RE: If the signal goes in both caps they must divide.

I think we're getting deep into theory here, and I have no training in this area, but my conception is that ALL of the signal goes through both capacitors, since the two capacitors are connected at both ends. True, in the real world, there will inevitably be tiny differences between any two of even the most closely matched capacitors; in my thesis the signal that emerges contains the average of the deviations from ideal manifest in each capacitor if taken separately. So, the same "problem" of paralleling capacitors still applies, whether you think of it my way or your way. Of course, there probably is a "right way", too.

In your thesis, what would make the signal divide? (I ask this for fun only, not because I know for sure.) Here's a thought experiment: If the signal were to divide, what happens to the voltage and current that characterize it?
