Astronomers believe that the Universe is expanding at an ever accelerating rate.
They suggest that galaxies are receding from their instruments because they started out that way: the Big Bang is supposed to be the source for all energy in the Universe, including expansion. Current estimates for the rate of that expansion are about 71 kilometers per second for every 3.3 million light-years. That effect is called the “Hubble flow”, or the “Hubble constant”.
In the 1960s, it was found that galaxies near the Milky Way seem to experience a large-scale motion superposed on the Hubble flow. Redshift measurements of the Local Group, the Virgo supercluster, the Hydra-Centaurus supercluster, and other galactic superclusters indicate that they are moving at 600 kilometers per second toward the constellation Centaurus over 150 million light-years away. The massive gravity force is known as the Great Attractor.
In order to explain those combined redshifts, a group of objects called the Great Wall (or the Centaurus Wall), in which the Great Attractor is embedded, is theorized to be what is generating the pull. However, the Great Wall is not massive enough to move galactic superclusters.
Another force, orders of magnitude more powerful than the Great Wall and its Great Attractor scion, is thought to exist so far away from Earth that it is outside the range of the most powerful telescopes. In keeping with the terminology that has become familiar to astronomers, the unseen power Is called, “dark flow”. Conventional theories see clusters with velocities that are independent of the expansion of the Universe and that do not change as distances increase. That finding adds to the mystery of their observations.
How many times do Electric Universe advocates have to read the words, “we never expected this” or something similar? Notwithstanding the problems associated with redshift, previous Pictures of the Day about WMAP, galaxy clusters, and gravity-only cosmology elucidate a force that exerts an attractive power many orders of magnitude greater than gravity: electricity. Each “puzzling” discovery by research scientists reinforces the tenets of plasma cosmology and serves to differentiate it from the imprecise predictions of consensus models.
Clusters of galaxies are pinches in a supergalactic Birkeland current. The usual morphology of a Birkeland current is a double helix, or a hierarchy of double helices. With greater resolution, each filament of a current is, at a smaller scale, a tube of filaments which, in pairs, tend to spiral around a common axis.
Electrified plasma contained in the twisting filaments of Birkeland currents dominates the Universe. They circulate in a cosmic circuit that flows into our field of view and then out into the void with long-range attraction between them. Therefore, the most probable “Great Attractors” are those filaments of electrified plasma with billions-of-trillion-times more intense fields of influence than gravity.
No doubt the Universe is larger than what we can observe at this moment because more sensitive tools have continued to reveal greater depths. Out of those depths rise electrical energies of tremendous power.
