A Common Language for Electrical Engineering – Lone Pine Writings
This collection of papers started appearing in discussion threads on Energetic Forum around 2011. At the time, Eric Dollard was living in his famous 1980 Toyota Corolla, in the harsh wastelands of Lone Pine, California.
Originally, Eric wrote the material out on paper and mailed it to a colleague who transcribed the material and posted it in the forums under the pseudonym “T-REX”.
Each paper or letter was called a “transmission” in honor of the language of a radio operator and contained information on specific electrical engineering terms and how they are to be used. The original format of the material is retained in this edition of the book. The phenomena we call “electricity” is a dynamic, but artificial presentation of the Natural World, and because of this, its behavior follows specific rules.
Understanding these specific behaviors is the key to engineering this phenomena, but developing a common language with which to describe these behaviors is the key to teaching others these engineering skills.
The purpose of this book is to provide clarity for the electrical engineering community regarding the use of common terms for electrical units. The last attempt to standardize this language was made by Oliver Heaviside over 100 years ago and his effort was met by censure from the Royal Society of London. It is hoped that the release of this book will be met with a more enlightened response.
A portion of the proceeds will go to EPD Laboratories, Inc., a 501(c)3 tax-deductible non-profit corporation that supports Eric Dollard in advancing the electrical sciences.
