Could This Be the Solution to Global Warming?

A Potential Solution to Climate Change.

We are being bombarded with news of natural disasters from all around the globe; record high temperatures, forest fires, floods, melting icecaps, hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes.  All of these are happening with increasing frequency and intensity.  The cause is said be global warming.  This is attributed to the greenhouse effect and the blame for that is laid firmly at the burning of fossil fuels for electricity, heat, and transportation.

More often and louder is the clamour for something to be done on a global scale.  Everyone seems to be in agreement, we need a way of producing cheap,  clean energy but what? I won’t cover the multitude of ideas and methods being used or suggested - in my opinion these are all temporary or location critical measures which don’t really alleviate the problem. 

I’ve had this blog since 2009 and I’ve suggested that Bessler’s wheel could provide a source of cheap, clean, low tech energy in at least a dozen blogs over the years but out there in the real world, no one ever takes any notice!  Why? Because they have been taught that his machine was impossible and therefore must have been a fraud. 

There is plenty of excellent evidence that it was genuine which is why thousands of individuals all over the world are striving to duplicate his machine.  This device could generate electricity using just the force of gravity, but of course without a working model to prove it, it is dismissed as wild fantasy, and a chance to start to combat the effects of global warming missed.

But just in case someone, somewhere happens to chance upon this blog and decides to find out more about Johann Bessler, aka Orffyreus, I’m repeating the story of his machine below.  Maybe it might attract the attention of an open-minded researcher who has the backing of an engineering facility. I would be amazed if that happened, but let’s face it; it has to happen some time, and the sooner the better.

In the mean time we lone amateurs continue to experiment, analyse and investigate, building our models on a shoestring, hoping for success, while the world around us continues to burn, flood and shake it’s foundations.

So here is the story of Johann Bessler’s amazing machine.

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, who was able to examine the device, 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 Karlshafen. 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.

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 76).  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.

Not long after I was able to read the English translations of his books, I became convinced that Bessler had embedded a number of clues in his books.  These took the form of hints in the text, but also in a number of drawings he published.  Subsequently I found suggestions by the author that studying his books would reveal more information about his wheel.

For some ideas about Bessler’s code why not visit my web sites or see my work on his “Declaration of Faith at

Also please view my video at
It gives a brief account both the legend and some more detail about some of the codes.

The problem of obtaining a fair reward for all his hard work 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 posthumus acknowledgement was preferable to being robbed of his secret while he yet lived.
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 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 use them in his planned school for apprentices.

  1. Global warming is hoax;just another excuse for the communist cabal to control the free man.Weather extreem might be alleviated if laws were passed to grow more trees.The level of Co2 should be maintained for fauna to flourish, it has negligible affect on global warming, that is due to the solar cycle.

    1. There is truth in what you say Trevor. The left is amateurish at everything they say and do, and politicize everything. They can no longer be trusted to look out for the common working person in this country. That said, there are global weather changes happening, but whether this is man made I think, is beyond our scientific knowledge. We can't say where it's going to rain, other than by using computer models, but yet we know beyond a doubt that our actions are causing weather patterns around the globe to shift. Government backed scientists know who signs their grant checks so they will be the last to disagree with the establishment, and the remaining scientists that are skeptical have their viewpoints kept out of the press. The Democrats have taken their playbook directly from the Nazi's and communists and are using those techniques to their advantage. I am encouraged that we are now seeing signs that the people are beginning to second guess their antics. We are one vote away from ending their tyranny, if only until the next catastrophic event they concoct. The other thing to remember is their followers are in it 100% for the handouts so you can expect to hear their whining's regardless.

    2. I used to argue that climate change was due to variations in the Sun’s outout and no human actions. Here are quotes from NASA on climate change.

      “ Earth’s climate has been stable for the past 12,000 years. This stability has been crucial for the development of modern civilization.

      • A stable climate enabled humans to pursue agriculture, domesticate animals, settle down and develop culture.

      • Space observations, combined with archaeology and climate science, give us clues as to how ancient civilizations, like that of the Mayans and the Old Kingdom of Egypt, collapsed.

      • Climate change (drought in particular) has been at least partly responsible for the rise and fall of many ancient civilizations.

      • Our way of life depends on a stable climate. Faced with a changing climate, we must learn the lessons of past collapsed civilizations and adapt”.

      Surely those past climate changes couldn’t halve been due to human actions, so perhaps it was variations in the sun’s output!


    3. What ever the cause, we still need cheap clean energy.


    4. Excellent report!


  2. Yes we do need perpetual motion energy that the ultimate.

  3. Yes we need the wheel to use the energy that is already at our disposal

  4. Yes yes the climate is changing but I won't accept the reasons given by scientists on the government payroll. The US government is just too political and too corrupt now.

    Up front costs for wind power is too expensive and produces too little power for that investment. Solar power is great but lots of toxic waste is produced in their manufacturing. The Bessler Wheel is the only choice that makes economic and ecological sense.

    1. Agreed with everything you’ve said anon 18.34

    I hope one of the links below will work for you. About 2:05 minutes into the video there are two girls forcing a wheel cage to rotate by swinging to the descending side (something like a pendulum swing). It might give you some insight.

  6. AA 19:52, I've tried to accesses links like this before but, can never get them copied exactly right-------------------Sam

    1. Those are Facebook links. At work, not signed into Facebook, the second link works for me. The first does not. You could also Google "This Kiddo Catches Some Serious Air!" to see if something comes up. The videos are done by a group called "People are Awesome". I hope you can get to the video, I think you would find the rolling cage interesting.


The Solution Lies within the Existing Documents.

We should return to the task in hand and leave aside the dubious benefits of Remote Viewing, we need to trust only what we know.  We can onl...
