Electric Universe at the NPA

Unread postby David Talbott » Wed Apr 13, 2011 3:24 pm

In the past few weeks the details have come together very nicely for the Thunderbolts/Electric Universe contribution to the upcoming Natural Philosophy Alliance conference, July 6-9, at the University of Maryland.
http://conf18.worldnpa.org/index.php?&MMN_position=1:1

Thunderbolts Project contributors will include:

Wal Thornhill (two talks):

"The Natural Philosophy of the Electric Universe" (The John Chappell Memorial Lecture)

"Galaxies and Stars in an Electric Universe"

David Talbott (two talks):

"Electric Universe: An Interdisciplinary Perspective"

"Electric Universe: The Planets Bear Witness"

Jim Johnson, "Essential Guide to the Electric Universe"

Michael Gmirkin, "The Sun-Earth Connection (and Other Considerations)"

Dwardu Cardona, "Earth’s Primeval Polar Heat"

Ev Cochrane, "Evidence for a Radically Different Solar System in Recent History"

Bob Johnson, "Exploring the Electrical Circuitry of the Sun"

Tom Findlay, "Introductory Guide to the Electric Universe"

Rens van der Sluijs, "Towards a History of Plasma-Universe Theory"

Tim Erney, "The Drift-Alfvén Model for a Magnetized Plasma Applied to Saturn's Polar Vortices"

Michael Steinbacher, Mel Acheson, "A New Approach to Mountain Formation"


OTHER HIGHLIGHTS:

David Russell, a colleague of Halton Arp, will speak on "Evidence for Large Deviations from Hubble’s Law in Normal Spiral Galaxies"

University of Washington professor Gerald Pollack, known to many folks in our circle, will give a talk on the plasma like attributes of water. For orientation, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVBEwn6iWOo

Also of great interest to us, the NPA will be honoring astronomer Halton Arp with the Annual Sagnac award for "outstanding achievement in astronomy and cosmology."

Adding to the enthusiasm will be many NPA regulars who've only recently discovered the Electric Universe. In a nutshell, a lot is happening, and I can't imagine that anyone for whom attendance is possible would want to miss this event.

It's not entirely clear how much video recording will be done, but all of the papers presented will be published in advance of the event.

Of course the conference will mean much more than a series of papers . The event will be a milestone for both the NPA and the Thunderbolts Project. For the NPA, it will be first annual conference with substantial public attendance, thanks to the growing interest in the Electric Universe, and it's likely to more than double their previous attendance record. For us, the partnership with the NPA means an instantaneous expansion of our scientific liaison.

Dozens of scientists will be giving presentations. But most of the presentations relating to the Electric Universe will be for scientists and the informed public alike.

The greatest inspiration comes from independent, but converging lines of research. That's the mantra we share with the NPA folks: convergence, not artificial "consensus".

Also, a documentary writer/director will be present, and will be interviewing numerous speakers and others. (I'll have more to say on this shortly.)

Just a reminder to folks that we have a separate thread on the Announcements board for taking up logistical issues relating to travel, carpooling, room sharing, registration and other details.

Here's some more information concerning how universal Dr. Pollack's ideas are, in this case specific to the oldest manual healing profession (Massage Therapy and bodywork): http://massagetoday.org/mpacms/mt/article.php?id=14012. Dr. Pollack is specifically mentioned. He is also attending the 3rd Fascia Congress in Vancouver in March 2012, which draws Therapists worldwide. Important work!

Just a quick comment after the fact. The conference was nothing short of awesome. Loved it. Plenty of good lectures (though, a few I could have done without; c'est la vie!), lots of good conversations. Very much enjoyed meeting many people I've only known as screen names before.

So, yes, it was a very nice week in Maryland. :)

Best,

For those interested, Vimeo has the first two parts of Wal Thornhill's presentation from the NPA Conference here. It's succinct and covers a lot about the EU paradigm today. You'll find Part 2 listed to the right side; I am guessing that the rest will be processed and put up here with these two segments.

Agree. Again the suggestion, you might want to set up a new discussion area on the forum specifically for the NPA conference rather than having people have to look through ten or more areas for NPA conference discussions.
