Myth #10) The FBI has Nikola Tesla’s plans for a “death ray”!
If you don’t know the name, Nikola Tesla was a prolific inventor and gifted physicist and engineer—most known for developing the basis for AC power—who was born in Croatia in 1856 and settled in the U.S. in 1884. When Tesla died in New York in January 1943, his papers—which were thought to include plans for a particle beam weapon, dubbed a “death ray” by the press—were temporarily seized by the Department of Justice Alien Property Custodian Office (“alien” in this case means “foreigner,” although Tesla was a U.S. citizen). Despite longstanding reports and rumors, the FBI was not involved in searching Tesla’s effects, and it never had possession of his papers or any microfilm that may have been made of those papers. Since 1943, we have told a consistent story to all who have asked. Reports to the contrary appear to be based on an initial confusion of FBI agents with other government officials—especially Alien Property Office personnel. These rumors have long been repeated in biographies and articles on Tesla without double-checking the facts as reported in our files.
Obviously, we’ll never know the truth but in any case, that is the official story. They at least do point out an agency that did seize papers and that is the Department of Justice Alien Property Custodian Office. They say “temporarily” seized it, so who did they release it to? It has been thought it was the U.S. Navy.
Here are two large PDF’s released by the FBI that relate to Nikola Tesla. Quite a bit is blacked out – no surprise – and they’re probably more valuable as historical artifacts rather than treasure troves of technical data. Here they are: http://vault.fbi.gov/nikola-tesla

For years, the “Lithium Ion” battery has dominated the market whenever high capacity, small size and low weight were application requirements. That means, they have been used exclusively in cell phones, Tablet computers, Laptops, and most of the new high capacity portable tools. But that is not all. They are also used in the newer Hybrid electric automobiles and even the latest transcontinental commercial airliners, like the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
Although these batteries have a very high energy density for their size and weight, they can also be dangerous if they are not charged properly. You may recall some of the stories in the last few years about laptop computers bursting into flames, and even the whole fleet of 787 airliners being grounded because of battery fires. So, behind the scenes, the battery industry has been trying to develop a battery that has all of the benefits of Lithium Ion batteries, but none of the dangers.
Over the last two years, a new type of Lithium battery has been quietly showing up on the market. In the last 6 months, this battery has started becoming available in almost all sizes and for almost all applications. This battery is called the Lithium Iron Phosphate battery, and is referred to as the LiFePO4 for short.
This new kid on the block, has a slightly lower energy density than the typical “Lithium Ion” batteries (about 14% less), but they are much safer to use than either Lithium Ion or even the standard Lead Acid batteries are. The cost of the LiFePO4 batteries are still fairly high, but the prices are coming down pretty fast at this point.
Here’s a picture of a Lead Acid battery used to start a car next to its equivalent battery in the LiFePO4 chemistry. You can see from this that the battery is about half the size and only one fifth the weight. Now THAT is a better battery!
But the best thing about these batteries is their safety. The LiFePO4 battery doesn’t have a liquid electrolyte, so it can’t leak or boil out to make a mess, and you never need to add water. It can be charged quickly without harming the battery, so it won’t over-heat. And best of all, there is NO FIRE DANGER like with the more common types of Lithium Ion batteries.
In fact, you may have already been using these LiFePO4 batteries and didn’t even know it. Many of the solar yard lights sold in the last year actually use these batteries. They get charged throughout the day and when it gets dark, the light comes on and runs the light until the battery goes completely dead! In the morning, the process starts over. And, this is done day after day after day for months and the battery still seems to be working fine.
That is one of the biggest benefits of these new LiFePO4 batteries – they can take a serious beating and still come back over and over! There isn’t another type of battery out there that can take this kind of treatment. Any other battery, such as a sealed lead acid type, would be on its death bed if it took that kind of abuse.
The LiFePO4 batteries also have a much higher life cycle rating than lead acids or the common “Lithium Ion” batteries. That means you can charge and discharge them many more times.
The LiFePO4 batteries are also a constant voltage battery. For example, with a lead acid battery, as you power a load, the voltage goes down little by little until it takes a nose dive. With the LiFePO4, you pretty much get the full voltage as you’re powering a load with them for nearly the entire time and then suddenly, they drop off a cliff. This is much more desirable because you get full power for most of the capacity of the battery, which you won’t get with lead acid batteries.
If you were in an emergency situation and needed a power supply for some light, a radio, a mobile phone charger, etc… what kind of battery would you want? There definitely is no comparison – the only kind of battery to have on hand in an emergency situation is a LiFePO4, no contest.
As you may have heard, Tesla Motors is creating a $5 Billion factory to mass produce “Lithium Ion” battery banks in order to make the mass production of electric cars a reality. The goal is to have a 200 miles range for the battery bank, which will actually be made by Panasonic. If they produced a Lithium Iron Phosphate battery as an option, the cars would have a 172 mile range, but the batteries would last much longer and they would be environmentally friendly.
Also, this could drastically reduce the cost of Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries, which would revolutionize the entire battery industry, not just for automobile applications, but also for back up battery banks in solar applications as well.
For quite a while now, John Bedini, a world-renown expert in battery charging technologies has manufactured the most effective chargers and rejuvenators for lead acid batteries commercially available to the public. These chargers have been shown to be able to bring about 80% of the batteries doomed for the dump back to many more years of useful service.
Unfortunately, these charging and rejuvenation technologies were never compatible with the common “Lithium Ion” batteries, primarily because of the problems in the battery itself.
Fortunately, John Bedini has created a small line of solar charge controllers made specifically for the new LiFePO4 batteries. That means that the ultimate in small-scale emergency solar systems are now available, which completely surpass any other similar sized solar energy system.
This new line of chargers is part of Tesla Chargers solar charge controller line known as the Tesla Solar Tracker 5’s. The LiFePO4 solar charge controllers are rated for 12 volt 3 amp and 12 volt 7.5 amp solar arrays. That is roughly 45 watts and 110 watts of solar panels respectively.

48 HOURS UNTIL THE RELEASE OF JIM MURRAY & PAUL BABCOCK’S PRESENTATION FROM THE ENERGY CONFERENCE!
Beginning in two days, the 2014 Conference Film Series will start being released. The first presentation will be the monumental presentation by Jim Murray and Paul Babcock about Jim’s amazing SERPS device. SERPS stands for Switch Energy Resonant Power Supply and is the ultimate in methods for using, storing, and returning electricity to its source!
In the first hour, Jim Murray shows the various machines he built and tested over the last 35 years that lead to the understanding of how to build the SERPS device. In the second hour, Paul Babcock explains the theoretical operations of the SERPS system showing how it borrows, uses, and returns electrical power to the source.
The presentation then switches to a clip in the exhibit room where the working model was running and demonstrating 4790% MORE WORK THAN IS SUPPLIED IN NET ENERGY FROM THE POWER SUPPLY – THAT IS A COP OF 47.9!!! It ends with a Q&A by Paul back in the meeting room. A separate PDF file of all of the slides shown in the Power Point Presentation will be included.
This is a panel discussion of 7 speakers at the 2014 Energy Science & Technology Conference. All 10 were invited but three were not at the table. Speakers in this video, which is moderated by Jeane Manning, author of Breakthrough Power include: Mark McKay, John Polakowski, Eric Dollard, Aaron Murakami, Jim Murray, Paul Babcock and Peter Lindemann.
We’ve all been running in high gear preparing for the conference, which is only 10 days away! If you want to come see the historical presentations, register now as there are only 25 seats left and they’re going quick. http://energyscienceconference.com
Peter will be giving a sneak peak demonstration at the conference of the machine that will be the basis for the material in the 3rd Bedini book – Bedini SG –
The Complete Advanced Handbook, which focuses on converting mechanical work to electrical energy.
There will be more variations presented in the book and the video presentation will be part of the book package, which should be available no later than August.
There are various ways to rotate a lever in an elliptical orbit like the input lever of the Skinner Gravity Power Machine. Here is a method that is very simple and might just make it easier for people to replicate the machine – you can see the bicycle wheel demo towards the end that demonstrates the principle: http://emediapress.com/2014/06/17/murakami-elliptical-drive/
A simplified method that I came up with is by using a tilted wheel with a connection offset from center. Although from it’s own plane, it is a full circle, on the horizontal plane, it will trace an ellipse.
Here are some various comments I made about this Skinner Machine:
Sun, Earth, Moon
The relationship of the upper weight to the lower weight shaft is like the MOON and EARTH. The Earth rotates on its own axis while the Moon does not. However, as the Earth moves through space once around its axis of rotation around the SUN (lever), the moon has made one rotation. In a year is a day and the Earth goes around the Sun one time per day, the Moon has spun 360 degrees in that one day while all the time showing it’s same side to the Earth.
If you took a string with a weight on the end, held it out and turned in a circle, the string would stretch out and the weight would go out and be held by the string. As you turned around in circles on your own axis, the same side of the weight is facing you so to you it is not rotatig on its own axis, however, with each one rotation you make on your own axis, the weight (moon) has indeed revolved 360 degrees in space.
I don’t want to get too much into all of that right now, but something to think about. The whole Skinner mechanism is like the Sun, Earth and Moon where it takes one day for the Earth to revolve around the Sun and the Moon always stays in the same position relative to the Earth and Sun like the 3 points of a right angle triangle and the hypotenuse is from the Sun to Moon and the right angle is at the Earth..
Not a perfect analogy but the principles are all there.
The first force in the Skinner machine is the electric motor, which is mechanical work to turn pulleys by belts to move the mechanism that rotates the input lever in an elliptical motion. The whole machine has multiple levels of leveraging leverage so to speak.
That motor doesn’t need to supply very much work to turn the top of the lever around in an elliptical way because the pivot is way down at the bottom of that level – with let’s say 90% of the length of the lever above the pivot, very little is needed because of the mechanical advantage of the length of the lever.
“Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.” – Archimedes quotes (Mathematician and inventor of ancient Greece, 280-211bc)
That is probably one of a hundred variations of that quote but that’s the point.
The bottom of that “input lever” connected to the translation coupler with coupler freely spinning around it serves as the center axis of rotation for BOTH the upper weight fixed to that coupler plate and the upper part of the lower shaft connected the the coupler plate, which also spins freely from the coupler plate. They both rotate in perfect circles around the bottom of the input lever. But they of course go in an elliptical orbit because that center of axis (bottom part of input lever) for both the upper weight upper part of the lower shaft is moving in the same ellipse as the upper part of the input lever, but just inverse but in the same direction of rotation.
The force imparted by the bottom of the lever to move that part of the translation coupler causes a reaction in the upper weight to whip around in the same direction that the input lever is going – like I showed in the graph paper demo (coupler plate demo – not the upper input mechanism demo). That reaction is possible because of the specific placement of the input lever on the plate in relation to the upper weight placement and lower shaft placement on the plate as well. If the upper weight was on the other side or if the lever was turned in the opposite direction, you lose the effect and try to run the machine backwards.
So the force that gets the upper weight to swing around is directly from the input lever. Once it gets going, it obviously has momentum and when up to speed, the input lever only has to make up for the loss on each rotation, which is almost nothing with no load and still only a small percentage under load.
As the upper weight moves together with the small input of the lever just to maintain that momentum, the lower shaft’s upper part follows it and the center of gravity for the lower weight is constantly moved so it has to constantly fall to the new center of gravity, which it can’t catch up to.
Now look at the whole vertical drive as one unit. The lower shaft and weight are held slightly off center by being held in the translation coupler and that translation coupler is held in place by being connected to the bottom of the input lever. If the input lever is perfectly vertical, it will be perfectly over the bottom part of the lower shaft where the output is. However, although they are in alignment when centered, the lower weight is not because it is off center and an angle dictated by the lower shafts upper connection distance from the lever rod.
If no force was given by the input lever, no matter how small is being input to it at the very top, the whole machine would slow down so it absolutely contributes it’s force to whip the upper weight, which whips the lower shaft around.
Going back to looking at the whole vertical drive assembly, that lower weight is is only a few inches from being balanced…not balanced by the lower shaft being vertical of course, but by having the lower weight angled back instead of tipping forward.
Of course tipping it back would just cause it to freespin around until it is on the incline of the shaft, but we’re looking at where is the center of gravity for the mass of the lower weight and shaft and that is what is important. seeing that they are close to being balanced, it doesn’t take much force to rotate it with this mechanism. Once it is up to speed, the mass is spinning around, which is not locked to the shaft where it is connected to the translation coupler, but it is locked to the part of the shaft that goes out the bottom to pull work from.
That mass spinning around will create some serious torque and it doesn’t take much to get that mass spinning. The bigger the mass, the slower it has to go to produce the same amount of torque. If we had a lower weight the size of a school bus, it could go so slow that at only a couple rotations per minute but would snap a crowbar like a toothpick.
Once the system is synchronized and everything is spinning away, all the momentum of the lower weight and upper weight relieve the input requirement on the input lever so only the loss has to be made up.
Input lever force to kick translation coupler > translation coupler gets this force and helps to kick the upper weight around > that helps to move the shaft to move the lower weight around.
I do want to comment on some comments I’ve seen. Some say it is not gravity, it is the centrifugal force of the lower weight – some are saying it is only gravity, etc… it is all of them combined.
The weight spinning has some serious forces but gravitational potential energy is constantly being turned into rotational mechanical work at the lower weight so it is a combination of both in addition to the input from the input lever. If gravity does not contribute, you then have a closed equilibrium system that is solely reliant on the input to the lever for it’s source potential and it would have no gain.
WHEN ASKED IF AN ELLIPTICAL ORBIT WAS NECESSARY
Yes – it needs to be elliptical. I have worked out multiple ways to cause the input lever to be moved in an ellipse at the top but keep coming back to Skinner’s method as being the best.
In a circular orbit, you get no real reversal or reaction.
With an elliptical orbit, you get a strong one every 180 degrees – at each end of the length – but instead of that reactive power bucking the system, it actually propels it forward.
This machine is a mechanical version of Jim Murray’s SERPS machine in principle but it applies to every machine that takes a reaction and uses it to continue to produce work in the forward direction instead of resisting the production of work.
Newton’s 3rd law of motion is always misunderstood and claimed to be an equal and opposite reaction when in reality, the truth is that the forces are divided between two reference points.
For anyone that isn’t caught up in dogmatic myths, there is no equal and opposite reaction in both elliptical mechanism in the machine thereby violating Newton’s 3rd law of motion the way it is commonly taught because if it applied, each half cycle of the ellipse would buck against the forward motion but it doesn’t – it assist the machine in the forward direction.
It is mechanical jujitsu – using a force that could be in opposition to you but you allow for a method to let it help the progress continue in its same direction. The SERPS machine is electrical jujitsu.
This is the same in the Ramos machine and the Veljko machine as well as mechanical amplifiers designed by Peter Lindemann and some that I’ve even come up with myself. It is a universal principle that applies to EVERY mechanical machine that turns reactive power into positive work in positive time.
So yes, absolutely, it needs to be an elliptical path as a circle will only cause equilibrium in the machine and that is what we want to stay far away from.
This video is the FULL VERSION of all my 3 videos put together in one place. It shows the reverse engineered details of William Frank Skinner’s 1939 Gravity Power Machine. Watch the video from 1939 to see the original here: http://emediapress.com/2014/05/30/1200-gravity-power/ to see what this video is about.
We have finally updated our homepage, which is much easier to navigate. It is on a WordPress system and we (Peter Lindemann & Aaron Murakami) will be able to easily put in some blog posts and refer you to them instead of making these newsletters so long. For now, we’re just testing out re-posting some interesting news items and will soon be putting in some of our own articles.
“The research team at UOW’s Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) have developed a light-assisted catalyst that requires less energy input to activate water oxidation, which is the first step in splitting water to produce hydrogen fuel.”
By next Tuesday, we’re going to be releasing a free solar ebook that exposes a lot of the bad practices commonly done in the solar industry. This includes the truth about why MPPT charge controllers will kill your batteries, the best solar panels to use if you ever want to charge your batteries under a cloudy sky, a trick about wiring batteries to extend their life drastically and more…
This free ebook is worth hundreds if not thousands because that is what you can save over the years if you actually apply the information. If there is something that can be done wrong with popular solar power methods, it is! That’s an unfortunate but true fact so make sure you get a copy as soon as we release it because it may only be free for a limited time!
We’re going to show you a video soon and it will blow your mind! Many of you may be hearing about a global effort to make some Tesla Generator and there is a lot of hype included. To date, there has been ZERO results showing that there is less coming from the power source than the machine is creating.
There are only 82 seats left and when they’re gone, they’re gone! The conference is in 8 weeks so register now because yet again, this is the only conference that you can come to and actually see real “overunity” technology.
Last year, John Bedini showed his famous Bedini SSG, but with a modification. As the output battery charged up, SO THE THE INPUT BATTERY! The wheel was just spinning away and BOTH batteries were charged. That is what you get to see at the Energy Science & Technology Conferences.
