Johann Bessler and the Orffyrean Code

I’m posting the Legend of Bessler’s wheel again because I’m going to be away for a few days.  I’ll respond to any comments as and when it’s possible. My work on my wheel will get on faster when I return and with any luck I’ll finish it soon.

Please feel free to comment if you wish and I will try to check back daily. So here it is again

The Legend of 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.

Karl the Landgrave of Hesse permitted Bessler to live, work and exhibit his machine at the prince's castle of Weissenstein.  Karl was a man of unimpeachable reputation and he insisted on being allowed to verify the inventor's claims before he allowed Bessler to take up residence  This the inventor reluctantly agreed to and once he had examined the machine to his own satisfaction Karl authorised the  publication of his approval of the machine.  For several years Bessler was visited by numerous people of varying status, scientists, ministers and royalty.  Several official examinations were carried out and each time the examiners concluded that the inventor's claims were genuine.

Over several years Karl aged and it was decided that the inventor should leave the castle and he was granted accommodation in the nearby town of Karlshaven. Despite the strong circumstantial evidence that his machine was genuine,  Bessler failed to secure a sale and after more than thirty years he died in poverty.  His death came after he fell from a windmill he had been commissioned to build.  The windmill was an interesting design using a vertical axle which allowed it to benefit from winds from any directions. 

He had asked for a huge sum of money for the secret of his perpetual motion machine, £20,000 which was an amount only affordable by kings and princes, and although many were interested, none were prepared to agree to the terms of the deal. Bessler required that he be given the money and the buyer take the machine without viewing the internal workings.  Those who sought to purchase the wheel, for that was the form the machine took, insisted that they see the secret mechanism before they parted with the money. Bessler feared that once the design was known the buyers could simply walk away knowing how to build his machine and he would get nothing for his trouble.
This problem was anticipated by Bessler and he took extraordinary measures to ensure that his secret was safe, but he encoded all the information needed to reconstruct the machine in a small number of books that he published. He implied that he was prepared to die without selling the secret and that he believed that post humus acknowledgement was preferable to being robbed of his secret while he yet lived.

I became curious about the legend of Bessler’s Wheel, while still in my teens, and have spent most of my life researching the life of Johann Bessler (I’m now 74).  I obtained copies of all his books and had them translated into English and self-published them, in the hope that either myself or someone else might solve the secret and present it to the world in this time of pollution, global warming and increasingly limited energy resources.
It has recently become clear that Bessler had a huge knowledge of the history of codes and adopted several completely different ones to disguise information within his publications.  I have made considerable advances in deciphering his codes and I am confident that I have the complete design. 

Johann Bessler published three books, and digital copies of these with English translations may be obtained from the links to the right of this blog.  In addition there is a copy of his unpublished document containing some 141 drawings - and my own account of Bessler’s life is also available from the links.  It is called "Perpetual Motion; An Ancient Mystery Solved?"  Bessler's three published books are entitled "Grundlicher Bericht", "Apologia Poetica" and "Das Triumphirende...". I have called Bessler's collection of 141 drawings his Maschinen Tractate, but it was originally found in the form of a number of loosely collected drawings of perpetual motion designs. Many of these have handwritten notes attached and I have published the best English translation of them that I was able to get. Bessler never published these drawings but clearly intended to do so at some point.

For some ideas about Bessler’s code why not visit my web sites at www.theorffyreuscode.com

Finally,  I'm repeating the coded clue I left at the bottom of my previous blog. An Anonymous person solved it. It's an anagram and below it is the solution;

  1. I think the answer to Bessler's Wheel has been found, on your forum, by the poster 'Calloway', involving pendulums hanging from the eight points of the wheel, and hitting one of a pair of sliding weights at the nine o'clock position, when the wheel is turning clockwise.

    https://www.besslerwheel.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8172&start=0

    What do you think of that idea, John? I wish Calloway would post some videos, how hard can it be nowadays?

    1. I found it interesting but I had already designed and built something very similar several years ago and it remained stationary unfortunately! But that is not to say it might be possible alter it to obtain a mechanical advantage.

      His design doesn’t match mine in any way and because it’s taken me so long to get to it, I can’t really say that I think it will work, but I’m always open minded and I wish him luck with his design.

    2. Anonymous you can tell Callaway that he is on the right track one little change and he's got it! It's a change that will simplify. I'd love to give him a gift before I leave this Mortal coil. Most people would find this rather exciting but the real exciting part of it is where Bessler got it from. There is unquestionable truth he left outside of the books he wrote you could say he has his fingerprints all over it. For all the scientists and physicists who question its validity where it's hidden will be one cold slap in the face because it is in a in a book they already Revere it shows an experiment and results that can be replicated you could say it's unquestionable but they'll always be greedy people who love to distort truth. They will question it however this time they will bear the brunt of jokes not the people who are dedicated to the way the truth and the life!

      P.s also good numbers 8:16 and yes there is such a thing as a tesseract in the real world!

    3. The change to simplify is to connect all the pendulums one to the next one so they act as one.

      Delete
    4. How do you connect all the pendulums together, one to the next one? The distances between them constantly changes as the wheel rotates, so it's impossible. Anyway, Calloway hasn't finished building the adjustments to his wheel yet, so who cares what Stephen Glorioso says? I have to LOL at "tell Calloway that he is on the right track", as if Glorioso knows the answer all along, but just won't tell us. If you knew the answer, you would have published it, or built a wheel, by now. At least Calloway published his entire solution, in one short paragraph, so that anybody could understand it.

  2. Stephen Glorioso, why don't you just tell us what the improvement is? What is the point of claiming that you know the solution he needs, without telling us (or him) what it is?

    ReplyDelete
  3. I have looked at his animation and there is no over unity, no unaccounted forces. This is nothing but a break even device (at best) and that does not factor in friction.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Whose animation have you looked at, Anonymous? Calloway didn't make the animation, can't you read?
    And of course, Stephen Glorioso doesn't come back with a reply, the typical tactic of the fools who post up 'hints' that are completely useless. "I know the secret and YOU are just SO close to it, and now I'll talk about anything but the solution that you need to finally get your wheel working..." So very tiresome.

  6. RAF John, does your build use an escapement? Is it made to give 5 impulses with each wheel turn? Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  7. RAF Thanks, John. Are your weights pierced by springs or are you using springs to assist the movement?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. John, do you use any springs at all in your wheel? Bessler said he used springs in his wheel.

      Delete
    2. No, no springs, but Bessler simply said, to the question ‘do you use springs in your whee?’’, ‘no, not in the way you mean’, which I take to mean that they were used but they were not a necessary feature for it to work. I sometimes use them to restrain lateral movement, or to soften impact, or to help start and action as soon as possible.

  8. Hi John, if your wheel really works, Do you have a scientific theory that explain from where the extra energy come?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, gravity via falling weights and I know this is taught to be impossible.

      JC

      Delete
    2. John I think Lipe was wondering about overunity. You know, overriding energy in = energy out. Since all your weights weigh the same, do your primary weights get raised up over a greater height than the shifter weights fall? (Vertical dimension measure only) If not, it won't work.

      Delete
    3. I think you are referring to my discussion on my website www.besslerswheel.com, because you used my references to ‘shifter’ and ‘primary’ weights which I posted in 2010. Although my nomenclature might be the same, the actions I described there have changed and the shifter weight has the effect of performing two actions in one go. It is therefore in one sense also the primary weight. The weight which was the primary weight is a secondary weight now. Sorry for being vague but I prefer to keep the design to myself until it works or doesn’t.

    4. So it violates the conservation of energy law right? I really think it's possible to work, intuitively it is but I would like to know what you think about the physical/scientific point of view.

      Delete
    5. I believe that there is a way to make use of falling weights. The fall is caused or enabled by gravity. The fall may provide them energy to move another piece of mechanism. These two actions could lead to a brief over balance etc, etc, etc.

  9. RAF Thanks John, Would you say which M.T. drawings are useful in your build? In my single crossbar build, I incorporate M.T 's:18,25,138 to 141 and 142. Also, do your weights swing or slide? Thanks

    1. RAF, I only see the ‘Toys’ page as having some vital information which is not available elsewhere. Plus other stuff there are other features which repeated in other places. I may say more in next blog.

  10. RAF John, When your weights move , do they swing or slide?

  11. RAF John, Are you able to use the pantograph movement in your build? Also, Do you feel the square shape was important to Mr. Bessler?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lots of questions RAF! I use the scissor mechanism. What square shape?

      JC

      Delete
    2. I think RAF means the square shape formed by the bent horizontal line in some of the A's that Bessler used to mark parts in Maschinen Tractate. Its actually a pantograph, but it looks like an A, and if extended it could be storks bills, but the pantograph itself really isn't storkbills. So I think RAF wants to know if the square shaped thing is a clue beyond the storkbills. Perhaps both items are used? Or perhaps neither one, but some kind of hybrid? I know that's nothing in your design, but in case your design doesn't work, it might be worth looking into.

    3. i think u right, doesnt mt 24 and 25 say

      "There is something one must learn first before one can grasp and correctly understand the good quality of the invention."

      they both have square thingy

      sound like very important

    4. The scissor mechanism, pantograph and the bent crossbar in the letter A’s all need to be applied in a different or special way, as Bessler said.

  15. Overlapping rhombus fourth-dimensional geometry interlocking chain Buckle hinge weight of course there are more designs in 4th and 5th dimensional geometry I suggest you work on them one at a time it's a little mind-boggling and remember greed is an evil root

    1. Forget rhombus, you have the scissor mechanism, and the ‘greed is an evil root’ phrase refers to the actions of Bessler’s enemies,

  17. Stephen, you give the impression that you have the complete information about Bessler’s wheel, and you seem to be giving out tiny snippets of information designed to tease us all, but I have formed the opinion that you know nothing and are just enjoying the interest and curiosity you believe your comments generate. I may be wrong of course but some of your so-called hints seem to me to be irrelevant or incorrect. In my opinion you are acting in a similar way to Trevor of ‘the wheel is only days away fame’.

  18. Here we are at the threshold of a new environment for our beautiful planet. One that can, and will be seen by our grandchildren. The focus of each of us is to lift up the solution for what it is..... a miraculous event. Like no other A JOY to be here for the experience of euphoria

  19. RAF Thanks John for cross versus crossbar explanation. As designed ,will your five mechanisms produce gentle bumps against the downward moving rim? Will it produce sliding or scraping or scratching sounds as detailed by eyewitnesses? Thanks!
