[The story you are about to read is derived from a carefully researched paper 
presented by Dr. Peter Lindemann before a private audience in Irvine, California
on September 12, 2000. The lecture was titled ³The Free Energy Secrets of Cold 
Electricity² . It detailed the story of Radiant Energy and its successful 
application by Edwin Gray in an over unity motor design which Gray debuted in 
1973. The real detective work ( & credit) in uncovering Tesla¹s discovery of 
Radiant energy came from author Gerry Vassilatos in his recent book, ³Secrets of
Cold War Technology² without which Lindemann could not have solved the enigma of
Gray¹s Radiant circuit design. This lecture delivered the goods. The secret of 
Tesla¹s Radiant Energy has finally been revealed in manifold detail and only 
awaits the industry of those who care to study and understand it. Part1 presents
a general overview of Tesla¹s discovery and the political, intrigues that led to
its subsequent suppression. Part 2 will detail the nuts and bolts of how Tesla 
produced Radiant Energy with block diagrams, schematics, and drawings from 
Tesla¹s original patents to illustrate all of the necessary elements and 
parameters required. Additional details on Gray¹s modern adaptation of Tesla¹s 
Radiant circuitry and a brief look at Eric Dollard, the only man to successfully
recreate Tesla¹s Colorado Springs Magnifying transmitter and reproduce the pure 
steaming white rays of Radiant energy in 1986 exactly as described by Tesla in 
his Colorado journals.  Ken Adachi]

Of all the great inventions and discoveries of Nikola Tesla, nothing stood out 
with greater potential benefit to the whole of humanity than his discovery of 
Radiant Energy in 1889. The series of observations that led to the discovery of 
Radiant energy initially grew out of experiments that Tesla had conducted in an 
attempt to duplicate the results that Heinrich Hertz had claimed to achieve in 
affirming the existence of electromagnetic waves, the discovery of which Hertz 
announced in 1887. While replicating Hertz¹s experiments, Tesla experimented 
with violently abrupt DC electrical discharges and discovered a new force in the
process. Only after conducting exhaustive experimental trials for the next three
years, did Tesla announce this stupendous discovery in a paper published in 
December, 1892, entitled ³The Dissipation of Electricity². Incredibly, most 
academicians of the day completely missed the mark in understanding the true 
significance of his paper. Noted scientists such as Sir Oliver Lodge, mistakenly
thought that Tesla was referring to high frequency AC electricity in the 
operation of the Tesla Transformer, a huge blunder that remains to this day in 
the misnaming and misinterpretation of the Tesla Coil. The transformer that 
Tesla referred to in the 1892 paper did not operate on magnetic/electric field 
induction created by alternating currents. It operated in an entirely new domain
of physics based on abrupt discharges of electrostatic potentials and the 
subsequent release of kinetic Radiant Energy from the omnipresent ether. Tesla 
was now operating under entirely new rules which he referred to as ³dynamic² 
electro-static forces and had, by now, completely abandoned any further interest
in the AC waveform. The genesis of the Lodge misunderstanding, however, began a 
few years earlier with the publication of certainmathematical formulas by a 
brilliant Scotsman named James Clerk Maxwell.

Maxwell¹s Equations

Using mathematical models, James Clerk Maxwell had earlier suggested that two 
different types of electrical disturbances could possibly exist in Nature. One 
type was a longitudinal electric wave which required alternating concentrations 
of densified and rarefied pulsations of electrostatic fields that moved along a 
single vector (today, we refer to these as standing waves or scalar waves). 
Maxwell ultimately rejected this idea because he was convinced that this type of
wave propagation was impossible to achieve, but his assumption was erroneous and
would later portend formidable consequences for Tesla and the world at large.

Maxwell¹s second wave postulation was that of a transverse electromagnetic wave 
that exhibited a rapid alternation of electric fields along a fixed axis that 
radiated away from its point of origin at the speed of light and was detectable 
at great distances. Maxwell had more faith in the existence of this type of wave
and encouraged experimenters to look in this direction. It was the discovery of 
this type of wave that Hertz had laid claim to, but Tesla was meticulous and 
fastidious in replicating Hertz¹s experimental parameters and he could not 
obtain the results claimed by Hertz.

Tesla discovered a fundamental flaw in Hertz¹s experiment: Hertz had failed to 
take into account he presence of air in his experiments. Hertz had mistakenly 
identified electrostatic inductions or electrified shockwaves as true 
electromagnetic waves. Tesla was saddened to bring this news to the 
distinguished academician, but felt scientific honesty was paramount if progress
was to be achieved. Tesla visited Hertz in Germany and personally demonstrated 
the experimental error to him. Hertz agreed with Tesla and had planned to 
withdraw his claim, but reputations, political agendas, national pride, and 
above all, powerful financial interests, intervened in that decision and set the
stage for a major rift in the Œaccepted¹ theories that soon became transformed 
into the fundamental ³laws² of the electric sciences that have held sway in 
industry and the halls of academia to the present day.

Tesla¹s introduction to the phenomena of Radiant Energy began with early 
observations by linesmen working for Thomas Edison, Tesla¹s former employer

DC Anomalies

Before Tesla¹s invention of the Polyphase AC generator became the industry 
standard and overtook Thomas Edison¹s use of DC generators, the DC electrical 
system was the only system available to deliver electricity to America¹s homes 
and factories. Due to the resistance offered by long transmission lines, Edison 
had to produce very high DC voltages from his generators in order to deliver 
enough voltage and current to its final destination. He also had to provide 
additional Œpumping¹ stations along the way to boost the sagging voltage which 
dwindled from line losses. A curious anomaly occurred in the very first instant 
of throwing the power switch at the generating station: Purple/blue colored 
spikes radiated in all directions along the axis of the power lines for just a 
moment. In addition, a stinging, ray-like shocking sensation was felt by those 
who stood near the transmission lines. In some cases, when very large DC 
voltages surged from the generators, the ³stinging² sensation was so great that 
occasionally a blue spike jumped from the line and grounded itself through a 
workman, killing him in the process.

Tesla realized almost immediately that electrons were not responsible for such a
phenomena because The blue spike phenomena ceased as soon as the current stated 
flowing in the lines. Something else was happening just before the electrons had
a chance to move along the wire. At the time, no one seemed to be very 
interested in discovering why these dramatic elevations in static electrical 
potential were taking place, but rather, engineering design efforts were focused
on eliminating and quenching this strange anomaly which was considered by 
everyone to be a nuisance-except Tesla. Tesla viewed it as a powerful, yet 
unknown form of energy which needed to be understood and harnessed if possible. 
The phenomena only exhibited itself in the first moment of switch closure, 
before the electrons could begin moving. There seemed to be a ³bunching² or  
³choking² effect at play, but only briefly. Once the electrons began their 
movement within the wire, all would return to normal. What was this strange 
energy that was trying to liberate itself so forcefully at the moment of switch 
closure? .

Tesla, Genius Out of Time

In the later quarter of the 19th century, Tesla was alone in his opposition to 
the fundamental views of the nature of electrical forces as described by three 
of the biggest names in electric science: James Clerk Maxwell, Herman Von 
Helmholtz, and Heinrich Hertz. Tesla possessed a broader vision of the cosmos 
because his keen sense of awareness and especially his natural intuitive 
insights gave him a deeper understanding of the role that the ether (or aether) 
played in the  manifestations of all

electrical phenomena while his contemporaries focused their attention 
exclusively on the electromagnetic component (assuming that no other component 
could be involved). This lack of etheric insight by his contemporaries (with the
exception of Sir William Crookes)  and the heated controversy that the mere 
mention of the ether had engendered was to cause Tesla ridicule and sarcasm from
men of inferior intellect for decades. The ether controversy largely dissipated 
in the academic arena after the publication of Eienstein¹s Theory of Relativity 
(1905) and the Michaelson-Morley Experiment which essentially declared that the 
ether Œtheory¹ was dead, but Tesla¹s insights and deductions concerning the role
of the ether were correct all along.

The ether existed then and it exists now, despite the lock step denials by 
mainstream science, past or present. Rudolf Steiner, another man of genius, 
affirmed that the ether was composed of four fractions which he described as 1) 
the Light Ether, 2) the Warmth Ether, 3) the Chemical Ether, and 4) the Life 
Ether, a combination of the first three. Tesla¹s New York and Colorado 
experiments confirmed for him that Radiant energy was bound up within the 
elusive ether, but could be made manifest by the creation of an abrupt 
disruption in the equilibrium of the ether fractions using one way, high 
magnitude pulses of short duration.

This was the key that unlocked Radiant Energy.
³See the excitement coming!²

These were the words that Tesla used at the end of his pivotal 1892 December 
lecture, ³The Dissipation of Electricity². He was brimming over with buoyancy 
and optimism for the future  In the 1890's, Tesla conducted a large number of 
experiments which confirmed his theory and refined his understanding of the 
special conditions required for Radiant energy to express itself. He later 
expanded his New York work with the large scale experimental trials conducted at
Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1899.

Tesla, the humanitarian, wanted more than anything to share this enormous 
discovery with his fellow man. Tesla spoke of practical applications of radiant 
energy that were so wide reaching that they could have created a profound and 
immense leap into the future for all of mankind in  practically every sector of 
daily life:

Unlimited electricity could be made available anywhere and at any time, by 
merely pushing a rod into the ground and turning on the electrical appliance. 
Homes, farms, offices, factories, villages, libraries, museums, street lights, 
etc., could have all their lighting needs met by merely hanging ordinary light 
bulbs or fluorescent tubes anywhere desired- without the need for wiring -and 
produce brilliant white light 24 hours a day. Motor energy for any imagined use 
such as  industrial applications, transportation, tractors, trucks, trains, 
boats, automobiles, air ships or planes could be powered freely-anywhere on the 
planet from a single Magnifying Transmitter. This new form of energy even had 
the ability to elevate human consciousness to levels of vastly improved 
comprehension and mental clarity. Undreamed of therapeutic applications to 
improve human health and to eliminate disease conditions could have been 
achieved fully 100 years ago had Tesla been allowed to complete his commercial 
development of Radiant Energy. But powerful barons of industry, chiefly in the 
person of John Pierpont Morgan, colluded to deny him the financial backing he 
needed and in doing so, effectively denied mankind one of Nature¹s most abundant
and inexhaustible gifts of free energy.

The Magnifying Transmitter

The closest Tesla came to a world wide industrial application of his Radiant 
Energy dream was the construction of his huge Magnifying Transmitter at 
Shoreham, Long Island, a site which he named Wardenclyffe. Following his return 
to New York City from Colorado Springs in 1899, Tesla was jubilant and full of 
enthusiasm to implement his plan for the commercial application of Radiant 
energy. He turned to JP Morgan for a substantial portion of the funding to 
finance the huge project at Wardenclyffe.

Morgan was chiefly concerned with turning a profit from overseas radio 
transmissions since Marconi was fast locking up the market and Morgan, ever the 
aggressor, wanted a share of the market. When Tesla told him that the 
transmitter could transmit ³intelligence² to the world, Morgan assumed that he 
meant ordinary radio communications, but Tesla was not referring to ordinary 
radio transmissions. He was talking about something much bigger, but avoided 
revealing all to Morgan during this early phase of the Wardenclyffe project. 
Some considerable time later, Tesla eventually felt compelled  to tell Morgan 
the larger possibilities offered by the Magnifying Transmitter when he needed 
more funding to complete the project. Tesla thought that Morgan would be 
overwhelmed by his expanded explanation of the true capacities of the 
transmitter and would be anxious to complete the work, but Tesla¹s assumption 
had backfired and Morgan refused to lay out any more money for the transmitter. 
Sadly, the enormous benefits that could have been made available to society by 
Tesla¹s Magnifying Transmitter project, died then and there.

Morgan & Westinghouse

Morgan had already orchestrated circumstances in Tesla¹s life in order to force 
Tesla to be dependent on him for financial backing. During an earlier period, 
when Tesla himself had millions from his Polyphase AC generator royalty payments
and other earnings, Morgan wanted to woo Tesla with a deal that effectively gave
Morgan majority control over his patent rights and projects, but Tesla turned 
him down, telling Morgan that he had enough money of his own to fund his 
projects.  While returning to his hotel from that very meeting with Morgan, 
however, Tesla was told that his laboratory had been burned to the ground. It 
represented a tremendous loss to Tesla and it shook him deeply. Everyone, of 
course, felt convinced that Morgan was behind the arson. In order to save face, 
Morgan was embarrassed by Tesla into putting up the money to pay for the 
rebuilding of a new lab as an act of ³philanthropy². From that time forward, 
however, other financial backers were not to be found. Morgan was powerful 
enough to black list Tesla among the Eastern Establishment elites that 
previously had hobnobbed and feted with Tesla as if he was one of their own. 
Black listing and ostracization by officialdom and financiers lifted somewhat 
after Morgan¹s death, but generally continued to haunt Tesla for the rest of his

Before the turn of the century, Tesla also willingly gave up millions, perhaps 
billions, in royalty earnings to George Westinghouse in an unprecedented act of 
friendship. Westinghouse had believed in the superiority of Tesla¹s AC system 
and provided the money to build Tesla¹s big AC  generators at Niagra Falls, NY. 
Tesla was paid millions up front for his patents, but was also due to receive 
royalty earnings for every kilowatt of power produced. When Westinghouse ran 
into financial difficulties at a later date, Tesla tore up his royalty contract 
in order to save Westinghouse from financial ruin. Had he not done that, Tesla 
would have had enough money from royalties to keep him ensconced in great wealth
for the rest of his life.

The story is frequently told that when Morgan found out from Tesla that the true
purpose of the Wardenclyffe transmitter was to provide free electricity to the 
world, he abruptly pulled the funding. That¹s not completely accurate. The 
economic conditions were recessionary at the time and the stock market had taken
a considerable dip that year. Morgan wasn¹t interested in risking any more 
capital in perilous times on a project he couldn¹t fully fathom and wasn¹t 
completely convinced of. Tesla held land ownership of the Wardenclyffe site and 
tower, but no further work was done after 1910. In 1914, Tesla was deeply in 
debt and signed over the deed of Wardenclyffe Station to pay off years of back 
rent due to the owners of the New Yorker Hotel where he was living (he occupied 
two penthouse suites in the hotel). In 1917, the hotel owners had the tower 
demolished and its parts sold for salvage. Despite the loss of Wardenclyffe, 
Tesla continued to refine his understanding of Radiant Energy and miniaturize 
the equipment needed to produce it. He eventually was able to reduce the 
equipment down to the size of a suit case.
