SHT's former CEO, Konstantine Balakirian, a Soviet disinformation expert
Hakop Aganyan (Jack), left, is Founder and President of
SHT (brother at right). Konstantine, co-founder, is shown in the middle, at
the Defense Energy Summit.
When he was fired,
Konstantine confessed that he had been one of the best disinformation experts. He's the one who put forth the misleading
explanation last year that the copious hydrogen production was coming from a
transmutation of oxygen to hydrogen, and said that the chemical portion
accounted for maybe 2.1%.

I need to preface this story by letting you know, clearly, that in publishing
this, I am violating an injunction to keep confidential information provided to
me by Jack Aganyan, founder of Solar
Hydrogen Trends, Inc, who disclosed it to me last week, under those
When he told me what it was, I inquired why he wanted to keep it confidential.
It seemed to me to be crucial information that should be made known.
He reminded me forcefully that if I violated his trust on this, that he would
not be disclosing any more privileged information to me, and he wouldn't be able
to trust me. He didn't say this, but I also got the feeling from his intensity
that if I violated his request that PES could lose its position with SHT as the
preferred news outlet for sharing future breakthrough announcements.
Today, as I was writing this story, he called me regarding another question that
I asked, and I told
him that I was writing this story. He implored me not to do it. He doesn't want
to jeopardize relationships, business reputation, and potentially the livelihood
of six families. Konstantine has been a family friend for 45 years.
For context, here are the two back-to-back blockbuster stories we posted last
weekend, which stirred up a hornets nest behind the scenes.
I was getting all kinds of information from both sides as they spat at each
other. In the end, the guys at SHT gave me a toast, while Konstantine said he
wouldn't contact me any more. If you saw the earlier version of the story, you
could see why the guys at SHT were giving me a toast. I had backed way down in
my anger at them, and in seeking to see things from their vantage point, I could
sort of see why they were portraying things the way that they were. They had
been seeing all kinds of anomalies, and didn't know how to describe them or
explain them. The amount of hydrogen they were getting was way beyond what any
one methodology (e.g. chemical) could explain. Nevertheless, I do have to say
that I am extremely frustrated with them for over a year of portraying their
system as being as high as 1300+ times overunity, when their calculation of COP
did not take the chemical contribution into account at all. I have a hard time
not seeing this as them having a hidden battery that they've not been telling us
about. They do have a tremendous breakthrough, but I don't care for how they've
held back a crucial piece of information.
Today, it took me nearly three hours to go back through the stories we've done,
to post a disclaimer/errata notice, both in the stories, and to make changes in
the bullet descriptions.
On July 26, 2015, it was made
known to us that the SHT reaction is primarily chemical, using
aluminum plates exposed to water to produce hydrogen and aluminum oxide
(plus more). So all prior representations of "overunity"
are erroneously depicted, because they only accounted for the
electrical input and the hydrogen output, and do not account for the
aluminum/water expendable fuel input. That said, SHT's symphony of 16
processes that facilitate the production of hydrogen, including by
enabling the aluminum plates to stay exposed to water and not be covered
with a film of aluminum oxide to prevent further reaction, is indeed a
significant breakthrough toward enabling the hydrogen economy, and appears
to include some exotic processes.
But that, alone, is not why I'm defecting and breaching Jack's trust and
playing whistleblower -- whistleblower, in this case, given that I'm sharing
privileged, inside information, which sharing will have consequences for me and
The driving reason is my conscience. It just seems blatantly obvious to me that
this information should be disclosed publicly. There are some valuable lessons
to be learned from this, and Konstantine needs to be exposed for what he is and
what he has done. My conscience will not let me be quiet.
I also did an Alphabetics
query, which confirmed that this should be disclosed. It described
Konstantine as CEO and alleged "scientist" covering things up, needing
to be exposed.
Day of Firing: "By the Way, I was a Soviet Disinfo Expert"
In the July 26 story, I wrote:
Jack gave several reasons why SHT fired Constantine from the CEO
position, including that his angrily barking of orders as a leftover of the Soviet era
dictatorship was not appreciated; and that he did not give credit where credit
was due, but tended to want to bask in the limelight, taking more credit than he
deserved. They also didn't think he had the leadership skills required to run a company.
His unbridled gambling addiction was also a factor. It was at a casino that his
entire team arrived and announced that he was fired, after he had promised them
he would stop.
Imagine the situation. The SHT lives in the LA area. The casino is on the
Nevada border. That's a 3-4.5 hour drive, depending on traffic. This wasn't a
matter of just driving somewhere in town. The entire team got in a vehicle(s)
and drove that distance to confront their CEO in the casino and unitedly fire
Afterward, at a get-together at a bar with them, somewhat inebriated, Konstantine, now 75 years old, said something to the
By the way, it's only fair that you know. Back in the Soviet times, I was
one of the best Soviet brainwashers. They would send me to scientific
conferences to discredit certain scientists.
This was a shock to all the team members. Jack noted that they have neither
confirmed nor disproved the accuracy of Konstantine's statement. Maybe he was
just making a B.S. statement in his inebriated state.
I have not done anything to try to verify whether or not that was the case. I
have no clue how to pursue such documentation. I wouldn't want to try, because
of the kind of people I would have to contact in order to get that information.
It's not a world in which I want to mingle.
I do know that his PhD is not in Physics. He was only a candidate
to receive doctorate in Physics. His PhD is in Psychology, which is consistent with his
claim to his peers, three months ago on the way back from the casino after being
fired, that he was a Soviet disinformation agent: both his parading as a
scientist, and his actual degree being in an area where mind manipulation can be
used for good or evil.
One of the reasons this jumps out at me as being extremely troubling is that
back in the late 80's when the Berlin Wall came down and the Soviet Union was
"breaking up," the intelligence I was receiving from my sources that
understand that there is a conspiracy to overthrow the freedom of the United
States and establish in its place a world socialist dictatorship, was that this
alleged "demise" of the Soviet Union was part of a long-term ploy to
appear weak, even though they were yet strong. Sun Tzu in his War Strategy said:
"when weak, feign strength; when strong, feign weakness."
I was told that at that point, as the West then opened its doors to
"former" Soviet persons, that there would be many sleepers coming to
the West who would impose significant damage by being able to have more access
due to this deception. They could get into key positions where they could exert
their influence, subtly, in favor of the long-term Soviet agenda of global
domination by the Soviet system.
That said, no, I do not think that everyone who has come here from the
"former" Soviet Union has/had nefarious intentions, or is out to see
the dismantling of freedom in the United States and other Western countries. My
friendship with the SHT team, knowing that they are from the "former"
Soviet Union, illustrates my openness to good things coming from anywhere in the
So, given this new information, there are questions that need to be asked about
Konstantine and his role in SHT. Was he still acting as an agent, dedicated to
the long-term agenda of his mother country, whether or not he's still on their
payroll? Is there a sleeper cell tentacle that the "former" Soviet
Union still has in him, that they are able to unlock remotely, to get him to do
their bidding on certain key aspects? Is he still using the methodologies he
learned in that practice to his own personal benefit? Or is he completely free
of that former influence, and just being a dysfunctional human being that we
should feel empathy for?
If I didn't think it was one of the former possibilities, I would not be writing
this article. There are some important lessons here for all of us.
In the year-plus that I've been tracking SHT, the entire time, including and
especially, Konstantine, poised as being dedicated to the United States and its
success. This is reflected, for example, in a press release we published from
them on December 20, 2014: SHT
dedicated to keeping U.S. dominant. Ironically, within that was this
statement (emphasis mine): "Our team has members who are accomplished
inventors and who had high level positions within the Soviet scientific
community and military industrial complex. Perhaps not in the
distant future we will disclose the full biography of the team members and the
details of their accomplishments in the past and the present." That was
written by Jack, with help from Robert Avetesian, from California.
Jack emphasized recently:
"We don't know where the hydrogen is coming from. We're still
exploring to try to understand why it produces so much."
Konstantine's Fruits Within SHT
Up until these two recent stories, I had thought that Konstantine was the
primary inventor of the SHT system. But now that he's fired, I learn that he
contributed very little to the intellectual portfolio of the technology. Not
only is he not the primary inventor, but he barely deserves mention. His being
listed first on the patent was political, to keep him happy, as was the scarcity
of other names mentioned (just Jack). Konstantine's being given the CEO role was
for similar reasons.
Though prior to his being fired as CEO, he had only spent 100 days of the
previous year at home in Phoenix, his time in the Los Angeles was not spent
working tirelessly with SHT. He spent most of his time gambling. He only showed
up rarely to SHT, and when he did, he didn't contribute much. To the contrary,
he was more of a troublemaker and builder of contention.
Was it Konstantine who fostered the strategy of keeping the Aluminum
confidential up until our story this past week-end, and presenting the
"overunity" calculation only in terms of electricity input versus
When SHT was first coming on the public scene last year, in a story we published
on May 7, 2014, Chief
Scientist Shares SHT Symphony 7A Secrets, Konstantine wrote:
"The following are some of the more notable comments (with my
responses) from various forums representing views of individuals that I found
1. "This is a Chemical Reaction"
Professor K. Balakiryan - "I agree. In Symphony 7A, active metal alloy is
involved in the oxidation reaction. However, the amount of formed oxide for a
one hour period is only 2.1%. During that same time, Symphony 7A produces more
than 7 kg of hydrogen, and the share of that chemical reaction is only about
189 grams of hydrogen. If all the hydrogen in Symphony 7A reactor was produced
by oxidation - reduction reaction, then in one hour we would spend 97.9 % of
all active metal alloy, and the cartridge would have to be replaced
practically every hour. This could have become the weak point of our hydrogen
reactor. However, in Symphony 7A, the cartridge is replaced once a week, and
for the model Symphony 7AM, cartridge replacement will take place once every
Knowing what we know now, that their process keeps the aluminum exposed to
water, I'm not inclined to believe this statement to be anywhere near being a
close representation of the facts. One point that we know to not be true, is his
saying: "the cartridge is replaced once in a week," as if they have
kept the reactor running for that long -- when he told me a few days ago that
SHT never could keep it running for more than 6 hours (until after he left,
according to Jack, who says they could keep it running continuously, now). He
didn't clarify in that statement that such duration was theoretical, but stated
it as if it had been accomplished, which was not true.
It was also Konstantine, in that same article, who put forth the theory that the
abundance of oxygen being seen in the qualitative analysis was from an LENR
reaction involving the transmutation of oxygen into hydrogen. In other words,
the H2O was turning to just H, via some safe nuclear process. Jack said that
none of the other scientists on the team bought into that model. However, none
of them corrected it in the stories we subsequently posted.
Putting these things together, that Konstantine had said, we were led to believe
that, yes, there was a little chemistry taking place, but very little, and that
most of the action was coming via the conversion of H2O to H2 gas. And according
to that model, the only relevant input was the electricity, producing the
hydrogen gas output, with huge overunity.
Now that Konstantine has been fired as CEO, it has been Konstantine who has
to us that a primary aspect of their process is keeping the aluminum plates
(which we didn't know existed) exposed to the water. He disclosed that at the
vehement protest of SHT, who threatened to sue him for violating their NDA, even
though he's close to a majority shareholder of their stock.
Now, do you believe their number of COP 1300+?
I don't know about you, but now that I realize Konstantine is a former Soviet
disinformation agent -- one of the best -- up until recently serving as
"chief scientist" and CEO of SHT, I find myself wondering about
everything that we've heard from SHT, all of them being from the
"former" Soviet Union.
He's not the only one who has been purveying this misleading information. The
others have been saluting.
Now, ask yourself the question. Do you think I did the right thing by publishing
this? Are you glad I did?
Yes, I still hope SHT will be successful. I'm all for a cleaner planet, and it
seems that they have a solution with great promise.
But I like my information given to me straight, not via strategic agendas.
I can understand a certain extent of fudging to protect proprietary aspects and
to stay under the radar from the bullies on the planet. But what we had here was
not fudging, it was blatant disinformation that the entire SHT team was
complicit with, in part because of the mastery of the CEO dictating the terms.
Now that we have a more clear view, this has become obvious.
I wish them well, and I trust they will be just fine in recovering from this
exposure I'm giving of some sore truths behind the scenes. It's good to pull out
slivers so they don't fester.
Postscript: Snake in the House
Just after writing this, and sending a link so Jack and Konstantine can
review it first, I looked up from my computer, and there in the kitchen, by
the sliding door, was a snake -- in the house.
Snakes don't belong in the house.
I don't know how far to take this synchronistic metaphor, but in my case, it
was a small, harmless snake, about the size of a garter or gardener snake, but
all brownish. Maybe a small bull snake.
Seeing me see it, it crawled into a corner, back behind some stuff.
I opened the door, then started moving the stuff, and when it was exposed, it
quickly slithered out the door.
