"INSIGHTS INTO THE PROPRIETARY SYNDROME"
By Ken MacNeill
Winter Haven, Florida
To give you some background on myself, I have been interested in the energy situation since I can remember. I have built all kinds of devices, solar energy panels, windmills, photovoltaic arrays, flywheel devices, and also carburetors of which I will talk on Sunday. In my background I am an accomplished tool and diemaker, moldmaker, been involved in Design Engineering for the past 12 years, primarily in the automation area.
My first real involvement with other people in this alternate energy area was at the Toronto Symposium in 1981 where I met George Hathaway as well as over 100 other people that believe in the impossible according to orthodox science. Since that time I have make myself aware of just about everything that is happening in this field, and believe me there are some really fantastic things going on. The rediscovery of some of the technology that was lost in the past is finally coming to realization, for instance the Tesla technology, the Hubbard device, the Moray approach to tapping into the free energy supply that we're sitting in without even knowing it.
A friend of mine gave me a real insight possibly without even knowing it. He said the problem could only be solved by just considering the problem of weighing a glass of water at 500 feet under water. Here you are under water with a glass of water: how do you weigh it???
The analogy is the same for us. Here we sit in the vastness of the cosmos on top of one of the biggest magnets known to us and we are like the glass of water. We are in the vast ocean of energy. Look around us and watch just the weather for instance, the next thunderstorm, think of all the electrical potential being wasted. That energy is there; it is very real.
Tom Bearden, one of our upcoming speakers, may have illustrated it quite well by the bird sitting on top of the wire with 13,000 volts going through it. We all know that it could kill him but is doesn't. I am positive that within this group will be the ways and means for making the energy situation of the future change.
Now to the other side of this coin. Why has not this technology been allowed to become established? We have to look at the 'profit motive' involved. If we have free energy, how will they charge for it? What will happen to the billions of dollars that the utilities and oil companies and the government backing these establishments do if we can give the people independence from the chains of having to pay for energy?
One question that has been uppermost in my mind for the last year has been the rhetoric given by our elected representatives about the energy situation and the amount of money given to small researchers who could possibly give us a viable approach to becoming energy independent. Who gets the government money?? Let me get a little audience participation in the question. How many of you have all the money you need for research in the energy area? Everyone who has please stand!!!!! Now let me mention a few of the names of the companies that get the money. See if you recognize them: Exxon, Gulf Oil, General Electric, Westinghouse, TRW, Exide Storage Battery, all manufacturers or producers of fossil fuel products. We need to get away from the fossil fuels for the future and get into something that can indeed give us a future because we are rapidly depleting not only our natural resources but our air and water. All because of burning fossil fuels. We fund our universities and colleges in the most directed of ways. If you want to explore the possibilities in some some of the more esoteric areas, for instance the ones you will be hearing about in the next three days, there is no money for that. WHY??? Because of the possibility that we might succeed. What would our government do if all the American people could go back and forth to work, heat their homes, run their businesses without paying taxes on gas and oil? Consider the fact that all of the gas stations would go out of business or would have to find other ways of making money. Many complimentary businesses would also fold. But alas, this is America. What are we here for??? To perpetuate Big Business, Big Government, or to advance toward the future, not expending all of our natural resources but to save them to make the goods of the future. Coal and oil both can be used for making all kinds of things besides fuels; the list is endless.
It is my feeling that the technology may be already here and may have been shown to the government. It even may have been introduced to our patent office and turned down. Because as you know, there is no such thing as a perpetual motion device. And I agree with the premise because forever is a long time.
But there are surely some of the devices or parts thereof that have been introduced to the government or to big business in the past which have been shelved. Tesla's transmission device is a classic illustration probably best known to this group. What happened is that they removed the money from him to do his research and effectively stifled this remarkable man. How many other times has it happened to someone not so well known? At this moment, there are over 3,000 devices or applications in the patent office that have been branded as security or put under wraps by the secrecy order, Title 35, U.S. Code (1952) Sections 181-188. What is security? How is it defined? I have had many inventors or other scientists tell me that they did not want to discuss their invention with me or others because they might lose it to us or we might tell someone else before they got it onto the market. Believe me, it won't get there by going through the patent process. It is my feeling that if such a device were introduced at this level, then it would be put under the Secrecy Act. I don't know that I am correct in this assumption. But I cannot imagine a government like ours wanting to commit financial suicide. So what better way than to brand something as a secret?
I would like to read the Secrecy Order to you so that you may better understand my concern. Please pay close attention. I think it is very important. To you or anyone!!! Consider your receiving this:
(Title 35, United States Code (1952), sections 181-188)
NOTICE: To the applicant above named, his heirs, and any and all of his assignees, attorneys and agents, hereinafter designated principals:
You are hereby notified that your application as above identified has been found to contain subject matter, the unauthorized disclosure of which might be detrimental to the national security, and you are ordered in nowise to publish or disclose the invention or any material information with respect thereto, including hitherto unpublished details of the subject matter of said application, in any way to any person not cognizant of the invention prior to the date of the order, including any employee of the principals, but to keep the same secret except by written consent first obtained of the Commissioner of Patents, under the penalties of 35 U.S.C. (1952) 182, 186.
Any other application already filed or hereafter filed which contains any significant part of the subject matter of the above identified application falls within the scope of this order. If such other application does not stand under a security order, it and the common subject matter should be brought to the attention of the Security Group, Licensing and Review, Patent Office.
If, prior to the issuance of the secrecy order, any significant part of the subject matter has been revealed to any person, the principals shall promptly inform such person of the secrecy order and the penalties for improper disclosure. However, if such part of the subject matter was disclosed to any person in a foreign country or foreign national in the U.S., the principals shall not inform such person of the secrecy order, but instead shall promptly furnish to the Commissioner of Patents the following information to the extent not already furnished: date of disclosure; name and address of the disclosee; identification of such part; and any authorization by a U.S. government agency to export such part. If the subject matter is included in any foreign patent application, or patent, this should be identified. The principals shall comply with any related instructions of the Commissioner.
This order should not be construed in any way to mean that the Government has adopted or contemplates adoption of the alleged invention disclosed in this application; nor is it any indication of the value of such invention.
It is my feeling that something on the order of a so-called 'free energy device' would receive this treatment. My only approach would be to go to the public domain. That is, get the information or the device out there to enough people that they could not stop you. This group looks like the best group to give this information to. Hopefully it will forthcoming in the next three days.
