    Thought you guys might find this article interesting and that maybe it would spark some conversation.

    What are your thoughts on this? I think it's pretty incredible, but there has to be something that limits the process so that he can't take power away from the motor completely.

    Video demonstration:

    Here's the guy's website.

    He's allowed his ignorance of science to destory his life. What a tragic story. I hope he gets the help he needs (hint: it isn't help from an MIT phycisist or engineer that he needs).

    Anyway, we don't give an audience to crackpottery here. Perpetual motion machines are a banned topic - largely since there really isn't anything we can do to debunk the claim. He hasn't provided a detailed schematic or description of how it works -- because he doesn't know. So it is useless to speculate on which particular scientific concept that he doesn't understand is responsible for what he is seeing.
