The Tom Bearden Website

Lt. Col. Thomas Bearden (ret.) M.Sc.


I first found the web site while searching for information on free energy.  The information I have found here has been the best and most reliable that I have found anywhere.  Thank you for making this available.

There is enough energy inside the space in this empty cup to boil all the oceans of the world.  This is a fact well known to the scientific community, and was, for example, a favorite quote of Nobel Prize winning physicist Richard Feynman.


Two Nobel prizes were awarded in 1957 to Lee and Yang for substantiating the extraction process for this energy.

Tom Bearden
referring to "Broken Symmetry"

Since the archaic old Electrical Engineering model was formed in the 1880s and 1890s, modern physics—including special and general relativity, quantum mechanics, quantum electrodynamics, gauge field theory, quantum field theory, and particle physics—has been born and developed. Physics has made a century of progress since the old EE model was “frozen” in 1892. Modern physics assures us that the vacuum/spacetime has enormous energy, and that it continually interacts with every charge in a circuit, system, and the universe, continually exchanging enormous—even mind-boggling—energy with it. Indeed, all forces in all our systems are produced by the interaction and exchange of virtual particles of the vacuum.

To correct the horribly flawed EE problem, the escalating world energy problem, physicists in several disciplines—not just EEs and environmental scientists—must be directly involved. Trying to use electrical engineers to solve the problem—that their own discipline and model create in the first place—is utterly useless.

Tom Bearden explains how the Kanzius process burns water and how precursor engineering can engineer reality itself.  90 minute DVD.
Released April 2014

   I am convinced that Tom is one of mankind’s greatest scientists.  His fantastic ability to investigate tons of scientific literature from all around the world, find connections between them and make his own observations is outstanding.  The significance of his work to the world in general, is inestimable (although those whose businesses are endangered by his work think otherwise)

Oil Industry Facts

So called “Green” energy has had no effect to date on worldwide crude oil and condensate production, as 2016 production projects to be 78.33 million barrels per day, almost identical with the 2015 production figure.
Oil & Gas Journal, Dec. 5, 2016

Production residue is often radioactive due to high concentration of Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material

Bunker fuel for ships, which is little more than asphalt, can produce as much pollution from a single ship in a year as 50m cars and is the most polluting fuel in the world.

Canadian tar sands are complex operations involving mining and upgrading two tons of sand to produce a barrel of low quality crude oil.

Natural gas liquids and biofuels generally have lower energy content than crude oil and are generally not widely applicable transport fuels in their own right.

Shale oil requires constant investment in drilling to maintain production.  Typical oil wells in shale plays decline as much as 60%/year, compared with 7-10%/year for conventional wells

Energy from the vacuumTM is clean and unlimited
No dependence on foreign oil from politically unstable areas
No pollution
No dependence on strategically vulnerable centralized power and distribution systems
No radioactive waste disposal problems from nuclear power plants

The resource types are few but enormous;  their exploitation massively capital intensive with subsurface technical complexity and unprecedented aboveground socioeconomic challenges.

The Motionless Electromagnetic Generator (MEG)

Has produced up to 100 times more power than was input, by extracting free energy from the vacuum.  The MEG has been independently constructed, and its overunity performance independently replicated, by other researchers.  US Patent awarded March 26, 2002. Invented by Tom Bearden and four colleagues.


. . . maybe, just maybe . . .
March 26, 2002 will be the date I put in my diary as the day the world changed—forever.

How the MEG works

Current status



The MEG's development was funded entirely by the inventors' savings and a few modest donations.

America's civilian nuclear technology cost a total of a trillion federal dollars yet delivers less energy than wood. The Economist says of nuclear power plants that not one, anywhere in the world, makes commercial sense.

Hot fusion research has received billions of dollars of Government money for over 50 years, AND HAS YET TO PUT A SINGLE WATT OF POWER INTO THE GRID.


“There are at least 20 or more legitimate overunity EM power systems by various inventors and researchers in the U.S. alone”—Tom Bearden

But free electrical energy is nothing new

U.S. Navy, General Electric and Stanford University used free energy system in 1930s.  Network Analyzer was completely self-powered by negative resistors

Suppression of free energy technologies violates Article 1, sec. 8 clause [8] of the U.S. Constitution which mandates the progress of science by disclosure of discoveries after a limited term.

We note that a single replicable experiment can and does negate any theoretical model that contradicts it


ATTENTION POWER GENERATION INDUSTRY:  The Bohren Experiment produces 18 times more energy than is input (in the accounted Poynting flow), any time or place it is performed—it can readily be developed to produce excess clean heat for power generation.

The Kawai overunity magnetic motor can be built exactly from the Patents using high-speed switching.  Teruo Kawai held nothing back in the Patents.  Motor will also self-power (close-loop).

Any electrical engineering department can build a successful magnetic Wankel engine, since its principles are already in electrical engineering. The motor simply eliminates its back mmf, so that it continuously accelerates and can power a load with only some switching and control input. It is also easily close-looped, to make it totally self-powering.

Newly developed Grand Unified Field Theory by AIAS Director Dr. Myron Evans provides solid mathematical grounding for the extraction of free EM energy from the scalar curvature.

Classical EM Theory does not.



Even the best internal-combustion engines still waste more than 80% of the energy created by burning gasoline.

Precisely arranged, a permanent magnet can be induced to briefly fire a force about ten thousand times more powerful than the direct magnetic interaction.  Harnessing these inexhaustible powerful pulses can produce a permanent self-powering magnetic motor.  Howard Johnson spent a lifetime researching this phenomenology.
