Ed gave the blueprint in his writings.Ed knew the "knowledge of the serpent". Very simple concept, but takes a certain frame of mind and discipline to apply to its fullest. Ed had some personal issues that prevented him from reaching his perceived goal.
A magnet is Ed's magnets caught in a loop. Ed's magnets are the aether, spacetime, the divine light, gravity, or whatever you want to call it. The basic medium disturbed by a force.
Gravity, regardless of what it actually is, causes an aggregation of smaller clumps into larger clumps. When the gravitational attraction exceeds the resistance of an individual clump, that clump is rearranged, releasing energy counter to the gravitational force. Simply put, the more protons you have, the more gravity, which pulls them closer. As they pull closer, it warps the electron or whatever field that surrounds the nuclei. It causes what they call the negative EM force to push outwards. You wind up with a barrier between that force, which may be "space", and the nuclei. Add more gravitational pressure and you start forcing apart and/or fusing the nuclei, playing havoc with their own little magnetic loops.
You have an EM bounce back as you squish things together
The only way you could use an extraterrestrial body is as a focus point. Meaning, using the ideas of Ed's magnets going in straight lines, you focus a beam to it and use it to complete a more concentrated bipolar path. Like pointing a light at it and the beam bounces back to the originating point, completing a circuit. That is a whole bunch of energy to do it that way, and would likely result in the planet being smoked. However, low power things like thought or picking up vibrations may very well work.
The biggest problem is knowing where the damned thing is. The sun is 2 degrees past where you see it, and changes constantly, as do all other bodies, your included. Saturn is something like 20 degrees at this time, I believe.
The time lag of light travel. Everthing is victim to it.
Bouyancy is more like what he used. Change the density of something around something and you will make it change its place.
The knowledge of the serpent at its most basic is that when you squeeze something it has to be strong enough to resist, or to move perpendicular to the force applied.
It is way beyond us to know what time and space is or isn't. We are on the inside looking out. "Space" as an emptiness cannot exist. "Space" as a medium disturbed by a force can. Think of an egg or a seed sprouting. Does a fish know it is in water?
The matrix of a material comes about because of the forces it encounters. Gravity and EM on its basest level. They got knit that way. The frequencies and capacitances are effects, not causes.
It is the matrix of the material that determines its resistance to outside force. But they will ALL succumb if enough force is applied.
Ed reduced material to 1/100th the size of a grain of salt. Doing that to rock salt is a good trick. Wonder if it was rock or Morton's he was referring to. He had some good eyes to see that small. I am really curious as to how he did it.
The earth is like a spherical capacitor. A negative shell up in the ionosphere, and a relative positive us down here. I think a LOT of thought should be given to trying to short that puppy out.
There is a theory that man once thought he could control his environment, and changed the world to suit him. Tried to tune it up to suit himself.
Any unnatural draw on that circuit will result in catastrophic results for many of the components. You, me, and everyone else. Kirchoff. Ohm.
Any change that bypasses the natural flows of energy of this planet will change the equilibrium of this planet.
The earth is a capacitor. A spherical one. Ionosphere on the outside, and ground as, well, ground. The atmosphere acts as a dielectric. Deserts make great capacitors. Silicon on the ground and dry air. Relatively static charges.
Read Ed and see how "magnetic" circuits are created and can be manipulated. Make a loop of a conductor and apply a source of Ed's magnets. You can use a battery. You can use a magnet. You can use the energy released from something that magnets run around in. Like decaying sweet potato or a freshly killed animal.
Hmm, Cain was a farmer, Abel was a shepherd. Who did that god favor the most?
The story of the tower of Babel said man was building a stairway to heaven. He was prevented from doing so by language. We have a tendancy to look at things as nouns. For instance, THE electron or THE proton, etc. Gives a sort of false individuality to parts of a larger process. Get lost in the forest counting the leaves that way.
One of the reasons why ol' uneducated Billy Bob can do some things on the fly while it takes the educated engineers forever to figure out how to do something. He just knows it. May not understand it, but has a good enough grasp of how it works to create and modify as needed. Of course, a bit of caution goes with that. Otherwise you get the "Hey Bubba!! Watch this!!" result.
Parts are parts, energy are energy. Depends on how you make the connections. As Travis J. Redfish's daddy used to say, "Anything will work iff'n you let it."
Magnets are not Ed's magnets. It is a collection of those magnets around what he called neutral material arranged in such a way as to produce something magnetic. The flux is not something monolithic, but a give and get between some very tiny particles, meaning the flux from the bar magnets is composed of many streams, and not necessarily all going the same way. Lots of little eddys.
Think about it. Electricity and magnetism are supposed to move in a spiral path. If they are all moving in the same direction they would repel each other. They could never lay right next to each other if they had a magnetic charge.
In a nutshell, here is the BIG secret, though it is not a secret at all.
Regarding OUR universe and the mass in it. All of our matter is surrounded by a "negative" field, or a field that repels a like field. Therefore, when a collection of this matter starts in motion, any other collection of like matter in its way will bump heads with it. Depending on the construction of this matter, when the one in motion encounters the other one, it will tend to push that one in the direction it is moving. But only if it hits in a straight line, otherwise it will knock it off on a tangent. Picture billiard balls getting hit by the cue ball.
Because of inertia, which is actually the reaction time of the mass trying to regain its equilibrium, the struck mass can either split apart, or wrap itself round the striking object. The point of impact becomes a fulcrum.
The mass of that traveling object will try to displace a like volume in the object it strikes. As it squeezes in it imparts force that results in a right angle transfer of its velocity, but the right angle effect is a result of a more complex striking and recovery. Refer to the billiard balls again. Squeeze 3 together in a triangle. Look at the angular relationship, and how it changes as one is squeezed in between the other two. But more properly, take a fourth ball and see the relationships as you push into the middle of the three. Take into account the spin imparted, also.
This is the basic mechanics of the displacement of space/time or whatever you call it. One ball represents the smallest possible thing that has "volume". But that could be a tetrahdron instead of a sphere.
But the net effect is that there is a right angle transfer of energy. Magnetism is the cumulative effect of the struck mass trying to keep itself together. That flux is motion. Ed's perpetual motion holder is a magnetic flux captured and given a path to follow for eternity. Or until it is interrupted, and then it backfeeds.
This is a dynamic that works from the subatomic scale to the universal scale. Atom or star, they will follow the same general pattern. It is all a matter of relative strengths and volumes.
