VSF: What follows is a theoretical effort to connect the metal oxide nanoparticles (aluminum, barium, lithium, etc.) that we are all breathing and are now inundating & permeating our bodies, all life forms and vegetation as molecular fire accelerants, and potential weaponry. Has our world been made flammable? Have we been made flammable?

WIKI: Electrostatics is a branch of physics that studies electric charges at rest. … Electrostatics involves the buildup of charge on the surface of objects due to contact with other surfaces.
A plasmon is part of a group of ‘plasmoids’ that are defined as “high-density plasma formations, consisting of excited and charged particles” — which are “supplied by the external energy flux (for example, by MicroWave pumping). [Atmosphere & Ionosphere, Elementary Processes, Discharges, and Plasmoids; Vladimir Bychkov, et al; Springer, 2013]
Insights from a friend: The electrostatic field initiates or activates the breakdown of the metallic nanoparticles that have already saturated our bodies, biological and imbedded in all life forms.
Thermate = aluminum oxide (aluminum with oxygen) and ferric (iron) oxide. Both are accelerants (a substance, such as a petroleum distillate, that is used as a catalyst, as in spreading an intentionally set fire.). Accelerants are explosive materials, meaning rapid burning, that contain the fuel and the oxygen to facilitate the explosive rapid-burning that is self-sufficient.
Thermite = nanoparticle sizes of aluminum oxide and ferric oxide. Grinding nanoparticles increases the surface area of the particles and the mixture — which increases & maximizes the oxidation of the mixture & compound, and maximizes the burning rate.
The burning rate is at such a level that it will melt all compounds, or elements, the entities that are contained.

Filament formation in wind-cloud interactions. II. Clouds with turbulent density, velocity, and magnetic fields

(Submitted on 20 Jun 2017)
We present a set of numerical experiments designed to systematically investigate how turbulence and magnetic fields influence the morphology, energetics, and dynamics of filaments produced in wind-cloud interactions. We cover 3D magnetohydrodynamic systems of supersonic winds impacting clouds with turbulent density, velocity, and magnetic fields.
We find that log-normal density distributions aid shock propagation through clouds, increasing their velocity dispersion and producing filaments with expanded cross sections and highly-magnetised knots and sub-filaments.
In self-consistently turbulent scenarios the ratio of filament to initial cloud magnetic energy densities is ~1. The effect of Gaussian velocity fields is bound to the turbulence Mach number: Supersonic velocities trigger a rapid cloud expansion; subsonic velocities only have a minor impact. The role of turbulent magnetic fields depends on their tension and is similar to the effect of radiative losses: the stronger the magnetic field or the softer the gas equation of state, the greater the magnetic shielding at wind-filament interfaces and the suppression of Kelvin-Helmholtz instabilities.
Overall, we show that including turbulence and magnetic fields is crucial to understanding cold gas entrainment in multi-phase winds. While cloud porosity and supersonic turbulence enhance the acceleration of clouds, magnetic shielding protects them from ablation and causes Rayleigh-Taylor-driven sub-filamentation. Wind-swept clouds in turbulent models reach distances ~15-20 times their core radius and acquire bulk speeds ~0.3-0.4 of the wind speed in one cloud-crushing time, which are three times larger than in non-turbulent models. In all simulations the ratio of turbulent magnetic to kinetic energy densities asymptotes at ~0.1-0.4, and convergence of all relevant dynamical properties requires at least 64 cells per cloud radius.
