Why this "free energy" company has me so very excited
Besides the obvious reasons (it's free! Energy!), the fact that this Irish based company called Steorn could have technology that disproves one of the basic fundamental truths of physics, just gets me giddy. They claim to have basically invented a device that produces more energy than it uses, creating energy out of thin air if you will. One of the basics law of physics states that energy cannot be created, only transformed or converted. From their site:
Steorn’s technology produces free, clean and constant energy. This provides a significant range of benefits, from the convenience of never having to refuel your car or recharge your mobile phone, to a genuine solution to the need for zero emission energy production. It also provides a secure supply of energy, since the components of the technology are readily available.
The technology is in a constant state of development. The company has focused for the past three years on increasing power output and the development of test systems that allow detailed analysis to be performed.
Steorn’s technology appears to violate the ‘Principle of the Conservation of Energy’, considered by many to be the most fundamental principle in our current understanding of the universe. This principle is stated simply as ‘energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it can only change form’.
Steorn is making three claims for its technology:
The technology has a coefficient of performance greater than 100%.
The operation of the technology (i.e. the creation of energy) is not derived from the degradation of its component parts.
There is no identifiable environmental source of the energy (as might be witnessed by a cooling of ambient air temperature).
So why does this get me so giddy? Because if this previously thought impossible technology is in fact doable, why are self evident truths that we, as human beings (i'm going big here!), could also be false? If Steorn is validated through this challenge they've thrown out to the scientific community
, could this open up the possibilities of other previously thought impossible ideas? What else could be possible? Not just for human kind but for yourself, on a personal level. What could one person be capable of doing? That gets me very excited. The very thought of what this company is doing leaves me empowered and very inspired. Can a young parent of three be successful in anything in life? Can I acheive what others assume I can't? But enough about me, can you achieve what your dream?
Now granted, this could be and most likely is a hoax
, but still, could this be physics equivalent to the 4 minute mile
? I'm just excited, empowerd and inspired. The possibilites and worldwide ramifcations are just facinating to me. Man, I hope this pans out to be true.
