Letter of Support from Prof. Herman Branover
pursuant to his visit to the Correas' home and laboratories in mid-March 2004
Dear Dr. Paulo Correa and Alexandra Correa,
This is my promised letter in support of your efforts to make
your work public and to find worthy sponsors for its technologies.
First let me thank both of you, Dr. Eugene Mallove, Mr. Uri Soudak,
and Dr. Malgosia Askanas for your hospitality and affability,
the Kosher food, and the two books you so graciously gave me.
My wife and I spent two excellent days with you, which we shall not forget.
I was very moved by your lecture presentation on the first day of my visit.
I learned about what you call the fine structure and geometry of the electron,
about its constitutent wave functions and how it couples to electric fields,
specifically, how it couples to ambipolar energy. And I learned about the
spectrum of the latter, which you have identified. I equally enjoyed your
presentation of the work you two have done in electrodynamics - from your
discovery of the PAGD regime to your presentation of Aspden's Law of
Electrodynamics, and the questions later raised by your work (in massfree
electric energy and the 'vacuum response') with respect to a complete
understanding of electrodynamics. I know you're intent on publishing your
work in this area, and I will eagerly await having a chance to read it.
It was most intriguing to learn that your proposed fusion reactor employs
electrodynamic control and is designed to output both heat and electricity.
I was also most impressed with the visit to your labs. Despite all the
packed boxes, you gave me a demonstration of a PAGD-flywheel inverter system
that reached some 17,000 rpm, and introduced me to your technique of tuning
the reactor. You showed me examples of oscillographic samples from the
operation of the converter system, including a remarkable sample from a
different electrodynamic system that output 17kW flat for the entire duration.
You also showed me a wheel that appeared to turn continuously on its own.
In the biology lab, I was introduced to your field and contact meter designed
to detect both ambipolar radiation and latent heat. I remember well just
how enthusiastic Gene was to introduce me to his own observations with your
meter. In my view, these technologies which you have developed are definitely
worthy of both serious scientific consideration and committed financial
The presentations by Uri - on the business plan for your four power
technologies and the Institute dedicated solely to aetherometric research -
and by Gene - on your general strategy, and on the billions of dollars that have been fruitlessly spent
on failed R&D in so many fields of investigation -
were most illuminating. They made very clear the problem you are faced with:
that it is far easier to find financing to be thrown away on the wrong
improvements to a failing paradigm, than it is to find money committed
to a new paradigm that is worthy of investigation. I know that I promised
that for a full month and a half I would do my best to find a sponsor for
your energy projects. I tried very hard. For reasons I don't understand,
the sponsor who had originally asked me to come to visit you did not even
want my report after I came back. And, so far, others that I have tried have
made promises - but have not followed through. But I have not given up hope,
and despite my failing health, I will continue to try.
You have my permission to make this letter public, if you think it will help
your efforts to disseminate your work and to find worthy sponsors. I thank
you, once again, for a most enjoyable occasion, and I thank our common
friend, Gene Mallove, for having made it possible.
Please accept my deepest thanks,
Prof. Herman Branover
