Future Plan update.
Following the demise of my plan to share all that I have found out about the design of Bessler’s wheel, I have decided a two pronged approach is the way to go. I am proceeding with my original plan which has always been to build it and publish the results or, should it fail, publish the design anyway. It might lead to success by someone else, because I know that I have discovered 90% of it, if not the whole thing. At the same time I will draw up a detailed plan of how the wheel works according to me, and publish it when it's ready!
It might be thought that I could produce and publish such a drawing quite quickly, but I’m not the fastest nor the finest draughts-man on the planet, by any means, and I want it to be clear and understandable. I may decide to save each part of the graphic build and then run it as a simulation of the build process. I can’t do an actual simulation but I know there are many people out there who can.
I’m sorry that the sharing of the design and how I found each clue of Bessler’s which led me onward, has foundered on the rocks - but my plan involved some 50 posts and it wasn’t until I had posted about three times that the emails and PMs began to come in and I realised that I had set myself up for an impossible task of responding to each one, sometimes repeating myself several times, and with a growing number of them coming to me. An excellent response and I’m not complaining, but it proved to be a cumbersome thing to deal with and in the end not necessary.
So once the design is out there, then I can write about the clues and hopefully show that Bessler did intend to leave that information to us for our benefit - and it would show that our design was exactly the same as his, which would answer those who say that we can never know whether our designs are the same as his.
