A blog about Johann Bessler and the Orffyreus Code and my efforts to decipher it. I'll comment on things connected with it and anything I think might be of interest to anyone else.
Please note that there is a copyright notice at the bottom of the page. I have no objection to my words and ideas being discussed elsewhere but I would be grateful if you would acknowledge my authorship.
I have published a commitment to complete what I believe to be Bessler’s wheel, comprising the same internal design as his, by the 6th June this year. I chose this date partly because I’m determined to finish it as soon as possible, and the 6th June is only a few weeks away - and also because Bessler first exhibited his wheel on this date, in 1712. I have said that I have detected and deciphered more and more of the design over a number of years, and I am convinced that I know the whole solution. I’m 74 years of age and think that I had better share what I know while I am still fit and able. Not that I am suggesting that I am too old to continue if this doesn’t work - I’m just being cautious!
Being aware of countless failures in the past, I am prepared to accept the possibility of failure this time, but unlike every time before, I shall publish everything I know. Now my promise may sound empty because no one knows whether my current knowledge is worth a hill of beans; well it is quite extensive and will surprise many people once they learn how much information I have uncovered, but the proof will have to wait until I’ve finished and tested my wheel.
Despite lacking much free time to work on my wheel, I’m certain I can complete this project on time and there is nothing so disciplining as the pressure of a finishing date, or publishing,date.
There is also nothing so demanding as the rise of the spectre of global warming. Action groups such as Extinction Rebellion are using so-called nonviolent resistance to avert climate breakdown, halt biodiversity loss, and minimise the risk of human extinction and ecological collapse. I don't agree with their methods which harm people trying to get on with their lives, and I don't accept the argument that those people should be concerning themselves with the future rathere than living their lives. We get the message, please no more! The protest group were established in the United Kingdom in May last year with about one hundred academics signing a call to action in support in October 2018. They want to rally support worldwide around a common sense of urgency to tackle climate breakdown. One of their suggestions was that the British government should put in place requirements to reduce greenhouse gases to zero within the next five years!
The ramifications of such a policy are so far beyond any possibility of attainment that I suspect it was a dramatic statement based on imaginary ideals but designed to goad politicians into action. In my opinion the solution they all talk about is at hand - Bessler's wheel.
A successful demonstration of the wheel and its potential to generate cheap, clean electricity would do more than all the political gesturing currently entertaining us (or irritating the hell out of us) around the world.
So 6th June 2019 is when I will publish all the information I have, whether the wheel works or doesn't. If/when it works we shall tell the world we have a solution.

I was reading, yet again, how the force of gravity cannot possibly be a source of energy. It's not just the world at large who refuse to accept the argument that gravity can be tapped, there are many members of the Besslerwheel Forum who also subscribe to that view. And yet they can only posit the possibility that there must have been some additional source of energy which Bessler discovered and which we must be able to use as well.
So perhaps we should look at the reason why gravity can be used as an enabler of continuous rotation .
Almost 2500 years ago, Plato insisted that with inert matter in motion, because it is not the cause of its own motion; its motion requires a moving cause different from itself. This moving cause cannot itself be of such kind that it also requires to be moved from without. To put it another way There must be an unmoved mover, or 'that which moves without being moved'.
A prime mover (Latin: primum movens) is a concept advanced by Plato's best student, Aristotle, as a primary cause (or first uncaused cause) or "mover" of all the motion in the universe. He wrote, 'as is implicit in the name, the "unmoved mover" moves other things, but is not itself moved by any prior action.
He wrote, 'if it is true that when A is in motion there must be some B that moves A, then if B is itself in motion there must be some C moving B, and so on. This series cannot go on forever, and so it must come to a halt in some X that is a cause of motion but does not move itself—an unmoved mover. Oddly, Aristotle is venturing close to describing a perpetual motion, which he implies is impossible within the context of his argument.
Briefly, then, there has to be an initiator of motion, or ‘first cause of all the motion in
"The unmoved mover”, moves other things but
is not itself moved by any other prior action. We know of only one unmoving mover - gravity.
So primummovens or primum mobile referred to by Bessler and used in conjuction with his statement that the weights in his machine are the actual cause of his perpetual motion, must apply to the action of gravity upon his machine, and be the sole cause of its rotation.
Gravity is an unmoved mover. The source or initiator of every other movement in the universe can be traced back to the effect of gravity. It is not regarded as an energy source because it is a conservative force. A conservative force is a force with the property that the work done in moving a particle between two points is independent of the path taken. The gravitational force is conservative because the work done by the gravitational force on an object depends only on its change in height.
Because gravity is indentified as a conservative force and because its work done in moving a particle between two points is independent of the path taken, it is understood to rule out gravity driven continuously turning wheels - such as Bessler's. We know that Besser's wheel was not a closed system, therefore it had access to an external force. There is no other 'unmoved mover' force in the universe as far as we know, therefore the only force which fits the bill is gravity.
Notice how we repeatedly state that gravity does do work. If it does work it consumes energy, but that energy is limitless, so although it expends energy, it never runs out. It is perpetual, so now we have a force which apparently consumes energy and does work and does not exhaust its energy supply. If that does not decribe a force which can supply endless energy, I don't know what is.
If we could find other conservative forces which drive mechanical motors then we might understand why Bessler's wheel worked. Wind pressure and water pressure are conservative forces which drive mechanical motors, but they move, due to various causes among them, gravity.
We know the point of interaction between gravity and the wheel; it is the weights. They are doing the same job as air molecules do with windmills, and water molecules do with water wheels. or hydro-electric dams. The weights do the job of interacting between gravity and the wheel, causing it to rotate continuously, if the configuraton is correct.
I will be posting my own thoughts on this as soon as my wheel has been finished and tested - working or not. Please share the following link and donate if you wish to aid my granddaughter's treatment. www.helpamy.co.uk/ JC
So often, I am asked a number of questions about my plans and intentions; when will my wheel be finished? What will I do if it works? What will I do if it doesn't work? So here are my intentions and hopes. Of course it's always wise to bear in mind the ancient proverb, 'Man proposes, but God disposes', so subject to that advice.....
I will finish the wheel within a few weeks. Sorry I can't be more specific about the time, but there is a lot going on in my life at present which takes away some of the time I could be spending on the wheel, but that is normal life and one of the reasons why Bessler said he succeeded where everyone else had failed; he had no family and no permanent job, so he could spend as much time as he needed working towards the solution to his wheel. I anticipate that it could be finished before the end of this May, but you know how time slips away and it could be June before I finish and test it.
If it works, I will take a video of it working, and add explanations showing how it works and provide some of the clues I deciphered to prove that it is the same concept as Bessler's. I have some other ideas which are still under consideration, but there will be no patent application to protect the design. I have received an offer to freely globalise the design from an influential person which I am considering, and I shall post on one of my websites more details of the mechanism and more of the clues I discovered which lead me to believe that I have the solution. There will be links to the video and photos of its interior.
If it doesn't work, and I have certainly experienced that more times than I care to recall, I shall post details of my design and the clues they derived from, in the hope that someone else can take it forward to get to the actual solution that I presumably will have missed. I really can't delay that information any longer.
At the New Year I reaffirmed my certainty that this year would see Bessler's wheel working. My reasons for sounding so sure, more this year than previously, was due to the fact that the many clues I had found were so cleverly constructed that, once I understood how they were designed to mislead and got the meaning, I did not have any doubts about their validity. I'm sure many people will think I'm deluding myself, and the wheel won't work, and though that may be true in part, I am confident that when the hidden information is deciphered there will be a consensus that the clues are real but perhaps I have missed some important feature that is all the mechanisms needs to work as Bessler's did. But I remain confident that this time the wheel will work.
There will probably be a slight gap betweeen the wheel test and any announcement, regardless of success or failure, as I will need time to assemble the appropriate text and drawings to publish. Much of it has been already accomplished but there are a few things I need to finish before publication. In the mean time I will try to post the occasional blog just to let you know I'm still here and working on the project.
