One more reason to hope that any "bump in the road" isn't an axle-buster: Zowie!

Hey Ron check out the photo below!!!

Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Co. is considering a public offering of BlackLight Power stock in 2000. The investment bank says that the two chief needs that will trigger an IPO are a licensing agreement with a "household name company" and more substantial academic validation of its technologies. BlackLight Power is in discussions with DaimlerChrysler, and three major corporations are already examining materials it has produced, say Mills and company executives.

Now this is one IPO I would invest in if the theories pass academic scrutiny...

Me too. It has several striking similarities to a small pharma I hold a modest position in.

Definitely *way* outside the box, but at the same time, totally devoid of "fringe".

PS: what picture?

When I first saw your thredd there was a picture of a wrecked car in a ditch at the bottom of the screen - an axle-buster :o)

In scientific research, peer review is oftentimes scientists playing "devil's advocate" to either prove you're wrong and stupid or to prove that you're right and lucky.

When I was young and naive whenever I get a bright idea and try to convince others about it, they usually don't get it right away and dismiss it but soon afterwards it becomes their own idea.

I would not wait for academia to accept Mill's theories but also good investments depend on more than good ideas. (marketing, marketability, supply, demand, barriers for competition, government regulations, management etc.)

An excellent catch.

Articles like this always cheer me up. It reminds me of the story about the invention of the Infinite Improbability Drive - see Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. After respectable scientists had given up ever creating the thing, a college student created the drive almost out of thin air - using a very strong cup of hot tea as the power source. He got an award for exceptional cleverness and was afterward lynched by a mob of rampaging respectable scientists, who decided the one thing they hated most of all was a smart ass.

Funny thing is, several years ago Science News described an experiment done in real life that used a hot cup of strong coffee as a power source.

I saved that article, and now this one, to remind me that not everything said in the scientific establishment is the final word. It's sometimes nice to remember that what is sincerely taught us "sheeple" is not the whole story and sometimes is nowhere near the truth.

comments from Dr. Jack Sarfatti, well known quantum theory guru:

Apparently there is some CGI server problem so here is final version of what went out to The Village Voice. See also announcement of "Cosmic Cabaret" by Lynda Williams that was partially but significantly financially supported by the Internet Science Education Project ISEP.

"Let experiment decide if Randell Mills (BlackLight Power) is right. Our group has been working along similar lines with a Hero of the French Resistance in WWII, close friend to Ho Chi Minh, Professor Jean-Pierre Vigier of the University of Paris, former assistant to Prince Louis DeBroglie one of the founders of quantum theory. Mills's "theory" is obviously, as Wolfgang Pauli said, "not even wrong". However, it is possible that he has stumbled into a real phenomenon that Professor Vigier has discovered. Using David Bohm's realistic nonlocal version of quantum theory in which there is both a wave and a particle, not just a wave, Vigier proved that if the electron is not a point particle, then its rotational spin coupling to its orbital motion, and to the spin of the proton nucleus in hydrogen, will produce the tight states. However, the energy released will be sharply peaked around 33 thousand electron volts, and some other peaks as well, much higher than Mills's claim of ultraviolet energy release. We are also working on vacuum reaction propulsion of flying saucers and conscious nano-engineered computers as I explained on the Learning Channel show "Ultra-Science" on "Time Travel". My work here is mentioned on p. 107 of the December 1999 Esquire Magazine. The UFO phenomenon is real and it has military implications of enormous importance. So while Mills's theory is nonsense, his aspirations are not. If his experiments are real I will buy stock in BlackLight even if his theoretical understanding of what he is playing with is "not even wrong" which it is."

There's lots of activity in the "cold fusion" arena, of which BlackLight is one. There are several email lists (vortex-l, freenrg-l -- both from Bill Beatty's web site:, a magazine, conferences and other activity. There is even a kit, sold only to serious scientists, that can produce excess energy when properly set up using the "Patterson beads."

As with other areas of endeavor that could have a huge effect on our society, the media neglects to keep us informed about what's really happening.
