Around that same time, there appeared another article in a magazine called Probe The Unknown authored by Jack Scagnetti called "The Engine That Runs Itself." (Figure 5) He presented very similar information as that contained in the articles by Tom Valentine. Gray describes the operation of his EMA motor as similar to recreating lightning:

Richard Hackenberger, Vice President in Engineering for EVGray, explains how the EMA motor system operates. "Power from the high voltage section is put through a system of electrical circuitry to produce a

These several newspaper articles totally captivated my imagination. Shortly afterwards, my brother and I wrote to EVGray Enterprises in Van Nuys, California expressing our interest and desire to have more information. I received the following letter from them in October, 1973: "Dear Mr. Lindemann: I would like to thank you for showing such interest in EVGray Enterprises, Inc. and for taking the time to write us. I have also sent your brother a letter. But due to our security, we are unable to give out any information about the motor or the Company." (Figure 6) Needless to say, this was extremely disappointing. So, reluctantly, I put the Valentine and Scagnetti articles and the

Unfortunately, I didn't read any more about Ed Gray for the next couple of years. In 1977, however, I came across another article by Tom Valentine in an issue of a magazine called NewsReal (Figure 7) devoted to suppressed inventions. Valentine wrote about a wide variety of subjects ranging from making oil from coal, to making gasoline from water, to airplanes that won't stall, and other amazing inventions. Included was an update on Edwin Gray entitled, "EMS - Electronic Power That Could Change The World's Economic Power Picture." (Figure 8)

In this article, Ed Gray says:

I remember getting a shock when I grabbed a charged capacitor off a workbench. That simple fact never left my mind. Then I watched when the government people were testing the first radar across the Potomac River. It stuck in my mind when one of the men explained it as pulse out, pulse back'. And I've always been a nut about thunderstorms. I watched lightning by the hours. I noticed how much stronger it appeared to be when closer to the earth, and just naturally concluded that the more air had something to do with it. These three principles, plus a super secret means of generating and mixing static electricity, make up Gray's EMS motor.'

Later in the article:

There is no motor like this in the world' Dr. Chalfin told the group. Ordinary electric motors use continuous current and constantly drain power. In this system, energy is used only during a small fraction of a millisecond. Energy not used is returned to an accessory battery for reuse.' It is cool running,' Dr. Chalfin added, putting his hand on the motor. There is no loss of energy in the system.'

Gray's first patent, issued in June of 1975, was titled "Pulsed Capacitor Discharge Electric Engine." (Figure 9) I

Gray's Motor Patent Schematic received a copy of it in 1978. It is a rather extensive patent with 18 pages, 19 illustrations, and 18 claims. It describes an engine that is run by discharging capacitors through electromagnets that oppose each other. (Figure 10)

But I discovered soon enough that if you try to build this motor according to the principles outlined in this patent, it doesn't perform anything like what was described in the Valentine articles. In fact, it doesn't produce a cold form of electricity at all. If you happened to get into the discharge path of those capacitors, you'd be thrown clear across the room. What's more, the amount of energy that could be recycled from this arrangement is negligible compared to what Gray is talking about in those articles. It became quite obvious to me, that in spite of the fact that this patent protected the specific design of the motor, it did not reveal the technique of its operation.

From the beginning, I was always more interested in the solid-state circuit. I realized that the production of cold electricity really had nothing to do with the motor and that the motor was a secondary event. After all, when Gray was popping the magnets with cold electricity and running the TV and the light bulbs on cold electricity, he didn't need the motor. Intuitively, I knew from the outset that the key to unraveling the secret of Gray's discovery lay in an attempt to completely understand his solid-state circuit. However, the resources I had gathered thus far were inadequate at best, and by the late 70's, I had pretty much exhausted all the information that was available on this subject.

During the late 1980's, I only heard rumors that Gray was continuing his work, but all I could really determine was that no more news articles, or anything else for that matter, ever appeared about him.

In the mid-1990's, however, a research associate of mine told me that he had heard that Gray had been issued other patents and this completely intrigued me. Would these new patents contain the answers I was looking for? I didn't know for sure, but I knew I needed to get hold of these documents. Unfortunately, my associate didn't have them, and he didn't know what the patent numbers were. So once again, my search for Ed Gray's "cold electricity" came to a dead end, at least for a few more years.

In June of 1999, while visiting the IBM Intellectual Property Network on the internet (now the Delphion Intellectual Property Network), I noticed that the search engines within the patent database had been recently updated so it was now possible to restrict a search just to the Inventor Line. "Gray" into a search and looked at every word in every patent from 1971 forward, you got so many hits you couldn't possibly go through them all. Now, however, I was able to plug "Gray; Edwin" into the Inventor Line of this newly updated search engine. Lo and behold, on my screen 30 seconds later, the numbers of two other patents that had been issued to Edwin Gray came up. I was ecstatic!

Figure 11 shows the first of these patents entitled "Efficient Power Supply Suitable for Inductive Loads" issued in June 1986. Understanding this patent will be the primary focus of this book.

The other patent entitled "Efficient Electrical Conversion Switching Tube Suitable for Inductive Loads" (Figure 12) was issued approximately ten months later, in April 1987.

These two patents are very closely linked and are almost identical. One of them describes the circuit that drives this switching tube and the other one describes the switching tube itself. About 80% of

the wording in both of these patents is identical.

Figure 13 shows the circuit diagram for the first one. I had searched 26 years for this diagram, and finally I had a chance to understand what Gray was doing. I felt sure that I was looking at the basis of his "cold" electricity circuits, but Gray was still holding his cards quite close to his chest. Reading the diagram, it was not clear how these components behaved, or what they did, or why. The more I studied the text, which is relatively short compared to the motor patent, the more I realized I was looking at something that was really quite foreign to me. Intuitively, I felt I had all the pieces, but I still didn't know how the pieces fit together, and I didn't know what the true picture looked like. Why was this circuit able to create free energy? Once again, there were still far too many unknowns.

I was heartened, though, by several interesting references stated in the patent. For instance, in one small section, Gray states:

There is disclosed herein an electrical driving system which, on theory, will convert low-voltage electrical energy from a source, such as an electric storage battery, to a high-potential, high-current energy pulse that is capable of developing a work force at the inductive output of the device that is more efficient than that which is capable of being developed directly from the energy source.

That statement may sound a bit obscure, but actually as far as I was concerned, it was a pretty sneaky way of saying "free energy." Further on it says:

This system accomplishes the results stated above by harnessing the 'electrostatic' or "impulse' energy created by a high intensity spark generated within a specially constructed electrical conversion switching element tube. This element utilizes a low voltage anode, a high voltage anode, and one or more electro-static or charge receiving grids. These grids are of a physical size, and appropriately positioned, as to be compatible with the size of the tube, and therefore, directly related to the amount of energy to be anticipated when the device is operating

As I continued to read this patent, I was most intrigued by components # 42, # 44, and # 46. The patent states:

A spark-gap protection device, 42, is included in the circuit to protect the inductive load and the rectifier elements from unduly large discharge currents. Should the potentials within the circuit exceed predetermined values, fixed by the mechanical size and spacing of the elements within the protected device, the excess energy is dissipated (bypassed) by the protective device to the circuit common (electrical ground)..." diodes 44 and 46 bypass the excess overshoot generated when the energy conversion switching element tube is triggered.

So here we have three elements, # 42, # 44 and # 46 in this circuit, which are specifically designed to dump excess energy when this tube fires! What this suggests is that there is the possibility of producing so much energy here that it can damage the rest of the circuit. Certainly this was quite promising, but I still didn't really understand what phenomenon would create those conditions -- or why. It was definitely apparent to me, however, that Gray expected something extremely "large" to happen when this conversion switching tube fired.

I was convinced I had discovered the secret of the device, but I still didn't really understand what I was looking at. I needed a "Rosetta Stone" -- something that would translate all of these unknowns into an understandable context.

Luckily, I found it. That Rosetta Stone was a book called Secrets 6f Cold War Technology: Project HAARP and Beyond, written by Gerry Vassilatos in 1996 and currently available through Adventures Unlimited Press (Figure 14). In Chapter 1, titled "Nikola Tesla and Radiant Energy," Vassilatos recounts those heady days back around 1890, when Nikola Tesla is developing the experiments which led to the invention of his magnifying transmitter. It is an astonishing work, and I highly recommend that you acquire and read the entire publication. However, for the purposes of this book, the following excerpted sections from Chapter I will reveal not only a fascinating story of discovery, but, more importantly, will provide the foundation for full comprehension of Tesla's amazing magnifying transmitter and, subsequently, its connection to Edwin Gray's "cold electricity" circuit.
