: Hi Ed,

I would be inclined to agree with your accessment of the overlying forces if the coils were overlapping (laying on top of one another) but I woulld think this could be avoided with the wrapping of the coil be in a coned spiral (single wrap). If the tips of the cone were placed inward with many others cones also tips placed inward I would think that the maximum crushing force from the magnetic fields of all the cones would be the center of the tips. I say this because the magnetic fields emminating would not be just in the center of the coil but in all directions. Also to have the magnetic fields of each coil not be pushing the other coils away. what would happen if a diamagnetic material separated each of the coils from the others. please understand, I am speaking from ignorance here for I do not completely understand diamagnetis materials. yet. Do they absorb magnetic fields, divert them, reflect them or what? If you have any information of this or know where I could get it, i would appreciate you passing it on to me. I am also curious on whether any studies have been made on whether the coins (or other material crushed is crushed to a smaller size and then springs backed to normal molecular size when the field dissipates. I am not suggesting that this be tried with hydrogen since I don't believe the result could be controlled, at least not at this point. It is easy to see that if the magnetic fields produced by the coils (as you use them presently) might be capable of longer working(?) times if they could be contained. Could this not be done by containing the coils with a stronger material surrounding them with possible a diamagnetic material being used to insulate the magnetic fields created from one wire to the adjacent wires of the coils? Forgive my ignorance in this matter but I would feel this should deserve much further study if such is not already being done.
I am still left with many other unanswered questions concerning this but they would be too lengthy to ask here. I wish you all success in this endeavor. I would be interested in the metalurgical report if you wish to share it.
