A theory of a possible method of fusion

It may be difficult to separate "theory" from "application," but let''s see if this helps facilitate the discussion.

We humans are big bags of water.... we are water logged meat engines. The micro wave oven frequency was tuned for cooking wet meat and other water loaded food substances. Our bodies like to fully absorb 2.45 Ghz RF energy and fast neutrons. Your health, your choce!

Guess I’ll stick with the 2 copper wires
Thanks for advice

Just in case missed post in contsrructor thread

Ok my idea that I’ve worked with I’ve simplified a little
For proof of concept I’ll be using 2 rows of magnets
Roughly 10 each side with like poles facing centre so that there pushin away
From what I’ve seen in vids on YouTube is plasma spinning around magnets so idea is to give it a run up or hopefully sling shot around as it moves down row of magnets toward centre
Videos I looked at for magnets plasma that came up in YouTube search
https://youtu.be/2B-lKgcQJvg
And https://youtu.be/uPU9cEK5YsM

If magnets rows fixed down and are facing the like poles / repelling Poles
Plasma spinning from one row would be spinning opposite direction to other row and hopefully meet somewhere in middle

If plasma gets a speed boost from spinning around magents on lead up
Might lower power requirements for fusion


If all works as theorised when build proof will upgrade proof to a prototype with rows on all 6 sides of square

Well built my idea

Finished off today
Gona give it a test run with some argon cause have in hand at work

Today put the 4 copper grids 2 at base of each row to create plasma
Will try get a vid of it running later on

Don’t think power supply I got was not sufficient enough for creating plasma with method using

Any suggestions as to what I could get that would be sufficient
Or maybe an easier way to create the plasma

Open to suggestions

Rather difficult to make any suggestions what-so-ever when the only picture you show for the experiment is an open box held together with plastic straps.

Making a plasma is trivial if one uses a vacuum (say 50 milli-torr) and a few hundred volts even at a a few milli-amps.

If you are trying to create a plasma in air, you will need a very high voltage and the ability to 'strike' an arc. Look at the "Jacob's Ladder" demo's on youtube.

It’s an aluminium frame with bolts holding magnets
Ignore the zip ties they where prepairing to hold the copper wires

My
Older bro recommended usen one of the tig welders at work as a power supply
Got vacuum down to -25psi and added some argon gas
Tho only had some wires a few mm appart to test if could get an arch which it did.

Will be installing the copper grids hopefully tomorrow in hope to get some plasma flowing

OK; while the old negative pressure is still used on some ancient dial gauges or maybe AC units, might want to use positive readings; also, not inches. Maybe just convert to torr or pascal. That will mean more to others here.
