    Could we coil copper, surround it with a tube of mirrors, then use a laser pointer to flow the current?

    Where do you think the current would come from? The laser? How would a photon induce a current in copper?

    Short answer - no.

    Maybe a natural frequency opposite of coppers natural color frequency would react against the electrons in the copper?

    Copper doesn't have a "natural frequency." If you bombard copper (or anything really) with high enough energy photons you will liberate some electrons. This is called the "photoelectric effect." However this will not induce an overall current in the copper since they will either be reabsorbed by the copper or disappear into space.

    Why not take two pieces of glass and each piece of glass coat with mono layer if silver and pass the lasser beam between the two glass silver coated sheet ( multiinternal reflection ) and see if some current is generated , since in an reflection you will have an off and on which will be an occilator.

    From the title it sounds like some kind of perpetual self powering machine.

    Looks to me like you just mixed together a bunch of scientific sounding words, hoping they would form a coherent thought. Sorry, but they don't.

    Self powered? Perpetual?

    um... are you all aware glass reflects only the visible spectrum of light? And even that shines through a bit...

    Creating electric current with electromagnetic energy..... fancy words.

    I don't have materials... Not in a school that does either.

    wrong.
    any length of wire will have a distributed capacitance, the length of wire the inductance.
    take it from there.

    Even your body has a natural frequency which vibrates consciousness from a collective equilibrium comprised of .025% ( or a near statistically insignificant amount) to allow you to function for a short time above gods command.- Or live.

    But everything contains the same ratio at some point (astronomical or subatomic) In which the amount it contains this ratio determines its overall form... Or elemental value

    Copper doesn't have a natural frequency. If you disagree, state what you believe copper's natural frequency to be.

    If you explore that further you'll realize that the impedance in a wire just relates to its size and shape, and that impedance is completely different than any natural frequency alluded to in the OP from the spectrum that gives copper its color.

    The presence of light will not affect any current already present nor will it generate a current.

    in my example it would depend on the length of copper and its proximity to other conductive surfaces.
    with very sort pieces in open air this frequency will be very high.

    as to "natural frequency" i would guess that would depend on the temperature of the copper.

    i realized that after i posted.

    And if you string it onto a guitar and strum it, it will also have a natural vibration frequency. But do you really think the OP knows enough to have actually been talking about one of those "natural frequencies"? I don't.

    Ignorance of a fact is no excuse. Between any two objects there exists a natural harmonic. Otherwise they would not exist consecutively. Objects would appear and disappear if there were no harmony.

    Please give an example.

    What does that mean?

    Why?
