Ah ha Jon!
Maybe you have discovered the key to why Beverages work so well. It
could be possible that they capture and assimilate antimatter. The
vanishing core could be caused by antimatter disambiguation which could
result in hyper evisceration of the ferrite core material without
enough durational heat to damage the wire.
If you are able to trap and collect some antimatter particles be sure
to make arrangement for adequate security as antimatter is said to be
the most costly substance in existence at an estimated cost of $62.5
Trillion dollars per gram! In fact NASA is considering collection of
antimatter in future deep space probes because the amount in existence
is so rare but in demand.
I don't know what a jar of the tiny pesky Steinlaus will bring, not
much, but their price could go up because I understand with widespread
urban extermination efforts they are considered for elevation to the
endangered species list in the U.S.
I hope this unravels the mystery of the vanishing toroid.
