The so-called “Aesop Institute” has engaged for many years in the very dishonest and unscrupulous practice of soliciting loans and donations under an endless series of false pretenses, that it is developing and even “prototyping” various “revolutionary breakthroughs,” such as “NO FUEL ENGINES” that run on ambient heat alone – or run on “Virtual Photon Flux” – or on “Collapsing Hydrogen Orbits” – or even on the acoustic energy of sound from a horn.

Aesop Institute’s make-believe strictly ambient heat engine is ruled out by the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This has been understood by physicists for at least 180 years. There is no “new science” that has ever determined such an engine to be possible.

Aesop Institute’s make-believe “Virtual Photon Flux” engine is based on the idea that accessible electric power “is everywhere present in unlimited quantities” – which we know to be false.

Aesop Institute’s make-believe “Collapsing Hydrogen Orbits” engine is based on Randell Mills’ theory of “hydrino” hydrogen, which every scientist knows to be false.

Aesop Institute’s make-believe horn-powered engine is based on the pretense that a magnetized tuning rod could somehow “multiply energy” – a ludicrous notion, which is obviously ruled out by the law of conservation of energy.

Aesop Institute’s very latest make-believe engine is a perpetual motion machine in the form of a self-powered air compressor, which proposes to use a turbine to compress air to spin the turbine to compress air to spin the turbine.

Aesop Institute has never offered the slightest shadow of evidence that it is actually developing or “prototyping” any of these make-believe physics-defying “revolutionary breakthroughs.” All it has ever offered are mere declarations that it is doing so – unsupported by any proof whatever, of any kind whatever.

There are no “revolutionary breakthroughs” to be found on Goldes’ fraudulent “Aesop Institute” website. There is only pseudoscience, relentless flimflam, and empty claims of engines that are ruled out by the laws of physics.

I have devoted my life to the study of physics, for the past forty years.

The so-called "Aesop Institute" has engaged for many years in the very dishonest and unscrupulous practice of soliciting loans and donations under an endless series of false pretenses, that it is developing and even
"prototyping" various "revolutionary breakthroughs," such as "NO FUEL ENGINES" that run on ambient heat alone - or run on "Virtual Photon Flux" - or on "Collapsing Hydrogen Orbitals" - or even on the acoustic energy of sound from a horn.

Every single one of these ludicrous pretenses are based on pseudophysics and pseudoscience. Not one of them has the slightest prospect of ever being produced. They are not examples of "revolutionary technology" - they are merely examples of make-believe technology.

Aesop Institute's make-believe strictly ambient heat engine is ruled out by the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This has been understood by physicists for at least 180 years. There is no "new science" that has ever determined such an engine to be possible.

Aesop Institute's make-believe "Virtual Photon Flux" engine is based on the idea that accessible electric power "is everywhere present in unlimited quantities" - which we know to be false.

Aesop Institute's make-believe "Collapsing Hydrogen Orbital" engine is based on Randell Mills' theory of "hydrino" hydrogen, which every scientist knows to be totally false.

Aesop Institute's make-believe horn-powered engine is based on the pretense that a magnetized tuning rod could somehow "multiply energy" - a ludicrous notion, which is obviously ruled out by the law of conservation of energy.

Aesop Institute has never offered the slightest shadow of evidence that it is actually developing or "prototyping" any of these make-believe physics-defying "revolutionary breakthroughs." All it has ever offered are mere declarations that it is doing so - unsupported by any proof whatever, of any kind whatever. In other words, Aesop Institute simply takes advantage of misplaced and unwarranted trust in their honesty.

This personal attack, as with others by those who hide behind pseudonyms, is composed of lies, half-truths and ignorance.

The wind-electric hybrid vehicle was the cover story for Popular Science in November of 1976. SunWind developed the electric propulsion system for what was previously a
brilliant racing land yacht totally dependent upon the wind.

Room Temperature Superconductors Inc. completed four Small Business Innovation Research contracts on our Ultraconductors - including a Phase II with the USAF after the Air Force did its own tests of the materials during Phase I. Fractal Systems independently reproduced almost 1,000 samples of these materials on a separate USAF contract. These polymer equivalents of an ambient temperature superconductor are expected to be commercialized by CHAVA Energy. See Ultraconductors at www.chavaenergy.com

The science behind fractional Hydrogen, which I call ECHO, Energy from Collapsing Hydrogen Orbits, is detailed at www.chavascience.com See also The Coler Papers on that website for a history of a magnetic generator that became a Top Secret project in Nazi Germany after a 6,000 watt example was demonstrated.

What the late Dr. Robert Carroll called Pion fusion is usually known today as Muon Fusion. Active programs are pursuing it in Japan, the UK, Australia and elsewhere. See www.starscientific.com.au/
It is expected to propel spacecraft in the future. Such craft are anticipated by mainstream scientists to approach the speed of light. If Carroll's non-relativistic physics proves correct, such spacecraft will be able to far exceed lightspeed and open paths to exploration of Goldilocks planets.

This supposed evaluation of my work is a sad example of a pathetic attack. It reflects what has been called pathological skepticism and propagates false information.

To quote from the bio and AESOP history on the website: "It is little recognized that revolutionary new science and technology typically has a 20 to 30 year incubation period before practical products emerge. In the case of radically new approaches to energy, due to the need to learn by performing a very large number of laboratory experiments with inadequate funds and in the face of widespread disbelief, disparagement, and ridicule - it has taken far longer. However, independent scientific validation has begun and a variety of remarkable, game-changing, energy products are at last beginning to be born."

Think of the revolutionary engine as a refrigerator that produces electricity and needs no fuel.

Skeptics might find CIRCUMVENTING SECOND LAW on the AESOP Institute website of interest.

Accelerate the development of the patent pending engine that is designed to run on atmospheric heat, a form of solar energy. See www.aesopinstitute.org Once validated by an independent lab, small desktop piston engines providing power to run and recharge electronic devices will speak more loudly than arguments. If these engines perform as anticipated, they will open awareness of other neglected new science which can help to accelerate replacement of fossil and radioactive fuels.

This review above is a troll attack. The individual who posts under the name Penny Gruber, as well as others, has been an internet troll for many years. Another troll has more recently been launching these attacks and quoting Penny Gruber.

She attacks unproven technologies, most of which
are inventor’s delusion. She is sometimes correct.

Her repeated accusations of fraud and scam are in this case simply false.

Partial truths and innuendo are used to back up the assertions, including unsubstantiated claims, guilt by association, etc. Much of what is quoted is simply untrue.

Thinking that a lie told hundreds of times will gain validity, these attacks are posted often.

Entrepreneurs working with inventors making claims of breakthrough technologies make mistakes, sometimes big ones. We have been no exception.

Material on the AESOP Institute website reflects decades of experience. That site opens the door to technologies with a high probability of making major contributions to accelerating a sharp reduction in the need for fossil and radioactive fuels.

A few specific comments: The wind-electric hybrid vehicle was the cover story for Popular Science in November, 1976. SunWind Ltd., a firm which I founded, created and supplied the electric drive that made it highway capable, as mentioned in the article. The vehicle was a prototype by a brilliant inventor and was never claimed to be production ready.

Magnetic Power Inc. (MPI) and its subsidiary, Room Temperature Superconductors Inc. were awarded four Small Business Innovation Research Contracts by the Department of Defense. These included a Phase II award by the USAF after successful tests of our room temperature superconductors by the Air Force during the Phase I contract. Since these are polymer materials we created the name Ultraconductors™. Almost 1,000 samples of these remarkable materials were independently reproduced for the USAF by Fractal Systems. The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy assisted with this program. Funding was interrupted by global economic factors beyond our control. Development is expected to resume under the auspices of CHAVA Energy.

Magnetic Power Inc. (MPI) was formed to explore the potential of seemingly self-powered magnetic systems to generate electricity. A magnetic generator was demonstrated in Germany in 1925 and by 1937 was producing 6,000 watts. It became a Top Secret program for the Nazi Navy which wanted to use it to recharge submarine batteries without requiring a sub to surface. The lab was bombed late in World War II. British Intelligence published a Report in 1946 indicating the work was genuine. That Report was declassified in 1979. See The Coler Devices at www.chavascience.com for more of the story. MPI Magnetic Generators are still under development under the auspices of CHAVA Energy. See www.chavaenergy.com

The patented device we once called POWERGENIE is the subject of a second patent pending and appears to have the potential to become a practical commercial product in the future.

The electric car that claimed to have run more than 4,000 miles was a hybrid that turned out to be a scam by an inventor. We should never have publicized his claim. That was clearly a mistake.

Anyone familiar with the markets for power generation is aware that breakthrough systems that need no fuel are likely to generate revenues in the billions of dollars.

New science typically takes 20 to 30 years to result in practical products. Technologies that challenge conventional wisdom take much longer. Entrepreneurs are always optimists and if they were aware of the true timetable for breakthroughs in energy they would probably never attempt the task.

The engine that needs no fuel is an AESOP Institute prototype project. It circumvents The Second Law of Thermodynamics. Until validated by an independent lab, skepticism is understandable. See NO FUEL ENGINE at www.aesopinstitute.org to learn more about what appears to have the potential to demonstrate an astonishing potential: The ability to generate electricity without the need for fossil or radioactive fuels. If it performs as anticipated, it will change the energy and economic landscape.
