John Dee on Astronomy

Out here in New York State, I am studying a book called John Dee on Astronomy , translated by Shumaker and Heilbron, which I think has some interesting ideas. I'll try to list them here. According to Dee: 1. In the distance until the moon (approx 52 earth radii according to his calculations), there ...

Re: The Duality of Magnetic and Electric rotation

1. c-magnetic rotation is observed as m-electric rotation, with twice as many units as m-magnetic rotation, doubling the maximum magnitude (electric rotation). 2. m-magnetic rotation interacts as c-electric rotation, needing twice as many units--but appearing as half-steps, rather than doubling (sp...

Re: Photon 2.0

It makes sense that visible light and infrared pass through the atmosphere, but I have to wonder what purpose Nature has for that big gap in the RF band. It has been my experience that things that exist in Nature, exist for a reason. It is also curiously the "human" scale... since we are usually ac...

Re: Photon 2.0

You're right, transparency is an important point... do you know if there is a list of substances anywhere that shows what is transparent to which part of the radiation, and which part it blocks? I'll keep looking to see if I can find something...

Re: Photon 2.0

Also, excerpt from a discussion with Doug Marsh: The combination of reflection and refraction is certainly taught when a beam enters a flat surface such as water from the air above. Yet the potential significance of this basic concept seems to be ignored in the prism. The refracted beam through the ...

Re: Photon 2.0

Here's another one for you... I was using my prism for those experiments in the book you loaned me and placed the prism on the page (C)... when you do that, the black/white edges remain sharp with no colors, either in the "direct view" (A, looking down at an angle) or in its reflection (B, looking ...

Re: Photon 2.0

If you pass an image through a prism, like a photograph from a slide projector, what happens? The exact same thing happens as when you look at an image through a prism, except that the red and blue edges are reversed. If I look at an image of a white elephant on a black background through a prism, ...

Re: Photon 2.0

Chris, I got in touch with Doug Marsh of the Tao of Colors... had bumped into that website independently and found it very useful. He gave me some more references to add to the study. There are several features of light that have to be incorporated: 1. When interacting with transparent slabs, there ...

Re: The Sun as a Light-Emitting Diode (LED)

Excellent observation on the LED evolution sequence. Makes a lot more sense why BluRay came last! Shows that if there are some natural patterns, they show up in all domains. It is also quite possible that the "junction" is much bigger than what we might expect, as a huge zone: from one end of the ju...

Re: Diodes and Transistors

Also, why Schottky diodes do not exhibit such rapid step recovery while PN diodes do ? In Schottky diode, there is more "elbow room" because of the large positive displacements of metals. Which means the backwash has more displacement to dissipate in, while in a smeiconductor p-n- junction, it is l...
