Storyline

John Searl claims he has the solution to our global energy crisis. What's more, he says he's had it for over 60 years. Regarded by many as The Godfather of free energy science, John Searl believes his magnetic generator, the Searl Effect Generator, can save our planet from environmental disaster. So, what if he's telling the truth? The John Searl Story explores this question, as we chronicle the life of arguably the most controversial inventor of the last hundred years. From the childhood dreams that led to his theorem The Law of the Squares, to the mystery tests of his UFO-like levity discs. We analyze Searl Effect technology, hear from believers and from the skeptics, and investigate today's effort to reconstruct John Searl's contentious generator. So, is he telling the truth? You decide. Written by Jon Barratt

Incredible Possibility
27 November 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Not for a moment would one blindly accept the claims made by Mr Searle yet, upon contemplation and consideration of the amount of circumstantial evidence such as the Warminster Mystery which I studied many years ago, and not withstanding that our "current" science doesn't offer a mainstream explanation for the phenomena but does not discount the possibility (Remember, we have far from answered some of the most fundamental questions of nature such as, what is driving the observed universal expansion). I can't on the one hand blindly accept the notion of "Dark Matter" as an explanation and then vehemently deny the possibility that an individual stumbled upon a secret of nature and investigated it with remarkable results. The more concerning issues Where is the open scientific investigation? Where is mainstream media interest in this fascinating documentary? Why is this not being shown in every cinema across the globe? Why are the scientific semi literate quick to attempt to debunk rather than genuinely inquire into the facts of such matters? If this is not true today then history tells us, it soon will be!
