Good News!

Someone is borrowing my pmm d&t book (Nathan Coppedge's Perpetual Motion Machine Designs & Theory) from the Newton Free Library now...

Some people, however, may want to own it for themselves. It's my most popular book (about 90 copies sold to date). Link here: Ignore the three-star reviews. It's one of the best books on perpetual motion.

Autobiography of the Inventor of Perpetual Motion


Numerous quacks have presented themselves throughout history. But no one---notably---has had the gall to write an autobiography making the claim that perpetual motion WAS invented. As the author argues, that is because it was NOT INVENTED YET! Using this simple but beautiful logic, the author (Nathan Coppedge, who has been noted for his work on perpetual motion machines) takes the reader on a romp through many of his early-life experiences, as an explanation for his own particular brand of genius. From masturbation to foreign languages, to madness, and elitism, this book has it all. The book includes photographs of the inventor and several of his inventions proven to have principles such as excess torque, over-unity, and recoverable vertical ascension from rest.

It is available now on Amazon:

Errata of the Mechanists #6

Perhaps perpetual matter does not yet exist in space.

It may be possible to perpetuate matter. It is a vast contingency.

"THE MEANING OF PAIN" / Quotations

Prefiguring this concept is the idea that the only meaning anyone could derive from pain is pleasure. So, these are quotations meant to inspire pleasure, which began with difficult, 'painful' concepts, including the concept of pain itself.

"The world is full of the highest honors. Most of these honors are a sham, because the only reason they were made was to serve some obscure petty interest. Nonetheless, the honors exist, spiritually and immaterially, but they exist." ---Nathan Coppedge, Aphorisms (unpublished work)

"There are some beliefs that sometimes no one believes." ---Nathan Coppedge, Aphorisms (unpublished work).

"If paradoxes are the greatest problem, then even practicality is visionary." ---Nathan Coppedge, Aphorisms (unpublished work)

"The soul, whatever we know to the contrary, is the ultimate critique of the universal."---Nathan Coppedge, The Dimensional Universalist's Toolkit (unpublished work).

"[P]ain...This principle is represented by Pragmatism." ---Nathan Coppedge, Dimensional Ethics (paper)

"Cleverness is a moral more base than pain. It is a way of escaping morality as it is commonly understood, in favor of the most difficult principles, principles which only come at a price." ---Nathan Coppedge, Dimensional Ethics (paper)

"It may be that the only step available besides soft justice is moral evolution, a process which some say has not yet occurred." ---Nathan Coppedge, Interactions Between Psychology and the Justice System (paper)

Sublimism: Sublimist Art, Architecture, Morality, Poetry

Something of a manifesto, this work is themed on collecting examples of Sublimist art and literature. The author draws entirely from his own work as an artist, poet, and philosopher. More than just several graphical illustrations are present here expressing something like what a genuine Sublimist movement would be----or, nay, IS. Coppedge draws on several examples from Romanticism and the modern poets to support his claim that history has projected all the way into the sublime. He also provides instructions aimed towards training the reader in the art of the sublime. For those interested in Nathan Coppedge's Hyper-Cubism, here is another prospective movement which is not entirely without redeeming virtue.

This book may be found on Amazon HERE.

I've been feeling

miserably sick for a day or two. Recovering enough to probably go to class on Tuesday.

Recent news includes the following:

*26 Mind Seals found for the Dimensional Spell-Casting Toolkit (it may be published early, but given a high volume number). I may eventually publish a separate, cheaper book exclusively of Mind Seals. The concept is based on a writing from a rare / out of print book I bought called The Blue Cliff Record, detailing a 'Buddha Mind Seal' involving certain words with a hidden magical formula.

*Snow in New Haven, but it's finally getting warm again!

*I got a 97 on my last math exam. It's my last required math course for the philosophy major. So, my mood would be improving a lot if I weren't sick. Or, maybe it does anyway.

*I published Sublimism: Sublimist Art, Architecture, Morality, and Poetry. This is to supplement my other art book: Nathan Coppedge's Hyper-Cubism: Post-Cubist Drawings and Paintings. Essentially, not all of my art fits into the Hyper-Cubist category. Some of it is sublime instead. Otherwise, there are some others that are not high quality enough to meet either standard. But most of those are at least a little bit Hyper-Cubist. So, in theory, Sublimism might be a more difficult standard of art.

Irrational Guide to Avoiding Nuclear War

This goes along with my Irrational Guide to Avoiding E. Disease.

1. Obsession is important: complicated thoughts.

2. If you can go to it, you can go past it: prove you're there, and you can prove you're beyond there: one of the tragedies of the 1960's.

3. Government corruption is either-or: it can be good or bad. Controlling corruption should take account of the motivations, unless taking account of motivations is corrupting.

4. Throw a few wrenches in the system and millions will thank you. Government is sometimes its own worst enemy. But this rule only emerges at the point of maddening complexity.

5.  Be simple, and complexity will follow.

Interface Euphoria 10.0

Things to include in virtual reality interfaces:

Innocent Logic: for example, it snows after you eat sugar, certain plants grow if you're greedy.

The ability to 'fillatilate' subtle moods into potions...These potions should contain experiences of information, as well as sensations. But it should be distributed into little pieces, like bubbles suspended in water.

More later, perhaps. Or just a new edition.

Life Status Update...

I'm currently taking a Math for Liberal Arts class at SCSU.

This is the last math class required for my philosophy degree.

Still a little bit nervous about the Biology / Chemistry / Physics requirements.

Last time I took Biology I developed an illness. Requirements should really not be so strict for a philosophy major. I would write more philosophical books if I didn't have a Biology requirement hanging over my head (Biology made its way into the 3rd volume of the Dimensional Encyclopedia, although if I could sustain a more advanced concept at the expense of practicality I might have devoted the third book to exceptions or metem-physics). The current concept is good, however, as it allows a psychological angle, as well as some coverage of harder sciences like Economics and Mathematics.

Still visiting my mother sometimes on the weekends. Money from Social Security for my schizophrenia disability. Living in a nice apartment in New Haven (with subsidy). Have nice potted plants (including one remaining lavender plant) and my own bathroom, washer, and dryer.

Looking forward to future productivity, and eventually finishing my degree. I'm almost halfway done with my college courses now. There's some clear space on the horizon. I'm thinking of avoiding graduate school. Taking this long, its as if undegraduate is enough. I'd probably get fed up if I took it a little further. Then again, professional philosophy requires a PhD, even if I remain unemployable.

Working on phenomenology toolkit currently. Some say its outmoded / outdated, but I think it's a viable category because it deals with a really important issue: life's phenomena. Only with this fresh approach should phenomenology every have been considered, except as an analysis of deep concepts from psychology, formalism, or metaphysics.

So, things are okay. I'm not depressed. But I'm going to a clinic on Orange St. which requires me to attend group therapy, which is really annoying, because nearly everyone else there has a nasty cigarette habit. Very annoying, very maligning of my still orders. If I regain my sanity, I won't have to deal with the garbage-y personalities at the clinic. Maybe motivation is all I need.

Dimensional Mythology, Part 2: Irreconcilables

E.g. unattainable contingencies which have the potential to define everything. However, only when technical proficiency is maximized. At that point no one single tool can define everything---by the time it is scripted it is unscripted.

The irreconcilables are created when they are destroyed.

Semantics overall, is real when it is unreal---a kind of tangential unrealism, a space-filler which takes up no space, which to take multiple forms, must take one form.

However, the intelligibles are neither specifically blind, nor specifically bright----

They are like irrationals. they prefigure forms which look metaphysical, yet without definition.

Unformatted, they cease to be real...

The "Coppedge Curve" --- A Rare Concept of Historical Intelligence

"The only man in the world who may have benefited from brain damage"

I have tried to tell if this term fits my life, after reviewing the story of the abduction by John M. which I recently recovered from my memory.

Better worlds were lost, but if it weren't for the crushing ambition to reverse the handicap, perpetual motion, objective knowledge, a solution to all paradoxes, and genuine Hyper-Cubism might not have been invented.

Maybe, for example, someone in Mensa would be more casual about ideas that Nathan took very seriously. Perhaps this seriousness is what makes or breaks this particular form of intelligence.

Maybe I would be sitting in a cafe in Argentina, writing in one of the world's secondary languages, and simply 'emoting' about Derrida or metaphysics, the kind of writing that is all too common, but probably attributable to emotional genius. I find this idea all-too-humorous.

The contrast is explained by an event Nathan calls "Coppedge's Curve"... a specific point in which, after a friend forced him to take PCP in 3rd or 4th grade, he resolved in the instant to be even more genius than otherwise, as if by a diabolical bargain.

Short Story: Abducted by John M and His Father

New Haven, CT --- 1989

This was when I was fairly young, and I was still confident that my Broca's Area was functioning (The Broca's Area is an area of the brain that is particularly intelligent in bilingual students). On this particular day in school---I think it was 3rd or 4th grade--- I was expropriated from school by John M. and his father. John was in the same grade, and later became known for stylized drawing and over-the-top potty humor. However, at the time John seemed pretty stable. At least in my hazy vision. Perhaps my mother thought we would make intelligent playmates. I may never know. the visit came as something of a surprise. But I found myself to be a little glad, because I found life at home stifling and boring---my mother had been a history major, and my father, who no longer lived with her, was interested in political statistics.

I can imagine we visited my future high school (the trip was meant as an intellectual jaunt, although it struck me as sneaky and illegal). We decided to to take a walk on Foster St. afterwards, which I thought was the street next to the school, but it turned out was where the M's lived, some blocks away. I kept mentioning something about a 'method' which made me feel intellectual. But John M. and his dad thought the method was about drinking alcohol, or as I later learned, doing drugs. They kept making jokes, which really bothered me. How could they take this illegal activity so lightly? But surely they had a moral to prove I thought. This thinking turned out to be disastrous.

As the dad was pouring grape juice for the both of us at the base of the stairs, a different character (perhaps his brother?) came down the stairs. He was holding a plastic bag, but I didn't think very much of that at first. They covered my eyes, so I couldn't tell what they were doing. Then one of them said 'huff it!' in a condescending tone. I tried not to breathe, but someone punched the sides of the bag together, and I got a big whiff of something. I felt slightly weird, and I could feel my brain cells disappearing quickly. I made up my mind in that moment that if I lived to tell the tale, I would become a highly intelligent person, just out of spite.

Then, if I remember, I woke up on the couch. Because I was still worried about whether he had poisoned the grape juice, I assumed that I had been drugged, and declared the urgency to get home. However, these characters seemed to think that nothing had gone wrong. They explained that I had just taken a bit of a long nap. And, at that age, I couldn't really think of anything to raise as a complaint. However, I was upset and worried. I couldn't actually tell if I was drunk or not.

When I got home, my mother was angry that it was so late (maybe it had even been an unplanned sleepover?) She also didn't want to hear anything about poisoned grape juice. The father had explained that there was 'little bit of an accident but everything was okay' and insisted that I agree with him, which I did, thinking that he had not known the drug would kill my brain cells. It was only later that I thought out that they clearly thought I had no brain cells to begin with, which was in a sense, the most tragic kind of joke.

Flux Aeterna

Via Gerald O'Connell: example of excellent manifesto writing...However I am perplexed that most of these types of movements have a slightly negative vibe (the concept of 'flux', nihilism, or opposition, for instance). Perhaps it simply amounts to individual differences which are observable from the outside, or perhaps my own work has secrets which are not contained by aesthetic or the primary intellectual theories... This, however, is a writing from Gerald O'Connell, which could inspire dimensionism:


"...There are certain mathematical patterns that are of great fundamental simplicity - basic expressions of quantity and extension. They can seem to act together as a kind of motor for being, always in flux, shifting, ticking away beneath the veil of the physical. They are independent of categories like mass or time. Any graphical representation of them must be totally ambiguous as to scale, appearing at once as both cosmic and microscopic. In such maps there can be no
objects or things, only the shadows of action or the trajectories of potential."

See more of his project, which includes some metaphysical style artwork, at:

I am also re-posting this at the Dimensionist group, since it is very similar thinking, perhaps even an unconscious inspiration for elements of my philosophical work.

A Note to My Academic Readers...

I have changed the misleading title of one of my papers.

It is now called 'The Dithered Theories of Dimensionism'.

'Grey Theories' no more!

Here is that paper, for those people who were led astray:

Dimensional World Module 1

1. Complexity is texture.

2. Texture is a kind of information in the dimensional world. See Systemo.

3. Perfection is substance.

4. Entities can levitate through isometry.

5. Subjectivity is the coincidence of perspective, granted appropriateness.

6. Entities exchange abstract properties through hyperbolics.

7. The correspondence of internalized descriptions determines aesthetic meaning.

8. Perfection is a rule of complexity, and vice versa.

9. Quests include whether perfection is subjective, and whether complexity is individual (creating leisure and purpose).

10. Meaning and enjoyment are natural---both urban and cultivated.

11. If there is a shortcoming, it is the shortcoming of virtual worlds: a way in which the original, inherent needs of occupants were ignored or overlooked.

12. Consequently, pleasure should be guaranteed, unless pleasure can be explained and justified by visual content.

13. Economics is not competitive, but meaningful and explosive like the big bang.

14. Everything is meaningful, unless it results in questions to the interface.

15. Knowledge in this world is exponential, and its only degeneration is the finitude of the coinci-stantial.

16. In essence, a meaningful world, with real values (objects, hence aesthetic rules of physics).

17. Ethics is far more material, and meaning far more evidential, in this world.

How to Count Using Perpetual Motion...

General logic of this set of diagrams is as follows:

(1) If energy is maintained, more and more energy need not be generated. Just a minimum, constant effect. Or, an efficient principle can be used which spends energy at one point and generates it at another. In ideal cases, unity or greater may be reached, hence unity is really a standard, not an ideal.

(2) Toggling means that not all parts need to move at the same time. Some elements contribute to momentum regardless of whether they move.

(3) I have proven that a fixed ramp can create motion under equilibrium. Thus, generating energy should not be a problem in some cases.

(4) Paradox: meaning simply that if something moves upwards and downwards, it breaks the convention that objects must fall down if they fly up. This is like the visual paradox of the infinite staircase, by M.C. Escher. However, in the first case shown, upwards motion may not be necessary, because it is not the principle being used.

"Micro socialism is like totalitarianism without violence". ---Nathan Coppedge, Febr. 2015

Blog in which I voiced my opinion about categorical deduction

More detail than sometimes...

Forgot to cite myself, though.

First Sign that I Live in a Different Reality

The tent I burnt up when staying at my mother's friend's yurt is miraculously in fine condition.

Apparently I time traveled or something...

My sister Jessica is staying in it on her travels across the country.


Me: "Remember, I burnt the tent when I stayed at Lauri's"

My Mother: "Who is Lauri?"

Me: "Lauri Martin!"

My Mother: "Oh"

Me: "Lauri Martin's yurt"

My Mother: "We never burnt anything at Lauri Martin's yurt"

Me: "Then I must come from a different reality"

My Mother: "Yeah, that's possible. You come from another reality"

This kind of shift is what I call an 'altimatum': a point where things cohere to decohere. A period of profound knowledge narrows reality until it comes to a synergism, and then becomes deflationary. (Cool!).

Unsung Political Slogans

"Nucelear warfare can make governments look like a sham".

"The world is too poor for nuclear war... (possible)..."

"Policy wonks are really high-level imitators".

"The prodigy of history is its genius, not its culture or its military"

"The freedom of the present is the freedom of the future"

The Authentic Method of 64-Category Deduction

The method has been earlier elaborated in THIS VIDEO.

But there is one thing I failed to clarify: what are the other potential four categories? After I made the video, I realized that those categories might be equally important from most points of view. Although the four original categories are important, they are not the whole picture.

So, here are the official eight categories for the 64-square diagram, with the final four categories restored:


(1) 1A2A 3B4B
(2) 1A2B 3B4A
(3) 1B2A 3A4B
(4) 1B2B 3A4A
(5) 3A4A 1B2B
(6) 3A4B 1B2A
(7) 3B4A 1A2B
(8) 3B4B 1A2A

The four parts of each subset of the deduction refer to specific combinations of coordinates. Notice that every number has different coordinates, and each number is used just once for a given subset of the deduction. The letters are used once as well, but must remain opposite in opposite positions, as recorded above. Note that the major numbers (1,2,3,4 going with As and Bs) cycle counterclockwise, thus appearing in the modular order 1,2,4,3. This could easily be re-written for modular format by putting 4A and 4B over the 3A and 3B positions, and 3A and 3B over the 4A and 4B positions. The category numbers (1-64) however, have been recorded in modular order for the sake of objectivity. The entire set must be re-written, for which there are simpler notations, if subset numbers take cyclical order instead of modular. Modular order in my diagrams is written from upper right linearly to lower left. However, as long as it is noticed that the spatial location changes, the same system can be used for different linear-scripted writings, although it may modify the order of the major quadrants.However, the quadrants will remain counterclockwise from the starting position. For most purposes, it may be most convenient simply to imitate my methods as best you can, or to work with simpler diagrams, including the standard quadra, in which the formula is much simpler: AB:CD and AD:CB, in which neighboring letters are joined by choosing the quality of one and the noun ('property') of the other.


These follow the sentence order of the individual categories, which involves maintaining opposites in opposite positions, and standardizing the order of the contingent categories so as to correspond with their coherent positions within the data:


1,2,10,9 | 3,4,12,11 | 28,27,19,20 | 26,25,17,18


1,2,10,9 | 3,11,12,4 | 28,27,19,20 | 26,18,17,25


5,6,14,13 | 7,8,16,15 | 32,31,23,24 | 30,29,21,22


5,6,14,13 | 7,15,16,8 | 32,31,23,24 | 30,22,21,29


64,63,55,56 | 62,61,53,54 | 37,38,46,45 | 39,40,48,47


64,63,55,56 | 62,54,53,61 | 37,38,46,45 | 39,47,48,40


60,59,51,52 | 58,57,49,50 | 33,34,42,41 | 35,36,44,43


60,59,51,52 | 58,50,49,57 | 33,34,42,41 | 35,43,44,36

ABOVE: A 64-Category Diagram Following Modular Order. Notice that in modular order every position in quadrant A (upper right) is opposite to every category in quadrant C (lower left). Also, every category in quadrant B (upper left) is opposite of every category in quadrant D (lower right). This is not true with every set ordering, but only with cases where the order proceeds across the entire (square) diagram from the first position, and ending in the last. Two other potential orderings include numbering individual sub-cycles in cyclical order, or proceeding linearly, but adapted to the cycle of the diagram. Thus, 1,2,10,9 would instead appear 1,2,3,4, or in the next case 27,28,36,35 would instead appear 6,2,1,5, since the enumeration would begin in the center near the mote, and proceed contingently to the motion of the cycle. But those are alternate methods. Modular order is in some ways preferable, although in some cases it is simpler to explain in terms of sub-cycles.
