>> This is one of my favorite subjects. Obviously mine too, and thanks for your ideas and response. I notice that your experiment might have had a kind of low ratio of total brick mass to vibrating momentum energy. No trouble for a brick, but maybe hard to up-scale without some very powerful vibration source for a block of significant size. Maybe multiple synchronized units, and of course, resonance in the target. Interesting. There’s recent YouTube vids of a guy moving big objects around his garage using vibration, and of course there’s our beloved Vortexian Chris Tinsley (RIP) with his story of the old days and a giant hard drive walking across the server room using ‘special’ head-seek instructions. No doubt that this works and might in some circumstances be a viable method of actually transporting megaliths with just sound (and a crew of large dudes/animals with ropes. And beer). But a lack of such necessary circumstances in so many locations where these constructions exist (Peru especially), is part of the problem, in addition to the fact that I don’t see it explaining other megalithic evidence besides the horizontal transport issue. I’m looking for a single key. Sure, different processes could be broken out over multiple applications, and many demonstrations have been attempted to show that this or that could have been used, with most having a poor or unconvincing result. I contend that the single-principle idea would support the apparent ease and obvious massive extent with which the work was performed, in addition to being a good fit to the wide range of unexplained evidence. For a comprehensive megalith theory, I believe we need two things. First is a single principle hypothesis which explains multiple features found in the processes of cutting, finishing, fitting, horizontal and vertical transport, and ease of performing all of those tasks on extensive large scale work using relatively primitive techniques and tools. The second of course would be successful modern reproduction of those processes using the hypothesized principle. Also, I don’t really need to reference Hutchison’s work, fraudulent or not, to support this idea. It’s used more as a conceptual example (although I also believe it’s likely real) to explain a situation where under special conditions of confinement pressure, charge insinuates itself into and accumulates inside of metal crystalline structures and ionically disrupts them - like water soaking into dry clay or salt crystals. For Hutchison the special conditions are supposedly standing/travelling waves at high amplitude around the sample, and for exploding wires I assume it’s large-current /small-time deltas for a similar effect – bulk non-thermal structural disruption originating at a very fine scale. The point is that the basis for it with electric charge already exists conventionally elsewhere as well. Acoustic charging - let’s expand the definition for the moment to include a large momentum phonon energizing a single charged particle, like in solar radiation or linear accelerator. Add that to the idea of a huge number of small phonon bumps over time as I’ve proposed. Acoustic charging under that expanded definition seems to work great on poorly shielded spacecraft insulation and in accelerator-zapped Lichtenberg tchotchke sold on the internet. But why would more gentle acoustics allow greater useful or higher maximum charge accumulation? I suppose it’s the same reason I can’t make a big pile of playing cards on a card table by shooting them out of a compressed air cannon. If I manually lob them gently to the table, they’ll pile up better. Spacecraft insulation arcs out in failure when that last-straw particle impacts and triggers a cascading jail break of many other particles already resident as a charge cloud in the material. The energy required for a single electron to penetrate a meter of rock in one stroke is probably well over 1.0MeV, being somewhat rare in small cross-section even in solar radiation most days. See lunar rocks for example. Why not break that down into many small manageable steps at low energy? I think the place to start is to try slowly loading dielectrics internally with a single polarity using sound, and likely cymatics, to draw, guide, and accumulate charge from a natural external source like the sky or ground plane. I’m pretty sure this can be done in principle (I think I may have already done it), the big question is can it be scaled using relatively primitive systems against stone and achieve such a huge accumulated magnitude that it allows for controlled copper tool-tip/edge EDM, bulk stone softening to a moist-clay consistency, transmutations in cutting residue (EVOs etc.) and levitation effects. Any forum members remember playing with those tiny magnetically reactive bits appearing after carbon rods were arced underwater, and speculating transmutation and/or room temperature superconduction? Anyone see the vids of compass reactions near megalithic block cuts? Similar? Is that evidence of powerful electric or magnetic processes having been applied to the stones? - Rick From: MSF <foster...@protonmail.com> Sent: Wednesday, July 12, 2023 9:11 AM To: email@example.com Subject: Re: [Vo]:EVOs, Hutchison, and ancient megalithic tech This is one of my favorite subjects. Not Hutchison, but speculation about how the ancients were able to cut and transport those huge blocks of stone. It might be that electrical effects are involved, but I'm not sure that's necessary. Hutchison effects might be real, but those videos he made had some rather obvious primitive video fakery. At least that's my opinion. Here's an experiment I did longer ago than I care to remember. It's simplicity itself. I epoxied a small DC motor to the top of a brick and placed it in a sandbox. The motor had an eccentric weight attached to the shaft. Connected to the motor was a variable DC power supply. Obviously, the frequency of vibration could be controlled by varying the current to the motor. As the RPM of the motor increased to a certain level, the brick began to move. Depending upon small adjustments of the current, the brick might rotate in one direction or the other or shift slightly. When stabilized, the brick could be moved with the touch of a finger. You could see light under the brick through the oscillating sand. This doesn't exactly constitute levitation, but you could see how it could be interpreted that way. There are so many ways of creating sonic frequencies, it's hard to say how ancient peoples did it. There you have it. I encourage anyone reading this to replicate my little experiment and tell us what happened.
