Safe Mode: On

William B Stoecker

There is nothing in relativity or quantum mechanics that allows for gravity control, or "anti gravity," but such technology, if it exists, could explain the flight characteristics of ufos, and, possibly, the ability of the ancients to quarry, transport, lift, and emplace stones weighing many hundreds of thousands of pounds. And there is a great deal of evidence, albeit controversial, that modern inventors have achieved gravity control, and, furthermore, that gravity control and so-called "free" energy are different sides of the same coin.

The ancient Greeks and others, contrary to popular opinion, knew perfectly well that the world was round, and even measured its diameter with fair accuracy. Yet, until the time of Newton, no one seems to have given much thought to what holds us onto the Earth. After he published his laws of gravity and motion, the stage was set for further developments. Early science fiction writers like HG Wells fantasized about anti gravity, and, beginning early in the twentieth a number of inventors, too "ignorant" to know that it was "impossible," began attempting to invent gravity control systems. Guided by intuition and trial and error, they reasoned that since gravity was an attractive force and electromagnetism was an attractive (and repulsive) force there might be a connection. Over time, there were two main approaches.

In recent decades a number of inventors, mainly Podkletnov in Finland, have experimented with spinning electromagnets and claim to have measurably reduced the weight of objects placed above their apparatus, though they have not achieved actual levitation.

Beginning as far back as the nineteen twenties, in the US, Dr. Paul Alfred Biefeld and the self educated inventor Townsend Brown began developing something that has been called the "Biefeld-Brown Effect," or, more commonly, "electrogravitics." By the nineteen fifties Brown had carried on the work and developed true levitation. Basically, he used a well known electrical device called a capacitor. A capacitor stores electrical energy, normally at rather high voltages, for short periods. It consists of two metal plates separated by a dielectric, or insulator, which may be a vacuum, or air, or some solid substance like mica. One plate is given a negative charge, and the other a positive charge, and the charges attract one another and hold one another in place until they leak across the dielectric or into the surrounding air. In theory, a capacitor could hold a charge forever (and this becomes important when we discuss free energy), but, in practice, the leakage is usually very fast. Brown discovered that a capacitor, for unknown reasons, produced a slight propulsive force in the direction of the positive plate, pushing the entire apparatus in that direction. He found, by trial and error, that certain shapes worked better than others.

In one version, the electrogravitic device is shaped rather like an umbrella. The large, hemispherical portion is charged positive, the "umbrella stick" is the dielectric, and, at its base, is the negative "plate," normally shaped as a sphere. He was able to make these levitate, and interested the US Air Force in a contract. No one knows what, if anything, came of this, and there are many who believe that the US government has secretly carried on the work and developed actual gravity control spacecraft. There is even a rumor that some B-2 bombers are actually propelled by electrogravitics.

In the other version, the positive plate is a wire or thin rod, and the negative plate is actually shaped like a metal plate, a flat, rectangular piece of metal mounted edge on to the wire, with air or some other dielectric between them. These, too, have levitated, and, so simple is their design, that any number of people have built and flown them. Among them are Tim Ventera, Jean-Louis Naudin, and others, and organizations like the Gravity Research Group and Aviation Studies. Thomas Valone and Paul La Violette have written extensively about this research.

From the start there has been a controversy. Does electrogravitics really produce an unknown propulsive force, presumably some sort of gravity control, that could be used in the vacuum of space? Or is it merely a kind of jet propulsion, pushed by a ion wind that blows downward and pushes the device up? Blazelabs claims to have tested it in a partial vacuum chamber and seen the force drop off to zero, allegedly proving that it is only ion wind.Other writers claim that it has in fact worked even in a vacuum.

One man who has tested the wire and plate version is Jess Fritch. Like most of the other researchers, he has arranged three of these in a triangle, and I have personally seen the device levitate on at least three occasions. Once, I felt for the ion wind, and could detect only the faintest breeze, certainly not enough to blow the device sideways, let alone lift it straight up.

Admittedly, this is not a precise scientific experiment, but we are all familiar all of our lives with the wind and have a rough idea how much wind is needed to lift things. At the very least, this technology is worthy of more funding and study by someone other than the government.

Then there is the "free" energy angle. Since a capacitor, in theory, can hold a charge forever, this implies that the energy used to charge up the device is not what lifts it, but, rather, merely allows the electrogravitics lifter to tap into some other, unknown energy source that surrounds us everywhere and might be tapped for many purposes, perhaps at very low cost. For example, if several of the flat wire and plate lifters were mounted around an axle and all aligned to push it in one direction, say clockwise, this could turn a generator and produce electric current. Once the plates were charged up to start with, a small part of the electricity from the generator could be used to replace the charge that leaks away, and the rest of it would be usable energy. High tech dielectrics like barium titanium oxide might allow higher voltages and greater thrust and reduce leakage.

Such technology could literally empower the people, vastly improving the economy, ending our dependence on foreign oil, and making individuals and small communities and companies more independent. If gravity control fliers replaced automobiles, people would also become more mobile. Clearly, this is not something our government elite can tolerate, which is all the more reason to develop the technology.

"Advanced Technology has been developed and is still in the works, but of course this technology is only reserved for the elite and secret organizations"
