Energy increases the vibrations of the medium absorbing it. Energy, whatever its form, when detected by the appropriate sensor, can be converted into a signal composed of moving electric charges. We found, amazingly, that this signal is composed, somehow, of a continuum of sinusoidal frequencies called a Harmonic Spectrum (H/S). Subsequently numerous signal generating experiments, utilizing mechanical, acoustic, pneumatic, thermal, magnetic, hydraulic, photonic devices and batteries as energy sources, were conducted to explore harmonics generation. Ultimately the aim of this research was to determine, in these cases, the fundamental origin of harmonics generation. This research paper is preliminarily an experimental investigation into the nature of harmonic generation. The empirical data provided was gathered from experimental results and was used to develop a theoretical model to explain how energy is transformed into a H/S. Thus we find that conduction electrons, through the ongoing intricate interplay of processes involving acceleration, constructive/destructive interference (superposition), and Sympathetic Resonance (S/R), are intimately involved in the generation of harmonics. This combination of factors seems to be a principal means by which harmonics are generated, but these factors should not be thought applicable only to electronic circuits.
