  Energy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Energy of an object can be in several forms, potential—due to the position of the object relative to other objects; kinetic—energy because of its motion; chemical—due to chemical bonds between atoms that make up the substance; electrical—due to its charge; thermal—due to its heat; and nuclear—due to the instability of the nuclei of its atoms.
In contrast to kinetic energy, which is the energy of a system due to its motion, or the internal motion of its particles, the potential energy of a system is the energy associated with the spatial configuration of its components and their interaction with each other.
Internal energy is the kinetic energy associated with the motion of molecules, and the potential energy associated with the rotational, vibrational and electric energy of atoms within molecules.

 RSS Energy Saving - Radiant Barriers   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Radiant energy is generated by the sun and travels through space and does not create any heat until it strikes and object.
A good example of “radiant energy” is; when you stand in the sun on a hot day, the air temperature is essentially the same in the sun and the shade however, you are a lot hotter in the sun.
Radiant barriers usually consist of a thin sheet or coating of a highly reflective material, usually aluminum, applied to one or both sides of a number of substrate materials.

 Radiant Barriers: A Question and Answer Primer (FSEC-EN-15)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
A radiant barrier is a layer of aluminum placed in an airspace to block radiant heat transfer between a heat-radiating surface (such as a hot roof) and a heat-absorbing surface (such as conventional attic insulation).
The most effective way to install a radiant barrier in an existing attic is simply to staple the foil material to the underside of the top chord of the roof trusses or to the underside of the roof decking.
Attach the radiant barrier to the roof deck or truss chords after the roof decking is installed, but prior to the installation of the ceiling drywall.

 FAQ's - Radiant Panel Association
Radiant energy transfer is caused by a warm surface giving up its heat to a cooler surface.
Radiant energy will heat the surfaces of all objects which are in direct line of sight from the panel; that means all walls, floors, ceilings, chairs, tables, or people which can be "seen" by the radiant panel.
Radiant panels direct the heat to the interior of the space and reduce or eliminate the excessive temperatures on outside walls and ceilings.

Radiant energy exists in a range of wavelengths that extends from radio waves that many be thousands of meters long to gamma rays with wavelengths as short as a million-millionth (10
Approximately one-half of the energy reaching the earth from the sun is light; that is, it is within the visible portion of the spectrum.
The remainder arrives as heat and a small amount of ultraviolet light (which can, however, have a large effect on the aging of skin and the development of skin cancer).

 Thomas Henry Moray: The Sea of Energy ~ Excerpts of technical factoids & illustrations of the Moray Radiant Energy ...
Radiant Energy from the cosmos, like radiant particles of matter, being composed of an infinitesimal quantity whose behaviors are described by mathematical equations similar to those used for describing electrical waves, keeping in mind to differentiate between wavelength and frequency.
To summarize: Radiant Energy as herein used is that energy existing in the luminiferous medium of the universe, kinetic and exercised in wave transmission and rendered sensible by conversion of its energy into a detectable frequency.
Energy then is a state of matter, or rather, the result of a particular state or condition in which matter may be when any observed phase of energy appears.

 Radiant Energy, Unraveling Tesla's Greatest Secret Part 1
The series of observations that led to the discovery of Radiant energy initially grew out of experiments that Tesla had conducted in an attempt to duplicate the results that Heinrich Hertz had claimed to achieve in affirming the existence of electromagnetic waves, the discovery of which Hertz announced in 1887.
Tesla’s New York and Colorado experiments confirmed for him that Radiant energy was bound up within the elusive ether, but could be made manifest by the creation of an abrupt disruption in the equilibrium of the ether fractions using one way, high magnitude pulses of short duration.
This new form of energy even had the ability to elevate human consciousness to levels of vastly improved comprehension and mental clarity.

 "Nikola Tesla's Radiant Energy System"
Tesla's free-energy concept was patented in 1901 as an "Apparatus for the Utilization of Radiant Energy." The patent refers to "the sun, as well as other sources of radiant energy, like cosmic rays," that the device works at night is explained in terms of the night-time availability of cosmic rays.
Radiant matter is simply a re-transmitter of energy from one state to another.
Tesla believed that the Sun generates highly charged particles and that radiant matter is a re-transmitter of energy, it is this transfer of energy that could be used for practical purposes.

 The Tom Bearden Website   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
His imagination was especially fired by Tesla's claims to have knowledge of an energy source greater than ordinary electricity, and by Tesla's emphasis on frequencies as the stuff of the universe.
In other words, his thesis that the energy is there to be tapped is correct; it only awaits a practical method to tap it in order to solve the energy problems of mankind forever.
In other words, since the parts of the machine ran cold, it is clear that the energy was being simultaneously collected at each stage rather than being processed through the individual stages in serial order, since serial processing in the conventional electrical sense would lead to resistance heating of the circuit elements.

I have done away with the Plasma tubes and the result is a high energy, undamped direct arc discharge across the contacts which was not possible or known of before I designed it.
Neither the container of methane, nor the electrical discharge from the battery was capable of releasing the energy that was observed and recorded.
The only known source of energy that could have created this energy release would be fusion between the atomic nuclei present in the methane and air within a fusion vortex inside the plasma ball.

 Radiant Energy Excerpts
The incomprehensible energy of the sunbeam brought the carbon out of the air, put it together in the weed or the plant, and lifted each tree-trunk above the soil.
But the color is in us, for it is a sensation which something coming from the sun excites in the eye; so that if the rose-leaf were still there, there would be no color unless there were an eye to receive and a brain to interpret the sensation.
We are considering a fact almost universally accepted within the last few years by physicists, who now generally admit the existence of a something coming from the sun, which is not itself light, heat, or chemical action, but of which these are effects.
