I've been noodling around in an extremely strange but just possibly
epoch-making inventor/GUT theorist named Dr Randell Mills, of Blacklight
Power, Inc, whose url is


and who claims to have constructed a classical replacement for QT that, as
a side-effect, yields a strange new power source from hydrogen that he's
patented in Australia and is building gadgets from in the States. Almost
certainly a crackpot or scamster but he seems to have an impressive track
record. A garbled but interesting interview with him appeared in the Dec
97/ Jan 98 ish of that odd/loony magazine *Infinite Energy*, edited by
cold fusion guru (sigh) Dr Eugene Mallove. (I have a snail correspondent
who reads my Australian science book reviews and insists on sending me
xeroxes of stuff like this, which I glance through for the sardonic
amusement of it. Sometimes, as now, I wonder if there might be more to a
particular claim than meets the jaundiced eye.) If the physicists here
have a gander at Mills's site, it'd be nice to hear an informed assessment.

A version of the rambling interview with Mills is on the web at


Dr Mills comes out of it rather better than his hapless interviewer, with
the odd nice facetious jab...
