Quite a frustrating series of comments. I shall
preface with the comment that I am 45 years of age and
have been involved in this field since my teens.
Over that period of time, I have spent thousands of
hours and tens of thousands of dollars, not to mention
phone calls, letters and emails with people all around
the world, plus attending and speaking at conferences.
So I have 'some' idea of what gives and what doesn't
in the alternative and orthodox science arena. I
spend a great deal of MY time, MY money and MY effort
in this field as well as clearly identifying myself in
emails as well as quite publicly without need of
handles or codenames as I have nothing to hide.
I have not sought or required money from people except
to offer an avenue for contributions to support the
website and/or KeelyNet activities...I work full time
to EARN my own living, 40+ hours per week for a
computer services company and I will NOT EVER require
or solicit anyone to support me like some do in this
field. No books, no videotapes, no speaking at
conferences for a fee, no selling inside info and
above all NO SCAMS.

Shall we analyze this grandiose term of 'fiduciary
responsibility' which has dual disparate meanings?
fiduciary \Fi*du"ci*a*ry\, n. 1. One who holds a thing
in trust for another; a trustee. - Instrumental to the
conveying God's blessing upon those whose fiduciaries
I hold NOTHING in trust for ANYONE ELSE nor have I
EVER claimed to. I am an agnostic since about 11
years of age so the term God means nothing to me
fiduciary adj : relating to or of the nature of a
legal trust (i.e. the holding of something in trust
for another); "a fiduciary contract" "in a fiduciary
capacity" "fiducial power" [syn: fiducial] n : a
person who holds assets in trust for a beneficiary;
"it is illegal for a fiduciary to misappropriate money
for personal gain"
Neither I or KeelyNet are remotely a legal trust.
KeelyNet has no assets and therefore no money for any
'beneficiaries.' Nor do I come to think of it..<g>..
So, your choice of terms, though sounding quite grand,
has no bearing whatsoever on KeelyNet or myself. I am
responsible TO NO ONE but myself which means I can
speak my mind, (as can anyone on the net without
bowing to any 'sponsor' or company or government
agency who pays me to work to their benefit.

The KeelyNet discussion list is a PRIVATE forum
specifically created to discuss such matters and in no
way ever implied or stated that KeelyNet or I were
responsibile to anyone.

The entire purpose of April Fools is to FOOL people
into believing something by making it so believable
that the reader takes it at face value. I
intentionally presented it three days early because of
net time and laced it with deplorably irrational
comments as triggers for those who don't swallow every
hair brained claim that comes along.
April fool, one who is sportively imposed upon by
others on the first day of April.
On reflection, I SHOULD have waited and POSTED IT on
April 1st precisely, regardless of net time.

Exactly the point, people want to believe so badly,
they don't care where fantastic news COMES FROM, just
as long as they can BELIEVE....gullibility is a
disease we all suffer, which I have been caught up
with and which was the point of the hoax.
As well at those who want to be first to capitalize on
what is FREELY GIVEN and I mean by RIPPING IT OFF
which is a major hazard in this entire field, causing
inventors to be very suspicious of releasing ANYTHING
about their discovery.

The ONE PERSON....geez, sounds like a religion,
something I never sought, never claimed (except once
in jest about the Church of the Divine Resonance or
some such blather)...a bit too fixated methinks. I am
not nor will I EVER BE, the 'one person'.

Authority figure? Sorry, but I sent out my uniform
with all my badges and it never came back, so I am not
nor was I ever, nor did I ever CLAIM to be an
authority figure...your projections, not my reality.

Scorn sensitive souls?????? They are certainly in the
wrong area of investigation as free energy and
levitation BEGS for scorn, ridicule and outright
DERISION from anyone when you start talking about free
energy or antigravity.....go to a mall, pick 10 people
at random and ask them if they 'believe' in free
energy or antigravity, try to engage them in a
discussion and watch how they respond.

Not to ridicule but to question with GREAT AMAZEMENT.
Feel their way? That's how discoveries are made?
I am sure a lot of inventors and discoverers would be
highly incensed if you told them their discovery was
completely by accident or serendipitously.
serendipity n : accidental sagacity; the faculty of
making fortunate discoveries of things you were not
Discoveries are made by hopefully astute observation,
hypothesis and EXPERIMENT, not by feeling.
> No one was more volatile than Nikola Tesla,
IMO, Tesla was borderline unbalanced, a plagiarist and
extremely egocentric. The more he was in the news and
being talked about, the happier he was. Wipe and
count, that is pure OCD brought on by some trauma or
in my opinion, GUILT for his theft of ideas, scared to
death someone IN HIS TIME WOULD REALIZE he had lifted
the work of others, applied their DISCOVERIES to
electrical current and claimed it totally as his own.
plagiarist \Pla"gia*rist\, n. One who plagiarizes; or
purloins the words, writings, or ideas of another, and
passes them off as his own; a literary thief; a

nothing to do with sensitivity. And I have been

don't generally quote the comment) that Leedskalnin

unknown to me) and had stolen most of his knowledge
from the discoveries of that scientist. He tinkered
and experimented with what he remembered and from that
sprang Coral Castle.

I may but I think I will not. As I prefaced this, I
have been in this field for many, many years, always
seeking that one device, not finding it YET and
absorbing, correlating and reposting what I find that
I believe to be of use, that others might have access
tot he same information and one day yield new
In that time I have come across many who tried to drag
me or KeelyNet into their schemes, most of the time
without an initial indication of scam, though with
research or time passing, it turned out to be just
that. As a result, I am quite aware of and on guard
of anyone who;
1) subscribes yet does not participate in dialogue
or posting of ANY positive, relevant information
2) remains in the background, offering nothing but
ABSORBING ALL, especially that which might have
commercial viability or can be lifted for
duplication and profit
3) always seeks info yet returns none either in
private emails or as questions to the list
4) makes claims or offers of inside information yet
never reveals anything of use or able to be
duplicated, tested and proven
5) dances on the edges with snips and jibes trying
to impugn or castigate others, either ideas or
actions, yet they make no effort OF THEIR OWN
either by spending THEIR money, THEIR time or
THEIR efforts to setup their own website, their
own discussion list or otherwise to post their
I've been there, I have been spammed and deflected
more than anyone here wants to remotely hear about. I
note who participates and what level of knowledge they
appear to possess...these I try to stay abreast of and
in touch with, privately and in the event that one
miraculous circuit or technology will come through, so
that THIS SPECIAL GROUP can be given the FIRST
opportunity to test and verify it.
What makes them special? Because they HAVE SHARED and
shown their knowledge of some of the intricacies of
There is more than one group and generally in
different areas. It is our hope that once we have
achieved this successful duplication and proven it to
our gestalt, then it will be posted as free and true.
And finally, I long ago recognized the presence of
sponges and people who's only interest is for their
own personal gain...that is unfortunate but the way of
the world. This list has about 300 people, do a search
on how many actually participate. Granted, many just
haven't found anything to say YET, but I have NO
DOUBT, based on my many past experieces that wolves
are in the fold..<g>...not much can be done about it.
One thing I dearly hope for, that an 'occasional
outrage' (as my hero Mark Twain says) will
INTENTIONALLY misdirect the sponges to think there is
nothing, nor will there ever be anything useful (as in
having a chance of capitalization).
They will leave in disgust. In time, the wonder will
be found, it will be posted, it will be duplicated all
over the world. By the time the sponges (individuals,
companies, governments) realize what has happened, the
basic Proof of Principle will have long since been
duplicated and BY THEN many others will be working on
improving its operation.
IMO, sensitives aren't remotely the answer and without
a sense of humor, life would be so boring that I would
rather not be involved...if I'm there, you can bet
there will be some humor, partly as a pressure
release, partly as a get a laugh/life hint.
Thanks for your concerns but I don't agree with ANY OF
THEM and I fully plan to leave bruises..<g>..and
