R. Buckmister Fuller

buckminsterfuller1 

Richard Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller (July 12, 1895 – July 1, 1983)[1] was an American systems theorist, author,designer, inventor, futurist and second president of Mensa International, the high IQ society.

Fuller published more than 30 books, inventing and popularizing terms such as "Spaceship Earth", ephemeralization, and synergetic. He also developed numerous inventions, mainly architectural designs, the best known of which is thegeodesic dome. Carbon molecules known as fullerenes were later named by scientists for their resemblance to geodesic spheres.

Fuller died on July 1, 1983, 11 days before his 88th birthday. During the period leading up to his death, his wife had been lying comatose in a Los Angeles hospital, dying of cancer. It was while visiting her there that he exclaimed, at a certain point: "She is squeezing my hand!" He then stood up, suffered a heart attack, and died an hour later, at age 87. His wife of 66 years died 36 hours later. They are buried in Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Helen Caldicott

helencaldicott2

The single most articulate and passionate advocate of citizen action to remedy the nuclear and environmental crises, Dr Helen Caldicott, has devoted the last 38 years to an international campaign to educate the public about the medical hazards of the nuclear age and the necessary changes in human behavior to stop environmental destruction.

While living in the United States from 1977 to 1986, she co-founded the Physicians for Social Responsibility, an organization of 23,000 doctors committed to educating their colleagues about the dangers of nuclear power, nuclear weapons and nuclear war. On trips abroad she helped start similar medical organizations in many other countries. The international umbrella group (International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War) won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1985. She also founded the Women’s Action for Nuclear Disarmament (WAND) in the US in 1980.

Internal Radioactive Emitters – Invisible, Tasteless, and Odorless
Huge quantities of radioactive elements, more than anyone has been able or willing to measure, have been continuously released into the air and water since the multiple meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi Complex in Japan on and around March 11, 2011.

This accident is enormous in its medical implications. It will induce an epidemic of cancer the likes of which the world has only rarely experienced, as people inhale the radioactive elements, eat radioactive vegetables, rice & meat, and drink radioactive milk & teas.

Nikola Tesla

tesla23

THE GENIUS WHO LIT THE WORLD

"Nature and Nature's laws lay hid in night:
God said, "Let Tesla be", and all was light."

Born on July 9/10, 1856 in Smiljan, Lika (Austria-Hungary)
Died on January 7, 1943 in New York City, New York (USA)
Inventions: a telephone repeater, rotating magnetic field principle, polyphase alternating-current system, induction motor, alternating-current power transmission, Tesla coil transformer, wireless communication, radio, fluorescent lights, and more than 700 other patents. 

Tesla was a pioneer in many fields. The Tesla coil, which he invented in 1891, is widely used today in radio and television sets and other electronic equipment. That year also marked the date of Tesla's United States citizenship. His alternating current induction motor is considered one of the ten greatest discoveries of all time. Among his discoveries are the fluorescent light , laser beam, wireless communications, wireless transmission of electrical energy, remote control, robotics, Tesla’s turbines and vertical take off aircraft. Tesla is the father of the radio and the modern electrical transmissions systems. He registered over 700 patents worldwide. His vision included exploration of solar energy and the power of the sea. He foresaw interplanetary communications and satellites.

The Century Magazine published Tesla's principles of telegraphy without wires, popularizing scientific lectures given before Franklin Institute in February 1893.

carson

Rachel Carson, writer, scientist, and ecologist, grew up simply in the rural river town of Springdale, Pennsylvania. Her mother bequeathed to her a life-long love of nature and the living world that Rachel expressed first as a writer and later as a student of marine biology. Carson graduated from Pennsylvania College for Women (now Chatham College) in 1929, studied at the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory, and received her MA in zoology from Johns Hopkins University in 1932.

She was hired by the U.S. Bureau of Fisheries to write radio scripts during the Depression and supplemented her income writing feature articles on natural history for the Baltimore Sun. She began a fifteen-year career in the federal service as a scientist and editor in 1936 and rose to become Editor-in-Chief of all publications for the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The purpose of the site is for information only.  I do not have time for, nor am I interested in, debating how many angels can dance on the head of a pin, so to speak.  Whether a particular model is “right” or “wrong” is not the question; the question is, is it useful and does it predict some new and useful results?   Eventually, technical concepts are useful only if they can do something different, provide a better model, etc.  Also, abstract mathematics is a wonderful exercise and set of models, but the physics is in the concepts which the mathematical symbols represent and which the mathematical operations manipulate.  The physics is not in the mathematics itself, per se

12polemonopole

Monopole replication of a large 12 Pole Energizer. This kit is made available because hundreds of people have asked for it over the years. We are providing a service to such people so that they can experiment with this technology and not have to spend tens of thousands of dollars having this system made up by machinists. It is not fully assembled and will not be assembled for people upon request. It is for learning and research purposes. Experiment at your own risk. Kit is molded and machined to the highest quality. This kit has 12 3.5" motor coils and a 6" x 12" aluminum rotor. 96 #18 gauge wires with 96 circuits on 12 circuit boards. It has an aluminum base frame with plexy glass top. You will be able to run the machine not only at 12V and 24V imputs, but higher. The larger the battery bank used the more you will get out of it (provided the batteries are in good condition). The system allows for the charging bank to be considerably higher voltage than the primary battery bank (or the same if desired). Also included is a generator coil that powers LEDs to light up the Bedini logo and clear plastic. Includes 96 SSG circuits, heat sink and pads, wire to batteries, clips, small sample of xcelplus. Comes with instruction CD and SSG DVD sold above. Customer assembles rotor, frame and circuit. Some of the coiles can be replaced with the single wire coils for additional generator function (for recharging the primary battery or powering other loads. Orders placed now ship approximately 6 weeks from payment. All orders shipped in five boxes.
