Nikola Tesla once remarked: “Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point in the universe.”
What Tesla said has been realised by Paramahamsa Tewari, a former Executive Director of Nuclear Power Corporation of India, who invented a Reactionless AC Synchronous Generator (RLG), which, in a more simplified language, is a generator that draws energy from vacuum.
Such is the significance of this invention that electrical engineer Toby Grotz, who has worked on the testing of the Hubble Telescope, called it the “biggest breakthrough in rotating electrical machine design since Faraday’s invention of the electrical motor in 1832”.
Tewari’s invention has been featured in a docudrama called ‘Out of the Void’. It premiered on October 28th, 2015, at the Vienna International Film Festival and is scheduled to be released in theatres across Austria in March.
The film traces the works of pioneering researchers involved in the field of extracting energy from vacuum.
Who is Tewari?
Born on January 6, 1937, Tewari has been involved in engineering project management for construction of nuclear power stations.
He graduated in Electrical Engineering from Banaras Engineering College in 1958. Tewari retired in 1997 from his position as Executive Nuclear Director, Nuclear Power Corporation, Department of Atomic Energy, and is the former Project Director of the Kaiga Atomic Power Project.
What is RLG?
According to the laws of physics, since some of the energy fed to a machine is used to overcome the force of gravity and the effects of friction and air resistance, no machine can operate at 100 per cent efficiency.
Tewari’s invention, however, generated 238 per cent more electrical power in an experiment conducted in 2014, thereby defying the laws that state otherwise.
The machine built by Tewari is the size of a motorbike and essentially uses a magnetic field to create a reactionless generator, which in turn is used to create electrical power.
A battery or AC supply is needed to infuse power in the generator following which it produces power sustaining itself on electrons in a vacuum, without requiring the external supply.
“Space is the only reality, and has the potential to produce massive amounts of power if put through right technology,” said Tewari, who has applied for an international patent for his device in the US.
What does it run on?
The energy that Tewari’s machine uses is Aether (or Ether).
Aether is a space-filling substance or field believed to exist in the region of the universe above the terrestrial sphere. Aristotle included it as a fifth element. It is thought to be necessary as a transmission medium for the propagation of electromagnetic or gravitational forces.
The Upanishads, written thousands of years ago, mention it as the origin of matter. Even Albert Einstein admitted that aether exists.
“According to the general theory of relativity space without aether is unthinkable; for in such space there not only would be no propagation of light, but also no possibility of existence for standards of space and time (measuring-rods and clocks), nor therefore any space-time intervals in the physical sense,” he wrote in his 1920 paper ‘Ether and the Theory of Relativity’.
On July 10, 1931, Tesla announced in ‘The Brooklyn Eagle’ that he had “harnessed the cosmic rays and caused them to operate a motive device”. That is called the Tesla Generator. The machine is supposed to generate electricity without “consuming any fuel”. The “cosmic rays” he was referring to was aether.
But though the scientific community believed that such an energy might exist, they were unable to harness it. Tewari’s invention actually does that.
The Tesla generator uses what is usually wasted in a generator and turns it into a source of power, which technically increases the efficiency of a machine.
The impact of Tewari’s invention on science
Many scientists have been firm on their belief that the second Law of Thermodynamics, which states that as energy is transferred or transformed, more and more of it is wasted, cannot be modified.
Also called the law of entropy (the amount of energy in a system that is no longer available for doing mechanical work), it cites that everything is doomed to increasing disorder until all comes to an end.
Tewari’s pioneering work will force the laws of physics to be modified and recognise that space is not empty.
He explains in his paper ‘Spiritual Foundations‘ referring to the concept explained in Upanishads:
“A material fluid during motion loses energy due to internal friction and comes to rest. The superfluid aakaash, while spinning, is itself the basic state of cosmic energy for creating matter. For instance, the electron is the aakaash spinning at its limiting speed and since there is no loss of energy due to motion of aakaash, the electron is eternally existent till it meets its opposite particle when it is annihilated producing a tiny flash of light.”
He adds: “When aakaash circulates around a center at the highest possible speed, it creates fundamental particles of stable matter, like the production of bubbles and foam from water when the same is set in motion. The universal matter is created out of prana since prana is aakaash in motion and aakaash is the primordial superfluid substratum of the universe.”
Tewari’s machine appears to be the one many experts have been looking for: a machine that works all the time, in any place, without any flaws.
How will this invention benefit the world?
To be succinct, it is a major boost to those envisaging a future of free (or renewable) energy.
Free energy is an energy for the continuous generation of which you do not need to spend anything additional. In other words, extremely low costs for maintenance and operations are involved; there are no variable expenditures; and, it is not detrimental to the environment.
The simplest examples of free energy are wind and solar energy, also known as renewable energy.
As fossil fuels continue to deplete besides causing an environmental damage of proportions that has become a major cause of worry for all countries in the world, this new invention is perhaps what the world was waiting for.
Tewari says that the power generated from such a source can be provided to rural areas. It will solve the problem of rising power consumption. As India pushes itself into the manufacturing sector, such an invention might prove to be a boon for the industries.
But the most significant benefit lies for humanity.
