Question for Engineers

I been "lurking" here and I hope that all have been satisfied. I been reading this and had seen it on TV. Is this possible and can it really work?

I, Joseph Newman, have repeatedly stated that mass means NOTHING if it does not have a MECHANICAL UNDERSTANDING . The equation for horsepower of rotating motor shaft so PROVES - "ft. lbs X rpm divided by 5252 HP". Yet that equation does not designate the TIME of said horsepower. Constant of mass - rpm implies horsepower per minute.
James Watt in the late 1700s who established the HP as a unit of measurement specifically stated that such a measurement was dependent upon TIME: "33,000 lbs 1 ft. per MINUTE."
Accordingly, the HP of a rotating shaft must be measured in HP per minute of rotating shaft or, in shorthand, HP of rotating shaft per SECOND. ["550 lbs 1 ft. per second."]
I show you now a simple MECHANICAL explanation of HP per second of TRUTH: Take a shaft and attach it to the center of 1 ft radius [2 ft. diameter] pulley. Now imagine that you rotate the shaft of one full rotation of 360 degrees in one SECOND. Then "you" have lifted 550 lbs 6.283 ft in one second! ["1 ft. radius gives 6.283 ft in circumference"] That is, 6.283 HP per second! Per rotation of shaft! Multiply by [60 rpm] 60 SECONDS that is 376.98 HP per MINUTE!
Said above is WRONG! Vague conventional HP equation gives only 6.283 HP per MINUTE!
The TRUTH of MECHANICAL explanation given by me has been applied to rotating shaft of 400 lb magnetic rotary of my revolutionary motor that will shock the world in the immediate future. IT WILL PROVE WHO IS THE MASTER OF MY REVOLUTIONARY ENERGY INVENTION!
Fact: Conventional equation must be changed to the following:
HP of rotating shaft of motor:
HP = ft lbs X RPM divided by 5252 X 60 = HP per MINUTE.

As someone who (used to but) can no longer fully comprehend anything but metric units of measurement I don't really get to use/nor have much interest in your imperial measurement equasion for HP of a rotating shaft - but for clarity and your information.... Horse Power is a unit of force not a unit of effort - therefore in the measurements that I use is the equal of kW. Effort is the measured force x time - therefore the measurement that I would use is kWh. We also differentiate between mech/elec and refrigeration capacity by using mech/elec kW and Refrigeration kWR (the ratio difference provides your coefficient of performance [COP]). We also use kVA to represent power supplied (Volts x Amps) / 1,000 as compared to electrical applied power kW (volts x amps x power factor) / 1,000.
There are many useful "rules of thumb" out there which provide usable practical estimates. By your addaption of them into "formula" you are tainting the use of these estimate guides.
Please saturate yourself in UV until you find clarity of thought and action... or maybe that's already happened only the results were confusion and disfunction.

Not too smart are ya mate? Obviously your little brain can't read, comprehend nor retain information very well.
These are not my "statement", "formulas", "adoptions", "imperial measurement equations", rather the person "Joseph Newman" who invented this machine and he has been supported by various people.
This has nothing to do with me directly, UV, nor does it particularly have to do with HVAC.
My "clarity and information" was just that it defies most principles and was asking some opinions. Was just a question for engineers.
Seems like you may be inhaling way too much fouled air. You might want to invest in some UV.
My only confusion is that where and who taught you in school, because you need to learn how to spell or use spell check. Maybe this could be a case of how a dysfunctional person (you) perceives others as dysfunctional?

Newman is a nutty "quack"....
I AM an engineer and unlike Mr. Newman graduated both High School and have a college degree that says so.
Newman appears to be a great con man as well a quack. Read this link...
http://www.phact.org/e/skeptic/newman.htm
While there is a lot of opinion here, the also base one heck of a lot of it on fact.
Let's face it... since the day a kid like me was playing erector sets, we dreamed of a 'perpetual motion machine' that would make us rich. I got over it... with knowledge. Apparently, Mr. Newman never has.
Engineers... by our nature and training... tend to be realistic and want to PROVE things to be real. This can be done through established mathematical theory... or by experiment. In neither case has Mr. Newman's wondrous inventions proves anything.. except the ability to suck money from poor, dumb suckers that will succumb to a good con.
Magnetic theory is fairly well established... and proven. Yep... DC motors are more efficient than AC ones, that's a fact. It also a fact that anytime you transfer ENERGY through magnetic-mechanical means... it is not as efficient as just using the energy in its native state.
Trying to use DC to generate AC... well, that takes place either by solid state electronics or mechanically. Frankly, electronics do a better job than Mr. Newman's machinations.
If the next great inventor figures out how to generate electricity out of thin air... without any mechanical or electronic intervention... Now THAT would be something. Unfortunately (or fortunately), I don't think Mr. Newman has access to a nuclear accelerator.
