. The difficult we do right away. The only thing more common than people who keep trying to build such a device. are the everpresent naysayers who will always be there to say. they went ahead and did it anyway.. disqualifying itself from being true perpetual motion. etc. the promise of fusion means building a sun small and secure enough for our use. I acknowledge that it will always be impossible to build a perpetual motion machine. it can t be done. and we pursue it religiously. Craig Acknowledgements-With Apologies What is the true meaning of the term perpetual motion ? If you look it up. I am also aware of the fact that.. Illinois attorney Gary Shilts) that has an excerpt on aeronautics. Yes. that prove heavier-than-air flight is impossible. complete with valid mathematical equations. since any such machine must have a beginning. etc. without beginning or end. I am aware of the laws of conservation of energy. I don t know if the Wright brothers knew this. Yet. you d find it means. a bumblebee can t fly. Nobody ever really believed in an energy shortage anyway. I have a copy of a page from an 1898 Encyclopedia Britannica (courtesy of Aurora. but like the bumblebee. In this light. that say it is impossible to make a free energy device. the impossible takes a little longer.©2010 David N. according to science.

Or. I later added a second arm to get more power and balance. Spin the center and elecricity would be generated in the coil of wire. As you will see. . It was several years before I learned that replacing the outer ring of magnets with a coil of wire would make it a working motor or generator.Note how the arms on my first attempts resemble the arms of the current version. send electricity into the coil of wire and the center will spin like a motor.

I had to include a picture of Hero s Engine to show the similarity of design and function. the electromagnetic field in the finished product is different than what was done in the First Attempts model. it is notable how the repelling effects of escaping steam mimics the repelling effects of like magnetic poles. Although this never influenced my work. . As you will see later.

Since I already had prototypes. almost like the intake and exhaust of a jet engine. because if that were true than perpetual motion would be possible. I guess that means that what I see with my own two eyes is not really happening. I pointed this out to an electronics professor and he replied. No. That doesn t happen. both pieces of steel stick to each end. please try it yourself. you can t get something for nothing.Current Magnetic Field Theory If you type magnetic field. If you don t believe me. since the steel will still stick to both ends regardless of any explanation you offer. no. I said it was possible. There must be a logical explanation why one of them does not fall off. I am not interested in having someone try to explain it. What s wrong with this picture? The problem with the picture above is that if you put a piece of steel on each end of the magnet. schematic into your web browser you will see an image similar to the one below that shows the lines of force travelling in one end and out the other. Some 30-odd years ago. however. . one of them must fall off. He responded with.

In high school we had a biology teacher answer questions about why perpetual motion wouldn t work. When I announced my intentions to my parents. I never did get a bolt of lightning to hit one of my prototypes. that s what you should do. David. I wrote them twice in 5 years asking permission to put my device near theirs. The package contained two plastic Scottie dogs (still available from Johnson Smith Co. She said. I did not work on it nonstop over the years. He did say it should be possible in outer space where there was no gravity. it s dangerous. cheap enough for everyone to afford and last a long time. 1-800-826-8125) with a magnet in the base of each one. but offered no ideas on how to do it. The free energy device in this paper is the result. the reply was stop what you re doing. I actually got to this point at age 22 (I am now 58). my mom was thrilled. and in each case. Magnetism is the key to everything. Gravity would cause drag. While playing with them at the table. but other events happened that influenced my interest in magnetism. They did not tell me to stop paying taxes so they couldn t have it either. I spent 12 years and tens of thousands of dollars while renting a farm trying to get lightning to hit one of my devices using weather balloons and some very expensive kites. In a nutshell. but all backed out citing liability for damage or injury. I can t just walk outside when the weather looks promising and try again. Michigan and wound up getting back to Aurora Illinois on fumes. bearings are subject to friction and other reasons. I had also arranged with managers of local radio stations to put one near the lightning rod grounding cable of their large antennas.A Tale of Two Doggies Many moons ago. Since I no longer live on a farm. The University of Florida was using TOW wire-guided missiles for their lightning experiments. . but in 5th grade (1963-64) I had made my First Attempts model at the beginning of this paper. I don t know exactly when that was. I decided then and there that no one would ever do this to the United States again and set about learning about power generation. figure out magnetism. my father brought a gift home for one of my sisters who had stayed home sick from school. and no you can t use our (federally funded) equipment. my mom set down the guidelines by telling me it should be simple. During the Arab oil embargo of 1973 I was returning from a trip to Spencer.

like a car motor. Putting in a new armature was easy enough. I started wondering how ancient man could have done it. When electricity comes in through the coil of wire surrounding the shaft. My theorizing may be wrong. but I recalled that the pyramids were once covered or capped with gold an outstanding lightning rod! . the electromagnetic field in the coil of wire causes the magnets or electromagnets to repel. It has the magnets or electromagnets needed to turn the shaft in a motor. but work in opposite ways. the armature is turned by something else. wouldn t they produce a magnetic field to levitate the armature? YES! The next problem was how to start it? I came up with lots of ideas over the next few days. or spin away. putting generating coils at each end was no longer a problem since both ends were removed. I could put another magnet on each side of it near the end coils and it would float on a magnetic bearing. Taking both ends off a motor. as were the brushes that transfer electricity to the shaft.. frictionless unit. but realized I would have to completely saturate the entire unit with electricity all at once. along with the bearings. As a fan of Erik von Daniken s Chariots of the Gods . Suddenly the coils and magnets were in the way of each other.Is it a Motor or a Generator? It s both! A simple combination of a motor and a generator in one single. the armature came out too. a waterfall or steam pressure from a nuclear reactor. The armature in the motor is what spins when electricity is turned on. The friction causing bearings were gone too. At this point. but how could I stabilize it without a shaft and bearings? If the armature was made out of a magnet. A motor and a generator are built almost identically. In a generator the magnets or electromagnets on the shaft spin to generate electricity in the coils of wire around it. I started with an electric motor and figured there was room on each end for generating coils. If the generating coils of wire had electricity running through them. too. In a generator.

whether north to north or south to south. This area where they will not join together. Instead. This is called magnetic levitation. permanent magnets are not used. electromagnets are used so that when they are shut off the magnetic field disappears and any debris that would normally stick to the rails falls off. Maglev is simply a shortened version of Magnetic Levitation. The proper term then. Like particles repel.What is a Magnetic Bearing? Most of us know that like particles repel and opposites attract . . is called a magnetic bearing. for ElectroMagnetic Levitaion. This means if you have two magnets and try to connect them together at both north poles. ridden on or at least heard of. Many of us have seen. but will repel each other. If you have two magnets and try to connect a north and a south pole together. Opposites attract. Since the use of permanent magnets would create an impossible maintenance problem keeping rust and other debris from the rails. maglev trains and monorails. If you cut or break a magnet in half. the two parts will not join together. is electromaglev. they will push each other away and the same happens if you try to put two south poles together. since one can be made to float above the other with negligible friction. they grab each other and stick together.

Intoducing: The Prototypes Key is to show scale. .

The Components 2 generating plates Armature Key shows scale Motor Ring Fusion aficionados may note that the motor ring/generating-plate disk assembly forms an electromagnetic bottle skeleton'. but whether building it with a Tinkertoy® or machining it from copper. I had wanted more of an S shape for the armature to give it a direction of spin. I have already added a second arm to the first for more power and balance. In this design as well as my First Attempts design at the beginning of this paper. . the armature was easier to make with right angles. Here.

The Catalyst Lightning! .

the armature rests on the bottom. the armature repels off the bottom. After being saturated with electricity. top & sides and starts spinning in a direction opposite the way the arms are pointed.How it Works Before being charged. It rides on an electromaglev bearing. Polarity N S or  N S S N N S .

It s rather amazing how many people think the energy crisis is a hoax and at the same time will insist that what you have will not work. unless I got enough requests to allow me to have them mass produced.00 ea.
