- Some of you may recall a recent email where I briefly
discussed nanotechnology and the new GM Hy Wire hydrogen gas powered automobile.
- When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that
something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that
something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
- - -- Arthur C. Clarke (b.1917) British science fiction
- What you will see at this link is not nanotechnology
but nanotechnology will make this a much more powerful solution. My company
is working on something very similar but it involves just about every component
on the vehicle and literally hundreds of new applications. An entirely
new type of auto industry is on the drawing boards and in the labs and
is not dependent on Big Oil in any manner. You can imagine how unpopular
that is with Big Oil and the Bush Administration.
- The BBC Youtube video has been removed for "terms
of use" violation but probably because they showed too much. When
they lifted the body off and showed the chassis, they definitely showed
too much. You will not know what that means, but they do and so do
- We are working on both a way to retrofit existing cars
so they would no longer need gasoline and solutions for the future to power
automobiles and other things with hydrogen.
- What prompted this email was there was a link on the
Jeff Rense website that I had to laugh at when I clicked on it and read
what some scientists claim to have discovered.
- I hate to give these guys a clue but God created that
a long time before they did their little chemistry project down at Georgia
- "December 05, 2006
- Danger? Nanotube-Infested Waters Created in the Lab
- Carbon nanomaterials can mix in water despite being hydrophobic,
raising the possibility of a spreading spill in the future."
- I wrote Jeff about it and he asked that I address it
since I am the CEO of a nanotechnology company and much deeper into this
science than even many scientists.
- "Hello Jeff,
- Pertaining to an article posted on your site
- Much of the alarmist R&D is being paid for by the
same people trying to control and dominate nanotech world wide, i.e. Halliburton
/ KB&R, Dow, DuPont, Eastman, Bayer, etc.
- It has been known for years that carbon nanotubes were
found in the black pigments used to Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.
Every forest fire combines heat and carbon and makes low grade nanotubes.
- Also, diesel engines spew out low grade buckyballs and
nanotubes. Always have.
- What they are trying to do is deter anyone from pressing
forward like we have and going way above their levels of purity and structural
integrity. Is there a risk? Yes, there is with all technology. However,
for every one risk I can cite a thousand benefits to mankind.
- This is another big boo factor they are using to try
to dominate it world wide.
- As a technology, mankind did not invent nanotechnology,
God did. We just finally reached the scientific level that we could see
nanotechnology and work at that scale.
- Forest fires, fireplaces and camp fires create low purity
carbon nanotubes and always have. Even the lowly Franklin Stove and the
more efficient Vermont Stove make carbon nanotubes.
- They have found low purity carbon nanotubes in the dark
pigments of the great masters Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, so I
am not quite certain what they think they discovered at Georgia Tech,
- That is why you do not see any research papers from our
scientists and why we tuck away breakthroughs in separate entities that
are not named Patmos Nanotechnologies, LLC. I gave them a choice
do you want research papers or equity and financial benefit from
what you invent? It was not a hard choice for them to make.
- In less than 90 days we are breaking ground on a very
large carbon nanotube facility and have 15 technology spin-offs that will
be designed, built and put into operation over the next 18-24 months. And
that is just the tip of the iceberg.
- Diesel engines create low purity buckyballs (Fullerene
structures named after Buckminster Fuller) and nanotubes due to the breakdown
of the diesel fuel (a hydrocarbon from which the carbon comes to make the
nanotubes), and always have. There is plenty of evidence that breathing
emissions from trucks, buses and automobiles is not healthy but those same
researchers have never found a link between carbon nanotubes and any negative
- To make carbon nanotubes you need heat and carbon and
a few other things we do not discuss with anyone.
- From diesel engines alone, mankind has been making nanotubes
for years and did not know it until recently. The discovery was not possible
until certain advancements were made in electron and atomic force microscopes
and NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) machines that allowed the scientific
minds to start moving forward to the next level.
- Every time you have a forest fire and it then rains,
the surrounding waters have low purity carbon nanotubes that were created
in the heat of the fire, carbon in the plants, and runoff into nearby streams.
Said another way, these scientists at Georgia Tech discovered nothing
that was not already there any way.
- I am one that believes such tests should be done so that
mankind will better understand the risks and the benefits. Nanotechnology
is like most in that it can be used for good or evil. We choose to
only work on those advancements that would help mankind.
- There has been research in Italy that suggests that the
use of DU weapons not only causes a deadly toxic DU aerosol but also nano-particulates
of metals and other elements that may be as harmful as the DU. I
reported on that in one of the DU updates.
- I am aware of one research study at the NCTR (National
Center for Toxicological Research) where extremely small fibers of cotton
have been used in lab mice and rats to cause malignant tumors. Particle
size can be harmful but it can also be beneficial in ways that are more
- It all depends on the ethics of the person or company,
and I personally believe the biggest issue in nanotechnology is not harmful
end results as much as it should be the ethics of what this science can
and cannot be used for. That alone is where I parted company with those
in the US that think evil uses of this science are profitable so they chase
- Some of our competitors are more concerned about new
killing weapons and not rebuilding our entire society around a technology
that could make this planet work in much better ways.
- Some have sent me emails asking about all of the new
nano-food additives. Frankly, we have seen no benefit whatsoever
in such and there are much better ways. These additives to me are
just another "Tamiflu" scam and someone chasing money when their
science is not up to the task of much better applications.
- I have read every negative article and research study
about nanotechnology and have found some common threads in them.
- For example, as a "National Strategic Technology",
and one driven by intellectual property, I am fully aware that the U.S.
as a matter policy deems this science one of those areas of IP that will
keep America Number One and we can rest on our laurels and the rest of
the world can slave away in nanotech plants for the glory of America.
- You probably recall that I have addressed in many recent
emails that our Ivory Tower twits came up with the really stupid strategy
many years ago and that is why they think a jobless America is just great.
Their objectives in nanotechnology are merely their latest really
- Some of the R&D reports that cite all of the "BOO
FACTORS" about nanotechnology are paid for by companies that are trying
to dominate this science globally. Firms like Dow, DuPont, Halliburton,
etc that have a game plan that they will dominate the next $1 to $2 trillion
per year industry.
- It will not happen for several reasons, first being the
United States does not hold the patent on math, chemistry, physics, quantum
mechanics, or nanotechnology. You have to consider the intellectual
arrogance of a nation that would presume such, as if they alone had the
right to music and art and quality of life.
- It will not happen but that is what they are trying to
do. They are trying to dissuade venture capitalists, major investors,
and even start up companies like mine from coming into the market with
better technology and taking considerable blocks of market share on scientific
excellence alone. I do not have to write a diatribe to convince most
Americans that Halliburton does not excel at anything but questionable
business practices and unmitigated greed.
- I can assertively state that they do not excel at nanotechnology.
- They own Kellogg Brown & Root outright and that company
has a major interest in a company called CNI, or Carbon Nanotubes, Inc.
in Houston, TX. It is a spin off of the Rice University scientific
efforts in nanotechnology and the CNI plant is inside of a KB&R facility.
- Their product down at CNI is 25% to 30% less pure than
ours and that is a huge difference when dealing at the nanotechnology level
and have to account for matters like chemistry, atom-to-atom connections,
quantum mechanics and physics.
- Many scientists use the phrase "garbage in, garbage
out" and that is what they do at KB&R and Halliburton.
- It scares the Hell out of them that we have over 650
PhDs at our fingertips in virtually every scientific discipline you can
name and some most have never heard of. Those numbers are about to grow
in some huge ways as you and they will learn in the near future.
- There have been several announcements lately about firms
setting up LLC subsidiaries to do aluminum-based nano-bombs for our Defense
Department. About the only thing their product is good for is such
because high levels of scientific achievement require higher levels of
purity of the carbon nanotubes in two ways. First is the purity in
terms of no residual matter that prevents or hinders certain chemical and
physics characteristics. Secondly is what the scientists term morphology,
which is basically a fancy way of saying integrity of the crystalline structure.
- Many that are not even in certain sectors are bleeding
over into other sectors to try and dominate some of these new scientific
- The higher the morphology the stronger the carbon nanotube
is. Highly pure nanotubes such as we make can be altered to do specific
things that can be conductive, semi-conductive, insulative, thermally conductive,
strengthening, and even entirely new products with stunning chemical and
physical properties. We are about to merge our R&D in with a
petrochemical company in the areas of polymers that has a high chance of
revolutionizing that industry to the next level.
- I have personally talked to and met with scientists that
have purchased carbon nanotubes from CNI and they informed me that they
thought their product was over-priced, over-glorified activated carbon.
With purity levels of 70-75% and extremely damaged morphology that
is basically what it is. These scientists cannot make with their
nanotubes what they have been able to do with what we make.
- Just to give you an idea of what we do, nanotechnology
is the manipulation of matter down to the nanometer level. A nanometer
is one-billionth of a meter, so take 39.37 inches and divide the ruler
into 1 billion increments.
- I am not going to share with our competition how but
we are operational at under one-half of a nanometer.
- The average human hair on your head is about 80,000 nanometers
thick. What we make is from 5 nm to 500 nm in size.
- The average virus is about 300 nm in size, so some of
what we do is sub-viral in size. Don't let that term scare you. From
such a small scale we have been able to probe areas of slickness of finishes
that would boggle your mind if I shared what they are being used for in
- What also sets us apart from most competitors is we produce
>95% to >99.5% purity and come out of our process at around 85% purity
in step one, which is much higher than most of the competitors produce
after step two. What has them really concerned is we have invented
the means to scale up the laboratory process to industrial level production.
Our machine is even more remarkable than the breakthroughs in the lab.
- Part of this new Department of Homeland Security right
to seize laptops and copy their contents is merely an underhanded way for
theUS to steal technology secrets from others. They do not want to admit
that but that is exactly what they are trying to do. They will not
be getting $1 dollar worth of information from us.
- They think they can turn around America through nanotechnology
and I can tell you that the game plan is failing for many reasons. It
could be fixed but not by this current group of nano-morons we have in
Washington, DC. Those nano-brains in DC have not a clue what they
are doing in the nanotechnology sector.
- They only serve the Greater Good of Corporate America
and it is the smaller firms that are making the greatest advancements.
- All over Europe and other places the US Embassies are
creating what they call "American Centers" which are nothing
more than a means to get close enough to spy on what R&D is being done
and determine who the brightest people are so the US can use the "brain
drain" technique to keep other nations lagging behind the US as a
nanotechnology producer. That is why they are pushing increases in the
H1-B visa program so they can try to lure away scientists within the Multipolarization
Big Five and it is not working.
- The US wants all nations to be nanotechnology customers
of the US, not producers. The rest of the world decided they will be producers,
and frankly do not care what the US thinks about that.
- I have to deal with this every day and I can say that
the US approach to nanotechnology is failing across the board for a wide
variety of reasons not the least of which is US arrogance.
- I can state assertively that what I have seen in labs
in Europe is years ahead of the United States in nanotechnology. Many
nations are working on nanotechnology. I have even seen some very advanced
R&D coming out of Iran, and as could be predicted Russia, the EU, the
PRC and India are moving ahead regardless of US policies in this science.
- For every "big boo" report I have read I can
cite over 1,000 reasons to do nanotechnology. It is our next logical
step in scientific advancement and it will move our chemistry and physics
to the next level. From nanotechnology will come breakthroughs that
will make this a better planet and closer to reaching sustainable levels
- In a very real way, this science is our next step in
reaching mankind's potential.
- I have given this speech over and over again and this
is the most important part of what I have had to say:
- "As far as reaching into the future and maintaining
a balance in this world that works, we have learned two things in our R&D.
- First, we have learned that if we can conceive of it
and effectively direct the R&D, stunning advancements have happened,
are possible and there are many more on the horizon. This science
called nanotechnology is expanding mankind's potential and it is how we
manage that potential that could determine our fate on this planet.
- Secondly, we occasionally learn that we have tread into
an area where God's laws of chemistry and physics cannot be altered to
make it work, or we have learned that our level of knowledge in chemistry
and physics is at this time not up to the task. We are at this time
nominally in the Second Millennium of Physics and Chemistry and there will
be a Third, Fourth, and Fifth Millennium of man's knowledge.
- The physics of the Third Millennium would be as indistinguishable
to the average person today as the works of an advanced Extraterrestrial
civilization dropping in tomorrow for a visit to planet Earth. The
average mind cannot grasp the technology of today, much less a thousand
years into the future.
- I am convinced that we will not make it to the Third
Millennium unless we both develop this technology and also develop the
ethics in how it can and cannot be used for the benefit of all mankind.
Just consider that 50 years ago intercontinental jet travel was not
possible, nor was man's quest for the Moon and neighboring planets. Our
overall knowledge base as a species is doubling at about every 10 years
and it will soon be doubling at a much faster pace if we learn how to keep
from destroying ourselves.
- I remember once telling my son that when I was born there
were no televisions and we did not get a color television until I was 14
years old. He was 14 at the time and trying to ponder what his life
would be like without Nintendo, color TV, air conditioning, cell phone
and his computer.
- Now when my son and I talk about what my company is doing,
he is starting to see a future that just last year, or 5 years ago or 10
years ago was not possible but is today and tomorrow. When I look at the
future I see a bright future for mankind that is at this time being squandered
by leaders and corporate types that have no vision other than for today,
and greed, and profits, and control that they can no longer control."
- The next Mars mission would be greatly enhanced by some
of the things we have done in the lab. The NASA Moon Colony would be enhanced
by the same types of scientific breakthroughs. However, much will
not go because it does not survive the "Invented Here" mindset
of Corporate America. Much of what is being invented outside of the
US is years ahead of what his happening in US labs.
- They are myopic and it is their greed and desire to control
that makes them so.
- I have seen it up close and personal and it is one of
five reasons we decided to put our first plant in Europe and not even mentioning
where the future plants will be.
- Companies like Bechtel would be astounded at the large
scale engineering projects we will be involved in as soon as the R&D
is complete in the labs, but they do not give us the time of day. We are
not on the corporate buddies list.
- Hydrogen fuel cells are a reality with nanotechnology
as are large scale hydrogen recovery projects that over time will dwarf
the Big Oil way of doing things. Hydrogen is much more plentiful than
oil, cheaper to recover and is 1.5 times as powerful as gasoline. Best
of all, it does not pollute. The engines of the future will emit only
water vapor and free hydrogen and free oxygen that was not consumed in
- I cracked up laughing when the GM Hy Wire was introduced
in Germany, a hydrogen powered car with a range of 80 miles. Wow,
whoopee! If that were a Suburban like I drive I presume the range would
be maybe 40 miles. Dow makes the fuel cell for that vehicle, and
wow, 80 miles in range. We met with Dow years ago and evidently they
did not get it that the range could be thousands of miles.
- Biotechnology and biophysics breakthroughs are on the
horizon like artificial sight, artificial hearing, and repairing damaged
nerves and bodies to restore movement.
- Ways of attacking cancer, HIV, HHV-6 are in our labs
right now. We are working on three different ways to treat cancer and
each boggles my mind at what is possible as sub-viral scales. We
are working on a new type of surgical technique that alone can kill cancer.
- New types of materials that will change the automobile,
the jet airliner, and many things you touch. Imagine new types of engines
and motors that have components so slick that there is less heat, less
friction, less wear, more power and less energy consumption and even less
need for lubricants.
- Imagine capturing sunlight and converting it to electricity
for lesser dependence on electricity made by burning fossil fuels. It
is already being done at www.nanosolar.com and our nanotubes are higher
purity, higher photovoltaic conversion rate.
- Most people know that industrial pollution in the Great
Lakes is of staggering proportions and what was fresh water is now life-threatening
to consume or be around. Nanotechnology may well be the answer to
reviving vast stores of fresh water and making them safe again.
- Imagine better air and water filters, some of which can
purify water from industrial pollutants and naturally occurring contaminates
to drinking water supplies.
- Imagine 64,000 story high skyscrapers reaching into outer
- Their LiftPort facility is 15,000 square feet and will
make mid-grade multi-wall carbon nanotubes. Our facility that will
be under construction very soon is 300,000 square feet and a Phase II plant
of over 2,000,000 square feet is on the design boards. We do not
make mid-grade, we make maximum purity.
- We are making an announcement in 2-4 weeks that will
rock some worlds and break some hearts of some of our competitors.
- I can hear many of you going boo-hoo for Halliburton,
- Many wrongly assume that what Bush Co and Corporate America
fear about me is what I have exposed about them. No, had it not been
me it would have been someone else. Following their sleaze is like tracking
a slug across your front porch. I just have the ability to track more
of them simultaneously due to my background and jump on their ass quicker.
- What they fear is a nanotechnology company they cannot
and do not control making headway to change this world for the better.
- We are in three groups, all privately held so these predators
cannot try to take us over through illegal capital markets fraud like happened
to Global Crossing. They do not like it that I am not an under 30
techie that they can impress with money and take over what we have worked
for years to get the strategic advantage on them.
- They do not like it that I am both a strategic thinker
that they cannot predict and I am one Hell of a chess player at outmaneuvering
- They know I have no price tag nor do I share in their
vision of the future. To them, that is scary.
- It is even scarier to them that to work with me they
have to do so on my terms, not theirs. We have had three major corporations
offer to us that they wanted us to be their nanotechnology think-tank,
so they could profit from what we know and leave us the crumbs.
- I am convinced that Big Oil does not truly get it regarding
nanotechnology. To make high purity carbon nanotubes does take hydrocarbons
and as I look at the future the "highest and best use" for the
world petroleum supplies is to develop the technology to break away from
fuel sources that pollute the air, water, and soil.
- That is where we are headed and damn, do they ever hate
it. Actually if they truly understood it, they would see a much better
future for all including themselves.
- But, it is not my job to take them to raise.
- Stay tuned, the PRNewswire release will be out soon and
there will be gnashing of teeth in certain board rooms in America.
- Best regards,
