|History has shown that the most significant breakthroughs in science
and technology arose as marked departures from conventional thinking.
Generally such new views challenged long established paradigms and were
therefore ignored or actively resisted by the old guard.
review process, which normally is relied on to determine which ideas
out of the many should be considered and eventually become funded, is
often subject to this bias. As a result, new ideas that could
potentially produce scientific and/or technological breakthroughs are
generally ignored by the conventional science and media and
consequently rarely get noticed by the business community for funding.
Thus most work carried out in today's research institutions tends to be
traditional, rather than innovative.
The Xtreme Science Foundation (XSF) will be
formed to circumvent this problem. It will serve as an open access
podium for all inventors/innovators out there to present their work for
proper and honest validation and as a vehicle through which donors may
reward/fund the high-quality leading-edge techno-scientific
accomplishments/research that otherwise would have great difficulty
finding recognition and financial support. We hope such an organization
will help to discover new technologies & concepts necessary to
mankind's survival in the new age that is now upon us. Fortunately,
there is no shortage of open mind and extremely innovative people out
there who have no problems challenging what many still believe to be
Criteria for winning the XS-NRG prize
inventors who have a working prototype device of a truly fuel-less
energy generator are invited to apply. Fuel-less means the generator
does not consume (need) any fuel for operation beyond what it requires
for start-up (batteries, super-capacitors or other type of energy
storage devices that are alternatively charged and discharged by the
device itself during operation are OK). The class of technologies we're
targeting with this first prize are primarily electro-magnetic,
electro-static or plasma-based devices capable of tapping the
vacuum/zero-point/cosmic energy fields for useful power.
validation tests will be conducted by, preferably, three independent
reputable laboratories (university or industrial, government and/or
private) that will be selected from those willing to accept to
participate in this historic, public-demanded challenge. The labs will
have to sign an NDA with the inventor and also agree to widely publish
the results of the tests (positive or negative) soon after completion.
on an agreed-upon protocol with the inventor (open to public scrutiny)
the testing labs will certify that the device works as claimed and, on
a stand-alone, self-powered basis, can continuously generate a minimum
of at least one watt of excess (useful) average output power (similar
to Dr. Harold E. Puthoff's "One-Watt Challenge"). These criteria are
simple and clear in defining success, consequently trying to avoid
otherwise-complex input/output power and energy measurements (such
measurements are difficult for most people to understand, and
are open to never-ending challenges by the experts themselves).
understand that the self-powered-operation requirement will limit the
number of free energy devices which could qualify for the XS-NRG prize,
but we think the public would want to start with examining these
extraordinary claims first.
In case of more than one device
being successful, a vote taken among all the XSF fund
contributors will choose the winning technology
based on other valuable characteristics exhibited by each device, such
as actual useful power generated, developmental stage, marketability,
power per size/weight ratio, etc. All these considerations will be
proposed and agreed upon in advance.
The fund will cover the
expenses incurred by all candidates during the testing phase.
Candidates will only have to agree to the wide publication of the test
results (passed or failed). The inventors can each choose whether or
not they want to disclose any other information about themselves and/or
their technology. There are no other obligations between the inventor
and the XSF administrators with respect to the future of the respective
technology. Certainly, the successful inventors will trigger a lot of
interest from the outside world, and they are entitled to use
their newly acquired status to proceed with further development of
their invention, as they see fit.
The goal of the XSF and its
XS-NRG prize is to prove or disprove to science and the public the
truth behind these extraordinary claims for breakthrough energy
devices. Even with the majority of experts giving a very low
probability for these claims to be true, the potential positive impact
if just one of them turns out to be real is so great that we cannot
afford to ignore them. Actually, given the present condition of the global
energy and environmental crisis we already experience, we have a duty
to explore the slightest chance that a claim is real.
=====================We have examined the "exotic" energy research community for a number of
years, with an open mind but a critical eye. We believe that
open-mindedness is the hallmark of good science. We also believe that
central to good scientific practice is the assessment of evidence, even
when this assessment may challenge the current scientific paradigm --
the prevailing set of assumptions about how the world works.
actual performance of a small number of more or less complex but
ingenious nonconventional energy devices remain to this day to be
confirmed by science, and their unusual functioning properly explained.
We also know that suppression of disruptive technologies for economic
and/or "national security" reasons is officially happening through the
patent office and the Invention Secrecy Act of 1951.
science can objectively examine the evidence, the verdict on the
reality of such devices is still out there. That uncertainty is exactly
what the Xtreme Science Foundation and the XS-NRG prize will try to
remove, with the help of science and all of the responsible people and
organizations out there.
By proving or disproving such extraordinary claims, XSF will:
remove the uncertainty -- in the public's mind and among scientists --
surrounding these devices and, consequently, clean up and speed up the
identification and recognition of breakthrough research in the energy
- Protect the public against false claims (fraudulent or
not) by XSF becoming a prerequisite test to pass for any such
technology before soliciting investment,
- Contribute to leveling
the playing field for every inventor (today, maverick inventors
struggle outside the mainstream of funding and acknowledgment),
out of the box thinking to resolve the great problems we're facing in
our struggle to safeguard a decent future for humankind and all life on
