In order to get some clue about the origin of the so-called "Electric charge" I would go back to Ed's test with rubbing the piece of rubber, spraying salt grains and push them with a toothpick, watch how they behave and expand this experiment
Another important motivation we had in mind before writing this book was to offer teachers and students the main tools to achieve scientific autonomy. To do this, we quote sections of the most important works by the scientists who made great and fundamental discoveries in electricity. We also show how to perform experiments illustrating their findings utilizing low cost instrumentation. In this way we hope the readers will attain a scientific independence in several respects: how to build instruments, how to perform measurements, how to formulate concepts and theories to clarify or explain their findings, etc.
Nowadays the majority of physicists accept Einstein’s theories as correct. We show this is untenable and present an alternative theory which is much clearer and more reasonable than the previous ones. We know that these are strong statements, but we are sure that anyone with a basic understanding of physics will accept this fact after reading this book with impartiality and without prejudice. With an understanding of relational mechanics, we enter a new world, viewing the same phenomena with different eyes and from a new perspective. It is a change of paradigm, considering this word with the meaning given to it by Kuhn in his important work. This new formulation will help put physics on new rational foundations, moving it away from the mystifications of this century...We believe the better way to create critical minds and to motivate the students is to present to them different approaches for the solution of the same problems, showing how the concepts have been growing and changing throughout history and how great scientists viewed equivalent subjects from different perspectives.Relational Mechanics and Implementation of Mach’s Principle with Weber’s Gravitational Force by André Koch Torres Assis
Jehovajah, I have no clue how you brought in your plasma ? or why do you think that there is an aetherthat made of plasma ? maybe you can explain where I can see this plasma ?
