Please forgive me cathiecat for not addressing this sooner. Professor Searl's invention was initially discovered by him back in 1946. He was 14 years old at that time and had recieved help from a wealthy man who, though had been stricken with terminal cancer, had taken a liking of the the young man. Though I'd love to say what I really want to say as to why the United States has chosen to ignore this technology I'll tone it down and try not to hop on top of my SOAP BOX. The biggest industry that this country is still allowed to have is the OIL INDUSTRY. The oil industry is run by the best captains of industry in the country. The oil industry, is an energy producing industry that is out to use up every other country's oil reserves first, then use our oil reserves for last and make a big killing. Did you recall the announcement last year that Exxon made more revenue than ever. They made a killing. Now imagine if this Searl Effect technology was backed by some people with real money. There would be nothing less than total corporate warfare for control of that invention! If the oil companies failed to acquire it they would next have to make sure that nobody else had it in their possession either, because inventions like that have a habit of growing legs of their own and taking off and running into a whole new industry. Example: The Diesel Electric Locomotive manufacturers vs. the Old Steam Locomotive manufacturers. In the end Diesel Locomotives won out in that battle. Searl has been within a hair's breadth of that happening only to be betrayed by is former wife. He's only just getting a decent head of steam on the comeback trail. Unfortunately there are many people out there who do not want Professor Searl to succeed with his invention without them being the one's who make a killing off his hard work and thus get a free ride out of him. So between simple greed and corruption in England and the oil companies black balling and harrassing our local inventors, we see little or no break throughs in the area of free energy. Please note that if we did have free energy we sure as @&*t wouldn't need oil now would we? That's not to say that we haven't had our fair share of inventors in this field of physics. Nichola Tesla (The Arrow Motor Company Free Energy Electric Car), Thomas Henry Morrey [sic?](Free Energy device that tapped into highly active radio frequencies and produced Free Electric Power), Paul Adams (The Adams Motor Switches Magnetic Polarity and interacts with the Earth's magnetic field), Thomas Voley [sic?] (The over unity N-machine reaches 27000 rpm and starts cranking out more power than what goes in) and many more. Now before everybody decides they want to jump on silly old Vangarian's doo-doo and say poo-poo. I have something to say to you-you. The 2nd law of thermo-dynamics is violated every time an H-bomb goes off. If you conclude that the system involved with the H-bomb being started by an Atomic bomb is a closed system then it leaves no room for more energy coming out than what was initially invested. Many will no doubt argue that all we had to do was take into account the energy source from the hydrogen/dueterium/tritium when it went fusion and released energy from 1/100th of its mass and they would be correct. But what if we didn't know that? Our philosophy would prevent us from making the critical attempt. Searl didn't assume anything. He found out for himself and got supreme results. That's why I say with extreme prejudice that the UNIVERSE IS NOT A CLOSED SYSTEM!!!!!!! On my next entry I'll attempt to describe the Searl Effect Generator and how it works. Until then be safe out there, everybody. Vangarian out.
