In summary, scientists studying the generation of magnetic fields in Earth and other planets often overlook a crucial aspect of their theoretical foundation - the existence of two magnetic fields, known as the alpha and beta fields. These fields are determined by the dynamics of positive and negative charges and combine to create the magnetic fields observed in space. However, many scientists fail to consider the alpha field in their dynamo models, potentially hindering their understanding of celestial magnetic fields. It is unclear whether this omission is intentional or due to a lack of awareness.

In our quest to understand how the Earth and other planets generate their magnetic fields why do scientists consistently leave out half of the theoretical foundation on which they build their dynamo models? In other words, according to the theory relativity and the superposition principle, if we assume our point of observation to be some fictitious point in space then the Earth should have a bi (two) magnetic field associated with it. Irregardless if the fields are generated in the planets hot liquid iron core or not, it should have a magnetic field associated with its negative charges, which I call the beta magnetic field and it should also have a magnetic field associated with its positive charges, which I call the alpha magnetic field. These two magnetic fields combine to makeup the magnetic fields observe on the planets in space. In fact, not only does there exist two magnetic fields but each field also have unique characteristics as determined by the dynamics of the charges that generate it.

I asked the above question not to test your intelligence but rather to make you truly think about your understanding of basic physics and what scientists take for granted in their attempts to explain celestial magnetic fields. Obviously, if they leave out half the information in their founding primus then they will never get a complete understanding of celestial magnetic fields.

So the real question is why do scientists continually leave out the alpha magnetic field in their dynamo models? Is there a valid reason or are they just unaware of this component of celestial magnetic fields?

First of all, I appreciate your question and the thought-provoking perspective you have brought to the discussion of celestial bi-magnetic fields. I agree that it is important for scientists to consider all aspects of a theory and not leave out any foundational information. However, I believe that the reason why scientists may not explicitly mention the bi-magnetic fields in their dynamo models is because they are already taken into account in the overall understanding of magnetic fields.

The concept of relativity and the superposition principle are fundamental principles in physics and are applied in the study of magnetic fields. The superposition principle states that the total field at a point is the sum of the individual fields produced by each source. Therefore, when scientists are studying the magnetic field of a planet, they are already considering the contribution of both the negative and positive charges, resulting in the overall magnetic field observed.

Furthermore, the understanding of celestial magnetic fields goes beyond just the charges present in the planet's core. Other factors such as the planet's rotation, convection currents, and the interaction with the solar wind also play a significant role in generating and shaping the magnetic field. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that scientists are leaving out half of the information in their models, as they are taking into account all the relevant factors in their study.

In conclusion, while the concept of bi-magnetic fields is certainly an interesting perspective, I believe that it is already incorporated in the overall understanding of celestial magnetic fields. Scientists are continuously striving to improve and refine their understanding of the universe, and I have no doubt that they will consider all relevant information in their pursuit of knowledge. Thank you for bringing this perspective to the discussion.
