Tin foil hats...that is so stupid. They are useless without a copper lining! <br><br><!--EZCODE IMAGE START--><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v371/ZakkVanDime/message%20boards/TinFoilHat_puton.jpg" style="border:0;"/><!--EZCODE IMAGE END--> <p></p><i></i>

"The helmets amplify frequency bands that coincide with those allocated to the US government between 1.2 Ghz and 1.4 Ghz. According to the FCC, These bands are supposedly reserved for ''radio location'' (ie, GPS), and other communications with satellites (see, for example, [3]). The 2.6 Ghz band coincides with mobile phone technology. Though not affiliated by government, these bands are at the hands of multinational corporations.<br><br>It requires no stretch of the imagination to conclude that the current helmet craze is likely to have been propagated by the Government, possibly with the involvement of the FCC. We hope this report will encourage the paranoid community to develop improved helmet designs to avoid falling prey to these shortcomings."<br><br>LOL thanks 5E6A <p></p><i></i>

By the way, in the Movie "Signs" from which the still above was taken, the kids who started wearing the tinfoil hats were right.....<br><br>I don't know if the tinfoil hats preceded the government's alleged ability to microwave and in other ways get non auditory "sound" into people's heads, but there are credible articles I've seen that say they can do just that. Tin foil hats may not help but it doesn't mean that those things don't happen.<br><br>And I always think of our good friend Puharich, controller of those who channel "the nine" who worked on various ways to get sound into people's heads without the use of the normal auditory pathways...purely to help the deaf, you understand. <br><br>Someone here may recognize this as well, but I can't remember what this revolved around. In some high profile case of parapolitical significance, someone was testifying and was in great distress and said "The CIA is in my head" or something to that extent that given the context seemed quite possible. Anyone remember that? Probably not enough info..<br><br>As for the Steorn site, it won't be long before they reveal what's up, unless it's just a total scam and they flee. I don't think it's an Xbox thing (though they use a PR company that also works with Microsoft) and I don't think it's "Lost", though there is a tantalizing clue in which a poster on the forum accidentally say "VanGraph" generators instead of VandenGraph. A google on vanGraph by another poster found a site that purports to be Romanian and refers to a wifi hotspot...however the one audio file on that site was an Irish guy talking about free energy.<br><br>There was also a symbol on that <!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://vangraph.ro/">vangraph</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--> site that kinda looked like the ones players are gathering for the Lost game, but I don't think so...it didn't follow the same design for the outside border. (Shockwave is not available for Linux so I can't view the site without switching over to Windows...but I dont' think the audio file is working anymore anyway.)<br><br>So it's some kind of viral marketing or new Alternate Reality Game...I'm certain. Not because I dismiss the idea of new breakthroughs in physics...just that I dismiss that THESE GUYS made that breakthrough. Anyone who thinks "charging cell phones" is the most exciting thing about "free energy" doesn't get it, I'd say. <br><br>There was a game way back...about 10 years ago...a friend of mine did the first part that was free, but basically it was a full immersion type game. You had to solve a mystery and there were websites all over the web you had to find, but you would also get phone calls (recorded) and would use info to make your own calls and hear recorded messages. The very invitation to the game was a mystery...the email is white text on a white background that could only be seen by highlighting. Anyway, it looked like a blast but he never paid to join the game.<br><br>Or maybe they believe their own claims...and they really have these machines...but this is sure an odd way to go about things.<br><br>Here's a <br><br><!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://comment.zdnet.co.uk/rupertgoodwins/0,39020691,39281444,00.htm">zdnet article</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--> about them.<br><br>And a new blog called <!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://www.steornwatch.com/about">steornwatch</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--> which is trying to examine all this.<br><br>Of course, steornwatch could ALSO be run by steorn. <p></p><i></i>

The website's super-generic, they've sprung from noowhere (practically anyway. archive searches people have done reveal their older versions of the site have never had more than the bare minumum placeholder vague info and some contact details)... Nothing specific, more a case of nothing to suggest they ARE for real! Anyone ca start a limited company, anyone can make a flashy website.

Whether or not they believe they've genuinely discoverd something, it's undeniably a publicity stunt in that to date all they've done is stirred up controversy/discussion.<br><br>The main reason I think it's a hoax/scam/experiment NOT about faking a free energy machine per se is that the idea is 'too good to be true' in the sense that a perpetual motion machine almost synonymous with fakery. I mean, if you had to think of the most obvious idea for a hoax psudo-science invention it's the first thing to spring to mind... you could only go one better by claiming to have turned lead into gold! <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :rolleyes --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/eyes.gif ALT=":rolleyes"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://p216.ezboard.com/brigorousintuition.showUserPublicProfile?gid=orz@rigorousintuition>orz</A> at: 8/28/06 10:30 am<br></i>

July epiphany?

Postby dickdecent » Thu May 10, 2007 6:56 am

Hey Orz/ everyone

Just thought I'd revive this thread as things have moved on quite a bit since we last discussed.
What is the feeling on the board about the latest developments with regard to Steorn?

The validation and revelation schedule that was promised by Steorn and McCarthy seems to be progressing as promised, and I for one am looking forward to July, when we are due to have a public and web-wide 'hands on' exhibition in London of the device and the technology behind it.

I for one have always had a gut feeling that McCarthy was a genuine guy, and on that and a couple of other tech bases, have suspended my skepticism , and taken a wait, hope and see what occurs line.

How do we feel about these guys now?

I tentatively suggest that the viral marketing possibility is drifting further and further away from likelyhood, and referring to my previous postings, that's leaving us with fewer and fewer possibilities, other than a genuine device!

Previously stated possibilities:

1. out and out hoax
2. viral marketing
3. genuine error/naievete on their part
4. the device is real!!

Whaddya think Orz baby???... still sure this is all bogus and think the device is;

I quote Orz [including his dubious spelling]

" an inherently ludicrous miraculous discovery without a shread of evidence "

So whaddya think guyz?..... Come on, I'm excited :D
Any human system is inherently corrupt.

A reminder about these guys is always good.

I for one, having spent quite a few hours checking these guys out for the last year or so, think the likelihood is that they are for real, ie that the technology is real, and they are being honest and upfront about their business plan and intentions for the future.

Therefore, dont be surprised to see their sudden demise.

On a more positive note, this sounds very interesting;

Maybe i could even go along and check that out - and report back here!
