Imagination Encircles The World

"I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world."
~~Albert Einstein

In his book "Simple Bodies of Chemistry", David Low suggests that oxygen is a hydrocarbonic compound that is 2 parts hydrogen to 6 parts carbon (H2C6). If I wanted to find one oxygen donutom, one half would consist of one part hydrogen, thereby implying the other half is 3 parts carbon (H C3). Oxygen, like most atoms, has a neutral electric charge.

A helium donutom is neutral because its charge is balanced between the hydrogen ion, and the electrion. I'm postulating that the electrion is not 1800 times smaller than the proton, but rather it is the same size, thereby giving it a charge which is 1800 times greater. Now that creates quite a variation in the difference between the two charges. In order for them to combine and create a neutral donutom, the gap between these charges has to be closed.

Franklin imagined electricity as being a type of invisible fluid that was present in all matter. When matter contained too little of the fluid it was negatively charged, and when it had an excess it was positively charged. Electric current is thus described as the rate of charge flow past a given point.

"Wind flows from areas of high pressure to areas of low pressure. This is due to density differences between the two air masses. Since stronger high-pressure systems contain cooler or drier air, the air mass is more dense and flows towards areas that are warm or moist, which are in the vicinity of low pressure areas in advance of their associated cold fronts. The stronger the pressure difference, or pressure gradient, between a high-pressure system and a low pressure system, the stronger the wind."

I think electric current is the fluid of the aether streaming not only from a high pressure area to a low pressure area - just like horizontal winds in a weather system - but also fluid streaming from a low pressure area to a high pressure area - similar to the vertical winds in a weather system. If you combine the two you get a loop, with energy going round the loop like the seats on a ferris wheel. This energy has to be moving at a constant rate because electricity has no frequency - but who's to say how variable that rate can be?

"According to Bernoulli's Principle, the greater the velocity of flow in a fluid, the greater the dynamic pressure, and the less the static pressure. In other words, slower-moving fluid exerts greater pressure than fast-moving fluid."

Previously, I have suggested that the electrion is a high pressure area with an excess of electric fluid, and that this is why it has such a high electric charge. I think that a charge is a vortex in the fluid of the aether. A problem arises though when I try to explain the behaviour of a high charge. Normally in weather systems, high pressure systems are synomynous with bright sunny days and calm weather - they are not reknowned for being centres of high activity.

Anticyclones are high pressure areas. With weather systems, in high pressure areas, the pressure increases towards the centre from the periphery. Vertical winds are drawn down into the centre of a high pressure system, whereas vertical winds move up the centre of a low pressure area. Low pressure systems are commonly known as cyclones. In the northern hemisphere, cyclones turn counterclockwise while anticyclones turn clockwise (in the southern hemisphere the direction is reversed).

"The greater the difference in air pressure between two competing systems, the greater the wind. And the greater the surface area covered by low pressure, the greater the size of the area of wind will be. Since strong wind is typically associated with storms, and since storms are characterized by low pressure, surf forecasters typically track and look for developing areas of low pressure, preferably large ones."

I looked for examples of high pressure systems in nature which might help explain the "stormy" potential energy of the electrion, but violent weather, such as hurricanes and tornadoes, is always associated with low pressure systems. As it happens there is supposed to be such a thing as a high pressure hurricane, but unfortunately it cannot be found here on Earth unless we have a good telescope, and that's because it belongs to another planet - Jupiter to be precise.

"The Great Red Spot, located in the southern hemisphere, holds title as Jupiter's largest anticyclone; spanning 12,500 miles wide, it is large enough to swallow Earth two to three times over.

Unlike the cyclonic storms on Jupiter, Earth's hurricanes and storms are associated with low-pressure systems and dissipate after days or weeks. The Great Red Spot, in comparison, is a high-pressure system that has been stable for more than 300 years, and shows no signs of slowing down."
