Power Lines

  Sep 23, 2016 Galaxies often exhibit alignment with one another across vast distances. According to Electric Universe theory, galactic evolution occurs as large-scale plasma discharges form spinning wheels of coherent filaments that display electrodynamic behavior and not merely that … Continue reading
