[REBOL] Re: Compression

From: jeff:rebol at: 18-Apr-2001 8:53

Hello, EAT:

You've aroused my curiosity... how NEAR to perpetual motion are we talking? Like almost perpetual? Real close to perpetual? Just short of perpetual? I mean, how much closer, would you estimate, to perpetual motion can you attain with the device you mention than, say, your typical NON-perpetual motion device (like a YO-YO, for instance)? Like MUCH MUCH closer to perpetual? And when you say "perpetual motion generator" I have to ask, what does it generate perpetual motion for? How does the perpetual motion come out of the generator?

Your use of quotes around the word "today" confuses me. Usually quoting a word indicates something with questionable definition, like a jargon term, or something that is qualified in its usage. For example, I might say: This near perpetual motion generator should work "forever".

Certainly. By definition the impossible happens all the time! If it weren't impossible then it wouldn't not not be possible! -jeff
