The New Mission to Learn the Lost Secrets of Electricity

Report from the Front: Tracking the News of the Coming Energy Revolution

Would human civilization be closer to a golden age now if electrical science had never abandoned the road that could have led to aether-fueled technologies?

I’ve had most of the summer to ponder such questions, inspired by the Bedini-Lindemann conference. The answer that keeps coming up is “Yes. It’s never too late to retrace our steps, leave the road-to-nowhere that relies on fossil fuel burning and atom-smashing technologies, and get back to harmonious ways of working with nature instead of destroying it.”

Each of the presenters at the Bedini-Lindemann conference in Idaho acknowledged how much they learn from great minds of a past era, especially from the genius of Nikola Tesla.

Eric Dollard, the speaker described as the most knowledgeable person today on the true nature of electricity, explained, in the context of a rich history, Tesla’s vision of the system we call the power grid.

Peter Lindemann later said this about Dollard’s presentation: “Starting with electricity’s deep roots in the natural world, the story begins with an overview of the natural order of energy and consciousness, which all aboriginal people recognized their embeddedness in. And it was this same recognition of the connection with nature that allowed Tesla, Steinmetz and others to bring forward this world-altering technology…”

Lindemann says Dollard’s lecture gave him a new appreciation of electricity. In Dollard’s view, we have been brainwashed into taking for granted the miracle that is alternating current (AC) power. His study of the history led him to conclude that, from the beginning of the electrical power grid, General Electric only wanted enough known about the system so that people would use the power, enjoy the convenience, and pay the bill. Aspects of the system that revealed greater advantages and deeper insights into nature were ignored and obscured.

You don’t have to have been at the conference to get the insights on Tesla’s AC system. Lindemann’s and Aaron Murakami’s business venture A & P Electronic Media sells downloadable videos of the conference presentations, including Dollard’s “Four Quadrant Representation of Electricity.”

Lindemann’s own talk was titled “Open System Thermodynamics,” but like Dollard’s it was by no means as dry as the title. With obvious enjoyment of the topic, mixing humor with history, Lindemann laid out his philosophy on why he believes “free energy” is everywhere. He pointed out where likely errors are in today’s closed-system model of thermodynamics. Critics of free-energy claims rely on that “no free lunch” model when they insist that an inventor’s claims are impossible and therefore not worth investigating.

There is another way of looking at thermodynamics. Lindemann noted that Belgian physicist/chemist Ilya Prigogine won the Nobel Prize in 1977 for a new open-system model of thermodynamics.

Lindemann also talked about how to harvest energy from the environment and even how to re-use energy to raise the over-all efficiency of any machine. Recycled energy is something you don’t have to pay for, so it’s in effect free energy.

Several other featured speakers gave the how-to, the technical details on how they raise the efficiency level of electrical and mechanical systems that they build.

John Bedini didn’t merely talk; in live action at the front of the lecture hall he demonstrated advanced ways to use his “SG”—a working system that demonstrated his claims! I can’t do justice to describing it in this short article that I’m writing under challenging circumstances (boxes piled around my desk and moving day approaching this week), but I recommend that experimenters around the world learn from the DVDs of a longer pre-filmed version of his presentation. They are sold through Tony Craddock’s “Energy From the Vacuum” series instead of A & P because Bedini is under a contract with Craddock’s company.

As I see it, Bedini gave his audience new keys to energy independence via how to make a super-efficient, battery-charging system that can be used in combination with free energy from the sun or wind.

His presentation started with the story of how the “Schoolgirl Motor” or battery energizer—now dubbed the SG Machine—came into being (see the April 2013 issue of Atlantis Rising for an account of it.) He is the inventor and patent holder, and for the first time publicly he sketched the circuits for three variations of how to operate the SG—modes that had not previously been explained.

He described the evolution of his thinking since 1955, which was when he began painstakingly to develop his concept. In technical terms, the system is an apparatus that produces battery power by charging one or more secondary batteries from a single primary battery and that captures and uses what Tesla called “radiant” energy.


Coral Castle Creator’s Legacy

On a separate topic, Bedini at an earlier conference had mentioned secrets of magnetism contained in pamphlets and drawings by the Latvian recluse Edward Leedskalnin, who died in 1951. Leedskalnin mysteriously built the Coral Castle structures in Florida out of huge blocks of limestone. He made other things that no one else could create singlehandedly or without an advanced education, including a working AC electric generator. Leedskalnin’s methods and accomplishments continue to baffle engineers.

At this year’s Bedini-Lindemann conference, another industrial electronics expert, Paul Babcock, demonstrated a Leedskalnin experiment that can’t be explained by establishment science. It wasn’t part of Babcock’s presentation; he brought the apparatus for attendees to play with and be baffled by.

I visited the laboratory of the Babcock brothers’ company Flyback Energy Inc., near Spokane, Washington, a month after the conference. That visit gave me much more to write about than I can cover here, so I’ll limit this report to what Paul Babcock told me about Leedskalnin’s brilliance.

Babcock had built a model of Leedskalnin’s magnetic motion holder—a certain arrangement including iron bars and batteries as a source of power for creating electromagnetism. The establishment theory says that when the source of electricity is closed off, a piece of iron bar stuck to the device will instantly fall off. But in the device I witnessed, even when the electrical circuit is cut and there’s no electromagnetism, the iron doesn’t drop off.

Leedskalnin had explained it as a continuous flow of magnetic particles running in a loop of iron. Once started, the flow will continually run around the loop and maintain a magnetic bond strong enough to hold iron. If the experimenter flips the wiring to change polarities, the particles repel each other and the iron drops.

“That blows the modern scientific view of magnetism right out of the water,” said Babcock. “This simple experiment says ‘You’re wrong.’”

Establishment science sees magnetic forces and says they don’t contain mass. “Leedskalnin says no, they’re gyroscopic particles,” Babcock explained. They never stop spinning or orbiting and their motion drives the universe. In the future that perpetual motion can be harnessed for energy.

Such experiments have many enthusiastic followers on the Internet. As to his own views, Babcock sees Tesla’s concepts of Radiant Energy as correct, and also he subscribes to the gyroscopic-particle theory of Mississippi inventor Joseph Newman and to Leedskalnin’s perceptions.

“Where their theories meet is where I like to be… It’s about perspective and how these particles … interact and thread themselves together.”

The magnetic particles are in constant motion spin and interlace, interacting with each other as they also orbit. “So everything is like cloth—it’s all made out of the same stuff, but we take threads and stitch the different pieces together, and that’s what electromagnetic and electrostatic forces are, and they’re gyroscopic particles.”

Babcock said it was difficult for him to put into words the bigger picture that he has in his mind after years of study and experimentation, but he gave it a try. “The ether field is the field of unbound gyroscopic particles; it’s where they meet and transform into electromagnetic force and particles.”


Tesla’s Secrets

Professional engineer Jim Murray’s talk was titled “Tesla’s Hidden Secrets.” He is one of the few inventors ever to get a U.S. patent on a “low drag” electrical generator, based on the principle of resonance. Tesla’s work with the principle of resonance and his other advances to electrical science are well known, but Murray sheds light on Tesla’s discoveries about gaining mechanical power, and now Murray’s sharing of them is available.

One implication of Murray’s rediscovery of Tesla’s finding that mechanical power is relative to the “reference frame” within which it is created is that the knowledge can lead directly to the development of amazingly efficient “mechanical amplifiers.”

Atlantis Rising readers will appreciate Murray’s personal story as expressed in his articles on an archived Internet site. His early personal experiences and later research made it impossible for him to ignore evidence of a greater golden age that once existed on Earth and equally impossible not to search for definitive proof of its existence. “I know that Atlantis will one day be found, but not beneath the depths of the sea! It lies hidden in the open right before our eyes, where it has been for centuries.”

Even as a young preschooler, Jim Murray was captivated by photographs of the Sphinx and the pyramid complex at Giza. They seemed oddly familiar to the boy and stimulated memories. He didn’t get to travel to Egypt in person, but his study of books and manuscripts led him later to the mathematics of the pyramids and the use of Pi and Phi in architectural designs of antiquity.

“Captivated by the implications of lost knowledge, I launched my own investigations into the origins of Sacred Geometry and discovered many incredible things.”

Murray respects the wisdom and accomplishments of the ancients, and in his article “Ancient Monuments” he says those people had greater knowledge than the experts of today, particularly in certain of the sciences, arts, and mathematics. He sees this also in matters of the Spirit.

“All this lends great support of the age-old legend of the lost continent of Atlantis and to many other great civilizations that have vanished from the face of the earth leaving only tantalizing vestiges of their greatness to stimulate imagination.”

Murray was born into a family of lawyers and politicians so he obviously learned communication skills, and he pursued science and engineering from an early age. The result is a rare combination of gifts—expertise in technical knowledge and his discoveries such as the Power Oscillation Principle, and some writing skill for communication of soaring thoughts and intriguing true stories.


Sparks Aren’t the Point; Radiant Energy Is…

In the exhibitors’ room during one day of the conference, sparks flew, apparently from the type of electricity that Nikola Tesla called Radiant Energy. As a result, in another area of the venue (the fraternal organization Eagles’ lodge in Hayden, Idaho), the microphone for the local Eagles’ game of Bingo suddenly quit.

Attendees of the conference, however, cheered the demonstration, which had disrupted electronics in the building, because the disruptive experiment was meant to study Tesla’s wireless power transmission of direct current through free space. Tesla’s U.S. patent 649,621 is the one using single-wire transmission of electrical energy and a vacuum tube. It sends out a strange field that can be felt as pressure or as a prickly tingling in your hands but which does not electrocute handlers of the setup.

Last-minute help from Eric Dollard added to the drama in the exhibitors’ room. Mark McKay had assembled the parts to make that experiment, including rare vintage equipment. McKay welcomed the expertise of Dollard, who had, in 1986, replicated Tesla’s wireless transmission.

Nikola Tesla was not the only one whose imagination soared and took him into the virtual laboratory in his mind where he clearly could see his inventions operating as if they were already in the physical world.

I’ve interviewed a few innovators in our era who have abilities similar to Tesla’s—to tap into the greater field of awareness. If society wants it, I believe that they could help lead the human family back to an ether-powered future.

People don’t ask for what they don’t know about, so that’s where grassroots education efforts such as the Global Breakthrough Energy Movement comes in—making society aware of alternatives that generally aren’t covered in the mainstream media. I’m looking forward to the Global BEM Conference in Boulder, Colorado, on October 10–13.
