The Free Energy Explorer -- Interview with Mark Dansie
While he describes himself as my "nemesis", Mark Dansie
actually makes some excellent points about the pursuit of free energy. As one
who has booked more frequent flier miles recently than anyone I know pursuing
free energy claims, he's one to drive home the point: "Extraordinary claims
require extraordinary proof."

On February 15, I received an email from Gary Hendershot of the SmartScarecrow
show, where I've been doing a weekly recap of the news for more than a year now.
He wanted to know if I'd have a problem with Mark Dansie being interviewed,
since he does seem to have some criticism of myself and PESN.
I told him to go for it, that I have a lot of respect for Mark, and that
actually, despite our differences, we are pretty good friends and associates. He
claims to have lots of contacts with people with deep pockets who will fund
something if it's real; and his task is to find such a thing.
As Mark points out, I'm not just a journalist, I'm a cheerleader of free energy
-- rooting for the various teams out there, even if they are competitors. I'm
not always objective, but often take a promotional stance in my writing.
The interview took place on March 1 and had a lot of great content, including
Marks criticism of me and PESN. And I agree with much of his criticism. They are
points well made, and he does it in a jovial spirit, with an intention of being
constructive, not destructive.
I must admit that one of my motivations in life is to prove the skeptics
wrong, including him; and to have one of the technologies that he is sure is
bogus or even fraudulent, prove to be a genuine game changer.
What you have to admire about Mark is that even though he is a skeptic, he wants
to find a feasible free energy technology. And he has logged a serious number of
miles traveling around the planet to check out various claims. In February, he
said he was on planes for a total of 60 hours. Last year he logged 38 flights.
When we were contacted a couple of years ago by a company in S. Africa who
claimed to have an all-magnet motor that was certified to work, showing us its
certification by TάV Rhienland, Mark and several of his associates flew down to
check it out. It didn't take them long to find a hidden wire to power a hidden
motor. In fact, he said his associate still has a scar from where he got
electrocuted when he found the hidden wire.
Mark and I check in with each other quite regularly, and I pay attention to
Mark's skepticism, though I retain my overall optimism -- as does he, except
that our ratio of optimism to skepticism is probably close to opposite. I tend
to believe something much easier, and it takes me longer to realize something is
actually bogus, whereas Mark tends to disbelieve something first, and only after
extensive proof will he become a believer. But he will go check something out if
the claims are significant enough.
One area where we disagree, for example, is in the Joe Cell. I keep hearing
peeps from people that suggest there is something to that, while Mark, on the
other hand, has
completely dismissed it. I tend to give credence to the peeps, where he doesn't.
I am also a strong believer that we'll see vehicles and gensets that run on
water, while Mark doesn't think that one will ever pan out.
In the interview, he speaks of several technologies that are looking very
promising, though they are yet a long ways off from market readiness. One was
some kind of buoyancy system (not Hidro+
from Australia), another was a super-battery, and another (EEFG)
the harvesting of electrets to create an endless battery replacement. He's even
talked of an electromagnetic overunity system that he's witnessed in operation,
as well as a working all-magnet motor, though the later doesn't put out a useful
amount of energy.
He's far more skeptical about how soon we'll see practical cold fusion devices
in the marketplace. While my understanding is that we are a few months away from
Defkalion having their Hyperion 5-45 kW heater ready for purchase, Mark thinks
we'd be lucky to see something before two years.
Here's the video. The portion with Mark begins at 42:48.
