Nor could these effects be produced by a third magnetic coil placed directly above the head of the test subject and connected to a second magnetic coil through an amplifier with the second magnetic coil receiving magnetic pulses from a first magnetic coil after the said magnetic pulses first passed through the anaesthetic sample.
Liquid helium is the only cooling media that can cool the magnetic coil to an ultra-low temperature to achieve superconductivity (zero resistance).
and works on a well-proven scientific principle: "Basically, what happens in the E-Lamp," Villere explained, "is that a magnetic coil generates a high-frequency radio signal.
