Static Electricity Defies Simple Explanation

Beyond the boundaries of established science an avalanche of exotic ideas compete for our attention. Experts tell us that these ideas should not be permitted to take up the time of working scientists, and for the most part they are surely correct. But what about the gems in the rubble pile? By what ground-rules might we bring extraordinary new possibilities to light?

Maybe the triboelectric charging is responsible for laminated flow, seen for example at the Mt St Helens eruption.
A laminated flow in space could produce the stratified comets and asteroids. Or the laminated flow produced the rocks on Earth and they got blasted intact into space.

If a laminated flow is produced by triboelectric charging instead of gravity sorting, then the number of layers in such a flow could be huge. Thus the geological column could more easily be produced by just a few events.
