Another Blast from the Past

May 31, 2015

It seems that this has been around for some time, and has become quite neglected. Still, it tells one all one needs to know, or wants to know, about Searl. Do not forget that this is someone who is closely tied to Ron: they have websites which link to one another, they have a mutual friend (Bob Gray, former owner of and Ron has suggested – as Civil List Scientist – that the UK government should finance this crook. Let that guide your voting (see side-bar).


What Does Tredyfferin Mean, Ron?

Here is the disgraced Russell Anderson, crackpot ’employee’ of crook, John Searl, lecturing at a library with a Welsh name:

Searl Update

May 30, 2015

The convicted thief, saboteur and investment conman, John Searl, has an eerie ability (like Hitler) to persuade far more gifted people to do things for him. But he also has a history (again like Hitler) of suddenly ‘falling out’ with them as well: that is what happened with Mr Gray, original owner of the website. Among those whom Searl has bent to his will is Bradley Lockerman, minor actor and  soap-star: he, aptly, had a role in ‘Dumb and Dumber’ and even persuaded Jim Carrey to pose with a group of most of the leading perpetual-motion/antigravity cranks in the world (including Ron’s sometime co-author and sometime AIAS Fellow, ‘Dr’ Bearden). Lockerman then went on to produce a very professional documentary about Searl (just as Fucilla did for Ron, but less professionally given that Tugboat was unwisely trusted with the narration). But now Searl has savagely turned on him:

(The ‘Lurch’ lookalike is Mike Windle and the other bookend is Jason Verbelli; remark how appropriate the heading seems*. Yes, watch out for these frauds.) Ron of course is one of those who has fallen under Searl’s spell, and the website has a link to one of Searl’s (many) sites. At least one of Searl’s sites has a link back to How cozy, how embarrassing. How about a vote: should the UK’s ‘leading scientist’ be so closely linked to the UK’s leading perpetual motion (and antigravity, and cancer-cure) conman?

*Note added, 10th November 2015: at the time of writing the above, the Searl page included an irrelevant heading from a newspaper, which the conmen at Searl-central had arranged as though it applied to the new non-persons. Presumably somebody objected to that and he had to step down and remove it in order to avoid a defamation case.

AIAS / UPITEC Conference in Idaho

May 30, 2015

I suggest that as many Fellows of AIAS and UPITEC should attend the Idaho conference, especially the electrical and electronic engineers. This would accelerate the production of a device taking energy from spacetime and using low energy nuclear reaction. Sean MacLachlan works for Hewlett Packard in Boise, Idaho and could take minutes of the meeting for future open source publication. All other aspects of ECE theory could be discussed at the same time. There is enough ECE theory to sink a supertanker, and discussion of experiments would be optimal.”

Yes, it is important to get the electrical engineers in, because they are the source of most pseudoscience. Eric Laithwaite (of ludicrous ‘gyroscopic propulsion’ infame) was of course an electrical engineer. And then there was Harold Aspden, who rushed to patent cold-fusion ahead of Fleischman when they were both at the same university*. Aspden in fact succeeded in conning £45000 out of the UK government in order to ‘develop’ an ‘over-unity’ device (aka perpetual-motion machine). The ‘motor’ was in fact the brainchild (LOL) of a Dr Adams; head of the Australian branch of IEEE! Even the convicted criminal and perpetual-motion fraudster, John Searl (see Marquis Who’s Who), was a lowly electrician and coil-winder.  We wonder how people like Siemens Stain and Sean Beanbrain manage to keep their jobs at reputable companies. To a rational physicist, that is exactly the same as a hospital employing Jimmy So-Vile. And of course that never happened. Oops!  As for experiments, it is nearly 100 years since certain real scientists were convinced that they had produced gold by non-nuclear means. What had actually happened was that they were using more accurate analysis methods than ever before, and they had in fact proved only that gold had a sufficiently high vapor-pressure to allow it to drift in, as fumes, from a another laboratory nearby. As one of the Darwins pointed out, “bad theories are the comedies of science, bad experiments are its tragedies”. So just keep up the comedy, Ron. The supertanker is a nice analogy: something which is liable to spread nasty superficial material that is difficult to clean up … even before it sinks.

*And which university was that? Oh yes, Southampton. Were you not belittling it recently just because someone there had given Sam Spade a taste of his own medicine? So, to be logical, you were saying that Southampton employs rubbish scientists: like Fleischman, the one who started the cold-fusion nonsense? Like Aspden, who stole funds that might have helped the poor? If you cannot be truthful, at least be consistent.

Is There a Nobel Prize for Lying?

My Nominations for the Nobel Prize

May 29, 2015

I have been told many times ever since I was a post doctoral that I deserve a Nobel Prize, on one occasion I was told that I deserved four of them for various discoveries.”

That is odd/unlikely, given that even your ‘opera omnia’ papers are little-cited. The speakers, if they even existed, must have been scientifically incompetent.

“I was told by Richard Amoroso on 7th June 2009 (recorded on this blog) that an anonymous member of the Nobel Prize Committee had informed Amoroso in direct conversation that I should win a Nobel Prize. Amoroso interpreted this to mean that I had received the necessary number of nominations to make it probable that I would be given a prize. ”

Amoroso is a crank who is the Director of the flaky Noetic Institute. Guess who is a Fellow there: your good friend ‘Professor’ Fucilla.

(unfortunately, Lium University seems to have fallen off the Earth). Of course, everybody there (Noetic) is a professor; just as everybody at AIAS is apparently a ‘professor’. Come to think of it, that is probably the main point of AIAS and the Noetic Institute: havens where failed academics can pretend to be successful. So can one therefore really believe anything that someone like Amoroso says? They probably nominate each other for prizes on a daily basis.  

“The world’s best reference vehicle, Marquis, has begun to record my Nobel Prize nominations.”

It has also listed the perpetual-motion conman, John Searl, as having earned a BA degree at the age of 14. The editors did not know or care that the awarding body was supposedly an orphanage! And that is the world’s best reference vehicle? Have you considered a career in stand-up comedy? Your one-liners are priceless.

“Elsevier’s SciTopics also tipped me for a Nobel Prize. So I do not think that there is any harm in mentioning this, especially as it is in the public domain.”

SciTopics did nothing of the sort. In fact, they threw you off their site as soon as they realized what you are. Tell us Ron, how do you keep the other AIAS members on-side when you tell such blatant lies? Have they no free will?

Ninety Minute Presentation by Dr. Douglas Lindstrom

May 29, 2015

Agreed, I am certain that Doug will do an excellent job.

In a message dated 29/05/2015 11:29:18 GMT Daylight Time, writes:

Doug, this is an impressive invitation, you have a 90 min time slot, that is a lot. Directly after you, John Bedini is scheduled, you can present some of the result from our Bedini paper (although it is agreed today that the Bedini machine is not overunity). That would be a good comprehensive point.


The most ‘comprehensive point’ to make would be that there is no such thing as ‘over-unity’ or ‘free energy’ (in the sense used in the lunatic fringe) or perpetual motion. Those who discuss such things theoretically are idiots, and those who market supposedly over-unity devices, or sell plans and books on how to build them, are crooks. And do not be impressed by talk of patents: care to guess when the last attempt was made to patent a self-blowing windmill? 1790? 1845? 1927? Nope, try yesterday (WO2015077257)! Mr Obadan is also trying to print his own money. Claiming, as Ron does, that the energy ‘comes from spacetime’ is a vacuous statement (pun intended). It would first have to be proved independently that that is a viable concept … and it isn’t: even the much-vaunted ‘zero-point energy’ is not thought (by sane physicists) to be exploitable. There is certainly something revolutionary about such proceedings. That is, like the ‘founding fathers’, they are all very conscious of the fact that they ‘may as well hang together as they will certainly hang separately’. What are the odds that anyone there will be at all critical of their beliefs?  

Is That Really a Good Idea?

Subj: energy conference


Here are the links to the conference in Idaho that I will be presenting at in July.

The conference organizer gave the okay to post them.”

Do you really want to let everybody know that Lindy consorts with perpetual-motion loonies of that ilk (other than yourself of course)? In a properly-run world, several of the speakers at that conference would be behind bars for fraud. As we have mentioned many times before, having anything good to say about Tesla immediately labels the speaker as a flake. Tesla has become the patron saint of free-energy fraudsters. It is also a safe bet that, if anyone possessing a genuine doctorate believes in ‘over-unity’, then that doctorate is in electrical engineering. It is somewhat ironic that so many electrical engineers, in general, do not understand induction phenomena or, indeed, physics in general.  And are you happy with the Conference blog, where it is written, “The first [speaker] is Doug Lindstrom, PhD with the AIAS (Alpha Institute of Advanced Studies). He works with Myron Evans who Tom Bearden considers the most important physicist alive.”  It cannot be good to be praised by a paranoid conman who had to buy a doctorate, can it? Was that praise perhaps pay-back for the fact that you and the other AIAS pseudoscientists explained theoretically how Bearden could obtain energy simply by wrapping wire around a magnet? Except that he couldn’t; that was just a lie, Ron, albeit a patented lie. Have you forgotten how you also wrote a paper explaining how one can run a ‘magnetic’ motor without any input? Except that one can’t: that was just another lie. But when you wrote that paper, you gave Her Majesty’s treasury as your affiliation. You have some cheek: involving your monarch (and cousin) in such blatant deception. Of course, we blame Physica B for accepting such a ridiculous paper. The  people at Physica do not seem to be too bright. After all, the Podkletnov antigravity rubbish first appeared in Physica C! We think that you ought to think about getting some ‘sound-bites’ ready for the tabloid Press. Although academic in tone, shocking details from that forthcoming book will certainly trickle down to street level, and people will want to know why a ‘fully paid-up’ crackpot is receiving a Civil List Pension.

Checking Note 316(1)

May 27, 2015

Many thanks to Dr. Doug Lindstrom for going through this note. The checking is very important work. It makes it virtually impossible for genuine scientists to criticize the technique of ECE theory.”

In that case, why do you not send the work to a reputable physics or mathematics journal? With all of your millions of followers being out there, surely at least one of them has, by now, infiltrated the editorial system of a major journal. After all, the scientologists even managed to infiltrate the IRS. Failing a real journal, why not try one of the many fake scientific journals which specialize in publishing pseudoscience? No, we know why you now avoid any sort of publication: it is because the feedback would reveal that there is absolutely no interest in E(Crap)E, and that you and your cult would be the only ones to cite the work in a non-critical manner. It is clearly much safer to stick with the meaningless ‘scientometrics’. A thought occurs: rather than publish your work, why not publish your plight (of much put-upon genius)? New Scientist is a very low-brow ‘science’ magazine, with certainly the lowest editorial standards among any similar magazine world wide. It has always been run by tabloid-style journalists, and advised by some very dubious ‘experts’*. The rag even once put a ludicrous antigravity machine (Emdrive) on the cover; so they clearly have no  shame; no wish to educate the general public. They also have a track record of showcasing ‘dissident scientists’ (that is, crackpots), again confusing and misleading the general public.  Why not contact them?

*One of them was Robert Matthews, Ig Nobel prize-winner: the journalist who publicized the rubbish Podkletnov research (which would certainly have gone unnoticed otherwise) and also publicized some ‘energy from water’ nonsense in a ‘quality’ Sunday newspaper article.  Perhaps he could be your hero; as he was for Rupert Sheldrake.

Summary of the Scientometrics

May 24, 2015

The scientometrics will probably soon be the most popular item on and many thanks to Dave Burleigh, Sean MacLachlan, and others for setting them up, going all the way back to Bob Gray in May 2002.”

Not popular at all then. And let us recall that Mr Gray was mixed up at that time with the thief, saboteur and investment conman, John Searl: a ‘poor pensioner’ who nevertheless has companies registered in various on-shore and off-shore tax havens. Mr Gray likes to ‘think inside the box’ and has patented a propulsion device which propels from within a closed volume. He is apparently a stranger to Newton’s third law. So, with his belief in propellant-less propulsion (aka antigravity), he fits in perfectly with the perpetual-motion fans that make up AIAS.  

“I derive a lot of important information from the scientometrics, ”

And not a little ersatz comfort, we hazard. We always imagine you, hunched like a miser  … endlessly counting your counterfeit coins. 

“which show that the standard physics is being taught like propaganda, and it is no longer Baconian science. Gareth Evans recently mentioned that school children have come to the same conclusion – teenagers from age eleven to eighteen know that standard physics is obsolete, and are forced to regurgitate its ideas. So the writing is on every classroom wall.”

Does the education department at Ceredigion County Council know that it has a viper in its midst; a pseudoscientist who consorts with other notorious crackpots? It is lucky that local-authority pen-pushers do not know s**t from Shinola when it comes to science, eh Gaz? 

“Starting in Dec. 2014 I began to study the quality of the feedback in more depth, and found that the ECE theory is being studied by the best universities in the world as shown in UFT307, and has been since inception in March 2003. After only twelve years (2003 to 2015) it is a hugely influential theory that is studied by the silent majority of the best in the world. So using a military metaphor the standard model has been outflanked and is being forced to retreat or otherwise be surrounded and destroyed by silent criticism.”

Oh, that is how it works is it? We thought that they were supposed to incorporate E(Crap)E into their research and teaching. We did not know that all of the followers simply stand around, silently staring like ‘Midwich Cuckoos’.  Or have you simply cobbled together little more than 12 years of meaningless ‘noise’.

“The small group of string theorists that have taken over physics is being silently ignored by entire professions in physics, chemistry and engineering. The methods used to deal with “dissidents” or real thinkers in science are not much different from any totalitarian regime, (I know this from less than delightful first hand experience) so ECE is studied carefully in private.”

So more like a cult than a scientific movement. It sounds rather like the ineffective ‘Liberation Army’ in “Life of Brian”. 

“There has been such a huge amount of study that string theory and so on have no credibility. The scientometrics are now published in a softback volume at £8.99 by New Generation in London for the purpose of providing local libraries and the National Library of Wales with copies.”


“No science publisher can begin to match the power of AIAS publishing of, and combined. It is also known that ECE has been studied for the twelve years of its lifetime by students in the top ranking universities. It is well known to all that the old physics tried to censor ECE and stop the march of ideas, or stop the tide from coming in. Last but not least ECE is here to stay. That is easily seen by extrapolation of the very high statistical quality of the scientometrics over the past eleven years over the next fifty, hundred or n years.”

There is no success, there are no followers. This is all just a delusion. It is of interest at all only because it is a delusion held by someone who should be an ornament to British science … not a stain on its reputation.
