The Position of the Perpetual Motionist
Have you ever wondered what really perpetual motionists are, why are they here, and where are they ultimately going? Have you ever wonder why the perpetual motion is the way it is? Of perpetual motion these are, especially, relevant and meaningful questions, because world want to know if a perfectly good perpetual motionist actually exists and, if so, why he would hide himself and allow the citizens of earth to starvation by energy crisis. There is much speculation and misunderstanding about the perpetual motionist, his methods, philosophy and even upon his perennial existence. They are many types like the fragrant flowers in the garden. Who are they? What are their lives like? How do they relate to others? What about and where is theirs much promised majestic arts? His very much guarded secrecy is enigma to physicists; it keeps many in confusion, hinders growth and professional development of other perpetual motionists and also the welfare of mankind. These are the questions that must be answered.
“Scientist has lot of misunderstanding about perpetual motionist and his methods but we know that perpetual motionist is really a special person. Later or sooner, the world has to recognize that he is not only a real dreamer but also real doer and the savior of the world. He has ideas and his ideas are important. Perpetual motionist takes a rough and tough path for the realization of reality so that societies as a whole could benefit from the practical application of his good ideas.” Says Ramananda, he is a great admirer of perpetual motionist.
To begin, we have to ask first what a perpetual motionist is, and later look into his methods. You may have a variety of answers. The answer depends whom you ask and on his experience about perpetual motion and his interaction with the extraordinary men. In this section, however, I am less concerned with how others define and describe a perpetual motionist rather how perpetual motionist describe themselves, and their methods. In this section solely devoted to perpetual motionist, I should inform the reader that my main concern is to present something about the definition and character of perpetual motionist, their methods, psychology and philosophy as described by them or reflected in their works.
How do we know about the perpetual motionist and their dreams? We have some descriptions of them in our literature. We have records of their inventive feats. We have some opinions of their contemporaries. And when we take the core concepts of perpetual motion for realization of which they struggled all through their lives, and we go deeper to see their motives, aims and methods, we can always learn far more than what appears on the written pages by historians, more than what physicists have erroneously learnt about him and more than what projected by media about him so far. Our study of the great perpetual motionists such as Peregrinus, Edward Somerset, Orffyreus in the past and Deva Ramananda in present times provide us with the groundwork from which we can build up a right understanding of them. Thinking about their teachings, admiring their wonderful feats, applying some common sense, and looking deep within, we can come up with a reasonable understanding of the nature of the perpetual motionist and their mission.
Let us look into the history in brief how a perpetual motionist came into existence, especially in Europe and how he became arch enemy of established laws of science there. In Vedic times religion and science were not separate and Vedic religion that encompassed philosophy and science that dealt with medicine, cosmology, astronomy etc. based on principle of perpetual motion have maintained their character till date. Unlike Vedic science, the nature and scope of the western science has varied in different era that can be represented by following equations.
In Medieval Times
Science = Natural Philosophy = Religion + Traditional Knowledge (Like Alchemy and Perpetual Motion etc)
Around scientific revolution
Science = Natural Philosophy – Religion - Perpetual Motion - Alchemy
After advent of modern physics, theory of relativity and quantum mechanics and their philosophical implications
Science = Religion – Perpetual Motion
After rediscovery of perpetual motion and its implications, Grand unification of religion and science and technology (perpetual motion) is likely to take place. As the evangelist Matthew tells us: “what therefore God has joined together, let no man put asunder.” (19:6), Therefore,
Science = Religion = Technology (Perpetual Motion) = 0 (Brahma or zero energy)= Vedanta
About 10000 years ago, sage Dirghatamas discovered that universe is a huge perpetual motion wheel. He observed that wheel continues to maintain its motion forever in spite of the fact that it performs work by carrying the burden (weight and friction) of the worlds. By stating the fact that wheel of the axle does not wear up and heat up he rejected all those fundamental principles of energy, relationship between heat and work on which thermodynamics thrives today. I have already discussed how Indian astronomers rediscovered perpetual motion around 6th century and proposed design of a perpetual motion wheel driven by the quicksilver. Around 12th Bhaskaracharya maintained the same tradition and described a similar wheel in his book Siddhata Shriromani. Around the same time, idea of perpetual motion went to Europe and win hearts of traditional craftsmen, mason, artisans, technicians, clock makers, virtuoso, and practitioner of natural magick there. In these medieval times, Perpetual motion flourished well under the atmosphere of freedom there as evidenced by a large number of automata and number of attempts to invent perpetual motion machine of all kinds. Later, from perpetual motion point of view, it was unfortunate that with the beginning of the Age of Enlightenment in Europe, natural philosophy marked a clear and perhaps definitive distance with traditional knowledge. Traditional knowledge without pretense of theory relied on practical results without concern about scientific approach and rational thinking as their fundamentals. “Traditional knowledge” contained all basic sciences, arts, medicine and metaphysics. Kings who indulged in aristocracy of all kinds took pride in displaying magnificent automata at the courts and Royal palaces for that they also patronized outstanding perpetual motionists. Feats of perpetual motion and magnificent sites of automata kept intelligence of wannabe intellectuals and scholars puzzling as they kept guessing about secrets of automata and perpetual motion. Suddenly, the interest and the passion of both the gentry and the aristocratic class arose for scientific discovery, antique philosophy and (at that time) progressive politics. In place of alchemy, chemistry was being established. In place of perpetual motion, mechanics was being established with such a rigor and political motives that contributions of traditional men as original discoverers were almost forgotten, and it was alleged that traditional men had no scientific approach. In this diplomatic manner, the Age of Enlightenment, thus, brought Europe in the modern times, so called by historians. However, at the same time, perpetual motionists, many among them the brilliant performers of natural magick, virtuoso and occultists were not pleased to see corruption of ‘traditional knowledge’ in name of new philosophy that was actually diplomacy to eliminate the traditional knowledge. The leading figures like Condorcet started protest, which gradually took shape of a counter movement against wannabee intellectuals and their selfish motives to hijack traditional knowledge. Roman Catholic Church also joined the movement that already included occultists, virtuoso, men of natural magick, con men of many kinds and conservative thinkers who wanted to preserve the “old” state of things. Around Renaissance, science and religion remained in conflict in Europe. Scientist found fallacies in religious doctrines based on blind faith, on the other hand, priests were not prepared to accommodate new knowledge claimed to be based on rational observation and experiments with nature by scientist that confronted with doctrines of religion. At this point, I would like to say that, owing to the limitations of religion and science and conflict between them, there arose a third group comprising of self-styled, energetic and ambitious people, this group was dissatisfied with teachings of both of them. This group of people also wanted an answer to the fundamental questions of life and the Universe, an absolute answer in the form of a working reality by creating devices by imitating diverse mechanism of nature to accomplish a particular task. This group of people was best represented by ancient alchemist, practitioners of Natural Magick, perpetual motionist and virtuoso. Unfortunately, their movement could not succeed for many reasons as a result of which the so called Age of Enlightenment had its complete sweep in various department of knowledge, subsequently; science and scientific reasoning separated itself from magic and traditional knowledge. A good illustration of this is that chemistry completely divorced from alchemy, perpetual motion from mechanics and these fields were gradually began to be debunked and finally rejected from the studies of science around the 18th century with the establishment of thermodynamics.
During Renaissance in Italy, the houses of the virtuosi began to abound in all kinds of curious mechanical surprises, and, as they were termed, magical effects. Inventive ingenuity did not confine itself to the creation of useful contrivances; it added amusing ones as exemplified by numerous automata. The scientist was being educated, one way or another he was picking up fragments from the store of knowledge that craftsman, virtuso, alchemists and perpetual motionists accumulated by practice of their arts over the past centuries. One of the most enduring legacies of the craftsmen of Middle Ages was the development and intensification of powered machinery in society. While most of the mechanical elements known to the Middle Ages were known to the craftsmen and perpetual motion inventors, scholastic innovators vaunted and took great pride in elaborating theory about those mechanical components. Historians of technology have yet to realize that perpetual motion inventors occupy a prominent place in medieval and renaissance technology. The end of the renaissance and the baroque period were the heyday of perpetual motion proposals. By the 15th century, especially, perpetual motion inventors began inventing new and fabulous machines - Leonardo's machines including drawings of perpetual motion machines, Ramelli’s machines, Bockler’s perpetual motion machine are well-known example. Works of these inventors provide an excellent foundation for depicting for students the beginnings of modern engineering. Though records on the perpetual motion are not easily available, whatever scanty information we have about them show that most of the inventors were clearly interested in perpetual motion as a means to power machinery. According to Deva Ramananda, it is largely the “how-to” books written by medieval alchemists, magicians, artisans and perpetual motionists into which modern science and technology has its roots. There was good demand by scientists still for works of alchemists, virtuoso and natural magick well into the period when science was established and also later. In closely examining this rich but convoluted source of literature, Deva Ramananda reveals role of printing technology in proliferating works of alchemists and perpetual motionists all over Europe, in absence of that progress of science would have been slow. In all times, whether historian of science recognize or not, every scientist has felt on their works some crucial, if not stronger, an impact of works of alchemists and perpetual motionist forever.
Knowing more about Perpetual Motionist:
Just what, in the first place, is a perpetual motionist? Is he really a 9/11 terrorist of science? What are his religion, philosophy and psychology? What are the characteristics of the perpetual motionist? There are no quick answers to these questions. The most obvious answer would be the following: A perpetual motionist is a person professing his faith in a machine that moves forever without any inputs of energy capable of performing works. He is a philanthropist as he wants to emancipate society from the grip of energy crisis. He is violator of laws of thermodynamics. But things just do not stop here as he wants to transform the world by his amazing inventions and want others to follow his methods.
I will start very naively with few statements that can be considered as definition of what a perpetual motionist is?
“He is a person who will construct a machine which will move by itself without expenditure of any force. He is a person who will judge a force purely by its perpetual motion merits.”
In a broad sense, a perpetual motionist is one, who believes not only in possibility of perpetual motion machine but also keen himself at applying his intelligence and skills to design such a device. He is the man who devotes his time to perpetual motion. He regards his invention as divine and considers physicist a rascal who ridicules his invention and mission.
A perpetual motionist may exit in all forms and intensity, from mild to strong and hard; from honest to quake, and average to genius etc.
A perpetual motionist therefore can be a person:
- One who talks about perpetual motion and one who believes in its possibility.
- One who tries out mental schemes but seldom resort to actual doing.
- One who has actual plans and gives enough time to perpetual motion.
- One who is successful in obtaining perpetual motion?
- One who has failed in obtaining perpetual motion.
- One who is skeptic about law of conservation of energy, resents law of conservation of energy and is not influenced by the authority.
Though such form of categorization is not perfect, by these definitions, I may have considerably increased the number of those whom you yet not think to be a perpetual motionist. In fact, we can have thousands of perpetual motionists belonging to each category. Just check out to which category do you belong. You are welcome if you want to create some other category that I have missed here.
In additions to above, some other definitions, more or less similar, that I’ve encountered in Deva Ramananda’s work are as follows:
“He is a specialist in perpetual motion”
“Perpetual motionist in the strictest sense of the word, means a person who is engaged in construction of a machine that would work more than the equivalent amount of energy supplied to it.”
“Perpetual motionist is the man who discovers and makes use of some of the vast stores of forces and manipulates them according to his will in such a fashion that no energy/force is consumed and all type of works get done, more energy is created out of nothing.”
“Perpetual motionist is basically a first law violator. He welcomes anything which contradicts first law of thermodynamics.”
“A perpetual motionist is truly a Brahmavadin.”
What is perpetual motionist? In my EEC series of books on perpetual motion, I have tried to answer this question the only way it can be answered, sometimes in a very roundabout way and in a different volume in a very specific way. Make no mistake for defining is confining, we need to rise beyond the realm of our definitions and better consider the facts about him. Perpetual motionist is generally a statusless person in the eyes of mainstream science and often stands isolated; however he offers a small message of hope. There are always people who dare to seek on the margin of society because of their iconoclastic approach, who are neither dependent on any kind of social recognition for their philosophy and works, nor dependent on social routine, and prefer a utmost freedom under a state of risk for upholding the fringe ideas ahead of time that in course of time come to take shape and create revolution. Perpetual motionist people rely on their inner call; remain faithful to god, to their own message from God as they believe that direct communication with God on the deepest level is possible. This is why Deva Ramananda considered himself both - a perpetual motionist drawn to free energy, mysteries and occult sciences; and also a spiritual aspirant seeking mystical union with the divine. In addition, the scientific method with its precision appealed to him, and we see him how he attempted to reconcile perpetual motion, science and spirituality.
Perpetual motionist is a keen observer of nature. He possesses sensitivity far greater than scientist. If it were possible to represent ‘sensitivity’ on the scale of the voltage, I would say that a perpetual motionist is a Megavolt scientist, and on the other hand, a scientist is only in the range of a millivolts and kilovolt perpetual motionist. It is only a matter of degree of sensitivity and energy level between them; nevertheless, fundamental dispositions are same for perpetual motionist and scientist except one difference!
Let me reveal the difference between two. In any natural process or in a particular experiment, when any peculiarity of motion of objects, or any peculiarity of natural force or any peculiar property of solid, liquid, gas or plasma appear to them to contradict law of conservation of energy. the scientist at once feels discomfort, get paralyzed, try to recover and check the energy ledger and soon indulge to manipulate energy balance to save the sacrosanct law of conservation of energy, on the other hand, the perpetual motionist gets delighted and attempts further to verify his hunch or observation by incorporating and exploiting the observed peculiar property into the design of his perpetual motion machine. Perpetual motionist gets intrigued and finds joy in reading Steady State theory of Hermann Bondi, Continuous Creation Theory of Hoyle, Maxwell’s Demon, the active principle of Newton, theory of inflationary Universe by Allan Guth and Paul J. Stenhard- all of which are in flagrant contradiction with law of conservation of energy. More ever, when he gets enlightened by reading philosophies like Vedanta and Taoism, he finds himself in a state of ecstasy as they also contain the same philosophy that perpetual motionist has adopted to construct his worldview and to carry on his mission. Since by perpetual motion a perpetual motionist really creates energy out of nothing, his crucial experiment also strengthens the assertion that world has sprung from nothing which is parallel to the many cosmological theories and eastern mysticism. The “Great Void” or “Brahma” containing all potentialities is an inexhaustible source which is immeasurable, omnipotent, omnipresent and absolute. Nothing increases it and nothing diminishes it as this infinite source, in its unmanifestated state, is apparently “no-thing” and that all creation which has sprung from it is also virtually nothing, hence an illusion or Maya as Vedanta calls it. In this sense Perpetual motionist is naturally a Brahmavadin or a Taoist who believes that “Brahma” or “Tao” is the ultimate source of all creation. It is inexhaustible. His mind titillates when he chants the following mantra.
Om purnamadh purnamidam purnat purnamudachyate
Purnasya purnamaday purnamevavshishyate
It appears that Deva Ramananda has grappled long with problem of defining the term perpetual motion and perpetual motionist. The best way to know what is a perpetual motionist is to see his roots and learn his inherited pattern of thoughts or actions. Perpetual motionists are not misled by everyday experience and it is not difficult for them to conceive that something can be produced from nothing. Deva Ramananda claims that the freedom to search for truth is a myth of science whose dogmatic formulations like law of conservation of energy, he says, serve to restrict rather than promote the freethinking which is essential to the imagination and conception of reality of perpetual motion. To be fair to perpetual motionist, he sincerely holds that law of conservation of energy is an obstacle standing in the way of perpetual motion and its practicing man, the perpetual motionist. Physics is comics without perpetual motion. Subjective and specific dogmatic formulations as enshrined in the laws of thermodynamics are anathema to the spirit of perpetual motionists and scientific discovery of perpetual motion. Invention of perpetual motion is essential for the perfection of structure of physics, understanding of the universe and perfection of the human race through the development of perpetual motion or free energy technology. Perpetual motion has all serendipity unlike theory of relativity which is nothing more than a scientific fiction. Physicist is under illusion that there is problem of friction in perpetual motion. He doesn’t know that perpetual motionist has special understanding of the universe. Perpetual motionist is sure that the whole of creation is so much vast, and it is with such a wonderful order, regularity and precision that we need not have any concept of it other than a huge perpetual motion machine, the imitation and building of which is far better than mere theorizing about the Universe and pretend that we know whole of it as physicist often claims. Perpetual motionist’s main gripes against physicists, as far as I can detect, are that physicist hates perpetual motion and considers perpetual motion as will o wisp, on the other hand, perpetual motionist believes that perpetual motion once invented in our time would be able to fill in all explanatory gaps concerning our knowledge of the world and improve enormously the human condition. A perpetual motionist believes that matter, energy and life didn’t come from Big Bang or relativity or as erroneously explained by other bogus theories and putative laws of science. They came from harmony and synergy of natural forces by perpetual motion. So our prime job must be to find out the perpetual motion and this is being done sincerely in all ages by us. Our thoughts, motives and actions are bound to be governed by single perpetual motion because the universe is actually governed by a single principle of perpetual motion. We have learnt that self regulated, self propelled, self sustained nature is one whole, with myriads of perpetual motion patterns of its own, to be marveled for in terms of a unitary principle of perpetual motion: hence, we find that there is an order in nature, which the mind can comprehend, and finally, by ingenuity and dexterity, perpetual motionist can imitate them to produce a right perpetual motion machine. Perpetual motion which harmonizes with Vedanta is one of the best religions. Every time you understand something about perpetual motion, you move towards god, omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent who has created the universe ex nihilo just by employing HIS majestic art of perpetual motion. If one allows for an evolutionary source of perpetual motion in Vedic religion, then Deva Ramananda’s position on the role of perpetual motion in human thinking is remarkable.
Unfortunately, physicists have illusion that nothing can be more important than their laws of science in grand scheme of Universe and they, armed with laws and lies, often behave like sole master of the universe. Physicist is like a poor bird called as ‘Papiha’ in Hindi who misconstrues that she must support the heaven to prevent it falling on the ground during night when every one is fast asleep, so she prefers to sleep on her back, she take every care by extending her legs in direction of heaven to support it, hence, prevent it crashing onto the ground. It is illusion to think you can push the river for all things in divine setting.
Just What Is A Physicist?
Were a student to ask me for a definition of physicist, I should be willing to answer him: “a physicist is the scientific man who ridicules perpetual motion, he is haunted by incredible delusion that energy cannot be created from nothing, therefore, physicist is obsessed with impossibility of perpetual motion. Indeed, the dominant ideology of the physicist of the West, of material science has for several centuries stifled any serious or wide spread interest in truth of perpetual motion, i.e., “creation of energy out of nothing”. But throughout Indian culture, since Vedic times, there have been thinkers, scientists and astronomers who understood and affirmed truth of perpetual motion. Since, perpetual motion is heritage of India; I have great respect for perpetual motion. The subject has always fascinated me, beyond almost all others.
We already have learned that understanding perpetual motion requires a modification of ordinary conceptions like the idea that something cannot be created out of nothing. Physicists have failed to conceive that something can be created from nothing. Here by the term “nothing’, I simply mean some non -material source which is beyond our sense of perception. Perpetual motion is art of creating something from ‘nothing’. In my writings I have always emphasized the fact that perpetual motion may require a more complete alteration of his thought processes than physicist ever conceived or, in fact, than they ever could conceive. Once secret art of perpetual motion is known, one can easily realize how the origins of perpetual motion phenomena may be directly connected so intimately to the ultimate source of energy that things once dismissed as 'occult' could become topics of serious consideration among physicists In short, physicist is in the need to cast off ordinary thought processes and ultimately to go beyond thought" altogether, and in the perception of reality as one unity, the phenomenon of enlightenment and the science of perpetual motion have much in common.
It may not be a surprise that in textbooks a couple of years from now, Deva Ramananda believes, there will be paragraphs like this: “For centuries, perpetual motion inventors have been so desperate to try to understand mystery of forces, how to harmoniously put their properties all together, to invent a machine that would move forever without expenditure of force, capable of doing all sorts of work. Eminent perpetual motion inventors like Edward Somerset, II marquis of Worcester and Councillor Orffyreus invented and demonstrated their gravity wheels to the best satisfaction of learned man who witnessed the demonstrations. What were other scientists doing, then? They were still skeptical about the truth of perpetual motion and doing nothing except rejecting possibility of a perpetual motion and looking for putative conservation of ‘calorie’, ‘vis inertiae’, ‘vis viva’ or ‘impetus’ and later, their followers were vying with each other over the priority of claims who first found these concepts that led to establishment of law of conservation of energy. Instead of investigating perpetual motion, they were more interested in impossibility of perpetual motion machine to see the names of their heroes in the list of founders of principles of conservation of energy. It is unfortunate that almost none of the scientist attended to the problem of perpetual motion seriously like Orffyreus. They wasted their time and effort only in trying the schemes to reject and ridicule perpetual motion because they lacked the zeal of a perpetual motionist to seek the impossible in a diligent manner. Scientists were so prejudiced or provincial that in spite of much evidence of perpetual motion in nature displayed by solar system or entire Universe as well as found in the history of attempts to construct perpetual motion machines, they refused to accept the truths and ridiculed efforts of perpetual motion inventor who were far ahead in conception of true laws of nature as compared to scientists.”
Couple of years from now, the next generation will ask of us some of above questions and many more. As they review our thoughts, actions, and our inactions they will- either ask: What were perpetual motionists thinking about nature of gravity, putative laws of science and theory that debunks perpetual motion? Or surely they will ask why physicists were deaf, dumb and- blind to the perpetual motions that were being constructed by talented and skilled man and why they were so insensitive to the truth of what was unfolding? I want physicists to look back at the struggles of perpetual motionists before and after the law of conservation of energy was established. The basic thing is the idea behind the venture if not the success involved it. Perpetual motionist is not naïve as they have ridiculed as in the beginning mistakes are common while creating a design of perpetual motion. Initially, they are not much painful when they happen. But years later some mistakes that delay a right design may be painful, however, these mistakes and pain provide an “experience" which eventually leads us to success...! Next generation will ask a question that I prefer to ask and I truly believe they will ask. How did- perpetual motionists find the moral courage to rise and face the hoary headed problem so many physicists said- was impossible to solve that was a mystery? How did they find the ability to raise- their level of consciousness about the truth that was long long awaited by our world? How did they find the courage to act and construct a perpetual motion machine amidst adverse environment?
Next generation will finally understand:
What a genius is a perpetual motionist! How noble in reason and inspiration, how infinite in faculties, how express and admirable in action, the beauty of the world of technology, and the paragon of skilled man!”
Perpetual Motion is the Field Where Oppression Is A Stimulus
We are grieved to see how utterly derisive physicists have been in their low estimation of perpetual motion in relation to fundamental laws of nature. Perhaps even more than on its own tradition, the perpetual motionist has thrived on oppression and on the antagonism he has forever met in the world of science, but his perennial existence in all times proves the fact that he is immune to oppression and persecution and they cannot wipe out him. No individual on earth has survived such struggles and sufferings as the perpetual motionist has gone through perpetual motion. Here undoubtedly lays one of the main reasons for his continued existence through so many hundreds of years. Perpetual presence of perpetual motionist is an anathema to physicist. It is something divine and indefinable.
Ever since the establishment of law of conservation of energy perpetual motionist experienced a period of greater oppression than before. With changed times and new challenges, the old perpetual motionist has transformed into a new form called free energy enthusiast. Suppression of free energy still continues. Yet we shall survive this period too, no matter how much pain, sorrow, no matter how heavy a loss in life it may cause. A community like ours, which is a community purely by high ideals and based on tradition of truth, can only be strengthened by mutual cooperation and synergy among us.
"Why do They Ridicule Perpetual Motion and Hate the Perpetual Motionists?”
This phenomenon called ‘anti-perpetual motion’ in science is due to several causes. Partly it originates in the fact that physicists are under wrong impression that perpetual motionist is basically a misguided inventor without any knowledge of scientific principles. This also arises from their failure to understand that a perpetual motionist not only has knowledge of principles of nature but also possesses ingenuity to translate them into inventions. In past 500 years, since we still have the same philosophy of energy/force, ether etc, and share, more or less, same methods of energy generation, it has brought forth a fine and presentable generation of perpetual motionists and free energy enthusiasts, endowed with ingenuity, extremely sensitive feeling for honor and the like. While, in my opinion, the intellectual position of the perpetual motionist is very much underrated, the influence of physicists on the press, in literature, in science and society is very marked and overstated, as must be apparent to even the most superficial observer. There is no greater crime in the world other than to suppress the talent of a truthful individual like a perpetual motionist. No one shall be able to understand or even remotely fathom, the hours and days and months and years of the anguish of petulant blame, ridicule and exploitation that perpetual motionist has had to go through. It will never interest physicist, but I hope next generation will think about it.
The feeling of communion against oppression of majestic art of perpetual motion and free energy, of which we have been so bitterly accused and ridiculed in the most vicious terms, had commenced when physicist began to glorify putative law of conservation of energy and attack us with his ad hominen remarks. We are under constant ridicule and persecution by them for the last two centuries for they are convinced that perpetual motion is doomed to failure because of the restriction laws of nature imposes on perpetual motion, therefore, they do not expect success in our holy grail.
Perpetual motionist recognizes the existence of energy everywhere and wants to draw the ubiquitous energy in an economic and constructive manner by using methods in harmony with nature. For this purpose, he wants to call forth the aid of all peoples; national leaders, saints as well as prophets. Though his neighbors are skeptical of his motives, perpetual motionist has no grudge with them; those who are friendly to the perpetual motionist as well as those who are hostile to them are most welcome. His faith in perpetual motion is unshakable. However, it is not question of a blind faith, because theoretically, in a rational manner, perpetual motion deals with nature of ultimate reality (nothingness) as well as practically, it deals with burning problem of energy crisis in whose solution all peoples are interested. To deny the talents of a perpetual motionist is, indeed, deplorable. If physicist adopts the point of view of confining perpetual motion to a folly, then one, to all intents and purposes, denies the existence of the world which is also always in state of perpetual motion.
We live in an intense anti-perpetual motion age. We believe in the actuality of perpetual motion in nature at microcosmic as well as macrocosmic level with its manifold cyclical patterns that can be imitated by human ingenuity, and we believe that every perpetual motionist has duties towards promoting his majestic art for the welfare of the humanity.
The formation of groups like free energy has a stimulating effect in all spheres of human striving, perhaps mostly due to the difference between the convictions, methods and aims represented by us and that of scientific method employed by physicists, but in fact we find no substance in their theories, and so called laws of science established by them using scientific method. The anti-perpetual motion stance and antagonistic attitude advertised in the science by the physicists is consequence of their ignorance about perpetual motion. The psychological root of perpetual motionists lies in the fact that the perpetual motionists are a group of people unto themselves. Their spirit is visible in their inventive feats, physical appearance of their workshops, and one can notice their perpetual motion heritage in their intellectual works, and one can sense that there are among them deep connections in their disposition and numerous possibilities of communicating extraordinary ideas that are based on the intuitive way of thinking and of feeling rather than adherence to any scientific method. For these reasons, the perpetual motionists have come to form a contrary group with a definite character and principles of its own for the welfare of the society. We perpetual motionists must be conscious of our alien race and enemies and draw the logical conclusions from it. We must have our own inventor’s societies and adopt an attitude of courteous but consistent reserve to the physicist. Now, no more physicists must be allowed to examine our perpetual motion machine. The young free energy inventor is already aware of these differences as soon as he announces his invention to the world. He feels the resentment that grows out of an instinctive suspicion of his strange methods that naturally is often met with ridicule. Perpetual motionists are the target of instinctive resentment because they are of a different tribe who are bent to violate laws of science.
Pendulum, inclined planes, magnet and compass, clocks, balance, water wheel, different types of wheel and axle, weights and spheres etc all originally belonged to our reverend ancient perpetual motionist. Working with them was always part of our tradition but wannabee intellectuals and scientist stole our articles to theorize upon them and failed to understand our secret methods, works and experiments. It is unfortunate that perpetual motionists whose experiments once founded the science of mechanics, magnetism, hydrostatics have now been excommunicated from science. Same is true with our brethren alchemist. I think it has forced us to have our own inventor societies. But how long this oppression will continue? How long one has to remain isolated? I think some diplomacy is essential to propagate our doctrines and defeat the scientist and his motives and philosophy. In anti-perpetual motion age, it is auspicious for a perpetual motionist to find out groups opposite to scientist, growing in influence and we must shake hands with them. When there is will, there is way. It’s a matter of pleasure that we share many things common with our ‘creationist’ brethren. We love intelligent designs in nature as they do. Even we have ingenuity to imitate intelligent designs of nature. We must join hands with our creationist brethren as they are in better position than us. One way that could be done by perpetual motionist is to adopt creationist fashions and manners. We can learn much from them, their lobbying and unity. In this way, it is entirely possible to influence religious leaders and governments, be a civilized person, a reputed citizen, and at the same time be a faithful perpetual motionist who loves his methods and honors his forefathers. Truth of perpetual motion is based on facts, for this reason, not even well-established laws and close circle arguments of physicists can eradicate it. History of perpetual motion shows that perpetual motionist has been at constant war with physicist. A state of peace can only be achieved by mutual tolerance and respect. Each should adopt a policy of live and let live toward the other. By study of our past, by a better understanding of the spirit that accords with our forefathers, we must stick to mission anew that we are capable of fulfilling. What one must be thankful to Orffyreus for is the fact that we have a great movement in his footsteps that has given many perpetual motionists a justified pride that has once again given a despairing breed the necessary faith. Orffyreus has given new hopes to an exhausted people, the breed at the verge of extinction. There is something divine element which sticks perpetual motionist to Orffyreus and holds the perpetual motionist together. We are special breed as we possess a natural urge to invent perpetual motion. It is something else—which is indefinable. “Man acquires at birth, through heredity, a biological constitution which we must consider fixed and unalterable, including the natural urges which are characteristic of the human species.”[i] In our majestic art we find the simplest answer to the problem of energy crisis. Moreover, our design of the gravity wheel is simple. “When the answer is simple, God is speaking.” Albert Einstein said.
Yet, physicists have not changed their attitude to the perpetual motionist, which dates from the Helmholtz times with the establishment of law of conservation of energy. World has witnessed many dictators. The physicists, however, have a far more dangerous tradition than any of the other so-called dictators. They are always under wrong impression that perpetual motionist is universally notorious for charlatanry. The present behavior of these physicists towards the perpetual motionist merely proves to me how little human beings learn even from their past mistakes. Physicists having suppressed our perpetual motionist brethren, we do not wish to have anything more to do with physicists, the crimes of the physicists are really the most hideous that the history of the science has to show. It is evident that a proud perpetual motionist like me no longer wishes to be connected with any kind of physics official event or institution. After the mass suppression, ridicule and murder committed by the physicists against our perpetual motionist brethren, I do not wish any publications of mine to appear in journal of physics.
I shall describe in brief how Einstein debunked perpetual motion; I shall also talk about majestic art of perpetual motion and the theory of relativity as viewed by a perpetual motionist. Let me say that everybody among us is grieved to see that a perpetual motionist is represented as a crackpot, cranky, screwball, nut and so on in articles, books, and media etc. today. However, truth is that:
“When you're one step ahead of the crowd you're a genius. When you're two steps ahead, you're a crackpot.”
-Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, (Feb. 1998)
“The quest for perpetual motion has often been criticized by physicist as a futile, inventor’s eccentricity and frivolity. But when truth comes out; things will boomerang on him.”
- Deva Ramananda
“Everything has been said already, but as no one listens, we must always begin again.”
-Andre Gide, French thinker and writer
Made in the image of God, a perpetual motionist who is inclined to ‘create energy out of nothing’ is subject to law of God and true follower of God, the Creator who has created the world out of nothing. Therefore, a perpetual motionist is naturally antagonistic to the putative law of conservation of energy that suppresses his desire to ‘create something out of nothing’. Mass–energy equivalence is a major outcome of Special theory of relativity. Based on false assumption and his bogus ‘thought experiment with photon’[ii], Einstein’s lullaby equation E=MC2 [[iii]] represents an advanced form of law of conservation of matter and energy blended into a fine cocktail, the regular draughts of which have caused physicists to remain intoxicated for last century. Since a perpetual motionist is broadly understood as violator of law of conservation of energy, by default, he stands opposite to E=MC2, therefore, he is a true anti-relativist also; it does not matter to him if he might be perceived as anti-Einstein crank by some ignorant person.
Nevertheless, unmindful of these ad-hominem remarks, in order to understand true nature of energy and gravity, perpetual motionists have been experimenting with Over-balancing wheel for the last many centuries. “The search for truth is more precious than its possession.” said Albert Einstein; therefore, despite being aware of the fact that pursuit of perpetual motion is fraught with failures, I dedicated myself to the construction of various designs of Over-balancing wheel. The vast philosophical, astronomical, cosmological, mechanical and spiritual content of perpetual motion that naturally flows from headspring of Vedas is significantly different from media projected typical perpetual motion. After making investigations into them for last three decades, the essential in the being of a Vedic perpetual motionist of my type lies exactly in what I think, and how I think from a Vedic perspective, not in what I do and often suffer when a majority of my attempts to ‘create energy out of nothing’ via making designs of Over-balancing wheel fail. However, that does not raise any question over the validity of truths of Vedas as I am aware that Nature does not impose any restriction on the construction of a perpetual motion machine. The only prerequisite for perpetual motion is dedication; persistence and skill in the art that moves us towards perfection with constant practice that provide some results that are always encouraging that again inspire us to give another attempt until any one among us is anointed to succeed to obtain perpetual motion by grace of Nature. Thus, to be honest, I am obsessed with this endless way of divine perpetual motion and I don’t know where my research will ultimately lead me to. My preoccupation with Over-balancing wheel may still appear as mistake to someone but again I get enough solace and encouragement from Einstein’s inspiring sermon that says: “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” “There is no greater satisfaction for a just and well-meaning person than the knowledge that he has devoted his best energies to the service of the good cause.”[iv] I have no iconoclastic attitude. Under influence of Vedic wisdom, understanding that there is no sin in my activities related to perpetual motion; I do so with humility and with a degree of hesitation, therefore, I have no shame and no guilt. Yet, I apologize for being a perpetual motionist if somebody among my readers shall still mind my manners especially, my idiosyncratic way of writing.
“. . . and let me not be ashamed of my hope.”
– Psalm 119
What can I do? As my destiny would have it, I stumbled on perpetual motion by reading an article on Orffyreus and his Perpetual Motion wheel that had appeared in Kadambini, a Hindi magazine, long back in 1982. Orffyreus’ perpetual motion shocked my scientific sensibilities. It came to me in a different light, with a different meaning that was going to decide the future course of my life. I did not deliberately choose to perpetual motion. It was not a voluntary act. Like “love at the first sight,” it was something that happened to me rather than something I did. I fell in love with perpetual motion without knowing the tragic stories and failures behind it. It reminds me of Feynman, his remarks in this context of discovery are amusing –
“.... and, like falling in love with a woman, it is only possible if you do not know much about her, so you cannot see her faults. The faults will become apparent later, but after love is strong enough to hold you to her.”
So, I plunged into perpetual motion without much prior understanding. I only let my inner heart guide my actions. This was a turning point for me! I do not feel so bad that this project has taken me so long time. My entire life has gone into preparing for perpetual motion and rediscovering the great secret. I was quite taken by Orffyreus and his works. It was my desire to communicate the brilliance and beauty of the knowledge, this wonderful man created all along his invention, which has also been the wellspring for my work. It was my intuitive faith in him that confided me in perpetual motion, and I choose to rely on the invention of Orffyreus to expose follies of science. I raised the website http://orffyre.tripod.com in his glory. I decided I would attend to him forever. What is unique is beautiful. What is beautiful is unique. I found beauty in him and his great invention. I found beauty in the sameness we two had.
Because of the Orffyreus, I felt a new direction open in my life, a new point of interest. The question was what to do, how to proceed further, how could I find a way to explore further? Deva Ramananda, the prophet of perpetual motion, always guided me in my quest to understand mystery of perpetual motion. He said: “Next to the Word of God, the noble art of perpetual motion is one of the greatest treasures in the world. By eliminating energy crisis, perpetual motion, the Majestic art of the Nature, can calm the agitations of the soul at mass level. It is one of the most magnificent and delightful phenomenon Nature displays at all level, microcosm and macrocosm. All who want to understand majestic arts of Nature like perpetual motion if surrender to Nature in true faith, earnestly with deepness of the heart and soul, will certainly be heard, and will receive what they have asked and desired. Since the reward is rare, it may not be bestowed in a short time because Nature is intelligent enough to measure strength and weaknesses of her devotee, or she may not be interested in the very thing which her devotees desire. Yet she will bestow something greater and more wonderful than they had desired so far.” Hopefully, by grace of Nature, if Orffyreus’ perpetual motion gets reinvented by us and recognized, the descriptions will be altered, and tomorrow we shall become an engineer of perpetual motion, true man of science, and definitely then it would be realized by them that Orffyreus was really a great inventor and a champion of a noble cause. Instead of being alleged as fraudster and charlatan by scientific community, he is likely to be considered in future as one of the genius of the world. It is well worth the time invested to read about his incredible story of perpetual motion on the web site http://orffyre.tripod.com
[iii] Philip Ball in his article “Did Einstein discover E = mc2?” states:
“Fritz Hasenöhrl, a physics professor at the University of Vienna. In a 1904 paper Hasenöhrl clearly wrote down the equation E = 3/8mc2. Where did he get it from, and why is the constant of proportionality wrong? Stephen Boughn of Haverford College in Pennsylvania and Tony Rothman of Princeton University examine this question in a paper submitted to the arXiv preprint server. Hasenöhrl's name has a certain notoriety now, as he is commonly invoked by anti-Einstein cranks. His reputation as the man who really discovered E = mc2 owes much to the efforts of the antisemitic and pro-Nazi physics Nobel laureate Philipp Lenard, who sought to separate Einstein's name from the theory of relativity so that it was not seen as a product of "Jewish science".”
