Johann Bessler’s Gravity-Enabled Electricity Generator 24/7

 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 observe the device on two occasions, 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.

After a number of years Karl decided that after so long it was time the inventor left 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 before the buyer was allowed to view the internal workings of the machine. But 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 77). 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 and 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 at 

Take a look at 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 posthumous 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.

You can order copies of the books from my website at 

Printed books direct from the printer can be obtained from here

Or from the top of the right side panel under the heading ‘Bessler’s Books’.
There are also links lower down on the right side panel.

As I often say, the solution to this device is needed now. Anything that might help cleanse the planet of pollution and help to reduce green house gas emissions, by providing a clean cheap alternative energy source should encouraged in its discovery and development to counter global warming.

  1. Hi John Collins, love reading about Bessler. I for one don't favor clues that much. I see them more of a snare, to be avoided as much as possible. Also the codes. Couldn't they just have been a mental exercise for him some thing to do, rather than any meaning full intent to show how the wheel worker----------------------Sam

  2. JB may have encoded his design into his written works to prove authorship should a dispute occur, or to potentially clear his name in the event he was arrested. Either would be a good reason to do so.

  3. I think you missed my point. I'll try again. One book was written in rhyme, 7,000 lines of it! Who would do that and why? It must have been just for some thing to do. What if the other book(s) with all of the codes was done for the same reason and have little, if any thing, to do with how the wheels worked--------------------------Sam

    1. "One book was written in rhyme, 7,000 lines of it! Who would do that and why?'

      Hmm...let me think now...how about a POET writing his autobiography and announcing his discovery of PM to the world?!

      "What if the other book(s) with all of the codes...have little, if any thing, to do with how the wheels worked"

      OTOH...what if those codes are the ONLY way to find the solution to Bessler's wheels? Ignoring them will then guarantee that it will NEVER be found. Can any serious Bessler researcher afford to take that risk? As Jim_Mich over at BWF used to say "Leave no stone unturned"!

    2. I use the words ‘codes’ and ‘clues’ because the information is hidden or disguised but his methods were numerous and deliberately so because he didn’t want to chance them being overlooked or ignored. Those two words have to cover a lot of information but it is all available to the determined researcher. I’m very busy combining writing a full account of my own discoveries while still trying to complete my move into our new/old house. I have wished that there was someone nearbye who would do my many drawings for me, but there isn’t so I just have to do my best with MS paint.

      Despite my misgivings I’m also re-establishing my workshop so that I can, after all, build my version of Bessler’s wheel according to the information I have managed to extract so far.

    3. @ JC. Sounds like you've decided to get back to "business as usual" again. Does that also mean you won't be revealing all of your secret clues before the end of THIS year, as you previously promised to do only a few blogs ago, but again only AFTER you finally make a working wheel to "prove" they work? If you actually need to do that, then it will make it look like you really don't have much confidence in them.

    4. That’s a fair question anon 10:59. As soon as I can I shall be building my new wheel and I think it won’t take long, with some intervals where I have to attend to my other half’s calls on my time, so maybe a few weeks. This is definitely my last attempt, then I’ll share what I know including some drawings, regardless of whether it works. I nearly stopped any attempt to build again, but my family persuaded me to have one more go, before giving up.

    5. It's nice that you have your family's support. My family considers my wheel research as an excuse for me to avoid getting any work done around here and reducing the length of the long "to do" list that THEY made up for me!

    6. Well I think it’s more a case of humouring me, although I will say that one of my granddaughters, the famous Amy E pohl named her dog, a Hungarian Vizsla, ‘Bessler’, because she is my chief supporter in my family. You can google her and also look for her under famous birthdays?

      Yes and I'm wondering if Ken B will still be continuing his tradition of releasing a new Bessler video on that day to celebrate what he considers to be a holiday. I guess it is sort of a special day. The one in 1712 when a genuine working pm wheel was first publicly demonstrated. I wish I had a time machine and could travel back to see it all for myself.

      Btw. This coming June 6th, 2022 is on a Monday and so was June 6th of 1712 according to this website:

      https://www.dayoftheweek.org/?m=June&d=6&y=1712&go=Go

      There's only a 1 in 7 chance of that happening. If SoS reads this comment, he's going to flip out over that considering how lucky he thinks the number 7 is!

    10. In Bessler’s Germany, the Julian calendar was only superseded by the Gregorian calendar in 1700 and the abbreviation N/S or O/S was added after the date in all letters of the time (New Style or Old Style) and this was continued for many years. In the same way that we in the UK who were brought up with imperial measurements, ie, pounds, shillings and pence and inches, yards and miles etc, continue to use the old measures, so too those who lived through the calendar change in Germany also continued to use the old dates, unless writing. I think Bessler might have considered his first Exhibition to have occurred on Friday 6th June 1712.

    11. Thanks to anon 23:04 and JC for those two days of the week, either Monday NS or Friday OS using either the Gregorian or earlier Julian calendar, that the 6/6/1712 exhibition of B's Gera wheel would have taken place on.

      Actually, I would have "flipped out" more if the day of B's first exhibition in either calendar had been on a Saturday since, in Judeochristianity, that day, the "Sabbath", is considered to be the last or 7th day of the week when God decided to rest after his creation of the world and all the life on it during the first six days.

      However, I do think that the upcoming 310th anniversary of the Gera exhibition on a Monday is important for other reasons. Monday means "Moon's day" and is named after Earth's Moon. Five of the seven days of our current week were named by the ancient Babylonians thousands of years ago and they were the ones who decided we would have 7 days in a week.

      One astrology site I found says that the "Moon is associated with the functionality of mind. It is believed that the moon controls the power of mind and versatility. It is also believed to provide power of meditation, concentration and resistance against cold diseases."

      Here is a Moon phase calendar for June, 2022. The Moon is currently a New Moon at the end of May and the next full Moon isn't until Tuesday, June 14th. On Monday, June 6th, the Moon's phase will be almost a half Moon and, night after night, will be gradually "waxing" or increasing toward the full Moon phase on the 14th.

      https://i2.wp.com/oc.tutiempo.net/share-fases/EN/20/06-2022-N.png

      Although the Moon's influence on people isn't as powerful as it is during the three nights of a full Moon, I still think this coming Monday, 6/6/2022 will be a good time for one to be thinking about his various projects especially with regard to B's wheels.

      But, one's mental abilities will be getting their maximum boost from our Moon on Tuesday, June 14th. Notice that this date is a multiple of 7! I consider all days of a month that are multiples of 7 such as 7, 14, 21, and 28, to be particularly lucky. I will only buy lottery tickets on those days for maximum luck. This coming Tuesday, June 14th would be an excellent time to begin construction of a new wheel or to make a major change to a previous one that does not work. If one still uses a paper wall calendar, then consider marking that date to begin your project.

    12. Thank you SoS. Interesting post. I hope to be restarting my final build on that day. Your post about the number 7 is interesting, I’m not sure if mentioned this before, but I was 77 years of age on 5th February this year, so 5 and 2 = 7. Three 7s perhaps luck will be present?

  4. In which book is there information about the strange dream he had ? is it apolegetica or another book. Whichever one it is I will get it.

    1. It's in AP, but is only briefly mentioned. We don't know exactly what he dreamed about:

      "I had a rare dream, which gave me strength, happiness, air and space. For weeks I forgot the outside world and concentrated on my innermost self. Soon I was free of cares and greatly comforted by a new enlightenment. God had sent Joy after sorrow. After barreness, the finest silk was being spun."

      However, if you haven't yet read it, then you should definitely obtain JC's translation of AP. Many feel it contains more clues than DT despite being written as a long German poem that JC had to have translated into English prose.

  6. A recent account on the history and practicality of PM can be found at Perpetual Motion Machines, Finance & Fraud — Investor Amnesia (in stark ignorance of Bessler’s works)

    In contrast, Bessler’s works from 310 years ago, remains stalwart that PM is seemingly possible.
    You only need to look at the motion of the planets, and the atom to concur with such practicality.

    The only practical opposition (to Bessler’s gravity wheel) has been the runaway financing of the combustion engine (a firepower driven wheel).
    See (2) António Guterres on Twitter: "While people suffer from high prices at the pump, the oil & gas industry is raking in billions from a distorted market. Every minute, coal, oil & gas receive $11M in subsidies. Governments must shift subsidies away from fossil fuels to protect the poor & most vulnerable people." / Twitter)
    Without question, the combustion engine works in direct accordance with the laws of thermodynamics.

    And, while the second law of thermodynamics is commonly raised to discount the possibility of PM it should not be considered a roadblock to arguing the existence and practicality of PM.
    Allow me to elaborate.

    Gravitational Energy is the most plentiful and highest order energy present in the Universe because it is not subject to transformation by entropy (that accords with the 2nd law of thermodynamics, for which entropy is ever-increasing) as is the case with “all” known lower order energies such as nuclear, solar, wind, wave, and combustion. Instead of entropy (the tendency for decay into disorder) we understand gravity to accord with syntropy (the tendency to retain order) which in turn (pardon the pun) governs the perpetuity of so many natural systems, each limited only by the physical integrity (wear and tear) of its constituent parts.

    This explanation is why John’s works, irrespective of the practicality of his yet to be reported findings, and also that of the aspiring perpetuum mobilist must remain steadfast until such time the truth behind Bessler’s works are fully brought to light.

    1. The article Yuri mentions about pm is here:

    2. Thanks for your interesting comment Yuri. Your description of Gravitational Energy as being unaffected by entropy provided a different viewpoint to the one we usually consider. Although we know about entropy we tend to try and find ways to use gravity to drive our PM attempts by treating it as an unending force, which it is, but your description indicates that it is more than that, it doesn’t diminish regardless of the amount of work it does.

      I know what I mean, but it’s difficult to put into words!

    3. How do we know that Keely really was a fraud? Because we read it in some encyclopedia article written by an "expert"?

      Maybe after he died at age 62, Big Oil agents secretly went into Keely's lab and removed his revolutionary "etheric triune force generator" and then planted a junk part device, compressed air tank, pipes, and hidden switch operated valves behind to make it look like his demonstrations were all hoaxed.

      If Bessler had left an working wheel behind in his workshop after he died at age 65, the Big Coal of his day could have sent their agents in at night to remove it and leave a pile of junk behind for his widow to find after she gained entry through the main door. As a result everyone afterwards also says his demonstrations were all hoaxed.

      Interesting how both men died in their 60's. Keely by pneumonia that he "mysteriously" caught and Bessler by an "accident". FAWK, both could have been assassinated!

      We should keep in mind that there are always TWO histories about any event: the "official" history and the REAL history. I think we only very rarely get the real history. The official histories are the ones that the capitalists of every age want us to see and believe because those are the ones that are the most profitable for THEM when they are accepted as being genuine.

      Anyone who actually develops a working free energy machine nowadays should be prepared to have the exact same thing happen to it and him.

  7. Thought you might like to know I have a simulation running so far it seems to be a permanently off balance with only two mechanisms attached. It will not stop moving even when I try to stop one mechanism or the other. It keeps on trying to balance but it cannot the geometry will not allow it. Also you might like to know it speeds up then slows down then speeds up again never ceasing very funny it looks like it gets frustrated and speeds up then gets tired and slows down only to do it all over again. I do understand why Bessler added pendulums to govern and stabilize it many years ago I experimented with a design that did the same behavior only that wasn't a simulation now I understand back then I didn't have the opportunity to study it due to its flying apart however now I understand it! I have one more add-on to make that should even out the power and directed to Only One Direction at a time just thought you might like to know there is no doubt in my mind that fessler did what he said he did and that he rediscovered it from past history because I've noticed the geometry revered in many cultures in history

    3. Hey, anons 10:31 and 23:43, don't expect SG to ever give you any useful information about the working simulation that he claims to have. That's not the reason he's mentioning it here after leaving this blog in a snit months ago when JC deleted some of his comments. It's just a "bright, shiny object" that he will periodically dangle in front of everyone's eyes. Its real purpose is to act as bait to get him attention and praise and you guys have already provided him with a little. But he wants much more than that.

      In the past he tried to get attention and praise here by saying he knew exactly how B's wheels worked from various esoteric writings and artwork that he had studied and that only he really understood. But, despite many requests he never gave any details and eventually no one cared about his claims anymore. So, now he's back and trying a new approach. Now he has a WORKING simulation! Even JC does not have that! So that must mean SG's knowledge of B's wheels is now SUPERIOR to that of JC! Wow!

      He wants any newbie followers of these blogs who are unaware of his past comments on them to beg him for details about his alleged working simulation. But they will never be delivered no matter how much they beg him or stroke his ego. Watch and see what happens in the coming weeks.
