291. Thoth Vol VII, No 5: Jul 31, 2003 [Journals] [Thoth]
... the nuclear furnace is supposed to take hundreds of thousands of years to "leak out" to the surface. The electric star model suggests a simpler explanation of solar neutrino observations. The Sun produces all of the neutrino flavors on the surface in more complex nuclear reactions than mere heat and pressure allows. The nuclear reactions are ignited by the plasma pinch effect in the gigantic electrical discharges that cover the star and produce starlight. Ironically, it is the same phenomenon as that employed in some laboratories attempting to mimic the Sun's energy production! In this model, the connection between neutrino count, sunspot number and solar wind is expected, because the driver for them all is the same ...
292. Celestial fireworks [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... observed phenomena really were in a physical sense remains to be clarified. Only if the mythical model could be vindicated or corroborated by a physical model, we might begin to speak of a serious challenge to the existing views on astronomy and theology. Elsewhere we will discuss various scenarios that might account for the visual reconstruction we have offered here. Plasma physics and electromagnetic forces will turn out to play a crucial role in this respect. The model is a model and not the truth per se. It intends to accommodate as much information as is at our disposal, to ignore no reliable data, and to conform with common principles of reasoning and theorising. The idea of an actual ...
293. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... . Although comets could have alerted Babylonian astronomers to start a journey, the star' was not a comet. .. .and father of volcanoes The Evening Sun 12.2 .92 The volcanic eruptions recorded on Jupiter's moon Io by the Voyager space probes have now subsided, as inferred from the large decline in the size of the plasma torus, recorded by Ulysses. The torus is formed of particles from the volcanoes which are ionized in Jupiter's fierce radiation belts. At the same time Jupiter's magnetosphere has doubled in size and is less organised than it was 13 years ago.

294. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the space between galaxies is pervaded by magnetic fields of unforeseen power and unknown origin'. They are one of the great shaping forces of the universe' but explaining them is a daunting task. Young stars have powerful jets of material flung outward by sweeping magnetic fields, forming giant lobes on either side, similar to the lobes of hot plasma seen near active galaxies such as quasars, yet this presents problems for current cosmology because gravity should be counteracting the outward flow. An electric universe would solve most of their problems. Magnetic Sun New Scientist 1.7 .00, p. 16, 5.8 .00, pp. 36-39, Washington Post 11.10 ...
295. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... this was not uncommon in many other traditions, with fiery spirals, serpents of fire etc. Zysman's thesis is, briefly, following Velikovsky, that as Earth passed through meteoric debris there were great electrical effects, with the discharge of ionised gases and the flow of electrons and protons into Earth through the poles. Discharges of ionised gases or plasmas are seen today in the form of ball lightning, which is treated as an anomalous phenomenon by orthodox science. In ancient traditions there are many descriptions of gods hurling what appear to be balls of fire at their opponents; this could have been ball lightning on a cosmic scale, a subject which Velikovsky discussed. Zysman, however, ...
296. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... evidence described in Monitor (pp. 28-9) of the same issue is quite remarkable in terms of modern astronomy. A cloud of electrified gas circles Saturn (and another circles Jupiter) in which temperatures of 60 to 1000 million degrees F have been recorded. But it is important to stress two points: one is that this doughnut-shaped gas plasma cloud is extremely tenuous, the other is that it circles Saturn out in the regions of two icy moons Dione and Rhea. This "cloud" can therefore hardly be described as a part of Saturn's upper atmosphere: indeed there is a gaping void between it and Saturn's upper atmosphere. I understand Mr Sieff postulates the generation of heavier ...

... swath of tapering light. It was only during the break-up of the Saturnian configuration that this elongated vortex took on its monstrous serpentine form.  Did it "visibly reach Mars?" Bar-Ron asks next. Various explanations concerning the physics of this Axis have been supplied.  Thornhill himself has interpreted it as a sustained plasma discharge in the form of Birkeland current.  In my opinion, if this is correct, not only would it have visibly reached Mars, it would have physically reached all the way to Saturn. Bar-Ron claims that the name Adam "is connected to adom (red) only so far as the word for soil and ...
298. The Paleo-Saturnian System [Journals] [Aeon]
... as the Polar Column or Axis Mundi, could not have been a physical uplift of land. In the paper I have just mentioned, I offer two separate options as indicative of what this Axis could have been: (1 ) a Rankine vortex complete with bolus flow as per Frederic Jueneman, and/or (2 ) a sustained plasma discharge in the form of Birkeland current as per Wallace Thornhill.  Even so, an actual lithospheric bulge would have been raised by Saturn's proximity, and this would have been aided by the added adjacency of Venus and Mars in the linear configuration. And, to be sure, the remnant of such a bulge remains to ...

... space/9805/27/sun.quakes/ http://soi.stanford.edu/press/ssu05-98/ and the surprise at the depth to which it reaches from the corona, of course in the electric Sun model the photosphere is not the "surface" of the Sun but merely one level in the extremely complex plasma phenomena associated with an anode discharge in space. The shock is not purely mechanical and [is not] due to an "electromagnetic explosion" high in the corona. Like the newly discovered phenomena associated with Earthly lightning that extend from ground level into space, we are seeing in the Sun's corona merely the topmost level of a phenomenon ...
