“Who is credited with ‘the theory of perpetual motion’ ? 'Several scientist (sic) has been credited for their theories of Perpetual Motion such as Isaac Newton, Nathan Coppedge, and Albert Einstein.” ---KGB Answers Nathan Coppedge is renowned in the dubious field of theoretical perpetual motion machines. The book offers a perspective on Mr. Coppedge’s notable scientific discoveries including the Nov. 10, 2013 over-unity experiment, and his July 3rd, 2014 discovery of a “master angle” purported to allow objects to roll upwards. It also includes other discoveries, in such areas as block constructions, balance, counterbalance, angularity, Newton’s Laws of Motion, etc. The book promises relatively invigorating reading with many of the qualities of nascient scientific discovery.
On July 3rd, 2014 I discovered the Master Angle, a particular configuration of horizontally-disposed slope and a particularly angled backboard which (I believe) permits an object to roll UPWARD.
This is possible because H - V > V (H).
This is possible, I have proved (or believe I have proved) in very particular configurations (I believe the equation is not enough by itself, but rather there must be a particular ratio of weight placement between the horizontal and the vertical, including consideration of the height of the marble relative to the horizontal slope, affecting the angularity of the backboard).
I have tested with a level, and the bubble is close to the middle, but sometimes indicates upward slope. The optimal case is shown in my video, Master Angle / Reverse Gravity 1.

The author describes a series of themes binding the concept of semantics to that of metaphysics. The themes are light on mere academicism, and heavy on philosophical phenomena. The difficulty is that semantics is a heavy theme with light treatment. Metaphysics, when it does not adopt heavy assumptions, remains a heavy theme in which major conclusions are (predominately in intellectual history) a rarity. The author makes an effort to solve this double-conundrum in a conversational style, by introducing a series of themes, including “Dimentia,” “Realism,” “Dreams,” “Knowledge / Death,” “Madness,” “Filling in the Gaps,” “The Pigeon-Holed Straw Man” etc. Included are a number of brilliant arguments defending the idea that semantics is intrinsic to our concept of reality. This text offers a gradual resolution of the perceived problem between semantics and reality.
The book is available on Amazon HERE (for only $6.00 paperback + shipping)
FROM THE INTRODUCTORY NOTES: “Philosophy has not always been viewed in a purely symbolic manner. Most notably, recently, there has been a turn towards ‘pure literature’ and ‘pure math’ to explain reality. In this book, as a departure from the norm, philosophy defines itself almost exclusively through symbolism. The territory of symbolism is vast, and the methods that it entails are no less impressive. With considerate study, these aspects may even apply to the moderns in profound ways. The title of this book --- “Arche-Logos’ is meant to suggest the eternity of philosophy, and the necessarily symbolic importance of this most magnificent study.” Included in this text are seven major methods of implied philosophical importance: Analyptic Diagrams, the IEOCh Method, Vesselexts, AOLT-There Diagrams, Concise Atrixes, Apertures, and Temporal Map-Types. The book is now available from Amazon HERE.
This guide is intended to provide some useful insights into the nature of alien communication / communicating with extra-terrestrials. The book includes a number of humorously-minded illustrations to encourage creative thinking. FROM THE INTRODUCTION: “By the end of this guide you should have a better idea of what it means to communicate with an extra-terrestrial. Although there are some intrinsic fears, the guide offers the same approach which is likely to be encountered on the path to genuine communication, namely a work-intensive technique, following the mantra of: ‘Just add it to the pile.’ This technique might combine with other techniques to benefit long-term knowledge.”
The stories in this collection meet two criteria: that they are 'classics', and that they may be considered 'banned' literature, for various reasons. However, the author added an additional stipulation, that he must have crafted them himself. Although some will see traces of traditional storytelling (mafia-stories, science fiction, horror, tales of the macabre are just part of this eclectic collection), the common theme is the unique criterion of classical literature. There is greater emphasis on storytelling than in the original One-Page Classics. This volume will be updated when the author has added additional stories. Currently there are 35 Stories, with a brief Introduction. It is now available from Amazon HERE.
I also have my own quotes (Nathan Larkin Coppedge: philosopher, artist, inventor, poet, still a student):
1. "How to count a step along the path, if the path is one?" 2. "To cause harm to living things is to accept and revel in the imperfections of the world" 3. "Existence is the zone of neutrals"
There is also the phenomenological reference to the concept of 'das ding ann sich' --- the thing in itself. This mirrors Greek concepts of Haecceity ("thisness") and Eudaemonia ("Happiness for the common good").
There is also the traditional phrase "existence precedes essence", which has been re-used so much as to lose almost all meaning of attribution. A similar phrase is "existence is intentionality".
In some other cases, Sartre would be a good bet, for example, his concept of Despair.
There are some quotes by Sartre that may have been brought up:
"I exist, that is all, and I find it nauseating." ---J.P. Sartre
"One is still what one is going to cease to be and already what one is going to become. One lives one’s death, one dies one’s life." ---J.P. Sartre
Again, Nathan Coppedge: "While I die I am dead," meaning immortality.
This guide follows an established method, similar method to that used in the other volumes of the series, such as the children’s guide and the young adult guide. However, as a notable difference from the others, additional room is granted for imagination and wordplay, by using a combination of rhymes and concealed imagery. Poets with a modern, slant-rhyming, or traditional-rhyming style will find plenty to glean from this short and sweet, yet subtle, guide to the art of poetry. It includes veiled technicalities as well as blunt examples of what to do and not to do in poetry, encompassing a broad range of strategies that may serve as the last word throughout a lifetime of creative wordplay.

Babies also share a kinship with the problems of life. In this expert guide, based on a proven psychological technique, Nathan Coppedge details the precise pattern to creating intelligence in newborn children and up to two years old --- whether they are ‘sensitive’ or ‘insensitive’, ‘gifted’ or ‘de-sensitized’, early-talkers or unconscious ‘zombies’. Included is a baby’s guide designed for reading aloud. It involves image-focusing descriptions and crystal-clear encouragement, combined with a technique involving simple long-term promises and heightened imagination. Also included at the end is a brief parents’ guide for focusing the book’s reader on the task ahead. A lucid, clear body of thought designed to assist any infant in crossing the most fundamental barriers, the barriers that are often neglected and ignored until later-life problems emerge. Here is the opportunity to clear the cobwebs and improve the life of your child ---- where it counts, at the very beginning.

I measured from the floor on the right and left edges of the marble's movement, and it appears that the right side was higher than the left. Mixed results with a level, although clearly when measured on a partial contingency, the slope is upwards.
My explanation for the theory is that the forwards angularity of the marble is steeper than the difference between the horizontal slope and the vertical slope, corresponding to the two pieces of cardboard underneath the marble. A very special case, if true.
with a gentleman named Adam Rabinowitz who claims to be a South African businessman.
He claims he has sold a computer program called Imagin8, and is now helping with a 'commercial pilot' to try selling books in South African cafes.
As it happens, I am a self-published author who happens to qualify for this unique program.
According to Google maps, the address he gives is a real location, although it is unmarked, and there are several small security firms located nearby. It seems plausible that he could afford to live there, if rents tend to be cheap, and he is a real business person.
The business agreement he gave me seemed pretty generous, although without promising much money.
If any of my blog visitors think that this is a total scam, please comment.
I for one, would like to believe I could sell a small number of books in South Africa.
Once in a blue moon, but still. I estimate that if it is legit I would make a maximum of $400 in the first year, so it is not like there's a risk of promising too much money.
He has suggested that I give only $70 and he claims that it is mostly a one-time payment that would help 'push it off the ground'. It seems accurate that the books would cost $6.50 to print, meaning that the $70 really just compensates the business for the printing costs. So that seems okay.
I have about 16 four-leaf clovers, and 2 five-leaf clovers, if that makes any difference to your judgment.
Please comment with your opinions on this matter.
Could this be the 'only' legitimate businessman in South Africa? Or am I delusional?
I am a philosopher, artist, inventor, and poet (in some capacity), and a member of the International Honor Society for Philosophers.
