on Earth is that?
Well, what you see happens far away from the Earth, 2300 light years distant, but the question of how it is possible is a down to earth question that should be asked about many strange phenomena in everyday existence, the kind of question that society has become conditioned not to ask anymore. For example, people should ask, how it is possible that they now pay $25 for a package of chicken in the grocery store that not long ago had cost only $5, and in some cases less. Society is told not to ask. It is said, the answer is too complicated. Just trust the elite that there is a good reason for the phenomenon.
That's a trap! Those questions should be asked, and countless others too.
I grew up in an environment back in the 1950s where such questions were a basic element of my profession in the electronics service industry for servicing radio, television, and audio equipment. One had no choice then, but to look at the symptoms and ask: how is this possible, what causes this?
The process became even more necessary later in the computer service industry in 1960s when all that one had to go by was that a tabulation machine came up with a different total every time the same job was repeated. The answer in those days rested on one having intimate knowledge of how the system functions.
Later, when the first computing systems came into use in that decade, a high-level electronics engineering knowledge was required to maintain them. In those days we had to custom create our own diagnostic programs to exercise the failing data flow and track down a week component.
And still later in the 1970s when the computer systems became larger, and numerous peripheral devices were added, it became increasingly necessary to perform the maintenance in the early hours when the system would not be needed otherwise and be available for diagnostic work. Thus I asked myself the question in those days, how can the 'world' be changed in such a manner that a small fraction of the computing power can be given to me online to do my work in the day time.
In exploring the potential with the system programmers, a protocol was made possible that enabled me to write software for diagnostic testing in the background of the system's normal use, whereby the service efficiency was increased ten-fold. As it was, I nearly got fired for this as I had inadvertently enhanced a competitive operating system that several universities had pioneered in advance of IBM's own system that had been the leader in the commercial field at the time. However, since I had vastly improved the serviceability of IBM's equipment, the managers gave me a service award instead, one of the two highest awards that the company offered. The process that I had pioneered soon became a standard in the industry.
As the technology advanced in the 1980s, the diagnostic work became increasingly automated. No one needed to ask the question anymore then as to what might be the cause for a symptom of failure. The automated world simply spelled out what component to replace, and it did it faster and more accurately. From this point on the process of analytical thinking was not only no longer required. It was discouraged instead.
At the time when the automated world was introduced, the company conducted one last in-depth class as a fall-back option. The leading engineers in the field were in attendance. One of the most brilliant of them, a fellow who was really outstanding in that class, afterwards applied the knowledge he had gained to a tricky system failure, and he succeeded based on his knowledge. However, his success application of advanced knowledge earned the man a reprimand this time. It was said that the automated world would have determined the cause of the failure in half the time. Thinking was no longer required or highly valued.
Thinking is discouraged
The world has gone through a phase shift in the sciences in a similar manner. Analytical thinking is discouraged. Education has become automated into a process of "repeat after me" and don't ask the pesky question, "why?" In the electronics world analytical thinking was discouraged, because it was no longer essential for getting things done. In the sciences it became discouraged for a slightly different reason, because there, analytical thinking is dangerous to the power of control of the elite who aims to channel the perception of society into a state of impotence whereby it can be efficiently exploited. The elite now determine the truth. Don't think! It's all automated for you. Just do what you are told. It is more efficient that way, as they say. And so, in order to keep society's thinking occupied, the elitism process issues games that tie your thinking into knots, social games, political games, science mythologies, and so on, all in order that you will do precisely as you are told and not think, and that you will do so by your own volition.
Of course, if you wish to liberate yourself from this trap, then you have to go back to the "good old days" and ask: What on earth is that? How is this possible?
Here let me warn you, if you venture into the unknown and unauthorized, you will find yourself severely reprimanded. You will be labeled a "denier of consensus," the consensus established by the elite. Indeed, you will likely be highly reluctant to go this route, to deny the consensus, for the consensus rests on powerful mythologies that requires considerable effort on your part to thread yourself out off and get away from the entangling webs. And those are dense webs indeed.
In economics the mythological web is called monetarism. In politics it is called, "making the difficult choices," also known as the practical imperatives. In the sciences you find the entangling mythological web dished up as a perception of the universe that is organized entirely by gravity, such as the Big Bang consensus, the Global Warming consensus, the endless Holocene consensus, and so on.
Let me warn you also that you will find yourself discouraged to snub the consensus and actually open your eyes, because then you would, for example, discover the reality behind the myth that you must now deal with. In this case you would find predatory oligarchism standing behind the mythical citadel of monetarism. If you get to this point your entire pyramid of familiar related assumption will then go up in a puff of smoke and you will be forced to learn the principle of real economics from the ground up.
Once you are on this course of snubbing the consensus, be cautious, because you would then also discover the imperatives of the masters of empire standing behind the "difficult" mythical choices that are made in politics in the pursuit of oligarchic power, which of course decimates your living, and even aims to depopulate the world.
Then, if you do the same in the halls of the sciences, if you snubbed the consensus there and opened your eyes, you would discover a powerful universe unfolding before you, which, if you became familiar with it, would overthrow all of the economic and political myths and present you with an unfolding phase change that lays before you the potential for a bright new world; not a mythical world, but a practical world, a dynamic renaissance world.
This is what this article is focused on. Allow me to present to you a world beyond the myths of consensus, a world that you may have never known to exist.
At the most basic physical level, at the cosmic level, the un-mythical universe unfolds almost entirely as an electric universe, with electrically organized galaxies that are electrically interconnected across the cosmos, and universally electrically powered. -- No, I am not dreaming. This is what the Universe really looks like and does so out of necessity. And please don't close the 'book' now, because what comes to light on this front has implications for your living to a far greater extent than you may imagine as possible.
So, let me start with the basics, with the most fundamental facts that are known about the universe. And let me assure you, this is crucial.
Only 5 basic physical forces operate in the Universe
Everything in the cosmos, with yourself included, is a construct of 5 basic physical universal forces. They are the forces of gravity, the electromagnetic force, the weak nuclear force, the strong nuclear force that binds protons and neutrons into atomic nuclei, and one more still stronger force that binds the so-called quarks into becoming particles that all the nuclei in the universe are made of.
Of these 5 basic forces only 2 are known to have in principle an infinite range. They are the force of gravity and the electromagnetic force. However, the two forces that do have an infinite range are both radically different from each other, especially in their effective reach.
The force of gravity is a weak force in comparison with the electromagnetic force. The electromagnetic force is known to be more than 36 orders of magnitude stronger than the force of gravity. In addition to this difference, the weaker of the two, the force of gravity, is known to diminish in its effectiveness with the square of the distance, while the electromagnetic force is known to diminish only linearly. This adds up to a big difference. By the combined differences the effective range of the force of gravity comes to light as being severely limited. It is so dramatically limited that it is effective only as a 'local' force up to the scale of a solar system.
The effective reach of the gravity of our Sun, for example, extends roughly as far as the inner edge of the recently discovered "Oort Cloud" that is illustrated below. The Oort Cloud is theorized to contain a 'swarm' of many trillions of tiny asteroid-type objects. The objects are electrically diffused into the shape of a spherical 'cloud' that surrounds the solar system at a distance of 0.03 light years, extending outwards to 0.8 light years or potentially as far as 3 light years. No evidence exists that the solar gravity extends into the Oort Cloud.
The most distant objects that the solar gravity affects are the so-called Scattered Disk objects that are a collection of tiny planetoids, contained mostly within the heliosphere, which is an electric plasma system that encapsulates the 'solar system' at a distance of 0.002 light years.
Only a very few of the scattered-disk planetoids have a long orbit that reaches beyond the heliosphere to the edge of the Oort Cloud that surrounds the heliosphere at a great distance.
The Oort cloud is thought to occupy the space from between 0.03 and 0.08 ly to as far as 0.79 ly from the Sun, though some estimates place the outer edge at between 1.58 and 3.16 ly.. The cloud region can be subdivided into a spherical outer Oort cloud of 0.32–0.79 ly, and a doughnut-shaped inner Oort cloud of 0.03–0.32 light years. See: Oort Cloud.
The very few orbits of the planetoids that extend to the inner edge of the Oort Cloud (not included in the above), give us a measure of the effective reach of the solar gravity, because if the solar gravity reached any further, the spherical Oort Cloud would likely have been squashed into the shape of a disk of orbiting debris.
It becomes apparent from the above observation that the force of gravity is in principle extremely limited in its reach, with the solar gravity reaching no further than about 3/100th of a light year. The resulting recognition takes the force of gravity completely out of the picture as a governing force on the galactic scale that extends across 100,000 light years, as our Milky Way Galaxy does.
The evidence before us thereby leaves the field open exclusively to the electromagnetic force as the organizing and operating force in a galaxy. This is so for the simple reason that no other force exists with the corresponding reach. The evidence renders the concept of orbiting stars around the center of a galaxy a 'mythological' dreaming as no force exists in the Universe that can cause such a thing to happen. Nothing happens without a cause, and the cause for the imaginary stellar orbits simply does not exist. The entire concept of orbiting stars is a cleverly constructed myth, tenaciously upheld by the process of consensus.
The myth of orbiting stars
All notions of stars orbiting the galactic center are for reasons of their lack of a gravitational center and a force to hold onto them on the galactic scale, rendered sheer physical impossibilities, or scientific mysticism. No gravitational force exists that would keep a star (such as our solar system) as an orbiting object circling around the center of a galaxy, much less hundreds of billions of stars together, as in the case of our Milky Way Galaxy.
The immense gravitational center that would be required to exert such a far-reaching gravitational force, simply does not exist, nor is it possible to exist on the required scale. Such dreams are possible only in the mythological world of super massive black holes that defy all known principles, that can neither be seen nor be detected, which are deemed to mysteriously provide the necessary gravity. However, since the required gravity is even mathematically impossible, the existence of dark matter is dreamed up in addition, and also dark energy, all in order to make the mythical perception of orbiting stars seem plausible.
In the mystic universe of the Big Bang theory, where only gravity rules, such wild excursion into the land of imagination are basically required to explain anything, and they are put forth whether the result is rational or not.
In the real world, however, where far greater forces are known than the force of gravity, and are known as organizing and operating the universe, the notion of orbiting stars is simply omitted as nothing exists in the universe that can cause the imagined phenomenon to occur.
Most people tragically believe that the difference between the imagined an the real cosmological perception is too distant to affect them, so that the myth of orbiting stars is basically deemed to be harmless as a myth, and is therefore conveniently accepted. It is true only to a point that the myth is harmless, as any myth basically is, until the myth becomes the foundation for apocalyptic perceptions that underlie major public policies that are thereby given a deadly dimension.
One apocalyptic theory of this type, which has it that the Sun, and with it the Earth, is orbiting through the various arms of the Milky Way Galaxy that is similar in principle to the one shown above, but is more complex, imagines the solar system passing on its orbit through areas of lesser and greater star density.
The 145 million-year phanerozoic climate cycles for which physical evidence does exist, are said to be the result of the solar system passing between and through the galactic arms, which is said to have catastrophic consequences for the Earth of the type that becomes reflected on living systems as periods in which mass extinctions occur. The notion is conjured up that our world is in the throes of a "galactic crisis" for this reason, on which almost everything bad is being blamed like on a "bogyman."
Another mythical theory related to the orbiting Sun has the Sun swinging in great loops through the galactic plain, all the way up to the edge of the galactic disk, somewhat like a bouncing ball. The bouncing-ball orbital path is said to give the earth a wide open exposure at its upper extreme, to what is deemed extraordinarily strong cosmic radiation on the side facing the Virgo Super Cluster of galaxies.
The known 62 million year climate cycles that we have evidence for on our planet, are deemed to be the result of this bouncing ball phenomenon. All of the 5 major mass extinctions on Earth that we evidence for in fossil records, are said to be caused directly by the bouncing-ball cycle, with the extinction of the dinosaurs 65-million years ago having been the last of the big mass-extinction events.
It is said, therefore, that this super-dangerous 62 million year apocalyptic extinction cycle has become critical once again, starting in 2010. It is said that the Earth is affected by a cyclical galactic crisis and that the extinction of humanity may occur because of it, unless we become technologically advanced to protect ourselves from it.
A great real danger is arising from this modern apocalyptic mysticism, not because any of it is real, since no known physical force exists that would motivate such a bouncing ball trajectory. The danger lies in the effect the accepted myth has on public policy.
The galactic crisis is presently blamed for the entire phenomena of changing weather patterns on earth, including the increased cosmic radiation, the weaker sun, the colder climates, the increasing snowfalls and droughts, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and so forth. By laying the blame for what we see happening onto the supposed galactic apocalyptic crisis, the real cause gets lost sight of. And this is what is indeed happening.
All the currently experienced meteorological occurrences that have increasingly a devastating effect on the global food supply, are blamed on the 'bogyman,' the galactic crisis, while in the real world the increasingly devastating meteorological events are nothing more than the lawful consequences of a cooling-sun in a transition process towards the next Ice Age that is already in progress. By changing the focus away from knowable facts to mythological fiction, the necessary response to the physical cause is being prevented.
The result could have immensely tragic consequences. For example, if the 1960 NAWAPA plan for diverting rivers from Alaska to the American South and Mexico, would be implemented as it is again being promoted, which would require a national effort spanning 50 years, the functioning of the giant project would likely be disabled by the highly likely permanent freeze-up of the north that might be upon us in 50 years under the presently increasing trends. In this case, the 50 years of national effort would have been wasted, that should have been used to create the needed new food infrastructures for the coming Ice Age transition, which thereby would leave society exposed to great tragedies because of that failure.
This is the kind of effect that the focusing on the various science-myths tends to have, which by their apocalyptic nature tend to overshadow everything.
Such an exposure to failures of course wouldn't happen on a scientifically truthful platform. On the scientifically truthful platform it is known that the observed movements of stars follows the principles pertaining to electric currents in plasma that pervades galactic space.
It is known, for example, that the electric currents that power the galaxies, which flow through its spiral arms, reflect the self-twisting principles of electric currents flowing in plasma, known as Birkeland currents. When the observed movement of stars is seen mechanistically, they are invariably applied to the mythical perception that suggests a bouncing-ball trajectory, but when they are seen electro-dynamically an entirely different perception unfolds.
The bouncing ball path is an extrapolation based on minute movements that are observed, but are seen with a poor understanding of the principle that the movements represent. This doesn't mean that the 62 million year, and 145 million year, long cycles do not exist. To the contrary. They do exist. We have historic evidence in oxygen-18 isotope measurements that these cycles are real. However, since the universe with all its suns is electrically powered, the nature of the historic long cycles is easily recognized as an electric-resonance phenomenon in the current streams that our galaxy is a part of. No magic is required for that.
Resonance cycles are common occurrences in electric systems. In electronics careful engineering can minimize them. On the larger scale, however, we have no option but to live with them. In the Earth's atmosphere the resonance is measured at 8 cycles per second, known as the Schumann Resonance. In the solar heliosphere, which is vastly larger, the resonance cycle is 11 years in duration. Other electric resonances on the larger galactic scale, give us the 100,000-year ice age cycles. In a similar manner, the intergalactic electric resonances can be seen to give us the still longer 62-million year and 145-million year climate cycles that we have discovered evidence for on earth.
These discovered climate cycles tell us rather plainly that we do not have to fear the mythical high-powered galactic-crisis extinction-cycles, since the two long cycles are presently both near their minimal point. Nevertheless one cannot ignore that the combination of the two cycles has reached the same low point that 450 million years ago was associated with a major ice age that did cause a mass-extinction at the time.
While this recognition doesn't indicate that an era of extinction lays ahead, it does place some major challenges before humanity, to protect its food supply from the impending return of the normal ice age climate that has ruled the planet for 2 million years already (only partially shown).
It is difficult for society to grasp that the entire development of civilization occurred during the space of a climate anomaly that gave us a holiday away from the normal cold.
The fact may not be pleasant to realize, but no matter how we look at it, we do live presently in a wonderfully idyllic systemic anomaly that we brush off lightly as an interglacial period that we cannot see coming to an end, which we know theoretically repeats itself roughly every 100,000 years, typically in the form of short pulses spanning 10-12,000 years, but which we cannot see beyond.
We are somewhat aware of the nature of this interglacial, since we have given the current one a special name to describe its nature. We call it the Holocene epoch, our holiday from the cold where all of what we have become has developed.
We have never experienced the real normal climate at any time that anyone can remember. We only know from ice core samples that the previous 'normal' climate had been 30 times colder than the Little Ice Age that had been the only deep-cold that humanity has ever experienced, and which we have records for, of the devastating effects.
While there is no danger involved for humanity, of the planet swinging back to its normal climate, since we do have the resources as human beings to protect our food supply from the cold should we care to apply these resources, we face grave danger if we fail. This danger is real. Much of humanity, if not all, may perish as the result of it.
Here the question looms monumentally: How far along are we in the transition?
What do we know about it from the standpoint of the electric galaxy? What do we know about its dynamics?
It appears that the ice age transition out of the interglacial climate may have started as far back as 2000 years ago. That's when a sequence of stepped down-swings began. In between the steps we also see smaller steps having occurred, of shorter duration. The St. Petersburg geophysicist Eugen Borisenkov recognized that the deep solar minimum cycles, like of the Maunder Minimum, follow an approximately 200-year cycle. (see: New U.S. Studies Confirm Earlier Russian Reports of Weakening Sun, Possible New Ice Age)
Considering that we live in an electric galaxy, these discovered cycles must have an electric cause, and they do have this in the form of electric resonance cycles. In the same manner that the atmosphere of the Earth has a resonance cycle of 1/8th of a second in duration (the Schumann Resonance), and the much larger solar heliosphere has its 11-year resonance cycle (the solar activity or sunspot cycles), so would the still larger space between the heliosphere and the electrically dense Oort Cloud have a similar resonance corresponding to the discovered 200-year oscillations. And in like manner again would the Oort Cloud itself have its own internal resonance.
The Oort Cloud appears to be a highly charged plasma sphere, and as such, it would function somewhat like a capacitor that levels out large short-term fluctuations in the interstellar electric environment. Thus, by being intensely electric in nature, it would have its own and rather strong electric resonance that affects both the Sun, and with it the climate on Earth.
The space between the heliosphere and the Oort Cloud is roughly 0.03 light years wide, corresponding to the 200-year resonance that has been observed. The inner Oort Cloud is thought to be 0.3 light years thick, or ten times as thick, which we could see reflected in the 500-year resonance that we find in the ice core samples. The outer Oort Cloud that extends to between 1 to 3 light years further might be too large in size to also be a part of the rather 'short' 500-year resonances. Still it is within the range of possibilities that the 500-year cycle includes the entire Oort Cloud, depending on the speed of the current propagation. At 300 Km/s plasma would have to move 1000 years to travel the distance of one light year. At 600 Km/s it would cross this distance in 500 years. NASA's Ulysses satellite has measured solar wind consistently at 800 km/s. At a similarly high propagation speed the outer sphere could be a part of the 500-year resonance.
However, we have learned from observing the solar cycles, that the cycle time becomes longer when the electric density in a system is lowered, which evidently increases the propagation time. The ice core samples tell us that the same phenomenon may also happen in the Oort Cloud system.
In the initial period of the down-stepping towards an ice age, when the electric density of the cloud would have been still at a high level, the resonance time observed for this period was 500 years long (between year zero and 500 AD). The next cycle, as the system began to weaken, was correspondingly longer, app. 650 years in duration (500 AD to 1150 AD). The follow-on cycle in turn, being dramatically weaker would logically have its resonance time become still longer. This is what we see. We see a resonance of app. 850 years in duration (1150 AD to the present). All of this means that we are now entering the 4th cycle, and with it the next typical steep down-step before us.
The typical historic down-steps have each produced a cooling equivalent to app. 3 times of that of the Little Ice Age cooling. If the historic trend holds true, the type of cooling that we may experience over the next 50 years would be roughly the same. It would make the Earth 3 times colder than the Little Ice Age had been, or maybe more.
The historic sharp down-turns appear to be roughly 50 years long. This means that we can expect to see the impending cooling to happen in the short span of the next 50 years. With the 4th down-step cycle already in progress since app. 2007 when the dramatic cooling of the Earth, and the weakening of the solar activity, had both began, we can expect the current trend to continue towards that, at least till app. 2050. (see: Ice Age Precursors - movie and transcripts - or the PDF version of the transcripts)
The projected near-term down-swing is critical for the whole world. The small down-step to the historic Little Ice Age had devastating consequence on agriculture in Europe. The resulting famines had wiped out 10% of the population in most countries, and up to 30% in some areas. It is unknown what effect the Little Ice Age had in North America, nor is it possible to foretell what the potential 3-fold deeper cooling will bring with it, and also whether the cooling will become more extensive before the 4th cycle bottoms out. (see: Can One be Certain About the Timing of the Near Ice Age?) All that we can do is to project forward the precursors that we already see.
The only certain factor, thus, in the entire subject is that we cannot afford the continued mythological dreaming that the interglacial will last for another thousand years or more, so that we can continue the present course of making no preparations for the transition sequence that has already begun.
Neither can we afford the luxury of building sky castles in the arctic, such as the 1960s NAWAPA project to divert rivers from Alaska to the southern U.S., as the high north is the first to be disabled by the transition that is now in progress. With the potential near-term cooling to three times colder than the Little Ice Age had been, Alaska will most likely remain a frozen snowball all year round in the near future.
Dynamics of change in a phase shift
With the return to the Pleistocene Ice Age climate that has the 'long-term' potential to be 30 times colder than the Little Ice Age had been, which had devastated Europe in its time, a systemic phase shift is now forced upon us, whether we like it or not, or whether it is politically expedient or not. It forces us to change, to change our economics, and especially how we perceive agriculture. It literally forces us to shift the bulk of our agriculture into the tropics where we can be certain that it will be secure. Forced depopulation is not an option on the road of protecting humanity. The only option that lies before us is to respond to the challenge with a renaissance style industrial revolution that gives us the power to place most of our agriculture afloat onto the tropical seas since there is little land area on our planet in the tropics. Fortunately we do have plenty of wide open space on the seas, even a stretch right along the equator that is free of the pesky hurricanes.
With a dynamic renaissance-style of an industrial revolution, which the systemic face-shift in the climate system is forcing on us, we will change the world more deeply by its imperative than anything ever had. It forces on humanity the most fundamental change in the entire history of civilization. (see: Dynamic Ice Age Renaissance - DIAR )
Of course, whether or not we realize the promise that we have in our hands to fulfill, and respond to its imperative in our time, is totally up to us. After all, we do have the option to stay asleep in our current mythological dreaming, and die in our dream. We choose this deadly path if we decide not to accept the challenge presented to us by the dynamic nature of the Universe, and decide not to respond to the phase-change that is laid before us to build ourselves a grander world than we have ever dreamed of, even a new dynamic renaissance world that fits the dynamic phase change that is now demanded, that we have the resources to fulfill already on hand.
The only thing that is certain therefore, on this front and in this context, is that if we will choose to move with the dynamics of an industrial-revolution renaissance, the age of empire, oligarchy, and its monetarism will have ended before the industrial revolution even begins. The nature of the phase change requires this of us as the first pre-requisite step to be taken, because nothing can follow if this step is not taken. For this reason the necessary step will be taken. Of course, if we, society, dream in our dreams that living isn't worth the bother, then, and only then, will we hesitate and not take a single step away from the path to hell.
If one considers the dynamics of the phase shift that has already begun, which is not small by any measure, which has its reflections already to some degree in the political arena, then we will not continue to hesitate as we do now, but we will find within us the power for the necessary first step to become completed in the immediate time ahead, so that the path to the future unfolds unobstructed as we move ahead.
Not to have a future is not a human choice!
Mysticism imposed by the Wellsian/Fabian doctrine
The science mysticism that blocks the path of science didn't happen by accident as one might think. The mysticism is intentional that is conjured up for society to accept a universe that is operating without the electric force, without the all-creative and all-powering cause of everything that is known to exist,. The intention has been spelled out already centuries ago, bright and clear, by such masters of empire as H. G. Wells, who had laid out the intention unmistakably in his novel The Time Machine.
In the novel a time-traveler encounters a decadent noble society that is serenely languishing in a world of ideal abundance. But he soon discovers a science-driven machine society that has created the cause for the noble creatures' abundance, and has done so for the purpose of using the noble creatures as food.
Well's implied message to the oligarchy was evidently understood, which threatened the oligarchy that if they don't keep science under wraps and small, confused, and ineffective, those science-driven machine oriented elements in society, the ordinary human people, will eat them all for breakfast. Against this background the Big Bang theory was invented that is totally gravity oriented as a blocking force to counter the then developing electric cosmology that was bright with a potential for infinite energy to meet society's energy needs for all times to come, which is as free as the air we all breathe.
If one erases from science the perception of the electromagnetic universal force, the only force and power that has the quality to be affective on the galactic and intergalactic, even cosmic, scale, then one has created a perfect foundation for a small-thinking humanity that is vulnerable to a wide range of galactic and apocalyptic mysticism. When truth is banned, mysticism always flourishes and soon reigns supreme, which induces into the mental landscape a vast sea of enslaving notions, such as fear that breeds impotence and irrational pursuits.
The Big Bang mysticism
Oh yes, the Big Bang theory is sheer mysticism. By it, as in ancient times, the Earth is deemed once more to be the center of the universe. This is what the myth tells us. It tells us that the entire universe around us, no matter where we look, is rapidly speeding away from us for the proof of it is indicated by the red-shift phenomenon.
A red shift results when a source of light is moving away from an observer, whereby the light-waves become 'stretched' and create a longer wave, causing the red shift. The same effect can also occur when energy is lost in the propagation process.
For example, when a stone is dropped into a pond it creates circles of ripples. The ripples are caused by the propagation of energy in the form of a pressure wave. The wave does not represent an actual flow of water away from the impact. Only the energy in the form of pressure moves along. The propagating pressure-energy of course diminishes with the square of the distance as it acts over a wider and wider area. While the amplitude of the propagating wave does not diminish in the same ratio, the energy difference appears to manifest itself as a longer propagation wave (longer waves correspond to lower energy levels).
The propagation of light is an electromagnetic process that reflects the propagation characteristic of cosmic space. The propagation characteristic defines the speed limit for light. It carries the ripples of light. If the propagation extends over a very long distance one can assume that the energy-loss in propagation is likewise reflected in longer waves resulting, rather than being primarily reflected in a loss of amplitude. Thus we can see the distant galaxies clear and bright, but with a red shift that is erroneously recognized as a sign of the galaxies speeding away from us.
The mysticism of a universe that is perceived as speeding away from us, subsequently requires other mysticisms to sustain the myth. It requires the myth of the Great Attractor at an infinite distance that speeds the expansion of the Universe, since the more distant galaxies have a greater red-shift, which is deemed to imply that their speeding away from us is constantly accelerating.
Thus mysticism, piled onto mysticism, obscures the real nature of the Universe. That the obscurity is evidently intended as a political ploy can be seen in the timing of the inception of the Big Bang theory.
The Big Bang theory was born in the shadow of the dawning electric cosmology that promised a real breakthrough in humanity's understanding of the Universe, and with it a momentous breakthrough in the scientific advances in recognizing the dynamics of the ice age cycles, and the availability for human use of the vast electric energy flows that power the cosmos, the galaxies, the solar system, our sun, and also the Earth, which we could potentially tap into via the ionosphere.
All of this is presently blocked by the advance of evermore mysticism, and especially by its removal of the electric force of the Universe from scientific consideration, so that nothing but the force of gravity remains for consideration, which of course is resulting in the consequent perception of a rather mythical universe.
The mysticism of the density wave
The density wave is another mythical construct to explain how an electricity-devoid universe can function, ruled by the mythical idea of gravity processing a galactic reach.
Under the density-wave theory the shape of the spirals that we behold as galaxies when we observe the Universe, are deemed not to really exist as we see them as physical structures, but are deemed to exist as waves of concentrations of orbiting stars. The waves are deemed to be caused by some form of gravity related resonance patterns.
It is hard to imagine how simple orbital resonance patterns can create such complex and totally irregular shapes as the galaxies we see throughout the universe, even the less complicated ones as that of NASA's image of Galaxy NGC 1300 shown above.
In considering the density wave myth, it appears that the imagination for mysticism has no limit. By it, however, a limit is forced upon science when the real forces of the Universe are stricken from consideration and the mystical, all-pervading gravity is put in its place.
Oh yes, H. G. Wells would be proud to see what has been achieved in modern time in terms of keeping science blinded and smothered with countless layers of myths.
Early and advanced recognitions
The perception of the electrically organized universe is actually not difficult. It is so simple in principle that it can also be found to some degree reflected in the mythological arena, as per the example below.
With the mysticism set aside, the galaxy was recognized as serpentine constructs of a flowing vortex of stars, like water flowing in vortex patterns along the bending riverbeds. The resulting construct comes remarkably close to what is now recognized in modern plasma physics, such as the concept attributed to the pioneer in plasma physics, the Nobel Laureate, Sweden's Hannes Olof Alfven
Alfven recognized in theory the system of a galaxy as a dynamically interacting electric structure of plasma currents. The correctness of his theory has been visually verified by NASA that was able to physically detect in the gamma-ray band the central plasma blooms extending from the center of our galaxy that should theoretically exist as a necessary feature of a functioning galaxy.
In this evidence the plasma physics model is verified. It is a simple model based on known principles in plasma physics that are actually verifiable in laboratory experiments.
In plasma physics, whenever an electric current flows, instantly a magnetic field develops around the current path. When the path happens to be in parallel wires, the wires attract each other. When the same happens in free-flowing plasma, the entire plasma stream pinches in onto itself, causing it to become condensed. The moment the current becomes condensed, the current flow is increased, its magnetic field thereby also becomes more concentrated, whereby the pinch effect is increased, and so on, and on, in an endless feedback with self-amplification of the process.
When there is sufficient 'pressure' in the system, the contraction in the plasma reaches a point beyond which it cannot be increased further. This is so, because at extremely close distances the plasma particles repel each other and create a bottleneck that starts a shock effect, which of course instantly diminishes the current flow. When this bottleneck happens the confining magnetic field collapses. As it collapses the bottled up energy explodes into space. It typically explodes perpendicular to the current flow as the backflow is blocked by the strong magnetic field adjacent to the shock point.
The main flow becomes 'inwards' directed at the shock points, by the magnetic barriers in a barred galaxy. Now with the electric currents weakened, the main-flow continues on and expands again. But while it is being fed from the outside, it grows stronger again and pinches once more towards a second shock front, causing a second kink. In this process that has two violent kinks in the current flow, the central bar slowly rotates as a unit. The bar is the only portion of a galaxy that does 'rotate' being driven by the electromagnetic force, producing the spiral shape.
The areas at the two shock fronts appear to be the main nuclear fusion region, and also the main star-forming region. Here the stars are forged in the 'fire' of intense electromagnetic interactions.
The above is a potential explanation for the phenomena that we see, probably one of many as the research is thin in this arena of science that is not 'allowed' to exist. Still we know that plasma kinks are widely common phenomena. In the example below countless shock-front situations are encountered in the current flow, as in electric arcing caused by a switch failure on a 500 KV transition line.
We also know that galaxies are electric phenomena by observing their shape as flat disk-like structures. Our own galaxy is 100,000 light years wide, but only 1000 light years thick.
When seen from its edge a galaxy is nothing more than a thin narrow strip surrounded by a field of electric energy and an encapsulating magnetic field that impinges on its structure from both sides and flattens it along the magnetic equator or ecliptic. For the Milky Way galaxy the effective impinging magnetic field is probably larger than the galaxy itself. No other force in the universe is known, other than the electromagnetic force, to have the power and reach to create and maintain these gigantic flattened structures, which all the galaxies are, regardless of their size.
The principle of the electromagnetic confinement of ecliptically aligned structures is also reflected in the flat ecliptic of our own solar system. If only the gravitational force would affect the orbits of the planets, the planets would likely be swirling around the Sun in every conceivable orbit. But this isn't happening.
All the planets are observed to be perfectly aligned to the Sun's magnetic ecliptic (not its spin axis, which is tilted by 7.25 degrees). Only the farther distant planets, past Neptune, are known to orbit on an ecliptic that is tilted away from the solar ecliptic, though still centered on the Sun.
The cone mysticism
An wlegant new science myth about our solar system has emerged that disputes the well-observed model of the flat-ecliptic system. The concept places the planets at the edge of a rotating cone-shaped vortex, with the Sun at the center of the vortex that itself is deemed to have a distant origin in the quadruple-star system of Polaris, 430 light years distant, in the Polaris constellation.
The cone concept of the solar system, with the planets being arranged in a vortex configuration, is a concept that would be logical in a gravity-only operated galaxy. In such a galaxy, the rotating super-massive black hole at the center of the galaxy--as the gravitational center of the galaxy--would have a gravitational hold on all the stars and speed them along in their orbit around the galactic center in a gravitational vortex. The Sun in turn, with its own gravity would pull the stars along behind it. The gravitational vortex concept of the Solar System was developed by the late, Dr. Keshava Bhat (1940-?), M. Sc., Ph.D. (overview here), of Manipal, India. The concept is described in the free book Helical Helix : Solar System a Dynamic Process, authored by Dr. Pallathadka Keshava Bhat of India (2008).
In a gravity-only galaxy the concept makes sense, but in an electrically organized universe none of the stars are isolated entities respond to a central force. In the electric galaxy all the star systems are bound together by the electromagnetic force the moves everything as essentially a single unit in and around the Birkeland currents in the spiral arms of the galaxy so that the local dynamic star systems are governed by their local forces, including the local electric forces. Within the vast arena of the galactic spiral arms, measured in thousands of light years in width, our solar system (0.002 light years in width) is but a tiny speck. Thus, the rather elegant cone concept of our solar system cannot apply here as the motivating force for such a vortex construct does not exist. Thus the higher hypothesis supersedes the one out-paced.
The nature of the cone concept of the solar system, as being a mythical concept, can be determined by known facts that dispute the validity of the cone theory. One is that the visual evidence does not support it.
The plane of the ecliptic, with the planets orbiting within the narrow range of an ecliptic 'disk' is well seen in this picture from the 1994 lunar prospecting Clementine spacecraft. Clementine's camera reveals (from right to left) the Moon lit by Earthshine, the Sun's glare rising over the Moon's dark limb, and the planets Saturn, Mars and Mercury (the three dots at lower left). (See: Ecliptic) If the cone structure was true, this photograph would not have been possible, which places the cone concept, as elegant as the reasoning is, into the realm of the mythical.
The slight offsets of the planets from the line of the ecliptic reflect the planet's differences in orbital inclination as shown in the table below (by Wikipedia).
These slight differences in orbital inclination are a feature of the electric system of the galaxy, because of the slight inefficiency in the dynamic system that flattens the orbits, which appears to be electric and magnetic in nature, acting from above and below in conjunction with the orbits, that too, appear to be electrically motivated.
At a greater distance past Neptune the orbits begin to incline more dramatically as is illustrated in the large attached map.
It is rather amazing how well the system functions that produces a flat ecliptic, which appears to be also reflected on the galactic plain. There too, it is amazing how perfectly flat the galaxies look when seen on edge, like a stick in the sky as seen in NASA's HST image of galaxy NGC5866 (repeated again).
Some form of electro-static and magnetic force squashes the galaxies flat, similar to the Alfven Model (below).
Evidently the same principle of electro-magnetic forces also squash the solar system 'flat' in which the sun's overall magnetic field and the solar winds as electric plasma play a role, acting from both sides onto the ecliptic. The centrifugal force of the orbits themselves, acting against gravity, does not force a flat ecliptic. The centrifugal orbits would, by themselves be oriented in all possible inclinations, instead just a single one. The cone theory offers a mechanistic answer to the singular inclination, but since the cone does not exist as the ecliptic is visually verifiable as being 'flat', electrodynamic principles offer the evident answer.
Another evidence against the cone theory is found in the fact that if the Sun was seen from 'below,' as the theory implies, from the steeply inclined vantage point at the edge of a 30 degree cone, the visual perspective of the Sun from the Earth would be totally different than the one that we see and find in our photographs of it. The electric activity bands around the Sun would look different.
The Sun is known to have two parallel bands of plasma currents offset from its equator, which are evident as bands in which the major solar activity occurs, both in the form of sunspots and x-ray intensity. While the activity spots in these areas vary within the bands, and the bands themselves shift relative to the equator with the progression of the solar activity cycle, the accumulation of the high intensity spots show the two bands to be clearly aligned with the solar equator. If we look at the bands with telescopes, both from earth or near-space, the evident perspective is, that we look at the bands from an ecliptic position.
If the bands were seen from the position of a cone extending from the Sun, the bands would be strongly curved. But this isn't what we see. The bands appear to us precisely as they would be seen head on from am ecliptic perspective. Thus the myth of a conical solar system reveals itself as lacking the vital element of truth by its divergence from visual evidence.
The lack of applicability of the cone-vortex theory to the solar system doesn't mean that the cone principle doesn't exist. It just doesn't apply to something as minuscule as our solar system.
The nebula shown here - located 8000 light years distant, has a cone type structure. However, it is roughly a thousand times larger than the solar system and exists as a double cone structure that is typical for extreme Birkeland current pinch effects. A similar case is the red rectangle nebula on the top of the page, which is roughly 300 times larger than the solar system. Both appear to be located in regions of extremely high plasma current density focused on the central sun, which is not evident in our Sun. Our Sun is just a mediocre star. The solar system is evidently far too minuscule to qualify for anything even remotely close to cone-type plasma structures.
My perception of the cone vortex concept is that it is a very elegant attempt to counter the gravity-only concept of cosmology that Dr. Bhat had recognized quite early to be incorrect and mythological and had attempted to construct an alternate concept away from gravity altogether. The cone concept offered a solution, like a light shining through a hole in a box, as he has illustrated. But with space technology, we are now able to see more. The resulting evidence doesn't seem to support the elegant concept. It will most likely be, as progress unfolds, that some aspects of our current perception will turn out to be mythological too.
The 2012 Apocalyptic Mysticism
Almost all galactic mysticism is apocalyptic in nature. It has become a kind of terrorizing force that renders a person or society impotent in the face of it. It has a disabling effect.
For its disabling effect on society, the 'mysticism' of terrorism has been instigated by empires to render the masses of humanity, or targeted groups, docile and readily controllable. Most forms of terrorism have a distinct mythic quality designed into them. The modern global warming terrorism falls into this type of category. The terror dogma states bluntly that the only ultimate solution to global warming is to get rid of most of the human population that is causing it. It doesn't seem to matter that there is no global warming happening. Nor does it seem the matter that humanity's minuscule activity is far from having the power to affect the vast energy arena of the global climate. These games are played up for the mysticism that is involved. It was evidently for the purpose of increasing the mysticism of the terror dogma, the game has been renamed from Global Warming to Climate Change. Climate change can mean anything. It is less identifiable. It is more mystical. The chosen bogyman in this case is carbon, which is basic to all life, so that no real solution is possible except to kill most of humanity. If this isn't terrorism, what is?
Mysticism is easily used for genocidal purposes. The global warming terrorism is used that way. In order to speed up the killing process the bogyman, named global warming, now mandates the mass-burning of food in the form of biofuels. The now diverted farm resources would normally feed 100 million people that are subsequently dying every year in our world that has a billion people living in chronic starvation. Each time you pull up to the gasoline pump, or board a bus, you add your mark to the silent holocaust, because 10% of the fuel that provides your mobility is made out of food.
Apocalyptic mysticism never has a real solution attached, much less a progressive one.
Religions are also easily used to inflict terrorism as doctrine, and sometimes less directly in the form of prediction of apocalyptic events as the end of the world, where only a few chosen can be saved who accept the faith, etc..
It would be surprising against this wide background of terrorism if the galaxy would not likewise be drawn into the game of apocalyptic terrorism, such as that of the bouncing-ball 62-million-year mass-extinction cycle theory referred to earlier.
A much simpler form of the same, which is likewise far removed from reality, is the prediction of 12-21-2012 end-of-the-world apocalypse, according to an interpretation of the Mayan calendar and a new world for those who survive. This particular mysticism is centered on a perceived event of galactic alignment.
According to the 2012 theory our solar system, and with it the Earth, will cross the galactic central plain on Dec. 21, 2012, where it is said the Earth will encounter cataclysmic forces emanating from the black hole that is deemed to reside in the central bulge of the galaxy. The prediction is made on the basis that our sun will be precisely aligned with the center of the galaxy at sunrise on the day of the winter solstice in the year 2012, which is the time the Mayan calendar ends.
The occurrence of the event has apparently been recognized by the Mayan civilization 3000 years ago, so that it has been chosen as a celestial reference point to base their calendar on. Now, in the age of apocalyptic mysticism this reference point has been rendered the basis of apocalyptic predictions that the Mayans had supposedly foreseen.
In real astrophysical terms no such alignment exists. The solar system won't be significantly closer to the galactic central plain that it is today. The present distance has been calculated as being in the range of 15 to 90 light years, and its movement at a speed of 250 km per second. At this speed, if it was on a direct approach, the solar system wouldn't cross the galactic plain for another 15,000 to 90,000 years, provided that it is moving towards it at all.
These simple facts make the 2012 date rather insignificant. All that happens in 2012 is that the Sun is observed to stand aligned with the galactic center at sunrise on the solstice day in 2012. The Sun has been approaching this visual alignment extremely slowly as the result of the Earth's 26,000-year cycle of the precession of the spin axis of the Earth. The advancing precession changes the tilt of the observational platform (the horizon) in respect to the cosmos. The slow, long-period precession, changes our perspective of the Sun in reference to the galaxy. The bottom line is that nothing more significant will happen on Dec. 21, 2012 than a visual alignment of two distant objects in space. If anything happens that day, it will happen as a consequence of heightened fear in society that tends to lead to irrational actions. Failures in perception can lead to tragedies.
The galactic-crisis myth
The bouncing-ball myth that is conjured up to create the 62-million year mass-extinction cycle apocalyptic predictions is nothing more than a similarly messed up narrow perception. It results in a crisis of perception. The imagined galactic crisis is not possible.
The myth renders the mass-extinction cycle as being critical in our time, but even by its own definition, the mythical alignment that is perceived is not really physically possible, is it? According to the bouncing ball theory the critical time is said to be when the solar system has risen to the edge of the galactic disc, or above it, where it becomes exposed to increased cosmic radiation that is deemed to flood the solar system emanating from the Virgo super cluster. This supposed critical position is far from being attained. Considering that the solar system is presently tugged deep below the surface of the galactic disk, at a distance of more than 400 light years from the 'surface', it would take the solar system half a million years to get to the surface if it was moving full speed away from the galactic plain. The observed position thereby places the solar system far away from the position that is deemed to be critical. It puts it far out of the range of imminent danger. Thus the galactic-crisis theory is a myth, and more than just a myth, like every other apocalyptic myth it is a form of terrorism.
The myth of a gravity-ruled world
The theory of gravity-ruled galaxy, too, is nothing more than just a myth. Still the myth threatens to have apocalyptic consequences. The myth bars from science the real operating factors that are located in electric cosmology. The myth thereby prevents the necessary perception of the ice age cycles dynamics. As a consequence society keeps on dreaming of its endless summer in an endless interglacial holiday from the normal glaciation climate.
In the spell of this blinding myth society may find itself inspired to construct the gigantic NAWAPA project to divert rivers from Alaska to irrigate parts of the southern deserts, only to realize afterwards, and too late, that the North becomes frozen over by the unfolding ice age dynamics, most likely before the NAWAPA system becomes even operational. In this case 50 years of effort would have been wasted, which should have been directed instead towards creating a new agricultural resource in the tropical regions, afloat on the oceans if need be.
In this sense, a blinding myth can have real apocalyptic consequences without an apocalyptic cause involved, which in all the other cases of the mythical apocalyptic projections are merely threatened, but never come true.
The myth of the static universe
The static myth, too, is a critical one. We live in a dynamic universe, not in a static one that is never changing. Just as the fog of the mysticism of the gravity-only cosmology has smothered the advance of science and buried the future of humanity beneath an avalanche of irrational ideologies that are designed to keep a dying oligarchic system alive that has no real basis to exist, so, in like manner, has the myth of a static universe create a choking haze across the intellectual, cultural, environmental, and scientific landscape.
The myth of universal staticism is most glaringly evident in the cosmology regarding our solar system. The general perception is that our solar system has been essentially the same for billions of years in the form that we see today, with the Sun as its 'mother' and all the planets having their origin rooted in the Sun, such as by having popped out of the Sun, or having been 'condensed' from the materials of a vast solar accretion disk like the rings of Saturn. But if one looks closer at the evidence, a startling fact is staring one in the face, according to which the static theory could not possibly be true.
The astonishing fact is that the planets are so vastly different in their composition, density, and spin axis orientation that they cannot logically be regarded as 'children' of the same 'mother.' Just look at the data, it speaks for itself.
Original published by the Astronomical Society of the Pacific (1983)
The large differences between the planets in all respects suggests that they all had separate origins are brought together as 'collectania' acquired by the Sun over the course of its billions of years, with the Earth included as possibly the latest addition to the collection.
It has been suggested that the Earth may have been acquired at first by a brown dwarf star and had developed its explosion of life in the perpetual sunshine beneath a luminous heliosphere, until the brown-star system was acquired by the Sun. While such an idea appears totally mythical, more evidence supports it than stands against it. Survey's conducted in dense star clusters found the brown dwarves to be more numerous than the regular stars, and also found that more of the bright stars have split into multiples of two, three, and four, than were found existing as singular stars. The split up might have resulted from processes of mergers.
The merger of a star system is not a trivial matter. If the Earth was acquired, it and its previously hosting sun would have to pass through the Oort Cloud. The Oort Cloud is not held by gravity, but appears magnetically held and its objects repelled by the static electric force that keeps everything within it diffused. The Oort Cloud may be seen as the solar equivalent of the Earth's magnetosphere and plasma sphere combined with a highly charged electric environment.
The sun of an acquired brown-dwarf solar system would be electrically disintegrated in its passing through the cloud, and its associated, dense and heavy planets would become electrically scarred, rather than being impacted by the cloud's objects. This is what appears to have happened to the Earth and to Mars.
Enormous electric 'scars' are known to have occurred in the time frame of the extinction of the dinosaurs roughly 65 million years ago. One of the scars has caused the eruption of the gigantic flood basalt 'volcanic' event that created the North Atlantic Igneous Province, a spread of 1.3 million cubic kilometers of basalt (lava) flowing across the earth's surface. The other electric scarring event in the same timeframe, this time in India, produced a slightly smaller scar that caused the gigantic basalt eruption that formed the Deccan Traps, a flood basalt event that covered a large chunk of central India. It spread lava across half a million square kilometers. A third giant discharge event of this timeframe has excavated the 300 Km wide Chicxulub Crater at the coast of the Yucatan in Mexico. A similar event, that might also have occurred in the same timeframe, may have carved the Grand Canyon in Arizona, a type of carving that we see in a larger form on Mars, as the much larger Grand Canyon of Valles Marineris, which may have been carved in a similar manner by the planet passing through the Oort Cloud. (see: The Grand Canyon: Part One - The Grand Canyon: Part Two - The Thunderbolt that Changed the Face of Mars )
According to an article, Apr 05, 2007 -The Mystery of Chicxulub Crater - the evidence that gigantic electric discharge events occurred is spread across the world in the form of a band of iridium at the extinction line of the dinosaurs. When electric currents impact, which are far longer-lasting than meteor-impact forces, the discharge currents would melt large amounts of material that formed vast clouds of spherules, a key signature of electrical discharge events. "More than 99 percent of the global iridium layer is made up of spherules--droplets that condensed from vaporized rock. Only the remaining 1 percent of the debris consisted of rock pulverized directly into dust. The spherule-producing ability of discharges has been demonstrated in lab experiments. Also, the electromagnetic pinch effect in a discharge channel can generate extremely large pressures, sufficient to shock quartz crystals. The axial acceleration of the discharge will pull debris away from the surface and high into the atmosphere, even into space..."
Another point to consider is that the effective gravity on the Earth appears to have changed by the acquisition event. The evidence is found in the dinosaurs. Some gigantic species of them existed that would dwarf a man to appear like an 'ant' in comparison, with the largest estimated to have weighed up to 240 tons.
It is unlikely that creatures of the size and weight of a 747 jumbo jet could have been supported on two legs while walking on the Earth, yet these creatures are known to have walked on land and in herds. Bone doesn't withstand the resulting compression force. However, if the Earth's effective gravity had been less during its time with a smaller sun, such giant's might well have roamed the Earth. The force of gravity might not be a universal constant as it is regarded today.
The point is that life on earth has gone through some large dynamic systemic changes. The evidence before us supports the basic solar acquisition theory, as crazy as such a theory may appear. Of course we will never know for certain what really happened. We only see numerous types of evidence, which when brought together can be seen as pointing towards some form of acquisition theory.
If an acquisition would have occurred, a huge phase change would have been imposed on the Earth's living system. If such a thing happened, which appears more likely than not, nothing would have remained the same on the Earth afterward, and nothing evidently did. A total transformation of life on earth began at the boundary of the catastrophic events that caused the extinction of the dinosaurs. A large body of evidence exists for that too. Numerous deep changes occurred.
Ironically, the catastrophic events that would have occurred during the acquisition might have saved life itself on our planet. The energy that would have been unleashed by the enormous electric and volcanic events and the 'dust' clouds that would have resulted, would likely have trapped the generated heat within the atmosphere, and thereby would likely have prevented the Earth from becoming a giant snowball during the decades the Earth would have been without a sun until it found its place in the solar system near its new star.
My point is that an enormous phase change occurred in the environment on earth, which the dinosaurs lacked the ability to respond to. And my related point is that humanity is facing a similar phase change right now with the ice age transition already in progress. While humanity has the resources and the intelligence to respond to the phase change before it, it chooses to dream that it lives in an unchanging, endless interglacial summer. The myth of staticism has put our head into the sand. We say we cannot respond; it is too impractical; too expensive; too idealistic; too irrational.
In support of the myth of staticism stands the obvious fact that the entirety of civilization developed in the tiny short space of the interglacial period, where nothing has essentially changed. Humanity has experienced nothing else since civilization began, than this wonderful holiday from the Pleistocene Ice Age Climate, the 'summer' that never ends. Well, the end is near. Ironically, we face it as dumb as the dinosaurs. We see the precursors stare us in the face and we deny them as being but ripples of the mythical galactic crisis of the 62-million year mass-extinction cycle that we say has gone critical, while no such galactic extinction cycles actually exist, as each mass extinction event that is known to have occurred, appears to have had its own unique cause, rather than a cyclical cause.
The mythical arena without dynamic phase changes
Progress takes off human shackles, but all too often we refuse to let them go. We hold onto them tightly at all cost. A notable example is the NAWAPA project developed in the 1960s for the 1960s, which is once again being promoted. It was a good project in the 1960s, but it is so no longer, because the world has changed; technologies have changed; the needs of society have changed; and our capabilities have changed.
In the 1960s the USA was the most highly developed industrial society in the world with an economic strength that could have carried this kind of 50-year infrastructure construction project without the least bit of strain. But we live in a different world now. America's industries have collapsed; its economic strength has been destroyed; the onset of the ice age transition has begun and is already devastating the food supply with massive snowfalls in the north, flooding in the great river basins, drought conditions in the south. While NAWAPA was designed to address the food challenge to some degree, the changing landscape has made it imperative that corrective solutions be applied now, not 50 years in the future.
The point is that the corrective solutions can be applied now if there is a willingness to let go of the outdated, low-technology, inefficient concepts for a solution.
The 1960s NAWAPA no longer meets the raised-bar requirements that a modern phase change is imposing. The old NAWAPA is hopelessly inefficient. It no longer passes the test of the least action principle, which is the most basic principle that is universally expressed in nature. It stands out as the very opposite in an age where advanced technologies can provide more efficient solutions.
The 1960s NAWAPA requires an enormous effort for rather little in return, while high-technology solutions offer far greater effects towards achieving the goal, and with far less effort, and also with a speedier implementation time. The high-tech solutions didn't exist in the 1960s, but they exist now. Their availability has caused a phase change in how the least action principle applies to the sought solutions. It is no longer necessary now for the NAWAPA solutions to be realized, to the divert small river from Alaska south across 2,000 miles of mountains, when modern technologies make it possible to divert the outflow of much larger and closer rivers in arteries afloat in the oceans to shores near where the need for fresh water exists, which then can be pumped to wherever it is required via a nuclear powered distribution pipeline system.
The use of automated high-temperature industrial processes centered on the high temperature Molten Salt Thorium Reactor for the production of basalt products, has the potential to create the kind of industrial revolution that is easily capable to supply the needed infrastructure components for a high-tech approach to the NAWAPA goals, and as a sideline it is also able to produce the needed human components for civilization such as a revolution in housing availability by simply providing the needed housing for free as an extended basic credit for creating an advancing civilization.
The idea of a "credit society" as long been promoted by the American economist and statesman, Lyndon LaRouche, towards a dynamic phase change away from monetarism and predatory oligarchism. The American nation itself, as a Union of a higher level of civilization, was to a large degree rooted on the liberating experience of the credit society principle, pioneered in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in the mid-1600s, which offered for the first time in history a breakout phase-change in the form of a practical alternative to imperial monetarism. The "credit society" technology hadn't been invented before. Then, suddenly for the first time in history, it made the breakout from empire and its predatory monetarism, possible. The experience in the Bay Colony marks what may someday be recognized as the greatest phase change in the history of civilization. It offered a new system of economic technology that had ever existed before in a clearly defined and well-proved manner.
Once society is able to acknowledge to itself that it has a vast revolutionary capably at hand, it may be willing at last to let go of the old mysterious "world-without-change" notion that had existed before the phase change in technological progress began, both physically and economically. But the phase change is now here and has the power to cause a secondary phase change in the efficiency and quality of civilization. Without the resulting double phase change on whole front and in all essential aspects, we may never meet the ice age challenge that now lies before us.
The dynamic power of ideas to raise the bar
Ideas are dynamic. No mathematical formula can describe their unfolding, their creative power, and their energy in advancing human progress. Ideas are not mechanistic that would tie them to stereotyped processes, politics, conventions, or even tradition. Ideas are without mass, without inertia. Unfolding advanced ideas can change the world with their invisible substance. Ideas power progress. Processes rarely do this, though they implement and facilitate progressive ideas. Nor are ideas static. They never leave the world where they find it. Like terrorism has a negative and disabling effect on society, the power of advanced truthful ideas can have an uplifting and liberation effect, often far beyond expectation.
For example, almost within a week after I had completed my movie, Ice Age Climate Change Precursors, and was working on my second movie, Ice Age Breakout, the arrest of the head of the IMF, Strauss Kahn, occurred. The arrest occurred at this specific time, which for a period stopped the greatest financial bailout train in history that had cost the American society tens of trillions of dollars by this time. Can one assume by the timing the existence of a coincidence between the political event that gave society a brief spell of freedom, and the exploration of humanity's freedom in the face of the ice age challenge? Logic would dictate that no such coincidence is possible or happened as no direct link exists, but where lies the boundary to support such an assertion? We simply don't know how ideas purport themselves. Nor will we ever know what the world might have been like if certain actions hadn't been taken that have been taken.
A second example of this type may be the occurrence within a couple of weeks of some rather intense work on my part on a series of 4 articles*1 on the principles of world development, leadership, and self-leadership, that a great revolutionary political shift in Russia occurred that caused the bailout-happy finance minister of Russia to be fired, as simultaneously Vladimir Putin asserted his leadership of Russia with his 2012 Presidential bid. This single move in Russia, all by itself, represents an enormous phase change on the political landscape of Russia and the world. Again, is there a connection possible between the intense work to explore advanced concepts of civilization, and the unfolding new landscape in Russia that reflects that direction? Here again, logic would say no, but can one be certain? Ideas can cause ripples far and wide, especially in the age of the internet that facilitates instant global communication.
The point is that it is tempting for a society that has been trapped into the fog of their self-assumed impotence to ignore the dynamics of their own power to change the landscape of the world with advanced ideas, and thus to just sit back complaining. On the static platform mired in assumed individual impotence nothing ever gets done and civilization dies.
In responding on the subject why political leaders don't stand up boldly for universal principle, but compromise with what is practical, and don't say and do the right thing that scientific honesty requires, I replied to the questioner that this is so because society itself has not raised the bar high enough, for itself, so that it becomes possible and practical for their leaders to say the things that ideally should be said, and to implement them. Society blames the leaders for failures in civilization, and rarely ever recognizes its own responsibility for the status of civilization.
As it is, this long-static scene is now changing. For example, the movement that is gaining momentum to reinstate the Glass Steagall legislation, which had been designed to separate and protect commercial banking from predatory financial enterprises that have taken over the banking scene, is in its pursuit still basically promoting a compromise position, the separation of production from looting. A principle oriented society should not be happy with such a compromise on principle. Predatory financial gambling is not compatible with civilization. The two are opposites. Society should not compromise by allowing a thief to operate in the citadel of its civilization. It is interesting to note in this context that in his weekly report on Sept. 28, 2011 Lyndon LaRouche demanded categorically, in connection with the Glass Steagall re-instatement drive, that there shall be no more compromise, no more gambling is to be allowed. That's a phase change beyond the concept of separation and toleration. The movement of some advanced idea in some flow of progressive unfoldment evidently had made it possible for such a forceful statement to be heard, and thus to be made loud and clear. The idea of no compromise was implied all the way back to LaRouche's historic proposal for a "Homeowner and Bank Protection Act" in 2007, which numerous county, city, and State legislatures had supported, and overwhelming so in many cases, while it had never been said, to my knowledge, as forcefully that there shall be no more compromise, no more speculation, no more gambling, as LaRouche said it in his weekly report on Sept. 28, 2011.
The Universe is not mechanistic, but dynamic
On the cosmic scene the operating force is electrodynamic. Its principles are universal, known, and knowable. The principles separate cosmic mysticism from fact. The human scene should reflect the same type of dynamics in the realm of ideas. The mysticism of compromise on principle for the sake of practicality should be ushered out of the citadel of civilization, together with the leaders in high positions of power who have not earned their right to be there, but should be let go for reasons of their perverse actions in following so many mysticisms that are plainly detrimental to civilization, like the mysticism of empire and oligarchic monetarism. No compromise should be allowed on this frontier of civilization.
Since we all, humanity, are a part of the Universe, its principles are not too distant from our heart and soul that the equivalent of these principle in civilization are not known and knowable to us. Thus, as the fog is gradually lifting, the age of compromises is ending, including the age of the most devastating compromise a society can possibly commit, which is the compromise that allows an oligarchic system to exist within its fabric of civilization. According to all evidence the days of these compromises are getting fewer. A dynamic movement is unfolding in the world with endless possibilities to become implemented.
We are near a universal systemic phase shift
The 1960s NAWAPA will never be built as the result of the now unfolding systemic phase shift that totally changes the human geography in the world. The oligarchic system has reached an advanced state of self-collapse. In the shadow of this collapse the nations of the world will shed their chains that bind them to empire. The phase shift will change the political scene; the Glass Steagall firewall will be enacted and expanded to include the blocking of oligarchic looting and predation of any kind. A national credit system will then replace the dead corpse of the present monetarist system. But most of all in the wake of the new freedom, as chains will be shed, the chains that have rendered the sciences mythical, small, and useless, will fall. When this happens the electric cosmology will be allowed to come to the surface, and with it the scientific recognition of the ice age dynamics will be developed with an understanding of the early phases of the ice age transition that has already begun.
Against this background the northern NAWAPA will not be built; instead of it, a redirected version will be built that focuses southward onto the tropics where the world's food security lies in the coming glaciation climate. It is presently only the imperial chokehold on science, with its imposed mysticism, that prevents this natural recognition from being made. With the chokehold on science removed, the right development of the world will begin towards a dynamic new renaissance in which the common aims of mankind will be met, such as with sufficient food for all, efficient universal free housing as a first step for mobilizing the human potential, and free healthcare added and free education, which are all "credit investments" for the future on the road towards a richly functioning developing world.
Endless horizons in the post-mythical world
With the chokehold on science becoming removed the entire oligarchic system will vanish. The productive power of humanity will quickly become so great that the northern intercontinental link across the Bering Strait via a sub-oceanic tunnel will become redundant fairly quickly and would be laid aside as an inefficient link across a snow-bound wilderness, and would be replaced by the tropical bridges where the center of world development will become located to.
But most important of
all, with the chokehold on science removed, the technology will be quickly
developed for accessing the vast electric energy resource that surrounds our
planet, which presently, through the ionosphere as an interface, powers only the
global system of lightning, tornadoes, and hurricanes. The technology for
accessing the vast energy resource for human use, that has so far only been
prevented by mysticism, promises to revolutionize productive economics,
building a dynamic renaissance erected on the platform of boundless energy-flux-density, as the American
leading economist and statesman Lyndon LaRouche has long proposed as being necessary
for the future development of humanity.
The greatest future that has ever been imagined now lies before us,
a future that is powered by the inexhaustible electric energy resources that the
electric galaxy provides in which we live. Yes, H. G. Wells would die a second death in his grave if he
ever could realize what great potential humanity now has before it, as it stands at
the threshold of the greatest phase change with its sciences fully unchained.
