I hope to grasp a better understanding of electromagnetic radiation. The torus is our magnetic field. With electromagnetic radiation, the electric field is perpendicular (at a right angle) to the magnetic field. The longitudinal axis on our torus is our electric field. This would explain many things about the relationship between the electric and magnetic fields. Of interest, another place where we have found the electric field perpendicular to the magnetic field is on Foucalt's disc, where the eddy-currents are perpendicular to the applied magnetic lines of force.
Foucalt's disc uses a DC supply from a battery to power an electromagnet. It is thought that the electric current flowing through the wire produces a magnetic field. It is perhaps, more the other way round. The magnetic field is always there, because the aether is always here. An electric current is the product of where we have managed to induce the aether. This induction of the aether also produces what we percieve as a magnetic field. The longitudinal axis on the outside rim of the torus, moves into the core of the torus. As the longitudinal axis is condensed, the electric field is formed, and we are able to 'see' it attached to the magnetic field to form electromagnetic radiation.
A coil of wire wrapped around a bar magnet is mimicking the longitudinal axis of our torus. The longitudinal axis being the electric field. The coil of wire elongates the electric field. Rather than simply passing straight through the core of the torus, the electric field's journey is being stretched out. The core of the conductive wire is acting as the elongated core of the torus. The core of the torus becomes a vortex. We are now falling down the rabbit hole. The torus, with its inner core stretched, is no longer a humble donut-shape, but something more like a rifle-barrel. If you look down into the core of the torus you may well see sinusoidal waves taking shape...
I thought this next animation sums up where we are right now. You can see the core of the torus being stretched inside the coil. The rings illustrate the longitudinal axis passing through the core of the torus. The rings are perpendicular to the magnetic field, and they represent the electric field..... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ez42Xk261o&feature=related
An electromagnet with a moving core, or plunger, is called a solenoid. When electricity is applied the plunger can either be pulled into the coil, or it can be set-up to push the plunger out, depending on the direction of the current. The direction of the current will dictate whether the solenoid is a push or a pull - it cannot be both. Convention states that the direction of current depends on polarity. Unfortunately, I cannot simply say that the direction depends on polarity, because in my Universe, electricity flows in both directions and forms a double helix. It flows from a higher potential to the lower, and vice versa.
The aether moves inside the torus, but perhaps it is better to write that the torus moves inside the aether. An electric field is the core of our torus. The core of the torus is twisted into a double helix. While the aether flows into the core - something flows out - and while the aether flows out of the core - something flows in. This partner is of course the fluid of the aether working in opposition to itself. A vortex is the only way in which a fluid may move through itself. At the openings of the torus, top and bottom so to speak, the fluid flows in both directions. If you map this out - a double helix with an even number of turns and then draw a loop at either end - you find that one loop flows in a clockwise direction, while the other loop flows in a counter-clockwise direction. I think this offers us a tantalising clues as to why we have polarity, and how magnetism works.
I'm holding in my hands a skipping rope. I double it over, and give it a few twists to create a double helix. Pulling at opposite ends of the helix, I can see the rope slide elegantly over itself in both directions. It gives the effect of a smooth laminar flow. If this movement is taking place at the speed of light, should we then perhaps expect to find friction? In a vortex, the speed and rate of rotation of fluid are greatest at the centre, and decrease progressively with distance from the centre. This centre acts as the cylinder which the helix coils around. Something's happening in this centre - but what?
