Self-Motive Power

From Kook Science

Classified advertisement in the St. Louis Republic for 25 Aug. 1903

Self-Motive Power is any method of energy generation wherein the energy (as motive power) input is at least equal to the energy (as motive power) output, allowing the energy output to feedback into the operation as a self-sustaining system; and, as this method is self-sustaining, it may be said to operate in Perpetual Motion (or, at least, until material components break down); and if this method produces more energy than was initially input, that excess is Free Energy. Classical thermodynamics and its inheritors hold that any such methods are impossible within physical systems as they have been understood, as energy cannot be created, only transformed, and that any energy input will be transformed (entropy) into both heat and motive power (work), reducing the amount of motive power available to enable the continuing action of an operation.
