The Plasma Universe

The Northern Lights: Plasma in action

At first, many of us are surprised to learn about the ‘fourth state’ of matter; Plasma.

Plasma can be described as ionized gas, and makes up 99% of all matter in the Universe. It is an excellent conductor of electricity. Considering that electro-magnetic forces are many orders of magnitude stronger than Newton’s gravitational force, perhaps it is high time to ask,

“Could gravity be totally inadequate to explain the beautiful galaxies and superclusters we see in the sky?”

Put simply & emphatically, the answer is “YES”

We already know that the puny force of gravity can’t hold galaxies together or account for galaxy cluster formation. That’s why they invented “dark matter.”

In observations of a nearby cluster of galaxies named the Coma cluster, Swiss astronomer Fritz Zwicky calculated that the collective mass of the galaxies was not nearly enough to hold them together in their orbits.

Later, in the 1970’s and ’80’s, Vera Rubin similarly found that the arms of spiral galaxies should fly off their cores as they are orbiting much too quickly.

‘Dark matter’ is nothing more than a cosmological fudge factor, invented to patch up a gaping hole in gravitation-centric theory, by postulating an unobserved and untestable entity and liberally sprinkling it everywhere that gravitational math doesn’t add up.

A better answer is Anthony Peratt’s PIC (Particle-in-Cell) simulation which takes naked electrical forces (10^36 times more powerful than gravity) as a starting point and matches morphology and quite probably rotation curves as well. No new physics or untested hypothetical entities are required.

Plasma clouds trapped in parallel magnetic filaments simulate evolving galaxy formations, without the need for dark matter, dark energy or black holes.

In the wake of recent discoveries, a new way of seeing the physical universe is emerging. The new vantage point emphasizes the role of electricity in space and shows the negligible contribution of gravity in cosmic events.

Images returned by high-powered telescopes and recent space probes have challenged astronomers’ long-standing assumptions about galaxies and their constituent stars, about the evolution of our solar system, and about the nature and history of Earth.

The focus on the electrical nature of our Universe is a massive step in the right direction.

In science today, the “generally accepted conclusions” are routinely presented as inarguable “facts”. From the Big Bang, to the evolution of planets, from the nature of comets, to highly speculative and hidden phenomena such as black holes, dark matter, and dark energy, the big cosmological picture is presented with such confidence that the Media in this country have almost never questioned it. But the picture may be much less clear than we have been led to believe. Far removed from the spotlight of scientific media, critics have suggested that a single, fundamental error has infected the theoretical sciences.

This error is the notion that the Universe is electrically neutral – that electricity does not “do anything” in space. It is a perverse stance given the overwhelming importance of electricity in our lives.

The most dramatic recent discoveries have consistently challenged the interpretations of conventional theorists on this point. At the same time, these discoveries have fostered considerable interest in an alternative hypothesis – the Electric Universe.

Bring on that new generation.

  1. OL, you’re a hard man.

    Now you’re telling us that the scientific truth of CAGW, as viewed by Planck, means that all the green zealots will have to die-out, forever unconvinced and taking their mad theories with them and we won’t even be around to say “We told you so“……LOL ….. Bugger.

    Let’s hope that new generation gets enough science education to consign phony post-normal science to the dust-bin of history.

    As for the Electric Cosmos, I’m still working my way through it but I’m in danger of my brains oozing out of my ears so I think I’ll join you in a whiskey instead……..Cheers.

  2. LOL if Plank’s right then yes it’ll be a long wait & we’ll all be in the ‘other place’. hehe
    Mind you, our comments & posts will remain on the internet somewhere……posterity will know that not everyone was fooled in the ‘Age of Stupid’.

  3. Admin Thank you for ‘The Plasma Universe’ and in particular ‘The Electric Sky’ which during the last two days has expanded my knowledge of our skies one hundredfold.

    I see this almost the same as when plate tectonics became accepted and all the text books had to be re-written. The Electric Plasma theory seems so logical and credible as opposed to the original gravity only theory and it can only be a matter of time before it becomes accepted.

    I also see great parallels with the AGW nonsense as the proponents seek ever more obscure reasons to justify their claims, but in the same way eventually the weight of evidence will become overwhelming and the AGW scam will be consigned to history.

    Clearly despite all our technology and instruments in both cases we have a lot to learn about having an open mind about the interpretation of the results obtained and subsequent analysis. Unfortunately we live in a world where funding pre-empts the logic and the outcome of our science.



    I have read all the science books
    Stared at all the wiggly graphs
    I have studied all the holy books
    And had a lot of laughs

    In the beginning, so the story goes
    There was an almighty big bang
    In what though?
    No one really knows

    Is this really how it all began
    From imaginary nothingness
    Into a universal span
    Or is it just presumptuous

    The arrogance of man
    Gravity misunderstood
    Or just a cunning plan
    So far, not so good

    Best guesses big messes
    Fudge the data to fit fine
    Eureka and successes
    Dark matter bull $hit shine

    Maxwell has been hidden
    Einstein has been pushed
    Tesla now almost forgotten
    Hawkins perhaps ambushed

    The history of science is a mess
    The science of history is no test
    Very often the truth is suppressed
    Lest the elite be shortly dispossessed


  5. Hawkwind – Quark, Strangeness And Charm

    (Brock / Calvert)

    Einstein was not a handsome fellow
    nobody ever called him Al
    he had a long moustache to pull on
    it was yellow
    I don’t believe he ever had a girl
    one thing he missed out in his theory
    of time and space and relativity
    is something that makes it very clear he
    was never gonna score like you and me
    he didn’t know about

    quark strangeness and charm
    quark strangeness and charm
    quark strangeness and charm
    quark strangeness and charm

    I had a dangerous liason
    to be found out would have been a disgrace
    we had to rendezvous some days on
    the corner of an undiscovered place
    we got sick of chat chat chatter
    and the look upon everybody’s face
    But all that does not not anti-matter
    now we found ourselves a black hole out in space
    and we’re talking about

    quark strangeness and charm
    quark strangeness and charm
    quark strangeness and charm
    quark strangeness and charm

    here it comes it goes quark quark

    quark now

    Copernicus had those renaissance ladies
    crazy about his telescope
    and Galileo had a name that made his
    reputation higher than his hope
    did none of those astronomers discover
    while they were staring out into the dark
    that what a lady looks for in her lover
    is charm strangeness and quark

    quark strangeness and charm X 13

    here it comes quark quark

    Happy new year all.


  6. Howdy I’m so grateful I found your blog -by accident- while I was searching for 3d tv’s of all things! Regardless I am here now and would just like to say many thanks for an incredible post and an all-round entertaining blog. I’ve long thought there was a problem with modern cosmology, and now I’m off to research more on this Electric Universe hypothesis.

    Please do keep up the excellent work.
