In the recent TPOD about Great Tango Tower and other such anomalies, he states:
(emphasis mine)"Since electricity is a pulling force and does not “impact” the surface, anomalous formations like Great Trango Tower are the result of gigantic secondary discharges that rose up to meet oppositely charged leader strokes descending from above."
I find this very curious, as I've never considered electricity a pulling force. Nor a force at all, but rather an E/M transmission, which would be a "push", not a pull. One could say using Einstein's Equivalence Principle that it all depends on the point of view, but regarding lightning blasts striking the Earth, we would have to look at it from the lightning's point of view. Is the lightning pulling? And how? What mechanism creates a pull with an up-vector?
I'm also aware that if we track lightning at a slow enough frame of reference, we often see it rising up from the ground to meet the incoming lightning. But again, wouldn't that be a push and not a pull? Electricity in our devices pushes electrons, it doesn't pull them. That's what current is, I believe.
