11. Ball lightning:
rare form of lightning where an incandescent, slow-moving globe forms. The globe often moves erratically, explodes, and may set fire to objects it touches. While its exact causative mechanism still eludes researchers, ball lightning may be due to longitudinal EM wave interferometry (a derivative of superpotential theory founded by a paper by E.T. Whittaker in 1904) which can produce a controlled pattern of electromagnetic energy at a distance. AIAS has shown that such longitudinal EM wave interferometry is in fact viable and real. Phase conjugation is directly involved; note that the literature already explicitly demonstrates that phase conjugation can perform real-time holography, or produce forms of energy at a distance. Bearden has proposed a theoretical mechanism that generates the flow of time and its substructure, and shown some evidence of it. In principle the theory is engineerable, in which case a region of "reversed time" can be formed, and persist temporarily. Such a time-reversal zone may be involved in both cold fusion (where TRZs are theorized by Bearden to form temporarily under certain circumstances, thereby reversing the law of attraction and repulsion of charges. In such a TRZ -- assuming such forms -- like charges attract in even numbers, accounting for a variety of cluster formation (as in Shoulders' patents and experiments) and yielding formation of new nuclei in the cold fusion experiments. The phenomenon of TRZs may also occur at intervals in nature, and may therefore explain the temporary persistence of ball lighting where the moving charges of like sign are attracted to each other due to time reversal in zone. Such TRZs do decay fairly quickly, and as they decay the attracted like-sign charges become more and more repulsive and less attractive, resulting in sudden rupture of the boundary between decreasing attraction and increasing repulsion. The result would be a resounding explosion of the kind often seen with ball lightning.
