EU2013 Wallace Thornhill photo III


Wallace Thornhill, the Chief Science Advisor to The Thunderbolts Project, will give two talks at the conference.  He is co-author with David Talbott of Thunderbolts of the Gods and The Electric Universe. His first peer-reviewed paper on the electrical nature of stars and supernovae was published in the IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, Vol 35 No. 4, Special Issue on Space & Cosmic Plasmas – August 2007. In 2010 he was awarded a gold medal by the European Telesio-Galilei Academy of Science. For his lifelong contribution to science, he received the distinguished Sagnac Award from the Natural Philosophy Alliance in 2013. He has spoken at numerous international conferences and authored or co-authored papers ranging from the Martian “blueberry” phenomenon to the “plasma focus” at the centers of galaxies. His interviews for “Space News from the Electric Universe” have been among the most popular attractions on the YouTube Thunderbolts Channel.

Future Science

Goodbye big bang and the mathematical nonsense masquerading as modern science. The future is a different universe — an Electric Universe — and The Thunderbolts Project is the key to that future. The Thunderbolts Project follows the Renaissance model of inventors, philosophers, engineers and artists being funded by private visionaries. Science advances once more because the concepts are real and the language simple and available to all. The Electric Universe ushers in an unparalleled revolution culturally as well as scientifically because of its foundation in the multi-disciplinary work of the 20th-century polymath Immanuel Velikovsky. We can understand our amazing cosmic story and ourselves for the first time in a universal context. The future promises the end of a tragically damaged and amnesic childhood and conscious reconnection with each other and the living Electric Universe.



David Talbott, the founder and director of The Thunderbolts Project will give two presentations. His book The Saturn Myth (1980) helped to inspire the work of several others now joined in this collaborative project. In 1996 his work was the subject of a documentary Remembering the End of the World by Canadian filmmaker Ben Ged Low. More recently, he was the co-author with Australian physicist Wallace Thornhill, of two books, Thunderbolts of the Gods and The Electric Universe. Three episodes of his full-length documentary series Symbols of an Alien Sky have been among the most popular video presentations on the Thunderbolts Project YouTube Channel. He is currently posting the Discourses on an Alien Sky series.

EU2014 Don Scott 150X165


 The Next Step – New Evidence of Birkeland Current Activity

Since 1908 when Kristian Birkeland proposed that Earth’s “Northern and Southern Lights” (aurorae Borealis and Australis) are powered by electric currents coming from the Sun, scientists have wondered what exact shape these currents have and whether there are any other examples of these kinds of electrical currents in our universe. Most astronomers and astrophysicists denied that possibility. In 2015, this speaker, Dr. Donald Scott, completed the derivation of a model of what these Birkeland currents must look like. The unique property that identifies these Birkeland currents is their ‘counter-rotation’. Within a few short weeks of Scott’s prediction, NASA released a video of exactly these counter-rotating currents. In the last three EU conferences, he showed evidence that his model correctly predicts what occurs at the north and south poles of several planets as well as Earth. At this year’s conference, he will present new evidence that huge Birkeland currents also connect and serve to power many galaxies in deep space. He will present for the first time, evidence that Birkeland currents affect the Earth in more ways than just the polar auroras.

Dr. Donald Scott earned his Bachelors and Masters degrees in Electrical Engineering at the University of Connecticut. He earned a Doctorate in Electrical Engineering at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, Massachusetts, and was a member of the faculty of the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst from 1959 until his retirement in 1998. During that time, he was the recipient of several good-teaching awards and authored numerous scientific papers and chapters. In 1987, the McGraw-Hill Book Company published his 730-page textbook, An Introduction To Circuit Analysis – A Systems Approach. In addition, Dr. Scott published the classic, Electric Sky (2006), 256 pages of compelling material on the Electric Universe and plasma cosmology.

The Electric Activity in the Plasma of Living Cells

Jacqueline Greenfield, NMD, OMD, will develop Dr. Gerald Pollack’s work on structured (EZ) water, presenting evidence for an electrical interpretation of the activity of molecules in cells. According to the EU Model, plasma is the electrical medium in the universe responsible for the formation of planets, stars, and galaxies from the very large to the very small. The same electrostatic and dipole fields that act in the macrocosm of the universe are at work inside and outside of cells energizing and revitalizing the human body. EZ water can be compared with to the plasma of the universe, interacting in another level of microcosm and macrocosm. It provides the milieu for the tiny simultaneous electrical cellular interactions in metabolic pathways. Likewise, EZ water is responsible for communicating information instantly long range within cellular matrices and scales macroscopically throughout connective tissue as well as along acupuncture meridians throughout the body. Information is orchestrated interchangeably via cellular membrane highways. Water molecules become charged, forming layers interfacing with opposing concentrations of charge with ions and protein surfaces inside and outside the cell. The effect enables conformational changes required for electrochemical reactions to take place.

Jacqueline Greenfield, NMD, OMD is a Naturopathic and Oriental Medical Physician and international educator, specializing in bioinformatics and nutrigenomics. She graduated from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in 1998. She is an independent researcher applying EU principles to molecular biology.

EU2017 Eileen McKusick 150X165EILEEN MCKUSICK

Human Bioelectricity and the EU Model

Electric Universe theory shows us that the Universe we inhabit is electrical in nature. But what about us as humans? Medical science has been entrenched in the chemical/mechanical nature of the human body, yet we too are electrical in nature. In this talk, we will consider research on the bioelectric body and see how that fits in with the EU model.

Eileen McKusick is an independent researcher who has been studying the effects of audible sound on the human body since 1996. Her observations, and consequent questions, about the seemingly magnetic properties of the space around the body led her to discover plasma, bioplasma, and EU. Eileen’s Biofield Anatomy Hypothesis posits that the human biofield is a diffuse magnetic plasma that is imprinted with our memories. She has mapped this field and discovered that specific types of memories are stored in specific areas, and has developed a sound therapy method called Biofield Tuning that works with this model.

EU2017 Irving-Wolfe-150x150IRVING WOLFE, PhD

Introduction to Velikovsky’s Ideas

Dr. Irving Wolfe will review Immanuel Velikovsky’s contributions to a broad-ranging discourse in the sciences. Why did Velikovsky’s best-selling Worlds in Collision provoke one of most heated scientific controversies of the 20th century? Why did the gatekeepers of “acceptable” theory feel compelled to mobilize a boycott of the original publisher? And is it possible that Velikovsky’s own perspective on cultural amnesia can help us understand the reactions to his work? Modeling his analysis on a judicial approach, Dr. Wolfe will correct the record for the benefit of new generations in the sciences.

Irving Wolfe earned a Ph.D. in Drama from the University of Bristol, England. He is a member of the faculty, Department of English, University of Montréal, Canada. In addition to his literary research, Professor Wolfe has presented several dozen papers on catastrophism at conferences in England, Canada, and the United States, and has published papers in the field in British, Canadian and American journals. He has also contributed large sections on catastrophism to a number of anthologies. Professor Wolfe is concerned with the long-lasting effects of collective unconscious catastrophic memory on later collective and individual human behavior and intellectual products, so his articles, conference papers, and book sections have focused on catastrophism and Shakespeare, creative art, religion, cosmology, ancient chronology, political activism, epistemology, sport, soap opera, ancient governments and public rituals, ancient cities, ancient writing and literacy, scientific repression and popular culture. He is currently completing a book on catastrophism and unconscious collective memory in Shakespeare.

EU2017 Peter Moddel 150X165PETER MODDEL

What Can Matter Be? 
A philosophical approach

The Electric Universe emphasizes that mass is not to be confused with matter, and it suggests a way of understanding the observed effects of mass. This leaves the question: what then is matter? To recognize matter is to attribute presence to an object. Understanding this process can loosen our grip on settled assumptions that otherwise appear incontrovertible. The talk is in three parts: I. From ancient Greek philosophy; II. From the science behind perception; and III. To the paradox that is the presence of matter.

Born in Ireland and living in Switzerland, Peter Moddel works with students and teachers, facilitating their endeavors through the recognition of the mind’s structures that guide individual ways of learning. As a passionate amateur astronomer, from Palomar times onward he followed the work of Halton Arp. Philosophical reflection grounded in observation rather than in ideas forms the basis of Peter’s thinking. The role of consciousness has been the common thread of his search for solutions to specific problems in philosophy. He is the author of Making Sense, an inquiry into a perception that offers a fresh approach to age-old questions about the physical world and the role of the perceiving subject. In the context of the Electric Universe, these reflections find special relevance.

EU2015 CJ Ransom 150X165


Why So Surprising?

Since the start of the Space Age in the late 1950s, scientists were often surprised about what was found by space probes and remote detection devices. Probe results were often described as “surprising” or “unexpected”. In 1950 there were four major assumptions that were directly or indirectly used in developing predictions about what would be expected by probes in the then quickly approaching space age. If those ideas were so accurate, why were there so many surprising discoveries during the space age? This presentation address that issue.

Dr. C.J. Ransom received his Ph.D. in Plasma Physics from The University of Texas at Austin. He joined an engineering group at General Dynamics in Fort Worth, Texas and developed electro-optics equipment, infrared (IR) detection devices and simulated infrared (IR) guided missiles using analog and digital methods. He also developed non-destructing testing techniques for crack detection in aerospace vehicles. This included IR, ultrasonic and magnetic techniques. Dr. Ransom later joined Bell Helicopter where he managed a technical computing group. He also directed the Department of Defense’s Continuous Acquisition and Life-cycle Support (CALS) program for Textron, the parent company of Bell Helicopter. Dr. Ransom taught graduate software testing in the Texas Christian University Computer Science Department. He was on the committee that developed a software engineering graduate program at Southern Methodist University. After retiring, Dr. Ransom founded Vemasat Research Institute. Since its origin in 2004, Vemasat personnel have published a number of papers. The work is mainly concerned
