"In 1712, a remarkable man named Johann Bessler unveiled an amazing invention. It was a Perpetuum Mobile - a Perpetual Motion Device - a wheel that spun after being set into motion until it was stopped with no mechanical input. It was capable of sustaining this motion and producing enough energy to complete "work" - meaning, literally, that there was something from nothing. Bessler never revealed his secret. He was hounded, mocked, and chased through a very rough and adventurous life. His secret died with him."-- Provided by publisher.
