61. Driving Forces of the Milky Way [Thunderbolts Website]
... , infrared, ultraviolet and x-ray telescopes uncover intriguing images and data about the activity at the center of our home galaxy. It's a region full of mysteries, including the remnants of an unexplained hyper-explosion a few thousand years ago and flares that can brighten the central area by a factor of four in a few days or by a factor of two in forty minutes. From an electric universe point of view, this is the most active expression of the electric power of the Milky Way. This is where currents are focused from the spiral arms down into a tiny donut-shaped plasmoid. From the center of this plasmoid, electric currents spray out from the axis of the galaxy, then return along the spiral arms, inducing magnetic fields and lighting up the stars. The energy stored in the plasmoid is released in prodigious outbursts of high speed particles and radiation, heralded by explosive flares.

62. The Virgo Cluster Circuit [Thunderbolts Website]
... plasma. The electromagnetic forces of a Birkeland current diminish directly with distance from the current (rather than with the square of the distance from a body as gravity does). Therefore, these forces have a much stronger and longer-reaching effect: They act as “cosmic vacuum cleaners”, pulling in and concentrating matter from great distances. This “pinch effect” organizes the plasma into filaments that act as“ power cables”. Because these cables attract each other when far apart but repel each other when close, they tend to spiral around each other. At points of sufficiently strong interaction, the matter in the cables will be stretched into arcs, and a “sump” or bulge will accumulate between them. This generates the familiar form of a spiral galaxy. Hence, galaxies are “loads” on the intergalactic circuits, similar to streetlights on a municipal power grid. Variations in such factors as density, temperature, or composition along the cables trigger the formation of double layers and sheaths. These formations separate the plasma into bubbles or cells that tend ...

63. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 10: CHRONOLOGY [Quantavolution Website]
... between Egypt, Syria and Palestine in the early Minoan period, conventionally dated to about 2500 B. C onwards. A vase found at Byblos has a handle in the form of a bull. The name Byblos may have a connection with one of the names of Dionysus, the Etruscan Fufluns, or Bubluns, meaning the same as Bromios, the noisy one. This would refer to the drums that accompanied his revels, which in turn imitated the thunder which was caused by the lightning, of which Dionysus was a god. Spiral decoration is typical of Minoan art. It is also typical of Neolithic cultures in the Danube area, in Thessaly in the Chalcolithic period, in Thrace, and in the Bronze Age Cyclades and Crete. The meander and spiral pattern were popular in Egypt and Crete in the period when Amenemhet III built his palace or temple, sometimes referred to as a labyrinth, in the Fayum, and a Cretan king built a labyrinth at Knosos. The Egyptian palace has been described as a funerary temple, and both had enough rooms for ...

64. Redshift Anomalies [SIS Internet Digest $]
... 134545 -0800 My, oh my, the Astronomy Picture Of The Day finally did it. They posted (because it's such a spectacular photo) a picture of Stephan's Quintet, a cluster of galaxies that represent one of the most outstanding incidents of redshift anomalies that Halton Arp discusses in Quasars, Redshifts and Controversies. Look at http//antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html Here's the conventional explanation: "Four of the [five galaxies show essentially the same redshift suggesting that they are at the same distance from us. The large bluish spiral below and left of center actually has a smeller redshift than the others, indicating it is much closer. It is probably a foreground object which happens to lie along the line of sight to the more distant galaxies. Of the four distant galaxies, three seem to be colliding, showing serious distortions due to gravitational tides. The fourth is a normal appearing elliptical galaxy." Here's Arp's explanation, including a lot of evidence that was completely ignored in the APOD account: The redshifts of the "low redshift" galaxy 9NGC ...

65. The Big Bang Never Happened [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... 'the evolution of the universe must be explicable in terms of the processes occurring in the universe today'. 'The plasma universe... is formed and controlled by electricity and magnetism, not just gravitation- it is, in fact, incomprehensible without electrical currents and magnetic fields' (p. 41). Alfven's laboratory work on electro-magnetic containment fields for controlled fusion had shown how passing huge (momentary) currents along two parallel conductors resulted in their twisting together in a helix. As the conductors vaporised the resulting plasma formed various spiral shapes reminiscent of galaxies. Subsequent computer simulation of this experiment generated patterns matching almost all observed forms of spiral galaxy, (pp. 47, 233). Lerner suggests that the observation of magnetic and electrical fields and currents within the solar wind strongly suggests that electromagnetism may well have a role between stars and even between galaxies. The next three chapters ('A History of Creation', 'The Rise of Science', and 'The Strange Career of Modern Cosmology'), some 110 pages, are taken up by what seems a ...

66. Something New in the Wind [Thunderbolts Website]
... forces in a thundercloud are far too weak to generate the electric fields that produce lightning. See the commentary on this question at: http://www.holoscience.com/news.php?article=9eq6g3aj If the winds of a thunderstorm can t separate charges, then the trivial breezes of a whirlwind certainly can t! What if the electric field produces the whirlwind? We know the Earth is surrounded and interpenetrated by large and complex electric currents. We know currents in plasma any substance that contains charged particles form filaments that spiral around each other: Another word for “spiral around” is “whirl.” For most of the time we ignore those currents. But being attentive to them could generate the new ideas that enable us to see a new world.

67. Electric Currents Big and Small [Thunderbolts Website]
... decades ago, but he didn t consider its link with a greater galactic circuit. The current "disk" of the Sun is the heliospheric current sheet that flows between the Sun and the outer reaches of our solar system (see image Thunderbolts, Oct 31, 2005). And the axial circuit consists of Birkeland currents flowing along the "open" polar magnetic field lines. Similarly, the galactic disk is the disk of a Faraday motor, caused to rotate by Birkeland currents flowing along the axis and out along the spiral arms. Stars in the spiral arms receive their power from those galactic currents. Galaxies, in turn, are threaded like "Catherine wheels" on intergalactic Birkeland currents. The cosmic circuitry of Birkeland currents can be traced by their magnetic fields. So, far from being electrically sterile, cosmic plasma is awash with electric current filaments. And just like Frazier's plasma ball, we see the same beauty and evidence of currents in astronomical nebulae, glowing hydrogen HII regions, and planetary aurora s. We live in an Electric Universe ...

70. Ear Symbols [Migration of Symbols (Book)] [Books]
... , as stated, from his mother's ear, and at birth was equipped with magic ear-rings. These afforded him protection and gave him power. The belief is not yet extinct, especially among old sailor men and rural folk, that ear-rings strengthen the eyes. The sun and moon were the "eyes,' of the sky-god. In Egypt the goddess Hathor, as Sekhet, was the 'Eye" of Re, the sun god. One of Re's forms was the bull. A Scottish sculptured stone shows a bull with a spiral below the ear (fig 41). It is from Burghead in Morayshire. Fig. 41. Bull on sculptured stone, Burghead, Scotland The belief that the ear had a connexion with birth may have had origin, as suggested, simply because of the air-of Aife murmurings of the shell which are Fig. 41 heard only when it is pressed Bull on sculptured stone, Burghead, against the ear. Polynesian evidence indicates that the human ear of itself suggested by its helix a connexion with the spiral. Ruth H. ...
