They worked around high voltage projects.
By the same logic, smoking a pipe makes you more intelligent, since lots of physicists seem to do that.
Tesla worked with Super high voltage running through his body, even though his hair was not puffy, the voltages were higher. Look at Einsteins hair.
Long hair was needed to be a wiseman in the past, why?
Puffy hair? What are you on about here - static charges on hair? It's sort of hard to tell. And I'm not sure that "long hair was needed to be a
wise man", please for the love of FSM do not post that spew about indian trackers in response.
To become a Shaman you should be struck by lightning? The pyramids were built over underground water that emitted Ions. The holy sites were either
over underground water or near lakes or rivers. On a lake there is a charge built up on the surface that glows to the highest spot.
Water doesn't normally emit ions, afaik. Conductors that are grounded (water in a lake, for instance) generally do not have static charges. Not sure
how this relates to your high voltage speculation, though.
Could high voltage/low amps help our thinking and stimulate the mind? I'm not saying that anyone should electrocute themselves but it is something
You are aware that you cannot set all three variables in Ohm's law? You get two, the third happens as a dependent variable. For instance, if I have a
pretty much fixed resistance, in this case your body, I cannot specify both the voltage and the current too. I get to pick one, the other happens. So,
if you have an impedance head to foot of, say 10K, I can choose a voltage and a current will occur, but I can't specify the voltage and current both.
Most people don't get that, unless they're in the biz. So, what really happens in these cases where you think you're getting high voltage and low
amps is, you're getting low voltage and low amps. The instant the arc forms, the voltage drops.
tDCS, for instance, generally puts way less than 48V across your head. It depends on the connection you make and your particular impedance, it could
be as low as 10V or so.
Would the Physicists tell us if they knew? Would they want to lose their advantages over us and risk loosing their high salaries if everyone was
super intelligent? Would our government want to lose control of us because we could see through TPTB's controls? Would it be good for the Economy
if everyone could see what is truly important? Could this be a conspiracy to control us?
No. Plutonium shots are where it's at, the military gets them but not you.
I am not talking about electrocuting yourself, I am talking about standing barefoot by a lake.
This is pleasant, but not a situation in which any current is going to be running through you.
I am saying maybe we should let the energy of the earth flow through us by taking off our shoes and walking in the grass.
Another pleasant thing to do, but in this case, the only "energy of the earth" that will flow through you is some thermal energy from you to the
grass, or vice versa.
Foods that stimulate energy help you think, why not the very high voltage with low amps that flow through a tree. Why do you feel better when you
prune your trees. When we get older we fear walking bare foot in the grass, maybe this is why we feel old.
Trees do not have very high voltage with low amps. Again, the tree has a non-trivially low impedance in the 10s of KOhms. You cannot have a high
voltage and low amperage simultaneously. But at any rate, trees do not have high voltage on them. You can, however, use a tree for an antenna - I've
got a really nice FM section showing how to tap trees by type and season to get a decent match for a HF transmitter. It works, too, I've used a tree
to get a signal out more than once.
Oh, by the way, you can metabolize food for energy - turning it into glucose or fatty acids and then to ATP. You can't metabolize electricity.
