Journalist Nick Cook discusses the MEG

Nick Cook's book, The Hunt for Zero Point: Inside the Classified World of Antigravity Technology, 2002 U.S. edition (there is an earlier 2001 British edition), mentions the MEG as its last paragraph.  Here is the full quotation:

Extract from Nick Cook's The Hunt for Zero Point, Broadway Books, New York, 2002, p. 277-278.

"Since the publication of the U.K. edition of The Hunt for Zero Point, one other significant postscript to the story is worth mentioning—in time, the word "momentous" may even be appropriate.  On March 26, 2002, a U.S. patent was granted for a device called the "Motionless Magnetic Generator," or MEG, that its supporters say will be the world's first commercially available free-energy home-generator.  The MEG has been developed by a team of inventors led by long-time zero point energy pioneer and proponent Dr. Thomas E. Bearden, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel and former nuclear engineer.  The MEG is designed to provide an indefinite output of 2.5 kilowatts—enough to run a room or two in your house—by tapping into the infinite energy of the quantum sea.  Link three or four MEGs together, proponents claim, and you get enough output to run an entire house.  The event is significant, at least, because the U.S. Patent Office traditionally shuns so-called "free-energy" devices; de facto, it has accepted there must be something to this one.  As I write this, scant weeks after the patent's acceptance, it remains to be seen whether claims for the MEG will indeed transcend into commercially available hardware.  But maybe, just maybe—as I sit here recalling Hal Puthoff's exhortation—3.26.02 will be the date I put in my diary as the day the world changed—forever."

Comments by Tom Bearden:

Nick confused the 2.5 KW basic unit we will develop in one year after we get funding, with what we have already developed (which is just successful lab experimental devices, much smaller). He also missed the E in MEG stands for "electromagnetic", but that's quibbling.  At least it's a very positive mention!
