# 24.004 Longitudinal vibrations of electrons in matter produce electricity

David Ash
The New Physics of Consciousness, 2007
Pages 219-220, Longitudinal vibrations of electrons in matter produce electricity

To present my understanding of electricity I draw a parallel between electricity and sound. Sound is longitudinal vibrations in matter. Think of it as compression waves. The compression waves, longitudinal vibrations of electrons in matter produce electricity.

When electrons are free to move in a conductive substance, they can be aligned by the application of a potential gradient across the conductor. Once aligned, movement can be transmitted as vibration from one electron to another down the voltage gradient. Electricity is the passage of ‘a shunt’ between electrons rather than the passage of the electrons themselves. Whilst the electrons drift slowly in the potential gradient – at approximately three hundred kilometers per hour – the electricity travels at approximately the speed of light – three hundred thousand kilometers per second. The parallel between electricity and sound makes this clear. Sound passes through air at about 1,000 miles per hour whilst, even in a hurricane, the air itself moves at only a fraction of this speed. Sound isn’t the flow of the air; it is a vibration passing through the air. Sound is a compression and rarefaction that is tantamount to a shunting of air molecules. Like sound, electricity is the passage of activity through a medium rather than the passage of the medium itself. Sound is the vibration of atomic matter. Electricity is the vibration of sub-atomic matter; it is sub-atomic sound.
