Extracts

 

......Around Renaissance, science and religion were in conflict in Europe. Scientist found fallacies in religious doctrines based on faith, on the other hand, priests were not prepared to accommodate new knowledge claimed to be based on rational observation and experiments with nature by scientist that challenged doctrines of religion.  At this point, I would like to say that, owing to the particular limitations of religion and science and conflict between them, there arose a third group comprising of self-styled, energetic and ambitious people, this group was dissatisfied with both of them. This group of people also wanted an answer to the fundamental questions of life and the universe, an absolute answer in the form of a working reality by creating devices by imitating diverse mechanism of nature to accomplish a particular task.  They were dissatisfied with religion because, although it gave such an answer, it was not one that appealed to reason. It appealed to faith. But when they turned around and looked at science, although it gave answers that were verifiable to some extent and appealed to reason, those answers were not always correct and absolute. Research had still not reached the fundamental level of reality. To describe reality of working of universe, scientists advanced clock metaphor that required rewinding by god. This was rejected by perpetual motionists in favour of their metaphor of perpetual motion machine which freed god from labors of the rewinding the world machine as they discovered a self propelled, self regulated and self sustained universe. This group did not want to wait for science to provide answers, instead they themselves attempted to find an answer to those fundamental questions through reasoned consideration and invention, without the need for theoretical framework. This group of people was best represented by ancient alchemist, practitioners of Natural Magick, perpetual motionist and virtuoso. This book presents you complete history of perpetual motion since Renaissance during which perpetual motion developed in an atmosphere of freedom, by this I mean, there were no fallacious laws of science to suppress the zeal of the perpetual motionist. Perpetual motion invented by Edward Somerset, Cornelius Drebbel, Orffyreus and many more other inventors have been discussed in a critical manner. The volume provides a rich and lively account of alchemists, perpetual motionists and their writings. Many among them were unacademic, unscrupulous, unprofessional, turbulent, and unsettled.  In medieval   times their “Natural Magick” in all diverse forms, including perpetual motion and alchemy, paved the way for the development of science at great lengths. Volume also deals with patent history of perpetual motion and describes various patents filed during 17, 18 and 19th century…..

Hopefully, you will agree with my views that you will find in the pages of my EEC series of books but I am also equally aware that you may not agree with me on certain points discussed in these volumes. Before arriving at any definite conclusions to anything published in these books, I shall advise you to do your own research & contribute your own unique creative insights. My views and thoughts contained in these books are mostly anti scientific establishment, non-dogmatic. They contain explorations of ideas largely found in Eastern ancient Wisdom like Vedas etc, as well as my own creative ideas with freedom of thought. According to doctrine of “Syadvada” in Jainism, no truth is final, therefore, never bound yourself to saying this is the only truth. Truth is always plural and that which is plural is not the “absolute truth”!

Dr. Ramesh Menaria's entire EEC series of books with 18 titles fills up more than 7000 pages. Contents and page numbers of EEC series of books are subject to minor changes as all the 18 manuscripts are being edited and reedited until they finally get published by Deva publishers.

NB: This site will go on line long before all possible topics have been treated; please forgive me if you seek information on a given topic and I have no information there yet.
