BOOK HERALDS COMING ENERGY REVOLUTION
Free energy enthusiasts everywhere take hope. The “Revolution” is coming. That, anyway, is what Atlantis Rising contributor and author Jeane Manning asserts in her new book.
Just out from Avery, The Coming Energy Revolution(230 pages, trade paper) reports the ground-breaking work of unorthodox inventors and scientists from Nikola Tesla to Floyd Sweet; from Keeley to Pons and Fleischman. “Conventional science says that space is cold and still,” she writes, “and that what energy does exist cannot be put to useful work. The new-energy innovators say that conventional science is wrong, and that new-energy research is being suppressed by a combination of scientific inertia and corporate self-interest.” But the suppression can’t last, she argues, “there are simply too many inventors who are close to new energy breakthroughs.”
The book examines technologies from magnets that can redirect the energy of space, to gentler forms of nuclear energy that can take place on a table top. There is hydropower that does not rely on massive dams, as well as clean abundant hydrogen energy and much more.
Note: A future issue will publish many of the drawings and notes on free energy devices and the like which have been sent in by our readers. You will be able to judge for yourself, what is real and what isn’t.
PILTDOWN SKULL FAKER FINGERED
Finally, the mysterious case of The Piltdown Man hoax can be considered closed. That, at least, is the conclusion to be drawn from evidence recently unearthed at the British Natural History Museum. The fraud which fooled the orthodox paleontological establishment into believing that the so-called missing link between humans and apes had been discovered, was exposed in 1953, but, until now, the identity of the perpetrator had remained a mystery. This spring’s discovery in a museum loft of a personal trunk containing bones stained in the same manner at the Piltdown fossils appears to finger Martin A.C. Hinton, a notorious practical joker and curator of zoology at the museum.
Charles Dawson’s 1912 discovery in a gravel pit at Piltdown, 30 miles south of London of a skull with the apparent brain capacity of modern humans and an ape-like jaw, set the scientific world of the time ablaze. Seeming, as it did, to vindicate the popular notion that humans had descended from apes, the new find was readily embraced by the ‘authorities’ as their long-sought proof. And so it remained for over a generation until finally tests conducted by the museum conclusively proved the skull a fake. The identity of the forger, though, had remained unproven until discovery of the trunk with Hinton’s initials on it.
But even as the Piltdown controversy closes, questions concerning the influence of wishful thinking on scientific orthodoxy remain open. For a case in point, see Joseph Jochmans’ article within on the true antiquity of the Great Pyramid.
