    Thanks so much for increasing my basic understanding of our fantastic electric universe!

    Thanks for the book recommendation, will give it a look. Proud to say that Rankine, Thomson and Watt all made their various breakthrough insights here in my home city of Glasgow

    I am an Electric Universe advocate completely. Even helped out at the UK EU conferences in 2018/19 and mingled with Wal and the team, best people I’ve met. However, I am revising the notion that the ‘electron’ is a particle. I just don’t see evidence for that. I think the answer lies in ‘field’ theory.

      @Real Bounty Perhaps you would be interested in the ideas of Halton Arp and others from that era. Halton Arp's idea is that matter is created out of the galactic core from something that physically exists in this universe, not from another dimension or from another universe.
      Here is a paper showing that matter is created from a pure Poynting flux, out of the galactic core, and neutrons are created along the polar jets.
      It seems that in a manner similar to the Nikola Tesla radiant energy experiment, the galactic ring current separates the magnetic flux from the electrons and other matter, and matter is created from the pure magnetic flux along the polar jets.
      I think it was Nikola Tesla that stated that matter is created from the Ether medium in infinitesimal whirls. It does seem that neutrons are created along the polar jets from a pure Poynting flux out of the galactic core.

      @Joe Deglman Ok, I'm not a physicist, but this much I understood: only objects can physically exist and act on each other. Abstract concepts cannot affect bodies/objects because they do not exist in a physical sense. "Space", is an abstract concept, simply: the absence of objects, NOTHING.
      Physics is the study of objects and their relationships.
      Philosophy is the study of abstract concepts and their relationships.
      Rationality is: taking into account the difference between concept and object.

      Wow, this comment thread is fascinating and I remain grateful for good folks like to figure out how energy really works in the micro and macro universe.

      @Real Bounty There is the idea that an electron is an "end terminal" out of "counterspace," what ever that means.
      The problem with that idea is that no one has ever made an electron just appear out of nothing.
      CERN can strip an electron from a hydrogen atom and store it. An electron can also be reintroduced to a proton to make a hydrogen atom.
      But so far no one has made an electron just appear out of "counterspace" around a proton to make an "electron."
      If this idea of end terminal out of counterspace was right, then an ionized hydrogen atom or proton ought be able to just create another electron out of counterspace. So far no such creation has ever occurred. An electron must be reintroduced, or an electron must decay out of a neutron.
      So far the logic dictates that an electron is a particle which decays out of a neutron, and then a double-layer or dielectric condenses around said electron to create the mainstream version known as electron. Quantum computing has discovered that an electron has a magnetic field around it that can be induced to spin, as we can do in quantum computing.
      This problem also presents itself when CERN tries to create a so-called "antihydrogen" atom from so called "anti-protons" and and positrons. There is a double layer or magnetic field around them that keep them from going together. A resonant frequency is involved that must be dealt with to get the two to merge.
      No one has ever created a positron out of counterspace either. A positron must be captured by decaying one out of heavier elements, storing them, and them introducing the positron to the "anti-proton," to make an "anti-hydrogen" atom. No such "end terminal" creates itself out of "counterspace."

      That is an interesting question! By "particle" do you actually mean "object"? I ask because I think that in physics only objects exist, that is, something that has form and localization. If it does not have that, it must be an abstract concept, but that would be a question of philosophy less than of physics.

    This is written in a way even children can follow. I wonder if he wrote it with the intention of it being used that way. Your reading was very dramatic too lol
