Crossing the wire essay

Twist the scraped end of each generator wi re securely around the silver tip of each wi re from the small light bulb. (If necessary, use a knife to strip more plastic from the ends of the light bulb wi res.) One generator wi re goes to one light bulb wi re, the other generator wi re goes to the other light bulb wi re, and the two twisted wi re connections should not touch together. In the twisted wi res, metal must touch metal with no plastic in between.   _______________ _|______________ \ |\ | \ | \ | \ | \_____________|___\ | | | \ | | \\ | | \\\====================| \\\========---=========/___ |\\========(\\)========/ \ -----+-\==========(_)=======/ \ / | ==================== | | | | | | | \ | | | | \|__________________| | | | \ / \ twist / \ {} twist {} / \ {} {} / \____/\______ _______/\__/ \_/ ( ) ( ) tiny (_) light bulb TEST IT Spin the magnet REALLY fast and the bulb will light dimly. If it doesn't work, try spinning it in a dark room so you don't miss the dim glow. If needed, adjust the position of the magnets so they don't hit or scrape the cardboard. This thing has to spin *fast*, and if the magnets whack the cardboard and slow down, you won't see any light. (IF IT DOESN'T WORK, SEE " DEBUGGING ")
Once you get it to work, try clamping the point of the nail into the chuck of a hand-crank drill. Spin the magnets fast with the drill and the bulb will light brightly. Don't go too fast or you'll burn out the bulb, or maybe fling magnets all over the room. You can try this with an electric drill as well, although electric drills don't spin as fast.
Note: your generator produces Alternating Current, not Direct Current. The output voltage is about 2 volts max, so there is no electric shock hazard at all.

DRAW A HOLO GRAM

You have seen photographs of the sun taken during a total eclipse. The corona fills the print. All of those photographs were taken through telescopes. The lenses of telescopes and cameras can no more cover the breadth and scale of the visual array than language can cover the breadth and simultaneity of internal experience. Lenses enlarge the sight, omit its context, and make of it a pretty and sensible picture, like something on a Christmas card. I assure you, if you send any shepherds a Christmas card on which is printed a three-by-three photograph of the angel of the Lord, the glory of the Lord, and a multitude of the heavenly host, they will not be sore afraid. More fearsome things can come in envelopes. More moving photographs than those of the sun’s corona can appear in magazines. But I pray you will never see anything more awful in the sky.
