alternative power sources
    #453555 - 11/10/01 01:48 AM (15 years, 9 months ago)

ok my first bright flash of inspiration on this subject came one year out of high school. thinking about those mirrors - i forget what they're called so i called them "one way mirrors" or maybe "two way mirrors" - anyway the ones the cops use in the interrogation room where from one side it looks like a mirror and from the other side you can see through it. i didn't understand how this worked (still don't exactly understand but have a much better idea) and thought ok if you can see through from one side but not the other that means that light is only able to travel through this substance in one direction. if i can see the guy on the other side but he can't see me that means light is coming from his side to mine (into my eyes) but not from my side to his. so i thought ok build a box of this substance, this special glass, and have all the mirrors facing outwards so that light can get in but not out. put this box out in the sun and it will collect more and more light, unable to get out only bounce around inside!!! leave it out for a week or a month and the light inside will get more and more concentrated...open a pinhole in the box and out shoots your super-concentrated light beam!!!!!
won't work, at least not with the standard mirror in the police station, see they've got the lights on in the interrogation room but not in the other room which is why they can't see you. or something. but are there any other substances which work 100%? only allowing light to travel through one way? could we build these boxes and save sunlight that is being "wasted" outside our atmosphere?


ok idea number two which i had recently, not very practical at this stage but id love to hear some thoughts.

a metal object moving through a magnetic field creates an electrical current. the earth has a massive and powerful magnetic field. the earth is also spinning very very fast, and it's field is spinning with it. if we somehow got a very large wire and made it stay "still" relative to the spinning field, or sent it spinning in the opposite direction, wouldn't it create a massive electrical current?

maybe this is a crackpot idea, i don't know how much energy it would take to keep something spinning against the earth's rotation, maybe it would take more energy than it would generate...anyway that was my idea for last week.

so if anyone has any thoughts or any crackpot ideas of their own please share! oh yeah and if you steal my idea and get rich that's ok...just don't let my super light laser beam fall into the wrong hands....

>>ok my first ... super-concentrated light beam

We already have this, it's called a laser and what you described is basically the concept of a laser beam.

no no no the point is how the light is collected in the box, it could then be used for anything you can think of that requires heat energy, the super light beam or "laser" as you call it is but one of it's many uses.

If we learn how to open up wormholes at a specific point then we could, say, put one on top of the other so that if you were to drop something into the bottom one it would come out of the top one and just keep going on like that forever..it would reach meteoric speed and create unlimited energy. Not that we are anywhere near capable of doing that though.

I think free energy machines have probably already been created, but we don't know about them because "they" still want us to pay for energy.

Ever seen Chain Reaction? Energy is a multi-billion dollar industry, just like the drug war... Free energy would bring everyone just a little bit closer to equality, which destroys the point of capitalism, imho.

every time the light reflects from a mirror energy is lost.
Lasers are the syncronus emmision of photons i believe. Meaning they are all pushing along at the same frequency.

check out:

www.fuelcell.com

This will be the new age of energy for the world when the time comes.. They have been using this technology for everything important for decades (space shuttle, underground facilities) but the monopolistic grip the oil tycoons have on us is too great to get it serrious attention...
