 Quote by Studiot I thought my poetic cloud example would make it clear that both would likely occur. Sorry if this was not clear.
That's ok. No problem. Can you explain? I think if we slowly increase the voltage until it reaches a point to where an arc would form, this arc would travel from one pole to the other.

Are you saying that when this arc occurred, it would jump from one pole to the other and the ground simultaneously?

I would tend to disagree with that hypothesis, but I bet we could test this one out easy enough.
