TESLA: The Race to Zero Point Free Energy

Looking for something awesome to watch tonight?  Laura and I are going to watch the documentary Sirius again in the next few days, but this next submission is on the list right after.


For all of you out there that believe like me that we can have free energy in our lifetimes — check this out!  This movie is called TESLA: The Race to Zero Point Free Energy, and it’s fantastic.  Produced in 1997, get ready for some of the science-fiction-est transitions and video effects that 1997 had to offer, but the content of this film is of immense importance.

Cue this up for later tonight, make sure you’ve given YouTube enough time to buffer through the movie, grab the popcorn and settle in for some awesome documentary action.

Directed by Chris Toussaint

Hosted by Bill Jenkins, formerly of ABC Radio, this comprehensive documentary features physicists and inventors who are challenging orthodox science to bring this non-polluting technology forward despite ridicule and suppression. See actual working prototypes that defy classical physics including phenomenal experiments in anti-gravity and the transmutation of metals.…


Editor’s Note:
You’d be surprised how many times I get an email or a Facebook message about posting information relating to the idea of free energy here on  Most of them are friendly stabs and jabs about how nothing of this sort could ever work, how it defies the fundamental laws of thermodynamics, and that I should be ashamed of myself for promoting this kind of fantasy.  I have only one thing to say to all of the naysayers of free energy, the zero point field, perpetual motion, and electrogravitics in general:  In our world today, where income disparity is at its absolute most disgusting and the banking cartels control now even the price of aluminum cans, would it be such a bad thing if people paid attention to making their own free power instead of wasting their lives watching brain destroying trash like Honey Boo Boo and reruns of Jersey Shore, among other unbelievably high rated and worthless fodder?  

I don’t think so either.  We have to take back our world, and do it now.



Who is THAT?!  Wait, is that — is that Nikola Tesla?!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Nikola Tesla!



Well, it’s birthday time for one of the most prolific inventory of humanity — Nikola Tesla’s 207th birthday is today (10 July 1856 — 7 January 1943)!  If he was still alive, I would definitely suggest we have a Tweet-up and buy that man a round!  A man who thought all human beings should have free energy, believed in the power of peace, and created more useful inventions than most people alive today — Nikola Tesla is one historical badass.  He also got legally fornicated by Thomas Edison, which is another post altogether, but still managed to do unbelievable work on alternating current electricity.

Big Ups to The Oatmeal for Mad Props to Nikola Tesla

In case you aren’t an avid follower of The Oatmeal (@oatmeal), you should be. If today’s posted comic about Nikola Tesla doesn’t say enough about why you should follow along, then you are probably a web crawler and are just going to catalog this with no emotional understanding. Oh well, your loss web crawler – especially since you wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for Tesla.

Now, for everybody else who gets it – get this:

Edison VS. Tesla: The WAR of CURRENTS!

Have you seen this awesome image?  Here’s a 650px version of it – very informative and pretty great!

Here’s a link to the original size, which is MUCH more awesome than this wee one.  A huge thanks to long time reader and Duluth Crew member Alex Rugowski for this one!

Nikola Tesla, A Genius Who Got Screwed By Edison

Awesome dude and entertainment lighting publicist Michael Eddy sent this video a few weeks ago about Nikola Tesla – and funny enough, I’m reading a biography of Edison right now, so I love the conflicting history!  You have to take the three minutes and watch this video – you’ll learn about Tesla today, and how awesome he was.  You need to learn something new every day!

Laser Spark Plugs?


American automobile company Ford and the University of Liverpool are about to breathe some new life into Nikola Tesla’s spark plug, which was invented in 1898.  The plan is to use lasers to replace the spark plug technology, which has been rockin’ like Dokken since way before my parents were born.  The laser mechanism will apparently improve ignition conditions when the vehicle is started in the cold, or in damp conditions.  From the article at the Telegraph:

“Lasers can be focused and split into multiple beams to give multiple ignition points, which means it can give a far better chance of ignition.

“This can really improve the performance of the engine when it is cold, as this is the time when around 80 per cent of the exhaust emissions are produced and the engine is at is least efficient.

“The laser also produces more stable combustion so you need to put less fuel into the cylinder.”

In current engines spark plugs are positioned at the top or bottom of a cylinder and they can often fail to ignite fuel effectively if the petrol is not in the right position in the cylinder.

In the new system the spark plug is replaced by a laser powered by the car battery which is sent along thin optical fibres into the engine’s cylinders where lenses focus the beam into an intense pinprick of light.

When fuel is injected into the engine, the laser is fired, producing enough heat to ignite the fuel and power the engine.

The researchers claim that the laser, which will need to fire more than 50 times per second to produce 3000 RPM, will require less power than traditional spark plugs.

Some of the laser can be reflected back from inside the cylinder to provide information for the car on the type of fuel being used and the level of ignition, allowing the car to adjust the quantities of air and fuel automatically to optimise the performance.

This raises the prospect of mixed fuel cars which can run on a number of different biofuels while ensuring they still run efficiently.

A spokesman for Ford said: “Ford, like all vehicle manufacturers, is obliged by European legislation to reduce emissions and our work in this area is led by Ford’s UK R&D centre in Essex.

I didn’t expect to read that today! That’s a pretty interesting innovation – you have to ask yourself what other ideas like this we’ll find the laser participating in to make better.
