A couple of people have questioned my motives in this forum. One was kind enough to point out how I might be being perceived, in the context of some other bad experiences. The never occurred to me, so here goes.
A friend of mine has a rare form of leukemia, and asked me to look into the Zapper.
I am an Electrical Engineer, not a doctor, not big pharma, no ties to "traditional" medicine. I'm a straight up hardware jockey, and have been designing and building analog and digital electronic circuits for 35 years. I've worked for companies large and small, and was a self-employed circuit design consultant for 6 years. Both on salary and as a consultant, I have designed and built electronic equipment for several research departments at a large university. I was a sub-sub-contractor on one project for a medical department, but that was over 30 years ago. The device measured how many litres of air a person exhales during exercise. Come to think of it, that might have been for sports physiology, not medicine.
So there it is. I "know about science". I know how research is "done" in this country. I've dealt with very good and very bad programs. I know how to design a product and bring it to market. I also know a fair amount about how "electricity" works, and I'm trying to get a handle on the Zapper in a way that doesn't violate a dozen laws of physics.
I see that there is a Science
and technology debate forum on CZ, and I've posted there. But there is so little activity that I'm still searching for the right venue. Maybe it is a forum on another site. If anyone has suggestions, I'm wide open. I'm also open to any questions about Zapper design, as I have built a few and have some thoughts.
Warning: I've developed an interest in the history of technology, particularly the history of electronics. Most answers will come with a free mini-lecture.
Thanks for your time.
