Tom Bearden explains a
"Free Energy Generator"
"In ordinary electrical engineering, here is a proven "free energy generator" example. Just lay a charged capacitor (or electret) across a permanent magnet so that the E-field of the capacitor (or electret) is at right angles to the H-field of the magnet. That optimizes EXH and therefore represents a maximized free and continuous flow of EM energy extracted directly from the vacuum. In the Poynting energy flow theory, that anachronism does appear, but it is ignored by mumbling about "static fields" etc.
By Whittaker 1903 and 1904 decomposition, there is no such thing as a really "static" EM field or potential in the entire universe; any "static" EM field or potential decomposes into bidirectional longitudinal wavepairs in harmonic sets with differential functions imposed on the ensemble. So a static EM field is rather like a perfect waterfall; it appears "static" in overall form and local energy intensity, but it is comprised of internal parts in continuous motion.
Every charge in the universe also can easily be shown (experimentally) to be steadily pouring out real observable EM energy in all directions in 3-space, without any input of observable EM energy at all. This problem --- that of the source charge and its associated potentials and fields and their energy, reaching across the universe --- has been ignored for more than a century, and has been almost entirely hidden from the university students. The reason is that it seriously faults the present electrodynamics model used in electrical engineering. Either one must totally surrender the conservation of energy law, or else there must be a non-observable input of energy to every charge. The standard model, by ignoring this problem, implicitly assumes that every charge in the universe is a perpetual motion machine, freely creating energy out of nothing at all.
That of course is untenable; instead, one must turn to particle physics where the problem was solved in 1957. In the modern view an "isolated" observable charge is surrounded by a clustering swarm of virtual charges of opposite sign. So the "charge" is actually a dipole, thus exhibiting the broken symmetry of opposite charges proven by Wu et all and certified by the award of the Nobel Prize to Lee and Yang. This conclusively proves that the source charge continuously absorbs virtual photon energy from the active vacuum, coherently integrates that virtual energy into real observable photon energy, and then continuously emits the real, observable photon energy in all directions in 3-space at the speed of light, thereby establishing its fields and potentials and their energy, reaching across the universe. The fundamental charges in the original matter in the universe have been doing this (absorbing, transducing, and freely emitting EM energy from the vacuum) for some 14 billion years, and no engineer has had to provide the input energy to a single charge yet.
What we have is a situation where the scientific and engineering community continues to use a model in electrical engineering whose foundations are 137 years old, from before the discovery of the electron, the atom, the nucleus, etc. and before relativity, quantum mechanics, quantum electromagnetics, quantum field theory, and most of modern particle physics. The old EE model assumes an inert vacuum (falsified for many decades in particle physics) and a flat local spacetime (falsified since 1915 by general relativity). The reason such a horribly antiquated model is still used is so it will continue to guarantee COP<1.0 electrical power systems burning those hydrocarbons, using those nuclear fuel rods, etc. and thereby enriching the cartels that control the energy resources of the planet (and also continuing to seriously pollute the biosphere, poison and kill off species, contribute to global warming, keep the gas pump meter at the gas pump for your automobile, and keep the electric power meter on your home). It also keeps many of the poor nations of the world from developing further; all modern economies are based on cheap energy, presently mostly cheap oil.
We must have a change to this situation. Else the present MidEast situation --- which is obviously on the way to exploding and threatening the critical MidEast oil supplies again --- and the terrorist war now begun will eventually collapse the economies of much of the world's nations, resulting in something like a return to the Dark Ages and also resulting in horrendous loss of human lives.
In all the "alternative" energy proposals, there is only one which will hold up under rigorous scrutiny: the ability to take the electrical energy locally, cheaply, and cleanly from the local vacuum. "
