Vanguard Sciences (sponsor of KeelyNet) was organized in December of
1986 in Dallas, Texas as an alternative means of communication with
regard to the more science-based relationships of metaphysics and the
paranormal. Kay West suggested the name (Vanguard) after much
deliberation among a group of friends meeting at Ron and Kays house.
The spelling was at one time Vangard, originally intended to prevent
any collision with other VangUards (with a U). (Since 1995, we have
changed to Vanguard.) Our original intent was to present public
presentations in the form of lectures and workshops, perform basic
research and practical development in various scientific and pseudo-scientific
disciplines and provide regular meetings for anyone seeking to be
actively involved in the study of the more unusual aspects of science.
For our first year, 1987, we sponsored a monthly lecture on a variety
of topics. These lectures involved local and outside speakers who
covered such topics as pyramids, dowsing, acupuncture,
electromagnetic healing, Keely, alchemy, sonics in relation to
planetary and astrological influences and other diverse subjects.
Also during that first year, in conversations over the years with my
friend and collaborator Dale Pond, editor and publisher of the
Journal of Sympathetic Vibratory Physics (the Keely newsletter), we
had discussed sponsoring a Symposium on the work of John Keely. I had
been studying the claims of Keely since the late 1960's and Dale had
been actively involved since 1985. We both felt that a gathering of
people interested in Keely was overdue by about one hundred years. At
the time we originally discussed this, Dale was living in Virginia.
By 1988, he was in process of moving back to his home in Colorado
Springs, Colorado. I also made the decision to take on most of the
financial and organizational responsibilities of the First Annual
International Keely Symposium to be held in the Dallas area. Dale
arranged for the speakers and some advertising while I organized
local and other advertising, the location of the symposium, the
speakers hotel, mementos and the lunch.
The 1st Keely Symposium was held on August 1st, 1987 at the
Richardson Civic Center. The event was covered by Dennis Stacy, a
contributor and now writer for OMNI magazine. The story on the Keely
Symposium did not appear until the 1988 April issue.
I had been using BBSes for a couple of years and it struck me as the perfect way to disseminate information
without having to always be camped out at photocopiers to share with friends. By using a BBS, anyone could link up
and download whatever they wished.
We obviously needed a space in order to build up a workshop. Lectures were fine for
exchanging ideas but resulted in little or no practical
implementation. For that purpose, I decided to buy a house. We also
needed some form of mass communication ability to spread the word on
Keely and our interests. Thus, the idea for KeelyNet was born.
So for months prior to and after the Keelynet Symposium I had been working on the Keelynet BBS, hand typing over
6MB of text files and scanning images so that when we went 'live' we would have an archive ready for any callers. And testing the Wildcat software to make sure there were no bugs.
It was at the 1st Keelynet Symposium where I first announced the Keelynet BBS was under construction and should be up in a few months once I was satisfied with it.
The Keelynet BBS formally went online on July 15th, 1988 and slowly gained a membership and very active, multi-doored
discussion group. As people proved their sincerity and built trust, they were given access to higher levels.
Our second year
led us to an opportunity to lease an educational program from the
Denver Planetarium on Tesla which we felt might allow us to generate
sufficient capital to establish a trust fund. The interest from the
trust would be used to finance our activities. We called the program,
ZAP DALLAS. It made use of a 6 foot , 2.3 million volt Tesla coil
capable of generating electrical discharges up to 12 feet in length.
2.3 million volt Tesla coil
'Electric Fingers' demonstration
With the help of Dale Pond, we brought the Tesla equipment from
Denver to Dallas after leasing a movie theater in Garland as our
public display location. We removed several rows of seats in order to
build a custom stage for the Tesla demonstrations. These one hour
demonstrations involved a running monologue of Teslas' life and
accomplishments paralleled by experiments to demonstrate various
Tesla coil effects. The effects ranged from simple 12-15 foot
discharges to the use of a Faraday cage with a person inside,
protected by the cage. Our grand finale involved our demonstrator
(MR. ZAP - Decker) standing on a special glass table which was
connected to the Tesla coil output. We then sent a reduced output on
the order of 900,000 VAC over his body to stream off the hands,
tongue or any other pointed member. Needless to say, people were
fascinated by the effects, especially the passing of electricity over
a live body.
We ran the program for the month of March with the little advertising
we could afford. Our attendance totalled about 500 people during that
period. We lost out miserably although many people kept coming back
with other friends, including a following of engineers from Texas
Instruments and the fire marshals and city officials of Garland who
always insisted on a free show to check out the 'safety' aspects.
Many of our most ardent patrons were engineer/science types who
appreciated the work which such a project entailed After packing up
the ZAP DALLAS theater location, we found that OMNI magazine had
published an article in the April 88' issue on Tesla, but which could
have benefitted greatly by mentioning our ZAP program. Our final
opportunity came from an invitation by TEXAS ELECTRIC (the local
power company) to serve as their exhibit for the 28th Annual Texas
Energy Science Symposium for High Schools at the University of Texas
at Austin. We asked only $300 to cover expenses because we were
ecstatic over the opportunity to demonstrate such a program for
members of formal educational institutions, opening their minds to a
wide range of alternative science information which is not taught in
our schools or universities..
We packed up the equipment and drove to Austin on Tuesday, June 7,
1988. On arrival Dr. Austin and Dr. Klein assisted us in the setup of
our equipment in a medical auditorium which had a capacity of 450
people. On testing the equipment, the humidity must have been near
perfect as we got more than the full discharge length of 12 feet. Dr.
Austin and Dr.Klein were thinking the unit would be small with
discharges on the order of 4 to 8 feet. On seeing this test, Dr.
Austin was quite excited and wanted to purchase one for the UTA
Physics Department. The show began at 7:30 and was scheduled to end
at 8:30, our standard one hour program. The room was packed and
people were standing against the walls and doors. Later estimates by
our UT sponsors said the room probably contained 500 people, more
than they had ever seen in any of their programs in this room. During
the show, we garnered extended applause and questions.
The enthusiasm of the people induced us to perform extra experiments
for their participation which led to a prolonged question/answer
session. The show was finally over at 10:00 PM. Two and one half
hours on Tesla and the more unusual aspects of science. On packing up
the next day, many people who we did not know, insisted on patting us
on the back or shaking our hands to congratulate us on the show.
Later, a June 29th letter from Dr. Dale Klein states;
"The responses we have received regarding your
presentation have been very favorable. I am certain that your
comments inspired these future scientists and engineers. Thank you
for a fine presentation."
Our staff at our greatest moment were Jerry Decker, Ron Barker, Chuck
Henderson and Wayne Fowler. Wayne is a professional actor who is
interested in the Vanguard Sciences and who served as our narrator.
Jerry is founder, owner and Director, Ron is the volunteer Business
Manager and Chuck is the volunteer Secretary. After the return of the
Tesla equipment to Denver in the month of December 1988, we decided
to redefine our goals and means of achievement.
On attending lectures and Conferences both locally in other states,
we have made many interesting contacts and information exchanges.
From these exchanges, we see many overlapping fields of study which
need to be made freely available to all interested parties. Our
present intentions involve the support and continuing expansion of
the KeelyNet system and contact network, the buildup of a workshop
for experimentation including documentation of our work in the form
of videotapes or textual descriptions capable of being listed on
KeelyNet or otherwise distributed. We have come to realize over the
past few years that there is a problem which should influence all
experimentation. That is the problem of ecology and global warming.
We also meet many people working on health related activities. If the
planet dies or is crippled, health will not matter. In the very near
future (projections range from 10 to 20 years MAX), you can not step
outside without a head to toe covering, special sunglasses to reduce
UV to the eyes and probably breathing apparatus. Drought will cause
massive famine, reduction in public services including energy and
petroleum products. Air conditioning failures from no power, no gas
or electricity for cooking when you can find edible food.
A critical juncture is approaching and we must all take steps to slow
it, prevent it or have the option of escaping from it. How can we do
this? Focus our research on FREE ENERGY and LEVITATION. Keely is one
of the ways. We have collected much documentation on many possible
modalities and techniques. It is time to spread the word and ACTIVELY
WORK for practical implementations. For that reason, Vanguard
Sciences will actively work on FREE ENERGY devices as well as
LEVITATION. THE KeelyNet system and BBS will serve as a means of
distributing our collection of information to the widest possible
audience at the least possible cost. We also mail out documentation
to people whom we know to be distributors and/or networkers for this
type of information. Our permanent address is: Vanguard
Sciences/KeelyNet, PO BOX 870716, Mesquite, TX, 75187 My home phone
We welcome any comments, suggestions, information, equipment for
experimentation or financial support. Thank you for your interest.
The following is an Update
on April 10, 1990
Recent developments require that we further focus our goals on the
following specific areas. The purpose for the establishment of
KeelyNet is to allow the rapid and free exchange of information
relating to :
1) free energy technologies
2) anti-gravity technologies and techniques
3) unusual methods of ecology
4) alternative health systems including anti-aging
5) UFOs, what are they, can we duplicate them
6) free release of the work of John Keely covering
7) contacts and notices for symposia & conferences
8) future conferences on biology, ecology, free
energy, anti-grav and others of interest
We of VANGUARD SCIENCES realize that our planet is rapidly coming to
a point of no return and that ONLY THROUGH THE FREE EXCHANGE of
information relating to the above topics, especially free energy,
anti-grav, ecology and health will we survive as the race of Man. Our
primary focus is therefore on these topics with a particular emphasis
on the work of John Worrell Keely in the area of Vibrational Physics.
We believe that the computer is the ideal means to efficiently
distribute information on the above topics. We also believe that the
three most destructive modes of thought can be reduced to :
GREED - POWER and EGO.
For these reasons, we openly share all information that we have with
all interested parties unless otherwise restricted by the donors of
sensitive information. Responsibilty for the use or abuse of such
information inevitably falls on the user. We are currently gathering
information which will point to a hybridized system for sustaining a
HOME! This system will include the following :
1) A free energy or over-unity device capable of providing a
minimum of 10 KW of electrical energy per unit with the least
high-tech requirements possible
2) A device for purifying water and air for use in homes
3) A device for condensing water directly from the air with cool
air as a byproduct
4) Advanced hydroponic and agricultural techniques for growing the
greatest quantity and quality of food crops in the least space and
with the least attention
5) Techniques for increasing the size and quality of meat sources
such as fowl, beef, pork and fish and of all edible plants in the
form of vegetables and fruits
6) More efficient, yet palatable and health sustaining food
sources which do not require the destruction of lower life forms
including plants and animals
7) Weather modification techniques (centralized) to minimize
drought, freezing and wind induced damage
8) Techniques for generating light, heat and motor power which are
not necessarily electrically driven
9) Health technologies which will restore an organism to its
optimal energy and functions and which can be located in the home for
use as required
10) Transportation techniques which take advantage of flight by
using levitation brought about by magnetic, sonic, electric or air
The above principles must be non-polluting, safe for humans in
proximity with such technologies and as low-tech as possible.
following is an Update on April 25, 1992
Despite our intentions to maintain a low profile, we have now been
the subject of at least two magazine articles (to our knowledge.) One
was the December 91' SPY magazine, the latest was a short article in
the April 92' Boardwatch magazine ( devoted to computer bulletin
boards ), both national publications. One of the articles begins with
"Forget the Time/Life Book Series, give KeelyNet a call and you
can generate several books of your own."
From our friends down in Australia, many of our files have been
distributed throughout that country and in fact some were picked up
by the Australian company - BEYOND 2000, which airs on the Discovery
channel. They sent a letter complimenting us on what they had seen to
date and said just from that limited information they could generate
2 years of shows for BEYOND 2000! In fact, one of our files led to
the recent airing of an interview and demonstration with Sandy Kidd,
inventor of a Gyroscopic Levitation System. We currently have that
video for study. In addition, they sent a check for the purchase of
our complete disk set of text files which we offered on a very
limited request only basis beginning in 1991. This was to reduce
phone costs to our associates from having to dial up and download all
our files. We conservatively estimate such an operation would cost at
least $200 in phone costs alone and our files continue to grow on a
And for 1992, we have established relations with Mr. Per Lindgren,
sysop of the GAS STATION in Gaevle, Sweden. He asked to become the
official Eastern European KeelyNet Affiliate and we have agreed to
exchange files on a regular basis. It currently costs $1 per minute
to link with Sweden. This opens up entire new vistas since the
dissolution of the Soviet Union has allowed many scientists and
researchers to speak on their projects. Per has graciously
volunteered to translate our files into Scandinavian and Russian, as
well as translating their files into English which will be mailed to
us. This arrangement offers tremendous new avenues of exploration for
all of us. We currently have an image capture board, video
duplication and editing/enhancement abilities, image enhancement
abilities, a new FAX board for the computer and will soon have a 9600
BAUD modem courtesy of Mr. Guy Resh. In addition, we have received
some fascinating videos as well as text documents which will continue
to be added to KeelyNet for public distribution to those wishing to
keep up on what is going on in the various fields as encompassed by KeelyNet.
Our contacts have spread considerably over the past two years and we
have learned much from those who have so graciously shared their own
particular stash of information as well as some of their research
findings. On July 15, 1992, KeelyNet will celebrate its 3rd
Anniversary since it went online in 1988. We consider ourselves
fortunate to have had the opportunity to converse and exchange
information with so many excellent minds.
The following is an Update
on November 18, 1992
In August, we purchased a full page scanner that is intended to allow
us to scan in black and white images such as patents and circuit
diagrams. It can scan 64 grey scale and has a 50 page sheet feeder.
One of our users sent us OCR software to allow us to directly scan in
and translate documents into ASCII useable text files. We also have
another system we are working on which will have about 106 MB of free
disk space. It will run the newer WILDCAT 3 software and will have 22
file sections and 13 conference areas.
As of November 16th, we have the 9600 modem online and functioning at
9600 BAUD. However, we are "fine-tuning" the initialization
codes to allow the maximum connection of 14,400 bps. When the new
system is ready, the 9600 modem will be connected to it also. It is
quite amazing to watch the transfer of large amounts of data at such
high rates of speed. I watched as about 300KB of files were sent in
less than 6 minutes...incredible. At this rate, all of our files
could be completely downloaded in about two and a half hours. Ron has
come up with some great programs which allow image enhancement as
well as made a contact who let us scan in the KEELY lab and equipment
pictures as high resolution images. These will be listed on the new
All KeelyNet text files have always been free to everyone, however
since we have been acquiring new equipment to further expand our
system and abilities. Recently (began October 1992), we began having
local monthly Roundtable meetings for interested individuals to
discuss various subjects and exchange information. We have
intentionally kept these meetings small so that they would not turn
into a mob. So far, we have had two meetings ranging in size from 24
to 28. We plan to continue these monthly meetings on a regular basis
for the express purpose of exchanging information and ideas.
1992 to 1999
I have been remiss updating this for the past 7 years,
just forgot about it. Toward the end of 1995, we had a hard drive
crash on the BBS. By that time, Bill Beaty had coerced me to at least
TRY the InterNet. Initially I signed on as a user with Netcom. It was
interesting but I was often disappointed with the diatribes and
useless information and negative opinions posted in the various newsgroups.
We have every intent to remain stable, active and
involved in the fields of alternative science and not just go quietly
into the night as so many have in the past and present. Most of this
is because of discord in the membership, on the part of the
organizers, or because they revolve primarily around making money .
By 1996, I decided it was time to start a KeelyNet
website, though very appreciative of the courtesy of Bill Beaty, Rene
Mueller and David Jonsson as the KeelyNet mirrors. By this time, a
presence was established for KeelyNet since all the files had
headers. The keelynet.com domain name was purchased and a site was
setup with Flash.Net as the virtual host provider. Since that time
the website has been our primary method of communication and
dialogue. As of April 1999, we have moved from Flash.Net to
Lyghtforce.com which is on Dan Yorks server because of a
better price and more space.
Update as of June 1, 2005
This page was last updated way back in 2001, when I packed up everything and moved down to central Mexico where I have lived now for almost 4 years, with occasional trips to the states to see friends, family and take care of business.
For some 23 years, I worked in three different photo-finishing labs running the Technical Support department. During that time I was exposed to chemicals which I blame for damaging my spleen and causing it to become enlarged. The spleen kills off old red blood cells among other functions, so when it is enlarged, it kills off many more red cells than it should, leaving the subject tired and needing sleep. That was my problem.
After 5 doctors, I was sent to a hemotologist who found an enlarged spleen to be the problem. My options were to have it removed and become susceptible to opportunistic infections where my only recourse was to take antibiotics, or take massive doses of cortisone. Either option would eventually damage other organs. Or I could just live with it. I chose to live with being tired and needing more sleep than normal but was always looking for something that might help my non life-threatening condition.
My red cell count when I was first tested was 7.9 and the doctor said I should not have enough energy to even be walking around. The normal red cell count for a healthy male is 12 to 16 according to the medical staff I consulted. They put me on massive doses of iron and folic acid which in the next test about a month later, only increased my count to 8.1.
That was their best and they expressed regret that they could not do more. That was in October of 2000. In the summer of 2001, we had the KeelyNet Conference and Lee loaned me one of his machines. I used it for approximately 3 months, with a 3 X 4 foot aluminum wirescreen under my mattress pad and the machine running unnoticed under my bed, all but forgotten.
In the 3rd month I began having trouble sleeping and would wake up with a lot of energy. I would have to get up to clean the house or do something to dissipate this extra energy so that I could sleep to make it in to work the next day. Finally I realized the only change I had made recently was the Crock machine under my bed, so I disconnected it and over the next 2 days, my sleep pattern was restored.
Around that time, I quit my job for my planned move to Mexico since the hemotologist warned me I was now subject to sudden heart attack. It scared me pretty badly so I decided to make a serious life change. Before I left Dallas for my exploratory trip to Mexico, I went back to the hemotologist to have another red cell count and this time it showed 8.9!!
I had taken NO iron and NO folic acid. The doctor and the nurses came to read this result and were amazed, asking me what I had been doing to cause such an increase when their best was 8.1. I tried to tell them about the Crock machine but all of them put their hands over their ears and said they didn't want to hear about any alternative health machine. So much for that. But I made them give me photocopies of the test from the 8.1 (my last best reading under their guidance) and this new 8.9 using ONLY the Crock machine.
Needless to say, it certainly gave me faith in the machine, I definitely had more energy and this test showed why, I simply had more blood. Now I don't know if the machine is helping to increase my red cell production or if it is healing my spleen. To tell you the truth, I don't CARE because I feel so much better.
Since moving to central Mexico in November of 2001, I have built my own version of the machine which I call the 'MexiStim' and have been using it under my bed with a wirescreen under my mattress pad. The machine is on all the time and sometimes I have to disconnect it due to too much energy preventing me from sleeping.
I have completely changed my diet and lost 4 pants sizes, further benefiting my health. Adding to my success, I also credit not having the temptations of fast food and the stresses of the computer call center job I was working that was adding to my health problems.
My goal here in central Mexico is to build an alternative science research center where the climate is 70-90 degrees year round, land is very reasonable, local labor is $15-$20US a DAY! I soon learned many of the horror stories about Mexico I had read on the Internet simply are not true.
We have many dozens of projects which have commercial potential and need one or more investors or partners to finance these various projects. The returns could be phenomenal and we could do much to quantify so many of the bogus claims in the alternative science arena. That includes many projects relating to free energy, gravity control, claims of health machines and rejuvenation systems. KeelyNet interests and technical information are both wide ranging and prolific in many areas. If you are interested in investing in or discussing this alternative research center, please Email me.
Over this time, I have been constructing and selling the MexiStim which is a version of the 2nd machine Lee Crock used so successfully with over 10,000 people. I have a 3 X 4 foot aluminum screen between a large foam pad and my mattress, so that I am exposed to the energy from the machine anytime I lie down. As reported in my MexiStim article, I believe it has helped me to lose over 70 pounds and reduce from a size 46 to a size 38. Check out the before and after photos on the MexiStim page.
In addition, my cough has gone away, I feel great, have plenty of energy and people say I look 20 years younger, even with my buzzcut which I've preferred for the past year. You know there comes a time when you get tire of thinning hair that you have to mess with all the time, so just CUT IT ALL OFF. You won't regret it and its so much easier to take care of.
Living in Mexico has been fascinating and in some ways disappointed because of thievery and almost no one you can trust. But the gringo community here is about 8,000-12,000 so there is no loss of english speakers, though there are some very strange ones in the mix.
I haven't updated KeelyNet near as much as I used to in the states and am trying to resolve that by making changes which include trying to make it support itself. So many years, I funnelled my own money and time into it, only to see others capitalize on it without ever sharing a thing with KeelyNet. This will change.
My goal is to setup a laboratory/experimental workshop here and I'm working to that end. But it is slow going. All these years and still nothing has come to market in the way of a working free energy or gravity control technology or device. The world has always needed these technologies but with the climate being skewed (screwed) more everyday, it becomes ever more urgent to make them a reality.
This page is about the history of KeelyNet and Vanguard Sciences...ah yes, sorry for the beginnings of another rant...(LOL)...and I know you don't give a flip about me but just so you will know, things are fine, I am healthy, happy, active and I love living in Mexico. The temperature here averages between 70-90 year round except for a couple of cold months. So it is 'garra' time (shorts, teeshirts and tennis shoes) almost all year long!
Hmmm...plans for KeelyNet...well, as you can see, we have had to start selling things that brings in only a trickle of change, but I plan to be offering eBooks and some CDs to try to increase sales. In addition, we really do need to setup a lab and get some of these projects underway, such as the Clem engine but there are many more. To that end, I am talking so far with a potential investor but nothing has come of it yet.
Its really quite simple to fund all this...if a majority of the people who visit KeelyNet, would donate $5-$10 a month, SKIP A MEAL just once a month, that could be something if just 500 people did it. Ranging from $2500 to $5000 a month for projects! Alas, I'm not a good marketing guy so don't have that type of 'charisma' that can convince people to come together for a common purpose.
Churches and politics sure seem to build up money very rapidly, but I don't know the right buttons to push to get people to COMPREHEND why this lab thing is so important. Maybe its just me, though I don't think I'm deluded nor old enough to be senile.
As of June, 2005 I updated the loader part of the KeelyNet site and am working on other pages including some 'new' information that might be of interest.
Despite what some of the flakes and conmen say, KeelyNet is FAR from being inactive OR of fading away, as much as it would delight them to not have us always asking where is THEIR PROOF for the incessant claims they make trying to get your money, but it ain't happening, we plan to become much more active and viable in the near future if its humanly possible without ourselves turning into money grubbers, liars or conmen...that won't happen, I'll shut it all down before it comes to that.
I know a lot of people bust their butt most of their lives trying to keep up, but for me, its not worth it. I don't need new cars, a big, fancy house or the latest designer clothes.
Amazing how your life untangles when you get out of the ratrace loop and just enjoy life. It is not about money or possessions, but about security and experiences. So jump on those synchronicities when they mysteriously appear in your life. You are being tested, take advantage of them and GROW!
Stay Tuned...I know its frustrating after all these years that no one has actively applied any free energy or gravity control to marketed devices we can all use, but it is inevitable in my opinion that one day before we are too old to still marvel at the technology, we WILL have these things in use worldwide.
For Pete's Sake, I'm not promoting that everyone turns into a 'believer', who questions nothing and takes everything spoken or written as FACT...question everything, demand proof, but DO be open to new theories and ideas, especially if there is experimental evidence of an anomaly. If anomalies such as these can be duplicated, it should be possible to scale up the effect to something useful.
So this is my last word for this month......and you will most certainly be updated via KeelyNet and our discussion list WHEN something major breaks that is FOR REAL.
and enjoy life!
