The Vector Potential of physics, and Earth Energies

Electric charge in motion generates a magnetic field in the surrounding space. If electric charge is accelerated or decelerated, as can be done with an electrical oscillator, quanta of energy at the frequency of the fields travel perpendicular to the electric (E) and magnetic (B) field at the speed of light.

These three quantities are characteristic of EM radiation, which can vary in frequency from very low to very high, from micro waves to radio waves to infrared to visible light to ultra violet to cosmic rays.

The quantity "Vector potential" was originally introduced into EM equations to satisfy certain boundary conditions of the magnetic fields. The Vector Potential is more fundamental than the electric and magnetic field. That is to say, a changing vector potential induces an electric field, which in turn induces a magnetic field.

From standard electromagnetic potential theory:

The scalar potential f, for an irrotational electric field vector E is defined as

E = -grad f

The vector potential A for the magnetic field vector B can be written as:

B = curl A

In a quantum system, the vector potential appears directly in the wave equation, analogous to chemical potential. It is capable of producing effects through this quantum field pathway even if its electric and magnetic field componants are shielded. Such effects have been demonstrated on biological systems by application of a toroidal coil.

Dowsers are said to have the ability to locate water by detecting some form of subtle or earth energy. Dowsers are also said to have the ability to estimate frequencies imprinted into water. A British Professor of Bio-electrical Engineering, Cyril Smith, has developed vector potential sensitive instrumentation whose measurement of these frequencies matches that of the dowser estimates. The difficulty encountered was in the conversion of "quantum field resonance" into a time varying voltage or current that electric circuits could detect.

It was found that an alternating vector potential carries the frequency information which may be imprinted on water. However, it was also found that a magnetic field is also required to "format" the water to enable it to accept this vector potential frequency information.
