Being alive at the end of the twentieth century here on planet Insanity has afforded us a few special privileges in the observance of human history. We’ve seen the birth of the microprocessor, the creation of the internet, and other technological marvels that have vastly improved the quality of the human condition for billions of people.
Unfortunately, even with all of our modern technological advancements, there’s still a huge number of people living in extreme poverty. Most of the poverty can be directly linked to a lack of cheap and abundant energy. According to the IEA, “Modern energy services are crucial to human well-being and to a country’s economic development; and yet globally 1.2 billion people are without access to electricity and more than 2.7 billion people are without clean cooking facilities. More than 95% of these people are either in sub-Saharan African or developing Asia, and around 80% are in rural areas.”
Even in many places with access to power, it’s not cheap enough or abundant enough to lift the population above the poverty line. Access to energy is the defining limit on the ability of any given population to pull itself out of poverty by increasing its productive capacity.
All real wealth comes from the ground. Wealth starts as raw materials that are transformed by human intervention into usable goods that improve the quality of the human condition. Extracting and transforming resources from the planet takes a tremendous amount of energy. The cheaper and more abundant the energy resources at our disposal, the cheaper and easier it is to extract and transform resources; which ultimately means cheaper and more abundant goods and services for all of humanity.
For most of human history, the energy to transform resources has come from our own manual labor, the leverage of simple manual tools, and of course – fire. Even today, we live in what could still broadly be categorized as the combustion age. We use combustion to produce the vast majority of energy on the planet, and it’s still by far the cheapest means of producing energy yet available to man. We burn coal and oil to power our homes and factories, we burn gasoline to power our cars and planes, we burn crude oil to power our tankers and shipping; it’s all a big bloody burning mess.
Numerous wars and insurrections have been fought over the control of energy resources, and all the while, the power grid acts as a control grid that forces massive swaths of people to herd together into compact concrete jungles. The human condition on planet Insanity is so intimately linked with the production of power that we use the same word to describe everything from politics to finance to the performance of an engine – Power.
Imagine what the planet would look like if every person had access to a compact generator that was capable of providing enough energy to power a small factory, while requiring no fuel, producing no pollution, requiring virtually no maintenance for decades, and being portable enough to fit in a small vehicle. It’s hard to fathom because the potential for invention and mobility becomes nearly limitless. People could live comfortably in the middle of the ocean or in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness, it wouldn’t make a bit of difference. Homes could be flying recreational vehicles that never have to land. Cars could be airplanes and airplanes could be transformed into space vehicles. With such an invention, we could even colonize the inner planets of the solar system.
With such an invention, the power grid becomes obsolete. Humans become untethered to the entire utility grid, water and sewage included. Water could be pulled from the air or desalinated from the oceans. Trash and sewage could be incinerated on demand. Unlimited personal power brings with it virtually limitless potential. Unlimited personal power brings with it virtually limitless freedom.
I’m telling you now that such an invention exists, and in the next year or so, it’s going to change the face of humanity forever.
Dr. Randell L. Mills, a Harvard trained medical doctor, who developed this generator and the physical theory behind it, will be remembered throughout the remainder of human history as the single greatest being to ever have lived. A billion trillion years from now, people will still be discussing his theories and his invention. Mills invention is no less transformative than the discovery of fire. It’s a far greater achievement than the combustion engine or the telephone.
In one fell swoop, Mills will have overturned the standing theories of physics, dismantled the power grid, put an end to virtually all air pollution, put an end to poverty, put an end to wars over energy resources, opened up the entire planet to human habitation, put a serious dent in the ability of politics to control people, and saved limitless lives in the future due to a lack of power.
To be alive at the same time as Mills is a cosmic treat. The man is a living legend that has yet to be recognized. Like all great transformative scientists before him, academia has viciously attacked him, his theories and his company, on both a personal and professional level. Mills is truly the modern day Galileo. Like Mills, Galileo was viciously attacked by academia for his ideas, even though they are basis for all modern science today, to the point where Galileo spent the last days of his life under house arrest for scientific heresy.
Here’s what mainstream science has had to say about Mills and his work. I feel compelled to copy and paste this here for posterity, because once Mills’ generator hits the market, these comments are sure to be flushed down the memory hole. Brilliant Light Power (formerly Black Light Power) is the name of Mills’ company that’s producing the generator and doing the research. The following is taken from Brilliant Light Power’s wiki page, which Brilliant Light obviously has no control over (think about that for a minute, a company that’s prohibited from editing it’s own wiki page highlights just how terrified academics are of Mills and his theories):
Robert L. Park
Since 1999 Robert L. Park, emeritus professor of physics at the University of Maryland and a notable skeptic, has been particularly critical of BLP. In 2008 Park wrote:
“BlackLight Power (BLP), founded 17 years ago as HydroCatalysis, announced last week that the company had successfully tested a prototype power system that would generate 50 KW of thermal power. BLP anticipates delivery of the new power system in 12 to 18 months. The BLP process,discovered by Randy Mills, is said to coax hydrogen atoms into a “state below the ground state”, called the “hydrino.” There is no independent scientific confirmation of the hydrino, and BLP has a patent problem. So they have nothing to sell but bull shit. The company is therefore dependent on investors with deep pockets and shallow brains.” – Park
In 1999, Princeton University’s physics Nobel laureate Phillip Anderson said of it, “If you could fuck around with the hydrogen atom, you could fuck around with the energy process in the sun. You could fuck around with life itself.” “Everything we know about everything would be a bunch of nonsense. That’s why I’m so sure that it’s a fraud.”
Michio Kaku, a theoretical physicist based at City University of New York, adds that “the only law that this business with Mills is proving is that a fool and his money are easily parted.” and that “There’s a sucker born every minute.”
While Peter Zimmerman was chief arms-control scientist at the State Department, he stated that his department and the Patent Office “have fought back with success” against “pseudoscientists” and he railed against, among other things, the inventors of “hydrinos.”
Forbes attacked him, saying, “This case has many things in common with other failed new energy technologies, including a charismatic leader who generates lots of press, claims of academic validation and criticism of expert skepticism, ample fundraising, and frequent reports of interest from potential buyers. What you don’t find are actual ongoing operation of a power plant outside of demonstration models controlled by the promoter.”
The IEEE attacked him, calling him a loser. And of course, countless internet trolls have attacked him and his company over all the scientific forums scattered across the internet. People have been banned simply for posting about Mills and his theories on sites like physicsforums.com and the Reddit science boards. You can’t even discuss his theories on the major science forums without risking an immediate ban.
Academics typically don’t even bother commenting on theories that have no scientific merit, so when you see this level of vitriol over Mills’ theories, it stands to reason it’s being driven by fear, not by a genuine motivation to seek the truth.
I’ve stated numerous times on this site over the past decade that modern physics is fundamentally flawed. It is not tied to reality. Mills theory takes physics back to its roots. It does away with all the imaginary particles and nonsense that make up the basis of quantum mechanics. Mills theory is based on closed form classical physics, which treats the electron as singular entity that can be modeled and calculated in precise detail. Mills theory allows for the precise calculation of molecular shapes and bond strengths, and will transform the way material sciences are conducted in the future.
Taking away all the imaginary particles and physics demystifies quantum mechanics. With Mills’ theory, theoretical physicists are no longer needed, and their positions as the high priests of science are directly threatened. It’s little wonder they hate Mills so much. Eventually the theoretical people will be shunted to the side like most religions have been today. Make no mistake, theoretical physics is a religion, not a science. It’s incredibly hard to change people’s’ religious view points since they aren’t based on evidence or logical reasoning.
To put Mills work in perspective, the Tokamak ITER fusion reactor has had 14 billion dollars of public funding thrown at it with no results to show for it. Further, to quote wiki, “the ITER is not designed to produce electricity, but made as a proof of concept reactor for the later DEMO project.” So 14 billion just to build a proof-of-concept.
Mills has taken less than 100 million of private investment capital over less time than the ITER to go from theory, to concept, to design, and now on to actual power production, with less than a tenth of the resources. Further, the ITER will obviously be abandoned after Mills generator goes into production, resulting in 14 billion dollars of public money being flushed down the toilet to feed the pocket books of academics and state contractors. The academics and contractors are the real scam artists in this melodrama. Perhaps that’s another reason they attack Mills with such ferocity, they are having a bit of Freudian projection going on within themselves.
So let’s talk a little bit about the generator itself. In simple terms, it works by reacting a very tiny amount of hydrogen with a catalyst and then exposing that reaction to an electrical discharge. When the hydrogen, catalyst and electrical discharge combine, the hydrogen atoms shrink, releasing a tremendous amount of energy in the process. Using Mills process, a gallon of water has the same energy potential of around 2000 gallons of gasoline. The amount of hydrogen needed is so small that the generator can pull the hydrogen it needs from water in the surrounding air. This enormous release of energy is then used to basically form the filament of a carbon light bulb.
The carbon light bulb glows so brightly from the heat that it reaches the equivalent brightness of over 2000 suns, with the potential to go even higher in the future. The light bulb is surrounded by an array of special solar cells called concentrator solar cells that are able to harness the energy from this enormously bright light source. These special solar cells already exist and are in use in solar farms around the world today.
Mills is projecting his initial generators to produce around 150 kw of power, with the potential for much higher amounts in the future, and the ability to chain multiple units together to provide huge amounts of power. He projects around 600 or so dollars per unit in materials costs to produce the unit, with the unit weighing far less than a conventional gasoline engine at around the same size. He also says production of the units can be scaled up to near infinite capacity, allowing a tremendous number of these units to be produced for next to nothing, using the same format as current LED production uses today.
Mills already has the “light bulb” portion of this generator fully prototyped and working. Obviously that’s the hard part since the rest of the parts for the generator already exist from off-the-shelf suppliers. Mills is projecting production units to be ready for delivery by the second half of 2017, with a fully prototyped working generator ready for field testing by the first half of 2017. Once Mills rolls out that first generator, be prepared for a monumental media shit storm to hit the public.
You can read the latest press release from Brilliant Light Power here, and watch the “light bulb” in action below.
I’ve been following BLP closely for nearly a decade now. I’m convinced Mills is the real deal. Contrary to what Forbes claims, numerous independent labs have verified his claims. He’s obtained funding from some of the wealthiest people on the planet, and he’s got a highly skilled team of engineers backing him. He doesn’t need any more investment capital so he’s got no reason to lie. Several university labs and independent investigators have replicated and validated Mills work:
- Rowan University’s report
- Rowan University’s report II
- UNC Asheville’s report
- University of Illinois report
It’s also worth taking a look at Brilliant Light’s board of directors. These people don’t strike me as the type of people who are willing to throw their lives away over fraud charges:
H. McIntyre Gardner’s profile from Bloomberg:

And let’s not forget Mills, who has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Chemistry, summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Franklin & Marshall College, and a Doctor of Medicine Degree from Harvard Medical School. He also did graduate engineering coursework at MIT.
At this point, it doesn’t matter what anyone may say about him. He’s going to market, and he’s going to change the world.
If you’d like to learn more about the backstory to Mills incredible scientific achievement, a book on the subject was recently released by one of his former employees.
Pretty crazy update from BLP today.
They refactored the SunCell to use dual liquid silver metal injectors for the electrodes, which solved the problem of the reaction being so strong that it was blowing holes through solid tungsten electrodes in just a few seconds.
What’s pretty crazy is they are reporting that they can actually shut the power off to the electrodes and the EM pump; yet the reaction will continue in a self-sustaining manner. You can actually see this take place in the video.
BLP states, “It is predicted that with sufficient silver vapor pressure, the power will persist by a self-sustaining hydrino reaction. Moreover, as designed, when the cell is operated as a silver boiler, the EM pump power may be terminated as well such that the parasitic load is zero except for the power consumed in electrolysis of water to provide the hydrogen fuel. In fact, the power did persist at the same level for long duration after the ignition power was terminated (See sections of the run indicated by the ignition-off video captions).”
Here’s a look at the reactor:
I just read through the latest BrLP presentation event notes and found their current planned development and production timeline. They are projecting the commercial units to produce 100 kW of power.
BrLP has contracted with Columbia Tech to have them do the prototype and manufacturing workups. CT’s Chief Technology Officer is projecting initial field testing of prototype units to take place in 6 months, with pilot commercial units available 6 months after initial field testing completes. Phase 1A design began on November 1st.
Masimo Semiconductor is responsible for creating the commercial photovoltaic converter comprising a denser receiver array of concentrator multijunction photovoltaic cells that will wrap around the black-body light source. Masimo’s Head of Business Development is projecting the photovoltaic array to be ready for the prototype field tests on time.
Looking at the slide notes from Masimo, they are projecting 15.5kW output for the first prototype, and 28.5kW for the second prototype.
Here’s Masimo’s published timeline:
-Week 1: July 27, 2016…. Masimo Semi currently under TPV Cell contract and drawings
-Week 10: Oct 19, 2016…..Masimo Semi currently under gDRA prototype development contract
-Week 14: Nov 4, 2016…..1-Junction Cells on GaAs & InP complete
-Week 16: Nov 18, 2016….gDRA Prototype 3-D model complete
-Week 24: Jan 13, 2017….gDRA Prototype (1-J) Single TRU complete
-Week 28: Feb 17, 2017…. 2-Junction Cells on GaAs or InP complete (requires contract)
-Week 40: May 7, 2017….gDRA Prototype (2-Junction Cells) complete (requires contract)
So looking at the notes, Jan 13, 2017 is a big day because that’s the day the first geodesic Dense Receiver Array will be completed (gDRA). The gDRA is the photovoltaic dome that wraps around the black body light source. Once that’s done, we could see a self-sustaining prototype generator produce power for the first time not too long after that. So perhaps a fully working prototype will be wheeled out for a public demo sometime near the end of January or in February.
Brilliant Light Power (BrLP) released video of their October 26th Industry Day, which I just discussed above.
Video 1: Colin Bannon, Chief Technology Officer for British Telecommunications, discusses BT’s energy usage and their desire for a clean source of power. [BT is an absolutely massive telecom corporation, with a market cap of around 36 billion. They are about half the size of Time Warner to put them in perspective.]
Video 2: Kert Davies, Executive Director of ClimateInvestigations.org, discusses energy production and global warming (feel free to skip this one.)
Video 3: Dr. Randell Mills gives a complete overview of how the SunCell works and the latest test data.
Video 4: Dr. Peter Jansson of Bucknell University speaks on the independent validation of the SunCell system.
Video 5: John DeCarlo of Columbia Tech discusses how their applied engineering team is working with BrLP on the prototype of the reactor assembly, as well as helping plan for mass production.
Video 6: Brad Siskavich of Masimo Semiconductor discusses their work on the photovoltaic cells that will produce power from the SunCell reactor. This is a pretty interesting lecture that’s worth watching. He’s projecting they shouldn’t have too much trouble obtaining a 100 kWs from the SunCell in the future, while their initial prototypes will produce around 10 to 30 kWs.
Video 7: BrLP’s Dominic Jones discusses their long term market strategy.
Brilliant Light put out a new press release yesterday detailing the advisory board that will be working to bring their virtually-free energy generator to commercial launch next year.
December 13, 2016 04:30 AM Eastern Standard Time
CRANBURY, N.J.(BUSINESS WIRE) – The Advisory Board consists of senior industry executives and includes Colin Bannon from BT, Bill Maurer from ABM Industries, Ray Gogel, former President of Current Group and US Grid Co., Matt Key, CEO of Everynet and three additional executives from Telecoms, Finance and Legal professions.
“We searched extensively to identify advisors that can help us answer some of the big questions to support our SunCell® commercial launch next year” said Dr. Randell L. Mills, Founder, President and CEO of Brilliant Light Power, Inc. “This is a team of senior executives from future customers, partners and advisory groups that will help us shape what we offer and how we offer it as we prepare to go to market”.
Bill Maurer, SVP from ABM Industries Energy division said “it’s a great opportunity to be part of the team that will launch the technology that will change the way we think about energy in the future”
Matt Key, CEO of Everynet said “Brilliant Light Power has put together a very sophisticated advisory group and they have given us some big questions to consider. The SunCell® technology is an incredible invention and we all look forward to helping the Company in achieving its full potential by transforming the worlds energy markets as we know them”
The Advisory Board will meet monthly and will be advising Brilliant Light Power on its the commercial offerings, launch markets, potential customers and organizational structure the Company will employ to deliver them.
BrLP just released a new video today of the SunCell operating above 3000° C in a commercial design. The camera attenuation was up to a factor of 10,560 times to avoid saturation.
Even small increments above 3000° C drastically increase the final power output of the generator because the spectrum shifts more to the right, allowing the TPV cells to harness more of the energy.
Latest press release from BrLP
BrLP has achieved automated control of the molten silver levels of the reservoirs of the dual molten metal injectors of its SunCell®. BrLP has also achieved automated control of the SunCell’s® thermal profile. These were the two gating items to a closed commercial SunCell® that can be deployed for field trials of thermal applications followed by electrical unit deployment with further photovoltaic converter development. The video of an excerpt of an electromagnetic pumping test shows the left reservoir overfilled at pumping initiation. The pumping rates automatically adjusted to establish and maintain matching relative levels and caused the molten streams to intersect at the center of the reaction cell chamber. BrLP is optimizing the designs and integrating this technology as it builds the first thermal field trial unit. The photovoltaic cells and cooling technology of the photovoltaic converter have been designed and are in the initial testing phase.
Now that they have automation that allows them to run the cell in a closed system, a prototype generator is very close indeed.
New paper submitted for journal publication: Power Determination and Hydrino Product Characterization of Ultra-low Field Ignition of Hydrated Silver Shots. [PDF]
Mills presented at the Society for Cable & Telecoms Engineers Energy 2020 conference in Denver, CO. on September 12, 2017. The audience consisted of leading Operating Executives from across the Cable industry. Dr. Mills’ presentation is available in PDF format here.
An updated production timeline was published in the presentation. Presently, BrLP plans to have units in field testing in the 2nd half of 2018, and a commercial launch in the 2nd half of 2019.
Here’s a short clip of a continuously running hydrino reactor. The work to integrate this reactor into a water bath and solar cell type generators is ongoing.
They also have a working spherical reactor vessel:
They have a stable reactor core capable of boiling water indefinitely in a sustained reaction. The run time of the reactor is only limited by the thermal rating of the water tank. They are able to maintain the same system temperature found in traditional steam turbine generators indefinitely. A later run shows a two hour time lapse video. They are very very close to having a production ready reactor that can be dropped into a steam turbine electrical generation system.
