If you have some other way to suspend the charges in space, fine


If you check out the second video I posted, they are able to ionize air to create plasma in mid air by focusing laser. Now does plasma equal capacitor? I dunno if that is the case by Resident Evil's standards . But anyhow I haven't found a better method than creating plasma in mid air, you're free to improve the mechanism


Now that I think about it, what you're doing only really makes sense if you're making a joke about how the thing you're asking for (electric fields without capacitor plates) is really just light. Except the electromagnetic fields of light aren't like those of the capacitor, because the capacitor has a static, constant field (away from the plates' edges), and light does not. You're correct that you can suspend charges in space if you also use magnetic fields, but then you don't have the electric field of a capacitor just floating in midair.


I am not making a joke. I really would like a magnetic field, electric field, suspended in mid air. The fact about light is that it also travels at the speed of light. Having a magnetic field suspended in mid air would be a start, but creating one with a coil of wires at however distance you want from the source, is that possible? And to create a magnetic field into a desired shape. Sounds like plasma and laser is still the way to go.

"P.S I've always imagined you could just build and shape a brain like magnetic field in mid air with a powerful magnetic field generator, I could be wrong."

Yep, give up now on creating billions of finely controlled, interconnected paths of EM suspended in mid-air, the brain's infrastructure of electrical signals is not a network of EM fields suspended or isolated in space. The brain's neural network only exists as a viable mechanism because of the insulative properties of the fat cells surrounding each synaptic link, and complex chains of signal boosting & inhibiting chemical emitters & receptors. They are of limited strength so as to not excessively interfere through induction, and the neurological process is far more electrochemical than it is electromagnetic, despite human instrumentation used for measuring brain activity relying on EM fields so as to limit invasiveness.

Quantum computing seeks to approach an equivalent massive parallelism through light as both an EM wave & particle measurable in quanta, with additional aggregate signal measurability in frequency & amplitude,
but it faces enormous challenges of error detection & limitation & unique identification & isolation of said quanta,
in addition to limitations in terms of the realistic number, strength, & individual width of beams which can be achieved, including the requirement to exist in a vacuum (not air) to limit interference, to separate emitters & detectors to limit signal bleed, and the bottlenecks induced at every quantum-to-electronic interface. Also, those individual light paths follow straight paths, unlike neurone/synapse paths. (All light actually follows a straight path - it is space which curves due to gravity wells)

One thing I'm worried is if you do attempt to remove this electromagnetic field from the brain, which your consciousness would go along with it, the brain would generate a new electromagnetic field or new consciousness.

There was this great debate whether consciousness is formed from chemical synapses or electrical synapses in the brain, in the end I favor the electrical synapses because the chemical synapses with the neural transmitters does not constitute consciousness. It is the electrical field from the electrical synapses that constitute consciousness. And so you would ask, if you do build the entire brain's circuitry in the air using electric field, would it contain consciousness? My speculation is yes it does.
