as you so correctly point out science being a human activity is a reflection of human strenghts and failings.science is opinion not revealed truth and thus i must judge the value of the opinion by the character of the scientist. thank you

Prior to the Time Mr. Minto made the science magazines I was playing around with such a thing. I was always amazed with the dunking drinking bird. so I made a double propane unit. the bottom one faced the sun the top one was shielded from the sun. It flipped.. I was amazed. Then i went circular.. I had 4 sets on a 4 foot wooden disk. it was slow.. and i think it has potential. the fact is that such unit could power a blower on heater. Minto was on the right track. But is very inefficient. God bless the guy.. The concept can open windows to let out heat, etc. It is a matter of finding the right application. a hot spring.. would be a way to go. The bottom line is we have to use less energy. A great aplication would be to make big tires using this technology and pick up the heat from the sun from the asphalt.. a 15 foot tire moving a 2 feet a second.. it would run better at night as the night air would be cooler.

The comments page said that any questions should be directed here, so thats why I'm asking them here. I'm currently doing a school project concerning electricity and magnetism, and I would like to know how a radio functions (namely, how that "tank" circuit thingy-ma-bob functions when tuning), and also, how a microphone functions. While I know how it actually works, I'm unsure about the positioning of the components in the casing. A diagram would help. Also, I love that "bottle" electric motor shown on that site. Are there any more electric motors which are different to the conventional sort? Finally, im only thirteen, so don't laugh. What does a transistor actually do? (this question ties in with functioning of a radio). Thanx in advance for any help to be posted to leong.xu at paradisenet.nz If the first time you read the above message is after 06 December, 2002, please disregard it. Please dont send spam. Steve

One more traffic wave rule: "If you are in a lane which will vanish, match the speed of the lane you will merge into long before the merge." Many merging slowdowns are made worse by people "jumping the queue" ("jumping in line" in American). People who think ahead are in the correct lane early or merge early, but then get slowed down by people who pass the stopped traffic and merge closer to the start of the line. If you think ahead and let a gap open ahead of you in the lane which will vanish, the remaining lane will speed up as fewer people jump ahead. It actually happens long before you reach the merge point, as not only the last-second mergers were slowing the line...those that jump only part of the line also contribute until your gap includes them -- you'll see the line actually speeds up to the speed of the traffic within the bottleneck even before all the line jumpers have finished merging ahead of you. I've been using your "traffic waves" calming for 20 years, and this line-jumping-stopping rule for several years..and have observed others now doing it (particularly professional drivers). I also position myself between two cars in the adjoining lane, in position for merging to the right, and I usually see that the driver behind me to the right realizes what I am doing and lets me in easily when I merge as my lane ends. I think truckers have been doing this for a while, as I often see trucks straddling both lanes to cause the same effect...but straddling is illegal, while staying in your lane is not. If I'm in the lane which will NOT end, if I see a trucker in the left lane begin to match my speed I leave a gap so he can see that I'm leaving room for him...often he'll stay in his lane and merge at the last second.

Yay for software engineers (i am currently doing a software engineering degree and everybody thinks it's just IT - except for people doing IT who think SE is not as good). I liked the explanation of how aeroplanes wings work - i windsurf and have never been able to understand how the idea of flat bottomed wings can apply to a sail which uses the same theory but is a thin sheet which is convex on one side and concave on the other, or a fin which is symmetrical - it certainly doesn't make sense with the theory they teach in schools!

Thank you for your Taos Hum site. This last year I've started hearing a mysterious vibrational sound at home that others can't hear. I did a quick google search for extra sensitive hearing & learned that I'm not alone and other also hear a mysterious humming. I feel better already knowing that this is not just me, but a global phenomena. Thanks for putting this information out there.

your description of smoke ring travel is incorrect. It is not just momentum which moves it is the air within the vortex which moves. If momentum was all that moved the smoke in the smoke ring would be left behind.

You site is interesting. Have a question. We proscratinated putting grounds on our flat-wire tv antenna hookup and then forgot. It built up a lot of "static" ruining our reception (not to mention the dangers of not grounding due to lightning). We have wised up and put on a ground, but the wire is still "charged." How to we "discharge" the wire, or does it act like a long, flat capacitor and we'll need to entirely replace the wire (about 140' of it). Thanks. o.k. to email answer to dvalento at lycoscom

Great site here! I'm hoping some of you smart folks can help me out here. Years ago, in junior high, I was doing something with standard 9 volt batteries. I can't remember what. I may have been trying to find one for my clock-radio. When I took a new one out of the package, I dropped it and it fell to the floor with the identical old (dead) one. This was before they were putting testers on the packages, so I was reduced to putting them to my tounge to see which one was hot. Then I had a bright idea. I decided to turn the batt onto it's narrow side, and then place one terminal onto my top row of braces and the other terminal onto my lower row. I don't remember the polarity orientation, if it matters. Anyway, I stood in front of the bathroom mirror so I could line the battery up, and at the moment of contact a bright blue spark about 2 to 2.5 feet flew from my mouth across the room. (Toward a light switch, if it matters.) After the feeling came back into my teeth and I worked up the courage, I gingerly placed the battery to my tounge. It was dead. Thinking I had confused it with the old one I was replacing, I checked the other battery. IT WAS DEAD TO. Apparently, I completely discharged a 9volt battery in one shot with my mouth. Is this unusual? Would someone mind explaining exactly what happened? I did good in physics in high school, I just don't remember a lot of it. I would love to know exactly what I did. Thanx, and keep up the great work on the site!

Great site Bill! I can really identify with your bio. I too had and still have a total disdain for anything having to do with the traditional educational system. School always was cruel and stifling. It only rewards those who can conform to the system. It punishes the rest of us. It doesn't encourage "real" questions. Only those questions that the teachers can answer. Having said that I want to point out that I am a Technology teacher. I believe that I was motivated to become a teacher for subversive reasons. Mainly to ecourage my students to question the world around them and then be able to accept that there usually is no right answers, just answers that sometimes fit better than others. Now having also said that, I have have a question, sort of!

Think about this. On a cosmic level I feel that perpetual motion already exists. We just have to figure out ways to extract "bits" of energy from it. But we also can't be greedy!

At least a bazillion years ago when the universe was set into motion. All kinds of electromagnetic energy was set free to roam the universe, The planets, especially earth was sent spinning "perpetually" on its axis and around the Sun. We are constantly being bombarded with all kinds of radiation from the Sun and the rest of the universe. People have already experimented with devices that absorb energy from the Sun, and also devices that can actually track the Sun's path across the sky for more energy absorbtion. Homebuilders have been experimenting with houses that have enough insulation to be maintained by the body heat of the occupants. etc.

Now, in practice we're never going to keep the lights of Las Vegas going on this "free energy" but if we adapt all these modern developments to the appropriate applications, and also adapt our lifestyles, just maybe those systems can run for a very long time if not perpetually while we save our more traditional energy resources for other more appropriate uses.

By the time the Sun uses up its energy and becomes a white dwarf, I suspect the human race will be long gone most likely by our own hand. If we developed any energy consuming system no matter how small that could sustain itself long after we're gone, couldn't that be viewed as a perpetual motion system. Nobody would be left to witness the systems demise. Sort of like the question about the tree falling in a forest when no one is around, did it make any noise? I'm done!

I study electronic engineering and I know from experience

Your site is great. However, I think you should take a look at Thomas Bearden's website, www.cheniere.org . If you have already visited there, I'd like to know what you think about his work and theories, by posting a short section about him. The only reason for my request is that his view of electricity and electromagnetics contradicts many of your views. I'm not sure whom to believe.

In the passage: "NO, INFRARED LIGHT IS NOT A KIND OF HEAT Infrared light is bright but invisible light. [clipped]" This first sentence implies that infrared light is, by nature, invisible. Should it not imply that infrared light is simply light and that the invisible light which we use in space heaters is just a bright version of the same?

And it would be nice to have a real BBS a nice one like something modern because everything here is too old. Unlike all the other dumb people that leave comments that arent worth reading I'm actually saying something usefull. If Interested I would be glad to team up with owner to work on this website and change many things, but keep the good old content. Because I was thinking of starting up a website like this, but it's easyer to take over one. I know html, good at graphics (photoshop, etc.), and can learn anything needed. But unfortunatly most people are too scared of having something like this done so my chances are slim. Oh well I could really turn this into a big community!! my email is obscureknowledge at hotmailcom (spaces so I dont get any more spam then I already have)

I read one of your pages where you were dismissing the flying triangles known as "thrusters" promoted by JLN Labs. While I admit there is plenty of sci-fi thrown around as fact and I haven't tried to build one of these for lack of HV supply (or desire to be electrocuted) The concept behind them is recognized by NASA and NASA was actually given a patent in 2001 for this even though the design has been around since the '50's and Brown already had a british patent, oh well, Just do a search for "Two-dimensional asymetrical capacitors" and cross referance NASA to find out the patent number and see the proof of concept model built in Alabama.

Interesting read concerning tones, oscilations, and cresendoing thereof. There are additional page links (4) in addition to those below. Click on next at bottom of page to go the next. Some Alleged Proofs That Mind-Dust Exists http://forum.onecentercom/cgi-bin/forum/forum.cgi?c=msg&fid=psychops&mid=797 Musical sound is the name we give this seemingly simple feeling which is clearly resolvable into simpler feelings. Well known experiments prove that when equal blows or tapps are made one after another at a rate not exceeding some sixteen per second, the effect of each is percieved as a seperate noise; but when the rapidity with which the blows follow one another exceeds this, the noises are no longer identified in seperate states of concsciousness, and there arises in place of them a continuous state of consciousness, called a tone. In further increasing the rapidity of the blows the tone undergoes the change of quality distinguished as rise in pitch; and it continues to rise in pitch as the blows continue to increase in rapidity until it reaches an acuteness beyond which it is no longer appreciable as a tone. http://eccliesiastes.homesteadcom/Untitled10.html James R Rose

To: Doug Proctr. Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Also anyone else interested. I have only just gotten around to reading the comments book as I've been re-researching Zero point/ Scalar etc, energy for the past two years to find out what I've missed the first time around (and the second and third), when I was stopped by Dougs letter and had to re-read it a few times. I have had similar thoughts along these lines. I have trained as an electrical engineer, a mechanical engineer and have a lot of experience in things psychic, photography, aircraft design and flying and oher things that go with a military service life, good and not so good, despite all this I'm still around. Drawing on experience I believe we produce vlf fields and interact with outside ulf, vlf and higher generated fields as well, these frequencies can be generated and will affect people, subject to various conditions, good or bad. Certain pulsed energy can have a marked effect at specific frequencies. I know people have been harmed, even killed, at moderate power levels and even caused to respond in specific ways. I believe at least some of these responses could be enhanced in a certain way. Certain high frequencies are said to cause harm physically. I believe ulf and vlf can do damage psychically and that this can lead to detrimental physical effects. I have "felt" elated, depressed, weird during experiments of this nature and maybe other feelings as well. I have not pursued this line any further yet as I recieved some disturbing information about results of someone elses experiments along this line. So projecting my results logically, what happened to him and her could have happened to me. This could be the destructive node psychically or physically you mentioned. I have also sensed the "good" and "evil" in certain places you mentioned and this extends to a few prople as well, I have attributed this to localised frequency pulling (de-tuning). I also believe that a lot of things blamed on the spiritual or psychic level are nothing to do with it and are more than likely physics. I have to go now. Hope to hear from you Doug. Maybe have to arrange some other way. Cheers all. Jim A.

I enjoyed the discussion on how a wing generates lift. I've long been unhappy with the Bernoulli explanation. However, there is one thing that bothers me about your explanation: if a plane is in level flight, and air is being deflected downwards to maintain lift, isn't conservation of momentum being violated? The aircraft, (flying at constant altitude), has no vertical component of momentum, but the air is being 'given' a downward component with no compensating upward component..........how? maccynic at aolcom

[Identical question: does a hovering rocket violate conservation of momentum? Obviously not. Same situation with helicopters, VTOL, machineguns aimed downwards, etc. Earth's gravity adds downward momentum to the craft, then the craft dumps that momentum into the air or into the exhaust. Something is accelerated downwards by gravity, but it's not the craft which falls. - billb]

Some thoughts and questions on maglev: Karl J.[Jerry] Lamb is a Pt. Angeles, WA inventor who may have developed a practical maglev system. He claims his system, using rare-earth magnets, will cost "only 2 million dollars per mile", while present systems cost about 90 million/mile. Wonder what conventional rail or highway systems cost per mile? Lamb, like other maglev developers, evisions a guide rail system, with 'bumpers' for guidance. He replaces superconductors with permanent magnets making the system closer to cost effective. There are a number of 'trade secrets' involved . He has stated that he makes the magnets think they're attracting intstead of repelling. Popular Science reported that Livermore Labs has developed a permanent magnet maglev system using special copper coils in the rails, with permanent magnets in the vehicle. This required a wheeled vehicle which must accelerate to about 3 mph to get the maglev effect to develop. The 1998 article didn't mention development costs per mile, but the cone-shaped coils would probably be costly. Another hint about Lamb's system comes from researching news releases about MagnaDrive, a Seattle based company which purchased Lamb's magnetic coupling device for large electric motors. A company official held a fairly heavy magnet over a rotating copper disk, and dropped the magnet. Instead of dropping onto the disk, the magnet "floated' down. I have another approach to the maglev rail system. How about a maglev belt or track system similar to a tank or caterpillar track-or a snowmobile belt? With maglev suspension, magnetic suspension drive wheels, a MagnaDrive clutch system, a vehicle would hve a self contained track system which would allow it to operate on the existing road system. A wide track, low friction rig would be easier on the road surface and eliminate pothole problems, lowering road maintenance costs. Possbly magnetic braking could improve safety. Magnetic repulsion might replace or supplement the airbag and safety bumper. I can't find Lamb's company website any more. His company is Magna Force, Inc. of Pt. Angeles, WA. Wonder if he got mail-bombed by 'magna-nuts' with perpetual motion gadgets? Anyone interested in all this?

Great work on creating this website!!! I like the links you have set up to answer science questions. You really condense a person's search activity by having everything in one place. Also the sites are good ones. There isn't the ONSLAUGHT of advertising trying to sell you something -either through membership/books...nor do the sites have mandatory questionaires regarding yourself which have to be answered before you can get information. I also like your efforts to raise a greater awareness toward science. I think some might think you a bit eclectic or weird, but that's because they are rigid in their thinking. You don't fit the "expected mold." Remember the old saying, "If everyone thinks alike, then nobody is really doing much thinking." Keep up the good work!!!

Hi Bill A quick note of possible interest. I recently supplied a VDG sphere to Dr Joris Dirckx, a professor at Antwerp University who is also very knowledgeable about electrostatics. At his request we added an inward wrapping "collar" to the column hole (with a bit of inventive fabrication) which he suggested, to reduce the "corona discharge from the edge of the hole" I understand that it is very successful, so I/we decided to offer this style to anyone interested. We have recently supplied one for a new Technical Museum in Mexico. Dr Dirckx has also offerred technical advice to assist others, if he can. There is a sketch together with a link to your website at the URL Kind regards.

I saw a Discovery (?) prgram that said there is a ligtning induced and maintained trapped 8Hz electrical signal bouncing between the surface of the Earth and the base of the ionosphere. And that lifeforms were sensitive to modifications in this field - all the birds, animals (including fish) vacated the area while Tesla was conducting his Tower experiments (feedback from which burnt out the GE generators supplying him with the power to run the experiment). I have had difficulty in verifying that the human (or other) body generates or uses a similar 8 Hz electical field. As a geologist I know that the magnetic properties of rock modify the local electical field, and as a guy with a radio in his van, I know that there are constructive and destructive nodes for radio signals around the country. My thought is this: if we (and other life) is built on 8Hz fields (or some other field), would it not make sense that we would be physically affected by field variations if the field strength were sufficient? Or were perhaps absent (i.e. at a destructive node)? Or could our personal field frequency not be forced out of its natural state by a superimposed (but perhaps local) field of slightly different frequency? Could we not feel 'weird' or elated under its influence, explaining in an EM way 'good' places and 'evil' places. There are geophysic areas and 'lines' which are said by spirtualists to be lines of life energy recognized by ancient cultures (and along which spiritually important sites can be founed): could these be related to past or presnt constructive/destructive interference patterns forming from the overall 8Hz field interacting with local physical conditions (including vegetation or other lifeforms)? Is there a map to the 8Hz Earth field at the Earth's surface? Is there a library of data on the effects of VLF on living organisms? Experiments in Montreal in the '90's showed that stimulation of the brain with rapidly changing EM fields produced feeling akin to alien abduction reports and generalized paranoia of the 'they are going to get me' type. The question I ask is, could Tesla's discovey of this 8Hz field be a start to unravelling the psychic phenomena (and associated industry) of the 20th century?

Result is humble, but afirmative, positive - A f i r m a t i v e , p o s i t i v e !!!!!!!!! I am gratefull to every member of my small team of physicist and engineers,volunteers, although they did not believed in positive result. They helped me with skepticism too. Why this experiment and this device is so important. It is unique device by which is possible to achieve gravifugal levitation. Experimental data at site: http://www.geocitiescom/agravity/ANTIGRAVITY.htm. Now we need a help with money and production technology to improve device, or build larger and better one .

surprise, az USA - Thursday, February 14, 2002 at 20:01:13 (PST)
Regarding energy sucking antennas, I beleive the reason Teslas' system works is that the transmitter frequency is controlled by the reciever as it comes into resonance. The transmitter and receiver become one tuned circuit. As standing waves grow stronger the return current forms a magnetic field that closes the flux lines and contains the energy. This way the energy can be all directed to the receiver at practically any distance with very little loss. nosyparker at highstreamnet

I can't access the "more info" attached to Shawn Carlson's article, "measuring the Metabolism of Small Organisms" in the Dec. 1995 Scientific American. When I click on the "more info", I get transferred to some kind of entertainment web site, SQRLcom. In fact any URL that has earth.thespherecom/SAS/SciAm sends me to SQRLcom. I need that more info! Help! TIA

Hi. Awesome site:) I am looking for information on luck as a phenomenon. I saw a talk show a few years back about lucky people...people who win almost EVERY contest they enter! And these people were just your every day Joe's. Also, the person who has never bought a lottery ticket, decides to buy one and WINS the first time! I would like to find any research on these types of people (in hopes I can turn myself into one of those people hahaha). So if you have any information about this, please email me at kyla_kiss at hotmailcom Thanks for your help! hugs Kyla

The stuff about the Hum was very intriguing. When my wife and I moved to southern maine a couple years ago I started hearing this sound at night that I thought was something like a street sweeper or snow plow, etc operating a few streets over. It was annoying and mysterious as I found myself not infrequently looking out the window in the middle of the night to see where all this machinery was working. The other strange thing was my wife never heard it -- even when we'd both hold our breath for absolute silence -- then I'd say there -- there it is and try to hum a little bit myself to "show" her were the pitch was, but to no avail.
We have since moved about forty minutes away from there, across the border to NH and I still hear it at night.
Fortunately it doesn't keep me awake, it's just very curious. I do have a suspicion that its related to traffic noise -- while this is by no means an urban setting, there are a couple of fairly well travelled roads nearby. I just wonder why micrphones don't (apparently) pick it up. Maybe it has to do with the traffic sound travelling through the ground and the solid material of one's house -- like the old stories of indians putting their ears to the ground -- and thus it is best heard at night when one's head is against the pillow (?)
If anyone can answer this, feel free to email me at adammann33 at yahoocom

Just thought someone who is interested in building an awesome VDG might appreciate this info: Motor- 12 VDC electric antenna motor works very well. (the motor found on automobile power antennas) Power it with variable voltage so you can find the righ t belt speed for your VDG generator. THIS IS WHAT IS REALLY COOL! At Home Depot or any other hardware store, you can buy "bed casters". (look at your bed frame-some have these casters) These rollers are NYLON - approx. 2 1/4" wide x 1 3/4" diameter AND they already have the slightly convex type surface which makes the belt stay centered on the roller! They must be removed from the metal bracket and they have a 5/16" center hole. The roller will "thread" onto the power antenna motor which has a worm dr ive gear -tightly and securely! (Direct drive) I am using an yellow exercise rubber belt cut to 2 5/16" width and angle glued seam with super glue. Put one layer of teflon tape on lower motor roller for positive sphere charge. The plain nylon upper rolle r in the sphere sends negative charge back down belt to decrease charge time. Combs are directly below and above rollers. (dead center) The upper roller has a piece of 5/16" brass tubing superglued into center hole which runs on a 1/4" steel stationary s haft. I am getting flashes up to 16" with two large salad bowls for the sphere and one salad bowl inverted for the base (grounded of course)! I used a 36"-4"dia PVC for the column with PVC toilet flanges glued & fittings siliconed to the bowls (holes cut out for flanges). These bed casters are an excellant choice at a cost of approximately $4.50 for TWO in a package! Also you will find that with the 4" PVC pipe that the 12VDC power antenna motor will mount directly to sidewall for a PERFECT centering of the lower roller after it is "screwed" onto the worm drive gear of the motor. It is so easy--almost like having a kit!!!!

Question: If one has a coil with multiple layers of turns, how does the inner layers provide any increased EM effects? Theory states that magnetic flux lines cannot cross. Transformers, inductors, etc. are all built on the principal that the more turns the greater the electromagentic effects. Unless flux lines "couple", wouldn't a single wire turn's flux be limited (in terms of the area that its EM radiations may occupy) by the ajoining wire turn's flux? Can anyone recommend a good book on transfom er/inductor/coil theory?

I first learned of waves when in the infantry. I was at the end of our column and was whipped like a snake. I watched the progress of the wave as it reached me and I would have to take off running, just catch up, take a couple of normal steps and then have to take off running again. This translates quite well into some of the traffic patterns I see in my daily route. My thought has been to place lights at set distances alongside the road, there would be three lights vertical at each post. They would be three different colors. They would "pulse" along the street to coordinate optimum speed of traffic as determined by real time computer diagnosis. The ligths would act much like a strobe light, if you were at optimum speed you would see each middle light as you approached it, if you were too fast you would see the top light and if too slow you would see the bottom light. This would feed an intuitive message to each and every driver probably automatically regulating traffic much better than anything else could. What do you think?

Electricity is an energy carrier. It is not energy itself. [What is electricity?] For electricity to exist, it must be released from an energy source. Examples: stored chemical energy in a battery, electromagnetic radiation energy in a solar panel, stored chemical energy in hydrocarbon fuels or nuclear energy that is first converted to mechanical energy by rotating devices and ultimately electricity by employing the use of conductors and magnetic fields, potential energy stored in the form of charged surfaces, and more and more.

As to your traffic wave/traffic calming observations, the problem is that you cannot know at exactly what speed to travel in order to produce the desired traffic calming effect. Imagine providing jolts to a child on a swing, or those executive toys with five or so balls on strings that clank together. Depending on when you release another ball, you can strengthen, weaken, or send into chaos the pattern. As to traffic calming, this will vary based on the aggresiveness of your fellow drivers, the number and location of entry ramps, the capacity of the road, the volume of traffic, and so on. You may think that you have perfected the art of traffic calming, but withoout the bird's eye view, and without potentially putting others at risk, you may be doing more harm than good. At 60mph, I wouldn't want to be playing with such fire. You're probably just lucky that you haven't caused additional accidents because the speeds involved are much slower.
[So, driving smooth and steady while staying far away from the car ahead of you is dangerous?! Do you think I should stop doing such things? Should everyone start doing the opposite?!! Seriously, please read Traffic Waves again and notice that most of the techniques are just a matter of extremely smooth driving and excessivly polite behavior. -billb]

Thank You so much for your fantastic site! I?ve been trying to build that electrostatic Anti-gravity Capacitor device for a couple of years now, and some thoughts have arisen. I wonder if this device has no static propulsion at all! Remember the V-1 missile? It had a buzzing ram-air valve jet engine, which needed some velocity in advance to get the air flow started and to the right direction also! This capacitor device should need some electric fan also in this sense, or initial velocity with its test platform. Or, alternatively, it would need electronic switching circuit, to constantly "roll" the field-creating voltages in the right direction, I think. Another thought: what if the hollow chamber in it should be bullet-shaped (remember Bernoulli gas flow theory?). Slightly progressively decreasing exhaust diameter makes the flow to accelerate (and: F = m times a!) The original text doesn?t mention these things. HAS ANYONE HAD SIMILAR THOUGHTS ????

In the passage: "NO, INFRARED LIGHT IS NOT A KIND OF HEAT Infrared light is bright but invisible light. [clipped]" This first sentence implies that infrared light is, by nature, invisible. Should it not imply that infrared light is simply light and that the invisible light which we use in space heaters is just a bright version of the same?

I am hooked on finding an old toy which was first marketed ca. 1972. The toy was called Dyna-Diver. It was basically a diving bell housed in a clear plastic bottle filled with water. The diving bell had a cup-shaped part inside the outter housing and provided a means of adjusting the buoyancy of the bell. On the bottom of the cup were two clamps, which ordinary would be closed when the bell was floating high up inside the bottle. As one squeezed on the bottle, the increased pressure inside caused the bell to sink and the clamps opened up. At the bottom of the bottle, there would be 'treasures' to be had. When the bell was at the bottom, one released the pressure and the clamps closed up, grapping whatever 'treasure' that it chanced upon and along with the bell, floated back to the top of the bottle. The mechanism was ingenious. Can anyone tell me if this is still available, first or second-hand? Thank you.

Hi Bill: love your bit on traffic waves.I been thinking aboutthis for years and allways thought there mustb be a physics relationship. I called it the slinky effect but thats not quite accurate. I don't know if it was mentioned, but if a group of slow traffic is created behind a standing wave it's very possible to create another behind the control group. But then that's not our problem, we're allready through it. I don't mind driving quickly but people don't seem to realize the adding 10 mph on a thirty mile trip won't buy the time for a cup of coffee. Keep up the good work.

Hi Bill, I really enjoy this website. Wish I would have found it earlier. Question 1: Can you explain the flow of current in a superconductor? Question 2: Is it possible to get a charge imbalance in a superconductor? Thanks, Kevin

Unanswered Question: Can water, even in small amounts, be repelled or attracted by electrically charging it or the air around it? Such as a magnet is repelled by another magnet of an opposite charge. If you know the answer and can explain it, please email me at: TheTJExpert at aolcom

I am searching for the plans to an energy device you called the solar wheel. IT works by using temp. differences to force liquid from one tank to another on a big ferris-like wheel causing it to rotate. If anyone could help I'd be greatly appreciative, I think it was featured in a Popular Science magazine sometime in the 70's.

Short note to appreciate the visual knowledge of traffic slowdowns. Most drivers are idiots, two lanes going to one at 55 means velocity must increase to 110, which I personally try to achieve to maintain a smooth flow in the world of traffic dynam ics, but, alas, rubberneckers prevail.

Bill, I have observed an interesting phenomenon which relates to the optical effects you "muse" about under Floaters, Bions, etc. It began when practicing zazen or sitting meditation. I have found that if one closes ones eyes, and focuses ones attention on a single point in the "blank field" of the closed eyes, there will appear a single starlike point of light, which fades in and out intermittently. It follows the natural point of focus and never appears "off to the side" so to speak. After the first obser vation, it can more or less be produced at will. The best conditions are lying in bed in a totally dark room, and it doesn't matter if the eyes are closed or open. If this a self induced hallucination, possibly? It is very reliable. All i have to do is concentrate and there it is. I am puzzeled and facinated by this and would love to find others who have experinced this.

On the fourier transform of waves (circular ponds)... also happens with sound in a large round study hall at my old school. Get the right seat and you could have a wispered conversation 10 feet away... Also, several years ago, on a remote beach... small waves came in , broke on a shallow sand bar, continued up the beach, flowed back out just in time to meet the next wave coming in. result. A long line (~500 m) of water spouting ~1m high from both ends ofthe beach (which was a good 3 km long) and then meeting in the middle. Repeat every 40 secionds or so... Awesome.... and temporary. Tends to concentrate sand onto the bar, which g ets too big and stops.

I have recently found a couple of things on the interenet that might interest the regular visitors of the Science Hobbyist web site. The first is something I've been looking for for quite a while: research on simulation of smoke rings. At http://www.featflow.de/album/main.html you will find a free program doing exactly that plus MPG movies of actual simulations! The second is an experiment regarding the A (magnetic potential vector) field. Originally this was thought to simply be a mathematical tool to make certian problems in electrodynamics easier to solve. Then, sometime about 3/4 through the 20 th century, so meone did an elaborate experiment involving electron diffraction through microscopic conducting wires showed an effect where the magnetic (B) field was zero but the A field was non-zero. Anyway, I was surfing through an alternative physics site I linked t o from here and found a description of a very simple experiment involving two normal bar magnets and an ordinary piece of wire. Here is a short description: orient the two bar magnets so that one is pointing up and one is pointing down, and position them a few (horizontal) inches apart. Run a wire horizontally in the direction such that it is perpendicular to the line defined by the midpoints of the bar magnets and position it so that it is exactly between the magnets. Now for the experiment: If you remove the second bar magnet and move the first one towards the wire, you will detect a current in the wire. Do the same with the second magnet and you will detect a current with the same magnitude and direction. Now put both magnets back into thei r original positions and simultaneously move BOTH of them towards the wire. Intuituition says that the effects should add up giving you twice the current. But if you measure the B field, you will find that since the magnets face opposite directions, their B fields cancell out exactly while their A fields(which go in circles around the bar magnets in the same way that B fields go around wires with currents flowing through them) add. The people who did this experiment reported that the current doubled as ex pected if you look at the A field. Even after the A field was proven to be more accurate than the B field in predicting experimental outcomes, noone has bothered to break the tradition of teaching students to use the B field except in the most advanced physics courses. This was justified b ecause the only well known experiment(briefly described above) involved a situation that is not likely to be encountered in any normal experiment. The second experiment I described, however, can be done with equiptment available in the average middle scho ol science lab. I wonder how long physics education will take to catch up with physics? The site I found the pdf document describing this experiment is http://www.omicron-researchcom/RecDocE/introE.html . Click on the link 25. "Faraday's law incomplete or wrong?" Dustin Soodak

I am in the process of building a Tornado Box. I would appreciate any help in locating a mist maker. I would like to purchase one off the internet since that is the easiest route. Cost is a factor. Two sources I looked at were www.indoorfountaincom/sm oker.html and shopping.discoverycom/product/1111-1449-b171405.html. These sites were suggested at a related site to the tornado box. Do you think that either of these mist makers would produce enough mist for the Tornado Box described at the Amatuer Scie nce site?

At http://amasci. com/freenrg/ideas.html there is an idea for a "sound camera". Interestingly enough, the latest issue of Scientific american has an article about an underwater sound camera that uses a parabolic dish to focus the sound. Of course, in order to get decent resolution, you would have to make the dish too big to take with you on an average dive trip. When fooling around with related ideas I came up with a (possible) way to get arbitrary-resolution pictures with a minimum of 3 microphones and without a bulky lens or parabolic dish to focus the sound. The main reason for this post (besides ego enhancement) is that in order to test this idea I need a (preferably easy and inexpensive) way to simultaneously take input from 3 or more microphones and send the data to a computer. Does anyone know a way to do this that won't require hundreds of dollars worth of fancy equiptment? Dustin

As I recall, Mr. Wizard used to say on his TV show (And what a show it was): "For every inch of arc, figure 10,000 volts." I.e., a two inch arc would require 20,000 volts. I'm sure the conductivity of the air (ionization, humidity, gases present in t he surrounding air, etc.) would have an effect of the length of the arc too. Like a Jacobs ladder where the electric arc ionizes the air above the arc (making it more conductive) and allows the arc to get longer as it climbs the V shaped "rungs" of the l adder.

"Having problems of static within our industry. We print on and make plastic bags. ( polyethlyne film ). Would appreciate guidance or direction." This seems to be one of the most common industrial production problems I have seen mentioned on the net. Seems like humidifying the production facility, in conjunction with using static discharge brushes (such as those that discharge static from paper in computer printers) would be a good place to start. Also a fanatical attention to grounding production equipment would help. Are all these methods already used? Also, there is a new section on www.ideadollarcom where companies can offer a reward for fixes for problems such as this. Check it out. Scott Atlanta

Pottsville, Pa USA - Tuesday, April 10, 2001 at 15:44:38 (PDT)

[To trigger sparks, the e-field must have about 30,000V per cm, plus 1,400V. For large flat polished electrodes in air at 1ATM this length translates directly, where 3,140V can jump a 1mm gap. For non-flat electrodes like needles, wires, etc., or if there is any dirt on the surfaces or floating in the air, the equation does not work (and the sparking voltage becomes immensely lower.)

Everyone THINKS they can calculate sparks by 30,000V/cm, but it doesn't work for wire electrodes, and a floating dust speck can cause the spark to jump at 10x less voltage. Also, once a spark has been triggered, it can grow much longer, and its length is limited by the WATTAGE of the power supply. Think like this: sparks need volts to get started, but they need watts to grow longer (lightning works this way.) Also see more info]

I have seen a .mov movie on electrostatic motor section but now i cannot find it. Please help me

Bill, I was wondering if anyone was currently working on the gravity-capacitor? I work for a company that makes ceramic capacitors. I have seen frequent references to using titanium dioxide as a dielectric. I believe the appropriate material is bari um titanate. High "K" factor. Further, it sounds like the choice of metal for the plates should be based on ESR (equivalent series resistance). Lastly, a relatively simple method of creating complex conductive shapes is to screen print suspended metal inks on to a substrate. That's how we do it anyway. If someone is having any success with this device, please let me know.

Dear Mr. Beaty, Found your website via http://www.spaced.org/bill/bill.html. Have linked to your website from my Science/ Technology page. Also you'll see a list of Canadian Bills. Your traffic wave theory is interesting. I read an article which suggested that constructing new roads adds to congestion because of the on- and off- ramps as you suggest. It was in a Science Digest or Discovery Magazine five or six years ago. Somebody in your area had a sand tracing pendulum operating during the recent earthquake. See http://www.gaelwolfcom/pendulum.html. Would this qualify as a fractal?

Talking pottery: Years ago OMNI magazine reported on a scientist who was trying to make pottery talk. The idea was that, when a pot was spun on a potter's wheel and the potter held a stylus against the spinning jar to create designs and texture, soun ds would be recorded in the grooves the stylus made. The sylus hopefully would vibrate in tune to surrounding voices and noises and create modulated grooves in the clay in much the same way sound is recorded on a Edison wax cylinder or vinyl record by a vibrating needle. The scientist hoped to point a laser at the grooves in the revolving jar and "read" the sound data in the modulation of the refelected laser beam. He hoped to bring back the sounds of the ancient villages where the pottery was created. Fascinating. Does anyone have any further info on outcome of this research, or info when the original OMNI article was published? Thank you

On the ring vortex launchers: A very easy way to make one is to take a coffe can and cut both ends out. Get two of the polyethylene lids. Cut a hole in one, and the launcher is made. For experiments with smoke rings try different size holes, square and triangular holes. instead of using totally different lids for the ones with the holes, cut a very large hole in the lid and make posterboard or thiln cardboard stock for disks that have various holes. Size the disks so that the ring holds it on to the can.

In a transformer, power is the same in both primary and secondary coils. If the second coil is connected to a load that requires more power that required, what would happen? For example, 10 Volts, 10 Watts (1 Amp because I=P/V) goes through the primary coil and jumps to 20 Volts in the scondary (P = 10 Watts because power is constant, I = 0.5 Amps because I=P/V). So does this mean that 0.5 Amps is going through the coil with 20 Volts pushing through it? What if the load connected to the secondary coil requires more current than possible (like 10 Ohm resistor connected to 20 Volts in the secondary requires 2 Amps and 40 Watts, exceding the 10 Watt limit)?

[Is the shock far more painful than the shock you get when touching a car door after getting out of the car? Does it make the muscles of your arm strongly twitch? If so, then it might be dangerous. To reduce the energy, just use a much smaller piece of foil. Don't cover the whole TV screen, instead use a foil disk that's 3in or 6in in diameter. -billb]

Concerning "antibubbles"... I always knew there was some weird science going on when I would squirt my contact lens saline solution into the little contact holder cup. I'm really pretty blind, so without my contacts in I have to look very close at things to see clearly. Sometimes those globs of solution "antibubbles" would bounce around for a good 5 to 10 seconds before disappearing. Thanks for finally enlightening me about this cool effect!

The smoke ring gizmo would have a problem in verticle mode as the up and down moving surfaces would cancel each other out, unless, you added flexable flaps. The flaps would colaps on the upswing and open on the down. There is in fact a rubber donut gun which fires a ring shaped projectile.

Outer space is not a void, it is filled with matter in dissolute form. When a section is given to a rotary motion, a vortex is formed. Like a whirlwind that gathers dust and straw so does the vortex compel the dissolute matter towards it's center until layer after layer a planet is formed. Even today the spiriling arms of distant galaxies may be seen with a small telescope. The vortex is what brought the earth into existence and is what keeps it spinning even today.

There is no such force as gravity. The force that pushes us or holds us to the planet is nothing more than a spinning magnetic field or vortex. Disassemble an old auto speedometer, circa 1955, and view the forces that a spinning magnetic field imparts.

This new perception of what maybe the fundamental component of the universe; is brought to you on 5 single pages, by Ron Belshaw, an armchair Physics enthusiast. To demonstrate the value of the information on these pages consider Neutron Decay. Article 2, [Periodic Table of Particles] demonstrates why a neutron would decay. So the particle may become stable, on the Scanlon line. Article 1 [What is Charge] provides a simple and likely method of how the "common" wave within the unstable neutron breaks into several parts. To reach stability the neutron ejects an electron, which takes away a negative half cycle of the neutron's "common" wave. The proton now has an odd number of "common" waves, and an extra positive half cycle . The other ejected particles comprise of even numbers of "common" waves. Thanks for viewing

I would like to ask a question that one of the pupils that I help out has asked, because I am finding it hard to find the answer. Please remember I don't know much about Science and The child is 11 years old. The question is. How fast does eletricity travel along the wire, and is it faster than light? Please can you send me an answer A.S.A.P as he would like to put it in his project and he only has 2 weeks from this date to do it. The site is great. Thanks.

This is a comment on part of one of the pages on this site:
http://amasci. com/freenrg/sukdynam.html

But this would imply that if you a light-bulb and gave it a modest velocity away from you(faster than the speeds of any of the individual molecules in the light bulb), you would no longer see it!

[in a hot solid, the resonators are coupled, so the oscillator frequences become smeared out. It's a box full of bells, versus individual bells ringing separately. -billb]

The idea about photons not really existing except as waves is a fairly accurate conceptual tool though.

I've actually seen a similar idea in solid-state physics: The transmition of sound can be modelled by considering each atom to be a simple harmonic oscillator(like a pendulum) that is weakly connected to its neighbors. If one atom has a certian amount of vibrational energy, it will transfer this energy to its neighbors in discrete units(this conclusion came from actual mathematical proof as opposed to idle speculation). For this reason, they coined the term "phonon" which is just the audio equivalent of a photon. In one lecture I attended, the professor demonstrated this with an apparatus that consisted of a piece of string (streched horizontally between a couple of poles) from which he hung two pendulums. He pushed one to give it some energy and after a few seconds it (relatively)suddenly stopped as all of its energy was transferred to its neighbor.

I'm suprised that this example isn't given as an explanation of wave/particle duality in Q.M. especially since this concept is regularly applied in solid state physics. One professor I talked to seemed to see no difference between the reason for the "existence" of phonons and photons. I didn't quite believe it, though, until I read your article, since the normal way Q.M. is taught makes you think that photons are some sort of fundamental particle.

I've also seen the idea of atoms absorbing energy by emitting waves that partly cancelled out the incoming waves but the description in class was fairly confusing and not detailed enough to give an explanation for what caused the atoms to emmit the cancellation waves in the first place. It was also stated that this was just the classical E.M. theory. In fact, when I read you "energy suction" series I suddenly realized that I had never actually seen an official explanation of how atoms emmit and absorb photons(this after being a physics major for 4 years!). Sure they teach you how to calculate the absorbsion and emmision lines(frequencies) but the actual process seemed to be taken as an axiom(the atom CAN emit and absorb at an energy, E (which means frequency E/h), therefore it DOES). One of these days I am going to corner a physics professor and not give up until I get a straight answer.

I think the hum is cause by pest control devices.The phase shift current technology useing ceramic ulrasonic acoustic tranucer. Plug this into your wall it goes thru the house wire out to the transformer is amphyfied2000 times then down the trunk lines that feed all the houses.How douse it do it. IT has phase shift magnetic pulse.Any house car or encloser acts like a speaker. This signel is useing the power lines as antenia and the 2000 time amphyfied magnetic plus can travel miles like radar. What is it doing to us. This could be our down fall like lead pipes to Roam.This is a heath problem
