The “Amazing Breakthrough” Fraudcraft Of Aesop “Institute” And H2 Global LLC

Abstract.

Obtaining loans or donations by way of false claims and false pretenses is of course a very common type of swindle. Mark Goldes, the CEO of the sham “Aesop Institute,” has conducted this type of swindle for decades; and Walt Jenkins, the CEO of H2 Global LLC, is currently doing the same with his laughable Water-Fueled Bus Tour “Climate Change Solution” fundraising campaign on GoFundMe. In fact, Mark Goldes and Walt Jenkins have recently joined forces, and Goldes now appears to be serving as the chief promoter of Jenkins’ fraudulent GoFundMe campaign. Anyone who has donated any money to either Aesop Institute or H2 Global LLC should demand their money back, and also submit a complaint to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center, which may be done online at www.ic3.gov.

 

1.  Introduction.

Fraudcraft is the art of obtaining something of value – usually money – by falsely pretending to offer something of value in return.

We use the term fraudcraft-pack to denote the whole collection of deceptive claims, statements, pretenses, demonstration methods, and artifacts of every kind, which a con artist or swindler may develop as accessories in the course of his efforts to swindle people. A con artists’s fraudcraft-pack is like Felix the Cat’s magic bag – there’s just no telling what he can do with it. Highly successful swindlers, such as Randell Mills, may well spend millions of dollars creating wonderfully elaborate fraudcraft-packs. On the other end of the success spectrum, we have the likes of Mark Goldes, whose fraudcraft consists of little more than his tweets on Twitter.

In this article, we will first explain why Jenkins’ amazing claims regarding his ludicrous “Water-Fueled Engine” system are certainly false and fraudulent, and then we’ll discuss several equally ludicrous “Revolutionary Breakthrough” frauds by Mark Goldes.

 

2.  H2 Global LLC’s “Burnable Water” And “Water-Fueled Engine” Fraudcraft-Pack

On May 28, 2019, Walt Jenkins, the CEO of H2 Global LLC, posted a Fundraising Campaign on GoFundMe, entitled “Climate Change Solution,” with a stated goal of almost 300,000 dollars. Jenkins indicates that your donations will fund a cross-country “Water Fueled Bus Tour” using an RV powered entirely by a “new breakthrough clean-energy fuel” – which, we are told, is actually a new form of water, which Jenkins claims can be made from ordinary water – even seawater – in H2 Global LLC’s magic “Black Box.” As of 7/6/2019, four people have made donations to this campaign. They ought to demand their money back from GoFundMe, on the grounds that Jenkins’ claims are false and fraudulent – which they certainly are.

Jenkins started H2 Hogwash LLC – sorry, H2 Global LLC – in 2008, making the same silly claims he makes today. After eleven years, he still has offered precisely ZERO evidence to the world that he has ever created any new form of water. He has also provided no scientifically useful information at all about this “burnable water,” beyond a few vague claims, which amount to nothing more than pseudoscientific gibberish. Of course, it is laughable to imagine that Jenkins was able create this mysterious water with just a small amount of electric power, yet tens of millions of chemists during countless millions of experiments of every kind have somehow never happened to produce or detect it – even though Jenkins describes it as “very explosive!”

But let’s pretend, for a moment, that Jenkins really has created a new form of water, just as he says (which we don’t believe). We’re very sorry to mention it, but there’s still a big problem with his engine system. It’s known as the Conservation of Energy.

Jenkins tells us that his “burnable water” can take the place of gasoline. He also declares fervently that the combustion of this water in his engine does NOT involve electrolysis, and that most of the energy released during combustion does NOT come from burning hydrogen or oxygen. Now, we know that when gasoline is burned, energy is released by the replacement of high-energy CH bonds with low-energy CO bonds. But the “burnable water” has no carbon, and no CH bonds; and Jenkins tells us that most of his combustion energy does NOT come from burning hydrogen or oxygen. Therefore, most of the energy released in his water-fueled engine can only come from the difference in stored energy between ordinary water and his “burnable water.” But we are told that his magic “Black Box” can turn one form of water into the other with only a very small amount of electrical power. Therefore, the difference in energy between the two forms of water must be very small, compared to the very large amount of energy that would need to be released for the “burnable water” to take the place of gasoline.  So instead of respecting the Conservation of Energy, Jenkins is offering us a system in which a great amount of energy magically appears from nowhere.

It is somewhat surprising that even during eleven years, Jenkins could not come up with a name for his wonderful new form of water, which (he tells us) will surely save the world from climate change, and bring billions of dollars to H2 Global LLC. Well, Mr. Jenkins, we have a suggestion for you! We have a name for your “burnable water.” We suggest that you call it H2 Hogwash.

H2 Global LLC has actually listed Mark Goldes on their website as a member of their “Scientific Advisory Board” – along with Nikola Tesla, who died in 1943.

Would any honest company choose to publicly list, among their current Scientific Advisors, a famous inventor who died 76 years ago? – Of course not.

But listing Mark Goldes, Professional “Breakthrough” Swindler, as a Scientific Advisor is a thousand times more revealing, and more disturbing, than the silly Nikola Tesla name-dropping.

If the CEO of H2 Global, namely Walter Jenkins, sincerely believed his own claims regarding his make-believe water-fueled engine, then Mark Goldes would be the very last person in the world that he would ever want anything to do with. If you have a product that actually works as claimed, you don’t need a flimflam artist to help you promote it. Walter Jenkins may have sincerely believed in his engine concept when he started his company, eleven years ago; but when he recruited Mark Goldes as an “Advisor,” he made it very clear that he now knows very well what business he’s in. He knows he’s in the swindling business – and that’s why he chose to join forces with one of the most shameless con artists in America.

Mark Goldes is by far the most prolific and shameless “internet liar” we have ever encountered. The fact that H2 Global LLC has chosen to employ such a person as a prominent “Advisor” means that H2 Global deserves to be granted the very same level of credence as Mark Goldes himself – namely, ZERO. No one should trust the honesty of H2 Global LLC in a single word they say, to any person, at any time, on any subject whatsoever.

 

3.    Aesop “Institute” CEO’s Long Career In “Breakthrough” Fraud

3.1   Mark Goldes deceives and swindles gullible people by obtaining loans from them in a fraudulent manner, making use of false and empty pretenses that his so-called “Aesop Institute” is making “revolutionary breakthroughs” based on “astonishing new science.” In fact, “Aesop Institute” is simply an elaborate fraud – just like Goldes’ previous companies, Magnetic Power Inc and Chava Energy LLC.

Since Goldes has no “new science” and is certainly not making any “revolutionary breakthroughs,” he has no way to repay any loans except by obtaining new loans. If the loans were ever actually repaid, Goldes’ practice would be a Ponzi scheme. In the vast majority of cases, however, the loans are simply never repaid at all.

3.2    The professional charlatan Mark Goldes, starting in the mid-seventies, engaged for several years in the pretense that his company SunWind Ltd was developing a nearly production-ready, freeway-capable, wind-powered “windmobile,” based on the windmobile created by James Amick; and that therefore SunWind would be a wonderful investment opportunity.

After SunWind “dried up” in 1983, Goldes embarked on the long-running pretense that his company Room Temperature Superconductors Inc was developing room-temperature superconductors; and that therefore Room Temperature Superconductors Inc would be a wonderful investment opportunity. He continues the pretense that the company developed something useful, even to this day.

And then Goldes embarked on the pretense that his company Magnetic Power Inc was developing “NO FUEL ENGINES” based on “Virtual Photon Flux;” and then, on the pretense that MPI was developing horn-powered “NO FUEL ENGINES” based on the resonance of magnetized tuning-rods; and then, on the pretense that his and Hagen Ruff’s company Chava Energy LLC was developing water-fueled engines based on “collapsing hydrogen orbits” (which are ruled out by quantum physics); and then, on the pretense that his so-called “Aesop Institute” was developing strictly-ambient-heat-powered “NO FUEL ENGINES” (which are ruled out by the Second Law of Thermodynamics).

But of course, the laws of physics always make an exception for the make-believe pretenses of Mark Goldes.

Goldes’ 46-year career of “revolutionary breakthrough” pretense has nothing to do with science, but only with pseudoscience, pseudophysics, and relentless flimflam, in pursuit of loans and donations from gullible people who never mastered physics very well.

Mark Goldes’ “Aesop Institute” has engaged for many years in the very dishonest and unscrupulous practice of soliciting loans and donations under an endless series of false pretenses, that it is developing and even “prototyping” various “revolutionary breakthroughs,” such as “NO FUEL ENGINES” that run on ambient heat alone – or run on “Virtual Photon Flux” – or on “Collapsing Hydrogen Orbits” – or even on the acoustic energy of sound from a horn.

Aesop Institute’s make-believe strictly ambient heat engine is ruled out by the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This has been understood by physicists for at least 180 years. There is no “new science” that has ever determined such an engine to be possible.

Aesop Institute’s make-believe “Virtual Photon Flux” engine is based on the idea that accessible electric power “is everywhere present in unlimited quantities” – which we know to be false.

Aesop Institute’s make-believe “Collapsing Hydrogen Orbits” engine is based on Randell Mills’ theory of “hydrino” hydrogen, which every scientist knows to be false.

Aesop Institute’s make-believe horn-powered engine is based on the pretense that a magnetized tuning rod could somehow “multiply energy” – a ludicrous notion, which is obviously ruled out by the law of conservation of energy.

Aesop Institute’s very latest make-believe engine is a perpetual motion machine in the form of a self-powered air compressor, which proposes to use a turbine to compress air to spin the turbine to compress air to spin the turbine.

Aesop Institute has never offered the slightest shadow of evidence that it is actually developing or “prototyping” any of these make-believe physics-defying “revolutionary breakthroughs.” All it has ever offered are mere declarations that it is doing so – unsupported by any proof whatever, of any kind whatever.

There are no “revolutionary breakthroughs” to be found on Goldes’ fraudulent “Aesop Institute” website. There is only pseudoscience, relentless flimflam, and empty claims of engines that are ruled out by the laws of physics.

After founding Magnetic Power Inc in the mid-eighties, Mark Goldes and MPI soon  developed most of the fraudcraftings which would serve as Goldes’ offerings in fraudcraft for the next thirty years, not only at MPI, but also at Chava Energy LLC,  and at his so-called “Aesop Institute.” Goldes’ partnership with Hagen Ruff, the other Co-founder (as well as CEO) of Chava Energy LLC, gave the Goldes-MPI fraudcraft a new lease on life, and accordingly it may be most properly termed the “Goldes-Ruff Fraudcraft.” For the past five years or more, while serving as a Co-founder and a Chief Officer of Chava Energy LLC, Goldes used his chavaenergy.com email address as his Aesop Institute email address as well, at least until his very recent ejection from Chava Energy.  In practice, Goldes made continual use of Aesop Institute to bring investors to Chava Energy, which for five years has based its pretenses on nearly all the same fraudcraft used by Goldes at Aesop Institute. The common fraudcraft has included the same fraudcraftings of water-fueled “Fractional Hydrogen” engines, generators powered by Zero Point Energy, “Ultraconductor” wire, “Ultraconductor” energy storage systems, and strictly ambient heat engines – along with the same false claims that “prototypes” of all these concepts were being developed, and would soon provide wonderful alternatives to fossil fuels.

Mark Goldes’ skills as an “Amazing Breakthrough” con artist did not go unnoticed by Walt Jenkins, the CEO of H2 Global LLC, whose ludicrous “Water-Fueled Engine” fraudcraft is just as farcical as anything ever presented by Goldes. So it comes as no great surprise that Jenkins now lists Goldes as a “Scientific Advisor” on the very meager H2 Global website. Goldes’ immaculate record, of bringing precisely ZERO products to market during his entire 46-year career in “breakthrough” scams, will certainly not be altered by his association with H2 Global LLC.

 

4.  Take Your Choice Of Four More Great Fraudcraft-Packs from Aesop “Institute!”

In addition to promoting H2 Global LLC’s “Water-Fueled Engine” fraud, Mark Goldes’ “Aesop Institute” is currently promoting no less than four other Revolutionary Breakthrough frauds, of which you may take your choice! Each of the frauds serve as a basis for soliciting and obtaining loans and donations in a blatantly fraudulent manner, making use of elaborate “fraudcraft” – false pretenses, false statements, false claims and empty promises. And here they are:

*   The “No Fuel Piston Engine” Ambient Heat Engine

Mark Goldes’ “NO FUEL PISTON ENGINE” swindle is based on an utterly worthless and ludicrous pretended “engine” concept shamelessly presented by Kenneth M. Rauen, whom Goldes lists as the “Chief Scientist and CTO” of Aesop Institute.

*   The “Fuel-Free Turbine” Perpetual Motion Engine

Mark Goldes’ “FUEL-FREE TURBINE” swindle is based on a worthless and ludicrous pretended turbine engine concept described in a patent application submitted by Boris Kondrashov. The application was rejected, quite appropriately.

*   The “Fractional Hydrogen” Copycat “Hydrino” Engine

Mark Goldes’ “ECHO” or “Fractional Hydrogen” swindle is nothing more a than a shameless copy of the great “hydrino engine” fraud promoted by Randell Mills at Brilliant Light Power, Inc – formerly Black Light Power.

*   The “Ultraconductor” Room Temperature Superconductor

Mark Goldes’ “ULTRACONDUCTOR” swindle  in his “Ultraconductor” fraudcraft.

Now let us inspect these four packs of fraudcraft in greater detail.

 

5.   The “No Fuel Piston Engine” Ambient Heat Engine Fraudcraft

Mark Goldes’ “NO FUEL PISTON ENGINE” swindle consists of soliciting and obtaining loans and donations in a blatantly fraudulent manner, making use in particular of the elaborate set of false pretenses, false statements, false claims and empty promises to be found in his “No Fuel Piston Engine” fraudcraft, which includes a worthless and ludicrous pretended “engine” concept shamelessly presented by Kenneth M. Rauen.

Mark Goldes claims that “Patent pending desktop piston engines that will run 24/7 on the thermal energy in atmospheric heat are being prototyped.”

In fact, the worthless ambient heat engine concept at the center of Goldes’ flimflam is a certain utterly ludicrous exercise in silliness, produced by Kenneth Rauen, that does not have any “patent pending” and never will. It consists of nothing more than several cylinders containing pistons connected to a crankshaft, with various open channels between some of the cylinders. There is nothing to make the pistons move or the crankshaft turn. Rauen has written many pages of tedious nonsense attempting to argue that the engine would work. It certainly will not work, and Rauen certainly knows that it will not work, and so does Goldes.

Kenneth Rauen's Ambient Heat

At any given time and place, the atmosphere only provides a single heat reservoir at a single temperature. In order for a cyclic heat engine to do any work, it must be provided not merely with a single heat reservoir, but with two heat reservoirs, at different temperatures. This is an inescapable consequence of one of the most well-established principles in all of physics: the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

To people who have never studied thermodynamics, it might seem that nothing more should be needed to power a heat engine than a reservoir of heat. However, that is not so. In order to do any work, a cyclic heat engine must utilize not just one, but two heat reservoirs, at different temperatures. This has been understood at least since 1824, when Sadi Carnot presented an equation relating the maximum possible efficiency of a heat engine to the temperatures of the two reservoirs. When the two reservoirs are both at the same temperature, the maximum possible efficiency is zero percent: the engine can do no work at all.

Goldes falsely claims that “Two decades of physics research indicate not only that this [single-reservoir atmospheric heat engine] may be possible, but that there exist exploitable exceptions to the current interpretation of the Second Law of Thermodynamics.”

This false and baseless flimflam comes from the very same person who has actually spent the last two decades claiming year after year that his make-believe “room temperature superconductors” would be validated “next year,” that his make-believe “Virtual Photon Flux” engine would be validated “next year,” that his make-believe energy-multiplying horn-powered-tuning-rod “POWERGENIE” engine would be validated “next year,” and that his make-believe “Collapsing Hydrogen Orbits” “fractional hydrogen” engine would be validated “next year” – not to mention various other make-believe marvels. In fact, after a forty-year career in flimflam, Goldes has presented and validated a grand total of zero fulfillments of his endless claims regarding his make-believe “revolutionary breakthroughs.”

There is no “new science” in any of Goldes’ “revolutionary breakthroughs.” There is only pseudoscience and pretense – and nothing new, at all.

Mark Goldes’ proofless claims regarding his make-believe strictly ambient heat engine do not represent any new technology, or even a new pretense – they merely represent a rather old pretense.

“Before the establishment of the Second Law, many people who were interested in inventing a perpetual motion machine had tried to circumvent the restrictions of First Law of Thermodynamics by extracting the massive internal energy of the environment as the power of the machine. Such a machine is called a “perpetual motion machine of the second kind”. The second law declared the impossibility of such machines.”

“A perpetual motion machine of the second kind is a machine which spontaneously converts thermal energy into mechanical work. When the thermal energy is equivalent to the work done, this does not violate the law of conservation of energy. However it does violate the more subtle second law of thermodynamics (see also entropy). The signature of a perpetual motion machine of the second kind is that there is only one heat reservoir involved… This conversion of heat into useful work, without any side effect, is impossible, according to the second law of thermodynamics.”

Goldes’ make-believe strictly ambient heat engine would be a perpetual motion machine of the second kind, as defined above. Goldes is not developing any such engine; he is merely developing a pretense – as usual.

The Kelvin-Planck formulation of the Second Law of Thermodynamics may be stated as follows:

“No cyclic process driven simply by heat can accomplish the absorption of the heat from a reservoir and the conversion of such heat into work – without any other result (such as a transfer of heat to a cooler reservoir).”

Now, as you will see, the Clausius formulation of the Second Law may be stated with fewer words:

“No process is possible whose sole result is the transfer of heat from a cooler to a hotter body.”

In fact, we can show that the Kelvin-Planck formulation may be deduced from that of Clausius. In the words of Enrico Fermi:

“Suppose that Kelvin’s postulate were not valid. Then we could perform a transformation whose only final result would be to transform completely into work a definite amount of heat taken from a single source at the temperature t1. By means of friction we could then transform this work into heat again and with this heat raise the temperature of a given body, regardless of what its initial temperature, t2, may have been. In particular, we could take t2 to be higher than t1. Thus, the only final result of this process would be the transfer of heat from one body (the source at temperature t1) to another body at a higher temperature, t2. This would be a violation of the Clausius postulate.”

Can anyone make a teapot that boils water by absorbing heat from blocks of ice?

Max Planck, in his “Treatise On Thermodynamics,” explains how the Second Law of Thermodynamics “may be deduced from a single simple law of experience about which there is no doubt.” Here is the “single simple law of experience” he proposes:

“It is impossible to construct an engine which will work in a complete cycle, and produce no effect except the raising of a weight and the cooling of a heat-reservoir.”

This “law of experience” is very similar to a principle suggested by William Thomson (Lord Kelvin):

“It is impossible, by means of inanimate material agency, to derive mechanical effect from any portion of matter by cooling it below the temperature of the coldest of the surrounding objects.”

The “simple law of experience” offered by Planck is therefore commonly known as the “Kelvin-Planck statement” of the Second Law of Thermodynamics. But we see from Planck’s “Treatise” that Planck himself did not quite regard it as a statement of the Second Law, but rather as a “starting point” or postulate from which the Second Law may be deduced.

Here is Planck’s rendition of the Second Law itself:

“The second law of thermodynamics states that there exists in nature for each system of bodies a quantity, which by all changes of the system either remains constant (in reversible processes) or increases in value (in irreversible processes). This quantity is called, following Clausius, the entropy of the system.”

The Second Law of Thermodynamics rules out strictly ambient heat engines.

Expecting an ambient heat engine to do any work, with only one heat reservoir, is exactly equivalent to expecting a teapot to boil water by absorbing heat from a block of ice.

Both processes are ruled out by the very same law – the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

“It is impossible for any device operating on a cycle to produce net work from a single temperature reservoir; the production of net work requires flow of heat from a higher temperature reservoir to a colder reservoir.”

In a strictly ambient heat engine there are not two heat reservoirs at different temperatures; no reservoir would be available at any temperature other than the ambient temperature. Therefore the engine would have to DECREASE the total entropy – and therefore we know for certain that the engine will disappoint us. It will never be able to do any work.

Flow of heat from a block of ice to lukewarm water would also result in a DECREASE of the total entropy.

Once again: Expecting an ambient heat engine to do any work, with only one heat reservoir, is exactly equivalent to expecting a teapot to boil water by absorbing heat from a block of ice. Anyone who claims to be developing a “prototype” of such an engine is only developing a pretense, and nothing more.

For more information related to this swindle, see Section 14.1.

 

6.   The “Fuel-Free Turbine” Perpetual Motion Fraudcraft

Mark Goldes’ “FUEL-FREE TURBINE” swindle consists of soliciting and obtaining loans and donations in a blatantly fraudulent manner, making use in particular of the set of false pretenses, false statements, false claims and empty promises to be found in his “Fuel-Free Turbine” fraudcraft, which includes a worthless and ludicrous pretended turbine engine concept described in a patent application submitted by Boris Kondrashov in 2003. The application was rejected, quite appropriately.

In this swindle, Goldes declare that a “FUEL-FREE TURBINE invented by a Russian scientist runs on atmospheric pressure.”

But when we read the patent application, we find that actually the turbine does NOT run on atmospheric pressure – it requires compressed air. This is clearly indicated even in the article by Kondrashov posted by Goldes on his flimflam website. Kondrashov says:

“To create a sample of such an engine, you can use ready-made devices, such as a load-bearing element – a low-power turbine module turboshaft turbine engine, and to compress the air… any type of compressor…”

Kondrashov filed his patent application in 2003. No patent was awarded.

Mark Goldes assures us in his note prefacing Kondrashov’s article that “We understand the science behind this jet engine.” But since he incorrectly describes it as an engine powered by “atmospheric pressure” – which it certainly is not – in fact he shows that he doesn’t even understand that the engine requires a supply of compressed air in order to spin at all.

Although Kondrashov does pretend in some of his statements that the turbine will be powered by “atmospheric pressure,” in fact it is evident from his application that the proposed turbine is made to spin only by the use of compressed air.

In his patent application, Kondrashov states:

“To set the above engine in operation, it is necessary to create pressure of working medium (e.g. air) in pneumatic accumulator 18. The compressed air is fed through check valve 19 and/or 20.”

Thus, Kondrashov indicates that an external compressor must be used to fill the turbine’s compressed air tank before the turbine can be started. But he tries to pretend that once the turbine starts to spin, there will be no further reliance on the external compressor – the spinning turbine itself will compress the air that is making the turbine spin. So despite his own false description of the turbine as making use of “low-grade atmospheric energy,” what Kondrashov actually presents in his patent application is a perpetual motion machine in the form of a self-powered air compressor. This is probably the reason why no patent was awarded. It is exactly analogous to trying to use a generator to power a motor to spin the generator to power the motor to spin the generator. It doesn’t work.

The application was filed in 2003, and rejected by the US patent office. A link to the application may be found below in Section 14.3.

Let’s look at the application. Under “Claims 1″ we are told:

“…kinetic energy of the obtained joined jet mass is used for creating a moment of rotation on the power shaft, characterized in that the working medium is presented by external gaseous masses, which before being fed to the jet device for forming an active jet are compressed in a compressor to the calculated level of pressure sufficient for creating rarefaction in the adding device…”

Somewhere else Kondrashov says:

“To set the above engine in operation, it is necessary to create pressure of working medium (e.g. air) in pneumatic accumulator 18. The compressed air is fed through check valve 19 and/or 20. On the calculated pressure level being reached, valve 21 is switched in use, which provides a calculated duration of flowing of compressed air out of the jet nozzle with a preset periodicity.”

“…compressed gases instead of combustion products are used as the working medium…”

There are many other statements that make it plain that neither “atmospheric pressure” nor “atmospheric heat”  power the engine – despite Kondrashov’s claims, which are contradicted by his own description of the engine. In one section of the patent he mentions incorporating a heat pump, without ever describing or explaining what will power the heat pump. In other sections of the patent he seems to forget about the heat pump entirely.  With or without the heat pump, he is presenting the idea of a compressed-air powered air compressor which would compress its own air, once it got started. We are never going to see that happen.

 

7.   Goldes’ “Fractional Hydrogen” Copycat “Hydrino” Engine Fraudcraft

Mark Goldes’  make-believe “water-fueled engine” supposedly involving “Collapsing Hydrogen Orbits” is nothing more than copy-cat flimflam based on Randell Mills’ bogus theory of “Classical Quantum Mechanics” (CQM) and “hydrino” hydrogen.

2009: Goldes seeks investors with fraudulent claims that his latest company, Chava Energy, “has been developing enhanced theoretical and practical paths that lead towards commercialization of energy conversion systems that utilize hydrinos.”

Goldes has never stopped claiming to be “developing a Self Powered Internal Combustion Engine – SPICE(tm) powered by hydrinos.”

Here is what the physicist Andreas Rathke has to say about Mills’ theory of “Classical Quantum Mechanics,” on which both Mills’ “hydrinos” and Goldes’ “fractional hydrogen” are supposedly based:

“In this paper, we have considered the theoretical foundations of the hydrino hypothesis, both within the theoretical framework of CQM, in which hydrinos were originally suggested, and within standard quantum mechanics. We found that CQM is inconsistent and has several serious deficiencies. Amongst these are the failure to reproduce the energy levels of the excited states of the hydrogen atom, and the absence of Lorentz invariance. Most importantly, we found that CQM does not predict the existence of hydrino states! Also, standard quantum mechanics cannot encompass hydrino states, with the properties currently attributed to them. Hence there remains no theoretical support of the hydrino hypothesis.”

http://iopscience.iop.org/1367-2630/7/1/127/fulltext/

In other words, not only has Randell Mills’ theory of “Classical Quantum Mechanics” been shown beyond doubt to be false , but it does not even support Mills’ theory of “hydrino” hydrogen states, as Mills would have us believe. There are no “hydrino” states, or “Fractional Hydrogen” states as Goldes has called them. The whole idea is nothing more than a heap of flimflam, that a charlatan may use to swindle nitwits.

In fact, neither “AESOP Institute” not any of Goldes’ other companies have ever done any actual work in this direction, at all.  They have merely claimed  and pretended to be doing so – just as they have falsely claimed and pretended to be working on various other worthless concepts.

 

8. Goldes’ “Ultraconductor” Room Temperature Superconductor Fraudcraft

Mark Goldes’ “ULTRACONDUCTOR” swindle consists of soliciting and obtaining loans and donations in a blatantly fraudulent manner, making use in particular of the set of false pretenses, false statements, false claims and empty promises to be found in his “Ultraconductor” fraudcraft.

The great high points of Mark Goldes’ career in fraudcraft were the obtaining of four Small Business Innovative Research grants from the Unites States Air Force, which cost taxpayers roughly a half million dollars. In the fourteen years since the conclusion of the fourth project, Goldes’ companies have evidently made no further progress in this area, at all – but that has not stopped Goldes from pretending that Magnetic Power Inc, or Chava Energy LLC, or “Aesop Institute” will be making Revolutionary Breakthroughs involving “Ultraconductors” as soon as you give them your money.  In fact, MPI’s own reports on the Ultraconductor grant projects consist of a succession of rosy and wonderful claims and predictions which went entirely unfulfilled by following projects, and remain unfulfilled today.

It is important to understand that the “Ultraconductor” film was only ever claimed to be “ultraconductive” to current across the thin dimension of the film – and not along the extensive dimensions. Therefore a strip cut from the film could not function as an “ultraconductive” wire. But MPI’s great claim for years was that they would nonetheless somehow develop a way to to make “ultraconductive” wire. They never did so.  MPI asserted that they would develop a way make the thin “ultraconductive” film thicker – and never did so. MPI asserted that their enrichment method would become the key to making thicker film and wire – but the method never did so.  MPI asserted that their “Ultraconductor” film would surely prove wonderfully useful for making thermoelectric devices – but once again, the rosy claims went unfulfilled. MPI asserted that they would obtain “ultraconductivity” along the plane of the film, instead of merely across the thin dimension, by repositioning the supposedly “ultraconductive” channels. They never did so.

The USAF never “validated” Goldes’ so-called “Ultraconductors” at all, and the USAF never gave Goldes any procurement contract for any “Ultraconductors” at all. The four research grants that Goldes obtained from the USAF were a waste of taxpayer money which never resulted in the development of anything of any value. Goldes’ degree of honesty in the matter of the “Ultraconductor” grants is just the same as his degree of honesty regarding all of his other make-believe “breakthroughs.” It is zero. Zero honesty. Zero “breakthroughs.” Zero fulfilment of his endless empty claims – as usual.

Chava Energy’s “Ultraconductor” fraudcraft was fraudulent first of all because Chava Energy has never done any development work with the so-called “Ultraconductor” film and therefore has never “continued to develop” the film at all, even though they pretended otherwise for five years. Just as Goldes had done at MPI, Chava Energy misrepresented the true prospects of the “Ultraconductor” material, which had never been found or made useful for any purpose, despite the substantial research funding that MPI had received in the nineties.

Mark Goldes was ejected from Chava Energy LLC during the fall of 2014 by Chava Energy’s other co-founder, Hagen Ruff; and all the rosy fraudcraft regarding “Ultraconductors” and “Ultraconductor Magnetic Energy Storage” was suddenly removed from the Chava Energy website. Hagen Ruff had chosen to drop the fraudulent empty pretense of ongoing “Ultraconductor” development that he and Goldes had carried on at Chava Energy for five years – along with several other fraudulent empty pretenses.

But although the partnership ended, the fraud still continues – at Mark Goldes’ so-called “AESOP Institute,” where it is still one of Mark Goldes’ three favorite frauds – along with his pretended “NO FUEL PISTON ENGINE” and his equally worthless “FUEL-FREE TURBINE.”

The reports themselves show that the so-called “Ultraconductors” are not “equivalent” to superconductors, since they do not show zero electrical resistance. That is why Goldes had to invent the name “Ultraconductor” in the first place.

As co-founder and “Chief Marketing Research Officer” at Chava Energy LLC, Goldes carried on the very same pretense he now continues at AESOP Institute: that “Ultraconductor” development “is resuming.”  After Goldes was ejected from Chava Energy in July 2014, all mention of the “Ultraconductor” pretense was suddenly removed from the Chava Energy website. It was nothing but a pretense, since no work at all on “Ultraconductors” was ever done at Chava Energy. Ultraconductor “development” never resumed at Chava Energy during the five years Goldes pretended otherwise, and Ultraconductor development will not be resuming at Aesop Institute, either. It is only a pretense and nothing more – just as Goldes’ “Fractional Hydrogen” “ECHO” engine was only a pretense and nothing more; just as Goldes’ “POWERGENIE” generator was only a pretense and nothing more; just as Goldes’ “Virtual Photon Flux” generator was only a pretense and nothing more; just as Goldes’ “NO FUEL PISTON ENGINE” is only a pretense and nothing more; and just as Goldes’ “FUEL-FREE TURBINE” is only a pretense and nothing more.

There is no need to contact Mark Goldes to get the four SBIR grant reports written by Goldes’ company MPI. A link to the four reports can be found below in Section 14.4.

 

9.  Swindle Memory Lane

Several swindles offered in previous years by Mark Goldes’ so-called “AESOP Institute” seem to have played out, and he longer mentions them in the comment-advertisements for “AESOP Institute” that we have found him posting almost every day on Huffington Post. His comments no longer ever mention the wonderful “POWERGENIE” horn-powered tuning-rod engine which wouldn’t even need the gallon of water – it would be powered by sound energy from its own horn! (The tuning-rod would “multiply” the sound energy, don’t you see.) Nor do his comments any longer ever mention the “MagGen” “Virtual Photon Flux Generator,” or the amazing Ambient Temperature Thermionic Converter. Those swindles have played out, you see. But they they show the character of Mark Goldes very clearly – so let us inspect them in detail.

9.1.   The “POWERGENIE” Horn-Powered Tuning-Rod Generator Swindle

In appreciation of its entertainment value, let’s look at another example of Mark Goldes’ wonderful offerings in “revolutionary new technology:”

The amazing “POWERGENIE!”

One of the most laughable of Mark Goldes’ many pseudotypes is his “POWERGENIE” horn-powered generator. The brilliant idea of this revolutionary breakthrough is to blow a horn at a magnetized tuning rod, designed to resonate at the frequency of the horn, and then collect the electromotive energy produced by the vibrations of the rod.

We’re not making this up.

POWERGENIE tuning rod engine explained – from the patent:

[The device incorporates] “an energy transfer and multiplier element being constructed of a ferromagnetic substance… having a natural resonance, due to a physical structure whose dimensions are directly proportional to the wavelength of the resonance frequency…

“In this resonant condition, the rod material functions as a tuned waveguide, or longitudinal resonator, for acoustic energy…

“Ferrite rod 800 is driven to acoustic resonance at the second harmonic of its fundamental resonant frequency by acoustic horn 811…”

– But the patent doesn’t tell us who will volunteer to blow the horn at the rod all day. Perhaps it will come with an elephant.

Mark Goldes claimed in 2008 that this wonderful triumph of human genius would bring his company, Magnetic Power Inc, one billion dollars in annual revenue by 2012. Magnetic Power is now defunct, having never produced any “Magnetic Power Modules” – just as Goldes’ company called “Room Temperature Superconductors Inc” is also now defunct, having never produced any “room temperature superconductors.”

9.2.    The “Virtual Photon Flux” “MagGen” Generator Fraudcraft

The make-believe “Virtual Photon Flux” engine is merely another exercise in flimflam, which Goldes has evidently judged to be played out, since he hardly mentions it any more. For more information, please see section 14.7 below.

11.      Exploiting Concerns Over Climate Change.

 

12.   Summary.

12.1  H2 Global LLC’s “Water-Fueled Engine” Fraudcraft.

In order for Walter Jenkins’ amazing claims regarding his “water-fueled” engine system to be true, the Law of Conservation of Energy would have to be false.

Jenkins claims that his “black box” is able to convert ordinary water to “burnable water” by applying only a small amount of electrical energy; yet the “burnable water,” when burned in a combustion engine, will release a far greater amount of energy than it could have received in the Black Box. So, instead of Conservation of Energy, Jenkins is offering a system in which the total energy undergoes a dramatic increase. In effect, the Black Box will operate as an energy multiplier. A very small amount of applied electrical energy is magically converted into a very large amount of some sort of molecular energy. This would clearly violate the Conservation of Energy principle. Therefore Jenkins will certainly not be able to deliver the “water-fueled” engine system he has promised.

Since H2 Global LLC is actively seeking investments and donations on the basis of their claims, we find that H2 Global LLC is in fact engaged in investment fraud in precisely the following way:

  •  H2 Global falsely and fraudulently claims to have developed a process which, using only a small amount of electric power, is able to convert ordinary water into a new “burnable” and “very explosive” form of water which can usefully take the place of gasoline as a combustible fuel in a combustion engine.  H2 Global’s claims regarding this so-called “H2G” process are ruled out by the principle of Conservation of Energy.

 

12.2  “Aesop Institute’s” “NO FUEL PISTON ENGINE,” “FUEL-FREE TURBINE,” “Fractional Hydrogen,” and “ULTRACONDUCTOR” Fraudcraft.

Mark Goldes’ forty-year career of “revolutionary breakthrough” pretense has nothing to do with science, but only with pseudoscience, pseudophysics, and relentless flimflam, in pursuit of investments, loans and donations from gullible people who never mastered physics very well.

The relentless and pervasive dishonesty, fraudulence, and unscrupulousness, that characterized Mark Goldes’ use of his company Magnetic Power Inc for over twenty years prior to the founding of Chava Energy LLC, has also characterized Mark Goldes’ and Hagen Ruff’s use of Chava Energy LLC and Aesop Institute since 2009.

Mark Goldes’ skills as an “Amazing Breakthrough” con artist have not gone unnoticed by Walt Jenkins, the CEO of H2 Global LLC, whose ludicrous “Water-Fueled Engine” fraudcraft is just as farcical as anything ever presented by Goldes. So it comes as no great surprise that Jenkins now lists Goldes as a “Scientific Advisor” on the very meager H2 Global website. Goldes’ perfectly clean record, of bringing precisely ZERO products to market during his entire 43-year career in “breakthrough” scams, will certainly not be altered by his association with H2 Global.

Since Mark Goldes is actively seeking loans and donations on the basis of his claims, we find that Mark Goldes is engaged in fraud in precisely the following ways:

  •  Mark Goldes falsely and fraudulently claims that his Aesop “Institute” is developing a strictly ambient heat engine, called the “Rauen Engine,” which (he claims) could actually serve as a useful engine, even though it is explicitly ruled out as a useful engine concept by the Second Law of Thermodynamics.
  •  Mark Goldes falsely and fraudulently claims that his Aesop “Institute” is also developing a “Fuel-Free Turbine” engine based on a perpetual-motion machine concept by Boris Kondrashev, which the Patent Office properly rejected many years ago.
  •  Mark Goldes falsely and fraudulently claims that his Aesop “Institute” is also developing a “Fractional Hyfrogen” engine that will use water as a fuel, exactly like the make-believe “hydrino” engine of Randell Mills. (Since Mills’ patent application was finally rejected, there is nothing to stop any other charlatan from making use of Mills’ clever pseudoscience.)
  •  Mark Goldes falsely and fraudulently claims that his Aesop “Institute” is also developing “Room Temperature Superconductors,” which he calls “Ultraconductors,” even though his “Institute” is developing no such thing, and certainly never will. Superconductivity has yet to be observed at temperatures higher than minus 70 °C.

 

13.  Conclusion.

Using the internet to obtain loans, investments or donations  by making false and fraudulent claims is a federal crime. Anyone who has made loans or donations to Aesop “Institute” or H2 Global LLC should demand their money back, and also submit a complaint to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center, which may be done online at www.ic3.gov.

 

14.       Notes

14.1.    Notes On H2 Global LLC’s “Water-Fueled Engine” Fraudcraft.

For a very amateurish example of “Breakthrough” fraudcraft, take a look (below) at Walt Jenkins’ GoFundMe page for his “Water-Fueled Bus Tour” Climate Change Solution fundraising campaign:

https://www.gofundme.com/4dbxjw-climate-change-solution

If he’s actually going to use an RV, why does he call it a Bus Tour? Does the peerless genius who discovered burnable water not know the difference between an RV and a Bus? – But wait just a minute, there. Walt Jenkins may have developed a “Black Box” to convert the RV into a Bus, whenever he wants! We wouldn’t be surprised at all.

The rest of H2 Global’s very meager accessible fraudcraft may be found on their skimpy website at www.h2ge.com.

 

14.2.    Notes On Mark Goldes’ “No Fuel Piston Engine” Swindle

2008:  Mark Goldes Claims MPI’s “Patent Pending” Ambient Heat Engine Has Already Powered A Car For 4800 Miles; Claims MPI Will Earn One Billion Dollars Annually By 2012

In his “Executive Summary” for MPI of June 2, 2008, Goldes states:

“The company is now involved with a revolutionary, patent pending, technology, which converts ambient heat into electricity. This non-magnetic breakthrough has the potential to go to production in the near future.  The system has proven capability to recharge batteries from heat extracted from the air; an alternative to the need to plug-in…

“Prototypes of the non-magnetic [ambient heat engine] system have been in operation for more that one year and successfully run an electric car for more than 4,800 miles with no need to plug-in.”

In the same “Executive Summary” for MPI,  Goldes claims that MPI’s array of imaginary engines will earn the company one billion dollars annually by 2012:

“Revenues from licenses and Joint Ventures are conservatively projected to exceed $1 billion annually by 2012.

“2008:  $25 million;  2009:  $100 million;  2010:  $300 million;  2011:  $600 million,  2012: $1 billion.

14.5    Notes On Goldes’ “POWERGENIE” or “Genie” Swindle.

2007:  Mark Goldes Claims He Will Demonstrate His Imaginary One-Kilowatt Horn-Powered Tuning-Rod “GENIE” Engine (aka “POWERGENIE”) Within One Year; Hundred-Kilowatt “GENIE” Might Take Two Years

“A revolutionary breakthrough by Magnetic Power Inc., called GENIE™ (Generating Electricity by Nondestructive Interference of Energy) will make possible the elimination of the need for batteries of every variety. GENIE generators are expected to replace the need to plug-in a plug-in hybrid. 2 kW is all the power that can be taken from a typical wall socket. A pair of 1 kW GENIE generators are expected to demonstrate a compact, inexpensive, capability to end the need to plug-in, prior to the end of 2008.

“If the development of GENIE generators is put on a 24/7 footing, it may be possible to provide 100 kW systems that will fit in the space of a typical gas tank, on a prototype basis in perhaps two years.”

http://outraged.chattablogs.com/archives/064832.html

– Goldes never mentions that the “GENIE” was actually to be powered by a horn.

14.7    Notes On Goldes’ “Virtual Photon Flux” “MagGen” Generator Fraudcraft

2005:  Mark Goldes Claims His Flimflam-Powered “Virtual Photon Flux” Magnetic Power Modules Will Earn MPI (His Now-Defunct Company) 225 Million Dollars By 2010

For over twenty years, beginning in 1987, Mark Goldes’ company “Magnetic Power Inc” (MPI) declared year after year that prototypes of its current pretended “revolutionary breakthroughs” would be presented for validation “next year.” Not a single one of these countless claims were ever fulfilled before the worthless company was finally disbanded.

Here is an excerpt from a typical example of a fraudulent “Executive Summary” from MPI, falsely pretending to have already created a working generator powered by “Virtual Photon Flux:”

Executive Summary [November 14,  2005]

“MPI’s mission is to supply the world with clean, abundant, and inexpensive electricity.

“The company is developing technology it calls Magnetic Power Modules(TM). Based upon breakthrough discoveries in MPI’s labs, Magnetic Power Modules are being designed that operate continuously, without fuel, extracting electricity by converting abundant, renewable, Virtual Photon Flux (VPF), an energy source that exists everywhere in the universe. The process will create no pollution. The cost of electricity is estimated to be less than 1 cent/Kwh, significantly less than any competing form of power generation today or in the foreseeable future.

“Magnetic Power Modules will be scaled to a wide range of applications. They appear suitable for the relatively small power needs of consumer devices up through the massive needs of power generation plants.

“Revenues from licenses of Magnetic Power Modules are conservatively projected to exceed $200 million annually by 2009:

“2006: $10 million;   2007: $25 million;   2008: $75 million;   2009: $225 million”

“Following the VPF research in private laboratories around the world, and based on recent breakthroughs in MPI laboratories, prototypes are currently being built that the Company expects will soon receive external validation. The first in a substantial series of patent applications was filed in January, 2005. A plug-in hybrid car may be modified, to become a prototype powered by VPF for local driving, during 2006.

“The commercial potential of Magnetic Power Modules is huge, with applications throughout the roughly $1.8 trillion worldwide market for energy. The Company forecasts rapidly growing revenues and profits, with revenues beginning in 2006…

“Revenues from licenses of Magnetic Power Modules are conservatively projected to exceed $200 million annually by 2009:

“2006: $10 million;  2007: $25 million;   2008: $75 million;   2009: $225 million

Amazing Perpetual Swindling Machine: …… Mark Goldes’ Fraudulent “AESOP Institute”

Abstract.

For many years, the professional con artist and charlatan Mark Goldes has relentlessly targeted the readers of Huffington Post and many other sites by posting thousands of spam comments advertising his fraudulent so-called “AESOP Institute.” He obtains loans from gullible people by falsely pretending that his non-existent make-believe “breakthoughs” could solve the problem of climate change. The loans are never repaid.

Goldes’ sham “AESOP Institute” has been his instrument to defraud and swindle people with false and empty claims of make-believe “breakthroughs” for many years. Mark Goldes has no “out-of-the-box new science” or “revolutionary technology,” and is not “prototyping” anything at all – all he has is the same old fraudcraft he’s been deceiving people with for decades – first at MPI, and then at Chava Energy LLC and his so-called “AESOP Institute.” He does not have any “breakthrough technologies” or any engine that could run on the single heat reservoir of ambient atmospheric heat. Every heat engine requires two heat reservoirs at different temperatures in order to do any work. That is why Goldes’ pretended “fuel-free piston engine” concept is not worth a nickel, as he knows very well. He has no “fuel-free engine” that could work at all. During his 46-year career in fraudcraft Goldes has never produced a single “proof of concept” for a single one of his countless fraudulent “concepts.” He has deceived and defrauded gullible people for decades with his endless empty claims of make-believe “breakthroughs,” by persuading them to give him loans, which he never repays.

Mark Goldes’ so-called “AESOP Institute” is merely the latest elaborate fraud, in a long series of elaborate frauds operated by Goldes over the past forty years.  Having abandoned several worn-out packs of fraudcraft used in previous years – such as his make-believe water-fueled “SPICE” engine, his  “Virtual Photon Flux” generator, and his ludicrous horn-powered “POWERGENIE” generator – Goldes now concentrates his swindling efforts on just three remaining swindles: his “NO FUEL PISTON ENGINE” swindle, his “FUEL-FREE TURBINE” swindle, and his “ULTRACONDUCTOR” swindle. Although the three swindles make use of three different packs of fraudcraft,  they all consist in soliciting and obtaining loans and donations by means of false and fraudulent claims and pretenses.

Mark Goldes’ skills as an Revolutionary Breakthrough con artist did not go unnoticed by Walt Jenkins, the CEO of H2 Global LLC, whose ludicrous “Water-Fueled Engine” fraudcraft is just as farcical as anything ever presented by Goldes. So Jenkins has recently made Goldes the Chief Promoter of Jenkins’ fraudulent Water-Fueled Bus Tour “Climate Change Solution” fundraising campaign on GoFundMe.

Anyone who has donated any money to either Aesop Institute or H2 Global LLC should demand their money back, and also submit a complaint to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center, which may be done online at www.ic3.gov.

 

1.    Introduction.

1.1   Mark Goldes deceives and swindles gullible people by obtaining loans from them in a fraudulent manner, making use of false and empty pretenses that his so-called “Aesop Institute” is making “revolutionary breakthroughs” based on “astonishing new science.” In fact, “Aesop Institute” is simply an elaborate fraud – just like Goldes’ previous companies, Magnetic Power Inc and Chava Energy LLC.

Since Goldes has no “new science” and is certainly not making any “revolutionary breakthroughs,” he has no way to repay any loans except by obtaining new loans. If the loans were ever actually repaid, Goldes’ practice would be a Ponzi scheme. In the vast majority of cases, however, the loans are simply never repaid at all.

1.2    The professional charlatan Mark Goldes, starting in the mid-seventies, engaged for several years in the pretense that his company SunWind Ltd was developing a nearly production-ready, freeway-capable, wind-powered “windmobile,” based on the windmobile created by James Amick; and that therefore SunWind would be a wonderful investment opportunity.

After SunWind “dried up” in 1983, Goldes embarked on the long-running pretense that his company Room Temperature Superconductors Inc was developing room-temperature superconductors; and that therefore Room Temperature Superconductors Inc would be a wonderful investment opportunity. He continues the pretense that the company developed something useful, even to this day.

And then Goldes embarked on the pretense that his company Magnetic Power Inc was developing “NO FUEL ENGINES” based on “Virtual Photon Flux;” and then, on the pretense that MPI was developing horn-powered “NO FUEL ENGINES” based on the resonance of magnetized tuning-rods; and then, on the pretense that his and Hagen Ruff’s company Chava Energy LLC was developing water-fueled engines based on “collapsing hydrogen orbits” (which are ruled out by quantum physics); and then, on the pretense that his so-called “Aesop Institute” was developing strictly-ambient-heat-powered “NO FUEL ENGINES” (which are ruled out by the Second Law of Thermodynamics).

But of course, the laws of physics always make an exception for the make-believe pretenses of Mark Goldes.

Goldes’ forty-year career of “revolutionary breakthrough” pretense has nothing to do with science, but only with pseudoscience, pseudophysics, and relentless flimflam, in pursuit of loans and donations from gullible people who never mastered physics very well.

Mark Goldes’ “Aesop Institute” has engaged for many years in the very dishonest and unscrupulous practice of soliciting loans and donations under an endless series of false pretenses, that it is developing and even “prototyping” various “revolutionary breakthroughs,” such as “NO FUEL ENGINES” that run on ambient heat alone – or run on “Virtual Photon Flux” – or on “Collapsing Hydrogen Orbits” – or even on the acoustic energy of sound from a horn.

Aesop Institute’s make-believe strictly ambient heat engine is ruled out by the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This has been understood by physicists for at least 180 years. There is no “new science” that has ever determined such an engine to be possible.

Aesop Institute’s make-believe “Virtual Photon Flux” engine is based on the idea that accessible electric power “is everywhere present in unlimited quantities” – which we know to be false.

Aesop Institute’s make-believe “Collapsing Hydrogen Orbits” engine is based on Randell Mills’ theory of “hydrino” hydrogen, which every scientist knows to be false.

Aesop Institute’s make-believe horn-powered engine is based on the pretense that a magnetized tuning rod could somehow “multiply energy” – a ludicrous notion, which is obviously ruled out by the law of conservation of energy.

Aesop Institute’s very latest make-believe engine is a perpetual motion machine in the form of a self-powered air compressor, which proposes to use a turbine to compress air to spin the turbine to compress air to spin the turbine.

Aesop Institute has never offered the slightest shadow of evidence that it is actually developing or “prototyping” any of these make-believe physics-defying “revolutionary breakthroughs.” All it has ever offered are mere declarations that it is doing so – unsupported by any proof whatever, of any kind whatever.

There are no “revolutionary breakthroughs” to be found on Goldes’ fraudulent “Aesop Institute” website. There is only pseudoscience, relentless flimflam, and empty claims of engines that are ruled out by the laws of physics.

After founding Magnetic Power Inc in the mid-eighties, Mark Goldes and MPI soon  developed most of the fraudcraftings which would serve as Goldes’ offerings in fraudcraft for the next thirty years, not only at MPI, but also at Chava Energy LLC,  and at his so-called “Aesop Institute.” Goldes’ partnership with Hagen Ruff, the other Co-founder (as well as CEO) of Chava Energy LLC, gave the Goldes-MPI fraudcraft a new lease on life, and accordingly it may be most properly termed the “Goldes-Ruff Fraudcraft.” For the past five years or more, while serving as a Co-founder and a Chief Officer of Chava Energy LLC, Goldes used his chavaenergy.com email address as his Aesop Institute email address as well, at least until his very recent ejection from Chava Energy.  In practice, Goldes made continual use of Aesop Institute to bring investors to Chava Energy, which for five years has based its pretenses on nearly all the same fraudcraft used by Goldes at Aesop Institute. The common fraudcraft has included the same fraudcraftings of water-fueled “Fractional Hydrogen” engines, generators powered by Zero Point Energy, “Ultraconductor” wire, “Ultraconductor” energy storage systems, and strictly ambient heat engines – along with the same false claims that “prototypes” of all these concepts were being developed, and would soon provide wonderful alternatives to fossil fuels.

1.3   Recently, after peddling the same old “NO FUEL PISTON ENGINE,” “FUEL-FREE TURBINE,” and “ULTRACONDUCTOR” scams for many years,  Goldes added a whole new scam to his line-up, by becoming Chief Swindle Promoter at Walt Jenkins’ upscale swindling corporation, H2 HOGWASH LLC – sorry, we meant to say H2 GLOBAL LLC. (But HOGWASH is their specialty, you see; they have even developed a machine to produce it!) In fact, Jenkins’ flagship scam – his ludicrous “Water-Fueled Engine” system – might even be Goldes’ favorite swindle at the moment. So, let’s take Walt Jenkins’ “Water-Fueled Engine” system (a.k.a. the Hogwash-Fueled Engine System) as the first one to discuss.

2.  “Give Me Money, And Be Part Of Hogwash History!” ALL ABOARD The First HOGWASH-FUELED RV!

On May 28, 2019, Walt Jenkins, the CEO of H2 Global LCC, posted a Fundraising Campaign on GoFundMe, entitled “Climate Change Solution,” with a stated goal of almost 300,000 dollars. Jenkins indicates that your donations will fund a cross-country “Water Bus Tour” using an RV powered entirely by a “new breakthrough clean-energy fuel” – which, we are told, is actually a new form of water, which Jenkins claims can be made from ordinary water – even seawater – in H2 Global LLC’s magic “Black Box.” As of 7/6/2019, four people have made donations to this campaign. They ought to demand their money back from GoFundMe, on the grounds that Jenkins’ claims are false and fraudulent – which they certainly are.

Jenkins started H2 Hogwash – sorry, H2 Global – in 2008, making the same silly claims he makes today. After eleven years, he still has offered precisely ZERO evidence to the world that he has ever created any new form of water. He has also provided no scientifically useful information at all about this “burnable water,” beyond a few vague claims, which amount to nothing more than pseudoscientific gibberish. Of course, it is laughable to imagine that Jenkins was able create this mysterious water with just a small amount of electric power, yet tens of millions of chemists during countless millions of experiments of every kind have somehow never happened to produce or detect it – even though Jenkins describes it as “very explosive!”

But let’s pretend, for a moment, that Jenkins really has created a new form of water, just as he says. We’re very sorry to mention it, but there’s still a big problem with his engine system. It’s known as the Conservation of Energy.

Jenkins tells us that his “burnable water” can take the place of gasoline. He also declares fervently that the combustion of this water in his engine does NOT involve electrolysis, and that most of the energy released during combustion does NOT come from burning hydrogen or oxygen. Now, we know that when gasoline is burned, energy is released by the replacement of high-energy CH bonds with low-energy CO bonds. But the “burnable water” has no carbon, and no CH bonds; and Jenkins tells us that most of his combustion energy does NOT come from burning hydrogen or oxygen. Therefore, most of the energy released in his water-fueled engine can only come from the difference in stored energy between ordinary water and his “burnable water.” But we are told that his magic “Black Box” can turn one form of water into the other with only a very small amount of electrical power. Therefore, the difference in energy between the two forms of water must be very small, compared to the very large amount of energy that would need to be released for the “burnable water” to take the place of gasoline.  So instead of respecting the Conservation of Energy, Jenkins is offering us a system in which a great amount of energy magically appears from nowhere.

It is somewhat surprising that even during eleven years, Jenkins could not come up with a name for his wonderful new form of water, which (he tells us) will surely save the world from climate change, and bring billions of dollars to H2 Global LLC. Well, Mr. Jenkins, we have a suggestion for you! We have a name for your “burnable water.” We suggest that you call it H2 Hogwash.

Anyone who has donated to Jenkins’ fraudulent “Climate Change Solution” fundraising campaign on GoFundMe should demand their money back from GoFundMe,

[This Section still under construction, as of 7/2/2019 – please check back later!]

3.  Three More Swindles To Choose From!

In addition to Walt Jenkins’ Hogwash-Fueled Engine System, Mark Goldes is currently offering, at his Aesop “Institute,” no less than three other swindles, of which you may take your choice!

And here they are:

*   The “No Fuel Piston Engine” Ambient Heat Engine Swindle

Mark Goldes’ “NO FUEL PISTON ENGINE” swindle consists of soliciting and obtaining loans and donations in a blatantly fraudulent manner, making use in particular of the elaborate set of false pretenses, false statements, false claims and empty promises to be found in his “No Fuel Piston Engine” fraudcraft, which includes a worthless and ludicrous pretended “engine” concept shamelessly presented by Kenneth M. Rauen.

*   The “Fuel-Free Turbine” Perpetual Motion Swindle

Mark Goldes’ “FUEL-FREE TURBINE” swindle consists of soliciting and obtaining loans and donations in a blatantly fraudulent manner, making use in particular of the set of false pretenses, false statements, false claims and empty promises to be found in his “Fuel-Free Turbine” fraudcraft, which includes a worthless and ludicrous pretended turbine engine concept described in a patent application submitted by Boris Kondrashov. The application was rejected, quite appropriately.

*   The “Ultraconductor” Room Temperature Superconductor Swindle

Mark Goldes’ “ULTRACONDUCTOR” swindle consists of soliciting and obtaining loans and donations in a blatantly fraudulent manner, making use in particular of the set of false pretenses, false statements, false claims and empty promises to be found in his “Ultraconductor” fraudcraft.

Now let us inspect these three swindles in greater detail.

4.   The “No Fuel Piston Engine” Ambient Heat Engine Swindle

Mark Goldes’ “NO FUEL PISTON ENGINE” swindle consists of soliciting and obtaining loans and donations in a blatantly fraudulent manner, making use in particular of the elaborate set of false pretenses, false statements, false claims and empty promises to be found in his “No Fuel Piston Engine” fraudcraft, which includes a worthless and ludicrous pretended “engine” concept shamelessly presented by Kenneth M. Rauen.

Mark Goldes claims that “Patent pending desktop piston engines that will run 24/7 on the thermal energy in atmospheric heat are being prototyped.”

In fact, the worthless ambient heat engine concept at the center of Goldes’ flimflam is a certain utterly ludicrous exercise in silliness, produced by Kenneth Rauen, that does not have any “patent pending” and never will. It consists of nothing more than several cylinders containing pistons connected to a crankshaft, with various open channels between some of the cylinders. There is nothing to make the pistons move or the crankshaft turn. Rauen has written many pages of tedious nonsense attempting to argue that the engine would work. It certainly will not work, and Rauen certainly knows that it will not work, and so does Goldes.

Kenneth Rauen's Ambient Heat

At any given time and place, the atmosphere only provides a single heat reservoir at a single temperature. In order for a cyclic heat engine to do any work, it must be provided not merely with a single heat reservoir, but with two heat reservoirs, at different temperatures. This is an inescapable consequence of one of the most well-established principles in all of physics: the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

To people who have never studied thermodynamics, it might seem that nothing more should be needed to power a heat engine than a reservoir of heat. However, that is not so. In order to do any work, a cyclic heat engine must utilize not just one, but two heat reservoirs, at different temperatures. This has been understood at least since 1824, when Sadi Carnot presented an equation relating the maximum possible efficiency of a heat engine to the temperatures of the two reservoirs. When the two reservoirs are both at the same temperature, the maximum possible efficiency is zero percent: the engine can do no work at all.

Goldes falsely claims that “Two decades of physics research indicate not only that this [single-reservoir atmospheric heat engine] may be possible, but that there exist exploitable exceptions to the current interpretation of the Second Law of Thermodynamics.”

This false and baseless flimflam comes from the very same person who has actually spent the last two decades claiming year after year that his make-believe “room temperature superconductors” would be validated “next year,” that his make-believe “Virtual Photon Flux” engine would be validated “next year,” that his make-believe energy-multiplying horn-powered-tuning-rod “POWERGENIE” engine would be validated “next year,” and that his make-believe “Collapsing Hydrogen Orbits” “fractional hydrogen” engine would be validated “next year” – not to mention various other make-believe marvels. In fact, after a forty-year career in flimflam, Goldes has presented and validated a grand total of zero fulfillments of his endless claims regarding his make-believe “revolutionary breakthroughs.”

There is no “new science” in any of Goldes’ “revolutionary breakthroughs.” There is only pseudoscience and pretense – and nothing new, at all.

Mark Goldes’ proofless claims regarding his make-believe strictly ambient heat engine do not represent any new technology, or even a new pretense – they merely represent a rather old pretense.

“Before the establishment of the Second Law, many people who were interested in inventing a perpetual motion machine had tried to circumvent the restrictions of First Law of Thermodynamics by extracting the massive internal energy of the environment as the power of the machine. Such a machine is called a “perpetual motion machine of the second kind”. The second law declared the impossibility of such machines.”

“A perpetual motion machine of the second kind is a machine which spontaneously converts thermal energy into mechanical work. When the thermal energy is equivalent to the work done, this does not violate the law of conservation of energy. However it does violate the more subtle second law of thermodynamics (see also entropy). The signature of a perpetual motion machine of the second kind is that there is only one heat reservoir involved… This conversion of heat into useful work, without any side effect, is impossible, according to the second law of thermodynamics.”

Goldes’ make-believe strictly ambient heat engine would be a perpetual motion machine of the second kind, as defined above. Goldes is not developing any such engine; he is merely developing a pretense – as usual.

The Kelvin-Planck formulation of the Second Law of Thermodynamics may be stated as follows:

“No cyclic process driven simply by heat can accomplish the absorption of the heat from a reservoir and the conversion of such heat into work – without any other result (such as a transfer of heat to a cooler reservoir).”

Now, as you will see, the Clausius formulation of the Second Law may be stated with fewer words:

“No process is possible whose sole result is the transfer of heat from a cooler to a hotter body.”

In fact, we can show that the Kelvin-Planck formulation may be deduced from that of Clausius. In the words of Enrico Fermi:

“Suppose that Kelvin’s postulate were not valid. Then we could perform a transformation whose only final result would be to transform completely into work a definite amount of heat taken from a single source at the temperature t1. By means of friction we could then transform this work into heat again and with this heat raise the temperature of a given body, regardless of what its initial temperature, t2, may have been. In particular, we could take t2 to be higher than t1. Thus, the only final result of this process would be the transfer of heat from one body (the source at temperature t1) to another body at a higher temperature, t2. This would be a violation of the Clausius postulate.”

Can anyone make a teapot that boils water by absorbing heat from blocks of ice?

Max Planck, in his “Treatise On Thermodynamics,” explains how the Second Law of Thermodynamics “may be deduced from a single simple law of experience about which there is no doubt.” Here is the “single simple law of experience” he proposes:

“It is impossible to construct an engine which will work in a complete cycle, and produce no effect except the raising of a weight and the cooling of a heat-reservoir.”

This “law of experience” is very similar to a principle suggested by William Thomson (Lord Kelvin):

“It is impossible, by means of inanimate material agency, to derive mechanical effect from any portion of matter by cooling it below the temperature of the coldest of the surrounding objects.”

The “simple law of experience” offered by Planck is therefore commonly known as the “Kelvin-Planck statement” of the Second Law of Thermodynamics. But we see from Planck’s “Treatise” that Planck himself did not quite regard it as a statement of the Second Law, but rather as a “starting point” or postulate from which the Second Law may be deduced.

Here is Planck’s rendition of the Second Law itself:

“The second law of thermodynamics states that there exists in nature for each system of bodies a quantity, which by all changes of the system either remains constant (in reversible processes) or increases in value (in irreversible processes). This quantity is called, following Clausius, the entropy of the system.”

The Second Law of Thermodynamics rules out strictly ambient heat engines.

Expecting an ambient heat engine to do any work, with only one heat reservoir, is exactly equivalent to expecting a teapot to boil water by absorbing heat from a block of ice.

Both processes are ruled out by the very same law – the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

“It is impossible for any device operating on a cycle to produce net work from a single temperature reservoir; the production of net work requires flow of heat from a higher temperature reservoir to a colder reservoir.”

In a strictly ambient heat engine there are not two heat reservoirs at different temperatures; no reservoir would be available at any temperature other than the ambient temperature. Therefore the engine would have to DECREASE the total entropy – and therefore we know for certain that the engine will disappoint us. It will never be able to do any work.

Flow of heat from a block of ice to lukewarm water would also result in a DECREASE of the total entropy.

Once again: Expecting an ambient heat engine to do any work, with only one heat reservoir, is exactly equivalent to expecting a teapot to boil water by absorbing heat from a block of ice. Anyone who claims to be developing a “prototype” of such an engine is only developing a pretense, and nothing more.

5.   The “Fuel-Free Turbine” Perpetual Motion Swindle

Mark Goldes’ “FUEL-FREE TURBINE” swindle consists of soliciting and obtaining loans and donations in a blatantly fraudulent manner, making use in particular of the set of false pretenses, false statements, false claims and empty promises to be found in his “Fuel-Free Turbine” fraudcraft, which includes a worthless and ludicrous pretended turbine engine concept described in a patent application submitted by Boris Kondrashov in 2003. The application was rejected, quite appropriately.

In this swindle, Goldes declare that a “FUEL-FREE TURBINE invented by a Russian scientist runs on atmospheric pressure.”

But when we read the patent application, we find that actually the turbine does NOT run on atmospheric pressure – it requires compressed air. This is clearly indicated even in the article by Kondrashov posted by Goldes on his flimflam website. Kondrashov says:

“To create a sample of such an engine, you can use ready-made devices, such as a load-bearing element – a low-power turbine module turboshaft turbine engine, and to compress the air… any type of compressor…”

Kondrashov filed his patent application in 2003. No patent was awarded.

Mark Goldes assures us in his note prefacing Kondrashov’s article that “We understand the science behind this jet engine.” But since he incorrectly describes it as an engine powered by “atmospheric pressure” – which it certainly is not – in fact he shows that he doesn’t even understand that the engine requires a supply of compressed air in order to spin at all.

Although Kondrashov does pretend in some of his statements that the turbine will be powered by “atmospheric pressure,” in fact it is evident from his application that the proposed turbine is made to spin only by the use of compressed air.

In his patent application, Kondrashov states:

“To set the above engine in operation, it is necessary to create pressure of working medium (e.g. air) in pneumatic accumulator 18. The compressed air is fed through check valve 19 and/or 20.”

Thus, Kondrashov indicates that an external compressor must be used to fill the turbine’s compressed air tank before the turbine can be started. But he tries to pretend that once the turbine starts to spin, there will be no further reliance on the external compressor – the spinning turbine itself will compress the air that is making the turbine spin. So despite his own false description of the turbine as making use of “low-grade atmospheric energy,” what Kondrashov actually presents in his patent application is a perpetual motion machine in the form of a self-powered air compressor. This is probably the reason why no patent was awarded. It is exactly analogous to trying to use a generator to power a motor to spin the generator to power the motor to spin the generator. It doesn’t work.

The application was filed in 2003, and rejected by the US patent office. A link to the application may be found below in Section 12.2   Notes On Goldes’ “Fuel-Free Turbine” Swindle.

Let’s look at the application. Under “Claims 1″ we are told:

“…kinetic energy of the obtained joined jet mass is used for creating a moment of rotation on the power shaft, characterized in that the working medium is presented by external gaseous masses, which before being fed to the jet device for forming an active jet are compressed in a compressor to the calculated level of pressure sufficient for creating rarefaction in the adding device…”

Somewhere else Kondrashov says:

“To set the above engine in operation, it is necessary to create pressure of working medium (e.g. air) in pneumatic accumulator 18. The compressed air is fed through check valve 19 and/or 20. On the calculated pressure level being reached, valve 21 is switched in use, which provides a calculated duration of flowing of compressed air out of the jet nozzle with a preset periodicity.”

“…compressed gases instead of combustion products are used as the working medium…”

There are many other statements that make it plain that neither “atmospheric pressure” nor “atmospheric heat”  power the engine – despite Kondrashov’s claims, which are contradicted by his own description of the engine. In one section of the patent he mentions incorporating a heat pump, without ever describing or explaining what will power the heat pump. In other sections of the patent he seems to forget about the heat pump entirely.  With or without the heat pump, he is presenting the idea of a compressed-air powered air compressor which would compress its own air, once it got started. We are never going to see that happen.

6.   The “Ultraconductor” Room Temperature Superconductor Swindle

Mark Goldes’ “ULTRACONDUCTOR” swindle consists of soliciting and obtaining loans and donations in a blatantly fraudulent manner, making use in particular of the set of false pretenses, false statements, false claims and empty promises to be found in his “Ultraconductor” fraudcraft.

The great high points of Mark Goldes’ career in fraudcraft were the obtaining of four Small Business Innovative Research grants from the Unites States Air Force, which cost taxpayers roughly a half million dollars. In the fourteen years since the conclusion of the fourth project, Goldes’ companies have evidently made no further progress in this area, at all – but that has not stopped Goldes from pretending that Magnetic Power Inc, or Chava Energy LLC, or “Aesop Institute” will be making Revolutionary Breakthroughs involving “Ultraconductors” as soon as you give them your money.  In fact, MPI’s own reports on the Ultraconductor grant projects consist of a succession of rosy and wonderful claims and predictions which went entirely unfulfilled by following projects, and remain unfulfilled today.

It is important to understand that the “Ultraconductor” film was only ever claimed to be “ultraconductive” to current across the thin dimension of the film – and not along the extensive dimensions. Therefore a strip cut from the film could not function as an “ultraconductive” wire. But MPI’s great claim for years was that they would nonetheless somehow develop a way to to make “ultraconductive” wire. They never did so.  MPI asserted that they would develop a way make the thin “ultraconductive” film thicker – and never did so. MPI asserted that their enrichment method would become the key to making thicker film and wire – but the method never did so.  MPI asserted that their “Ultraconductor” film would surely prove wonderfully useful for making thermoelectric devices – but once again, the rosy claims went unfulfilled. MPI asserted that they would obtain “ultraconductivity” along the plane of the film, instead of merely across the thin dimension, by repositioning the supposedly “ultraconductive” channels. They never did so.

The USAF never “validated” Goldes’ so-called “Ultraconductors” at all, and the USAF never gave Goldes any procurement contract for any “Ultraconductors” at all. The four research grants that Goldes obtained from the USAF were a waste of taxpayer money which never resulted in the development of anything of any value. Goldes’ degree of honesty in the matter of the “Ultraconductor” grants is just the same as his degree of honesty regarding all of his other make-believe “breakthroughs.” It is zero. Zero honesty. Zero “breakthroughs.” Zero fulfilment of his endless empty claims – as usual.

Chava Energy’s “Ultraconductor” fraudcraft was fraudulent first of all because Chava Energy has never done any development work with the so-called “Ultraconductor” film and therefore has never “continued to develop” the film at all, even though they pretended otherwise for five years. Just as Goldes had done at MPI, Chava Energy misrepresented the true prospects of the “Ultraconductor” material, which had never been found or made useful for any purpose, despite the substantial research funding that MPI had received in the nineties.

Mark Goldes was ejected from Chava Energy LLC during the fall of 2014 by Chava Energy’s other co-founder, Hagen Ruff; and all the rosy fraudcraft regarding “Ultraconductors” and “Ultraconductor Magnetic Energy Storage” was suddenly removed from the Chava Energy website. Hagen Ruff had chosen to drop the fraudulent empty pretense of ongoing “Ultraconductor” development that he and Goldes had carried on at Chava Energy for five years – along with several other fraudulent empty pretenses.

But although the partnership ended, the fraud still continues – at Mark Goldes’ so-called “AESOP Institute,” where it is still one of Mark Goldes’ three favorite frauds – along with his pretended “NO FUEL PISTON ENGINE” and his equally worthless “FUEL-FREE TURBINE.”

The reports themselves show that the so-called “Ultraconductors” are not “equivalent” to superconductors, since they do not show zero electrical resistance. That is why Goldes had to invent the name “Ultraconductor” in the first place.

As co-founder and “Chief Marketing Research Officer” at Chava Energy LLC, Goldes carried on the very same pretense he now continues at AESOP Institute: that “Ultraconductor” development “is resuming.”  After Goldes was ejected from Chava Energy in July 2014, all mention of the “Ultraconductor” pretense was suddenly removed from the Chava Energy website. It was nothing but a pretense, since no work at all on “Ultraconductors” was ever done at Chava Energy. Ultraconductor “development” never resumed at Chava Energy during the five years Goldes pretended otherwise, and Ultraconductor development will not be resuming at Aesop Institute, either. It is only a pretense and nothing more – just as Goldes’ “Fractional Hydrogen” “ECHO” engine was only a pretense and nothing more; just as Goldes’ “POWERGENIE” generator was only a pretense and nothing more; just as Goldes’ “Virtual Photon Flux” generator was only a pretense and nothing more; just as Goldes’ “NO FUEL PISTON ENGINE” is only a pretense and nothing more; and just as Goldes’ “FUEL-FREE TURBINE” is only a pretense and nothing more.

There is no need to contact Mark Goldes to get the four SBIR grant reports written by Goldes’ company MPI. A link to the four reports can be found below in Section 12.3 Notes On The ULTRACONDUCTOR Swindle.

7.  Swindle Memory Lane

Several swindles offered in previous years by Mark Goldes’ so-called “AESOP Institute” seem to have played out, and he longer mentions them in the comment-advertisements for “AESOP Institute” that we have found him posting almost every day on Huffington Post. His comments no longer ever mention, for example, the imaginary “Fractional Hydrogen” “SPICE” Engine which he claimed would take a car 1,000 miles on a gallon of water. His comments no longer ever mention the wonderful “POWERGENIE” horn-powered tuning-rod engine which wouldn’t even need the gallon of water – it would be powered by sound energy from its own horn! (The tuning-rod would “multiply” the sound energy, don’t you see.) Nor do his comments any longer ever mention the “MagGen” “Virtual Photon Flux Generator,” or the amazing Ambient Temperature Thermionic Converter. Those swindles have played out, you see. But they they show the character of Mark Goldes very clearly – so let us inspect them in detail.

8.   The “POWERGENIE” Horn-Powered Tuning-Rod Generator Swindle

In appreciation of its entertainment value, let’s look at another example of Mark Goldes’ wonderful offerings in “revolutionary new technology:”

The amazing “POWERGENIE!”

One of the most laughable of Mark Goldes’ many pseudotypes is his “POWERGENIE” horn-powered generator. The brilliant idea of this revolutionary breakthrough is to blow a horn at a magnetized tuning rod, designed to resonate at the frequency of the horn, and then collect the electromotive energy produced by the vibrations of the rod.

We’re not making this up.

POWERGENIE tuning rod engine explained – from the patent:

[The device incorporates] “an energy transfer and multiplier element being constructed of a ferromagnetic substance… having a natural resonance, due to a physical structure whose dimensions are directly proportional to the wavelength of the resonance frequency…

“In this resonant condition, the rod material functions as a tuned waveguide, or longitudinal resonator, for acoustic energy…

“Ferrite rod 800 is driven to acoustic resonance at the second harmonic of its fundamental resonant frequency by acoustic horn 811…”

– But the patent doesn’t tell us who will volunteer to blow the horn at the rod all day. Perhaps it will come with an elephant.

Mark Goldes claimed in 2008 that this wonderful triumph of human genius would bring his company, Magnetic Power Inc, one billion dollars in annual revenue by 2012. Magnetic Power is now defunct, having never produced any “Magnetic Power Modules” – just as Goldes’ company called “Room Temperature Superconductors Inc” is also now defunct, having never produced any “room temperature superconductors.”

9.    The “Fractional Hydrogen” “ECHO” “SPICE” Engine Swindle

Mark Goldes’  make-believe “water-fueled engine” supposedly involving “Collapsing Hydrogen Orbits” is nothing more than copy-cat flimflam based on Randell Mills’ bogus theory of “Classical Quantum Mechanics” (CQM) and “hydrino” hydrogen.

2009: Goldes seeks investors with fraudulent claims that his latest company, Chava Energy, “has been developing enhanced theoretical and practical paths that lead towards commercialization of energy conversion systems that utilize hydrinos.”

Goldes has never stopped claiming to be “developing a Self Powered Internal Combustion Engine – SPICE(tm) powered by hydrinos.”

Here is what the physicist Andreas Rathke has to say about Mills’ theory of “Classical Quantum Mechanics,” on which both Mills’ “hydrinos” and Goldes’ “fractional hydrogen” are supposedly based:

“In this paper, we have considered the theoretical foundations of the hydrino hypothesis, both within the theoretical framework of CQM, in which hydrinos were originally suggested, and within standard quantum mechanics. We found that CQM is inconsistent and has several serious deficiencies. Amongst these are the failure to reproduce the energy levels of the excited states of the hydrogen atom, and the absence of Lorentz invariance. Most importantly, we found that CQM does not predict the existence of hydrino states! Also, standard quantum mechanics cannot encompass hydrino states, with the properties currently attributed to them. Hence there remains no theoretical support of the hydrino hypothesis.”

http://iopscience.iop.org/1367-2630/7/1/127/fulltext/

In other words, not only has Randell Mills’ theory of “Classical Quantum Mechanics” been shown beyond doubt to be false , but it does not even support Mills’ theory of “hydrino” hydrogen states, as Mills would have us believe. There are no “hydrino” states, or “Fractional Hydrogen” states as Goldes has called them. The whole idea is nothing more than a heap of flimflam, that a charlatan may use to swindle nitwits.

In fact, neither “AESOP Institute” not any of Goldes’ other companies have ever done any actual work in this direction, at all.  They have merely claimed  and pretended to be doing so – just as they have falsely claimed and pretended to be working on various other worthless concepts.

10.    The “Virtual Photon Flux” “MagGen” Generator Swindle

The make-believe “Virtual Photon Flux” engine is merely another exercise in flimflam, which Goldes has evidently judged to be played out, since he hardly mentions it any more. For more information, please see section 9.1 under “Notes” below.

11.    Use of Pseudoscience And Pseudophysics.

12.      Exploiting Concerns Over Climate Change.

An “MPI Overview And Summary” produced by MPI in late 2008 actually lists Hagen Ruff as the Chief Executive Officer of MPI, as well as a Director of MPI; Mark Goldes, who had been the CEO of MPI for two decades, is listed only as Chairman. This document also shows that a major component 0f the Goldes-Ruff Fraudcraft was already well developed in 2008: namely, the fraudulent pretense that the worthless “revolutionary breakthroughs” claimed by Goldes and Ruff could provide alternatives to fossil fuels and thereby shift the global economy “from one dependent on fossil fuels to one that exists on clean, fuel-free, distributed power” and thereby “help offset the consequences of global warming.”

At the time when Hagen Ruff, as CEO of MPI, allowed this and many similar statements to be included in the 2008 “MPI Overview,” MPI was claiming among its “breakthroughs” all but one of the seven fraudcraftings – all but Kondrashov’s self-powered air compressor, which Goldes discovered in 2013. Ruff and Goldes knew perfectly well that not one of MPI’s six claimed “breakthroughs” represented anything more than an empty pretense.  They also knew that Randell Mills at Blacklight Power had obtained millions of dollars from foolish investors by means of his “hydrino” fraudcraft – and they saw no reason why MPI couldn’t do the very same.

But Ruff’s position as CEO of MPI could only have lasted a few months. Ruff and Goldes soon began calling themselves the Co-founders of a new company, Chava Energy, and the chavaenergy website was up and running by mid-April 2009.

 

13.   Conclusion.

Mark Goldes’ 46-year career of “revolutionary breakthrough” pretense has nothing to do with science, but only with pseudoscience, pseudophysics, and relentless flimflam, in pursuit of investments, loans and donations from gullible people who never mastered physics very well.

The relentless and pervasive dishonesty, fraudulence, and unscrupulousness, that characterized Mark Goldes’ use of his company Magnetic Power Inc for over twenty years prior to the founding of Chava Energy LLC, has also characterized Mark Goldes’ and Hagen Ruff’s use of Chava Energy LLC and Aesop Institute since 2009.

Using the internet to obtain loans, investments or donations  by making false and fraudulent claims is a federal crime. Anyone who has made loans or donations to Aesop “Institute” or H2 Global LLC should demand their money back, and also submit a complaint to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center, which may be done online at www.ic3.gov.

14.1    Notes On Goldes’ “No Fuel Piston Engine” Swindle

2008:  Mark Goldes Claims MPI’s “Patent Pending” Ambient Heat Engine Has Already Powered A Car For 4800 Miles; Claims MPI Will Earn One Billion Dollars Annually By 2012

In his “Executive Summary” for MPI of June 2, 2008, Goldes states:

“The company is now involved with a revolutionary, patent pending, technology, which converts ambient heat into electricity. This non-magnetic breakthrough has the potential to go to production in the near future.  The system has proven capability to recharge batteries from heat extracted from the air; an alternative to the need to plug-in…

“Prototypes of the non-magnetic [ambient heat engine] system have been in operation for more that one year and successfully run an electric car for more than 4,800 miles with no need to plug-in.”

In the same “Executive Summary” for MPI,  Goldes claims that MPI’s array of imaginary engines will earn the company one billion dollars annually by 2012:

“Revenues from licenses and Joint Ventures are conservatively projected to exceed $1 billion annually by 2012.

“2008:  $25 million;  2009:  $100 million;  2010:  $300 million;  2011:  $600 million,  2012: $1 b[illion].

14.4    Notes On Goldes’ “POWERGENIE” or “Genie” Swindle.

2007:  Mark Goldes Claims He Will Demonstrate His Imaginary One-Kilowatt Horn-Powered Tuning-Rod “GENIE” Engine (aka “POWERGENIE”) Within One Year; Hundred-Kilowatt “GENIE” Might Take Two Years

“A revolutionary breakthrough by Magnetic Power Inc., called GENIE™ (Generating Electricity by Nondestructive Interference of Energy) will make possible the elimination of the need for batteries of every variety. GENIE generators are expected to replace the need to plug-in a plug-in hybrid. 2 kW is all the power that can be taken from a typical wall socket. A pair of 1 kW GENIE generators are expected to demonstrate a compact, inexpensive, capability to end the need to plug-in, prior to the end of 2008.

“If the development of GENIE generators is put on a 24/7 footing, it may be possible to provide 100 kW systems that will fit in the space of a typical gas tank, on a prototype basis in perhaps two years.”

14.6    Notes On Goldes’ “Virtual Photon Flux” “MagGen” Generator Swindle

2005:  Mark Goldes Claims His Flimflam-Powered “Virtual Photon Flux” Magnetic Power Modules Will Earn MPI (His Now-Defunct Company) 335 Million Dollars By 2010

For over twenty years, beginning in 1987, Mark Goldes’ company “Magnetic Power Inc” (MPI) declared year after year that prototypes of its current pretended “revolutionary breakthroughs” would be presented for validation “next year.” Not a single one of these countless claims were ever fulfilled before the worthless company was finally disbanded.

Here is an excerpt from a typical example of a fraudulent “Executive Summary” from MPI, falsely pretending to have already created a working generator powered by “Virtual Photon Flux:”

Executive Summary [November 14,  2005]

“MPI’s mission is to supply the world with clean, abundant, and inexpensive electricity.

“The company is developing technology it calls Magnetic Power Modules(TM). Based upon breakthrough discoveries in MPI’s labs, Magnetic Power Modules are being designed that operate continuously, without fuel, extracting electricity by converting abundant, renewable, Virtual Photon Flux (VPF), an energy source that exists everywhere in the universe. The process will create no pollution. The cost of electricity is estimated to be less than 1 cent/Kwh, significantly less than any competing form of power generation today or in the foreseeable future.

“Magnetic Power Modules will be scaled to a wide range of applications. They appear suitable for the relatively small power needs of consumer devices up through the massive needs of power generation plants.

“Revenues from licenses of Magnetic Power Modules are conservatively projected to exceed $200 million annually by 2009:

“2006: $10 million;   2007: $25 million;   2008: $75 million;   2009: $225 million”

“Following the VPF research in private laboratories around the world, and based on recent breakthroughs in MPI laboratories, prototypes are currently being built that the Company expects will soon receive external validation. The first in a substantial series of patent applications was filed in January, 2005. A plug-in hybrid car may be modified, to become a prototype powered by VPF for local driving, during 2006.

“The commercial potential of Magnetic Power Modules is huge, with applications throughout the roughly $1.8 trillion worldwide market for energy. The Company forecasts rapidly growing revenues and profits, with revenues beginning in 2006…

“Revenues from licenses of Magnetic Power Modules are conservatively projected to exceed $200 million annually by 2009:

“2006: $10 million;  2007: $25 million;   2008: $75 million;   2009: $225 million
