BILLIONAIRES AND FUSION FUNDING: STANDARD THEORIES AND UNUSUAL ...
Yesterday I blogged about the following fascinating article appearing on the BBC's site, and shared by Mr. T.M.:
The Secretive, Billionaire-backed Plans to Harness Fusion
In that blog, I noted several circumstantial facts that were, to my amateur's mind, suggestive of the fusion work decades ago of Philo Farnsworth in the 1960s, and of Nazi scientist Ronald Richter in Argentina, in the 1950s. These features were (1) the use of boron(boron-11) in the approach of Tri Alpha, surveyed in the article, and (2) the use of vortices, (3) magnetic plasma containment, and (3) shockwaves in the approach of Global Fusion, each of which has some analogue in the work of Richter. Now, I am quite far from suggesting that these correspondences are actual or genuine. They are, given the scarcity of information presented in the article, superficial and most likely only coincidental. As I suggested and implied yesterday, these odd correspondences might suggest that the work of Farnsworth and Richter may have been continued in some black projects world of research.
And this brings us to the nub of the matter, and to today's (very) high octane speculation. For new readers here, "high octane speculation" simply means our willingness, on this website, to speculate widely beyond the weight of the evidence itself, and today is no different, for I propose to speculate wildly again.
Let us assume, for the sake of argument, and for the sake of our high octane speculation, that these odd resemblances and analogues are in fact indicative of the continuation of research along the lines and principles outlined by Farnsworth and Richter decades ago. What might this, in turn, portend?
Yesterday I pointed out that the article notes the heavy involvement of venture capital from billionaires like Jeff Bezos of Amazon, and, more importantly, of Venrock, the Rockefeller venture capital fund. It is to be noted that venture capital is precisely that: capital invested in high risk ventures that may or may not "pay off," but if they do pay off, will pay handsome returns on investment according to the old adage, high risk, high return. But let's place this in a wider context before we get down to the high octane speculation at hand.
In the past few weeks, we've seen some extraordinary stories coming out in the news, not the least being the fact that Saudi Arabia has experienced budget shortfalls, and that in response, the Saudis have, for the first time (1) offered sales of sovereign securities, i.e., bonds, to offset the shortfall, and (2) offered public offerings of Saudi Aramco shares on the market, and (3) announced a $2 trillion-plus fund for the development of solar energy in recognition that the Kingdom will have to transition its economy from petroleum to something else. While its plans are open to criticism(and I think ultimately doomed to fail), they are an indicator that something "big" is up; moves like this are not contemplated and actually set into motion without some sort of intelligence percolating through the corridors of high finance and power. Add to this the equally significant story that the Rockefeller foundations divested themselves of their petroleum interests last year, and you get the picture: something big - in my opinion - is indeed going on, and those in the know appear to be pre-positioning themselves to take advantage of it.
Which brings us to yesterday's and today's blog, and some high octane speculation. Again, it is to be stressed that the Rockefeller venture capital group Venrock is involved in investment in Tri Alpha's fusion approach using boron-11. Jeff Bezos, alternatively, has committed funds to Global Fusion's "shockwave" approach, and both of these approaches have tenuous resemblances to concepts first broched(so far as I am aware) in the work of Farnsworth and Richter.
The question that now must be asked, is why? What does this interest and investment perhaps signify?
My answer and high octane speculation, is that these groups and the financial interests they represent might, in fact, signify something far different than most people might expect, in that they represent not "people in the know", but rather, people not in the know, and trying, via investments, to gain intelligence and knowledge to which they have otherwise been denied access. Or to put it very differently, at some point in the previous decades, they were shut out of the black projects world, and that they suspect that things might be further along in terms of some of these technologies than they have been told, and are trying, via investments, to ascertain what technologies might, in fact, already be in existence and viable. In short, groups like the Rocklefellers might have been shut out of the intelligence loop in the past, and are now realizing, for whatever reason, that they have been locked out and are playing catch up. In this respect it intrigues me that there are so many apparent coincidental points in their current investments, and the work of the fusion pioneers of yesteryear. In short, I am suggesting that they themselves have caught wind of something, but that they themselves do not know exac tly what it is, and are funding private projects that they suspect mirror aspects of secret research projects.
This is, of course, very high octane speculation indeed, and it does not detract for a moment from the fact that such groups and people do not invest their funds lightly, even their venture capital funds. Tri Alpha's relative secrecy about its techniques and technologies is a case in point, for where money goes, inside information and intelligence information follow not far behind. All the indicators suggest that, indeed, something is going on behind the scenes. But I am suggesting that one of those things is that yesteryears' financial and technocratic elite themselves may not be entirely "in the loop", and that should give everyone pause, for the implications of all of this high octane speculation are that there is another, newer, technocratic elite in the background, and that in turn gives them an enormous financial leverage.
See you on the flip side...

Interesting to watch the Rockefellers throw in with the unorthodox Tri Alpha. Perhaps continuous thrust lends itself better to a stealthy design rather than the bursting General Fusion device? What with those longitudinal waves and all. One has to wonder how much time, money, and man power was spent on redesigning, retooling, and retrofitting submarines and bombers over the years to be sonar and radar stealthy. It would only make sense, especially if we are already behind the curve.
On the other hand, it may just be the window dressing for a plausible route to divulge some new energy technology already percolating in the black projects world. That would account for the secrecy – they can always say that the approach was so radical that they did not want to risk ridicule until it was in a marketable state.
If they have working production models, the “establishment” can hardly claim it “can’t work – it’s scientifically impossible.”
Bezos is one of the billionaire space pioneers after all, so he is either in on the timeline, or he really is wasting huge amounts of money on outdated rocket technology (out of the loop).
You have an excellent point. While we realize the WWII connections with the “elite”, it is entirely possible that have become ‘just’ outside the loop and not aware of their position in the overall hierarchy. This forehead smacking moment might have just arrived for them.
I am just German enough to see the play. I doubt they were ever alone in their “chalkboard computations”, but they were able to prove their competency to maintain their position.
As I sad to a friend recently: it is getting “interestinger and interestinger”.
I’ve been wondering about an elite elite for some time, thinking that the focus on the Rothschilds and Rockefellers was a dead end. So I’m really happy to see this post.
How can these guys not know some other energy source was in play when you have the Phoenix lights event, the Norway spiral, etc?
But this is also what I’m wondering about…we hear this drip drip of information concerning extraterrestrials and the need to explore, mine, and secure our neck of the woods of the cosmos, so perhaps the top level elite feel they could use some help in this regard, so they are encouraging these newcomers to get involved. That they wouldn’t want to give away their best kept secrets is no surprise, so they let them figure it out for themselves.
I still haven’t figured out who is behind all this, who the top dogs are, but it seems pretty obvious they have (at least previous) nazi connections.
Some suspect the Pope/Holy Roman Emperor is at the top. Don’t let them fool you; the Kings and Queens of this world are still way above the Rothschilds and Rockefellers. Though the head of the Rothchilds might be a Jewish king and descended from the line of David. I think most royal families married into this line. Some suspect the intelligence agencies are blackmailing everybody and might be running things to a certain extent. Others believe deeply inbedded beurocrates are brokering deals with the intelligence heads and are running things. I suspect the Royals call the shots or their intelligence agencies.
U.S. Patent No. 9324897 B2
Grant date: 2016-04-26
Title: Conversion of high-energy photons into electricity
Assignee: TRI ALPHA ENERGY INC., Foothill Ranch, CA, US
What is claimed is:
1. A high energy photon energy converter for converting high energy photon emissions into electrical energy comprising
– a first layer of material that absorbs high energy photons and emits electrons ejected from an atom in the first layer of material by a high energy photon absorbed in the first layer of material, the first layer having a thickness less than the length of the mean free path of the ejected electrons in the first layer of material, and
– a second layer of material that collects electrons emitted from the first layer of material and is electrically coupled to the first layer of material, the second layer of material having a thickness greater than the length of the mean free path in the second layer of material of the electrons emitted from the first layer of material,
wherein the first layer of material is configured as a cylindrical core and the second layer of material is configured as a cylindrical shell disposed about the cylindrical core,
wherein the radius of the cylindrical core is less than 1/2 the length of the mean free path of the ejected electrons in the first material.
Fabulous speculation. David R., for whatever one might think of him, is in fact a revolutionary figure. While he was at Chase, he saw the future of banking and fought internal inertia there to try to get the bank’s old guard to see the handwriting on the wall. He was also well aware of how technology and communications would transform banking; which fell on deaf ears in the bank until the 1990’s.
The R family’s goals, to me, seem exactly to be an awareness that the transformation of civilization by technology is now beginning to be exactly mirrored in the energy realm. The goal, it appears to me, has always been to “stay on top.” Your thesis here, gossamer it might be, fits precisely into what I have been seeing over the years.
Interestingly, the energy revolution has been brought about by the computer and communications revolution. Only through spreading awareness of Tesla’s work, Maxwell’s actual work, the anticontributions of Heavyside, those pesky Nazis, and Einstein’s inability to get rid of ‘k’, the energy or stress of basic space, point to the reality that energy is everywhere and available. Now, we see, that the energy genie is “breaking the containment of its magnetic bottle.
Seems like the Rocks are reading your books. But I’m not surprised that they have not reached out; as that would point people in your direction. I have to wonder if the failure to “grant” you a wikipedia page is a private actor’s way of keeping the hounds off the scent.
Just wondering could these fusion reactors be turned into mini hydrogen bombs. Like our neighborhood dirty bombs aka fission reactors we know and trust. The idea these guys especially the Rockefellers are our of the breakaway civilization loop I find interesting I wonder who they piss off to have the door shut in their face and could the Rothschilds,Saudis be out in the cold also. Then would are TPTB at the helm of this new power elite.
Of course in the utopian energy future the people have access to the energy grid and contribute solar power; getting energy credits. Those credits are exchanged for other goods & services. But that is a world where all share in a living economy that values lives of all living beings; where 100% of society & the planet benefit; at the expense of the obscene morally challenged 1%.
Interesting take. But the known facts could also support an argument that fusion is just another technology being spun out of the black world into the white world via established players. This would make sense given the significant threat any commercial LENR device would pose to top-down control of energy resources. Better to swing from coal to natgas while you slowly bring fusion into the mix in order to keep LENR out of the mix and maintain control of the energy feed to the proles.
That Saud might spin off Amarco to the muppets only adds further support.
“But the known facts could also support an argument that fusion is just another technology being spun out of the black world into the white world via established players.”
This is my take on the matter, also. I would also speculate that it is occurring at this time because ‘simpler’ energy-production devices are at risk of becoming mainstream. Non-controllable ones. Power-to-the-people ones (pun).
It is well-known that a product does not have to be ‘best’ in its market; it just has to occupy the market niche before other ones can take hold. This might explain the capital suddenly flowing-in to these firms. They might be under-the-gun, timewise…
There is no telling what is on the table due to the lack of transparency. Making predictions based on iceberg tips is tough sledding. However, this is definitely a sign of serious change. Everyone should consider just what these changes may portend and make ready as best you can. The PTB don’t perform major renovations without good reason.
