Nick Nelson's Amazing
Vortex & Magnet Discoveries - 08/05/01
Last update (bottom of page): June 6, 2003

The discoveries described in 'The Golden Vortex' are based on extensive research and direct observation of the Oregon Vortex and other 'mystery spots' where unexplained anomalies occur. The author has found a direct correlation between the Vortex phenomena and magnetic fields which I think will change science in a fundamental way as the details spread into the alternative science networks, are tested, proven and yes, even expanded upon, then slowly seep into academia and the corporate world.

It is to Nicks great credit that he has chosen to share his findings rather than try to capitalize or hide them in the quest for money and fame. And to publisher Lawrence Johns for taking a chance and publishing 'The Golden Vortex'. It will lead to great things for everyone working with magnets.

The first part of the book goes into great detail and provides extensive information showing links and understandings about ley lines, other vortexes and how they connect as well as how this all ties into areas such as the Bermuda Triangle, the Giza Plateau and other ancient sites. Fascinating as the vortex information is, it pales in comparison, in my opinion, to giving us a better understanding about how to make a self-sustaining magnetic rotary force to achieve practical and universal free energy.

This is an introductory file extracted from 'The Golden Vortex' and written up as a POP (proof of principle) document and is intended to provide sufficient information to allow you to prove three of the basic principles discussed along with many others, in detail in his book, available at the KeelyNet Products page for $18.95 plus shipping.

Nelson's New Magnet Discovery

First, we need to clarify how to sense the motion of the magnet which Nick describes on;

p. 232 - The most important thing I had to learn when I first started to play with magnets was to hold them loosely enough so the direction of their movement was conveyed to my hand, but tightly enough not to lose control of them. Most of the magnets I use are ceramic, and therefore are quite brittle. I have a large stack of broken ceramic magnets, because they 'got away' from me and hit the floor, or violently slammed into another magnet.

p. 210 - One day an article in 'Science & Mechanics' magazine made me sit up straight in the chair. A magnetic, and electronics engineer by the name of Howard Johnson, after a grueling fight with the Patent Office, had been granted Patent 4,151,431 for a magnet motor. It had only one moving part!

...For this knowledge, I have to also begrudgingly thank a foot of snow, a malicious ladder, and pain I wouldn't wish on an enemy.

The first thing I needed to know is: What is a magnet?

...The definition of a magnet can be boiled down to two words: Electron and Spin.

In the company of most atoms, electrons are said to be 'paired', which means that electrons in a pair have spins that are opposite in direction to the other, thus cancelling out each other's magnetic field.

Howard Johnson claimed his patented motor worked because he had harnessed unpaired electron spins. Even if I'd caught this evasive language, it wouldn't have told me how he mechanically utilized those magnets, or unpaired electron spins.

The Simplistic answer to what is a magnet, is that a lot of little bitty magnets gang up together and get trapped in certain kinds of materials. This gang of tiny magnets then attracts or repels other gangs of little magnets trapped in other kinds of materials. The reason the sky is blue, Johnny, is because it is blue. Little magnets make a big magnet.

...If an electron with a counterclockwise spin encounters an electron with another counterclockwise spin THEY REPEL.

...If the encounter is between a counterclockwise spin and a clockwise spin ATTRACTION is the result. I blew right by a wonderful shortcut by continuing to think in the same vein most everyone else has been working with for more than a century. Polarity.

...Instead of attributing spin to only the electron, and since a magnet is a bunch of trapped electrons, I should have simply carried the spin concept up to the same reality as the physical magnet.

Forget Polarity, think SPIN.

But even this wouldn't have answered the next question, what IS the 'little' magnet?

Electrons don't spin like normal stuff spins. Normal stuff - wheels, planets, balls on the way to becoming strikeouts, etc. spin 360 degrees of arc to get back to their starting positions. But physics tells us that the electron has a spin rate of ONE-HALF, and that means it must somehow spin twice the distance, or 720 degrees of arc to get back where it started.

...After much thought and experimenting, the senseless did begin to make a little sense. If the electron, after what we consider a FULL circle (360 degrees), flipped 180 degrees and spent the other half of its spin in HYPERSPACE, that would account for 720 degrees, and when it emerged in our space it would be right back where it started. We can even put together a three-dimensional entity to use as a model for this idea. It's called a Mobius strip.

To make this model all that is needed is paper, scissors and tape. Legal size paper, 8.5 X 14 is best, but 8.5 X 11 will do. A strip is cut at least one inch wide along the length of the paper and then each end of the strip is marked with the number 1. On the other side a 2 is labeled on each end.

Next, the strip is twisted a half turn and the two ends pulled together so that a number 1 meets a number 2.

Lastly, the ends are taped together to make a loop with a twist. If the strip is pulled between a thumb and a finger, all the 1's, and all the 2's will pass under a finger without lifting it off the paper.

This can be thought of as a model of the complete spin of one electron. The electron traverses the number 1 side of the paper for one spin, and then travels along the number 2 side of the strip, at which point it starts over again. Two revolutions are necessary to get the circle all the way around under the finger.

The patent contains descriptions of two types of motors; a linear motor with a beginning and an end, and an endless circular version. Eventually I learned how to make the linear motor function, but when the two ends of the track are pulled together into a circle the motor effect is cancelled.

I came to understand that successfully completing the circle requires knowledge of the field structure in and around a single magnet. A minimum of two real-world magnets that exhibit unpaired spins must be made to emulate two quantum electrons.

If I couldn't solve Johnson's patent, maybe I culd improve on the shielding motors? Months of staring at a solution I couldn't see passed, while I tried all kinds of different things as switching devices. I noticed that steel ball bearings seemed to have promise as shields, but the ones I had were a bit large.

Then one day I found a package of BBs in my toolbox and decidced to give them a try. The little spheres seemed to do as well as ball bearings, and it didn't matter how big the magnet. Despite their small size, they collapsed the magnetic field on any magnet on which I tried them, and they rolled easily, which meant that very little power would have to be diverted back into the motor.

I considered what sort of design might best take advantage of the BBs, and it was through this exercise that I thought of arranging them on a ring of small disk magnets to utilize a mechanical tripping device.

I already knew that a ring of three or more magnets, all with the same poles up, constituted the same pole field as a solid magnet. On my workbench was a large plate of soft steel littered with magnets held in various configurations, and there was a six-disk ring of one-inch magnets all ready to go.

Using the guess-and-by-golly as an experimental technique, I placed one BB between every other magnet, and then held another magnet as an armature at ninety degrees above one part of the ring.

The magnet began pulling my hand around the circle! My excitement grew with each turn of the armature magnet around the ring.

The problem was as I was holding the armature magnet, the ring ended up clear across the room. When I returned and placed the armature back in the field of the ring, NOTHING HAPPENED!

Each time I lifted it out of the field and replaced it, nothing happened!

In a few minutes I discovered that the BBs had segmented the ring into three different 'aspects'. When I held the armature magnet over one part of the field between the BBs, the magnet moved in my fingers differently than it did over another part. After a little tinkering, one of those sections caused the armature magnet to drag my hand around the circle.

I was to learn that the ring of individual magnets, when segmented by the steel BBs, is actually the normal state of any sold magnet. Evidently this 'normal state' wasn't something others had ever seen. I was able to 'see' it because the BBs visually outlined a fundamental geometric truth that is not otherwise evident.

Others hadn't seen that magnets have hidden aspects, because no one had ever looked for something that had no reason to occur to them.

It takes very little to alter the 'character' of a magnetic field, but it takes a lot to understand that such a thing as 'character' exists inside a magnetic field.

I use the word 'character' to describe the BB separated segments which do not change in terms of their positions within the field, but the 'aspects' or nature of that which happens inside each segment can easily be rotated from one segment to the other.

The size of the segments can be changed to make any one of them dominant throughout the entire field, but to do this the BBs have to change positions. In a solid magnet it is done in other ways. This altering of positions is like changing from letter to letter, as I am doing by typing symbols into coherent forms. There is no language inside magnets complete with syntax, but it seems they are trying to tell us something.

A magnet of any size or shape is a physical substance that has captured a vortex. The shape of this vortex is no different than the Bermuda Triangle Vortex, or the Oregon Vortex. They are segmented in the same way, and all of them manifest a one-sixth diameter corona.

So that I might coherently talk about them, the three separate segments of a magnetic field needed to be identified with names. Right after my discovery, I called them simply, A section, B section and C section. I have since renamed them 'aspects', which more accurately describes what each one does, but I have retained the A,B,C labeling.

Sections, however, or segments describe the very real physical boundaries, which could also be thought of as 'lines of demarcation'.

These demarcation lines radiate straight out from the center of a magnet (from the face of the North pole), cutting the field into 'pizza slices' rather than the circular demarcation lines at the Oregon Vortex.

The A aspect allows the 90 degree magnet, or armature to move in whatever direction it is facing without stopping inside the segment, or veering away from it.

The B aspect causes the armature to twist in only one direction around its own upright axis. This is in the nature of the vortex swirl. The armature cannot move forward inside the B segment, and because it is a physical object cannot continue more than one turn into, or out from the vortex.

The C aspect is a combination of A and B. On the outside crust of the 'pizza slice', the armature will twist the opposite direction as it will when positioned toward the point of the 'pizza slice'. This occurs even though the armature faces the same direction in both instances. Exactly between these two outside and inside positions, the armature, in a limited sense, will want to move in the direction of the curve of the field, or curve of the magnet. In this position the armature will not twist from the C segment, but behaves in the same critical manner as it does in the A aspect section.

It is in the unhindered A aspect that the concept of the magnet motor is found.

The B aspect interferes with the idea of a magnet motor and prevents it from occurring.

The C aspect contains both the possibility of a magnet motor, and its prevention.

Howard Johnson's magnet motor had to fit EXACTLY within the geometric confines of A and C, while dealing ingeniously with the down-the-drain vortex aspects of B.

B is the infinite in these descriptions, and if it can't at least be set to one side, the magnet motor won't go. My reaction to this was that the electron doesn't let infinity bother it, so why should I?

The North pole of a magnet is segmented in THREE aspects, but those three aspects are only evident when another magnet is thrust into the field at 90 degrees. The aspects begin to show themselves at this point, but they also show their own changeable nature depending on which direction the poles of this 90 degree, or armature magnet, are allowed to face in relation to the field into which it is placed.

In the North pole three PRECISE 120 degree segments can be located, but ONLY if the North pole of the armature magnet is faced counterclockwise along the disk rim, or outer edge of the field. Hang on for clockwise...

The South pole of a magnetic field is also segmented into THREE aspects: A, B and C still apply, but along the counterclockwise direction of the armature they share FOUR detailed in the book....

Additional update from June 6, 2003;

Thought people might be interested in what I consider a minor breakthrough in concocting a linear field that may mimic Howard Johnson's toy race car effect. It's based on my original discovery of the three basic spin domains in a single magnet.

For far too long I've thought that all three domains, that I've labeled, A, B, and C must be present in an overt sense to make the thing work, but recently I tripped and fell into what should have been obvious; that A and B as I've defined them in Golden Vortex are the only domains that need be overtly, or three-dimensionally used.

Follow the diagrams below and the "armature" when it moves into the track field does so because of the straight A domain. It then hits the longer B domain and is converted into C. At the end it is reconverted to A and is kicked out of the field.

It enters and leaves the field not because of a magical polarity change, but because of a spin switch, CCW to CW.

In illustration 1, I show a top and side view of a single magnet of any diameter (call it one inch across and one-quarter inch thick). Mark the diameter into equal sections of one-sixth. What is important here is the 0ne-sixth measurement (blue) AND the one-half measurement (red).

Illustration 2 are top and bottom views of six single magnets laid out in a row on an iron or steel plate. The blue space between the first two magnets from left to right represents a 1/6th space, and next three red spaces are 1/2, or the radius of any single magnet apart. The last blue space is again 1/6th.

A single "armature" magnet placed at 90 degrees to the row will, at a certain height, be pulled into the track along the 1/2-spaced center magnets, and then be expelled out the other end. It should be noted that the 1/2 spaced magnets may be as many as you please, 3 or 3000.

In the case shown North travels toward North. To do a simple test as depicted, tape a disk armature magnet to the bottom of a nonferrous stick that is at least six inches long in order to avoid your hand coming within 4.5 inches of the track (I've also recently learned that 4.5 inches is the usual distance in which the human stays in the circuit ... but another story).

Hold the stick at the end opposite from the magnet and test for the right height by pushing the stick and magnet gently against the field while raising it. At a point about the radius of the armature magnet it ought to invade the track field as if being pulled, and then "drag" your hand with it.

Remember, you are stronger than the magnets, so ... go with whatever the magnets "want" to do. Try a toy car?

I'm working on bending the track in a circle and adding armature magnets. A few more tests...

Still in the game, Nick Nelson

In truth, I've been extremely excited about this for the past 2-3 months as seen on the discussion list posts, Nick's discoveries appear to be pointing the way to a completely new understanding of magnetic fields which apply to all sorts of areas, but most especially, giving us new perspectives on the many claims of 'self-running' magnetic motors such as Howard Johnson, Kohei Minato and others as posted on the Magnetic Anomalies page at KeelyNet.

This page should provide sufficient introductory information that you can determine and test the 3 magnetic aspects for yourself. It should also clue you in to some hints as to the new insights and discoveries Nick has made with regard to the mysteries of vortexes and how magnets work for motor power as well as with the body for healing.

Nick has been extremely informative as witnessed in the following email exchanges with me which I forwarded to the KeelyNet Interact discussion list for all to study. He also says he has discovered the technique to create an 'artificial vortex' which has the same attributes and exhibits the same phenomena, yes, even twisted plants, as found at sites such as the Oregon Vortex, the Mystery Spot in Santa Cruz, CA and other locations.
