George Noory did an interview with a young man--Michael Markham--who wound a 3-4 KV secondary and connected it to a jacob's ladder high voltage discharge apparatus of the kind you see in Frankenstein movies. The discharge starts at the bottom of what looks like a pair of rabbit ears and works its way to the top as the air above the discharge becomes ionized. In order to get the discharge started (the terminals were a little to far apart), Markham used a laser he had salvaged from a CD player. What he produced (he said) was a barely visible, but very odd spherical effect. In playing around with it, he chucked a small screw at it and the screw disappeared (he said). He concluded that he had invented a time machine! Rather than spending a lot of time experimenting with something he already had, like all those boring scientists, Mad Man decided to build a super version with enough power to send himself somewhere in time.To do this ( and here is where he earned his moniker 'Mad Man')he and several pals stole a transformer from the local power company, and while they were at it they thought they would fill up the back of the pickup with transformers (which were just lying around not being used). Mad man had to run his own line from the powerlines to run the transformer which was set up in the enclosed porch of his house. Somehow (?) the police got wind of this, and showed up before Mad Man could electrocute himself. But somehow I get the feeling that maybe Mad Man did create an unusual effect. First of all, although there may have been no visible discharge there might have been some electrical flow between terminals. Secondly, I have the suspicion that the little laser was oriented at right angles to the discharge. So one might have two intersecting electromagnetic flows. Maybe the effect was phase-shifting. Wasn't the 'Philadelphia Experiment' supposedly based fluctuating magnetic fields?
