The Parallel Between Free Energy and Spirituality

From having studied Tom Bearden’s material, I’m becoming aware of a parallel between matters dealing with free energy and those dealing with spirituality.

Classical electromagnetics (EM) scholars don’t recognize the vacuum as being full; they consider it empty. They derive energy from sources such as hydrocarbons, coal, and nuclear materials.

If we keep our attention on these sources of energy and ignore the vacuum, we’re condemned to using low-energy systems and producing much pollution.

Since classical EM scholars don’t recognize the potential of the vacuum, they don’t recognize EM systems that draw on the vacuum. Hence free-energy is regarded as preposterous.

Free-energy scholars derive their energy from the vacuum, which they recognize as being infinitely full. They produce energy in high volume, with no pollution.

In a free-energy system, Tom Bearden says, “we … have unending flows of energy going, with the energy extracted directly from the seething vacuum…. That energy will flow perpetually, and we don’t have to put another watt of power in to get it to continue.” (1)

“Forget the conventional myth of visualizing the potential as pushing a unit charge in from infinity ‘against the force field’ — there isn’t any force field in the vacuum, as is well-known in quantum mechanics.” (2)

If we ignore the vacuum and only tap existing energy sources, we produce little energy and much pollution. If we ignore existing energy sources and tap the vacuum, we produce infinite energy with no pollution.

Now to spirituality.

What David Icke calls the Five Senses School, or materialists, do not recognize the Void as being a source of bliss. They seek their bliss from the senses and their objects. They may look for it in food, alcohol, drugs, and sex. They may find it in experience and adventure. In all these pursuits, the senses are turned outwards.

Spiritual seekers find their bliss not in external objects, but inside, from the vacuum, the Void, or God. They postpone their gratification, seeking something greater and higher.

Ammachi says that “the happiness that we get from worldly objects is only an infinitesimal fraction of the bliss that we get from within.” (3)

Because the bliss from external objects is so small, comparatively speaking, Ramana Maharshi can generalize that “there is no bliss in objects. The Self alone is bliss.” (4)

Therefore, if we turn our attention to objects and neglect the Void, considering it to be empty, or, as one sage called it, “weak meat soup,” we’re condemned to enjoy little bliss. But if we turn our attention to the Void and neglect objects, postponing immediate gratification, we stand eventually to experience an infinite amount of bliss.
