Experimental proof cant be debated. We have already shown that some theories on the VTA were wrong and Experiment can very easily prove this. The developmental progress of Floyd Sweet's VTA can be viewed as progressional. This means that as time goes on, with the developmental progress of the VTA, improvements were made. Huge differences from Generation One VTA to Generation Six VTA can be seen. If youre not familiar with the paper "Nothing is Something by Floyd Sweet" then I recommend you have a read: Click Here
We know of Six Generations of the Sweet VTA or Space Quanta Modulator:
The historical date, 19th of May of 1986, is when Floyd "Sparky" Sweet first demonstrated the Revision One Space Quanta Modulator. A following demonstration was given on Saturday the 24th May 1986 at 3pm. People present at this demonstration were Mark Goldes and Daryl Roberts of the ASOP Institute (Funding Sparky at the time). Revision one was in the order of six to 19 watts of output. Revision two, an improvement on the Revision One VTA was in the order of 100 to 110 watts. Lab Notes were taken on Wednesday the 4th June 1986 and Friday the 6th June 1986.
Not a great deal is known about the Generation two Space Quanta Modulator. We have a few pictures that were released by John Bedini to Jerry from keelynet.com. The Generation two VTA consisted of a single Magnet with a big sponge underneath it. It had an Alloy box with lots of taped up, what appeared to be coils inside the box. As far as we can tell, this version of the Space Quanta Modulator was around the 110 Watts output.
Perhaps the most famous generation Space Quanta Modulator of all; Generation Three. This is when the Space Quanta Modulator was renamed to the Vacuum Triode Amplifier by Tom Bearden. A Historical Video was also taken, which is for sale on the Tom Bearden Website. The factual evidence from this video is worth a thousand words. It’s interesting to note, that this video was released in at least two versions. The first version of this video was insightful; the second version which contained a lot more video information was even more insightful.
Consisting of two Magnets, the Alloy Box was done away with, also added was some circuitry and a battery, this generation VTA Seemed to be able to self-support itself once started by the battery. No real facts are known about Generation Three but some good photo graphic evidence does exist.
Thanks to the efforts of Toby Grotz and a short video done by what appears to be a Television Crew possibly for a documentary, the Generation Five VTA was also fairly well documented. Consisting of two Magnets, two Power Coils, two Drive Coils, a Perspex Box and some circuitry this is an excellent visual display of the Geometry of the VTA and gives some insight on how the VTA may have worked. This is the VTA that I believe Floyd had perfected. It’s the Rolls Royce of all the VTA’s to this point.
In a release of Advanced Energy Research Institute, AERI, (14 Devonshire Mews West, London W1N 1FP, Great Britain), Newsletter the last known Generation VTA was displayed. If anyone has a copy of this document Please send me a copy. We know very little about this Generation VTA. It’s Possible that Floyd may have been showing the construction in the video that Toby Grotz was featured in the above Generation Five VTA but this is a bit of speculation on my part.
Floyd "Sparky" Sweet died on July 5th, 1995 of a heart attack, leaving behind a legacy now known as the VTA. The VTA has not been resurrected to this date as far as we know. We are continuing our efforts to replicate the VTA but it’s a long tough road to travel due to so much not being known about the VTA and so much information being flat out wrong. From all our research, we can only make educated guesses on the actual method of operation. We do however have more facts today than we did when we started the project.
