"Was the fun part just in being where you are not supposed to be?
Yes. There is a definite illicit thrill that didn't last very long. The issues around the UFO thing, as I discovered more and learned more, became much more serious. Eventually it became all about the issue of suppressed technology. I know for a fact that they have antigravity and the basic quantum-physical mechanics of having antigravity imply a free source of energy, getting energy direct from the vacuum. Now to me that would stop all the wars over oil. It would help fight famine and with irrigation. It would be free energy and that is a huge thing.

So the US has have developed an antigravity device?
Yes. Recently, I think two years ago, Boeing Aerospace announced that they were putting $50m (£28m) into investigating antigravity research. For me, the timing was interesting because I think it is something they already have, but it’s not general knowledge and if they were caught they would probably say that it was renegade factions high-up in NASA, high-up in the military and high-up in commerce."

Is antigravity currently limited to the use of ceramic superconductors?

If you call magnetic levitation anti-gravity, then airplanes fly by using anti-gravity too.

Explain that for us who aren't physicists.

Magnetic levitation is just pushing on things to keep them up in the air. You just balance out the force of gravity with another force. Airplanes do the same, they just use another force.

Man, good old days. The nostalgia is awesome.

As for his comments in the article about using image-based rollouts, that's good practice, not bad. There's far too much chance you'll slip up and misconfigure individual machines to be insecure. Granted, some of the homogeneity means "all your eggs in one basket", but consistency everywhere is generally a boon for security. Blank admin password, now that's... Serious Business!

Try taking two magnets and holding them so that they are either N pole to N pole or S pole to S pole. They'll resist being pushed together. That's the principle of magnetic levitation. Use big enough magnets and you can levitate a train. Which is good because when the train levitates, there is no friction so the train is more energy efficient.

No password for some high security stuff? Sounds like they wanted people to break in so they would say credible stuff like:

"They talk about the war on terror and meanwhile they are training people in torture techniques, breaking and entering and close-quarter fighting and these are all little South American dictatorships."

And then in the next sentence reveal themselves as the sterotypical conspiracy wacko:

"And then there is the humanist angle of anti-gravity technology and the 9/11 thing, but that didn’t get very far."

These people do more damage to the public's ability to find the truth because they undermine it by speaking their UFO anti-gravity bullshit in the same breath.

Not that I really care to promote the truth, just I feel a little bitter about being taxed and consistently treated like a little child. I blame my parents.
