  Clay, All -

  I hope that the Tesla List does not get side-tracked into discussions on
scientific dogmas, viewpoints, theory vs practice, Aristotelian views,
determinism, chaos theory, etc, etc,etc.

  I do not think that "contradicting theory" is any big deal. It may mean
either the theory is wrong or is being misinterpreted. A decision can easily
be made by testing real world coils. This is what coilers like Malcolm are
doing every day.

  I now find that the  "John vs Malcolm"  discussion was referring to two
different things. Malcolm was referring to "transfer is lossless". I was
referring to "coupling vs tuning". That can be chaos.
