@Chris - Weird, reminiscent of some kind of frame-dragging effect, or 'remanence' of the Higgs field? Sounds pretty whack either way, but hey who am i to talk..
The effect i'm using is utterly pedestrian and unremarkable in every way, except for the net result. It really is just a matter of force, mass and motion, with nothing exotic or in any way controversial or edgy involved. Remember, back in the 1700's there were no roller bearings available to Bessler - his wheels were incredibly noisy and lossy, with the entire wheel and axle turning as one piece, on open, steel trunnion bearings secured with leather straps. Back then, "friction" referred collectively to any and all forces retarding motion, not just what we would today categorise as entropic losses. 'Engineering precision' basically amounted to anything that didn't tear itself apart immediately. You had fairly intricate clockwork mechanisms - Bessler himself dabbled as a clock/watch builder - and with reference to his exploit, mentioned that flywheels were "not to be sneered at", however fine measurements (by modern standards) were beyond his means - and besides, there's nothing delicate or subtle about the exploit - it's a real keep-yer-fingers-clear brute, not some fragile balancing act outputting precarious millijoules of 'anomalous' energy. Again, 37 J becomes 72 J in just one second, with 34 J free and clear.. bite-yer-arm off stuff, this.
