Anywho, you write confusing stuff, but you are right.
they change one thing but dont show the drop in something else... frequency drop etc.

And the clickbank stuff exposes the people who back this stuff.... (or they are just really uneducated on the subject)

"and since the power is voltage times current, it will stay the same. "
Watts = Amps * volts
KW/h = Watts * kilo (1000) per hour.... so yes kw/h is power.

WOW, I should not write about science when I'm sleepy. I was confusing current (charge per unit time) with power (energy per unit time). You are correct indeed about transformers. Also, I never believed there was anything relevant in the actual post; nothing in it sounds actually groundbreaking.

If u want to increase electrical power, what u need is an amplifier, which is also common (and I bet 50x is common in that case), but it isn't typically used for power transmission.

Goddammit, get ur shit straight. U said Kw-h was a unit of power, then u used math to realize it's actually a unit of energy/work. Watt is a unit of power already. If u increase power by 5000%, u're just increasing the rate of energy transfer 50 times, which is just what a transformer does. There's nothing surprising about it except maybe the number.

You're not just increasing the rate of energy transfer, because the extra energy has to come from somewhere.
Increasing the rate of energy transfer isn't what a transformer does. A transformer changes voltage and current, but each will increase/decrease in balance so the power is always the same. If you use a transformer to increase the voltage 50 times, the current will be 1/50, and since the power is voltage times current, it will stay the same.

I did some research on this Jim Murray.
His site is connected, eventually, to clickbank.com , a corporation that seems to make its money by selling people mediocre stuff that they don't need.
People sign up to become "associates", basically to shill these products everywhere. You ever wonder who gets paid to make those comments on youtube and even here? People who sign up for this shit.
This Jim Murray site is one of many similar sites, operated by associates of a company that specializes in selling the writings and lectures of people who claim to have some scientific secrets. I think a lot of these are written and operated by the same person. advancedmotorsecrets.com is almost identical to that Jim Murray one.
These "associates" pitch these various sites and get paid a commission if somebody actually buys the thing.

There are no secrets of Tesla here, it's all one big corporate machine-- And funnyjunk user stadshaug is part of it. Although maybe not, because the rest of his posts aren't consistent with this.

Well, TECHNICALLY you could prove the laws of thermodynamics false. Doubt that it would ever happen, but hey, at one point we thought Newton had discovered everything there is to know about physics. Hell, even Einstein didn't explore the entirety of physics. We could discover, say, absurdly small or absurdly large systems which ignore thermodynamics (which would be consistent with many other historic findings - that is, we discover a rule which works for things human-sized, but then learn they don't quite work when you get too large or too small), which could potentially (read: really impractically) lead to perpetual energy.

The other alternative is to be able to travel to alternate universes (should they exist), and bring in matter from there. We could bring in, say, plutonium or uranium of the desired isotope and dump all of our nuclear waste, leading to perpetual (so long as there are infinite alternate universes) nuclear energy.

Both of these are impractical, nearly impossible, etc. But to say that "no amount of brilliance can break the laws of thermodynamics." isn't necessarily correct. They are observation-based laws, created under the same circumstances which created many laws which have today been proven to be either false (but close to the truth) or conditionally true. It's entirely possible that the laws of thermodynamics are just a really, really, really good estimation.

-ish. I believe it's often a matter of poor wording. You can use energy to get more energy, but you can't duplicate energy, as far as I'm concerned. There are a lot of probable energy sources we haven't tapped into yet, or have even really considered, I bet. Imagine how many unknown sources there were back in Tesla's age. If he found a way to absorb power a lot easier, that could easily be worded as "magnifying power", though maybe not accurate.

Also this

Source -> Power means Source > Power. If you could make Source = Power, wouldn't you magnify power?
#56 - Corndoggeh (11/15/2015) [-]
Well if were going based on the literal use of "power" (Kw/h), then magnifying the power output by 5,000% would essentially mean that current energy plants would only be producing .02% of the energy stored in whatever material is put in. But as I've stated, this is dealing with purely ideal assumptions all over the system to produce a 100% energy input-output system.

On the other hand, if were not talking about literal power and "power" was being misused in the picture above. I would assume that the "power" may more likely be voltage or the "ability to do work". In that case it is possible to increase voltage, probably not by 5,000%, but we already achieve that through transformers. Maybe this design is a more efficient transformer? Or maybe something that can increase current?

Kw/h isn't a unit of power. I don't know what that would be a unit of, exactly. Rate of change in power, maybe? Kw-h is the unit of power, since watts is joules per second the times cancel out and you just get energy, 3.6 megajoules per kilowatt-hour.
Anyway, I've seen this use of "magnifying power" before. They generally have a machine that you put energy into, and the energy output from the machine is somehow 50 times higher. The extra energy doesn't come from anywhere.

look, here's the guy's website. He's just trying to sell those DVDs. If he knew anything at all about Tesla, and what he was saying was true, he would make his findings public for all.
