Although what I'm about to describe does not seem to have  much to do with
gravity, nevertheless I will ask if any of the contributors recognise this
strange event.

Some years ago, a friend who was the best authority on tesla apparatus in my
part of the world, disclosed to me, reluctantly, that he had constructed a
small unusual shape toroidal former wound with wire in a equally unusual
manner. Imagine a doughnut shape basket squashed in on the sides so as to
form a slot in the centre rather than a hole.

Wire was wound from the slot  area and the winding progressing up and around
the out side surface of the "doughnut",  and finally back up in the slot
area.  Also there were some turns of wire circulating within this "basket".
Now this fellow had attached a  H.F. transmitter to the device along with
high voltage DC . He claimed  that when he switched  power to the coil, the
room he was in seemed to be shrinking in toward the coil. Needless to say
that it frightened the daylights out of him.  I reassured him that it was
not dangerous, because  if he had closed his eyes then he would be not aware
of the distortion. I have tried over the years to set up the experiment
again..He  has at last considered this. I would be very keen to find out if
any one out there knows any thing about this phenomena.
