Parts for the required for simple experiment.

1) Pollenex 1701 Home Ionizer with a 555 Timing Circuit. 2) 10,000 Ohm or greater earphone disc (See NOTES) 3) Connect center electrode wire from the disc to an ionizer pin. 4) Connect the outer ring of the disc to a furnace ground or other good ground. 5) Suspend disc (pendulum) for observation. No two earphones work the same. Find the one that works best before testing. 6) Both wires should be loose to enable free movement. 7) Some tests may be conducted with wires next to each other if an air gap discharge point is used such as ground or ion emitter, separation is preferred for pulse propulsion tests.

Fig. 1 & Fig. 2 are a general set-up schematics.

In Fig. 3: The disc in discharge shows propulsive motion. Please note that the erie flashing/arcing. This occurs about once or twice per second. (Higher voltage arcing occurs at timed intervals.) Its color is ultraviolet. Lighting-like spiking does occasionally occur.

NOTES:

I have noticed the earphone gains weight with the earphone cover remaining around the disc. Do to the risk imparted to a digital weight scale. I recommend a non-electric scale be used to confirm my discovery.

This weight remains even without a discharge point. Every object I tested, be it Human or a simple non-conductive wooden rod, did attract to the ionized ear phone disc regardless of it being grounded or not at ranges not exceeding 4 cm it will move. At 2 cm the earphone flies into the test object and sticks until the ion supply is turned-off or is batted off by another external force.

The earphone will stick to a cement floor like glue, this may be an attractive and elastic effect.

I have pulled wires off trying to remove it do to the great force. I conducted drop tests and confirmed accelerated falls under charge as the earphone gets closer to the cement floor, definite acceleration!

The human part, I discovered, is not very pleasant, attractive or force/acceleration test.

I suspect the spiking discharges may be giving off x-ray and ultraviolet light, these may do great damage to your eyes over time. Protective glasses and shielding in bigger ion units are recommended.

The Pollenex 1701 Home ionizer gives off 800,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter under normal usage. These tests may build that number accumulatively over time, depending on wire thickness, or type and wire length.

Also plate size i.e. the earphone diameter should make a noticeable difference.

Any home ionizer has the potential to produce RF burns even through protective gloves. Electrical Gloves are recommended but not totally full proof over longer periods. The ions tend to ride a few centimeters above (traveling along) the wires and then spread outwards. Over time saturation of the negative ions will build-up slowing or stopping the pulse propulsion i.e. electron flow. Too few holes on the positive ground side of the plate i.e. too few positive ions results in no working propulsion system.

If you introduce a 1 cm air (arc) gap between ground after a minute of charging the earphone. It will rotate slightly and swing a short distance like a pendulum. I have seen swings up to 2 inches at times with slight twists.

A Unique Experiment

If you place a pop can 3 inches away from the ear phone after about 20 seconds the pop can and pendulum like earphone will come together and push apart sometimes up to 5 inches the first time and come together again a second time with only a 2-or-3 inch push.

In this test the earphone must not have a direct positive ground. The pop can will be the ground tied to the furnace vent.

The test using the pop can and earphone seem to work only once.

However, with a 1 cm air (arc) gap this reaction will happen over and over again in over longer periods at sporadic frequency, weaker push pull strengths.

Steel Houses

Another test can be conducted if you have steel siding on your house, the ear phone will push and pull over and over again up to 2 inches of swing i.e. attract and repel over and over again. In this case the push is greater then the pull. Plus, you can hear occasional hissing ions and the snap of the discharge electrons when house meets earphone in the inward phase or attractive phase of the swing.

Another Discovery

Another neat discovery I made was with heart monitor pads, they act as a natural speaker. They allow a person to hear the dynamic hissing as with the build-up of negative ions and snapping of the electrons flowing between or breaking away from them. I discovered heart monitor pads have attractive properties. I plan to buy some for testing, in the future. The total use time of an HMP is under 1 minute. They heat-up, and burn out.

[Unless I'm mistaken, these experiments are a sophisticated form of the old pith ball, glass rod, cat's fur or sealing wax and silk (or wool?) that was the typical high school demonstrations of the electrostatic forces of 50 years ago.

5) Suspend disc (pendulum) for observation. No two earphones

should be loose to enable free movement. 7) Some tests may be conducted with

It maybe a world exclusive this discovery to hear charges in there natural 
state without using an amplifier, just pure natural ion and electron sounds in 
there natural condition. Believe me they sound surreal.
