um, first of all, why was my post locked? all i wanted was to know how to patent my idea.if adding this post is in anyway out of line then i apologise and please inform me and explain why. should my post have been under another topic? if it was locked just because the idea is far fetched then i do not think that is fair as i had not yet received a satisfying answer to my question. there are still alot of areas of pysics that are not fully understood and i dont think we should ever completely dismiss any idea. second,i have already had a couple trusted people to look over the plans already, my friend who is a straight-A student and a teacher, neither could see anything wrong with it (although they both told me they probably overlooked something and not to get my hopes up). i do understand energy conservation, ive been getting lectured about it for months from my friend who was extremely skeptical(he made me abandon more than 50 designs until i came up with this one, which he admitted to have no fault with) plus we covered it in tenth grade. i myself am not a total noob when it comes to this stuff, i started high voltage experiments(tesla coils and stuff) when i was 11 (5 years ago) and my room has been a lab ever since. last year i took a year off school to do a marine engineering inturnship(although im more into aerospace) so yes, im pretty confident with my knowledge and the design and id just like to know how to have my intelectual property rights protected(even if it doesnt workout) because something this big will definately be high priority for property theives/pirates if it is successful or even now in the planning stages. As soon as i get the patent i will post designs and everything but until then i need to figure out how to get the damn patent... anybody know how?
