Scientists are looking for hypothetical particles called magnetic monopoles

I wish I could wrap my head around Ed's little paper.
that is awesome..,.,.,., well what he makes me think of with that,,,,, is he is describing charged particles,,,, positive and negative,,, and perhaps they are the individual little "magnets",,,
So far they've found quasiparticles in condensed matter, but not the true magnetic monopoles they are seeking.
A magnetic monopole is a hypothetical particle in particle physics that is an isolated magnet with only one magnetic pole (a north pole without a south pole or vice-versa). In more technical terms, a magnetic monopole would have a net "magnetic charge". Modern interest in the concept stems from particle theories, notably the grand unified and superstring theories, which predict their existence.

If you can increase the rise time in the CEMF in a generator coil and the frequency is high enough
