Question??

What's the long metal pole by Ed's flywheel?

  • It's the body of St. John the Baptist. The head has been removed, as he was beheaded by order of Herod, King of Judea in the story that symbolizes the so called "achemical beheading". The real day on which this happened long ago, precisely on September 11 in the Gregorian Calendar, is celebrated today to remember the moment in which the royalty of Judea undertook the task of hiding the technology that almost destroyed the planet 2000 years earlier.

    You have a funny nickname, I'll make a bag with you.
  • Wtf?? Is it a capacitor?

    It's nice to have a few images of Eds Flywheel over time
    Close to 1950

    1950

    1956

    "Most FES systems use electricity to accelerate and decelerate the flywheel, but devices that directly use mechanical energy are being developed "

  • I don't suppose anyone would be willing to share the Sketchup model of Coral Castle?
  • wasn't it wonderful, I never knew the exact position of the flywheel in the tool room , and the view from the door is excellent, looking at it from my perspective I saw the spatial oddity in the head to hat ratio which is clearly well off, allowing for hes older and in so being sympathetic its moreso symbolic maybe , as it is a staged photo. with the deity type light around his head area in mind while he holds it, as turn... question for anybody; did ed have a visitors book dvk

  • In the older images it shows four separate pieces of? circled red





  • @dvk
    As far as I know there wasn't one for Ed, however I have read articles of guests signing a visitors book post 1951
  • dvk I never thought of it but I bet Ed did have a visitors book that would be great to see. Dante those pieces on the flywheel appear to be capping the bolts, bridging them, the spacing seems to match?... Sketchup models for Rock Gate and Ed's Place have been Greatly improved I still have a lot of details to add but majority of the work is done :) :) I hope to release updates sooner than later...
  • Actually the more I look the bolts are bare, it just appears like there is something darker in those spots because that is where the outer cavities of the clover are ... I think

    You're right, especially when looking at the picture that includes his hat
    looking forward to the vids
  • I think a real prize is tucked away in a old filing cabinet at the legal end or would have been , via the exec , writing to make appointments etc , lists of wishes and wants, a trove of priceless graphology, the visitors book may have had a little forward or inducement as it is clear ed had a fondness of fun hints and comments that stir the mind , reader if for any reason you etc , with all his writings he must have developed a cognitive style. without doubt a window into the man.... all the best. dvk
