Excerpts from Letter No to Josef Brunnader

Written in Linz, 25 /12 /1955

Many thanks for the two letters I found upon my return from the turbine works where my suction-turbine, which has already reached an advanced stage, is being built. Without these practical results, every attempt to return humanity to Nature would be a wasted effort.

The booklet 'Implosion instead of Explosion'1 prompted the director of a major European turbine-works to ask me whether I would be prepared to receive his scientific adviser and to explain the essential nature of the naturalesque build-up of potential to him, which viewed biologically is the build-up of quality-matter. Shortly thereafter I was sent a book entitled Fundamental Principles of Potentisation Research. From this it was apparent that despite very expensive experiments in this complex matter, no-one had yet been able to arrive at a solution and even the information provided by the anthro-posophist L. Kolisko, based on Rudolf Steiner's instructions, was to no avail,

Apart from me, no one has yet succeeded in the resistance-free acceleration of medial masses by means of a falling thermal gradient. In the turbine-works, where my suction-turbine is being built, it was admitted that the effects of all contemporary pressure-turbine systems, which trigger a rise in the temperature of the through-flow material, become all the more dangerous, the more the supposed efficiency or output is increased.

With this it can be seen what is here involved, i.e. as follows: In order to heal up 1 litre (0.264 gal) or 1 kilogram (2.2 lbs) of water by 1°C (1.8°F) from +14°C to +15°C (+57.2°F - +59.0°F), 1 kilo-calorie = 5.4 horsepower is necessary. If for example, 1 m3 (35.3 ft3) of steam = 1 kg (2.2 lbs), is cooled from about +90°C to +4°C (+194°F - 39.2°F) by moving it in a planetary system of curves, then 86 kcal/sec are freed, which provide additional power in the order of 466.4 hp / sec, discounting minor frictional losses.

With a diameter of 300 mm (1.0 ft) and at 1,000 rpm, a peripheral velocity of 50 m/sec (164 ft/sec) and hence a 50 m/sec exit velocity is produced in my suction-turbine, which corresponds to a geological head of pressure of 500 metres (1,640 ft).

At 1 litre (0.264 gal) of water/sec, QxH/100 = 5.4 hp/ sec per nozzle and second, where Q = quantity of heat and H = mechanical equivalent of heat. With 10 nozzles = 10 litres /sec (2.64 gal/sec), 54 hp / sec are produced, if these 10 litres (2.64 gal) of water are merely cooled by l°C/sec (1.8°F/sec), for which only about 0.25 hp are required to provide the required impulse. In this suction-turbine any desired quantity of water can be cooled in a matter of seconds by

at least 10°C (18°F), say from +15°C (+59°F) down to +4°C (+39.2°F). In this way on average a drop in temperature is produced in the same order of magnitude as the rise in temperature in an ordinary vacuum cleaner, which is driven by archimedean pressure-propellers.

Using a radius of 50 cm (20 in) and a circumference of about 315 cm (126 in) for calculation, then already at 1,000 rpm an effective force is produced equivalent to that required to drive a modern express train. To accelerate it to 80 kph (50 mph), for which about 6,000 hp are required today, I only need about 3 hp/sec as an impulsive force. In my water or air suction-turbine neither air-resistance (sound barrier), nor a thermal barrier exists, because the forelying air-masses are sucked in at the speed of lightning and re-converted into water. The effective power therefore rises quite astronomically, if for example about 30,000 litres (1,059.44 ft3) of fore-lying air are screwed inwards in seconds and re-converted into about 30 litres (7.92 gal) of water. For all this about 3 hp are necessary.

By examining the relevant tables showing the reduction in volume that occurs with the conversion of air into water, one can get an idea of the magnitude of the negative pressure that evolves when about 30,000 litres (30 m3 - 1,059.44 ft3) of air are re-converted into a homogenous water precipitate within seconds. If the reverse calculation is made, then it can be seen what force is needed to transform 30 litres (7.92 gal.) of water into a gaseous, aeriform state within seconds. In this regard, if the additional air-resistance encountered by a train at 80 kph (50 mph) is taken into account, then it can be seen how stupidly we deceive ourselves and uselessly squander a vast number of kilocalories to produce the requisite steam pressure to drive such a train at 80 kph (50 mph). With my system, however, only about 3-6 hp would be needed to transform air into water.

About a third of the 27 patents I have been applied for have been granted. The other countries have been assessing them for about 4 years, and will have to capitulate once I demonstrate the improved suction-turbine to them, for owing to their techno-academic education they simply cannot understand the differences. And the same also applies to you, since you too learnt precisely the opposite at school. You must therefore also be patient until you have seen how media of all kinds can be accelerated naturalesquely without resistance, wherein the resistance to motion produced by all technical machines is converted into additional power.

It would therefore serve no purpose were you to act against established science prematurely, because science will become ridiculous once the exact opposite has been proven. I therefore suggest that you continue to be patient for the short time that I require in order to place a fully functional suction-turbine on the lecture table at the next series of lectures to trained bio-ecotechnologists.

At the moment I also have no time for any more detailed theoretical explanations, because work on the turbine, which is proceeding apace, demands my full attention. Very soon the moment awaited with much excitement will come, when turbine manufacturers will have been initiated to the point where they will reproach themselves for having made such a stupid mistake, namely for having produced a rising temperature-gradient in lieu of a falling one, and therefore recognise the self-deception that lies rooted in today's flawed teaching methods.

Please understand that it is for these reasons that I must decline any further theoretical explanations. I wish you a good New Year, which will bring the turning point that everyone has so anxiously awaited, because things simply cannot continue the way they have thus far. As a result there will no longer be any need to fight against those who so far believed they could build up a healthy economy or even a culture with the use of fire. Such a turning point I experienced during the days at the above turbine-works, when the director capitulated completely once he understood the difference between falling and rising temperature-gradients.

The solar Stirling engine is progressively becoming a viable alternative to solar panels for its higher efficiency. Stirling engines might be the best way to harvest the power provided by the sun. This is an easy-to-understand explanation of how Stirling engines work, the different types, and why they are more efficient than steam engines.
