Tesla, Moray, Bearden, and others have claimed the existence of another source of energy besides those presently in use. Like sun and wind, the source is available without regard to political boundaries. If true, the development of this energy source would be one of the most important events of the century.
"Nature and Nature's laws lay hid in night: God said, 'Let Tesla be,' and all was light." These words, spoken by B.A. Behrend in 1917, illuminate the respect society held for Nikola Tesla early in this century. Tesla was a Serbian-American inventor and researcher who discovered the rotating magnetic field, which forms the basis of most alternating-current machinery in use today. Born in Croatia (Austria-Hungary) in 1856, Tesla's father was a Serbian Orthodox priest. His mother was unschooled but highly intelligent. It wasn't long before Tesla's parents realized that their son was gifted with unusual insight. In her book, "Tesla: Man Out of Time, " Margaret Cheney, a California science writer, offers an interesting anecdote from Tesla's childhood. "The child began when only a few years of age to make original inventions. When he was five, he built a small waterwheel quite unlike those he had seen in the countryside. It was smooth, without paddles, yet it spun evenly in the current. Years later he was to recall this fact when designing his unique bladeless turbine."

Article on the Theories of Keely
by Jerry W. Decker
Who was John W. Keely?
John Keely was an independent researcher specializing in the properties of sound during the mid to late 1800's.
What did Keely discover?
He was purported to have discovered techniques based on incredibly sensitive vibratory mechanisms which would allow the use of the Aether for practical purposes.
What devices did he build?
1) a machine to split the water molecule for the instantaneous release of tremendous pressures
Note on Moray:
According to Mr. Robert Staley, Hollywood, Moray first got the idea for his Radiant Energy device from his Telephone experience. Moray noted, several times while listening in on the lines, a rhythmic hum, which seemed to vary in loudness. It began with a loud note, the next of which was less, and soon on diminishing until it faded out in seven pulses. Having been, a Morman missionary; in his early manhood in the Near East, and having studied some of the ancient philosophies, Moray, put the two and two, together, and began looking for means to capture this very evident surge of power. Staley says Moray accomplished it through the use of an electrical valve, or tube, similar to radio tubes, only these are cold tubes, that is they have no electrically heated filiment which furnishes the means of the ion passage between elements making up the tube, In stead, Moray uses radio.-active materials which provide the 'carrying' means and which are adapted to the rythms of the energy sought. Moray's device, through proper relationships of 'capacitors' or electrical condensers, and 'inductances', or coils of insulated wire, is 'tuned to the frequency of the Radiant energy waves. Thus, they are captured, held, and transformed into a high frequency electricity which can be used to light ordinary incandescent bulbs, heat irons or other heating devices, but which will not run ordinary electric motors because of the high frequency of the current. Motors must bee especially constructed to run on this sort of current. There is some question as to how efficient such motors can be made. Moray was a studen of Tesla it; All Moray's work was done after Tesla's great experiments, ending in 1906, at Colorado Springs. Staley does not know whether Moray was ever an employee of Tesla's or not, nor does he know whether Moray may have been in close correspondence with Tesla at any time, or not. As far as this writer knows, no direct contact between Moray and Telsa has been established. However, I do know that Moray, In letters to me, has showed considerable interest in Tesla and Tesla's work, having indicnted there were several of Tesla's writings he (Moray) would be interested in procuring.
