is now thirty years since the "Position
Statement" (below) was written. Note that our key paper "Displacement
Current" had been rejected throughout the world. A year later it
was published in Wireless World, but ignored for the next thirty years,
for instance recently by Professor
Lewin . I told May Chiao
of “Nature Physics”, an offshoot of “Nature”, that if she published an
article which said that a capacitor was a transmission line, that would
be the end of her editorial career; certainly if the article mentioned
Displacement Current. When I asked her whether electromagnetic theory was
part of the remit of “Nature Physics”, she said “Yes.” However, she never
replied to my letters and emails. I received one email only from her
boss, when she briefly said that they could not enter into any
seminars continued regularly
for ten years. Companies sent their staff to them. Some engineers
attended twice, and one did three times. Every attender gave a positive
report except one.
seminars were profitable, and the profit was used to publish books with
our theories, which were also given to those who attended the seminars. I
turned into a “publishing house”, and we were surprised to find that
there was no obstruction when we used this technique to get our theories
into books into the British Library, where they would be available to
researchers for ever into the future. Also, the books were profitable,
although nearly all out of print.
next development was the www. Having experienced so much censorship, I
played safe by having websites in more than one country. Most of the
books are now on the www. See "Electromagnetism
1" , "Digital
Hardware Design" ; “Digital Electronic Design” vol 1 , vol 2 ; “Electromagnetic
1 , vol
2 ; "Oliver
Heaviside, the Man" .

to communicate advances made more than a year ago have been blocked by all
the professional journals and institutions, so that by now there is a very
large gap between the C- D-W state of the art on the one hard and the
material they are communicating on the other.
Catt slipped in 110 words into the IEEE Trans. Comput. to the effect that a
capacitor is a transmission line, but C - D - W have had no success in
communicating any further. A paper entitled "Maxwell's Displacement
Current" has been rejected by some 20 journals in Britain and the
U.S.A The dialogue on this matter with the IEE [now IET] (who refused
to give reasons for rejection) was bitter, culminating in a row at the
IEE's A.G.M. for 1977. It will be renewed at the 1978 A.G.M. , probably.
June 1977 C - D - W tried another route towards airing the subject of
digital design leading to a discussion of E-M theory by holding a seminar
at THEOBALD's COLLEGE, WALTHAM CROSS, HERTS.
attended from major companies and the 48 hour seminar was a big success. An
identical seminar will be held in October 26 - 28, 1977.
Current was pushed C - D - W at the seminar, and the oft rejected paper on "Displacement
Current" was given to each attender.
£200 profit from the first seminar plus the hoped for profit from the second
is expected to fully fund the printing of a text book which will contain a
few of our E-M theory disclosures. Further disclosures will follow with the
addition of further chapters.
