Explores the role that Mr Smith’s background in geology — including his extensive, first-hand knowledge of materials and elements — played in shaping his approach to electromagnetism. Shows how his inquisitive, open-minded examination of the notion of ground led him to re-develop and broaden the concept in an unorthodox, yet manifestly effective way. References his unique conception of the capacitor-transformer (what he called the Ambient Energy Generator) and provides a rare glimpse into the inventor’s most advanced contribution: the solid state product line of power delivery devices. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Title: Who was this Donald Lee, the man who set power free? - And, was there “a method to his madness”, so to speak?


1
Who was thisDonald Lee, the man who set power
free? And, what was the method to his
madness, so to speak?
2
Affectionately known to some as the little Tesla
from Texas little because he was short of
stature, certainly not of creative mental
ability, or strong determination Donald Lee
Smith (1928-2010) was an American petroleum
geologist who devoted his retirement years to
research and invention in electromagnetism. His
dedicated effort on energy capture for power
delivery reached a significant achievement in the
form of a concise, thoroughly thought-through and
refined method. It is exquisitely simple in
fact, deceptively so. As with all great
solutions, once found and explained, it strikes
one as highly obvious1.
1 His work on purely solid state power delivery
devices possibly developed in collaboration
with a friend of his, a professor at the
University of Tokyo is in a class by itself,
yet another cut above.
3
There are two separate and distinct stages in the
process of supplying power to a device or
system. The first is procuring / obtaining the
energy. The second is converting / transforming
this energy into power.
Smith addresses both phases of the procedure,
operating, at all times, in the radio frequency
range. This is an essential aspect of his
method2.
2 Edit on Apr 2, 2018 Two of Mr Smith's
prototypes would appear to stand as exceptions,
which follow a different approach. Both the
rotating shield apparatus (Device 9) and the
so-called 35 Kw Commercial Unit seem designed to
operate throughout at the standard line frequency
of 50/60 Hz.
4
In the first step, if any surplus energy is
required above and beyond that supplied by his
ostensible source he draws it on the fly /
on demand / as needed from the Earths
magnetic- and electrical fields. The method is
straightforward an increase in potential
(voltage) by means of any one of a number of
standard devices from conventional neon sign
transformers (controlled by a regulator / dimmer)
through lab type variacs and laser copier/printer
power supplies to low cost switch-mode neon sign
power adapters.
5
Two side notes need to be inserted right
away First energy is readily available from
the Earth's magnetic- and electrical fields, with
no set limits as to quantity. At radio frequency,
in particular, a gain in potential which is
easily achieved is a gain in energy. Second
This gain in energy is not an indispensable part
of the Smith process. For low power applications
as exemplified in The K4K Challenge, with its
1,000 Watt output target the first step may be
skipped altogether.
6
The second step is the conversion of the energy
obtained into power. It presents an additional
opportunity for gain. Because power is the
quotient of energy over time, it follows that the
shorter the interval that a transfer takes, the
greater the power that the destination device
will receive (from a given / identical amount of
energy). While this is simple high-school
physics, it also happens to be the basis for a
sharp observation on the part of Nikola Tesla,
concerning capacitors (in Teslas time,
condensers, which he contrasted favorably to a
very large gun, capable of hurling a projectile
over a distance of 18 or 20 miles).
A further discussion of this, with additional
references, can be found at powershow.com

Energy Capture 101, slides 106-111, and 117-122

7
Smith employs high amperage diodes to perform,
in a simpler fashion, the function that the
condenser fulfilled in Teslas example. The
diodes allow for one or more sudden drops in
resistance leading into the device being powered,
without compromising the integrity of the
upstream components in the circuit.3 Increased
amperage applied to the available voltage
translates into greater power delivered (from a
given amount of energy available for transfer).

K4K Challenge (Is it Killer-APP Time in
Smith-Tech Land?), found at powershow.com

The inventor is tireless in stressing, over and
over again, that Ohms Law does not apply to
radio frequency systems. He has to, as people
mostly lazy-minded know-it-alls keep trying
to argue that one cant increase amperage without
suffering a proportionate loss in voltage, and
vice versa (i.e., Ohms Law).
Note also that the effect described is not likely
to work with any flow of energy in continuous
or uninterrupted form (conventional DC or AC),
yet its very much an option for a train of
pulses, which are so to speak individual
pellets or batches of energy distinctly
separate from one another. Here the time factor
can be manipulated by the operator, to produce
an increase in power.
9
Discontinuities - The Radio Frequency
Threshold As an old-school scientist with all
the requisite formal knowledge, Smith had a
clear understanding of such notions as
discontinuities and quantum phenomena. In
laymans terms, the idea that the fabric of the
physical universe is not smooth and continuous,
but that it shows break-points or leaps at
apparently random intervals. (Our rational mind
tells us there has to be some sort of a pattern
to these intervals, but it doesnt jump out of
the page at us. At best, we can hope to find it,
in due course). Be that as it may, the leaps
or discontinuities are there. Phase changes, such
as from solid to liquid or liquid to vapor
thresholds, such as from sub-sonic flight to
supersonic flight. (A plane will behave / respond
in markedly different fashion in each of those
environments).
10
For Smith, the threshold of radio frequency was a
manifest case. It constituted a boundary beyond
which electrical phenomena started to behave not
just differently, but much more favorably to
human purposes. He stressed this by repeatedly
stating that Ohms Law does not apply to radio
frequency air-core coil systems. This tied in
with his other oft-cited assertion at radio
frequency the electrons do not travel through the
conductor they encircle it. Therefore, theyre
not subject to the conductors resistance.
In this regard, it is interesting to note that
Gerry Vassilatos elaborate review of Teslas
research into what he called radiant energy
first chapter of the book entitled Secrets of
Cold War Technology reaches a point of
culmination or revelation when Tesla concludes
that for an electromagnetic pulse not to cause
physical pain or discomfort, its duration must
not exceed 50 millionths of a second. Lo and
behold, if one breaks the quantity of one million
into batches of 50, what results is a total of
20,000 batches. In other words, a frequency of
roughly 20,000 pulses (or cycles) per second
what has become identified as the threshold of
radio frequency. (Note also that Dr Lindemann
quotes extensively from this text by Vassilatos
in his very detailed presentation on the work of
Edwin V. Gray, which highlights its similarities
with Teslas methods and circuit designs).

Reading Rocks
Before there was materials science, there was
geology. Smith was, first and foremost, a
geologist. He became interested in
electromagnetism through his work in petroleum
prospecting, whose goal it was let us not
overlook this, as it shows a unity of purpose to
the mans endeavors over the years to help meet
humanitys need for energy. While most others
in his line of business routinely looked upon,
and employed, geology as a mere subsidiary tool
for the task at hand, he proceeded from the
standpoint of the alert scientist and
technologist. It didnt take him long to relate
the highly contrasting levels of magnetic and
electrical flux in various sampling spots on the
Earths crust to the wide range of
characteristics and behaviors that different
materials and elements exhibited with regard to
electromagnetic phenomena.
12
Steeped as he was in chemistry, and fully
acquainted with the concept of catalysis, it
wasnt hard for him to grasp the seeming paradox
of those conjoined twins, electricity and
magnetism, behaving as catalysts for one another
each making the other possible. In his words,
one was never present without the other. It also
seemed highly obvious to him that the behavior of
electricity was similar to that of several other
processes in nature. Like heat and pressure, it
flowed spontaneously from high to low namely,
from an area where negative charges were in high
concentration to one showing lower density of
such charges. It followed that humans could
facilitate flows of electric energy by providing
efficient conduits between points with disparate
levels of concentration.
13
When plotted against his extensive knowledge of
materials, and their abundance or scarcity on the
Earths crust, this viewpoint led him to an
understanding that the concept of ground, in
electricity, was eminently relative. No place
or chunk of material was absolute ground
rather, each of them occupied a certain position
or level on the scale of negative charge
concentration. Given any pair of points, the one
with the lowest concentration played the role of
ground in relation to the other. Energy would
naturally tend to flow toward it.
14
But there was more as materials science
advanced along with the manufacturing of
electronic devices, such as diodes, capable of
effectively separating charges humans had
acquired the ability to purposely create areas of
high concentration of negative charges to serve
as points of departure for such energy transfers,
as well as the reverse areas of low
concentration to act as the receiving end. In
other words people could design their own
ground gradients in the form of electrical
circuits and trigger energy flows through those
circuits to power devices virtually at will.
15
Smith's Ambient Energy Generator /
Capacitor-Transformer in effect, a Universal
Energy Intake Valve brightly integrates and
applies these various insights. It receives
power on its input plate (D), in the form of
positive electrical charges (radio frequency DC
pulses). This creates the conditions for its
output plate (E) to draw the equivalent amount
from the Ambient in the form most favorable to
his intended purposes negative charges. As
these are discharged to ground through the
primary coil of a transformer whose secondary
coil powers the load the Ambient delivers
additional charges to the output plate.
Nov 2018 - This slide edited to correct name of
input plate from A to D.
16
The Ambient must do this in order to keep the
system in a state of dynamic equilibrium, in
which the mandatory voltage parity between the
plates is maintained, despite the fact that
charges are being consistently drained from
the output plate. The device cunningly uses
diodes to separate charges, and, specifically,
to designate the "E" plate as the area with the
highest concentration of negative charges. From
there, the energy is only allowed to reach
"conventional" ground (lower concentration) by
flowing through the primary coil of a transformer
whose secondary, isolated, coil powers the load.

17
Language / Terminology As is frequently the case
with inventors, Smith developed a certain, highly
personal, glossary or lexicon to refer to the
various items, events and phenomena he was
describing. Among the terms it included were
flipping, cycling, disturbing, and
dislodging of electron pairs or doublets.
These last he saw as electrons in their natural
non-ionic state. (In coil systems, magnetic
and amperage are one package. This suggests that
electrons in their natural non-ionic state, exist
as doublets). Once disturbed, each of the
components of the doublet will emit a charge
one, electric, the other, magnetic. The
electrical charge has virtually no value, Smith
firmly states, using another of his trademark
expressions it dies a heat death in short
order.
18
The magnetic charge, however, more than
compensates. In the form of magnetic resonance,
it is oblivious to Ohmic resistance and can
travel unrestricted for great distances. When
these units of magnetic flux are deflected
(another Smith-ism, which roughly translates as
intercepted at 90 degrees), they change to
electrical flux, which is eagerly harvested by
the conducting components of the system,
strategically placed to perform energy intake
(think of a transformer's secondary coil). Each
deflected and harvested charge-let is instantly
replaced by another, which promptly suffers the
same fate. The point of deflection becomes the
epicenter of a vortex that draws in and conveys
forward, now in electrical form millions of
these minute charges, in much the same way that
a water pump moves water. Call it Turbocharged
Electromagnetic Induction. On Steroids.
19
The Patriot, the Self-Made Man, the Lover of
Nature and Humanity Smith was a patriot who had
served his country in several wars. Yet, the
government of that selfsame country thumbed its
nose at him by refusing to issue him patents for
his discoveries and innovations. (He repeatedly
showed to the U.S. Patent Office that their
so-called justification that they were not in
the business of issuing patents to over-unity
devices was a lame excuse, given that such
well-known devices as dynodes and Farnsworths
multipactor were clearly over-unity and had
been issued patents). He was also a child of the
Depression, having been born in 1928, just before
that tsunami hit. This would go a long way toward
explaining his marked reluctance to give away the
fruits of his labor. To him, everything had
required sustained effort and / or willingness to
confront mortal danger (as in war).
20
Why should he have to give away as some
attendees at his presentations impatiently
demanded the discoveries he had earned through
long hours of dedicated work, not to mention a
strong determination to push on with his
research, in defiance of all the experts
(so-called) telling him to forget about it,
that this thing would not happen? On the other
hand, he was a religious man, and as many a
scientist deeply enamored with nature. He also
had a love for humanity, the sentiment that Plato
called agape, as distinct from erotic love.
From this standpoint, he passionately
emphasized that his invention removed any
conceivable justification for war over resources.
With plentiful, cost-free energy, water could be
freely desalinated and / or purified, as well as
pumped over long distances.
21
This meant that vast tracts of unexploited land
could be brought into production. No place on
Earth need be arid. No person on Earth need go
hungry. Together, we could turn our home planet
into the land of milk and honey. He thus charted
a delicate course between violating the
commitments he had entered into with his
industrialist partners something he wasnt
prepared to do and potentially allowing his
discovery to be lost upon his passing, which he
was just as determined to do his utmost to
prevent. The result was his seemingly erratic
dissemination of tidbits of information here and
there, made even more difficult to interpret by
the devastating cerebrovascular accidents he
suffered, which progressively constrained his
ability to communicate.
22
The Teacher as Master / Initiator A saying
attributed to Confucius states Every truth has
four corners as a teacher I give you one corner,
and it is for you to find the other three. It
is fairly apparent that, like many a masterful
tutor before him, Smith rejected the idea of
dictating solutions in a follow-the-steps
fashion. Quite the contrary he perceived the
function of the teacher as that of a guide, whose
role it was to ask pertinent questions, while
providing hints and orientation from his position
of greater experience and formal knowledge. We,
the students, were required to take it from
there. Resorting to everything from further study
to creative imagination, we'd have to apply our
own mental efforts to find the solution to a
problem posed, or to fully grasp new, disruptive,
concepts.

Addendum March 1, 2018 Responding to a request
from a dedicated reviewer of our materials, we
include the two links on this slide to show that
the inventor already had under his belt the solid
state technology at the time of his third major
public appearance, in 1996.
96 Tesla Symposium - Part 17 Q You mentioned
that your latest device is wouldnt be
recognizable from that one (points to Device
3) A Yes you wouldnt if you saw it, you
wouldnt you wouldnt think it does anything Q
Well, there must be something that is the same
from that board looking at that board right
there the coils, perhaps? A No, theres no
coils in the Q The capacitors A Theres no
capacitors. Q (laughs, as in You've got to be
kidding me!) A I told you you wouldnt
recognize it, but it becomes obvious so quick
once you saw it and I explained it to you. Right
now its like trying to explain color TV to
American Indians back in eighteen and fifties.
But, uh, its not that complex. The same rules
that apply to whats happening here (indicates
Dev 3) told me that you could do this the other
way. So I built some of them and they worked the
first time, absolutely perfect. And I can tell
you that you can have hundreds of thousands of
volts out of a tiny little matchbox. And at high
amperage.
https//www.youtube.com/watch?vrJZvl9ikEyYt242
96 Tesla Symposium - Part 14 A (On the
Internet) theres disclosure enough that you can
do what Im doing here, and I might tell you that
what youre seeing here is obsolete. Im a couple
of light years farther down the line than what
youre seeing here, but Im doing what youre
seeing because most people think that you have to
have something where you just turn a wall switch
on, and thats it. And thats to accommodate the
wall switch crowd that Im doing (this). The
thing is actually presently a solid state device
which is very small and does al the things that
these things do, but its a solid state device.

Addendum March 27, 2018
OK, see that pyramid there? The people in Egypt
there, and their pyramids back several thousand
years before Christ had energy devices, and
what youre seeing there is a photograph of the
energy flux in the area of the pyramid, and its
enormous. And the triangular shape is what
contributes to that. The base material there
would be one type of mineral which has
electrical characteristics, say, of one type
and then the pyramid itself is made of another
type of material which has a different electrical
uh, uh component (means characteristic) and
between the sand which its sitting on and the
pyramid material, which is a different material,
and the triangular shape of it gives us this
energy flux.

Von Däniken built some of the electric light
bulbs that were shown in the pyramids, and they
worked. Its documented in all your information
sources that he actually shows photographs of
electric light bulbs which hes duplicated, which
look exactly like the ones the Egyptians were
building three thousand years ago. So
electricitys been around in useful form for
quite a while. We just didnt understand it.
Were getting to the point where were beginning
to understand it youre not getting something
for nothing, and youre not creating anything.
Youre just simply changing it from one form to
another, magnetic flux to electrical flux and
in that change process from one form to another
you have useful energy Its only when its going
from one form to another that it becomes useful.
And you capture it, just like the water running
down from the mountains back to sea level. In
between, you put a paddle wheel there youve
captured the energy. And this is true of all
forms of energy whether its electrical or
whatever.
