Career opportunities abound in exotic free energy
Though the world economy is tanking in general, cutting-edge free
energy technologies have a rising destiny as illustrated by several emerging
modalities. The industry is ripe with opportunity for entrepreneurs who
have what it takes to see the opportunities and run with them.

I went to the podium near the end of Joel Garbon's presentation at the
Abundant Clean Energy symposium to clarify a key

I woke up around 3:30 am this morning with a strong desire to add a clarification
to something I had written on caption of
and myself standing together at the
podium at the Abundant Clean Energy symposium organized by John Cornett.
All I had said in the caption was: "I went to the podium during Joel
Garbon's presentation to clarify a key point." I hadn't said anything
about what that key point was.
He had been saying that we all work without pay. I needed to correct him, saying
that I've been doing this as my career for 8 years, and while it is a sacrifice,
often requiring donations to get by, I am able to make a living doing this,
supporting a family of six.
I told the audience that I didn't want them thinking that there is no money to
be made in this sector.
A dedicated person can make the leap of faith can make a living in this sector
if they have what it takes:
- In it for the cause, not the money.
- Willing to sacrifice comforts and niceties.
- Willing to go through times of extreme poverty.
- Willing to put up with the ridicule that comes from working in a
"fringe science" arena.
- Willing to put up with the many disappointments that come along, and push
- Putting in 14-hour days, 7 days/week without getting burned out because
you love what you do and are fulfilled by it, having a vision of and hope
for the better world that will come.
- Willing to forego trivialities such as watching inane TV and going to
spectator sporting events (that don't involve friends or family members
- Being assertive in pushing for your dream, seeing opportunities and taking
them, finding needs and filling them.
- Most importantly, there has to be a sense of destiny or mission -- and
inner compass that pushes you in this direction.
I have always believed that free energy is in our destiny (not just for me
personally, but for the planet at this critical juncture in time). The
title of my presentation at the symposium was "Our Free Energy Destiny
Emerging." I made that point that while the economy in general is in
meltdown mode, getting worse and worse; that free energy will emerge (actually
is in process of emerging) as a solution on many levels. It is the next
revolution that will boost the world not only financially, but will empower
people to free themselves from dependence from the (extremely) corrupt
powers that be, who have been engineering the collapse of the free world and
the enslavement of mankind.
2010: Year of Crowning
"Crowning" is when a baby emerges
from the birth canal.

I shared with the audience that last December in our annual New Energy
Movement board of directors meeting, when we were having our closing
"visioning" session, I had the impression and said that "2010
will be known as 'The Year of Crowning', to use a childbirth analogy."
I joked with the audience that I had a photo to include in my PowerPoint
presentation, but when I asked Jeane Manning and Joel (the other presenters at
the evening event) if I should include it, they both gasped and said, "nooo,
that's a bit too much."
The image I had was more graphic than the one shown on the right.
For all these decades, exotic free energy technologies have been in various
stages of gestation, but now we see things materializing. They're not in
the marketplace yet, but we see things being beta tested and even in early
market presentation (e.g. building them one at a time, for much more cost than
they will be when they can be mass produced).
And true to the childbirth analogy, crowning it's not a pretty sight. The
head coming out resembles a walnut emerging from muck. And so it is during
this phase of free energy technology birthing. It's not a pretty
sight. The prototypes are often a hodgepodge of duct tape and bailing
wire, so to speak.
Hey, I just thought of another analogy, using the childbirth comparison.
The phase just prior to crowning is pushing, that was preceded by
transition. During transition, the mother is in her extreme of pain and
exhaustion. She doesn't want anything to do with the dad; she doesn't want
to talk; she is at a breaking point emotionally.
Considering how difficult it is to deal with free energy inventors, using this
analogy helps us understand why. They have been at this for so long, and
they are so tired.
But that baby is coming out. Our job is to help. Or if we are the
inventor, our job is to push. Some mothers don't make it, and some babies
don't make it; but most of the time they're both fine, and soon the euphoria of
birth envelops everyone, forgetting how awful the birthing process was, making
it all worth while.
Examples to Illustrate 2010: Year of Crowning
To support my case about this year being the "year of crowning",
consider some of these headlines from our news
from October and so far in November:
/ OS: Magnet
Magnetic Cogging Device Open Source Project - Several
people are claiming that they have achieved more energy out than in
with a system in which a motor drives one magnet disc that propels a
second, non-touching magnet disc that drives an alternator,
introducing nearly twice as much power as was input. Or is it a matter
of measurement error? (PESWiki; Oct. 5, 2010)
Though the rate of such stories is increasing, there were a number of these
kinds of developments earlier in 2010 as well, which you can see going back
through our news archives. Bear in mind
too, that there are some developments that we have not been permitted to report
on yet. 2010 truly has been the year of crowning.
I've found my niche in this free energy world, being the Free Energy News and
Directory man, supporting vetting of those technologies, and helping network
emerging technologies with the talent needed to take them to the next level.
Free Energy Career Opportunities Galore
As I review the field of exotic free energy technologies, I see a vast number of
career opportunities. Rarely are these in the form of a job listing for
which you need merely apply. Most of them are things you'll need to be
proactive about: invent the job and fill it. An entrepreneurial spirit is
Take a look at our list of the Best
Exotic Free Energy Technologies to get an idea of the technologies that
are percolating close to market readiness. If those are a bit too fringy
for your temperament, you could make a go of the more conventional free energy
technologies such as solar, wind, geothermal, tide, waste to energy,
piezoelectricity, human-powered, and biofuels.
The hardest part will be the start-up phase as you get the thing
launched. There is latency between getting the idea and implementing it to
the point that it generates revenue. And in some cases there will also be
some start-up capital requirements. So part of your entrepreneurial charge
may be composing a thumbnail business plan that you can present to rich friends
and/or family members to get some start-up funding. You could do this
phase on the side while keeping your day job.
One class of job types is providing support for an inventor. So
many inventors are good at the technology aspect but lack other skills needed
such as business, legal, financial, marketing, and public relations. They
could use someone to play the CEO or other directorship role, leaving them to
the technology, and assuring them that you will be looking out for their best
Another class of job types is finding financing for technologies.
This matchmaking takes a special set of skills, being able to match the
idiosyncrasies of the inventor with the demands of the funding agency.
Inventors think they should be in control, since it's their technology.
Financiers think they should be in control, since it's their money.
Knowing how to make both groups happy is not easy.
Another class of job types is taking a do-it-yourself technology or an open
source design and turning it into a manufacturing operation, taking it to
the next level beyond DIY, either as a kit or as a completed unit. There
will be regulatory hoops involved that you'll need to understand and either work
around, change, or comply with. Be sure that in doing so that you have an
amiable relationship with the inventor, providing a reasonable royalty.
Another class of job types is professional services for free energy
inventors and companies:
- creating better websites,
- creating logos,
- creating promotional videos,
- doing artwork to illustrate their concepts,
- providing physical security,
- editing their technical writing,
- translating foreign sites into clear English,
- providing patent information advice,
- providing directorship for open sourcing the design,
- creating kits for open source project designs
Another class of job types is creating niche information specialty
websites or books, becoming the go-to expert for that topic. For
example, the hydroxy (hydrogen boost, water fuel) industry is very active,
nearly to the point of being chaotic. People who can bring clarity and
good suggestions to both newcomers and veterans are greatly appreciated.
Ditto for the electromagnetic overunity industry and the fuel efficiency
industry. Someone could specialize in providing suggestions about how
nanotechnology could be used to augment free energy applications (e.g. in cold
fusion, zero point energy, or even hydroxy). Providing a listing of
specific job opportunities in the free energy sector is another niche
information service that could do quite well. Of course we'd love to see
some of that expertise go toward cleaning up our pages on those topics at
Another class of job types is creating specialty online stores
geared toward free energy projects. You could sell ebooks, kits, and
individual components commonly needed but hard to source.
As you get involved in creating a business, be sure to post a listing about it
on our PESWiki site, which is publicly editable -- the "Wikipedia of Free
Energy". Feel free to create a feature
page about it, along with a bullet that links to that page from the various
relevant index pages. When you're far enough along, we'd love to feature
it in our news.
How I got Started
Maybe some of you will draw inspiration from hearing the story about how I got
started and what I've been through to make this my career for the past eight
years. It has not been easy at all, but it definitely has been worth the
effort, bringing me fulfillment in doing my part to help the world be a better
place doing what I love and would do even if I didn't get paid (but wouldn't be
able to spend as much time doing without pay).
I started with getting involved in the Perendev
magnet motor back in May of 2002. Intuitively, I had the feeling that I
needed to stick with this career (free energy) and not give up. For the
first two years, I held construction jobs to bring in enough money to pay the
bills. Then one day, as I was working on a log home up in Sundance, I got
this very strong feeling in my gut: "This is not you. This is not
what you are to be doing with your life." I let my boss know that I
would not be coming to work for a while, possibly never again. He thought
that was quite odd, seeing as I was barely making it financially with the
job. What would I do without?
My wife, who has been wonderfully supportive and patient through all this (a key
ingredient to success, by the way; you can't do this without your partner's
support), cooked meals from food storage that had been donated to us. We
also received cash donations. I remember calling around to various of my
associates to get one to three hundred dollars, about once a month. We
lived ultra meagerly like that for nearly a year. Another thing that has
been a huge help has been my parents support
by way of helping provide our housing.
In the Fall of 2004, we were promised a grant of several million dollars to
launch PES in a major way, complete with research facilities and peer review
facilitating capabilities. Week after week, for nearly a year, we were
told it would come "next week." It never did materialize, but it
did keep us going, inspiring us to plod onward.
Then in 2005, we started getting revenue from Google AdSense,
and from ebooks; and within a year we didn't have to ask for donations but were
able to get by. As gas prices rose, so did our revenue stream -- nearly in
a lockstep relationship. I hired one guy to work full-time and paid
several others on a 1099 contractor basis.
Then the housing bubble burst, and the economy started tanking, and the price of
gas went down, and our revenue stream took a major hit. Unwise on my part,
I kept the full-time help on too long, going into debt to make payroll, before
finally letting him go (for reasons more than financial). So now we are
saddled with some pretty heavy monthly debt payments. In the last year,
once again we've had to pass the
donation hat, and gratefully our website visitors and other benefactors of
our services have stepped forward to help us make ends meet.
Several projects are percolating, an one of which if it materializes, could provide us
once again with a healthy revenue stream.
And that is my hope for you as well.
