On and on and on!

At the end of the last experiment, I was puzzled. My analysis of experiments 3.10-3.13 didn't help me understand what was happening at the moments when the prototype seems to be 'bouncing' in parts of the videos.

Two more repititions of the exact same settings as the experiments 3.10-3.13, experiments 3.14 and 3.15 shown below didn't bring me any closer.

Nonetheless, encouraged by the positive results, I decided to attempt to amplify the effect by increasing the time period. Two experiments duly followed - one at a time period of 30 seconds(ref 0066). Thats the first experiment in the next video. The next experiment at 60 seconds had to be shut down when the cables became entangled with the carriage during the experiment. The second trial is the second experiment in the following video.
