Why is it not here yet?
“There is a difference between progress and technology, progress benefits mankind. Technology does not necessarily do that.”
Technology is arguably the most tangible form of human development. We can only imagine what it must have been like to discover that we can use a burning stick to… well, burn other things. Fire is an amazing tool that is still used throughout society everywhere. Technology is not the only aspect of human development and evolution, though. The evolution of our consciousness plays the leading role in what kind of technologies can be invented, built and implemented in society. Consciousness decides how we view the world and what we hold to be ‘the truth’. Philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer once said:
“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”
Take the example of the steam engine. In the First Industrial Revolution, people laughed at the idea that a big chunky metal machine on tracks could go faster than a man on a horse. Next, they were quite afraid that, should the train actually go any faster, the heads of its passengers would be ripped off due to the sheer speed. Finally, steam engine locomotives became so common that we didn’t know how to live without them (see also the aeroplane, the computer, the cell phone).
Technology seems to race ahead faster than we can keep track of. Here lies a lesson to be learned: if we want to implement amazing new technologies into society, we have to be very mindful and aware of what it means to implement them. A knife can stab you in the eye, or it can cut your veggies. It’s a good idea to base our technologies on what we feel is morally right, and use them in that way. Let’s get back to our story about Free Energy technology and why it’s keeping us waiting.
“It takes a tremendous spiritual discipline to remain objective and humble in the presence of a working Free Energy machine.”
Four actors in the Free Energy theatre
Greatly inspired by Dr. Peter Lindemann’s paper titled “The World of Free Energy”, we can point out that it is a little too simple to say that there are Big Bad Oil Companies holding all kinds of magical technology back from us. While this may be the case, it is more constructive to look at the root of the issue: a scarcity mindset in our collective consciousness. This mindset reigns supreme in four actors playing in the Free Energy arena, preventing the technology from breaking through.
Firstly, we have to realize that energy is value in our economy. Anything that requires work (which is energy) or materials (also energy) has value. We also have a fiat currency system, which consists of bills, coins and bank balances representing an amount of energy. We are giving our consent to authorities like central banks to control this representation of value. In a sense, that is a good thing, because now we don’t have to worry about the nature of value on a daily basis. The downside is that a lot of value is getting into the hands of those who already own a lot, and that these people like to keep it that way.
What if we would have a device with which we could generate all the energy we need? All of a sudden, we can create value outside of economic control. To be honest, we wouldn’t need an economic authority anymore, because true value would be abundant instantly. Money would lose its energy-related value, and thus we don’t need anyone to control it. That doesn’t sound like a good idea to the institutions controlling wealth and value. Naturally, they try to avoid this scenario at all costs: money is power! Not because they are necessarily bad and evil, but because they consist of people like you and me, and a scarcity mindset leads to greediness and a fear of losing control.
Secondly, we have national governments who are very much concerned over the state of “national security”. In some ways, governments can be friends, but in another way, governments can be jockeying to be part of the group of cool governments, and to become the best government. Not unlike a pack of edgy teens, really. A government doesn’t like it if another has any real advantage over them. Free Energy technology is such an advantage. It could very well skew the balance of power, which poses a threat to national security. So if one government can’t get it, no one can.
For the first two actors, the resistance to Free Energy expresses itself in a number of ways. This includes making the life of a Free Energy inventor very difficult, but also restricting what kind of science can be pursued, discrediting any disruptive breakthroughs and controlling what the general public gets to see. See our Inventor Database (coming soon) if you’re looking for examples.

Thirdly, there’s science itself, both inside and outside the Free Energy movement. Mainstream science has brought us many insights and technological progress. However, it can get kind of grumpy when its fundamental theories about how the world works are seriously challenged. Even Einstein had a very hard time bringing his radical ideas to bear.
The notion that we can suddenly pull energy from every point in space around us sounds too much for most scientists, because if it were true, they feel that they should have known about it. Entire careers are built upon not knowing – or not caring – about many groundbreaking technologies. You can’t just go ahead and tell a nuclear power physicist that his life’s work is a waste, now that we can pull energy from the ether. And if you do, you’re probably met with fierce criticism, or laughter, or both. The reality is that scientists could have gotten into Free Energy, were it not for the label of quackery, the fear of being ridiculed, harassed, or losing their job. Again, the scarcity mindset brings about these emotions based on fear.
The field of Free Energy itself is also fraught with dishonesty and greed. If you can make it look like you made a Free Energy device, you can sway a lot of people to spend money on you. Do a YouTube search on Free Energy, and ninety percent of what you find will be fakes or videos discrediting fakes. Scientists do like to seek the truth – that’s what science is about. But in the end, scientists are humans first, scientists second.
The final actor is the rest of us. Like we said, it’s easy to point fingers at greedy bankers, paranoid governments or lousy scientists. But they are just people. And somewhere along the line, we have chosen to put our faith in these actors to play a leading role in the game we call life. Better yet, the motives of these actors, whether it’s fear, greed, want for power or control still hide in our own minds. Meanwhile, the collective desire to live in a world of love and abundance is not strong enough yet. We are now reaching a tipping point at which we realize that the systems we put in place do not serve us and the planet anymore. The ‘trick’ is to not be afraid to lose the comfort of the old ways, but to see the win-win-win situation in the new world! Mankind is in the phase of eating away the remnants of its cocoon. Once we have trust and let go, our cocoon will break open for a beautiful butterfly to spread its wings.
