A while back Radsafe was discussing lifting heavy equipment,
Places like Brookhaven Lab have heavy cranes to do such lifting.
There's another way to lift heavy equipment, and I should give credit
to Ed Liedskalnin who wrote a book on magnetic induction and
single-handedly built coral castle, a garden of heavy stones (google it). His method is
largely unknown to the public, I think, so I will explain how I think he
did it. He would not do his castle construction work while people were
watching. An episode of In Search Of describes coral castle. Coral Castle is
in Florida. Visit It???
Ed used a block and tackle and a tripod to lift the heavy stones. The
tripod had a mysterious metal box at the top of it. I suspect inside of
the box was a permanent magnet connected to lifting metal or ropes that could
be attached to the stones to be lifted. Under the permanent magnet is a
wire coil which is probably wrapped around a metal or whatever spool. The
electric wire is connected to a power source and when the power is turned
on, the wire coil produces a magnetic (induction) field. If properly
designed, the induction field will repel the permanent magnet field and
significant lifting will be achieved. Once lifting occurs, the stone to be moved can
be pushed sideways to move it a few feet or so. Then the process can be
Such stones can also be moved on wood logs or stone cylinders.
Ed claimed he knew how the Egyptians moved the stones used in the
pyramids. Was this his method??? Did the Egyptians make electricity using
stationary bicycles with electric motor generators attached or by some other
means??? Have the bicycles and electronics all rusted away in time???
Apparently electric batteries (rudimentary) have been discovered in old
Egyptian archeological digs.
For 10 points, as Bernie Cohen might offer, build Liedskalnin's tripod
and make it work????
Thanks to Tesla for making any of this possible.
