Bessler’s Wheel, odd numbers and the Pyramids.

You might think there cannot be any connection of interest to us, between Bessler’s wheel and the pyramids, but I will explained.

As many know I have remained stubbornly convinced that Bessler’s wheel had five mechanisms - I’m talking about his first wheels, both one-way wheels. I have also suggested that in other versions there may have been seven, nine and even eleven mechanisms.  In support of this conclusion I must point to the Maschinen Tractate (MT) drawings which include some anomalies in the numbering. See my article in www.theorffyreuscode.com, published 2009.

Bessler included the number of each illustration in his woodcuts. These are present up to and including number 104 They are of a similar style except for the numbers 52, 72, 92 and 102. In each of these cases the number two is drawn to look like a Z. All other examples of the letter two are shown in the usual curved style.  The angular number two may be intended to reflect the letter V twice, or in Roman numerals 55.

The ‘zed-like twos’ help to point to their accompanying partners, namely 50,70,90 and 100. The first and most obvious fact is that the number 5 is the first number to include the angular two. The only other numbers are the following odd numbers, 7 and 9. Why would this be done, I wondered. It seems to me that ever since I discovered the pentagon and the ubiquity of the number 5, that Bessler seemed to be suggesting that his wheel would not work with an even number of weights and that 5 was the ideal number. So 7 and 9 and even 11 mechanisms would also work but might be difficult to fit in to a wheel.

I also pointed out on the same website that MT137, the dodecagram or twelve pointed circle, also known as the circle of fifths because of its musical connotations, also contained a heptagram, or seventh circle.

So there are circles of fifths, sevenths and twelfths.  Is there any more? Many years ago I was watching a TV documentary on the pyramids of Egypt.  The presenter described the so-called ‘bent’ pyramid of Dahshure, which was started at a too steep an angle and had to be modified to a shallower slope when it was about half built.  It is thought that it became unstable at the initial angle, which interestingly  was set at 54 degrees, and then modified to 43 degrees.

54 degrees was immediately recognisable; it forms the two base angles of one segment of a pentagram.  It means that the apex of the pyramid was intended to form an angle of 72 degrees.  So each of the four faces of the pyramid was intended to reflect one segment of a pentagram.  Seeing as this idea did not pan out well because of the problems in building a pyramid with a geometrical figure inherent in its design, I wondered how they got on with the great pyramid at Giza.

It has been established that this pyramid (Khufu’s) was built with sloping sides of  about 51.5 degrees. If the bottom two angles of a triangle are both 51.5 degrees, that give an apex of 77 degrees, which doesn’t make sense at first sight.  360 divided by 77 gives us 4.67 - nothing relevant springs to mind.  I wondered if they wanted to build a pyramid reflecting a heptagram, but that would necessitate a slope angle of about 64 degrees, which we know was too steep.

The slope is 51.5 giving the apex an angle of 77 degrees.  It stresses the importance of the number 7 by producing it twice, and a circle divided by 7 gives.....51.5 degrees at the top angle of the pentagram segment. Although the builders could not build a pyramid reflecting a heptagram, they cleverly pointed to the geometric figure even though it wasn’t actually there.  It demonstrated what they wished to convey - their skill in constructing buildings which either demonstrated geometric figures, or implied their presence figuratively, rather than failing and building a pyramid without this key ingredient.

The reason I introduced the pyramid theme, is because Bessler used a similar technique to hide information.  Without actually drawing it he pointed to its existence with subtle clues and we could then infer its presence, just as we can the pentagram at the bent pyramid and the heptagram in the great pyramid at Giza.

One more fascinating fact; the Great Giza pyramid at 481 feet, was the tallest building on the planet until 1360, when Lincoln cathedral in England was built. It’s spire originally reached 525 feet before it collapsed in a storm, many years later.

  1. Z is also the 26th letter of the alphabet and 2 + 6 equals 8 so that could mean he used 8 mechs instead of 5 like you think. Maybe for those page numbers 52, 72, 92, and 102 we are supposed to use the 2 like an 8 and then multipy it by the first number? That gives 5 x 8 = 40, 7 x 8 = 56, 9 x 8 = 72, and 10 x 8 = 80. Each of these numbers might relate to a measurement of some part inside of his wheels. The 72 could mean 72 inches which was half the radius of the Merseburg and Kassel wheel drums. Maybe, otoh, we're supposed to divide the first numbers by 8 to get 5/8 = 0.625, 7/8 = 0.875, 9/8 = 1.125, and 10/8 = 1.25. These might have something to do with the weights or springs inside of his wheels. Fun to speculate about, but if it don't lead to something to build it's just more idle speculation.

    1. Z is the 24th letter of the alphabet useid in 1600-1700s.. But much much more important Z can be written as 3 !! And therein lies the answer to more than this mystery!

    2. Also the 26 value of Z can be equal to 2 x 13 and 13 is an important number in the Bible and numerology and is a symbol for God. This could be another way Bessler tells his readers that the idea for his pm wheel was given to him by God.

      But, that 72 could also be 72 degrees which is inside angle at five corners of a pentagon. It could mean Bessler used a lever every 72 degrees to form a pentagon inside a wheel drum just like John says!

    4. Bessler's units of measurement in his drawings etc. were zolls and ells, and not inches and feet.

      Delete
    5. True. But who knows exactly what HE considered a "zoll" and an "ell" to be. It's generally believed that his Merseburg and Kassel wheel drums were both 12 feet in diameter. 12 feet = 144 inches and half of that, which was the radius of the drum, was 72 inches. 12 and 144 are numbers that Bessler, being into Bible prophecy and such, would have been attracted to and used in the construction of his wheels.

  2. John here you can see what the Freemasons have to say about it :-)

    The Giza height/width and angle can be found in another formula found and proven in MT. How to construct the Giza proportions is what they are bragging about in the picture.. The formula involves Pythagoras 3-4-5 and Platos Meno. That is why he show it to us fra the beginning of MT and on.. Finally about the Z. If you read MT you will see that the letter Z can have another appearance, namely "3". Z can normally without any comment be printed as 3. And when you discover that MT 5Z is the first place Bessler draws 2=Z, and you discover that the base formula to create Giza contains the angles 53 & 53 degrees at the zenith, you will appreciate that MT page.......5Z,53... can be written/read as .......53,53... etc.. so it goes on. So yes we are lead all the way back to Giza, but not exactly for the reasons you mention.. IMO And the Logo (identifying the secret) is and was The Square and Compass.. and here lies the secret ..I think :-) I know you would love to see this, and I would like to share. But sending a unfinished book over the Internet, I can't. But if our paths cross anytime soon..

  3. Bessler and his depiction of the A in so many places and angles point to it as a critical component capable of providing a key

    1. I've wondered why B. sometimes uses a regular letter A and other times an A with a crooked cross part. Just a mistake or for some purpose?

    2. In my experience he made no mistakes left uncorrected.

      I think in mt 83 those A letters with the crooked middles were just Bessler's way of indicating upward force applied by the ropes to the right side piston. Maybe to him the crooked part looked like a flexed springy strip of metal trying to push the legs of the A apart which had a pivot at their peak like a drafting compass? Anyway that machine or any variation of it will not work.

  4. You are on the right way, Gravittea. But even if you find the way, the solution will still be far away, believe me.
    Personally I hope to be on the right way (I am convinced , of course) but as long as the wheel does not turn, it remains a research path like so many others ;-)

    The "A" letter is one way to find "the" solution . It's an important clue to find the mecanism . The solution is more "visual" than we think. . .
    Good luck to all of you in your quest and , especially good recovery to Amy !
