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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would return any remaining funds to the donors, and replace all content on the website with some information explaining how to detect pseudoscience, pseudophysics, and false claims of "revolutionary breakthroughs."

How does this organization compare with others in the same sector?


How much of an impact do you think this organization has?


Will you recommend this organization to others?


When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

This fake Board consists of a single individual who is certain engines cannot run without fuel, a common view. However, two engines, a Ford and a Kia have now proven such engines are possible. AESOP Institute has expanded the new science and is developing advanced engines which can rapidly be produced by the world's engine manufacturers, replacing fossil fuels faster than any known alternative.
