Thanks for your fine reply!
Herb Wachspress' original patent can be viewed here. [email protected] document view
You need to be aware that he started by winding his cones in the traditional solenoidal (like latitude on a globe) and thus consumed a lot of current. It threw him off for a long time. He later changed to torroidal (longitudinal) windings and discovered that this was a million times more effective.
Other patent info can be gleaned here: Longitudinal electromagnetic levitator - US Patent 5887018
For further information regarding Wachspress and his further experimentation with cones, vortices and anti-gravity look here:
You need to have some patience to go through this site - and not everything is coherent - but there are many gems of information that would be useful for the serious investigator.
As basic background information regarding the 3- or 4-dimensional aspects of the vortex - the basic creative principle of Nature - you might be interested to read this: Basic energy unit
The main thrust of all this is the fact that Walter Russell's basic static cube wave field can be thought of as 6 bases of cones that thrust inward with their apices to all meet at the very center - at what Russell calls "corner reflectors" or "radar reflectors" because the generoactive effort of compression simply cannot go beyond that center point and MUST be reflected back to its origin. It is the illusionary formation of expansion rings from that very center - at 90 degrees from the creative thrust - that throws us off and we don't see the underlying causes - only the effects.
I think that it would be relatively easy to duplicate Wachspress' 'discoveries' with Russellian insight and to build a compact and very effective levitator - the perfect anti-gravity device.
Yet, this same geomatric configuration would also be useful to explore the conversion of substances - and I don't want to call that 'transmutaion' because Russell says that transmutation as we know it does not exist - because, in that static cube, the two cones at the poles would constitute the compressive effort, generating the necessary pressures toward each other and the surrounding four equatorial radiating cones would be the expansive effort - and you know that you cannot have one without the other.
I was thinking of using SOUND as the energy concentration medium for this exploitation and, instead of using speakers, I would use transducers - they move more air. Wachspress has some info on that on his web site.
Let me know your thoughts regarding this subject - and thanks for listening!
