One of the strangest books ever written about modern physics was published in 2002, and reprinted two years later. Titled Energy from the Vacuum (Cheniere Press), this monstrosity is two inches thick and weighs three pounds. Its title page lists the author as “Lt. Col. Thomas E. Bearden, PhD (U.S. Army retired).”
“Dr.” Bearden is fond of putting PhD after his name. An Internet check revealed that his doctorate was given, in his own words, for “life experience and life accomplishment.” It was purchased from a diploma mill called Trinity College and University—a British institution with no building, campus, faculty, or president, and run from a post office box in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The institution’s owner, one Albert Wainwright, calls himself the college “registrant.”
Bearden’s central message is clear and simple. He is persuaded that it is possible to extract unlimited free energy from the vacuum of space-time. Indeed, he believes the world is on the brink of its greatest technological revolution. Forget about nuclear reactors. Vacuum energy will rescue us from global warming, eliminate poverty, and provide boundless clean energy for humanity’s glorious future. All that is needed now is for the scientific community to abandon its “ostrich position” and allow adequate funding to Bearden and his associates.
To almost all physicists this quest for what is called “zero-point energy” (ZPE) is as hopeless as past efforts to build perpetual motion machines. Such skepticism drives Bearden up a wall. Only monumental ignorance, he writes, could prompt such criticism.
The nation’s number two drumbeater for ZPE is none other than Harold Puthoff, who runs a think tank in Austin, Texas, where efforts to tap ZPE have been underway for years. In December 1997, to its shame, Scientific American ran an article praising Puthoff for his efforts. Nowhere did this article mention his dreary past.
Puthoff began his career as a dedicated Scientologist. He had been de¬clared a “clear”—a person free of malicious “engrams” recorded on his brain while he was an embryo. At Stanford Research International, Puthoff and his then-friend Russell Targ claimed to have validated “remote viewing” (a new name for distant clairvoyance), and also the great psi powers of Uri Geller. (See my chapter on Puthoff’s search for ZPE in Did Adam and Eve Have Navels?, Norton 2000.)
Bearden sprinkles his massive volume with admirable quotations from top physicists, past and present, occasionally correcting mistakes made by Einstein and others. For example, Bearden be¬lieves that the graviton moves much faster than the speed of light. He praises the work of almost every counterculture physicist of recent decades. He admires David Bohm’s “quantum potential” and Mendel Sach’s unified field theory. Oliver Heaviside and Nikola Tesla are two of his heroes.
Bearden devotes several chapters to antigravity machines. Here is a sample of his views:
In our approach to antigravity, one way to approach the problem is to have the mechanical apparatus also the source of an intense negative energy EM field, producing an intense flux of Dirac sea holes into and in the local surrounding space-time. The excess charge removed from the Dirac holes can in fact be used in the electrical powering of the physical system, as was demonstrated in the Sweet VTA antigravity test. Then movements of the mechanical parts could involve movement of strong negative energy fields, hence strong curves of local space-time that are local strong negative gravity fields. Or, better yet, movement of the charges themselves will also produce field-induced movement of the Dirac sea hole negative energy. This appears to be a practical method to manipulate the metric itself, along the lines proposed by Puthoff et al. 
The 217 superscript refers to a footnote about a 2002 paper by Puthoff and two friends on how to use the vacuum field to power spacecraft. Bearden’s anti-gravity pro¬pulsion system is neatly diagrammed on page 319. “Negatively charged local space-time,” says the diagram, “acts back upon source vehicle producing anti-gravity and unilateral thrust.”
In the 1950s, numerous distinguished writers, artists, and even philosophers (e.g., Paul Goodman, William Steig, and Paul Edwards) sat nude in Wilhelm Reich’s “orgone accumulators” to absorb the healing rays of “orgone energy” coming from outer space. Bearden suspects (in footnote 78) that orgone energy “is really the transduction of the time-polarized photon energy into normal photon energy. We are assured by quantum field theory and the great negentropy solution to the source charge problem that the instantaneous scalar potential in¬volves this process.” I doubt if the Reichians, who are still around, will find this illuminating.
To my amazement Bearden has good things to say about the notorious “Dean drive”—a rotary motion device designed to propel spaceships by inertia. It was promoted by John Campbell when he edited Astounding Science Fiction, a magazine that unleashed L. Ron Hubbard’s Dianetics on a gullible public and made Hubbard a millionaire. Only elementary physics is needed to show that no inertial drive can move a spaceship in frictionless space. On pages 448—453 Bearden lists eighty patents for inertial drives. They have one feature in common: none of them works.
Counterculture scientists tend to be bitter over the “establishment’s” inability to recognize their genius. Was not Galileo, they like to repeat, persecuted for his great discoveries? This bitterness is sometimes accompanied by paranoid fears, not just of conspiracies to silence them, but also fears of being murdered. Bearden’s pages 406—453 are devoted to just such delusions.
Several kinds of “shooters” are described that induce fatal heart attacks. He himself, Bearden writes, has been hit by such devices. An associate, Stan Meyer, died after a “possible” hit by a close-range shooter. Another ZPE researcher was killed by a bazooka-size shooter. Steve Marikov, still another researcher, was assaulted by a sophisticated shooter and his body thrown off a rooftop to make it appear a suicide. When his body was removed, the pavement “glowed.”
One day at a Texas airport a person three feet from Bearden was killed with symptoms suggesting he was murdered by an ice-dart dipped in curare! “That was apparently just to teach me ‘they’ were serious.” The colonel goes on to explain that “they” refers to a “High Cabal” who were offended by a friend’s “successful transmutation of copper (and other things) into gold. . . . We have had numerous other assassination attempts, too numerous to reiterate. . . . Over the years probably as many as fifty or more overunity researchers and inventors have been assassinated . . . some have simply disappeared abruptly and never have been heard from since.” Overunity is Bearden’s term for machines with energy outputs that exceed energy inputs.
Any significant researcher should be wary of “meeting with a sudden suicide” on the way to the supermarket. Another thing to beware of, is a calibrated auto accident where your car is rammed from the rear, and you are shaken up considerably. An ambulance just happens to be passing by moments later, and it will take you to the hospital. If still conscious, the researcher must not get in the ambulance unless accompanied by a watchful friend who understands the situation and the danger. Otherwise, he can easily get a syringe of air into his veins, which will effectively turn him into a human vegetable. If he goes to the hospital safely, he must be guarded by friends day and night, for the same reason, else he runs a high risk of the “air syringe” assassination during the night.
Simply trying to do scientific work, I find it necessary to often carry (legally) a hidden weapon. Both my wife and I have gun permits, and we frequently and legally carry concealed weapons.
As early as the 1930s, T. Henry Moray—who built a successful COp<1.0 power system outputting 50kW from a 55 lb power unit—had to ride in a bulletproof car in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was repeatedly fired at by snipers from the buildings or sidewalk, with the bullets sometimes sticking in the glass. He was also shot by a would-be assassin in his own laboratory, but overpowered his assassin and recovered.
Obviously, I’m not competent to wade through Bearden’s almost a thousand pages to point out what physicists tell me are howlers. I leave that task to experts, though I suspect very few will consider it worth their time even to read the book. To me, a mere science journalist, the book’s dense, pompous jargon sounds like hilarious technical double-talk. The book’s annotated glossary runs to more than 120 pages. There are 305 footnotes, 754 endnotes, and a valuable seventy-three-page index.
The back cover calls the book “the definitive energy book of the twenty-first century.” In my opinion it is destined to be the greatest work of outlandish science in both this and the previous century. It is much funnier, for instance, than Frank Tipler’s best-seller of a few decades ago, The Physics of Immortality.
We talked about the usual stuff, eventually getting to high gas prices. He then started explaining to me how there are already people who know how to create energy and they're being suppressed.
He mentioned he picked up a DVD online that explained Bedini's free energy machine. He said "obviously I can't say 100% that they're right, but all the people talking on the DVD said they've seen it first hand, and no scientists have been able to explain where the energy is coming from.
This was the first time I had heard about this particular machine, but I suspected it may be getting hyped mostly by a conspiracy crowd, since the later part of the conversation turned into oil companies having people assassinated for threatening their business with free energy devices.
So that's the long and the short of it. If someone who's good with this stuff wants to give me a reader's digest version of how it's said to work and what's known about it, that'd be great. I suspected it sounded fishy, but without having any background I didn't have much to say.
John Bedini is one of the few “living legends” in the free energy field. He grew up in southern California and joined the Army after High School. The military immediately recognised John’s advanced aptitude for electronics, and trained him extensively. After finishing his tour of duty, he settled back in the Los Angeles area and worked for some of the big names in stereophonic equipment. Within a few years, he was designing equipment that was more advanced than his employers. Of course, he was rewarded by being fired!
Shortly thereafter, he formed Bedini Electronics with his brother Gary, and never looked back. Bedini Audio Amplifiers built in the 1970’s, 1980’s and 1990’s still sell on EBay for more than they did when new. His development of the BASE (Bedini Audio-Spacial Environments) holographic 3-D sound processing remains the pinacle of audio sound processing.
But John’s interests go way beyond audio. During the 1970’s, he also received training as a machine tool operator. Ultimately, he became proficient in the use of the Lathe, Vertical Mill, shear, brake and various welding techniques. Currently, his shop has all of these tools and is capable of fabricating nearly anything from one-of-a-kind circuit boards to experimental automobiles. Every once in a while, he’ll throw together a micro-watt FM transmitter, just for fun!
With all of these skills and equipment, John has been one of the World’s premeire Free Energy experimenters in the last 40 years. He has a “museum” of working prototype devices that includes multiple “self-running” machines. With a deep understanding of the political and financial resistance to these technologies, most of John’s devices remain “table-top demonstrators.”
His main interest has been in electric motor and generator combinations, as well as “regenerative” electric motors that produce mechanical energy while charging batteries at the same time. The US Patents linked below show two such designs, as well as other methods for charging batteries. (You can find all of John’s current line of “state-of-the-art” battery chargers at: TESLA CHARGERS.)
In 2003, John started releasing information to the public about one of his regenerative motor designs that a 10 year-old school girl had won a science fair with in his home town of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. An article, written by Jeane Manning, even appeared in Atlantis Rising magazine about this story. At first, other experimenters on the internet discussion groups thought it would never work. John’s famous reply was “if a little school girl can built one and win….” why can’t you?
The association between the “school girl” and John’s patented design stuck, and the project rapidly became known as the “Bedini SG”. Now, after 10 years and thousands of replications all over the world, the “Bedini SG” is the most famous and best documented Free Energy device currently available.
Recently, I have had the privilege of co-authoring a series of manuals that teach this science from the ground up, to people just learning about it. The first book is titled BEDINI SG, The Complete Beginner’s Handbook. It gives the complete directions on how to build a working model of this amazing machine, based on John’s exact designs. Besides that, it also includes a detailed description of the circuit functions and the theory behind its operation.
The second book is titled BEDINI SG, The Complete Intermediate Handbook. This book picks up the instructions where the first book leaves off. It covers circuit optimizing, the effects of discharging capacitors into batteries, and more advanced theory, including the design’s relationship to earlier work done by Nikola Tesla in the 1890’s.
The third book is titled BEDINI SG, The Complete Advanced Handbook. This book delves deep into the origins and history of John’s Self-running Machines, explaining in full detail how the Low-Drag Generator really works and how you can build one yourself.
The complete Trilogy is now available, so you can learn everything there is to know about this REAL, self-running, electro-mechanical machine, and even build one for yourself.

URGENT! WATER AS FUEL DISCOVERY FOR EVERYONE TO SHARE
If this is the first time you are viewing this page I ask you to share this link immediately to everyone you have in your email address list and ask them to do the same no matter what you or they may think. We need to give this back to the World a.s.a.p.
Next I ask everyone to stop experimenting if you can and help with this, since I believe it is the one of the most promising real effect at this time (that I know of) that is fully shared on the Internet. Nothing will be hidden here. You can view the development of everything that is going on.
Now let me give you some background on this. For a couple of years now I was a member of a Yahoo Group called: WaterFuel1978.
At this group user name: s1r9a9m9 claims to have one of his cars working on water and says that one of the parts he uses to do this is an inverter and also some relays. However, no one to date have been able to replicate it and the site dates back since, Jul 30, 2005. On or around June 25th, 2008 s1r9a9m9 posted 2 videos on youtube to show a 18HP one cylinder engine running on water. The video is quite convincing, however he is hiding the important parts to make this work.
After seeing the videos I posted this message to s1r9a9m9 at the WaterFuel1978 Group:
Dear S1R, thank you for the 2 videos which now would make it very hard to say it does not work.
However it is a sad day to think of the years that passed by and our World is getting wasted by these greedy fossil fuel controllers and
to think that all this time you have been a chosen one to put the pieces together that could change all that... and what do you do with it, hide it, just as they do.
All gift of knowledge comes from one place and it is testing man to see what he does with it. All that is good to help keep balance is
meant to be shared with all...just as the structure of the Universe keeps balance and is giving. When one stops the flow that would be
good for Billions of others I would think of that as a great sin and your life could be in much greater danger than you think. All who have tried to control their inventions that could of made our World a better place have lost their life over it or have been bought out just to hide the information. I'm sure Stanley Meyer would do it differently if he had a second chance but it's too late when your dead and the knowledge is lost.
Hiding things will not protect you, sharing will...since you will be welcomed in all the homes of America and the World as a Hero. Now
that is protection if you think you need it. By hiding things you are doing exactly as they want and that makes a small target for them since it is not spread out and can be easily extinguished, 99.99% of the World won't even know it has happen.
You chose your destiny. But I am here to help you in every way I humanly can and I think many others who are here are ready to do the
same. I hope this time we can do it all together, united we stand, divided we
I have hope.
I have believed for many years that water could be used as a fuel.
The next day I posted the message to s1r9a9m9 I started a replication attempts of his system and while working on it I accidentally shorted the DC side of the bridge rectifier and saw a flame spark which made me think of plasma. So I tried many different circuit possibilities to try and incorporate this short circuit effect when the high voltage spark jumped the gap. After 2 days of work I came up with a very simple circuit which is posted at the bottom of this page. I had to work hard to make the circuit so simple since our minds think something like this should be complicated, so don't come to the conclusion that something so simple will not work until you try it. At the botton is my original circuit but I updated the diode part number and the quantity thanks to user name: callanan's added his improvement ideas. His circuit is more complex than mine and could work for you if you are advanced enough in electronics but one way or the other I would recommend (if you want to replicate) that you start with the simple circuit first and after seeing the effect you can add the extra components if you wish. Please note that I believe both circuits give the same effect.
Also, please note that most Spark plug have a resistance in them which needs to be removed. In many models of Spark Plugs you can remove the resistor by heating up the ceramic around the top electrode to unlock the seal and then unscrew it and remove the resistor and spring and replace it with a piece of 10 gauge copper wire or 3 pieces of 14 gauge regular home copper wiring to complete the contact. Make sure the wire you added touches the top electrode just before it sets when you are screwing it back in. Here is a Video Demo of a resistor being removed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-J2AHNZUZD0 The gap of the plug can be standard but you could play with it after a successful replication and see what it does. We will be testing all these things and updating this page with the most current information, so keep checking this page for updates.
A note about the video above. I realized only after seeing the video that you cannot see the complete flame that I was seeing when doing the demonstration video. There is an orange red glow around the spark when the water explodes which the video does not pick-up. Also take note that not much water is needed to see the glow and you can kill the effect if you add too much water mist.
Thank you for looking and please remember to Share.

New, added August 22nd
Below is the circuit description that I am testing at this time and the Schematic is (in black) at the bottom of the page. It was drawn for me by user name: Aka from a hand drawn circuit I posted. Thanks Aka for your help ;)
The differences from the original circuit is this one has a Charge Inductor, a smaller uf value Non Polarized Capacitor and 1N5408 1000 volt rated diodes.
It is more advanced and if you are a beginner, I would recommend the original circuit and don't bother using an inverter. Just use your home power from the outlets.
The Full Wave Bridge Rectifier is a standard off the self item 400v 5 amps or more if you wish.
The Air Core Charge Inductor I made is from a primary of a MOT that I cut out and recoiled it. The Inductor center opening is 38mm. The O.D. is 60mm and the width is 40mm. From what I can tell the Mag Wire is about 14 Gauge. The coils DC resistance is 0.4 Ohms and measures 2.23mH on my inductance meter.
The Relay is an Automotive 12vdc relay rated 40A/30A which is SPDT . I did not show the relay coil in the diagram since the black marker I was using is too large to show details. The relays rest position is on the bridge to cap. I use a 12vdc battery to activate the relay coil to discharge the cap to the coil and diode string.
The Capacitor is 6.8uf 250 AC (non polarized). I go this this cap out an old heavy wood 30" color TV unit. I don't know why but this cap takes the best peak charges and gives an amazing bang for its uF size ??? My capacitance meter says it is 6.9uf but gives the same kind of bang as my 22uf 350v polarized, which I also check on meter and it is actually 26uf. I don't understand that.
The Coil is an Automotive Coil made by Accel part on. 8140C. The Primary DC resistance is 1.3 Ohms and measures 6.46mH on inductance meter. Secondary DC resistance is 9.10 K Ohms and I cannot measure H on my meter.
The Diodes are a string of 6 of 1N5408 in series and are rated at 1000 volts at 3A each.
The Spark Plug used for spark gap is from a 3HP gas lawn mower engine that will be used for testing the circuit. Modifications to the plug are: I cut off the J electrode and also filed down the center electrode so both are at same level. With this mod. the Plug now has a 3mm gap. The plugs internal resistor has been removed and replaced with 3 pcs. of correct length 14 gauge solid copper wire to complete the contact.
Bedini and Bearden talk about the downword side of a short, sharp voltage spike as being capable of drawing radiant energy into a circuit. You seem to have achieved this phenomenon.
I can hardly wait to see the schematic diagrams of this circuit and parts list. I am also on the Yahoo group as I am sure many others here are also. I have 2 donor cars now. The first is a '74 Chevy Blazer with virtually the same engine that S1R's El Camino has (350 with standard 4 banger and interchangeable jets). My 2nd donor car is a '98 Ford Windstar with all the pollution and computer crap on it.
The team I have assembled will post every success, failure, trial and tribulation to this forum as well as on the Yahoo group forum. Making all this as PUBLIC DOMAIN as possible is what will keep everyone safe and secure without any threats from the "MIB" as they are called on the Yahoo forum.
Our goal is to get the Blazer working first, gather all the necessary data that the newer car's computer systems receive from their various sensors, and then either design circuits to fool the computer or hopefully find someone skilled in the art to be able to reprogram the computer altogether.
I will keep everyone posted!
