Hello Adolf,

An inverted hysteresis loop means a violation of the 'second law of thermodynamics', which should be possible. See for instance http://xxx.lanl.gov/abs/physics/9912022. If indeed the material of some type of permanent magnets shows an inverted hysteresis loop, then that might explain the OU of several magnetic motors. One should expect a cooling effect, since probably thermic energy is converted into motion. If this is not observed, then another source of energy might be the chaotic ZPE ("always an easy way out").

A PM with negative hysteresis loop means that it takes relatively little energy to de-magnetise the PM (partially), such that the return to the a fully magnetised state of the PM results into a surplus of magnetic field energy. In many setups of magnetic motors a PM is confronted with an opposite magnetic field that may de-magnetise the PM partially, such that the PM's "H-field" follows an inverted hysteresis loop

Steorn's discovery might involve other materials with an inverted hysteresis loop. For instance, a high-mu material with inverted hysteresis loop can be used as magnetic shield and can be magnetised with little energy.

Non-linearity is also an issue, since inverted hysteresis and non-linearity are closely related (critical behaveour, phase transitions) Magnetic properties are manifest many scales of magnitude, and therefore magnetic properties form an excellent candidate for non-linear and negative entropic effects. I suppose an inverted hysteresis loop for magnetic materials at room temperature is as much a holy grail as room temperature superconduction.

Sehr geehrter Hr. Schneider !

I can not see here a direct connection that a scalar field ( whatever it may be) has to do anything with a non-conservative field and longitudinal forces. For me the generation of magnetic longitudinal forces is equivalent with the generation of magnetic monopoles, see my article in arxiv.org under physics/0401151.pdf.

It would be good if Koen van Vlaenderen would give a reference here. Not every overunity claim may fit to this idea. For instance Graneau's experiments with the water arc explosions point out more to cold fusion effects than for longitudinal Ampere forces. Anyway, I have seen Koen van Vlaenderen's article in arxiv.org: From the intention it is a typical top-to-bottom article. If I remember it correctly he overtakes Bearden's hypothesis that the Lorenz gauge relation has to be modified and has to be expanded by a scalar term S. Using this he build together a modified Maxwell theory. However he never comes to the bottom and discusses no concrete examples near to technology with his theory. In my article in arxiv.org under physics/0401151.pdf I tackled the same theme until to the bottom without mentioning Bearden. But anyway his ideas are investigated there. In a appendix of my article you find a classical derivation of the Lorenz gauge from the continuity equation of charge i.e. drho/dt + div j =0.

I did this derivation because for me a question came up: What happens if you want to include in the Maxwell theory the generation of charges, for instance generated by high energy experiments in accelerators, by electron hole pair generation in semiconductors, by ionisation of salts and so on. The answer is: you have to add a source term of charge generation into the continuity equation.
If you look to the derivation of the Lorenz gauge in the mentioned appendix it is immediately clear, that if source terms are added the Lorenz gauge has to be modified as well and a third term appears. Indeed (I agree with Koen van Vlaenderen here) this extension of the theory is important to describe overunity experiments. It is concretely applied in the description of the Yusa-Sakaki FET which is a real overunity device as I believe to have shown in the same article .

This third (source) term may be what Bearden denotes as regauging. However I do not believe that it is a real regauging. G.W. Bruhn has a criticising article of Koen van Vlaaenderen's theory in this respect on his website and I believe that he may be correct. In deed without modifying the continuity equation above you can say as well that drho/dt is composed by drho/dt=drho*/dt+ S_L where rho* is the observed charge density rho* and S_L is the Lorenz-source term S_L. Therefore, in the meantime, I believe that this concept of regauging is born in the following way: Tom Bearden heard it from one of these crazy inventors he is in contact permanently. The inventor found that a source term could explain his observations and attributed it to the S_L in the theory without
understanding it fully. Tom Bearden took it over this concept making his impressing science fiction out of that.
And today the whole world babbles about the theme in this way.

Concerning the additonal comments of Thomas Bearden, like : > There are no "static" EM fields in nature, electrical engineering notwithstanding. Instead, what is called a "static" field around a charge, an electret, a magnet, or any dipolarity, is rigorously the result of a nonequilibrium steady state (NESS) system, in thermodynamics terms....etc. see http://www.cheniere.org/correspondence/031304.htm

That sounds more near to science if compared to earlier times. Thanks also for the URL
