Im not sure if I am going to be making a point here or a digression But I have some thoughts. One of them is related to my fascination with how much the ancient people knew.

I saw in one of the posts on the other forum that someone had commented that "The rotating plasma was also produced by Kiril Chukanov and Nikola Tesla. In fact, David LaPointe's plasma demonstration is an improvement on Tesla's button lamp".

I was looking up Tesla's button lamp (which I know nothing about) and I found this comment which is something I hadn't actually fully realized:

"Today's scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality. (Nikola Tesla)

Sadly, our present state of mathematical physics shows just how correct Tesla was, where mathematical concepts like the Big Bang, Wormholes and time travel, String Theory, etc. now dominate physics (and have no relation to physical reality). "

One of the problems with our understanding exactly how much the ancient people did know is that they came to understand the world and the universe in a much different way than we do today probably on the basis of thousands of years of experimentation handed down over generations and generations. Our way of thinking is linear.

Someone else said that Mr. LaPoint is going to have to prove his theory mathematically - even if its right; its not right if he can't "prove" it with a blackboard and a piece of chalk.
