Here are two illustrations of a Van de Graff generator:
The Van de Graff generator's operation sets up a relative positive charge on the sphere or dome, which of course is insulated from ground. In the first illustration we can see that the difference in electric charge makes it attractive to matter. In the second illustration we see from the girl's hair which has become charged by her hand's contact with the charged surface, and here we must assume that she is ungrounded electrically (that would probably hurt about like a stun gun), that every strand of her hair is carrying a like charge.
The action at distance here is due to charge differential. The polarity in a small local area does not matter, only the differential. In the first image, the ball on the string is pulled to the positively charged dome. One could place the ball on the string in proximity to the screen of an energized CRT television or monitor and see a similar attractive pull. A CRT screen carries a high potential negative charge, so we can see it is not polarity, but charge differential. As I said earlier in this thread, the idea of 'positive' charge in all or our practical use of electricity would be accurately stated as "less negative," as this is the true difference of potential we work with and call, "volts."
One thing common to both the CRT's and the Van de Graff generator's attractive physical elements, both are hollow. The generator's dome contains air, and the picture tube, vacuum, yet both exhibit a very gravity-like attraction for any form of matter having a mass.
To the idea of a solid core Earth, where the attraction is a quality inherent in mass alone, as per Newton, if one were to do a mind experiment where one sees oneself at the very core of the Earth, four thousand miles down, and halfway through the planet, in which direction would all the Earth's attractive mass then be?
It would be omnidirectionally outward from our location, would it not? Would not this mass's attractive force be pulling on us from every direction? Would not this create a highly negative pressure at Earth ultimate core, with an average outward pull of one G of mass generated gravity?
You see, even the Newtonians must engage a double-think here, as they usually rely on the inward pressure of following the inverse square rule of gravity force far down into the Earth to mentally get the pressures they see as necessary to compress their imagined nickel/iron core into a crystalline solid to support their secondary assumption that the Earth's magnetic field comes from a solid nickel/iron core. Yet, as I said in the previous paragraph, mass generated gravity would call for a vacuum at the center point. And more than that, as one made their imaginary way into the Earth toward the center, with each unit of distance traveled, with every mile in, there would be another mile of mass generated force above to cancel the mass force still ahead. Even by the mass equals gravity theory, gravity should begin decreasing as soon as there is mass above you.
So, if gravity is electrostatic force, we see the thinest shell of aluminum of a Van de Graff dome, or the very thin conductive phosphor coat of the inside of a CRT screen, is enough mass to support an attractive force that for all we can see, is exactly like what we call gravity, by way of its observed actions at distance.
The patents of Thomas Townsend Brown have shown (and this has been repeated, and can be seen in many videos online) that a charged plate capacitor in parallel with Earth's surface, when weighed, weighs more when the (relatively) positive plate is down, and less when the negative plate is down, or toward the Earth, and can even produce levitating values of force. Brown showed, when told his discovered kinetic forces were only "ion wind" (a motive force attributed to ions being emitted and pushing off of air molecules), by taking his experiment to France where he could set it up in a room-sized high vacuum chamber, that in high vacuum, the efficiency of the kinetic power displayed was highly increased, proving it was NOT ion wind, and that this would have great potential for space travel.
Earth's surface is a conductive plate, so much of note, that it is the model for the electrical component term, "ground," or "earth." But, we can see by rubbing a balloon to a charged condition, or removing the plastic seal from a bottle or jar, that dielectric or non-conducting matter can also carry these electro-gravitational charges. I would expect that the relative motion between the molten magmas and the inner side of the crust to likely be the zone of maximum charge, with the whole crust becoming an element akin to the spheroidal dome of the Van de Graff machine. I highly doubt the magma would extend to the center of the Earth, or to be compressing itself into a solid at any point by downward pressure.
I would expect the other side of the flowing magma belt to be another, inner, crust. I would also expect an inner atmosphere and waters, and would not be surprised to find exposed rock or terra. In line with what has become mythical imagery of an inner Earth, and with what astronauts have observed, that the top of the atmosphere is mirror-like in its reflectivity, that the interior of the crusty bubble model Earth has illumination.
Any light occurring inside this hollow sphere would shine directly through a focal point at the center and on to the other side's mirror-like high atmosphere and reflect right back through that center, creating a standing light wave at that point. An inner Sun, if you will. So, yes, the inner Earth could easily be a place of life, including intelligent life. And, if it is there, it would not very like be prone to mess with this trailer trash crowd on the outer surface (unless we started popping off nukes in our exalted wisdom).
Okay, friends a neighbors, there's a bit more to chew on. When do I get my official Crackpot badge?
