Donald Scott - A New Model of Magnetic Structure in Space - 2014

Hi and welcome. My Name is Don Wesley.
Magnetism has always "held" me fascinated.
Especially today December 6, 2014


Published on May 16, 2014
Dr. Donald Scott described his investigation of the inherent properties of Birkeland currents and subsequent discovery that they produce
unexpectedly far-reaching magnetic fields in cosmic space. These fields collect matter and compress it into concentric hollow cylinders. They also produce a long-range attractive force on other such currents. Without involving mathematics, Scott describes the results of his analysis of the magnetic structures that are produced by, and that surround, Birkeland Currents. This work and its results gives new insight into the understanding of the electrical properties of space.

Dr. Scott earned his Bachelors and Masters degrees in Electrical Engineering at the University of Connecticut. He earned a Doctorate in Electrical Engineering at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, Massachusetts, and was a member of the faculty of the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of Massachusetts/Amherst from 1959 until his retirement in 1998. During that time he was the recipient of several good-teaching awards and authored numerous scientific papers and chapters. In 1987, the McGraw-Hill Book Company published his 730-page textbook, An Introduction To Circuit Analysis -- A Systems Approach. In addition, Dr. Scott published the classic, Electric Sky (2006), 256 pages of compelling material on the Electric Universe and plasma cosmology.

The secret to creative education, I learned as a teen, My Secret way of getting educated.

 "This is the real secret of life --
to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now.
And instead of calling it work, realize it is play."
Alan Wilson Watts

"Much of my school time I disliked.
There was a time after 8th grade, when I preferred the science of billiards. I took the year off and learned Billiards at the local Pool Hall.

 I carried on 'learning' new disciplines... one at a time; until I knew many extremely well: many disciplines and all the levels of the English language needed for each discipline. My education was learning forever... many disciplines; social and natural sciences and the humanities also. 
Interdisciplinary or Multidisciplinary cooperation as it was first called. I made a very good living selling my Know-How. Much more money than just being an Electrical Engineer. They bought me... a Jack of all Trades, and I got the job done very quickly!"

I'll be 81, April 17, 2014 and still excited about learning.
It keeps me alive and feeling great-enough to create a little something new.
I learned something new last night!

Historically the first practical use of the multidisciplinary approach was during the Second World War by what became known as the military-industrial complex. Notably the Lockheed Aircraft Company set up its own special projects operation - nicknamed the skunk works - in 1943 to develop the XP-80 jet fighter aircraft in just 143 days.
In the 1960s and 1970s the multidisciplinary approach was successfully employed in the UK by architects, engineers and quantity surveyors working together on major public sector construction projects and, together with planners, sociologists, geographers and economists, on overseas regional and urban planning projects.
