Magnetic Current

If you have an interest (or even only a vague interest) in magnetism, or electricity, then I highly recommend this article. It's about magnetic current, and appears to have been written in 1945, by Edward Leedskalnin. A charming gem.

"Now I will tell you what magnetic current is. Magnetic current is the same as electric current is a wrong expression. Really it is not one current, they are two currents, one current is composed of North Pole individual magnets inconcentrated streams and the other is composed of South Pole individual magnets in concentrated streams, and they are running one stream against the other stream in whirling, screwlike fashion, and with high speed. One current alone if it be North Pole magnet current or South Pole magnet current it cannot run alone. To run one current will have to run against the other....

You have been wondering why alternating currents can run so far away from their generators. One reason is between every time the currents start and stopthere is no pressure in the wire so the magnets from the air run in the wire and when the run starts there already are magnets in the wire which do nothave to come from the generator, so the power line itself is a small generator which assists the big generator to furnish the magnets for the currents to run with. I have a generator that generates currents on a small scale from the air without using any -magnets around it....

The reason I call the results of North and South Pole magnet's functions magnetic currents and not electric currents or electricity is the electricity is connected too much with those non-existing electrons. If it had been called magneticity then I would accept it. Magneticity would indicate that it has a magnetic base and so it would be all right."
