Re: DARPA has an ambitious $1.5 billion plan to reinvent electronics

Hey, I'll send them an email and tell them I'll personally do it for HALF that price!

I suggest perusing Melvin A Cook's book, Prehistory and Earth Models.
On order, along with the sequel. Looking forward to reading it.

Re: Magnetism in Dielectric field

Can you test with non chrome coated magnets? If I recall, awhile back you suggested that chrome was involved in making ball lightning. I'm wondering if thats giving different results from an uncoated magnet I used uncoated, cylindrical magnets and ran some tests. (Not as strong.) The magnet, taped ...

Magnetism in Dielectric field

More experimental weirdness! My setup is a 450kv electrostatic generator that has a ground wire attached to a smaller, metal sphere on an insulated handle (so you don't get shocked). Under normal conditions, it will throw a bright spark 3-4 inches. Experiment #1: thorium 232 calibration disk I used ...

Radioactive Decay

From what I recall of my partial reading, didn't he describe more of a channeling than a decaying process? Channeling might narrow down the possibilities of what's going on Yes, LeBon considered radiation to be a "renewable" resource as it is not from the atom, itself, but from the environment the ...

Re: Magnetism

“Octonions are to physics what the Sirens were to Ulysses,” Pierre Ramond, a particle physicist and string theorist at the University of Florida, said in an email. Great quote. And this is exactly what I am doing with RS2: To reconstruct particle physics, Furey uses the product of the four division...

Electrostatic field???

If an electrostatic charge is flowing across the surface of insulators, like "air" and glass, then WHY is the neon INSIDE this vacuum-sealed, glass tube lighting up? The end of the tube is about a foot from the sphere. (The plastic tube that holds the globe is lit from below; just the way they make ...

Re: Dielectric Fields

I'm curious if the duration of time where you observed CPM spikes was the same length as the magnetic fallout duration disabling your electronics. I expect you didn't sit there 12 hours in a row testing to see if it was still reproducible though! It caught me by surprise and the spikes were only a ...

Re: Dielectric Fields

Been running more dielectric field experiments... giving me some unusual and unexpected results. I was using Geiger counter alignment disks (thorium 232) that each produce about 60 CPM (1 per second), so the meter was clicking irregularly, varying from about 110-125 CPM, but steady. Fluxuations occu...

Ice Penitentes

I thought these magnetic spikes looked familiar... turns out that at high latitudes--where the Earth's magnetic poles tend to be--there exists a phenomena known as "ice penitentes," for which there are many theories about--but I don't think anyone considered the idea that it may be the magnetic infl...
