171. Cluster Collisions [Thunderbolts Website]
... 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 study shows a very hot temperature (70 million degrees) at the interface between the two clusters. Why should that be? Astronomers consider plasma to be an ionized gas that behaves according to the same laws that a neutral gas follows, with some modification for magnetic effects. Because they cannot directly measure the properties of extragalactic space, they have developed mathematical models based on the behavior of neutral gases. Hannes Alfvén, the father of plasma cosmology, took a different approach. In the opening to his monograph, Cosmic Plasma, he describes how the pure theory approach lost touch with reality. Rather than theorize about how plasma is supposed to act, he studied how ...

The usual distinction between dust devils and tornadoes is blurred by the size of monstrous whirlwinds on the planet Mars. Electric discharge offers the simplest and most direct explanation for the astonishing power of the Martian dust columns. Meteorologists believe that the atmospheric forces generating dust devils and tornadoes have little in common despite their similar appearance. Tornadoes do not occur in dry clear air, while dust devils do. The meteorological conditions in which the two arise are easily distinguished. But the “Electric Universe” allows for a unified perspective on both phenomena, with direct implications for our understanding of the Mt. Everest-sized dust devils on Mars. The most telling clue comes from the fact that both dust devils and tornadoes exhibit strong electric fields. For the electrical theorists both ...

The latest x-ray observations encourage still another way to understand it. A theory doesn ’ t just explain what you see. It also tells you what to look for and how to see it. This interdependency of fact and theory, of perception and conception, enables human beings to adapt their limited understandings to changing experiences. Because experiences often don ’ t change in a straightforward and cumulative way, theory-making extends beyond the currently accepted explanations to ask “What else could it be?” One recent changing experience is this Chandra x-ray image of Tycho ’ s Star. In 1572, Tycho Brahe, the famous Danish astronomer ...
174. Stars in an Electric Universe [Aeon Journal $]
... the forces of magnetism and gravity are derived directly from it. [6 Electrons are postulated to have internal structure. Gravity is then due to a tiny electrostatic dipolar effect in nucleons and electrons. It arises in bulk matter where the nuclear electrostatic dipoles align to form the gravitational field. The only other requirement is that the electrostatic force between nucleons is transmitted at near infinite speed. The complete model is an interdisciplinary, holistic construct built upon the work of a number of scholars over the last century in the fields of classical and plasma physics, astronomy, electrical engineering, biochemistry and comparative mythology. Some critics have raised the question: "How can a star be formed in the Electric Universe?"-- implying that the electrostatic model of gravity denies the very existence of the phenomenon of gravity. The electrostatic model does not deny the existence of gravity. Instead, unlike Einstein's unreal four-dimensional model, it offers a real three-dimensional model of gravity based on electrostatics. Like all superior new models, as well as explaining the basic phenomenon of gravity, it ...

... volcano. Imagine a pyroclastic flow erupting from the volcano, surging into the valley, and swirling up the opposite mountainside. Focus your attention on the concept "pyroclastic flow." It's composed of a network of ideas about hot gasses and steam, pulverized and molten rock, magma pressure and gravity, fracturing and fluidization. If you're a vulcanologist, you may recall lab experiments with fracturing basalt under great pressure. If you're a layman, you may visualize an illustration of magma seeping into crevasses. Virtually no one will think of plasma and electricity. Expert and layman alike will find nonsensical the proposal that a pyroclastic flow could be an electrical discharge within the earth that dissociates rock into ions and dust, creating a plasma that's heated, suspended within a double layer, and jetted across the valley by electrical forces. (Thanks to Harold Tresman for getting ME to think of it.) After all, a pyroclastic flow is already explained by mechanical theories. Adding on electricity only complicates things, and the principle of Ockham's Razor dictates that unnecessary assumptions be cut ...

... ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** STARS: NUCLEAR VERSUS ELECTRIC: PART II by Don Scott The Electric Sun Hypothesis Juergens, Milton, Thornhill (and others) propose an electrical mechanism for the energy release of the Sun. The major properties of this Electric Sun model are as follows: 1) Most of the space within our galaxy is occupied by plasma (rarefied ionized gas) containing electrons (negative charges) and ionized atoms (positive charges). Every point in the plasma has a measurable (electric) potential energy (or voltage). 2) The Sun is at a more positive electrical potential (voltage) than is the space plasma surrounding it- probably in the order of 10 billion volts. 3) The Sun is powered, not from within itself, but from outside, by the electric (Birkeland) currents that flow in our arm of our galaxy ...

... over the next hill. The track record of a theory only tells you where it's been. Verification is not reliability. No amount of confirmation will provide assurance that a different idea with a different viewpoint on the facts won't explain things better. As long as you don't look over the fence, everything will seem familiar. Keep in mind the conceptual fence of science pretty much encloses only our experience on the surface of the Earth for the last 300 years. Every theory that's currently fashionable in every science has been devised without taking plasma into account. This dog bites twice. First, plasma doesn't behave the way physicists expect from standard theory. Second, 99% of the universe is composed of plasma. We should therefore expect currently accepted theories to explain no more than 1% of the phenomena in the universe. I urge you not to be timid in your skepticism of currently accepted theories. I urge you not to be reluctant to reject currently accepted theories. Be courageous in your speculations and radical in your innovations. We face a new and unexplored ...
178. The IEEE, Plasma Cosmology and Extreme Ball Lightning [Thunderbolts Website]
... home updates news and views picture of the day resources team a role for you contact us news The IEEE, Plasma Cosmology and Extreme Ball Lightning Wallace Thornhill, Holoscience.com This is a report on a few aspects of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) International Conference on Plasma Science (ICOPS 2006), held in Michigan earlier this month. The IEEE is the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology, with more than 365,000 members. The labours of these large numbers of professionals have driven technological progress in the twentieth century. Their success has often been equated with scientific progress, which has allowed the stagnation in the hard sciences to be overlooked. It is engineers who have made space exploration possible, and their precision probes and navigation skills have returned data that routinely surprises space scientists. After each surprise the scientists scuttle back to their drawing boards but they only touch-up the old picture. Perhaps it is time for engineers to bring new concepts to the drawing board. Members of the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society began ...
179. Archetypes Showing The Presence of Anomalous Electromagnetic Activity [SIS C&C Review $]
... Horus, The Velikovskian and SIS C&C Workshop and C&C Review. He has presented and written for conferences on Parapsychology and Alternate Consciousness at Colorado State University and teaches courses on the practical usage of psychic abilities. Summary There is evidence that until quite recently, plasmic structures of varying lengths of stability or permanence were actually observed in the sky above Earth. So-called 'comets' observed and recorded in late Renaissance art were comparatively ephemeral and for the most part were manifestations of excess plasmic activity. The more permanent structures of plasma, mostly in the form of conglomerates of opposing magnetic fields, reflect both ancient art and myth. This presentation is intended as an introduction to the study of structures like these and to point out the possibility of a prior environment within the Solar System, unlike the one we experience today. My paper 'Snapshots of The Gods' [1 suggested that certain forms recorded in art and myth actually were seen in the sky. The appearance of these forms implies unusual amounts of electromagnetic forces near the earth. This presentation focusses on ...

... to include the entire electromagnetic spectrum, from radio waves to gamma rays. It extended our sense of touch to the planets and asteroids and comets, even to the Sun. We stuck the fingers of our probes into the dark and empty spaces. Our sensory sampling of the universe was liberated from the limitations of our biological niche on the surface of a wet and rocky planet. We could sniff the solar wind, taste the rocks on Mars, and see the x-rays from the comets. We discovered the universe is bursting with plasma, a state of matter almost unknown to our previous geocentric and anthropocentric condition. Plasma is often mistaken for a hot gas, but it doesn't behave as familiar gasses do. Instead of merely expanding when heated, it pinches into filaments and cells and jets and donuts. It generates magnetic fields and microwave noise and x-ray bursts. It accelerates particles to relativistic velocities and polarizes radiation. It conducts electric currents and transmits power across large distances. It gathers matter from the surrounding space and separates it into shells of like composition. ...
