Attempting to characterize the property/s of aluminum versus copper...

Since chemical processes are heavily influenced by eletronegativity tending to favor one association among elements and compounds over others in their vicinity (Stanley Meyer's nitrogen favoring its combination with hydrogen over oxygen under positive ionization? - Peter Lindemann), I wonder if a time-honored recipe for cleaning silver might have some insightful bearing on any attempt to characterize the relative properties of copper versus aluminum since copper and silver are in the same column of the periodic chart of the elements along with gold and platinum, etc?

I remember, now, a procedure for bringing back the shine of old silver dollars: pour boiling hot water over them while they sit in a pan lined with aluminum foil and dissolve salt and baking soda into the water and let it sit. So, I got still more curious and went to see if I'm correct about the details of this recipe, at...

"I love little tricks like these for around the house, especially since I'm a chemist by training and can't help myself. I just looked this up, because I understand that the aluminum (Al) reduces (gives electrons to) the silver, but I was under the impression that silver tarnish was an oxide made by reacting with oxygen (Ag2O), very much like iron oxide in rust. BUT google just told me that it's actually silver sulfide, therefore you're actually forming aluminum sulfide at the end, as well as the reduced silver (Ag metal)! Science is awesome."
I wonder what the iron is giving up (electrons?) when it is inline with my Earthing connection if it appears to be taking on any negativity (my psychological state) and what is it giving up in return? Especially since this is a subtle energy exchange based on iron's material properties?

Maybe the iron is giving up electrons whenever it takes on whatever negativity (karma) is surrounding me. Since all pure metals take on a negative charge during their chemical purification from their oxidized state as natural ores, they have an ionic negative charge of their own with which to give up. So, one possible definition to negative karma may be stressful energy in the sense that it is energy ill defined for vague goals which may not even exist per that situation which it is attempting to address? An ill spent, ill fated failure of energetic expense leading to fatigue without success to counter-balance that fatigue? A dead-ended endeavor? Only out of ignorance could such karma be sent from an ignorant source. But its arrival is hardly veiled in ignorance. Hence, the need to find a conveniently located trash bin (in the form of an iron cored bio-Earthing device {bedsheet}) to send it to (by extracting it from myself while I sleep) in the form of a dump designed to attract 'free' (mental) energy - energy not affiliated with (free of, and unattached to) any logistically success-oriented goal/s. So, mental positivity is bound and dedicated to specific goals instead of mere cathartic venting for diverse reasons. Having such a dump could be analogized to a lamp lit nearby to attract all of the flying insects that are buzzing around my head to keep them away from me.

And for that matter, how would these three elements of copper, aluminum and iron respond to each other in a combined setting? I guess that's what @Sputins is alluding to?
