a “ring current”—a doughnut-shaped flow of plasma and electricity—circles the central accumulation of plasma. Power flows into the ring current, which stores it until a threshold is reached. Then the ring discharges to the central body."
They were previously main sequence, but shrunk.

is this a torus? have you seen how the current flows into and out of it? i have not been able to find info on how this is done.They were previously main sequence, but shrunk.
do you imply that the current needed to maintain an arc mode was disrupted?
Is Earth lightning 'arc mode'?
Jupiter's weather patterns. These are toruses?

Yes, as is smaller sparks, and probably the stars. The other modes of plasma discharge are "dark", and "glow". There is radiation associated with each mode, whether the discharge can be seen or not. But i like the statement plasma makes in arc mode best..Jupiter's weather patterns. These are toruses?
I would say that those would be vortexes, like tornadoes and hurricanes....a torus, donut, or ring, would be around the planet, as i understand it.
When I think of the stars I think of large hydrogen/helium balloons.
-they can be safely assumed to be shrinking over their lifetimes?

* Jeffrey, I think Fred J has also written that Earth used to be a planet like Neptune, in which the atmosphere occasionally exploded, because of the presence of volatile gases. Each explosion blew away parts of the previously thick atmosphere. The age of dinosaurs was when the air was much thicker, making the surface much warmer with an even temperature all over the Earth. CO2 was much thicker then too. He also has suggested that electric and magnetic forces made Earth oval shaped originally and very fast spinning, causing a centrifugal reduction of weight, allowing animals and plants to grow much bigger. The changing shape also caused plate tectonics and continental drift etc.
* Would you let us know how you determined that the Sun is 10 to 30 million years old?
