Successful Test Confirmation, Weeks Later

My experiment on November 10th did not include confirmation by using a level.

Now I have used a level to confirm that the track I built out of cardboard (the 'trough' of the modular trough leverage device, which has been partially built) conforms to the requirement of including an upwards-oriented slope.

This means the device, even in it's present form, IS capable of recovering all movement, from a position of rest, including some overall upwards movement of the entire apparatus. Although the counterweight moves downwards during that time, the mobile weight is later able to operate the counterweight, compensating it for it's usefulness.

So, according to my observations, even in it's present form, this is an OVER-UNITY DEVICE!

Perpetual motion should be within reach, although I have doubts about my ability to build a full-scale device in my living room any time soon, due to space constraints. I also do not have all of the appropriate building materials presently. Maybe I can order aluminum pipettes online, or maybe they are hard to locate. Either way, there is a space constraint on building a model at the same scale. Larger would be better, but such a device wouldn't even fit in my apartment.

How to Write Aphorisms

Book Description

Nathan Coppedge, previously the author of the 1-Page-Classics, describes a comprehensive body of techniques advanced enough to yield full-fledged aphorisms of any length and complexity.

This title is to be released in 2014.

Ninesquare Notebook

Book Description

As Nathan Coppedge writes in The Dimensional Philosopher's Toolkit, "The amelioration of jagged potencies is really the second center". This text was his early inspiration on that subject, and in some ways more ambitious. It was here first where Nathan realized that a new method of categorical deduction using exclusive opposites was possible, and also where he later, upon revising, discovered that deductions could proceed indefinitely in binary form. This is savory philosophy, and the effect is avant-garde. Find the source insights of this most profound and knowledge-oriented methodology.

This title is to be published in 2014.

God's Tractatus

Book Description

Mr. Coppedge (previously the author of The Dimensional Philosopher‘s Toolkit) extends his objective philosophy into the realm of the theological, with a comprehensive index of the transformations of God. The material is based on an essay written on the principle of immortality some months earlier. Sixty-four categories of God have been expanded into 1024 proverbs or aphorisms establishing interdependent relationships between aspects of divine manifestation, and especially God’s role in ethical decisions and metaphysics.

This title is to be released in 2014.

Poems by God

Book Description

“The book is inspired incidentally by my father’s idea, that someone ought to write a book called ‘Poems, Bye God’, written for atheists… [However] I began the project on an assumption that these poems were in fact written by God…Coming from a Unitarian Church, my beliefs were not openly religious, but I felt that from the value of poetry I could be consoled with religious belief, even if at other times it seemed like suspended disbelief…Around the same time I began this book I conceived of the idea that religion is only for God... [Later]  again I felt conflicted, as I realized that the poems did have threads of reason which bore out their meanings between the different small verses…The meaning of my work, if it could remain in the project was that God made them originally…”

This title is to be released in 2014.

I have updated my website

at http://www.nathancoppedge.com

It now contains more future book previews and a diagram of an over-unity device which I believe to be proven to work, based on an experimental project from last month.

Of course, the main portion of that site at this point is the http://www.nathancoppedge.com/Perpetual_Motion pages. For those that haven't investigated, that is the main original purpose of that website.

More Evidence of Madness (Scientists, Apes, and Bananas)

“Even generalism is a form of specialism
when it has a method”

“Scientists, people say, are engineers
of knowledge”

“The greatest intelligence is rarely achieved
without being specific”

“Some say that life in general is a vast
exception, a specialized language in
the face of many unrecognized
misfortunes”

Quotes from my book The Dimensional Critic's Toolkit, the Singular Sourcebook, A Book of Quotations, in a section called "On Specialism". The goal is to have at least four quality quotations on a wide variety of important subjects. The book is not to be confused with the DPT. The DCT is due to be published around 2018, unless I get ahead of myself. I have considered re-titling the book to "The Dimensional Book of Quotations," except if it is a volume of the encyclopedia, it should fit the Dimensional Title Toolkit format, and 'quotations' doesn't fit the bill for that approach. The choice of the word 'Critic's' seems justified for a book of quotations, lending a unique feel. However, it does conflict a little bit with the subtitle for the first volume of the Dimensional Encyclopedia, which is 'The Essential Criticism'. So another name for the sixth volume, by implication, is "the unessential criticism, which can be taken to mean traditional knowledge, or things not subject to critique. Which takes it back to the question of whether it is a critic's toolkit in the first place. Perhaps only in an avant-garde sense. But I have begun to attach appendixes which explain how the approach to quotations relate to methods of criticism, and it has seemed to work so far. And considering that it is about 1/3 complete, it is likely that the attitude will continue to work. I'm also not sure what else fits after 'aesthetics' in terms of the overall plan of the encyclopedia. I have to really blow some dirt / spend some variables, in the high-minded critical sense, if I want the encyclopedia to succeed. Apparently, to appeal to critics, I have to be a critic myself. And this is one of the creative approaches to that attitude. The earlier books (Volumes 1-5) set up the dimensional tradition. Whereas the following books (Volumes 7 - 16 or so) strategically reject the role of the critic, and therefore maintain vitality.

I hope readers will approve, although I'm not yet sure if I'll have a large volume of readers.

By the way, the original motive for this post was the observation that all the quotes under "On Specialism" seem to relate to a devious scientist who wants his ape subject to slip on a banana. Oh well.

More Recent Quotations by Nathan Coppedge

"Complexity and potential compose the potential of neutrality, an infinite system with no inherent energy...Numbers are disorganized lists, potential categories.Categories are forms of completeness, statements of meaning. Shapes are morphizations of coherency, potential systems. Systems grant meaning to numbers, by losing form...Duplications of functions and paradoxes may occur. It may be prudent to see these two phenomena as rationally identical" ---Nathan Coppedge, The Ninesquare Notebook (not yet published).

"This type of physics [metemphysics]... is the study of the materialism of ideas" ---Nathan Coppedge, from Metemphysics and the Philosophy of Concepts (Article).

"[T]he acceptance of populism is the benchmark of any attempt to improve democratic values...Perfect government can afford to be complex. And complex government can afford to be perfect. That much should be realized...[I]t is necessary on some level to intellectually engage the concept of government, ... for viable concepts based on existing government practices". ---Nathan Coppedge, The Inquisitive Quiz (Article)

Recent Quotations by Nathan Coppedge

"Exception is foundational for complexity" ---The Physics #100

"Physics may be the study of differences...Physics may be the study of inbetweens...Physics may be the study of energy...Physics may be the study of physics...Or it may be that physics concerns some as yet undefined idea" ---The Physics #228-232

"Politics has public and private motifs, past and future definitions of function" ---The Politics #64

"Beneath government lies the technology of citizenship" ---The Politics #100

"If you don't know how to live to 1000, you have a 50% chance of living to 500; If you don't live to 500, you have a 50% chance of living to 250..."---The Dimensional Immortality Toolkit (not yet published)

Coherent Neocodes As Economic-Political Hypertext (Recursive Ecology)

'Windowjarpool' - You have to make something of a jar in a pool: if it has sand, you can see all of it; if it's clean and clear, then you know it absolutely. But if you drop the jar, it's invisible. If you pee in the jar, it might be a yellow jar. But what if you're a scientist, with a window on the pool? The pee and sand doesn't always seem so significant. Part of what is significant about the pool is that it is fully clear and manifest.

'Minnowtarbowl' - Let's say you eat minnows. If one of the minnows eats a gob of paint, then you have to eat the paint. Unless the minnow has a special way of digesting. But how does the minnow know not to eat the paint? Do you want it to have a big brain? What if big brains know not to eat paint, but love to eat tar? What difference some little instructions would make!

'Terrajunkbowl' - We don't just have paint going into the ocean, we have diarrhea, and dish detergent, and other waste products. Some would say it's just a work of art, and life is always functional some how. But what if football players got tired of dirt, or if theologians declared that God was fecal matter (because it would be divine in any case), or if humanity decided it had to evolve beyond shit by dying? Does this mean it is the end of football, God, or humanity, or is there a solution to the 'junk bowl'?

'Terabunkerjew' - Now, what if we could solve all problems with a computer? How much depends on that? What if the computer is a waste product, or composed of irreplaceable materials? Doesn't it have to solve all problems, if it is a one-shot deal? And what if the computer user is solving personal problems (humorously, 'Cabbalah'), rather than global problems? Does that make the computer useless, or instead contribute to the value of waste products? And, what if it all looks like clear water? What if there's poison? What if the same problems apply to the brain? Are the first problems the most important or the final ones?

Interface Sequins

I have a concept of secret accesses which consist of perfected, abbreviated data channeled into new constructions. These are synergies or synapses of linguistic, ontological, and memetic knowledge, specifically in the context of hypothetical interface technology, such as virtual reality, 'mind-hacking', and other forms of potential cerebralism.

Here are some examples:

Pretzel Players: Somehow helps to understand Italy.

Noos: Greek concept of mind, or perhaps Athena's mind.

Alethosphere: Not just a noosphere, but something specific.

Pedural: 'Place-of-endurance'.

Pay Day: More and more often becoming a figurative place.

Of Fleas: A book for curmudgeons of knowledge.

Pandaemonium: That hell that isn't hell.

Archefactect: A small computer.

Boologos: An access to mathematics for philosophers.

Primary: An exchangeable name for some favoritism.

Pode: The central dot of this mereology.

Vect: Where you go when you have a rhetorical opinion.

Pede: Historical process place.

Railery: An artifact of conceptual engineering.

Etc.
