CLN Editor’s Note: Despite billionaire investor Peter Thiel’s role as a Steering Committee member of the secretive Bilderberg Group, my familiarity with his work and philosophy inclines me to believe that he is not in fact part of the world’s “evil ruling elite,” as so many have implied simply on the basis of his association with Bilderberg. It is important to remember that not all members of the world’s power elite are inherently bad guys who are “in on the conspiracy” and out to enslave humanity, and it is worth at least considering that some may be working from the inside of the global power structure to affect positive change for the betterment of humanity. Agree or disagree with the initiatives backed by Thiel, this author has made an informed decision to give the man the benefit of the doubt. – Alcyone @CLN
Bilderberg Member Invests in Atmospheric Vortex Technology Using Tornadoes
By Susanne Posel | Occupy Corporatism
Peter Thiel, member of the Steering Committee of the Bilderberg Group and former owner of PayPal, has invested $300,000 to Canadian inventor Louis Michaud’s start up corporation called AVEtec which has created a machine that will harness the static energy created by the vortexes generated by tornadoes. The Atmospheric Vortex Engine (AVE) is being supported by Thiel’s Breakout Labs (BL), an outreach of the Thiel Foundation (TF).
According to BL their investment into clean energy with financial support of AVEtec is an attempt “to harness the power of atmospheric vortexes.”
Michaud, inventor of AVE technology stated: “The power in a tornado is undisputed. My work has established the principles by which we can control and exploit that power to provide clean energy on an unprecedented scale. With the funding from Breakout Labs, we are building a prototype in partnership with Lambton College to demonstrate the feasibility and the safety of the atmospheric vortex engine.”
The Thiel Foundation prides itself on promoting freedom by:
• Supporting scientific research and new technologies
• Supporting organizations and individuals that expose human rights and authoritarianism
• Exploration of new ideas without governmental restrictions
AVE can create an artificial vortex and concentrate that energy so that it can be captured for future use. With this technology, the natural occurring static fields of energy could be captured as well. The energy encapsulated by this mechanism is being described as an alternative to energy collected by conventionally accepted alternatives like solar panels. Once vortex energy is converted, it could become a source of electrical energy, powered by the same ideals that Nicola Tesla brought forth earlier this century.
The AVE will capture the mechanical energy produced by a tornado before it can convert itself to heat and dissipate. Because the AVE acts to collect the expansion of the “work”, it can salvage the kinetic energy that is lost to turbines. As a green technology, the AVE is described as a great alternative in the creation of renewable energy that satisfies the Kyoto Protocol because of the potential of providing precipitation, as well as energy.
Scientists working with the AVE hope to develop controlled tornadoes that can be stabilized and then increased for maximum power production. A self-sustaining vortex under controlled circumstances is part of the endeavor that AVEtec seeks to accomplish.
AVEtec is collaborating with Lambton College in Canada to construct and study a prototype with the funds provided by Thiel and Breakthrough Labs.
Research into AVE has been supported by the Canadian government with the purpose of bringing the technology from research to commercialization. The Computational Fluid Dynamics study concluded that an AVE vortex “can generate a vortex flow in the atmosphere much above the AVE and the vortex acts as a physical chimney limiting the mixing of surrounding air into the raising plume of hot air. A parametric study was conducted and provides a good starting point for future designs.”
Thiel has also partnered with Bill Gates and other foundations to supportLightSail Energy, a start-up company dreamed up by a college drop-out. By using air compression to create heated energy, and directing its flow with an air compressor, the stored air can be routed to buildings and used instead of conventional means of creating energy.
Palantir Technologies (PT), owned by Thiel, provides software that solves “technical problems” like “combating terrorism, prosecuting criminals, fighting fraud and eliminating waste.” While they claim to support open software, they collaborate with the US government to facilitate spying on users of the internet.
PT has worked extensively with In-Q-Tel, and partnered with Thomson Reuters for product development, as well as collaborated with computer scientists who are affiliated with intelligence agencies worldwide.
PT conducts extensive data mining wherein the US government, through these federal agencies and shell corporations, can peep into the private lives of citizens without their knowledge or consent. Where the gaps exist because of bureaucratic red-tape, PT provides comprehensive intelligence, allowing them to see beyond what the law permits.
Another financial research endeavor of Thiel is Blueseed. This is a San Francisco startup corporation that plans to launch a floating city 12 nautical miles off the coast of California. Blueseed will revamp a cruise ship or barge to create the off-shore city. It will sit in international waters and be a metropolis where foreign and American workers can conduct business and theorize new corporations without the pesky need for American work visas.
Blueseed is a concept for “new sovereign nations built on oil-rig-type platforms anchored in international waters — free from the regulation, laws, and moral suasion of any landlocked country. . . They’d be small city-states at first, although the aim is to have tens of millions of seasteading residents by 2050.”
Research into engineerings, science and technology would not be constrained by laws and regulations that are imposed on the mainland. Slated for 2015, the Seasteading Institute expects to have manufactured the first independent city-state guided by international provisions and not responsible to any established country or sovereignty.
Thiel also has his hand in the Singularity Institute, as a member of the advisory board. This is a research foundation advances transhumanism and seeks the “creation of smarter-than-human intelligence benefits society.” At their Singularity Summit, an annual conference, they network with scientists, entrepreneurs, and investors to invent machines that “surpass human ability in new domains” and propaganda media to promote their agenda such as “TIME, NPR, Scientific American, Forbes, Wired, and The New York Times.”
The Singularity Institute employs “research and academic” universities and think-tanks that have “set the agenda for this important project concerning the future of humanity, and we see many opportunities in the future for additional progress.”
