Ok, this is may seem wacky but it comes back to the point:Old Ben Franklin flying a kite that has a key that is illuminated by the electrical charge. The key to extract atmospheric electricity is height from the ground symbolized by a kite. I wonder how many fools actually tried to attract lightning and perished.
Dreamtime posted a video in this thread about the apparent lack of even a need for sewer systems wayy back then.
In the video, there are a few still images of paintings of the Palace of Versailles and its fountains. These paintings depict gods in the clouds- as many back then do. That, paired with the crazy shit they had to do with water to accomplish the feats with their seemingly useless fountains, and not need toilets led me to wonder if the people (or gods) back then used the water/moisture in the air in ways we can't today.
Could the gods (who maybe built these buildings for themselves) use a power over water to fly through the air on clouds? Other flying people have to use wings. Was the moisture content of the air vastly different?
(Maybe you could poop in a cloud, I don't know)
But more starts to make sense to me if these gods are semi-aquatic beings from the heavens above the firmament
Couldn't Zeus throw lightning?
And if we came from these water gods, a few other things fall into place as well
so they might have known a thing or two about the magic of water.
Then to bring it back:
Apparently it had to be storming, not just nighttime for the right conditions of this experiment. So if Ben Franklin made a key glow, did he need it to be storming for the humidity as well as the altitude and static electricity?
Or maybe the salinity of the air? I believe he was near a coast.
I don't know what other forces effect salt levels in the air. Or what could have been affecting it since then
But I do know that our own brains can't even fire without water and salts. Maybe the glow effect has some similar requirements we're overlooking
