Tesla Free Energy

Postby Lausten » Tue Sep 06, 2016 7:34 pm

Who knows what's going on here?

I doubt the kid is trying to scam anyone, he just doesn't know what he's doing. I'm guessing this isn't scalable, that it's a neat trick for lighting up your kid brother, but no practical application.

But does anyone know? How much energy can you harvest out of thin air?

I made a crystal radio when I was a kid, but didn't know you could do anything with that other than pick up radio waves. He says something about getting "static" energy, but that seems to be where he is slipping into the lie.

We'll, it's a different way to steal your neighbor's WiFi, to be sure...

I predict that he used a hidden battery.

Ummmmm....

The suppression of free energy devices and technology by the energy industry and by the government is an established fact of our world.

It's all true - the kid's wearing a white lab coat.

I read the YouTube comments, something I've cut back on quite a bit. There were many, many "wow, you go kid" comments, quite a few "can I have the schematic", then a few "it's a crystal radio, you're all idiots".

I know you can run a radio just by using the power that comes from the radio waves, but how do you convert that to regular current to light up your brother? The no power radios I've seen use low power earphones. And I never tried one out in the country, far away from radio towers. So it seems like the kid has figured out how to get energy out of the air in places where there is already a lot of energy being generated. This doesn't help anyone really, but I just don't know the numbers, like, how much copper would you need to power anything worthwhile, like a refrigerator?

I think you are being very naive, Lauston. He might be just a kid, but it is a swindle. If anyone could get the much energy from 'nothing', it would turn the whole world of science over on its ear. Any I have not seen even a hint of that in the several science mags I subscribe to. It is a trick to suck in the gullible.

I submit that just because you don't know how to do it or haven't seen it done doesn't mean it can't be done. I never cease to be amazed at the knowledge that our species has accumulated which has been lost, corrupted, hidden or destroyed in an attempt to keep us where those in power would rather we remain.

Converting ambient energy into electricity.
Check out the book: "22 Radio and Receiver Projects for the Evil Genius"
The circuit has been around for a REALLY LONG TIME.
I'd post the circuit here but I'm new, and not sure if that can be done or how.
It's not going to "power your house" but it will light up neon bulbs.

I built the circuit YEARS before it came out in this book, and it will easily light up a bunch of neon bulbs that use almost NOTHING with the addition of a small capacitor. And by the way, this has NOTHING to do with Tesla. Why is it that everyone out there who thinks they have something that works hangs Tesla's name on it?

I believe that free energy does exist. I believe that the first law of Conservation of Energy (not to be confused with the first law of thermodynamics, although they ARE closely related) isn't necessarily even violated. It states that: "The total amount of energy remains constant in an isolated system." Meaning you cannot ADD TO IT nor TAKE FROM IT. It IMPLIES that energy can neither be created nor destroyed (in an isolated system) but does NOT state that it cannot be created or destroyed, although that is what everyone assumes. But what if their assumptions are incorrect? What if you CAN create energy within an isolated system. What if all it took was an understanding of how electricity works and then practical application of things we already know how to do. At least ONE circuit I have worked with appears to prove that within an isolated system, energy CAN be created in a manner familiar to ALL of you. The problem with an "isolated system" is then getting the power OUT. You can't, not if the system is truly isolated. All you can do is USE the power in an isolated system to PRODUCE power in a SECOND circuit.

Turion

As in everything related to reality, as opposed to fantasy, it must be demonstrated. It has not been demonstrated. If it were, every newspaper and magazine, radio and TV program, and on line site would be screaming about it.

If a claim appears impossible and there is no empirical evidence, the rational thing is to treat it as probably wrong.

11Turion, I suggest you do a rough calculation of the power available from radio signals in your immediate area, at which point you will find that even if you don't know how to do it or haven't seen it done makes no damn difference to the fact that you can't do it. Conversely, if it could be done, everyone walking through your local area at a steady pace will have their wrists fried.

Could you favor us with any list at all of the knowledge that has been lost, corrupted, hidden or destroyed?

Ambient energy./// It wouldn't "be there" if somebody didn't do the work to put it there......except for solar, space radiation. Not the radio waves that power lightbulbs.

Earth is not a closed system.

You can convert radio transmissions into electricity, but it's not "free energy". The loss of power makes it extremely ineffecient.

https://phys.org/news/2011-08-rectenna- ... icity.html

https://itstillworks.com/make-electrici ... 19790.html

Doing so will block the radio waves further down the line, however:

http://www.dxradio-ffm.de/heiligenstock.htm (translated into english: https://translate.google.com/translate? ... edit-text= )

Resourceful allotment gardeners near the Heiligenstock used broadcast energy for other purposes: using their own garden fence as an antenna, they attached a copper wire to it and connected it to a pole of a light bulb socket. The other pole was grounded and the lamp was lit. In the evening they used it to light their gardens. Since this was so outrageous that the transmission energy was so much dampened that after a few kilometers a reception of the Heiligenstock transmitter was hardly possible, finally, a law was enacted that forbade such tinkering.

A local man got in trouble for illuminating a light bulb from a mattress of copper wire he had hidden in his wall. The power company successfully sued him, saying he was stealing power from their power lines.
