Note: I wrote this on my earlier blog hosted as http://parallelspirals.blogspot.com/. I recovered the text from the WayBack Machine. This post appeared on Ocober 16, 2006 as per the timestamp. I’m trying to collect here again all my old writings spread on various blogs.
A PMM is a machine which can output work for no input of energy. That’s sort of like your car running without petrol.
Is the Earth a PMM?
Is the Earth rotating without any input of energy? If it gets an input of energy, where does it get that from? I understand that the Earth revolves due to the effect of gravity as a force causing the Earth to move around it. But how does the Earth rotate?
If the Earth is a PMM, it violates the laws of thermodynamics. If the Earth can violate the laws of thermodynamics, why can’t we? Rules are meant to be broken, right?
If there is a perfectly scientific explanation to this, kindly send me a link in the comments section. I’m too lazy to search on the Internet or do research on what I think? If you want to make this a PhD thesis, go ahead.
