I am bringing this drawing back into the discussion just to ask one last question.
In the drawing there are twelve (12) buckets on the right side. Just for discussion each bucket has a lifting force of 100-foot pounds. 12 buckets times 100 = 1200-foot pounds of lifting force.
1200-foot pounds of lifting force can produce more energy at any one moment in time than 100-foot pounds;
Once all the buckets are full and this machine is running, the process continues to produce 1200-foot pounds of force if you continue to fill one (1) bucket at the bottom in sequence with the rest.
YES or NO?

I would say yes.

and an extra word

no.

The buckets are sitting in water. Any water “in” a bucket will be held up by the water below it.

Nothing will happen

What gives it motion?....12 buckets full of water in water will weigh nothing effectively.......or have I missed something?

They are not full of water, they are full of air

I think the system is that the inverted buckets are filled with air at the base of the conveyor, hence getting the thing in motion.
He can rest assured though, that it will require more energy to pump air down to the bottom than he'll extract from the system.
Just another perp-motion nonsense.

These threads always make me think of doc from back to the future. I imagine his shed/lab from the first one.

Got more chance with time travel than perpetual motion me thinks

It can't work otherwise the universe would Hve destroyed it self a long time ago

I love people trying. And hope one day somebody clocks it. But brainier people than us discovered the laws of physics that prevent it. And only brainier people than us will find a way to beat the laws.

(Worth noting some laws have been disproved now - but not theory or relativity just yet)

I've read this 3 times and I still don't understand it how is this going to work?
