### Case Examples in Perpetual Motion

Many scientific observers are concretists on the subject of over-unity. They think its either-or, and some work and some don't, if any work at all. But I find that view is far too simplistic. It's not that nothing works, it's that most examples are too difficult to be easy. Here are some case-examples proving the minimum (or scientific maximum).

The Escher Machine --- My recent case example observes that an object can roll upwards. If the in-between-connecting downwards-slopes are not steep enough for motion, then it doesn't work. If they are steep enough, it does work (the primary slopes are slightly upwards-inclined, with sideways-directed gravity).

Motive Mass Machine --- In Iteration 2 (3?), motion is permitted if the proportionality allows significant motion, and if the vertically-falling mass has enough mass simultaneously to move the partially-supported weight by pulley. This seems possible, but perhaps problems will emerge. I have temporarily stalled building the project because it seems difficult. Actually, I never got very far, except to prove that a free-falling mass can move an equal mass slightly upwards if it rolls.

Tilt Motor --- Motion is possible if leverage can extend slope. My first experiment succeeded, and the next two failed.

Repeat Lever Type 2 --- A cycle is possible if a counterweighted lever can lift a weight 180 degrees, through a cross-sectional loop, through the use of a supporting track. The remainder of the loop consists of a vertical drop, where the mobile weight activates the lever. Some proportions show this may be possible, so long as the mobile weight can be lifted. The length of the lever can be extended as necessary, since reduced altitudes corresponding with longer levers actually reduce resistance to the rising motion.

Modular Trough Leverage ---- There is strong evidence going for the trough principle. In this case, construction must permit each modular unit to end and begin at the same altitude, which simply means that the vertical drop is equal to the differential between the angularity of the lever and the angularity of the track. Collectively, no altitude needs to be gained. Although some of the peculiarities still have to be worked out, there is evidence pointing towards the functionality of this design. My video titled Successful Perpetual Motion Experiment 1 gives evidence that it may be possible to trigger the next modular unit without loss of altitude. As dubious as this evidence may seem, it is at least VERY CLOSE to proving each unit can move from rest to an adequate altitude, and IF THAT IS THE CASE, then perpetual motion IS possible. For that reason, it is a worthwhile experiment. Note, that the levers at the beginning of the tracks can be bent downwards, so that only when the lever is directed downward does it cause motion. From the upwards position, it can be triggered to have greater motion, resulting in greater movement of the mobile weight (in theory).
