Resonant Oscillations of Lightning - An Ideal Thundercloud

Also ...

I developed this model of an ideal thundercloud in resonant oscillation with its immediate surroundings loosely derived from Eric Dollard's model of an LMD analog computer emulating a Tesla coil.

LMD - Longitudinal Magneto-Dielectric
TEM - Transverse Electro-Magnetic

Newton's Cradle exhibits both transverse waves at its two ends while the energy translates into a longitudinal shock wave in resonance with the compressed medium in the center through which it must pass.

An ideal thundercloud (acting as an oscillator) will resonate its lightning discharges through the two inductors leading to ground - named in this model: 'lightning discharge' and 'lightning discharge #2' - and develop magnitudes of energy similar to this model.
