Is free energy a crazy idea? The conspiracy theorists who say free energy technology has existed since at least the time of Tesla, and that this knowledge has deliberately been suppressed, do have mounting scientific evidence to support the idea that it's possible to get "something" from "nothing". Here's a link to a recent New Scientist magazine article about the scientific research in this regard. Let me quote the opening paragraphs from this article, "Harnessing the Quantum Power of Empty Space", which was written by David Harris:
"NOTHING will come of nothing." Shakespeare's epithet seems the kind of self-evident statement that only poets and philosophers would argue over. And physicists like Chris Wilson.
Last year, Wilson and his team at the Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, provided what seems a particularly egregious case of something for nothing. They claimed to have conjured up light from nowhere simply by squeezing down empty space (New Scientist, 19 November 2011, p 16). That would be the latest manifestation of a quantum quirk known as the Casimir effect: the notion that a perfect vacuum, the very definition of nothingness in the physical world, contains a latent power that can be harnessed to move objects and make stuff.
Sightings of this vacuum action have been mounting over the past decade or so, leading some physicists to propose a new generation of nanoscale machines to take advantage of it, and others even to suggest a leading role for vacuum energy in determining the origin and fate of the cosmos. Others remain to be convinced.
Within this online version of this New Scientist article there's a nice little three minute cartoon about the concept of energy from the supposed "nothing" of empty space, check it out.

Speaking about the concept of "nothingness", next week we'll look at this question: Are the Sixth and Ninth Dimension Empty? But first, coming up next: a Cadbury Eggs and the Sixth Dimension.
Enjoy the journey!
