If ancient artists recorded the life-like configurations of plasma instabilities, we can be sure that the witnesses would also have told stories about the life-like movements and transformations of the instabilities. And if rock art exhibits identical forms around the world, the stories should do the same. Ancient narratives, passed down from prehistoric times, are called “mythology” ...

He chose the term because plasma acted almost as if it were alive. Its behavior is complex and hard to predict. It forms itself into cells that remain separate from each other. It creates long twisted currents that carry energy from one region to another. It separates the atoms of one element from the atoms of another. At higher energy levels, it creates dozens of specific patterns of shapes and behavior that evolve in predictable ways. Langmuir probably wasn't the first to compare plasma behavior to life. Plasma Physicist Anthony Peratt has presented a paper proposing that ancient eyewitnesses observed high-energy plasma formations in their skies. Peratt has studied plasma instabilities for a quarter of a century. When it was ...

They were reproducing dramatic plasma discharge forms seen in their spectacular sky. At high energy levels, the current within a plasma circuit will develop instabilities that can be studied in the laboratory. The flow of charged particles generates electromagnetic forces that in turn affect the flow of particles. This feedback effect produces plasma behavior that is not linear and is often unexpected. Theoretical predictions must be frequently checked against laboratory observations. The non-linear behavior at low energies, such as the alternating light and dark segments in a gas-discharge tube, becomes even more complex. High energy discharges in plasma laboratories exhibit intricate structures, and these evolve through a ...

... PLASMA MYTHOLOGY – how the gods destroyed the world (This article appeared originally in Dutch in Bres; op de bres voor een bezield bestaan, 224, February/ March 2004, Amsterdam, 34-48. The illustrations have been left out on this page.) drs. Marinus Anthony van der Sluijs (visit also my homepage) November 2003, latest update 29 th. February 2004 INTRODUCTION To the naked eye not much is happening in the nocturnal sky. With the exception of the odd comet or an unusual bright appearance of Mars the firmament can hardly be called a spectacular place. Seeing this it is all the more surprising, to say the least, that the cultures of antiquity took such an extraordinary interest in the heavens. Nor were they just interested, for a deeply rooted dread of the sky pervaded the ancient world. This raises a question: did the night sky five thousand years ago look just like it does today? The question may sound far-fetched, but modern cosmology has found strong indications that as late as Roman times far more was ...

... human experience is primarily one of plants, animals, air, water, and rocks. Oh, yes, there are those sparkles of light in the night sky, but for most of human history they have been practically insignificant. Only in the recent few centuries have we come to understand that those little sparks represent the overwhelming constituent of the universe. It's the world of our experience that's insignificant. And only in the recent few decades have we come to understand that the overwhelming constituent of the universe is composed almost entirely of plasma, a mixture of gas and electrical charges. We think of those charges as "particles" because we know from experience that pieces of rock are "parts" and tiny parts are "particles". When confronted with things smaller, our imaginations and our languages fail, and we merely repeat ourselves. Beneath the mathematical metaphors of atomic theory lies our experience with broken rock. It's not readily imaginable that electrical charges might be something other than specks of that experience. Having been confined to the Earth until recently in our ...
