Before that I must tell you that many people believe Bessler’s claim to have succeeded in building a perpetual motion machine was genuine. It was driven by falling weights so, it is claimed, it depended on the force of gravity. I discovered that Bessler had left instructions showing how his machine worked, cleverly encoded in several different ways. I have managed to decipher much of his hidden information, and it is this which I shall be publishing here.
The Legend of Johann Bessler’s Wheel.
On 6th June, 1712, in Germany, Johann Bessler (also known by his pseudonym, Orffyreus) announced that after many years of failure, he had succeeded in designing and building a perpetual motion machine. For more than fourteen years he exhibited his machine and allowed people to thoroughly examine it. Following advice from the famous scientist, Gottfried Leibniz, he devised a number of demonstrations and tests designed to prove the validity of his machine without giving away the secret of its design.
The information to be published here will include a video of my reconstrction of Bessler's wheel revolving. Another video will give a brief account of the codes and where they are. A book detailing all of the codes and their meaning will follow.
