      "In this house, we obey the laws of thermodynamics!"
      Homer Simpson.


      "If you want to move mountains, you just go move mountains. If you don't have a big enough shovel, you get some friends to help you. If you have the enthusiasm to charge ahead, you can do all sorts of things. Some things you can't do. You can't invent a perpetual motion machine. You've got to select your targets. But people can do so much more than they realize."
      Paul MacCready.

      I would like you to look at this flowchart, and respond without conspiracy theories, off-topic conversations, or unrelated youtube links.

      Where is the rest of the energy coming from?
      Tesla is also responsible for this endless and inglorious search. In 1900, Tesla claimed to have discovered an abstract principle on which to base a perpetual motion machine. He wrote:
      "A departure from known methods – possibility of a "self-acting" engine or machine, inanimate, yet capable, like a living being, of deriving energy from the medium – the ideal way of obtaining motive power."
      But he produced no prototype.

      A living being eats food, absorbs sunlight, lives on geothermal energy, etc. It does not pluck energy from "the æther" and magically do work.

      My question still stands, where is the energy coming from?

      ATTACK!!! lol

      This is one expertise (mechanical engineering) the establishment don't want me to wake up.

      I'm sorry this really cuts into your beliefs guys.

      I have no beliefs anymore, just facts that I experience myself using my own senses.

      It just seems I'm in a different dimension to you guys at the moment!


      I woke up about 3 years ago. It reminds me of the Matrix film, which you guys are still asleep in. lol


      Put me in a straight jacket, I'm crazy! lol


      It's my money I'm spending, please just humor me, as if the device does work and we'll see how good it can get and how much money I will spend before I realise you are right.

      Please....


      Spend my money and help me positively.

      It's boring now you saying it won't work and me saying it will.

      Lets spend my money and see the results. lol

      Paul,

      I'm sorry that you view my questions as a personal attack, they aren't. They are me trying to understand how you think your device works. If we don't know how it works, how can we help build it?

      Please answer my question instead of side stepping it.

      But remember that the 19th century was a time of great scientific discoveries, when everything seemed to have a rational explanation and everything seemed possible. However, the 20th century showed that the world was much much more complicated than it seemed and not everything was possible, like creating energy from nothing. What a boring world!
      Tesla probably had no time to understand this context.

      As marketing manager (I am), I would say "Come on guys! Let's think outside the box!"
      As machine design manager (I was), I would say "Someone please find the box, put fire on it and shoot the next person who speak this damn cliché!"
