Validating Parallel Path

I derived this apparatus, because people who called themselves "skeptics", would enlessly challenge the reality of something that can be demonstrated with $10 of parts from the local hardware store, in about 5 minutes worth of work. That is to say, the Parallel Path concept that in a core containing 3 flux fields, the central field can have a disproportionate effect upon the magnetic force manifested in the arms of the core.

Having derived this apparatus, it then became possible to state that "skeptics"seemed to be below the intellectual level of an intelligent 10 year old child, since they can indeed perform the following experiment in many instances without problem. It is notable that the number of "skeptics" of Parallel Path, seems to have reduced since this page was uploaded to the web, apparently embarrassed by their own utter inability to perform even the simplest of scientific experiments.

Non electrical flux experiment

In the original Parallel Path egroup run from 2002-2004, "GM" proposed an all magnet flux core experiment. I adapted this proposal, to include the concept of flux saturation - essential to properly manifest the Parallel Path effect.

The numbers imposed on the image represent the number of steel stable strips the magnetic fields are capable of holding in place, and thus give you a good rough idea of the amount of comparative magnetic force manifested.

This simple tactile approach will help you to understand the concept of flux saturation in way you can feel and touch. Simply add extra layers of steel staple strips, until there is insufficient force to hold another in place.

An inability to grasp flux saturation as a concept, has greatly hindered most home attempts at replication of Parallel Path effect, which occurs within in a relatively narrow flux/current/voltage window, that must be tuned in for specific apparatus.

It is unproductive to try and build complex motors and generators, before one has mastered a simple physical understanding of flux transfer, and saturation limits, within cores.

Parallel Path modification

The Parallel Path effect can be replicated with identical apparatus, at only a slight increase in cost and complexity, with the addition of a 3V DC variable power supply and enamelled copper wire. Once you have a feel for the magnetic force in the core, and an appropriate core depth, you may also wish to glue the staple strips together.

The end legs should be left loose unattached, at least initially, so you can tell exactly when one side of the core looses all flux density, and the PP effect has occurred. Note the precise input required to do that for the specific apparatus employed.

So simple

The inability of otherwise educated and rational people to go to the local hardware store, sit down, and perform a 5 minute $10 experiment, with no moving parts, or electrical input required, was/is consistently surprising. THE SIMPLEST WAY TO VALIDATE PP IS TO BUILD IT! Conducting a real experiment, will always achieve far more than endless ranting / rambling posts on internet forums.

Parts list - maybe $10

Steel staple strips from local hardware store (about $3)


Half a brain (can be done with less)

Parallel Path parts

Glue to hold staple strips together

Enamelled wire

Variable 3v DC PSU

Half a brain (so as voltage input rises you can see the moment when one end of the flux path drops off the main core)
