I can't be the only one who sees this could be used in terrorist applications as a trigger for homemade explosives. Or is that just because I'm an SF writer?

We barely can get the new 7 nanometer process done for computer processors - and he said this is a method that could be used for a 2 nanometer process! What companies are trying this or messing with this? I believe Intel is trying to use ultraviolet light right now for future processors.

If the wave is trapped in the grape how is it even able to enter if it can't escape?

hey, how much should be the size of the grape (or ball) for a 24 Ghz wave ?
I woul say 0.12 cm instead of 1.2 cm since the frequency is 10 times bigger right ?

"Wow. That's interesting ; I haven't thought of it that way."
Me: "But, you just did". Haha!
To me brings the question of gow ling does the microwave energy stays trapped in the grape or any food? What happens if residual microwave energy is still in the food and you consume it, how does it affect your DNA?
Our bodies do not resonate by microwave, at least not constantly, naturally at all.

You got an effect at 120Hz - twice mains frequency? But the irradiating was at 2.4Ghz? how can that be? does the 2.4Ghz ride on the full-wave rectified mains?

This explains alot in other areas/fields/applications as applying the same principle of electromagnetics. 2 things come to mind.
1. Balls of lights aka earthquake lights. Espicially when in conjuction with CME waves passing the magnetosphere. Or the plate boundries/faults.
2. (Reading between the lines) This Really illustrates the dangers of 5G (millimeter wave lengths), as the waves shorten thru medium/organic material (aka human body!) From 16cm down to around 1cm... possibly 1/16th of millimeter... think about it.♨🔥📵🚨
Something to ponder:
Sweat glands, nerves etc.
Great video.

Exactly. The human body works on extraordinarily complex electrical signals and chemical reactions that nobody fully understands. The people who designed the Titanic are long gone, but their spirit lives on.

This video left me speechless for like 10 minutes. Mainly due to the fact, that only now we fully understand what is happening on YT vid from several years ago. This and some of Destins vids just overload my brain, in a good way. I have no background in any kind of science btw so big thanks for showing me in detail how the world works !
