Some of Johann Bessler's Clues shared and discussed.
I believe that I am running out of subjects to write about on this blog, so I have decided to bite the bullet and follow suggestions which might hopefully make this blog more interesting. Obviously the whole reason for this blog was to write about Johann Bessler and his clues and the latter have been markedly absent, for which I apologise. Blame the lack of discussion of clues on my paranoia! Afraid that I will accidentally give the game away and lose out to someone else? Yes and yet what if I should die tomorrow? All my work would become as nothing - which of course it might still do, but at least others will get a chance to decide for themselves whether I am completely nuts or perhaps I do have something to share.
All I ask is that I get credited with any of the ideas discussed here which it can be seen, clearly originated here. I have a copyright notice at the bottom of this page but some people do not seem to recognise the requirements this places upon them. Having said that, please feel free to discuss my ideas anywhere, just be fair and credit me as the author of them.
The first and most important clue for anyone who does not know is that the drawings in Das Triumphans, those done by Bessler, plus the one in Grundlicher Bericht and of course the Apologia Poetica wheel provide you with 90 percent of what you need to construct Bessler's wheel, BUT... each clue is skillfully camouflaged.
In addition the most vital piece of information without which your wheel will remain as stationary as mine has, is to be found in the text of Apologia Poetica, again cunningly disguised. Despite my inclusion of a clue of a textual nature, most of those clues remain undeciphered despite identifying many, and obviously illustrations, no matter how cunningly contrived, hold the best hope of understanding what Bessler wanted us to see, and I shall include illustrations in future posts
Almost from the beginning of my first encounter with the legend of Bessler's wheel, I thought that the inclusion of the drawings in Das Triumphans, seemed strangely irrelevant and quickly came to the conclusion that they had another purpose, that they contained information about the mechanisms inside the wheel, but cleverly disguised - and so I began to compare them. The number and succession of anomalies quickly grew and seemed disconnected, but then I realised that Bessler used multiple methods of disguise but by isolating them I eventually exposed two, different methods of concealment, which seemed to act in confirmation of each other. Others followed in confirmation of this technique, but so slowly that it has taken me almost my whole life to get to grips finally with his system.
I have spent the least amount of time studying Maschinen Tractate simply because it was never published, although clearly it was intended for publication. I have written about any findings I have made in Maschinen Tractate on my other websites, although the Toys page has given me some insights which I haven't shared to date but will do so soon.
Specific clues will follow but for those who have not visited them my web sites at http://www.theorffyreuscode.com/ and specifically the chapter 55 in Apologia Poetica contain some of the clues I have identified and to which I have added my speculations
The clues discussed here in this blog will be only those I know are correctly identified and whose meaning has been clearly revealed.
