Free Energy Meets Free Software at FISL 14 in Brazil

The International Forum for Free Software paid for my trip to come speak at their conference. Though exotic free energy is a tangential topic here, the "outside-the-box" thinking about distributed solutions is something we strongly have in common.

I'm down here in Porto Alegre, Brazil, for the 14th International Forum on Free Software (FISLΊ14). 

One of the organizers, Thomas Soares, who has a passion for both Free Software and Free Energy Technology, invited me to come speak about the Top 5 Exotic Free Energy Technologies Closest to Market. FISL paid for my trip to Brazil to do this.

You might ask: "What does this have to do with Free Energy?"

There are actually quite a few cross-pollination points between the two movements. Both are populated by mavericks that think outside the box and are pushing the envelope. Both are very much in favor of "power to the people," in the spirit of making things distributed, compared to centralized as so many things are today, with the mainstream increasing that trend.

Here's video of an interview I did with Thomas, in which he introduces the concept of Free Software, and he also explains his interest in Free Energy.

As one of the movers and shakers in the Free Software world, in his 14th year as a founder, helping organize this conference that is expected to be attended by around 10,000 people in four days, he is both a qualified spokesman for that movement, and an inspiration to us in the world of Exotic Free Energy. I think it shows how far we've come that someone his level of influence would show this degree of interest. He has dropped everything to focus on helping bring some of these exotic free energy technologies to general usefulness. He could be a great avenue for rolling out an open source FE tech to the world.

Arc extends from coil to cage.

It's kind of hard to see in this reduced image, but two mascots showed up to the conference, including the Linux penguin.

Thomas arranged for me to use the VIP office space where I could get a good internet connection; and while helping me on some translations for my PowerPoint, he pointed out that my computer is probably the only one in the entire conference that has MS Windows installed on it. I realized that even though we individually can't fight all battles, that I should probably do more to move away from "mainstream" software, and adopt "free software", such as Linux, to do my part in supporting alternatives to mainstream players that have become corrupt.

I have found the people at this conference to be very passionate, similar to what I find at exotic FE conferences.

I had to chuckle at the speaker sign-in table. With 10,000 people attending, and 16 lecture rooms, 10 lectures a day, for 4 days, there were more speakers at this conference than visitors that show up to most free energy conferences. They had a speaker check-in area that was manned by four people.

Tesla Coil Demo Video

I've uploaded a video giving you a brief tour of the venue, focusing in on Thomas Soares' demonstration space and also the Tesla Coil demonstration area. I got to go inside the Faraday cage as they turned on the coil, shooting a video from inside. I was the first, then a line formed by a bunch of others who wanted to do the same. (This footage also includes the interview with Thomas shown above, so you can skip ahead at that point to 8:30 minutes)

Update, July 4

The FISL 14 home page now features an image of the Tesla Coil:

The caption reads:

Energy for the Future
A Faraday cage and a giant Tesla coil in display on the FISL

I've compiled a video of just the Tesla coil explanation and demo. (The same footage is included in the video above.)

In case you are wondering, the reason for their limited time of running the coil is because of the sound. It is quite loud, and can be heard from the other side of the hall. Out of respect for the other exhibitors, they only run it for about 30 seconds each time, as people take turns getting inside the Faraday Cage. And they do this for maybe 15 minutes, then wait an hour or two before running it again.

They can be found online at: 

My Presentation

Update July 4

A recording of my presentation can be seen here.

I was in room 40T on July 4 at 2 pm, Brazil time (GMT-3 [is 11 am Mountain time]). That day (American Independence Celebration) is appropriate, given that my subject touches on the idea that "Free Energy is about Freedom." Think of the empowerment that clean, affordable, inexhaustible energy that is available everywhere in the world will provide.

The presentation was poorly attended, but at least we got a foot in the door, so to speak. An invitation is open for me to come again next hear for FISL 15.

In Other News

Taping with Gaiam TV Going Up

I received notice from Gaiam TV that the episode I shot with them in Boulder last April, just prior to heading over to see the Yildiz Magnet Motor Demo in Geneva, Switzerland (excuse my previous exuberance for what turned out to be a disappointing demo because of the motor malfunction, though I still came away more convinced about the motor being genuine than before I went).

My interview with Regina Meredith will premiere on Gaiam TV’s Open Minds Tuesday, July 9 at 7pm EST. You will only be able to see the show if you are a subscriber or by signing up for the FREE 10-day trial.

The show blurb will read something to the effect:

"With the faster pace of life that comes from having abundant energy comes the need for a change in consciousness to compassionately embrace the advances being brought to the whole world. Sterling Allan, CEO of Pure Energy Systems, explains breakthroughs in new energy technologies and the need for a shift in consciousness to transcend our current wasteful energy paradigm in this interview with Regina Meredith originally webcast July 9, 2013."

RAR Energia: Definite "No"

Thomas tried diligently to see if he could get us in to visit RAR Energia (the company with the huge gravity motor here in Porto Alegre). Such a visit had been one of my key motivations in coming down here to Brazil, and I had been disappointed when they declined my visit when they discovered that I'm from the "media", and that I also represent NEST, to help emerging breakthrough free energy technologies find funding, professional services, licensees, customers, etc. They are insistent that they are not interested in that kind of assistance at this time.

Before you jump to the conclusion that maybe their unit is poised to not work, and they don't want egg-on-the-face publicity, let me just say that the group seems to me as very confident, taking measured steps, in their timing, and their way.

Their reception to me had been warm until I elaborated my reasons for wishing to visit, which is when they declined, for the above reason.

Next Stop, Keppe Motor

While I'm down here, the timing works great for me to slip over to the 19th International Conference on Analytical Trilogy (ICAT) in Cambuquira, where on Sunday, I'll be talking about Trilogy and Free Energy: How Consciousness Effects Breakthrough Timing. I'm especially looking forward to giving that lecture, where I'll be presenting some concepts publicly for the first time (but definitely not the last).

I'm also scheduled to speak to a second Trilogy gathering that will be open to the public and streamed live from Sao Paulo the following Saturday, about the Top 5 Exotic Free Energy Technologies. This will be a panel of lectures in English, with the theme: The Energetics of Consciousness Applied to Sustainable Technology. The tentative program includes: myself, Cesar Soos, Alex Frascari, Roberto Frascari, and Leonard Burgh. The three engineers will summarize the new physics.

Speaking by Web at COFE

I'm also scheduled to give a presentation via web about the Top 5 at Tom Valone's Conference on Future Energy (COFE) in Maryland, USA, on July 11 a 4 pm MDT.

Tesla Tech Coming, Last Weekend of July

After I get back to the States, I'm going to be heading down to the TeslaTech ExtraOrdinary Technology conference in Albuquerque, driving down with Moray King.

Global Breakthrough Energy Movement Conference Coming this Fall

I'm scheduled to speak at the Global BEM Conference in Boulder, Colorado (where I was born and raised), which will be held on the University of Colorado campus from October 10-12, 2013. This will be the second International conference they have organized. Their first was a great success, over in Hilversum, Holland. We'll be doing a story about that one, probably in the next week, after they get some key details ironed out.

P.S. Don't Worry, Be Happy

As a totally tangential side note, here is a little write-up I did about the experience I had yesterday morning at the GRU airport in Sao Paulo on the way to Porto Alegre. It's kind of funny, with a moral to the story.

Wow, that GRU airport experience is one of the most surreal ever, in all the travelling I've done.

Like usual, after going through the passport check, I retrieved my luggage from baggage claim.

But unlike what I've experienced before, there was no obvious place to take my luggage next for it to go on the next plane to my final destination, Porto Alegre.

I asked several agents for guidance. One said "go downstairs". The next said, "go upstairs". The next said, "go over there".

My ticket stub did not have my flight number printed in any obvious way. I finally saw it once, but could not find it again, so I was going based on the departure time, and the departure was delayed due to fog (I found this out after talking to about 3 agents).

I think I was reading the monitor right, based on the city name and clock times, even though half the info was in Portuguese.

The monitor directed me to Gate 1-F, but when I went down to where all the "1" gates were, they had three entry points, for A, B, and C. Finally after going upstairs and down a couple of times, I realized that the "C" included "C-I", as in "i".

There were several delays, apparently, due to weather (fog, and they didn't know when it would clear), so the area was packed.

Finally, I realized that the lady sitting next to me spoke English pretty well, and she said she would let me know when they made an announcement about my flight.

After a couple of hours, a pertinent announcement came over, and nearly everyone gave a jubilant cheer, and got up to stand in line at Gate A.

When I got to the gate and showed my passport, the agent pulled me aside and asked me to wait while he went and inquired with another agent. Then a minute later, he had me follow him to Gate B, back behind where the agent cabinets are, where a small number of people then followed him past the first gate, which they closed as we walked by it, and we entered a small shuttle vehicle, which had three seats up next to the driver, followed by two sets of four seats behind that, like a hotel shuttle van.

I wondered what kind of plane we would be going to, some tiny thing, if that's all that are getting on the shuttle to get there?

It drove us to another building, which had about 8 gates with probably 300 seats spaciously spread around, and the monitor said my flight would be leaving from gate 1F. 

As I looked around the room at the different gates, I was puzzled, because at each of the gates, there was the cabinetry and agents, but no apparent door, except at one. Then I realized that the glass windows were sliding glass, which became the portals at ground level.

I had barely pulled my computer out when an announcement came over the intercom that nearly everyone in the area rejoiced at, got out of their seats and lined up behind 1-F. Apparently, it was going to be a big plane.

Now, here I was, walking outside with all these people, to board the large plane that most likely was going to be completely full. The weather was a bit chilly and breezy, but that didn't get to me, without a jacket, because we weren't out there long enough (maybe 5 minutes). Glad it wasn't raining at the moment. The wet ground let me know that it had been raining not long before. Of course, I had my luggage with me so I could have pulled out my umbrella and winter coat if I needed it. But even though it is "winter" here in Brazil, their "winter" is more like our Spring -- mildly cool at worst, so I probably over-prepared for winter weather.

Now, here I was, walking up a set of stairs into the jet, which had no apparatus under it for loading luggage. And here I was with this large piece of luggage, wondering what we were going to do with it. It certainly was not going to fit in any overhead compartment or under any seat, and they didn't seem equipped to be able to put it in the regular luggage area under the plane.

As I got to the top of the stairs and entered the plane, I pointed to my luggage with a questioning look to the two stewardesses, who just shook their heads at me. I returned with a blank look like, "what am I supposed to do?"

They then took my luggage and set it by them at the entry way. My seat was two rows from the very front, but I didn't see what they did with it. Did they just keep it there with them where they do all their prep stuff?

A few minutes later, they brought me a receipt for my luggage for claiming it later.

Maybe thy tucked it behind the pilot's seat.

Actually, it turns out that they somehow got it down below, and I picked it up at baggage claim.

So, that's my experience at an airport on an unusual day, with an unusual situation, not speaking the language, but still, somehow, things worked out.


p.s. Porto Alegre means: "Cheerful Port" (or gate).

Upon reading this account, my Brother-in-Law, Kevn Lambson, who produced our PES logo and other graphics, gave the following quip:

Welcome to the wonderful world of Latin American travel scheduling. In Mexico, typical answers to "when is the bus coming" were: "Today, maybe, tomorrow, maybe."
