• 'I know a heavier weight can lift a lighter weight up a slope. I know a lighter weight can lift a heavier weight when it has sufficient leverage. That much is proven, and that is the basis of the design.'
- -Nathan Coppedge, conversation with an engineer, October 2017
• 'In terms of perpetual motion, a balance with two equal weights can move from rest, because the position of disorder has the same exact average altitude as the position of order. If the average altitude is the same, there is no net loss of gravity force, and so disorder and order must be treated as the same. But this means it is possible to get motion from rest at no net loss of altitude, which should indicate perpetual motion. In physics it seems to me people arbitrarily conclude that it is only at rest when it stops moving. But, to be fair, if the motion requires no net loss of altitude, then we are still getting gravity from nowhere, if what we mean by gravity is physical motion.'

• 'Doesn't it make sense that if a wheel moves horizontally, it requires half of gravity? After all, it falls between full gravity + kinetics to lift it and zero gravity - kinetics to drop it. Therefore, rolling a wheel should require zero kinetics.'

• 'This is more like Pi the movie OF Pi the movie. (But not the Life of Pi, FYI) .'
- -Nathan Coppedge, message to a critic, October 2017
• 'Its not infinitely bad, its not infinitely good: its me trying to figure out my own life.'
- -Nathan Coppedge, in response to mother wondering what was going on, October 2017
• 'The most exciting thing is not that we made a difference, but that time-travel is possible at all, and life and people on Earth are more exciting than we thought.'
- -Nathan Coppedge, October 2017
• 'Would you believe in perpetual motion if you knew my experiment worked? Maybe you would have more reason than before, at least.'
- -Nathan Coppedge, November 2017
• 'Metaphysics is the natural extension of physics for when the laws of physics vary. Metaphysics is the continuum of physical dimensions under all real contingencies, whether accepted or unaccepted by science. However obscure, however interesting.'
- -Nathan Coppedge, November 2017
• 'The new version of anti-radicalism is to not believe in its metaphysical possibility, as well as not believing in metaphysics, so that the metaphysical impossibility is impossible-to-be-impossible, and yet, impossible. Which is itself impossible, but does not render the relevant facts impossible.'
- -Nathan Coppedge, November 2017
• 'Why are particles spherical? In effect, the objects are time-traveling. The abbreviation is that things get what they want (like the Law of Attraction) , and spherical options are what remains of the beginning of desire. The exceptions (in the gravity-well of potential time travel) are things that are fulfilling their desires. The beginnings of an atomic theory of consciousness.'
