Plagiarism Catt mentioned once only. The rest seems to be attributed to someone else. It is also mixed up with non-Catt material. Electromagnetic Theory vol. 2 by Ivor Catt pub 1979 237 The nature of space and ether EMT vol 2 p236-237 "Space is the ability to accomodate energy" .... The signal is launched from A The signal resides in the space between A and B .... .     Plagiarism The Nature of Space ~ Space itself is the ability to accommodate energy. Consider for a moment the following illustration: A signal (energy) is transmitted from point A to point B. A and B are separated by a finite distance. Consider three periods of time: 1) The signal is launched from A. 2) The signal resides in the space between A and B. 3) The signal arrives at B.   @@@@@@@@@@@@@@   Electromagnetic Theory vol. 2 by Ivor Catt pub 1979 p241 But we have not yet arrived at volume, which implies distance (space) at this point in the argument. All we have so far is c and Zo. Therefore µ, [epsilon] must be defined in terms of them Plagiarism As yet we have not arrived at volume, which implies real space. At this point in our discussion we have merely described c and Zo. Therefore, we can only define µ and [epsilon] in terms of them. @@@@@@@@@@@@@@ Displacement current Conventional electromagnetic theory proposes that when an electric current flows down a wire into a capacitor it spreads out across the plate, producing an electric charge which in turn leads to an electric field between the capacitor plates. The valuable concept of continuity of electric current is then retained by postulating (after Maxwell) [reference 1] a "displacement current", which is a mathematical manipulation of the electric field E between the capacitor plates which has the dimensions of electric current and completes the flow of "electricity". Plagiarism The Fallacy of Displacement Current ~ Conventional electromagnetic theory proposes that when an electric current flows down a wire into a capacitor it spreads out across the plate, producing an electric charge on the plate which in turn leads to an electric field between the capacitor plates. The valuable concept of continuity is then retained by postulating "after Maxwell" a displacement current. This current is a manipulation of the electric field (E) between the capacitor plates which has the dimensions of electric current and completes the flow of electricity in the circuit. ivor@ivorcatt.com
