Searl Proof of Concept Video Posted

Mock-up completion marks the first time since 1963 that a roller has rotated about a ring continuously.  To be followed in a few months by a full 15 kW SEG generator capable of cheaply and safely producing electricity without fuel, pollution, friction, or noise.

Live Interview

On February 24, 2007 Sterling D. Allan conducted a live interview with Professor John Searl and Dr. Terry Moore.

Errata: (regarding earlier drafts)
This mock-up is not generating any electricity.  That was not its purpose.  It consumes a small amount of excitation energy, which will be replaced with rare earth elements in the SEG.

12-roller mock-up of Searl Effect Generator is not optimized for production of electricity but for investigation as to what forces are are work.

The Legend

ENGLAND -- In the 1960's Professor John Searl was building free-energy electricity generators that doubled as flying saucers, but was thrown in jail on the charge that he was stealing electricity from the grid.  He was running his home on his energy generator, not from the grid.

Along with being arrested, his plans and devices were all rounded up and sequestered.  They still have not surfaced these many years later -- unless some of the UFO and other odd sightings incorporate the government-stolen technology.

The device is a magnet motor of sorts, except that the product of the rotation is not torque but electricity that is liberated as the rollers make their rotation.  It is essentially a magnet motor and alternator in one.  Furthermore, if current is drawn off the device above a certain level, the device takes on on superconductor attributes which distort the gravitational fields, causing the device to levitate.

Emerging from jail penniless, John has had a difficult time rallying the necessary funds and talent to reproduce what he had developed in the '60s.  Back then, he was employed with a British utility board and had access to a laboratory with all the equipment and tools necessary.  Sourcing the materials and tools without that resource has been very difficult.  He has come close several times, but all previous attempts have ended in frustration.

Demo Video Posted

Last weekend, Searl's close friend and business associate Dr. Terry Moore posted two videos at YouTube that demonstrate two mock-up variations that will enable Searl to file for a British patent.  (The British will not award a patent without proof.)

The test device is not the full-fledged Searl Effect Generator (SEG).  That is still in process of being built, and at this point will be purposely shunted to prevent the anti-gravity effect.

In the first video, a single cylindrical, stationary roller is nudged to begin moving.  It accelerates around the perimeter of a ring until its rotation around the ring stabilizes at a rate of around 100 rpm.

The second video shows the same set-up except with twelve rollers, already in motion.

In these demonstration videos, the input excitation energy was around five volts at 600 milliamps (3 watts).  From zero to 436 milliamps, the rollers do not move.   If the voltage is increased by two volts, the speed "is much faster."

These mock-up versions of the SEG were not designed for optimal power output.  That was  not the purpose of the mock-up.  This mock-up illustrates that continuous rotation is possible.

According to Searl, the purpose of the mock-up was to find out why the rollers spin, why they stay on the plate, and to see what input power is necessary for operation -- to see what kind of rare earth material will be able to provide the the input power.  Rare earth has an inherent voltage.

What they discovered is that the input power is low enough that "any rare earth will make [the rollers] move."  In the full SEG, the outer excitation apparatus used in the mock-up will be replaced by another ring composed in part of rare earth, so there will be no external input energy required whatsoever.

"This proves [what] I've been stating over the years," said Searl.  Accomplishing this demonstration marks a major milestone toward "getting back to the good ol' days when we were chucking things about," said Searl.

The next step is to now build the full SEG.  Later will come the anti-gravity.

Tell the World

The video was made on February 5th, but the Searl team sat on it for a while, discussing just what they wanted to do with it.  They decided that getting public exposure would help protect them from being shut down again.

Various documentary crews including a Hollywood outfit and a television outfit are in process of filming the proof of concept device.  Fox will be going in on Sunday to take footage to be aired in 2-3 weeks.  The Hollywood documentary is to be released later this year.

How the SEG Works

There are three rings in the full SEG design.  The energy generated in the first ring is passed unidirectionally (like a diode) to the next ring, which boosts that power as it is passed to the next ring, and so forth, until it reaches the periphery where it is pulled off as usable electricity, after being run through a step-down transformer to the voltage desired.

According to the website, the full SEG design consists of

"three rings fixed to a base. Surrounding each of the rings, and free to rotate around them, are rollers - typically 10 on the first ring, 25 on the next and 35 on the outer ring. Surrounding the outer rollers are coils, which are connected in various configurations to supply either AC or DC current at a variety of voltages.  Multiple magnetic poles are imprinted on the rings and rollers to form frictionless magnetic bearings. These also arrange the static charge into opposing charge clusters which cause the rollers to rotate around the circumference of the ring." (Ref.)

As the rollers go about the ring, everywhere they go they are surrounded by opposite magnetic polarities, which makes them move.

As these rollers rotate, electrons are liberated, beginning at the center of the device, and emanating outward where they are picked up by the coils around the perimeter.  However, this is not an electron-depleting process but rather a circular process, as the electrons return to the center.

Also, unlike other generator scenarios, the SEG instantaneously releases the amount of electricity called for by the load.  It doesn't have to wait until the rotation speeds up or slows down.  The load can be zero, and the device will still rotate; or the load can be the maximum load, and the device still rotates at the same speed.

Furthermore, in the SEG, the rotating rollers float about on a magnetic cushion so that there is no friction, no vibration, no noise, no parts to wear out.  It is as stable as a solid state device.  "We hope these generators are still operating 1000 years from now," said Searl.

Rare earth minerals are a key ingredient in the design.  While they are termed "rare earth," they are not rare in terms of supply.  "There are mountain heaps of it", according to Searl.

The secret to building the device is known only to three people, but Searl has left clues throughout his voluminous writings (several thousand pages).  "An earlier download available to Searl members contained a key that we should not have included, because with that a person can build one of these," said Moore. The most recent DVD available to members has this removed.

The fabrication key is in the process of impregnating the materials with the alternating magnetic fields. The key concept is what Searl calls "the law of the squares" which is found abundantly in nature, from the micro to the macrocosmic level.

The most recent design has some improvements of what Searl had in the '60s.  The rare earth alloy he used back then was volatile when not protected in argon gas, and oxidized, causing the materials to deteriorate.  Searl has now come up with an alloy that can be subjected to air with no problems.

Producing a Commercial Unit

The test devices were built by an engineer in California named Fernando Morris, who has been exposed to the technology for 20 years, having spent seven years working indirectly through Searl associate, John Thomas, and now the last three years directly with Searl.  He has been volunteering his time, doing this part-time.  Another person came forward with money without controlling strings attached, enabling them to finance the material costs for the project to this point.  Additional funding in the order of about £500,000 British pounds will be needed to complete the full SEG, which could happen by June or July of this year.  Searl expects that the first production assembly line will cost around £14 million British pounds, but that subsequent lines will not be as much.

The first commercial units, targeted to have a power output of 15 kilowatts -- more than enough to run most any home -- are expected to cost £16,000 British pounds (~$32,000 USD).  That price will come down by a factor of ten once the devices are mass produced using robotics.

And the manufactured device is expected to last for at least 50 years.

Searl has mixed emotions about this recent breakthrough in which they now have a device to demonstrate the principle.  "It's a very exciting thing," he said.  "1968 was the last time I saw magnets rolling around a ring."  He is confident that "this time I know we'll get there."  On the other, he said, "this should have happened in 1968."

They were further along in the '60s than they are now, with nearly two dozen complete units built and operational.

After the first full SEG is built again and then engineered for production, the government will require that it be tested for safety, further postponing its emergence into the market.  Meanwhile, the company is forging the way for five or six production facilities to manufacture the SEG in volume.

Contemplating these steps that will probably take two to five years, the elderly Searl said, "I hope I'll be around long enough to see the SEG in the marketplace."

Searl said that the SEG can be scaled up or down to match the power requirement of the target application, whether it be a locomotive or a cell phone, providing energy inexpensively, on-demand, with no pollution.  Searl said, "No one is working on something of this magnitude."

Bumping into Witness

Dr. Moore, who met Searl in 1998, shortly after he (Moore) had quit his medical practice and turned to naturopathy.  They have been the best of friends ever since.  Even though he had high regard for Searl and his SEG concepts, there was still that tiniest skepticism whether what allegedly took place in the '60s really did take place.  With Searl's imprisonment, the team from that era had scattered, and their whereabouts were unknown.  The rumor had circulated that Searl had died.

It was therefore no small matter when Moore ran into Richard Compton, one of the original team members who had worked on and witnessed the early operational prototypes.  They were both sitting in a reception area.  Moore noticed that a man was reading Nexus magazine, and so he commented to him something to the effect, "You're interested in that sort of thing, eh?"

The man replied (paraphrasing), "Yea, you would never believe this, but I was involved some years back with a man by the name of Searl."

Moore recalled what a pleasure it was to inform Compton that Searl was yet alive.  "In fact, let me ring him on my cell phone."

"As the two of them talked, it was as if ten weeks had not passed since they had communicated."  Seeing that witness was very rewarding to Moore.

Moore considers Searl to be one of the most brilliant people he has ever met -- and one of the most meek.  "If any one deserves the Nobel Prize, he does," Moore said.

In it for the Planet

The company wants to make the devices as cheap as possible, possibly building a little mark-up into the price so that they could be given away to third world situations.  "One of these could power a whole village in Africa", where they don't have heating expenses and a myriad of appliances."

"The team here is critically concerned about the state of the planet", continue Moore.

If they accomplish their objective, they could indeed provide a major solution for the energy and pollution problems that face the planet.

Not only would the SEG provide power at whatever load is required (within its rating) on demand, as needed, no more, no less, whenever it is needed; but it would do so cleanly, quietly, safely, and at a price point far below what energy presently costs.

A press release announcing this development stated: "Those serious about becoming involved in this technology are invited to contact Professor John Searl with their offers of assistance in setting up the first production line of the 15 KW Searl Effect Generator."

About S.I.S.R.C.

The name of Searl's company is Searl International Space Research Consortium.

Searl looks forward to the day when he can get back into space work, developing the antigravity effects of this device.

He says that with this technology, a trip to the moon would take an hour.  A trip to Mars would take a couple of months.  A trip out of the earth's atmosphere would take 20 minutes.  "We could run daily trips to the international space station."
