### Longer Path

According to Bernoulli's Principle, the greater the velocity of flow in a fluid, the greater the dynamic pressure, and the less the static pressure. In other words, slower-moving fluid exerts greater pressure than faster-moving fluid. The discovery of this principle ultimately made possible the development of the airplane.

With the airfoil, air flowing over the top has a greater distance to cover than the air flowing under the wing. The air at the top will flow faster to meet the other portion of the airstream, the air flowing past the bottom of the wing, when both reach the end of the airfoil. Faster airflow, as demonstrated by Bernoulli, indicates lower pressure, meaning that the pressure on the bottom of the wing keeps the airplane aloft.

I thought that here perhaps, was an inkling on to how to manipulate free energy. It appears the airfoil seperates the fluid of the air, and it is the air's search for equilibrium which gives us lift. There's some debate however that this theory, the so-called "Longer Path" theory, is actually correct.

"Despite the obvious problems with this "theory" in relation to lift of flat plates, symmetric airfoils, or inverted flight, the error is often repeated, even in recent works, and in otherwise reliable sources."

The faster a fluid (either gas or liquid) flows over a surface, the less time it has to push on that surface and so the less air pressure there is on that surface. In other words, a fluid moving over a surface creates an area of low pressure. The faster the flow, the lower the pressure. This is Bernoulli’s Law. When blowing over a strip of paper, greater pressures beneath the paper push it up. If you blow a strong enough wind over the top of a board while keeping the air underneath it stationary, you can lift the board just like a piece of paper. That's interesting, right? Could this at all be applied to pressure in the aether?

"When you blow air into the rear of the Hovercraft it makes the pressure rise inside the plenum chamber at the front of the craft. The air pressure you created by blowing lifts the front of the craft up and reduces the friction between the table and the paper. With the reduced friction and the air pressure from behind the craft the Blow Hovercraft starts to move forward. Air removes the friction between the table and paper by making a lubricating film between the two surfaces; this is the basic principle of all Hovercraft."

Now it's the thought of using the aether to lift stuff which reminds me of our old friend Edward Leedskalnin. Leedskalnin was rumoured to have used "magnetism" to build Coral Castle.

"Coral Castle is a stone structure located at the intersection of U.S. Route 1. It’s made of huge stones of coral, each weighing several tons. There are approximately 1,000 tons of coral rock used in the walls and tower alone. And, supposedly, it was put together by only one man. A small framed, barely 100 pound man. A man named Edward Leedskalnin.

Since the reclusive Leedskalnin spent nearly thirty years working mostly at night and away from prying eyes, no one actually saw him move the coral. Since no one saw the blocks actually being moved, no one can state for certain that the task was accomplished by Leedskalnin alone. The claim that Leedskalnin didn’t use modern (post-1920s) tools is obviously true, but the mistake is in assuming that modern tools are required to move the large blocks of coral.

Ultimately-and ironically-the solution may lie in Leedskalnin’s own simple explanation: that he did it using principles of weight and leverage. “I have discovered the secrets of the pyramids,” he said, employing the same methods used by ancient Egyptians. If Leedskalnin was being truthful, then the mystery is solved, for the methods by which the Egyptian pyramids could be constructed are well understood (see, for example, Mark Lehner’s 1997 book The Complete Pyramids)."

I can't leave Leedskalnin without taking a bit of his wisdom on magnetism, and electricity. Indeed, Leedskalnin presented electricity as magnetic current:

"Volt meters and ampere meters are one-sided. They only show what is called positive electricity, but never show the negative electricity…the positive electricity is composed of streams of north pole individual magnets and negative electricity is composed of streams of south pole individual magnets…Protons and electrons - Are you sure they are not the north and south pole individual magnets?

ONCE AND FOR ALL … YOUR PRECIOUS ELECTRONS ARE REALLY BOTH KINDS OF MAGNET !!It’s the True “BASE of ENERGY” , In fact it’s the true “BASE” of every single thing in EXISTENCE."
