researcher who thought he had successfully tapped into the holy grail of
aetheric energy now thinks the source of the energy he is deriving is most
likely being picked up radiantly from local high-power lines.
A month ago, Craig West* successfully built for
himself a device that outputs four kilowatts with much less than that required
for excitation of the device. The device even continued output with the
excitation source removed in a closed loop. Though to outward appearances,
the device seemed "self-powered," West knew that the energy had to be
coming from somewhere.
His hope, of course, was that he had been able to tap into "the vast sea of
energy that surrounds us," spoken of by inventors such as Nikola Tesla and
T. Henry Moray. He was on the high of his life.
He is quick to mention that the design is not his. He learned it from a
gentleman in Arizona, who demonstrated to him a one million Watt output before
the wires in the coil disintegrated.
With his success, West had investors with 30 million dollars lined up; 10
million up front for a demo, and the remaining 20 million to tell them how it
The device worked fine, with repeatable results when he operated it in Arizona
where he built it. But when he returned to his remote home in California
that is operated by solar energy, far away from civilization, let alone any
power lines, the device no longer output more than what went in. Nothing
but the location of the device had changed.
The location in Arizona where he built the device is in the vicinity of high
power lines, which traipse the landscape throughout Arizona. West also
said that he saw a report on the web about Arizona installing new super
conducting, under-ground, high-power lines that convey power from Arizona to
An Electrical Engineer who was in on the interview with West, mentioned that it
is known that if a barbed wire fence, of about a mile in length, with
insulators, is run parallel to a high power line that a "one-turn
transformer" can be created, inductively coupling some of the power of the
Then, as this story was being composed, a story broke in the UK in which an Artist-Physicist,
Richard Box, lit 1300 fluorescent lights from " 'spare' electricity just
floating around in the air around the electric pylons which dot our
countryside." (Evening Post, UK, Feb. 19, 2004)

West thinks that the device he built, patterned after that of his associate
in Arizona, is somehow serving as a wireless transformer. "Other
technologies may in fact be tapping into aetheric energy, but at this point it
looks as though this particular family of designs does not." An
obvious example would be the radiant energy experiments done by Nikola Tesla, in
which no high-power lines were present.
While this pops his bubble of thinking he had learned to tap aetheric energy, he
nevertheless realizes that there are a wide range of practical applications that
the power companies would find of great use.
Running electricity to a home remote from the grid is prohibitively
expensive. Every few hundred feet can cost thousands of dollars.
This device would enable homes that are within a few miles of high power lines
to be able to wirelessly tap into those lines.
The exact efficiencies over a given distance are not yet characterized.
West is not yet even certain that this is indeed what is happening with his
device. He plans to pursue a series of experiments to document and
characterize this phenomenon. When the weather clears, and he can get
enough money for a tank of gas, he will be making his way to the vicinity of a
high power line to see how his device performs. He will then measure the
effect at different distances from the line, as well as nearby a transformer
Another alternative energy researcher, Larry Rand, citing the work of Dr. Tom
Bearden and John Bedini, urges
West to not be so hasty to presume that the high-power line effect is due to his
device tapping into the electricity being transmitted by those lines.
"Perhaps in this case the power company lines and the device form somewhat
of a resonant condition that allows some of the same 'power' from the universe
that goes into the power company lines, to enter the device."
"According to conventional physics, there should be little power collected
from the power company's transmission lines, unless huge coils are used, in
fairly close proximity," says Rand.
Rand even goes so far as to suggest that what is actually happening is that the
power grid's method of generating electricity absorbs the lines of aetheric
energy away from areas where they would otherwise flow, thus inadvertently
robbing everyone in the power line vicinity from equal access to this free
energy source from the universe.
Taking this a step further, Electrical Engineer, Ken
Rauen, points out that "aetheric energy flow that is redirected means
natural energy flows are disrupted." He then asks, "what are the
full ramifications on the environment and biological health?"
D. Perez Torres of Advanced Research Knowledge asserts that "power
company lines act as a sink for natural-occurring RF radiant energy waves in low
to very low frequencies (LF/VLF) from 10 kHz to 535 kHz."
He said the Power distribution entities know of some interactions between
naturally occurring VLF frequencies emitted from the earth, and that
"they invert lines at intervals and place filters and suppressors in
line" to counteract these effects. "Utility companies expend
millions in filtering geodesic 'noise' that affects their systems, like in solar
If it is actually a case of tapping into the electricity in the transmission
lines, and not aetheric energy being amplified by the lines, what West is most
concerned about is that people will make these devices with the specific intent
of stealing power from the grid, similar to unscrupulous pirating devices in the
wireless world of entertainment.
"They are not that difficult to build. It took me 30 minutes to
figure it out."
In the same breath, he hopes that the power community will not just run off with
his technology for its use as a wireless transformer, and leave him out of the
loop. They could benefit tremendously from his knowledge in coming up with
ways to detect such devices from a signature frequency output, to be able to
intercept individuals tapping power without proper authorization to do so.
Torres postulates that "if we use this power we do not steal power from
them but help them suppress the ELF signal improving their transmission."
While it may not turn out to be the holy grail of free energy, it could be a
great tool in energy distribution, and could even have applications in
wirelessly powering appliances.
West is not alone in having created such a device. There are dozens, if
not hundreds of individuals around the planet who have built similar devices
that operate on the same basic principles. The pioneers in this field are
Lester Hendershot, inventor of the "Power Capture Unit" (1920's); and
the late Floyd "Sparky" Sweet, inventor of the Vacuum Triode Amplifier
(VTA) or Space Quantum Modulator (1986).
Dr. Tom Bearden, a pillar in the free energy community, when describing the
phenomenon of aetheric energy being all around us, uses the analogy of birds
sitting on top of high-voltage lines, completely unaffected and oblivious to the
power running under them. West is now suggesting that at least some of
Bearden's devices may be doing just that -- tapping remotely into the power of
the high-voltage lines.
Tom Cullen, Director of Education at Pure Energy Systems, said "Bearden and
Moray have taken great measures to understand the true source of energy in their
According to Marc Wiseman, Director of Information Technology at Pure Energy
Systems, West is not the first to postulated that the extra electricity in these
particular designs may actually be derived from the power grid -- the very
source that the others in this field are hoping to replace. "The
ability of power lines to act as a coupling device for some distance away is not
a new idea."
Wiseman, cites the work of K. Meyl of
Germany, who postulates mathematical models to show that scalar energy and
transverse energy can have an interplay between each other. Based on this
model, Wiseman extrapolates the idea that the scalar energy surrounding
high-power lines could flip over into transverse energy whereby it could be
conveyed over long distances away from the lines.
"Very little is known about Extremely Low Frequencies" such as the 60
Hz range of the power lines, because the wavelengths are so large. One
wavelength is approximately the width of the United States.
The irony of this belated realization is that one of the prophets of free
energy, Nikola Tesla, is revered for his invention of radiant energy technology
whereby electricity can be conveyed to remote locations without the use of
"What we seem to have here is a bunch of people who are unwittingly
misleading people with the promise of free energy using these devices, when the
very source of their energy may be the power grid," says West. Even
with Rand's alternative explanation, the aether-focusing properties of the grid
are a determining component to the function of this design.
West referred to an inventor in Bullhead City, Earl Davenport, who has a set-up
very similar to his, and speculated that his "over unity," as
purportedly confirmed by Walter Rosenthal, is a function of high-power lines
nearby. Across the River, not ten miles away, in Laughlin Nevada, is a
large power plant, with high power lines extending from it in all directions.
Newman's motor is another possible variation of this wireless transformer
phenomenon, according to West. It has a super long wire, with decent
capacitance. "Some people build it and claim it works well, others
build it and it doesn't work so well. It just may be the story of
'location, location, location."
"John Bedini's motor is an even more likely candidate for this
phenomenon," says West.
The high-power-line model is not the only possible explanation given by
West. He gives at least six other possible causes of the variations in
results, such as naturally occurring ley lines that occur at certain distances
across the earth. A possible imminent pole shift of the earth's magnetic
field could also be introducing sporadic field parameters. Oil pumping at
high velocity under ground has been shown to create electromagnetic fields as
well. West also includes in his list the possibility of occult magic at
work in which the practitioners are able to create an illusion that defies
Whatever the cause, he has seen variations in the performance of his device that
go beyond the variables of the device itself, and he is determined to discover
what those outside parameters are.
Steve Elswick of Tesla Tech and editor of ExtraOrdinary
Technology magazine, has been selling plans to this technology in a
variation called the Kipper motor. West encourages Elswick to notify his
buyers of this effect if it is shown to indeed be a result of this
In a three-way interview with West, Elswick confirmed that he was also witness
to the over unity effect demonstrated by Kipper. Elswick also points out
that there is not a place in the U.S. that does not have background RF from
high-power lines. Based on what he knows of the device and its various
manifestations, Elswick does not think this device functions because a wireless
As a micro version of this phenomenon of high-power wire-less transmission, West
envisions a scenario in which a con man sets up a microwave oven in one room
with its door open as a transmitter, and a "receiver" device is set up
in the adjoining room, apparently operating as an "over unity device."
West prefers to not divulge the full set of details about how the device works,
lest people begin to make the device in order to steal power.
His device, built of off-the-shelf components, consists of
- a deep cycle 12-volt battery
- a simple 6 - 90 Volt DC motor from a treadmill
- an alternator that has been modified, replacing either the rotor or stator
windings with permanent Neodymium magnets
- a bridge with 600-Volt, 35-Amp diode to rectify the alternator output to DC
- a coil (this is the trick) wound with 12-guage insulated wire
"The gauge of the wire is what determines the power level attainable.
The thicker the wire, the more the power."
Regarding the coil, he said, "There is probably not a coil you could name
that I am not aware of, but this coil is something I had never seen
"If the switch is placed after the coil, you can turn it off, but the
device keeps going. There is no visible arc across the switch gap of one
inch, yet the current is still running. But if you place the switch before
the alternator, it successfully shuts the device down."
"Once the device is running, you can pull the battery out, and loop it back
to itself, and it keeps running."
The battery is what West speculates is a key factor in the equation of enabling
the proper LCR (inductance, capacitance, resistance) combination to obtain a
frequency that enables the device to remotely tap into high-power-lines.
"A battery is a huge capacitor -- of the Farad range," says West.
"The resonance does not have to be exactly 60 cycles. It can be a
close multiple. The closer the resonance, the greater will be the
The wavelength of 60 Hz is over three thousand miles long; but the half, and
quarter, and eighth and smaller harmonic fractions of that wavelength also
provide a corresponding resonance.
The high-power transmission lines from Arizona to California carry in the range
of 500,000 volts, though 200,000 to 400,000 is more typical of high-power lines.
It is not likely that the Utilities have missed a few volts here and there due
to these rogue scientists who think they are pulling the power out of thin air,
or the aether that surrounds us. If West's discovery is proven out, the
ramifications will be disappointing to the Free Energy enthusiasts, but will
also lend them some credence for ingenuity which can be put to use in wireless
transformer applications. Not all of their devices are driven by this
phenomenon. Perhaps science will begin paying closer attention to them --
if anything to guard their power. The scrutiny could do both sides some
good. At a minimum, any free energy claim must be proven to be independent
of the existing power grid.
If the effect is due to the high-power transmission lines amplifying aetheric
energy, as Rand suggests, cooperation with the power companies will be required
to scientifically prove this point. Voicing a sentiment often found in the
free energy community who see themselves as being at odds with those who meter
and charge for power, Elswick said such an attempt at corroboration "would
be a death wish."
Torres points out that an argument could be made that "if a power company
is radiating energy of this magnitude they may be violating current FCC
law." He also cites the growing body of evidence showing deleterious
health consequences found in those who live nearby high-power lines -- a class
action suit waiting to happen.
If the effect is a result of the high-power lines redirecting the natural flow
of aetheric energy to everyone equally, that presents yet another controversy
sure to generate some heat of its own. Calvin Young, an Avionics Engineer,
formerly with Boeing, goes so far as to say that the power grid is actually
damaging the earth by disrupting the natural flow of aetheric energy.
Torres summarizes, "The main issue is that the power company has nothing to
do with a phenomena that existed prior to them. Damming the water
does not give them ownership over the rain."
While the grid may have its side effects, the benefits it has brought to mankind
are everywhere around us.
This discovery of a probable link between this family of radiant energy devices
and their vicinity to high-power transmission lines is likely to open a new
chapter in the book of free energy. Its reverberations will be felt for
decades to come. It might be raining on the parade, but of such rain comes

To summarize; our telecom, power lines, as you know, are known to produce low
frequency fields whose effects on living creatures is not fully understood.
The behavior, transmission and reception, of ELF (extremely low frequency) is
not well understood either. It has been known that power lines can induce
current in nearby devices. Power lines have been observed to also affect
lightening. What has not been known is the radiant nature of the ELF from the
power lines. Perhaps this latest story will draw attention and accelerate
development of ELF technology. Great efforts have been made in attempting to
use ELF for submarine communications, perhaps now we have clues for devising
technology better than HARP with less impact on the environment. The work of
Dr. K. Meyl of Germany comes to mind as one who worked out the mathematical
relationships between scalar and transverse propagation. My thought is that
the ELF, unlike frequencies we normally associate with radio phenomena, may
involve such transformations, but in a manner different than what we are
accustomed with radio phenomena.
