Question about lightning?

Postby ThunderFog » Sun Nov 24, 2019 6:13 pm

Which element is lightning closer to fire or water? I wonder because lightning is caused by clouds which are water but lightning itself creates heat.
The ability to question our way of thinking is what shows our intelligence.

I think most people associate it with fire yet it is a spontaneous type action which makes me think it may belong to the realm of ether and spirit.

I have a different perspective.

Fire is actually not an element and "spark" is the element that fire gets credit for.

Lightning is 'plasma' which is an electron fire.

Literally no one else shares in this theory with me. :-)

No, I remember you talking about this before Hopeful, and I was thinking about the plasma and our life blood what did we decide on that? I forgot.

It's still open for interpretation.
It has been one of my favorite discussions though.

I see this one in my lighter. Fire as an element is already home, perfecto, destroyed everything that ever could be against it.

Lightning is 'plasma' which is an electron fire.

Moreover it is blue, so it tests (for) ego.

Well we've got the da Vinci's Vitruvian Man or pentagram which stands for
Head Aether
Right Hand Fire
Right Foot Air
Left Foot Earth
Left Hand Water

Clouds contain water and air but the electron tension would make less concern with water perhaps.
I'd say lightning is Aether + Fire
Air + Fire would be nice too but Aether sounds more like "from sky" just as electricity inventions are governed by Uranus.

Your spark theory is worthy, I too have been thinking a lot about creatures of fire and how they come to possess those ultra hot combustable things. To me it looks like an example of a spiritual possession visible by naked eye.

Nicola Tesla claimed the presence of electricity gave him a lot of energy but his body was perhaps way too differently tuned than mine. I think his experiment in Colorado caused health problems to many?
