"I have found that in these systems the use of a conducting sheath or screen around the line conductors and well grounded, or even brought into proximity to external conductors or large bodies, is attended by an actual and generally a serious loss of energy. I therefore maintain the sheath either entirely isolated or connected directly or inductively to the ground, through a path which will practically prevent the passage of currents over it. I have also found that when a continuous insulated sheath or screen is employed, there is greater liability to loss of energy by inductive action, for unless the sheath or screen be considerably shorter than the current waves passing in the conductor, electro-motive forces will be set up between different points in the sheath, which will result in the passage between such points of induced currents. I, therefore, divide up the sheath or screen into short lengths, very much shorter than the wave lengths of the current used, so that the grounding of any one of such lengths or the approach thereto of a large body will result in an inappreciable loss, or at most a small local draining of the energy, while the tendency of currents to flow between different points in the sheath is effectually overcome. The function of the sheath as a static screen for preventing the dissipation of the electric energy, however, requires for its complete effectiveness an uninterrupted conducting partition or screen around the conductor. I attain this respect in the case of a sectional screen, by causing the ends of the insulated divisions or sections of the same to overlap, interposing a suitable insulating material between the overlapping portions. By means of a conductor or conductors thus protected, I may transmit with slight loss and to great distances currents of very high potential and extremely high frequency."
Both straight ground and inductive or capacitive devices to limit losses. But he does say that you can use it completely isolated or in static mode as well in the case of extreme voltage or extreme frequency without real losses.
Although I think the Bedinin machine might use this radiative effect to gather charges around the batteries (Virtual grounds) and stimulate them to be drawn into the batteries It has to have some real losses since they chose not to use screening on the lead up wires and switching systems.
Like you were saying in your newest video, If we could find a way to balance the system so that we could generate as much from the negative side as it takes or run the positive split then we might be able to create a better fulcrum like effect increasing both sides as in a push pull system.
Listen I know you don't like the anti electron view point but you just might have to in order to figure out an analogous reference to water.
One fact is that the electric flows in the conductor and the current is drawn into the wire. If you have a charge pump that pushes voltage and attracts and yet rejects the current then you get the effects of plasma discharge from the emission point. But if you allow the plasma to flow around the system you could scoop off the plasma either in electric potentials or real current when it flows around a coil or wire.
Getting the circuit correct is the issue right now. You are doing good in that department. Remember Tesla had his analogous mechanical versions of everything he tested. From turbines to fluid diodes.
Keep up the good work!
May (the Universe) Bless you and your Family.
