Project Ixion is a clean energy generator, presently in its development stage. The aim is to produce a functional EMRP shield which can be implemented in the machine for the direct conversion of dynamic EMRP to rotational motion. Apart from its main bearings, there are no moving parts, no pistons, no operational noise, and can be scaled up to any power levels required for today's energy needs.
The following extract is taken from "The Problem of Increasing Human Energy" in Century Illustrated Magazine, June 1900 by Nikola Tesla.
It is possible, and even probable, that there will be, in time, other resources of energy opened up, of which we have no knowledge now. We may even find ways of applying forces such as magnetism or gravity for driving machinery without using any other means. Such realizations, though highly improbable, are not impossible. An example will best convey an idea of what we can hope to attain and what we can never attain. Imagine a disk of some homogeneous material turned perfectly true and arranged to turn in frictionless bearings on a horizontal shaft above the ground. This disk, being under the above conditions perfectly balanced, would rest in any position. Now, it is possible that we may learn how to make such a disk rotate continuously and perform work by the force of gravity without any further effort on our part; but it is perfectly impossible for the disk to turn and to do work without any force from the outside. If it could do so, it would be what is designated scientifically as a "perpetuum mobile," a machine creating its own motive power. To make the disk rotate by the force of gravity we have only to invent a screen against this force. By such a screen we could prevent this force from acting on one half of the disk, and the rotation of the latter would follow. At least, we cannot deny such a possibility until we know exactly the nature of the force of gravity. Suppose that this force were due to a movement comparable to that of a stream of air passing from above toward the center of the earth. The effect of such a stream upon both halves of the disk would be equal, and the latter would not rotate ordinarily; but if one half should be guarded by a plate arresting the movement, then it would turn.
A Departure from known methods - Possibility of a 'self acting' engine or machine, inanimate, yet capable, like a living being, of deriving energy from the medium - the ideal way of obtaining motive power.
EMRP theory has defined my departure. Project Ixion will be the first (scientifically documented and demonstrated) self acting motive engine.
This is no perpetual motion or overunity device. The aimed features of the final engine are:
Would this technology upset our civilization? Tesla has already answered this question for us at the press conference honouring his 77th birthday in 1933. There he declared that electric power was everywhere present in unlimited quantities and could drive the worlds machinery without the need of coal, oil, gas, or any other fuels. A reporter asked if the sudden introduction of his principle wouldn't upset the present economic system, he replied: 'It is badly upset already.' And we fully agree, without this invention, our system can only get worse. He also wrote: 'No matter what we attempt to do, no matter to what fields we turn our efforts, we are dependent on power. We have to evolve means of obtaining energy from stores which are forever inexhaustible, to perfect methods which do not imply consumption and waste of any material whatever. If we use fuel to get our power, we are living on our capital and exhausting it rapidly. This method is barbarous and wantonly wasteful and will have to be stopped in the interest of coming generations...War cannot be avoided until the physical cause for its recurrence is removed and this, in the last analysis, is the vast extent of the planet on which we live.'
Is this too good to be possible? I don't think so. The engine taps energy from the most fundamental nature of existence, which is space time fabric itself. Two locations having different ratios of time per unit space create an energy gradient, and thus a potential to perform work. We shall hopefully be able to complete this project by end of 2012 and we are presently very excited with preliminary test results which we consider to be our biggest achievement. Research work and experimental work are being done in parallel, and during the past years, many plans had to be binned, to be replaced by new ideas and hardware. Anyway, we have done our best to re-use most of the materials from one stage to the other. Our validation experiments were a total success. The goal of being able to present a large scale engine and not just a simple validation experiment is that of avoiding such a potentially good idea to be discounted for a toy application.
