STATISTICS: Motive Mass It 2VOLITION:    2(6 active u / 3 dual-axial u)EQUILIBRIUM:   2(1 u / (1 stem / 2 subcycles))EFFICIENCY:   1(equal to dominoes)VOLITIONAL STATEMENT:motive mass is an attempt totranslate the domino effect intocyclical theory. Efficiency of 1seems ambiguous in this regard.If the tracks are deemed single-directional then the rating goes up to 3 infinity.
 Motive Mass Machine: A Perpetual Motion Machine ConceptUsing See-Saws and a “Difference Weight” Applied to AlternatingSides by Various MethodsPROCESS: How I came across this idea:1. I was considering a method to return a ball to a starting height by theuse of a spiral ramp blocked by the paddles of rotating wheels. It then occurredto me that an efficient method to catapult the ball back up might be to use aweighted see-saw. When both sides bear weight, but one side is heavier, themass of the heavier side nevertheless contributes to force. Thus it is notnecessary to move either of the weights except by use of counterbalance, andan alternation of a smaller mass, which I will call the “difference weight”.2. I attempted futilely to apply the concept to the spiral ramp idea, butquickly gave up in favor of an application of the rather simpler concept of theweighted see-saw.3. I devised some rough sketches similar to Diagram 1, in which it might bepossible for the weighted ends to operate catapults on either end of a tubearcing over the see-saw. Thus there may be methods for the force of thefalling weight to throw the “difference weight” to the other side, creating aperpetual cycle.4. I experimented. I placed a four or five foot board across a simple supportstructure, and duct-taped ten pound weights to either end. I found that whenthe structure was balanced and I then placed a pound of material on one of theweighted ends, that the force exerted when it hit the ground was rather over apound, in spite of the counter-weight, and the use of a less than 45 degree tilt.5. I completed some diagrams to explain how:A. In the case of the catapult method, one outer tube can be used with two see-saws provided that one outer weight is sufficient.B. As a perhaps preferable alternative to the catapult method, this devicemight be used in series, with more than one see-saw, each activating the nextin a succession, andC. With an efficient use of pulleys, the devices might be built in modularlooping series which might conceivably be made to reset themselves andcontinue moving (see Diagram 6).D. If it proves impossible to restart the system with the looping pulley process,a system might be devised whereby the difference weights are repositionedthrough a horizontal rotating wheel. Thus the force of the main weights needonly be put towards rotating the wheel, rather than using direct pulleys whichmay only have one-time value. This method is not illustrated as it seems like amethod of last resort.For a criticism of this design, see my Personal Critique.Motive Mass Machine Components               nathancoppedge.comWhat are the Prospects of a Motive Mass Machine as a Working PerpetualMotion Concept?
