John Searl is one of the most controversial figures in Antigravity research, but since beginning his work in the 1940's, he's arguably become "the father of modern Antigravity". His claim is simple: that after a childhood dream showing a rotating set of rollers on a metallic ring, he constructed a device called the Searl Effect Generator (SEG) that seems to produce massive Antigravitational thrust. Searl is one of the cultural icons in the Antigravity movement.


John Roy Robert Searl (born 2 May 1932) is the inventor of the Searl Effect Generator (SEG) and the Inverse Gravity Vehicle (IGV), both are open system (system theory) energy converting devices, utilizing linear motor technology with sets of multi-phased rollers riding on a magnetic bearing. An electrical autodidact, Searl conducted his initial experimental research and development from 1946 to 1956. The SEG successfully generated electricity, but also unexpectedly repelled itself from the earth’s gravity with a powerful lifting force subsequently he was able to control it with the development of the IGV.

A repeating set of simple dreams spanning six years inspired John Searl to build the first SEG prototype. Convinced of their import, he diligently interpreted them, realizing they detailed the principles for creating a uniquely superior electrical generator, yielding massive forces of energy. His first attempts to prove his theory took place as an apprentice employee of BR Rewinds at Grays Inn Road, London. There he gained permission to use the company's facilities and all of the technical resources needed to make the device. In December of 1946, with all of the magnetic components manufactured to his specifications, he assembled the unique generator at his residence at 30 Crawley Rd, Haringey, London, UK.

When Searl first activated his device, the rollers (rotors) began to rotate around the plate (stator), generating a charge-pumping action on an open circuit configuration. At threshold speed, the device maintained its rotation with no additional energy input from the peripheral electromagnets. In the case of the original prototype, however, Searl had not provided a dampening mechanism, which caused a positive energy feedback loop to occur (circuit virtually closed) as the machine charged or ionized the air surrounding it, causing the device to accelerate. Eventually the generator experienced a severe drop in temperature inversely proportional to the increasing electric current as the electrical resistance decreased into lines predicted by the Pinch (plasma physics) effect. The random kinetic energy of the electrons became uniform in motion (physics), directly resulting in very high electron velocity, and thus the SEG quickly achieved superconductivity at extremely low temperatures. In this state, quantum tunneling electrons surged through the generator in the form of unimpeded Cooper pairs, resulting in very high negative potentials at the device's periphery.

Through a process similar to ionization, a pink halo formed about the machine and intense electric fields repelled the surrounding negatively charged air strongly enough to form a vacuum. This vacuum and the geometry of the SEG prevented flashover of the millions of volts generated. The energy levels escalated enormously as the SEG effectively absorbed or converted the ambient temperature and all other environmental sources of the electromagnetic spectrum immediately surrounding the machine into useful electrical power. The process is believed to strip the electron’s kinetic energy by rectifying its normally random motional state in to a uniform state, accelerating it back into the environment, where the electrons regain normal levels of kinetic energy. The SEG's electric fields would then re-attract the surrounding electrons through the relativity positive center of the generator creating a continuous cycle, a process that Prof. Searl has described as an "electron ramjet".

Upon reaching a threshold level of efficiency, the generator’s weight dramatically decreased to a negative state at very cold temperatures. The SEG's mass inertia concurrently also inverted its state which effectively created what may be termed as an anti-gravity machine with superconductivity due to the extreme electrical and spin-orbital rotating magnetic fields. Then most unexpectedly, the SEG promptly shot through the roof of Searl's lodge and was never seen again.

Several more units were made and lost outdoors until he incorporated a dielectric layer to its construction and the practical power generator (SEG) was thus realized.

Prof. John Searl is currently pursuing developmental work again on the SEG, particularly in Thailand and the United States. His efforts center upon a revised prototype of the machine that can be produced more cost-effectively employing a proposed solid-layering manufacturing technique, rather than the powder-pressed original method.
