Post:

Bernard,

1. OK, so I have sensed a VdG field many times while not receiving a spark.
My hair moves a little bit - that's sensing, isn't it?

2. I am just using an extreme example to lead into the possibility that we
CAN sense electric fields. Who is to say that someone else cannot sense a
field of 1/10 the strength of the weakest one that I could sense, for
example?

I don't understand. The discussion was about fields* not current.

* and not intense ones either.
