In my view technology is there but has been shidden by the extreme greed of the whole oil industry, that is the fear that is thrown up that if we ran vehicles on water all the rich nations would come crashing down economically, not really trying to promote conspircy theories but my original point is how long have we been running on a internal combustion engine which the principle has not changed (fuel in, compression, explosion exhaust)out since henry's model T yet a lot of other technolgys have made quatum leaps in development.
It is inconceivable to me that there is some super energy technology out there (e.g., using your example of running vehicles on water) which is being hidden by the oil companies. Not that I don’t believe that they would want to hide it, try to hide it, or even kill to hide it... I just don’t see how they could
hide it. Even if they did... If it was possible to pull it off with our existing associated knowledge and technologies, it wouldn’t be long before some other scientists discovered it all over again... and you can bet that if a car manufacturer got their hands on it, they would produce it in a heartbeat – because it would mean that they would OWN the auto industry.
I also believe that the rich nations would rush to embrace it, because cheap energy would mean lower production costs on everything... and most things are priced according to what the markets will bear, not what they cost to produce, so not only would their markets expand... their profit margins
would go through the roof!
The 100 years of running on the same basic design of the internal combustion engine may seem like a long time... but it really isn’t (I used to think 60 years was a long time... until I reached 60
). Consider how many years it took to get from bronze to steel? How long to go from the bow & arrow to gunpowder & the firearm... and while it’s been refined greatly from the muzzle loading flintlock to the current MiniGun... it’s still the same basic technology of a spark, burning fuel, expanding gas... Just look at the space program where we’re still launching vehicles into orbit using solid fuel boosters rockets that are essentially the same principle that the Chinese discovered over 2000 years ago! I chuckle (and groan) every time I see the ignition sequence of the space shuttle – they light it with a really big sparkler! Where the hell are the anti-gravity units that we were supposed to have by now?!
While microchips & the associated electronic technologies have advanced at an astonishing rate, that’s just because we were able to reverse-engineer the devices we discovered on the extraterrestrial alien spaceships out at Area 51... Yeah, I’m kidding... but the advances of microprocessors, etc., has been an anomaly which took on a life of its own (the new processors allowed them to design the newer processors). It doesn’t normally work like that where (unlike the laws of man) the laws of physics must
be obeyed. It’s true that E=MC2 but it’s really tricky to extract the E from the M with a device that’s small enough to fit on our V
