The many appeals I get from interested young folks is precisely why I'm laboring to finish my book and get it published and out there. In the book, my target audience is the sharp young graduate students and young post-doctoral scientists. My intention is to provide them with essentially everything I have been able to discover in the last 30 years, so that they can quickly reach where I am in understanding, and then go much farther.
To build a system extracting EM energy from the vacuum is simple; the problem is in how to intercept and catch the energy flow in a circuit, and then discharge that energy into a load to power it.
For example, charge a parallel plate capacitor, and lay it on a permanent magnet so that the E-field of the capacitor is at right angles to the H-field of the magnet. One has therefore maximized E X H, which is the Poynting energy flow. Even the conventional electrical engineering texts begrudgingly admit that this simple gadget will sit there and pour out EM energy in all directions. Then, of course, some remark is made to dispose of that situation, such as "The theory indicates that the crossed E and H fields are the seat of an energy flow, even though all fields are static.
They do not wish to have to try to explain what inputs the energy to the contraption, and in what form, and from what source. So they just leave it as an "unsolved and abandoned problem". That is exactly where the young student must start, because it grasps the entire problem in a nutshell.
Anyway, building the MEG is quite complex, even though it "looks simple". It isn't. There are four areas of physics involved, in addition to electrodynamics.
My advice is to keep all this in mind as you continue in school. About the time you finish your sophomore courses in university, you will then begin to see many things that open to you for experimenting, once you understand that the energy is coming from the vacuum, not the generator or the battery.
