Since we are asking your support to keep ZPEnergy.com alive and revive a project I proposed more than 7 years ago, The Xtreme Science Foundation, I decided to re-publish some of the posts from that time to refresh the memory of our "older" readers and bring it in focus to our new patrons. To my amazement, most of my statements from that time are still valid today! Makes me wonder, what would've happened if The Xtreme Science Foundation project succeeded seven years ago? ... would the world be different? ... for better or for worst?
I'll start with my responses to a New Energy Movement (NEM) study questionnaire: FRONTIER PHYSICS ALTERNATIVE ENERGY DEVELOPMENT QUESTIONNAIRE (June 2007):
[NEM] Free energy can be defined very broadly as any energy
that is provided by the natural world and is
accessible anywhere in the world. This
definition covers both conventional and unconventional forms of renewable
energy, ranging from well-known solar and wind technologies to relatively little
known technologies or processes such as low-energy nuclear reactions, zero point
or magnetic energy.
This study focuses on the unconventional forms of free
energy and uses the definition of “free energy” provided by Keith Tutt in his
excellent book The Search for Free Energy.
‘Free energy technologies’ or ‘new energy technologies’
are names given to an unusual collection of diverse technologies which share at
least one major trait. They are all, generally, fuelless technologies that do
not consume a substance in order to produce energy. . . . These inventions
involve magnets, electro-magnets, electrostatics, solid state electronics, water
cavitation, low-energy nuclear reactions, catalytic nuclear reactions, charge
clusters, pulsed plasmas, radiant energy. The list is long, but not
The second common claim of these technologies is that
they are somehow gaining energy from a new source. Many claim to be
‘over-unity’: in other words, when provided with an energy input, they
subsequently generate or release an output that is larger than their initial
input. There are also machines which claim to have ‘closed the loop’ and used
some of their excess output to feed their input – so creating a self-sustaining
machine….The systems are doing at least one of two things: they have either
found – as in the case of some cold fusion cells – a new way of
accessing chemical, nuclear or other forms of energy locked up in the system’s
component parts; or …. they are getting their energy from the ‘zero-point
fluctuations of the vacuum’. This zero-point energy is the ‘background’ or
‘ether’ energy of the universe.
A short-hand term for these technologies we will use in
this study is “frontier physics alternative
The Survey asks two types of questions:
1. General questions about the current state of the
2. Questions about particular technologies or
What are your views
regarding the reasons why the unconventional forms of free energy have not yet
been released to the world?
The lack of
adequate proof of concept (most important/critical/essential
Assuming that successful unconventional FE experimental
set-ups (devices) exists (and I believe they do), undeniably proving that to the
world is all it would take (in the present planetary circumstances) to usher a
new era in the human evolution. What Steorn is doing now is one way to
accomplish this. My Extreme Science Foundation (XSF and XS-NRG prize) proposal is another (I
think better) way to do it.
operation in the O/U mode.
Many experimental devices/setups are not yet fully
controlled in their O/U operation mode. There is no clear understanding of what
triggers the “O/U state” and what happens when the unit trips out off that
special condition (the “why”?). Without stable and consistent O/U functioning,
there is no marketable product. Very few investors are willing to support
possible many years of [mostly empirical] research to overcome this
The lack of a
proper theory to explain the O/U operation.
Very few scientists are actively involved in the
theoretical study of this ubiquitous, permanent, nonzero [extremely dense]
source of energy in the Universe called ZP/Vacuum Energy. Unfortunately, this
type of research is still considered by the present scientific community and
media an unacceptable departure from the conventional thinking, and consequently
ignored (or worst, ridiculed). A theoretical understanding of what/how to excite
and organize the local vacuum for extracting useful energy, would quickly
“resolve” both problems mentioned above.
Secrecy Act, Inventor/Investor greed, “MIB”
No need to comment on the first two; we all know they are
real … valuable patents are being buried because our governments “national
security” paranoia and/or vested interest greed. Greed is also responsible for
the inventors choosing to take their invention into the grave with them instead
of giving it to the world for free or to investors for less money than they
hoped for. The MIB active (physical) suppression? … Possible, but I’m still to
be convinced of that.
What could be done to make
it more likely for inventors and scientists and their supporters to achieve
breakthroughs in this field? What forms
of support are needed?
The single most
important thing that would quickly and certainly achieve the breakthrough in
this field is a “proper proof” that O/U technologies are real.
proof = scientific validation + world-wide,
effective media coverage
“government legislation” as well as “private investment” support routs have
miserably failed so far, the next logical step is involving “the public” to do it. Access to the
general public is much easier these days through the wide spread penetration of
the traditional media (written, radio and TV). But, the advent of the internet
suddenly allowed the “connected” public to be aware of and get directly involved in many more aspects of the world’s
“affairs” (such as influencing the democratic decision making process and the
move of considerable funds in the commercial and financial sectors, among them).
Successful businesses can be set up and public/media mobilization/influencing
can be done, with almost no funds required, using the Internet these
constitution of an international
nonprofit reputable organization with the main purpose to carry out independent, objective, unbiased and widely
accepted scientific validation of "private research" in the field of
unconventional new energy technologies is the first needed step (to gain
acceptance & credibility). It will serve as an open access podium for all
inventors/innovators out there to present their work for proper and honest
validation (conducted for free and under NDA). It will also act as a vehicle
through which donors will reward and
promote those revolutionary technologies that prove to be viable, that
otherwise would have great difficulty finding recognition and financial support.
Once the general public and the academia are challenged with the reality of the
fuel-less energy technologies, nothing will stop their rapid
development and penetration in our day to day life. Theoretical physics will
soon experience an explosive (r)evolution and concepts such as anti-gravity,
inertia control, warp drive and worm holes space travel, teleportation and maybe
time travel will all come down from the “fringe” into respectable leading edge
scientific research…. but I digress…
Science Foundation (XSF) proposal
goes into the details of how such an organization should be formed and function.
It also proposes an innovative way of
private-public funding which is a key aspect for the success of such an
enterprise. I have sent the synopsis of the XSF proposal privately to selected
knowledgeable people in the field, some members of the NEM as well (NEM tried
the “government legislation” avenue, but I was willing to bet it would prove a
dead end). I had the privilege to talk to Joel Garbon personally. No commitments
or plans to help (concrete action) were received from anyone so far (words of
What role could NEM play?
What is needed to make NEM more effective in carrying out its mission to
“promote the rapid widespread deployment of advanced, clean, and sustainable energy sources”?
important thing that NEM can do is: FIND THAT ONE INVENTOR with a Working O/U
Prototype Device and convince him/her/them to be the “flag bearer(s)” for
the new revolution in the power-generation field … and change the world as we
know it (which is not
doing well anyway, but it is primed & eagerly awaiting such a news!).
Having at least one such inventor on board, attract
reputable scientists, media and business personalities, politicians, etc.
(skeptics or not, but open minded people) to form an XSF type organization. NEM
is perfectly positioned to do that very efficiently (if there is the will …
since very little funds are needed so far).
Announce through a strategic media campaign the
constitution of this organization and its scope, and how the public can get
involved to finally find the truth about FE and, at the same time, encourage unrestricted contribution of ideas for
a rapid return to a sustainable future for all life on this planet. A smart campaign will secure enormous
funds, when people understand how this organization operates (I see no problems
for NEM to accomplish that … my XSF proposal details all these steps and how to
accomplish them with trivial initial expenses … and I‘m happy to send it to all
those interested to get involved).
Properly validate, promote and reward (XS-NRG
prize concept) the selected working device and its inventor(s)… and the rest will be
history. Through the feedback I get on my ZPEnergy.com website,
I know that establishing a network of independent, professional/accepted
“validation centers” all over the world won’t be a major problem (certainly not
for the NEM.).
This is not the place to elaborate on or analyze my views on what must be done and how
to end, once and for all, the gridlock FE movement finds itself in for decades.
I have given you my honest/practical “2c” answers to the questions you asked,
with the hope that NEM is genuine in its quest for resolving this awkward
situation in which exposing the truth may literally change our civilization
overnight, or, disappoint many of us, but at least will let us move on to
something less “amazing” than FE, but more realistic/pragmatic to resolve our
nr.1 global problem: Energy.
[Vlad]: ZPEnergy.com was the first (2001) PHP type (open access)
News-Portal dedicated to the “fuel-less energy” topic, in particular to
ZPE/Vacuum Energy research and technologies. It was designed to “take care” of
all the steps required to connect inventors with those who can help, in one way
or another, with bringing these revolutionary technologies to the market (see
our mission statement).
During these 6 years, probably hundreds of news articles
about alleged working FE devices were posted and commented upon (pro and/or con)
on ZPEnergy’s main page or the Forum. Private correspondence and feedback proves
that many more claims are out there, but their inventors want to (or are forced
to) remain anonymous (wish I have to respect). From what I know, none of these
claims have been properly confirmed
I admit, I just run a new-energy news site to educate the
general public that such research exists, and it is not just self deluded
pseudo-scientists or con-men, but a
serious quest by honest and highly trained, down to earth, but open minded
individuals. I have not pursued personally any of the claims that I was
made aware of. I still hope some of them are “the real deal” and I can only
invite you to research our archives for more information on such possible
Of course, aside from my XSF suggestion for the NEM, I’ll
be happy to help your organization in any way I can, as long as a bit of hope is
left there and you’re also honestly fighting for
