Quadrifilar Coil

November 17, 2014

As I am editing my second edition of volume one and the second volume, I am finding small errors that need to be corrected. The picture on my blog Multifilar can easily be replaced, but my book has been in print for a year, so I am including the file replacement and an additional file that will be in my second volume. The second picture has a very important visual aid for those who are designing transformers or resonant circuits, it has the layout so you can see the mutual inductance of each winding, a very simple but effective aid.

Here is the replacement file:

Live Interview

December 14, 2013

Hi Fellow researchers ,

Adam Bull has released a 4 Hr interview on Youtube, it is informal and free flowing, about my book “Talking to the Birds”.

Here is the Link-

Here is the Press Release:

After many years of research, personal discovery and seeing the world through the perception of an Artist, one who by his very nature must understand something very deeply before he renders its likeness, Arto Heino has released his first volume “Talking to the Birds”. The subjects covered in his book are as varied as his pallet, he shows a different perspective about each subject he studies.  Volume I, A compilation of his best works, you will see the many different hats he wears as he sifts through a broad spectrum of knowledge with a profound insight into several pieces of hidden information ignored by most other researchers.

To understand the author of this work is to peer into layers of understanding that have not been lifted in most researchers lifetime. In the chapter on Archeo-Astronomy Arto looks at some of the basic assumptions about the nature of man’s history and came to some simple conclusions, the evidence he uses is not a rehash of another theory but new and startling revelations about the cyclic nature of our consciousness. The artist and writer Arto Heino shines the light where few others have on past ancient artifacts and current sciences that should give you a new way to see the past.

As a young child, Arto found meaning in natures chaos and his deep connection to some of its hidden attributes long before he articulated his understanding to others. Books gave him one of the tools to peer into history and find those who could help him guide his vision, great artists like Leonardo Da Vinci took him to a simpler way of personal scientific and artistic discovery. To show some of what he has learned from the master he gives a brief insight into one of Da Vinci’s more famous artworks.

The lure of electricity is never far from his thoughts, he has several chapters that deal with Electronics, Invention and Machines they cover some of the most important works of Nikola Tesla. Arto shows his own artistic method of understanding the circuits of Tesla and removes a lot of the mystery that surround his work. The circuit models by Arto are more like artworks that have a landscape of parameters and clues to other possibilities. He pries into some of the mystery that surrounds the work of Lester Hendershot, Don Smith and Henry Moray, giving  new insights that could help to guide other researchers to new conclusions.

The nature of the geometric abstraction is not just pretty patterns like most modern conveyors, to Arto this is where you can find a deeper connection to the sciences. He sees a simple form such as a triangle as a new beginning to a new and non-complex form of mathematics, Quantum Arithmetic. As he implies he is only expanding on something that the geometers have tried to bury, Arto shows some of his studies in Quantum Arithmetic and the expansion of a new type of geometric discovery, where he applies it to the Giza pyramid, the Kings chamber and an Egyptian artifact that has alluded many archaeologists and geometers for the past 80 years.

The surprise in the book is not just his varied perspective of technology but in one chapter Arto lifts the surface off our modern paradigm, he includes some of his more popular cartoon images to highlight the high paced and disturbing reductions of our elite. Arto as an artist and a musician gives those inclined an interesting group of studies.

Magic Square Coil Technology

June 5, 2013

I have decided to make a new blog rather than updating an older one, refer to I would like to thank Andy, he  has prompted me to finish my chapter on coil geometry, with a new heading of Magic Square Coil Form. Back in 1996 I was working hard on winding many stator coils for the Robert Adams pulse motor designs, when I realized the few coils I wound in bifilar geometries seem to function with non linear results. This is when I discovered the varieties of subtle refinements that could be engineered into a basic system, that can give  measurable increments of control over the energy storage of the coil while it is pulsed.

Estored =1/2 * L* I^2 = Energy in Joules stored in the Inductance

Estored = 1/2 * C * V^2 = Energy in Joules stored in the Capacitance

I chose the Magic Square of Four as the prototype for the coils design, refer to the first diagram that reveals my logic in a simplified form. The left stator coil is the left half of the Magic Square, this is how magic squares work mirror reflections that balance the numeric relationships to create harmony, where the wiring is now the pathways that have both Inductance and Capacitance is the same internal geometry as  a magic square, the right stator is now the right side of the magic square.


To understand the significance of creating chaotic systems that the outcomes  cannot be easily predicted, is to look into the heart of a living organism. The number of square four arrangements  available to the constructor becomes 880  basic Magic Square Four patterns.  If you expand the system you could have 4 coils each with a complete magic square arrangement giving you millions of 880 combinations. The design parameters can be expanded to include odd squares and  very large magic squares. The coils could also be split into the columns and rows giving you say 5 coils each with a in 5 and out 5 winding scheme, this will give you 25 separate wires that give you a square 5 arrangement.

The main criteria for any success is to keep all wires coming from the stators the same length and short as possible, a circuit board design would keep any stray Inductance and Capacitance to a minimum. A small circuit board could be at both ends of the stator with holes matching the wire ends and another attached between the stators, where you could mount a patch board or a special wire coil arrangement that Andy suggested. The environmental energy that exists in a chaotic form surrounds every object, a tumult of electrostatic, EM radiation , heat, dielectric charge fields and magnetism, this energy is not available to be absorbed into the circuit unless we can create a couple to its random behavior, and make a gate so the circuit can make use of it. This is the basis of a natural system based on natures gift to humanity Magic Squares, they are but discoveries of a natural system of numbers that can be translated in many different ways. The chaotic nature of magic squares gives you the invisible harmonic coupling  that needs to exist in a cyclic  system of energy exchange, the gating can now be engineered in the form of magic squares.

Here are the latest additions to help those who want to explore unknown territory. Regards Arto


This next diagram should help you expand the possibilities of the simple methods I have inaugurated .

Multi-Filar Coils

August 24, 2012

While making observations of coil designs that have been used over the centuries, I noticed only those that showed some perceived useful results were kept in the arsenal of the scientists, the rest were either ignored or forgotten. There are two basic types and a 3rd being the combination:

1 Circular – Eg Solenoid, flat spiral,spherical, toroidal, mobius

2 Non-circular – Eg Basket weave, geometric, polyhedral, star forms, mobius

The circular types have 3 basic types  a resultant 4th and the unique 5th type:

1 Rings adding vertically –  Solenoid Coil

2 Rings expanding diametrically  – Flat spiral

3 Rings adding in a circular form – Toroidal

4 Rings adding vertically and/or diametrically and/or circular

a) Conical – differing sizes in both direction

b) Multilayer Solenoid – same sizes vertically + differing sizes diametrically

c) Multilayer Flat Spiral – same coils sizes vertically + adding vertically

d) Toroidal and Poloidal windings mixed sizes vertically + differing sizes diametrically

e) Spherical rotations windings mixed sizes radially + differing sizes diametrically

5 Winding folding into itself, creating a single surface  – all possible geometries – Mobuis

The shapes of coils are one aspect the other is the winding order and direction, thus creating multiple poles, cross coupling inductance, retarding or increasing both the inductance and the capacitance as the design requires, the addition of the mobius windings diversifies the basic options, this is where the art is at in 2012. A good example of combining many geometries and winding types is the:

Magnetic coil(1820 Hans Christian Oersted)

Faraday coil(1831 Micheal Faraday)

Henry coil(1831 Joesph Henry)

Induction coil(1836 Nickolas Callan)

Ruhmkorff coil(1851 Heinrich Ruhmkorff)

Helmholtz coil(1869 Herman von Helmholtz)

Maxwell coil(1873 James Maxwell)

Cook coil(1871 Daniel Cook)

Tesla coil 1/4 wave(1891 Nicola Tesla)

Tesla Flat coil(1890 Nicola Tesla)

Tesla Bifilar coil(1894 Nicola Tesla)

Hubbard coil(1918 Alfred Hubbard)

O’Leary Coil(1920 William O’Leary)

Hendershot coil(1928 Lester Hendershot)

Interceptor coil(1946 John Wiegand)

Tokamak coil(1950 Oleg Lavrentiev)

Stellartator coil(1950 Lyman Spitzer)

Smith coil(1952 Wilber Smith)

Fusor coil(1964 Philo Farnsworth)

Hooper coil(1968 William Hooper)

Rodin coil(1986 Marco Rodin)

Biaxial Poloid coil(1990 Bo Atkinson)

Tetra Helix coil(1991 Bo Atkinson)

Vortex coil(1992 Ken Gailey)

Double Helix coil(TM) (2007 AML)

Not to mention my own explorations in coil geometry with:

Mandela coil(1990 Arto Heino) – Page 55 – Link

Crown coil(1994/2011 Arto Heino) – Link

Infinty coil(1993/2011 Arto Heino) – Link

– and many toroidal/polyhedral mixtures that have been popping up regularly with names like the Star ship coil, Loohan coil, Polish coil,  Big Secret coil, some of these are marvels of artistry and human innovation.

Not to mention the many non inductive windings that are used as resistances. This has been looked at for at least 200 years, Nicola Tesla was one engineer/Scientist who’s original thinking left a legacy of numerous winding geometries he used to design his motors and coils,one of these is his Bifilar design. This design exposed a unique addition to the idea of combining the merits of both coil and capacitor without addition hardware contrivances, the anti-series winding nulls out self-inductance.

Nicola Tesla writes that a standard coil of 1000 turns with a potential of 100 volts across it will have a difference of 0.1 volt between turns.
100/1000 = 0.1
A similar bifilar coil will have a potential of 50 volts between turns.
100/2 = 50
In that the stored energy is a function of the square of the voltages, the ratio of energy in the bifilar to a standard coil will be
50^2/0.1^2 = 2500/0.01 = 250000
Which as stated by Tesla, “the energy stored is 250000 times greater than the standard coil!”

The storage of energy when pulsing a bifilar coil is n amount more than a standard solenoid/flat coil, as Tesla stated and gave you the formula to engineer this type of coil, we should be incorporating this simple idea into many everyday devices. I have drawn a few design methodologies that I hope will spur this well known innovation into more interesting directions.

These are basic bifilar solenoid configuration showing the capacitance between each winding. The windings can be rearranged in a different order to change the amount of induction and capacitance you put into the coil.  The winding below shows what can be done to rearrange the capacitive differential to increase the energy storage.

The graphic table below shows how many different arrangements that can be used with a Quadrifilar coil system, each will give a different result for the inductance, capacitance and its resonant frequency spectrum.

A great science/engineering project or University paper for someone would be to tabulate and analyze  each arrangement,  you might just get your doctorate on this.

The flat coil is a dimension less than the solenoid and a lot easier to redefine into  multi-filar arrangements.

The basic geometries involved in designing coils, transformers and bifilar systems must have a few design rules so the engineering of these items become straight forward and adaptable to the needs of the energy transformations. Here are a few simple systems that can be easily expanded and used creatively.

The cipher I am using here is:

B = Blue              R = Red

U = Upper          L = Lower

N = North           S = South      / is the upper part of the cross

E = East               W = West       \ is the upper part of the cross

The order of the letters is the order from the top to the bottom.

The order of the numbers is from the left to the right.

The first set is based on 2 simple loops. This will give you 8 different forms:

The next is the topology of a single loop of wire which loops on itself, like a bifilar or just a plain solenoid:

As you can see by these configurations, the standard engineering practice used in industry only use a small portion of these geometries. Now if you loop 2 coils as used in transformers you will see industry only apply 1 or 2 of these geometries in 98% of all transformers.

The fusing of  Adams motor and the Tesla bifilar coil was one of the first iterations that showed me the correctness of this approach by its exceptional efficiency.

Incorporating both bifilar and loop transformations as shown previously, you can begin to appreciate the transformations I have below to create a magic square coil, as originally shown on my Artoworld website in 1999.

Old photo from 1999

Most of the original readers of these documents never understood my topology in 1999, even though I built many of these coil constructs as stators for pulsed motors. The current breed of experimenter has less inhibitions to these  geometric forms. The first arrangement is the non-magic numeric sequence, just the same as if you wrap a standard solenoid.


The next diagram is the magic square arrangement, which utilizes the the pairing of the “17” as a magic square paring which translates to the bifilar pairing.

Below is the original stator coil I wound in 1999, it performed well and required high voltage(24v) and low current(0.001 amp).

I hope this small extract from my upcoming book “Talking with the Birds” will be helpful in any research you might be doing. Regards Arto

*** Update***

I have had a request to explain the Tesla/Adams Bifilar setup, here is a diagram that should make it transparent. The consequence of using this way of connecting coils will give you a multitude of possibilities for the experimenter to find interesting combinations ,  have fun regards Arto.
