# You current!

What actually are Alternating Currents or Direct Currents in an Electric Universe? Is it just current?

What different variations of the classically electron electricity are there?

### Is AC 'instantaneous direct current'?

Can what we call alternating electrical current be interpreted or defined as something else?

Current or anything else energy-carrying doesn't need to "get anywhere" long term to deliver energy. Think of how pistons work in a gasoline engine. They only go back and forth and don't "go anywhere" yet still deliver power to elsewhere (the crank shaft). Alternating current is a bit like the pistons. You can still extract useful work from it.

Another way to look at alternating current is instantaneous direct current that happens to change over time.

### Some ideas about EU currents

The discussion on the Thunderbolts Project Facebook page about the previous article AC/DC Electric Universe includes some ideas or thoughts on what electrical current could also be.

Zach Petty: With this understanding one could say that DC is static AC. Through the experimentation of bose-einstein condensate in the two chamber vacuum system ... Even in their most controlled evironment their results remained that the atoms NEVER STOP VIBRATING! meaning the fundamental idea behind a flat line DC will never be truly accurate from it's original inception.

Steve Nunua: I think there are thousands of different kinds of electricity...just like light. Why does science always try to stuff everything into one box.

Johnny Sigurd: Electricity can be the movement of protons or positive ions too.

### Alternating Current definition

The outlets in our homes provide alternating current (AC). 60 times every second the electrons in the wire change direction. The electrical devices we use don't care which direction the electrons are moving, the same amount of current flows through a circuit regardless of the direction of the current.

Electric power distribution networks are set up to handle the AC voltages that we use in our homes. Magnetic storms induce DC currents in these networks.

Alternating current describes the flow of charge that changes direction periodically. As a result, the voltage level also reverses along with the current.

### Electrons keep flowing

Direct Current (DC) flows in the same direction all the time through an electric circuit. Electrons flow continuously through the circuit from the negative terminal of the battery to the positive terminal. Even when no current is flowing through the wire, the electrons in the wire are moving at speeds up to 600 miles (1000 kilometers) per second but in random directions because the wire has a finite temperature. Since one electron is moving back along the wire at the same time another is moving forward, no net charge is transported along the wire. If a battery is hooked to the ends of the wire, the electrons get pushed all in the same direction along the wire. The speed of the electrons along the wire is less than an inch (few millimeters) per second. So it takes any single electrons a long time to get all the way around the circuit. But there are so many electrons that they bump into one another, like dominoes, and there is a net shift of electric charges around the circuit that can happen at speeds up to the speed of light.
