Sterling Allan runs the site, a site replete with everything out on the edge and beyond where regular folks and conventional scientists get suspicious and aggravated.  This writer admires and frequents Mr. Allan’ site regularly looking for the gem – as this writer is suspicious of the law like conclusions of ‘accepted science’.  History rewards those with a skeptical eye towards the ‘accepted’ norms of herd thinking.

Last week saw Mr. Allan write about Terawatt Reearch LLC out in Irvine California.  They’re saying they are “harnessing the energy of intermolecular fluctuations.”  As Mr. Allan puts it, “In the world of exotic free energy, stories are abundant, and evidence is sparse.  In the case of Terawatt Research, they’re not interested in telling stories, and their evidence is solid. They state simply: “Extensive tests and studies have resulted in the successful development of a new principle of generating energy.””

Terawatt Performance Graphs from TUV and UL

What seizes the attention is this: the very best evidence supporting their claims comes via two of the most reputable testing organizations in the world: TÜV Rhineland of North America and Underwriter Laboratories.  Skepticism rules – Calling UL gets an affirmative response; the Field Specialist did in fact go to Terawatt and provide the report as seen on Terawatt’s web site.  TUV confirmed their project and file number as well.  Humm.

One of Terawatt’s key players is James Magee, former commander of the largest anti-terrorist organization in the Department of Defense, the Marine Corps Security Forces.  He serves in Terawatt’s “internal security.”  If that sounds impressive add that one of their strategic advisors is Judge William H. Webster.  He’s the former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.  No one should be fooin’ around out there.   This is serious, and if by third party oversights and attracted personnel significant. That is often enough.  Lets see what they are revealing.

Terawatt is developing an unconventional system to create energy by developing an interactive magnetic oscillating generator.  The technology is capable of harnessing the energy of intermolecular fluctuations.

Both data plots clearly show performance frequency ranges in which much more energy is produced from the system than what is required to drive the system – at least three fold in the TUV observation.

The block diagram leaves little for imagination.  A motor spins a set of magnets that in turn spin another set that drives a generator.  More watts out than in at certain speeds.  This tests the physics of today.

Yet the Terawatt device is powered, not one of those gismos that with a flick of the finger spins.  Rather the magnets are collecting energy from somewhere and adding that to the rotating kinetic energy.   More wattage out is quite a puzzle.

But the energy was somewhere else.  A test of significance to prove solid energy added and to overcome the notion the magnetism of the magnets isn’t being consumed would be to set up the device and let it run.  If the input is 1 horsepower and the output 1.5 horsepower those magnets would be non magnetic pretty quickly.  But if Terawatts’ device has steady excess output for say, a month or a year, way past the magnetic energy in the spinning magnets, well physics has a new challenge.

Suppose the device works long term at a 50% energy gain.  That possibility in electrical generation alone would be enormous.  On the consumption side the power available for work would increase too.  Stacking the devices in series seems practical  . . .

Is Terawatt Research working a breakthrough?  Of some kind, that’s certain.  Is it real?  Insofar as the data goes, yes.  But not long enough, time matters, the added energy needs understood and operational longevity opens the door to validating reasonable questions.

For now Terawatt is a novelty.  Proven to an extent, awaiting proof over time.  Fascinating, lets hope the device will run indefinitely with astounding questions about where the added energy is coming from – hopefully with astounding answers for the future.

Mr. Allan found a gem for us.  Thank you sir!

    You’ve got to be kidding me. If this is for real, you would be able to both (a) drive it under its own energy – hooking up the output to the input and (b) adding a load to the shaft output to produce a net excess of energy. I don’t hear this happening in this scenario in any of the materials. I’ll pay more attention when that happens.

    I really enjoy reading your website and I am refreshed by its optimism and positive outlook, but unless I’m missing something, this appears to be a perpetual motion machine, which is impossible. I don’t care if the head of the CIA and FBI got suckered into it, it’s fake!

    It’s appropriate time to make some plans for
    the long run and it is time to be happy. I have read this submit and if I may
    I want to counsel you few interesting things or advice.
    Perhaps you could write subsequent articles referring to this article.
    I wish to read more issues about it!
