Yes it is amazing that there are still people for whom thermodynamics and basic physics is a mystery.

Just another perpetual motion machine scam. Nothing to see here folks, keep movimg on....


The Three Laws of Thermodynamics: (in laymen's terms)

1. You can't win,

2. You can't even break even.

3. You can't quit the game.

This is along the lines of charging your batteries by plugging the battery charger into the inverter

With superconductors you can get pretty close on #2.
These three rules explain why all the goofy "imitate a submarine or a cruise ship" ideas never prove out, the more steps between the engine and the prop the more energy gets wasted along the way.

As soon as I read the opening post I sent Ando an email attachment privately (included here) describing what this was about.

https://www.lockhaven.edu/~dsimanek/museum/test-pm.htm
Specific to this one, start at #4

Sometimes these schemes can be pretty convincing. Many years ago a good friend contacted me for an assessment of something similar. This friend was an accomplished man: WW2 B-17 pilot in Europe, Ivy League college degree (Dartmouth), developed his own shopping center in Southern California from a dirt lot and an all around great guy. An opportunist approached him with such a scheme looking for investors. Thank goodness my friend reached out, in doing so he saved himself a lot of cash and heartache.

A similar worm hole that's fun to look into is cold fusion. The two chemists that came up with cold fusion had the chemistry right but didn't know nuclear physics! Perhaps with the right catalyst to get the deuterium to combine, they could have something!

My daddy used to say often: "if you're so smart, why ain't you rich?"

My neighbor that lives in a tiny cabin all by himself has a perpetual energy device very similar. A circular logic does not always reveal linear results.
This idea has so much loss from 90-degrees out-of-phase it should catch fire. Fun to watch a flim flam man do his worst though.

One thing that raises a red flag for me is when someone claims that an amazing capability is out there, but some big business doesn't want us to know about it because they'd lose money. If the capability was really that amazing, the big companies would market it and cash in. Think about all the companies making billions on low-tech commodity products: water, paper, chickens. Ease of production is not a barrier to big profits.
