WASHINGTON (AP) — Space weather officials say the strongest solar storm in more than six years is bombarding Earth with radiation with more to come.

The radiation is mostly an issue for satellite disruptions and astronauts in space. It can causecommunication problems for polar-traveling airplanes.

The Space Weather Prediction Center in Colorado observed the flare Sunday at 11 p.m. EST. (0400 GMT). Physicist Doug Biesecker says the biggest concern is the radiation, which arrived on Earth an hour later. It will likely continue through Wednesday.

Biesecker said the storm’s radiation levels are considered strong but other storms have been more severe. It is the strongest level since May 2005.

Plasma ejected from the sun arrives Tuesday, but is not as strong. It can extend the visibility of auroras and disrupt the electrical grid.

Astronomers searching for another Earth are getting closer, thanks to recent discoveries by the Kepler space telescope.

  Astronomers have discovered more than 700 alien planets beyond the solar system, and the count is rising all the time. Some are large and hot, and others are smaller and cooler, but scientists are still on the lookout for an Earth twin.

They just got closer, with the announcement Dec. 5 of a planet found by NASA’s Kepler space telescope to lie in the habitable zone around its star where liquid water, and perhaps life, could exist.

Steorn Drops Four Bombshell Documents Validating Orbo

Posted by Admin on December 22, 2011

The Dublin based, Irish free energy company Steorn, has allowed PESN to view and report on four documents written by third party scientists and engineers that appear to validate the Orbo overunity technology.

for Pure Energy Systems News

PESN has been given the opportunity by Sean McCarthy, the CEO of Steorn, to review four documents that provide confirmation of their overunity magnetic technology, named Orbo. The first three documents cover tests performed on permanent magnet based systems, and the final document discusses a test of a solid state Orbo in a calorimeter. The significance of these documents is that they seem to validate Steorn’s technology, and prove the Orbo technology works as Steorn has claimed.

Orbo’s Back Story 

Steorn is the Irish based company that in August of 2006 announced — via a full page advertisement in The Economist — they had developed a technology that offered free, clean, and constant energy. Around this same time, they opened a public forum (now closed) on their website, on which the CEO of the company, Sean McCarthy, frequently posted and contributed to discussions. This public forum evolved, and lead to the creation of a private forum for those willing to sign non-disclosure agreements. This private forum eventually became what is today called the “Steorn Knowledge Development Base” or SKDB.

Between 2006 and present day, Steorn has been rapidly developing their technology, which is all based on magnetism. Originally, in 2006, their technology utilized only permanent magnets interacting with other magnets in very specific ways. These original configurations utilized the concept of magnetic viscosity (the delay of a magnetic material to move on the BH curve or respond magnetically, when exposed to the field of another magnet) to produce gains or losses of energy. In a rotary system utilizing such a setup, if the rotor moved in one direction there would be a loss of energy, and if it moved in the other direction there would be a gain of energy. Over the course of time, Steorn enhanced their permanent-magnet-only configurations to include the use of “soft” (not having a permanent magnetic field of their own) magnetic materials — such as ferrite — and geometric relationships that allowed for greater amounts of OU. As their configurations evolved, so did their understanding of what was taking place to produce the gains/losses of energy. They came to the realization that the manipulation of the BH curve was at the heart of all their configurations.

At some point Steorn developed a design for an electric pulse motor — named E-Orbo – that did not produce back EMF (also known as counter EMF), and hence produced overunity gains of energy. Back EMF is the enemy of free energy in electric motors, because it is the signature of energy transfer between the circuit that powers the electromagnets (input) that are pulsed, and the rotor (output). If you can avoid producing back EMF, you simply will not be transferring energy from the input to the output. The concept is that the torque gained by the rotor will be thermodynamically free. Hence, the efficiency of such a setup will be infinite, since none of the input is actually consumed.

During late 2009 and early 2010, Steorn held a series of demonstrations of the E-Orbo at the Waterways Center in Dublin, Ireland. These demonstrations were streamed live onto the internet, and were posted to YouTube . With high end oscilloscopes, current probes, inductance meters, and other equipment, Steorn was able to clearly show the E-Orbo systems present were producing overunity, and not producing back EMF (within the measurement capability of the equipment present). In fact, in addition to producing a gain of energy in the form of torque on the rotor, the coils being pulsed experienced an “induction gain.” Many individuals replicated the E-Orbo, and posted videos of their systems on the internet. In the recent past, the patent for E-Orbo has been published. It documents the system down to the smallest detail.

Steorn is first and foremost an intellectual property company that desires to accumulate a stock of patented, novel technologies they can license to developers. Their primary goal is not to develop products themselves, but to allow their licensees to do so. This drive to accumulate as much intellectual property as possible, is probably what drove them to pursue a solid state (no moving parts) version of their Orbo technology. The following description of their solid state technology was provided on a previous version of their website.

SolidState Orbo is the latest physical implementation of the Orbo technology platform. Solid State has numerous advantages over previous implementations. The fact that the Solid State version has no moving parts lowers the costs and reduces the time-frame for developers wishing to replicate the core effect. Testing is greatly simplified too. The only test equipment required is a simple digital oscilloscope.Solid State Orbo gains energy via control of a material’s inductance and domain rotation. As with all previous implementations of Orbo, these material permeability effects are fundamental to the production of an energy gain.

Although Solid State Orbo is in the early stages of development, rapid progress is being made with regards to optimisation. For this reason, it forms the basis of the Steorn Knowledge Development Base.

The development of the solid state Orbo technology seems to be their current focus. A solid state technology that can produce overunity gains of energy would be a huge achievement. Once hitting the marketplace, such a technology would have the potential to advance as rapidly as integrated circuit chips did in the 1990’s.

Awesome Scoop for PESN

After hearing very little from Steorn for quite a while, an email was sent to Sean McCarthy requesting an update on the status of their company. He very promptly (hours later) replied to the email, and offered PESN a great opportunity to review four papers — written by third party scientists and engineers — about the Orbo technology. The condition that came with the offer was that the papers themselves could not be posted, and the authors names could not be revealed. Also, Steorn would have right to review the article before it was published, which is a common courtesy we offer to many of the inventors and companies we compose feature articles about. Very quickly, we took him up on the offer!

Shortly after reviewing the four papers, their significance became obvious. They are all written by third parties outside of Steorn, who indicate that Steorn’s claims are valid. To be specific, three of the papers address permanent magnet configurations, and the final paper covers a solid state configuration tested in a calorimeter. It should be noted that Steorn has previously tested the E-Orbo in a calorimeter of their own design, and published the positive results on their website.

The remaining portion of this article will be divided into four parts, each part covering one of the four papers. In each part, we will share as much information as we can from the specific paper — while carefully avoiding content that could be considered too proprietary.

Paper #1 – Overunity Only Gets Better With Age

This fairly short paper is the oldest of the four (written in 2006), but verifies that early on, Steorn had third parties replicating, and hence validating, their technology. The author is a highly credible engineer and scientist who holds multiple advanced degrees. With degrees in physics and engineering, R&D (research and development) experience, and expertise in magnetism, he would seem like an ideal individual to test and validate Steorn’s claims about the Orbo technology.

The topic of the paper is a test of an early configuration that was performed at Steorn’s offices. The setup seems to be composed of a “main” wheel with a magnet attached to it, and a secondary, smaller wheel that also holds a magnet. One of the magnets would be set at an angle to the opposite magnet, on the other wheel. During each test, either the main wheel or the small wheel would rotate (the other being in a fixed or stationary position), and the magnets attached to each wheel would interact with each other. The torque of the wheel in motion would be measured with a torque meter, and the data would be analyzed. From this analysis, any anomalous torque in the system would be apparent.

To prepare for the test, the torque meter for each wheel was properly calibrated, and the friction and the electronic offset of each torque meter were determined. This information was used to correct the raw data that would come from each torque meter.

Multiple tests were performed in which one wheel (either the main wheel or small wheel) was fixed and the other was allowed to rotate. Also, the angle of the magnets were changed and then tested. After the data was corrected and analyzed, the conclusion was a gain of energy of .99 mill-joules or 6.2% of the total energy could be obtained in the experiment.

The author of the report states,

“The background friction cannot explain such a large unbalance. The calibration of the torque meter also rules out any experimental error associated with the readings. It is not clear what the source of this net energy [is], and further investigation is required to find a physical explanation for this phenomenon.”

This document clearly indicates that even Steorn’s earliest permanent magnetic configurations could produce gains of energy (in this case torque on a wheel), that could be detected by professionals with high quality, testing equipment. The fact a scientist and engineer of the caliber that wrote this paper would report such an anomalous gain of energy is a boost for Steorn’s credibility.

Document #2 – Real Men Love Torque Curves

(Editors Note: We have discovered this document is actually posted on Steorn’s website. It is the only one of the four documents that appears to be publicly available.)

This long and very detailed document, composed in 2008, was written by a consulting engineer, John A.M. Rice, who went to Steorn’s offices to perform a test of a permanent magnet configuration. In the document, the engineer specifically states his role, which was three fold.

– From an engineering and technical perspective, to formally observe a series of tests which aim to support the above-mentioned claim.

– To examine the test methods, equipment and procedures, with particular respect to their suitability, accuracy, and performance.

– To observe, verify, and report on specific tests carried out in support of the claim in the undersigned’s presence.

In the paper, the engineer specifically details the setup, all the components used, the testing equipment used, and the experiment to be performed. He goes on to describe how the equipment was calibrated, and all possible variables (such as bend in the rotor shaft, friction in the system, ovality of the wheel, the linearity of the data from torque meters, and possible interference from the Earth’s magnetic field) were measured and accounted for. All of this setup and preliminary work was vital to ensure the raw data could be appropriately corrected as necessary, so the results of the testing would be valid. The results of the testing in the form of many torque curves (graphs of the torque on the rotor over a 360 degree rotation) are included in the document.

The basic setup was a rotor (connected to a torque meter), with a stator. The rotor could be “stepped” (moved a tiny fraction of a degree at a time) repeatedly for “static” testing, or allowed to rotate continually for 360 degrees or more, never stopping during the range of degrees tested, for “dynamic” testing. Both the rotor and stationary stator could be fitted with magnets (neodymium in this case) and/or rods of soft ferrite. Multiple tests were performed (both static and dynamic) of various magnetic configurations. As an example, in one test the rotor held a rod of soft ferrite, with a neodymium magnet backing it in a configuration that “biased” the ferrite (as explained in a paper previously available on Steorn’s public website). The permanent magnet and biased ferrite interacted with a permanent magnet attached to the stator.

Over a 360 degree rotation there was a gain of energy, which the author reported with the following statement…

“In the test context distance involves a 360 degree rotation of the rig rotor. By integrating, i.e. summation, of the torque profile through a full revolution of the rotor, the associated energy can be calculated. This facility was setup in the test IE equipment.

“A zero energy gain applied to (b) i.e. ferrite removed, but neo magnet only in rotor. Conversely, a net energy GAIN (through a 360 degree rotation) is evident for (b) i.e. ferrite included in rotor. This latter result is the key outcome of the tests.”

This report also offered a very upbeat discussion of the test results.

DISCUSSION OF TEST RESULTS V. OBJECTIVE:Recapping on this short program of tests, the fundamental questions were:

(i) Is the test equipment appropriate and suitable for the purpose — YES.

(ii) Is the particular test rig, and its component parts, controls and IT systems utilized in a manner which delivers accurate, consistent and repeatable test results — YES.

(iii) Are the applied methods and procedures, as observed during the tests, objective and pertinent — YES.

(iv) Do the test results provide clear and explicit support of the claim? – YES.

So in short, when it comes to Steorn’s permanent magnet based Orbo technology, this author’s answer was, “Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!”

It sounds like a pretty good endorsement to me!

Document #3 – I’ll Do It Better The Second Time Around

The author of this third paper — from 2009 — starts off by stating that he thinks Steorn may have “really stumbled across an experimental magnetic anomaly”, because Steorn’s test data (he references various test data provided by Steorn) seems to confirm a theoretical anomaly he has discovered, through his own calculations.

In the paper he elaborates on his theoretical anomaly that would be produced by a specific arrangement of a neodymium magnet on a rotor (or a soft ferrite biased by a neodymium magnet) interacting with a stator magnet, at a certain angle to the rotor. He states that the gain of energy in the setup would be, according to Steorn, due to specific conditions of “asymmetry and nonlinearity.” However, he adds that according to his theoretical anomaly, it is due to a change in anisotropic asymmetry that can apparently produce a gain of energy.&^&

He makes it clear in the paper that his analysis of Steorn’s data and his calculations do not prove that the theory of conservation of energy is being violated. However, he also states there is the chance that additional research may explain why it is not possible to produce energy from the magnetic effects, or it could indicate “unknown physics might reveal the impossible.”

A few additional bits of information he offers are as follows.

– The variables in the system (airgap, amount of biasing, and stator angle) must all be optimized to produce an obviously detectable gain of energy. For example, a change in the strength of the biasing of the soft ferrite or the angle of the neodymium stator magnet requires the other parameter to be altered. This is why it can be so difficult to detect the effect.

“There exists an optimized bias value for a fixed stator angle and also an optimized angle for a fixed bias value for which the effect has maxima. This together with the general smallness explains why it is so difficult to demonstrate the experimental anomaly!”

– The test data the author was given was not obtained in such a way to maximize the gain of energy, but to show the “importance of conditions.”

– The author details in a chart how both asymmetry and nonlinearity must be present for the Steorn effect to appear. For example, in a setup with an unbiased rotor magnet and a symmetric magnetic field produced by the stator magnet, there is no gain of energy. With a biased rotor magnet and an asymmetric magnetic field produced by the stator magnet, there is a gain of energy.

This report was not an absolute confirmation of the Steorn technology (the author makes this clear), but shows that highly credible scientists and engineers can see how the Orbo technology may work to produce gains of energy.

Document #4 – “It’s getting hot in here, turn off that Orbo!”

The fourth report that we were allowed to examine is unique from the others in that it is about a solid state version of Steorn’s technology. It is also the most recent of the documents, being written in March, 2011.

A solid state Orbo offers the potential of having no moving parts, having no need for bearings (as in permanent manget (PM) or E-Orbo configurations), being simpler to build, and potentially being simpler to test. Other advantages of solid state Orbo include fewer parts to wear out, and perhaps more potential to evolve quickly — in a similar manner to the way computers evolved during the past twenty years.

In this paper the author describes a very simple configuration that involves a coil wrapped around a nickel core (that is both magnetic and conductive) acting as an inductor. The coil and core is placed in a calorimeter composed of a vacuum chamber. Two thermocouples measure the temperature of the coil itself, and the temperature of the air in the room. A metered power supply provides the input power to the coil, and an oscilloscope monitors the current, voltage, and can also calculate total input power by using a math function of the scope.

The purpose of the test is to determine if the coil fed with a quantity of AC power, can produce more heat than the same coil fed with the same quantity of DC power. In the paper, the formula needed to calculate the total AC power is presented. The AC input and DC input is configured to be as identical as possible. Actually, the power input during the AC run was .9 (point nine) watts, and in the DC run it was 1 (one) watt. The fact that the input power during the AC run was slightly less than in the DC run actually biases the test against the AC run. This makes the results of the test even more significant.

In the first test, 1 watt of DC power is fed into the coil wound around the nickel core. The temperature of the coil increases until it reaches an equilibrium point of 36.1 degrees. This is the point at which the power lost by the coil via heat dissipation matches the electrical input power. Even if the input power stayed on for hours longer, the temperature of the coil would not increase above this temperature.

In the second test, .9 watts is fed into the same coil wound around the same exact nickel core. Obviously, this test took place a period of time after the first one, after the temperature of the coil has dropped back to its original value. The result of AC being fed into the coil is that it rises to an equilibrium temperature of 41.1 degrees. This means that in the AC test, the temperature of the coil reached a temperature five degrees higher than in the DC test.

The higher equilibrium temperature obtained when the coil was powered with AC, indicates an anomalous gain of energy. The gain of energy is unexplainable, because the input power in both tests were almost identical — actually slightly less when AC was utilized. As the paper continues, the author indicates that resistive heating cannot be the case for the increased temperature in the AC test run.

Here is the conclusion found at the end of the paper.

“The extra heating effect under the application of an AC signal is not explained simply by the transfer of input power to the coil. Consideration of the energy input to the system does not account for the energy output — as evidenced by the steady state temperature; there is an extra effect which needs to be isolated and identified.

“This investigation has not been able to suggest a reason for the energy output from the AC case. While it has been demonstrated and verified, and the DC case shows resistive heating as expected, there is no such simple explanation for the behavior of the coil under AC heating.”

The conclusion must be that this is an energy output which is higher than would be expected from the power input, and caused by the response of the coil to the alternating signal.”

It seems likely that this “extra effect” is part of Steorn’s magnetic overunity effect that allows for the production of free energy. After many months of hearing little about Steorn’s progress developing the Orbo technology, it is refreshing to read a report that demonstrates a clear, simple, and obvious gain of energy — in this case, in the form of heat.

A Breakthrough for the Free Energy Community

Although the amount of free energy produced in the fourth paper mentioned above is not huge, it seems to be well documented by a professional. The point of the experiment was not to produce large amounts of energy, but to document and prove an overunity magnetic effect. The test seems to have satisfied that goal. Scaled up and fully developed, this configuration might be capable of producing much greater amounts of excess energy.

One interesting thing to note is the experiment seems so simple it makes me think it could be fairly easily replicated. Of course Steorn may not be ready to share the additional information that would be useful for a replication, but if Steorn decided to even partially open source this technology (for individuals outside of Steorn to replicate) PESN would be eager to assist such an effort.

The first three papers documenting gains of energy from permanent magnet systems are also impressive. They clearly show that multiple third parties have tested the Orbo technology, and have demonstrated that it works as claimed.

In my opinion, these documents add even more evidence — in addition to the successful demonstrations of the E-Orbo at the Waterways Center — to the case that Steorn has developed multiple breakthrough technologies.

When the world catches up to what Steorn has accomplished, a rapid scientific and technological revolution may take place. The fact that free energy can be harnessed from magnetism (in a variety of configurations) will shake the scientific establishment to the core. This small company which has been attacked by skeptics and belittled by naysayers may just end up being able to tell the world…

“I told you so!”

The next step for Steorn may be when a client licenses one of their technologies and produces a working product.

PESN would like to thank Sean McCarthy for providing us with the four documents to review, and allow us to report on them.

Solar System Surprise: A New View of What’s Out There

Posted by Admin on August 12, 2011

by Robert Roy Britt, Senior Science Writer
Date: 22 November 2004 Time: 06:24 AM ET

A fabled tenth planet out beyond Neptune, often referred to as Planet X, hasn’t been found despite years of searching. But astronomers involved in the hunt are beginning to speculate that something like Planet X will be discovered, along with Y and Z.

In fact, the entire alphabet may not suffice to denote the many worlds circling the Sun.

In an emerging new theoretical view of our corner of the galaxy, several worlds larger than Pluto — a few perhaps as big as Mars — lurk in the outskirts of the solar system. Some are so far away that it would take more than a year, traveling at the speed of light, to reach them.

Wrapping up one search

For years, astronomers have been scouring the Kuiper Belt, a region past Neptune that’s loaded with comet-like objects. The Kuiper Belt extends out to some 5 billion miles (8 billion kilometers) from the Sun. That’s a little more than 50 times the distance between Earth and the Sun, or 50 astronomical units (AU).

Since 1992, more than 800 Kuiper Belt Objects (KBOs) have been found. A handful look to be roughly half the size of Pluto. Until recently, the larger KBOs had fueled speculation that one or more Pluto-sized bodies would eventually be found.

“Given that our survey has covered almost the entire region of the Kuiper Belt, I’m willing to bet these days that nothing larger than Pluto will be found in the Kuiper Belt,” says Caltech astronomer Mike Brown.

As hope fades, a study released earlier this month shows that some KBOs are smaller than had been assumed.

The size of a distant object is often based on an estimate of its reflectivity, a measure called albedo. For years astronomers had assumed KBOs were pretty dark, reflecting just 4 percent of the sunlight that hit them.

University of Arizona astronomer John Stansberry used NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope to obtain actual albedos for some of these icy objects.

“Our results have albedos ranging from 6 percent to 18 percent for the eight objects I’ve analyzed,” Stansberry said. If a KBO is brighter than thought, then less surface area is required to reflect the amount of sunlight that was measured — so the object’s size must be revised downward.

One object, catalogued as 2002 AW197, was thought to be two-thirds the diameter of Pluto. Stansberry has now shrunk that estimate to about one-third.

Looking into a new realm

Some of the larger objects out there have not shrunk, however, because their actual albedos were already fairly well known. One of these is way, way out there, and it is seen as a missing link to the space beyond the Kuiper Belt.

Last November, Mike Brown’s team found a world at least half as large as Pluto. They named it Sedna, after the Inuit sea goddess. Sedna’s elongated orbit is outside the Kuiper Belt, ranging from 76 to 1,000 AU.

Sedna was found only because it is currently near the innermost stretch of its travels.

Well past Sedna is another reservoir of material left over from the formation of the solar system, theorists believe. The Oort Cloud is a hypothesized sphere of frozen objects thought to start at about 10,000 AU and extend to 100,000 AU, or 1.5 light-years from the Sun.

Nobody expected to find an object like Sedna in the largely empty space between the Kuiper Belt and the Oort Cloud. Theorists are now scrambling to explain Sedna’s presence and what it means to the composition of the outer solar system.

“Sedna could be a member of a substantial population of bodies trapped between the Kuiper Belt and Oort Cloud,” says the University of Hawaii’s David Jewitt, who made the first accurate estimate of a KBO albedo in 2001.

Brown, who now bets against finding Planet X in the Kuiper Belt, thinks his group’s discovery of Sedna portends an even more compelling scenario.

“I’d also be willing to bet that there are many objects larger than Pluto out in the region of space where Sedna lives,” Brown said last week. Out to about 1,000 AU, he speculates that there could be 10 or 20 Pluto-sized objects, “and a handful of larger things, too.” Some of these suspected worlds could be as big as Mercury or even Mars, he said.

I asked Brown if there might be worlds larger than Pluto clear out at the edge of the Oort Cloud, 1.5 light-years away and nearly half the distance to the Alpha Centauri star system.

“Absolutely,” he said. “Probably even likely.”

Waiting on technology

New telescopes will be needed to connect the dots of the outer solar system.

“Pluto-sized planets in distant near-circular orbits are beyond the reach of current searches,” said Lowell Observatory astronomer Bob Millis, who leads a team that has found more than 400 KBOs. “Future searches tuned to more distant objects and using large telescopes … can begin to probe this region.”

And while Mike Brown has his mental sights set beyond Sedna, Millis thinks there could still be a surprise lurking in the Kuiper Belt.

“It is certainly possible that one or more objects as large as Pluto remain to be found inside about 70 AU,” Millis told me. “No searches performed to date are complete in this region,” although he added that the survey by Brown and his colleagues, Chad Trujillo and David Rabinowitz, “has substantially reduced the likelihood” that such objects exist.

“Beyond about 70 AU,” Millis said, “it is anybody’s guess.”

Posted by Admin on May 22, 2011

The following is an overview of information given to me a few days ago by a source I have named John Doe.

Most, if not all, of this information covers previously released info however, this can be seen as up-to-date verification of much of that testimony gathered from various other whistleblowers and researchers. John Doe was recruited into the CIA at a young age and has been involved in many operations including Iran Contra.

He first described being taken to one of the underground bases in Colorado – dumb (deep underground military base). Says it allows for 100,000 people, has high ceilings massive rooms, something like a Mall. He said these bases are built for cataclysmic events coming anytime up to 6 years in the future. He said that people like him are told “you are going to have ticket” … not true. Most of them are being misled to believe that. He said the problem they are having now is that they realize that many facilities they have built won’t survive.. so they are hard at work retrofitting them and trying to bring them up to speed. He says he has been in 4 ..there are dozens.

While down in one of the bases he was introduced to a human looking ET — (the description best fits those known as Nordics- my label – Kerry). He says these human-looking visitors are all over the Pentagon and CIA… He describes them as being very handsome, around 6’3″ with very striking eyes. His impression is that they are not overly friendly with no obvious sense of humor. The one he met looked to be in his 30s.

This individual said that they are using and sharing technology with us that has been around for thousands of years. There’s life everywhere in the universe. However, the earth is one of a only a handful of planets that has everything… an extremely interesting and desirable planet. He said the diversity here is rare but not unique.

He said that real intel comes from the mid-level guys…. And this is where ‘information flows’. Interestingly, he said that the mid-level guys are not convinced these guys (the Nordics) are only here to help…He said they are in essence, intergalactic capitalists. They have been here for thousands of years… And that they never give without taking something.

The secret government is on a crash program to finish the facilities and to get the them up to snuff before the Earth changes. He said they had to escalate their work and correspondingly the influx of cash… To that end they have been using the drug trade to fund their endeavors and when they run out there they had to steal money off the people in order to complete the work in time.

He stressed there is a lot of mistrust on the mid-level who are not as convinced as those on the higher levels of management that the Nordics can be trusted… and also that their supervisors are telling them the truth… about anything.

John Doe talked about the technology we have received from the ETs and said, what people don’t realize is that along with what we have received, you also have to use terrestrial materials to make it work. And that there’s a lot of problems with converting the technology to get it to work here in this dimension and on Earth. You need to do a great deal of R&D to convert the technologies to get them to work here. When things don’t work, this adds to the mistrust.

In regard to the military/secret government, he said, that these guys have worked for 50 years in order to be prepared and to save a semblance of civilization.

Cataclysmic changes could happen anytime but not on a specific date like December 21, 2012… He said there will be an escalating of severity and will take from now up to the next 6 years. This, he said, is fairly agreed upon among the ranks.

There is a known object entering our solar system that is on an orbit coming through, that and the line-up of planets next year will cause massive disruptions and eventually, a polar shift. It’s in essence the Apocalypse like Bible speaks of… This incoming planet or actually star (dark star) is also stimulating the high activity of the sun. Things are ratcheting up every year and he can can only guess on the exact time frame.

In general, he talked about the recent revolutions and uprisings in the Middle East and said specifically that Tunesia was not spontaneous event.. He points to the placards in English as evidence of prior planning.

Referring to the Earth changes he said “this is going to be a bloodbath” with approximately a 25-30% survival rate worldwide. The changes will be a process that builds.

He said, while, given access to seeing and hearing about the secret projects they are involved in, that from his point of view they were aimed at destructive technologies and they seemed to have no compunction or conscience over the ultimate aim of the projects. Such as what human in their right mind would want to mess with the upper atmosphere and create destructive weapons… he said he can’t understand it.

He said he is sure that Obama has lost his ticket (to the underground bases) and that he is uninformed or doesn’t get it. He said Clinton however, has his ticket because most of the drug traffic went right through his state… and that he has
ingratiated himself with the CIA from the beginning. He said Pamela Harriman helped get him into office….

Reason for Coming Forward

Paraphrasing… he said, “I would love to get on top of my house and scream it but everybody’s going through their lives and they have got no idea. I want to protect my children and I can’t. I like to believe I have a soul. I would like to get forgiveness.” – John Doe

Keshe launching energy generation and space exploration plasma technology

Posted by Admin on March 27, 2011

An interview with the inventor of what could be the next generation of commercial space travel and clean energy generation, said to be ready for licensing. We’re talking super fast and cheap travel, and super cheap energy. 3 kW units are available for viewing or testing by qualified licensing parties.

While the world commemorates the Apollo astronauts‘ landing on the moon 40 years ago, I was privileged Monday, on the moon landing anniversary, to interview nuclear engineer, Mehran T. Keshe of the Keshe Foundation, who on that momentous day had sent out notice to government leaders around the world that he has a plasma technology in Belgium with anti-gravity (not his terminology) and energy-generating ramifications that could lead the way to commercially viable journeys into space and to the moon, along with generating affordable, renewable energy both for transportation and electricity.

He plans to publicly demonstrate the technology to thousands of people in major cities around the world next year; and he plans to start booking flights for space travel – e.g. up 60 km above the earth – by 2014, and for flights to the moon by 2016, transporting thousands of people to those destinations for a small fraction of the cost of what fuel-based shuttle services are projecting.  He’ll even be accepting down payments with guarantees for both flight opportunities.  You’ll be able to put 20% of $50,000 Euros down to reserve your seat on a trip to the moon.  “It may even end up costing less than that.”  Wait a while longer (past 2016) and you could even get to Mars in a matter of a few days, rather than months. is being set up for booking flights.  If you’re worried about plunking down the 20% deposit, Keshe says that the deposits are guaranteed with bank backing to be refunded upon request or in case the flights do not materialize.

In the interview, Keshe briefly explained the science behind the technology.  “It’s not anti-gravity,” he corrected me.  Rather, what happens is that his plasma reactor creates a local imitation of the Earth’s magnetic-gravitational properties, complete with magnetosphere, providing protection from the cosmic rays that can otherwise be deadly outside of the Earth’s atmosphere.  Because the phenomenon is local to the reactor, a gravitational force of 1-G is maintained for all craft occupants, including during acceleration and deceleration.

Existing craft, such as a 747, minus the wings (they get in the way), could serve as the transport shell, once fitted with the plasma reactor; though spherical craft would be better.  Weight is no issue.  Number of passengers is no issue.  And no specialized training would be required for the pilots of such craft.

And the transport capabilities are not just for space.  Imagine going from New York to Paris in a matter of minutes, rather than half a day.  Imagine having one of these to beat the traffic to work.  Imagine living in some remote location in the Alps, powered by the same technology, and commuting to Australia — or to the moon, to help build a colony there.  The trucking industry would no longer involve highways, but would be point-to-point specific, rapid, and involve no fuel costs.

Speaking of fuel, one of my primary interests in this technology is its claims for cheap, clean energy generation.  Keshe claims that his reactors can produce on the level of kilowatts of electricity, with no fuel, drawing energy from the environment where it is replenished from an inexhaustible source using principles of plasma.  And he says that these reactors (in the range of 3 kW output, continuous) are available presently for interested parties (e.g. for potential licensing) to inspect or to test for themselves.

He told me that the technology is far enough advanced, and simple enough that a licensing party could be in production in a matter of several weeks, not including the 2-3 month training period for learning the technology.  Given the regulatory hoops alone, I find that a bit hard to believe, but I’m intrigued by the principle of simplicity.  He said that the quantity of units presently deployed numbers in the hundreds.  Those entering into negotiations for licenses do so under NDA, and will be required to provide proof of financial capability of payment for setting up factories and paying for licensing.

While the demonstration units will be expensive (e.g. $50k Euros to purchase for testing), once mass produced, Keshe thinks the price for these kilowatt generators could be in the few hundreds of dollars — like ten times cheaper than the cheapest energy sources available today of any variety; and they would last for decades.  For example, a 3-5 kilowatt unit might cost $200 Euros and last 20-30 years.

Eventually, each community or even each home could be fitted with one, and each vehicle.  The technology wouldn’t really scale down smaller than that, so you’ll still need cords, batteries or some kind of inductive coupling for your portable devices and appliances.

I have asked Keshe if I can contact some of the people who have tested his technology, and he is in process of receiving permissions to do so, as the contract as it is written grants confidentiality.

First page clipping image
Keshe has filed at least two international patents.

I asked Keshe about the gravity modification capabilities of his technology in terms of what he’s actually accomplished, beyond just theoretical speculation.  He said that he has elevated a 100+ kg mass — himself.  Apparently, in his book, he describes how he damaged a system by jumping on it last year while it was flying.  He sent me a link to a confidential video showing a 9 kg mass changing to 8 kg, and a 7 kg mass changing to 6 kg.  He claims to have been able to figure out not only the elevation control, but also the direction of motion control.

Keshe told me that his device is a “simple nuclear reactor,” but that it doesn’t involve controlled nuclear isotopes, but that it involves materials that could be found in a home, having minute levels of radioactivity.  Part of the process apparently involves extracting hydrogen from the atmosphere, so I presume that space travel would require storage tanks of some kind.  Keshe said that even the “human body is a miniature nuclear reactor”, involving nitrogen.

These principles of energy generation and gravity modification are articulated in the book Keshe recently published: The Universal Order of Creation of Matters,  He has also posted five youtube movies explaining the key concepts described in the book.

You will also notice on the KesheFoundation YouTube channel that there are a number Coke bottle demonstration videos.  Keshe said that hundreds of people have replicated the plasma creation and graphene-coating capabilities demonstrated in this simple proof of concept experiment.  This demonstration apparently mimics on a micro level what happens on the macro level in a solar system or in a galaxy — the microcosm mimicking the macrocosm.

Keshe said that there are thousands of scientists from around the world who have been working on various elements of this technology for years, helping to bring the technology to the point that it is at now.  He specifically mentioned U.C.L.A., and said that some governments have also been involved in replicating and refining the design.  He told me in an email that the technology was reviewed by team of professors in Belgium in 2005 for seven months, and by another Belgian university considering the nano technology, which was also reviewed by nano institutes.  The technology has also been reviewed by a government nuclear research center in Europ, by top universities in Iran, China, Korea, “and I think DARPA has [a] full report where we have been and [a] copy of all reports.”

As exciting as the above claims are about gravity modification and energy generation, Keshe is even more enthusiastic about the health ramifications of the technology.  He said that the carbon coating on the nervous system can be improved, helping conditions such as M.S. or chronic fatigue, just by drinking treated water.

I didn’t quite catch why, but apparently some Belgian news outlet has a vendetta against Keshe because he would not sell out his technology some years ago, nor subject himself to the system of bribes involved in the European energy industry; and they vowed a media blackout of his technology, which apparently they have been successful thus far in enforcing.  As of today, our coverage at is the only thing that pulls up in a Google news search for recent news stories on Keshe.

On the less malevolent level, Keshe said that NASA asked him to remove some claims from his site about rapid transport between destinations on earth, due to the disruptive ramifications of that statement.  There are a lot of existing industries that would be rendered obsolete but such technology — if it is real, if they don’t adopt it — including NASA.  Keshe told me he is some 30-60 years ahead of NASA (not including the affiliated black ops who have been using UFO-like craft around for decades).

At the end of our interview, I asked Keshe about the irony of his being Iranian, with Iran being a point of potential war erupting soon.  In defense of his native country, he said that Iran is “a peaceful nation,” and the Iranian government has been very supportive of his technology.  The irony is found in that Keshe, may have the very technology that would not only render war obsolete by introducing abundance where there has been scarcity, but also by removing borders because of how easy it will be to travel between any two points.

It’s likely that many of these assertions about the Keshe technology capability and price are on the way optimistic end of the spectrum, per the inventor pride that is common.  However, there seems to be enough compelling aspects to this account that make it worth investigating further.

Replicating the Coke bottle experiment

On July 24, 2009, Arthur Manelas wrote:

Here’s how I replicate the Keshe Plasma Reactor. Parts that I used:
1. Four pieces of #14 copper wire 8″ long.
2. One plastic clear bottle with a screw cap.
3. 1/2 cup of Seven-Up.
4. 1 tsp. of koh-2 (potassium hydrate)
5. 1 tube of clear silicone.
6. 1 volt meter.
7. 3 resistors, 1 25k , 1 50k and1 100k.

Making the plasma reactor:
Remove the bottle cap from the bottle; drill 4 holes 3/32nd of an inch 90 degrees apart.. Insert the 4 electrodes in each hole. Silicone the holes so that it will make an air tight connection. Make sure the electrodes do not touch one another. Insulate if needed. Take the 1/2 cup of seven-up and mix it with koh-2 and allow 10 minutes for the catalyst to perform. Insert the electrode assembly in the bottle and screw cap tight. Turn bottle on its side and make sure the electrodes do not immerse in the solution. Take the volt meter, set it to measure millivolts. Find out the highest output by touching the different electrodes. It should read around 100 – 175 millivolts. Apply 100 k resistor to the load. Meter should read 120  millivolts; with a 50 k it should be 80 millivolts, and with a 25 k it will read 40 millivolts.

The creation of electrical energy in this reactor is achieved by simple process of hydrogen ionization.

Searl Effect Generator

Searl Effects Generator



by Jeane Manning

When Leonardo da Vinci sketched out an impossible invention, fifteenth-century scholars probably put him down. Forget it, Leon. If machines could fly, we’d know about it.

Throughout history, experts tell innovators that their inventions are impossible. A few examples:
The English Academy of Science laughed at Benjamin Franklin when he reported his discovery of the lightning rod, and the Academy refused to publish his report.
A gathering of German engineers in 1902 ridiculed Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin for claiming to invent a steerable balloon. (Later, Zeppelin airships flew commercially across the Atlantic.)
Major newspapers ignored the historic 1903 flight of the Wright brothers airplane because Scientific American suggested the flight was a hoax, and for five years officials in Washington, D.C. did not believe that the heavier-than-air machine had flown.

Perhaps in the 21st century the following inventions will be standard science, and a history student may wonder why 20th-century pundits disregarded them.


This class of inventions could wipe out oil crises and help solve environmental problems. More commonly called free energy or fuelless electric generators, they put out more power than goes into them from any previously recognized source. No batteries, no fuel tank and no link with a wall socket. Instead, they tap an invisible source of power. Such unorthodox clean energy-producing devices exist today and were built as far back as the 19th century.

Forget the Rube Goldberg mechanical perpetual motion contraptions; they had to stop eventually. In contrast, new solid-state (no moving parts) energy converters are said to draw from an energy field in surrounding space. This source of abundant power is known by physicists as the zero-point quantum fluctuations of vacuum space. Zero-point refers to the fact that even at a temperature at which heat movement in molecules stops cold, zero degrees Kelvin, there is still a jiggling movement, said to be from interdimensional fluctuations or cosmic energy. Magnetism and vortexian or spin-upon-a-spin motions seem to line up these random fluctuations of space and put them to work, as in the Searl Effect (Atlantis Rising, first issue).

Inventors give various names to their space-energy converters. In the 1930s a scientist in Utah, T. Henry Moray, invented a Radiant Energy device powered from the sea of energy in which the earth floats. This sea that surrounds us, Moray said, is packed with rays which constantly pierce the earth from all directions, perhaps from countless galaxies. Converting this cosmic background radiation into a strange cold form of electricity, his device lit incandescent bulbs, heated a flat iron and ran a motor. His sons say he was thanked with bullets and other harassments, but that’s another story.

A spiritual commune in Switzerland had a tabletop free energy device running in greenhouses for years, but members feared that outsiders would turn the technology into weaponry. Before the commune closed its doors to snoopers, European engineers witnessed the converter putting out thousands of watts. However, most other unorthodox energy technologies are still at the stage of unreliable, crude prototypes. (So was the Wrights first airplane; it only flew about a hundred feet.)

The inventor of AC (alternating current) electrical generating and transmission systems, the genius Nikola Tesla (1857-1943), was said to have run a Pierce-Arrow car on a free energy device in the 1930s. Although that’s difficult to document now, we have his word that it’s possible. It is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature, said Tesla.

It may have been done before Tesla’s time. Among the free energy inventions of John Worrell Keely (1827-1898) is the Hydro Pneumo-Pulsating-Vacuo motor that used cavitation (implosion) of water. Although Keely reached an advanced understanding of the science of vibrations, he failed to develop machines which other people could operate. Progress continues from other directions, a company in Georgia is selling water cavitation devices that range from 110 per cent to 300 per cent efficient.

Up in Vancouver, Canada, Tesla researcher John Hutchison says he has a feel for the natural flows of a subtle primal energy. In the spring of 1995 he showed his latest invention to the author and a mechanical engineer. The Hutchison Converter involves crystalline materials and the principle of electrical resonance. He twirls a few knobs to tune it, and the energy flow is amplified until it runs a one-inch diameter Radio Shack motor. The whirring of a small propeller isn’t too impressive until you remember that there are no batteries and the device runs for days at a time.

The garage inventors come from many backgrounds. Wingate Lambertson Ph.D. of Florida, former executive director of Kentucky’s science and technology commission, invented a device which converts the space energy fluctuations into electricity which lights a row of lamps. This dignified former professor took a roundabout route to the free-energy scene. In the mid-1960s he read There Is a River by Thomas Sugree, who writes about the destruction of Atlantis through misuse of a crystal energy collector. Lambertson’s psychic friend later offered to collaborate on replicating the first Atlantean energy converter, but Lambertson eventually turned to his own knowledge of ceramics and metals to develop an energy converter. Neither his nor other known zero-point energy conversion methods of today are based on the first Atlantean crystal method, because the researchers found better methods. Also, the concept of a central power station providing electric power to a nation is obsolete, says Dr. Lambertson. Small energy converters will follow the path of the personal converter.


In Japan, cold fusion is called New Hydrogen Energy, and that oil-dependent nation welcomes successful experiments. In contrast, two pioneering experimenters were hounded out of North America. David Lewis described this scene as Heavy Watergate in Atlantis Rising, issue two.

Update: A successful experiment was served up in Monte Carlo in April, at the Fifth International Conference on Cold Fusion. Clean Energy Technologies Inc. of Florida demonstrated a cold fusion cell with energy output as much as ten times more than input. Other companies are also gambling on this new source of heat energy which could drive electric generators.

What exactly causes atomic nuclei to fuse, and release energy, without extreme high temperatures and pressures? A Romanian physicist writing in Infinite Energy magazine, Dr. Peter Gluck, wonders if it could be only partly a catalytic nuclear effect, and partly a catalytic quantum effect providing the capture of the zero-point energy, The ubiquitous z-p energy.


Another variation on the water-fuel theme relies more on vibrations than on chemistry. At more than 100 per cent efficiency, such a system produces hydrogen gas and oxygen from ordinary water at normal temperatures and pressure.

One example is U.S. Patent 4,394,230, Method and Apparatus for Splitting Water Molecules, issued to Dr. Andrija Puharich in 1983. His method made complex electrical wave forms resonate water molecules and shatter them, which freed hydrogen and oxygen. By using Tesla’s understanding of electrical resonance, Puharich was able to split the water molecule much more efficiently than the brute-force electrolysis that every physics student knows. (Resonance is what shatters a crystal goblet when an opera singer hits the exact note which vibrates with the crystal’s molecular structure.)

Puharich reportedly drove his mobile home using only water as fuel for several hundred thousand kilometers in trips across North America. In a high Mexican mountain pass he had to make do with snow for fuel. Splitting water molecules as needed in a vehicle is more revolutionary than the hydrogen-powered systems with which every large auto manufacturer has dallied. With the on-demand system, you don’t need to carry a tank full of hydrogen fuel which could be a potential bomb.

Another inventor who successfully made fuel out of water on the spot was the late Francisco Pacheco of New Jersey. The Pacheco Bi-Polar Autoelectric Hydrogen Generator (U.S. Patent No. 5,089,107) separated hydrogen from seawater as needed.

A pioneer in breaking down water into hydrogen and oxygen without heat or ordinary electricity, John Worrell Keely reportedly performed feats which 20th-century science is unable to duplicate. He worked with sound and other vibrations to set machines into motion. To liberate energy in molecules of water, Keely poured a quart of water into a cylinder where tuning forks vibrated at the exact frequency to liberate the energy. Does this mean he broke apart the water molecules and liberated hydrogen, or did he free a more primal form of energy? The records which could answer such questions are lost. However, a century later, Keely is being vindicated. One scientist recently discovered that Keely was correct in predicting the exact frequency which would burst apart a water molecule. Keely understood atoms to be intricate vibratory phenomena.


Look, Mom Earth, no power lines!

Tesla may have wanted to voice such a boast, but it didn’t turn out that way; the world is crisscrossed with transmission lines for the electrical power grid. His invention for sending electrical power wirelessly wasn’t too popular on Wall Street.

Before the power brokers figured out what he was up to, Tesla built a tower-topped laboratory near what is now Colorado Springs. He filled the mountain air with thunderous manmade lightning bolts and pounded the earth with electrical oscillations as he tested ideas about electrical resonance. Then he returned to New York to build Wardenclyffe, a complex wooden tower on Long Island from which he planned to send both communications and power wirelessly. When banker J. Pierpont Morgan realized Tesla could make it possible for anyone to stick an antenna in the ground anywhere and get electrical power, the banker cut off the inventor’s funding and blocked other financial deals that Tesla tried to make. Wardenclyffe tower was torn down and sold for scrap.

In recent years, scientists such as James Corum Ph.D. have learned that Tesla did successfully test a wireless system in Colorado. For example, Tesla knew specific frequencies associated with the earth-ionosphere waveguide, knowledge he could not have had in the nineteenth century unless he had sent electrical oscillations wirelessly.


In 1923 Townsend T. Brown’s simple flying discs demonstrated a connection between electricity and gravitation. Working along these lines for twenty-eight- more years, Brown patented (U.S. Patents 2,949,550, 3,018,394 and others) anelectrostatic propulsion method. Starting with two-feet-in-diameter suspended discs flying around a pole at seventeen feet per second, he increased the size by a third, and the discs flew so fast that the results were highly classified, said an international aviation magazine in 1956. Before the end of his life Brown had apparatus that could lift itself directly when electricity was applied. He died in 1985.

The bottom line: if electrogravitics is developed, we could have an electric spacecraft technology which does not obey known electromagnetic principles. The craft would thrust in any direction, without moving engine parts. No gears, shafts, propellers or wheels.

Coupling effects between electricity or magnetism and gravity are shown by other experimenters, including David Hamel of Ontario and Floyd Sparky Sweet of California. At a 1981 symposium in Toronto, Rudolf Zinsser of Germany demonstrated a device (U.S. Patent 4,085,384) that propelled itself, according to credible witnesses such as professional engineer George Hathaway. Zinsser claimed his specifically shaped pulses of electromagnetic waves altered the local gravitational field.

Hathaway collaborated in the mid-1980s with John Hutchison on action-at-a-distance experiments in which heavy pieces of metal levitated and shot toward the ceiling when put in a complex electromagnetic field, and some metal samples shredded anomalously. Visitors to the laboratory came from Los Alamos and the Canadian department of defense. (The military is a quantum leap ahead of the academics in spooky science.)

Read the first issue of Atlantis Rising for a fascinating antigravity story, John Searle’s levity disk generator.


Changing atomic elements or making elements appear mysteriously? It sounds like impossible alchemy, but experimenters recently did this, without Big Science particle accelerators. These scientists learned from a metaphysician, Walter Russell (1871-1963). During vivid spiritual experiences, Russell had seen everything in the universe, from the atom to outer space, being formed by an invisible background geometry. Russell not only portrayed his visions in paintings, he also learned science. He was so far ahead that in 1926 he predicted tritium, deuterium, neptunium, plutonium and other elements.

Recently, professional engineers Ron Kovac and Toby Grotz of Colorado, with help from Dr. Tim Binder, repeated Russell’s 1927 work, which was verified at the time by Westinghouse Laboratories. Russell found a novel way to change the ratio of hydrogen to oxygen in water vapor inside a sealed quartz tube, or to change the vapor to completely different elements. Their conclusion agrees with Russell: the geometry of motion in space is important in atomic transmutation. Kovac shorthands that idea to geometry of space-bending.

These modern shape-shifters speak of Russell’s feats such as prolate or oblate the oxygen nucleus into nitrogen or hydrogen or vice versa. To change nuclei, they change the shape of a magnetic field. Although they used expensive analyzing equipment, it is basically tabletop science. No atom-smashing cyclotron needed; just a gentle nudge using the right frequencies. Focus and un-focus light-motion, create a vortex and control it.

Cold fusion researchers are also running across strange elements popping up in their own electrified brews. No one is proposing to make gold and upset world currencies, but some experimenters aim to clean up radioactive waste by their novel processes.


As Wilhelm Reich, M.D., (1897-1957) moved from Europe to Scandinavia to America, he left a trail of angry experts in every field he explored, from psychiatry to politics to sexology, biology, microscopy and cancer research. His work all led toward one unifying discovery, a mass-free pulsating life-force energy he named orgone, because he discovered it in living organisms before finding that it also permeates earth’s atmosphere.

Reich’s life ended in prison after prolonged conflict with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. His books and papers were burned by federal officials because the FDA had gathered a case against use of his orgone accumulator for therapy. The accumulator is a box made of layered organic and inorganic materials; experiments with it show anomalous results. An unusual temperature rise inside the accumulator indicates limitations of the second law of thermodynamics. Whether or not concentrated orgone can help with health problems, the accumulator does defy standard science.


In 1952 Wilhelm Reich invented a method of rainmaking that doesn’t involve cloudseeding with chemicals. Cloudbusting, otherwise known as etheric weather engineering, invokes principles that are hard for the conventionally trained mind to accept. The technology is low-tech; point some hollow metal pipes at the sky and connect their lower ends into running water. But unless you know both meteorology and orgonamy, please don’t try this at home, on our planet.

Among the properties of the primordial energy, orgone, Reich observed, are its absorption into water, its role in controlling weather and its dangerous state when excited by radioactivity. The planet doesn’t need any more mad-scientist experimenters manipulating natural systems, but it may need a more advanced understanding of what nuclear power plant emissions do to the atmosphere. (Reich’s followers warn that the planet’s life-force is disturbed by the excess radioactivity.)


In the late 1920s Royal Raymond Rife of San Diego invented a high-magnification, high-resolution light microscope. This meant that he could see unstained living cells, unlike the dead specimens seen under an electron microscope. Basically, he developed an electromagnetic frequency generator which he could tune to the natural frequency of the micro-organism under study. Further, he learned that certain electromagnetic frequencies could kill specific bacterial forms.

New discoveries in biophysics not only shed light on the illumination process of Rife’s microscope, they also explain how he could selectively explode viruses. His concept of shape changing bacteria indicates that traditional germ-theory dogma is incomplete. Despite documented cures, his non-drug, painless electrical treatment of diseases was not welcomed by a powerful medical union.


When Patrick Flanagan was a teenager in the early 1960s, Life magazine listed him as one of the top scientists in the world. Among his inventions was the Neurophone, an electronic instrument that can program suggestions into a person directly through skin contact. He made the first Neurophone at age fourteen, out of kitchen junk, his electrodes were scouring pads made of fine copper wire and insulated with plastic bags. He then wired the electrodes to a special transformer attached to a hi-fi amplifier. Holding the pads on his temples, he could hear, inside his head, music from the amplifier. Later models automatically adjusted the signal to resonate with the human subject’s skin as part of a complex circuit. Patent officials said it was impossible for a sound to be heard clearly without vibrating bones or going through a crucial nerve of the ear, and refused for 12 years to patent it. The file was re-opened when a nerve-deaf employee at the patent office did hear with a Neurophone.

At one time Flanagan researched man/dolphin language, on contracts with the U.S. Navy. This led to a 3-D holographic sound system that could place sounds in any location in space. He then perfected a Neurophone model which could be used for subliminal learning that would go into the brain’s long-term memory banks. But after he sent in a patent application on a digital Neurophone, the Defense Intelligence Agency slapped on a Secrecy Order and he was unable to work on the device or talk to anyone about it for five years. This was discouraging, since the first patent took twelve years to get.

Having helped certain deaf people to hear, Flanagan’s next miracle could be to help the blind to see. All we have to do is stimulate the skin with the right signals.

With public acceptance of inventions such as space-energy converters and super-learning devices, perhaps today’s innovators will pull the establishment, kicking and scoffing, into a new world view before the 21st century. However, figure that there will always be experts to say Forget it: such things are impossible.

More space-energy converters will be pictured in a book by Jeane Manning, forthcoming from Avery Publishing Group this winter.

ET’s Ignite a Modern Renaissance Similar to China In Europe 600 Years Ago
By Ed Komarek

My blog:

I am always interested in discovering historical material that helps to better understand this process of humanities integration into extraterrestrial realities. I stumbled across Gavin Menzies book 1434 recently that provides quite a body of evidence suggesting that the European Renaissance was sparked by the overt and covert introduction of advanced Chinese science and technology. This technological transfer from the world’s only real superpower of the period reached its zenith in 1434 when the Chinese fleet that had already explored and mapped the world in 1421 sailed to Italy

I had read Gavin’s first book 1421 years ago, but the evidence he had collected was a bit flimsy and a fishing expedition of sorts, but since then many more historical scholars have become involved all over the world and a huge body of evidence is building supporting his speculations and initial data. (See evidence section ) This is causing a complete rewrite of history for the 1300s and 1400s, even interesting the Smithsonian, and gives us a road-map of the the process by which contact with a more technologically developed civilization integrates into a lesser advanced hierarchical society on earth.

History seems to be once again repeating itself where global rulers are allowing scientific and technological knowledge from extraterrestrial contact to covertly leak out into the public domain for their own benefit, while at the same time suppressing other knowledge that would weaken their hold on power. This exact same process seems to have happened in Europe when the Chinese leaders make contact with European leaders, who supported at the time, severely distorting the historical record as to where these ideas and knowledge originated.

“On the cover jacket Gavin says, “Florence and Venice of the early fifteenth century were hubs of world trade, attracting traders from across the globe. Based on years of research, this marvelous history argues that a Chinese fleet –official ambassadors of the emperor–arrived in Tuscany in 1434, where they were received by Pope Eugenius IV in Florence.”

“The delegation presented the influential pope with a wealth of Chinese learning from a diverse range of fields: art, geography (including world maps that were passed on to Christopher Columbus and Ferdinand Magellan),astronomy, mathematics, printing, architecture, steel manufacturing, military weaponry, and more. This vast treasure trove of knowledge spread across Europe, igniting the legendary inventiveness of the Renaissance, including the work of such geniuses as DA Vinci, Copernicus, Galileo and more.”

This new knowledge uncovered by Gavin Menzies and others clearly shows that learned men with access did not make many of the discoveries attributed to them, but simply copied already existing technological and scientific ideas that had been in use and known in China for hundreds of years. A small part of the huge Chinese fleet sailed to Italy in huge ocean going ships armed with cannon, mortars, exploding bombs, flamethrowers etc. when at the time the European navies were not more that sail and row galleys, armed with archers. One can imagine the shock to the European political and military authorities when they realized they were basically defenseless against such superior military technology.

Not only did this spark the Renaissance, it sparked a arms race to catch up militarily with the Chinese very similar to what we have today after the crashes of extraterrestrial spaceships in the 1930s and 1940s. The Chinese after bankrupting themselves building such a huge ocean going fleet along with other excesses, fell rapidly into decline while the Europeans rapidly became the worlds technological power. There are many lessons from the past that are as applicable today as 600 years ago.

I find it interesting that contact between both humans and extraterrestrials seems to always result in genetic mixing of races. In the 1400s there was also a flourishing slave trade of Chinese slaves mostly young girls to Italy, as many as ten thousand a year. This resulted in a genetic mixing in Italy that reminds me of the forced genetic mixing going on between earth humans and certain races of aliens today in what I call the abductee alien slave trade. In both cases the autocratic authorities approved and facilitated such abhorrent forms of human trafficking.

I believe extraterrestrials have ignited a modern global renaissance in science and technology the likes of which has not been seen for 600 years. When the Chinese ignited the Renaissance they were just as alien and technologically advanced in relation to the Europeans as extraterrestrials are to us today. European political, military and religious leaders acted is very similar ways to exploit the technologies involved while at the same time suppressing the real source of the information and other information that would weaken their hold on power.

In both cases the initial cultural shock was quickly replaced with the emotions of fear and greed. In 1434 the military feared the advanced gunpowder weaponry and naval capabilities of the Chinese that quickly sparked a rapid gunpowder arms race and naval buildup that resulted in the European voyages of discovery and colonization. In 1947 the discovery of extraterrestrial weapons and advanced ET space fleets resulted in a rapid space and arms race resulting in a multi trillion dollar secret space fleet. The greed side of the equation kicks as economic power figures out how the new information could be exploited for the benefit of the the ruling classes at the expense of the lower classes.

In both cases the famous learned men of their time became complicit in cooperating with the ruling classes to suppress certain knowledge and to fraudulently take credit for the inventions and scientific discovers that were not theirs. How this was done 600 years ago is explained in 1434 just as Col. Corso explained how it was done after 1947 in the book, The Day After Roswell.

For those who would study the evidence accumulated in the book 1434 and on the website, it is obvious that Leonardo DA Vinci, Santini, Taccola, Di Giorgio all took credit for inventions and scientific discoveries that were not their own. Just compare the similarity of the illustrations in chapter 16. Furthermore the laws of celestial mechanics to Copernicus, Kepler and Galileo were know by the Chinese and used to create a very accurate calender in 1280 for Kublai Khan (page 23 -28) that was later adopted by the Europeans. This calender required very complex astrological calculations of the earth’s rotation, varying speeds around a elliptical orbit around the sun, etc. The Chinese had even noticed moons around Jupiter visible to the naked eye in certain locations in China in 364 B.C..

How can we account for such similar political reactions and responses by the authorities of both periods and their learned servants? I think the answer is inherent in autocratic rule that is driven in a large part by fear, deception and greed and is by nature insecure as leaders can fall from power just as quickly as they rise to power. Obviously any democratic or populist countermanding force has been far to weak in both cases to have any significant immediate check on autocratic power and societal exploitation of the technologies involved. This even at the great expense of the overall evolution of society as a whole.

It remains to be seen if the situation will change over the longer term in regards to extraterrestrial knowledge due to democratic disclosure rumblings and extraterrestrial disclosure activities by the ET’s themselves. If the Chinese source for this advanced scientific and technological knowledge in 1434 could be effectively covered up for 600 years, 60 years seems a very short time. But on the other hand just as Chinese advances in printing technology helped to rapidly integrate Chinese advanced knowledge and fuel the Renaissance, so too the Internet seems to be not only uncovering old Chinese-European secrets but now ET secret classified knowledge is being uncovered and distributed to the public as well.

Type I, II, III Civilizations

A graph of Kardashev scale values during the l...

An excerpt from the book of Michio Kaku

Futurology, or the prediction of the future from reasonable scientific judgments, is a risky science. Some would not even call it a science at all, but something that more resembles hocus pocus or witchcraft. Futurology has deservedly earned this unsavory reputation because every scientific” poll conducted by futurologists about the next decade has proved to be wildly off the mark. What makes futurology such a primitive science is that our brains think linearly, while knowledge progresses exponentially. For example, polls of futurologists have shown that they take known technology and simply double or triple it to predict the future. Polls taken in the 1920s showed that futurologists predicted that we would have, within a few decades, huge fleets of blimps taking passengers across the Atlantic. 

But science also develops in unexpected ways. In the short run, when extrapolating within a few years, it is a safe bet that science will progress through steady, quantitative improvements on existing technology. However, when extrapolating over a few decades, we find that qualitative breakthroughs in new areas become the dominant factor, where new industries open up in unexpected places.

Perhaps the most famous example of futurology gone wrong is the predictions made by John von Neumann, the father of the modern electronic computer and one of the great mathematicians of the century. After the war, he made two predictions: first, that in the future computers would become so monstrous and costly that only large governments would be able to afford them, and second, that computers would be able to predict the weather accurately.

In reality, the growth of computers went in precisely the opposite direction: We are flooded with inexpensive, miniature computers that can fit in the palm of our hands. Computer chips have become so cheap and plentiful that they are an integral part of some modern appliances. Already, we have the “smart” typewriter (the word processor), and eventually we will have the “smart” vacuum cleaner, the “smart” kitchen, the “smart” television, and the like. Also, computers, no matter how powerful, have failed to predict the weather. Although the classical motion of individual molecules can, in principle, be predicted, the weather is so complex that even someone sneezing can create distortions that will ripple and be magnified across thousands of miles, eventually, perhaps, unleashing a hurricane.

With all these important caveats, let us determine when a civilization (either our own or one in outer space) may attain the ability to master the tenth dimension. Astronomer Nikolai Kardashev of the former Soviet Union once categorized future civilizations in the following way. A Type I civilization is one that controls the energy resources of an entire planet. This civilization can control the weather, prevent earth- quakes, mine deep in the earth’s crust, and harvest the oceans. This civilization has already completed the exploration of its solar system. A Type 11 civilization is one that controls the power of the sun itself. This does not mean passively harnessing solar energy; this civilization mines the sun. The energy needs of this civilization are so large directly consumes the power of the sun to drive its machines. The civilization will begin the colonization of local star systems.

A Type III civilization is one that controls the power of an entire galaxy. For a power source, it harnesses the power of billions of star systems. It has probably mastered Einstein’s equations and can manipulate space-time at will. The basis of this classification is rather simple: Each level is catergorized on the basis of the power source that energizes the civilization. Type I civilizations use the power of an entire planet. Type II civilizations use the power of an entire star. Type III civilizations use the power of an entire galaxy. This classification ignores any predictions concerning the detailed nature of future civilizations (which are bound to be wrong) and instead focuses on aspects that can be reasonably understood by the laws of physics, such as energy supply.

Our civilization, by contrast, can be categorized as a Type 0 civilization, one that is just beginning to tap planetary resources, but does not have the technology and resources to control them. A Type 0 civilization like ours derives its energy from fossil fuels like oil and coal and, in much of the Third World, from raw human labor. Our largest computers can- not even predict the weather, let alone control it. Viewed from this larger perspective, we as a civilization are like a newborn infant.

Although one might guess that the slow march from a Type 0 civilization to a Type III civilization might take millions of years, the extraordinary fact about this classification scheme is that this climb is an exponential one and hence proceeds much faster than anything we can readily conceive.

With all these qualifications, we can still make educated guesses about when our civilization will reach these milestones. Given the rate at which our civilization is growing, we might expect to reach Type I status within a few centuries.

For example, the largest energy source available to our Type 0 civilization is the hydrogen bomb. Our technology is so primitive that we can unleash the power of hydrogen fusion only by detonating a bomb, rather than controlling it in a power generator. However, a simple hurricane generates the power of hundreds of hydrogen bombs. Thus weather control, which is one feature of Type I civilizations, is at least a century away from today’s technology.

Similarly, a Type I civilization has already colonized most of its solar system. By contrast, milestones in today’s development of space travel are painfully measured on the scale of decades, and therefore qualitative leaps such as space colonization must be measured in centuries. For example, the earliest date for NASA’s manned landing on the planet Mars is 2020. Therefore, the colonization of Mars may take place 40 to 50 years after that, and the colonization of the solar system within a century.

By contrast, the transition from a Type I to a Type II civilization may take only 1,000 years. Given the exponential growth of civilization, we may expect that within 1,000 years the energy needs of a civilization will become so large that it must begin to mine the sun to energize its machines.

A typical example of a Type II civilization is the Federation of Planets in the “Star Trek” series. This civilization has just begun to master the gravitational force-that is, the art of warping space-time via holes-and hence, for the first time, has the capability of reaching nearby stars. It has evaded the limit placed by the speed of light by mastering Einstein’s theory of general relativity. Small colonies have been established on some of these systems, which the starshipEnterprise is sworn to protect. The civilization’s starships are powered by the collision of matter and antimatter. The ability to create large concentrations of antimatter suitable for space travel places that civilization many centuries to a millennium away from ours.

Advancing to a Type III civilization may take several thousand years ore. This is, in fact, the time scale predicted by Isaac Asimov in his c Foundation Series, which describes the rise, fall, and re-emergence of a galactic civilization. The time scale involved in each of these transitions involves thousands of years. This civilization has harnessed the energy source contained within the galaxy itself. To it, warp drive, ad of being an exotic form of travel to the nearby stars, is the standard means of trade and commerce between sectors of the galaxy. Thus although it took 2 million years for our species to leave the safety of the forests and build a modem civilization, it may take only thousands of to leave the safety of our solar system and build a galactic civilization.

One option open to a Type III civilization is harnessing the power of supernovae or black holes. Its starships may even be able to probe the galactic nucleus, which is perhaps the most mysterious of all energy sources. Astrophysicists have theorized that because of the enormous size of the galactic nucleus, the center of our galaxy may contain millions of black holes. If true, this would provide virtually unlimited amounts of energy.

At this point, manipulating energies a million billion times larger than present-day energies should be possible. Thus for a Type III civilization, with the energy output of uncountable star systems and perhaps the galactic nucleus at its disposal, the mastery of the tenth dimension’ becomes a real possibility.

Introducing the Galactic Federation

(The following article was written earlier and is reproduced here for the benefit of readers new to this site on Disclosure Day in September)

The people we’ll be listening to in this article are extraterrestrials of human origin – our space family.

Some, like SaLuSa of Sirius, will tell us that they are detailed by the Galactic Federation of Light (GF) to speak on its behalf. SaLuSa says:

“I am SaLuSa from Sirius, and I along with my companions represent the Galactic Federation where contact with you is concerned.” (1)

But the Galactic Federation are not the only extraterrestrials here to help us. Many coalitions are here. Hatonn is an example of an extraterrestrial human who serves a wider role, coordinating all interdimensional communications.

Speaking through Suzy Ward, Hatonn says he serves “as director of communications between Earth and all points elsewhere during the era of Earth changes.  You may know of me as commander of an intergalactic fleet.  That is another of my ‘hats.’” (2)

They and other spokespeople communicate through terrestrial mediums at regular intervals.

For simplicity’s sake, let’s restrict our attention to the GF for the moment.

According to them, members of the GF are enlightened beings drawn from advanced civilizations. They ascended aeons ago after passing through a period of evolution similar to that to which we are headed in 2012 or sooner.  (3)

Says SaLuSa: “We of the Galactic Federation are charged with looking after Mankind and [ensuring] your upliftment and safe journey through to Ascension.” (4)

In our galaxy, the GF is the single largest space-faring group. It liaises and cooperates with other ETs  in peacekeeping and other aspects of service to the Light. Its work is carried out in Love for all life and respect for the freewill of all beings.  (5)

Membership in the GF is only granted to civilizations that have achieved ascended or unitive consciousness. (6)

Our link with the GF goes far back in our history, a fact known to scientists and historians but kept from the general public. Contact reaches to recent times when it established close connections with some of us, such as George Adamski and Billy Meier. (7)

They’ve assisted us in ways that were not obvious, but otherwise have allowed us to find our own way as part of our need to develop spiritual discrimination.  (8)

SaLuSa tells us that terrestrial humans most resemble Sirians, Pleiadians, and Venusians, with whom we are genetically linked.  (9)

According to Ker-On of Venus, the dark forces in control of this planet have portrayed the idea of contact with “aliens” as opening the door to a hostile takeover. In reality, the ones projecting that image hid behind it while they did exactly what they accused the GF of wishing to do. (10)

The present mission started during and after World War II, when terrestrials exploded nuclear bombs which wreaked havoc with interdimensional space. It increased around two decades ago, after an event known as the Harmonic Convergence.

Until recently, the GF has observed us closely and intervened only when Heaven or the GF itself thought it necessary. Without the help of the GF, according to terrestrial spirit teacher Matthew Ward, Mother Earth’s body would have died and none of us would be here today. (11)

Says Atmos of Sirius: “We of the Galactic Federation are … fully aware of our role in the end times. We await our orders to proceed with the final open contact with you…. We work with your Mother Earth, and the Inner Earth Beings [of Agartha], and together we represent your release from the last gasps of the dark forces.” (12)

Of their role, Mira of the Pleiades says: “[During] the next few years, we will be with you. We will be standing face-to-face, shoulder-to-shoulder. We will help shoulder the burdens of change. We will work with the ground crew to lay the fertile field of the New Earth.” (13)

Huge fireball likely large meteor that may have left debris

Huge fireball likely large meteor that may have left debris

April 15, 2010 9:53 PM

A fiery ball of light witnessed by thousands as it swept over the upper Midwest Wednesday night was almost certainly a large meteor that probably left a trail of debris across southern Wisconsin, asteroid experts say.

The path of the meteor was tracked by Doppler radar at two National Weather Service stations, in the Quad Cities and at LaCrosse, Wis. 

“It has the appearance that is completely consistent with being a bright meteor,” said Mark Hammergren, an Adler Planetarium astronomer who specializes in asteroids, after viewing the Doppler images.

The object, which lit up the sky shortly after 10 p.m. Wednesday across parts of Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois and Wisconsin, was very likely a piece of an asteroid, a rocky planetoid formation that orbits the sun, he said. Almost all meteors come from asteroids.

It almost certainly was not from debris trailing a comet or part of a meteor shower associated with a comet, as earlier reports have speculated, Hammergren said.

“We won’t know for sure until we get specimens” of whatever the object was, if pieces of it survived the fiery plunge through the Earth’s atmosphere, he said. But it was so large, he said he was fairly certain some may be found. Technically, if pieces of a meteor survive the impact, they are known as “meteorites.”

There was no “space junk” satellite debris that would have de-orbited into the atmosphere over that part of the U.S. Wednesday night, said William Ailor, director of the Center for Orbital and Reentry Debris Studies at the Aerospace Corporation in California, ruling out that it could have been a piece of an old satellite.

According to the weather service’s Milwaukee office, officials there, in LaCrosse, Wis., Davenport and Des Moines, Iowa, and in St. Louis and Kansas City, Mo. received “numerous reports of a fireball” about the same time people began contacting Milwaukee area officials about the flare.

National Weather Service radar in LaCrosse, Wis. showed the object at between 6,000 and 12,000 feet, heading from northwest to southeast over Grant and Iowa counties.

(The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences has a series of time lapse photos of the event as seen from Madison; an Iowa sheriff’s department captured video of the flash that’s been posted on YouTube.)

Christine McMorris was in her Woodstock home Wednesday evening looking out of her kitchen window as she washed dishes and talked with a friend when she noticed a bright light coming from the sky.

“All of a sudden out of the corner of my eye, I saw this huge ball of fire and a huge light,” said McMorris. “I was like, what the hell was that?”

She had seen many shooting stars during her travels to the western United States. But last night put those to shame, she said.

“They are minuscule compared to this, it was enormous,” she said.

She said as the meteor traveled closer to the surface, its intensity diminished until she lost sight of it during the approximately five to 10 seconds it took to drop. She said it didn’t have a tail.

“It was truly spectacular,” she said.

Becky Hoffman, who lives on a farm near Dixon, said she and her husband were getting ready for bed when they looked out and saw a “big glow” in the sky. She found it strange because the air was clear of storm clouds. She said she is about an hour and a half from the Wisconsin border and noticed the light north of her home.

“We thought it might have been a transformer blowing up in the area,” she said, but she dismissed it because she did not hear any explosions.

She said it was a reddish orange glow to it and she didn’t think anything of it until she turned on the radio this morning and heard that it was a meteor.

“That’s what it was, I saw it,” said Hoffman. “I thought it was pretty exciting, I just want to know where it ended up at. Did it disintegrate into the skyline or did it actually hit ground?”

In a statement on its Web site, the National Weather Service office in the Quad Cities said: 
“Just after 10 pm CDT Wednesday evening April 14th, a fireball or very bright meteor was observed streaking across the sky. The fireball was seen over the northern sky, moving from west to east. 

“Well before it reached the horizon, it broke up into smaller pieces and was lost from sight. The fireball was seen across Northern Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and Southern Wisconsin. Several reports of a prolonged sonic boom were received from areas north of Highway 20, along with shaking of homes, trees and various other objects including wind chimes. As of late Wednesday evening, it is unknown whether any portion of this meteorite hit the ground.”

Hammergren said the apparently large size of the meteor indicates pieces may well have survived and hit the ground.

“The strength of this was comparable to others where multiple fragments have been recovered, he said, guessing that as a meteor prior to hitting and exploding in the atmosphere may have weighed “hundreds of pounds”.

Similarly sized meteors have produced meteorite fragments from the size of grains of sand to fist size and football-sized chunks. 

Meteorites are so highly prized by scientists, collectors and dealers, that teams of searchers already are preparing to go to an area in southwest Wisconsin where fragments most likely would have crashed into the ground, he said.
