In my opinion. Those who setup rules for inventions have not understood. Like in fusion or battery development. Setting up simple rules that everybody needs to follow just will just result in incremental progress.
We need groundbreaking inventions. One way to figure out those is to look a the man made ”rules” of the innovative process.
Here you just set generate new questions to the rules. Questions are like finding errors in the rule assumption.
So for a battery. A non moving part battery is more safe and can be placed in a phone. But that does not mean its the best for a car. I mean the car is big enough for a moving part car engine. So why not a moving part battery.
So the aim of a groundbreaking invention is probably to invent a ”moving parts battery machine” for vehicles.
Even if you have to provide a little input energy to the battery ion transport. I wonder if it could be worth it. I mean a zero ion velocity would mean zero efficiency. So maybe you could get higher efficiency with increasing velocity.
Here I guess that maybe the battery could be unrolled into a Tape Battery. Increasing tape width will increase number of ions per minute at some speed. Maybe this is not enough but its a start of a battery machine.
If you know the answer to the question why can you calculate the how?
I think its possible. If you think about. It could work like a filter for random. So make a guess calculation. Look back and check to see if it makes sense to the physics network. Iterate until it all make sense. A bit crude algorithm though.
One thing that has to be learned from prior observable data is the network assessment of what makes sense. A bit like in machine learning.
The guess is that the sun is a super gigantic network. Then from what I speculate. An atom machine type of a network has starting values that are important to its surroundings. They the starting values I guess are revealed by the emitted light.
So for a complex part of an invention. Its imperative to know the atom network starting values. That is. Its parameter starting configuration.
So light emission should be part of the toolkit. There should exist direct ways and indirect ways to measure things.
I wonder. Would it be possible to make a stronger battery by using ?larger charged objects instead of single Li-ions. That is. If you get the ion object to a high velocity then would not its total mass affect the performance? Is there some optimal weight?
