      You continue to miss the point. This has nothing to do with repeatedly kicking a ball. The diagram below speaks for itself.

      On the right side there are several balloons lifting "together" while it only takes the energy to fill one balloon to maintain the system. This is the multiplying effect.

      Nope, not missing the point I'd draw an equivalent diagram, but I'm too lazy :)
      Here's the lazy version

      -> -> -> -> -> ->O

      This is the diagram of the kicks I've done, plus the new kick on the right. Speaks for itself, really.

      There is the force of several kicks adding together (to the speed), while it only takes the energy of one kick to maintain the system (increase speed). At this moment, I am kicking it once, but it has the speed of 6 kicks! This is the multiplying effect.

      You can lead a horse to water but you cannot make it drink.
