My Blog About Johann Bessler (aka Orffyreus)
Now that the number one Bessler forum is back on line 🙏👍. I’m back too.
I’m posting these stats to show there is a lasting interest in this subject across the world, even if it is disregarded, not to say dismissed and derided by the educational institutions. I once gave a lecture and opened it with the question, “hands up anyone who believes a perpetual machine might be possible”, in hindsight it was far too open a question but it happened 25 years ago and people were more open minded about such things then. The audience were of mixed ages and education but a swift head count gave a surprisingly large number of “believers”, over a third. I’m not sure a similar question would elicit such a large percentage of “believers” these days.
This, it seems to me, is our biggest problem; these days the young minds seem closed to new or old ideas unless they are “trending” on the internet. Our field of research is regarded as “dead in the water” so to speak. If it hasn’t been solved in the last 300 years it must indeed, be impossible and they are therefore not interested. I don’t know the average age of Bessler researchers, but I get the distinct impression that it is much closer to my age (76) than say the twenties. This is not a subject that attracts young minds, which is shame given the urgent need for a technology so similar to the one we seek to reinvent.
So since I began this blog in February 2009, there have been:
Over 1581472 visitors. - I’ve published 694 posts. - There have been over 26303 comments.
Visitors have come from the following locations:-
United States 24%
United Kingdom. 10%
New Zealand. 4%
South Africa. 3%
I know there are visitors from several other large countries, such as China and Russia, but I assume they are included in the ‘other’s. Romania is a constant and frequent visitor, but they don’t show up outside the ‘other’s group.
Of course compared to the Besslerwheel forum, my stats are minuscule
