Editor's Comment

When I first heard about Tilley's electric vehicle driven by a mysterious charger that keeps the batteries perpetually topped, I wanted to believe it was for real, and a manifestation of the "free energy" that mankind is now learning to harness -- solar energy being the most obvious example of extracting energy from a virtually inexhaustible source.

I began this feature website of Tilley's technology with the intent of giving adequate coverage for this phenomenal development.

As time progressed and I had interaction with Carl Tilley and his associate ***, I began to see that they were less than ethical in their dealings with me.  I still remained hopeful that their technology was sound, even as I grew less confident that the technology was theirs originally to offer investors.

I still hope that they have something worth while in their black box, but I am skeptical enough of their ethics that I am willing to give voice on this forum for responsible claims of fraudulent activities by Carl Tilley.

Carl is encouraged to provide evidence to the contrary.

After writing the above, I put this exposé page on hold, pending hearing back from Robert Kibbey, but my requests for confirmation were not returned.

With Walter Webb blowing whistle on the Tilley Foundation, I can no longer withhold, but must contribute to the exposing of this for what it is:  a malicious scam operation by a professional con man.

Schopenhauer
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.
