The Great Machinery Death Cult…wake up!!!
As many who are regulars and many who have been passer’s by, have known that I’ve said, clearly, distinctly and without an iota of doubt, that I have the solutions to some of the world’s/mankind’s most pressing problems.
In real life, I get a lot of “Why don’t you just build it”, “why don’t you just do it”… and I point them to the fact, again, that two of the greatest minds in the last century, Tesla and Schauberger were ruth-lessly dealt with (read harassed, stolen from and finally killed off) and we are living in a world that has NOTHING from Viktor Schauberger and the worst (60 Hz, 220/110 volt AC, a killer, mad-maker, planetary destroyer of the highest order) from the stable of Nikolai Tesla.
Of course, in real life, I go and meet people, often very “Big” people and share the reality of these works with them.
NOT ONE has refuted what I’ve shown them as a global game-changer.
NOT ONE has been able to step up to do something with me.
I’m speaking of Millionaires, billionaires, captain’s of industry.
Here is a typical exchange…. this one with the just retired CEO of one of the world’s largest MotorCycle makers…
He was making some bleating noises about how he wanted to mentor the next big thing, the next great breakthrough…
So I wrote him, he wrote back a snapper, I wrote him back and silence…because the truth of this industrial world is hard to swallow with eyes open…
M, is India really ready for technology? How many people DIE every year and are maimed because of CompanyX products? Why has no one bothered to go back to the root de-sign? On whose table does that buck stop?
Shall we connect and try something radical?

I find your proposition bizarre! You want to throw the baby out along with the bath water. Just because a few people get into accidents, you are suggesting one stops making mobility vehicles! It is like saying stop growing bananas becaue soem one somewhere died choking, while eating a banana, or stop growing peantus because a few people have allergies!
What are you trying to get at? A return to cave dwelling or old stone age life? Of course we need sustainabilty and to convserve natural resources, reduce accidents etc. There are rational approaches to this issue Sorry, your ideas seem to be rather extreme and unworkable.
Greetings M, appreciate the response. I’ll ask you this…
Does/did X maintain an accident investigation statistic? See how many people are maimed and killed using X products? What were/are the primal and proximate causes of death/dis-memberment? What directions were taken in design & engineering to mitigate such?
Why are Leg-Guards dis-appearing into excuses for regulatory compliance only? If ABS is truly a life-saver, why is it a luxury and why has it taken so long to come to India? Consumer-death/Cost Arbitrage?
Why are such powerful motorcycles sold in India? Do we have roads/facilities/training to ensure safety?
Do motorcycle engineers know that a motorcycle is two gyroscopes attached to a frame? What, anywhere in the design of a motorcycle, allows for precession of a gyroscope as a prime force in a moving motorcycle? What happens when you turn a handle at any speed? (It falls over in the other direction, yes?).
Why are motorcycles licensed for driver only when a passenger is fully capable, with no input or controllability from the driver, of causing a “Crash”?
I can go on. I had the same discussion with the head of design of Company Y( Very large Automaker). For cars. He was alternately fascinated and struck dumb, but of course could not move an inch due to cognitive dissonance and momentum.
My ideas are a new paradigm and in India, I’ve only found push-back. X,Y,Z,…. and captains of industry. India is anti internal innovation, skin colour biased, especially in “real” engineering.
And companies have helped keep this unfair east west technology based arbitrage going. What basis otherwise for the ridiculous APE and other un-safe, noisy, polluting three wheelers? And the pathetic, Chinese import based electric vehicle industry.
One just needs to look at a motorcyle to realize nothing has changed.
Just steering dampers (cheap, easily available) would solve so much, no? Because you and I know you should not “turn” the handle at speed. Not too much anyways. Otherwise, why does every racing motorcycle have this simple, life-saving innovation?
Last question, please pass this on to X leadership if you can….
In India, with such a long rainy season, 1/2 inch gear change knoblets?
Those leg-guards? Why? So more vehicles can squeeze on a road, I understand, but what about the rider?
Brake pedals sans rubber?
Ad. Blitz showing stunt riding?
Again, appreciate the time you took to peruse my ideas.
We are at the crux of a massive shift(!) and in India/Indians are like deer in the western headlights. The numbers of dead and maimed are staggering. Staggering. To blame the users, when they are overwhelmed with Dhoom and Dhoom 2 and Stunts, stunts, more stunts, is dis-ingenuous. And I’m sure Bike companies paid top rupee to be “placed” in such movies.
But insurance provides a nice enough financial buffer I suppose, what is a lakh or 10 maimed for life or dead every year.
This is my life ladies and gentlemen. Not easy, always fascinating.
The person who takes the banal and ordinary and illuminates it in a new way can terrify. We do not want our ideas changed. We feel threatened by such demands. “I already know the important things!” we say. Then Changer comes and throws our old ideas away.
