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