I would like to thank Duncan Roads, the editor and publisher of Nexus magazine, for his tireless efforts to bring to light many of the stories of suppression and chicanery that have inhibited the progress of the human race and endangered the very survival of the planet. Nexus, in the company of other great magazines like Exposure, Probe, Steamshovel Press, and Perceptions, is essential reading for anyone concerned with exposing the Big Lies... and the little ones. In a world where common sense is considered radical, Nexus continues to publish information about the development of new and non-polluting technologies, and bravely champions independent thinking, provocative ideas, and feasible solutions. Many of the articles in this book were either first published or reprinted in Nexus.

I would also like to thank the good people at the Auckland Institute of Technology in New Zealand for granting me the resources to research, edit and publish an early "trial" version of this book for the New Zealand market. Without their help and encouragement, their financial support, and their willingness to entertain controversy in the interests of getting the truth out, this book would not have been published.

Much thanks to my publisher, Rudy Shur, for his patience, and his faith in this project. There are very few publishers—if any—in the world today with a list as consistently good and as consistently helpful as his, and it is an honor to be counted among his authors and his friends.

There are literally hundreds of people who helped to bring this book into existence, directly or indirectly. They know who they are and that I am eternally grateful for the work they've done. I would like to publicly remember my teachers, Charles Shulman, Richard Alpert, Sy Jacobi and Leonard Orr, as well as my friends, my first grade teacher Mrs. Poole, my father, whose 1948 discovery linking smoking and heart disease was ignored by the AMA, Stuart Troy, and Wilf Brinsbury. Wilf's encyclopedic knowledge of alternative energy is matched only by his enthusiasm.

Suppressed Inventions and Other Discoveries selfless sharing, and creativity. I also appreciate the help of Alan McLaughlin, publisher of the unique free energy catalogue, Lost Tech Files.

Most important, I would like to express my deepest and undying gratitude to my wife. Thank you, Katherine... for the lot.

We live in an age of marvels. Electronics has made us a global village; the Hubble can enable us to see to the beginning of time itself; we can pin-point our location through satellite navigation systems and hold encyclopedias on a microchip.

We can do all these things, and yet something is radically wrong, terribly wrong. We keep polluting our magnificent home with the rancid waste from our chemical and petroleum industries, despoiling our planet and ourselves for the evanescent glory of the bottom line. We imbalance the most delicate of balances to conform with the logic of a system that is, to put it charitably, horribly out of whack.

Face it: Our entire global immune system is breaking down before our very eyes. Cancer, the defining disease of our time, inexorably increases in virulence, claiming millions of people every year; our climate is becoming more extreme with each passing season; and we seem to be losing the battle with the mighty virus as we breed it into our foodstuffs, our vaccines, and ourselves. Our antibiotics have helped to breed new super strains of bacteria that eat antibiotics for breakfast. Our vaunted educational systems produce graduates with great erudition in inconsequential matters, while illiteracy rises and the incompetent prevail.

And all the while nations become increasingly violent to each other as well as to themselves. The very worst role models are emulated, as some vestigial third brain reptile territoriality takes hold of our collective consciousness, selling itself as "free market economics" or some such nonsense.

In the immortal words of the Chinese curse, we have all been born into "interesting times."

Looking back over the past 100 years or so, when the industrial engine really began to get serious about eating the planet, it is tempting to ask whether or not the results really needed to have happened. Is there some-thing fundamentally wrong with the human experiment, some genetic flaw, some cosmic misunderstanding that has made all this somehow

Suppressed Inventions and Other Discoveries inevitable? Or is it more mundanely political, that we have been taken over and overtaken by a materialist elite whose interests have overridden the common good so often as to be mistaken for the way it has to be?

Perhaps there is just an unwritten conservatism that replenishes a reality construct over and over again until it becomes the paradigm which the culture as a whole accepts automatically, condemning alternatives to limbo, sublimely unconscious to the looming icebergs on the port bow. People seem to know in their bones that that pouring good money after bad is not the way to save the earth. But through rewards and punishments from infancy on we are encouraged to kneel at the alter of denial, to negate our creativity except when that creativity is enlisted to support the system. We are told that this is all there is, that it was meant to be, and that we can't change anything fundamentally.

We seem to need the comfort of predictability, to be thankful when the next moment closely resembles the last, even if both bolster the common dysfunctionality. The "devil you know" kind of thing. And never mind that it has never really worked very well... and it is not likely to work now. We all want acceptance, and to limit that cognitive dissonance between us and the people that matter and the system that really matters.


But somewhere is that place where we know that all this is wrong, that it doesn't really have to be like this, doesn't really have to continue like this until we are all dead on a dead planet. Somewhere we know that within the human spirit is a place of creativity so powerful and so encompassing, that given half a chance we can change this course, change this moment and change history.

And that is what this book is about. It concerns itself with those inventions and ideas that have been developed over the last 100 years or so which, given enough encouragement, might well have led to a radically different culture and economics than the one in which we find ourselves today. Good - indeed, great - ideas have arisen and have been rejected by a society so mired in the dominant paradigm that it could not bestir itself to support its own survival.

Nevertheless, one perseveres in the often vain but necessary hope that success will eventuate. There really isn't any choice. The inventions and discoveries described and explored in this book may one day be developed for all to use and share. But in the meantime I believe that the first step may rest with the dissemination of the knowledge of what was, what might have been, and what may yet be.

In 1979 a New Zealand inventor by the name of Archie Blue astounded the world—or at least that part of the world that was paying attention—with an invention that would allow any car with a gasoline engine to be fueled solely by water. He was awarded a patent for his work, and although he kept certain vital secrets out of his patent diagrams, he did demonstrate his device on numerous public and private occasions. Witnesses from England's Royal Automobile Club announced that the car did indeed run on water, and was in fact getting one hundred miles per gallon.

A group of English investors in the Channel Islands supported Blue. They brought him to the United Kingdom and tested the device, but then, mysteriously, progress was halted. Blue returned to New Zealand and stopped publicizing his invention. Immediately upon his death in 1991, his daughter and son-in-law cleaned out his laboratory, and brought what they described as "junk" to the garbage dump.


Thus, Archie Blue's secrets died with him.

In 1996, I was invited to Australia to witness a demonstration of another mechanism that reputedly allowed a car to run on water. The inventor (who understandably wishes to remain anonymous) had received threats after having conversed with a magazine editor. He was told never to try to put his invention on the market or to write about it in a public media. However, no one stopped him from showing several of us how the device worked in a Ford Cortina.

Running on gasoline, the old Ford could barely manage 4,500 revolutions per minute before it screamed in obvious pain and blue smoke billowed out from the exhaust pipe. However, after the water device was connected, the engine went to 10,500 rpm with nothing but water vapor coming out of the pipe, and no smoke evident at all. Its acceleration was phenomenal. The engine still screamed, but it was obviously happier running on water. Unfortunately, the inventor's garage was later raided, and his equipment destroyed, making further development impossible.

Archie Blue and the aforementioned Australian inventor were not alone in developing their water-fueled automobiles. The first report of such an event was recorded in Dallas, Texas in 1934. Another version of the same idea turned up in 1936, witnessed by hundreds of spectators in England. In the 1950s, Guido Franch astounded automotive engineers with a chemical that allowed water to be burned in exactly the same manner as gasoline. The performance of a car running on this fuel was fantastic.

But despite the obvious successes of such prototypes, not one of these devices is on the market today. Countless inventors have been not-so-gently persuaded to abandon their projects through intimidation tactics such as sabotage and blackmail. Some have even been coerced into surrender by death threats. And should any inventor persist in making his work known, orthodox science can be counted on to intervene and effectively kill the project with rhetoric. Obtaining greater than 100-percent efficiency is, as any sensible scientist knows, impossible. Orthodox engineers would like to have you believe that these inventions somehow violate the "immutable" laws of physics by apparently producing more energy than they are consuming.

For the true innovator there is only theory, and so there are no laws that cannot be broken. Everything in Nature is a catalyst for wonder and discovery, and the authentic inventor welcomes the next moment as an opportunity for creation. Really significant advances have always grown out of the revelations of independent thinkers and tinkerers who were not learned enough to know that they were violating the laws or physics or any other branch of science. Or perhaps, in the pursuit to improve man-kind's quality of life, they simply didn't care.

In our world of research and scientific advancement, it seems only logical to think that if an invention can further the cause of progress, it will eventually find its way into the mainstream of society. After all, the wonders of our post-industrial age are numerous and diverse, ranging from television to antibiotics. If a suppression syndrome has infiltrated our society, how could these modern-day marvels have come into existence?

On the surface, this would appear to be a valid argument. However, the point weakens under scrutiny. For example, television was suppressed for many years by companies with huge investments in the film industry, who believed that movies would become obsolete. Thanks to their pressure development was slowed, and more than thirty years passed after its discovery before television actually made it to the commercial mainstream— even though it was backed by large corporations like RCA.

Antibiotics were released for use on World War II battlefields only because the United States government made a deal with the pharmaceutical companies, granting them patent rights for something they had never even developed. This came after several years of negotiations, at the cost of thousands of lives.

For every once-revolutionary idea that is now commonplace in our daily lives, many more have been suppressed or withheld by those vested interests with a focus on profit or power. Pure self-interest results in strong opposition from multinational corporations, orthodox science, and even our own governments when innovation threatens the status quo. Wealthy and powerful individuals are not inclined to forfeit their fortunes or their authority, even though the human population as a whole would benefit greatly from new technologies.

The suppression of innovation and discovery is an overwhelming and frightening problem. I have put this book together in order to directly address this critical issue, which I believe deserves our utmost attention. These collected articles, some of which may surprise or even shock you, are highly varied, but each and every one is vital to our understanding of the nature of suppression—where it begins, who it affects, and how it is perpetuated. Because the suppression syndrome is so far-reaching, I have grouped the material into four sections, each detailing the struggle of specific ascendancies to maintain their funds and their jurisdiction.

Section I focuses on the suppression of alternative medicine. Powerful pharmaceutical companies and their agents, the orthodox medical societies, are not ready to lose millions of dollars by admitting that there are nontoxic, inexpensive treatments that are effective in the fight against diseases such as cancer and AIDS. Therefore, patients suffering from these and other degenerative illnesses are denied access to possible cures. Many remain unaware that these therapies even exist until there is little, if any, hope for recovery.

The efforts of organized science to suppress the independent researcher are detailed in Section II. Establishment science has yet to examine itself according to the stringent guidelines of its own Scientific Method, the doctrine by which all research and discovery is measured. It seems that if scientists assessed their work objectively, they would find that there is no monopoly on truth, a realization which could undermine their elevated status. What a sad commentary on a branch of knowledge whose constituents should humbly admit that they do not know all the answers—or even all the questions.


How can any "radical" ideas find acceptance in a system whose aim is self-perpetuation, rather than the betterment of humanity?

In Section III you will discover that the public at large remains shockingly ignorant as to the extent of our government's involvement with UFOs and extraterrestrials.


What if our highest powers are in fact sub-Suppressed Inventions and Other Discoveries servant to higher powers?


It is clear that the censorship of sensitive information regarding extraterrestrial life has been carefully orchestrated so as not to upset the power of our dominant social, religious, and political institutions.

Finally, Section IV will introduce you to some of the alternate energy resources that could potentially eliminate our dependence on fossil fuels, and curtail research into the deadly menace of nuclear power. We are not driving around in cars fueled by water, or tapping into the free energy in our atmosphere to light our homes, not because these things are impossible, but because power and petroleum monopolies would crumble if our world ran on the abundant, clean, and safe energy that some inventors were harnessing decades ago. It is therefore "in the best interest" of these monopolies to maintain a system that is destroying our environment and threatening our very lives.

The true nature of suppression is the willingness on the part of everyone with a stake in the system to uphold the power of that system. To ask if there is more out there than meets the eye is to question our very reality, and to ultimately upset the status quo. We don't really know our real power—the power of one ethical and courageous act, of speaking the truth.


Suppressed Inventions and Other Discoveries is my attempt to empower concerned individuals, and to enlighten those who are unaware that there is need for concern.
