Resonance of a standing wave increases its potential energy?

I forgot to mention what is probably the most important set of possible implied connections that were inspired from reading the quote from the last paragraph of Joseph Cater's book, "The Awesome Life Force" on page 31 and continuing on to page 32, that...

Mr. Cater mentioned that this is the reason for the speed of light phenomenon that whenever a particle approaches the speed of light, it has maxed out its electromagnetic kinetic energy at the expense of its electrostatic potential.

A standing, resonant, electromagnetic wave may have a characteristic of non-motion such that its electromagnetic component shrinks yielding an increase in an electrostatic field? In other words, resonance increases the potential energy of an electrical system making a Tesla coil an amplifier of sorts of whatever is possible to generate with any fixed amount of energy?

I also thought that whenever the current and voltage coils of a watt-hour meter spin its aluminum disk using electromagnetic forces, that an electrostatic force is being depleted by the braking magnet as it soaks up this electrostatic charge by converting it into an electromagnetic one. There must be an abundant supply of potential energy in the form of electrostatic charge for the disk to have an infinite potential to accelerate without a magnet to brake it? And there must then be an abundant supply of electrostatic energy to convert to a more usable form of electromagnetic energy by the absorptive abilities of the braking magnet. And if the braking magnet is enlarged, then it could act like an electromagnetic capacitor?

But because of the braking magnet's permanent magnetization and its small size, then it can only soak up so much before reaching saturation and discarding the excess. This then forces the disk to discard its excess when it reaches its own saturation, and there's no significant benefit obtained.

But if the braking magnet were to be demagnetized and enlarged to any amount, and a pickup coil wrapped around it supplying a load, then maybe this would replicate the original intention of but one aspect of Tesla's Tri-Metal Generator.

It doesn't vindicate all aspects, since it almost doesn't matter how the disk is spun. I just think the focus of power transfer, conversion, and magnification might be between these two elements and their mutual interaction.

This idea is premised on the supposition that the watt-hour meter may be translating electromagnetic energy into electrostatic energy initially to drive the disk, but then does the reverse when the braking magnet slows down the RPM of the disk: it translates electrostatic energy into electromagnetic.

And then I thought that if a Tesla coil could be the foundation for setting up a standing wave, or resonance, between all the elements -- the electromagnetic forces driving the disk and the electrostatic forces transferring from disk to braking magnet, then maybe an AC driven watt-hour meter is not the only way to attempt to replicate Tesla's Special Generator since AC may not be easy to resonate into a standing wave? But maybe a pulsed DC from a Tesla coil would be a better way to drive the spin of the aluminum disk of the watt-hour meter if compressed air is not resorted to? In which case, it becomes questionable whether the disk need spin? Because the disk starts to look like the output terminal of a Tesla coil: a hollow, possibly stationary, aluminum toroid?

And then I thought that the only thing missing from this scenario is a magnetizable pickup material to surround a Tesla coil's output terminal to convert its electrostatic discharges into a process of electromagnetic absorption into its magnetizable material amounting to an equivalent action between disk and braking magnet of a watt-meter. And if the magnetizable pickup were to be enlarged and wound with a coil, then maybe the output current of this coil could supply a load to whatever degree is needed based on: the power of the Tesla coil and the size of this magnetizable sink.
