|Saturday, January 27, 2007 CONFERENCES REVEAL ENERGY
DISCOVERIES from FORMER SOVIET UNION June 2002 Atlantic Rising
The two Russian scientists were in for a surprise when they set up their experiment in a high-ceilinged concrete laboratory. They had built a meter-wide energy converter whose rotating part carried magnetic rollers similar to those built by John Searl, a British inventor. They wanted to test Searl’s claims to have had a flying disc and a generator that converted energy from surrounding space into electricity. With a special non-magnetic platform underneath, the Russians’ total apparatus weighed 350 kilograms.
When they sped the rotor up to 200 revolutions-per-minute (rpm), instruments showed the platform rising slightly on its vertical slides. Weight loss! At 550 rpm the ammeter in the motor circuit showed zero current being consumed. Using clutches, they disconnected the motor and connected the generator to the converter’s shaft. After the shaft reached a critical speed of 550 rpm, the rotor accelerated sharply. The machine was running itself! It didn’t slow down until they connected the first of ten kilowatt-heating-units as a load.
The strangeness escalated. In an experiment in the dark, they saw a donut-shaped pink-and-blue light around the machine and smelled ozone from ionization of the air. A wavy pattern corresponding to the surface of the rollers was superimposed on the corona. Zones of yellowish-white light appeared, but there were none of the crackling sounds that usually accompany electrical arc discharges.
When the machine was consuming the most power, seven kilowatts, the anomalous weight loss of the platform and its load reached 35 per cent. Was the heavy machine slowly levitating? Further they were astounded to feel a cooling of the surrounding air. Concentric rings of cooled air alternated with normal temperatures. When they tested the surrounding air with sensors, they found rings of “magnetic walls” interspersed with rings of ordinary air rippling outward like waves in a pond, to fifteen meters from their experiment without lessening. Not even Searl had reported measuring such walls.
I met the two, Vladimir Roshchin and Sergei Godin, in Switzerland last year. They were still based at the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow, but had lost their funding and lost possession of the large prototype of their patented energy converter used in that 1993 experiment. Roshchin and Godin later built a smaller version which didn’t lose weight or run itself. That disappointment taught them that size is important in getting the effects, including the magnetic and cool-air encircling “walls”. No existing mainstream physics theories can explain all of the strange effects. This paves the way for new science.
Dr. Anatoli Rykov, chief of an Engineering Seismology lab in Moscow, reported in Alexander Frolov’s magazine New Energy Technologies (www.faraday.ru) that the Godin-Roschin unit rotated the six-kilowatt-output electrical generator for fifteen minutes without using any electrical input. Rykov theorizes that the weight loss comes when the aether is deformed locally opposite to gravity, by the direction of the rotor’s spinning. Roshchin and Godin did find that effects reversed when they reversed direction of the rotor. Rykov concluded “Wide abilities of ether to produce non-limited energy and to travel in space without inertia are open now.”
This year Roshchin and Godin were scheduled to speak at a meeting in Germany, but a source said they have an investor who doesn’t want them to reveal any more research details. Godin and Roshchin earlier tried to interest the American government. Tom Valone (www.integrity-research.org) helped them get in the door at the Department of Energy in January, 2001. A memorandum of agreement resulted, but it appears that no government research was funded.
Valone told the June, 2002, Second Berlin Conference for Innovative Energy Technologies that his institute is trying to inform Washington DC legislators and is organizing a science-and-ethics public forum in November. Although he and other speakers at the European conferences are North Americans, this article will mainly look abroad. Scientists in the former Soviet Union have little money but somehow do cutting-edge research.
Dr. Philipp Kanarev, chairman of Kuban State Agrarian University’s department of theoretical mechanics, Krasnodar, Russia, developed a method of water plasma electrolysis that he sees as the best way to get cheap hydrogen from water. He tells why his 1987 report on it didn’t reach news media nor the open literature about patents. Since his device was developed “at the enterprise of the military industrial complex”, his certificate of invention was stamped “for service use only” and its content was not published openly.
At that time, the focus was on purifying and disinfecting water with the help of the plasma in his reactor. Two years later Drs. Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann announced they had excess energy output during a type of electrolysis. This renewed research efforts behind the former Iron Curtain as well as in the West. In 1996 one of Kanarev’s co-authors on the 1987 certificate published results on the excess energy output from the plasma process. The next year they applied for a patent. Then a full group of Russian scientists tested the device and documented its output. Technical people can read more about Kanarev’s theory in his books, such as Crisis of Theoretical Physics. Results of the plasma-electrolytic experiments were predicted by the theory.
The bottom line for us non-techies is that hydrogen can compete with fossil fuels as an energy carrier. Previously, existing methods of getting hydrogen from water required more power than is produced when hydrogen is burned. Kanarev says it is possible to get ten times more energy output than input, and he calculates that ideally more than 1,500 ampere-hours of electrical energy could be produced from each litre of water. Engineering the lab models into industrial models has been delayed by lack of money, he said this year. He was apparently too wrapped up in his research to attend this year’s Berlin conference, but sent a paper.
Hal Fox of Utah has interviewed scientists in the former Soviet Union. He points out that the high-density charge cluster (HDCC) phenomenon first discovered by Ken Shoulders was also independently found by several others. When the process is refined into a reliable product, HDCCs may be used to harness 30 times more energy than is pulsed into the devices. Fox said his Emerging Energy Marketing Firm is promised enough funding to develop such technologies. They can be used to transmute both liquid and solid high-level radioactive wastes into safer substances. Shoulders received the US patent for HDCC methods, and later Alexander Ilyanok in Belarus and Russian scientists Mesyats and Baraboshkin also discovered charge clusters.
At the Berlin meeting Fox reported another patented Soviet-based invention. A.I. Koldomasov’s device piezo-electrically vibrates a mix of waters through a special dielectric material to produce heat energy in more abundance than the energy which powers the oscillator. The device is reported to put out 40 kilowatts of heat energy with only two kilowatts of electrical input. Last year Dr. Josef Gruber described a visit to the research institute where Koldomasov is managing engineer. Koldomasov discovered the new energy source while observing cavitation – implosions in water such as found in “water hammer” in pipes. Gruber showed a photograph of the small device, filled with pure water mixed with only one per cent deuterium (heavy water). Although there are no spark plugs or similar equipment, electrical discharge could be seen. Energy comes out in the form of both heat and electrical current. “Depending on kind and location of the magnets, DC or AC (electricity) may be observed.” Gruber said testing revealed 2000 per cent excess energy.
Don’t more-output-than-input machines violate a law of physics? A few speakers said that “law” is invalid if a machine releases trapped potential energy from nature in previously-unrecognized ways. They cited zero-point fluctuations of the vacuum of space, vacuum spin or aether as the source of excess energy. The word “aether” is loaded with baggage from the nineteenth century, when aether was thought to be a static substance filling all space, just sitting there. In contrast, a new understanding is of a non-material dynamic primary background out of which the material world is created. This aether is seen as being incredibly dense with energy in constant motion.
Dr. Harold Aspden from England (www.aspden.org) is both a theoretical physicist and practical. In 1972 he was 30 years ahead of his time with his book Modern Aether Science. As patent director of IBM Europe and then a professor of electrical engineering, he could have taken the easy route of accepting consensus science. But he instead came up with a physical theory that applies to new energy technologies including magnetic motors and plasma discharges.
At the Berlin meeting Aspden gave a strong hint to experimenters who are looking for a way to gain energy from the aether’s spin: try pulsing at least 25 kilovolts of electricity at frequencies of around 100 kilohertz (100,000 pulses per second) into concentric cylindrical capacitors (arrangements for storing electrical charge). This suggestion came from analyzing what is known about successful inventions including the Radiant Energy device of the late T. H. Moray of Utah. From his knowledge of new physics Aspden concluded the inventions had features in common. As far back as 1871, American inventor Daniel McFarland Cook received US Patent 119,825 on a device which illustrates Aspden’s suggestion. The free-electricity converter at the Methernitha community in Switzerland included cylindrical capacitors. When inviting the aether into an electrical generator, apparently shape is important.
Aspden’s talk led up to the presentation of Dr. Paulo and Alexandra Correa (www.aetherometry.com). Their outstanding work will be a future topic in this magazine. For now, we’ll quote Dr. Eugene Mallove. “There is now a verified, meticulously documented technology that is able to produce more electricity out than is input by the reactor.” He says the Pulsed Abnormal Glow Discharge device of the Correas at Labofex in Canada, is “well on its way to commercialization for electric power generation in vehicles and in homes. It looks solidly protected by US and by foreign patent coverage….The ultimate origin of the energy may well be the vacuum energy of space…”
A focus on the East must include the late Professor Aleksandr Chernetskii of Moscow. He developed a plasma generator said to convert vacuum energy into electricity. A press release at the time quoted Chernetskii as saying experiments with different circuits proved that the energy output was always greater than the input. The mysterious effect was called the self-generating discharge. One experiment with a powerful plasma unit burned out the huge megawatt electrical substation of the Moscow Aviation Institute. The discharge had reached a critical point in which superstrong current flowed from the generator and back into wires to the substation. In an experiment with an input of 700 watts, the generator produced nearly five times as much.
Oleg V. Gritskevitch is a physicist who has patented variations of an electrostatic generator-converter. He says his device makes electric power without any fuel consumption and is nearly ideal for large-scale electrical generators. Frolov’s magazine highlights the claim that a prototype in Armenia has been producing more than 1,500 kilowatts of power for several years.
Gritskevitch worked in the USSR Academy of Sciences but became an independent inventor in 1985. He has more than 70 inventions, ranging from a non-mechanical marine engine to “electrohydraulic” refrigerators. Frolov says today Gritskevitch and fellow scientist S.A. Lisnyak are working on their new “vortex power system”, the Vortex Tube which Griskevitch says directly creates excessive electrical energy by using the insulating properties of pure water during vortex rotation.
Viktor Schauberger (1885-1958) of Austria told the world about vortex power. At the Berlin conference Jorg Schauberger spoke about his grandfather’s revolutionary ideas about how nature works and how the natural order is damaged by human habits of moving things the wrong way. He said we can restore ecosystems by implosion technology and produce ample amounts of power silently with no damage to ecosystems, by using inward-spiraling motions. Proponents of this harmony-with-nature approach manned a booth near the entrance to the Berlin symposium, where Schauberger and associates such as editor of Implosion journal Klaus Rauber and William Baumgartner (www.vortexscience.com) educated visitors from the nearby Solar Energy 2002 fair.
Zlatko Loncar, nicknamed “Shad”, wanted to demonstrate one of his experiments – molecular dissociation of diesel fuel – to prove that his process runs without electricity. Organizers of the conference, however, declined to take that risk indoors. His presentation to the Berlin meeting (www.binnotec.org) focused on two ways to take apart water molecules: with a combination of pulsed current and “magnetic resonance”, and secondly with his “Neutrino Diffusor” which somehow works without electrical current to convert diesel into gas. He changes its efficiency by putting layers of organic and inorganic materials around the Diffusor, to prove that what the late Dr. Wilhelm Reich called “orgone” energy has an effect. During his presentation he ignited gas from a water-filled bubbler to prove the bubbles are burnable and not mere air. That’s all I could understand, since his speech was in German.
A planetary citizen, Loncar was born to Communism-suppressed Slovenian nobility in 1964, spent his childhood in Switzerland and now lives in Croatia. His passion for alternative science began before he was ten years of age, and Nikola Tesla was his idol. Since Loncar found nothing about aether in established science, he turned to philosophy. Atlantis Rising readers will be interested to hear from Loncar that Tesla received many of his ideas about atoms and aether from the 5,000-year-old Vedantic knowledge.
As with many energy researchers, Shad’s findings are on the internet. Circuits are connecting in the global brain. Professor of economics Dr. Josef Gruber said in Berlin, “Humankind can reach a sustainable economy worldwide. Cooperation is the secret of success.”
