To produce electricity you simply convert energy from one form into electrical energy. One needs a fuel source to supply this energy.

We can hope it works. We just have to hope that Newton's law was wrong. It's not really a law anyways... it's more of a guess at how he thought things probably worked.



Remember, they laughed at the theory of relativity!



Actually, I doubt many people have laughed at the theory of relativity. It's hard to make math funny.

thats because of his theories on gravity and anvances in special relativity. I think the laws of thermodynamics still hold some sway.

Okay considering when the principa mathematica was written Newton was ahead of his time. In fact most of his equations and systems describing the movements are still used to help predict future positions of objects in the solar system now. Today it is only when you start to count on larger sections of the cosmos that Newtons theory of the movement of the stellar objects starts to show cracks. Newton wasn't wrong in fact he was more right than anyone before or after him till Einstein, who with his theory of general relativity started to fill the gaps in Newtons work.
The laws of thermodynamics hold out till now and so far are still the most valid description of energy movement and production in the universe. You cannot create or destroy energy you can only change its shape and in any energy transformation you lose a certain amount of energy in the form of heat. The examples are all over the world and universe.

You don't get something for nothing. Thats why the ideas of perpetual motion machine makes me laugh.

But you ever find one that work you let me know.

Since when did ebay UK have cgi in front on the web address anyway? ubblol



For as long as I've been using them. I'm not sure how exactly the web site works, but the cgi subdomain has been there for a long time. they have a few of them actually, there is a cgi6.ebay.com subdomain linked to in the "other items" page. This is not a phishing site at all - they would have some thing before the .com and after the ebay.

its said that you cant create something from nothing, but then how can one cell split and becomes two cells? i know this is effectively spiltting one thing in two, so how can the other two halves appear to make two wholes? confused theres probably a really simple explanation that u'm just not seeing here.

help anyone?

Posted:This particular machine may not work at producing electricity the way the site claims. It is perfectly possible to create an electricity generator that creates elevctricity without using any external fuel sources and uses heat transfer (in parts) to its advantage. And there is nothing Newton, Einstien or anyone else for that matter has writen that contradicts it. Although Newton's work actually supports it.
