A good explanation about the synchronization of pendulums(huygens)for those interested.....i tried in the past to sustain two pendulums keyed to a fixed torsion bar,with both pendulums opposing each other not to prove synchro but as a means for longitivity of "swing"...alas with limited success,possibly in hindsight i should have preloaded the torsion bar before fitting the pendulums.

Sometimes when i think of Bessler and his Wheel the Hindu idea of Maya comes to mind ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_(illusion)#The_Upanishads
Quote:
Hendrick Vroom explains, "The term Maya has been translated as 'illusion,' but then it does not concern normal illusion. Here 'illusion' does not mean that the world is not real and simply a figment of the human imagination. Maya means that the world is not as it seems; the world that one experiences is misleading as far as its true nature is concerned."
Lynn Foulston states, "The world is both real and unreal because it exists but is 'not what it appears to be'."
According to Wendy Doniger, "to say that the universe is an illusion (māyā) is not to say that it is unreal; it is to say, instead, that it is not what it seems to be, that it is something constantly being made. Māyā not only deceives people about the things they think they know; more basically, it limits their knowledge."

Māyā pre-exists and co-exists with Brahman the Ultimate Principle, Consciousness. Maya is perceived reality, one that does not reveal the hidden principles, the true reality.

Yes, we have corresponded in the past. He apppears to be a clever and highly educated man and his theories are therefore all the more inexplicable given his qualifications.
