He described his position related to this matter in his book titled De l'electrisation localisee et de son application a la pathologie et a la therapeutique (From Localized Electrization and Its Application to Pathology and Therapeutics) in response to criticism he received related to his failure to address the study of pathological anatomy during his clinical studies of glos-so-labial-laryngeal paralysis:
It is known that the above processes include [3]: various mechanisms of electrization of liquid and solid particles of clouds; the processes of generation, existence, accumulation and separation of electric charges in a large-scale cloud region with inhomogeneous local temperature and velocity regimes; processes of formation of electric fields in the fine-dispersed medium of clouds; electric discharge phenomena in thunderclouds and the surrounding air atmosphere, which significantly affect the functioning of the electronics of technical means, the human habitat and its vital activity.
Calculated estimates of the electrization processes of the solid dielectric particles under consideration and the accumulation of a volume electric charge with them in the atmospheric cumulonimbus cloud can be performed for the case of normal atmospheric conditions (air pressure is 1,013 x [10.sup.5] Pa, and its absolute temperature [T.sub.0] is 273.15 K [10]).
The uncertainty in the physics community about the origin of dielectric polarization is reiterated six years after Maxwell's death by Oliver Heaviside, who wrote in the paper in which he coined the term "electrets," that "The physical explanation of electrization [process of electric polarization in dielectrics] is of course a matter of speculation, as it depends not only on the nature of molecules, but also on their relation to the ether" [17].

Besides, an increase in compaction pressure leads to boost of resistance to deformation by clusters of filler particles which have been formed in the course of mixing of components because of distinction in habitus, size, specific weight and the electrophysical parameters causing processes of electrization. The boundary layer , which was created at a stage of cold pressing, doesn't change its structure at the stage of blanks' hot agglomeration in the traditional technological process due to lack of viscous-flow condition of matrix polymer which peculiar to other thermoplastics.
