BBC Shock and Awe: The Story of Electricity

This BBC documentary does an excellent job of reviewing the fascinating history of electricity and its many key players of the past two centuries. It's astonishing how rapidly the technology unfolded and how radically it changed how we live. So will it be with Free Energy.

by Sterling D. Allan
Pure Energy Systems News

An associate send me a link to an awesome documentary by the BBC on the history of electricity. It's both informative and entertaining, being shot mostly on location where the various pivotal discoveries were made, showing the devices as they probably appeared.

Though I learned a few of these things going through the education system, that education doesn't come close to the value of the presentation provided in this three-part documentary on this topic.

I was pleased to learn that one of Benjamin Franklin's stated motivations in his work in this area was to help provide the newly forming United States with a tangible means by which they could further free themselves from the tyrannical bonds of Britain. Those of you who follow our news regularly know that one of my key premises about free energy technology is that it will help liberate the world from the tyrannical forces presently seeking to destroy the planet and enslave humanity. It renders them and their control mechanisms obsolete by empowering the individual, literally and figuratively. [By "free energy", I refer to the source from nature that is ubiquitous, inexhaustible, and free for the taking; though the devices that enable that are not free; but some of the new modalities emerging will push the price point much closer to "free" as well.]

I had not realized that the development of usable electricity had played such a role in the founding of the U.S. as a free and prosperous nation. So now we have yet another major example from history in support of the premise about the economic and political boon that free energy technology can provide.

The emergence of free energy will empower the emergence of a free globe.

In watching this video, another thing that stands out for me is how different life has become in just the past two centuries as a result of the inventions, and how certain discoveries were key to opening people's minds and moving the entire field forward with that understanding. A similar revolution is likely to unfold as some of these emerging free energy technologies are finally taken seriously, and the creative genius of the planet is unleashed in studying, characterizing, and optimizing their effects.

Here's the description and videos posted by ImBigOnReddit to YouTube last February. [1 | 2 | 3]

Part II includes a feature on Nikola Tesla, both in the introduction and starting at around 35:58 minutes. Unfortunately, rather than depicting the later half of his life as being where he introduced technologies ahead of his time, they portray him as having sort of "lost it." And in the third episode, they don't mention his name when talking about the discovery of radio and other wireless communication. 

Professor Jim Al-Khalili tells the electrifying story of our quest to master nature's most mysterious force - electricity. This series tells of dazzling leaps of imagination and extraordinary experiments - a story of maverick geniuses who used electricity to light our cities, to communicate across the seas and through the air, to create modern industry and to give us the digital revolution.

Episode 1: Spark

Episode one tells the story of the very first 'natural philosophers' who started to unlock the mysteries of electricity. This is the story about what happened when the first real concerted effort was made to understand electricity; how we learned to create and store it, before finally creating something that enabled us to make it at will - the battery.

Episode 2: The Age of Invention

Just under 200 years ago, scientists discovered something profound: that electricity is connected to another of nature's most fundamental forces - magnetism. In the second episode, Jim discovers how harnessing the link between magnetism and electricity would completely transform the world, allowing us to generate a seemingly limitless amount of electric power which we could utilise to drive machines, communicate across continents and light our homes. This is the story of how scientists and engineers unlocked the nature of electricity in an extraordinary century of innovation and invention.

Episode 3: Revelations and Revolutions

Electricity is not just something that creates heat and light; it connects the world through networks and broadcasting. After centuries of man's experiments with electricity, the final episode tells the story of how a new age of real understanding dawned - how we discovered electric fields and electromagnetic waves. Today, we can hardly imagine life without electricity - it defines our era. As our understanding of it has increased, so has our reliance upon it, and today we're on the brink of a new breakthrough, because if we can understand the secret of electrical superconductivity, we could once again transform the world.

Feel free to view/post down below. Here is one I thought worth posting here to feature it:

This is an excellent series, Prof Jim Al-Khalili is master of science exposition and manages to convey the historical thought processes that both stymied and stimulated progress, elucidating the big ideas that have led us to our current understanding with authentic replications of landmark experiments, and often the original apparatuses or locations. His enthusiasm is infectious and never becomes condescending. It's swift, concise, perfectly articulated and covers in five minutes what his only contemporary, Brian Cox, takes an hour to labour over, and without the constant frivolous location changes or gurning at the camera from halfway up a frickin' sand dune - if Brian Cox's style is classic PBS; Al-Khalili is classic BBC. 

His other productions are likewise unmissable gems: 

  • Atom 
  • Chemistry: A Volatile History 
  • The Secret Life of Chaos 
  • Everything and Nothing (this last one especially is a real treat for anyone interested in the vacuum)

I would like to invite whoever "MrVibrating" is to send me an email about the possibility of writing for PESN on a regular basis.

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."
