The Impossible Machine
CALCULATING EQUILIBRIUM
Ve = volitional energy
(# simultaneous modular units)
LV = locational volitions
(stems in 1 cycle / # cycles to
return to the starting position)
VE = volitional equilibrium
stems = # simultaneous i.e.
distinct paths
Ve / LV = VE,
A COMPARISON OF MY CONCEPTS ACCORDING TO THIS
EQUATION:
Repeating Lever Type 1:
Ve = 1
LV = (1/1 or 8)
VE = 1 or 8 (don’t know if all the passive balls in the wheel
should count…)
Repeating Lever Type 2:
Ve = 1
LV = (1/1)
VE = 1
Motive Mass It 2
Ve = 1
LV = (1/2)
VE = 2
GravBuoy 2
Ve = 60
LV = (1/1)
VE = 60
Tilt Motor
Ve = 1
LV = (1/1)
VE = 1

Note that larger values indicate greater
unbalance, in the sense that more modular
units or subcycles are required without any
necessary additional stems in the cycle.
Note that so far none of the designs use
multiple stems, although the MMM and the
Repeat Lever 1 make use of multiple
subcycles.
Conceivably a device with stems equal to
subcycles would have superior equilibrium
to the Motive Mass Machine.
