Findings on "Levitation in Earth's E-field" Technology


The Charged Capacitor is essentially a Charged Particle



Consider, if you will, a simple high school physics experiment. A glass rod that has been rubbed with wool is brought into proximity with a metal sphere that is suspended by a thread and allowed to swing freely. The metal sphere is attracted to the charged glass rod. The explaination is simple. The charged glass rod forces the like charges in the metal sphere to the opposite side of the sphere and attracts the unlike charges in the sphere toward itself. The charged glass rod induces a charge seperation within the metal sphere, in effect, making the metal sphere a capacitor. I believe this to be a simple experiment that demonstrates the Biefield - Brown Effect. If the metal sphere were replaced with a parellel plate capacitor, the capacitor would be attracted toward the glass rod, or repelled from it, depending on the charge polarity of the capacitor. The amount of force would vary depending on the amount of charge density on both the rod and capacitor.

The logical extention to this experiment is that Mr. T. Townsend Brown was experimenting with charged particles within the earth's natural electric field.

Since Mr. Brown's capacitors were close to the negetive plate in the "earth -capacitor" they would tend to move just as the metal sphere above did. Due to charge seperation, in his case, the capacitor moves in the direction of the positive plate.

That leads to another conclusion. A three plate capacitor should be more effective than his two plate capacitors. A negetive charge on the outer plates and a positive charge on the interior plate. The outer plates shield the inner plate from the earth's electric field, hence shield the positive plate from any force. A three plate capacitor would behave more like a charged particle.
