    This energy is electrical energy or static energy, but it is transferred indirectly to the light. The static runs into the boys’ arm and is then deposited into the light to turn it on. There it travels through the other boy, back into the light, and back through the first boy to the energy source to create a never ending cycle until the main link between the energy source and light is gone.
