Another Winner!

Today Ron is – via Shame-of-Siemens (aka Siemens Stain) – excited about ‘primer fields’. If one believes the link that was provided, one might think that a David Lapoint of CERN has discovered  amazing new phenomena. In fact, Mr Lapoint is unknown at CERN (so why did he imply that he was in the link?) and appears to live in California: some commute! The device shown in the link also bears a close resemblance to Mr Lapoint’s perpetual-motion gadget (patent applied for) which is supposed to extract energy from magnets (yep, the usual story). But it is not only a perpetual motion machine! Lapoint claims that “these charged fields are also great for human, animal, life, etc. Within the 7700 sq.ft. building there is an amazing air quality”.   Note that Ron’s buddy, Searl (see Marquis Who’s Who), makes similar claims for his levitating perpetual-motion machine. But wait, there is even more: ” The spinning magnetic arrays also produce some very interesting benefits for straightening kinked fields within the human body, sore muscles, and other body tissues can be fixed in minutes at times, sometimes in seconds. Larger arrays will work for the whole body”. Jeez, how many more nutters is Ron going to admire in his capacity of ‘Civil List Scientist’? We shall refrain from making metaphorical comments about previous pensioners ‘spinning in their graves': they would have long ago been torn apart by centrifugal (sic) forces.

    Why’s the primer fields theory bullshit?

  2. Ron Denault Says:

    Never mind the crap about perpetual motion…
    You have to admit that some of the visual references are interesting to the point that they should be investigated . Just the idea of the field shape is certainly worth looking into.
    I am a huge fan of Tesla but even he came up with a few strange thoughts, yet we cannot dismiss his work out right seeing the abundance of results he produced.
    Mr. Lapointe may well be incorrect about some or even the majority of his claims but an open scientific mind should still consider what is plausible and investigate not simply dismiss out of hand. Science is not dogma and the discution should never be left up the the “officials” every idea should be looked into.

    Take a look at “Observation of Dirac monopoles in a synthetic magnetic field” It is an article published January 2014 on Nature.com. It is an Weekly International Journal of science. The researchers in this article have discovered (with math) what Mr. La point was trying to show on his video. Its a great Read.

    • crackpotwatch Says:

      We see no connection between the two; apart from the fact that loonies are always trying to ‘help scientists out’ by hoping to find monopoles, grand unified theories or a solution to the supposed particle/field dichotomy. LaPoint has only one aim, and that is to push his crackpot patents (US8638186, WO2013106104, US2008246361).

      • Devin Hahn Says:

        You know the David claimed to be a plasma physicist, and not a back yard alternator tink-master. Regardless this is still interesting to think about. The one thing I refuse to believe is magic, The double slit experiment conclusion is not a conclusion at all. David suggested a pretty simple explanation.

        • crackpotwatch Says:

          We can find no trace of anyone, with his name, who has a scientific track record in plasma physics. And why do people seem to think that he works at CERN? He resides in California … and appears always to have done so.

  4. Daaammmnnn Says:

    Somebody is determined to dismiss Lapoint without any actual data to counter Lapoint’s claim. Now who’s the crackpot indeed?!!

    • crackpotwatch Says:

      You have got it back to front: if someone comes up with a crackpot notion, it is that person’s responsibility to provide the proof (and it had better be very convincing proof). Youtube vids and patent applications do not count as valid evidence in the scientific world. It is sad for you, and ultimately bad for society, if you cannot understand that.

      • Devin Hahn Says:

        Repeatable physical experiments not proof of concept?

        • crackpotwatch Says:

          What experiments? We can find no trace of any experiments; only a patent application and demonstrations. A demonstration is not an experiment; demonstrations merely illustrate a phenomenon whose existence is already unquestioned. Since his patent claims to produce energy from nowhere, to sanitise air and to unkink muscles, it would have to be a pretty good experiment if he hopes to impress scientists. And if such an experiment were properly written-up and published, any replication would have to be performed by real scientists; not by himself or other members of the lunatic fringe.

  5. Sean Says:

    Lapoint sounds like a doofus with some kooky leaps of conclusions, like I do every time I get stoned. But now and then when stoned I too have an occasional actual good idea and moment of clarity rather than fool myself into thinking it was.

    He not have any idea what to do with any of it, but youd have to be an angry antagonist to not at least appreciate the elegance of some of these field theories. Particularly ring formations, and supernovae.

    He obviously stil has no idea how or why such fields arise, but broken clocks and.all that.

    • crackpotwatch Says:

      Stare at any arc discharge for long enough, and one will start to see things; especially if magnets are in the vicinity. The vids have zero information content, and his patents are demented. It is an exaggeration to call it field theory.

  6. Hank Wilson Says:

    David Lapoint, he had already been paid off even before he launched his series parts 1 thru 3. David, he knew that there would not be parts 4-7 primer field out on the world wide public webb. Anyways, I got it all and nothing else need to be published or presented. Oh David, there was one little segment that you did not cover concerning the double slit uncertainty principle…I got it-dear Dr. Lapoint….no more interference from me…lol. They had to shut him down, because even the most ignorant can understand the foundamentals of the strong forces…lol, yup, we gotta now.

  7. vivi Says:

    I find you outrageous and downright rude. Mr La Point has something you don’t and now you have time to smear rather than seek out whatever is incomplete within yourself so you share with others seeking completeness and will never arrive because you are not looking within – you are looking without. Stop the smearing campaigns and learn truths no matter where it comes from. You identify personally by posting like this. All of you!

  8. Jason Says:

    This reads like an attack piece as it mentions things other than the subject at hand. Sure this guy might have some wild ideas but there could be an element of truth here that bears more research. Electric Universe theory of cosmology (see Thunderbolts Project youtube page for Space News section on how establishment views are being tested by the day).

    When you have Hawking etc coming out questioning black holes etc in the mainstream media it never seems to cross this authors mind that accepted views can sometimes be upended completely. Of course the earth is flat you idiots! Look around you!

    People like crackpotwatch have a mental disorder and are a disgrace to what science is all about. People like him have the hubris to say things like “we don’t have time to review the actual implications because it violates our accepted views!” lmaooo

    • crackpotwatch Says:

      Crackpots always say things like that. We are tired of listening to them. Go write an article for one of the many crackpot-run journals which are spreading the real disinformation.

      • Jason Says:

        What is your major malfunction? You’ve presented nothing furthering your case. You are so closed minded you do not even listen. You are a nutcase.

  9. Jason Says:

    Who is preaching nonsense and who is not? The truth about anything unproven is subjective. The true nature of deception is when “qualified and educated individuals”, who stand in positions of power and influence, lead us to believe in unproven facts.

    Determining whether or not an argument is substantial is based upon the questions that remain after the conclusions are derived. Theoretically, the more questions that can be answered, the closer we are to the truth in our assumptions. In any proposal or theory we must consider all of the evidence and not just some of it.

    Being led to believe that science is unbiased in its linear view of human history is equally absurd as believing in the 6000-year-old creation story espoused by fundamentalists. Although it may not appear on the surface, the scientific bias is obvious because of ignored evidence that conflicts with their linear view.

    • crackpotwatch Says:

      Yep, nutters say that too. Our aim is to present the same brick-wall indifference to crackpots, that crackpots present to accepted explanations.

      • Jason Says:

        Except the difference is they explain why they disagree and present the accepted explanations. You fail to do so. You do not even take the time to get what is being conveyed. You are the one that comes across like a zealot.

      • Jason Says:

        All you’ve done in each and ever comment is engage in meaningless rhetoric and instead of taking the time to refute the opposition you make your position look weaker by resulting to such tactics. It only further entrenches the opposition. It solves nothing and makes me wonder why you even spend the time to run the site. I see elements of psychopathy and narcissism as well in your commentary.

        • crackpotwatch Says:

          The nutters are not interested in dialogue. If they want to be listened to, they should follow the example of real scientists. Posting videos on Youtube, setting up web-sites or making claims in chat rooms does not count as any sort of scientific activity. Some scientists may do all of those things, but that is not the sum of the proof of what they believe. You are lucky that our scientists even deign to reply to you.
