two bodies that are positive will repel one another, no matter what the magnitude of that charge is
Is a positive low voltage of electricity attracted to a positive high voltage electricity?
two bodies that are positive will repel one another, no matter what the magnitude of that charge is. Similarly two bodies that are negative will repel one another, no matter what the magnitude of the charge is.

I expect that the anode (which has a slight shortage of electrons) will be strongly attracted to the screen (which has a more severe shortage of electrons). This is because all of the remaining electrons in the anode (+) will be attracted towards the screen (+++). (..but I'm happy to be proven wrong on this!)
The sun is very very close to neutral. It has roughly the same number of electrons as it has protons. I say roughly because, with a mass of 2x1030 kg, the sun has approximately 1.2x1057 of each. So there is a very small chance that it is always perfectly matched, especially given the extreme temperatures. There could be a difference of a few million electrons or protons without really effecting anything, the sun is effectively neutral. If it contained only positive particles it would never have come together in the first place because the repulsion would be far stronger than the gravitational attraction.What gave you the impression that it is positive?
there is nothing neutral about anything that generates heat.
Quote from: Theboxthere is nothing neutral about anything that generates heat.A fire generates heat, but is electrically neutralA firefly generates light, but is electrically neutralA nuclear reactor generates heat, but is electrically neutral.A meteor crashing into Earth's atmosphere generates heat, but is electrically neutralWater freezing releases heat, but is electrically neutral Earth's core releases heat, but is electrically neutralA diesel engine generates heat, but is electrically neutralEven a wire which is generating heat due to an electric current flowing through it is almost exactly electrically neutral: If you turn off the electricity supply, there is almost no voltage left in the wire. So production of heat (conversion of one form of energy into another form of energy) does not require an electric charge.Some devices like the electric kettle use the flow of charge to generate heat (while keeping the total charge neutral).Are you perhaps thinking of some other measure like Power or Temperature which changes in a positive direction when something is producing heat?
