Educate myself, where...?
« on: December 07, 2006, 04:57:01 PM »
Hi Guys

I want to try & understand something about the electronics side of things & so eventually try some experiments myself.  Alot to catch up on I know!

Anyway, I've read on many sites that the information as regards how electricity, magnetism, etc works has been withheld since 1930's & education now doesn't cover these areas properly.

So my question is where to start reading up on this 'withheld' info?

I currently have a very thick elctronics / eletrical technicians book which I'm going through; but is this any use given the above.
I thought that I'd try to learn (some of) the established thinking on the subject before trying to track down the 'withheld' info.

                             Try searching "all about circuits", its a page that covers the basics in real time for you to see.

Also try out for a great little java applet that allows you to play around with sims of all kind of things. You can even d/l the sim to run local, tho you will have to install Sun Micro's java first to use it.

Have fun!

Just take into consideration that "lethal" voltages can and will be present doing this kind of thing. If you dont know, test it before you touch it. Plain and simple.

I don't believe so much that information is suppressed. I believe that someone comes up with a theory and then a lot of people as well as the original person try to prop up that theory and before long it will be taught in schools as a fact. My advice is don't believe any thing. Find things out for yourself and question every thing. Even your mum and dad lie to you. Not deliberately but because they themselves were indoctrinated.

The misdirections are costing us heavily. Look at the state of the world today. It is not normally who tells the truth that is heard but whom ever shouts loudest.

Probably he is referring to the maxwells original equations which consisted of 20, and we are now only taught 4 of them or perhaps the non-diverged heaviside flow which was left out because it was thought no more of it could be made to enter the circuit, basically I think Lorentz couldnt handle the maths so he simplified it, now this is what we get taught!

My advice would be to study all the normal books, then look for whats missing, otherwise you cant tell whats missing or why, but you wont really be able to just buy a book of the shelf with the missing things in it, because they are not even taught to phsyics teachers anymore, so what are we to do?!  Of course you could always go study electronics at college?
