In 1712 Johann Bessler (aka ORFFYREUS) exhibited a machine which he claimed, drew its energy from gravity. Despite nearly twenty years of the most
stringent tests, examinations and public trials, not the slightest sign of deception was ever found. Bessler died 33 years later, in poverty, still
maintaining that his machine was genuine and there was no convincing evidence to the contrary.
Over the years ive heard a few stories of "Perpetual Motion" machines,most have been proven to be fake and the ones that have arroused public
intrest tend to suddenly dissapear from view?
Am i right in thinking that it is still unproven that perpetual motion exsists?
I remember hearing a story of a scottish inventor that proclaimed to a mainstream london newspaper that he had achieved the creation of perpetual
motion through the use of gyroscopes,he then suddenley vanished without trace and his family openly voiced their concerns for his well being......does
any one remember this? (it was some time mid 80's)
He was never heard of again and neither was his invention.
The point im raising is this:-
Did he sell his invention privatley to the highest bidder,take his cash and run?
Was he silenced by a private party ie goverment or corporation?
I cant find anything about this story on the web so we wont ever know but i can imagine there would be seriously concerned partys in goverment and
industry all over the world should a working perpetual motion machine surface,especially if its inventor(s) decided not sell it privatley and offer
its sales to the masses!
Does any one know of similar storys or links to this topic?
here is a link to the above story of the perpetual motion machine at the top of the page.
