Where does the energy come from?
So, there is an energy field that we can’t really see or touch, but that is so fundamental that without it, nothing would exist? Certainly. And we can tap into it to power our civilization indefinitely? You bet. Science has been searching for a long time to unify all of its theories into one ‘Theory of Everything’. In this quest, many have suggested that there is only a single source of energy responsible for our existence. This source has been called the ether since Antiquity, among other names. It’s a field of energy that connects everything to everything else, and maintains all forms of energy: every atom, every molecule, every human and every star in the cosmos. It is usually hidden and unmeasurable for us, though, because it lies on the ‘background’ of our reality. But this field explains many yet unsolved scientific mysteries. How can light propagate through empty space? Where does the electron get the energy to ‘spin’ around an atom nucleus indefinitely? Why does the universe expand at an ever accelerating rate?
Modern science has re-discovered that empty space, the vacuum, really isn’t empty, but is packed with chaotic, yet unordered energy. With this idea, science is returning to the notion of the ether, after it became somewhat unpopular around the turn of the twentieth century.
“Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point of the universe.”
Quantum physics and zero-point energy
Without dwelling on its buzzing history too much, we can say that the ether has undergone a renaissance with the introduction of quantum physics: the field of physics that studies the smallest building blocks of the universe. It deals with protons, electrons, photons and even smaller particles, and how these are weirdly both a particle and a wave at the same time. In fact, all particles are really just waves – like waves on the ocean – stretching out over infinite space and time. Whether they act like a wave or a particle depends on our way of looking at them! If that isn’t mind-boggling enough, quantum physics also forces us to revise our notion of empty space.
Apparently, if we try to cool down an atom all the way to the absolute zero-point in temperature, zero degrees Kelvin, the atom still retains a minimum amount of energy. No matter how hard we try to suck the energy out of the atom, it is somehow supplied with energy to maintain a certain vibration, and to maintain the speed of the electron spinning around the atom core. Moreover, we never really reach zero degrees: it’s impossible! That’s why scientists call this minimum energy level the zero-point energy. It is an energy which seemingly comes out of nowhere, and as such, we have to conclude that this energy field is a fundamental feature of empty space itself. That’s why we can also call it vacuum energy. Empty space is bursting with it.
Really, bursting with energy? How much? Does it ever run out? To be honest, we really don’t know. Many savvy minds have broken their brains to answer these questions, and only came up with estimations. Paul Dirac, one of the founders of quantum physics, estimated the vacuum energy to be gigantic, and hence it was called the ‘Dirac Sea’. Two other famous physicists, John Wheeler and Richard Feynman, proposed that there is enough energy in the volume of a light bulb to boil all of the worlds oceans. That’s enough energy to supply the whole planet with electricity for more than a million years! Yet others have proposed vacuum energy to be actually infinite. But scientists don’t like the word infinite. It breaks their equations and calculators.

How do we harvest this energy source?
We now know that everything consists of waves of energy vibration. To harvest the energy from the vacuum of space, we simply have to convert the wave of the zero-point energy to a wave of energy that is useful to us – electricity, for example. A nice way to do this is through the process of resonance. If you strike a wineglass, you will hear a nice ‘ting’ sound. Now, imagine a good singer singing loud and close to the wineglass at exactly the same frequency as that ‘ting’ sound. The glass will start to resonate – it will vibrate on its own – because the sound waves in the voice and in the glass amplify each other. Eventually, resonance can become so strong that the glass breaks. Now, the idea of Free Energy devices is to get into resonance with the ether, the vacuum energy field.
Another key aspect of Free Energy technologies is overunity, which means that we get more useful energy out of the device than we need to run it. That way, the device can run itself indefinitely and have energy to spare to run anything you want! But hold your horses, we’re not creating energy from nothing here: according to Old Lady Science that’s still impossible. Overunity can only be achieved in an open system, where an external energy source supplies the device with energy. Think again of the example of a windmill or a solar panel – both are open systems. Free Energy devices are just open systems that work with the ether.

What about those ‘devices’?
Over the past century and even before, a whole range of different Free Energy devices has been built. You will find many examples in the Inventor Database (coming soon). We’ll just give a few examples here.
A classic form of Free Energy is a solid-state device, meaning that there are no moving parts. This really is the Holy Grail of Free Energy, since the amount of maintenance needed is almost zero. Prime examples of such devices are Tesla’s Wardenclyffe Tower, Thomas Henry Moray’s Radiant Energy device and Tom Bearden’s Motionless Electromagnetic Generator. It’s not the device itself that ‘moves’, but a finely tuned electromagnetic field that is fluctuating in such a way that it comes into resonance with the ether, and thereby amplifies the electrical output of the device.
Another well known form which has been replicated many times is the permanent magnet motor. These motors use a specific geometrical arrangement of strong magnets in a rotor (the part that rotates) and the stator (the part that doesn’t move). By giving the rotor an initial spin, a self-sustaining magnetic field arises which keeps the rotor spinning indefinitely. It is theorized that the whirling magnetic field draws in energy from the ether. Some devices allow a dynamo to be attached to the spinning rotor, such that mechanical energy can be converted to electricity. Examples of this concept are Howard R. Johnson’s motor, Muammer Yildiz’ motor and the motors produced by the company InfinitySAV.
There is also a way to extract energy from water in a very efficient way. Maybe you’ve seen what electrolysis can do in a science class. By applying electricity to water, we can split the water molecule (H2O) in its constituents, hydrogen and oxygen, a mixture which can be burned very neatly to produce a lot of heat and the rest product of – yet again – water. But there is a way to use the resonant frequency of the water molecule, such that the splitting of the molecule costs way less energy than the energy gained by burning the hydrogen-oxygen mixture: overunity! That way, people have managed to convert their standard gasoline engines into engines that run on water only. Examples of this are Daniel Dingel’s water car, Herman P. Anderson’s spark plug converter, Stanley Meyer’s water buggy and Genepax’s water car.
These different forms of Free Energy are just the tip of the iceberg. There are also forms which make use of plasma (ionized gas), Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR, also known as ‘cold fusion’) and even gravity and inertia. We could write a whole book about it. We might actually do that sometime. Meanwhile, follow your own curiosity!
