So you dismiss "The
Heaviside Signal" [version of the TEM Wave] as misguided. Please
confirm that the equations imply "The Rolling Wave", with
H causing E causing H. (""that's what the equations, ....
imply."" - Brian Josephson)
I am very much interested in what you say." - Ivor Catt
"I don't know -- it all comes out of the maths. You can I believe
include pressure and momentum in the theory, but these are 2nd.
order in the field strengths in contrast to the case of sound where
it is first order. You say Heaviside oscillated between 2 theories
but I'm not so sure these were different theories rather than different
forms of description.
You are assuming a force is necessary to make the wave move [No.
Ivor Catt], but a moving pattern is not the same as actual motion.
This is different from a sound wave where gas is actually moving.
Re cause and effect, the mathematician considers this as mere interpretation
and sticks to the equations. That quick response is about all I
have time for, I'm afraid. ([Later email]. Extra time would not
have added significant extra wisdom.)" - Prof. Brian D. Josephson
