Sweet VTA, ISNE and miscellany - 06/15/97
On the first day of the 1997 ISNE conference in Denver, Moray King, Ken
Shoulders, Dan Nightwolf and several of us went to lunch at a nearby Mexican
restaurant. During the conversation, we got to talking about the Sweet VTA
(vacuum triode amplifier) and how the magnets were programmed to contain the
60 hertz signal.
Don Watson had signed an agreement with ZENERGY which fell through although
Don left me an email saying he had achieved a 3 Watt production of power. He
is now somewhere up around Maryland. Reed and Mike of ZENERGY explained some
of the circumstances surrounding this and I'll leave it to them to make it
Please understand that Sweet had signed many deals with investors, each being
told one part of the Sweet secret, yet none knowing it all. Everyone who was
allowed to view or work with Sweet had to sign non-disclosures making them
subject to lawsuit if they discussed the topic in public.
Tom Bearden innocently mentioned something about Sweet in a public
presentation and was promptly sued for nearly $30,000. So, no names of
sources should ever be publicly associated with Sweet, EVEN TODAY. Don Watson
did NOT sign any of these non-disclosures.
The point about this comment, a trusted source (no name) had informed me that
Sweet used to heat the slab BaFe magnets in a toaster oven to force them to
lose their magnetic polarization. While they were still without a magnetic
field, they were subjected to the biasing field of the 60 cycle signal.
Moray said that Don Watson told him that the slab BaFe magnets were frozen
using liquid nitrogen. In this frozen state, they could be programmed.
I do not understand this in the least since Don never mentioned this freezing
technique to me.
In fact, Don said the magnet to be programmed was to be excited between two
plates that were charged with at least 20KV (DC or AC). This would cause a
'ringing' in the barium which would last for upwards of 15 minutes.
During that time, the magnet could be subjected to a sharp pulse at roughly
260 degrees of a 60 cps sinewave. He said this was based on his own
experiments and seemed to get the best results.
So, it is a known fact that magnet strength can be slightly increased or even
restored by freezing magnets, I have done it as has James Hartman.
If you heat a magnet beyond its Curie temperature, it would be susceptible to
a biasing influence, if you cool it, the field strength would increase making
it less susceptible to any outside 'programming' influences.
About three years ago, I received a letter from a friend and business
associate of the Sweet family, requesting that we not promote the Sweet device
or otherwise release any information regarding it, despite the fact that we
have never had contact with any of the principles.
This was out of respect for the Sweet family to allow them time to attempt to
market or otherwise capitalize on the Sweet discoveries since Floyd Sweets
For that reason, nothing has been publicly posted about the Sweet device on
KeelyNet beyond existing files. As far as I've been able to determine,
nothing has happened beyond the claimed transfer of the only working Sweet
machine to one of the big car companies.
I plan to ask Don about this magnet freezing next time we communicate, he does
float around a lot and will no doubt show up again since his parents live in
Lancaster, a suburb of Dallas.
Why would I believe Don Watson? Because he showed me two magnets, both 4" X
6" by 1/2" thick. One was 'programmed', the other was not.
Using a piece of magnetic field line viewing plastic to view the unprogrammed
magnet, I could clearly see the south pole on one face and the north pole on
the other face, separated at the middle of the 1/2" magnet width by the Bloch
However, in the programmed magnet, the south pole did not stop at the
midpoint, but wrapped up onto the face of the north pole section, extending
inward from the edge by about 1/4". That is where the Bloch wall HAD MOVED.
It was like altering the duty cycle of a square wave, where a normal magnet
would be analogous to a North/South relationship of 50:50, the programmed
magnet was something like 30:70. Quite amazing!
Additionally, there was a bubble within the top North pole face, looking much
like an air bubble in water covered by plastic. And when you put another
magnet near this bubble, IT MOVED away, just like pressing on a sheet of
plastic to move the captive air bubble.
Don said the programming did not always take, but that you could just do it
again, using the same magnet until it did. Also that some magnets were
imperfect, having internal fractures not visible without using the magnetic
The slabs were also sensitive to shock or outside stimulus which would kill
the programmed effect and necessitate the magnet being reprogrammed.
Although I've never seen any working models of the Sweet device, this
observation of the magnets was the closest I'd come, so Don Watson has my vote
of confidence at this point.
Wes Crosiar once mentioned that you could take a clear plastic bag, fill
it with water and hang it up outside. This would repel flies from the area.
He said you should put a penny in the bag to get the best results. A lady in
our Roundtable group who runs a horse breeding farm did this in her stable
last summer and noticed a markedly reduced number of flies in the area.
Strangely enough, while in Egypt at the Temple of Dendera, we rested at a
small outdoor cafe and I noticed one of these clear plastic bags, without a
penny, hanging outside and there were no flies. I asked some of the locals
what it was for and they said it was an old way to get rid of flies!
Even stranger, while Wes and I were talking Saturday night, I noticed an
advertisement on the TV for something called RESCUE, which showed a clear
plastic bag with a funnel nozzle. The claim was you hang this outside and the
flies are attracted to the water where they are trapped and drown.
When the bag is full of flies, you seal it and discard. Wes commented that he
had observed that the efficacy of the water bag was dependent on the ambient
Missed another opportunity for commercialization of weirdness!!!

Stan Meyers was at the conference and I asked him in the hallway if he had
driven his water powered auto to the conference. He said no, that was still a
couple of years away. Seems like the same response given for the past 10
years or so. Also asked about the spark plug that was being promoted a couple
of years ago, which was claimed could be plugged directly into existing motors
to allow them to use water. This was also 'still in development.' The plug
uses the water arc principle researched by Peter Graneau, Richard Hull and
others and I am told a patent on it was issued in 1996 but NOT to Meyers.
The surprise speaker was Dr. William Tiller who gave an amazing presentation
on how geometry and mental energies could be used to produce phenomena.
He has a new book 'Science and Human Transformation', available for $24.95 +
$5.00 Shipping from PAVIOR Publishing, 2910 Camino Diablo #100, Walnut Creek,
CA 94596 or call (510) 295-0786. California residents should also add $2.06
It seemed that most of the conference was based on geometry and how nature
uses it to build or create. Dr. Tiller showed some amazing slides of
interference patterns created by projecting light through one or more holes
which had specific relationships. The images so produced were quite
astounding and are included in the aforementioned book.
Joe Newman also gave a workshop that nearly turned into a shouting melee when
Mike Fisher of ZENERGY began asking questions about Newmans claims of
overunity. Joe got very hot and upset with the questions, prompting several
people attending the workshop to ask Mike to hold his questions or comments
until after the workshop as he was disrupting the session.
Joe had a Minkota electric trolling motor which he claimed was built based on
his stolen technology. He did a demonstration showing how to measure torque
to determine efficiency. I thought his most interesting comment was that the
number of windings is directly proportional to the efficiency.
Newman claims he told the Navy that if they built electric engines that were
not WIDE and short in length, but LONG and narrow in width, extending through
the length of the ship, they could run them on very small amounts of energy,
yet get the full speeds and torque required to drive a battleship.
Moray King discussed the many correlations with annular rings, the use of
toroidal shapes in the production of free energy. These rings can also be
created in plasmas. I found his most interesting observation was that nature
has a slew rate of about 1% from a perfect match.
Moray noted this with regard to Hoagland/Torun tetrahedral geometry and how
many times the energy sites will not be a direct match, but be off by up to
Dale Pond showed his model of the Keely Dynasphere. The unit was not at a
point of operation and some of us were puzzled why Dale would choose such a
complex device to try to reproduce.
During Dale's presentation, the smoke detectors in the hotel kept going off,
sometimes for up to 5 minutes or more, fully ruining his presentation. It was
very strange, wonder who else was speaking at that time? Ya think it was
intentional? Makes for a great conspiracy story either way...
I've never seen Tom Bearden looking so good. He was full of energy, drifting
in and out of his Cajun patter and blazing away with ideas. In our brief
discussion, Tom said he feels that the mistakes in physics have to be
corrected before anything can be practically engineered.
I disagreed, being of the opinion that we need one simple prototype, freely
shared, to ignite the spark that will bring free energy to reality. So Tom is
working diligently to focus attention on the errors so they can be rectified
while we still seek the Holy Grail, Hal Puthoffs one watt O/U prototype.
Dan Nightwolf also did a presentation on crop circles, showing several dozens
of wildly varying and ever more complex patterns. Is it possible these are
some kind of circuit design? There have been claims that ancient technology
is presented in many pictographs and hieroglyphs and that is part of the
reason I went to Egypt. If you've seen the
pictures from Dendera and of the giant
vacuum tubes, then you know what I'm getting at.
It is my opinion that the ancient priests used science to effect 'miracles' as
a demonstration of the power of the deity being promoted. If military forces
tried to coerce the priests to share the information for the purpose of waging
war, and the priests refused, only to be killed, where best to record the
Books, papyrus and similar archival storage methods are subject to theft,
burning, defacement or deterioration by aging. Etching in stone offered a
much greater protection (sadly, we saw that most of the temples had been
defaced), though the hieroglyphs with special information would best be hidden
as found in the crypt under the temple at Dendera. This was only shown to us
after we drew a picture of what we were looking for and the temple 'chiefs'
discussed it, only then did they take us to the door leading to the crypt.
What else is hidden beneath these temples, possibly known to the locals yet
not openly shown to tourists? If I ever go there again, I will make it a
point to have someone who can understand what we seek, speaks the language and
can request that of the 'chiefs', this way they might come up with new
information or material that would help us comprehend some of these ancient
technologies. The whole trip cost about $2000 each and you have to add in the
bribes and grease to make things happen.
I still don't buy the claims that the immense rocks as used at Dashour and
Unas were transported down the Nile by sheer manpower. When our pictures are
developed and scanned in, you'll see why. Reduction of the mass gravity makes
so much more sense.
