Is there any Physicists that think Free Energy could maybe be possible?

    Hello Again,

    I hope I don't come across as an a@# or worse! I have talked to a couple physicists and when you get to this subject they just shut down. "It is impossible so no more conversation!"

    I know it has been tried by much smarter people than me. I might look at things differently though and I believe I have done it. All the math works out and even physical tests of most of the math. There is only 1 thing I am not 100% sure of. I need a magnetic engineer if there is such a thing that can figure the fields for a segmented magnetic disc.

    I know some of you will think I am an old fool. My only answer is that I have in the long ago past solved a couple of problems that an engineer said he'd not been able to figure out. Not because of my education, just my problem solving way of doing things.

    Thank You. I have viewed that site and many like it before. Was hoping there was something new in the works.

    My work does not utilize wind/wave/solar power. I am refering to a machine using magnetics that will run it's self. Parts will wear out and all that so it won't 'Run Forever' but will for several years. No fuel power required otherwise! I know it is supposed to be impossible, I still think I have got it worked out. Again, I have even talked to the professor @ MWSU and he has said my math was correct. When I told him what I was working on he 'Shut Down' saying it's not possible and he had no more time for me in any way.

    There really isn't much to say here. If you truly are getting more energy out than you are putting into it then what is actually happening is that you are getting energy from somewhere unaccounted for.
    For instance:
    Suppose I take an electric motor and generator and hook the shafts together and then hook the electric output from the generator to the motor through some super-duper high-tech gee-whiz over-unity transformer made from unobtainium. (Yes, I am being sarcastic, such a device is not possible). No matter, in my own crackpot mind I believe it will work. Also hooked between the motor and generator is a fan. My idea is to relax on a sunny day in my back yard with this device sitting next to me to provide a breeze. I set the whole thing down start the device turning manually and it starts and CONTINUES to turn. WOW! I think I am the answer to the worlds energy problems. What has actually happened here is the wind is blowing the blades of the fan and the motor generator pair are nothing but a drain on it. It APPEARS to the less-than-informed that it is a perpetual motion machine. It is NOT! Nor is whatever you have done.

    That pretty much sums it up.
