AFAIK, Mr. Hardcastle burned his own money on this. He's not a fraud like Wayne Travis.
That is my understanding as well.   Mr. Hardcastle is a true believer in his folly.  He did have a short go at a business that he thought would fund his project.  The business called Buddink did not work out.

Why do you think so? BTW, is Mr.Philip Hardcastle his real identity? If I remember well he claimed to be working with the Stanford University, and been Australian, but I never managed to find any reference. Is there his CV available anywhere on the web?
He filed a few patent applications under his name. He wrote some cranky letters to his PM in .au etc. He's a honest but IMO deluded guy.

That is his real name Philip Julian Hardcastle.  He is Australian.   I believe that he was at one time a geologist for an oil company.

OK, thanks for the info MarkE and Orbut 3000, I stand corrected. In that case, if he did not defraud anyone, I wish him all best.

I popped in to read this thread and was astounded at the idle talk.

I have never claimed to be a geologist.


I was from 1981 to 1984 a Senior Geophysicist for Esso Australia, whilst there I received 3 promotions and was considered to be an industry expert in my special fields, I left Esso and started up a number of engineering companies, and then a coal mining drilling and a directional drilling equipment company making the World's most advanced directional drilling system that I designed and manufactured.


In 1996 I left the coal industry to embark upon a quest to end the reliance on oil and coal, to create cheap power for the 3rd World, along the way I made some important discoveries that I have for 14 years been pursuing. I have lived off my savings for those years, it has cost me at least $1M, to suggest that I have defrauded anyone is outrageous and libel, as said the reality is that I have, and still am donating years of my life to provide a working and mature technology based on real science, not on pseudo science and mumbo jumbo.

I stopped posting here on a regular basis when this thread was taken over by trolls.

At the appropriate time I will provide an update and links to a commerce site where people can purchase products.

In the meantime I would appreciate that people do not go to the vile extent of cowardly accusing or speculating that I am either wrong, a fool, or a fraudster. I use my real name and your comments are therefore capable of causing me harm or hurt. Imagine how you would feel if you used your real name only to find that a search of your name on Google turns up discussions about your character (baseless casual speculations that some might take as accusations).

Mr. Hardcastle, I thought that I had read somewhere that you were a geologist.  I stand corrected.

I am afraid that Pandora's Box cannot be resealed.  You have made a number of extraordinary claims that you have not substantiated.  Once you made those claims public, you gave the public the right to review them.  Ideas that are sound hold up to scrutiny.  Ideas that are flawed don't hold up to scrutiny.  It's not somebody else's fault that various of your ideas haven't panned out.

@MarkE,


Again you choose to make comments you assume are valid, you do not and cannot know all that is going on behind the scenes, nor do you have a right to know. I will reveal all when I choose to.


I will make one concession, the first batch of Quenco did not operate as predicted, but the work and research is ongoing and I am more than happy with where I am. You can choose to call me a failure but that is nothing more than either your prejudice or malice showing.


In any case what does it serve you to make a smear on my name saying without actual facts to support your stand, that my ideas have not panned out?


I can say to you my work has been reviewed by a panel of scientists (some 5 professors and the head of the school of Physics) at a reputable Australian university and it was not found wanting, of course they were privy to all the facts. This statement is 100% true but you may choose to say I am lying.


My final statement on this is that if you want to call me a liar at least have the guts to publish your full name and email.

It matters not what goes on behind the scenes or in someone's imagination.  Once claims are made they are either supported by credible evidence or they are not.  There is nothing wrong with people evaluating available evidence, or the lack thereof once a claim has been made.  If you have a hard time with that, then you should have waited to make your claims until such time as you were able and prepared to substantiate them.

Since when did objective evaluation become a thing of malice?  Do you suffer a persecution complex?  Again, you made claims that you could not substantiate and still have not substantiated.  There are very good reasons to believe that you will never be able to substantiate the idea that on both sides of a very thin material you drive heat towards the center of the material, and on top of that, the heat converts into electricity that you can have perform work elsewhere.  That amounts to not just one but several extraordinary claims.  I am not aware of any substance you have shown for any of those claims.  If you could deliver on just one of your claims that would be a very big deal.

As I have yet to see any reputable third party validate any of your claims, I think it is quite fair to state that your ideas have not panned out.  Again, why the persecution complex?  Why is this about you personally?  an idea stands up or it doesn't.

Publish or perish.  You can say what you want about unnamed persons engaging in unspecified activities and arriving at unspecified conclusions all day long.  That is not how science operates.  science is transparent:  A hypothesis is subjected to falsification efforts.  If all reasonable efforts at falsification fail, then the hypothesis is held true.You put yourself in a pickle when you announce extraordinary claims but fail to supply supporting evidence.  If you were to have made a great discovery then bully for you.  If you expect rational people to believe your claims then you need to back those claims with appropriate evidence.
Quote


My final statement on this is that if you want to call me a liar at least have the guts to publish your full name and email.
There is that persecution complex thing raising its ugly head again.  Just because the available evidence weighs against you doesn't mean that people who recognize that are calling you a liar.  It means they, me included, are saying that you are wrong until and if you ever produce strong evidence for your extraordinary claims. 

If you don't know what the 'E' in MarkE is for or my email address then you have not been paying attention.

Well, Overunity.com is a pure peer-reviewed science blog with more than half dozen nobel prize winners claiming the "truth" ?
Other people might say that ou.com is a special forum for collective mythical misunderstanding of relativistic electrodynamics.
Lately some threads ended up in a Kindergarten of grown up "skeptics" trying to discredit whatever somebody dared to claim.
Do we need a forum for that ?

Strong evidence for something, even an extraordinary claim stands on its own.  No one can bring serious question upon that which has strong evidence in its favor.  What I often see are extraordinary claims with little or no supporting evidence at all.  I find it curious that there are many who implore upon the community to think creatively which is important, then turn around and and ask people to give up critical reasoning.  Breakthroughs don't happen on wishes.  They aren't stopped by critical thinking.  Critical thinking is a very important part of the discovery process.  Setting critical thinking aside hobble's one's ability to separate fact from fiction.  Fictional claims to breakthroughs may make pleasant fantasies, but do nothing to better the world.

It's funny how people fabricate reasons they are not doing something.  Anyone who actually reads this thread end-to-end will see that the vast majority of Philips postings could be expressed as "Wait and see" and "I am right why question me".   It's pretty easy to see how that quickly runs out of steam without resorting to "It was the Trolz who kept me from being here"

If "never" is an appropriate time then that's probably one of the most likely predictions you've made.

Saying "This is be here on day X" or "I will have millions of dollars before month Y" does make you at least WRONG.  Saying it year after year is evidence that you are a fool or a fraudster.  I get that somehow you don't have much more than high-school level maths (or a ridiculously narrow subset above that) but considering how often you want to be respected on your credentials it's interesting how quick you are to discard other peoples.

Either met expectations increase your odds of being correct or they don't.  I expect someone who's wrong, a fool, delusional or a fraudster to make many predictions and meet none of them.  Hence the likelihood of you being one of those three must increase with every failure.  Ergo such accusations are not baseless.  QED.

I don't know what possessed him to think that he would get a big temperature drop through a very small distance into the middle of something.  It would really have been something if he had first observed something like that happening instead of just hypothesizing that it would happen.  Unless he has completely spent out his retirement nest egg, I doubt we have seen the last of Mr. Hardcastle.

He claims to have observed it on some other device.  People here have had all sorts of ideas as to the mechanism, which are hard to determine if they coincide with Phillips ideas chiefly because Philips ideas are poorly described and he doesn't really explain much.

For me I'm a mathematician and I've read over a fair bit of the work regarding information theory and Maxwell Demon-like devices and I'd say that there's little reason to believe that one could construct such a device.  Philips handwaving argument was that this is a *quantum* effect and so is immune to objections.  My counter is that such a device could be turned into a kind of computation device one that could break some of the known limitations on quantum computing devices.  So by extension it's "quantumness" can't solve the inability to create a MD device.
