Electrogravitics is a hypothesis proposed by Nikola Tesla and Tesla's subsequent extensive experimentation and demonstrations of the effect. The term was in widespread use by 1956. The effects of electrogravity have been searched for extensively in countless experiments since the beginning of the 20th century. To date, other than Tesla's experiments and the more recent ones reported by R. L. Talley, Eugene Podkletnov, and Giovanni Modanese, "no conclusive evidence of electrogravitic signatures has been found". Recently, some investigation has begun in electrohydrodynamics (EHD) or sometimes electro-fluid-dynamics, a counterpart to the well-known magnetohydrodynamics, but these do not seem a priori to be related to Tesla's "electrogravitics". Electrokinetics is a term used by Thomas Townsend Brown for the electrically generated propulsive force. No widely accepted experimental data yet supports these calculations.

[h=2]Biefeld–Brown effect[/h] Research, based upon Thomas Townsend Brown's hypotheses, includes the idea that electrogravitics could be used as a means of propulsion for aircraft and spacecraft. Electrogravitic processes use an electric field to charge or, more properly, polarize an object with a specially-constructed shape. Brown's disks, for example, used an "asymmetrical" capacitor, sketches of which can be found in the literature pertaining to the Biefeld–Brown effect. The field became popular in the mid-1950s, but rapidly declined in popularity within mainstream science after a startlingly successful demonstration of Brown's "tethered disks" to an audience that included U.S. military observers. Reportedly, with the polarization voltage for the "asymmetrical capacitors" that made up the disks newly increased to about 150,000 volts, the disks flew around their tethered track at "frightening" velocity. This level of performance strongly suggests that the Biefield-Brown effect involves physics very different from simple electrostatics, which can be used to "levitate" objects under suitable conditions, but certainly cannot produce "frightening" velocities as in Brown's demonstration.
Electrostatic levitation is used, for instance, in Robert Millikan's oil drop experiment and is used to suspend the gyroscopes in Gravity Probe B during launch. Earnshaw's theorem shows that no static arrangement of classical electrostatic fields can be used to stably levitate an object. There is a point where the two fields cancel, but it is unstable. It is possible to design a feedback control system that uses dynamically changing electric fields to hold an object in position, but these purely electrostatic systems do not lend themselves to producing the kinds of acceleration demonstrated in Brown's tethered-disk experiments.
The Biefeld–Brown effect was initially investigated by Thomas Townsend Brown (USA) and Dr. Paul Alfred Biefeld (Germany) in the 1920s. Research continued through the 1950s and 1960s by Brown and other researchers. The use of this electrogravitic propulsion effect was further explored during the publicized era of gravity control propulsion research, which included the United States gravity control propulsion initiative. The effect was almost certainly included in the research conducted at Martin Aircraft's RIAS (Research Institute for Advanced Studies) unit in Baltimore during this period, which is reported to have been specifically interested in gravity, and which hired Burkhard Heim as a consultant because his "Heim Theory" appeared to have significant implications for the nature of gravity.
[h=2]Seversky's patent[/h] During 1964, Alexander P. de Seversky had in fact published a lot of his own work in U.S. Patent 3,130,945. Unlike Brown, he believed that what he was seeing was a strictly electrostatic effect. To forestall any possible misunderstanding about his devices, he termed these flying machines as ionocrafts.
[h=2]Criticism[/h] Byron Preiss considered electrogravitics development to be "much ado about nothing, started by a bunch of engineers who didn't know enough physics". Preiss stated that electrogravitics, like exobiology, is "a science without a single specimen for study".
NASA funded a study  in 2004 entitled "Asymmetrical Capacitors for Propulsion" in which it created a simple ion drift model wherein ions drift "... from one electrode to the other under electrostatic forces, and imparting momentum to air as they underwent multiple collisions." The report concludes that "... the ion drift model explains how a thrust is developed by ions pushing on air" and that there was no evidence to support "...new physical principles being responsible for the thrust" produced in lifters.
[h=2]Talley's report[/h] In May, 1991, the U.S. Air Force Systems Command, Propulsion Directorate, published a Final Report on a project by Veritay Technology, Inc., led by Principal Investigator R. L. Talley, entitled "Twenty First Century Propulsion Concept". The Abstract summarizes as follows:
"This Phase II SBIR contract was concerned with exploring the Biefeld-Brown effect which allegedly converts electrostatic energy directly into a propulsive force in a vacuum environment." ... "...no detectable propulsive force was electrostatically induced by applying a static potential difference up to 19 kV between the electrodes of test devices under conditions in which electrical breakdowns did not occur. Near the conclusion of this program, force generation effects were examined using a high dielectric constant, ceramic piezoelectric material between electrodes of an asymmetric test device under voltage conditions which caused repetitive electrical breakdowns to occur. Very limited test results of this type suggest that anomalous forces were produced, and these may warrant further consideration in the future."
[h=2]Haisch, Puthoff and others[/h] More recently, Bernard Haisch, Harold E. Puthoff, and several other physicists have shown intriguing connections between electromagnetics, notably the electromagnetic zero-point field, and inertia, and have speculated about possible further connections with gravity. Physicist Ning Li and engineer Eugene Podkletnov have, respectively, shown theoretically, and reported observing experimentally, anomalous gravitic attenuation effects above a superconducting disk spinning in a strong magnetic field such as is produced in a Meissner effect demonstration apparatus. According to Li, rotating ions create a gravitomagnetic field perpendicular to their spin axis. If a large number of ions could be aligned, (in a Bose–Einstein condensate) the resulting effect would be a very strong gravitomagnetic field producing a strong repulsive force. The alignment may be possible by trapping superconductor ions in a lattice structure in a high-temperature superconducting disc. Giovanni Modanese has conducted further experiments on the phenomena seen by Podkletnov, and has reported some additional much stronger, but transient, anomalous gravitational effects.
[h=2]Steven Clarke[/h] In December 2011, whilst attempting to build a "lifter, a device alleged by some to use ionic wind, and by some to use a variation of the Biefield-Brown effect, Steven Clarke in England demonstrated a lifter embodying subtle differences from the standard model, which not only reduces, but will also increase its apparent weight depending upon the supply polarity. Clarke uses the term Electro/Inertial Transducer to describe his device, which he is currently demonstrating to interested parties.
[h=1]David Hamel Motor[/h]
David Hamel (1924-2007) spent over 30 years of his life seeking to understand the ancient physics of what he considered to be "Perpetual motion. Creation physics."
Supposedly, the "3 cone device" or "3CD" gives forth the principle of perpetual motion via 3-body interaction physics to the zero point energy field via the usage of duality/magnetism and of vibration. Chaos physics induced through 3-body interactions. Chaos induced to provide runaway conditions of acceleration in the apparatus. A method of 'straining the aether' through torsion field interactions through magnetism and extreme vibration.

[h=2]Ancient Historical Origin[/h] The physics are presumed to be encoded into worldwide ancient sites. Most noteably, Giza plateau, stonehenge, Teotihuacan and others. It was considered to be Atlanteian in origin. Remnants of a once high society (higher than ours currently). A direct reference in heiroglyphs would be the Holy Djed or the Osiris pillar. The Thoth Emerald tablets also reveal an importance towards this technology. This technology being outside of our historical understandings of science and nature.
Using sacred geometry or the geometry of nature in the designing of apparatus' (cone shapes, or PI involved, curved geometry) which in operation displays an unusual function outside of established technologies of today, which are mostly axial rotational driven/solid state etc. Sacred geometry occuring in all sorts of ancient sites worldwide, it is a marker for an earlier/previous civilization of high magnitude achievements. This is not world known and is hard to prove without technology such as the Hamel 3CD. The 3CD makes clear of the actual usage of this geometry.
The usage of sacred geometry is a misunderstood aspect of natural science of today. It has a much greater usage than known widely by today's populace. It belongs to the science of zero point energy and energy extraction. Also, a form of black hole and white hole creation physics through vibration. Another label also being "Creation Physics".

Inventor of the "Searle Disc", a device which is alleged to be capable of Anti-Gravity via a rotating metal plate which built up a high electrical charge on the outside rim of the disc.
In 1949 Mr J.R.R. Searl was employed by the midlands electricity board as a electronic and electrical fitter. He was enthusiastic about the subject of electricity though he had no formal education on the subject other than what is required by the job. Unhindered by conventional ideas about electricity he carried out his own investigation into the subject. During work on electrical motors and generators he noticed that a small EMF was produced by spinning metal parts the negative towards the outside and positive towards the rotational axis. In 1950 he experimented with rotating slip rings and measured a small EMF on a conventional meter. He also noticed that when the rings were spinning freely and no current was taken his hair bristled.
His conclusions were that free electrons in the metal were spun out by centrifugal force, a centripetal force being produced by the static field in the metal. He decided to build a generator based on the principal. It had a segmented rotor disc passing through electromagnets at its periphery. The electromagnets were energized from the rotor and were intended to boost the EMF. By 1952 the first generator had been constructed and was about three feet in diameter. It was tested in the open by searl and a friend.
The armature was set in motion by a small engine. The device produced the expected electrical power but at a unexpectedly high potential. At relatively low armature speeds an electrical potential of the order of 10^5 (ten to the power of five) was produced as indicated by the static effects on nearby objects. A characteristic crackling and the smell of ozone supported his conclusion. The really unexpected then occurred - while still speeding up the generator lifted and rose to a height of fifty feet, breaking the union between itself and the engine. Here it stayed for a while still speeding up and surrounding itself with a pink halo - this indicated ionization of the air at a much reduced pressure of about 1-3 mm Hg. More interesting was the side effect causing local radio receivers to go on their own accord. This could have been due to ionizing discharge electromagnetic induction. Finally and perhaps thankfully the whole generator accelerated at a fantastic rate and is thought to have gone off into space. Since that day Searl had made some 10 or more small flying craft some of which have been similarly lost and developed a form of control. Larger craft have also been built - some 12 ft and two 30ft in diameter. The antics of his machines have given rise to much speculation as to the origin of so called "flying saucers" specially in the area of Warminster in Wilshire.
