On many an occasion, information which is not easily classified into an existing thread whizzes unexpectedly across the computer screen. I've sometimes posted these delights into existing threads that are loosely associated without too much regard. On several occasions I've deemed the subject-matter, while fascinating to me, to be a novelty of sorts that are better left uncommented.
But since I don't do facebook or twitter, sometimes these gems should be published. And furthermore the sweeping brush by which I judge what may or may not be interesting has its invariable fade; I cannot know how someone may react to the specific flavor of geekish interest I seem to fixate on.
So then, while I'm creating this thread with no expectation of participation by anyone lest they feel the need to share in the occasional unexpected that may compel them to share here as well. I certainly encourage participation from even the most meek; rest assured you need have no fear of ridicule as by posting here we all have agreed to leave authority over any issue at the door. The purpose of doing so is to permit the most interesting errors to have a place where they may live a moment of glory.
And my notes and points of interest as they are. I've underlines Dollard's recommended reading to gain an understanding of what specific men understood about electricity.
Animal legs jumping when electrically stimulated or during a T-Storm.
Galvani found an atmosphere around all metals.
Two shine sheets of metal together create an electrical condition between them.
Volta found electrolytes that extend these atmospheres. He compound sandwiched layer as cells. ->Electrical flame.
Components of electricity magnetic or electrostatic.
Faraday experimented with battery and sparks. he found magnetism appeared even without magnets present. He theorized that since the compass was on one end of the table and the electrical device is on the other effecting the compass, he concluded there was a fiberous structure responsible for the integration (iron filings create strings)
Is there an ether (Faraday idea) a spacial medium (an ultra rarified gas). Periodic table harmonics predicted pre-hydrogen elements.
Polarize the ether with a twisting vortex and lines of force would appear in the ether. An imbalance condition in a static ether. Found that windings multiply the current flow. => electric motor and telegraph relay.
Stienhill tried using the Earth as an electric pole. The circuit works with earth as part of an electric transmission structure.
Telegraph would clack because the earth was hit with solar flares.
Teleric currents grow when during solar events or earthly events.
Transatlantic cable opened new perspective. Maxwell made a discovery, using infintessimals: was that electricity and magnetism could effect mass and be measured by scales. He could quantify the amount of energy in electricity, if you multiply the factors it comes to be the same numbers: 1/c^2. He then theorized that the velocity of light (c) was related. He theorized two types of electric propagation, electro-magnetic and dielectric. This gave something the physicists could work with.
The undersea cable lost the original signal and produced only noise. => diffusion theory.
Heaviside took some of maxwells stuff, hated the calculus equations and tried to find algebraic expression. That the cable was propagating and electromagnetic form rather than an electric form. Telegraph equation.
Dissipation of magnetic component vs electric component. The cable had to permit equal dissipation to maintain a signal.
Maxwell gave engineers a way to quantify the condition of change (over time). JS bach composed music the englobed all mathematical explanations of electricity. Forkal got Bach’s work from the bin and classified it so it may be useful.
Faradays law is an examination of change over time instead of space.
Stienmetz the real electrical engineering view. His in-depth knowledge was accepted as it was hidden away in the algebra. He got away with it because of Tesla. Law of hysteresis.
Edison started as a telegraph operator. Edison was a folk-faraday in America.
Alexaderson radio. Alexanderson system is scalar, it isn’t effect by time.
Tesla motor uses 4 poles and not two (positive or negative polarities). This is easily confused with a bi-phase AC current where one phase is 90º (pi/2) out of phase. However it is notable that in this 90º configuration we can also express the polarity (poles) as 1, i, -1, and -i. This latter expression appears to more meaningfully touch on an aspect of electricity that goes beyond the understanding of phases... (Counter-space?)
Stienmetz 2nd book: Impulses waves and discharges
The theory and Calculation of Transient electoral phenomena
=> Electricity always being a 4 pole situation, exists in never any less than 2 dimensions at one time. There is no electricity unless you have magnetism and you have dielectricity. Until the two are united in some type of geometric configuration you do not have electricity.
unipolar => 1^+1 and 1^-1 multiplication and division (compounded exponential forms) Root(1) of 1 (1 and -1) root(1) of -1 (i and -i)
JJ Thompson (book: “Electricity and matter”) revitalized the Faraday theory. Lines of force where real, they exist. Discovered the concept of the electron.
Mass is a function of the velocity of the dielectric force lines?
The video ends on unipolar electrical energy representation that Dollard describes as the unification of electrical onjucates (capacitance and inductance). Describable as observing a resonant circuit built into one device. <= this is represented as LC/t^2... one of Teslas genial "discoveries". (AKA longitudinal electricity)
