Dustin HughesWith funding and time, i could make a self sufficient perpetual generator. Its uses no fuel of any sort. It runs solely off of kinetic energy and the magnetic field it creates. One unit roughly 18" tall can produce 120v Dc constant and will continue to run until physically stopped. It has virtually zero matenance and could run for years on end. If i were to build one say the size of a nuclear reactors silo it could power entire cities. If conjoined conjoined with a battery bank and a green energy source such as wind or solar it could power entire countries. Self sufficient, zero maintenance. And poduces electricity without using or needing electricity, can literally make free power.. can be used on small to very large scales. Noone will patten my product due to the fact it would replace the entire grid and put millions of power plant workers out of a job. Akon think about this

Brad WoodlandGood for you but how about trying to step up from peace to happiness worldwide? Peace is merely happy people acting unhappy and unhappy people acting happy. Although that is a great idea, it cannot be perfected untill we reach beyond. In that way, we lie to each other. Jesus was right to ask for peace but that was merely a stepping stone toward worldwide happiness. Equality won't be reached until we all focus on not only helping others in need, but helping others to be happy, and not for the reason of giving yourself a warm heart, but for the reason that I believe we're here. That is that God put Adam and Eve in Paradise as a test to God's trust. As the story goes, they were both told not to eat from the forbidden fruit tree, with God knowing that they eventually would, he was testing them both to see if they would pick the apple "for" each other, or pick the apple for themselves. Greed is the evil that harms us all, and my belief is that we cannot discover the universe untill we reach equality. But hey, that's just my opinion. These days not only greed is the evil we live with, but revenge is evil's twin. Thoughts anyone????
