The VIC is using the magnetic field to "restrict the current". There is little current flowing, but it's the number of turns that also increase the magnetic field?
If you study Eric Dollard's papers, he explicitly details two fundamental components of electricity: dielectric fields and magnetic fields. This stuff is straight from Mr. Tesla. Dielectric fields emanate from conductor to conductor--a beginning and an end. Magnetic fields are closed loops. Magnetic fields are associated with current and dielectric fields are associated with voltage. Electromagnetic (T.E.M. or Hertzian) waves are slowed to the speed of light due to the magnetic component. Longitudinal Magneto Dielectric (L.M.D.) waves have no magnetic component and as such are Pi/2 faster (minimum), since they do not have the rotational component T.E.M. waves do. Electricity as we know it is strictly found in T.E.M. waves. The Tesla coil is a means to go from these T.E.M. waves to L.M.D. waves. But there are a few tricks many overlook.
One such trick is the bucking coil filter; another is the spherical ball. Both of these devices filter the magnetic component of the T.E.M. wave, leaving mostly a pure L.M.D. wave. Now why would anyone want to do that...?
The reason, from everything I can gather is that L.M.D. waves are the purest form of electricity as found in nature. They contain no magnetic component which means there is no current within them. Yes, they can induce current, but there is a simplicity a lot of people fail to recognize. Start with Ohm's Law, V = I R. With a L.M.D. wave there is no "I" and since there is no "I', any value of "R" is insignificant. You simply have potential or better stated, a dielectric field. Some would argue with no current, you cannot have any power. I think Mr. Tesla himself dismissed this line of reasoning. Voltage can do work and Stan Meyer agrees.
So what happens if you expose water to a purely dielectric field, created by a L.M.D. wave?
Do you suppose Stan's VIC is actually a filter? That it holds back the magnetic field in a closed loop and allows the dielectric field to proceed on to the WFC? I happen to think this is a really good question and wish I new someone of true authority that could answer it. Unfortunately, all the real gurus I know are stuck in the T.E.M. world and refuse to accept Maxwell's original Quaternion equations as fact.
Other devices that I have worked on also REQUIRE L.M.D. waves to function. These device are designed to mix L.M.D. waves with T.E.M. waves at the correct ratios and phase angles to produce a more powerful T.E.M. wave at the output. If what Eric Dollard and others have deciphered from Mr. Tesla is correct, the fundamental principal behind all these so-called Free Energy devices is quite simple. And if Eric is wrong? Well, it's not likely any of these devices could work, but since I'm pretty confident at least one of them does, I'll stick to this methodology for a while longer.
