Mystery of Space

Electricity and magnetism animate the plasma in our universe

Cosmic anomalies or just electrical circuits in action?

Most of us are rather familiar with the concept of an electric switch that can turn a light either on or off in an instant. And in recent years observers have noted that stars, quasars and even those bright discs around the supposed black holes can turn invisible rather quickly and in some cases also turn back on within hours, days or years.

Mainstream astronomers have however expected that some of these changes should require many years, even hundreds of thousands of years, but actual observations have shown that these things can happen in hours. So something is not right with their understanding.

But if our universe is actually electric and stars, quasars, galaxies and plasmoids (not black holes) are connected to each other by Birkeland Currents, then these rapid changes in luminosity can be rather easily explained by all kinds of disruptions in the current flows.

If the current flowing to a celestial object is higher at one time, it glows more than at a time when the current flow is lower. And if the flow is cut off (redirected elsewhere) the object can stop emitting radiation in an instant. Simple as that.

Fermi Bubbles

Cosmic jets are not the only massive anomaly in our universe that defies the gravity only model. There are also gigantic 'light bulbs' that are orthogonal to the spiral galaxies like our very own Milky Way. These are known as Fermi Bubbles.

The bubbles we have are about 30,000 light years tall. So their scale is almost unfathomable. And they emit high energy gamma rays from their outskirts many thousands of light years away from the Milky Way. So how does our affirmedly non-electric universe produce these powerful electro-magnetic phenomena?

Some in the mainstream have proposed that the bubbles, whose visibility is due to gamma rays and also some x-rays, were created after our hypothesized black hole had a giant snack.

But in the Electric Universe the bubbles are a product of a discharging central plasmoid much like the cosmic jets. The gamma rays happen when electrical double layers collapse or explode at the edge of the bubbles.

See this video for more details.

Celestial Objects as Seen by the Ancients

If you think about it, there's something peculiar about ancient obsession with celestial objects like planets. After all, thousands of years ago, people didn't have powerful telescopes. So, it seems unlikely the planets could have been that interesting to look at. Unless what people saw during that time was nothing like we see today.

In ancient art from Egypt, Sumeria and other places, the sun is often depicted in ways that don't seem to make much sense to us. And then there are the stories of dragons from all over the world. And to top it all, there are the weird and sometimes rather eerie-looking 'stickmen' carved on rock surfaces all over the world.

The key to this mystery was found in a lab as Plasma Scientist Anthony Peratt noticed that one type of plasma experiment produced a figure that can be easily caricatured like one very particular stickman.

The similarity is indeed so striking it is unlikely it happened by chance. So it makes sense that thousands of years ago the ancient artists were actually trying to carve what they saw with their own eyes in the sky: a powerful plasma phenomenon like nothing we see today.

And if there was such a thing other things must have been very different as well. And these differences can explain all the things that don't make sense to us these days. The sun might have really looked different. And it might not even have been the same one we see today.

You see, some people, like Dave Talbott and Immanuel Velikovsky, have postulated that Saturn was the original sun in our system but due to a heavenly collision of systems, another star, our current sun, captured the input of the Birkeland Currents that power stars. So Saturn just faded away while our sun started to feed on the currents that previously powered Saturn.

If the ancient depictions are really accurate, Saturn might have looked like a wheel in the past:

The Future of Space Travel in the Electric Universe

If the EU proponents are right there are most likely neither black holes nor wormholes which conveniently serve space travel in sci-fi. But there is something else: plasma filaments which connect stars and galaxies to each other. And they just might make space travel at least a little bit more convenient in the future.

You see, if you look with the right instruments the universe looks something like this:

Stars and galaxies lie within the filaments which carry electrical currents. And at least in theory, when there is power, it can be harnessed somehow. Maybe by the spaceships of the future if we are clever enough.

Our own sun is connected to the surrounding galaxy by the Birkeland Currents which are similar to the currents you can see inside plasma balls:

Therefore, our future space ships might be able to ride the currents to the nearby stars using less energy than the mainstream thinks is possible.

No telling just yet how fast things could be but one day we might find out if we don't squander our opportunities.

The Trouble With Comets

(photo of comet 67p by ESA/Rosetta)

In the mainstream literature comets have been known as 'dirty snowballs' or even 'icy dirtballs'.

The wikipedia version of humanity's understanding of them tells us that the cometary tails are produced by a process of outgassing, which is initiated by the warming effects of our sun when a comet gets close enough.

However in recent years mainstream astronomers have had to admit again and again that they don't really understand how comets work as their predictions have been consistently wrong.

"Every time we look, we find our textbooks were wrong."

Ed Weiler

NASA Science Mission

One mainstream prediction that has been wrong is the assumption that water (H2O) is present in the comets and will be found by the probes like the DeepSpace 1 in 2001.

It was a big surprise at the time that none was found. And later observations have been no better for the mainstream 'dirty snowball' hypothesis.

What has been found however is OH-molecules which are not water even though they can be produced from water if the conditions are right. This has enabled to mainstream to cling to the hope that water, or ice, will actually some day be found also in the comet nuclei. However, there is still a problem with this as the actual observations tell us that there are very few OH-molecules compared to hydrogen-atoms in the cometary neighborhoods.

What is interesting is that OH can also be produced by bombarding silicates with hydrogen, which is the stuff that makes up the major portion of the solar wind, and the Stardust mission found, to the surprise of mainstream, that cometary material contains various silicate-compounds. Therefore, no water is actually needed to explain the presence of OH in the cometary tails.

Still, to this day Wikipedia and much of the mainstream insist that comets consist of ice, dust and small rocky particles.

The Electrical Universe proponents have an alternative version known as the Electric Comet. It assers that it is not the heat from the Sun that provokes the cometary discharges. Rather it is the charged particles which are erupting from the Sun that electrically interact with both the nucleus and the coma of the comet (and produce the observed OH).

Anyway, you can watch a full length documentary on the subject for a more comprehensive take. It also proposes an explanation of how come comets are actually made of so much silicate material which can only be formed in the presence of considerable amount of heat... the outer space certainly doesn't provide the right conditions for making the comets we have been observing.

An Experimental Electric Sun

Science without experiments is not really science. Therefore, some of the key electrical universe proponents have been busy working in a laboratory developing and testing a model of the Electric Sun for several years now. This project is known as The Safire Project. And no doubt it is quite possibly the most exciting development in that field in many years.

The project consists of a setting with an anode and a cathode embedded in an environment in which the technicians can control pressure, voltage, current, gas and time and do all sorts of measurements and of course produce stunning videos of how the appearance of the scene changes when the variables are tuned. It is quite remarkable to see so please consider watching the full presentation from 2019.

The test environment looks like this:

And when they tune the parameters you see stunning results like these (and much more so watch the video!):

The most remarkable thing is that during the experiments something quite unexpected happened and produced heating which apparently can not be explained by our current understanding of physics.

What is also remarkable is that they confirmed using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) & EDAX that new elements are formed during the experiments. If this can be independently verified some new physics is definitely needed. In essence it means that some transmutation of the elements takes place.

You can see the images of the anode before and after the experiment:

Stay tuned for more developments and writing! And once again: watch the video!

Does fusion really power stars?

If you listen to the mainstream, it's settled that solar energy is produced by fusion reactions in the star's core. However, there are several rather serious problems with the fusion model.

Here's a quick list based on Don Scott's presentation:

  • Fusion reactions always produce neutrinos. A lot of the expected neutrinos are missing although some have proposed rather outrageous explanations for this.

  • The observed heat distribution around the sun is not what you would expect based on the fusion model. The temperature on the plasma surface is at some points only 6000 Kelvin while higher up in the heliosphere the temperature rises to around 1-2M Kelvin.

  • Oscillations in the sun's size and brightness. The size of our star varies by at least around 1 kilometer.

  • The solar wind accelerates as it gets farther away from the sun

These problems are better explained by the electric model which postulates that the stars are powered by current flows from their charged plasma environment.

Also, stars may actually be initially formed by a so-called z-pinch effect that can happen along the galactic Birkeland Currents that also continue to power the stars after their formation.

Perhaps the first Electrical Sun model was published by Ralph Juergens in the 70's and the Nobel Prize winning Hannes Alfven also published a somewhat different model in 1986.

Anyway, even in the electric sun model nuclear reactions can still happen but they do happen mainly in the heliosphere and chromosphere and not inside the sun.

On craters and their formation

One little mystery that has bothered many thoughtful people is how come nearly all the craters on the moon and other celestial objects are almost perfectly round. If the craters were produced by meteorite impacts, like you probably have been told, you would expect them to often be elliptical, since it is very rare for a meteor to come down at an orthogonal angle with respect to the surface.

So it makes sense to consider other possibilities for crater formation.

Now consider a common decorative plasma ball. If you haven't paid much attention to them you may not have realized that the visible current flows are always orthogonal to the surface in the center. That's basically how electricity works in these situations. And some people have proposed that similar electrical discharges can create craters as well. In fact, they have even demonstrated that this happens in laboratory settings.

See this video for much more detail:

Impact Craters vs. Electrical Discharge Craters

Now, consider the possibility that astronomical objects may have significantly different charges. Especially comets that come to the inner solar system from farther away. Would it perhaps be possible that whenever such a highly charged object comes close enough to our own moon an electrical discharge happens and produces a crater or even several of them via sequential discharges like happen in a lightning storm? Food for thought...

Intro to the mysteries of the Plasma Universe

Throughout the ages the bright minds of mankind have labored in order to understand the mysteries of outer space. At first it was the comets and the planets in our own solar system that took their attention but with modern telescopes and imaging methods we can begin to understand the whole universe.

But as history have shown, our best understanding has often been wrong. Is this time so different with the mainstream acceptance of such ludicrous ideas like Dark Matter, Dark Energy, Big Bang and the Inflationary theory? Perhaps not.

Largely unknown to the general public, there are alternative explanations that do not require forms of matter and energy that have not been verified by science.

You see, more than 99.9% of our visible universe is made out of plasma which is the fourth form of matter in our reality. In plasma, the electrons are moving outside the atoms. Therefore, plasma produces electrical and magnetic fields and is affected by their presence. Gravity is not the only thing that makes things move in space.

When you read popular cosmology the one thing you know is that there are massive black-holes in the center of galaxies. But the scientists who are familiar with plasma physics have proposed that what are thought to be those mysterious singularities are actually huge plasmoids which can concentrate and unleash massive quantities of energy which in practice in some cases shoot streams of plasma for astronomical distances. Look up cosmic jets like the one below...

And when you look at something burning on earth, you can see similar fleeting structures form that you see in nebulae in space. Fire, and flames in particular, are actually matter in a plasma state and so are the cosmic nebulae.

Moreover, our own sun, like other stars, may not be predominantly powered by fusion inside its core but by electrical currents that run through galaxies; these currents are called Birkeland Currents due to the pioneering work by a Norwegian experimentalist of that name during the early years of the 20th century.

There is of course much more and you can learn many facts and details from the awesome videos produced by the Thunderbolts Project. See the video page.
