GlobalBEM conference 2019 – Saturday

Is a breakthrough energy on the horizon?

Last Saturday, I was attending the 2019 Global Breakthrough Energy Conference. A conference about break through energy technologies which are, unfortunately, considered as fringe or pseudo-science based inventions according to mainstream scholars and universities.

But, listening to the topics involved, this field of science is far from the hocus pocus and theoretical gibberish and seems to have a real down to earth hard core scientific basis with provable working examples shown.

I was there to explore the viable alternatives to a centralized energy dependency. Technologies that can save us from the stranglehold of power and money hungry conglomerates. Because it is about time that we the people, take our (literal) power back!

Opening speech

The conference was hosted by Susan Manewich, co-author of Hidden Energy and current president of New Energy Movement. Susan is also involved in the areas of leadership consulting, emotional intelligence, resonant technology and a better understanding of human dynamics and social systems to successfully transition through these global changes.

After Susan opened the conference, she introduced the 3rd generation of the Schauberger family from Austria; Jörg Schauberger.

Jörg Schauberger

The first speaker to kick off the Global BEM conference 2019 is author and editor of several books and video documentations about his grandfather Viktor Schauberger, speaker at international congresses and head of PKS (Pythagoras Kepler System).

He is holding a science-degree (Magister rer. nat.) in Mathematics from the Karl-Franzens-University in Graz, Austria.
With his company Schauberger Natur Technik he is partner in a research group (Applied Water Physics) at Wetsus in Leeuwarden.

The big topic during the first half of the conference was clearly focused on the characteristics of water. 
Jörg Schauberger started off with showing the nature of water, how it behaves and how to work with water in collaboration with nature. This study was of course already started by his famous grandfather Viktor Schauberger (a comprehensive documentary about the work of Viktor can be found on this blog: Comprehend and Copy Nature) a natural philosopher who studied nature to the core and applied his knowledge in his inventions.
Jörg explained how rivers can be controlled and redirected by taking into account the meandering natural flow of water throughout the land. The actual natural dynamics for river engineering. He mentioned the vortex shaped self cleaning phenomena of water. The pulling forces coming from the movement of water demonstrated by the log transportation system Viktor Schauberger built (see documentary link above).
In short terms, he showed a complete holistic approach to not only water engineering, but he also explained the ramifications of bad water management in mono-culture and agriculture or cultural aspects regarding the water’s function, value and purpose, cutting-edge research on phenomena like water memory or energetic water quality.Otmar Grober, an Austrian river engineer, is a partner in holistic river regulation design. Consisting of natural materials, Grober’s engineering solutions serve as efficient flood and erosion protection. These solutions are cost saving and seem to accelerate recovery of the rehabilitated waterways by improving chemical and energetic water quality.

Inclined Micro Groins (Also a known term in permaculture) can help in controlling the river flow. Essentially, with this technique, the otherwise detrimental energy of the water does not actually reach the shoreline, but it flows harmlessly in the middle of the river. A rich illustrated example can be found here.
_____________________________________________Only nature should be our teacher. Nature is polar, not dualistic
_____________________________________________He showed the audience that nature works in a quiet, non-dualistic way. Tree and plant life does not wonder in terms of good and bad or hot and cold. A tree or plant just is and grows with the basic ingredients and conditions necessary to prosper. Each kind of plant produces its own unique kind of water.Jörg also mentioned Wilson “Snowflake” Bentley, who was the first known photographer of snowflakes. He perfected a process of catching flakes on black velvet in such a way that their images could be captured before they either melted or sublimated.From the more than 5000 pictures Wilson took of the snowflakes during his life, you can see the vast variety of geometrical shapes. The famous expression that “no two snowflakes are alike” must have come from his research. Wilson Bentley was a great contributor to the illustration of natural (frozen) water patterns.

Talking about natural geometric patterns; Cymetics, the modal vibration phenomena was also mentioned by Jörg Schauberger as a visual aid to see the frequency and geometry relation of natural shapes and patterns of liquid and fine grained materials.

But of course, the conference is about free energy and Jörg mentioned the energy from water. A meandering healthy and clean river can give energy. If you actually measure the voltage, a meandering river gives energy and a straight flowing “channel” of water does not move the volt meter.

In regards of energy from water, Jörg Schauberger also mentioned the works of Olof Alexandersson (author of  “Living Water: Viktor Schauberger and the Secrets of Natural Energy”) and Lasse Johansson.

The book of Alexandersson describes that Viktor Schauberger as an inventor developed a number of ingenious machines which would revolutionize farming, horticulture, forestry and aircraft propulsion. He developed water purification systems, and showed how air and water could be harnessed as fuels for many machines. His discovery of implosive energy and diamagnetism had many practical applications, most of which have yet to be developed.

However, old remnants of the implosion turbine designs from Viktor showed up in the USA and replica’s where made by enthusiasts of Viktor’s work.
Allegedly, UFO like flying machines where spotted in South America right after WWII, based on the implosion (anti-gravity) techniques from Viktor. However, Jörg claims never to have seen a flying machine of this sort in his entire life.

And last but not least, in the list of names Hal Puthoff was mentioned. Puthoff , a Stanford Ph.D., was heavily involved in alternative approaches to general relativity and quantum mechanics. Later on, he was conducting experiments in the field of remote viewing, together with Russell Targ.
In 1985, Puthoff founded a for-profit company, EarthTech International in Austin, TX.

At about the same time, he founded an academically-oriented scientific research organization, Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin (IASA), also in Austin, TX, where he is Director. Through this institute, gravity and zero-point energy research was conducted.
Puthoff and EarthTech were granted a US Patent 5,845,220[10] in 1998 after five years delay. The claims were disputed that information could be transmitted through a distance using a modulated potential with no electric or magnetic field components.
At the end of  Jörg Schauberger’s presentation, some nice quotes from his grandfather where there to remind us to work with nature and not against it. We live in a crucial time where we have to change our ways in order to live in abundance on this earth, not in (man made) scarcity and oppression. A message not to be taken lightly!

Dr. Theo Almeida Murphy

Next speaker was Dr. Theo Almeida Murphy. A scholar from the Canary Islands who went to Germany to study Physics in Marburg and Berlin. He also got into mathematics, chemistry, medicine and philosophy but his heart was in Physics. He focused on nuclear methods for studying solid state matter. As an entrepreneur he founded a company concentrated on developing additives for fuels based on water. It was during this time that he got involved in the mysteries of water.
His presentation started with the physical introduction of the Joe-cell and passed it around through the audience to have a look and feel.
The HHO gas was the topic at hand and other than the more philosophical approach from earlier speaker Jörg Schauberger, the audience was introduced to a more the technical and scientific approach for applications for water as a fuel. Funny subjective ‘gimmick’ that was introduced was the expression of Mickey Mouse as the childish H2O atom structure taught at schools on an early age. (You had to be there to appreciate it 🙂
Many examples as HHO gas as a branded name by inventors. Brand names such as Brown’s gas or Magnegas. However, the point being that many of these inventors found a new coherent and harmonious binding of ‘molecules’ in the name of charge clusters or supramolecular water clusters.
The ability to burn water (gas) and use it in a blow torch like setup to cut through various (very hard to cut ) materials with an arguably low flame temperature raises a lot of scientific questions. The fundamental question would be: How can water burn? Theo showed a lot of various situations where these different new gasses or Supramolecular water clusters. Most of the time, these gasses are formed during experiments.

“It is time to use water as a fuel. Water will be the coal of the future” Jules Verne

Theo mentioned Water Fog from Walter Jenkins , see: “H2 Global, clean fuel for a clean future

Most water fuel researchers and developers are focused on methods to separate hydrogen and oxygen from water with electrolysis (running electrical current through the water). However, there are other ways that are much more efficient and effective. With only hundreds of milliamps, Walter Jenkins can run an engine with 95%+ water. Walter isn’t using electrolysis, but he was heavily involved with that years ago and he is actually the original developer of the popular dry cell that most experimenters are using.

Theo also mentioned Andrija Puharich. Dr Andrija Puharich reportedly drove his motor home for hundreds of thousands of miles around North America in the 1970s using only water as fuel. At a mountain pass in Mexico, he collected snow for water. It is said that Stanley Meyer studied papers of Andrija and built his own ‘water car’.
Theo went on about a peculiar state of very pure water called xerosydryle(FROM ANCIENT GREEK: XEROS (DRY) – IDRO (WATER) – YLE (MATTER)
and ‘water neurons’. Very interesting indeed!
After his talk and after the first break, Theo approached me and asked me what I was doing at the conference and I told him I was running a blog. So Theo, now you know where to find me 🙂

Mats Lewan

After the small break we left the water topic and went into LENR (Low energy nuclear reaction) technology with Mats Lewan.

For over twenty years, journalist and public speaker Mats Lewan, author of the book An Impossible Invention: The true story of the energy source that could change the world—has been writing about technology and science based on his profound knowledge in the field. His style is captivating and easy to follow, even for those who are not technology savvy.

He is committed to the issue of where our world is heading and how people and technology interact. Both as a speaker and writer, he identifies the technology-driven social change that many sense but is often difficult to describe.

Lewan has been working for more than fifteen years as a technology reporter for the leading Swedish technology magazine Ny Teknik. He also started the forward-looking Swedish digital magazine Next Magasin for which he was the managing editor.

Previously Lewan worked internationally as a freelance journalist, and as a reporter for CBS-CNET News in San Francisco while attending the Innovation Journalism Program at Stanford University.

During this year’s Global BEM conference, Mats talked about Andrea Rossi’s E-cat technology and the history of Andrea’s struggle with patents and greedy industrialists and cancer. His perseverance to focus on his projects led to the latest version of E-cat in early 2019.
I hoped for Mats to also mention the late Eugene Mallove (Editor-In-Chief of the magazine Infinite Energy and Director of the New Energy Research Laboratory in New Hampshire), who also was heavily involved in LENR technology and was allegedly killed by his neighbour just before and important revelation about cold fusion on a famous radio show (together with David Wilcock and Richard C. Hoagland).
But unfortunately, Mats focused solely on Andrea Rossi. More on Andrea’s work on E-cat can be found on this blog in multiple articles. You can start here and here and of course on Mats’ own blog: “An Impossible Invention”.

GAIA – Energy

Robert Reich and Roberto Reuter. This investor duo on stage that were a bit lost on their train of thought in the beginning of their presentation it seemed. Later on they picked up the pace on their story about the communication between inventor and investor. Or as they would describe: investor ≠ inventor. They claim to be the missing link of communication between investor and inventor.

GAIA was founded on the 15th September 2011 by 6 founding members. The association was able to attract more than 2400 enthusiasts, visionaries, pioneers, sponsors and extraordinary gifted people and keeps growing. They strongly believe that it is possible to power every single building with self-sufficient energy without the exploitation of Earth’s natural resources.

Their presentation was the business side of bringing these exotic technologies to the market, meaning; from inventor to family life, without industry and patent pending involved. Finance working machines from concept to product, or rather from proto-type to mass production.
Their portfolio was rather diverse as well as their order book, which contained already lots of orders from different countries around the world. They accomplished this with minimal marketing. An interesting story to say the least.

Peter Lindemann

After the Robert and Roberto duo, it was time for Peter Lindemann to take the stage. Peter has 40 + years of experience in this field and in June of 2000, Peter and his wife Jackie formed Clear Tech, Inc. to develop and market information products on Free Energy systems.

Peter Lindemann continues to be a sought after lecturer, consultant and educator in the field of alternative energy solutions.

Peter gave his presentation/lecture on Tesla’s Self Acting Engine. It is Peter’s concept of bringing together the Sterling engine (Advanced regenerative heat engine) and ROVAC (Rotary Vane System or advanced regenerative heat pump) as a super efficient regenerative energy system with almost 100% efficiency, by recycling the ‘waste’ energy back into the loop.
In theory, could this be the sought after machine Tesla was writing about in 1900 in Century magazine? Peter wants to bring this concept to life and he is spreading the word about this idea.
In fact, this concept would be an engine which would run on sun energy. Extracting the necessary energy from the environment by means of using the (sun heated) ambient temperature to run an engine.

Tesla had an intense interest in statements from Camot and Lord Kelvin which meant virtually that: “it is impossible for an inanimate mechanism or self acting machine to cool a portion of the medium below the temperature of the surrounding, and operate by the heat extracted”.


Panel Discussion

Before the panel discussion started, there was a brief introduction to There were a few people there who told a story that caught my attention.
Plant life (and also human and animal life) shows the abundance of energy. Nature and esoteric knowledge of self provide many answers to the secrets of life and with that the understanding of breakthrough energy concepts. Look at native tribes on Earth and their abilities to ‘talk’ to plant and animal life.
Furthermore, the message is that our heart is the actual ‘brain’ we should use and our heart should lead the brain, for it is a much faster ‘computer’ that knows intuitively how our connection with nature is.
This group is combining holistic esoteric knowledge with free energy technology through FESIG, Free Energy Special Interest Group.
During the panel discussion and Q&A, I picked up the following core statements and messages:
  • The overall sentiment of the public and main stream scholars is the fear of change and future developments and a rigorous paradigm shift. We need to keep informing everyone about this science and technology in order to overcome fear. Fundamental change in world perspective is needed for at least 15% of the world population for the rest to follow (according to some studies). This is imminent for real change.
  • Trust is a very important factor when it comes to sharing ideas and visionary thinking with other peers or colleagues in the same field of work. There is fear of losing the idea to someone else who will run with the idea and make lots of money or strike up all the credits. Most of the time, ego or greed gets in the way of ideas coming to life. Going open source could be a good solution.
  • There are too many different views of scientists and inventors. Views or visionary thinking which can be sorted in the same category of invention or solution, but there is no or little co-operation between these inventors about the sharing of knowledge or the combining of assets and resources to accomplish a common solution. Collaboration in this area should be encouraged!
  • Curiosity is fundamental for coherence between individuals, when it comes to exploring your own visionary ideas. There must be an environment where people are encouraged to share and grow to become the best version of themselves.
  • Internet can help with collaboration and communication, but it is crucial to have face to face contact with like minded people. Ideally, very strong collaboration between parties can reduce the time to develop a viable apparatus from concept to product. Maybe a project which typically takes 10 years to finish, can be finished in maybe half the time!
  • Visionary concepts need grassroots collaboration and funding to come to life as a working product. We can not expect from authoritative business or politics to come up with solution as their interests are not in the interest of we, the people and they have a conflict of interest towards our goals. Although, it can help and in many cases it is even crucial to get co-operation of local authority to accomplish common goals.
  • The biggest bottleneck between investors and inventors is to get past the phase 1 prototype to full production. Nowadays there are investors with ideals and there are multiple new (online) funding capabilities, which can be interesting, rather than thinking in old ways to get capital. Although investors still do not like to put their money on too much risk, there is also a big sentiment these days to invest in a common goal which will benefit the many instead of the lucky few. We should explore the possibilities. One of the interesting institutions I have been in contact with is
At the end of the conference I started thinking about a widespread collaboration with many idealistic institutions and initiatives.  
There must be parties that are willing to co-operate.
Just to name a few:
For now, goodbye and maybe soon I will see a few people from the conference to exchange constructive thoughts. I sure hope so!
