Hi Timothy,


No, the idea of a permanent magnet self-powering motor has been pursued by many inventors, and by some of them successfully. The Steorn group in Ireland had and have such a working motor, but did not understand the vacuum interaction ongoing in the asymmetry of the motor. They also did not understand that the local vacuum (and its interaction with one's motor or other gadget using energy from the vacuum) can vary from place to place, as pointed out to Frank Golden and I by Professor William Tiller, former head of the Materials Science Department at Stanford. Tiller had run into that specific effect and so had become aware that one often “grew an archetype or conditioned form” in that local vacuum exchange with one’s system. He himself had had a system demonstrate this “growth” of Tiller’s “archetype” for his special detector.


Golden and I had run into that effect with a Golden overunity machine which, when relocated several hundred miles, suddenly did not produce COP>1.0 in the new location. We were thunderstruck until Tiller explained it to us.


So the Steorn intended demonstration at some little distance from the original development site was catastrophic to them.


All such successful self-powering asymmetric permanent magnet motors have been ruthlessly suppressed to date. Latest highly suspicious “capture” of a legitimate procedure to make asymmetric permanent magnets – and thus suppress the process from use by our citizens – was by our own U.S. Department of Energy in 2001. Apparently the DoE has also kept this fact – the availability of mass-producing asymmetric permanent magnets with high energy product and thus easily assembling self-powering asymmetric PM motors and motor generators – completely unknown to the President, the Congress, and the American people. There's an article on our website here with the three international patent numbers of interest. In the 2001 patent where DoE “funded a grant that produced the process again, after it had already been invented”, you can see DoE's statement essentially assuming control of the process.


So the idea of an asymmetric permanent magnet motor is certainly not new with me. The late Howard Johnson, e.g., pursued it arduously for decades. He succeeded at least once in achieving such a demonstrable self-powering model that I personally tested for several hours – and shortly thereafter, that specific demonstrator was promptly stolen from him by a night-time very professional break-in to his laboratory in Virginia. The only thing stolen was that specific successful self-powering little Johnson demonstrator.


John Bedini is certainly capable of making such a motor, and he has done so in the past using his own special methods. But presently he is vigorously trying to get his advanced battery chargers into production and onto the market. John and his few assistants are trying to do the work of at least two dozen men, and my hat is off to him for making the most valiant effort I've ever seen to get highly effective systems out there onto the world market.


DeGeus suffered a “mysterious” fatal heart attack when he parked his car in the Douglas International Airport on his way to the Netherlands to sign a contract and receive very substantial funding to get his successful “self-powering battery” on the world market and give us self-powering electrical cars. You can take tourmaline and reduce it to crystals, and get a strange effect. Each crystal is like a little battery, with a positive charge on one side and a negative charge on the other. In short, it is a dipole. And you can use a tiny little conductor across that “crystal battery” to power a little bitty load. Eerily, the crystal will continue to power the load and also to maintain its own source dipolarity. In short, it will continue freely extracting the EM energy from the local vacuum via the self-maintained asymmetry of its source dipole, and thus freely powering its load.


Make a plane of such crystals oriented parallel, and you will increase the available current. Then increase the “depth” by adding other planes behind it, and you also increase the voltage.


So if one gains good control of the process, and can get to other materials by finding how to elicit the self-sustaining dipole effect, then the self-powering battery for self-powering electric automobiles becomes  readily possible.


The watergas process is also again very extant, and several inventors have working model systems that produce COP>1.0 easily. Kanzius' process is one such, and his related cancer cure method has passed initial animal testing with 100% success (100% of the cancers in the lab animals were simply and easily cured, without all the harmful radiation etc. and damaging to the animals).


For PM self-powering motors, in theory you can also use "edge switching" (switch the magnetic field in just the edge of a bar magnet, to just a tiny bit of depth) can also be used to make the back mmf region and the forward mmf region asymmetric.


The point is this: It isn't the power that we externally input into a coil in a permanent magnet motor, a coil judicially placed in the back mmf section to allow us to break the symmetry of the back mmf region. That asymmetry – once achieved by any means – is what actually powers the system! All that inputting our paid-for energy to the coil does, is produce the necessary asymmetry.


And the materials and motor and assembly of the motor system care not one hoot how we get that asymmetry to be there. Get it anyway you wish, and the motor will then power itself and a load, taking its input energy directly from the seething virtual state vacuum via that broken symmetry.


Every joule of EM energy in the universe and in all our circuits is already extracted directly from the seething virtual state vacuum by the asymmetry of the source dipole. It is NOT the cranking of the shaft of the generator that powers the circuit! All that cranking input does, is continually restore the source dipole inside the generator that our electrical engineering symmetrical circuits and systems keep destroying faster than they power their loads!


As Tesla (who had discovered energy from the "active medium" circuits three decades earlier) stated in 1919:


"The Hertz wave theory of wireless transmission may be kept up for a while, but I do not hesitate to say that in a short time it will be recognized as one of the most remarkable and inexplicable aberrations of the scientific mind which has ever been recorded in history." [Nikola Tesla, "The True Wireless,” Electrical Experimenter, May 1919].


The 1892 symmetrization of the Heaviside equations (erroneously taught to our EEs as "Maxwell's theory") was specifically done to stop Tesla cold and prevent him from giving the world free energy systems, taking their energy directly from the "active medium". Quoting Tesla earlier:


"Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point in the universe. This idea is not novel... We find it in the delightful myth of Antheus, who derives power from the earth; we find it among the subtle speculations of one of your splendid mathematicians...Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static or kinetic? If static our hopes are in vain; if kinetic – and this we know it is, for certain – then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature." [Nikola Tesla, in a speech in New York to the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, 1891. Quoted from back cover of his biography, Margaret Cheney, Tesla: Man Out of Time].


So what we should be doing in our vaunted scientific community is coming down on our entire electrical engineering establishment, and brute-forcing them to go back and remove that insane symmetrization of the Heaviside equations that Lorentz shoved on them arbitrarily in 1892.


In short, turn all our young doctoral candidates and post docs loose on the problem of developing and using practical asymmetrical Maxwellian systems, and in two years there will never be an energy crisis again anywhere on this planet.


Advanced physics (Nobelist Lee so stated it himself) already tells us (and has done so for 50 years) that when we do have a broken symmetry, then in that broken symmetry something virtual has been and is being converted to observable.


In short, any broken symmetry such as a dipole or a charge with its surrounding polarized vacuum, is ALREADY extracting and integrating real EM energy from the seething virtual state vacuum energy it continually absorbs, and then pouring this free EM energy (real observable photons) out freely and steadily.


It is astoundingly simple to evoke an everlasting free electromagnetic energy wind from the active vacuum. E.g., just place a charged capacitor on a permanent magnet so that the E-field of the cap is at right angles to the H-field of the magnet. That silly 2-dollar gadget then will sit there endlessly and freely pour out real Poynting EM energy flow S, given by the simple equation S = E X H. That equation is verifiable in every EM textbook in the world, over in the Poynting energy flow theory section.


So for peanuts we can easily get real EM energy flowing freely from the local inexhaustible virtual state vacuum, and it will do so indefinitely. There is no free energy problem! Instead, there is the problem of building and using properly ASYMMETRIC collection and dissipation systems to power our loads.


To make a proper "EM windmill" to intercept and collect some of that easily-achieved and real EM energy flow, and then to SEPARATELY dissipate the collected EM energy in the loads to power them, an ASYMMETRIC system is required.


So our inane electrical engineering profession – since 1892 at its very beginning – has all our electrical engineers building a SYMMETRICAL windmill, and then having us pay to burn fuel etc. to input energy to the "windmill" that does nothing but produce the asymmetry.


We've had group theory in our universities since 1870, for goodness sakes! But if you ask the average EE professor "What were and are the ramifications of Lorentz's symmetrization of the Heaviside equations in 1892, and the continuing symmetrization of these equations today as the "electrical engineering model"?" Then the usual professor has not the foggiest notion of what you have asked him or what you have steered him to.


And as long as our engineers inanely continue to build only SYMMETRICAL Maxwellian/Heaviside systems, then we shall have to continue to feed in energy that we ourselves pay for, to produce the necessary asymmetry.


The energy crisis in this world – and the tragic deaths of hundreds of millions of persons worldwide because of their abject poverty due to no cheap energy for a modern national economy – rests directly on the shoulders of our scientific community, and specifically on the shoulders of our electrical engineering community and profession.


Anyway, with the present rapidly escalating oil prices and gasoline prices, this nation seems headed rather immediately toward a great economic collapse also. If the MidEast explodes (which is likely most any time now), that will immediately chop off the rest of the MidEast Oil from the U.S. and Western Europe. And then we will not be discussing the price of gasoline at our pumps. Instead, we will be asking if there is a pump anywhere that has any gasoline left.


If the big diesel trucks stop for four or five days, the food in our cities will also be depleted (it will not be being replenished daily by the big trucks). In that case, there will quickly be great hunger, rioting, looting, and chaos in our cities – requiring the immediate full application of a very rigorous martial law.


Watch for it! Unless our scientific community very quickly wakes up from its century-long sleep, and gets its head out of the sand in its ostrich position it's been in since 1892, then that's exactly what we are headed for.


Best wishes,


Tom Bearden




Subject: Question for Tom Bearden @ PM Motor/Generator


Hello Tom,


I have several questions about the asymmetric permanent magnet



Can the Asymmetric PM Motor Generator that you described in the 01

July 07 Technical Paper be correctly called a Bearden Motor?  That is

to say, is it your conception?


Will a piece of iron placed on one side of a magnet to reduce the

field strength on that side produce the desired asymmetry?


There are many different formulations of NdFeB that are used for

neodymium magnets, each with different magnetic properties and field

strengths.  Can neo magnets be used if the layers consist of different

formulations of NdFeB, each successive layer having less magnetic

field strength (BHmax)?  In this case, different formulations are

compacted as thin strips in an aligning magnetic field so that all the

domains are pointing north/south.  Then the strips undergo a final

compaction in a die, also within an aligning magnetic field.  The

resulting layered magnetic material is then sintered and, finally,

magnetized to saturation.


Best regards,
