Wow - quantum tunneling! Just one tiny detail confuses me: when I learnt about QT about 40 years ago it didn't have anything to do with zapping cables with high voltage. Has the theory changed since then, so Schrodinger's equation has new solutions, or could it be that the cable has nothing whatsoever to do with QT? And what exactly does a self-confessed 'arts graduate' add to a discussion on QT and interconnect cables, apart perhaps from being able to rewrite a press release in his own words without inserting spelling errors?

Just wait till we see cables utilizing dark matter...it's there, you just can't really see it! But listen to those realistic highs when cymbals are brushed!

Starting at $2000/meter pair, of course.

I'll take it up a notch...


When the sound really matters... Anti-Matter! New Anti-Matter conductors fight positive entropy, creating a balanced force of nature in your system. (magnetic bottle not included, beware of reactions with the matter in your universe, not responsible for the annihilation of the world as we know it! )

I can share one thing with you, but only this. I have a trusted friend..still working on military projects..you know..hush hush stuff. Their lab (one of a kind place) can verify I've used dark matter. No worries, he's a trusted friend of mine and once he confirms it, I will pass that to all here on the forum..but only here. Again, who else has dark matter in their cables (at least on purpose!)? Be the first on your block to show your friends. $2k a meter is not a bad price when you think about it.

ok, so this thread is currently discussing an unknown invention functioning in an unknown way.
LOL
and, as expected, the only person responding positively is John Curl (although, just like everyone else, he has no idea what it's about) who made a modus operandi of posting vague claims that can mean anything or nothing at all.
double LOL

Indeed! Quite in awe of what we find out in this great universe and the thousands of new questions it generates.

Just not in awe with what some folks do to make a buck off of it and how some have made a buck off of me based on the marketing I read at the time with ambiguous improvement to my life.
