But plasma science suggests a new interpretation, one that could place serpent images as a whole in an entirely new light. The principal god of the Aztec was Quetzalcoatl, one of whose best known aspects was that of the 'feathered serpent'. The impression shown here is on display in the anthropological museum of Villahermosa in Tabasco, Mexico. The image is well known, but the oddness of a snake covered in feathers remains unexplained; needless to say, snakes have a scaly skin and the closest approximation to feathered reptilians are palaeontological findings of bird-like dinosaurs that have nothing to do with mythology. The mystery is deepened by the fact that striking parallels ...

In our Picture of the Day for March 25, we compared photographs of small blue-gray spherules on Mars to the results of laboratory experiments by plasma physicist C J. Ransom. For his replication of these Martian “blueberries”, Ransom used a bed of hematite, a primary constituent of some Martian soils. By blasting the material with an electric arc, he produced an array of small blue-gray spherules and fused globules virtually identical in appearance to those seen on the surface of Mars. Experiments of this sort will prove invaluable to our understanding of planetary evolution and geology. An electric arc is ...

The paradigm has shifted. [Or has it? Astrologers still use Ptolemy's geocentric star charts to cast horoscopes and foretell the future. If success is measured by the dollars they earn, then some are more successful than the astronomers who know where the planets orbit.But what did Copernicus' contemporaries think about the paradigm shift that was in progress around them? Owen Gingerich, professor of the history of astronomy at Harvard, spent 30 years researching hundreds of original copies of Copernicus' book, De Revolutionibus. He was looking for the notes their owners had scribbled in the margins. Many of these notes indicated ...

Peratt home pic of the day archive subject index abstract archive Links: Holoscience Electric Cosmos The Universe Plasma Cosmology Society for Interdisciplinary Studies educational resources Aeon Journal Sep 24, 2004 What is the Electric Universe? The "Electric Universe" is a hypothesis, a new way of interpreting scientific data in the light of new knowledge about plasma and electricity. In this interpretation, gravity plays a secondary role behind the far more powerful electric force, and electrified plasma in the laboratory provides a model for comprehending newly-discovered phenomena in space. As laboratory plasma "pinches" into filaments, sheets, and cells, or isolates charged bodies from their electrical environment, it provides vital clues. In plasma, electric currents will sort material into shells of like elements, or generate discharge configurations ...

Even the cause of sunspots remains elusive, and the more detailed pictures only seem to push the answers farther down the path. “Exactly what happens and why these kind of structures are formed, we don't know“ Dan Kiselman, Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, Stockholm. In the extreme close-up photograph of a sunspot above, we see the rope-like filaments of the penumbra, or margins of the sunspot. For many years solar physicists have claimed that these filaments were convection cells, typical of heated gases. But the higher-resolution details shown here, including the twin bridges across the sunspot, do not support traditional theory. All of the structure shown is consistent with the principle of anode tufting, a plasma ...

The long observation enabled scientists to study the X-ray behavior of young Sun-like stars with ages between 1 and 10 million years. They discovered that these young stars produce violent X-ray outbursts, or flares, that are much more frequent and energetic than anything seen today from our 4.6 billion-year-old Sun.” Although they have no satisfactory explanation for the occurrence of x-rays in young stars, gravity-only theories propose that these flares may create turbulence in the circumstellar disks of gas and dust from which planets are thought to form. From ...

127. Cometary Knots [Thunderbolts Website]
... comets. From an Electric Universe point of view, the resemblance may be more than visual. As long ago as the 1940ıs, an electrical researcher, Dr. Charles Bruce of England, identified planetary nebulae as stellar electric discharge phenomena. Although the heads, or comas, of these "comets" are twice the size of our solar system and much dustier than our comets, their electrodynamics is essentially the same. The coma of a solar system comet is generated by the difference in electrical potential between the nucleus and the surrounding plasma. A charged body placed in plasma forms a cocoon around itself, called a Langmuir sheath or plasma sheath. The cocoon isolates the charge on the body from the surrounding plasma. At the sheath boundary, two layers of charge, called a ¦" double layer," take most of the electrical stress. If the electrical stress is high enough the plasma sheath may glow. The changing electrical stress on a comet is due to its highly elliptical orbit. The Sun has a weak radial electrical field. A comet spends ...

In the Big Bang universe, where everything has been exploding apart for 13 billion years, it ’ s amazing how many things are bumping into each other. Astronomers have only one force to work with — gravity — which works by attraction. So whenever an energetic event is found, like the high temperature in the above galaxy clusters, it must have been caused by a gravity-driven collision. The researcher quoted in the BBC report of this finding was puzzled. This was the first time the clusters were studied in x-ray wavelengths. Previous studies in visible light seemed to show two serene, undisturbed galaxy clusters. Yet the x-ray ...

Our senses are adapted to wind and water and stone. When we try to understand the rest of the universe, we naturally relate our observations to what we already know about gasses and liquids and solids. Our theories of gasses and liquids and solids have enabled us to build machines that extend our senses: We can "see" x-rays; we can "taste" voltage differences; we can 'smell' elements; we can 'touch' the interior of the Earth; and we can 'hear' the radio whisperings of the planets. We can propel our machines into space, to sniff the solar wind, to taste the Martian rocks, and to peer beneath the veil of Titan's ...
