Recounting his remarkable story, Prof. Searl detailed how he first conceived of the device via a series of recurring dreams. Years later, he assembled the early prototypes of the invention and saw that it mysteriously floated, non-stop, upwards. Eventually, Searl managed to develop a means of controlling the device. It was during this time that sightings of his experiments in England were dubbed 'UFOs' by an unsuspecting public as well as the newspapers who knew of his work but desired to keep it under wraps. Should the technology ultimately be used to create a vehicle, he claimed that it could travel from London to New York in 15 minutes and a trip to the moon or the ISS would be the equivalent of "a bus ride." On why the device has yet to be harnessed by companies or governments, Searl explained that one issue surrounds ownership of the creation because "once they see it, they want to own it." As such, Searl said that he has to "protect the technology so the whole world owns it, not a particular group." To that end, he has resisted getting a patent on the machine in order to keep the precise details of the invention secret. Additionally, he noted that, despite seeing the invention at work, experts simply could not believe that it was a magnetic powered device. "They are brainwashed to a particular concept," Searl lamented. For those that do believe, Lockerman observed, there is a different kind of effect: one of sadness that such a device is not being put to good use.

Within 2 months John had won a 6 year grant to study in Neurosurgery at Cambridge at age 16 but this fell through due to John`s guardian`s refusal to assign the hospital as John`s guardian for the six year period. From this point on, with an aspiring medical career shattered, John became interested in cinema projection, from a technical viewpoint. John soon had a job as the trainee projectionist at Woodford Bridge and then at Ilford. Fortunately the manager was a ham operator and John was introduced to this field. This career move was also interrupted by an envious Guardian and so John moved to the Midlands to set up on his own.
