according to science. a bumblebee can t fly. but like the bumblebee. Yet. The only thing more common than people who keep trying to build such a device. I am aware of the laws of conservation of energy.. I acknowledge that it will always be impossible to build a perpetual motion machine. since any such machine must have a beginning. Yes. it can t be done. I don t know if the Wright brothers knew this. etc. disqualifying itself from being true perpetual motion.

If you look it up. complete with valid mathematical equations..©2010 David N. that say it is impossible to make a free energy device. I have a copy of a page from an 1898 Encyclopedia Britannica (courtesy of Aurora. Nobody ever really believed in an energy shortage anyway. are the everpresent naysayers who will always be there to say. The difficult we do right away. and we pursue it religiously. you d find it means. they went ahead and did it anyway. without beginning or end. that prove heavier-than-air flight is impossible. In this light. the promise of fusion means building a sun small and secure enough for our use. the impossible takes a little longer.

. 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. As you will see. Or. Spin the center and elecricity would be generated in the coil of wire. I later added a second arm to get more power and balance.

Although this never influenced my work. As you will see later. 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.I had to include a picture of Hero s Engine to show the similarity of design and function.

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

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

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

permanent magnets are not used. whether north to north or south to south. Since the use of permanent magnets would create an impossible maintenance problem keeping rust and other debris from the rails. This is called magnetic levitation. Like particles repel. This means if you have two magnets and try to connect them together at both north poles. . they grab each other and stick together. The proper term then. Many of us have seen. If you have two magnets and try to connect a north and a south pole together. ridden on or at least heard of. is electromaglev. for ElectroMagnetic Levitaion. Instead. 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. Opposites attract. maglev trains and monorails. since one can be made to float above the other with negligible friction. This area where they will not join together. is called a magnetic bearing. they will push each other away and the same happens if you try to put two south poles together. If you cut or break a magnet in half. Maglev is simply a shortened version of Magnetic Levitation. but will repel each other.What is a Magnetic Bearing? Most of us know that like particles repel and opposites attract . the two parts will not join 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. the armature was easier to make with right angles. Here. In this design as well as my First Attempts design at the beginning of this paper. I have already added a second arm to the first for more power and balance. I had wanted more of an S shape for the armature to give it a direction of spin.

The Catalyst Lightning! .

It rides on an electromaglev bearing.How it Works Before being charged. Polarity N S or  N S S N N S . 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.
