s thesis -that vacuum itself contains unlimited energy -is vindicated today.

With the high price of gasoline and the ever growing concern for our environment, the concept of an all electric car is once again being considered by the major auto manufacturers. Unfortunately, the problem with battery weight and storage still makes electric cars economically unfeasible.

In an article by Arthur Abrom for the Dallas Morning News, it was pointed out that electric powered automobiles were one of the earliest considerations and this mode of propulsion enjoyed a brief but short reign. In the early days of automobile development, electric propulsion was considered and used.

An electric powered automobile possessed many advantages that the noisy, cantankerous, smoke-belching gasoline cars could not offer. First and foremost is the absolute silence one experiences when riding in an electrically powered vehicle. There is not even a hint of noise.

One simply turns a key and steps on the accelerator -the vehicle moves instantly. No cranking from the start, no crank to turn (this was before electric starters), no pumping of the accelerator, no spark control to advance and no throttle linkage to pre-set before starting. One simply turned the ignition switch to on and away you went.

If one wants to increase speed, you simply depress the accelerator, further there is never any hesitation. Releasing the accelerator causes the vehicle to slow down immediately -you are always in complete control. It is not difficult to understand why these vehicles were so very popular around the turn of the century and until around 1915.

The big disadvantage to these cars then, and even today, was their range and need for recharging every night. All of these electric vehicles used a series of batteries and a D.C. motor. The batteries require constant recharging and the range of travel was restricted to about 100 miles. Many of the large department stores in metropolitan areas began purchasing delivery trucks that were electrically powered. They were silent and emitted no pollutants. They were almost the perfect car.

Maintenance was a minimum on electrically powered vehicles. There were few mechanics and garages in operation in the early 1900’s. So city life and travel appeared to be willing to embrace the electric automobile.

Two things happened to dampen the popularity of the electric automobile. One was the subconscious craving for speed that gripped all auto enthusiasts of this era. Electric vehicles could not reach speeds of 45 or 50 m.p.h. for this would have destroyed the batteries in moments. Bursts of speeds of 25 to 35 m.p.h. could be maintained for a moment or so.

Normal driving speed, depending upon traffic conditions, was 15 to 20 m.p.h. by 1900 to 1910 standards, this was an acceptable speed limit to obtain from your electric vehicle. As well, the electric automobile could not be adapted to accommodate and utilize Tesla’s polyphase A.C. motor. So, somewhere around 1915 or so, the electric automobile became just a memory.

In 1931, under the financing of Pierce-Arrow and George Westinghouse, a 1931 Pierce-Arrow was selected to be tested at the factory grounds in Buffalo, N.Y. The standard internal combustion engine was removed and an 80-H.P. 1800 r.p.m electric motor installed to the clutch and transmission. The A.C. motor measured 40 inches long and 30 inches in diameter and the power leads were left standing in the air -no external power source.

At the appointed time, Nikola Tesla arrived from New York City and inspected the Pierce-Arrow automobile. He then went to a local radio store and purchased a handful of tubes, wires and assorted resistors. A box measuring 24 inches long, 12 inches wide and 6 inches high was assembled housing the circuit.

The box was then placed on the front seat and had its wires connected to the air cooled, brushless motor. Two rods 1 /4″ in diameter stuck out of the box about 3″ in length. Mr. Tesla got into the driver’s seat, pushed the two rods in and stated, “We now have power.” He put the car into gear and it moved forward.

This vehicle, powered by an A.C. motor, was driven to speeds of 90 m.p.h. and performed better than any internal combustion engine of its day. One week was spent testing the vehicle. Several newspapers in Buffalo reported this test.

When asked where the power came from, Tesla replied, “From the ethers all around us.” Several people suggested that Tesla was mad and somehow in league with sinister forces of the universe. He became incensed, removed his mysterious box from the vehicle and returned to his laboratory in New York City.

His secret apparently died with him. It is speculated that Tesla was able to somehow harness the earth’s magnetic field that encompasses our planet. And, he somehow was able to draw tremendous amounts of power by cutting these lines of force or causing them to be multiplied together. The exact nature of his device remains a mystery.

In 1969, Joseph R. Zubris took his 1961 Mercury and pulled out the Detroit internal combustion engine. He then installed an electric motor as a source of power. His unique wiring system cut the energy drain at starting to 75% of normal and doubled the electrical efficiency of the electric motor when operating.

The U.S. Patent Office issued him a patent No. 3,809,978. Although he approached many concerns for marketing, no one really seemed to be interested. And, his unique system is still not on the market.

In the 1970’s, an inventor used an Ev-Gray generator, which intensified battery current, the voltage being induced to the field coils by a very simple programmer (sequencer). By allowing the motor to charge separate batteries as the device ran, phenomenally tiny currents were needed.

The device was tested at the Crosby Research Institute of Beverly Hills, Ca., a 10-horsepower EMA motor ran for over a week (9 days) on four standard automobile batteries. The inventors estimated that a 50-horsepower electric motor could traverse 300 miles at 50 m.p.h. before needing a re-charge.

Dr. Keith E. Kenyon, the inventor from Van Nuys, California discovered a discrepancy in the normal and long accepted laws relating to electric motor magnets. Dr. Kenyon demonstrated his invention for many scientists and engineers in 1976 but their reaction was astounding. Although admitting Dr. Kenyon’s device worked, they saw little or no practical application for it.

The ultimate source for a successful electrically powered automobile would be to have an electric motor that required no outside source of power. Sounds impossible because it violates all current scientific thought. Nevertheless, it has been invented and H.R. Johnson has been issued a patent No. 4,151,431 on April 24, 1979 on such a device.

This new design although originally suggested by Tesla in 1905, is a permanent magnet motor. Mr. Johnson has arranged a series of permanent magnets on the rotor and a corresponding series – with different spacing -on the stator. One simply has to move the stator into position and rotation of the rotor begins immediately.

Johnson’s patent states:

“The invention is directed to the method of utilizing the unpaired electron spins in ferro-magnetic and other materials as a source of magnetic fields for producing power without any electron flow as occurs in normal conductors and to permanent magnet motors for utilization of this method to produce a power source.”

In the practice of this invention, the unpaired electron spins occurring within permanent magnets are used to produce a motive power source solely through the super-conducting characteristics of a permanent magnet and the magnetic flux created by the magnets are controlled and concentrated to orient the magnetic forces generated in such a manner to do useful continuous work such as the displacement of a rotor with respect to a stator.

The timing and orientation of special magnetic forces at the rotor and stator components produced by permanent magnets to produce a motor is accomplished with the proper geometrical relationship of these components. Engineers of Hitachi Magnetics Corp. of California have stated that a motor run solely by magnets is feasible and logical but the politics of the matter make it impossible for them to pursue developing a magnet motor or any device that would compete with the energy cartels.

In fact, it appears that such devices have been deliberately suppressed over the years to prevent any competition from machines that can generate power without a fuel source.

This would put big oil and other energy cartels out of business.

The Real Reason For Tesla’s Interest in Free Energy

According to Tesla’s private journals, anomalous voice transmissions heard over his special radio receivers, discussed the warming of the planet caused by natural and manmade sources of atmospheric pollutants.

Tesla was also left with the impression that the unknown voices favored this outcome and may have actually “hurried” the process along by encouraging the development of the internal combustion engine.

Tesla may have been the first human to learn about what is referred to today as “Global Warming” and the “Greenhouse Effect.” Tesla, convinced that the voices he was receiving were from a hostile extraterrestrial source, began a concerted effort to develop a means of power that did not use the burning of wood or fossil fuels. An energy source that was clean and unlimited and would prevent pollutants, at least manmade, from filling the atmosphere and causing the retention of heat from the sun.

Tesla was the first to become aware of one of the most controversial subjects in conspiratorial circles today – Alternative Three and the destruction of earth!


Did Tesla Discover the Secrets of Antigravity?

Nikola Tesla has been credited for the creation of much of the technology that we take for granted today. Without the genius of Tesla we would not have radio, television, AC electricity, Tesla coil, fluorescent lighting, neon lighting, radio control devices, robotics, x-rays, radar, microwaves and dozens of other amazing inventions.

Because of this, it is no surprise that Tesla also delved into the world of flight and possibly, antigravity. In fact, his last patent in 1928 (#1,655,114), was for a flying machine that resembled both a helicopter and an airplane. Before he died, Tesla reportedly devised plans for the engine of a spaceship. He called it the anti-electromagnetic field drive or Space Drive.

William R. Lyne writes in Occult Ether Physics, that a lecture Tesla prepared for the Institute of Immigrant Welfare (May. 12, 1938), dealt with his Dynamic Theory of Gravity. Tesla said in his lecture that this was:

“One of two far reaching discoveries, which I worked out in all details in the years 1893 and 1894.”

While researching Tesla’s statements, Lyne discovered that more complete statements concerning these discoveries could only be gleaned from scattered and sparse sources, because Tesla’s papers are concealed in government vaults for national security reasons.

When Lyne specifically asked for these papers at the National Security Research Center (now the Robert J. Oppenheimer Research Center) in 1979, he was denied access because they were still classified. In his 1938 lecture, Tesla said he was progressing with the work, and hoped to give the theory to the world very soon.


The two great discoveries to which Tesla referred, were:

  1. The Dynamic Theory of Gravity – which assumed a field of force which accounts for the motions of bodies in space; assumption of this field of force dispenses with the concept of space curvature (ala Einstein); the ether has an indispensable function in the phenomena (of universal gravity, inertia, momentum, and movement of heavenly bodies, as well as all atomic and molecular matter).
  2. Environmental Energy – the Discovery of a new physical Truth: there is no energy in matter other than that received from the environment. (Which goes against Einstein’s E=mc2). The usual Tesla birthday announcement -on his 79th birthday (1935) -Tesla made a brief reference to the theory saying it applies to molecules and atoms as well as to the largest heavenly bodies, and to “… all matter in the universe in any phase of its existence from its very formation to its ultimate disintegration.”

In an article, Man’s Greatest Achievement(below insert), Tesla outlined his Dynamic Theory of Gravity by saying that the luminiferous ether fills all space.

The ether is acted upon by the life-giving creative force and is thrown into “infinitesimal whirls” (“micro helices”) at near the speed of light, becoming ponderable matter. When the force subsides and motion ceases, matter reverts to the ether (a form of “atomic decay”).

Man can harness these processes to:

  • Precipitate matter from the ether.
  • Create whatever he wants with the matter and energy derived.
  • Alter the earth’s size.
  • Control earth’s seasons (weather control).
  • Guide earth’s path through the Universe, like a spaceship.
  • Cause the collisions of planets to produce new suns and stars, heat, and light.
  • Originate and develop life in infinite forms.

When Tesla was 82, instead of speaking at a dinner party, he issued a written statement. Although this was soon after he had been struck by a car, his mind was obviously still capable of mounting an attack on Einstein’s theory of relativity:

“I have worked out a dynamic theory of gravity in all details and hope to give this to the world very soon. It explains the causes of this force and the motions of heavenly bodies under its influence so satisfactorily that it will put an end to idle speculations and false conceptions, as that of curved space. According to the relativists, space has a tendency to curvature owing to an inherent property or presence of celestial bodies.

“Granting a semblance of reality to this fantastic idea, it is still very self-contradictory. Every action is accompanied by an equivalent reaction and the effects of the latter are directly opposite to those of the former. Supposing that the bodies act upon the surrounding space causing curvature of the same, it appears to my simple mind that the curved spaces must react on the bodies and, producing the opposite effects, straighten out the curves.

“Since action and reaction are coexistent, it follows that the supposed curvature of space is entirely impossible -However, even if it existed it would not explain the motions of the bodies as observed. Only the existence of a field of force can account for them and its assumption dispenses with space curvature. All literature on this subject is futile and destined to oblivion.”

It is a great pity that Tesla never published his dynamic theory of gravity. Modern thinking about gravity suggests that when a heavy object moves it emits gravitational waves that radiate at the speed of light. These gravity waves behave in similar ways to many other types of waves.

Tesla’s greatest inventions were all based on the study of waves. He always considered sound, light, heat, X-rays and radio waves to be related phenomena that could be studied using the same sort of maths. His differences with Einstein suggest that he had extended this thinking to gravity.

In the 1980s he was proved to be right. A study of energy loss in a double neutron star pulsar called PSR 1913 + 16 proved that gravity waves exist. Tesla’s idea that gravity is a field effect is now taken more seriously than Einstein took it.

Unfortunately, Tesla never revealed what had led him to this conclusion. He never explained his theory of gravitation to the world. The attack he made on Einstein’s work was considered outrageous by the scientific establishment of the time, and only now do we have enough understanding of gravity to realize that he was right.

How to Build a Flying Saucer

Tesla had discovered that the electrostatic emission from the surface of a conductor will always concentrate where the surface curves or even presents an edge. The sharper the curve or edge, the greater the concentration of electron emission. Tesla also observed that an electrostatic charge will flow over the surface of a conductor rather than penetrate it. This is called the Faraday or Skin Effect, discovered by Michael Faraday many years ago.

This also explains the principles of the Faraday Cage which is used in high voltage research labs to protect humans and electrosensitive equipment from harm. According to eyewitness reports of interiors of UFOs, there is a circular column or channel through the center of the vehicle.

This reportedly serves as a superstructure for the rest of the saucer shaped vehicle, and also carries a high voltage, high frequency coil. It is believed to be a resonant transformer which gives the electrostatic and electromagnetic charge to the craft and establishes polarity.

This coil is relative to what is known as a Tesla coil. The Tesla Coil of course, was invented by Tesla in 1891. This column or channel is approximately two feet in diameter and is hollow. On some vehicles this hollow area has a turbine generator in it.

When the vacuum is created on one hemisphere of the craft, the atmospheric pressure is allowed to rush through the tube to drive a sort of turbine electrical generator. Some reports say the extraterrestrials use this system as stationary power plants for electrical energy on their planets as well.

The eyes of the craft are arranged by electro-optic lenses placed at quadrants or wherever they wish to see from. The screen-like monitors are placed on a console where the navigator can observe all areas around and about the vehicle at the same time. This includes the magnification lenses which are used without changing positions.

There are also windows about elbow level and about one foot through or thick. This distance would have to be in view of the four or more walls or plates of the capacitor hulls making up the major portion of the craft. The windows have an iris type of shutter so that when it is closed, it allows electrostatic charge to flow evenly.

Dr T. Townsend Brown and Electrogravitics

The idea of using high voltage electricity as a means of propulsion is not new. Tesla laid the groundwork in the late 19th century which was then continued by such notables as Thomas Townsend Brown, who discovered in 1923 what was later called the Biefeld -Brown Effect.

Thomas Townsend Brown, was a physics student of Dr. Paul Alfred Biefeld at the California Institute for Advanced Studies. Brown noticed that when he had two plates carrying high voltages of direct current separated by a dielectric, the negative electrode moved by itself in the direction of the positive plate. In other words, Townsend Brown discovered that it is possible to create an artificial gravity field by charging an electrical capacitor to a high-voltage.

He built a special capacitor which utilized a heavy, high charge-accumulating (high K-factor) dielectric material between its plates and found that when charges with between 70,000 to 300,000 volts, it would move in the direction of its positive pole. When oriented with its positive side up, it would proceed to lose about one percent of it’s weight.

He attributed this motion to an electrostatically-induced gravity field acting between the capacitor’s oppositely charged plates. By 1958, he had succeeded in developing a 15 inch diameter model saucer that could lift over 110% of its weight. Brown’s experiments had launched a new field of investigation which came to be known as Electrogravitics, the technology of controlling gravity through the use of high-voltage electric charge.

As early as 1952, an Air Force major general witnessed a demonstration in which Brown flew a pair of 18 inch disc airfoils suspended from opposite ends of a rota-table arm. When electrified with 50,000 volts, they circuited at a speed of 12 miles per hour.

About a year later, he flew a set of 3 foot diameter saucers for some Air Force officials and representatives from a number of major aircraft companies. When energized with 150,000 volts, the discs sped around the 50 foot diameter course so fast that the subject was immediately classified.

Interavia magazine later reported that the discs could attain speeds of several hundred miles per hour when charged with several hundred thousand volts. Brown’s discs were charged with a high positive voltage, on a wire, running along their leading edge and a high negative voltage, on a wire, running along their trailing edge.

As the wires ionized the air around them, a dense cloud of positive ions would form ahead of the craft and corresponding cloud of negative ions would form behind the craft. Brown’s research indicated that, like the charged plates of his capacitors, these ion clouds induced a gravitational force directed in the minus to plus direction.

As the disc moved forward in the response to its self generated gravity field, it would carry with it its positive and negative ion clouds and their associated electrogravity gradient. Consequently, the discs would ride their advancing gravity wave much like surfers ride an ocean wave.

Dr. Mason Rose, one of Townsend’s colleagues, described the discs principle of operation as follows:

“The saucers made by Brown have no propellers, no jets, no moving parts at all. They create a modification of the gravitational field around themselves, which is analogous to putting them on the incline of a hill.

They act like a surfboard on a wave… the electrogravitational saucer creates its own hill, which is a local distortion of the gravitational field, then it takes this hill with it in any chosen direction and at any rate.

“The occupants of one of [Brown’s] saucers would feel no stress at all no matter how sharp the turn or how great the acceleration. This is because the ship and its occupants and the load are all responding equally to the wave-like distortion of the local gravitation field.”

Although skeptics at first thought that the discs were propelled by more mundane effects such as the pressure of negative ions striking the positive electrode. Brown later carried out vacuum chamber tests which proved that a force was present even in the absence of such ion thrust.

He did not offer a theory to explain this unconventional electrogravitic phenomenon; except to say that it was predicted neither by general relativity nor by modern theories of electromagnetism. However, recent advances in theoretical physics provide a rather straightforward explanation of the principle.

According to the novel physics of subquantum kinetics, gravity potential can adopt two polarities, instead of one. Not only can a gravity field exist in the form of a matter-attracting gravity potential well, as standard physics teaches, but it can also exist in the form of a matter repelling gravity potential hill.

Moreover, it predicts that these gravity polarities should be directly matched with electrical polarity; positively charged particles such as protons generating gravity wells and negatively charged particles such as electrons generating gravity hills.

Thus contrary to conventional theory, the electron produces a matter-repelling gravity field. Electrical neutral matter remains gravitationally attractive because of the proton’s G-well marginally dominates the electron’s G-hill. Consequently, subquantum kinetics predicts that the negative ion cloud behind Brown’s disc should form a matter repelling gravity hill while the positive ion cloud ahead of the disc should form a matter attracting gravity well.

As increasing voltage is applied to the disc, the gravity potential hill and well become increasing prominent and the gravity potential gradient between them increasing steep. In Rose’s terminology, the craft would find itself on the incline of a gravitational hill. Since gravity force is known to increase in accordance with the steepness of such a gravity potential slope, increased voltage would induce an increasingly strong gravity force on the disc and would act in the direction of the positive ion cloud. The disc would behave as if it was being tugged by a very strong gravitational field emanating from an invisible planet sized mass positioned beyond its positive pole.

Early in 1952 Brown had put together a proposal, code named Project Winterhaven, which suggested that the military developed an antigravity combat saucer with Mach-3 capability. The 1956 intelligence study entitled Electrogravitics Systems – An Explanation of Electrostatic Motion, Dynamic Counterbary and Barycentric Control, prepared by the private aviation intelligence firm, Aviation Studies International Ltd., indicates that as early as November 1954 the Air Force had begun plans to fund research that would accomplish Project Winterhaven’s objectives.

The study, originally classified Confidential, mentions the name of more than ten major aircraft companies which were actively involved in the electrogravitics research in an attempt to duplicate or extend Brown’s seminal work. Additional information is to be found in another aviation intelligence report entitled: The Gravitics Situation.


Unfortunately, due to the militaries TOP SECRET classification, Townsend Brown’s work has not appeared in any physics or science publications that can be accessed.

Article Reveals Government Research

Because of the influence of such pioneers as Tesla and T. Townsend Brown, the research and development of antigravity devices has been ongoing for a number of years. The June 1957 issue of Mechanic’s Illustrated featured an article by G. Harry Stine entitled: Conquest of Space. Stine, the Chief of Navy Range Operations at White Sands Proving Grounds, makes it perfectly clear that the military was extremely interested in antigravity research.

There is a good chance that the rocket will be obsolete for space travel within 50 years. Some of us have been concentrating on the development of the rocket as the possible power plant for outer space propulsion. We’ve fired a lot of rockets and we’ve proved that they will work well in outer space. We’ve also learned a lot about what’s out there by using rockets. And probably we will take the first few faltering steps into space with rocket power plants.

But recent discoveries indicate that the spaceship of the future may be powered by anti-gravity devices. These, instead of using brute force to overcome gravity, will use the force of gravity itself much as an airplane uses the air to make it fly.

Sir William Crookes, the English scientist who developed the cathode-ray tube we now use for television, made extensive investigations of levitation phenomena -a field that once belonged to vaudeville magicians. Scientists, reasoning that if they believed his reports of weird green glows in vacuum tubes they should also

look into Crookes’ levitation studies, have been making slow but steady progress. Others have been investigating the fields of gravitic isotopes, jet electron streams, and the mechanics of the electron shells of atoms.

Townsend T. Brown, an American investigator, has gone even further than that. There are rumors that Brown has developed a real antigravity machine. There are many firms working on the problems of antigravity – the Glenn L.Martin Co., Bell Aircraft, General Electric, Sperry-Rand Corp. and others.

Rumors have been circulating that scientists have built disc airfoils two feet in diameter incorporating a variation of the simple two-plate electrical condenser (capacitor), which charged to a potential of 50,000 volts, has achieved a speed of seventeen feet per second with a total energy input of fifty watts.

A three-foot diameter disc airfoil charged to 150 Kilovolts turned out such an amazing performance that the whole thing was immediately classified. Flame-jet generators, making use of the electrostatic charge discovered in rocket exhausts, have been developed which will supply charges up to 15 million volts.

Several important things have been discovered with regard to gravity propulsion. For one, the propulsive force doesn’t act on only one part of the ship it is pushing; it acts on all parts within the gravity field created by the gravitic drive. It probably is not limited to the speed of light.

Gravity-powered vehicles have apparently changed direction, accelerated rapidly at very high g’s and stopped abruptly without any heavy stresses being experienced by the measuring devices aboard the vehicle and within the gravity-propulsion field. This control is done by changing the direction, intensity and polarity of the charge on the condenser plates of the drive unit, a fairly simple task for scientists.

Sounds incredible, doesn’t it?


But the information comes from reliable sources. We are licking the problems of gravity. Indications are that we are on the verge of tapping a brand new group of electrical waves which link electricity and gravity. Electronic engineers have taken the electrical coil and used it as a link between electricity and electro-magnetism, thus giving us a science of electromagnetic’s which in turn has given us such things as radio, television, radar and the like.

Now, gravity researchers seem to think that the condenser will open up the science of electrogravitics. Soon we may be able to eliminate gravity as a structural, dynamic and medical problem.

Although we will probably use rocket power to make our first explorations into space, the chances are now pretty good that this will not always be the case. In 50 years we may travel to the moon, the planets or even the stars propelled by the harnessed forces of gravity.

If this seems fantastic, remember that the rocket and the idea of a trip to the moon was fantastic twenty years ago. Fifty years ago the idea of commercial air travel was utter nonsense.

With gravitic spaceships, we may travel to the moon in less than an hour, to the planets in less than a day or to the stars themselves in a matter of months. We may be able to do it in absolute comfort without the problems of zero-gravity or high accelerations.

The idea of the rocket becoming obsolete is not a happy idea, particularly when so much work has been done on rockets. If a better method comes along, why shed tears? After all, our basic goal is to travel and explore in space and it doesn’t make much difference how we do it.

Is Antigravity Already in Use?

Recently an article appeared in Jane’s Aviation Weekly that stated the B-2 Stealth Nuclear-Strike Bomber is in fact, currently using an electrogravitic propulsion system. Paul A. LaViolette has done considerable study on the use of electrogravitic technology by the U.S. Air Force, which has conducted secret Black Project research on the matter since late 1954.

LaViolette contends that electrogravitics may have been put to practical use in the B-2 Advanced Technology Bomber to provide an exotic auxiliary mode of propulsion. This conclusion is based on the recent disclosure that the B-2 charges both its wing leading edge and jet exhaust stream to a high voltage.

Positive ions emitted from its wing leading edge would produce a positively charged parabolic ion sheath ahead of the craft while negative ions injected into it’s exhaust stream would set up a trailing negative space charge with a potential difference in excess of 15 million volts.

According to electrogravitic research carried out by Tesla and T. Townsend Brown, such a differential space charge would set up an artificial gravity field that would induce a reactionless force on the aircraft in the direction of the positive pole.

An electrogravitic drive of this sort could allow the B-2 to function with over-unity propulsion efficiency when cruising at supersonic velocities. On March 9, 1992, Aviation Week And Space Technology magazine made a surprising disclosure that the B-2 electrostatically charges its exhaust stream and the leading edges of its wing-like body.

Those familiar with the research of Tesla in the early 20th century will quickly realize that this is tantamount to stating that the B-2 is able to function as an antigravity aircraft. Aviation Week obtained their information about the B-2 from a small group of renegade west coast scientists and engineers who were formerly associated with black research projects.

In making these disclosures, these scientists broke a code of silence that rivals the Mafia’s. They took the risk because they felt that it was important for economic reasons that efforts be made to declassify certain black technologies for commercial use.

Two of these individuals said that their civil rights had been blatantly abused (in the name of security) either to keep them quiet or to prevent them from leaving the tightly controlled black research and development community. Although the scientists mentioned nothing about electrogravitics in their Aviation Week disclosure about the B-2, they did admit to the existence of very dramatic, classified technologies applicable to aircraft control and propulsion.

They were especially hesitant to discuss these projects, noting that they are very secret. One of them commented:

“Besides, it would take about 20 hours to explain the principles, and very few people would understand them anyway.”

Apparently what he meant is that this aircraft control and propulsion technology is based on principles that go beyond what is currently known and understood by most academic physicists. That is with the exception of two geniuses who developed the original ideas for high voltage electric drives decades ago.

It must be also considered that the B-2 is now no longer the only aircraft to use such technologies. Since that time an entire generation of black budget secret aircraft may have been developed with electrogravitic systems.

Art Bells Mysterious Metal -The Key to Antigravity

The suggestion that UFOs could be manmade flying machines using exotic technologies is not new to the study of unidentified flying objects. In the 1950’s several researchers in Europe claimed that Tesla and Marconi had secretly built and tested operational antigravity aircraft. Using electrogravitic drives, these experimental aircraft were eventually based out of a secret location in South America.

Allegedly, Nazi Germany got a hold of this technology and produced several antigravity flying saucers of their own. Fortunately, by the time Hitler decided to dedicate more time and funds to the Nazi flying saucer project, the war was almost over for the Germans. Of course by that time Tesla had passed away, but it is almost certain that he would have been horrified by the use of his invention by the Germans.

Early evidence for these anecdotal tales was scant and consisted almost entirely of discovered research papers and a few photos of similarly shaped UFOs. As has been already noted in this book, early UFO contactees such as George Adamski and Howard Menger witnessed and even photographed UFOs that bore a striking resemblance to the small discs built by T. Townsend Brown.

Could these UFOs actually be manmade machines flown by humans? Or were extraterrestrials flying around in spacecraft utilizing similar technology as that discovered by Tesla and Brown?

In 1996, late night radio host Art Bell received a package containing bits of metal that the sender claimed was taken from the crashed UFO found near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. Could these unassuming pieces of metal be the evidence that proved the reality of UFOs and their use of electrogravitic technology? The pieces of metal seemed almost too good to be true and Bell was at first skeptical because of similar past hoaxes involving alleged parts from UFOs.

Bell sent a few samples to Linda Moulton Howe, who promptly had the metal analyzed. Using Wave Dispersive Spectroscopy, It was discovered that the metal was made up of a magnesium zinc alloy with pure bismuth layers. There was a range from 97 to about 97 -1/2 % magnesium and 3% to 2 -1/2 % zinc in each of those 100 to 200micron layers of the magnesium zinc, so the metal was almost entirely magnesium with about 3% zinc.

The pure bismuth layers were one to four microns thick in a slightly wavy pattern and nothing else but bismuth was found. No oxygen was found, no zirconium, no other elements -just these three.

High energy experiments conducted on the unusual metal indicated a tendency for lateral movement. Unfortunately, this research has not resulted in any solid conclusions at this time.

After this information was broadcast on Art’s show, Howe received a fax from a listener named Dan who indicated he had professional knowledge that would relate the material to antigravity. He had worked from 1973 to 1980 for an organization called Aeronautical Systems Division at Edwards Air Force Base in California with some assignments at Wright Patterson in Ohio.

Dan received bachelors degrees in physics, aerospace engineering and computer science from California Polytechnic State University, a masters degrees in computer science and aerospace engineering from the University of California at Berkley and then received his Ph.D. in physics in 1974 after he had already begun work as a civilian scientist for the Air Force.

Dan told Howe that he had been involved in aeronautical engineering and evaluations when he first saw metal similar to what was sent to Art bell. The metal supposedly was used in a electrogravitic capacity.


In the case of bismuth, its basically a diamagnetic material which means it tends to repel a magnetic field.

“There were very strange things that were bound with bismuth as basically positive charges were added to it, you know, putting a field, a positive electron field into the bismuth,” Dan said to Howe.


“As a matter of fact they were very dramatic, some of the things that they found. A lot of this goes all the way back to 1917 with Nikola Tesla and his discoveries of electrical fields and gravity.”

Howe wanted to know what was the most dramatic thing that would happen as the positive flow was increased into bismuth. Dan’s answer was that basically there would be a mass reduction to the point where it could come to zero and actually rise into the air, creating a lifting body.

A now defunct UFO group in England claimed that one of their members had conducted experiments with dissimilar metals in the 1970’s. He used two disks of the same dimension and thickness but of two different materials, copper and zinc. The disks were kept very close together and rotated in opposite directions. The claim was they levitated when spun, though the comment did not specify the requirement for high voltage as in the case of the Biefeld/Brown effect.

It was simply rotation of mass which is more consistent with Otis T. Carr, Bruce DePalma and Dr. Harold Aspden, with their claims of anomalous inertial or gravitic effects associated with rotating mass.

An interesting story was told at the recent Low Level Energy Conference by Michael Roberts, President of the Association for Push Gravity Research. One day a few years ago, he got a phone call at his home in Waco. It was from a fellow who had stopped in Waco and wanted to meet Michael at a local mall.

Michael drove out to the mall and the man was parked, in his late model Jeep in a remote section of the parking lot. They shook hands and talked a bit. The man said he would like to show Michael what he had been working on.

The Jeep engine was off, the vehicle was put in neutral and was not braked in anyway. Michael was asked to push the vehicle. He did so with both hands, meeting an expected amount of resistance before he got it moving.

The man got in and braked the vehicle. He then showed Michael four mystery boxes (each about 12″ x 6″ x 4″), mounted in the top of each wheel well of the Jeep. Each box had an electrical cable that led under the hood. Michael was not allowed to see under the hood.

Immediately after the push test, the man got in the Jeep and flicked a toggle switch which had been installed under the dashboard. Michael was then asked to push the Jeep again, this time it moved with the light touch of one hand. The man would say nothing about how this miracle was accomplished, he just wanted to show Michael that it was possible to achieve an antigravity effect using electricity.

One possible explanation may be that the four boxes acted to provide a stabilized buoyancy type field, like pontoons on a boat. The use of only one would deflect the incoming gravity in one localized area, thus creating an imbalance. Whereas one unit over each wheel would equally distribute the deflection around the center of mass of the Jeep.

The book Occult Ether Physics: Testa’s Hidden Space Propulsion System And The Conspiracy To Conceal It, concentrates on the 19th century Aether science leading up to Tesla’s discovery of electro-propulsion. Tesla’s holy grail was to build his electric flying machine, and to draw some of the environmental energy out of the cosmos.

This plan involved a theory of radioactivity under development by Tesla in the 1890s, which entirely presaged and conflicted with currently accepted Relativism, quantum mechanics, and nuclear energy theories. To Tesla, so-called atomic energy was in fact the result of environmental energy emanating from the cosmos, and made known to us via radioactive matter. This matter, Tesla said, had the peculiar property of resonating and reacting with ubiquitous cosmic radiation.

The cosmic radiation of which Tesla spoke was of much higher frequency than what we call radioactive emanations. Tesla believed that these were the result of a step-down process, in which certain peculiar matter reacts to and converts ubiquitous, omnidirectional cosmic radiation.

Today, we call this zero point radiation (ZPR), from higher frequencies, to lower, more useful and appropriate frequencies, such as gamma, x-ray, ultraviolet, visible, infrared radiation, as well as magnetism and even electrical current. These step-down frequencies are much easier to detect and measure than the ZPR.

The existence of the ZPR was well known to Tesla in the 1890s, but it was not until recently that it became scientifically accepted as a proven fact. This radiation is of such high frequency that it normally passes through space, the earth, and our bodies without harm or incident, in constant equilibrium, because its short wavelengths do not normally react or resonate with the atoms of most matter.

It is radioactive matter, according to Tesla, which has a peculiar atomic structure which reacts with this radiation to produce radioactivity. Atomic energy, to Tesla, comes from the ZPR, not atoms. If a lump of radium could be shielded from the effects of the ZPR, said Tesla, it would show no radioactivity.

Most naturally radioactive elements are dense and unstable, that is, they are said by the Relativists to decay as radiation is emitted, to elements of lower atomic numbers. The Relativists, with whom Tesla vehemently disagreed, believe that naturally radioactive elements spontaneously lose mass in the process of such decay, so that the energy released as radioactivity, is equivalent to the lost mass according to Einstein’s equation, E=mc2.

If non-radioactive elements are converted into radioactive elements by the forces of nature, what are these processes? In a New York Times article of July 11, 1937 (pg.13, col.2), in one of Tesla’s famous birthday announcements, Tesla stated that he had developed a process for the manufacture of radium (transmutation from other elements), which was so efficient that it could be sold for $1.00 per pound.

He also announced that he had absolutely developed a system for the interstellar transmission of energy. He said he had been working in several laboratories, but refused to disclose their locations.

His working model, he said,

“…employs more than three dozen of my inventions. It is a complex apparatus, an agglomeration of parts. It could convey several thousand units of horsepower to other planets, regardless of the distance. Traveling through a channel of less than one-half of one-millionth of a centimeter.”

Further, he said,

“This is not an experiment. I have built, demonstrated and used it. Only a little time will pass before I can give it to the world.”

These facts demonstrate that even in his 80s, Tesla was involved in secret research at several undisclosed laboratories, on technology which even today remains highly classified. Technology that is only now being fully understood and secretly utilized.

The Tesla Flying Saucer

Bill Jones, writing for The UFO Enigma, the newsletter for the UFO Study Group of greater St. Louis, comments that Tesla did the basic research for constructing electromagnetic field lift-and-drive aircraft/spacecraft. From 1891 to 1893, he gave a set of lectures and demonstrations to groups of electrical engineers.

As part of each show, Tesla stood in the middle of the stage, using his 6′ 6″ height, with an assistant on either side, each seven feet away. All three men wore thick cork or rubber shoe soles to avoid being electrically grounded. Each assistant held a wire, part of a high voltage, low current circuit.

When Tesla raised his arms to each side, violet colored electricity jumped harmlessly across the gaps between the men. At high voltage and frequency in this arrangement, electricity flows over a surface, even the skin, rather than into it. This is a basic circuit which could be used by aircraft/spacecraft.

The hull is best made double, of thin, machinable, slightly flexible ceramic. This becomes a good electrical insulator, has no fire danger, resists any damaging effects of severe heat and cold, and has the hardness of armor, besides being easy for magnetic fields to pass through.

The inner hull is covered on it’s outside by wedge shaped thin metal sheets of copper or aluminum, bonded to the ceramic. Each sheet is three to four feet wide at the horizontal rim of the hull and tapers to a few inches wide at the top of the hull for the top set of metal sheets, or at the bottom for the bottom set of sheets. Each sheet is separated on either side from the next sheet by 1 or 2 inches of uncovered ceramic hull.

The top set of sheets and bottom set of sheets are separated by about 6 inches of uncovered ceramic hull around the horizontal rim of the hull. The outer hull protects these sheets from being short-circuited by wind blown metal foil (Air Force radar confusing chaff), heavy rain or concentrations of gasoline or kerosene fumes.

If unshielded, fuel fumes could be electrostatically attracted to the hull sheets, burn and form carbon deposits across the insulating gaps between the sheets, causing a short-circuit. The space, the outer hull with a slight negative charge, would absorb hits from micro-meteorites and cosmic rays (protons moving at near the speed of light).

Any danger of this type that doesn’t already have a negative electric charge would get a negative charge in hitting the outer hull, and be repelled by the metal sheets before it could hit the inner hull. The hull can be made in a variety of shapes; sphere, football, disc, or streamlined rectangle or triangle, as long as these metal sheets,

“I am now planning aerial machines devoid of sustaining planes, ailerons, propellers and other external attachments, which will be capable of immense speeds.”

The power plant for this machine can be a nuclear fission or fusion reactor for long range and long-term use to run a steam engine which turns the generators. A short range machine can use a hydrogen oxygen fuel cell to run a low-voltage motor to turn the generators, occasionally recharging by hovering next to high voltage power lines and using antennas mounted on the outer hull to take in the electricity. The short-range machine can also have electricity beamed to it from a generating plant on a long-range aircraft/spacecraft or on the ground.

One standard for the generators is to have the same number of magnets as field coils. Tesla’s preferred design was a thin disc holding 480 magnets with 480 field coils wired in series surrounding it in close tolerance. At 50 revolutions per minute, it produces 19,400 cycles per second.

The electricity is fed into a number of large capacitors, one for each metal sheet. An automatic switch, adjustable in timing by the pilot, closes, and as the electricity jumps across the switch, back and forth, it raises it’s own frequency a switch being used for each capacitor.

The electricity goes into a Tesla transformer; again, one transformer for each capacitor. In an oil tank to insulate the windings and for cooling, and supported internally by wood, or plastic, pipe and fittings, each Tesla transformer looks like a short wider pipe that is moved along a longer, narrower pipe by an insulated non-electric cable handle. The short pipe, the primary, is six to ten windings (loops) of wire connected in series to the long pipe. The secondary is 460 to 600 windings, at the low voltage and frequency end.

The insulated non-electric cable handle is used through a set of automatic controls to move the primary coil to various places on the secondary coil. This is the frequency control. The secondary coil has a low frequency and voltage end and a maximum voltage and frequency end. The greater the frequency the electricity, the more it pushes against the earth’s electrostatic and electromagnetic fields.

The electricity comes out of the transformer at the high voltage end and goes by wire through the ceramic hull to the wide end of the metal sheet. The electricity jumps out on and flows over the metal sheet, giving off a very strong electromagnetic field, controlled by the transformer. At the narrow end of the metal sheet, most of the high-voltage push having been given off, the electricity goes back by wire through the hull to a circuit breaker box (emergency shut off).

In bright sunlight, the aircraft/spacecraft may seem surrounded by hot air, a slight magnetic distortion of the light. In semi-darkness and night, the metal sheets glow, even through the thin ceramic outer hull, with different colors. The visible light is a by-product of the electricity flowing over the metal sheets, according to the frequencies used.

Descending, landing or just starting to lift from the ground, the transformer primaries are near the secondary weak ends and therefore, the bottom set of sheets glow a misty red. Red may also appear at the front of the machine when it is moving forward fast, lessening resistance up front.

Orange appears for slow speed. Orange-yellow are for airplane-type speeds. Green and blue are for higher speeds. With a capacitor addition, making it oversized for the circuit, the blue becomes bright white, like a searchlight, with possible risk of damaging the metal sheets involved.

The highest visible frequency is violet, like Tesla’s stage demonstrations, used for the highest speed along with the bright white. The colors are nearly coherent, of a single frequency, like a laser. A machine built with a set of super conducting magnets would simplify and reduce electricity needs from a vehicle’s transformer circuits to the point of flying along efficiently and hovering with very little waste of electricity.

When Tesla was developing arc lights to run on alternating current, there was a bothersome high-pitched whine, whistle, or buzz, due to the electrodes rapidly heating and cooling. Tesla put this noise in the ultrasonic range with the special transformer already mentioned. The aircraft/spacecraft gives off such noises when working at low frequencies.

Timing is important in the operation of this machine. For every three metal sheets, when the middle one is briefly turned off, the sheet on either side is energized, giving off the magnetic field. The next instant, the middle sheet is energized, while the sheet on either side is briefly turned off.

There is a time delay in the capacitors recharging themselves, so at any time, half of all the metal sheets are energized and the other half are recharging, alternating all around the inner hull. This balances the machine, giving it very good stability. This balance is less when fewer of the circuits are in use.

At a fairly close range, the aircraft/spacecraft produces heating of persons and objects on the ground; but by hovering over an area at low altitude for maybe five or ten minutes, the machine also produces a column of very cold air down to the ground. As air molecules get into the strong magnetic fields that the machine is transmitting out, the air molecules become polarized and from lines, or strings, of air molecules.

The normal movement of the air is stopped, and there is suddenly a lot more room for air molecules in this area, so more air pours in. This expansion and the lack of normal air motion make the area intensely cold. This is also the reason that the aircraft/spacecraft can fly at supersonic speeds without making sonic booms.

As air flows over the hull, top and bottom, the air molecules form lines as they go through the magnetic fields of the metal sheet circuits. As the air molecules are left behind, they keep their line arrangements for a short time, long enough to cancel out the sonic boom shock waves.

Outside the earth’s magnetic field, another propulsion system must be used, which relies on the first. You may have read of particle accelerators, or cyclotrons, or atom smashers. A particle accelerator is a circular loop of pipe that, in cross-section, is oval.

In a physics laboratory, most of the air in it is pumped out. The pipe loop is given a static electric charge, a small amount of hydrogen or other gas is given the same electric charge so the particles won’t stick to the pipe. A set of electromagnets all around the pipe loop turn on and off, one after the other, pushing with one magnetic pole and pulling with the next, until those gas particles are racing around the pipe loop at nearly the speed of light.

Centrifugal force makes the particles speed closer to the outside edge of the pipe loop, still within the pipe. The particles break down into electrons, or light and other wavelengths, protons or cosmic rays, and neutrons if more than hydrogen is put in the accelerator.

At least two particle accelerators are used to balance each other and counter each other’s tendency to make the craft spin. Otherwise, the machine would tend to want to start spinning, following the direction of the force being applied to the particles. The accelerators push in opposite directions.

The high speed particles go out through straight lengths of pipe, charged like the loops and in speeding out into space, push the machine along. Doors control which pipes the particles leave from. This allows very long range acceleration and later deceleration at normal (earth) gravity. This avoids the severe problems of weightlessness, including lowered physical abilities of the crew. It is possible to use straight-line particle accelerators, even as few as one per machine, but these don’t seem as able to get the best machine speed for the least amount of particles pushed out.

Using a constant acceleration of 32.2 feet per second provides earth normal gravity in deep space and only two gravities of stress in leaving the earth’s gravity field. It takes, not counting air resistance, 18 minutes, 58.9521636 seconds to reach the 25,000 miles per hour speed to leave the earth’s gravity field.

A shortwave radio can be used to find the exact frequencies that an aircraft/spacecraft is using, for each of the colors it may show, a color television can show the same overall color frequency that the nearby, but not extremely close, craft is using. This is limited in its use, as a machine traveling at the speed of a jet airliner may broadcast in a frequency range usually used for radar sets.

The craft circuits would tend to override lower voltage electric circuits within and near their electromagnetic fields. One source briefly mentioned a 1941 incident, where a shortwave radio was used to override automobile ignition systems, up to three miles away.


How many UFO encounters have been reported in which automobile ignition systems have suddenly stopped?

Tesla’s Connection to Project Rainbow

Nikola Tesla has recently been the subject of controversy due to the claims of Al Bielek and Preston Nichols. These men have reported in a number of books and articles that Tesla was involved in one of the most disputed mysteries of World War II, The Philadelphia Experiment.

The Philadelphia Experiment, otherwise known as Project Rainbow, was allegedly an attempt by the Navy to create a ship that could not be detected by magnetic mines and or radar. However, its results were said to be far different and much more dangerous than the Navy ever expected.

In the early 1930’s, the University of Chicago investigated the possibility of invisibility through the use of electricity. This project was later moved to Princeton’s Institute of Advanced Studies where it was named Project Rainbow (project invisibility), and was founded in 1936.

Nikola Tesla was named Director of the project. Tesla was given anything that was required by him for the testing of the project. Tesla required and was given a navy battle ship on which the experiments were to be tested. The first test of invisibility occurred in 1940 and was slated as a full success when a navy ship with no crew on board vanished from this plane of existence.

The basic design, had two large Tesla coils (electromagnets) placed on each hull of the ship. The coils are turned on in a special sequence and their magnetic force is so powerful that they warp gravity itself.

Based in part on Tesla’s earlier electrogravitic experiments, Project Rainbow proved to be far more dangerous than was originally conceived.


Al Bielek claims that Tesla began to have doubts about the safety of the experiment due to his communications with extraterrestrials.

“Tesla had a press announcement in 1923 where he stated he was talking with ET’s off planet. Now after he retired from RCA he maintained a laboratory in his living quarters at the Hotel New Yorker. Unknown to most people he had a second laboratory which apparently was his main one on top of the Waldorf Astoria on the top floor and both penthouse towers.

“He maintained a transmitter setup on the Waldorf; and his receiving setup, his receiving antennas and receivers which had been built by RCA under his direction, were on the New Yorker. And I know two people who said they were working with Tesla, during that period, that he was using that equipment, he was talking with somebody, virtually every day, and one of them was emphatic: it was someone off planet. In plain language, he was communicating with ET’s.”

Tesla stated that there would be a serious problem with personnel if anyone were to enter the ship while the gauss coils were turned on and the Electro Magnetic radiation would damage them within this reality. He said in numerous occasions that he was in contact with extraterrestrials and that the ET’s had confirmed that there would be a problem with the experiment.

Tesla wanted to clarify the problem before any farther experiments would begin. However the Navy said no, they were fighting a war and wanted immediate results. On the second experiment, Tesla, fearing that there would be people hurt or killed in the experiment, decided to sabotage the 1942 test. He de-tuned the equipment so nothing would work and the test failed.


In July 1943, the destroyer U.S.S. Eldridge pulled into the Delaware Bay area for a United States Naval experiment that involved the task of making the ship invisible using Tesla technology.


The project’s official name was Project Rainbow, but is more commonly known as the Philadelphia Experiment



Scientific Proof of a Potential Alternative Energy Source Dates Back 25,000 Years.

Radiocarbon dating at the Bosnian Archaeological site, the most active pyramid site in the world dates the pyramid complex back 25,000 years and also has released scientific evidence supporting the theory that the pyramids around the world were used as an energy source. The recent study reveals an energy beam, 13 feet in radius that transmits an unexplainable electromagnetic signal measuring 28 kilohertz coming from the center of the Pyramid of the Sun unexplainable by our science. The potential for a viable source for alternative energy from our ancient past should not be suppressed like Nikola Tesla’s work because it cannot be metered and monetized. The New Era Times presents a webinar on Oct. 4,5,7 by Dr. Sam Osmanagich, founder of the Bosnian Pyramid where he will discuss how pyramids have now been found on every continent on Earth and prove—beyond a shadow of a doubt—that pyramids were built by ancient civilizations with far greater technology than we now possess and that they were used to produce energy. The placement of the tens of thousands of pyramids around the globe on the earth’s energy grid, aligned with the universal energy field is a lost science that is now being rediscovered. This science can only be explained when we reexamine much of what we have been taught about history and open our minds to unfold the truth.

Radiocarbon dating that proves the Bosnian Pyramid Complex dates back at least 25,000 years has been revealed by an international team of scientists led by Dr. Sam Osmanagich. Discovered in 2005, the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun Archaeological Park, which houses the largest pyramid in the world, is now the most active archaeological site on the planet. The team’s findings also reveal an energy beam, 13 feet in radius that transmits an unexplainable electromagnetic signal measuring 28 kilohertz coming from the center of the Pyramid of the Sun. This phenomenon has been independently confirmed by physicist Dr. Slobodan Mizdrak, Ph.D. from Croatia, professor Paolo Debertolis, anthropologist from University of Trieste in Italy, sound engineer Heikki Savolainen from Finland and electrical engineer GoranMarjanovic from Serbia.

The energy beam is theorized by Dr. Osmanagich as the reason the pyramids were built; to provide ancient civilizations a powerful source of clean energy. This is already a widely supported theory set forth by the book “The Giza Power Plant” by Christopher Dunn published in 1998. The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun is 30% larger than the largest pyramid at Giza and recent excavation has uncovered an extensive pre-historical underground labyrinth system, further evidence supporting the power plant theory.

Is it possible that the fossil fuel based energy system we now rely on could have been prevented if inventor Nicola Tesla’s work on free energy hadn’t been suppressed? Tesla’s (1856-1943) patented free energy methods were rejected due to their inability to be metered and monetized. “We urgently need to change our mistaken point of view that our ancestors were stupid and accept that they had an advanced understanding of the fabric of nature and the universe, just like Nikola Tesla, whose ideas were suppressed as they did not and do not fit in the reigning economic model,” states Phillip Coppens, author and investigative journalist. “The pyramids are proof that our ancestors knew and worked with an energy technology that we are now finally able to measure, but are still short of fully understanding.”Coppens along with Klaus Dona of Austria and dozens of speakers attended the International Conference Bosnia Pyramid in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina which is held annually to release findings to the public.

The method commonly used to record dates of artifacts and structures is radiocarbon dating which can accurately record dates back 58,000 years. It was pioneered in 1949 at the University of Chicago by William Libby who has since been awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work.Italian archaeologists Dr. Ricarrdo Brett and NiccoloBisconti discovered an organic material on the top of the concrete blocks that cover the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun. Carbon dating was performed in the Lab in Kiev, Ukraine with astonishing results: 24,800 years +/- 200 years which gives the minimum age of the pyramid structure.

Overwhelming evidence, supported by scientific research from all over the archeological community proves that our recorded history is wrong concerning ancient cultures which in turn changes religion, science and academics.The pyramid structures that were built in Bosnia and across the globe over 10,000 years ago cannot be duplicated by modern science and machinery in the 21st century and there is no explanation for who could have built them in our recorded history.

“We realize that this site changes our knowledge of history and as such the findings will need to withstand harsh scrutiny. Our inter-disciplinary scientific team carefully utilizes legitimate scientific research methodology, often having tests done from two or more separate laboratories,” explained Dr. Osmanagich, PhD. “Despite some initial skepticism, we now have a world-wide team of hundreds of thought leaders from numerous scientific disciplines including archeologists, geophysicists, chemical engineers, physicists, electrical engineers, and mathematicians gathering scientific evidence to find the answers.”

The reason the Bosnian Archaelogical Park is so active is that unlike the Egyptian Pyramids and Dr. Zahi Hawass’ team, where access to information was carefully guarded, this site’s policy is open and inviting. “We want to share our findings in order to bring out the truth about history and knowledge of clean energy,” explains Osmanagich.

hello all, as the month of October is breast cancer awareness month.

Breast Cancer Risks Acquired in Pregnancy May Pass to Next 3 Generations.

What a woman eats and is exposed to during pregnancy can impact not only the future health of her child, but also that of her grandchildren and even great-grandchildren.

It’s difficult to really get your mind around this concept, as it is quite astonishing to think that what your grandmother or great grandmother was exposed to during pregnancy may have an impact on your health today… but that is what the research is showing…

Breast Cancer Risks May Carry Over for Three Generations

In a study on rats, those exposed to chemicals or foods that raise estrogen levels during pregnancy produce daughters that have a higher than normal risk for breast cancer – and that risk is passed on to the next two generations. It was not genetic mutations that were passed on, but rather epigenetic alterations that influence the expression of your genes.

The researchers analyzed DNA methylation, a normal process that allows cells to perform different actions by turning gene expression off. The rat descendants with increased breast cancer risk had “several hundred common DNA regions that were methylated differently than in a control group, providing statistically convincing evidence that breast cancer risk can be transmitted via epigenetic means.”1

Dramatic Impact of Diet on Multiple Generations Revealed in the 1930s…

Starting in the 1930’s, Francis M. Pottenger, Jr., M.D., conducted a now classic study on cats, which showed the power of nutrition in impacting multiple generations. Over a period of 10 years, Pottenger conducted studies involving upwards of 900 cats, which were fed either a healthy raw-food diet or a “junk-food” diet consisting mostly of cooked meat.

The cats on the raw-food diet thrived while those eating the cooked meat developed health problems – and the effects persisted in their offspring. While the cooked-meat cats of the first generation developed degenerative diseases later in life (and reportedly became lazy), the second-generation cats started to get sick in mid-life.

By the third generation, the cats developed degenerative diseases very early in life, had a shorter lifespan, and some were born blind. Many of the third-generation cats could not reproduce, and those that did produced even sicker offspring that often died within six months. By the fourth generation, the “junk food” cats died off completely.

You can read the details for yourself in the book Pottenger’s Cats: A Study in Nutrition – the fact of the matter is, epigenetic changes have been found to be passed down through generations for decades now…

In 2010, research presented at the 101st 2010 meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research in Washington DC similarly showed that when pregnant rats were fed an unhealthy diet, both their daughters and granddaughters proved to be at greater risk of breast cancer.2 Even if the daughters of the first generation of rats ate healthy, their offspring – the third generation – were still at greater risk of disease.

Additional research has shown that rat fetuses that received poor nutrition while in the womb experienced epigenetic changes that primed them for a nutrition-poor environment once they were born, thereby increasing their risk of health problems ranging from diabetes and heart disease to obesity3 – and it’s been shown now that these changes may last for two generations or more…

Are Rising Breast Cancer Rates the Product of Modern-Day “Food”?

It’s easy to forget that the processed, pre-packaged foods and fast food restaurants of today are actually a radical change in terms of the history of food production. The modern frozen food business didn’t begin until the mid 1920’s when the General Seafoods Company set up shop and began selling crudely frozen fish filets, and fast food restaurants didn’t get a foothold until after World War II.

So it could be that we’re now looking right at these generational effects, caused by our grandparents’ – and for the younger generations, great grandparents’ – dietary changes.

If that’s the case, then we have even more incentive to make drastic changes, and soon, because the disease trends we’re now seeing are only going to get worse as much of the processed foods consumed today are not even food-based! Who knows what kind of genetic mutations and malfunctions we’re creating for our future generations when a MAJORITY of our diet consists of highly processed and artificial foods.

Exposures to Synthetic Estrogens on the Rise

Substances that mimic estrogen in your body, and may increase breast cancer risk, are found liberally in the modern-day diet, in soy products, bovine growth hormones (rBGH, found in dairy prodcuts), and even in food additives like the preservative propyl gallate, and 4-hexylresorcinol, which is used to prevent discoloration in shrimp and other shellfish.

But you’re also exposed to estrogen-mimicking chemicals from plastic food containers, personal care products, non-stick cookware, and other common sources.

The problem is so bad that researchers have expressed concern that children may be exposed to so many synthetic hormone-mimicking chemicals they could potentially overtake the actions of his or her natural hormones! And considering pregnant women are also exposed to these chemicals, the effects in utero cannot be ignored.

For instance, parabens – hormone-mimicking chemicals that are widely used in personal care products like shampoo, lotion, deodorant, shaving gel and cosmetics – have been detected in breast cancer tissues at concentrations up to 1 million times higher than the estrogen (estradiol) levels naturally found in human breast tissue.4 And, the presence of paraben esters have been detected in 99 percent of breast cancer tissues sampled…5

As breast cancer rates continue to climb, it’s quite clear that our future generations could pay the biggest price of all if our food and environment continue to be contaminated with synthetic estrogens and other toxins.

The Good News: You Can Influence the Expression of Your Genes

Even if you know your mother (or grandmother) had a terrible diet while pregnant, or was exposed to a significant amount of synthetic estrogens or other toxins, it doesn’t mean the die has been cast for your health.

As you age, your genome does not change but your epigenome changes dramatically, especially during critical periods of life, such as adolescence. It is influenced by lifestyle, diet, and physical and emotional stresses – how you respond to everything that happens in your environment, from climate change to childhood abuse.

The secret is in the methyl groups that modulate the DNA in your body, which is the realm of the epigenome. When a gene is turned off epigenetically, the DNA has usually been “methylated,” the biological equivalent of being silenced. When methyl groups adhere to a segment of DNA, they inhibit the gene from being expressed.

For the most part you do not manifest disease merely by a defective gene, but by the regulation or expression of your gene by epigenetic influences. Even if you inherited a certain increased disease risk from your mother or grandmother, you can therefore change it.

How to Optimize Your Genetic Expression

A healthy diet is a wonderful start. For instance, we all have tumor suppressor genes, and these genes are capable of stopping cancer cells in their tracks. These genes are present in every cell in your body, but so are proteins called “histones.” As Dr. Jean-Pierre Issa at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center explained, histones can “hug” DNA so tightly that it becomes “hidden from view for the cell.”6 If a tumor suppressor gene is hidden, it cannot be utilized, and in this way too much histone will “turn off” these cancer suppressors, and allow cancer cells to proliferate.

Now here’s where epigenetics comes in… certain foods, such as broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, garlic, and onions contain substances that act as histone inhibitors, which essentially block the histone, allowing your tumor suppressor genes to activate and fight cancer. By regularly consuming these foods, you are naturally supporting your body’s ability to fight tumors.

Certain alternative oncologists also tap directly into the epigenetic mechanism, such as Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, who uses a three-pronged approach to cancer based primarily on nutrition and detoxification, and Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, who treats cancer with a gene-targeted approach. His treatment uses non-toxic peptides and amino acids, known as antineoplastons, which act as genetic switches that turn your tumor suppressor genes “on.”

If you’re ready to address your dietary choices, read through my comprehensive and recently revised nutrition plan, which will give you tips and tools for eating healthy, dealing with stress, and living a lifestyle that will support your epigenetic health.

You can also turn your genes off and on with your emotions too. Many, if not most people carry emotional scars — traumas that can adversely affect health. Using techniques like energy psychology, you can go in and correct the trauma and help regulate your genetic expression. My favorite technique for this is the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).

October is breast cancer awareness month. Most of the breast cancer can be detecte mt BSE( breast self examination) and my mammography. So, don’t panic if you find a lunp in your breast. Consult an expert.

The facts are clear. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among African-American women. And black women’s breast cancer mortality rates are higher than their white female counterparts. After lung cancer, breast cancer is the highest killing cancer among black women.

Unfortunately, the solution to this problem is multifaceted. Black women’s high breast cancer mortality rates are linked to poor access to medical care, inadequate utilization of early detection precautions, differences in treatment, and differences in tumor characteristics compared to their white female counterparts.

In terms of early detection, while it’s essential that every woman learns how to perform an efficient breast self-exam, mammograms are also important. However, it’s also an option that many women fear.

Let’s calm your worries. Here are nine things you should know about mammograms.

1. The Definition. A mammogram is a picture of the inside of the breast. There are two types of mammograms available to patients: a screening mammogram and a diagnostic mammogram.

2. How a Screening Mammogram Works. Screening mammograms usually involve two sets of images of each breast. The images can detect tumors not felt during your self-exam, and also finds microcalcifications (tiny deposits of calcium) that could indicate the presence of breast cancer. Screening mammograms are done with routine checkups, meaning you don’t need to discover an abnormality first before receiving one.

3. How a Diagnostic Mammogram Works.Diagnostic mammograms take longer than screening mammograms because more images are taken to obtain views of the breast from different angles. Usually, the patient is no longer seeking precautionary measures, but looking to know more about a lump, sign, or symptom that already has been found. Signs of breast cancer may include pain, skin thickening, nipple discharge, and a change in breast size or shape. However, these signs also can be non-cancerous, and diagnostic mammograms can help doctors make accurate diagnoses.

4. The Good Side of Screening Mammograms. Early detection of breast cancer means that treatment can start earlier, and possibly before the disease has spread. Studies have proven that screening mammography can help reduce the numbers of deaths from breast cancer among women ages 40 to 74, and especially those over age 50. However, studies have not proven that there is a benefit from regular screening mammography in women under age forty.


5. The Bad Side of Screening Mammograms. Fast-growing or aggressive cancers may have already spread to other parts of the body, regardless of whether or not a screening mammogram has been taken. There’s also the possibility of false-negative results — when mammograms appear normal even though breast cancer is present. Screening mammograms miss up to 20 percent of breast cancers present at the time of screening, mainly due to dense and fatty breasts. Younger women are more likely to have denser breasts.

False-positive results also have occurred when radiologists conclude that the mammogram is abnormal but no cancer is actually present. Again, this is more common in younger women. All abnormal mammograms should be followed up with additional testing: diagnostic mammograms, ultrasound, and/or biopsy. There’s also the risk of radiation exposure, as with all radiology. And repeated x-rays and radiology exams have the potential to cause cancer. The radiation exposure of resulting from mammograms is very low, thus the benefits tend to outweigh the risk.

6. The Best Age to Begin Screening Mammograms. Women age 40 and older should receive screening mammograms every 1 to 2 years. But women who have a personal or family history of breast cancer should talk with their health care providers and decide whether or not to have mammograms before the age of 40 and if so, how often.


7. How Much Do Mammograms Cost? Unfortunately, the cost of screening mammograms varies by state, facility, and insurance coverage. Thankfully, most states have laws that require health insurance companies to reimburse all or part of the cost of screening mammograms. If you’re insured, contact your insurance company and mammography facility for information about cost and coverage. Women over the age of 40 with Medicare can get a free screening mammogram each year, and Medicare will pay for one baseline mammogram for female beneficiaries between the ages of 35 and 39. Uninsured women can get free or low-cost mammograms through calling the National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Information Service (CIS) at 1-800-232-4636.

8. Where Can You Get a High-Quality Mammogram? Women can get high-quality mammograms at breast clinics, hospital radiology departments, private radiology offices, and doctors’ offices. Find a facility using the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

9. Know Your Legal Protections. The Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) is a Federal law designed to ensure that mammography is safe and reliable. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or an FDA-approved Certifiying State must certify all mammography facilities. The facility must have mammography equipment that is tested periodically, employ trained personnel to administer tests and interpret data, and have a quality assurance program. They also must have a system for following up on abnormal mammographic findings and obtaining biopsy results. Ask your doctor or staff at the local mammography facility about FDA certification before making an appointment. All facilities are required to display their FDA certificate. Women should look for the certificate and check for its expiration date.




Endometriosis Associated with Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

Women with endometriosis had elevated risk for ulcerative colitis and Crohn disease, even more than 20 years after their diagnoses.

Endometriosis is the result of implantation of menstrual products from the endometrium that are not cleared by the immune system. To determine whether endometriosis is associated with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) — also an autoimmune-related disorder — investigators in Denmark conducted a nationwide cohort study involving 37,661 women (mean age, 38.6 years) hospitalized with endometriosis during a 40-year period.

During >492,000 person-years of follow-up, the standardized incidence ratio was 1.5 for ulcerative colitis and 1.6 for Crohn disease. The risk for ulcerative colitis was highest among women diagnosed with endometriosis between the ages of 25 and 34. The risk for Crohn disease was highest among women diagnosed before age 25. The mean interval between endometriosis diagnosis and diagnosis of IBD was 10.8 years for ulcerative colitis and 9.8 years for Crohn disease. Risks for IBD remained elevated after >20 years of observation and were even higher when the analysis was confined to women with surgically verified endometriosis.

Comment: These data suggest a shared immunologic basis for endometriosis and IBD. Patients with endometriosis and clinical features associated with IBD should undergo gastrointestinal evaluation.

Still No Reason Not to Use Single-Dose Etomidate for RSI in Septic Patients.

This meta-analysis was flawed, and the authors’ conclusion that etomidate use is linked to increased mortality is faulty.

Researchers performed a meta-analysis to assess the effects of single-dose etomidate used for rapid sequence intubation (RSI) on the adrenal axis and mortality in septic patients. They included only studies that were randomized or prospective observational, had a control group, and reported data on mortality and adrenal insufficiency as determined by cosyntropin stimulation testing. Ten studies involving a total of 1623 patients were included in the analysis; of these, five evaluated mortality (865 patients) and seven evaluated adrenal insufficiency (1303 patients). Of the five mortality studies, only two included patients who were randomized to etomidate versus an alternative agent — neither showed a mortality difference. Of the three studies without etomidate randomization, only one reported a mortality difference.

The authors report that patients receiving etomidate had a higher risk of mortality (pooled relative risk, 1.20) and adrenal insufficiency (pooled RR, 1.33).

Comment: The entire mortality effect comes from a single study in which patients were not randomized for etomidate. We reviewed that secondary analysis of etomidate use previously and found it sorely lacking (JW Emerg Med Dec 18 2009). Four of the five mortality studies, including the three with the highest methodology scores, failed to show any effect of single dose etomidate on the primary outcome of mortality. The authors correctly note that “the quality of literature investigating etomidate in severe sepsis and septic shock is limited in both quantitative and qualitative fashions.”

Meta-analyses of methodologically flawed trials are no more valuable than the trials themselves. Until a sufficiently sized, properly randomized, controlled trial of single-dose etomidate shows harm, etomidate remains one of the safest options for RSI, particularly in patients at risk for hypotension.
