Made a new two-sided JFET electrometer. So far I haven't been able to catch a bee working a flower, but I've been trying the meter on 'unworked' flowers and other things. Interesting response with flowers and stems. Pulling away from a flower gives a response which fades slowly. Touching the flower with antenna zeroes the meter immediately.
The picture is just to show the meter itself. I couldn't catch the brief responses on camera. I'm not satisfied with the way this meter works; it's not as sensitive as the earlier crude modified-VOM instrument.
I suspect the 9V source is putting the JFETs too far into 'pinch-off' mode compared with the 1.5V batt in the VOM.
Thinking about the pull-away response: Simple electrons are behaving just like a more complicated social response!
Like coziness, like companionship, like possession of a wife or husband, like possession of an important object.
A dog makes it instantly obvious. When you leave the dog cries. As long as the dog is touching a nestmate, all is OK and calm.
It's always the deltas. All deltas get a response, but negative deltas get a more important response.
Natural law works with
this natural tendency, shaping gradients to avoid pain and crime as much as possible.
Sharia law carefully balances and controls these gradients to keep society running smoothly. Like the dissimilar metals of a battery, male and female, rich and poor, are understood to be innately distinct
. They are electrets.
Sharia law forms a circuit and controls the distance and strength of these opposing charges to do useful work without overloading or fading.
On marriage: As long as the charge is present, neither side is allowed to pull away, and both sides are required to maintain their charge in order to do the useful work of raising kids. Man must be productive and protective, woman must be attractive and must take care of home and kids. But when the charge has unquestionably leaked away, divorce is made easy.
On physical possessions: You shouldn't hoard possessions. If you have a big pile, you're obliged to employ the poor man and treat him decently. Dipole-ly, the poor man is obliged to work for his keep. This pattern of flow and feedback lowers the rich man's side of the temptation gradient. If thieves steal, they lose a hand. This knowledge lowers the thief's side of the temptation gradient.
Modern western dysculture runs backwards in every possible way. Modern economy exponentializes all sorts of things that should be log or lin. Polistra has discussed
At the same time, modern dysculture linearizes and flattens
the exponential gradient of these proper batteries. Everyone is identical, dead and passive. Innate charge differences do not exist, so gradients do not exist. Therefore no useful work occurs. You do not own your wife and kids. They are just other dead grains of sand that happen to be in the same area temporarily. You're not allowed to get angry when your wife cheats or your kids disobey. The latest move toward wacked-out "transgender" delusions
violently smashes the already-dying concept of natural electrets. You're not allowed to calibrate the system.
UK law also linearizes physical property. You're not allowed to defend your house against squatters and thieves. If you do, you're the criminal. US law has somehow avoided this part of the trend.
