Experiment B - subjecting sunflower seeds to the action of a moving magnet.

After finding that the cumulative-dissipative seed cycle depends on a force due to movement, I conceived an experiment - called in this site "experiment B" - in order to see whether the magnetic field has any relation to it.

In this experiment, sunflower seeds, once reduced to fine particles, are placed in a thin layer on a stainless steel plate. At that point, they are subjected to the action of a moving magnet, so as to give the seeds a magnetic field that changes direction in very short sequences.

This in order to see at which points of the plate the dissipation occur, revealed where the fatty acids of the seeds are fluidized, the same seen with experiment A. It would be at the points where the magnet was moved at a critical speed. A meeting between “force d” and magnetic field. So I thought.

Immediately after subjecting the seeds to the action of the moving magnet, a slight pressure is applied to them, very slowly.

Experiment B: procedure.

Results from the experiment ‘B’.

In subsequent sessions, where the same procedure is performed - carried out in the following hours of the day, as well as in the following days - I see that the point of the edge, where the first drops of oil come out, changes position.

By analogy to what I saw carrying out experiment A, I expected that the position of the greatest effect of dissipation would be random, as random were the critical angular velocities impressed on the magnet, set in motion on the plate.

Instead, the points of the plate, where the most important dissipation took place, followed a kind of cycle, in accordance with the times of a tide in a basin having diurnal cadence.

I consider this to be strange, since I started from the assumption that the movement of the Moon exerts a too weak force, in relation for example to the effect of a moving magnet. I also saw that the results had a seasonal drift.

I considered the results obtained too complicated, and mostly artifacts, so not reliable. Situation to be solved by re-setting the experiment on more precise bases, for example by applying movements to the magnet that are no longer random but precise.

Not having the means, nor the time, to do this, I gave up.

Two questions.

Of the experiment, only two questions remain, to which one may perhaps answer one day.

First question to be applied to both seeds and tides: a stronger local magnetic field level than normal, transforms a bi-diurnal cadence cycle into a diurnal cadence? (to explain the tide cadence in China sea, and Mexico gulf).

Second question: is a suitable magnetic field a condition for the “force d” to work?

If this last question is answered positively, one could perhaps explain the reason why Mars has no life, because it lacks an adequate magnetic field, and no plant cannot perform the necessary cumulative-dissipative processes.
