This will sound like an odd-ball question, but here goes…
My buddy Vince and I have been looking at the B-wave in magnetics a good bit.
As I mentioned on the Peoplenomics site, there was a lecture by James Clerk Maxwell wherein he discussed the B-field concept a good bit,. I want to think it was in 1748, but you can find the lecture notes over on Robert Nelson’s marvelous Rex Research site here.
What is a B-field? It is shown in the diagram, right. It is a weak force which pushed the North-South magnetic lines of force out and away from the mid-section of a magnet.
My next series of experiments will be to see how the B-field distorts when multiple magnets are held in opposition. I should be able to model it using Visimag…A video on use of VisiMag is over here on YouTube.
Other software is available, but what I’m specifically looking for it the effects of B-field excitation of multiple coils in different arrangements (such in as in a large circle, such as might be seen in the vertical cross-section of a UFO…). And, taking it another step, what happens if the magnets are pulsed using high potential DC and various frequencies? And (let’s toss this out, too), what happens when multiple coils are wound on a substrate of ferromagnetic materials that is topologically anomalous, such as a big Mobius core?
There is also an assertion made by Boyd Bushman in a YouTube video over here that when two magnets which have their B-fields opposing are dropped, they fall more slowly than a simple weight. So we already know that opposed magnets fall more slowly (assuming the video is not a spoof), so how much higher power can we develop using electromagnets rather than single-state neodymium fixed magnets?
There have been some reports of ghostly apparitions appearing in the vicinity of high Tesla magnetics such as those used for magnetic imaging. But whether that’s a hint at a link between portals and magnetics became a bit more doubtful last month when an article came out “explaining” the phenomena over here.
As I have spare time (Hahahaha.,…what’s that?) I’ve been designing complex B-wave generators based on using the concept of relatively low-power electromagnets.
What I’m presently looking for is any additional resources that may hint as to how B-waves might had been used at Coral Castle by Edward Leedskalnin. I’ve got all the books from their gift shop. and been through the place three times now…
Anyway, send along ideas, please…
One Other Note on Anti-Grav Related Studies
A GizMag article here goes into some discussion of how mounting jet engines on the top side of aircraft wings may lead to shorter takeoff rolls.
New press maybe, but not a new idea. In fact, one of the joys of being an old pilot from Seattle is I remember the Boeing YC-14 which was around circa 1975-76 at the Developmental Center adjacent to runway 13 Right.
The Boeing YC-14 was a twin-engine short take-off and landing (STOL) tactical transport. It was Boeing‘s entrant into the United States Air Force‘s Advanced Medium STOL Transport (AMST) competition, which aimed to replace the Lockheed C-130 Hercules as the USAF’s standard STOL tactical transport. Although both the YC-14 and the competing McDonnell Douglas YC-15 were successful, neither aircraft entered production. The AMST project was ended in 1979 and replaced by the C-X program.
Key thing if you’re thinking about making such a bird for yourself?
Two major problems were found and corrected during testing. The first was a problem with air circulating around the wing when operating at low speeds close to the ground, which had a serious effect on the spreading of the jet flow though the nozzle. This led to flow separation near the flap, and a decrease in effectiveness of the USB system. In response, Boeing added a series of vortex generators on the upper surface of the wing, which retracted when the flap was raised above 30°. Additionally, the tail surfaces were initially placed well aft in order to maximize control effectiveness. This positioning turned out to interfere with the airflow over the wings during USB operations, and a new tail with a more vertical profile was introduced to move the elevator forward.
And yes, that’s why I am such a raving believer in Vortex Generators and wouldn’t be without ‘em on our plane. And I am somewhat disinclined to fly in any light plane without them.
But funny to odd how the Boeing YC-14 upper surface blowing engine mounting idea is making the rounds again. A slightly aft-mount to achieve some upper surface effects at slow flight speeds was also incorporated in the A-10 Warthog….That was more an upper surface sucker than an upper surface blower, but you get the idea.
Diaspora or Sexodus; Internal Coding
T’other morning I broached the idea of “diaspora” as perhaps having to do with the number of humans who are leaving “this Life” and moving into virtual realms.
Second point: We opened up comments on UrbanSurvival Monday and a fair number of very excellent comments followed. Including this one on the Diaspora question:
Before I post the content of a different kind of ‘diaspora’ that came to my attention over the weekend, let me give you a little background on me, in order to avoid a breakout of comments in excess of PG-13.
I’m ‘over the hill’ and ‘out of the game’. I’m a heterosexual female, yet mentally-emotionally I’m about half-way between typical male and female traits. I can usually see both sides of a male-female argument. Were I to visit George’s place, I would want a tour of his shop, and would probably end up discussing interior decorating and trompe l’oeil painting with Elaine.
Fire suppression preface over – on to content………..
In just the past few days a cluster of articles has hit the Internet that indicate a cultural and economic shift large enough to be considered a ‘diaspora’: Men are leaving.
• The NY Times has run articles on ‘the vanishing male’ in the workplace
• Breitbart has a series on the ”Sexodus”, about men abandoning sexual relationships
• There is a research paper out of the UK titled, “The Darwin Awards: sex differences in idiotic behavior.” Men leave this life by dangerous/violent/idiotic behavior far more frequently than females
For the sake of brevity I’m going to make a non-sequitur jump to another, possibly related, concept.
Several months ago I listened to a podcast of Dawson Church, PhD (author of “The Genie in Your Genes: Epigenetic Medicine and the New Biology of Intention ”) interviewing Dr. Bruce Lipton (author of “The Biology of Belief”). A few brief statements by Dr. Lipton about the subconscious mind grabbed my attention. He said (from my notes and paraphrased) that the subconscious mind of a child before the age of 7 learns mainly in theta via ‘hypnosis’. The subconscious mind at that age is a recording device – no one is there. After the age of about 7 the subconscious mind learns via habit and repetition.
So to begin to make a connection………..
The subconscious mind ‘runs’ much of our life in a manner similar to the program coding of an interactive website or other computer application. It runs in the background. It is not directly visible in the day to day operations. Much of that code is written before the age of 7 by the people, experiences, and more recently, the numerous media inputs to which we are exposed.
Contrast and comparison for you to chew on………… Consider a tribal society prior to radio, TV or Internet. What would a young boy’s inputs/experiences/coding be?
Consider a boy in the USA post-1950s. What would a boy’s inputs/experiences/coding be as the TV became the prime baby-sitter? Then consider subsequent generations of increasing TV exposure followed by increasingly immersive video games. Mind-riveting images with emotion modulating sound flood the attention for long periods of time. What kind of behavior does this encode?
Remember – that early coding does not go away. Some of it may be rewritten by ‘habit and repetition’. Yet the intense inputs of TV and media and video games have not gone away. Is the root level coding of young children one of the ‘bugs in the system’? Is the subconscious mind an invisible elephant in the room that we constantly run into, and then blame each other for the bruises? Are men ‘burning up the gears’, because of conflicting coding, and shutting down to reduce the stress? Are men ‘vanishing’ because their map does not match the terrain?
Are most of us (ALL of us?) lost because our internal coding and maps do not match the physical and cultural terrain?
That a certain type of “low-level format” of humans takes place is undeniable: It has been commonplace in religious groups for well over a thousand years and whether you consider the early (Catholic) church and its seminaries, or whether you’re talking the latter day Islamic madrasa, the ideal is that just as in NTFS, proper formatting is required for desired results.
Few people deliberately take ownership of their personal, low-level formatting. Instead, average people often stay average for the simple fact that they come pre=programmed as young people to follow in the same footsteps as their parents.
I was extremely blessed to have parents that wished me to be successful, even if that meant outperforming them in several areas of life. Fathers, for example, have a tough time telling their sons “It’s OK to be more (successful at whatever) than I have been…” It’s something I’ve come to appreciate about my upbringing that made it exceptional despite health issues when I was young.
My personal “reformatting” began when I went to work at an R&B radio station when I was the minority. You get a lot of understanding about other people and cultures this way.
The second major reformat came when I was working (as a newscaster) in about 1970-71 with a DJ named Roger Dale. He’d gotten involved early-on with the positive mental attitude (PMA) crowd and he sold me as set of audio tapes called “Lead the Field” by Earl Nightingale.
That was a life-changer. And the expanded version of that series is still available as an audio CD series comprised of 20-CDs. It ‘s on Amazon as The Essence of Success (Twenty Compact Discs) and will set you back $100.
I think so highly of it (and thye $30/ 6 CD set “Lead the Field”) that I’ve given away at least have a dozen copies over the years. And for Christmas, my son is getting the 20 CD “Essence of Success”.
CD-based learning is far more productive listening in the car on the way to work than is listening to the radio. Becoming the sole owner of a self-programming intelligence is mighty cool stuff.
Back to the point I was making: It may be that many men are fed up with “the system” and are leaving the workplace. But it’s worth asking whether that’s because of the influence of the women’;s movement, the emergence of the LBGT movement, or something else? We’re right to think of television as a prime suspect, particularly because when I watch the kind of kid programming out there today…
All of which gets us to the first big ponder of the morning: Why in all of our Sesame Street and Common Core programming, don’t we pay more attention to enabling the “success gene?”
The answer is sort of obvious, I suppose: If we didn’t have a ready pool of willing people who have been preprogrammed into compliance, unquestioning thought, who in their right mind would allow themselves to be turned into killers on command, or many of the other “necessary but not necessarily good” jobs that get done in modern society?
While there may be some numbers to support the “Sexodus” idea, count me skeptical: I think just as many women are waking up as men, doing the personal low-level reformatting, and opting out. For women that might be the stay-at-home-mom option, which seems to be growing as jobs have become more scarce and the cost of daycare, commuting, and all the rest of the expense of work (including a lack of parenting time) becomes more and more apparent (to choose the odd word).
The rest raised by reader Robin in the note is pretty much spot-on: We have no idea what trying to raise a child on television is really doing to them in the long-term, but the fact is we live in a society where we have all convinced ourselves that “faster is better” and frankly, there’s a pretty good case to be made that exactly the opposite is true.
The “common sense” ain’t so common anymore. Which means it would sure make an interesting novel if someone were to write it; Videocide. A novel that explores how the low-level formatting errors of an entire planet drove it past the brink of insanity….
Except for the minor nit that we’re doing exactly that, it would be a fine read….
Opening Day of Comments
Having opened up comments, the harshest so far has been from Mr. X (readers who responded to his post, thank you!).
And the most thought provoking one was the one from Robin.
There is one thing I am curious about: Almost no one commented on the actual “news” portion of the site, and since that one is where the economic outlooks are discussed, I would have thought there would be more (OK, at least some) interest in commenting there…
But maybe that’s why we opened up comments. Namely, to get a better sense of what readers are looking for from UrbanSurvival.
I think we have done almost every prepping topic on earth – and long before it became a hugely over-hyped part of life. Much of it is still over in the Peoplenomics library.
But thank you for the thoughts and keep them coming….
Off to sorting out markets after I make some cottage cheese pancakes…
