1987 pages 116-117.
(QUOTE)Here is the story he(Whitley's boyhood friend) recounted.
When we were 13, I apparently announced to him that 'spacemen' had
taught me how to build an antigravity machine, which I was
constructing in my bedroom. This was in the summer of 1958.
I do not remember the genesis of this machine, but I certainly
remember building it. There was no magic to the thing; it was
only an assembly of electromagnets taken from old motors. The
supposed antigravity effect was based on a principle of
counterrotation.(UNQUOTE). The machine destoyed itself on the
initial test run.
(QUOTE)I (Whitley) have subsequently discovered that there is a
whole mythology of flying saucer technology, and a lot of it
revolves around the concept of counter-rotating magnets.(UNQUOTE)
...another man, who was given detailed instructions about how
to build a motor of this sort...remembered the design in 1985...
He built this design (contra-rotating electromagnets) and was able
to start his testing. During the initial test, all the metal
objects in his barn were instantly pulled toward the machine, and
he was knocked out by a flying auto engine!
Coral Castle in Florida
- Edward Leedskalnin -
A frail man, weighing not more than 100 pounds, quarried a piece
of coral from the earth weighing over 28 tons.
He then transported it and raised it, all alone, without the aid
of machinery or modern tools.
Edward Leedskalnin of South Florida did just that and much more.
He cut, quarried, and raised a castle consisting of over 1000 tons
of coral rock and 100 tons of carvings. His creation of Rock Gate,
later to be called Coral Castle, ranks with the
wonders of our world... with the mysteries in stone on Easter
Island and Stonehenge in England. To present day, no one,
neither scientist nor engineer, can explain how he accomplished
this Herculean project.
Since it is documented that no one ever witnessed ED's labor in
building his rock gate park, some say he had supernatural powers.
Ed would only say that he knew the secrets used to build
the ancient pyramids and if he could learn them, you could too!

Large High-Speed Plastic Moving Sheet -
- Electrostatic(?) Problems -
D. Swenson, 3M Company
Bill Beaty's Weird Science
Tremendous static charge generation on a plastic web causes unique
physical phenomena and special problems. Solution was simple and cost
David Swenson of 3M describes an anomaly where workers encountered a
strange "invisible wall" in the area under a fast-moving sheet of
electrically charged polypropelene film in a factory. The "invisible
wall" was strong enough to prevent humans from passing through. A person
near this "wall" was unable to turn, and so had to walk backwards to
retreat from it.
This occurred in late summer in South Carolina, in extremely high
humidity. Polypropelene (PP) film on 50K ft. rolls 20ft wide was being
slit and transferred to multiple smaller spools. The film was taken off
the main roll, went upwards 20ft to overhead rollers, passed horizontally
20ft and then downwards to the slitting device, where it was spooled onto
shorter rolls. The whole operation formed a cubical shaped tent, with two
walls and a ceiling approximately 20ft square. The spools ran at
1000ft/min, or about 10MPH. The PP film had been manufactured with
dissimilar surface structure on opposing faces. Contact electrification
can occur even in similar materials if the surface textures or
micro-structures are significantly different. The generation of surface
charge imbalance during unspooling was therefor not unexpected, and is a
common problem in this industry.
On entering the factory floor and far from the equipment, a 200KV/ft
handheld electrometer was found to slam to full scale. When Mr. Swenson
attempted to walk through the corridor formed by the moving film, he was
stopped about half way through by an "invisible wall." He could lean all
his weight forward but was unable to pass. He observed a fly get caught
in the web.
The production manager did not believe Mr. Swenson's report of the strange
phenomena. When they both returned to the factory floor, they found that
the "wall" was no longer there. But the production workers had noticed
the effect as occurring early in the morning when humidity was lower, so
they agreed to try again another day. The second attempt was successful,
and early in the morning the field underneath the "tent" was strong enough
to raise even the short, curly hair of the production manager. The
"invisible wall" effect had returned. He commented that he "didn't know
whether to fix it or sell tickets."
- Bill Beaty
Problems: coulomb forces would be expected to attract a person into
the "chamber" formed by the PP film. There should be no "wall" in
the center, a "wall" is nonlinear. If for some reason a person
was repelled from the center of the chamber, the repulsion would exist
over a large distance, it would act like a deep pillow which exerts
more and more force as one moves deeper into it. This is how magnets
and iron behave, and this is how e-fields and objects should behave.
A Thought(Bill Beaty): unspooling of film typically generates higher net charge on
the long piece of film than on the limited surface of the spool. But
since net charge is conserved, imbalances MUST be equal and opposite.
The smaller surface charge on the spool indicates that opposite charge
is being lost through some unseen path, most probably as IONIZED AIR.
Charged air would arise in the cleft between film and spool as the film
was peeled from the spool. I wonder if film was peeled from the top of
the spool, so that any ionized air would be launched into the
"tent-chamber" region? If it was peeled from the bottom of the spool,
the charged air would end up outside the tent.
So, if the charged "tent" of film is negative in the above situation,
and if a large quantity of positively charged air is being generated,
then perhaps the "invisible wall" is caused by air ions. Perhaps it is
a pressure gradient created by ionized air trapped under the tent by
electrostatic attraction. Yet this effect would be expected to create a
diffuse zone of increasing force, not a "wall", but an "invisible
However, a volume of charged air is somewhat analogous to iron
filings near a magnet. If a solid sheet of iron filings is held in
place by a magnet, then a literal "wall" is created, and this wall will
resist penetration. If in the above manufacturing plant a sheet of
highly charged air is for some reason being held in place by the fields
created by the charged film, then a transparent "wall" made of charged
air would come into being. It would resist penetration.
My question is this: if the entire situation could be turned on its
side, so the "invisible wall" became an "invisible floor", could a
person stand on it? Have we discovered the long-sought "Zero-G
waterbed?" :) - B.B.

Also: I wonder if the (I assume) huge quantity of air ions had anything to
do with your weird phenomenon. Maybe the "wall" effect involves a plug of
ionized air which is held in place by the opposite charge on the film. If
so, your repulsion phenomenon would not occur if the "tent" of film was
replaced with highly charged metal plates, since the source of
oppositely-polarized electric wind would then be missing. I'm still
convinced that the charged film should produce an attractive force upon a
human body. Repulsion requires that the human be charged with the same
polarity as the PP film, yet induction should produce an *opposite* body
charge, so attraction is expected. But if a plug of oppositely-charged
air was strongly attracted into the "tent" of PP film, it might produce a
significant pressure-gradient in the surrounding air. A fraction of a PSI
per foot would be more than enough to prevent someone from walking
forward. If this is the origin of the effect, then the repulsion forces
you experienced involved air pressure rather than electrostatic
This might be an entirely new way to accomplish levitation. Attract
a whirling blob of ionized air to an oppositely-charged plate, then use
the resulting pressure gradient to lift and manipulate uncharged objects.
Sort of like a fluidized bed, but using charged air instead of sand.
Why doesn't the population of opposite ions "plate" itself onto the
plastic surface? Maybe it tries to do so, but the air within the moving
tent is swirling like a horizontal tornado, so the charged air cannot
simply move straight to the plastic film. If true, then the phenomena
would not appear if motionless charged air and oppositely charged plastic
were present. The tent shape and the motion of the plastic would also be
required. Incredible coincidence that all the required components could
ever come together in one place! (if this is indeed how it works!)
