Wow - so much negativity! Let me try to make things clearer. Some people seem to think that my prototype has failed or I've given up. Neither is true; the situation remains the same as it was during the first months of this year.

Just to spell it out for the umpteenth time - I am satisfied that I know how Bessler's wheel worked. I understand the principle and also the mechanisms and how they work, I am confident that I shall get it to work ...eventually. When I have proved to my satisfaction that it either does work or doesn't work, then and only then I will publish all the details of how I think it works.

There are some problems of adjustment which I have encountered which are solvable and the reason why I know this is because I have deciphered some of Bessler's coded information which suggests that the movement should be limited to a range of no more 15 degrees - but prior to this discovery I had, in my design, allowed the maximum of almost 45 degrees. It seems that this limit has to apply to make the wheel work.

To those who say that simulating this on a computer would have shown this problem up months ago, I would say that I doubt it. Knowing that there has to be a limit to the range of movement may seem obvious now but given the software to test this one might not necessarily try a limited range of movement, unless one had deciphered Bessler's clue to this feature first. Also there are variables in where that 15 degrees should operate most effectively and that again is something that will not necessarily spring to mind. So I shall continue to construct my prototype and hope to hit the right 'sweet spot' before we all grow too old!

I'm certain that some will jump up and down and accuse me of self-delusion, or trying to hype sales of my books and that is something I just have to deal with. I would just like to say that the sale of the books is simply a service to those who wish to know more about Bessler. I can barely cover my costs let alone make a living selling them. I wish only to be the one who succeeds in this venture - but if someone else beats me to it, then I wish them the best of luck, I shall not lose out because I have my revised first book almost ready for publication and I have no doubt that if and when this great mystery is solved by anyone then I shall find publishers knocking on my door eager to take on my book on.

So if you wish to continue to follow my progress (or lack of it) please stay, but if you are fed up with my apparent reluctance to share what I know just yet, then thank you for your patience and perhaps you'll drop by again some time soon.

NB I have decided to include the occasional clue that I believe I have deciphered correctly and I'm willing to see what others think of it.



  1. When and where can this clue be seen John?

  2. Err........I think you just saw it Trevor.

    John has told us the movement must be restricted to 15 degrees.

    Good luck with finishing your build John.



  3. Yes of course,sorry I missed it. I don't think I am going to have my wheel finished for June,but definitely all being well for July. This world cup soccer has been such a distraction in my own country,things have got a bit behind,but I'm nearly there. Maybe I'm savouring the moment.

  4. John, I must confess that I dont and wont relent from being critical to the lack of progress in your revelations. However, I found most of the retorts to your previous post rather ruthless, - a frenzied attack one after another! and as I was reading them- I felt rather sorry for the old JC!
    Despite what happens John, I will continue to follow your blog with interest, so keep the spirits up, and keep your head while others are loosing their's!

  5. I'll stay. Ignore the negative posters and please continue your work on the wheel and blog updates. Thank you. -ssmyser

  6. What happened to your writing papers to explain it all? What happened to it almost being ready?
    What happened to - you will publish your solution one way or the other, as soon as you come back from holiday?

    We can all take it that your solution DOESN'T WORK.

  7. "As promised, if this one should fail, I am ready to publish everything, but it may be a few days before I can do either."

    I support anyone exploring the wheel, but the above comment is inviting negative comments, especially as It is not the first time you have said something similar.

    Apart from that I commend you on your research, the publication of Besslers writings, and your website.

    What part of your research pointed you to the 15 degrees of movement?


  8. Perhaps "but it may be a few days before I can do either" should have said "but it may be a few YEARS before I can do either".
    Where are all the papers? Where is the work you have done so far?
    Why don't you want to use Algodoo to try out your ideas, rather than wasting days of time on each new change to the design, by actually building it every time?

  9. Don't worry anons, it will only take a couple o' days .. ;)

  10. Hi John.

    Your work whit Besslers wheel is just like E.Hemingways story " The old man and sea"

    "It is an unbelievable story of man verses beast as well as man verses himself. His fight with his own realization that age takes away many things, but wisdom." The beast is a wheel.

    The fish wouldn't fit on his boat so he had to tie it to the side of his boat. Sharks of different kinds were attracted to the blood, and Santiago had to kill them in order to save his fish. By the time he got back to the dock where he had left, there was only the skeleton of a great fish. He did not brag. He was only sorry. He felt guilty for destroying such a great fish that he had come to admire.

  11. To me a small angle of opportunity seems plausible.

  12. See my next post Frank. Possibly tomorrow or the next day.


  13. Or the next MONTH, year, century, you name it...

    Like I said - what happened to the papers you were working on, which you 'had' to do to 'prove' your concept would work? (Instead of actually building a working wheel, which of course would convince nobody (sarcasm))...

  14. Welcome back John. Just continue and ignore the "standard" vitriol. I guess it's part of "progress" these days.

  15. Andre should be ignor John's standard vitriol as well?

  16. hi, welcome back. i am regular visitor to your blog.pl ignore negative comments and continue the good work as usual.

  17. Are we tomorrow, or is tomorrow the day after tomorrow or what !?

  18. I think expression "He would try the patience of a saint" springs to mind...

    So no answers about what happened to the forthcoming paper, the patent, the professor in America, the other bloke who was supposed to be somebody special, but don't even know who he is, no prototype, no CAD version, nothing.

    In other words, the wheel, yet again, doesn't work...

    Prototype almost finished...
    I'm approaching the end of my Bessler wheel prototype construction, in fact I should finish it in the next few days.

    Use it or lose it
    Here's a quick update. The situation at present is this. I've just received a signed NDA from Pete Clarke and we have yet to arrange a meeting to discuss our alternative designs and,

    Decision time
    I have of course realised that it's May already and I've missed my ETA for the finished wheel by several months

    Patent? No thanks.
    The subject of patenting has arisen again

    The current build and why five?
    Here is an update on the current build.

    This model has presented some problems which I'm trying to sort out.

    Hostage to fortune.
    My seeming confidence in my ability to successfully reconstruct Bessler's wheel may seem like I have given a hostage to fortune

    My new frictionless and wobble-free wheel
    Recently I have managed to refrain from giving updates on my attempts to reconstruct Bessler's wheel

    Final few days and the Virgin Challenge
    After assembling and correcting various items on the reconstruction I am at last approaching completion.

    Priorities, patents and publishing
    The realisation hit me yesterday that I had got my priorities all wrong. How could I be sitting on the biggest discovery of my life

    Monday, 20 July 2009
    Reconstruction almost finished
    I have made and assembled all the mechanisms required for my reconstruction and three of them are fitted and working as I intended

    Friday, 10 July 2009
    Spontaneous Rotation? Yes!
    Work on the mechanism proceeds with more adjustments necessary.

    John, your mouth is writing checks your brain can't cash.

    Talk is cheap.


    And now you are shareing glues whitout working wheel lol :D :D :D

    You are funny old hopless dreamer, but in good way :D

  20. LOL at this one:
    "I'm approaching the end of my Bessler wheel prototype construction, in fact I should finish it in the next few days."

    So? What happened to all the work you have done so far, John? Has it all vanished, or DOESN'T IT WORK?

  21. I have to congratulate you guys, you sure are persistent little critters. I think I could find a lot of better things to do with my time than go through all of the past comments made here or anywhere else and find fault, but whatever turns your crank...

    I believe I've answered all your questions already.


  22. John, take it as an exercise..

    Will you survive against science dogma if you ever get this wheel to turn!? .. What do you think they will do?

    Discredit you all the way..


  23. Hi Mr. Collins,

    Thank you for your unselfish work. Millions die each day throughout the world since they do not have fresh water. Can you imagine, that at this moment, there are people suffering, thirsty and hungry? But, as soon as you can, you will finish the wheel and the day of their suffering will finally see an end.

    If you can find some time today to work on the wheel, I am sure many of your fellow humans will appreciate it. Each day brings more death until you release the wheel.


  24. Actually, millions die each day throughout the world because their parents were too stupid and too uncaring to provide them with food and water, or are victims of other stupid and uncaring idiots who spend their lives waging war on other people. Nothing to do with a lack of a gravity wheel.

    John, you haven't answered any of the questions. Go back and read your blog posts from before you went on holiday - you made it very clear that you HAD the solution, and also that you were going to release your solution, within a few days. Yet you never did.
    Now we hear nothing at all about any of that, as if it never happened.

  25. No amount of cajoling is going to work...the thought of taking all the credit to oneself is too alluring...PM or bessler wheel solution or idea doesn't easily come to everyone...and whoever happens to know something won't like to loose the secret without getting all the accolades and perks that come with it..

    What does breaking a few assurances here and there matter really??? The stakes are too high....

    Knowing how the wheel works isn't enough, and who doesn't? Whether it practically performs when built actually matters.

    And this may take years and years of perfecting if the actual bessler design is not known...

    This is what is the actual status with us, leave alone JC sir...

  26. John your behavior is getting irrational and selfish. People support you because they believed in you but even their support will seize after all the broken promises. You can't expect a dog to stay loyal if you keep mistreating it.

    The tone of you last blog posts makes it seem that people are getting you down but in fact it's your own self who has burned your loyal followers over and over. How can you expect them to keep believing in you?

    Perhaps if you kept your promises you would have made more friends than people who lost faith in you.

  27. Hey, it's been something like 4 days since the day before after the day we were supposed to have some news.. It was supposed to be tomorrow last week after the week of the last week it was supposed to be announced last year before the year after tomorrow!!

  28. John, close the blog and give them all the international signal, if you get my drift. Or put a password on it for a selected few that might contribute meaningful things. Just continue; and publish when you are ready for it. My offer still stands, in case you're interested.

  29. Yes, just close the blog like you should have done about two years ago, instead of getting people's hopes up.
    Honestly John, if you can't see what the problem is, there's no hope. Just read through your posts for the past year and look at what actually came of them - nothing. No wonder people are fed up - we come here because we're interested in Bessler's wheel. When somebody says they have the solution, we are enthralled. Then they start making excuses, changing their story, delaying, etc.etc. No wonder people get fed up.

    So what happened to everything you were talking about before you went to Spain? You were just about to publish. You were just about to reveal the secret "working or not", meaning SOON, as in, days, or a week at most. But you didn't.

  30. Lie
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to: navigation, search
    This article is about untruthfulness. For other uses, see Lie (disambiguation).

    A lie (also called prevarication, falsehood) is a known untruth expressed as truth.

    A lie is a type of deception in the form of an untruthful statement, especially with the intention to deceive others, often with the further intention to maintain a secret or reputation, protect someone's feelings or to avoid a punishment or repercussion for one's actions. To lie is to state something that one knows to be false or that one does not honestly believe to be true with the intention that a person will take it for the truth. A liar is a person who is lying, who has previously lied, or who tends by nature to lie repeatedly - even when not necessary.

  31. Deception is the keyword here.

    Seriously John, what did you expect was going to happen!? .. This is probably what you wanted, I realize that now.. You were about to give it away, now you wonder if you were making a mistake by giving up ideas freely.. I believe you are now thinking on capitalizing on that idea (if an idea there is) ..

    You were probably approached by some members from arrache ou something like that.. You gave up your ideals and are now under contracts with some people working in cooperation with you..

    So your goal is to postpone until nobody is interested anymore and you hope we simply vanish.. Will you post your real wheel idea or are you creating a dummy wheel for all to see and thus "keep your word" ??

    That, or you are completely fooling yourself ..

    WHY OHHHH WHY is it that f|_|CKING Hard to share ideas for all to benefit on this st|_|pid monkey planets !??? ..

    I always shared my ideas on besslerwheel and grew tired of being on a forum where we are supposed to share, when I understood that older members are just there to fish ..

  32. Actually he got his most recent ideas from me, about a prime mover that has equal leverage against the wheel both upside down and straight up.
