Since 1977, the entire field of thermodynamics was upgraded with Ilya Prigogine’s Nobel Prize winning work to include Open System Thermodynamics. In a nutshell, it means that any system that is open with the environment can output more work than the operator has to supply.
Take note that contrary to the conventionally trained academic who is always quick to point out that there can’t be more output than input is making a false argument because that is not what is actually claimed by the inventors of legitimate free energy technologies.
More output than what the operator has to supply is not the same thing as claiming more output than was is going into the system. Obviously, this means there is other input from elsewhere that is not provided by the operator of the system.
It is often said that Prigogine’s work extended thermodynamics to include open systems, but the reality is that it did not extend thermodynamics, it corrected it. The reason for this is very simple – there is no such thing as a closed system and every single system is open.
The deeper reality is that every system is open – some are designed to make use of external input that is separate from the operator’s input and some are designed to only use the operator’s input.
If you have a flashlight and the battery has 10 units of potential energy to light the bulb, when the flashlight is on, minus losses, there will only be 10 units of light or less depending on efficiency. Efficiency is the ratio if TOTAL input vs INTENDED output. This is what is meant by a closed system because it does not utilize free environmental input such as gravity, heat, light, wind, water, etc…
If you take this flashlight and stick it deep into a snow bank that is freezing, the battery will interact with this cold environmental temperature and it will not power the light as long. That is because it is not a closed system after all and easily interacts with the environment outside of itself. If it was a closed system, the battery would continue to power the light irrespective of the environmental temperature that the flashlight is operating in.
Let’s look at an example of a child flying a kite. If the child inputs 10 units of energy and the wind inputs 90 parts energy for a certain period of time, that is 100 parts of energy total input. If 70% of all that input is lost in bad kite design, wind friction on the kite, etc… that means that only 30 units of energy were actual kite flying work accomplished. 100 parts of energy were input and 30 units of INTENDED work were done – that equals 30% efficiency.
That means 30 units of intended work were accomplished but the child only had to input 10 units of work. That is a 300% net GAIN in energy compared to what the operator had to pay for. The ratio of OPERATOR input compared to INTENDED work done is COP or Coefficient of Performance. In this case, the COP is 3.0. COP does not include free environmental input and this is how every heat pump is rated for example.
The kite flying example is a perfectly legitimate free energy system where the operator of the system got way more out of the system than what he had to put in. Again, notice that this is NOT more output than input, but more output than the operator had to contribute – meaning there is indeed extra free environmental input from somewhere.
Watch this excerpt from Peter Lindemann’s Open System Thermodynamics presentation for deeper elaboration on this concept. The next time a skeptic tells you that there can’t be more output than input and that anything like that would violate the laws of thermodynamics, please point them to this post and video because the fact is that they are making an illegitimate argument about something that was never claimed by those who have real free energy technologies.

Peter Lindemann has announced his retirement from the field of Free Energy. He was a board member of the legendary Borderland Sciences Research Foundation, has authored and produced many books and presentation on a wide range of alternative energy and science topics, and was co-founder of both A & P Electronic Media and the Energy Science and Technology Conference originally called the Bedini-Lindemann Science & Technology Conference.
Peter is one of a handful of friends and mentors that have been very instrumental in my own knowledge and understanding of this field and for about 7 years, we build A & P Electronic Media together, which many consider to be the most important and definitive library of material on free energy, which is explained by open system thermodynamics.
Please read Peter’s retirement announcement as this marks a turning point for all of us who have been following this field for years. Peter Lindemann is truly one of the last pioneers of the modern-day Tesla Science & Free Energy movement and we wish him well on his new path!
This will be my last, planned post to this forum, or any other public forum. As of December 31, 2016, I am announcing my formal retirement from the field of “advanced alternative energy” research and any public role that I may have played over the last 20 years. After this date, I have no more plans to speak at any future conferences or publish any other books or lectures concerning this subject matter. My website at Free Energy will remain available as a teaching tool for the foreseeable future, but may not be up-dated very much from this point on.
In a few months, I’ll be 66 years old. I have been involved in this field for 43 years, ever since 1973, when I first learned of Ed Gray’s remarkable electric engine that kept its own batteries charged. In that time, I have had the astonishing privilege of studying under, becoming friends with, and making significant contributions to the work of five extraordinary gentlemen: Bruce E. DePalma, Robert G. Adams, Trevor James Constable, David R. Squires, and John C. Bedini.
Each of these men had a towering intellect and an insatiable drive to gift humanity with the fruit of their creative genius. Each of them succeeded because they were skilled experimentalists, honest critics of their own work, and because they were willing to publish significant portions of their scientific discoveries.
And now, each of them has departed this world. Their work here is over. Three of them died just this year. Starting in the 1980s, as a group, we set out to publish enough information about the “free energy” technologies to make sure they could never be suppressed again. At this point, I believe that goal has been accomplished, and therefore my public work in this field is done, as well. This process will continue in the able hands of the younger generation, and so I can bow out now without disturbing that progress.
People close to me know that I have been slowly moving in this direction for a number of years. John’s unexpected death last month gave me an opportunity to reassess my priorities and refocus my attention on other activities that are also very meaningful to me. So, starting in 2017, I plan to give my full attention to these other pursuits.
If you are reading this, Thank You for contributing to my life. If you were a Supporter, thank you for your support. I hope my work has encouraged your own efforts. If you were a Skeptic, thank you for your skepticism. I hope my efforts gave you fresh reasons to question your knowledge base, even as your skepticism gave me fresh reasons to re-examine mine. If you were a Naysayer, thank you for trying to “save me” from a fantasy you were sure I was trapped in. I appreciate your good will and noble intentions, even if I was not always polite about it!
Everyone of you has enriched my experience of being involved in this field in some way. But over the years, my motivations for staying involved have changed tremendously. In the last 43 years, I have experienced being the Novice, the Naysayer, the Skeptic, the Experimenter, the Student, the Discoverer, the Historian, the Author, the Educator, and the Expert! I actually didn’t try to BE any of these things. I just wanted to know the Truth about certain anomalous inventions, and in general, about all the different ways Nature is willing to provide useful energy. So, no matter where you are on this path, I was right where you are now at some point in my evolution.
What I discovered is that Truth is only found in Philosophy and Religion, but NOT in Science. In Science, all we can find are the FACTS, and how those facts have been INTERPRETED and REPORTED throughout history!
Correctly used, Science is a “formal method on inquiry.” Science is not an “intellectual model of reality” or even a “world view.” Attempting to make it function that way is like using “science” as a pair of sunglasses, which can only limit the number of frequencies of reality presented for you to see. Never get trapped in that imaginary place where you believe that “science” can describe all valuable experiences. It cannot weigh or measure by any known metric the importance of your Mother’s Love or the power that can be unleashed by generosity or kindness. Science has a proper place in society, but its role for the real benefit of the Scientist is quite limited. Here, Philosophy is more important.
This is why, up until about 125 years ago, becoming a Natural Philosopher was the highest possible attainment in the field of science. “Physics” started as the study of the physical world, and that was the study of the behavior of Nature. Imitating Nature allowed technology to develop. Understanding WHAT nature was doing, and HOW to mimic that action with “man-made” means, was the beginning of Invention. Ultimately, this lead to a deeper study of WHY Nature did what it did, and this inquiry developed into a Philosophical observation and contemplation of the behavior of the Natural World.
To be a Natural Philosopher was to recognize one’s own embeddedness in the Natural World one was studying, and to participate with the higher Philosophy of Nature as a guide to one’s own behavior and discovery process. This understanding of the origin of discovery is why John and I would always say “the machine is the teacher.” This whole “natural educational process” has been replaced with University Degrees and a “Theoretical Physics” that has become divorced from the need to run a “reality check” on itself. This has left today’s science as an empty shell of what it used to be and what it must once again become in a more enlightened future. Today’s society uses science to serve people up as a commodity in the economy to be exploited, whereas some future society will use science to serve human need and free people’s time for more creative pursuits.
Philosophically, this is what I found. The facts of science are on your WORK BENCH. Your interpretations of these facts are in your MIND, characterized by the accuracy of your observations and by the imperfections in your mental model of reality. The reports of your interpretations are in these FORUMS and other records, a full two steps removed from the facts. This is why if you don’t build and run the experiment yourself, you are left with believing someone else’s interpretations and you cut yourself off from the opportunity to pick up on the trail of discovery left by earlier experimenters. As long as you discipline yourself to never confuse these things, the one from the other, you have begun your own genuine discovery process.
In the end, you must believe in yourself and you must earn your own deepest self-respect through honesty, integrity, and clarity. These aspects are not a part of Science, but they must become a part of each Scientist who aspires to do Science well. If you do this, if you let life integrate you at the core of your being, you will discover your way of finding everything you will ever look for.
I believe in you. Thank you for carrying on where I now leave off.

John and Gary worked their whole professional lives together. Every day, for 42 years, they were both there, working side by side.
Their first joint business venture was Bedini Electronics, started in 1974. This move, to start their own business, became necessary when John was fired from his job for developing an audio amplifier circuit that was better than his employer’s designs.
John took on the role of “resident wizard.” His company title was President, but he was really the Director of Research and Product Development. From that day on, John was freed to let his extraordinary creativity flow. Gary handled logistics. His company title was Vice-President, but really he acted like the CEO, because he handled everything else that it took to build a business around John’s remarkable products.
Their flagship product was the 25/25 dual mono audio amplifier. In 1974, this was the very first high fidelity audio amplifier made with transistors that could compete and out-perform the much more expensive “high end amplifiers” that were still using vacuum tubes at that time. In the exclusive and stogy world of Audio Aficionados, it was believed that the warm glow of a vacuum tube was simply necessary to produce the softer, more dimensional qualities of music that sophisticated listeners demanded. To John, this was nothing more than elitist mysticism. He simply purchased a number of the vacuum tube amplifiers that people raved about and did a full-spectrum analysis of the waveforms it produced. Then, he just built a transistor circuit that emulated those waveforms. In blindfolded listening tests, customers routinely chose the 25/25 over much more expensive brands because they actually liked the sound quality better.
This established the pattern for the rest of their lives. John spent his days at the electronics bench and in the machine shop, constantly researching new ideas, prototyping new products, and overseeing quality control on the current production line. Gary spent his days in the front office, paying bills, staying in contact with suppliers and dealers, creating label artwork, writing product manuals, and overseeing shipping and receiving.
Over the next 20 years, Bedini Electronics produced multiple new models of audio amplifiers and pre-amps for a growing clientele. In its “hay-day,” the Bedini brand of audio equipment was sold in over 100 high-end music stores in North America, in addition to having Dealers in dozens of other countries around the world.
The success of the audio business gave John the resources to pursue a huge range of interests. These included the possibility of self-running electro-mechanical machines, the possibility of healing disease with radio frequency transmissions, the possibility of transmitting energy through or receiving energy from the Earth itself, and dozens of other ideas that modern science still gives little credence to. For John, the possibilities were a challenge, an opportunity to discover something new. He dove into these pursuits with a standard of self-honesty and single-minded thoroughness that most researchers in the fields of science have never imagined or held themselves to.
Historic figures that inspired these explorations included Nathan Stubblefield, Nikola Tesla, Albert Abrams, Royal Rife, Raymond Kromrey and many others. Early and influential contemporaries that joined John in these quests included Ron Cole, a brilliant electronics engineer who worked for a local television station in Los Angeles, and Tom Bearden, a retired Lt. Colonel from the US Army, whose collaboration and friendship spanned the rest of John’s life.
Gary watched in wonder at John’s impossibly wide range of activities. Personally, Gary didn’t share John’s passions or aptitudes for these scientific pursuits, but every time something actually grew out of these explorations, Gary was there handling all of the support activities in the background. Gary was always on the lookout for the business opportunities to emerge from John’s research activities. And emerge they did.
By 1989, John had spent a great deal of time and money on research into the work of Royal Rife, actually being in possession of Rife’s Universal Microscope for a time, as well as various iterations of self-running energy machines, many based on ideas from Raymond Kromrey, himself, and his friend Ron Cole. While very advanced technical successes were achieved during this period, none of these activities lead to new business opportunities.
The first big break since the success of the Bedini amplifiers was John’s development of BASE, in 1989. BASE is an acronym which stands for the Bedini Audio Spatial Environments. It is a holographic, 3-dimensional sound processing method that could place sound sources anywhere in your mind’s auditory sense of the environment. The effects of this way of processing recorded or live music vastly surpasses anything that so-called “surround sound systems” can produce today. The process could even be applied to recorded music broadcast on stereo FM stations, with 3-dimensional music magically appearing in people’s homes and vehicles within the broadcast range. The technical achievement was stunning, and absolutely original!
A new company was formed around this technology, named GAMA, and millions of dollars were raised. Patents were filed and issued, but unscrupulous business partners siphoned away the money and released the technology to various recording studios without any licensing agreements. This treachery compromised the Intellectual Property rights of the company, so its stock value collapsed shortly after it skyrocketed. A handful of investors became multi-millionaires, but John and Gary were prevented from selling any of their stock when the company looked viable, so they came out of the venture penniless. John did manage to prevent anyone from back-engineering the technology, by keeping certain methods proprietary, but a number of people did try to steal the entire method, outright.
The collapse of GAMA precipitated a sequence of events which made it necessary for John and Gary to move Bedini Electronics out of Los Angeles. So, in 1990, they moved to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, to lick their wounds and quietly set up shop again. The audio business had changed a lot since they started. The recording industry was moving away from analog and adopting digital methods. Amplifier sales had been dropping for years.
To kick-start the business again, Bedini Electronics introduced the Clarifier in 1990, another one of John’s amazing technologies to make digital recordings play back with higher fidelity sound and visual accuracy. Critics and audiophiles eventually loved it, and they clawed their way back into business.
But John and Gary had seen the trend a couple of times. The only people they could really trust and count on were each other. By the end of the 1990s the economy was booming and Clarifiers were a big success. John’s experiments in self-running machines had evolved to include a simple, hand-held toy that could run from a 9 volt battery for a very long time. Much, much longer in fact than the battery could run any other device or appliance.
And then, in the winter of 2001, another interesting thing happened. A friend came over to John’s shop one day and asked him if he would help his daughter with a Science Fair project. John agreed, and so he taught Shawnee Baughman how to build the toy motor that didn’t run its battery down. Amid significant controversy, she won the Science Fair that year in Coeur d’Alene, but the science teachers were not amused and they did not believe that Shawnee could possibly know more about electricity that they did.
Shawnee’s successful replication of John’s technology set off a sequence of events which lead to the formation of Energenx, Inc., the development of the advanced battery chargers and solar charge controllers, and the eventual publishing of the bulk of John’s scientific work by Energetic Productions, Inc. and A&P Electronic Media.
At his death, John was the world’s foremost authority on the work of Royal Raymond Rife and Nathan B. Stubblefield. He made dramatic and substantial contributions to the audio industry and stands within the top 5 audio engineers of all time. But history’s special place for John will be as the inventor who gave the world its first trillion dollar invention, the simple self-running machine, and placed it fully and completely in the public domain, and taught tens of thousands of people in over 50 countries how to replicate it successfully.
The magnitude of John’s humanity and generosity is yet to be appreciated, but one thing is certain, much less of this would have happened if Gary had not been there with him, every step of the way. Gary’s name is on every amplifier; his personal work is in every battery charger; his unrecognized support is in every minute John had to discover what he found and do what he did.
John thought, we all thought, that he would go on after Gary’s passing. But his heart simply said NO. What they did, they accomplished together. The spectacular, creative output from the Bedini Brothers for the benefit of humanity now comes to an end, but the good that will come from this will continue to grow for decades.
Today, we mourn the loss of these two great human beings. John’s role was to be in the spotlight. Gary’s role was to make sure the spotlight was focused properly on John’s accomplishments. They each played their roles with grace, humility, loyalty and trust. It was my great honor to know them both.
In closing, I offer this short poem about John’s passing.
The brightest light has left the room,
how can we go on? asks the first friend.
All we can do, says the other,
is live our own lives and remember,
Plasma Impulse Motor by Aaron Murakami, presents a novel way to power an inductor that appears to possibly have a reduced resistance/impedance effect in the entire circuit. This may prove out to show how to get a stronger magnetic punch on a coil thereby increasing its power so we can have stronger motors for the same or less electricity. It is also a 100% mirror image of the Gray Tube circuit, which is though by many to be THE Holy Grail of Free Energy since the output is astoundingly high compared to the input. If the inductor’s impedance is being reduced, even a little, this is a very important discovery in electromagnetic science. Release date – August 27, 2016. Learn more: Plasma Impulse Motor
Scotch Yoke Solenoid Motor by Aaron Murakami, Bob Teal’s Magnipulsion motor ran on a car battery and generated enough mechanical work to run a 20 ton conveyor belt for 6 months and the battery never went dead!
His motor used solenoid coils that when charged, they would pull an iron rod into them and these rods turned a conventional crankshaft. When the coils were turned off, he recaptured almost all the electricity and used it over and over and over. Despite the poor mechanical performance of the crankshaft that is just like the ones in most of our automobiles, he still had those profound results.
When I first learned about the Bourke Engine about 8 years ago, the most efficient gasoline engine ever developed, the reciprocating motion was turned into rotary motion with a very intriguing mechanism called a Scotch Yoke. While that yoke is not new and was not even new when Russell Bourke used it in his opposing piston engine, it helped to take his efficiency to levels that are claimed to be impossible. Instantly, I knew that marrying the Scotch Yoke mechanism to a Bob Teal type electromagnetic motor would be the ultimate combination and this presentation shows the concepts, timing mechanism and a masterfully built Scotch Yoke with iron rods going into solenoid coils with only a couple thousand’s inch gap!
The concept of putting these two things together is mine, Peter Lindemann who has studied the Bob Teal technology for years and is actually the inspiration for his variable reluctance motor that Eric Dollard tested at 108% back in the 1980’s came up with the timing mechanism, Ken Flanigan did all of the machining and Graham Gunderson is helping to design the driver circuit. For any of you that have wanted to see a collaboration between some of the presenters at the conference, this is it. What is presented is the history of the Bob Teal motor and how it relates to this project, where we are at with the project at the moment and where we’re going with it. Proceeds from this presentation will go to funding the rest of the project so we can open source it all and bring it straight to the people! Make sure to get a copy so you can learn about the most efficient way to turn reciprocating motion into rotary, which can pump water, drive you around town (scaled up) or other mechanical applications with the minimum amount of electricity.

Bedini SG – Beyond the Advanced Handbook by Peter Lindemann – This is the first time John Bedini’s 1984 Kromrey Generator has been publicly demonstrated ever and the meters showed that the output was 200% compared to the input. And, the primary KEY piece of information to make it was has been fully disclosed! The Bedini SG that was demonstrated had a self-rotating battery system based on Bedini’s Splitting the Positive diagram and it recycled virtually all of the energy is used to run the energizer back through batteries to charge them up. The amp hours of running time that this energizer demonstrated was way more than the battery capacity can account for. A diode method was also shown that elicited way more radiant energy than the circuit and batteries could even handle, which teaches you that generating the radiant is not the issue because it has always been in the machine from the beginning – the real issue is how to safely capture it! The bottom line is that this presentation demonstrates that what was taught in the Advanced Bedini SG Handbook book is true. Release date – August 9, 2016.

Panel Discussion at the 2016 Energy Science & Technology Conference – This starts with some announcements from the vendors who had tables at the conference and then we celebrated Tesla’s 160th Birthday by playing the trailer to a very important documentary called Teslafy. The director of the documentary Janja Glogovac was there to share a bit about her work. The panel discussion was moderated by Aaron Murakami and included contributions by Peter Lindemann, Paul Babcock, Moray B. King, Graham Gunderson, Professor Robert Haralick, Jim Murray, Mike Waters and Eric P. Dollard. Watch it free right below, give it a LIKE and please share it with all your friends!
Cold Electricity by Aaron Murakami – This presentation reveals and unknown patent application that spells out the clearest description and list of benefits of Cold Electricity out of any public document. It has been hiding in plain sight for years and is the subject of a replication attempt. There are enough details in this presentation to demonstrate the basic switching method and two proposed methods of operation. Proceeds from this video will be used to further the replication attempt and we hope that others will be able to follow suit. Learn more: Cold Electricity
