Classic Text of Perpetual Motion

These quotes are taken from Bryn Mawr Critical Review 2018/01/18, that text itself probably plagiarized or somehow serving as the original text for the First Year Seminar at Bard College in August 2001, for which I paid dearly, and which proved to be the most valuable part of my education by far.

Anyway, the point is these pieces of the text are the founding documents of sincere faith in perpetual motion...

The publication by Cynthia Damon (e.g. meaningful-to-god) 1of a new critical edition... of Caesar’s... (BC),
(Harmless enough)

Wolfgang Hering... and Virginia Brown (critical notes of the possibility of genius and a 'new spring' of ideas)----made pertinent suggestions to clarify the manuscript tradition of the BC,
there was yet no new edition that was based on an exhaustive critical study of the work
(No new Physics had been presented)

Damon’s edition and study... a new collation of the manuscripts that Damon considers most relevant for the establishment of the text; 2) an analysis of their filiation and her proposal of a stemma codicum; 3) theconstitutio textus, accompanied by the corresponding critical tools (an apparatus errati, an Appendix critica, and an Appendix orthographica);

and 4) a commentary on the passages Damon regards as the most problematic, which enhances our understanding of the text and of Damon’s editorial decisions.

In all these matters Damon does a rigorous job, not easy in view of the challenges facing a new edition of the BC,

As for the relationship among the principal mss. (St. 16-54), Damon undertakes a detailed stemmatic analysis in which she studies the possible relevant innovations and the correctable errors...

1. Damon recovers a large number of readings of the archetype compared to her three reference editions (edd.), which prefer to accept innovations of the recentiores or corrections from editions or critics.16

New! Device demonstrates upward torque with full recovery!

Free energy device (proof of concept)  from yesterday morning.

When the support is turned inwards and tilted backwards, natural torque is produced, an unexpected unusual phenomenon.

These contraptions will be sold on Etay in the next several months, wuthout the cardboard.

Another Working Perpetual Motion Concept!

Rather ingenious. The swivel device finally perfected.

A counterweight acts on a slightly upward-and-downward left-right swiveling lever (mostly left and right 30+ degrees, or whatever preferred range).

Usual deal with support vs non-support. The returning motion is the rising motion, so the falling and rising motion is used to deflect the marble inward and outward onto two different track segments, as shown in a similar device the Not-If-But-When 4, a pretty much proven principle through two lengths of the cycle.

I know this device has two-directional motion by a proven principle from the Not-If-But-When 4.

Likely ratios are 1.5X effective ideal mass for the counterweight, right in the middle of the > 1X mass and < 2X mass necessary with 1 X marble abd 2 X long-end leverage (long-end leverage expressed as a ratio of short-end leverage measured to the midpoint of the counterweight).

Assuming deflection is designed properly, this is one of the easiest perpetual motion machines ever to build that I know of.

Consult diagram above if additional information needed.

Quotable Quotes May 2018

"Actually, like philosophy, science is an ‘approach’ and thus lies in a domain that is independent of content: a void which ideas must fill, or else, after Ages, all that is left are empty concepts. It is the USE of an approach, rather than its name given to tools, which belie the intelligence of an age." ---Nathan Coppedge

"So here we are, time for Santa Claus. Learn to adapt." ---Nathan Coppedge

"Immortality exists now by necessity only, but in the future it will begin to exist by explanation, and even dimension. Sometimes it will even be a convenient excuse." ---Nathan Coppedge

"God is work. Summed in Peril." ---Nathan Coppedge

"I aim to raise the bar on conservative methods and be useful in practical contexts--that's always the most radical thing other than perspective." ---Nathan Coppedge

"Sometimes my theory is that physical manifestations are a ‘symptom’ that only emerges with an infinite foundation. In this way, degrees of manifestation are directly symptomatic of the infinite, or some other necessity." ---Nathan Coppedge

"The madness of everything is still everything." ---Nathan Coppedge

“Irrationality is so much of the rational is the kind of thought people wait and pine for. But why wait? Patience is just the value of something valuable.” —Nathan Coppedge, Wisdom of the New Ancients in the 3rd Dimension

"The difference between the 3-d and 4-d is the difference between non-living and living immortality." ---Nathan Coppedge
