40J (for example) can give a totally different sparklength under the
following situations:

#1 - a single shot of 40J into cold air vs a shot of 40J into a hot,
well-established streamer path

#2 - 40J under either situation coming from substantially different
secondary coils, i.e. the L/C ratios and hence output voltages for
one thing being totally different.


Hi Malcolm, All,

Sounds like "A non-linear dynamical system critically dependent upon 
initial conditions, i.e. chaos." If this is so, then there can be no 
complete, closed, deterministic form for describing the operation of a TC, 
and the debate starts to resemble the Mandelbrot set, i.e no matter how 
close you look at it, there are still infinite convolutions and there can 
be no  resolution. The debate must therefore be infinite :-((
