Sunspots and Human Behavior

Beyond the boundaries of established science an avalanche of exotic ideas compete for our attention. Experts tell us that these ideas should not be permitted to take up the time of working scientists, and for the most part they are surely correct. But what about the gems in the rubble pile? By what ground-rules might we bring extraordinary new possibilities to light?

I guess we can keep a running commentary on this...

CNN -- Unrest has spread across the Middle East and North Africa. Here's a look at what has happened -- and what is happening -- in various countries:

And see if it does coincide with all of this;
Chart 101: Sunspot Cycles & Human History

Sunspot cycles chart

A. L. Tchijevsky, a Russian professor of Astronomy and Biological Physics, noticed during World War I that particularly severe battles followed solar flares. Since the sunspots were in a peak period during 1916-17, no doubt the war and its various battles were heavily stimulated by the energies which are boiling off the Sun. Intrigued by the connection of human behavior to solar physics, Tchijevsky constructed an “Index of Mass Human Excitability”. He compiled the histories of 72 countries from 500 BC to 1922 AD to provide a strong database to articulate his correlations. After rating the most significant events, Tchijevsky found that fully 80% of the most significant human events, mostly related to war and violence, occurred during the 5 years or so of maximum sunspot activity. Tchijevsky went on to observe that the 1917 Russian Revolution occurred during the height of Sunspot Cycle. Unfortunately, this was one of science’s most costly observations, it earned Tchijevsky almost 30 years in Soviet prisons because his theory challenged “Marxist dialectics”.

The “solar” connection to terrestrial events has been studied ever since then, but most of the focus has been on the sun itself or on the impact of the cycle on the climate, weather, agriculture, commodity markets, and other non-human phenomenon. Awareness of the human impact, which is far more significant than the well known impact of the Full Moon, has remained highly retarded. Modern humans, unlike the ancient cultures of Egypt, Sumer, Bhararti, Maya, and China, are highly reluctant to admit that their collective behavior is influenced strongly by the Sun. They prefer to believe that reason rules their societies.

Historical Events During Sunspot Cycle Heights (1750-2000) ... l#Evidence

In the mid-1980s, writing in two small radical publications, I predicted the dissolution of the Soviet Union and freedom for eastern Europe for the exact month that it did in fact happen. I did not predict it specifically for November of 1989. I predicted it for the height of the next eleven year sunspot cycle. The height occurred in November of 1989. And, as this article argues, this was no coincidence. For sunspots give off solar flares that increase negative ionization on earth–and increased negative ionization during sunspot maximum periods increases human excitablity and activity.

Scientists have studied and quantified sunspots since the 1750s. They have noted that sunspot cycles will vary in length from 9 to 13 years and in number of sunspots, from half-a-dozen during minimum years to many hundreds during maximum years. Many scientists and analysts have admitted or claimed there is some impact on electrical grids, climate, weather, agriculture and commodity markets, economic cycles, etc. But few admit that human activity could be influenced by something as seemingly irrational — and uncontrollable — as sunspot activity

Solar Cycle and Wars

Solar Cycle 24 has begun – and it has been predicted by NASA, NOAA and ESA to be up to 50% stronger than its ‘record breaking’ predecessor Cycle 23 which produced the largest solar flare ever recorded. The Sun will reach its ‘apex’ (maximum) in late 2011 into 2012.

We have tantalizing hints that the Earth’s climate may be linked to sunspots. The “Little Ice Age” corresponded with a 70-year period, 1645-1715, when sunspots were sparse in number, the Maunder minimum. Also, there are strong statistical associations linking current trends in climate (surface temperatures) to trends in solar activity, as outlined in another paper by Wilson for the Journal of Geophysical Research (Atmospheres).

So does this mean we can expect another carrington event in the near future?

Huge coronal mass ejection and solar flare?

Here's a tidbit I ran across in the book "Master of War", a biography of the (US Civil War) Federal General George H. Thomas, by Benson Bobrick (the author considers General Thomas to have been the best general of the Federal side).
"...when he was fifteen,, he was nearly cut to pieces in Nat Turner's great slave revolt...As always, Nat looked for confirming signs. An eclipse of the sun on February 12, 1831, seemed to give it....He waited for a second divine confirmation of his plans. On Saturday, August 13, 1831, it came. Residents along the entire Eastern Seaboard of the United States awoke that morning to a sun that seemed to be in the last stages of its extinction. As it dimmed remarkably, it grew so pale that 'it could be looked at directly.' Then changing hues, it went from green to blue to white. Finally, a black spot appeared on its surface 'like a black hand.' In Virginia and elsewhere, it was a seen as an omen of some earth-shaking deed. Alarm gripped residents from South Carolina to New York. To those on Manhattan Island, the sky seemed ablaze, and the whole of Newark appeared on fire."

Enough ejecta to dim the sun, create an enormous sunspot, and cause tremendous auroras visible in daylight? Would our current electronic society survive something that energetic?

Oh, yes - "August 22, as Nat's men drew near...Mrs. Thomas and her children piled into a carriage, as the mounted slaves pursued. George, then fifteen, drove the horses. But Nat's band gained ground. When it appeared the slaves would overtake them, they abandoned the carriage and took to the woods. 'In and out of gloomy Mill Swamp, across Cypress Bridge and the bottomlands of the Nottoway River,' they escaped in their hectic flight to the county seat of Jerusalem, ten miles from home. Meanwhile, the family slaves refused to join the revolt. Forced at first to ride with the band, they deserted at the first opportunity, and finding their way to Jerusalem, were lodged for safekeeping overnight in the jail."
