Jean Perdrizet (1907-1975) - Deus ex machina


Mentalno zatiltani inženjer (jedan od onih koji cijeli život ostanu s mamom) otkrio je portal za druge dimenzije, skicirao izume koji nadilaze granice poznate fizike i donose kodove za ulazak u onostrane svjetove: nebeski esperanto, strojevi za komunikaciju s duhovima, roboti-svemirski veleposlanici...

Jean Perdrizet: Deus ex machina

Historians of twentieth-century science have not recorded the name of Jean Perdrizet (1907-1975) for posterity. Perdrizet was originally a deputy civil engineer with the Bridges and Highways department before mental health issues forced him out of his career. He proved a fascinating figure for the many speculative thinkers and scientists he met, describing himself as an inventor and tirelessly striving to awaken human consciousness. Like all great thinkers, he did so by exploring beyond the limits laid down by fields of research.
Perdrizet worked with subtle shifts of reality, transgressing primary utilitarian functionality and living in a mental realm devoted to his mother and the unmarried machines he tasked with enchanting the world. In many ways, his work is reminiscent of Camille Flammarion  [Mysterious Psychic Forces] for the way it reaches beyond the earthly realm, Raymond Roussel, for embracing the poetry of machinery, and Marcel Duchamp for exploring the aesthetics of movement. He submitted his designs to leading scientific institutions such as NASA, the French National Centre for Scientific Research, and the Nobel Prize committee, each invention an invitation to rethink the limits of physics by providing the code to another world. Inventions such as the Selenite Adam robots — humanity’s ambassadors to the cosmos — and his machines for communicating with ghosts and sidereal esperanto, designed to facilitate communication with extra-terrestrials, all proclaimed the abolition of death. Perdrizet died in 1975, three days after his mother. -

Coming from a Burgundian family of teachers, Perdrizet studied science and received his baccalaureate degree as a technical assistant in civil engineering. From 1934 to 1937 he was employed as a combat engineer in Grenoble, then at Électricité de France from 1944 to 1949. For health reasons he was forced to stop his work. Around 1955 he moved to Dignes and became an “inventor”. He started to invent prototypes and draw plans of machines to communicate with the ghosts or aliens : an “electric ouija”, a “thermoelectronic net for the ghosts”, a “Robot cosmonaut”, “space scale”, an “imagination cursor”, a “flying pipe”. He also invented a universal language, the so-called “T language”. He sent his studies to NASA, CNRS and the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences, in the hope of receiving the Nobel Prize. His works on blueprint paper mix formulas, sketches, technical indications, theories, religious or metaphysical ideas. His work attracted the attention of scientists but also of those who refuse the omnipotence of rationalist thought.
Never married, Jean Perdrizet lived all his life with his mother, whom he outlived by only three days.
