Following earlier research aimed at detecting evidence of a connection between selected very powerful tornadoes and the global anisotropy of the physical space representing the foundation of the theory of byuons, allegedly realized by means of a positive feedback between the tornado updraft and the cosmological vector representing the global anisotropy, this article extends the analysis to a much larger database of tornadic events occurring in the continental U.S. in order to detect the fingerprint of the new proposed physical processes on the overall statistics. While the theoretical foundations of the onset and development of tornadoes are well established, some work remains to be done with particular reference to the upper tail of the energy distribution of tornadoes, where the energy developed by a single event can be as huge as 1016 J, or the equivalent of 2 Mton of TNT. In this range, additional mechanisms of energy supply in the process of development of a tornado are proposed and their fingerprint on the overall statistics are looked for. Although further analyses over different geographical areas, especially in the southern hemisphere, would be needed in order to provide a really conclusive proof, convincing evidence accumulates and points to the reality of the new proposed physical processes.
