How might a motive mass machine achieve perpetual motion?If I needed to tell you in brief which of my designs I think might actually work,and cite evidence,I would bring your attention to the principle that when two equal weights areattached by cord which runs over a pulley, if one weight pulls with its entiremass, while the other is supported by wheels set on a track, it appears that theone mounted on a track will move, in spite of the fact that they have equalmasses. It always takes less energy to push something on wheels than it takesto lift the same object straight into the air.Now let's suppose that the afore-mentioned track is mounted on top of asee-saw. Even if the track is sloped upward by the tilt of the see-saw, the fullweight of the falling weight may be enough to pull the tracked weight forward,so long as no portion of the track is sloped sharply vertical. If the track iscentered so that one portion is on one half of the see-saw, and one half on theother, pulling the weight across the track will cause the see-saw to tilt.Now let's suppose that there is a series of these see saws. Only in this case all ofthe weights are set on tracks mounted on the see-saws. No strictly free-falligweights are necessary, because when a given weight is pulled horizontally to theend of its see-saw, its weight acts vertically on the see-saw, which I am supposingwith certain configurations (with due attention to geometry) may be used to pullanother tracked weight.Now when the first weight is moved manually towards the pulley, its full weightproduces downward force from the end of the see-saw underneath it, through thecord, over the pulley, and then tugging on the next tracked weight. I am supposingthat since the second weight is on a similar track, with wheels or ball bearings, itwould move with relative ease. The mass of the first weight has been convertedinto horizontal rolling motion, which just incidentally causes the second see-saw totilt (hypothetically).When the second weight reaches the opposite end of its track, its full weight    contributes to pulling another identical weight on a third see-saw. IF we can seehere that the mass of the weight is always sufficient to move the following  weight, it seems that the third or fourth weight's see-saw might be used to resetthe first see-saw.IF the process perpetuates itself and consists entirely of mass movements, thereis no doubt that the machine is over-unity and could be used to create energy.The concept is similar in principle to a row of dominoes that have the samepotential energy before and after the first chain reaction.In fact the success of the design depends to a great extent on the geometry. Formore about this, see my personal critique.The preceding is a slightly simplified explanation of what I call Motive Mass, oneof five concepts I have formulated to try to solve the problem of free energy.Originally I supposed that the use of a weighted see-saw would contribute to theforce, since cumulative force from the difference weight would contribute to asingle jerking motion that might be sufficient to move the next weight. Now that Iobserve the principle of moving a rolling weight with a weight of the same mass,it seems as though this is no longer necessary.The implementation that I think is closest to achieving perpetual motion isIteration 2, which is  now available for viewing under Diagrams 11 and 12 atMotive Mass Diagrams.I also recommend the photos of my experiments with Motive Mass.RETURN TO N.
