Human innovation has granted us a wealth of new technologies that revolutionize how we live, interact, and function as a civilization.
From advancements in medicine to quantum computers, everyday, human ingenuity improves our lives in countless ways.
And yet, even with this incredible potential, it seems some industries are resistant to change and progress.
Despite being over a hundred years old, oil/gas-powered vehicles remain the dominant mode of human transportation—a system that, for the most part, has not evolved or moved forward in any fundamental way since Henry Ford created the Model T in 1908.
Speculations abound as to why this is: some consider the genius of Nikola Tesla and theories about the oil industry conspiring to sabotage his work on free energy systems.
But one fact that does not require a conspiracy theory is the innovation in water-powered vehicles—that’s right: cars that run on water.
Sound too good to be true? We agree, it is pretty fantastical, but the reality is that there are numerous patents on file right now which you can look up for this exact technology.
One Japanese company called Genepax revealed their own water-powered car in 2008 that runs off fluid from a variety of sources, be it lake water, from the tap, or bottled.
You can even see the patent for the technology by going to the Industrial Property Digital Library (IPDL) site and doing a “PAJ” search for the publication number 2006-244714.
Whereas everyday people like us find such innovations fascinating, other people only see a threat.
Enter: Stanely Allen Meyer, a pioneer of the same water-powered technology who, after dining at a restaurant back in 1998, suddenly became ill and, as his last words, shouted “They poisoned me!”
While official reports claim Meyer’s invention was a fraud, more skeptical interpretations suggest his ideas were making enemies with the wrong people.
As reported by Collective-Evolution:
“[Meyer] was sued by potential investors, it was determined that his device was nothing revolutionary and simply uses the process of electrolyses.
“His claims were determined fraudulent, and his technology was under investigation by a number of investors, the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Defense.
“It was patent pending, all of a sudden Stan Meyer died suddenly in 1998 after dining at a restaurant. Many close to him, including his twin brother, believe Stan was intentionally poisoned. Stan claimed, just before he died in he restaurant parking lot, that he was poisoned.”
The sabotaging of Tesla’s genius, the alleged poisoning of Meyer during a dinner-meeting with investors….at some point coincidence becomes conspiracy….
But thankfully, the innovations of water-powered technology continue to move forward. Recently, researchers from Virginia Tech managed to extract hydrogen energy from water.
Along with the pioneering efforts of companies like Genepax, we may some day soon find ourselves in a world free from dependence on fossil fuels and entering a new age of clean, free energy.
