the above discussion;
however, before we move on to the engines, let's visit the fantasy land
of "What Might Have Been" and see who, as the result of the suppression
of the new technology discussed in this manual, has likely lost what.
In this fantasy land, the
postal system actually
delivered inquiries about the engineering and licensing of the patents
resultant the advertising and engineering information packages I
- In reality I've
never received any inquiries
about licensing and very few inquiries about the engine's engineering
none of these substantive.
Still more incredible, in
fantasy land, I received
phone calls from interested engineers and manufactures concerning the
their licensing and relevant engineering in response to the advertising
- I did receive one
phone call from a prison
inmate and another from a machine tool manufacture. The last seemed to
terminate oddly, and I could never successfully follow it up.
That is, in the fantasy
land of "What Might
Have Been" I had viable lines of communications.
Let's further speculate
that small manufactures,
tool and die shops, engineering development companies and talented
intent on starting new companies, licensed exclusive chunks of the
and pump patent monopolies and these licensees' successfully developed
and marketed the engines and pumps of their licenses.
Let's now scale the
beneficiaries of the above
scenario in this "What Might Have Been" land.
Being the [patents]
inventor, owner and licensor,
I would have in time become "little rich" - using the Ross Perot scale
of wealth - and the licensees would have become rich to extremely rich.
However, its the banking
industry that would
have gained the greatest wealth from the new technology's
These are the
initially financing the various licensees, the commercial banks
the capital to build, expand and equip the licensee's factories, and
ubiquitous "personal" banking establishment in its various embodiments.
The later supplying
checking and savings services,
along with home and car mortgages for the employees of the new
They would also be servicing
the retail, service, and construction businesses' expansions to meet
demands of the increased employment generated and seeded by the new
monopoly protected industries.
Let's speculate further
that some of the successful
licensees of the inventions were located in Lorain county Ohio area,
I lived when I filed for the patents and where I'm still living at this
The new jobs that would
have been created would
certainly be most welcome to the large mass of auto workers who
now, in 1997, have suffered permanent layoff with the closing of local
auto assembly lines.
A lesson to learn from
our visit to the land
of "What Might Have Been" is that inventors with successfully exploited
inventions create new prosperity.
Let's leave the land of
"What Might Have Been"
