A long ago, in the art and history museum of Neuchâtel, I met androids made 250 years ago. These ancient tireless efforts gave me a higher goal. I started my personal research that determined a high target for historical horologist-mechanicians.


My artistic approach is to open new avenues with exploring methods of expression "retro-futuristic" inherited on different cultures, and inspired by the spirit of horologists like Breguet and of mechanical artists. I autonomously undertook a new project from scratch and have been preparing for it with the theme of "What is human work?". This initiative builds a bridge between tradition and technological innovation. 


Ilya Prigogine said in his book "Order out of Chaos", "We believe that we are heading toward a new synthesis, a new naturalism. Perhaps we will eventually be able to combine the Western tradition, with its emphasis on experimentation and quantitative formulations, with a tradition such as the Chinese one, with its view of a spontaneous, self-organizing world. "


While addressing global environment sustainability with a high perspective overlooking the whole world, I've independently engaged on integrating intangible cultural heritage and esoteric educational theories and methods related to medicines in the east and the west. Such as, European mechanical arts called Automata-Horology, Chinese internal martial arts called Kung fu.


In the 18th century, two Horologist - Automata artists, Henri-Louis Jaquet-Droz and his partner Jean-Frédéric Leschot, while feeding back the know-how gained in the Android production, had created aesthetic prosthetic limbs for people with disabilities.


So, I undertook a new project to realize the will of those ancient dreamers in order to realize filial piety for their works, and properly inherited the predecessors’ will. I invented the next generation ecological vehicles by using my experiences in supervising Swiss manufacturing. As well as I had important work for the earth and humanity. I made a discovery that there exists a mathematical theorem and formulas that integrates every spirit voluntary movements that exercises all terrestrial bodies and gives life to inanimate matters. 


This is also an invention of a universal biomechanical link mechanism that brings infinite applications. It's the first universal perfect machine element in human history which surpasses the conventional functions such as rotating elements like wheels and propellers invented in ancient times or robotics joint torque control. 


It is also a quantification of spiritualist dualism bringing a new wave to metrology in biotechnology. 


The renaissance humanist aimed to revitalize humanity by gaining universal education from classical studies. This could not stop Catholic corruption, but instead led to a Protestant Reformation. Galileo Galilei, who appeared after Jean Calvin's generation, developed an astronomical telescope and a microscope by applying the telescope invented in the Netherlands. He also invented a thermometer. It was Santorio Santorio that immediately applied this to medicine and invented humanity's first medical thermometer. Descartes and Spinoza were also active during this era.


So, The voluntary movement formula I found is also able to be used for the research of the Cardio-Respiratory control in vertebrates, cardiac pump function and beat rhythm, blood flow etc. Thanks to that, living organisms regulate the sympathetic nerve activity which responses for maintaining the tension and excitement, and also keep immune function to enhance the natural healing force.


Then I also discovered a fundamental theory which is able to explain well this technological innovation among the philosophies advocated by Abraham-Louis Breguet the Horologist - Mechanician two hundred years ago.


So, people say that my work is like the next generation of Leonardo da Vinci.


In order to demonstrate the infinite applications, the holistic work plan are divided in the 10 work packages, and designed the basic applications of voluntary movement, introduced visually : « »


We have now reached the one singular point.


Over the past few years, while introducing application examples in the world, I've gained world-wide understanding little by little.

In January 2013, I found a microfilm of an essay written by Abraham-Louis Breguet, a Swiss horologist in the 18th century, in the underground storage room of the French National Library. So, the French government welcomed my business and allowed all the actions concerning my project for three years. "Essay about the animal force and the principle of voluntary movement" - Abraham Louis Bréguet (1811) : 

« »


In his essay, I found a new theory of voluntary movement and animal force. In this way, I decided to promote a new research and development by combining his theory in my invention based on a midway of physics, physiology and philosophy. This is my philosophical approach.


A-L Breguet paid attention to the movement of rotation that appears within nature and its phenomena - he invented a mechanism called "Tourbillon" which consists of a regulator producing constant speed while removing the effects of gravity. His descendant, Louis-Charles Breguet inherited A-L Breguet's insight into the planet's environment and the voluntary movement of animals. He also invented the gyroplane to fly in the sky by the rotational movement as the same principle and he found a formula for Aircraft range & endurance. In my work I focus on turbulence as well, a phenomenon that's also related to the rotation of the Earth and which I believe affects the universal biomechanics of the voluntary movement. Therefore I wish to explore this concept further.

« »


On September 17, 2013 - Abraham-Louis' death anniversary – I was granted the honor of an invitation to visit the Breguet Museum at the Place Vendôme in Paris with its director Mr. Emmanuel Breguet, historian and member of Breguet family's seventh generation. We discussed A-L. Breguet's new unknown theory and I told him I wished to continue his ancestor's study.


I think there is a deep relationship between human inventions and biological evolution. The more trials and efforts are given, the more sophisticated will the inventions be. For people's health and progress of humanity, I do inventions.


I'm reaffirming a philosophy based on the theory of animal force proposed by A-L Breguet. He explained that planetary revolutions could be the sole source of all the movements of inanimate matter, and of those which are exercised by all terrestrial bodies.


Planetary rotation and revolution appear universally as a fluid phenomenon typified by the vortex in natural environments. When animals generate their own motions, they naturally obtain the movement of the planet. For example, when carps climb the waterfall, they use turbulence phenomena as a stepping stone. That depends on the rotation of Earth.


The rhythm of the planet's revolution affects all biological and social activities while regulating to keep the constant speed. But in the current industry, the cycle of mass production and mass consumption are too accelerated. It is largely deviated from the original rhythm of the earth. I will therefore actively encourage the importance of integration with the global environment, while suppressing  the excessive acceleration of wasteful mass production and mass consumption,  I will promote the flexibility manufacturing system to deal with various types of production of small amounts.


To that end, I provide a versatile straightforward biomechanical element having infinite applications. and I work to create new job opportunities and to diversify a market approach to various manufacturers internationally. Craftsmanship will be once again recognised and restored.


« All bodies on Earth are constantly filled with movement and force, as the fountain we said always filled with water: the fountain is in equilibrium with the source, the bodies are with the movement of the earth. Among the diversity of bodies that are on the surface of the globe, there are those who, being organized and talented from an internal power that we called will, have, relative to the movement of the earth, the same disposition to the fountain relatively to the water of the inexhaustible source.


The planetary revolutions could be the unique source of all the movements of inanimate matter, and those who exercise all terrestrial bodies. On the other hand, we know that animated matter is endowed with another active principle called will. The link that binds the spirit to the material; because the will is a faculty of the spirit, has access to the movement, which is a faculty rather than a proprietary of the material.


The will is the extreme ring of the intellectual chain on the material side , the movement also is the extreme ring of the material chain on the spirit side, and the linking of these two rings binds the morale to the physics. (This will form a phantom limb syndrome.) the movement is indestructible, and can say with accuracy that is not and that's all. As a universal agent, as energetic and inexhaustible, whose constant action gives life to material, and maintains, as it were, out of nothing, must be immaterial, and appears to be the soul of the universe.


The will and the movement are two powers of a species, if not identical, at least the most analogous in the series of agents of nature. »  - "Essay about the animal force and the principle of voluntary movement", Abraham Louis Bréguet (1811)

Research in biomechanics of Chinese martial arts and Development a method for assisting invention

Field of study : History and Philosophy of Oriental Science and Technology

I also began to learn biomechanics through Chinese martial arts. It is Tai Chi master Cornelia Gruber who kindly bestowed me with the opportunity of conversion of a big idea. I developed a new method for assisting invention through spending a unique time with her and German-style board gamers, trained a generic and minimalist decision-making process for immediate adaptation under various different regulatory circumstances.


I also learned the human duty through the life perspectives of pointed entrepreneurs like her who influenced me. Innovative business entails various risks. Therefore I'm always thinking of an excuse for escape. However, in the end I'm brought up to face the front obstacles. So I have forward momentum to go no matter what. It is an insatiable spirit of inquiry.


Master Cornelia had an ex-husband who was a pottery artist who died of intractable disease. Her ex-husband suffered from an insoluble illness that made his whole body muscles go out of control like Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). She was nursing him for decades using her Tai Chi force. I was invited to her school, I read various literature, studied and practiced. In addition to Tai Chi Chuan, Chinese philosophy(Yin Yang 陰陽, Five elements 五行, Bagua 八卦, Taoism 道教), Qi-gong, Wing Chun martial arts that Ip Man and Bruce Lee preached. On the last day, when her ex-husband launched fireworks , I decided to make the invention to help disabled people. So, In developing the service to help disabled persons, I frequently visited the rehabilitation center and observed organizations and companies that support people who are aiming for social integrations.


Conventional researchers have given too much boost to physiological assumptions only, and have followed studies based on statistical points of view because of the needs in computer engineering. As a result, they have gone astray in the labyrinth of metaphysics. So they could never clarify the essence of the movement by sampling and analyzing the motion capturing data.


So, I undertook a new research project from 2012. I tried an agglutination of the mathematical philosophical theories of two historic intangible cultural heritages that are related to medical technologies in the east and the west such as European mechanical arts called Automata - Horology, and Chinese internal martial arts called Kung-Fu. By chance, in Switzerland, in addition to Western scientific medicine which was created by Hippocrates of Kos as a doctor in Greece and was developed by Protestantism, there are many alternative medicine exists For examples, a heretic treat technique practiced in the community of Christian antiquity, "The secret reciters treating burns". Also such as healers recommended by university hospitals who have a skill to find the affected part by the special perception and insight ability.  Civilians believe well and use their services well. I learned about the possibility of exceeding common sense.


The best quote in the letter that Jeff Bezos offered me in 1999 was also that.

"If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it." - Albert Einstein 


In this way, my first specific invention was made.  After a lot of patience in difficult situations,  I got a premonition of feasibility when I watched the sprint in the olympic game of August in London. In November, the first invention of a human running movement mechanism was completed, and in December 2012 the invention of the fundamental biomechanical link mechanism was completed.


Then I have discovered that there is a theorem and mathematical formulas that integrate every spirit voluntary movements that exercises terrestrial bodies. So I became able to easily acquire "ideal (I call it the will of the universe)" movement models. This means that the voluntary movement of all fuselages and limbs of animals, can be translated in a circular motion at a constant speed.In other words, mathematically, we have taken full control of the behavioral principle of terrestrial organisms such as humans as well as other animals and plants.


Work Plan 2. Biomechanical simulation of humans

            Task 2.3 : Funkyman Running « »

This mechanical element can accelerate his foot when kicking the ground, nevertheless, the source of its rotation keeps constant speed.



Consequently, I can see that this mechanism shows the best ideal more than the actual performance of the athlete. I think it is the will of the universe. If it is true, a similar mechanism might be applied to all body parts. In this way, I also succeed to apply the same principle of the mechanism to the body and arms.

Also to other animals. afterwards, I realized examples of biomechanical locomotions of fishes, 4 legged animals, birds, insects, on the basis of the same theorem.  I have found that the simplest comprehensive mechanism has the possibility of unlimited application.

In 1546, John Dee produced "Peace" an Athenian Old Comedy written by the Greek playwright Aristophanes. So, he made a mechanical scarab and created a scene in which the scarab carrying ration and a person and flies to Zeus's palace. That was the first time that a witty machine appeared on the British stage.
