  Deva Ramananda's outstanding work, both from the esoteric and physical points of view, requires me, as we say here, "to put off my turban" underneath his feet. I haven't come across works of any single person who has presented such an all-embracing portrait of the Orffyreus and his perpetual motion machines that is grounded in scientific facts as well as esoteric concepts, especially, found in 'Wisdom of Vedas' .  

His death is a irreparable loss to us, it would be my great tribute to him to publish all his literary works as early as possible. I beg your pardon for expressing emotions, but I am really very much impressed.

Rediscovering Vedic Code of Perpetual Motion

Deva Ramananda has cautioned the young generation not to blindly ape the physicist and his text books and instead focus on perpetual motion and work towards inventing and developing perpetual motion, Especially, gravity perpetual motion.

Perpetual motion is not just a design. It is a sublime philosophy, a way of life to generate free power and live in harmony with nature. Deva Ramananda said that it is through the perpetual motion that the most pressing problems of humanity could be solved and humanity united together. Perpetual motion being the replica of the universe can bind humanity; and so it is much more than just a means for generating unlimited energy.

Most profound principles relating to working of the universe, human existence and virtually every sphere of human activity were given expression to, through perpetual motion by Vedic sages. Vedic perpetual motion perfectly depicted the underlying principles on which universe operates; and it also demonstrates the principle of harmony and synergy on which social order must be based on. A perpetual motion inventor, therefore, understands the world better than the physicists and most others", he said.

Deva Ramananda, who is also the founder of ZERO, said that it is a matter of pride and joy that perpetual motion inventors have embarked on different designs of perpetual motion. Perpetual motion has remained the crowning glory of Indian heritage, for thousands of years.

Deva Ramananda said, "If I was asked what the greatest treasure which India possesses is and what is her finest heritage, I would answer quickly - it is the Perpetual motion and all that it contains"

"But such is the infelicity and imhappy disposition of the human mind in the course of invention that it first distrusts and then despises itself: first will not believe that any such thing can be found out; and when it is found out, cannot understand how the world should have missed it so long."
Francis Bacon -Novum Organum, Chap. CX.
The title page of Bacon's book "The New Atlantis" shows the motto: Tempore patet occulta veritas, "In Time hidden truth shall be revealed." Time is not far when anyone among us would reinvent Orffyreus Wheel to reveal the truth of perpetual motion as well as the fact that Orffyreus was a genuine outstanding inventor.Just have a look at the "motto" shown below.

Orffyreus Demonstrates his Perpetual Motion Wheel at Merseberg.


Today those who know Orffyreus and understand his invention; and philosophy are very few, and on this account, his honor is still greater. Truly the treatment which Orffyreus has received from scientist and historians of science and technology confirms the weakness of human mind which is not free from prejudice,bigotry and ignorance to suppress any truth, for their vested interests only.


Wandering Orffyreus
Wandering Orffyreus

Certainly, his journey of perpetual motion had been difficult, even torturous. World saw him as an embittered wanderer who died along with his secret of perpetual motion machine.Towards end of his life Orffyreus wrote: “I lack strength and will, through hunger, grief, frost and chill, since for a long time..…. Indeed, I have often had only dry bread to eat and water to drink. However, at last, thank God, I have had the good luck to finish preparing the model of perpetual motion which was commissioned from England. ".

Let us now praise famous Men

1  Let us now sing the praises of famous men, our ancestors in their generations.
2  The Lord apportioned to them great glory, his majesty from the beginning.
3  There were those who ruled in their kingdoms, and made a name for themselves by their valor; those who gave counsel because they were intelligent; those who spoke in prophetic oracles;
4  those who led the people by their counsels and by their knowledge of the people's lore; they were wise in their words of instruction;
5  those who composed musical tunes, or put verses in writing;
6  rich men endowed with resources, living peacefully in their homes- 7  all these were honored in their generations, and were the pride of their times.
8  Some of them have left behind a name, so that others declare their praise.
9  But of others there is no memory; they have perished as though they had never existed; they have become as though they had never been born, they and their children after them.
10  But these also were godly men, whose righteous deeds have not been forgotten;
11  their wealth will remain with their descendants, and their inheritance with their children's children.
12  Their descendants stand by the covenants; their children also, for their sake.
13  Their offspring will continue forever, and their glory will never be blotted out.
14 Their bodies are buried in peace, but their name lives on generation after generation.
15  The assembly declares their wisdom, and the congregation proclaims their praise.

and our fathers that beget us.


The Lord hath wrought great glory by them through his great power from the beginning.


Such as did bear rule in their kingdoms,

men renowned for their power,

giving counsel by their understanding,

and declaring prophecies:


Leaders of the people by their counsels,

and by their knowledge of learning

meet for the people, wise and eloquent

are their instructions:


Such as found out musical tunes,

and recited verses in writing:


Rich men furnished with ability,

living peaceably in their habitations:


All these were honoured in their generations, and were the glory of their times.


There be of them, that have left a name

behind them, that their praises might be reported.


And some there be, which have no memorial;who are perished, as though they had never been; and are become as though they had never been born; and their children after them.


But these were merciful men,

whose righteousness hath not been forgotten. 


With their seed shall continually remain

a good inheritance, and their children are

within the covenant.


Their seed standeth fast,

and their children for their sakes.


Their seed shall remain for ever,

and their glory shall not be blotted out.


Their bodies are buried in peace;

but their name liveth for evermore.


The people will tell of their wisdom,

and the congregation will shew forth their praise.


The Inventor of
Perpetual Motion

Bessler claimed he had succeeded in making "a dead material not only move itself, but lift weights and perform work even the most profound mathematicians and the most learned people have continually fallen into error.".

                        The text -"Let us now praise famous men" quoted in above frame is taken from the famous hymn "Ecclesiasticus 44:1-15(Sirach)sung in the praise and honour of our ancestors, especially holy fathers- Enoch, Noe, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It is our common tradition to praise popular people,nothing uncommon in it however, verse 9 of the hymn has a strong twist in favor of our unsung hero when it says:

"And some there be, which have no memorial;who are perished, as though they had never been; and are become as though they had never been born."

Especially, these lines   reminds me Orffyreus ( 1680 1681*- 1745 ), the inventor of perpetual motion machine. His original name was Johann Ernst Elias Bessler but later he adopted his name as Orffyreus.   Unfortunately, he is almost forgotten today. We often honor famous people but many inventors like him, unsung and anonymous were   in no way less great than those whom we remember a lot and often raise memorials in their praise. We do not have to study the history of technology very long to be haunted by countless inventors like Orffyreus who are forgotten with no memorial. For example, we do not know the inventors of wheel, windmill, water wheel, and wheelbarrow.  Undeniably, Orffyreus nevertheless do live forever in our memory and heart like many other anonymous inventors.

Orffyreus( 1680 1681-1745)

Your input is what keeps this website improving with time!Thanks to David Butler, a professional violinist for providing correct information about the birth year of Orffyreus as 1681 and not 1680 that was erroneously mentioned by this website before. In his recent e mail David Butler wrote: "Johann Bessler and his wheel is at this time only known, or of interest, to a few and I discovered him quite by chance. His correct birth year and date of baptism are no secret for they are quoted on the french, german and polish wikipedia sites about him. (Not the english site, which is odd!) Further, John Collins, who has researched Bessler in Germany and viewed Bessler's baptism register, states he was born in 1681 and baptized on May 6th. Please see Bessler star signs forum posted on Monday, June 13th, 2005 at 3.25pm. Strangely, Collins' biography just says 1680-1681. Perhaps he wrote the book after viewing the register!? You could be the first English Orffyreus site to show the correct year!".

A Brief Overview of the Life of Orffyreus as an Inventor

Today those who know Orffyreus and understand his invention; and philosophy are very few, and on this account, his honor is still greater.   Like Orffyreus many other inventors of the overbalancing wheel have had the same doom, they have gone into oblivion and we need to do a lot to bring back the glory they deserve. If Orffyreus is anonymous or forbidden today, he wasn't so around  1711 or later when he was at the zenit of his inventive career. Orffyreus could have been knighted. He could have been buried in Royal Graveyard. His destiny chose none of that. But he'd set the foundations of perpetual motion. He'd fathered the perpetual motion.  Germany must be proud of the fact that he was native of it. Orffyreus (1681- 1745),17 - 18thcentury’s German inventor of perpetual motion machine, holds an eerie fascination to me. So today, I will tell you true story of this German inventor who sold his soul for perpetual motion.  In an odd way, his whole life revolved around perpetual motion.  Orffyreus was the one of the rare and best inventor of perpetual motion the world has ever had. His work on perpetual motion machine is unparalleled by any one either before or since. Orffyreus was a man of wide-ranging abilities and interests and, at one stage in his career; he earned his living as physician.  He was also considered as a great mechanical engineer. He worked for Count Karl, Landgrave of Hesse Cassel   as councilor and general engineer.


The word perpetual motion and Councilor Orffyreus are inseparable. He was an eager student of the 'Hidden Mysteries of Nature and Science.'  Guided by his intuitive feeling for perpetual motion, habit of using his intelligence to the utmost, a deepened common sense, reliance first and then on the observation and experiments, this remarkable man conceived, invented, and demonstrated a number of perpetual motion machines   to renowned man of science at many towns in Germany.  His last and the largest machine was demonstrated   at the castle of the Weissenstein in 1717.  Board of examiners was convinced that his machine was a true form of perpetual motion. Unfortunately for many reasons, his claim as an inventor of perpetual motion machine   has been put aside and thrown to the dust bins of history along with all other hoaxes frauds, mysteries and fakers whose lives occupy the archives of many a dusty shelf in the museums through out the world.  History has wrongly convicted a genuine inventor and an innocent man.  All of the evidence about his machine faithfully recorded in his time support the conclusion that Orffyreus was a genuine inventor who solved the riddle of the perpetual motion machine about 300 years ago, but his personal character has intensified the doubts, his contemporaries did not realize the full importance and value of the invention. “Orffyreus’ work on his perpetual motion machine could have considerably extended our horizons in physics - and in technology too. But at this particular crossroads, mankind took a wrong turn..” says  George Egely, the author of the  book “Forbidden Invention”


Perpetual motion is like a beautiful woman.  No matter cautious and careful she may remain most of the time, she is likely to get into the trouble at any time for no fault of her own but  only because she was born beautiful by Nature. Wicked and malicious man would try to possess her using all illegal means.  Similarly, perpetual motion is type of invention which itself is source of trouble for its inventor, as it would cause envy, antagonism, and hostility among the people.  Perpetual motion machine is likely to mushroom hundreds of opponents who would like to possess secret of its working mechanism by hook or crook.  We know any time a big fish can eat little one and destroy all her dreams- this is law of nature.  Orffyreus’ story illustrates the same point.

Orffyreus' genius was one of the manifestations of the age's vigour and drew nourishment from its extraordinary fertility. Orffyreus was a God sent member of that group of architects who had a dream of constructing the framework of our material civilization setting the stage for the drama of modern life based on free energy and power from nothing. Orffyreus came at the scene to set a revolution in mechanics about the same time when 75 years old Newton had established himself as a big authority in mechanics.  It is intriguing to see that Newton’s laws of motion stand contrary to perpetual motion.  It was the time when various concepts of mechanics were still in process of development.  Today we have well defined concepts of energy, momentum, work and power, but these terms and concepts either didn’t come into existence or were poorly defined at the time when Orffyreus built and demonstrated his wheels. There was no uniform agreement among the scientist over these concepts and with different notions; they used different terms like impetus, vis viva etc to define quantitative aspects of motion. In Orffyreus times, steam engine was also in process of improvements. He was a pole apart from the view which eminent scientist held in his time, both in his conception of perpetual motion and in his conception of the means to achieve it.  Scientist in Orffyreus’ time had an opportunity to learn perpetual motion from   him but he never disclosed the secret to anyone without getting his reward. With development of steam engine, though science claimed to take shape as the companion of technology, without perpetual motion it was always lame. Later, by rejecting perpetual motion and promoting laws of thermodynamics, science fell into a grave error!


No man in the history took a more prominent part in the discovery of perpetual motion machine than did great Orffyreus. One cannot help feeling that man like him is born once in many centuries.  Indeed, they come to fulfill a specific mission. To Orffyreus making new designs of the machines was not just a hobby, but also a passion.  He was an extraordinary person, in fact, a genius who worked hard and devoted his whole life to the noble cause of perpetual motion, just for the love of it and love for understanding the Nature and its great secrets.  His work makes it clear that his genius was no pretense. He produced a whole set of directional and non-directional perpetual motion wheels. He built several "perpetual motion machine" that ran on gravity. His musical inventions included an organ.


Orffyreus called himself a physician and sometimes a mechanic. He went on building and building but his mind was taking him where no inventor had gone before. He was drawn to the new source of power- gravity. He tried hard to obtain perpetual motion. Only after many many false starts and ineffectual attempts, he succeeded in his difficult venture. Bessler claimed he had succeeded in making "a dead material not only move itself, but lift weights and perform work even the most profound mathematicians and the most learned people have continually fallen into error". He built several wheels and demonstrated them at several places in Germany. In his life time everywhere examiners wanted to see his theory of perpetual motion machine. They wanted it brought down to the hard earth. But Orffyreus was wise enough not to sell the great secret just for nothing. Orffyreus engine violated all the conventions of the great contemporary engineers. He had a mind larger than life and brain greater than scientist. And the deep joy he gained from perpetual motion was unparalleled. His overbalancing wheel represents a last breath of the soaring medieval imagination. The German scientist and philosopher Leibniz became his friend. ("Qrffyreus est the mes amis"(Wedge, S.16).  He had touched Leibniz’s heart and head. To save his talents, he brought him to Count Karl, Landgrave of Hesse cassel. He was esteemed and rewarded by Karl, Landgrave of Hesse Caseel., but contemporary scientist were  too preoccupied with theoretical  questions on perpetual motion to make much use of his profound work on perpetual motion during his lifetime. Een Leibniz himself couldn’t believe that perpetual motion is possible. Orffyreus lived a turbulent life at many places in Germany, deeply admired by a few able scientists like Leibniz but also making no immediate impress on Isaac Newton commensurate with his genius. Orffyreus had a tragic career.  His ambitions could not be realized.  His enemy ridiculed him and considered him as a fraud. He seems to have been unaffected by this. He was aware of the significance of what he had done and was content to let posterity appraise him.


Orffyreus was the first man who realized friction is not the first and any serious problem a perpetual motion machine designer has to face. He was the first to demonstrate that even in presence of the friction perpetual motion machine can do all useful work like raising weights and water from deep mines, bellowing furnaces, grinding grains and doing all milling without feeding on any type of force.  He proved that a concoction of motions of gears, weights, and linkages could be cleverly arranged to constitute perpetual motion.  He did not forget to emphasize the fact that the entire mechanism that rotates is indeed very simple.  By analysis of machine motions, he created a mechanics, which aimed at free power without regard to the expenditure of forces that drive them.

After he invented his perpetual motion machine, Orffyreus spent major part of his life in brooding over his bargain and financial troubles. When he was 31 he dreamed to petition to gain the exclusive rights to a gravity-powered wagon. He and his plans based on perpetual motion mirrored the imagination of the Industrial Revolution but everything failed. His enemies called him insane for his achievements, they alleged him perpetually so Orffyreus set about to vindicate himself by building larger versions of perpetual motion machines.  As his personality emerges from the shadows, it reveals qualities we have not seen before in the best inventive minds. Orffyreus was a touchy person.  In  1715 while he was struggling to establish his invention with a suitable reward, he said: “Never did I hear a word of praise, though I was criticized from all directions. But I never changed, never once wavered, because a single word could have betrayed my wondrous achievement.” He'd genuinely loved the people around him and expected a reward from them, but instead he was deserted for no fault of him, people were indeed very ungrateful to him for what   he had given to the world. “ I have often had only dry bread to eat and water to drink.” complained Orffyreus in the last days of his life.  His fellowman saw him dieing in chill, they saw him hungry and crying for bread but no one came to help. He died with his secret and shattered dreams. Beyond that -- what more could anyone suffer!

History Convicts a Great Inventor

In his lifetime, Orffyreus confronted many enemies.In present time also the treatment handed out to Orffyreus by the historians is one of the worst examples of prejudice. It is not fair; and often marked by injustice, partiality, or deception. It is deplorable that much nonsense; still exist about the evaluation of Orffyreus; rare work. There is no end to the misinterpretations and misapplications of working of Orffyreus wheel and the man himself. Take for examples his 141 drawings.  Those who consider him as a charlatan are under wrong impression that he did this in order to render his invention somewhat flexible, so that it could be adapted or twisted to fit almost any real design of perpetual motion machine that would be designed in future. Later in this section, I will endeavor to illustrate that his series of 141 drawings depicts the whole story of his struggle to achieve perpetual motion.

For another instance, W.J.G. Ord-Hume, author of the book: "Perpetual Motion,  The History of an Obsession"  considers Orffyreus wonderful invention as nothing but trickery.To discredit Orffyreus many historians falsely argue but their arguments only prove their selfish wickedness, foolishness, and ignorance on the subject. After all, deep truths are often embarrassing and cruel as they may shatter current ideology; therefore to find a way to open a dialogue for reasonable discourse on Orffyreus and his perpetual motion is always difficult when one has no direct experience of perpetual motion. Remarks such as Orffyreus was an eccentric turn, that he developed a quarrelsome disposition and became bitter and melancholy may be true to some extent but hold no valid ground to undermine his discovery. With all his faults, I admire and respect him for his invention.Scientists like Newton, Gravesande, Rulers, and other influential contemporaries of Orffyreus who had witnessed marvelous performance of his perpetual motion if had lent their full support to Orffyreus, humanity would have possessed perpetual motion machine and benefited from it right from 1717.It is not difficult to imagine that further advances made after then would have prevented plundering the mother earth for sources of energy and thus saving the environment. Even after a lapse of more than 280 years, no man has been able to reinvent perpetual motion yet.It is strange that in spite of valuable evidence faithfully recorded by great men of science, entire work of Orffyreus has largely been disbelieved and remained undiscovered for more than 280 years.

Orffyreus own book " Triumphans Perpetuum Mobile Orffyreanum ............” gives us complete account of his work on perpetual motion. Henry Dirks work " Perpetual mobile  " has served as an important source. 


 Collin’s researches on Orffyreus, published in the form of his book entitled “Perpetual Motion: An Ancient Mystery Solved?” (1997) have largely acquainted people with Orffyreus work and helped them to see the truth. Collin’s work is most authentic and eye opener to disbelievers. He has explored the archives thoroughly and devoted more than 10 years of hard work for researching Orffyreus case. A large audience received Collin’s book with great enthusiasm. Since then, many have speculated to reconstruct Orffyreus machine but all in vein. So far, no one succeeded to build Orffyreus’ wonderful machinery again.

This website on Orffyreus and his perpetual motion attempts to bring out real issues that were not explained before. It is hoped that because of John Collins’ research efforts, the studies of Dr. Ramesh Menaria and other Orffyreus’ enthusiast, all trace of or hint of deception about Orffyreus’ wheel will be removed. All things considered, Orffyreus was a remarkably a great inventor but world has forgotten him. We may not all adopt his conclusions, but his manner of seeking the truth, his self-sacrifice in its pursuit, and his purity of life, are beacons which all can see, and which convey a definite lesson to every one who will open his eyes to see his life and work.


We must be Cautious in Deciphering his Secret Codes of Perpetual Motion
for Getting Unlimited Power

Imagination and discovery, stimulated by intuition and creativity, confirmed by reason, demonstration of experiment, and experience amidst controversy and competition – these are the ingredients of Orffyrus’ perpetual motion journey. Orffyreus shows us how his inspiring dream makes him genius in his attempts to build perpetual motion wheels. There is so much beauty and mystery in Orffyreus’ life and his works that it inspired C. Zumben, upper mining inspector in Hessen to write a praise poem on Orffyreus.

Records of the teachings of Orffyreus have survived which give clues to some of the simpler parts of his mechanical philosophy. The major secrets were never committed to writing. He never wanted to divulge his secrets to the profane, the result being that when death sealed his lips the arcane died with him. Concerning the secret significance of codes there has been much speculation. Though many interesting points have been made, it may be safely said that with the death of Orffyreus the great key to perpetual motion was lost. For nearly 280 years scholars of all nations have attempted to unravel the Orffyrean skein, but apparently none has been successful.

There is still much uncertainty about facts of working mechanism of his perpetual motion; this view is shared by all true students of the subject. It proves conclusively that it is unwise to make definite statements founded on the indefinite and fragmentary information available concerning the Orffyrean system of mechanical arts. The material which follows represents an effort to collect a few salient points from the scattered records preserved by Orffyreus and others who have since contacted his philosophy. Any attempt at scientific moralizing of Orffyreus journey leads us to conclude that scientific knowledge is hardly absolute. It is continually both created and discovered – a living dyad which for creation relies on epiphany, accident, and inspiration; whereas for discovery it relies on ingenuity”, trial and error, and precision.

Many inventors are indeed convinced that Orffyreus’ perpetual motion is practical, but they just can't get their head around the fact that it's very simple and follows the laws of Nature, that govern celestial mechanics, especially. Many inventors have invented devices which they developed by claiming to have improved upon the works of previous inventors. Some of the inventors have devised Over-balancing wheel just reading only one or two books on perpetual motion including Orffyreus’ books and taking the metaphorical parts of the Apologia Poetica literally. From reading Apologia Poetica or decoding his MT secrets, they continue to invent complicated piece of perpetual motion machines, which are far away from the actions of Nature, and set about doing all kinds of fruitless experiments. They obviously get nowhere, and then decide to tell everyone else how to go wrong too. They’re happy to deceive others and pretend they're important.

A further problem is that not all books on perpetual motion are written by people who understand perpetual motion. Since the vast majority of people have no understanding of it, they can't tell the true perpetual motionists from the fakes. What makes this even worse is when real perpetual motionist like Orffyreus himself writes lies and deliberately misleads the unworthy reader, at the same time, prospective inventor of perpetual motion also gets misguided who is really sincere in his quest. So before the beginner can even start trying to interpret his writings, he has to try to work out which ones are honest and which are not. This is too difficult to determine, at least only extraordinary persons have no problem with it.

It is very easy to tell if a procedure to construct Orffyreus wheel is true or not, you just ask yourself the following questions: (1) Do I understand how it works? (2) Do I understand why it works? (3) Does it follow the cycles and laws of Nature? (4) Do I understand basic nature of Gravity? (5) Is my Over-balancing wheel more or less replica of Solar System? (6) Do scientific fantasies and activities of my childhood reflect that I could be an original inventor at this stage? If the answer is "yes" to all these questions, then you're really on to something. If the interpretation is wrong then it won't fit, and so you know it's wrong. Don’t overuse your skill of decoding secrets, don’t involve in haphazard reading of MT drawings, for this will lead to mental confusion, and finally desperation of ever learning anything. Against the advice of this author, If you still wants to decode and always change your materials and procedure, then, this is all fine and dandy... but don't go calling it final secret of perpetual motion!

With the correct interpretation, as I present in this website, you will understand (1) what perpetual motion is, (2) why it works, and (3) how it works. (4) Where does energy come from? No other interpretation can give you this; they only rely on blind faith, since that is the only way to believe a lie.Notice how I back up any statement I make in regards to perpetual motion theory and practice with several quotes from a variety of sources on perpetual motion . You will not find this with any other interpretation. Notice how I explain not only how perpetual motion works, but why perpetual motion works. Notice how you can actually understand what I say, and it makes sense with Nature. I don't really mind these misinterpretations in a way, since I had no problem understanding the perpetual motion, which I read before any of the modern stuff. But the purpose of my concern here is to put a stop to further disinformation and lies. That being said, since the construction of Orffyreus follow celestial mechanics based on fundamental laws of Nature, and since fundamental laws hold true on every level and every situation, then the same laws apply to the operation of Over-balancing wheel.

Orffyreus’ story once again raises the question: How “contingent” is our technological history? “Historical contingency” simply means that if certain things did not happen or that something else could have happened, then, history of technology would have been different. What scientists have today is in part a consequence of what they had and what decisions they took in history. Consensus decision of scientist taken in past to glorify law of conservation of energy and reject and ridicule the art of perpetual motion have maligned the entire history of science and technology.

Remembering Nikola Teslas's Dream of Free Energy

The story of Orffyreus reminds me words of Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) that were spoken at the end of his dream for Wardenclyffe.

“Humanity is not yet sufficiently advanced to be willingly led by the discoverer's keen searching sense. But who knows? Perhaps it is better in this present world of ours that a revolutionary idea or invention instead of being helped and patted, be hampered and ill-treated in its adolescence - by want of means, by selfish interest, pedantry, stupidity and ignorance; that it be attacked and stifled; that it pass through bitter trials and tribulations, through the strife of commercial existence. So do we get our light. So all that was great in the past was ridiculed, condemned, combatted, suppressed - only to emerge all the more powerfully, all the more triumphantly from the struggle."


We can also marvel at the vision shown by Tesla, in his philosophical paper titled as “The Problem of Increasing Human Energy” that got published in “The Century” journal at year 1900. While conceiving the possibility of a gravity driven perpetual motion machine, Tesla   wrote:


“It is possible, and even probable, that there will be, in time, other resources of energy opened up, of which we have no knowledge now. We may even find ways of applying forces such as magnetism or gravity for driving machinery without using any other means. Such realizations, though highly improbable, are not impossible. An example will best convey an idea of what we can hope to attain and what we can never attain. Imagine a disk of some homogeneous material turned perfectly true and arranged to turn in frictionless bearings on a horizontal shaft above the ground. This disk, being under the above conditions perfectly balanced, would rest in any position. Now, it is possible that we may learn how to make such a disk rotate continuously and perform work by the force of gravity without any further effort on our part; but it is perfectly impossible for the disk to turn and to do work without any force from the outside. If it could do so, it would be whatis designated scientifically as a "perpetuum mobile," a machine creating its own motive power. To make the disk rotate by the force of gravity we have only to invent a screen against this force. By such a screen we could prevent this force from acting on one half of the disk, and the rotation of the latter would follow. At least, we cannot deny such a possibility until we know exactly the nature of the force of gravity. Suppose that this force were due to a movement comparable to that of a stream of air passing from above toward the center of the earth. The effect of such a stream upon both halves of the disk would be equal, and the latter would not rotate ordinarily; but if one half should be guarded by a plate arresting the movement, then it would turn.”

Thanks to Publishing house “Slavija“ from Novi Sad, Serbia. It has published a bilingual book (Serbian & English) with illustrations and visionary paper “The Problem of Increasing Human Energy“at 1996, which is also the title of the book. The above quoted paragraph appears at the last paragraph in page 56, which ended in the first half of page 57 in the book.

“With regard to using the force of Gravity I have become convinced that one has to understand the deeper metaphysical meaning of forces to create self running or self accelerating devices. This deeper meaning creates oneness with the purpose, function and mechanical design of the device. Any malfunctioning of the device is an invitation to remove a blockage that is present in the team. Therefore making free energy devices is a spiritual practice which brings with it consciousness, humility and the principle of sharing.”

So beautiful! And so suggestive and enlightening words for any one who is involved in unraveling mystery of gravity power!

A Brief Note about Rediscovering Perpetual Motion in Light of Vedic Science

I recollect, during early 80s, it was auspicious day of Buddha Purnima. My GURU Deva Ramananda was giving discourse on Budhha to his disciples. When my Guru ended his sermon, I raised some questions to him.

I asked: “My reverend master, you have just said that ignorance is the main cause of all suffering. And you also said that desires and ambitions are the real cause of the frustration in life. But, what about the ambitions of a perpetual motion inventor? Should he cease his quest to invent a perpetual motion machine, as it is often fraught with failures and frustrations? Do you see any truth in claim of Amar lal and possibility of perpetual motion? What about claims of those hundreds of ambitious men who have filed patent applications all over the world? How can Amarlal's claim be false? Should president of India respond and support his invention? Is Government of India going to do any justice to him? Would your majesty personally help the old man and take him out of the predicament?

My GURU began his message with following lines:

“Greed is an evil root. An anvil receives many blows”

I did not understand what he really meant by these words.However, I learned that he preached the Vedic philosophy that man being the abode of gods, being the part of nature must surrender to nature and be one with it, and then nature bestows its rewards to men. Vedic Rhisis inspire to preserve the sacredness of man as well as that of nature. It appears that both have been lost ever since mankind became materialistic as a consequence of the Industrial Revolution. Then, he went on to advocate a patent free philosophy for the invention. Then, from the Raja Bhoja’ book “Samarangan Sutradhara”, he also described qualifications of an ideal perpetual motion inventor necessary to invent a perpetual motion machine which can help inventor to get success in his mission. He also alluded to Rbhus and their feats of perpetual motion in Vedic times. The over all message contained in his discourse was indeed philosophical and fascinating.

Deva Ramanada said: “Nature bestows its great secrets to only those who sincerely love it, and surrender to it with a pure heart. Those who have greed are doomed to have troubles in their quest. Nature puts inventor under trial before granting some reward, he has to be an invariable seeker and firm in his determination. As an anvil receives many blows to shape something, while moving on his journey of perpetual motion, an aspirant too is tested repeatedly by nature. One must preserve to sustain these blows without complaint until he gets the kingly secret by grace of the Nature. After many years, to my utter surprise, when I found his messege ditto in Orffyreus’ Apologia Poetica I found myself somewhat in an embarrassing position. I came to learn that my Guru had already known about Orffyreus and his work many many years ago. Since, I have been a shy man; I could never disclose to my Guru that over the years I had also been in search of the same secret. There was no possibility that any one could tell him about my secret search because I had never told anything about it to any one.

Surya Sidhhanta predicts:

“The Knowledge of perpetual motion is lost at the end of every Yuga. It is rediscovered by astronomer whom God (Sun) pleases!”

Surya Sidhhanta clearly suggests that perpetual motion is an anointed invention!

We have deeper questions here. Why is the secret of perpetual motion lost after it is invented every time? Why ‘Bessler’ eventually became ‘Orffyreus’? The secret of ‘Bessler’s perpetual motion, now lost in mist of time, needs to be understood from that of "Sidhhanta" and ‘Orffyreus’ religious perspective. Otherwise; it would not be possible to understand what the ‘Orffyreus’ is trying to communicate. There is high positive relationship between sound moral preparations and divine intervention. Today, most of the researchers may know ‘Bessler’ well but to know “Orffyreus” would still be difficult for them without some spiritual inclination.  This is exactly where Deva Ramananda comes to our help. I also believe that he knew “Orffyreus’ better than us.  Deva Ramananda was the first person in history who applied Vedic principles to reconstruct Orffyreus’ perpetual motion wheel by beginning with the design of a “Swastika Wheel” and further detailing the mechanism by relying on designs of Rhisi “Dirghtamas’ Perpetual Motion Celestial wheels” which are also great source of astronomical information. It would remain a  mystery for  me to know how Deva Ramananda could talk so confidentally about ‘yoking of spheres and structural details of ‘cross bar,’ “chords and pulleys” found in “Dirghatamas Perpetual Motion Celestial wheels” descriptions of which also lead us to a crude design of heliocentric system of world (solar system). In fact, very rich in his spiritual powers, Deva Ramananda, I used to note,  was so low in mechanical aptitude that it put me to smile or laughter  whenever ink ran out his pen and he was looking here and there for help as he had difficulty even in putting a new ‘refill’ in his ball point pen! He damned little spring and ratchet which came out and his pen did not fit  again. Yet, he guided me to explore perpetual motion in Vedas laying equal emphasis on mechanical aspects of perpetual motion. I would say that Rg Veda, the oldest book of natural philosophy by mankind,  with its cosmological, astronomical, philosophical and sociological foundations on perpetual motion is a perfect treatise on perpetual motion. It leads to great understanding of natural forces like gravity, electromagnetism etc their functional attributes, operational mechanism, and interrelationship among them  hitherto unknown to scientific world. Moreover, Vedic thermodynamics with large number of hymns on Agni (Heat) stands in flagrant contradiction to classical thermodynamics.  Indian Sidhhanta astronomers Brihmgupta, Lallacharya (Circa 6th century) and later Bhaskaracharya (Circa 12th century) who rediscovered perpetual motion and proposed first designs of quick-silver driven perpetual motion machine had acknowledged Vedic influence in their astronomical revelations. Similarly King Raja Bhoja’s magnum opus   “Samarangan Sutradhara,” largely a treatise on architecture, which also includes descriptions and method of constructions of various machines and aero planes based on perpetual motion run by quick silver, follows a perfect Vedic tradition. King Raja Bhoja unequivocally declared that “Swayamvahaka sarvotutkristam”- meaning “perpetual motion is the best machine!”.

Deva Ramananda describes Bhaskaracharya’s  wheel in following words:

“Bhaskaracharya in his Siddhanta Shiromani describes a wheel having on its outer edge a number of holes of equal size and at equal distance from one another arranged on two radii in a zigzag manner, in other words there were two circular rows of holes around the wheel. Bhaskaracharya then suggests half filling them with quick silver and sealing them. It was claimed that if such a wheel with its   axle was supported on pair of props, the wheel would rotate by itself once set in motion. It is difficult to know whether he ever constructed and tested his device. Tradition was that even if he actually constructed it, it would remain   a secret forever.”

Referring to Arnold Pacey’s book, Wikipedia also states:


“Around 1150, the astronomer Bhaskara Achārya observed water-raising wheels and imagined such a wheel lifting enough water to replenish the stream driving it, effectively, a perpetual motion machine.”[i]

Wikipaedia also reminds us Bhaskaracharya's major scientific contributions:


“In many ways, Bhaskara represents the peak of mathematical and astronomical knowledge in the 12th century. He reached an understanding of calculus, astronomy, the number systems, and solving equations, which were not to be achieved anywhere else in the world for several centuries or more.”


There is little doubt that Bhaskaracharya’s work influenced later developments in the Middle East and Europe. In addition to fascinating mercury wheel, his other works also became known to Islamic scholars and later they were introduced to Europe by the end of the 12th century.[ii]


Inspired by Sidhhantika astronomers, and especially, Bhaskaracharya, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the ruler of Amber,  experimented with a large number of perpetual motion machines. According to Strobl, Jai Singh is said to have spent 50000 guilders on his experiments with perpetual motion machines.


Swai Jai Singh (1688-1743) and Orffyreus (1681-1745) were contemporary perpetual motionists in two different countries. When Orffyreus demonstrated his over-balancing wheel at the castle of Weissenstein in 1717, Orffyreus became 37 year old and Jai Singh 29 years old.  We do not know whether Swai Jai Singh knew about Orffyreus’ perpetual motion. Swai  Jai Singh’s (1688-1743) treatise on astronomical instruments, Yantra-prakara, for all intents and purposes was completed before 1724. Jai Singh also received Imperial support for building his Astronomy Observatories at Delhi, Jaipur, Varanasi, Ujjain and Mathura.


Founded on 18 November 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the ruler of Amber, the Jaipur (Rajasthani: जैपर Hindi: जयपुर),  also popularly known as the Pink City, is the capital and largest city of the Indian state of Rajasthan. The author of this website is also living in Jaipur at present.  


 Perpetual motion is truly heritage of India. The video clip presented below shows the appreciation of Vedic science by  eminent western scholars, and its diffusion around the globe. In this clip you can watch astronomical instrument "Samrat Yantra" built by King Swai Jai Singh at Jaipur, and also a perpetual motion wheel inscription on an old coinage ( i.e. Vasudeva holding a perpetual motion wheel, 180–165 BCE, Coin of Greek ruler, Agathocles with Hindu deities: Vasudeva-Krishna and Balarama-Samkarshana).

Deva Ramananda's Stand on this Website

Thanks to Deva Ramananda! With such ancient background and Vedic holistic approach in mind, Deva Ramananda wanted my web site and books to be different from others on this subject. In addition to maintaining the factual information about the events in the life of Orffyreus and his wheels, Deva Ramananda also wanted my website to be highly “suggestive” containing in it some “spiritual element” and mysticism in harmony with Orffyreus’ mental attitude, his religious faith, his way of life and his invention. He wanted “heart and soul of the readers of the websites to resonate with that of Orffyreus so that they land more easily into the secret of Orffyreus.” Being trained in mainstream science, when I had expressed my concern over not to incorporate any mysticism in the main story of Orffyreus, Deva Ramananda chided me justifying his point of view. Here, I still recollect his words. He told me somewhat angrily: “Rascal, why you do not understand the esoteric laws of nature, the fact that getting knowledge through process of perception, conception, recognition and understanding of any secret thing involves a “spiritual dimension”? It is unfortunate that you still seem to be unaware of power of intuition based on faith. Here, when we have a challenge of knowing the secret of machine that was lost with death of Orffyreus some 250 years ago, your bad science and your training in it cannot be of much help in revealing the secret. Where is the way except surrendering to the great soul of Orffyreus? Did you forget story of Eklavya and Dronacharya, great master of archery? Make no mistake. Your science which rejects perpetual motion is certainly pseudoscience! Don’t consider anything to be fiction that I have spoken so far about Orffyreus as they contain most important clues about the invention known to me through my power of intuition and transcendental meditation. While making a reading of your website, I want heart and soul of your readers to resonate with that of Orffyreus so that they land more easily into the secret of Orffyreus.”

A Final Note to this Home Page

I shall end this home page with a quote from Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, she is my one of favorite mystic and philosophers.

Helena Blavatsky- Founder of Theosophical Society 


“One thing is certain, when a man shall have discovered the perpetual motion, he will be able to understand by analogy all the secrets of nature; progress in direct ratio with resistance.” Isis Unveiled, Volume 1, Page 502


Blavatsky’s above quote seems to be the reproduction of the original statement made by  French occult author and purported magician Eliphas Levi (1810-1875) in his book entitled: “Dogma et Rituel de la Haute Magie” Part I: The Doctrine of Transcendental Magic, translated by A. E. Waite


While describing “Tetragram”, on page 21, Elephas Levi states: “Imagine a watch having two parallel springs, with an engagement which makes them work in an opposite direction so that the one in unwinding winds up the other. In this way, the watch will wind up itself, and you will have discovered perpetual motion. The engagement should be at two ends and of extreme accuracy. Is this beyond attainment? We think not. But when it is discovered the inventor will understand by analogy all the secrets of Nature PROGRESS IN DIRECT PROPORTION TO RESISTANCE.

The absolute movement of life is thus the perpetual consequence of two contrary tendencies which are never opposed. When one seems to yield to the other, it is like a spring which is winding up, and you may expect a reaction, the moment and characteristics of which it is quite possible to foresee and determine.”


In his book "The Doctrine of Transcendental Magic" Eliphis Levi attributes symbol "Cheth" to find the Philosophical Stone", "Teth" to possess the universal medicine" and  "Yod" to know the laws of perpetual motion and prove the quadrature of the circle". "Kaph", "To change into gold, not only all metals, but also the Earth itself and even the refuse of the Earth".

Since perpetual motion is actual mechanics of the creative process in Nature, we may call it as the Prime Mechanism of the power creation. Matter, mind and life are non existent without perpetual motion. When we talk about creative potential of nature, it appears that fundamental principles which govern matter, mind and life are essentially same in all planes of existence. Perpetual motion is one of such principles that impart necessary power and stability to govern activities of matter, mind and life and their creative capabilities also. It is only the principle of perpetual motion by which these entities secure their existence, maintain their identity and sustain various processes even in adverse environment. On physical plane, though genuine inventors like Orffyreus, in the past, have demonstrated the principle of perpetual motion by devising a mechanism that would move any object forever without expenditure of force, in essence, on metaphysical plane, the principle is deeper than demonstration, deeper than definite cognition, deep as the very nature of the mind, soul or Brihma. It is direct manifestation of soul. Its authority transcends all other physical principles whatever, for not only is perpetual motion given in the constitution of our consciousness, but also it is impossible to imagine a consciousness so constituted as not to give it. Man is the activator of this creative principle and he sets the creative principle in motion by his thoughts. As he thinks so does he create. In essence, perpetual motion is creation from “nothingness” - the “formless void” of primordial matter, the “great deep” or “abyss” out of which the cosmos or order of the universe has come and evolved. Stars, planets, entire solar system which are born from nothingness grow, mature, become old and eventually die, giving way to other which follows the same course and ultimately vanish into nothingness. We were born from ‘nothingness’; we will merge into nothingness, entire universe sprung from ‘nothingness and in turn would dissolve into nothingness. “All from nothing”, “all from void” - the value of these assertions may be gauged from the fact that great mystics Christ, Buddha, Lao-tzu, Shankaracharya, Eckhart, Teilhard de Chardin, Aurobindo, Madame H. P. Blavatsky J.Krishnamurti, Osho and many other philosophers were cognizant of the principle. They have been fascinated by mystery of “nothingness” and rise of universe by inherent perpetual motion in it. They have taught to us that whatever is born will also be destroyed and whatever may be destroyed cannot be thought to be permanent. Hence everything is momentary everything exist only for a moment. Even our own self is the flow of consciousness. In the consciousness the present moment is the result of the past, and the future is the result of present. Thus, one moment succeeds another moment and the action and the memory of the past moments are transferred to the next moment. This perpetual flux which springs from “nothingness” goes on perpetually. Here I mean to say that philosophical basis of perpetual motion was well discovered by many great philosophers of ancient civilizations.

Lo Tzu is my other favorite mystic and philosopher, I often dance when I read these lines from his classic "Tao Te Ching." Just look into the profundity of thought in the classic where Lao-tzu clearly conceives principle of perpetual motion working in cosmos:

The way is empty, yet use will not drain it.
It is empty without being exhausted. The more it works the more comes out.
Much speech leads inevitably to silence. Better to hold fast to void.
The way (Tao) begets one, one begets two, two begets three; three begets the myriad creatures.

Though Lao-tzu clearly conceives principle of perpetual motion in universe, the import of his whole philosophy is about spiritual uplift of man and this is why he is generally mentioned in connection with mysticism and not with perpetual motion.

Similarly, calling to the attention of his disciples, German Philosopher Echhart says: “Now listen, I am going to say something I have said never before, when God created the heavens, the earth, and creatures, he did no work, he had nothing to do, he made no effort".

If by chance some physicist were there in the audience attending Echhart's sermon, certainly, he would have perplexed and perspired as truth revealed by mystic exposes the hollowness of concept of "work" established by the physicist in contradiction with our common sense concept of "work." I mean laws and concepts of physics are severely flawed when applied to "ultimate reality".

All these great mystics have taught that on spiritual plane, Self reverence, Self knowledge, and Self control- these three alone leads to Self realization that eventually imparts to individual sovereign power and happiness in his life. No one will dispute the fact that their spiritualistic doctrines, from which spring eternally a perpetual progress in Wisdom and Virtue, consequently, leads to Perfection and Joy of our inner nature. But, on material plane, perpetual Motion, Self- propelled, Self regulated and Self controlled, that generates unlimited power out of nothing to fulfill demands of power in nature, have been realized by inventors only.  

Nature bestows its secrets to man only after he has struggled through a long way in the search. By practice of perpetual motion a great truth is revealed to man that energy is created from nothing and from here he infers that entire universe has sprung from nothing, then, man becomes introvert; begins to speculate upon the inner world of the changeless. In his further meditations, man's concentration is now shifted from perception and reasoning to the eternal realm of sweetness and light. This experimental approach towards understanding the ultimate nature of energy and the universe is parallel to mysticism or spiritualism, which are essentially spiritual sciences. In the cultural history of the world, we find man's consciousness oscillating between these two extremes: science and mysticism. Now the time has come to synthesize both the points of view. The perpetual motion can bridge the gap between the two and present the whole unified vision of the universe. Perpetual motion harmonizes with the ultimate conclusions of eastern mysticism. As truth is the goal of all science and philosophy, so the same truth is the goal of perpetual motion. Modern science has discovered nothing that accommodates the conclusions of the perpetual motion philosophy. Perpetual motion is a technology, philosophy and a religion at the same time. Deva Ramananda says: ‘perpetual motion is a true practical philosophy that begins with experiments and ends in meditations on true nature of energy in the ultimate realm of mysticism, it is the most sublime of all philosophies, and the most comforting of all religions. It has room for almost every religion. It embraces them all.” 

The study of perpetual motion is a most rewarding interest that can shed truth-revealing light on all aspects of existence. It can provide subject matter for a lifetime of discovery in such diverse subjects as sociology, theology, psychology, health, occult anatomy, cosmology, and metaphysics.Because it is so ancient, through perpetual motion, one can trace the development of the human mind in its struggles to understand the mystery of natural forces and exploit them to adapt to environment. Perpetual motion contains the antidote to the challenges and errors of modern life and can resolve the conflicts produced by the materialism, specifically by the Descartian/Newtonian ideas of Western philosophy and the putative laws of thermodynamics. Deva Ramananda says that perpetual motion has been the consolation of his life and would be the consolation of his death. Perpetual motion has influenced such eminent people as Brahamgupta, Bhaskarachrya, Raja Bhoja, Lao Tzu,Blavatsky, inventors like Cornelius Drebbel, Edward Somerset, Orffyreus; European or western scientists such as Leibniz, Tesla;George Stephenson, Bernoulli, Sir Richard Arkwright, inventor of the spinning Jenny; Professor s'Gravesande, Sir David Brewster and many others.They were talented persons, qualified and respected scientist, mechanics and engineer who firmly believed in possibility of perpetual motion as means of providing power to drive all types of machine. We have great appreciations for all of these great perpetual motion philosophers and inventors of the past who devoted their lives in pursuit of Truth and Wisdom. 

Does perpetual motion shatter foundations of science? Deva Ramananda says "yes" but he also shows that everything could be restored again to a wonderful simplicity by a slight change in some of fundamental concepts in physics. Every great invention has exercised its influence on the general history of science, and, in return, every important movement in science has affected the development of other branches of knowledge. Thus, the revived interest in perpetual motion and mechanical science, and the great progress made in these branches of knowledge will be characteristic of 21st century, more than anything else will determine the future of mankind.

Yet Another Case of Suppression, Ridicule and Mockery

Though perpetual motion and its hundreds of inventors have been ridiculed for centuries, we have frequent cases of suppression, ridicule, excommunication in other fields also. It was only after many years of fighting a battle against scientific orthodoxy, mockery and ridicules that Israeli scientist Dan Shechtman was finally awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry on Wednesday, :5 October, 2011 for an outstanding discovery of a new crystalline chemical structure that seemed to violate the laws of nature, more or less, like our gravity driven perpetual motion machine that shatters putative law of conservation of energy. Dan Shechtman was exiled from his U.S. research team, before it won widespread acceptance as a fundamental breakthrough.  

It appears that scientific community has yet not taken any lesson, and suppression of maverick still continues though in the end he is proven right as usual. Its a oft-repeated story in the history of science.
Let me recall here the song composed by Ira Gershwin (1896-1983) “They All Laughed” (1937 song)

They all laughed at Christopher Columbus
When he said world was round.
They laughed when Edison Recorded sound.
They all laughed at Wilbur and his brother when they said that man could fly
They told Marconi Wirless was phony.
It’s the same old cry!

"People just laughed at me," Shechtman recalled in an interview this year with Israeli newspaper Haaretz, noting how Linus Pauling, giant of chemical sciences and double Nobel laureate, debunked his rare work and launched a "crusade" against him, with remarks: "There is no such thing as quasicrystals, only quasi-scientists."

After scolding Shechtman to go back and better read the textbook, the head of his research group asked him to leave for "bringing disgrace" on the team. "I felt rejected," Shechtman recollected.  

"His discovery was extremely controversial," remarked the Nobel Committee at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, which granted him the $1.5-million award.

Committee further added "Dan Shechtman had to fight a fierce battle against established science ... His battle eventually forced scientists to reconsider their conception of the very nature of matter."  

"In quasicrystals, we find the fascinating mosaics of the Arabic world reproduced at the level of atoms: regular patterns that never repeat themselves."

Does scientist get any lesson from this story?

"A good scientist is a humble and listening scientist and not one that is sure 100 percent in what he reads in the textbooks," Shechtman himself said.

I would further add to this lesson that scientists must cease to ridicule perpetual motion and its inventor. They must review their errors and re-investigate the entire thermodynamics. If they do not do this, perpetual motion is surely going to boomerang on them in near future.

Look at the Dan Shechtman’s model in above picture.  

A point to ponder!

Whether be it structure of DNA (Watson and Crick double helical strand model) or structure of Dan Shechtman’s model in above picture or crossbar in a gravity perpetual motion machine, the Lazy tong structure appears to be an important component.  

It appears that mystery of the “Brahamanda- the expanding Egg” (universe) as Vedic Rhisis called it, subject to expansion and contraction, is yet not over. Also, Australian Academy of Science Professor Brian Schmidt is one of three US-born scientists to win the Nobel Prize in Physics this year for discovering that the universe is expanding at an accelerating pace.

India Today Reports

Indian physicist 'cheated' of Nobel?

This year's Nobel Prize in physics went to three astronomers for their work demonstrating that "dark energy" was propelling expansion of the universe at ever-increasing speeds. An Indian physicist claims that he had proposed a similar theory a year before the three astronomers first announced their results in 1998.

Dr B. G. Sidharth, director general of B. M. Birla Science Centre, had proposed the "dark energy" model at the seventh Marcel Grossman Conference in Jerusalem in June 1997, and at another conference on quantum physics in Singapore a year later. His research paper titled "The Universe of Fluctuations" was published in International Journal of Modern Physics in 1998.

Astronomers, including Saul Perlmutter and Adam Reiss - two of the three winners of the 2011 Nobel - published their observations, which confirmed Sidharth's theory. Their studies were published in the Astrophysics Journal in 1999.

Sidharth asserts that it was only after his paper was published that the other researchers got their findings published. "My theory was based on physics and mathematical calculations. The mathematical model that I followed is called fluctuational cosmology. On the other hand, the model proposed by the Nobel winners was based on observational findings while studying a supernova," he said.

According to his model, there was no big bang resulting in the creation of matter and energy in the universe instantaneously. Rather the universe is permeated by an energy field or quantum vacuum. Out of such an all- pervading energy field, particles are created in a totally random manner, a process that continues. "This model was diametrically opposite to the accepted idea that the universe, dominated by dark matter, was actually decelerating. However, I proposed that driven by dark energy, the universe would be expanding and accelerating," he said.

Sidharth recalls that his theory was written off by physicists since it had several inexplicable concepts. "Several astronomers in 1998 confided to me that my observations were wrong. What is surprising is that when the three astronomers also proposed the same theory based on observational findings, it was also rejected."

He said the presence of dark energy was later confirmed by the Wilkinson Microwave Probe (WMAP) and the Sloane Digital Sky Survey. He claims that his research papers had received several critical reviews.

Though Sidharth had presented his papers at the Jerusalem conference and got them published in the international journals, they went unnoticed by the subsequent researchers, including the three Nobel prize winners.

Sidharth feels that the Nobel academy should have acknowledged his contribution, but does not plan to take up the issue with it. However, he said, several of his scientist friends are planning to write to the Academy. "I am happy that my findings have been reconfirmed, though I did not expect that the theory would fetch the Nobel prize," he signs off. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Let me comment here. One thing is certain that all of these physicists have no desire to revisit idea of perpetual motion which their predecessors had buried since law of conservation of energy was established
Theories in cosmology on the origin of Universe are numerous and of great variety. We must not be surprised to see that each one of them have limitations. If any one of them was satisfactory, we should not get any new one. And there is a mad rush to invent new theories in this field. If each new philosopher or scientist who has applied himself to the question has thought it necessary to invent another; it is because he was dissatisfied with those of his predecessors; and if he was not satisfied, it was because he thought he detected a petitio principii.These theories do not offer any satisfactory answer to the problem of creation of matter and they also do not take cognizance of a vital principle like perpetual motion or Prana, a self-principle that moves by itself.

Perpetual motion by demonstrating continuous creation of energy can solve most pressing problems of cosmology. Sooner or later, the physicist has to come to realize this point though his terms and approach may be different. Now we have entered in 21st century. Much has been written in last century about perpetual motion as the hoax, folly, and fraud. During the last hundred years or so and particularly during the last century, human knowledge has developed to astonishing degrees. With increasing knowledge have come improved techniques, and a large number of inventions. But unfortunately science has entirely closed the door for perpetual motion.

Perpetual motion is a continual process of getting an endless mechanical advantage to perform work by creativity and ingenuity. Invention of the gravity motor is just a beginning. Scope of the perpetual motion is unlimited. If the human beings keep on evolving, it would probably end, at the point, where one becomes equivalent to the powers of nature or god. Deva Ramananda observes perpetual motion as gradual process of sharing with glory of god and his powers. This is one of the starting points where technology and religion meet. Perpetual motionist will finally become God when he would create not only energy from nothing but every thing that he desires at the command of his ‘Will’. Moreover, when perpetual motionist would do it, he would have already become a God. This is why Rbhus, Vedic perpetual motionist enjoyed status of being equivalent to God. By practice of mechanical arts, when they achieved divinity and immortality, they were offered Soma drink by the gods. There are many hymns sung in praise of them. Unfortunately, today glory has gone and perpetual motionist is ridiculed everywhere, he is considered as crackpot.

Perpetual motion is very much forgotten and abandoned subject in scientific circles at present times. Undoubtedly, perpetual motion is an old art. It thrived well in 16 –17-18 centuries. However, it is still being practiced by free energy enthusiasts in present time. You can find beginning of mechanics in perpetual motion. While going through history of perpetual motion, you must have felt a time reversal- going back into the past. This throw back must have upset you a little. But, we are helpless. We do not know why perpetual motion upsets everything- at some stage it upsets even its inventor, investor, examiner, and so on. Since perpetual motion is a fundamental problem that has gone unattended by science ever since law of conservation of energy was established, this throwback is bound to upset science. Sometimes throw back is inevitable, particularly, when old and new knowledge compliment with each other to reveal truth greater than before. While formulating his general theory of relativity, Einstein had to revisit Vortex theory of Descartes that paved way for visualization of space-time curvature.

If you have a progressive mind, you will acknowledge that rediscovery and crucial experiment of perpetual motion can open up new vistas before us and correct some of the mistakes that science committed in past. We can judge the embarrassment of physicists because perpetual motion, which was buried down by them some 150 years ago, has come to life again. While going through these pages, your creative and researching mind is sure to reach to the point to which even quantum mechanics and relativity have not come parallel. The truth of perpetual motion shows indicates to the ultimate reality, the source of everything about which physicists yet requires much to learn. Experience has convinced us that whenever a major new experiment arrives, new domains of knowledge are created. It makes a shift in our attitude, as new facts of entirely different character from those of former experience are revealed and gradually we prepare ourselves to adapt to new situation.

Advent of quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity have brought a profound change in the thinking man to a great extent and now there is growing conviction that in reality new orders of experience do exist; and with discovery of perpetual motion and every major break through in the future, we may expect to meet them continually. Perpetual motion promises to impart a better future in both ways –theoretical as well as practical. I hope readers will find something in it, which evokes his curiosity to undertake further studies of this fascinating subject.

To realize the profundity of the philosophy contained in perpetual motion, we have to keep query and ask questions- While gravity perpetual motion machine works, where does energy come from? Does it come from gravity or somewhere else? Where does the gravity come from?

I can presume to raise the questions and ask you to think about them, in the hope that if enough people think about that, we may some day get them answered. If we are here diving into a realm of thought, that has more of metaphysics than physics in it, never mind, all-modern theories of physics are, more or less, are bound to have room for meta-physical interpretations on account of imperfect nature of concepts of physic or a state of crisis. And I am sure no wise physicist will venture to throw metaphysics in to fire for he understands that his own subject will smolder also- that not only philosophy but also mathematics- queen of the science contains indecisive propositions. Godel’s theorem has enough to say about that.

Where Does Created Energy Come From?

One can answer that it is the kinetic energy, which comes from the motion of the various parts of the machine mainly the planets, which exerts pressure to move the wheel because of the gravity pull. But then arises the question: Where does the gravity come from? It comes from the mass of the matter- in this case mass of the planets and earth and because of the interaction between them. Where does mass come from? It comes from energy as Einstein tells us that energy has mass and mass has energy. Where does the energy come from? So we have again come to our original question. Whenever we attempt to answer any thing, which is ultimate, our answers are bound to form a vicious close cycle. So Where Does The Energy Come From? Energy does not come from anywhere; it simply appears. Simply, it is created out of ‘nothing’. Energy is just appearance. I hope readers will find something in it, which evokes his curiosity to undertake further studies of Over-balancing wheel. Energy which is claimed to be measured by scientist is appearance only. Since everything is made of energy, they are also appearance. Vedanta tells us that Maya consisting of the phenomenal world in which every thing – bud or flower, table or chair, pebble or rock, pleasure or pain -have their relative existence are mere appearances. They are different forms; they are nothing in themselves.

Ultimate Questions Are Not Answerable

Osho Rajneesh tells us that those questions which are simple often belong to category of the ultimate questions. You may raise any simple question from any branch of the knowledge and try to find the answer yourself, also try to see what others have said. You will see that there is no absolute answer to simple things that pose ultimate questions. To clarify this point, Osho Rajneesh enlightens us with many illustrations from history.

Let us raise a simple question from the mathematics – the queen of the science. We all know that two plus two is four but Bertrand Russell, one of the greatest mathematicians of our age in his book philosophy of mathematics discusses the problem in detail and ultimately fails to conclude that two plus two is four. We all know that two plus two is four, we have heard people saying it that two plus two is four. It is a simple question but a philosopher like Bertrand Russell would like to know and indulge in the simple question to know the truth. And his logical argumentation takes him to write two hundred and fifty pages to go into this simple question whether two plus two is four. Finally, Bertrand Russell concludes that it is only a belief that two plus two is four. Nothing can be said with certainty. It is a utilitarian concept and is only true as long as it works. To settle the problem, Godel, another mathematician goes even deeper than Russel has gone and rejects his conclusion. Godel is also a rare genius. Godel says that there is no possibility of two plus two being four. He rejects all the possibilities. His argument is simple and clear, even Bertrand Russell failed to refute it. Godel’s argument runs in this fashion: We can put two chairs and two chairs together and naturally, they are four chairs. But two in itself is an abstract symbol and does not truly represent two chairs.

In this vast Universe, no two things are exactly same. No two-finger prints are exactly same. No two forces are exactly same. We cannot find two people exactly same. We cannot find two leaves exactly same in the whole forest. Then how can two leaves that are not equal, together with two other leaves, which are also not equal, be four? The same is true with tables, chairs, and any thing that two plus two is not equal to four. Godel’s argument is appealing and equally powerful to settle the basic question on the basis that no two things in existence are exactly similar. This makes existence more mysterious. Mystery can be realized and lived but cannot be known. It always remains a mystery. Energy is a mystery. Its creation from nothing is a mystery.

We have so many ultimate questions. People have asked them to great masters who were enlightened people in their field. If anyone has attempted to answer a ultimate question- I think he could not succeed and whosoever claims to answer the question lives under an illusion.

This is why Lord Buddha denied answering 10 questions, which are called ‘Avyaktani’ because he considered it useless to search for the solutions, he never tried for the solution.

1. Is the world eternal?
2. Is it non-eternal?
3. Is it finite?
4. Is it infinite?
5. Is the body and self the same?
6. Is the self different from the body?
7. Was the Tathagat reborn after death?
8. Was he not born after death?
9. Is there re-birth and also no re-birth?
10. Is the rebirth and no re-birth both false.

From the practical standpoint, the answers to these questions are useless and from philosophical standpoint, no final solution can be secured. Hence, Buddha has not discussed them. This is not the case with only Buddha. This is the case with Mahaveera, Lautzu, Jesus and Moses.- with every one without exception. And these are great masters, sensible and intelligent persons. However, few have pretended to answer them. They have utterly failed. For centuries, these kinds of answers have put people in illusion. However, what great masters cannot answer, there is a possibility that an innocent child will answer because he is not an authority, he does not care for the respectability. He can risk everything for his sincerity. He is not going to bother if the whole world is going to ridicule him.

Osho Rajneesh reminds us that these men who were not prepared to put their wisdom at stake, could not show courage to admit –‘ I don’t know’. But that is the only authenticable and the most sincere answer because that gives a sense that we care to ultimate: now begins the mystery and it is unsolvable. There is no way to reduce it into knowledge. It is not an unknown, which can be made known by a rigorous exercise, effort, and intelligence or by any discipline, any method or by any ritual. Perpetual motionist does not care to define things because it is always a futile exercise.

Osho Rajneesh gives one more example. G.E. Moore, one of the greatest genius, who wrote ‘Pricipia Ethica’ found himself in a big trouble when he set himself to define ‘good’. Because ‘good’ forms the basic of the ethics and without defining ‘good’ and ‘bad’, there can be no ethics and no morality. What is good? It was a fundamental question and without realizing that it is the ultimate question, he found himself in troubled waters. G.E.Moore tried to look ‘good’ from different view points enquiring for more than two hundred pages, just on a single and simple question- What is ‘good’? How to define it and what is the most correct answer? Finally, he was defeated. He applied concentrated thinking, the keenest logic, and rational analysis but nothing could help him. He became so frustrated that he said, ‘don’t blame me that I have not been able to define what is good? Even simple questions- this is a very complex question- are indefinable.’

Cro-ce has faced same difficulty in defining ‘beauty’. His work is also voluminous ,a thousand pages and after this great exercise he has come to conclusion that ‘beauty’ is indefinable.

So every thing is indefinable because every thing in its essence is mysterious. It is not only a question of ‘beauty’ or good or bad. Mass, energy, work, motion, force, whole, absolute, space and time- whole existence consists of indefinables. To recognize this fact is to recognize our ultimate ignorance. And to be able to recognize our ultimate ignorance, we need a selfless ego and innocence of a child but that has been missing.

Only a man like Bodhidharma, a man of tremendous wisdom, courage, and intelligence has the courage to say that there is no answer to the question. He says – “I do not know”. Bodhidharma was facing an ultimate question, which nobody has ever been able to reply.. The ultimate question is ultimate because it cannot be answered. All philosophy, theology, and mysticism eventually come to the ultimate question, and there is no answer to it. Hoyle, in his “Steady State Theory” states that matter is in constant state of creation. But where does it come from? While answering this question, he says –”it simply appears”. He has no other satisfactory answer to the question. Because the question “Where does the matter come from?” - is an ultimate question.

He could have simply said I do not know, but to say, I do not know needs the greatest courage in the world. Hoyle does not seem to have that courage. So if you wish to know the source of energy which perpetual motion machines creates or if you want to know where energy come from, my first initial answer is that I don't know and I do not want to try to pretend by advancing some scientific mumbo jumbo. I do not want to build up any equation, law, theory, hypotheses, or postulate, to create an illusion that I know the answer. However, an attempt should be made to know the answer, after all, to find an answer to this question will not be bad thing so that intellectual curiosity is satisfied to some extent but whatever rigorous intellectual exercise we do in an attempt to answer an ultimate question, mystery is further heightened. There is no end to it. Knowledge of ultimate becomes more unknowable and ultimate question remains ultimate. This is the whole reason why we call the essential religion – mysticism. If everything can be answered, then, there is no question of any mystery and when there is no mystery, all beauty is lost.

I shall repeat the question. Where does energy come from? We are interested in knowing the ultimate source. If we can know the answer of this question then we will get key where from the existence has come? Existence is a mystery because we can go on answering, but finally we come to ultimate question, which is unanswerable. Moreover, it is not far away, with two or three more questions it soon comes. We can answer all superficial things, but as we go deeper the ultimate questions come closer and the moment the ultimate question come every one is cornered.

Just ask the cosmologist, where the entire Universe has come from?. He may answer; it came from a primeval atom. He will explain you the Big Bang theory. Now, the ultimate question-who created this primeval atom or a big bang? What was there before primeval atom existed? Question has a indefinite regress. Like wise religion that believes in God may continue their answer up to the point where it is asked-who has created this beautiful Universe? Where the existence has come from? They will answer, God was the creator, and he created every thing. Now arises the ultimate question- who created the God? Or as some body asked Saint Augustine: What was God doing before he created this world? And what was the answer, he could not answer; even nobody can answer. In embarrassment, he replied: “God was busy in preparing a hell for those who ask such questions.”!

Religion and theosophy answer that it was divine power that gave origin to everything in the Universe, a beginning that has no end. This age old answer pretends to clarify everything but in reality it makes no point and clarifies nothing. Our thought has the audacity to ask: Who created God? God created himself will be the most probable answer as our faith in God is fully concerned without a need of a previous being. There are no valid answers if we are not liberated of the concept of time and space in the sense of a controllable, convenient and subjective measure. If we could liberate ourselves from them, new horizons can open before our thought.

To any theory of origin of Universe is inevitable opposed, like a phantom, the question: And before, what was there? Further, then, what is there?

Similarly, for energy physicist is always inclined to know about its source. This is because of his conditioning of mind, his training in which he has been taught that energy must be in something, it must have a source. Without some source, it cannot come out. And wherever it comes out it is always in accordance with law of conservation of energy.

Nevertheless, enquiry is not wrong, not at all illogical because if everything needs some creator, then got must need a creator. And if God needs no creator, then why bother about God? Then why cannot we accept an existence itself, without a creator. If we have to accept somewhere or other, then it is better to stop with existence as the ultimate, because at least we know it, we are part of it. If we do not accept self-existence of some thing, indefinite regress goes on. We have to accept a self-existent principle somewhere to end the indefinite regress. This is the big problem of philosophy which one has to face somewhere.

Perpetual motion is one of the most significant inventions of the nature. This simple fact can be discovered in the two extremes, in the infinitely great as well as in the infinitely small.

Universe without perpetual motion cannot maintain itself and evolve. By perpetual motion, it creates energy and sustains its structure and form. Contrary to the first law of thermodynamics and all the experiments so far demonstrated in the favor of the principle, nature of energy is more accurately demonstrated through working of perpetual motion machines. By studying perpetual motion, one can discover laws of energy, which are more reasonable. In the light of perpetual motion, science and philosophy are under the necessity to seek new concepts for the interpretation of energy and cast their old kingdom into another mould.

Perpetual motion makes everything unified; every thing is linked together. Every thing is explained by perpetual motion which explains something else and that in its turn explains another. Perpetual motion interconnects every thing into a whole, there is nothing separate because every thing has to balance against each other, and every thing has to play its own role in coordinating the motion as a part of the great whole. There is nothing separate; that is, nothing that can be named or described separately. Nothing out side. Every thing is interrelated, interdependent and in a state of perpetual motion which forms a basis for all change and transformation in the Universe. Through perpetual motion, we are in the closest, most vital and intimate relationship with the entire cosmos.

Logic and intellect are only the parts of man’s being and not the whole being. The realization of the whole is a unique experience for it implies the freedom of consciousness from the polarities of knowledge, and all kinds of psychic mutations. Evolution is a purposeful organic perpetual motion by which, in living -beings new potentialities are created out of nothing. When self- motion is possible and understandable, there is no much difficulty in explaining self- repairing and self- reproducing which are characteristics of the living –beings. When radiation falls on matter, it may be partly reflected, partly absorbed, and partly transmitted. It has three possibilities. In the same way, it is logical to think that energy in its innumerable interactions and transformations may be created, conserved, and destroyed.

One question arises: Does transformation of one form of energy into other require expenditure of energy? Transformation of energy and never the creation is the word of science today. The fact is that creation of energy is the basic principles on which nature works; it is after that the question of conservation arises. By recognizing the truth of perpetual motion, science is bound to come to this conclusion in a short time. Perpetual motion is a crucial experiment. Perpetual motion is the most direct and demonstrative evidence that energy is creatable.

Some perpetual motionist has amusingly remarked: “Energy is not a mouse, running around, going into one hole, and coming out of another.”

God Has No Role As A Storekeeper Who Has To Remain Busy With Maintaining The Accounts Of Energy

Why to speculate that energy was already stored, and as our universe moves on, it would get exhaust someday. Perpetual motion is there to compensate. Universe is not just a store attended by God in the role of a storekeeper who has to remain busy with maintaining the accounts of energy. Let him relax. It would be too much taxing for him to guard twenty-four hours the fact that fix amount of matter remains in his store; it will be a too much strain to him watch that not a single atom is added to his store.

Adherents of second law of the first law of thermodynamics say that Universe is running down. One day all available energy will be exhausted and there will be the heat death of the Universe. The idea is ridiculous from perpetual motion point of view. Universe is a dynamic and self-sustained system in which demands of energy are fulfilled by perpetual motion by which energy is created out of nothing.
Perpetual motion is existence. A photon keeps moving forever. A photon is never at rest, it is always moving at 186000 miles a second. Therefore, its motion is its existence. If motion is halted, it will vanish into nothingness.

Energy is existence. It is subtle essence and substratum of all the things in the Universe. World has beginning in it, end in it. Various forms of energy are manifestations of this energy. Quantity of motion can increase and decrease therefore kinetic energy of Universe is subject to increase and decrease. Man which is a insignificant point in the Universe will never be able to know the Universe in its totality. We are only living in a little corner of the Universe. By making long excursions in space which future research in perpetual motion will enable us to do, we may find law of conservation of energy completely upset at colossal level. We have been fortunate enough to be born in a world, which is self sufficient in matter, energy, and motion. Many astronomical facts support the idea that energy is created out of nothing. Perpetual motion machine is like space –time singularity of a black hole- a place where physical laws, as presently understood, cease to apply.

In our civilization, truth of the most beautiful thoughts has been doubted. Nature does nothing which man who is embedded in nature cannot achieve. Energy can be created, if you know how to create it out of nothingness. All creativity of energy is creation – Universe, but physicist says, energy is uncreatable. Laws of physics are like comics; they seldom have reality. We are sure that we create. What are we? We are nothing, just “ego” only. If you can annihilate your ego, lose your identity, you can become one with the universal energy. This is energy actualization.

Man is a puny object in the world, as trifling as a straw or dust. World is unknowable in a true sense, yet, by a curious paradox, in its comprehension man goes beyond and includes the whole world within which he lives. Man plays his drama in the world; he goes on creating religion, science philosophy, and arts within the world and yet contains the world in his thoughts. He is integral part of nature and most of the time without transcending his consciousness he invents theories, inventions and laws to explain the whole nature. We do not know where we are. Who we are? And where do we stand? But physicist pretends as if he knows the whole universe.

No theory, no law, no concept prevalent in science is able to explain perpetual motion; therefore, it is natural to look elsewhere for the explanation. Eastern mysticism is closer to perpetual motion. Now everything, which is created, must have a cause, for without cause nothing can be created. What causes perpetual motion machine to create energy? Design of the machine is formal cause, and its various parts a material cause. Perpetual motionist and his tools are the efficient cause and inventor and his purpose his will or consciousness, the final cause.

Energy Is Identical to “Prana”

Recall Nikola Tesla here! who learned few Sanskrit terms from Swami Vivekananda when he was on a US tour. It helped Tesla to build his theory.

Chhandogya Upanishad states:
Prana , verily is greater than hope, just as the spokes of chariot wheel are fixed in nave, so also is all the fixed on this prana. Prana moves by prana, and gives for prana.
Pranah pranen yati, praanh pranam dadati pranam dadati.
Prana is father, prana is mother, prana is sister,prana is the teacher, prana is the brihma.
Prana is greater than hope. What does constitute its superiority? This is being explained by means of an illustration establishing its superiority.

Just as, in the world, the spokes of a chariot are fixed i.e. set, in the nave of chariot, similarly it is in the pransa called Prjmanatma which is chief prana in the living body, and which is the aggregate of many subtle separate bodies. That the supreme deity has entered in the form of Jiva(individual soul) so as reflection in a mirror for manifesting name and form.
As is a general superintendent to a king, so is this to lord, as evidenced by the sruti-text. By whose rising shall I become risen, by whose staying, shall I be staying on? Thinking this he created prana. It follows the lord like a shadow.
Again, we read in Kaushitaki Brhama Upanishad.
Just as spokes attach the felly of the wheel and spokes are fixed in the nave of a wheel, so are fixed particular objects on particular perceptions and the particular perceptions are fixed on the prana, and this prana is certainly the conscious self. Hence, all that is said alone is fixed on prana.
Chhandogya- vii – 15-1

This prana which is not dependent on another, moves by its own power. The idea is that its skill in the movement is not derived from any other source. All that is known as action is its accessories and result in nothing but prana. The meaning of this section is that there exists nothing outside prana. Prana gives prana, what it gives is identical with itself. To whosoever it is given, that too, goes to prana. Hence, all what is called further is prana alone.

Perpetual motion and its corollaries inevitably lead us to the admission of energy as an incorporeal being – spiritual being. Perpetual motion philosophy offers an adequate and satisfactory explanation of material as well as spiritual world.
