The Enigma Machine — Part 4
gests that living things can be directly affected by polar
conductivity. Admittedly, this is just speculation; however,
consider an electronic medical device that could be tuned to
prevent specific pathogens from replicating. Obviously, such
a product would have a tremendous impact at many levels.
This series started, "This is one of those things that
seems just a little interesting at the start; however, as you
look closer, it gets stranger and stranger." There does not
seem to be an end to the strangeness. Like the battery
bunny, it just keeps going and going and going.
This series was developed to illustrate a number of
aspects of science and learning. The first and most
obvious was the actual development of The Enigma
Machine from concept to product. Next was the scientific
approach to gathering information and learning from it.
Common sense and attention to detail are absolutely
necessary. There was also the convoluted path of discovery from the first odd observation of hearing a sound when
my ear brushed an electromagnet to the present.
Learning from mistakes is still learning. Hopefully, you
found this series interesting and fun. That's what science
and engineering is to me. NV
Enigma Machine Safety Notice!
Please use common sense ...
1. This article deals with high voltage and high voltage effects. When
built and used as described, The Enigma Machine is felt to be completely safe. Improper use and construction can cause electrical shock.
2. Several Enigma Machine experiments demonstrate effects that pass
through the body of the user. Therefore, it is not recommended that
anyone with a pacemaker or other embedded electrical device
participate in these experiments, nor should it be used in very close
proximity to any electrical equipment where electromagnetic
interference could cause safety concerns.
3. Several experiments have shown subtle biological effects on plants
with continuous exposure of days to weeks. (See last month’s article.)
4. The high power version of the Enigma Machine presented here
should not be built or operated by anyone who is not experienced
with high voltage circuits. Severe electrical shocks or burns are very
5. It seems reasonable to suggest that the high power version could
have significant biological effects, especially with long term exposure.
