Thanks for the kind words, and I'm glad you find the material of interest.
As for the universities: My advice is, if you can go to university and finish it, please do so. Just learn the physics etc. as it is taught (after all, those models DO work okay for an awful lot of very useful things!) But keep your mind open, and remember you are learning the best model they have, the way they see it. Nothing at all wrong with that.
The only problem is when scientists begin to assume they have PERFECT models. We already know from the Godel theorem alone, that no model is perfect. A model is USEFUL or it is not USEFUL. It may be quite useful for many things, and fail miserably for others (all models, including my own, e.g., do that).
So we are not trying to find the "perfect" model. Just one (or several) that are more useful than the conventional models, and will therefore allow us to do things we presently are unable to do, and have a more advanced technology than we presently are able to have.
My advice to all the students I write to, is not to argue or debate with the professors! Just take what they give you and help you learn and achieve, and once you have the tools, then redo some things yourself.
The work will go on, whether I'm alive or not. The purpose of the website is to get the information out there, so that those parts of it that are found useful need not have to be rediscovered painfully by others. Those parts that prove in error, should of course be discarded or corrected.
The forum notion is not useful to my purpose. In a chat board etc., suddenly you find all sorts of ad hominem attacks, heated defenses of dogma, all sorts of ego trips and posturing, the works. The internet is already filled with plenty of that. My purpose, during the time I have left, and through the good graces of Mike Reiker and Tony Craddock, is to get everything up there, so it's available to anyone interested. At that point, essentially my work will be finished. Hopefully, we will also get a COP>1.0 EM power system on the world market about a year from now, and also hopefully we will at least get the medical work started.
I'm also working (on my presently necessarily limited schedule) on a book which will be published next year by World Scientific, and thus will sit on the library shelves of a great many universities. In that book, we will reveal just about everything we know about extracting EM energy from the vacuum, how to grab a system in disequilibrium before it decays back to equilibrium and thus back to COP<1.0, lock it into that excited position, and hold it there for stable COP>1.0 operation. Also, we will reveal how to close-loop a COP>1.0 system for self-powering. That is a formidable task, quite complex, and not at all the simple matter that most of the "overunity community" believes it to be. We will also include our proposed solution to the cold fusion reactions, why those reactions occur, precisely how they occur, and give the precise new nuclear reactions producing the alpha particles, excess deuterium, the tritium, etc. A lot more will also be in there. We are about 2/3 through with the book now, and still working on it as much as we can.
Meanwhile, the higher group symmetry EM -- under its pioneers such as Evans, Barrett, Harmuth, and many others --- is now very firmly in the literature, as is EM energy from the vacuum. If we can get the medical information headed into the literature in similar fashion, then that will finish it up for this old dog.
For a single "good book" to dig into, written for the layperson, try Paul C. W. Davies, Ed., The New Physics, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, New York, 1989. This book, with papers by many excellent scientists, is a sweeping, expert survey of the newer developments in modern physics, including many of the major topics at the frontiers of fundamental research.
My best wishes to you in your continued work, in whatever direction,
