In the post "Flow of Qi Through a Circuit" was described how a current of qi will flow through a wire circuit, if the wire does not cross over itself, and if a TB contacts the wire at some point (the quartz crystal in the TB should be aligned parallel to the circuit and as close to the wire as possible).
When we were experimenting with such things last February at his
shop, Marcus had the idea that we wind the wire around the
outside of an egg-shaped form and then again back through a hole
through the major axis of the egg.
Engineer Thomas built us an egg-shaped form out of styrofoam,
having a hole through the center, so that we could test out the
idea. At the time we used a PVC pipe which would fit the center,
around which to wrap the pipe. At home I used a wooden dowel
(actually a section of a mop handle) for the same purpose. Here
is the dowel with the wire wrapped about it one time:
In the photo it is suspended from above by a string.
Now the pole is inserted in the egg-shaped styrofoam and wound
once around the egg:
(from the back of the egg);
(the first view rotated
clockwise about 80 degrees);
(the first view totated 180
(the first view rotated
clockwise 270 degrees).
The little square wooden knob on the bottom is screwed into the
end tod the wooden dowel to hold the egg from slipping down.
At this point the apparatus does nothing. Only when attaches a
TB does it have an effect. I tried using two different types of
TBs: the one shown
"here" and one made by a small conventional type, having cut
a notch to the crystal:
In the photo just the top of the crystal is visible in the
center at the end of the notch.
Here is the egg with the first tb attached:
(the positive end of the
crystal is pointing downward)
and here is the egg with the second tb attached:
(again the positive end of
the crystal points downward along the wire).
After the TB is applied (in either form) a current of qi begins
to flow through the wire counter-clockwise (view from above).
Thus it flows down around the outside and up around the pole.
As with a CB, this device has a strong induction effect on the
qi of its surroundings. But the effects of the two devices are
not the same. Both devices pull negative qi down from the sky
above. The CB transforms the negative qi to positive qi, and
sends it back up into the sky again in a laser line beam. The
device described here, which I shall call a "double vortex"
operates differently however:
(1) a swirling (counter-clockwise viewed from above) sphere of
positive qi is formed just below it;
(2) positive qi moves out from the ball through space to the
sides and below;
(3) positive qi concentraces in the ground below and moves out
through the ground through a large radius.
Below is a schematic:
In the schematic above, the square shows the area in which the
egg is enclosed; the blackd and green indicate the string or
cord which is holding up the apparatus; the light blue arrows
above show the negative qi coming down to the egg; the red ball
shows the positive qi swirling below the apparatus, the solid
brown at the bottom shows the concentrated qi spreading out in
the ground below. The black ball inside the red sphere is a blob
of negative qi which is surrounded by the positive qi.
The apparatus must be high enough above the ground so that the
red ball does not touch the ground for the it to have strong
effect. In general, two meters high should bring it above the
If the TB is removed from the egg, the field in the ground
disappears almost instantaneously. When the TB is attached
again, the field of qi in the ground begins to form again, but
it will take some minutes before it extends far out.
Although we have spoken of an "egg" throughout this post, I have
found that a "sphere" shaped object seems to do equally well.
Obviously I have left many questions about this unanswered, but
this post is already over-long. In the next post, I will say
something of how this field may be used.
