Anti-Gravity Inventor's Balcony Stuff Not Appreciated by . . . ?

John Hutchinson's apartment balcony in New Westminster, British Columbia, looks like a garage collection from a visitor from outer space. The city says "move it or else." Supporters say its not "junk" and to stop needlessly harassing him.


Not everyone wants to live next door to Einstein -- I mean John Hutchinson. There ought to be an award for the most amusing example of this dubious distinction.

John Hutchinson would be among the finalists -- and at least one person (who is not letting his/her identity be known) isn't very happy about it. The other neighbors who were questioned by BCCTV don't mind, and actually find his stuff "intriguing."

A view of his apartment balcony looks like a top secret military surplus cache, complete with space-zapper looking gizmos and strange satellite-looking things.


In fact, it turns out that it is Navy surplus equipment, that John uses for various of his experiments. You would probably need a Ph.D., or more, to understand the description of what these experiments do and how they do it.

Try this one one for size:

"The Hutchison Effect, discovered in 1979, occurs as the result of radio wave interferences in a zone of spatial volume encompassed by high voltage sources, usually a Van de Graff generator, and two or more Tesla coils." -- Mark A. Solis

The news around the Internet says Hutchinson's work ranges from free energy machines to anti-gravity devices.

"Who is this guy?"

"He has made crowbars float, and has welded metal and wood together," said Errol Bruce-Knapp of Toronto radio CFRB "Mind Shift." (Nov. 17, 2003.)

Bruce-Knapp is among those who call him the "Tesla of our time."

The city has given Hutchinson until Nov. 22, 2003 to pack it out or have it taken away. The law is the law, right?

Not according to Hutchinson's friends around the world. They are in an uproar, pummeling the city email lines with messages like "How dare you call his stuff junk!" and "Don't let a petty city ordinance hold back technologies that could clean up the planet." Some even go so far as to say, "John's work may be very necessary to the preservation of the human race."

This would be the fourth time his equipment is confiscated by the government. Another instance occurred when he was trying to move to Germany to more favorable surroundings. His machines were confiscated by the Canadian government at the dock.

What is strange about the recent harassment is that John has had this equipment on the balcony there for seven years, and had the city inspect his flat in 2000, and "everything checked out."

Aerielle Louise of the Lou Gentile Network, a paranormal talk show syndicate, is one of Hutchinson's close associates who has been rallying support for his apartment dilemma. "John is brilliant in science, but sometimes a tad clueless when it comes to how people work. He thinks that just because all these people are raising a ruckus in his support he won't have to worry about his stuff being taken; but it doesn't always work that way when you are dealing with city hall."

Who knows what agendas are being served. Even without conspiratorial underpinnings, sometimes a bureaucratic mentality can be ruthless and completely disregard reason.

Hutchinson's bright day in the sun was nearly twenty years ago when he invented a battery that never needs recharging. Several copies are found in various placed around the world in private ownership. There is one on public display in Japan that is still running. It doesn't put out that much electricity -- maybe enough to power a laptop computer -- but it never stops; never needs recharging.

The energy is supposedly extracted "from the cosmos." Just how that happens is the subject of numerous websites around the world.

Hutchinson went on world tour showcasing his technology. He was visited by both the U.S. and Canadian governments who wanted him to work with them. He has received so many offers of funding and support that he has stopped counting. But after all these years, none have come through as promised.

"They just came, looked, and then stole his technology," says Louise. "It's not that complicated, and someone who has the right background can look and know what they are seeing." She says Hutchinson's work is "at the root of what is being done in the military industrial complex," and that they are not sharing it with the civilian population.

In fact, she cautions inventors about getting patents on revolutionary things because they have to be passed by the Department of Defense first, and if the DOD thinks there is an application there for them, the inventor will get a notice and the technology will be sequestered.

"John is really quite disenchanted," says Louise. "He's not done much with his stuff for nearly two years now. His apartment is too small." It takes too much effort to get things out to where he can work on them, only to have to put them away again.

You can just hear the conversation now, "Honey, could you please move the zizzioplagorizer so I can open the dishwasher?"

"Actually, the stuff out on the balcony is not really the issue with the neighbors," said Hutchinson on Bruce-Knapp's show Nov. 17. "When I was doing some filming for FOX news and Griffin Films, neighbors were complaining about items floating in their apartment."

"At that point, I decided to stop working with the anti-gravity technology and just focus on the energy technology," he said.

"He really needs a place out in the countryside where he can work in peace, with lots of laboratory space," says Louise.

Louise said Hutchinson would next like to put his technology out in the form of a toy that never needs the battery to be changed. Next, he thinks he can build a battery device with much higher power output. And that is just the tip of the iceberg, according to the various websites addressing his work.

"We need to get it out of him in the next couple of years," she says, "or we may not get it at all."

Will city hall bend to one complaining citizen -- or whoever made the complaint -- and enforce a rule that perhaps even some of themselves are in violation, or will they strike a more reasonable arrangement?

Cities expend untold millions of dollars to restore historic cites within their boundaries to honor the heroes of the past. Perhaps New Westminster could cut Hutchinson some slack and let him finish making history. He could do them proud.

Or will they forever be known as the city that snuffed Hutchinson.
