Earth as a whole is electrically positively charged compared to space. Earth's surface is negatively charged due to electrons repelling each other while still mostly attracted to proton-rich Earth. Proposing: charging any tower insulated at base with even more negative electric charge so to repel itself and hold erect under temporary over-reach strain, like when shooting a train passengers up. Proposing: this train can be aided traveling up by the gradient of electron distribution as an alternative to rockets. The train needs to neutralize its initial electric charge when the drag from emergent local electric fields becomes more than the gain from electron repulsion, and flip to be attracted to space when reaching that altitude. Proposing: stratosphere-space station traveling to receive such train. The station should be charged positively to be attracted to negatively charged space, in fast orbit with minimal atmosphere resistance, and extend down a long hook ready to cling a negatively charged attractive tip to the incoming train. Once hooked, the train can be pulled and accelerated forth in the thinner atmosphere. Proposing: instead of a geostationary and straight down space elevator, any orbital stable station can receive space passengers via a space hook. Many such stations should be more feasible and safer than one huge space elevator. Places to rest waiting the next train in and out of the planet, at different orbits and harmonics between them, with rush hours and leisure travel through times. Rem/Lik/Sub/Chat/Wire for more.

Tower of Carpets and Ropes

Current age towers are made of solid material that pushes its way up as positioned. This limits their size per weight, because it is like building upwards with ice. Water, instead, as long as it is held in place sideways, pushes its own weight much better. Proposing: tower of rope and carpet. Carpets would be the water equivalent, that, in its fluid state - the internal core of the tower, layers upon layers of meshes of fibers - can hold its own weight. But, being carpets - fibers with internal energy of their own that holds them - they don't spill sideways as real fluids, while still having their pressed 'fluidity'. And ropes, to keep the carpets together, and ropes that hold the tower vertically by pulling it down in equilibrium from many sides. The ropes that keep the carpets together cannot hold their own weight all the way up, and would rely on being held up by the carpets which in turn are held by the ropes. Continuous pressure on the carpets and tug on container ropes will break their molecular bonds in time (carpets will become truly like water, redirecting pressure immediately rather than holding most of the weight), but, things break and need replacement always, the classic fully hanging space elevator also, even pyramids and mountains. Space tourism could justify continuous maintenance of rope towers, but the #FractalUniverseRevolution is much more awesome! Rem/Lik/Sub/Çat/Wir#FUR/Mor

Hi Last week the formula of the universe was found (well, published), hyperstructures of Wolfram language, and the open source software for it. It is an event more important than Corona and USA elections combined. And I posted this: https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1099278458978168832 , which was well received also. But the #FractalUniverseRevolution is not happening... is there a problem? So quiet about something that can render all universes (and also associated with a cryptocurrency, eg. mine your own Wolfram Universe, and earn #Minds tokens, or ETH, or the Wolfram coin itself). Cheers!

A change in the electric field induces electricity that opposes this change in any object within range. The induced electricity and emergent electrical field from it result in a force operating on the object and a movement in relation to the electrical poles that induced the changes in the object. Proposing: using a rotating electrical dipole traveling in a sweeping pattern to induce such movements to space debris, altering their orbits until they drop from the sky. An electrical pole reorients electrical fields surrounding it. These altered fields reorient electrical charges within any object nearby. While this applies to both electrically neutral and electrically charged objects, charged objects create their own impeding fields while moving therefore are already dragging and falling if still up there. Emergent electrostatic attraction (remember foam sticking to a cat's fur) has a small effect on electrically balanced objects. I guess that a strong enough electrical pole traveling in orbit would be enough to nudge space junk out of their stable circular orbits and into elliptical orbits. But, the stronger the pole, the stronger the fields that resist its travel, and the bigger the rockets needed to compensate for its own emergent impedance. This is why I am suggesting rotating poles, which would be inducing changes and movement more in to the smaller space debris by altering the electric fields, amplifying the disturbing effect with less drag on the disturber itself. The proposed method does not collect space junk, it merely unsettles their orbit so they may fall on to Earth or sling away. I am seeking collaboration to include in the presentation graphics and calculations, as the next step to turn this from idea to application. Stopping space junk is possible, stopping the #FractalUniverseRevolution in not possible! Rem/Lik/Sub/Çat/Wir#FUR/Mor
