The above is actually how vortex mechanics work. Applied on real vortex movement, it looks like the image below. The more the magnetic field is growing and applying more pressure the greater the extent of the polarisation and the greater the spatial sphere (of movement):
The image of a donut or torus taken from above is as follows, showing the tonal pressure walls within the magnetic field:
Between those pressure walls there is vortex motion. The number of pressure walls and twin opposing vortices is determining the harmonic nodes, which are making the torus move internally:
Below the second harmonic is drafted, using only 4 pressure walls with the vortices in between them. More about this later.
