(NaturalNews) The free energy movement has some truly brilliant people among its members, but as I just recently discovered, it's also a magnet for some real loony-tunes types who can only be accurately described as "bonkers" when it comes to having any connection with reality.

Case in point: In an article posted yesterday, I explained that if such so-called "over unity" devices actually existed and were put into widespread use, making energy cost essentially zero, the application of all that free energy would cause a tremendous problem with the creation of enormous quantities of physical heat that physically warm the planet.

Little did I know this irrefutable and obvious observation would be considered outrageous by some of the free energy kooks who live in Bonkersville. As I have since been informed, free energy is a magical substance that magically powers all devices -- motors, compressors, electronics and even heaters -- without producing any heat whatsoever.

Wow, I never knew that. Double wow.

My instant re-education into the world of made-up physics

I am extremely happy to have now learned this because apparently I have been clinging to the absurd idea that using electricity to drive motors, electronics, electric vehicles and light bulbs always produces heat. Thank goodness I have now been properly "educated" into the magical fairy tale world of free energy physics where all heat is dissipated by willpower alone, requiring no actual adherence to the laws of thermodynamics.

I'm being a bit snarky in this treatment, of course, because it's just so damn amusing to see people try to argue that powering electric motors with free energy -- as opposed to coal energy -- magically makes those motors generate zero heat. Imagine the thought process necessary to arrive at such a conclusion, if you can. What these kooks are asserting is that the electricity remembers how it was generated and thereby allows itself to be consumed in a way that suspends the laws of physics!

If you're wondering why this is so funny, consider the real facts of physical reality: Any time you use electrical energy for an application, you generate heat. This is true for electronics (which is why you have to cool the CPU of your computer), motors, plasma TVs, toaster ovens and any mechanical system that runs on electricity. It's even true for air conditioners which generate far more heat (out the back) than cooling (in the front).

The very process of using electricity results in the generation of heat, almost by definition. That anyone would even argue with this is almost a full-blown comedy all by itself. That some people would seriously try to argue that free-energy-generated electricity is somehow qualitatively different than hydro-generated, coal-generated or nuclear-generated electricity borders on clinical insanity. Yet that's what these people are asserting.

Logic forces me to agree with conventional physics on this point

You may find this interesting, but I'm going to have to stand my ground with the conventional physicists on this point. Perhaps it's all my recent training in the atomic spectroscopy lab where I run elemental analysis via a plasma torch... but somehow I find myself having to stick with the physicists on all this while rejecting the kind of delusional thinking that mirrors the cognitive wishiwashyness of unicorns, Leprechauns and tooth fairies.

In fact, I've decided to publish a remarkable offer to the free energy community: I'll give anyone one billion dollars -- yes, $1 billion -- if they can show me a real-world application motor, compressor or electronic circuit that doesn't generate heat when consuming power and producing work. I'll up the ante to one trillion dollars if you can power it with a free energy device that actually works. Where will I get one trillion dollars? No problem, I'll snarf it right out of the zero point energy field... the same place where all the power comes from that magically powers the motors that magically don't generate heat when in use, I've been sternly informed.

But why use motors at all? If we're just going to invoke magic for all this, why not just have magical motors that don't even need power? Why not just trade in our cars for flying carpets? After all, if we're going to invoke magic at one level of this, why not just go all-in and plunge headfirst into the world of genie bottles and mutant superpowers and exotic alien technologies that need no explanation at all?

A quick primer on power, work and thermodynamics

Now, for those who prefer to live in reality, here's an important reminder of how things actually work: The use of electrical energy for any real-world application ALWAYS results in the creation of heat. Charging a battery generates heat. Running a washing machine generates heat. Simply moving your own hand in the air generates heat from friction with air molecules. Even transmitting electricity across copper wires generates heat. Running a freezer generates heat, too, and if you don't believe me, place a temperature along the back of the freezer and you'll discover something astonishing -- it's HOT back there!

A person educated in superconductors might argue that transmitting electricity through superconducters at extremely low temperatures can be done without any appreciable generation of heat, but the only way you can support those superconductors is with massive electric motors (compressors) that generate enormous quantities of heat as a side effect of producing extreme cooling effects on the target matter so that the experiment can be run in the first place. Even if you say this experiment is conducted in outer space, you still have to get there first, and I doubt you can launch anything into high orbit without generating some heat in the process.

In the real world, any time you consume electricity to accomplish something -- with a motor, a circuit, a light bulb, a compressor and so on -- you inevitably generate heat. This is physics 101. I'm almost rolling on the floor laughing at the idea that this assertion was not understood by many people in the free energy movement. Many of them apparently need to go back to school and learn the basics before they hope to channel energy into our world from tiny curled-up dimensions. Or maybe they just need more Dilithium Crystals, Scotty!

There's no such thing as free energy, technically speaking

Now, it's also physics 101 that you can't get energy from nothing. The more high-level free energy advocates of course fully understand this, and they rightly describe their devices as potentially "channeling" energy from other sources, such as the zero point energy "field" that coexists with our physical universe.

Even they will tell you there's no such thing as "free" energy. It has to come from somewhere. In the same sense, solar panels could be described as "free energy" devices even though they are channeling solar energy into electrical current. (During the daytime, at least.)

Theoretically, then, so-called "free energy" technology may very well be developed one day. We would be shortsighted to proclaim it can never exist, because obviously a lot of new technologies are discovered or created that once seemed like magic. My simple point which apparently flew right over the heads of many free energy people is that once you start channeling all that energy from another dimension into our three-dimensional space here on planet Earth, you will inevitably produce a tremendous amount of excess heat from the application of that power in motors, electronic circuits, and other devices that turn energy into work.

That's all I was asserting, and yet even that simple, obvious point was just too much for these people. Sometimes I feel like I'm trying to teach calculus to kindergarteners... know what I mean?

Some people strangely thought I was claiming that the generation of free energy itself would produce heat. Nonsense. What I really asserted is that the use of free energy -- through motors, circuits, electronics, compressors and so on -- would generate heat, which it does. Again, I'm holding a cool trillion dollars in my right front pocket (don't worry, my pocket extends into the multiverse) for anyone who can prove me wrong on this point, and I very much doubt there will be any takers.

Interestingly, I do believe so-called free energy technology is achievable. Otherwise I wouldn't bother warning about its dangers. But I'm now more certain than ever that we have nothing to worry about in terms of people actually inventing anything that works anytime soon. Because dreaming up nonsense in fairytale land doesn't count, nor does posting fake Youtube videos that claim to show over-unity devices but actually consist of motors powered by hidden extension cords.

Wanna buy a gold transmutation factory?

When I lived in Ecuador, an American living in a nearby town claimed he had invented a gold transmutation device and offered to sell me the plans for a "mere $10,000."

"Wow," I told him. "How much gold can it make in one day?"

He told me it could make around 10 ounces of gold a day, as long as you fed it seawater. For those keeping track here, seawater is pretty cheap. Gold isn't.

"So I can earn back the full investment of $10,000 in just one day of using the machine?" I asked.

"Yes," he said, and urged me to wire the money immediately. He needed the $10,000 right away.

Of course I had to ask him the obvious question: "So why do you need my $10,000 if you could generate that much gold yourself in the next 24 hours?"

Stumped...

He never really came up with a good answer for this, but he did ramble on with a lot of the same pseudoscience junk language I see reflected in some of the more cognitively detached members of the free energy movement. Transmutation, alchemy and free energy all seem to run in the same circles, you see, for obvious reasons: 99% of what you hear in these circles is utter nonsense spewed forth by people who probably need to be diagnosed with diarrhea of the mouth.

Needless to say, I never sent the guy $10,000, and I never heard any big news about some billionaire American who discovered a mountain of gold in Ecuador. The guy's "invention" -- like nearly everything you hear out of the free energy movement -- is total bunk. Mostly what you hear from these circles is a collection of insane ramblings from people who ate way too many shrooms and now can't differentiate between fantasy land and reality.

Seriously. There's a hallucinogenic drug habit story behind almost every loony inventor that claims to have overthrown the laws of physics. Many of these people literally believe that what they THINK becomes real because they think it. Read that again so it sinks in. In their minds, there is no differentiation between the things they imagine versus things that exist in the real world.

So the guy who wanted me to buy his $10,000 gold transmutation device wasn't really lying about it, you see. In his mind, it was very real. And if you take enough magical mushrooms, you'll find yourself sitting on a pot of gold, too, surrounded by free energy motors that are magically powered from an alternate universe while producing zero heat.

If the motors stop running, just eat more shrooms to perpetuate the motion a little longer.
