Hi Folks!

Thanks to Adolf Schneider for sending some excellent papers on the
'Temperature Pressure Differential Amplifier (TEPPA) System' of Earl
Schlictig as in his patent 4,506,524 which you can read from;

with Earls' patent being at;'4506524'.WKU.&OS=PN/4506524&RS=PN/4506524
I will have all this put together in a webpage when I get some extra
time to work on it, but I wanted to post it to the list for discussion
and for the info to be in the public archives for non-subscribers.

There seems to be something about 'SHAPE' that I can't get a handle on,
several loose correlations which never seemed to jell until I received
the papers from Adolf and read one critical paragraph which says;

"To solve the problem of converting low grade heat to usable power
seemed to require a better knowledge of the behavior of molecules. To
this end I chose the study of microscopic particle motion known as
'Brownian movement' for my graduate study and thesis.

Microscopic particles suspended in water behave like large molecules.

A high powered microscope was set up with camera lucida attachment,
which included a time piece and rotational and linear measuring devices
in the field of view.

Recording facilities were provided to record rotations and linear
displacements of the observed Brownian particles. Two important
discoveries were made.

The ELONGATED particles with ENLARGEMENT AT ONE END had a much greater

(this is a tear drop or egg shape!!! shades of Schauberger...)

It was also found that an elongated particle WITH AN ION on one end had
a much greater probability of moving in the direction of the ionized end

In its reaction with molecules of the solvent liquid, the particle ACTS
LIKE A ONE-WAY VALVE, PUSHING the liquid molecules in the direction
OPPOSITE to the predominant direction of the particle.

This may also cause POLAR MOLECULES of a liquid to MIGRATE INTO TINY
CLUSTERS or regimes such as is shown in the lower diagram in Figure 1.

These discoveries indicated that an engine cycle for converting low
grade heat into useful power with high efficiency should have TWO UNLIKE
WORKING FLUIDS of very different vapor pressures.
One additional note while on this elongated end subject...there was a
scientist who developed a type of flying device that he called

Somewhere in the caves under my house I have a very bad photocopy that
shows one these things hovering next to him...it had a high velocity fan
mounted on the top of an upside down teardrop so that the down flowing
wind would be entrained into a jet that streamed off the point to cause
the thing to fly. He claimed that it was the ideal flying machine
because it was highly efficient and could lift great payloads...his idea
being airships of this design carrying the payload in the large end of
the teardrop.

...For years now I have looked for additional information on this and
found nothing except for one mention of an experiment relating to
Schauberger, where it was claimed that an egg shape, placed in a high
velocity stream of water, would stay in position with almost no
resistance to the flow.

This was based on Schaubergers observations of how fish can remain
almost perfectly still in a high velocity mountain stream and which led
to his 'fish motor'.
Earls' machine is one of the two that I've seen which offers tremendous
possibilities because it WORKS as he stated and the information is
present for study.

Brownian Motion, Maxwells Demon and the shape or charge of the particles
are the keys to the whole thing. Now its NOT free energy as in tapping
aether/zpe, but it taps thermal differentials with as little as 3
degrees Fahrenheit.

Now this is something I've been pondering a long time but never put it
all together until I read the above key statement in Schlictigs patent
(thanks Adolf for sharing that).

So first lets get a handle on Brownian Motion.
Excellent page on Robert Brown;


"The agitation caused by evaporation currents induced by thermodynamic
turbulence are well known to all experienced research workers. Brownian
movement has such unmistakable characteristics. Its kinetic force is
directly related to particle size, and the vector of the force that
gives rise to the movement is not in any way consistent, nor does it
result in motion in a specific direction."
A neat animation showing the collisions (be sure to press the space bar
after twice clicking on the picture);

Explanation of Maxwells' Demon;


"A wall separates two compartments filled with gas. A little "demon"
sits by a tiny trapdoor in the wall. It looks at oncoming gas molecules,
and depending on their speeds it opens or closes the trapdoor. The
object of the game is to eventually collect all the molecules faster
than average on one side, and the slower ones on the other side.

We end up with a hot, high pressure gas on one side, and a cold, low
pressure gas on the other. Conservation of energy is not violated, but
hey presto, we've redistributed the random kinetic energy of the
molecules (heat) in such a way that energy can now be extracted from the
system (it can drive a gas turbine, say)."
Excellent Maxwell's Demon animation;

I highly recommend you read this URL concerning Boltzmanns constant,
entropy and 2nd law of thermodynamics;


"In Boltzmann's day, one complaint about the second law of
thermodynamics was that it seemed to impose upon nature a preferred
direction in time. Under the second law, things can only go one way.
This apparently conflicts with the laws of physics at the molecular
level, where there is no preferred direction in time. An elastic
collision between molecules would look the same going forward or
backward. In the 1880s and 1890s, Boltzmann used molecules of gas as a
model, along with the laws of probability, to show that there was no
real conflict.

The model showed that heat, no matter how it was introduced, would soon
become evenly diffused throughout the gas, as the second law required. =

The model could also be used to show that two different kinds of gasses
would become thoroughly mixed. The reasoning he used for mixing is very
similar to that for the diffusion of heat, but there is an important
difference. In the diffusion of heat, the entropy increase can be
measured with the ratio of physical units, joules per degree.

In the mixing of two kinds of gasses already at the same temperature, if
no heat is exchanged, the ratio of joules per degree =97 thermodynamic
entropy =97 is irrelevant. The mixing process is related to the diffusion=

of heat only by analogy (5). Nevertheless, Boltzmann used a factor, now
called Boltzmann's constant, to attach physical units to the latter
situation. Now the word entropy has come to be applied to the mechanical
mixing process, too. (Of course, Boltzmann's constant has a legitimate
use=97it relates the average kinetic energy of a molecule to its

**** Is Life caused by;
1) shaped particles
2) or particles charged on one end to create polarization??

"Life is organization. From prokaryotic cells, eukaryotic cells,
tissues, and organs, to plants and animals, families, communities,
ecosystems, and living planets, life is organization, at every scale.
The evolution of life is the increase of biological organization, if it
is anything. Clearly, if life originates and evolves by chance, without
organizing input from outside, then something has organized itself.

Logical entropy in a closed system has decreased. This is the violation
that people are getting at, when they mistakenly say that life violates
the second law of thermodynamics. This violation, the decrease of
logical entropy in a closed system, must happen continually in the
neo-Darwinian account of evolution."
Comments about Earl Schlictig;
Light induced mechanical motion;
Surface tension plays a part in flowing solids;

"Our results show that even when the medium consists of nearly spherical
particles, its leading edge may still develop fingers." <snip>

"Our results clearly demonstrate that fingers can form at the front of a
flowing granular medium even in the absence of segregation induced by
coarse, irregularly shaped particles," said Fried, who presented his
team's findings at the American Physical Society meeting, held March
21-26, in Atlanta.

"This suggests that some other mechanism is responsible." Because the
fingering patterns are similar to those seen in conventional viscous
fluids, Fried said, the explanation may lie in an effective surface
tension generated by cohesive forces between grains. "In fluids, the
frontal fingering instability is driven by a competition between
viscosity and surface tension," Fried said.

"Although granular media are commonly thought to be incapable of
sustaining surface tension, we cannot rule out the possibility that the
fingering patterns result from a similar competition between the
viscosity of the bulk medium and effective surface tension."
Antigravity in a sandbox;

"But Shinbrot and his Rutgers colleague Fernando Muzzio found a
different effect, one that involves density rather than size. They put
plastic Easter eggs filled with varying amounts of steel shot on a bed
of fine glass powder and shook vigorously, at a range of frequencies
around 10 Hz. The heavier eggs floated as expected, but the lightest
eggs sunk to the bottom. According to Shinbrot, anyone can observe the
effect by filling a jar half-way with salt, placing a steel nut and a
screw bottle-cap (or other high- and low-density objects) inside, and
shaking vigorously."

"Shinbrot and Muzzio propose that the larger inertia of a heavier object
allows it to lift smoothly in the air with each shake, so that the
surrounding powder can easily slide underneath it and gradually raise it
up. A lighter object is more easily jostled by nearby particles,
allowing less opportunity for them to seep underneath it."
Peter Manners Crab Nebula Experiment;

Peter said a vibrating panel was covered with sand, a film camera (he
said specifically film, NOT video) was mounted above the panel and the
Crab Nebula acoustic signal was played into the vibrating plate.
He said the sand formed a pattern strikingly like the Crab Nebula...as
the sound played, the nebula pattern tightened up, the two swirling arms
pulled in and the sand formed into a tight ball....near the end of the
audiotape, the sand was compacted at its closest and it suddenly
exploded, spewing sand off the table.

Though Ren was talking about transmutation and precipitation of
elements, he had written;
"Many moons ago I looked at hydrogen and as it's form is a perfect
tetrahydron it obviously consists of 4 particles with their own force
field locked into this form with a perfect vacuum as it's centre.(ZPE)
As all matter is the result of interlocking out of balance lines of
magnetic force, matter looks solid but in fact is nothing."

Could an IONIZED on one end - tetrahedral or pyramid shape be analogous
to an ellipse or egg shape where one end is larger than another as
Schlictig says? Just looking for correlations in the files and this stuck
out as a remote possibility.

It is my opinion that we will one day learn to entrain chaotic motion
to be able to extract useful work from it.

That would include the complex frequencies which bombard the earth
as well as the aether/zpe background energy of spin which appears chaotic.

Entrain, collimate, accumulate and use. Again it ties in with Dr. Ivanovs'
phase conjugation to produce controlled field intereferences for
motion in a specific pattern or direction.
Random walks and normal diffusion;
and I think that's quite enough to get the idea across..<g>...seeya!
