I’ve been getting feedback that some people are extremely disappointed with what they consider to be a failed validation of the Yildiz magnet motor at the Geneva Inventors Expo. They feel abused by the fundraiser they chipped in with to help met get over there that pulled in over $4,000 USD.

While reminding you of the article I wrote following the event: 35+ Reasons Why I Think Yildiz’ Magnet Motor Really Works, I will agree there were a lot of let-downs compared to the expectations we were given about what was supposed to transpire at the demo.


Let me itemize a few.

We were told Muammer Yildiz has build 58 units over the years, and that he would be showing up at the expo with at least three of them; but he only showed up with two.

We were told that at least one unit was going to be able to run continuously for all five days, both during the expo during the day as well as through the night. But instead, only one unit was operational, and it only ran for 4.5 hours before malfunctioning to the point that it could not be run continuously. Mr. Yildiz wasn’t willing to go for broke and let it run anyway, even though it could undergo cascading failure. He’s had that version for 15 years, and apparently the sentimental value prevented him from taking that risk.

But it’s even worse than that. What I haven’t reported yet is that even before the mechanical failure on the first day, the night before, on April 9, Dr. Jorge Duarte informed us that Mr. Yildiz didn’t want to run the motor through the night, even though we had a comfortable location (the villa Rene rented) to do it. He hadn’t decided for sure, but was leaning in that direction, and I was pissed. Rene’s documentary film crew recorded a major confrontation I had with Assistant Professor Duarte that night as we discussed this issue. I saw it as catastrophic to Yildiz’ reputation, given the expectations people had for the demo and what we had been promised would be shown. Durate saw it as damaging but not irrepairable, given the follow-up tests that were being planned, which would ultimately vindicate the technology.

Another major letdown was that we had been told a couple of weeks prior that there might be a unit that was so convincing that it would take only a few minutes of operation to satisfy the skeptics. But apparently, Mr. Yildiz decided at the last minute to leave that alleged 5 kW unit behind in Izmir, for several reasons: 1) the border-crossing paperwork they had received from the Turkish Patent office did not describe that motor, and he didn’t want to risk having problems getting it across some border; 2) that version is very transparent, and his IP is not yet secured in a patent; 3) five kilowatts is a lot of power and therefore is not nearly as safe to be have running in a non-secure, non-controlled environment of a public expo with people coming and going without realizing what they could be bumping into.

It is that 5 kW unit that allegedly will be the primary subject of a scientific evaluation by Chava Energy on June 8 in Izmir, Turkiye. There are other units of varying outputs that may also be tested at that time, but there isn’t an identical copy or duplicate of the 5 kW unit; and given the failure of the 15-year-old unit at the Geneva expo, we should be prepared for the possibility that the 5 kW unit likely will not last for 24 hours of continuous running. I talked to Chava CEO, Hagen Ruff today, and he would be satisfied even with a 500 or 800 W demonstration that could last for 24 hours.

Another letdown that materialized even before the expo was that we had been told that the primary unit Mr. Yildiz planned on showing was capable of 20 HP, but would only be running a fan that pulls a load that had been measured at 380 Watts. If that were true, then it would only take 4.5 hours of continuously running to rule out lithium-iron batteries the size of the motor. However, as we were given the specs of the fan blade he would be using, and the speed it would be turning, we realized that at best, the load might be in the range of 20 – 50 Watts — and even if that motor ran continuously for the five days, 24 hours each day, it wouldn’t be enough time to rule out some of the better batteries available today.

We were also told that even though one of the units would normally be set at a low power level, that it was capable of running at much higher levels, and that occasionally we could see a demonstration of it running at much higher levels. Nothing of the sort was ever demonstrated. The one functioning motor allegedly had a feedback mechanism such that once it reached a certain speed, it would not surpass that range. We only saw two speeds demonstrated. On and off. Full speed or under brake (stopped).

And we were told that we (at least a few of us) would have the opportunity to burn our hands by trying to stop the motor by grabbing the shaft. I was looking forward to that. However, while I was observing during the 4.5-hour continuous run, no one was given that opportunity during the Geneva demo; but no one asked during that time, that I know of. However, I did notice in a video of the same motor, posted March 25, 2013, that Yildiz let someone make this attempt. Go to time stamp 8:53. It is quite impressive. Though the person slows the rotation, he does not stop it. That certainly represents a lot more than 50 Watts of torque load.

Another letdown for me was that we were told that the Turkish Patent Office was supportive of Yildiz’ attendance, but I found them to be a pain in the ass. They were repeatedly on my case (via Yildiz, via Halil) for having a chair out on the carpeted portion of the walkway running by the booth. Even though I put a sign on the chair stating: “This chair represents 400 people” due to the webcam it was associated with. (400 being a likely number when the thing was running; but in actuality, the number was closer to 70 even though the motor wasn’t running.) I actually jeopardized my good relationship with Halil and Mr. Yildiz by standing firm and keeping my chair there. Anywhere else, and the view would have been obstructed by people visiting the booth. I finally went and spoke with the Palexpo Secretariat to get explicit permission to have a chair in the walkway; and even then, I felt as though I was a Jew being scrutinized by a Nazi by the other Turkish contingent in the adjoining booths. Also, one of the reasons the night before that Mr. Yildiz was considering scrapping the endeavor to run the motor through the night is that the Turkish Patent Office was not being cooperative in providing a more secure venue for that demo. He had expected that they would come through in opening up a facility for that purpose.

And speaking of logistical letdowns, I had the understanding that we would have a good Internet connection by which I could broadcast the live webcam. In the U.S., we take good Internet for granted, but in Europe, you cannot make the assumption that the bandwidth will be sufficient. At first, I paid for two days, forking out 70 Euros; but that speed was woefully inadequate. The image that went out was a freeze frame that updated maybe a few times each minute. Then, I forked out 400+ Euros to get a high-speed connection that might be operational after lunch (but wasn’t actually installed until the next morning, the second day), with no refund of the first amount I paid. This was before the failure, and was essentially rendered moot by the failure. I could have gotten by with the free connection since nothing was happening in terms of continuous operation.

I’ve still not gotten word back from the hosting service to tell me why PESWiki (host of http://YildizDemo.com) was down for nearly 8 hours at the beginning of the demo on April 10. It may have been the traffic, but I doubt that because we’ve gotten much heavier traffic when I’ve been on Coast to Coast AM, and the site has held up for that. I’m sure that contributed to people feeling let down as well.

Overall, we were told ahead of time that the idea of the demonstration was to over-deliver on what we were expecting; and instead, the demonstration fell extremely short of the expectations that had been set.


Even though there was all this disappointment, I still came away more convinced that the Yildiz Magnet Motor does indeed work, than before I went to Geneva. I place it in the “very likely” classification, not having had enough evidence to consider it “certain” yet. And I should mention that in the poll about the motor, the number of affirmative respondents is increasing, while the negative respondents are decreasing. Compare from the first day I posted the poll to what it looks like as of the time of this writing:

130417_510am_Yildiz-survey-results_444The biggest shift is in the number of “probably not” versus “definitely not” votes, the latter losing 9 points to the former.

130504_215am_Yildiz-survey-results_444The hard-core skepticism is diminishing. And on the affirmative end, now 51 separate people have voted “certain of it”. I’d be curious to know what gives them that much confidence.

I learned long ago that it is important to not let failed expectations ruin life. You have to be willing to let things unfold how they unfold and not try and force things or get bend out of shape when things don’t materialize as you wanted them to.

Even though there were a lot of let-downs, there were also a lot of good things that came from the trip. I’ve elaborated on most of those already in the 35+ Reasons Why I Think Yildiz’ Magnet Motor Really Works article. Briefly, here are some highlights:

  • Dr. Duarte came out very strong in support of the motor. He is obviously fully convinced that it is real, having seen it run many times for extended periods of time. Having seen inside, he certifies that there are no batteries or other trick mechanisms inside. It is what it claims to be: an all-magnet motor. Seeing him so lit up with enthusiasm talking to one person after another who came by the booth, and watching his body language, told me he was sincere and very sure of what he was saying.
  • Speaking of body language, I also found Yildiz to be consistent with what he says. He is the proud father of this technology, and even though the motor didn’t run continuously as originally planned, he seemed pleased every time he turned it on, as though showing a newborn baby to ogling siblings.
  • I was impressed by the many evidences that this is indeed a magnet motor contraption, as manifest by the many magnetic tests and magnetic effects shown.
  • The sound the motor made before and after the malfunction was consistent with a noise a malfunction would make, and seeing the damaged magnets that were extracted near midnight that night gave further corroboration that there had been a malfunction.
  • Watching Yildiz start and stop the motor about once every hour enabled me to get engrained in my head the fact that the start-up and stopping attributes are consistent with a braking mechanism stopping the motion, and its release allowing motion — not some hidden electric motor causing the rotation.

Trip to Fabrice Andre’s and Verteole

Another highlight of the trip for me was being able to go visit Fabrice Andre’s lodge and see the many exotic technologies he’s working on. (Story 1 | Story 2)

People have ragged on me, saying that I was just “taking a great vacation on what was supposed to be a validation event.”

In actuality, my ‘down time’ (relaxation) when I was not working my butt off either observing, interviewing, writing stories, editing videos, uploading videos, updating the blog, discussing business with people, was maybe 2 hours on those two days when I was at Mont Blanc.

While others were sleeping, after a long day, I stayed up late and got up early to report what I was seeing. Throughout the duration of the trip, I was consistently the last one up and the first one awake, except the morning at his lodge.

And it’s not like Fabrice Andre’s technology is just another in a long stream of crazy claims. One of his technologies could jump to number 1 in our Top 5 Exotic Free Energy Technologies listing. By traveling 100 km to Verteole’s facility, we verified that Fabrice is indeed involved in bringing a kit to market.

He said it might cost 200 Euros for the kit, and it would produce 2 kW of power. I’m guessing that the kit will not contain all the needed components, but only the hard-to source items; and that the entire cost will be quite a bit higher than that. I’m still trying to get an interview with Patrick from Verteole to discuss the kit.

Himansh Verma Visit

Also, on the last day that I was in Geneva, and for the first few days after I returned to the States, I helped organize about ten people to visit with Himansh Verma from India as he traveled through Europe, looking to license the self-looped motor-generator technology he is involved with. (Story)

That one is in top position on the page that is number one in our Top 5. But it could be replaced by other close contenders. One of the people I met at the expo has a 10 kW version of this technology that they have been working on independently.

Not a Wasted Trip

So even though there were a lot of let-downs in regard to what we were expecting with the Yildiz magnet motor versus what actually transpired, can you see why I don’t consider the trip to be a failure? Far from it. In fact, I dare say that it was easily well worth the $4000+ that was raised to send me over there. And I would say that would be true, even without the trip to Fabrice Andre’s lodge, and without helping to coordinate Himansh trip, which were like bonuses of the trip.

In summary, I don’t have the slightest tinge of guilt about having raised $4000+ to go to Geneva. I feel that my dedication and accomplishments and reporting are all well worth what people paid to send me over there.

So I hope that when I post the next fundraiser that you will not hold back like you did on the most recent one I posted, with only two people donating $10 each so far.

We’re kicking the corrupt NWO establishment’s butt (and they don’t even realize it yet), peacefully, and we appreciate your support.
