CHASING THE WILD DRAGON:
Normal sources do not furnish electrons and current to a circuit anyway. Sources just furnish Poynting flow S and EMF. [note 16] In the receiving current loop, the EMF appears automatically once the S-flow flows in and is "locked on to" by the receiving electrons. Given q**, you will immediately have J* if the electrons are free to move in the conducting circuit (see Figure 13). Further, you have eliminated all the loss terms from the standard Poynting equation for energy losses. So all the energy flow S just flows across the SC section, without any current or Cooper pairs flowing through that SC section. The SC section has become a "bridge" which (1) strips off the Poynting field energy density flow S from the electron current dq/dt on the sourcing side of the SC/bridge section, by simply reducing the dq/dt to zero; and (2) continues to pass the S-flow across the dq/dt-blocked SC/bridge section to the other side (Figure 14). The excess S-flow (and EMF) pours into the receiving dq/dt-isolated current loop, exciting the electrons therein to produce dq/dt and J*. Any closed current loop is self-powered, once it receives S and EMF. It furnishes its own electrons; it only requires excess energy and EMF. [note 17]

So our approach gives room temperature superconductivity in a very straightforward manner, once you discover how to block the current dq/dt in a conductor. Blocking it in an insulator is not sufficient, because that drops the potential and stops the S-flow and the equipotential * (the EMF). However, a degenerate semiconductor such as the Fogal chip can be used, as can several other processes for blocking dq/dt in a conductor. We will discuss these in a future article.

Another advantage of this approach to room temperature superconductivity is that now one can also have permissible overunity coefficient of performance. Now the load can be placed in its own S-receiving, isolated current loop. With the sourcing current loop furnishing only S and not dq/dt, the load is still powered normally in its own closed dq/dt current loop, but none of the load current is passed back through the back EMF of the primary source in the sourcing circuit.

This principle -- that at least a substantial portion of the load current must not pass back through the primary source -- is the primary principle required for a permissible overunity electrical machine (Figure 15). A permissible overunity electrical machine is one which produces more power in the load than you have to put into the machine to run it.
