In the late 1950s, Otis Carr claimed to have discovered what he
called the "Utron", a "molecular shell" that houses the atoms.
The cohesion of molecular shells is brought about by inertial
systems in the gravity field, manifesting in the two poles of
natural magnetism and electromagnetism. He claimed that by
"hatching" the atomic egg, particularly of paramagnetic and
diamagnetic elements (especially bismuth), atomic energy could
be released gently. The Carr affair is generally considered to
be a fraud. This file is a collection of excerpts of technical
factoids from articles, interviews, etc., on the subject,
without consideration of Carr's botched attempts to make a
business of it. The technology actually makes some sense (to me,
anyhow, with qualifications and reservations). I was told by
Ralph Ring (one of Carr's engineers) that he himself had flown
in a short test flight of a small model of the craft. Carr's
business methods (fraudulent stock offerings and amateurish
publicity tainted with hubris and non-performance) doomed his
efforts. His engineer Norman Colton was an alcoholic who
stupidly threatened a local newspaper publisher, thus generating
more negative feedback. It was a sad pass from Carr's earlier
statement that "We shall not stop until we have penetrated our
great discoveries into all the ends of the earth, or even as far
into outer space as man desires to go!"
The historic details as published in various newspaper articles
and particularly in True, The Man's Magazine ("King of
the Non-Flying Saucers", January 1961), are too long to be
transcribed here for any useful purpose. This file is composed
only of technical factoids gleaned from the collection of papers
offered by Rex Research (albeit as poor-quality photocopies,
caveat emptor), plus a couple of short articles cribbed from
According to Carr, "Any vehicle accelerated to an axis rotation
relative to its attractive inertial mass, immediately becomes
activated by free-space-energy and acts as an independent
force... We have shown that a charged body, accelerated to an
axis rotation relative to this attractive inertial mass,
indicates polarity in a given direction. The dip-needle points,
say, up toward the top of the body. But mount this while
rotating body, with its spindle, on another platform and rotate
this platform on a spindle, then if the counter-rotation is
greater than the inertial forward rotation of the body, a
dip-needle on the second platform will point down while the
first dip-needle points up, indicating complete relativity of
polarity. When the exact counter-rotation matches the forward
rotation the body loses its polarity entirely and immediately
becomes activated by free-energy (tensor stresses in space) and
acts as an independent force... The above-described assembly of
counter-rotating charged masses becomes weightless and will
escape the immediate attraction of gravitational forces..."
Interview: "Long John"
Nebel (WOR Radio, NY) with Otis Carr, et al. (1959)
OTC (Otis T. Carr): "Our system utilizes gravity,
electromagnetism, and electromotive force and a relative field
to get its functional operation. We use an electrified sender.
It's a sensor power core. Now this is what we call an
accumulator... It is a storage cell, an accumulation of storage
cells which provide an electromotive force in the same manner
that any known battery produces and electromotive force...
This [the Utron] is a dimensional product. It was designed with
the dimensions of space itself. We say it is truly the geometric
form of space, because it is completely round and completely
square. It has been proven in scientific laboratories that the
very smallest unit of mass matter ever photographed in the
electron microscope are square in shape... We have applied this
principle into an electrified system, which is the power core of
our space vehicle. Now what makes this unique and novel from a
battery is the fact that this is a piece of moving machinery
that rotates. Our average storage battery is an inanimate object
set in an inertial spot and then the electromotive force is
conducted by wires from this battery to animate some object.
LJ ["Long John" Nebel]: Let me interrupt for a moment; I'll try
to describe it further. Well, it looks like two ice cream cones
put together at the wide ends, but he angle is a lot wider [90
degrees] than that of the ice cream cones. There are a series of
ridges; they look like gears would fit in. Is that correct?
OTC: No, those are in a sense turbine; they are reactive
channels and where there is atmosphere a flow of air there aids
LJ: Well, then, this is one of the components of the drive;
this is the battery.
OTC: This is the center power core.
LJ: This generates electricity?
OTC: This is right. This is a storage cell for electrical
energy. In operation it generates electricity at the same time
it puts out electromotive force. This is the central power
system for our spacecraft.
LJ: I can tell this: that it opened up and it appears to be
hollowed out on the inside... it's circular, the inside; when
the two parts are put one on top of the other and they fit into
place, the cavity inside is circular...
OTC: It is a sphere, yes. And each unit is a hemisphere. We
call the center of this large dimension the equator and of
course it contracts and expands to a point on each side It's the
union of two presto-conical sections; that is what it is Two
right angle sections, and we say it is the dimensions of space
and we have shown how this comes about...
LJ: In the literature you've provided us with, there's a
mathematical formula that crops up here that intrigues me: minus
zero divided by plus zero equals zero. Can you tell me more
about it and how you stumbled on this idea?
OTC: The equation is brought about by the shape of our Utron
electrical accumulator; this is the name given to our central
power system. In our operation of working models and in checking
out experiments, we had to find the formula that fir the reason
for the action and reaction we were getting. So in exploring
nature and studying the great inspirational work of the Dr.
Einstein on relativity, we came upon this formula of linear
correlation. And when we study linear correlation in geometric
form we have to have a starting point and this is the point. And
from there it explains through the cross and through the circle.
And the only mathematical way we can express it is in the
symbolism of zero X or 0X, and this formula brings us to that.
We claim that this is the true unified field theory in physical
In a further study of Dr Einstein's great inspirational work
--- and we corresponded with him and we had the great good
fortune of being advised by him at one time --- we learned that
all measurements of time and space had to be considered in
relationship to the observer and therefore there never was a
fixed quantity of any number. Now in physical form, this is
something else again...
On this craft, insofar as the individuals are concerned, we can
travel in the same manner as a pressurized airliner. We don't
have the problem of a heat shield... because the electromagnetic
system sets up a protective shield in our craft which enables us
to overcome this [thermal] barrier without any discomfort to the
occupants of the craft. And we can very slowly rise, and once we
are outside the atmosphere we can accelerate to tremendous
velocities up to the speed of light itself.
LJ: How would it land, sir?
OTC: Very simply, we can fall at a very slow velocity of 100
feet/minute or less and we can set it down as gently as a
feather because we have joined part of the operation of our
craft to universal systems. This is a relative velocity craft
and the minute it reaches the relative velocity of the
attractive inertial mass, it becomes weightless as regards this
inertial attraction. Individually, it is not weightless; t has
the same weight as before, but when it reaches the relative
location it becomes an independent system just as a planet is an
LJ: Is there any gravitational pull at this point, sir?
OTC: None whatsoever. They will have the same feeling of
pressure or weight that they have right now because we will
maintain as far as possible the atmospheric pressure of the
earth at sea level inside the craft.
LJ: I am under the impression that the only reason I'm able to
sit in this chair is because of gravitational pull.
OTC: We have around 14 lb/square inch pressure within our
atmosphere. We have been able to be sealed off away from such a
condition and then artificially with atmospheric pressure the
pressure in the cabin is maintained. We have it very well in
submarines. The same may be used in our craft.
LJ: In other words, under sea where a submarine may be there is
no gravitational pull; is that what you're saying?
OTC: There is gravitational pull at all times, but we are
speaking about the atmosphere of the occupants inside a sealed
LJ: Is that necessary to keep the occupants in the position
OTC: Absolutely, because in a vacuum they are at the mercy of
LJ: What would happen, sir, if there were some kind of
instrument that you could turn on and eliminate the
gravitational pull that was in this room?
OTC: You would in a sense become very buoyant and this is not
in itself a novelty but it certainly does not have any
disastrous effect on humanity.
LJ: Would I remain in this position?
OTC: You could, but any movement would move you out of it.
LJ: Would objects remain in position?
OTC: Until they were brought into any movement. Any movement
would make them buoyant themselves.
LJ: I have a lead pencil; if I hold it in the air and release
my fingers it would fall because of gravitational pull. If we
had this other condition which you so aptly described a moment
ago, if I released my fingers would the pencil remain in midair?
OTC: This is true; it would stay there.
LJ: I believe what you're saying is that you'd be creating an
artificial gravitational field within the body of the spacecraft
and yet there would not be any gravity on the outside?
OTC: Exactly correct.
LJ: And this is done by the battery which I attempted to
describe, spinning around and producing its own gravitational
OTC: Yes, this is the beginning of an answer to your question:
we have capacitor plates and electromagnets as a part of this
system. Now, this is counter-rotating; the electromagnets rotate
in one direction, and the batteries rotate in another. The
capacitor plates rotate in conjunction with the battery so that
we have a clockwise and counterclockwise rotation. Now the third
system is the cabin that maintains the crew. This does not
rotate; it is fixed due to the fact that the two bodies are
rotating clockwise and counterclockwise. Therefore the system
causes the craft to escape from the gravity pull. The craft
itself due to this system still has internal gravity because it
still has the same weight that it had in the beginning.
LJ: What charges this battery?
OTC: This starts out electrochemically the same as other
batteries, but we do have a regenerating system that is very
unique. We are able here, for the first time to our knowledge,
to use atmospheric electricity as a recharging system. This is
done as part of the operational principle of the craft.
LJ: You say you use atmospheric electricity. What happens when
you leave the atmosphere?
OTC: We have electrochemical systems to provide us with all the
energy that we need and have a regenerating system in the manner
of a regenerative coil that recharges this battery in the same
manner that the storage battery in the automobile is recharged
now, by a generator.
LJ: What you have doe is made the first perpetual motion
OTC: There is nothing perpetual about our machine. The energies
which cause it to operate are perpetual. You cannot destroy
matter, and you cannot destroy energy; molecular flow is
perpetual and that has been proven in the laboratory. It has
been proven that electricity itself is immortal. When we take
away resistance we can set up a spark of electricity and it will
continue to operate; therefore we have perpetual energy. No
machine that we can conceive of made by man would be perpetual,
but it is free energy. It's self-energizing and as long as all
parts function and do not wear out this is truly a
Ben: About this formula: were using conventional algebraic
OTC: No, we weren't. Partially conventional, but we were
joining actual space forms. We arrived at satisfactory equations
for ourselves which can be demonstrated.
Ben: Are the physical laws upon which your invention works
expressed in mathematical terms?
OTC: Possibly, but I wouldn't say that I'm qualified. We're
satisfied with this formula.
Ben: Well, it's like saying plus 4 divided by minus 4 equals 4.
OTC: Sometimes these solutions are not always what appear. As
we know in synergy, we know 1 plus 1 equals 3.
Ben: 1 plus 1 equals 3, when?
OTC: Because two conditions always produce a third.
Ben: the third condition is 2, isn't it?
OTC: Not necessarily.
Ben: Could you go over these conditions?
OTC: If one condition operates one way and another operates
another way, when you join them you have another condition and
their sum is 3.
Ben: Well, that is a little bit over my head. I've been looking
at this prototype you have here and I notice a wooden frame or
scaffolding you have a larger model of that you have on a
turbine and around it is a wooden ring and it seems to be filled
OTC: That's right; this is a wood model of an operational
model. What we have here is the cones, our Utron electric
accumulator; that is the power system. This system activates the
electromagnets and in turn activates.
Ben: Does the system --- the thing inside --- activate the
electromagnets on the outside?
OTC: This is true. We do this by contacting this lead wire from
the positive and negative poles of these batteries to the
electromagnets and then we have circuit breakers from these
electromagnets and we have counter-rotation. These
electromagnets will rotate counter-clockwise while the internal
area is rotating clockwise.
Ben: Are these spools of wire on the model itself, are they
OTC: The coils of wire inside the ring are regenerative coils;
they are electromotive force coils and they assist in
regenerating the battery, because they are loops of wire brought
through a magnetic field which sets up an electromotive force.
These others are capacitor plates and these are also activated
by the central power core, but these plates, which can accept a
very high charge in neutral conductance also through the process
of ionization utilize atmospheric electricity.
Ben: The fact that you have two cones meeting at their bases,
so that you have something that is also square. I don't see how
you get a square.
OTC: Dimensionally it is; it is square in these dimensions and
when this rotation starts and builds up to a certain velocity,
this form is very important because we have the total equation
of action and reaction. Now this is done by a system of coil
winding wherein we start at a point, expand to an equator, and
continue our winding down to a point. With this physical
expansion and contraction, is an electromagnetic field. Gravity
enters the picture in the form of this relative rotation. When
the relative rotation ---- inertial effective mass ---, it's a
matter of dimension. So that is the earth, say, is 8,000 miles
in diameter, we know its fixed rotation is 1 in 24 [blurred
text, possible additional digit]. If we were 1 mile in diameter
its rotation would be 8000 in 24 [blurred text, possible
additional digit]. And by the same system, our 45-foot craft has
a rotation of 580 rpm and when it reaches this rotation it is
totally independent of its inertial attractive mass, in an
Ben: If your models get up to 580 rpm, will they take off?
OTC: This model was spun at 40,000 rpm and when it did it set a
pressure pattern of 1,000 tons; the horsepower reading was a
little over 700. Six engineers checked this out. Now the
relative rotation of this model would be about 68,000 rpm, and
when it reaches this rotation, it would immediately take off.
LJ: Would the time factor be involved with this craft?
OTC: In our solar system, the time factor would be involved,
yes. We evaluate time on the velocity of light and in certain
systems, if we exceed the velocity of light, unquestionably time
would slow up.
Ben: Your craft can exceed the velocity of light?
OTC: We don't say this; I say I other systems.
Ben: I thought nothing could do this. I thought it was a
constant factor, one of Einstein's factors.
OTC: Possibly in our system, but not necessarily true in other
Ben: Anything approaching the sped of light becomes pure
OTC: Pure energy, but in other systems it could change.
Ben: What other systems?
OTC: Other solar systems. We are completely controlled by our
system and the velocity of light is our yardstick and our
pattern and our craft is designed around this.
Ben: You don't just upset one of the basic principles of the
Mel Salomey: Doesn't Einstein say any measurement is relative?
Ben: Except this one; it's the first axiom.
Mel: What is an axiom?
Ben: Self-evident truth.
Mel. Thank you. Wasn't Einstein theorizing; wasn't he assuming?
[Discussion of the speed of light, not included in transcript
of the interview]
Roy: What are these coils? To describe this the best I can,
imagine if you will a circle about 18 inches in diameter. Two
circles that form a sort of a -- In other words, one circle fits
over another circle and from the top of the circle and coming
down from the other an inverted round pyramid. There are a
number of what appear to be copper wound coils around the edge
of it. And then there's a sort of a framework on top and
underneath there's sort of braces. That's the general idea. I
noticed these cones placed mouth to mouth with some coils, the
coils on the edge of this thing; it revolves within this
structure. A tough thing to describe.
Q: What is this over here, Mr Colton?
Colton: This is a paper mockup to show the counter-rotation
principle and its outside section that Roy is describing looking
at the other mockup. It contains the electrified horseshoe
magnets. This would rotate in one direction counter-clockwise
while the center section with the electron accumulator [Utron]
would rotate clockwise in the other direction.
Q: Would these coils in the outer rim?
Colton: Rotate counter-clockwise -- It has a rotation speed
relatively equal the earth's rotation speed, at about 580 rpm.
Q: When you say 580 rpm do you mean the outer rim is rotating
on one direction 580 rpm and the inner rotating in the other
direction at the same speed, giving a total rotation, one
relative to the other, of 1160?
Colton: Exactly, although I don't know if 1160 has any bearing
on it or not.
Q: Well, it would be twice the rotation in reference to the
Colton: We're not giving it for a certain rotation for the sake
of rotation but for the sake of relativity to the attractive
mass. The earth at 8,000 miles diameter rotating once in 24
hours is relatively equal to a 45-foot craft rotating at 580
rpm, and 580 rpm would calculate to be the approximate
rotational speed of an automobile tire on a car moving at about
LJ: Could a small craft be made to take off?
OTC: We plan to build a prototype model as a demonstration
device. Now I would like to state that certain models have been
built by me and tested. Each one has been airborne. One was lost
entirely in space. We had a control system and this one didn't
function. This has already been done.
Q: As was calculated, the speed of the circumference was 1263
mph. It gets kind of warm at that, doesn't it?
OTC: No, it won't because it has its own protection field which
is its electromagnetic actuation. We described it as a
self-contained unit. This ionization of the capacitor plates
sets up a glow brilliantly with a very soft luminescent light.
LJ: What color?
OTC: It would be in the nature of blue-green or very similar to
the electric arc you see in welding. This is the field we are
testing. It does not have a heat barrier in forward velocity at
all. This electromagnetic field is being tested out now in
conventional aircraft and proved very efficient.
Q: Would you suppose you could put rockets toward the edges of
the cone and have the thing spin by rocket propulsion?
OTC: We don't need it. We have a tremendous spin here. An
electric motor operates the same way. You set up an
electromotive force inside a magnetic field and you get
rotation. So what we actually have here is an improved
electrical motor which in itself is a circular device, and we
say we make energy out of the air, from another dimension.
To clear your analogy up also, we would like to demonstrate the
fact that this earth itself is literally a space craft
demonstrating what we're talking about; it's rotating and
orbiting at a certain constant speed with a magnetic field and
it is in itself a spacecraft.
Q: Mr Colton, we assume the moon has a gravitational field. How
does it make a gravitational field and yet it does not rotate on
Colton: It does not rotate on its axis?
Q: No, the moon does not rotate on its axis.
Ben: Sure it does, 1 rotation for 1 revolution.
Q: How long does it take?
Ben: 28 days.
Q: And the earth takes one day.
OTC: And that's how engineers and scientists have evaluated the
velocity of the craft we call the earth by the orbit of it. Upon
the pattern already set up, by the amount of time it takes the
moon to rotate once around the earth from the center of the
earth's core: 28 days. The distance being 245,000 miles. It is
easy to calculate.
Q: These cones seem to revolve over intricately wound copper
coils. Do you supply any motor power to this?
OTC: All energy comes from these two cones [Utron]. This in
vernacular is a battery. The big novelty is that we have put a
battery in motion. We have designed it within the accepted
knowledge of total dimensions of space-matter and we have
activated it electrochemically [electrolyte in the hollow
center] and used the force through chemical activation to
activate the entire craft, after which we have motion as the
feature of this accumulator.
Ben: Mr Osgood's telegram brought up a very important and
perhaps crucial point, mainly, James Clerk Maxwell demonstrated
that light is an electromagnetic radiation, also verified by
hertz who laid the foundation for modern radio. Now the speed of
electromagnetic radiation such as radio waves also travels
186,000 miles per second. In other words, light and all forms of
electromagnetic radiation travel at the speed of 186,000 miles
per second. Now if it were possible for your craft to travel
faster than the speed of light, it could, therefore, travel
faster than the speed of electromagnetic radiation. So once it
exceeded 186,00 miles per second, you wouldn't be gaining all
this energy from this electromagnetic radiation you're
generating and wouldn't you fall rapidly down?
OTC: There is a continuous falling in space which in itself can
bring velocity and can bring you to another system. We mentioned
conjecturally that in other systems, there could be different
velocities. We're not applying them to our craft. We don't
identify them wit our craft. Relatively, we could not go faster
than the speed of light unless we were in a system that
permitted it. In our solar system, which we have mentioned now 3
times, it is designed on known principles. We conjectured about
other systems. If we go beyond the speed of light in other
systems the conditions within that system would make it possible
for us to have power.
Roy: Let's assume, Mr Carr, this vehicle is at rest. What is it
that originally overcomes the inertia of this rotor and starts
the rotor moving?
OTC: The electromagnetic force stored in the energy of the
Utron electric-accumulator, which in vernacular is a battery.
Roy: Now the Utron electric accumulator is these cones that are
inverted to each other with bases together. I know of zinc
batteries, nickel-cadmium, lead-acid cells. Could you use those?
OTC: We could use any of the kinds you mentioned; what we have
here is tremendous power size in comparison to other batteries;
therefore, it's very easy to put 1000 2-volt cells inside this
one unit as you see it. It has functioned very well. In our
45-foot craft we plant to have 12,000-volt batteries which will
extend an electromotive force which will energize the
electromagnets and the capacitor plates. The generative coils
will put back into the batteries in this system the same amount
of volts going out until there is a breakdown of
electro-chemicals or wear-out of equipment. But it could last as
long as average storage batteries in automobiles.
Roy: In order to start the motor off originally, is it
necessary to cause a flow of electricity through one set of the
OTC: That's true.
Roy: Is there any magnetic force in the other set of coils at
OTC: They individually operate by circuit breakers and the
first motion begins to start a repetition. The same we have in a
motor that has the opposite of a commutator, which is an
accumulation of contact points where each coil is energized as
the current flows through this coil. Then this starts the
motion, the repetition of this motion brings the whole motor
into phase in the same sense our accumulator and magnets become
speeded up and the circuits are made and broken as they rotate.
Roy: Where the inner rotor rotates in one direction and the
outer in the other direction. and if the cabin is located on top
of the rotating mechanism, what keeps it from rotating in one
direction or the other?
OTC: We have this cabin as the center of the craft and the
battery below the cabin and the electromagnets are the total
outside of the circular foil. The shaft of the accumulator goes
through the cabin and there is a bearing. Now, just as this
stays stationary when this is rotated, so will the cabin because
there are two rotating forces. You have the clockwise rotation
of the accumulator, the capacitor plates, the generative coils,
you have a counter-rotation of the entire circular area of the
craft, the larger diameter which houses the electromagnets;
therefore, when you have rotation in both directions, the cabin
itself is like a bearing and extension of the shaft. We've built
models and proved this is correct.
Roy: OTC XI was accomplished?
OTC: Six crafts were airborne, one escaped; we used circuit
breakers of various types and fuses burned through the switch
and we lost one craft.
Roy: What was the size?
OTC: The largest and the one lost was 6 feet in diameter.
Roy: You also talk of the Caroto Gravity Motor and you mention
it requires no fixed location in which to function, and you also
say a lot of other wonderful things about the possibility for
this motor. Is it something else than the spacecraft?
OTC: They are two separate packages. The spacecraft utilizes
the electrical accumulator and the gravity motor uses the energy
of the inertial attractive forces. We have learned how to take
this energy and key it to a working shaft and get work power
which we call free energy because it is. We don't make any part
of it. Now in the rather vulgar vernacular sense this would have
been classified as perpetual motion. It is nothing of the sort.
It's free energy. Now we have learned that all masses that are
smaller than the masses to which they are attracted exert
energy. Even this ashtray; if it takes a pound of energy to lift
it, then it is exerting a pound of energy. We have a true
gravity motor. Its functional operation is to produce power
continuously without any dissipation of the energy which causes
it to operate, and we have built models of this and they operate
and function and we are in the patent procedure with this.
Mel: Back to a question a while ago regarding an analogy of the
earth as a spacecraft. Taking another look at the mock up
prototype power package there in front of you. It resembles the
solar system itself, and as a matter of fact one of the
statements in the brochure published in 1957, stated it
illustrated the geometry of the universe. It seems that this
device miniaturizes and essentially duplicates the motion of
bodies in the solar system. It must have the ability to
miniaturize their energy. So in a sense, the bodies in the solar
system, in all time, have maintained their constant motion
perpetually in those motions and this is why people characterize
this power package as a perpetual motion machine.
OTC: But we do not make any such claim.
Colton: The Utron has many applications, has many forms, many
variation. In one sense you might describe it as an energized
armature or in other words a motor with a self-contained moving
battery, also capable of continuously re-energizing itself. The
offer in regards to spacecraft applies to government and
industry alike. We will only make total disclosure demonstration
after we have procured a firm order. In other words, we're not
looking for anyone to evaluate our development. Mr Carr has come
a long way in his research. He doesn't need any risk money from
taxpayers or industries for further exploration and development.
We will disclose to anyone who is a purchaser, but not to anyone
who comes along for curiosity.
Mel: What does the word "Utron" mean?
Colton: "Utron" is a coined word, a word Mr Carr put together:
the letter "U" and "tron", U meaning the direction or shape of
motion as applied and used and equated in this accumulator or
battery we described -- U is the plane, the geometrical figure
that is the portrait of the wave, you might say. The letter U as
described on paper, the two-dimensional, is a portrait on paper
of the wave or the wave motion with the cut field, with the
straight line, the pressure energy in the Utron accelerator.
OTC: To me there's no such thing as a completed curve; you only
go half way, just like you only go half way into the woods, then
you're coming out. This is the same. A bisection of a total
sphere is its exact curve and one half of it is primarily
U-shaped. Because in magnets there are always two poles and one
normal way to show them is in a U-shape, but if it's in a bar
magnet, there are still two poles and the shape is still the
same. We can only put a rope one half way around the tree and
it's coming back the other way, and this is true in all wave
motion. Now, if you extend this into velocity, this is the
pattern in the sine wave and definitely the electromagnetic
Ben: I see... the vortexian of the wave
OTC: All motion is relative to all other motion, so this
serpentine, spiral state.
Ben: So it's not the form of that motion, the graph and the
equation. I'll accept the fact that it's the form of the utron
OTC: Also the form as well in two dimensions is intensified in
the geometry of our accumulator.
Q: Why do you refer to this vehicle as a 4th dimensional
OTC: Because the geometry of the accumulator is such as the 4th
dimension. To me the application of space and time, a vibratory
field and electricity as we know it is a vibratory force in
motion. This is symbolic of it and when it is activated it
becomes such. Now this may be a little bit difficult to
understand, but nevertheless the very smallest electronic
particles of matter have been shown under the highest type of
electron microscope to be one-dimensional squares. To me this is
verification that this is truly a space dimension because it is
the shape of matter. Without matter you couldn't have space.
Q: I'm holding a thing that looks like two loudspeakers in a
simplified form, placed mouth to mouth, two cones mouth to
mouth, like two tops together so they have a point at each end
and actually like a thickened flying saucer... Now what is it
that comes from that: is it a high voltage?
OTC: The voltage is whatever we wish to make it by design.
Q: In other words, then, this is a battery?
OTC: That's right.
Q: The battery then goes through these magnets?
OTC: The battery rotates in this magnetic field. The average
armature today in any electrical system is usually the
permeability, iron wound with copper, then through a magnetic
field acts as a motor, or it becomes a generator, depending upon
the lead. The great novelty here in the area in which an
armature is normally used, we have a [power unit, and this a
battery, and this is a moving power unit.
Q: In other words, you might call this a self-contained power
supply, right? How would this generator --- maybe I'm using the
wrong word --- gather additional energy from outside?
OTC: This is due to its circular motion. Electrical forces are
motions where they manifest. Now we have cycles in alternating
current; AC gives you 60 cycles per second; we have discovered
in our experiments that there is a space cycle related to
electricity, and if we join the cycle we get energy from it.
Q: Mr Colton, will you try to describe to our listeners how
they can draw at home a facsimile of an Utron?
Colton: You can take a pencil and draw four lines to form an
open square. When you have a square, draw a straight line from
one point of the square to an opposite point and you'll have two
right angle triangles. Now if you convert the line you've just
drawn into a small lip you'll begin to see two inverted cones,
the base of which form a circular equator. While you started
with a square, you now have two cones. Obviously, the base of
the cone is a circle or completely round as we describe it, and
you have the device which is described as completely round and
completely square, the Utron electric accumulator. The cavity in
the center of these which is a hemisphere when the two cones are
put together have a hollow sphere. This is the cavity which
contains the electrolyte which would be used in some of the
applications of the accumulator.
Q: Of what value is the term "completely round and completely
square" apart from its obvious redundancy.
Colton: It is Carr's definition of the geometry or the basic
space form or the basic form of all matter large or small
relatively as we describe it. It is the definition of the
terminal motions of universal energies in what we call space.
Q: In one of your brochures you make mention of a "photon gun"
and you say, "This is primarily a development that works outside
of the earth's atmosphere. We are entering an age of space
flight and the use of solar energy is practically unlimited"...
What is a photon gun?
OTC: I am using the word gun as a reaction principal instead of
as a weapon, nevertheless it is a gun and in fact fires billions
of rays of solar energy at right angles to the reception. By
placing them through a certain chamber, we have been able to get
a reaction and whenever there is a reaction, we can get power,
we can get force from it. So we feel outside the earth's
atmosphere new systems of propulsion even beyond our own of
electromagnetism will make themselves apparent.

"Carr's Principles of Free Energy Space
Flight Accorded Highest Scientific Verification"
Otis T. Carr, President of OTC Enterprises in Baltimore and
inventor of a manmade spacecraft, which he has offered to build
and deliver to the government without one penny of risk to the
American taxpayer, publicly revealed the propulsion principle of
his spacecraft in the following statement:
"Any vehicle accelerated to an axis rotation relative to its
attractive inertial mass, immediately becomes activated by
free-space-energy and acts as an independent force..."
An excellent example of this principle applied in practice is
the fact that the two satellites now orbiting the earth, have
achieved space-energy activation by an equivalent inertial
velocity, and were it not for their susceptibility to internal
or inherent physical deterioration, they would theoretically and
factually be kept orbiting by natural space forces until the end
of time in our solar system. These statements in evaluation of
natural physical phenomena as first discerned and made public by
Mr Carr, have been physically tested in laboratory experiment by
an impartial scientific laboratory and confirmed as follows:
"We have shown that a charged body, accelerated to an axis
rotation relative to this attractive inertial mass, indicates
polarity in a given direction. The dip-needle points, say, up
toward the top of the body. But mount this while rotating body,
with its spindle, on another platform and rotate this platform
on a spindle, then if the counter-rotation is greater than the
inertial forward rotation of the body, a dip-needle on the
second platform will point down while the first dip-needle
points up, indicating complete relativity of polarity. When the
exact counter-rotation matches the forward rotation the body
loses its polarity entirely and immediately becomes activated by
free-energy (tensor stresses in space) and acts as an
independent force... The above-described assembly of
counter-rotating charged masses becomes weightless and will
escape the immediate attraction of gravitational forces.
"Your discovery therefore is distinctly a possibility, and its
creative genius lies in its inventor's ability to provide it
with a process for generating its own power as a result of its
Translated into familiar terms, this scientific explanation
means that the above-described assembly of counter-rotating
charged masses becomes weightless and will escape the
immediately attractive gravitational forces...
Our experiments and investigations have made known to us that
the mighty power from the Sun can be utilized when the geometry
of design is properly evaluated. We are aware of the resistance
factors involved, due to the earth's atmosphere, and our
developments have been predicated on overcoming these, which in
some instances has been done.
We have invented a Fourth Dimensional Vehicle. This Fourth
Dimensional Vehicle is powered by the revolutionary Utron
electric accumulator, which is completely round and completely
square, and generates its own power, which is electromagnetism
and electromotive force. It can be launched form the earth, and
does not have to be blasted into space. The basic design was
brought to the attention of the United States Government, and a
patent application was filed in 1949.
Some tests were independently made by qualified engineers at
one of America's leading plants and it was estimated that a
small model, only 4 inches in diameter, produced energy
equivalent to 1,000 tons. This was in 1952, and Mr Carr was
unable to interest anyone in his efforts at that time. Things
have changed, and the Government has now put its blessing on
space flight development.
At the present time the rocket enthusiasts are commanding
topmost attention. But there will be changes in thinking, and
new directions of endeavor very soon. Our experiments with
circular-foil design, as relates to gravity, electromagnetism,
and electromotive force, have led us to the certain conclusion
that it is possible to use the inverse-proportion laws of Newton
as successfully as the third law of motion applies to
accelerated rockets. We will produce the OTC-X1 circular-foil
spacecraft as the first operational prototype as symbolized in
this conception drawing.
Claims Christ Disclosed True Nature of the Universe in
Symbolism of the Cross ~
Visionary Mr Carr claims that Christ disclosed the true nature
of the Universe in the Symbolism of the Cross. He pointed out
that "Christ is truly expressed in the sign of the Cross -- the
true Cross -- the absolute, the finite expression of the cosmos
that we call the Universe". The inventor further stated:
"A universe has only two basic properties: the motions and the
directions. The correlation of these properties manifest in
several forms, their two categories being called energy and
"These two forms are equal to each other, and are the product
of each other, matter being energy under the pressure of motion
and having relative finity because of the harmonious correlation
of the direction of such pressure, and energy being matter
released from pressure by any change in the direction of motion.
"In any universal system, these motions and directions manifest
their finite totality in what we call space, and describe their
total form in what we call straight lines and curves, the
geometry of which is expressed in a finite form whose dimensions
are a constant correlation of the directions and motions. We
have equated the shape of this universal space and translated it
into physical form which we have called the Utron Electrical
Accumulator, which expresses the linear correlation of space
motions and directions in a form that is therefore completely
round and completely square.
"In its linear proportions the Utron Electrical Accumulator is
the union of straight lines brought together in and from all
directions, and in its correlation of and with curved lines it
expands from a point to the circumference of its equator and
contracts from that equator to a point, always being a
correlation of complete curves. The aim of these linear
correlative dimensions is three points, the exact center point
of which is +0 and -0, the exact peripheral points of which are
+X and -X.
The space ship designer then mathematically points out his
-0 / +0 = 0
-X / +X = X
0 + X = 0X
Continued Mr Carr:
"We were inspired to complete this work in the service of the
Christ Jesus by Albert Einstein's search for a unified field.
This relativity is a unified field, expressed in physical form
is the square in the circle bisected by the Cross. The Utron
Electrical Accumulator is the full expression of the dot that
was the beginning of 0X, extended in all directions to form the
cross, which in motion continues on to form the square and the
"In the beginning was the Word. The Word was 0X [actually:
AeTZI], and in the revelation of Jesus, was given for all who
wanted to see, in the symbolism of the true cross.
"Set the cross in motion and you will see the halo that is
Light and which we also call Energy.
"If there is not time
And there is no space
There can be no other place.
And perhaps there is no far.
Perhaps the Universe
Is right where we are."
Peace and plenty through the Application of Free Energy to
Supply All Things to All People.
US Patent # 2,912,244
(November 10, 1959)
Otis T. Carr
This invention relates generally to implements in amusement
devices, and more particularly to an improved amusement device
of the type where the passengers will receive the impression of
riding in an interplanetary spacecraft.
The present invention contemplates a novel amusement device
having the overall configuration of a spacecraft and being
formed in various sections, with portions of the sections being
rotated in opposite directions to give the impression of
movement to the passengers. It is also contemplated to move the
craft up and down and display an animated movie of heavenly
bodies above the passengers to give the passengers an impression
of leaving the earth and approaching a distant planet or the
like. This invention further contemplates the provision of
electromagnets, cones, and the like carried by the oppositely
rotating sections of the device, and windows through which the
passengers may view these simulated objects to give the
impression that they are viewing the inner workings of an
interplanetary spacecraft during flight of the craft. Finally,
this invention contemplates the construction of the various
portions of an amusement device simulating an interplanetary
spacecraft in such a manner that the device may be easily
transported in sections from one location to another and
reassembled in a minimum of time.
An important object of this invention is to provide an
amusement device wherein a passenger in the device receives an
impression of flying in an interplanetary spacecraft.
Another object of this invention is to provide an amusement
device having a general configuration of an interplanetary
spacecraft and having oppositely rotating sections simulating
the movement of various portions of the device to impress the
passengers with flight in a spacecraft.
Another object of this invention is to provide an amusement
device simulating an interplanetary spacecraft wherein the
passengers will be physically moved a very minor distance and
yet will receive the impression of flying in a spacecraft.
A further object of this invention is to provide a portable
amusement device simulating an interplanetary spacecraft which
may be easily disassembled and transported from one location to
A still further object of this invention is to provide an
amusement device which is simple in construction, may be
economically manufactured, and which will have a long service
Other objects and advantages of the invention will be evident
from the following detailed description, when read in
conjunction with the accompanying drawings which illustrate my
In the drawings:

Referring to the drawings in detail, and particularly Figures 1
and 2, a preferred embodiment of the present invention
comprises, generally speaking, a supporting structure and
landing gear 10, an outer rotating shell 12, an inner rotating
assembly 14 (shown only in Figure 2) and a passenger cabin 16
extending downwardly into the upper end portion of the outer
shell 12. The landing gear and supporting mechanism 20 comprises
a vertically extending tubular member 18 around which the outer
shell 12 and inner rotating assembly 14 are journaled as will be
hereinafter set forth, and a plurality of legs 20 extending
radially outward in circumferentially spaced relation from the
lower end of the tubular member 18. The tubular member 18 is
telescoped over a supporting stanchion 22 which may be in the
form of a pipe, and the tubular member 18 is slidingly supported
on the stanchion 22 by suitable wheels or rollers 24 to
facilitate vertical movement of the member 18 on the stanchion
22, as will be hereinafter set forth. The stanchion 22 is
preferably supported in a suitable foundation 25 to provide
adequate strength for the amusement device.
A suitable jack 26, preferably a hydraulic jack, is anchored in
the foundation 23 underneath the outer end portion of each of
the landing gear legs 20 and is provided with an extension 28
extending upwardly into connection with the respective leg 20.
The jacks 26 are operated simultaneously to raise and lower the
landing gear and supporting structure 10, as will be described.
A suitable shaped housing 20 is preferably secured around each
of the landing gear legs 20 to provide a streamlined appearance.
It may be noted that each of the legs 20 is preferably
constructed out of a structurally strong member, such as an
I-beam, and is secured to the lower end potions of the tubular
member 18 by suitable braces 32 and plates 34 to assure a rigid
and adequate connection of the legs to the tubular member 18.
A pair of rollers 36 (see also Figure 3) are rotatably
supported adjacent the outer end portion of each leg 20 of the
landing gear and are arranged to engage a circular track 38
(Figures 2 and 4) for partially supporting the outer shell 12
and the inner rotating assembly 14 as will be described. Also, a
suitable drive motor 40 (Figure 3) is mounted on one of the legs
20 of the landing gear and is connected through a suitable gear
box 42 to one of the rollers 36 to rotate the outer shell 12
with respect to the landing gear and the supporting structure
10. The roller 36 connected to the drive motor 40 may be
suitably chained (not shown) to its companion roller 36 to
assure an adequate drive connection between the drive motor and
the circular track 38.
The shell (Figure 2) is tubular in configuration, with the
diameter of the central portion thereof substantially larger
than the diameter at the opposite ends thereof, and is supported
in an upright position to give the general appearance of two
saucers placed face-to-face. The outer edge portion 44 of the
shell 12 is preferably formed of partially transparent material,
such as Plexiglass, and is illuminated from within (not shown)
to provide a band of light around the central portion of the
shell 12. the remainder of the shell 12 is formed of any desired
opaque and relatively strong material, such as
aluminum-laminated masonite sheets.
The shell 12 is supported on a frame generally designated by
reference character 46 and illustrated in Figures 2 and 4. the
frame 46 is circular in plan, as viewed in Figure 4, and is
substantially U-shaped in cross-section (as shown in Figure 2)
to provide an upper horizontally extending portion 48 and a
lower horizontally extending portion 50 which extend from
adjacent the support member 18 outwardly to the central portion
of the shell 12. The frame 46 may be easily formed with
industrial steel tubing 52 formed into a truss with bracing of
steel rods 54. With this construction, the frame 46 may be
easily fabricated in sections for convenient assembly, or the
entire frame 46 may be lifted off of the supporting member 18
and transported to another location.
Support of the frame 46 and the outer shell 12 is provided by
the track 38 (previously mentioned) which is secured on the
lower face of the lower horizontally extending portion 50 of th3
frame 46 in a position to engage the roller 36 carried by the
landing gear legs 20. Additional support for the frame 46 is
provided by rollers 56 (Figure 6) secured around the inner edge
of the lower portion 50 of the frame, and rollers 58 secured
around the inner periphery of both portions 48 and 50 of the
frame. The rollers 56 are arranged in circumferentially spaced
relation around the inner periphery of the frame 46 and engage a
circular track 60 supported by the legs 20 of the landing gear.
The track 60 may be an extension of the upper plate 34 shown in
Figure 3. The rollers 58 engage tracks 62 extending
circumferentially around the supporting member 18 to accommodate
any radial forces imposed on the frame 46. It will be understood
that any desired number of the rollers or wheels 36 operated by
the motor 40 will engage the track 38 to rotate the shell 12 in
one direction around the longitudinal axis of the supporting
member 18. The rollers 56 will engage the track 60, and the
rollers 58 will engage the tracks 62 during such rotation of the
outer shell 12 and frame 46.
The inner rotating assembly 14 is generally annular-shaped, as
illustrated in Figure 5, for movement around the supporting
member 18 between the upper and lower horizontally extending
portions 48 and 50 of the frame 46. The assembly 14 is also
preferably constructed as a frame out of square steel tubing 52
formed into a truss with steel rods 54 for bracing, and is
provided with a double conically-shaped framework 64 adjacent
the supporting member 18. The framework 64 is provided to
support a covering material 66 of any suitable type such as
laminated metal or plastic, to simulate a solid member in the
central portion of the amusement device, which in turn simulates
a portion of a spacecraft, such as the power unit for the craft.
The covering material 66 may be corrugated if desired. The
framework 64, as illustrated in Figure 6, is also provided to
support the rotating assembly 14 on the supporting member 18 and
the frame 46. A plurality of rollers 68 are provided around the
lower face of the framework 64, and a plurality of rollers 70
are provided around the upper face of the framework 64 to engage
circular tracks 72 and 74, respectively, which are mounted on
the frame 46. The rollers in each set of rollers 68 and 70 are
provided in circumferentially spaced relation around the inner
periphery of the rotating assembly 14 to accommodate vertical
thrusts imposed on the rotating assembly. Additional rollers 76
and 78 are provided around the inner periphery of the framework
64 to engage tracks 80 extending circumferentially around the
supporting member 18 to accommodate radial thrusts imposed on
the central rotating assembly 14. It will be apparent that any
desired number of rollers 76 and 78 may be provided around the
inner periphery of the framework 64 to adequately support the
rotating assembly 14.
I also prefer to support a plurality of conically-shaped member
82 in the outer edge portion of the central rotating assembly
14. Each conically-shaped member 82 may be easily formed out of
a suitable sheet material, such as aluminum or plastic, and is
supported at its opposite ends by suitable trunions 84 to extend
through the truss comprising the frame of the central rotating
assembly 14. The conically-shaped members 82 are preferably
provided in circumferentially spaced relation around the
assembly 14, as illustrated in Figure 5, and are positioned to
move through simulated electromagnets 86 supported around the
frame 46, as illustrated in Figures 2 and 4. Each simulated
electromagnet 86 may be formed in horseshoe shape out of any
suitable sheet material, and is provided with tubing or the like
88 around a portion thereof to simulate the winding of an
electromagnet. I further prefer to secure a plurality of plates
90 in spaced relation 14 to simulate capacitor plates in a
spacecraft. The plates 90 may be formed out of any suitable
material such as aluminum-laminated masonite to provide a
The inner rotating assembly 14 is driven by a friction or dead
wheel 92 pivotally supported on the tubular member 18, as
illustrated in Figure 6, engaging circular plate 94 and 96
carried by the inner rotating assembly 14 and the frame 46,
respectively. The plates 94 and 96 are arranged in vertically
spaced relation with sufficient distance therebetween to
frictionally engage opposite portions of the wheel 92. It will
therefore be apparent that when the frame 46 is turned in one
direction, the plate 96 will engage the periphery of the wheel
92 to drive the wheel 92 and in turn drive the central rotating
assembly in the opposite direction by frictional engagement of
the wheel 92 with the plate 94. Therefore, the various
conically-shaped members 82 will be moved successively through
the simulated electromagnets 86 and give the appearance of the
generation of electrical energy.
The cabin 16 is supported on the upper end of the tubular
supporting member 18 and is rigidly secured to the member 18 by
bracing 100 to move with the supporting member 18 and to be
prevented from rotating with the shell 12 or rotating assembly
14. Additional support is provided by a plurality of rollers 101
carried by the frame 46 engaging a complementary track on the
bottom of the cabin. The cabin 6 is constructed out of a
suitable framework 102 such as aluminum laminated with masonite,
on the outer surface of the framework and any other suitable
material 106, such as masonite, around the inner surface of the
framework. It will be understood that substantially strong
members 108 must be provided in the floor of the cabin 16 to
adequately support passengers in the cabin. As illustrated in
Figure 7, a plurality of transparent windows 110 are provided
adjacent the outer and inner peripheries of the floor of the
cabin 16, through which the passengers in the cabin may
adequately view the inner rotating assembly 14 and the frame 46.
Passengers may either stand or sit in the cabin 16 and may gain
entrance and exit from the cabin through suitable doors 112 as
illustrated in Figure 2. It will also be noted that the upper
edge portion 114 of the outer shell 12 is extended upwardly to
overlap the lower end portion of the cabin 16. A portion of the
upper edge 114 of the shell 12 is removed, as at 116 in Figure
1, such that passengers may enter the cabin 16 through the doors
112. Simulated portholes 118 are provided around the upper
edge portion of the cabin 16 to further simulate an
interplanetary spacecraft. It will be noted, however, that the
portholes 118 are preferably covered with an opaque material on
the inside of the cabin 16 to prevent the passengers from seeing
familiar objects outside the cabin 16.
A dome 120 is preferably provided in the top central portion of
the cabin 16 and the under surface thereof is covered with a
suitable material 122, such as cloth or the like, which will
display a movie scene. A projector 124 is suitably mounted in
the central portion of the cabin 16 to project an animated movie
onto the screen 122 during the operation of the amusement device
to give passengers the impression of interplanetary flight.
In summarizing the operation of the referred amusement device,
the passengers are directed into the cabin 16 through the
opening 116 in the upper edge portion of the shell 12 and
through the doors 112. The doors 112 are then securely fastened
in close depositions and the passengers are thereafter prevented
from viewing any object outside the amusement device during the
simulated flight. The drive motor 40 is then placed in operation
to rotate the shell 12 and frame 46 in one direction, while the
friction wheel 92 drives the inner rotating assembly 14 in an
opposite direction. Passenger sin the cabin 16 will then view
the movement of the inner assembly 124 and the frame 46 through
the windows 110 to receive the impression of watching the inner
workings of a spacecraft. Also, suitable lighting effects (not
shown) are preferably provided in the sell 12 to illuminate the
moving parts. Simultaneously with rotation of the shell 12 and
the inner rotating assembly 14, the jacks 26 are actuated to
raise the supporting member 18 on the stanchion 22. This upward
movement of the supporting member 18 will be rather minor, but
will be sufficient to give the sensation of rising to the
passengers in the closed cabin 16. It will be observed that when
the supporting member 18 is raised, the shell 12 and the inner
rotating assembly 14 are simultaneously raised to retain the
vertical relationship between the cabin and the remainder of the
apparatus viewed by passengers in the cabin. Also,
simultaneously with rotation of the shell 12 and rotating
assembly 14, the movie is displayed by the projector 124 on
screen 122 on the dome of the cabin to give the passengers the
impression of approaching one or more heavenly bodies. The jacks
26 are then operated in the opposite direction to lower the
cabin 16 and the movie projected by the projector 124 may then
provide an impression on the screen 122 that the passengers are
returning to earth.
From the foregoing it will be apparent that the present
invention provides an amusement device which will give the
impression and sensation to patrons or passengers of the device
that they are taking an interplanetary flight. The device
includes counter-rotating sections simulating the inner workings
of a spacecraft and these moving sections may be easily viewed
by passengers in the device. Also, the passengers are slightly
raised during operation of the device to simulate flight from
the earth and a movie is simultaneously displayed to give the
impression of approaching a heavenly body. It will also be
apparent that the construction of the amusement device is such
that the device may be easily disassembled and moved from one
location to another. It will further be apparent that the
present amusement device is simple in construction, may be
economically manufactured and will have a long service life.
Changes may be made in the combination and arrangement of parts
or elements as heretofore set forth in the specification and
shown in the drawings, it being understood that changes may be
made in the embodiment disclosed without departing from the
spirit and scope of the invention as defined in the following
I claim: --- [Claims not included here]
As your eyes take in the shapes and relationships in these
illustrations of the miniature model you are about to build,
your reasoning will let you understand much about the invisible
forces that contribute to the noise-free, pressure-free, and
vibrationless sensation of floating flight to be experienced in
the passenger living rooms aboard the OTC-X1. It will be very
much like reclining in an overstuffed armchair on our
comfortable old planet Earth.
It mechanical behavior being like that of a giant gyroscope,
and electrically like a planet with its own atmosphere and force
field, the OTC-X1 craft will know nothing of sound barriers,
shockwaves, skin friction, turbulence, or G-strains.
Neither will its occupants need fear any harm from cosmic
forces, gamma rays, x-rays, or other radiation, because the
OTC-X1 craft will either be using or absorbing all such forces,
or by the pressure and polarity of its own force field, be
shielded against their penetration.
While the commutation system for the actual energized flight
model craft is not shown together with the other components on
this on this sheet, its design for the circuitry of
electro-gravitational forces permits an environmental
surroundment of equal and opposite pressures in and from all
direction, whose circumference is nowhere and whose center is
everywhere relative to the universal field.
Thus, by imitating nature, we become one with nature --- by
translating her shapes and duplicating her motions we join
forces with natural energies and become magnetically independent
of manmade limitations, man-constructed barriers, man-invented
feats, and man-imposed controls! [&c, &c., yada yada

Excerpts from an Interview with Ralph Ring
Ralph Ring is a technician who worked with Otis T. Carr in the
late 1950s and early 1960s. Ring stresses that resonance is the
key to working with nature: "Resonance. You have to work with
nature, not against her." According to Ring, when the model
Utrons were powered up to operational speed, "...the metal
turned to Jell-o. You could push your finger right into it. It
ceased to be solid. It turned into another form of matter, which
was as if it was not entirely here in this reality. That's the
only way I can attempt to describe it. It was uncanny, one of
the weirdest sensations I've ever felt."
Ralph Ring describes Otis Carr thus: "He was an unquestioned
genius. Tesla had recognized his quality immediately and had
taught him everything he knew. He was inspired, and – like Tesla
– seemed to know exactly what to do to get something to work. He
was a private man and was also very metaphysical in his
thinking. I think the fact that he was not formally trained in
physics helped him. He was not constrained by any preconceived
ideas. As crazy as it sounds now, he was determined to fly to
the moon and really believed it could be done. I believed it. We
Ring described his "flight" in the Utron craft, saying that
"Fly is not the right word. It traversed distance. It seemed to
take no time. I was with two other engineers when we piloted the
45' craft about ten miles. I thought it hadn't moved --- I
thought it had failed. I was completely astonished when we
realized that we had returned with samples of rocks and plants
from our destination. It was a dramatic success. It was more
like a kind of teleportation.
"What's more, time was distorted somehow. We felt we were in
the craft about fifteen or twenty minutes. We were told
afterwards that we'd been carefully timed as having been in the
craft no longer than three or four minutes. I still have no
complete idea how it worked. We just built it exactly according
to Carr's instructions. Everything had to be perfect... it all
had to be just so, or it he said it would not work: a kind of
symbiotic state between man and machine.
"The Utron was the key to it all. Carr said it accumulated
energy because of its shape, and focused it, and also responded
to our conscious intentions. When we operated the machine, we
didn't work any controls. We went into a kind of meditative
state and all three of us focused our intentions on the effect
we wanted to achieve. It sounds ridiculous, I know. But that's
what we did, and that's what worked. Carr had tapped into some
principle which is not understood, in which consciousness melds
with engineering to create an effect. You can't write that into
equations. I have no idea how he knew it would work. But it did.
"...There are two secrets to making the alien saucers work. One
is their advanced engineering, and the other is their mental
"I've lost count of the number of people who have refused to
believe what happened. I no longer talk about it. It's no fun
being laughed at and ridiculed. But I've described it exactly as
it occurred. One day someone will build the disk just as we did
and they'll have the same experience. All his blueprints still
exist. Nowadays, it would all be done with digital and solid
state circuitry --- no moving parts would be necessary.
"I've heard that the aliens use the same principle to operate
their craft. Their physics seems to work in harness with their
consciousness. The craft amplifies the power of their minds.
Their craft won't operate without the pilots. I've heard that's
why we can't operate their craft --- or, at any rate, we can't
operate them the way they do. We're just not adept enough
mentally and spiritually. So there are two secrets to making the
saucers work. One is the advanced engineering, and the other is
the mental and spiritual ability. We may have duplicated some of
the first, but we may be a long way from the second yet."

The following summary was sent from a Ship's Paper of October
30,1957, after being copied from a CW News broadcast while at
sea. It is unusual because no other report of this announcement
reached us. It certainly is sensational --- if true.
Baltimore, MD (October 29):--- A group of inventors claimed
Monday they have been able to utilize gravity in circular
motion machines capable of powering everything from hearing aids
to space cruisers.
Otis T. Carr, president of OTC Enterprises, Inc., detailed his
claims in an interview and demonstration of a crude model of a
circular motion machine which he said is the principle of a
"free energy circular foil" spacecraft he can build, if someone
puts up the money.
He said the machine can be adapted to devices of any size to
produce continuous power absolutely free of dissipation.
Its immediate application, Carr said, would be in a spacecraft
--- which would be able to fly among the planets in controlled
It could land or take off as desired on the earth, the moon or
any planet in the earth's solar system, he said.
Carr and his associates said their claims are based on the most
simple practical applications of natural laws and discoveries in
science and mathematics. They have no formal education in
science or engineering.
He said the same "free energy" which causes the earth to rotate
on its axis and orbit around the sun will turn a machine he
described as two cones joined at their circular bases.
When the rotation of such a machine reaches a certain velocity
relative to the earth's orbital velocity, Carr said, it will
Carr said the core of his space ship would be a huge battery
which would spin at the velocity of the external craft and which
would be recharged, he said, by its motion. Carr declared such a
battery, built to any size, could be designed to power the
largest electric generating plant, operate an automobile,
heat a house or power any conceivable machine or device.
The principle on which Carr said such circular motion machines
would operate is that "any vehicle accelerated to an axis
rotation relative to its attractive inertial mass (the earth)
immediately becomes activated by free space energy and acts as
an independent force."

"The Saucer That
W. E. Du Soir
The serious field of UFO's and flying saucer research received
a setback at Oklahoma City in late April when a highly
publicized launching attempt by O.T.C. Enterprises of Baltimore,
Md., resulted in failure. Hundreds of persons had been
invited to Oklahoma City by Otis T. Carr to watch him "launch a
six-foot prototype model of the O.T.C. X-1, a space craft which
works on 'utron' energy." Those who were there came away
disappointed. The flying saucer did not fly. The six-foot
model, well-hidden in a warehouse, never even got to the
launching site, or to the amusement park called Frontier City,
where it was to have been displayed beside a 45-foot version of
the same X-1 which will be an amusement "ride" in the near
The launching site was to have been a gravel pit eight miles
north of Oklahoma City where Carr claimed the saucer would rise
"400 to 600 feet." Launching time was set for 3:00 PM
Sunday, April 19. Two and a half hours past this time Major
Wayne Aho finally announced that the launching had to be
postponed because of "technical difficulties." Later it was
stated by O.T.C. officials that one bearing housing was "off
one-sixteenth of an inch." Most of the major flying saucer
clubs had ignored the "launching". Except for a story in early
April there was no advance news on Carr's experiment in Oklahoma
One Oklahoma City television reporter expressed the general
feeling of the townspeople, "This thing will never leave the
ground. And I feel that a great deal of the ballyhoo they're
giving out is tied in with the ride at Frontier City. I have
tried constantly to get in to see the saucer model, but they've
kept it hidden." Equally well hidden was Carr himself. He
was finally located in Mercy Hospital, Room 302, by John Nebel,
the famed "Long John" of WOR, New York City. Carr did not
show up at a meeting at a local church the day before the
scheduled launching but a taped speech was delivered to the 70
people who attended. "Barring any flat tires," Carr said,
"I feel that history will be made Sunday afternoon when the
model of the O.T.C. X-1 is launched here."
Carr did not leave his hospital room until Monday, when he was
taken to the home of Major Aho, the man in charge of publicity
for the company. A scheduled "victory" dinner was pretty dismal
Sunday night, where again a taped message from Carr was
presented. Monday morning at 5 AM a rumor spread that the
model launching would again be attempted. At that early hour a
group of a half-dozen people, including Norman Colton, Carr's
chief aide, went to the warehouse. But it was three hours later
before anyone else showed up and most of those who had come to
see the model had given up in disgust and left. Many
believers in UFO's, although skeptical, had traveled to Oklahoma
City to see what developed. All of them had left town by Monday
One member of a Pennsylvania saucer club commented, "I don't
know what's going on but I feel they never had any intention of
trying to launch the model. I could not see any plans in sight
for the model and, in fact, I understand, that a Mr. Maywood
Jones presented only what he called "three-dimensional
illustrations" of Carr's ideas." Monday afternoon there
was more activity in the warehouse and finally, around 4 PM, the
model was "turned on" and revolved, although it showed no signs
of taking off from the table on which it sat. "We hoped to
try to launch it again but unfortunately one of the seams burst
during the test," an O.T.C. official said. "We still hope
to have a launching shortly," another member of Carr's group
added. Left unanswered were such questions as:
1) Why was there no publicity about the launching in Oklahoma
City for two weeks before the model was supposed to fly?
2) Why did Carr ready a taped message for delivery at the
"victory dinner" a day before the scheduled launching?
3) How could any engineer make a mistake of one-16th of an inch
in a precision part? This would be similar to a navigator
landing an airplane 300 miles off course. A mistake of
one-10,000th of an inch can be a major engineering calamity.
Carr was apparently undaunted by the weekend's developments. He
again commented, "This indeed is an historic occasion."
Questioned about the failures of his model, he added, "The
theory itself has been proven. The model will go up, if not this
week, then next week or next month." Mr. Carr also has
stated that he and Major Wayne Aho will "fly to the moon in a
flying saucer on December 7, 1959."
