I have put a bit of commentary enumerating my confusions in parentheses
I read in Black Holes and Time Warps (Kip Thorne), that quasars can generate their jets from four different processes. These all involved the accretion disk, but there was one which doesn't make quite as much sense. It was called the Blandford-Znajek process, and it involved magnetic field lines carrying current.
The process was visualized in two ways. A black hole, with magnetic field lines, is spinning. In the first visualisation (viewpoint actually), the magnetic field lines 'spin' along with the black hole, and nearby plasma is anchored onto the field lines by electrical forces (where did the electrical fields come from?). The plasma can slide along the field lines but not across them (why?). Since the field lines are spinning, centrifugal forces will fling them up and down the field lines, forming jets.
The other viewpoint is this, and it makes even less sense (to me that is, I haven't had a formal education in GR): The magnetic fields and the swirl of space generate a voltage difference across the field lines (Why? How?). The voltage carries current across the magnetic field lines (why are the field lines behaving like wires?). This current travels across plasma, which accelerates it, creating the jets.
Now the main thing that doesn't make sense, is that magnetic field lines are behaving like wires. Why would they? I suspect the answer lies hidden somewhere in the equivalence of EM waves in different frames, but I can't think up any convincing argument from that side.
If the answer involves GR equations, you don't need to solve it here (wouldn't make sense to me), but if you have to, just refer to the equation and what you did to it, along with the final result. Thanks!
