Many EU proponents decry a "Gravity only" perspective, but visualize an electric cosmos in terms of
Yes, it would have to be detectable, if not in visible light, then at the very least in radio frequencies.
One way around this is to say that the current is too thinly distributed to be detected until it gets to the Sun, where it erupts in spectacular brilliance. But that begs the question of what keeps it so distributed -- why doesn't the magnetic pinch effect consolidate the inbound current? I don't think that there is an answer to that one.
Other people seem to think that the Electric Sun hypothesis is working just fine as a rough sketch of what's going on, and which at the very least addresses questions not well treated by the "gravity only" model. And they're so satisfied that they don't see the point in further debate. For example, Monty Childs will tell you that there are only two models of the Sun: 1) the gravity only model, and 2) the anode model. If you don't like the gravity only model, what's not to like about the anode model?
Well, if you don't think that the issue is worth further consideration, then move on.
But I see fatal flaws in the anode model, and I'm not just looking for new or other answers -- I'm looking for correct answers.
