81. Ladder to Heaven [Journals] [Aeon]
... in form. At the same time, a cloud of ethereal material became spread out between Mars and Earth, thereby giving rise to the appearance of a fiery pillar spanning the heavens. The luminous pillar associated with the polar configuration was a dynamic phenomenon, alternately presenting evolving phases or forms, an apparent signature of a plasma-generated structure, where plasmas are defined as "quasi-neutral assemblies of charged particles."  Familiar examples of plasma include the solar wind, lightning, and auroras, the latter produced when the solar plasma filters through Earth's atmosphere, interacting with, and exciting, the molecules in Earth's upper atmosphere.  While, during one particularly memorable phase ...
82. Thundergods and Thunderbolts [Journals] [Aeon]
... bring about the thunderstorm and its attendant visual and auditory phenomena. It is our opinion that such views are so wide off the mark as to be virtually worthless as a basis for understanding ancient myth and religion. In what follows we hope to offer a new interpretation of the thundergod as a visible planetary power. Aided by new discoveries in plasma physics, particularly as elucidated and reconstructed by Wallace Thornhill and Anthony Peratt, the curious mythology associated with the omnipresent thundergod suddenly begins to unravel, revealing a fascinating tale of interplanetary thunderbolts and apocalyptic cataclysm. It would be impossible to do justice to the vast body of traditions surrounding the thundergod and his weapon in an article-format, and thus ...
83. Thoth Vol VI, No 2: March 15, 2002 [Journals] [Thoth]
... the Cambridge, U.K ., Conference of the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies* I presented a paper about the planet Venus that dealt with reports of lightning. I said "The principal difficulty in understanding the origin of lightning is likely to be the assumption that the Earth and Venus are closed electrical systems with no input from the solar plasma environment via the magnetosphere." There has been one crucial name missing from the earlier list of Nobel Prize winners. Kristian Olaf Bernhard Birkeland (1867-1917) was the founder of experimental astrophysics. Note the crucial adjective "experimental" as distinct from modern theoretical astrophysics. He studied under Poincaré and Hertz and was a professor at Oslo University ...
84. Tethered Satellite Debacle [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... . 15. June 7, 1997 Tethered Satellite Debacle Wal Thornhill (firstname.lastname@example.org) I mentioned this at the World Conference in January as a good example of the naive view that scientists have of the Earth's environment. The current dogma is that the Earth's magnetosphere is created by the Earth's intrinsic magnetic field and traps plasma to form a buffer against the buffeting of the solar wind. However, I believe that Ralph Juergens, Earl Milton and others are correct when they attribute electric charge to the planets and the Sun. With this single, simple assumption, backed up by myriad observations, the Earth's magnetosphere is plainly a PLASMASPHERE, which is formed to ...
85. Electric Universe Predictions for Space Probe [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... attempt will be made to return a sample to Earth in 2010. Wal Thornhill replies: I predict that unless NASA has begun to take notice of The Electric Universe before they perform this comet caper, they will be in for some nasty surprises. To begin with, it will be an interesting exercise to orbit an object that is firing plasma beams and modifying its apparent gravity in the process. Any object that tries to land on it will need lightning arrestors fitted to equalize the voltage differences before touchdown. But a more serious problem will occur after landing. Any metal object protruding from the surface of the comet will become a prime candidate for the focus of one of the ...

... electrostatic field. The electrophonic bursters are associated with the catastrophic disruption of large meteoroids in the Earth's atmosphere. Astronomy and Astrophysics, v.345, p.L27-L31 (05/1999), "A space charge model for electrophonic bursters" by Martin Beech, Luigi Foschini. Birkland current patterns We developed unique global models of the near-earth plasma environment, including the ionosphere, the plasmasphere, and the polar wind. The localized structure can be created by structured magnetospheric inputs (i .e ., structured plasma convection, particle precipitation or Birkland current patterns). Final Technical Report, 1 Jul 1980 - 30 Sep. 1990 Utah State Univ., Logan. Center for ...
87. Thoth Vol III, No. 9: June 15, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... [Seeing Red, p. 105]. Arp's discoveries are the most important in astronomy since the invention of the telescope. He has developed a map of the visible universe that makes good sense and shows once again the penchant for Nature to repeat patterns. This is a feature also of the Electric Universe model, where electrical discharges in plasma exhibit an organizing principle that shapes galaxies. When combined with the plasma focus phenomenon we have an explanation for active galactic nuclei and the birth of quasars. Quantised galactic and stellar redshift is simply explained by Sansbury's new classical physics model of gravity as a near instantaneous electrostatic dipolar force. In fact, it would have been embarrassing if quantum ...
88. Thoth Vol V, No 12: November 30, 2001 [Journals] [Thoth]
... Gupta is concerned with "widespread misappropriation of the language of mathematics in the social and biological sciences", but in the 21st Century, his accusation applies as well to the physical sciences, including astronomy. By ignoring- first from ignorance, then in defense of an outmoded electrically neutral model- the fact that the universe is 99% plasma, astronomy has misappropriated the language of math to explain galactic dynamics, star and planet formation. Most of the math of astronomy is based entirely on gravitation theory, at the expense of understanding plasma interactions. Change is coming fast. Plasma cosmology is now accepted as a discipline in physics. Mainstream astronomers have moved through "electricity can't ...
89. Non-velocity Redshifts [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... to email@example.com with a message, "Requesting subscription to THOTH". Non-velocity Redshifts Thoth Vol IV, No. 14 Sep 30, 2000 Mel's question for Anthony Peratt at the September Seminar, "Our Violent Solar System" was the one all of us were yearning to ask. "Can you get a redshift from plasma?" Anthony answered by displaying the following article on his Web Pages: http://public.lanl.gov/alp/plasma/redshifts.html Redshifts: The Wolf Effect and Gravitational Redshifts Spectral lines can be redshifted toward longer wavelengths or blueshifted toward shorter ones. The Doppler effect explains how these shifts occur because of ...
90. NASA on Galileo's current mission [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1999:1 (Apr 1999) Home | Issue Contents NASA on Galileo's current mission By Wal Thornhill VOL II, No. 19. Nov 30, 1998 NASA on Galileo's current mission: "The plasma sheet, which lies along Jupiter's magnetic equator, is an area that exhibits a high concentration of plasma, or ionized gases. This allows relatively strong electrical currents to flow, and creates dynamic interactions between the plasma and Jupiter's magnetic field." Wal Thornhill comments: Pay particular note to the last sentence where the usual suspect, the planet's magnetic field, is held responsible for any electrical effects and we can therefore ignore the possibility that Jupiter ...
