Quotable Quotes November 2018

"There are times when I think pure theory is actually less advanced than engineering." --Nathan Coppedge

"Real life is what you make of it, not what the news says it is... There is nothing making life unimportant except limited assumptions and limits on categories of function." --Nathan Coppedge

Nathan Coppedge Quotable Quotes September - October 2018

"It’s an interesting fact that as much as I like developing philosophical systems, I am terrible at developing my own opinions." --Nathan Coppedge

“What’s genuinely new is always forthcoming.” —Nathan Coppedge, Sept 2018

"This is why I don't think it's bad to be poor; because I haven't lost everything." ---Nathan Coppedge

"Yes, great good dreams of practicality as I call them. When impossibility is possible, impossibility is impossible." ---Nathan Coppedge

“The point isn’t to be expensive if you think you’re worth infinite money.” —Nathan Coppedge

"Just like I support science, religious people support the devil." ---Nathan Coppedge

"I don’t yet have a perfect paradigm or a life of many dramas. My life is not a divine spectacle, but instead an attempt at intelligence. So, as it is, it is the things which have a lasting effect on myself as a person which seem most brilliant, like sanity, trying to be immortal, realizing my identity concept, and having stick-tuitiveness to make my biggest ideas into real things, which is quite ambitious." ---Nathan Coppedge

"People think I’m exaggerating just because my projects sound so extreme, then they are disappointed it isn’t made of technicolor mithril diamondstone. But give me a break, IT’S PERPETUAL MOTION!!!!" ---Nathan Coppedge

"Here are some of the most misunderstood things (about knowledge): 1. How much it depends on us: really, as far as we are concerned, there is no knowledge without US. Therefore, WE are important for knowledge. WE can be optimistic as far as knowledge, because OUR TRUE KNOWLEDGE CONCERNS US. 2. How difficult it is to create: knowledge is much easier to create than people think. Many things constitute sophisticated knowledge if treated correctly. Many things can be knowledge merely by adding careful respect and critical appreciation. 3. How much of it there is. Many people think there is infinite nihilistic knowledge, but it is more like there are infinite Fall day epiphanies. 4. How deep it is. Many of us assume knowledge that is deep is untranslatable, but in fact deepness is the first fact for communicating knowledge. Deepness is no more than a simple essence. 5. How captive we are to it. Actually, we are the agents of change that decide the knowledge. The knowledge is beholden to us more than we are to it. The biggest strides often happen in a short time by changing our minds." ---Nathan Coppedge

"Perpetual motion cars, self-running apartments, sculpture gardens, Rube Goldberg machines for eccentrics, toys lots of toys, luxury toys, luxury ‘archetypes’, perpetual motion jewelry, perpetual motion survival habitats, perpetual motion money-making devices, perpetual motion energy investments, perpetual motion defense contracts, perpetual transportation systems, ecological standalone cities, manufacturing, conceptual art, national monuments, urban design, occult playthings, the list goes endlessly on…" ---Nathan Coppedge, October 2018

Is Nathan Coppedge Worthy of the Nobel Prize!?


The falling ratio is 3 versus 1.25. The rising ratio is 1.25 versus 0.5+. Good numbers.

The counterweight does have a lot of mass, but it has less effective leverage, which my math teacher taught me still makes a difference.

I asked him to tell me everything he knew about leverage, and it took him like three weeks as I recall. I lapped it up.

If there is friction in the 3/4 Vertical Lever, the counterweight will be maximized around 7X to <12x 0.25="3" 12="" 12x="" 1x="" 3x="" and="" as="" for="" is="" lever.="" leverage="" mass="" met="" p="" resistance="" the="" where="" x="">
I'm pretty much done explaining that design. I'm getting excited about what models might be produced. What I'm hoping for is: 1. A square or rectangular track structure set at significantly less than 22.5 degrees with two longish rectangular slots, each about 4 - 6 inches long. The larger one should be at least twice as wide to permit the basket or fork to free-fall, attached to the lever from below the slots. 2. Short straight barriers or walls set around both tracks at least up to 3/4 of the marble at the relevant point, but with some spacing on the smaller track to allow the relevant size marble to move freely. There may be some slight flexibility especially with larger balls and marbles. The two slots should be very narrowly separated with only one wall between. 3. A deflecting board should be used, slightly longer than the width of the walls of the smaller slot, and directed into the top of the larger slot. 4. The change in height of the entire length of the slots should be slightly more extreme than the variation in the arc of the end of the lever where the basket is located. This permits deflection into the basket from a slightly higher altitude at the top, and return into the narrower slot at the base. This fourth feature may place restrictions on the overall length of the slots relative to the length of the lever. 5. The ratio of the lever shall be 3/4 or 3:1, the long end being the end operated by the marble. 6. The weight ratio shall always use whatever marble is used as the standard of measurement. I have found ideal values tend to place the counterweight at barely >7 to definitely less than 12X marble mass. Earlier calculations assumed a median rather than an average was desirable, and so the ideal number is located higher than before. 7. The pivot of the lever is to be located beneath and not very far from the top end of the track. 20 inches length seems to be the most workable number for serious experiments. The lever should be nearly vertically disposed, meaning the pivot point is deep under the track, but simewhat outside it to create the angle. The angle should not be perfectly vertical, but rather still lean somewhat to the side at it's highest motion, perhaps at least 6 degrees. FINALLY, if the sideways transition between tracks is fairly narrow compared to the overall scale and size of the marble, transitions should be fairly easy to facilitate.

One way to construct it is to use a largish ball and have the larger slot the same size as the walls of the smaller slot, but with the slot being as wide as the walls for the larger slot. This allows some exciting standardization.
