To each his own theory.  Yours sounds as plausible as the rest.

Your statement below the excerpt from Jim, (below) is NOT true. It is not a
matter of bleeding off the entire charge field, it is only a matter of
changing the distribution of the charge. Changing the contour of the
potential field to make another place the weakest path is all you need.
I know many "experts" put the idea of bleeding off charge down, but I have
seen professionals in related fields give arguments just as well documented
on the other side.
Quit assuming the whole energy packet has to be controlled, and think about
using finesse, instead.
