An STA Starts Producing Power! Let’s Run a Bunch of Tests!

So a fellow experimenter named Chuck (who has far more electrical experience and knowledge than I) is also doing some investigation with the Bashar STA. He has not only built a small scale model, but has also started doing measurements through an oscilloscope and is getting working proof of concept results! With a functioning STA, he added a metallic tetrahedron around the STA which seems to improve its ability to receive energy even further.

You can view his youtube channel, morpher44, to view any new videos that have since been posted, but for this blog post, I’ll embed the videos he’s shared with us thus far (at the time of this posting) along with a few comments about what the video is about.

Video 1) Showing the completed STA

This is his completed STA. He points out that it’s only 9 inches tall, which is well below the minimum height Bashar suggested previously (needs to be able to fit under a 3 foot tall pyramid.. so the STA has to be ~19″ tall), but it’s interesting to see that it still produces results.

Video 2) Slideshow showing the construction of the STA

I find it interesting, not only that he created an internal support structure with a creative split cone, but he also added some removable spikes along the side to guide the wire as it coiled around the support structure.

Video 3) STA used in Joule Thief circuit

He hooked up the STA up to an oscilloscope, showing its usage as a transformer

Video 4) Experiments with Radiant Energy

Using a signal generator and an oscope to find the STA’s self-resonance frequency (~1.229 MHz).

Looking at Tesla’s patent #685,957 to receive radiant energy. Adding a solid flat plate antenna to receive cosmic energy. Adding an AC to DC rectifier.

(There’s about enough energy here to power an apartment for a mouse.. which is one of the jokes about Tesla’s patent.)

Works even without Tesla’s plate. Showing the STA receiving energy.

Video 5) Tetrahedron casing

Building a 3-sided (plus 4th side for the bottom) foam/aluminum tetrahedron casing around the STA, and wiring the two together. Some changes in the output waveform are noticed. 🙂

Video 6) Tetrahedron as Capacitor

Fixing the tetrahedron size. Adding a large resistive load to the output.

Putting aluminum foil on both inside and outside of tetrahedron walls to make them capacitive. More output by connecting walls in paralle rather than in series. Creating shielding with the metallic tetrahedron walls.

This device IS producing power on its own, but not much. It’s only producing power in the picowatt to nanowatt range. He wants to do further testing with moving the STA outside so that it’s not affected by the house attenuating incoming energy.

With a plasma ball nearby (so that the STA picks up emitted energy), he can get it into the 1 milliwatt to the 5 milliwatt (1 mW – 5 mW) range.

Video 7) Plasma ball as exciter

The STA/tetrahedron is natively outputting 6 mV and 448 pW.

With the Plasma ball turned on (which emits a bunch of artificial cosmic radiation that can be detected by the STA anywhere in the room), the STA produces much more energy, 30.6V and 9 mW, enough to run LED’s off of.

The closer the plasma ball is to the tetrahedron, the more power the STA gets, and vice versa.

With the plasma ball touching the tetrahedron, the output voltage starts climbing over 60V and he backs off because his caps are limited to 50V. 🙂

Video 8 ) Inverse square law

In this video, he starts testing out the inverse square law to measure how much power you get out of either a 12×12″ square plate (control) or his tetrahedron/STA by progressively moving a plasma ball farther away from the aluminum plate(s).

The flat plate works better, given that it’s both larger and not tilted away from the plasma ball, but both of them work.

He gets a linear drop off up until he reaches 12″ of distance away, then it changes and the fall-off lessens until he reaches 20″ of distance away which is when power falloff really drops out.

The STA actually starts to do better at large distances because it has a lot more surface area exposed to the room in every direction. (This is re-addressed and corrected in the follow-up video.)

Video 9) Wavelength thought experiment

He addresses the previous plasma ball inverse square law experiment by noting that there are other variables at work in the room such as light bulbs, measuring tapes, and even the person’s metabolism changing.

Doing some tests to find the resonant frequencies and using sound output to help him out, the radio starts transmitting some really funky sounds, which bothers both him and his dog (and me to be honest, watching the video…)

Moving the STA out from inside the metallic pyramid definitely reduces the power. Putting it back in the center boosts the energy.

He also poses a question… when energy travels down the copper wire of the cone, does the frequency of the energy change or does the velocity of the energy in the wire change?

Video 10) High voltage ping experiment

In this video, he experiments with pulsing it with high voltage fields and seeing what happens. He’s able to get some echos.

Video 11) Power Curve Experiment

In this video, he sets up the plasma ball at the apparent fuzzy distance between the near field and far field and starts experimenting with a variety of resistive loads, seeing how it affects the output voltage.

He also points out, regarding the antenna design, that the foil tetrahedron is touching the top of the coiled antenna while the bottom of the coiled antenna is wired out to the AC to DC converter.

That’s it for now, up to the date of this posting. You can continue viewing his most recent videos by visiting his youtube channel.

Thanks for all the awesome work Chuck, and for sharing your continued results with us!! 🙂

Video 12) Audio Tones from Coil

In this video, he talks about hooking the antenna up to an AC to DC converter and using that to try and charge a 9v rechargeable battery. He also uses a joule thief circuit to excite the antenna and start providing it with power. While charging  9v battery with a 6v battery, he noticed an audio tone being emitted from the center-ish of the STA itself.

Adjusting a potentiometer, he’s able to adjust the frequency of that sound. It’s interesting to note that looking at the sound through a spectrum analyzer, you see a whole collection of harmonics.. basically peaks in the spectrum.

Video 13) Full Scale

In this video, he shares the design specs for a full scale STA. It’s about 2 feet tall (to fit under the 3 ft. tall pyramid), is composed of two 370 ft. lengths of 14 gauge wire, and features 180 turns. He also shows the constructed antenna.

Video 14) LRC Circuit

Using a software circuit simulator, he simulates an electrical pulse into the STA and shows that to maximize the duration of the ringing effect, we want a small resistance, large inductance, and small capacitance.

He also creates a tesla coil spark gap and shows what happens when you connect the STA to it. It basically starts magnifying the output, decreasing the load on the other power source, and making the output more erratic.

Video 15) Give a Little, Get a Little

In this video he does a test to show that if you stimulate the coil with lower power but high voltage, the reception improves.

Video 16) Bigger Plate Antenna

In this video he hooks the STA up to a 10’x20″ flat plate which acts like an external antenna. Hooking the STA up to an oscope, he shows that the antenna is receiving a very very very small amount of power out of the air.

Bashar talking about Nikola Tesla

Nikola Tesla And Free Energy

Q: Could you tell us a little bit about Nikola Tesla and who he was?

B: He was Nikola Tesla. (AUD: laughter) And that individual simply recognized the connection of the idea of the primal energy vibrations that were inherent in your electromagnetic fields upon your planet. He understood that they could always be channeled and transformed into whatever type of energy was necessary for whatever your imagination so conceived.

Q: I recently watched a movie about his life and they put forth the idea that he had developed a system whereby energy would be free…

B: Yes.

Q: … to everyone.

B: Yes.

Q: And you would merely need to put up an antennae.

B: Yes.

Q: So, is that available to us?

B: Of course.

Q: Okay.

B: Do you wish to build it?

Q: It sounds exciting.

B: Then go ahead. Rely upon the seven and one half cycles per second Earth frequency; and recognize as that individual recognized, that a transmission tower that would vibrate at that frequency would create a wavelength that is radiating outwards from that tower in circular fashion, exactly, coincidentally, the same as the diameter of your planet.

Therefore it would reach the equator, go to the other pole of the planet, bounce back and create a set of vibrational harmonic resonances with the entire planet, that would activate, crystallize and energize your entire electromagnetic field. Allowing you always, through any conductive material inserted within the ground, to be able to draw upon that energy. It is like turning your entire planet into a generator.

Q: A very interesting idea. Could you suggest where I might find reading material please?

B: You will find it.

Q: Okay. And how tall are we talking about the tower being?

B: You will find out. Again draw from the wealth of information around you and trust your own synchronicity. Also, do not forget that at this time, that particular consciousness is also taping into those who are taping into him, and will assist.

Q: Did he reincarnate again?

B: Not really.

Q: Could you explain the seven and one half cycles again?

B: Simply you will find that the circumference of a planet divided into what you call the speed of light, will give the cycles per second in the frequency of the world.

For it simply is the equational relationship to why the idea of any given material body exhibits the frequency that it does. Because you create the idea of the speed of light to be the representation of the primal energy pulse within your third density vibration.

In other words, what you call one hundred and eighty-six thousand, three hundred miles per second, divided by the twenty-five thousand miles circumference, will give you seven and one half. Seven and one half cycles per second.

Q: I see.

B: All right.

Q2: So, could we construct the tower on the moon in the same way and get all the energy we need by its frequency?

B: If you are on the moon.

Q: Well, you know they’re always talking about how difficult it would be to set up a life-station on the moon and…

B: We understand what you are saying.

Q: Sure.

B: Yes, it is a good idea, in your terms. You can also, in your terms, convert the energy, and beam it to your planet. You can utilize your moon as a generating station.

Q: Well, if we could have this idea on Earth, why would we need to do that?

B: In this way you may find, that because of the systems you have set up upon your Earth now, the system we are now discussing would probably disrupt them. Therefore, if you were to set it up upon your moon, you could convert it at your own leisure away from all the systems you now have upon Earth, and simply convert it, and beam it to where you wish to. Without burning out the systems you have.

Q: Sure. Okay, thanks.

B: Thank you!

Combining the STA with a Pyramid

I’ve been wondering exactly where the power inputs and outputs to this STA are. I’ve been sparking it (starting it up) by quickly touching the top and bottom of the STA with household 120V AC current. The idea is that this will make it start electromagnetically resonating, and thanks to its shape, it will start to create a self-amplification effect. It’s sorta like a bell that continues to keep ringing after you initially strike it. Great, but how do you get power out of it? Well Bashar mentioned that it acts like a transformer and transformers require two nearby non-physically-touching coils to work. Our STA does have two coils, but they’re touching so it won’t work as a transformer. So if it’s going to function as one, we’re going to need another coil for it to induce a current upon.

Secondly, Bashar has mentioned previously, “This is the first component of a device that will allow you to tap into the electromagnetic field and convert directly into different kinds of energy that you can use.” Furthermore, “In order to have any effect in your reality at all, this device as we have just described it must stand at least as large as the following dimensions: It must be able to fit precisely underneath an imaginary 3-sided pyramid that is 3 feet tall.”

He could have said “It needs to be at least X feet tall, but he specifically mentioned it in relation to the pyramid.” So I’m guessing that’s another clue as well.

So it’s certainly possible that this STA will ultimately be running inside a pyramid-shaped structure.

Beautiful 3D Renderings of the STA

Don, from the discussion board, posted some absolutely gorgeous 3D renderings of what a finished uninsulated STA would look like.

Now first off, the goal for his design looks to be to get it to fit precisely inside a 3 foot tall pyramid, as Bashar mentioned.

For this model, Don said he used 3/16″ copper tubing. With my experience using 1/4″ (4/16″) copper tubing, this definitely won’t be able to hold its shape using soft copper tubing. Hard copper tubing requiring machinery to shape will be necessary so that it can be self-standing, similar to how you see strong springs that can actually support external weight.

Secondly, the inside of the cone we may not be able to fashion into such a fine point. With soft tubing, the tube would actually collapse and bend if you bent it too sharply. So instead of a sharp point, I wound up with a small diameter circular winding. In any event, perhaps things would be different with hard copper tubing.

Either way, these are some beautiful renderings of exactly what we have in mind to create.

From this point it would be a matter of insulating the STA (spray-on/paint-on insulation should work), figuring out how to start it up and pull power out of it, and there we go! 🙂

Thanks Don for the beautiful renders!! 🙂

Simulating the STA Magnetic Field

So Bashar mentioned that this STA (space-time antenna) is like a capacitor and an inductor, both of which require a steady and continuous flow of AC current to function. It sounds like we will need to start the STA up with an external source of AC current and this device will begin resonating in such a way that it will amplify our initial external input of current. Hopefully the energy that it transforms down from higher level energy will be enough to cycle back into the STA to get it to continue to function. At the same time, I’m hoping there’s excess energy that we’ll be able to tap into and pull out of the antenna, using to power other devices. So the idea is that this becomes a self-sustaining device, producing excess power that we can remove from the system.

Anyways, at this point I’m going back over electromagnetic theory and trying to figure out how the magnetic field will look once we start running a current through it. For example, here’s what the magnetic field lines will look like when current is passed through a straight coil called a solenoid:

Magnetic field in a straight coil of wire

(Image credit: NDT Resource Center)

You can see that the strongest area of the magnetic field is inside the core of the solenoid.

Now our design is going to be a bit different of course, but I’m guessing it’ll still be somewhat similar in that the magnetic field’ll be strongest in the core. Curious how the unique shape of the STA will create a magnetic field, I’ve been looking into ways of simulating the design in software. My friends on the STA Discussion Board shared a list of EM simulation software. Working through that list, one of the programs I tried was Vizimag. After contacting the developer and him helping me get started (thank you!!), I was able to put together simulation models for this STA.

First off we have the magnetic field for just one cone operating independently:

Single cone coil magnetic field

Single cone coil magnetic field

The magnetic field of single cone-shaped coil looks pretty simple to understand and is pretty much what we’d expect, looking at the cylindrical solenoid magnetic field shown earlier.

To get a better perspective, let’s look at a color mapped version of the magnetic field.

Single Cone Magnetic Field

Single Cone Magnetic Field

We can also add some contour lines to this image for a bit more definition.

Single Cone Magnetic Field with contour lines

Single Cone Magnetic Field with contour lines

Looking at this, we can see that the magnetic field gets stronger inside the cone the closer we get to the pointy apex.

Now when we add the second cone through the first, things get a little bit more complex. Here’s how the magnetic field for our STA’s double cone-shaped coil looks:

STA magnetic field (click to see it larger)

STA magnetic field

If you visualize the STA on an XY axis broken up into 4 quadrants, you get 4 small cones each pointing towards the middle of the STA, one small cone in each quadrant. Magnetically speaking, each one of the 4 smaller single cone antennas performs similar to our large single individual cone shown above. Interesting…

To make the overall magnetic field easier to visualize, let’s look at a color mapped version. The brighter and hotter the colors, the more magnetic field you’re getting. The darker and blacker the region, the less magnetic field is created when we run a current through the STA.

STA Colored Magnetic Field

STA Colored Magnetic Field

Looking at this, we can see that the majority of the magnetic field is occuring closest to the actual wires themselves. The 4 smaller cones we talked about earlier is the next most dense area. The core is definitely a dead zone.

To help illustrate this even further, let’s add some contour lines.

STA Colored Magnetic Field with contour lines

STA Colored Magnetic Field with contour lines

Looking at this, it’s easier to see where our dead zones are: The far corners of the image, the center of the STA, and also a few dots surprisingly close to the coils themselves.

For those of you who want to run the simulations yourself, you can download a copy of Vizimag (30 day free trial available) and download the model for the single cone and/or double cone STA design.

Bashar Explaining More About the Antenna

In the session titled “Take Action” from Oct. 12, 2008, Bashar talks with a fellow experimenter named Kevin who built a jig which you can use to wrap the copper wire/tube around.

You can download and listen to the full ~5 minute MP3 by clicking here.

Below I’ll share some relevant notes and quotes from the talk. Again, you can listen to the complete audio yourself by clicking the mp3 link above.

The coils need to be insulated. Kevin mentions using insulating paint for the insulation.

The STA is in some sense a capacitor and a transformer.

Bashar: “Once you initiate a certain kind of electrical current through it, you allow it to become vibrationally sensitive, because of its shape, to higher frequency energies which are then, in a sense, harmonically attracted to it and begin coursing along the same route. Once the higher frequency energies begin coursing along the same route, it sets up a self-reinforcing vibration that then can be amplified in a variety of ways and transformed, stepped down and transformed into electrical energy or various kind of energy that you can tap and use for your devices on your planet.”

Kevin: So you need to kick start it with an AC pulse. Then it will start resonating, driving itself, and then we can tap energy from it. Bashar: Yes.

Bashar: “This is the very beginning and very early experimentational form. This will improve and this will become more sophisticated, but first it is necessary to do the experimentations at this level in order to then see that you’re getting some effect which will then guide you to the next stage of refining it.”

Kevin: There are quite a number of inventors that have devices that are at the very beginning stages that show some “anomalous” energy as well.

Bashar: The “higher frequency energy” that it taps in to comes from what has been euphemistically referred to as the “template level reality” or “lower astral plane.”

Bashar: “Enjoy your experimentation!”

Video of me sparking the copper tube antenna

So the other day I sparked my copper tube based antenna and recorded the results.

First off, here’s the video of me sparking it:

To do a preliminary test, I went down to the power meters outside and checked how fast the discs in the center were spinning, corresponding to how much power was being used. Faster = more power. Slower = less power. The idea was that if the discs slowed down after the antenna started up, then all other things being equal, the antenna should be providing some power, reducing the power intake from the power company, and thus slowing down the spin rate of the discs at the power meters.

Here’s the video of the power meters before sparking the antenna:

and here’s the video of the power meters after sparking the antenna:

As you can see, the power meter on the right actually spins nearly twice as fast after sparking the antenna, opposite to the results I would have hoped for. Antenna connection aside, this speedup would normally happen because some device inside the house turned on at some point between the creation of the two videos and so more power was then being used.

It’d be nice to isolate the variables and take out things like random device turning on and off and messing with the results. Also some way of measuring power draw, electromagnetic radiation, and even the power bill would be better ways of measuring the effectiveness of this device. For now, this was the first measurement tool I had at hand. 🙂
