Electricity: Things college won’t tell you

Electricity: Things college won’t tell you


Albert Einstein said: “I have now struggled with this basic problem of electricity for more than twenty years, and have become quite discouraged, though without being able to let go of it. I am convinced that a completely new and enlightening inspiration is needed.” Albert Einstein, letter to Cornelius Lanczos, 14 Feb. 1938

It’s 2020 as I write, the end of 2019 the year of confusion the result of many years of compounding confusion, where truth is lies and lies is truth. Mainstream news is fake, ranting, infantile foot stompers and stupid problem tanglers, do gooders who cause more division than harmony. Cheats and crooks and an unashamed desire for possessing wealth, covetousness, greediness, an insatiable desire for gain. None of this is new but 2019 was a bumper year. Science is not immune, it’s own version of the above has been smouldering for a century or more. Fake electricity combined with hubris, a brand of conceited smugness that knows it all even when proven wrong. Top-down theories supported by metaphysical numbers, equations that don’t equate. The antediluvian Atomism versus Aetherism fiasco, even though modern atomism has the subatomic particle to make it look like something new. Nothing changes it just gets worse and physics is in the kind of chaos reserved for all those who sneer at logical common sense.

Quantum Electronics, 3rd Edition Amnon Yariv ISBN: 978-0-471-60997-1 January 1989

Physicists avoid electricity like the plague, the phrase “quantum electronics” is rarely if ever used. Wiki doesn’t have an entry. If you look for a book on the subject you may find just one and it’s old. To find reasons for the more modern electric dissent one must look back to the discovery of the electron and the theories of Einstein. Both had their roots in electrical theory while both split away because electricity did not conform to the new science. There has therefore been no research into the true nature of electricity for more than a century.

Einstein banished the aether underpinning claiming it was unnecessary after centuries of science and philosophy. But physics was to discover it couldn’t function without it and a number of alternative aethers have been theorised with various names: Dirac’s sea, zero point energy, quantum fluctuations, anything but the forbidden word. It goes on and on ad nauseam in a desperate search for justification of the pseudo-word “spacetime”. The two words it’s made from both mean nothingness. Space being the absence of matter. Time being the absence of an explanation of what it actually is. The drive for counter-intuitive complexity is a mental slurry that the physicist lives to wallow in.

In the beginning, there was just Chaos. From the void emerged Erebus, the god of darkness, and Nyx, the goddess of the night. Their primordial children were Aether, the god of the heavenly air, and his sister Hemera, the goddess of the day and earthly light.

Aether – The god of the heavenly air.

Wiki: …According to the successful electromagnetic aether theory based upon Maxwell’s electrodynamics, this all-encompassing aether was endowed with energy and hence very different from nothingness. The fact that electromagnetic and gravitational phenomena were easily transmitted in empty space indicated that their associated aethers were part of the fabric of space itself. Maxwell himself noted that: “To those who maintained the existence of a plenum as a philosophical principle, nature’s abhorrence of a vacuum was a sufficient reason for imagining an all-surrounding aether… Aethers were invented for the planets to swim in, to constitute electric atmospheres and magnetic effluvia, to convey sensations from one part of our bodies to another, and so on, till a space had been filled three or four times with aethers.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero-point_energy#Early_aether_theories

His advice fell on closed minds and they changed his equations.

Wiki again: Luminiferous aether or ether (“luminiferous”, meaning “light-bearing”) was the postulated medium for the propagation of light. It was invoked to explain the ability of the apparently wave-based light to propagate through empty space, something that waves should not be able to do. The assumption of a spatial plenum of luminiferous aether, rather than a spatial vacuum, provided the theoretical medium that was required by wave theories of light.
The aether hypothesis was the topic of considerable debate throughout its history, as it required the existence of an invisible and infinite material with no interaction with physical objects. As the nature of light was explored, especially in the 19th century, the physical qualities required of an aether became increasingly contradictory. By the late 1800s, the existence of the aether was being questioned, although there was no physical theory to replace it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luminiferous_aether

This is where Einstein came in and physics breathed a sigh of relief. Einstein removed the thorn in the side that was aether and this is the sole reason he was so popular with the administrators of science. Having removed the aether, he cancelled the propagation of light in the aether and made it the speed of light in a vacuum, something it never was. In doing so he transferred the properties of the aether to the vacuum that previously had no properties. Basically the aether became the vacuum. A vacuum cannot have properties or it’s not a vacuum, hence the confusion we now have, a confusion that made Einstein into a genius and a superhero and physics into a dolt.


Not so the pioneers of the telegraph and wireless telegraphy, those on the job, who had time and again proven the invaluable worth of aether theory. Pioneers referring to Clerk Maxwell, Oliver Heavisde, C.P. Steinmetz, Walter Russell, J.J. Thomson, Nikola Tesla, William Crookes and Michael Faraday These were the the men who gave us the electronic technology we enjoy today – cast aside for Einstein and the electron that gave us nothing useful. Electronic test equipment is reading the same today as it was before the electron was known. Nothing changed. In Einstein’s famous formula E=mc2, energy is undefined, as is mass. Einstein’s use of the word stationary is undefinable as everything is moving, there is no *stationary* point in the whole universe. This makes anything he did completely unengineerable. Nothing changed.

Maxwell’s Equations are not Maxwell’s

Wiki: But it wasn’t until 1884 that Oliver Heaviside, concurrently with similar work by Josiah Willard Gibbs and Heinrich Hertz, grouped the twenty equations together into a set of only four, via vector notation. This group of four equations was known variously as the Hertz–Heaviside equations and the Maxwell–Hertz equations, but are now universally known as Maxwell’s equations. Heaviside’s equations, which are taught in textbooks and universities as Maxwell’s equations are not exactly the same as the ones due to Maxwell, and, in fact, the latter are more easily forced into the mold of quantum physics. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Maxwell%27s_equations

Maxwell was gagged, all mention of the aether was ignored and deleted.

A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field

James Clerk Maxwell

Wiki: A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field: Of this paper and Maxwell’s related works, fellow physicist Richard Feynman said: “From the long view of this history of mankind – seen from, say, 10,000 years from now – there can be little doubt that the most significant event of the 19th century will be judged as Maxwell’s discovery of the laws of electromagnetism.”

I seriously doubt Feynman ever read it and if he did he failed to use it.

Wiki again: Albert Einstein used Maxwell’s equations as the starting point for his Special Theory of Relativity, presented in The Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies, a paper produced during his 1905 Annus Mirabilis. In it is stated: “the same laws of electrodynamics and optics will be valid for all frames of reference for which the equations of mechanics hold good”

and “Any ray of light moves in the “stationary” system of co-ordinates with the determined velocity c, whether the ray be emitted by a stationary or by a moving body.” (All bodies in the universe are moving.)

Maxwell’s equations can also be derived by extending general relativity into five physical dimensions.

Oliver Heaviside,

Oliver Heaviside
Maxwell’s Equations are not Maxwell’s

Wiki: Less well known is that Heaviside’s equations and Maxwell’s are not exactly the same, and in fact it is easier to modify the former to make them compatible with quantum physics. The possibility of gravitational waves was also discussed by Heaviside using the analogy between the inverse-square law in gravitation and electricity.

They’re still working on that one.

“The idea of electricity as a flow of ‘electrons’ in a conductor was regarded by Oliver Heaviside as “a psychosis”. This encouraged Heaviside to begin a series of writings.”

C.P. Steinmetz

Charles Proteus Steinmetz

Wiki: At the time of his death, Steinmetz held over 200 patents. A genius in both mathematics and electronics, he did work that earned him the nicknames “Forger of Thunderbolts” and “The Wizard of Schenectady”. Steinmetz’s equation, Steinmetz solids, Steinmetz curves, and Steinmetz equivalent circuit theory are all named after him, as are numerous honors and scholarships, including the IEEE Charles Proteus Steinmetz Award, one of the highest technical recognitions given by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers professional society. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Proteus_Steinmetz

Steinmetz also escaped the badmouth of science, he is “The Wizard of Schenectady”.
Even though he said, “Unfortunately to a large extent in dealing with dielectric fields the prehistoric conception of the electro-static charge, the ‘electron’, on the conductor still exists, and by its use destroys the analogy between the two components of the electric field, the magnetic and dielectric. This makes the consideration of dielectric fields unnecessarily complicated” – C.P. Steinmetz (Electric Discharges, Waves and Impulses)

Walter Russell

Walter Russell
Walter Russell

Walter Russell was the first (maybe) to call the universe an “Electromagnetic Wave Universe” in 1921.
“To describe an electron as a negatively charged body is equivalent to saying that it is an expanding-contracting particle. (See Tesla below) There is no such condition in nature as a negative charge, nor are there negatively charged particles. Charge and discharge are opposite conditions, as filling and emptying, or compressing and expanding are opposite conditions.” – W. Russell

J.J. Thomson

J.J Thomson

Thomson was an aether physics man, adhering to Faraday’s “tubes of force” unlike his contemporaries. I dare say most will find this surprising as they have been taught that Thomson discovered the electron, which I suppose he did. Thomson’s experiments gave substance and engineering possibility to electricity. His work with inertia is hardly known. Thomson appears as a man with two identities, a foot in both camps, whether this was thrust upon him or he chose his own path I don’t know. Truth be told he was more akin to Nikola Tesla than the mainstream.
See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEi6L42nz3k

JJ Thomson developed the “Ether Atom” ideas of M. Faraday into his “Electronic Corpuscle”, this indivisible unit. One corpuscle terminates on one Faradic tube of force, and this quantifies as one Coulomb. This corpuscle is not an electron, it is a constituent of what today is known incorrectly as an “electron”. (Thomson relates 1000 corpuscles per electron) In this view, that taken by W. Crookes, J.J. Thomson, and N. Tesla, the cathode ray is not electrons, but in actuality corpuscles of the Ether. – E. Dollard

Also consider the J.J. Thomson concept of the “electron” (his own discovery). Thomson considered the electron the terminal end of one unit line of dielectric induction. “Electrons as a separate, distinct entity…doesn’t really exist, they are merely bumps in something called a ‘field’.” – Dr. Steve Biller

“The electron: may it never be of any use to anybody! J. J. Thomson”
— A popular toast or slogan at J. J. Thompson’s Cavendish Laboratory in the first years of the 1900s, as quoted in Proceedings of the Royal Institution of Great Britain, Volume 35 (1951), p. 251. Said to have been posted on the Cavendish Lab wall
It has to be remembered that in order to carry-out his electron finding experiments Thomson had to have at his disposal all of the electrical components and circuitry we have today. This same circuitry worked perfectly well with the arrival of the transistor.

Nikola Tesla

Nikola Tesla c. 1896

There are countless detractors of Nikola Tesla most of whom belong to mainstream science for obvious reasons. Others are space cadets and pseudo-sceptics who hang on every word uttered by physicists. The latest doubter I’ve come across is here:

“Kathy Loves Physics & History”

Tesla Fact vs. Fiction: Why the Public Perception is Wrong. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6331JXvOUGY

The lady says she researched it by “reading primary material”, when she also actually did the rounds of YouTube gathering Tesla garbage. She makes it sound like it’s Tesla’s fault. “Ready to hear the real story”? “Lets Go.” she says, “Tesla invented alternating current (AC) and powered the world.” She then goes on to find previous inventors of AC to prove he didn’t do it. The trouble with this is that Tesla never claimed to have invented AC. When asked which of his discoveries he was most proud he answered “The rotating magnetic field”, this was his AC induction motor, the AC generator still used today, unimproved from the original. It’s about what she leaves out, in fact there are dozens of website that contain complete tosh about Tesla, just like her own. Then we have “Tesla’s Wardenclyffe Tower transmitter was stopped because it didn’t work and Marconi’s did.” It’s never mentioned that Marconi stole all of his ideas from Tesla and others. Tesla had demonstrated wireless transmissions well before Marconi and was disinterested in his efforts.

William Spottiswoode debunker and cad

She fails to mention that the first radio transmissions were debunked by members of the Royal Society, no less: Wiki: On February 20, 1880 he (David Hughes) demonstrated his technology to representatives of the Royal Society including Thomas Henry Huxley, Sir George Gabriel Stokes, and William Spottiswoode, then president of the Society. Stokes was convinced the phenomenon Hughes was demonstrating was merely electromagnetic induction, not a type of transmission through the air.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Edward_Hughes
It was as if Faraday didn’t exist, him being a permanent fixture at the society at the time. They managed to delay wireless for a decade. Brilliant!
She does say, “Tesla didn’t believe in the electron, he thought relativity was pseudoscience.” Well, she got that one right! I think he called Einstein a fuzzy haired idiot?

Nikola Tesla November 1928 interview: “On the whole subject of matter, in fact, Dr. Tesla holds views that are startlingly original. He disagrees with the accepted atomic theory of matter, and does not believe in the existence of an “electron” as pictured by science.”“To account for its apparently small mass, science conceives of the electron as a hollow sphere, a sort of bubble, such a bubble could exist in a medium as a gas or liquid because its internal pressure is not altered by deformation. But if, as supposed, the internal pressure of an electron is due to the repulsion of electric masses, the slightest conceivable deformation must result in the destruction of the bubble! Just to mention another improbability…” – Nikola Tesla Article: “A Famous Prophet of Science Looks into the Future” (Popular Science Monthly)

The collective opinion of all the above, the highest authorities on the subject of electricity:

They said and I paraphrase:
‘All electromagnetic radiation is perturbations (disturbances) in a medium, compression and rarefaction – compressing and expanding (a 3 dimensional wave). The wave has no material properties of its own but those of the medium it propagates within. It proceeds from a source that may be a candle or a star, a TV transmitter or a loudspeaker as in sound. There is no difference between a sound and a beam of light, both propagate in the same way. Only frequency separates sound from light. The electromagnetic field is a wave in a medium – aether. The field has no material existence, no particles, it is an effect transmitted by the aether caused by a source of energetic vibration. The only thing that is been transmitted is energy, so how does the energy become particles? And the only thing that can be described as resembling particles is the wave itself consisting of a compression and a relaxation of the pulses that make-up the wave.’

electromagnetic wave
Dielectric Magnetic Field – Pulses

Maybe this is where the quantum guys went wrong?

Wiki: From a classical perspective in the history of electromagnetism, the electromagnetic field can be regarded as a smooth, continuous field, propagated in a wavelike manner; whereas from the perspective of quantum field theory, the field is seen as quantized, being composed of individual particles. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_field

The only quantisation is the compression/rarefaction of individual waves in the medium, particles are unnecessary. The justification is that particles become waves and waves become particles. How? Science has no answer.

‘There is no negative energy and therefore no negative electricity, it is attracted from more charge to less like water running downhill.’

Particles are a scientific addiction supporting materialism, a philosophical system which regards matter as the only reality in the world. This being the case how do they explain SPACETIME neither space nor time are material?

‘A DC electric generator is a mechanically spinning rotor inside a magnetic field -producing stator. The rotor is made of iron with conductor windings that supply the output. The output is as a result of the rotor passing through the magnetic field. There is no contact between rotor and stator and no exchange of particles. The output flows, as above, on the outside of the conductor as a *dielectric magnetic field*, a wave in the aether medium around the conductor.’

Consider: Albert Einstein stated:

“In the theoretical treatment of these electrons we are faced with the difficulty that electro-dynamic theory of itself is unable to give an account of their nature.” “For since electrical masses constituting the electron would necessarily be scattered under the influence of their mutual repulsions, unless there are forces of another kind operating between them the nature of which has hitherto remained obscure to us.” “Relativity”, by Albert Einstein, Random House Publisher, 1916, page 50…

Eric Dollard replys

These facts have been known from the initial invention of the “Vacuum Tube” by Sir William Crookes, leading to the extensive experimental work into atomic science by J. J. Thompson, and Nikola Tesla. It is here seen that the so-called electron is only a shadow, its apparent physical mass is only an electrical momentum. There is no rest mass to an electron. It is given here the electron is no more than a broken loose “hold fast” under the grip of the tensions within the dielectric lines of force. They are the broken ends of the split in half package of spaghetti. Obviously this reasoning is not welcome in the realm of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. Are we to believe that Einstein had no prior knowledge of the most prominent theoretical and experimental work of his time?

    1. Hi Someone
      Electricity flows in the space around conductors. Insulators are storage devices as in capacitors. This is not what they teach in college is it?


  1. I just browsed around Kathy’s channel named “Kathy Loves Physics & History”. It’s full of garbage and misinformation.

    I don’t understand why is she so frustrated while speaking about Tesla. Wardenclyffe Tower was supposed to use Radiant Energy through impulse current, NOT EM. Why didn’t she mention that?

    I am surprised that she claimed that she did “research” on Tesla. But from where? From academia textbooks? Does she did more research than Lindemann and Vassilator? I think I am more qualified to speak on Tesla than her. Lol.

    Seems she only puts pro comments and delete anti comments from her videos. Otherwise how nobody could realize her bias and hogwash?

    It would be better is she do some experiment to demonstrate her claims(like simple radio, induction motor etc), otherwise the science education is useless. I don’t think she has the competency to do it.

    Seems that channel is created to propagate scientism charisma and brainwash against natural science.


    1. Yes, I’ve seen Kathy’s videos and I may have written to her inviting her to my website. I was probably blocked. She doesn’t know what Radiant Energy means in Tesla terms. Such people are proud of their achievements in academia and looking at the truth is like summoning the devil. Basically she is brainwashed.
      I quite like people who criticise my writing, it gives me an opportunity to put them straight.


      1. Academicians rarely does any public experimental demonstration. They are loaded with paper bags and seminars.

        Let’s build a simple project. Build a simple radio transmitter which does ASK modulation. It receive a digital signal from laptop using UART. Take a picture in webcam through laptop. Connect the laptop to the built transmitter to transmit the image. Now build a receiver to demodulate ASK and restore the image and receive through another laptop and displays in a simple software. The maximum distance between Tx and Rx is say 10 kms.

        Now give this project to Master Kathy. Enjoy her competency.


  2. .
    The concept of AC was known till Faraday. Tesla never claimed he invented AC concept. Kathy’s debunking of Tesla as AC inventor is absurd and just pure straw man – trying to prove something which is never claimed.

    Wardenclyffe Tower was never completed. So saying it didn’t work is absurd.

    No mention of Tesla’a success in Colorado experiments.

    Why no mention of the DC impulse technology, which is still unknown to science? Many be Kathy believes wireless means ONLY EM. No other forms exists.

    Kathy seems to study her so-called primary materials from primary school textbooks. I can see her frustration while speaking on Tesla. Physicists don’t understand Tesla anyhow. For them Tesla was a poor scientist and poor Mathematician who only work on hit-and-trial basis. What could be more insulting than this? How much invention these mathematical physicists did? It’s good that Tesla wasn’t a scientist. Most scientists cannot invent anything.


    1. I thought she cherry picked the worst videos from YouTube. She will be doing a page on free energy videos next the ones with the round magnet and the LED.


  3. I just studies Maxwell’s first paper “A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field”. What I found that modern vector notions are more convenient than his original component form.

    It’s a misunderstanding from Tom Bearden that Maxwell’s original equations were written in Quaternions. They are not. They were simply written in component form. Quaternion he used much later to shorten the three x,y,z component into one equation using German letters.

    Also it’s another misunderstanding among many Tesla lovers that original Maxwell’s equation has some secret variable which are discarded by Heaviside. Well this is not correct. Most of them haven;t studied and compared the equations and their meaning. Modern vector notions (if generalized) has all the parameters which Maxwell had. Heaviside only eliminated potentials because he had no equipment to measure it. But it can be reintroduced by not using Lorentz gauge. Please see this paper:

    Click to access 0305098.pdf

    So I also felt disappointing after knowing this. But that’s the truth. By introducing new physical field S, the four equations has preserve everything what Maxwell found.

    Also Maxwell himself never believed in scalar fields and claims the transverse wave is the only wave which can propagate. See the following:

    “The equations of the electromagnetic field, deduced from purely experimental evidence, show that transversal vibrations only can be propagated. If we were to go beyond our experimental knowledge and to assign a definite density to a substance which we should call the electric fluid, and select either vitreous or resinous electricity as the representative of that fluid, then we might have normal vibrations propagated with a velocity depending on this density. We have, however, no evidence as to the density of electricity, as we do not even know whether to consider vitreous electricity as a substance or as the absence of a substance.”
    –A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field, pg. 100-101

    I hope we much encourage the work of Heaviside for making Maxwell’s work more practical.

      1. I have read that text. It’s from the pdf “True electromagnetism of Nikola Tesla”. It has nothing to do with what I am trying to say regarding Maxwell’s equations.

        It’s better to read Maxwell’s stuff by our own decide ourselves.

        Do you agree with my following points:
        1. Maxwell’s equations were not originally written in Quaternions.
        2. There is no secret parameter in the original equations.
        3. Maxwell never personally believed in longitudinal possibility.
        4. Heaviside only eliminated the potentials, which can be re-established by re-gauging as show in Vlaenderen.
        5. Modern vector form preserve everything what Maxwell wrote after adding A and ɸ potentials.

        Please explain.


      2. Sorry about that I thought Maxwell was included. I will get around to reading Maxwell but not much free time at the moment. As for your 5 points, I usually go along with Dollard regarding such things and his story is different to yours. Tesla believed in longitudinal and based his later technology on it. Dollard has replicated the same technology.
        This is the best I can find on Heaviside:
        Oliver Heaviside and William Gibbs — “streamlined” Maxwell’s original equations down to four simple (if woefully incomplete!) expressions. Because Heaviside openly felt the quaternions were “an abomination” — never fully understanding the linkage between the critical scalar and vector components in Maxwell’s use of them to describe the potentials of empty space (“apples and oranges,” he termed them) — Heaviside eliminated over 200 quaternionsfrom Maxwell’s original theory in his attempted “simplification.” …
        …Heaviside actually felt that Maxwell’s use of quaternions and their description of the “potentials” of space was “… mystical, and should be murdered from the theory …” which — by drastically editing Maxwell’s original work after the latter’s untimely death (from cancer), excising the scalar component of the quaternions and eliminating the hyperspatial characteristics of the directional (vector) components – Oliver Heaviside effectively accomplished singlehanded.This means, of course, that the four surviving “classic” Maxwell’s Equations — which appear in every electrical and physics text the world over, as THE underpinnings of ALL20th Century electrical and electromagnetic engineering, from radio to radar, from television to computer science, if not inclusive of every “hard” science from physics to chemistry to astrophysics that deals with electromagnetic radiative processes — never appeared in any original Maxwell’ paper or treatise! They are, in fact– “Heaviside’s equations!”…

        …Lest anyone doubt this is the case, they merely have to read a highly revealing paper on the subject by another renowned British mathematical physicist of this century, Sir Edmund Whittaker, titled simply “Oliver Heaviside” (Bulletin of the Calcutta Mathematical Society, Vol. 20, 1928-29, p.202); or, another overview of Heaviside by Paul J. Nahin, “Oliver Heaviside: Sage in Solitude” (IEEE Press, New York, 1988, p.9, note 3.).
        The end result was that physics lost its promising theoretical beginnings to becoming truly “hyperdimensional” physics … over a century ago … and all that that implies. http://geomagnetics.org/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderfiles/onphysicsandmore-finished.pdf
        According to Dollard Heaviside was working on undersea cables and only used that which was useful for getting the job done, and this is what he did, an incomplete job. Why has no one finished it?
