Howard Johnson passed away January 2nd, 2008
Posted on Friday, January 04, 2008 @ 23:46:03 EST by vlad

General Howard R. Johnson born June 1st, 1919, in Pound, Virginia, USA, famous for his PPM (Permanent Magnet Motor) patent, USP # 4,151,431, author of "The Secret World of Magnets" book (2dn edition - 2006) has died on the evening of Jan. 2, 2008 in Blacksburg, Virginia.

"Johnson has built many novel linear and rotary motors and at least one self-powering magnetic rotary device — later stolen in a mysterious break-in at his laboratory — personally tested by the present author." [Tom Bearden]

Science & Mechanics (Spring 1980)

"Amazing Magnet-Powered Motor"
by Jorma Hyypia

"We don't grant patents on perpetual motion machines," said the examiners at the U.S. Patent Office. "It won't work because it violates the law of Conservation of Energy," said one physicist after another. But because, inventor Howard Johnson is not the sort of man to be intimidated by such seemingly authoritative pronouncements, he now owns U.S. Patent No. 4,151,431 which describes how it is possible to generate motive power, as in a motor, using only the energy contained in the atoms of permanent magnets. That's right. Johnson has discovered how to build motors that run without an input of electricity or any other kind of external energy!

The monumental nature of the invention is obvious, especially in a world facing an alarming, escalating energy shortage. Yet inventor Johnson is not rushing to peddle his creation as the end-all solution to world- wide energy problems. He has more important work to do. First, there's the need to refine his laboratory prototypes into workable practical devices -in particular a 5,000-watt electric power generator already in the building. His second and perhaps more difficult major challenge: persuade a host of skeptics that his ideas are indeed practical.

Johnson, who has been coping with disbelievers for decades, can be very persuasive in a face-to-face encounter because he can not do more than merely theorize; he can demonstrate working models that unquestionably create motion using only permanent magnets. When this writer was urged by the editor of Science & Mechanics to make a thousand mile pilgrimage to Blacksburg, Virginia, to meet with the inventor, he went there as an "open-minded skeptic" and as a former research Scientist determined not to be fooled. Within two days, this former skeptic had become a believer. Here's why.

This is a sad  day for many of us in the New Energy community. We have lost a great man. Though this is hypothetical, if Mr. Johnson can help us "from the other side", what a gain that would be for us all!
