Hey /lit/,

Is this guy a genius? He's written 50+ books on math, physics, and philosophy.

Says he's able to design a perpetual motion device and solved all paradoxes in philosophy.

http://www.amazon.com/Nathan-Coppedges-Perpetual-Machine-Designs/dp/1495373835/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1430796502&sr=1-1&keywords=nathan+coppedge


Here's the blurb:

>Nathan Coppedge has been hailed as one of the top three theorists of perpetual motion, the others being Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein. This is the long-awaited print form of Nathan's designs, including all variations of the first twelve concepts Nathan thought up. Also included are the 'early failures,' 'perpetual motion oddities', and 'apparatures' or mobile building concepts. This 5th Edition has been updated to include a new introduction, as well as over 20 new pages on original design principles in a new section. Recent devices are added periodically.

>"I have two major experiments which seem to vindicate exceptions in the laws of physics. I also have minor experiments that confirm things we should already have known."

Laws of physics are getting fucked up the ass all day erry day these days so science hasn't objectively proven shit.

The whole idea of science is actually testing things all the time using new methods and theories. Just because a theory is ironclad for hundreds of years, doesn't mean it can't be proven wrong when the field advances.

That being said, I've never heard anything about this guy before anywhere, and he made a lot of outlandish claims so the whole thing's probably a hoax or joke.

God In The Box - Poem by Nathan Coppedge

Autoplay next video
The only problem is, we don't know.
Everything else can be determined.
Good things in life = good god.
Bad things = bad god.
It might not be the real god.
Then we can blame the god in the box.

Its a philosophy game to play god in the box
the unseen cause that movens the spheres
the secret answer that no living man knows
if a man has ears let him hear:
its music that issues from god-in-the-box.

Its a dilittante's game to play god in the box
he shows you some colors that move you to paint
a canvas. Brilliant they say, and all you respond
'Its art for art's sake. Talk to god-in-the-box! '

Its a novelist's game to play god in the box
you ask them why, and they reply sotto voce
'A character's game is a novelist's choice'

Its a human game, this god-in-the-box
but you ask any one and he says that he's lost.

But even that answer comes from god-in-the-box!
