A New Order of Magnitude
The scale and significance of
solar electromagnetic disturbances
is being reevaluated.
“The medium is the message. This
is merely to say that the personal
and social consequences of any
medium—that is, of any extension of
ourselves—result from the new scale
that is introduced into our affairs
by each extension of ourselves, or
by any new technology.”
According to a
recent press release, an
immense eruption on the Sun
encompassed almost an
entire hemisphere. The
extraordinary plasma discharge
prompted this response from Karel
Schrijver of Lockheed Martin's Solar
and Astrophysics Lab in Palo Alto,
California: "The August 1st event
really opened our eyes. We see that
solar storms can be global events,
playing out on scales we scarcely
coronal mass ejection
(CME) demonstrated that solar
explosions are interconnected by
magnetic fields reaching out for
thousands of miles. The Great
Eruption (as it was called) was
composed of several smaller
components: solar flares, filaments,
and CMEs that spanned 180 degrees of
solar longitude and lasted for 28
CMEs typically spew plasma in the
billions of tons throughout the
Solar System. A signature of CME
ejections is an increase in auroral
brightness and frequency on Earth.
The ejections are composed of
charged particles, and are attracted
to and follow Earth's polar magnetic
cusps. A few CMEs have been observed
to leave the Sun with unexpected
acceleration: velocities more than
70,000 kilometers per second have
The fact that events on the Sun
should be influenced by one another
does not seem surprising when the
Electric Star model is considered.
Magnetic fields have been detected
in galaxies, meaning that electric
currents must flow through them in
circuits. There is no other way to
create a magnetic field other than
the movement of electric current in
a conductive medium.
Magnetic forces constrict
currents into filaments, which twist
around each other and "pinch"
galactic plasma into balls, pulling
matter together until internal
pressure balances the so-called
"electromagnetic z-pinch" pressure.
This pinch effect is far more
powerful than gravity, and can
gather matter from hundreds of
light-years away, forming stars like
beads along the galactic filaments.
The surface of a star like the
Sun generates multiple loop
structures that rise up from its
surface and penetrate its plasma
sheath, or double layer region of
the Sun, where most of its
electrical energy is contained. When
the current flowing into the Sun's
plasma sheath increases beyond a
certain point it can trigger a
sudden release of energy, otherwise
known as a CME.
As Electric Universe advocate
Don Scott makes clear,
powerful looping electric currents
generate secondary toroidal magnetic
fields. If the current grows too
strong, the plasma double layer is
destroyed. That event interrupts the
current flow and the stored
electromagnetic energy is blasted
It is not surprising to Electric
Universe proponents that conditions
on the Sun are governed by
interconnected magnetic fields, and,
by extension, electric currents.
The Lightning-Scarred Planet Mars
Symbols of an Alien Sky
DVD episode 2
A video documentary that could change everything you thought you knew
about ancient times and symbols.
The Symbols of an Alien Sky video series will introduce you to celestial
spectacles and earth-shaking events once remembered around the world.
Archaic symbols of these events still surround us, some as icons of the
world’s great religions, though the origins of the symbols appear to be
In this second episode of Symbols of an Alien Sky, David
Talbott takes the viewer on an odyssey across the surface of Mars.
Exploring feature after feature of the planet, he finds that only
electric arcs could produce the observed patterns. The high resolution
images reveal massive channels and gouges, great mounds, and crater
chains, none finding an explanation in traditional geology, but all
matching the scars from electric discharge experiments in the
