The Simplified Case for Cosmic Electrodynamics

Astronomers have implicated a strong role for magnetic fields in many astrophysical processes, yet they appear to be at a loss to explain those magnetic fields or why they should be important. Working within a gravity-dominated paradigm does not help the situation either. ... [More...]

I wish I had the intelligence to have thought about that. I never had much exposure to magnetic fields in the cosmology field until about 1998, 2000 at the latest. I must have been dense to not have related electric current to the magnetic field.

I remember asking myself why would they be there? They never actually got into "frozen in lines", or "magnetic reconnection" on the pages I explored. Merely that the magnetic field of the sun was enormous and was diagramed like a lawn sprinkler that spins, which was unlike the earth magnetic field we so diagramed. That spiral magnetic field fascinated me...

Dispite the fact I have a degree in electronics, the simple theory of class evaded me and I failed to make the fundamental leap of logic that this paper does so well. The sleep that modern science puts on your thinking cap is terrible. I swear we are almost brainwashed....

meanwhile these papers that are written as blogs, are so very good to wake us from our stupor and to let us realize that people without diplomas make more sense then the professional....

I think the less schooling you have, the better. Learning and schooling are not the same thing.
We do not know how to reason...we know how to memorize.

There is so little reason in Modern Cosmology, Alice in Wonderland comes to mind.

"Precisely... If you cannot say what you mean, you can never mean what you say" -The Queen of Hearts, Alice in Wonderland (if I recall correctly).

I made precisely that point yesterday in responding to a blog elsewhere. This is precisely the reason we need to present children with multiple possible options, and teach them the skills to reason through the options, possibly even think "outside the box" to come to the conclusion that makes the most sense, given the facts.

Anything else (IE, given only one possible solution) is not learning to "think," it's rote memorization. And if the thing being memorized is incorrect, it's an utter and complete waste of time. Not only do they not know the correct thing, they have no tools for realizing their error and correcting it through logical thinking, reasoning, deduction, induction, independent thought, etc. etc.

It saddens me to think that our children may be brought up in such intellectual squallor. But, on the bright side, perhaps not all is lost. After all, it seems one can "unlearn" what one has learned. But it requires quite a bit of concentrated effort and time.
