Keely and Perpetual Motion

"Keely did not seek to invent, nor did he claim to have invented, perpetual motion." [Snell Manuscript]

"Keely announced in 1888 that he had proved the uselessness of building engines to employ the ether as a motive power, which could only be used as a medium for the power which he had discovered, namely a condition of sympathetic vibration associated both positively and negatively with the polar stream. The revolving globe was never created to be the "source of power" and Keely never affirmed that he could produce with it "an indefinite amount of horse power without current expense." [KEELYS SECRETS - 1888]

"In the conception of any machinery heretofore, the medium for inducing a neutral center has never been found. If it had, the difficulties of perpetual motion seekers would have ended and this problem would have become an established fact, requiring only an introductory impulse to cause it to run for centuries. I did not seek to attain perpetual motion, but a circuit is formed that actually has a neutral center, which is in a condition to be vivified by my vibratory ether, and while under operation by said substance is really a machine that is virtually independent of the mass (or globe) and it is the wonderful velocity of the vibratory circuit which makes it so. Still, with all its perfection, it requires to be fed with the vibratory ether to make it an independent motor." [Keely, THE NEUTRAL CENTER]

Mr. Keely, at that time, wrote of those who called him a perpetual motion seeker:- "I console myself by thinking that if they were not ignorant of the grand truths which I am devoting my life to develop into a system, they could never bring forward such an absurd charge. Perpetual motion is against nature, and it is only by following nature's laws that I can ever hope to reach the goal I am aiming to reach." [Helpers on the Road and Hinderers]
