Ed Leedskalnin's Perpetual Motion Holder

                                                                                                                        January 2011


     This month's alternative energy newsletter is about Edward Leedskalnin of Coral Castle. In particular... his PMH or Perpetual Motion Holder and also how magnetic currents run in a wire. I know I have covered this in a previous newsletter on Ed Leedskalnin, but I found some videos on Youtube that show it in real life. It's a whole lot easier to understand something if you actually see it as opposed to reading it somewhere. I was even pretty impressed at how obvious and clear it became to me...

This is from Ed Leedskalnin's Magnetic Currents book...

"Bend iron or soft steel bar one and one half inch in diameter, bend in a U shape each prong a foot long, and three inches between the prongs, make two spools from brass or aluminum six inches long and big enough for the bar to go in.

Wind fifteen hundred turns of insulated copper wire, size sixteen, on each spool. On as close to the bend as it will go. Connect the battery with the coils so that each current is running in both coils at the same time, and so that one end of the bar is North Pole and the other South Pole, you now an electric magnet."


"Put the six-inch long square rod on top of the two iron prongs, fit good so it lies even. Connect the battery with electric magnet for a little while, now disconnect the battery, connect the light bulb with the electric magnet the same way it was connected with the battery, now pull off the six-inch long bar, do it quickly, then you will see light in the bulb, connect the battery up again with the electric magnet, put the bar across the iron prongs, hold awhile, disconnect the battery.
Now the electric magnet holds perpetual motion.

If not disturbed it will last indefinitely. I held it in this position for six months, and when I pulled off the six-inch bar I got just as much light out of it as I got in the first time. This experiment shows that if you start the North and South Pole individual magnets in an orbit, then they will never stop."

As you can see, Ed wasn't the best writer in the world. Actually he was an immigrant from Latvia and his English was choppy at best.

First, I'd like you to watch this video showing how magnetic currents run in a wire in a spiral motion north pole magnets running against south pole magnets. This is DC current being applied to a straight wire with polarized magnets hanging above the wire. The DC current is reversed periodically...


Now... I'd like you to watch this video demonstrating Ed Leedskalnin's PMH...


Both of these videos clearly demonstrate the concept of magnet currents or "magnetricity" as some people call it.

     Speaking of Ed Leedskalnin... my theory explaining the whole Coral Castle phenomenon in my previous newsletter still stands. While researching this newsletter, I ran across a well done series of videos which claimed to have "broken the code" and revealed the "secret" to how Ed Leedskalnin built the Coral Castle. You know... it's funny how people totally ignore the obvious. There are actually pictures of Ed LeedskalEd Leedskalnin's tripodnin with huge tripods and big block & tackle hoists moving the stones...

The more loops through the block and tackle, the easier it is to hoist...

     But... shady people come out of the woodwork and take advantage of people. A wise man once said, "A fool and his money are soon parted" . There are 100's of scams running around the internet these days... hydro boost, free energy devices, ebooks claiming you can run your home on these devices, etc. Even the solar ebooks out there are mostly scams as they claim the solar panels can be made at home for free. The chances of that happening are somewhere between slim and none. Look down your street... how many solar panels do you see? None? There's a reason for that - they are very, very expensive and put out very little power.

However people buy these free energy scams left and right. The videos I was talking about that claimed to have "broken the code" was about these numbers carved on a rock by Ed Leedskalnin at the Coral Castle...

     Mysterious - right? The auCoral Castle Starthor of the videos went to great lengths to calculate what the numbers meant... he talked about prime numbers, quadruples, square roots, pyramid dimensions and angles, and the Star found in several places at Coral Castle. He even tiEd Leedskalnin immigration papersed it all into the Freemason building in Philadelphia. It all sounded really legitimate and true. It's amazing, really, how he was able to contrive his results. Well... it turns out the numbers are not so mysterious after all. They simply came right off his immigration papers...

Ed Leedskalnin was just a simple man who knew some secrets about building with stone. He also loved electricity and magnetics. There's nothing mysterious about that. His devices are all simple things that he built using parts from the scrap yard. There's no anti-gravity or levitation involved at all. Of course, it probably didn't hurt his gate sales much to "let people think" there was some mystery to the Coral Castle. Not a bad sales tactic if you ask me!

Please people... stop buying all those free energy, solar energy, and internet marketing scams being sold online these days. Use your mind to distinguish between the scams and the real, useful products.
