Over the year's,it seems to me that we have only figured out how to produce !half! of the electrical power we should be able to produce for a given amount of work done.
What i mean to say iswe know how to get electrons moving through a circuit/conductor,and create the flow of a given value of current for a given amount of work. We know how to induce a voltage of a given magnitude. But, i think we are missing the !other! half of this energy we should have.
The electron travel's through a circuit and enter's the load,where it go's to work,and dose work on that load ,so as the load can perform work. But what dose the electron meet in that load?. As the load is a resistance to the flow of electron's,it means that the electrons are simply hitting slower electrons.
So now let's talk about the positron. The positron is of course the same as the electron,but with a positive charge,where as the electron has a negative charge.So let's talk about DC here for a momentlet's say a 12 volt battery is our source. The electron flow is from the negative to the positive of the battery,where as(if we can find a way to generate them)the positron would flow from the positive to the negative.
Now lets think about this. What would be the outcome of positrons flowing from the positive of our battery,and electrons flowing from the negative of our battery,and both meet at the load ?.
The way i see it ATM,we have 1 car going slow in one direction,and another car going faster traveling in the same direction,and just hitting the slower car up the rear end. What we need is two car's going the same speed,but in opposite direction's,and then colliding,where the collision takes place within the load.
Sorry for my rambling's,but i had to get it off my chest. It just seems to me that we are so stuck with the electron,for no other reason other than !it came along first!,that we are totally missing or ignoring the equal and opposite to that electron that should also exist,and be able to be generatedjust like the electron flow.
So how do we make a positive version of the electron ?.
