3.0 out of 5 stars Food for Thought..., 3 Sep 2008
This review is from: Occult Ether Physics: Tesla's Hidden Space Propulsion Systems and the Conspiracy to Conceal It (Paperback)
As a former student of Electrical Engineering and an admirer of the work and life of Nikola Tesla, I felt obliged to engage my curiosity and purchase this particular book.

My first surprise was the thickness of William Lyne's piece of literature.
Any issue of Maxim or FHM magazine has more pages to it, but this aspect did not faze me too much as the author reiterates his work as "this little stick scientific dynamite."

What struck me most about William Lyne's style of writing is how he can compel his reader with facts and knowledge as comprehensively as a scientific journal to then switch to 'tongue-in-cheek' statements without any valid evidence or sources to cite and reinforce such claims.

With quotes such as:

"...as I followed it with my outstretched arms and index finger, and my fellow hot-tubbers oggled in jaw-dropped amazment."

It spoils what could be a well-written critique on the subject of anti-gravity and advanced propulsion. Instead elements of what seems reminiscent of tabloid journalism, seems to prevail.
A keynote to reinforce this is the 'amateurish' drawings and sketches of components, ideas and the explanation theory by Mr Lyne. There are plenty of CAD or graphic design software utilities and packages out there that could display any of the author's needs for illustration.

If you have patience to accept the limits Mr Lyne's writing style, there is a reasonable amount of information and key quotes highlighting great minds and great discoveries than have been suppressed by academia and big corporations in regard to the current monopoly of oil, gas and electricity as such.

In summary, there much in the way of ideas, theory and experiments coupled with information of great scientists and thinkers of both the 19th and 20th centuries contained in this book. There is a wealth of information now that challenges the very foundation of Relativism including the limits placed upon Physics in the forms of the Laws of both Conservation and Thermodynamics. With more scientists and academics challenging this position, William Lyne's book is not of the substance to make it the flagship for this cause. As we wait patiently for that literary 'smoking gun' to finally go head-to-head with Relativism and Quantum Mechanics, 'Occult Ether Physics' makes interesting food for thought.
