Ancient atmospheric energy and illumination

Above we see lighting used in New Year celebrations of 1758 St. Petersburg.

A patent for the first lightbulb was made in 1880. Electricity came to public use at the end of the 1800s, brought to us by the Rockefeller-sponsored Thomas Edison. So what type of lighting is used here? Could it be gas? The timeline of lighting technology on Wicked-pedia, says gas-lighting was invented in 1792, coming to public use in the 1800s. 

Are the academics gaslighting about 1700s illuminations being oil lamps and candles? I’ve spent hours looking for documentation on the technology used and found no reference.  The illuminations marked important celebrations. Surely someone would have mentioned how they were lit?  

Here’s why I don’t believe they are candles or oil lamps. Even just one oil lamp is a fire hazard, not to mention hundreds. They don’t look like oil lamps. Oil lamps were too dim to illuminate an entire town-square. 

The leaf-like formations look like energy-capacitors of an unknown kind. 

There’s a good article titled Mysterious Illuminations of the 18-19 Centuries on the website Its author believes the ancients used wireless technology. I quote:

Pay attention to the metal thing encircled in red. It’s a decorative metal logo of France (similar one for Russia should stand nearby), which used to glow, being charged by the devices encircled in blue. 

What at first sounds like a far-fetched idea, is actually supported by this part of the previous image:


In order to get any information on these devices, I had to process many publications of the 19th century that were left untouched by censorship, like newspapers, booklets of expositions and other similar stuff. Information was very scarce, however, I managed to find a small bit of information in french in one of the publications:

Out of this text, I found out that ether capacitors from the images were some kind of balls made of tin, with a special filling. If they had a steel sharp element attached to the top (in a form of a flower), they began to conduct electricity and glow with bright light.

So we are looking at a lighting technology unknown to us, suppressed by the people who’d prefer to charge money for energy!

If free energy from the air sounds fantastical to you, remember that we also used to get water for free, from the air. 


Looking from the lens of “suppressed technology” all paintings pre-1800s deserve a new examination. These are some from the article linked above (enlargen your screen or visit source-article to see larger images). 

Some of the author’s commentary on each image: 

2nd Image: “we see some balls hanging on the building. The fact becomes irrefutable. There are also some conifer-looking objects seen in the image”

3rd Image: 1681.The lamps, hanging on the wires, evidently have not candles inside. The light they radiate is unusual, and looks like the whole lamp is glowing (instead of separate lights).

4th image: the whole obelisk is decorated with lights. Where does it take such a high ionization voltage?

6th Image: Here we see Frankfurt in 1730 (but for some reason there is the emblem of the Russian Empire?!). We can see the same glowing balls and decorations in the image.

7th Image: Even the flying balloon radiates light, illuminating some kind of decoration (N – stands for the emperor Napoleon). The light is evidently not a result of combustion.

The author of the article goes on to say: “Is there any detail that connects together all these images (excluding the festive atmosphere)? Of course there is. It is again the very same ether capacitor, seen many times in previous articles”

The leaf-like shapes were “required to generate light” according to the text. This very much supports my older article titled Ancient Towers as Antennas

 This gem is my final quote from the article:

“Still have doubts? Here is another artifact. It is an illumination preparation blueprint that somehow managed to bypass censorship. Look at the amount of ether capacitors, big and small, hanging on some net and standing on ledges. These are not oil lamps (or any other similar lamps) because fire would blacken/damage the siding of the building. These are the very same devices that we saw in all previous images. Somehow, they concentrate the etheral field in a way that all external metallic bondings glow with light, as well as various lamps, conifers, menorahs and other decorative elements that appear within this field


The drawing below is a rare find.It shows what the inscription says are “lighting tools”. This is from 1761 and these methods of lighting are mysterious to us. 

These are “lighting tools” in their unlit, native state. I get the sense that modern pinwheels used at holiday celebrations are mere degraded replicas of the lit up originals. 

Below: Festivities in 1749 France, including fireworks and again, the mysterious lights. 

The image below says it’s a structure erected around the Green Park for the Royal Fireworks of 1749. I’m skeptical. The text looks pasted to the painting. The structure does not look like it’s built for a one-time purpose only to be burned down by fireworks. 

The following is allegeldy the 1638 celebration of the birth of Louis XIV, King of France.  We see an indoor setting. If these were actual fireworks, they would have burned the building and charred the people along with it. Maybe the inscriptions about “fireworks” were later additions to the images, to obscure that they show an unknown technology. 

Some researchers say that this lighting was also used into the 1800s, using a metal frame of buildings. Examples:

The image below shows daytime vs. night time. No additional lighting added.

Below are two Chinese examples.

For those curious, here is a webpage detailing evidence of ancient electricity, ranging thousands of years back: Chronology of Ancient Electricity

But I don’t think we’re dealing with conventional electricity here, but rather wireless energy, possibly free. 

Paris is known as the “city of lights” because it was the first to use gas-lighting in the late 1800s. I did a search-query on 1700s Paris and found plenty of images of Paris, but none at night. So I added “night” to the search query and still found nothing. Was that because Paris was in darkness? No. In this article we see France had a long tradition of illumination. And if they weren’t using the wireless tech, at the very least the city was lit up by lanterns. And yet, I found not one painting of night time Paris from the 1700s. This, to me, points at deliberate censorship. I guess we’re supposed to believe that the Parisans built Castles, Palaces, Bridges, Towers and Cathedrals far superior to anything we’re capable of building today, but didn’t have the means to light them up at night. 

Some say ancient illuminations are powered by mercury. I found a webpage on titled Atmospheric Electricity. The following old articles are taken from the page:

The page contains more examples. I don’t know enough to comment either way. What I know is that Thomas Edison, the “inventor of the light bulb” (not!) fought legal battles with other inventors, including Nikola Tesla (who did propose wireless Technology zapped from the air). Through the funding machinery of the Rockefeller family, Edison finally beat his competitors and today we all pay for electricity.

The Wikipedia page on Mercury is quite Illuminating, for once. I quote:

Quantities of liquid mercury ranging from 90 to 600 grams (3.2 to 21.2 oz) have been recovered from elite Maya tombs (100–700 AD) or ritual caches at six sites

In Islamic Spain, it was used for filling decorative pools

The Fresnel lenses of old lighthouses used to float and rotate in a bath of mercury

Mercury(I) chloride (also known as calomel or mercurous chloride) has been used in traditional medicine as a diuretic, topical disinfectant, and laxative. Mercury(II) chloride (also known as mercuric chloride or corrosive sublimate) was once used to treat syphilis (along with other mercury compounds), although it is so toxic that sometimes the symptoms of its toxicity were confused with those of the syphilis it was believed to treat. It is also used as a disinfectant. Blue mass, a pill or syrup in which mercury is the main ingredient, was prescribed throughout the 19th century for numerous conditions including constipation, depression, child-bearing and toothaches.[101] In the early 20th century, mercury was administered to children yearly as a laxative and dewormer, and it was used in teething powders for infants. The mercury-containing organohalide merbromin (sometimes sold as Mercurochrome) is still widely used but has been banned in some countries such as the U.S.

140 countries agreed in the Minamata Convention on Mercury by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to prevent emissions.The convention was signed on 10 October 2013

The Minamata Convention on Mercury is an international treaty designed to protect human health and the environment from anthropogenic emissions and releases of mercury and mercury compounds. The convention was a result of three years of meeting and negotiating, after which the text of the convention was approved by delegates representing close to 140 countries on 19 January 2013 in Geneva and adopted and signed later that year on 10 October 2013 at a diplomatic conference held in Kumamoto, Japan. The convention is named after the Japanese city Minamata. This naming is of symbolic importance as the city went through a devastating incident of mercury poisoning.


I learn that Mercury had a wide variety of uses in industry and medicine. It is in fact related to the illumination of ancient lighthouses and Pyramids of the Maya!

But now it’s banned in most country’s to prevent poisoning. I could name more toxic substances that aren’t banned. Why is mercury singled out? 

While investigating, I came across an e-booklet titled “Atmospheric Energy – A Retrospective” published by It can be downloaded or simply read in the embedding below. I don’t vouch for the truth of of its contents, but it’s a fascinating read. The author is either very imaginative or has access to some type of elite intel. I’ll go into some of what it says below. 

The author says a substance called “red gold” or “arab gold” is responsible for AET (atmospheric ether technology). A code word for mercury? The author says that normal Gold is used and then mixed with other substances. The main reason Gold is being hoarded by the elite, the author says, is to keep this tech out of the hands of normal people.

I’ve heard it said that the technology is withheld because it can “cause great damage”. But the argument could be made that the only damage it causes is to the greedy elite. 

The book says the world center of red-gold production in the old days, was Hazar, Turkmenistan. That would have made it the most protected place on Earth. Is that why even today, Turkmenistan is perceived as closed-off and secretive?

I snooped around the area on Google Earth a little and found one of the mysterious ancient grids in the desert:

I’m not saying it’s related. But where we find real ancient centers of power, we always also find desert because they these locations were – in my view – pulverized by bombs and advanced weaponry from the air. 

An interesting claim from the booklet:

Supplying energy to residential and industrial buildings was based on completely
different principles than it is today. AET, as the name suggests, used the now
forgotten principle of gathering and concentrating energy from the atmosphere. This
energy was called Atmospheric Energy or Atmospheric Electricity, which in turn
varied from traditional electricity. Technically it involved the construction of a
building that had special components in its’ structure. This components gathered
energy from the atmosphere and channeled it through the building’s metal frame.

Theoretically there was no limit to power output that could be gained from the
atmosphere. Practically it depended on geographic latitude of the place where the
building stood, the size of energy conducting components of the building and terrain
features. Some sources claim that throughout the world there were cities that were
built with atmospheric energy extraction in mind, where each house was getting its’
share of energy while simultaneously providing energy for general public need such
as lighting streets at night.

The most fascinating assertion, to me, was that there were ships utilizing atmospheric energy. This is from the booklet:

It reminded me of ancient paintings of flying ships. I add one of them below:


If you say “Naaa, come on, that’s fiction!” I say: Mythology is full of flying ships. All the so-called “gods” of ancient times were using flying devices. If the ancients were able to harness energy from the air, what would stop them from using it to drive and fly? 

If the ancients harnessed free energy, it would explain why the layouts of so many ancient cities look like circuits (as previously shown).
