A visit to the land of "What Might Have Been"

Available space limits 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 disseminated.

- In reality I've never received any inquiries about licensing and very few inquiries about the engine's engineering and none of these substantive.

Still more incredible, in fantasy land, I received phone calls from interested engineers and manufactures concerning the patents, their licensing and relevant engineering in response to the advertising I'd placed.

- 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 individuals intent on starting new companies, licensed exclusive chunks of the engine 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 exploitation.

These are  the investment banks initially financing the various licensees, the commercial banks supplying the capital to build, expand and equip the licensee's factories, and the 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 industries.

They would also be servicing and financing the retail, service, and construction businesses' expansions to meet the demands of the increased employment generated and seeded by the new patent monopoly protected industries.

Let's speculate further that some of the successful licensees of the inventions were located in Lorain county Ohio area, where I lived when I filed for the patents and where I'm still living at this writing.

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" and move on to discussion of the engines.

Oh, bye the way, on or about September 16, 1997, Social Security was notified that I was dead and subsequently Social Security notified the bank where my pension is deposited of my death.

That notification resulted in the freezing of all my accounts at the bank.

As do most pensioners, I live from check to check, and its fortunate I have my checking account and plastic with other banks.

Things now seem corrected, but if all my banking were done at the same bank as my direct deposit, I would have been in desperate straights indeed. 

Hmm.. m do you think its possible someone is trying to suppress this work?
