Zero Point Energy AKA Gettting Something for Nothing

Getting more energy out than you put in is a common theme in management. Under pay your workers and get more of their time. Contribute to a politician's campaign and get a contract that only costs you a fraction of a percent of what you donated. I've been thinking of oil and water rights after my last post.

Found those interesting sites in my last post. One of which led me to thinking about trying out Adsense. I ended up stumbling across a video with "secret" techniques and such. And clicked a link to a video that I guess is about the same concept. You should check it out. It's old news from 1995. I've never seen it before. And it's curious how no one talks about it when they talk about hydrogen.

Equinox - It Runs on Water (Free Energy - 1995)

What I would really have liked to have seen is one of those devices powering itself. Take the hot water/steam supersonic pump for example. It could have been split to run part of the steam back to spin the shaft directly or to a turbine to power the motor. Now that would have been some perpetual motion worth seeing. Even feed the steam back into the supersonic pump after passing it through a turbine. If it could keep above 100% output even with a turbine. It would be interesting to see how long it would take a closed loop steam system to explode from the continually increasing pressure from the ever hotter steam.

I have several theories on what's happening. The frequency based ones may be tapping into either an extra energy overlaid/embedded in the electricity. Supposedly there is a medium through which all energy passes. Does AC or DC make a difference? Or is it something inherent to electrons? Sort of like QED(Quantum Electro Dynamics) the Theory of Light. Specifically, the fact that photons are going in every direction at once but the directions at the edge cases are canceling each other out. You can broadcast electricity over a the air at certain frequencies. Maybe electricity from earth's core is operating at these frequencies and only needs a catalyst stream of electricity operating in that frequency range to tap into it. No I'm not joking. It's called the Earth Magnetic field and it's very real. In fact the way the earth spins it might as well be a planet sized turbine.

Another possibility is that the frequency stuff is tapping in the Earth or the Sun's or the black hole at the center of the galaxy's gravitational field. Maybe the research into gravity has it all wrong. Maybe it's all just electrons and the force of nuclear attraction and repulsion. Maybe gravity is just electrons expressing attraction at a different frequency. Meaning that the perpetual and relatively free force that is gravity is just electricity as a frequency that can be brought back into phase by electricity running at a similar frequency.

I have another theory that involves the fact that gravity seems to me to be a force without a cost. Where is the energy for gravity coming from. Energy in is equal to energy out. Does that mean that gravity by it's very nature is using zero point energy? If that's true and it's expression is electrons and it's unlimited then it's just a matter of tapping into it. The Earth already converts the gravitational force of the Sun to a spin which generates the planet sized magnetic field. The Sun is an expression of gravitational energy by the process of it's own formation.

If you forget for a moment everything we've been taught about the scarcity (scare tactic?) of resources and thereby energy one might see all the free and virtually unlimited energy all around.

One day I'm going to stick a waterwheel in a stream and generate my own electricity just for kicks.

The Coming Hydrogen Economy - A Ranting Diatribe About Our Propaganda Economy

link to my orignal comment on Techdirt

I'm posting my comment made on Techdirt in response to a fluff piece of propaganda about the wake of the ethanol subsidies. In my comment which you can read below I forgot to attack the premise of the article/propaganda. So here goes. Big corn/big ethanol/big oil wants to cut out the subsides for corn because they don't really grow all the corn but they do control all the ethanol refineries. So what this peice of propaganda is saying is get rid of the corn subsidies. That part is a no brainer. The why is the better part. Big ethanol will still get it's new and ever increasing subsidies to make ethanol out of corn. At which point they hope to lower the price of corn again and screw the average farmer. But big corn won't suffer because they have politicians in their pocket who will make private subsidies just for big corn. And with that added little insight I give you my original comment:

Ethanol and Big Corn and Big Oil

Connect the dots people. Our politicians haven't supported an alternative fuel much less mandated it's use ever. And big oil has more money than ever to throw around and squash any alternatives. So guess why they didn't stop ethanol? They are the same company and raising the price of corn while getting a subsidy to grow it is ok with big oil if you are a subsidiary of big oil.

When corn based ethanol was about 96 cents a gallon on the commodities market and Brazilian sugar cane based ethanol was about 52 cents a gallon big oil/corn had congress pass about a 44 cents tax on Brazilian sugar cane based ethanol.

52 + 44 = 96 Get it?

It's not a conspiracy just economics. Big corn is so tightly bound to big oil and has been since the days of refer madness. Corn is a crappy crop. Corn leeches all the nutrients out of the soil. Corn needs tons of fertalizer made from ammonia a by product of the oil refinery process. Big oil likes corn. That is why corn is subsidized. Other crops like hemp which magically got grouped with the canibus ban are much better producers as a crop and leave the soil in better shape than when they were planted. i.e. No need for ammonia based fertilizers. Big corn had hemp crops burned to the ground after the hemp tax stamp act/scam was created. By our government not issuing hemp tax stamps even to this day all hemp crops with out the hemp tax stamp are illegal. There is no process in place to get a hemp tax stamp. Our tax dollars at work. Squashing the open market one cheap and environmently friendly product at a time while funding propaganda to make it all seem like common sense.

Back to ethanol. Ethanol has always been an alternative fuel. Bo and luke Duke were always on the wrong side of the law for selling/producing it. Remember that episode with the super fuel? They ran their car on it. Imagine that a no toxic fuel that is better than gasoline but runs in cars without conversion. And its been available all this time. What a big surprise that it's only been legal on farms for farm nachinery use only all this time. Big oil have a hand in it? Kind of a rhetorical question. So that 10% ethanol mandate they sell with their propaganda and we eat it up. They used to let you have 0% ethanol in your tank and now they let you have 10% time to celebrate. Ha, not very funny.

And what exactly did you think farm aid was about or did you get short term memory loss from all that corn syrup in everything you eat. First we bankrupt small farms because those people are outside of the system. That means they are self sufficient or didn't you know they stick blue dye in farm based ethanol in farms? If you were from a farm town you'd know because the cops would be pulling you over periodically to check your tank with a stick to see if your fuel was blue. Big oil can't go letting the free market keep your money out of their pockets. That would be unamerican. Then the banks/oil/big growers swoop in and pick up all that land cheap and grow corn on it in preparation for ethanol. Corn based ethanol being the only way for americans to pay for their gasoline several times over via subsides on corn.

Watch Who Killed the Electric Car? if you want to get your head around the hydrogen economy propaganda. Wind power is already getting squashed by the new requirement that the FAA has to approve new wind towers. See hemp tax stamp above for a clue. i.e. put a windmill in your backyard and expect the same treatment as the Dukes of Hazzard get.

I mean what kind of idiot doesn't see all the free energy sources provided as side effects of the sun all around them everyday. It made me think why doesn't every city with a river accessible to them harness that power with a water wheel or 300? It is renewable and for all practical purposes unlimited and free. Are they that unobservant or are they hamstrung by big oil. Cause you can bet after our politicians give out water power rights the same as they did for oil to big oil you'll be paying for it twice at a minimum and be thanking them for doing it because of the propaganda.

Common Gentoo Problem with Solution

In Gentoo GNU/Linux you usually compile all of your packages. It takes a little time for the little packages and a lot of time for the big ones. Much more time than a simple downloaded binary package on apt and rpm based systems.

This is a good thing. The benefits are customization of every package on the system, less cruft, and a system optimized from top to bottom.



It also results in the problem highlighted above. I recently upgraded my system to the latest profile and emerge -u world. Apparently some of the packages like digikam either haven't been upgraded recently or a package that was depended on by digikam was upgraded more recently.

Either way the way to fix the highlighted problem is to emerge digikam again. That way it will point to the newer libraries it depends on. And probably break anything that depends on digikam's libraries in the process. But that in a nut shell is Gentoo.



Hmm? What's this nfs USE flag that is disabled?



euse -i nfs shows the flag effects a bunch of packages. I'm going to enable it globally because I use nfs automount for file sharing between my Kubuntu, Gentoo, and OS X boxes. The more nfs support the better.



Now I can get back to uploading my albums. :)

The Brass Man by Neal Asher

Another book in the Polity series by Neal Asher. Done as a tip of the iceberg story about a Pandora's box of nanotechnology potentially created by an unknown ancient race to destroy any form of life uncautious enough to use it.I found the author's blog, The Skinner , through the author's Wikipedia entry, Neal Asher. I also found some more of his books that I haven't read and didn't know about. As well as two free online stories by Neal Asher and one by another cyberpunk author, David Marusek, at Free Speculative Fiction Online: Links to Science Fiction & Fantasy Stories Online Website.
