A Theoretical Breakthrough

Many people today do not believe in the concept of free energy because they think that it violates the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This law states that the energy available from a closed system is always less than the energy put into that system. I believe I can present a viewpoint of free energy that is consistent with the Second Law.

Normally energy is thought of as being produced by transforming it from one state to another. Since there is always some loss of energy in this process, it is consistent with the Second Law. Consider this concept: a latent pool of potential or virtual energy coexistent with the continuum itself. If we now use a certain amount of energy to create a system which allows this latent pool to flow in a useable form, we have free energy if there is more flow than input. This still does not violate the Second Law. The flow output is still less than the sum of the flow input plus the energy necessary to sustain the system. However, for all practical considerations, after initial startup, we are obtaining a net energy equal to the flow minus the sustaining energy. This is free energy.

I believe this is an important conceptual breakthrough. Free energy has long labored under the misconception that it violates the Second Law of Thermodynamics. I have shown that this is not necessarily so. One of the major arguments against free energy has been countered. Also, a generalized direction for research has been discovered which is consistent with the Second Law. Free energy may not be just around the corner, but it may only be a few blocks away.
