THE PERPETUAL MOTION TRACTATUS:An Investigation Into Loopholesby Nathan Coppedge                                                                              back to PM MainINTRODUCTION:I've decided to revise my tractatus to show a more readable development of principles, not via contingency, such as the view that experiments connote laws, but rather to demonstrate the key reasoning involved specifically in proving perpetual motion.The older defense, involving laws, can be seen here.Notice that the new format is more organized and concise.FIRST QUADRA1. Perpetual motion seems tricky.2. Many designs have been tempting.3. There is little evidence in about 2000 years that any has succeeded.4. Perpetual motion, if it is to exist now, must be a work of genius.SECOND QUADRA: Critique1. No single idea is a substitute for perpetual motion machines.2. Conventional machines use too much fuel. How do they exist in the first place?3. A conventional machine is not self-running.4. A conventional machine does not define the word "machine."THIRD QUADRA1. Individual principles can be tested, and succeed independently.2. If a combination of principles is requisite, this may explain the difficulty.3. If we are to believe in machines, we must, by definition, believe in PMMs.4. To find a PMM, we must simply design a "machine."FOURTH QUADRA1. We begin with a mechanical epiphany2. It is a puzzle of infinity3. The answer is to make the puzzle work!4. It need only do work when it moves upwards! So the downwards is always greater."Novis Mundis Est Et Eternum!"Simple Enough!A NEW ADDITION:THE FOUR RECIPROCALS OF PERPETUAL MOTION1.--> It generates energy through motion-->It creates motion, so it creates energy2.-->It is a finite proportion-->But it's scale is indefinite3.-->The (lever) is acting at greater or less than level-->But the mobile weight doesn't need to go to a higher level4.-->If it is linear-->It may be circularBROWSE DIAGRAMS OR VIEW THE THEORY OR CONCEPT PAGESPERPETUAL MOTION DIAGRAMSRETURN TO N.
