Subject: RE: Free Energy and Magnetism at the Molecular Level
Thanks very much for the donation. It is much appreciated, and will be put to a very good use on the projects.
Magnetism is indeed still very much a research subject.
Materials science studies magnetism at all levels, including in the lattice of materials, the molecule, the atom, the nucleus, and for fundamental particles.
There are about 200 or so distinct magnetic effects. Only about half are thoroughly understood. The other half range from understood some, to not really understood at all.
There are some 17 or more different classifications of magnetism as well.
A major new area is the area of spintronics, or controlling and flipping magnetic spin.
So yes, scientists are studying everything they can think of on magnetism.
Magnetic field and electrical field can be changed into one another, or partially so, by change of frames.
One thing they have long ignored for the EM field (both the electrical and magnetic fields) is the part played by the source charge, from which observable EM energy is continuously emitted to form the external EM fields and potentials of the source charge. Yet there is no OBSERVABLE energy input to the charge. The standard classical EM theory and electrical engineering implicitly assume (erroneously) that all EM fields, EM potentials, and every joule of EM energy in the universe is freely created out of nothing, by the associated source charges.
In short, the present classical models implicitly assume that every charge, and every field, and every joule of EM energy in the universe is a total violation of the conservation of energy law. This serious flaw in the model is hidden from the students, few of whom ever even realize it. Neither do very many of the present professors.
So yes, magnetism is still very much a developing science, and it looks like it will still be developing much more, over the next century.
Again, the donation is really appreciated and will be of very good use on the ongoing projects.
