Opinions differ as to the exact mechanisms by which the N machine generates energy. In 1977 Tewari created a minor sensation when he put forth the theory that space is filled with a dynamic medium whose swirling motion is the source of all matter and energy. In his Space Vortex Theory, more fully developed in his 1984 book, Beyond Matter, the Indian engineer inventor postulated that a void lies at the heart of the electron– a void whose high speed rotation within a vacuum could produce energy from space. Tewari’s theory is based on the assumption that the electron has a definite structure, and is not just a homogeneous "droplet of charge."
According to Tewari, the movement of "voids" in the spinning magnetized cylinder of his Space Power Generator liberates free energy out of the space between the machine’s axis and the magnet. He readily admits that this sounds incredible, by the yardstick of known laws of physics. Tewari says he never would have developed his theory had he been trained as a physicist rather than as an engineer, since his ideas differ so radically from conventional physics.
"Tewari’s explanation is perfectly possible," comments DePalma. "He is attempting to conceptualize what’s happening between the atoms and where the energy is liberated."
"My own approach," continues DePalma, "is that space is all around us like the sea of water the fish swim in. The only way you know it’s there is to distort it in some way, and the simplest way to distort space is with a magnet." DePalma maintains that his own conception of magnetism as a distortion of a pre-existent homogeneous field is, "the first new thought on the fundamental nature of magnetism since Oersted." For example, modern science says that energy is a constant substance in the universe, and that the conversion of energy from one form to another will lead to the heat-death of the universe eons from now. In contrast, DePalma says, "My cosmos is an open-ended universe, one in which energy can be evoked from space itself. All energy comes from space," he maintains, "and there are various processes which can release this energy, the simplest of which is lighting a match or rubbing two sticks together."
Suppose you light a candle. The heat in the flame derives from the release of latent heat stored in the wax, according to the textbooks. Nonsense says DePalma. The law of energy conservation is pure assumption, he insists. In his theory, the heat of a lit candle comes from space, and this substrate is slowly consumed by the energy of space flowing through it.
When you drive a car, the heat latent in the gasoline is extracted through burning, which propels the pistons. Right? Wrong says DePalma. His understanding of the process is that the gasoline-air mixture, catalyzed by an electric spark, acts as a "molecular antenna" to release energy from space. Heat energy thus releases or cooks or burns the substance with its evoking it in the first place, producing exhaust as a result.
Likewise, when a magnet is rotated, DePalma theorizes, the electrical current comes from the space through which the magnet is drawing its energy, not from the magnets mechanical rotation.
