Daily WOW: Boy Harnesses Free Energy

Max Loughan - Youtube

The Daily Catch - published on 05/31/16

Max Loughan, 13, has built a generator that pulls electricity right out of the air to power just about anything:

Loughan’s invention uses an old coffee can, some coils of wire and a spoon. It makes enough energy to light a string of LED lights wrapped around his twin brother Jack.

Max is about as bright-eyed and excited as a kid can be. In his lab coat he tinkers all day in his boiler room turned laboratory (he also seems thrilled to be in a boiler room). His inventiveness is incredible for his age, but what’s more incredible is this young man’s attitude:

“The future that I imagine is the future, frankly, that we all imagine… If you got energy, you got power, you got everything…” “To make the world a better place, to give the world what it doesn’t have, so that it doesn’t have to struggle with basic things like energy… My true goal is to help. To invent a future where people can be happy, where people can be safe and sound.”

The technology was originally developed by a scientist named Dr. Mehran Tavakoli (M.T.) Keshe, and is appropriately named a Keshe generator:

The Keshe Generator is a self-nourishing system that consists of a rotating plasmatic magnetic field within a coil of copper wire, and has been developed from our new understanding of the creation of gravity. Just as our electrons spin naturally within our atoms, so too does the Keshe Electric Generator spin naturally within the laws of nature.

We look forward to seeing what Max will bring to the world in another 15 years. Cheers to Max for giving us something about which to say WOW, and perhaps to send us looking back at passages from Ezekiel!
