Question re: Anomalous Geography: Tall Towers TPOD

Hundreds of TPODs have been published since the summer of 2004. In particular, we invite discussion of present and recent TPODs, perhaps with additional links to earlier TPOD pages. Suggestions for future pages will be welcome. Effective TPOD drafts will be MORE than welcome and could be your opportunity to become a more active part of the Thunderbolts team.

Question re: Anomalous Geography: Tall Towers TPOD

Unread postby JaredTheDragon » Mon Dec 18, 2017 6:45 pm

My question is for Stephen Smith, or anyone else who can answer of course.

In the recent TPOD about Great Tango Tower and other such anomalies, he states:

"Since electricity is a pulling force and does not “impact” the surface, anomalous formations like Great Trango Tower are the result of gigantic secondary discharges that rose up to meet oppositely charged leader strokes descending from above."
(emphasis mine)

I find this very curious, as I've never considered electricity a pulling force. Nor a force at all, but rather an E/M transmission, which would be a "push", not a pull. One could say using Einstein's Equivalence Principle that it all depends on the point of view, but regarding lightning blasts striking the Earth, we would have to look at it from the lightning's point of view. Is the lightning pulling? And how? What mechanism creates a pull with an up-vector?

I'm also aware that if we track lightning at a slow enough frame of reference, we often see it rising up from the ground to meet the incoming lightning. But again, wouldn't that be a push and not a pull? Electricity in our devices pushes electrons, it doesn't pull them. That's what current is, I believe.
