Electromagnetism invades all walks of life. It permeates inventions, discoveries in electronics; and revolutionary use of crystalline and silicone technology has brought it into the mainstream where it now affects all strata of world culture.
Yet behind the scenes, we know that its ephemeral nature — its very essence as a ‘force’ on Earth — makes it fragile and open to disruption by an even greater electromagnetic source — that powering our Sun.
The Superstorm of September 1859 known as the Carrington Event is often quoted as earth’s worst magnetic storm, when the planet passed through a solar particle storm (coronal mass ejection, CME) lasting a week. Most of middle N.America was without rudimentary communication; telegraph systems worldwide were disrupted; spontaneous fires broke out. If such an Event were to happen now, there would be complete electronic blackout: hitting communications satellites, GPS; knocking out high-frequency radio communications which airplanes use to fly polar routes; overload electrical grids and blow out transformers, i.e. geo-collapse.
Much recent work by the Thunderbolts Project, glowing from their January 6-8, 2012 Conference, has shed light on electromagnetic powering of stars and galaxies. Key points of their theory give weight to an Electric Universe over one dominated by gravity and black holes:
Electricity now seen to play a more significant role in the Universe than previously accepted;
Sun and stars electrically powered by drift currents (Electric Connection)
Planetary surface features like craters, dendritic structures and rilles caused by super-lightning (electrical scarring)
Certain cosmic phenomena are electrical in nature, including:
Comet tails (electric comets)
The plumes of Enceladus
Martian dust devils
Galaxy formation and dynamics — circumventing the need for black holes and dark matter
Electricity and Magnetism as Waves of Light
B1509 pulsar called The Hand of God
In 1860 a 30-year old Scot at Cambridge, James Clerk Maxwell, discovered that the interplay between vibrating magnetic and electric fields created a wave.
He found that electric or magnetic fields alone could not create a wavelike motion; only the delicate interplay between electric and magnetic fields could produce this special wave.
At the time the universe as Man knew it consisted of Newtonian gravity, the four elements of alchemy and the metaphysical belief in ethers surrounding Earth. Space was the unknown frontier, a vast unexplored vacuum. Yet Maxwell proposed these waves operated in that void.
“To most physicists Maxwell’s idea seemed preposterous because there was no ‘ether’ to conduct these waves. Maxwell’s fields were ‘disembodied’ and moved by themselves, without a conducting medium.” Michio Kaku ‘Beyond Einstein: Cosmic Quest for A Theory of the Universe’, 1995.
Maxwell discovered light was made up of electric fields (E) and magnetic fields (B) which oscillate in unison --electric fields vibrate vertically, magnetic fields horizontally
was undaunted. Using his equations to calculate, he found he was able to derive a specific number for the speed of this wave. He was astonished to find it was the speed of light. Light was revealed as a series of electric fields chained and interconnected with — and turning into — magnetic fields. Maxwell had accidentally discovered that his equations unraveled the nature of light as an electromagnetic wave.
Theory of Everything
His revelation was the first unified field theory — affectionately called the TOE: Theory of Everything.

Ever since Maxwell’s ground-breaking work, Light has been seen as the electro-magnetic force, created by vibration of electric and magnetic fields rapidly turning into each other;
RADAR, ULTRAVIOLET, INFRARED, RADIO, MICROWAVES, TELEVISION and X-RAYS
are intertwined and speed-linked forms taken by the electromagnetic wave.
Electric Universe theory supported by the inter-disciplinary Thunderbolts Project has built on the work begun by Maxwell; expanded and expounded by Albert Einstein’s phenomenal mind; triggered by quantum theory. Like its sister, Stanford prof. Leonard Susskind’s Holographic Universe Theory, which also defies the old ‘black-hole model’, EU’s proponents are excited by unprecendented confirmations of their original predictions.
Recent EU predictions are confirmed by mainstream astrophysicists using ever-complex telescope technology not available in Maxwell’s time, but now able to detect electrical activity throughout the Universe.
Supernova 1987A in the Magellanic Cloud, closest supernova event (169,000 light years distant) since the invention of the telescope, exhibits massive electrical discharges from its central star
“The EU model has brought vastly more success than those from the mainstream. For instance, no one can argue that the ‘astonishing’ outburst of Comet Holmes 17P was ‘predictable’ nor even understandable by mainstream scientists. There are many other recent data and discoveries: from the validation of the electric Sun/Earth connection, to the observation of ‘impossibly’ huge cosmic ‘voids’, to the ongoing ‘mystery’ of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays… to anomalous (i.e. electrical) space weather. We are seeing precisely what one should expect if the predominant force in the heavens is electricity, not gravity”
Michael Goodspeed, Electric Universe Predictions

A massive and graphic example of classic electrical discharge and stranding from a star is Supernova 1987A, above and left — the closest supernova event to happen in our skies since the invention of the telescope. First seen in February 1987 in the Magellanic Cloud, our dwarf companion galaxy to the Milky Way 169,000 light years from Earth, its discharges have increased and brightened since its discovery.
“Close observation since its appearance in 1987 provides proof that supernovae are catastrophic electrical discharges focused on a star.” Thunderbolts Project
GEO600 gravitational wave detector, Sarstedt, Germany picks up strange sounds
Meanwhile German scientists have been trying to understand why their equipment measuring gravitational waves is picking up strange sounds.
Craig Hogan, professor of astronomy and physics, U.Chicago and director of Fermilab’s Center for Particle Astrophysics in Batavia, Illinois feels GEO600 has stumbled upon the fundamental limit of space-time –- the point where space-time stops behaving like the smooth continuum Einstein described and instead dissolves into ‘grains’, just as a newspaper photograph dissolves into dots as you zoom in.
Prof. Craig Hogan, UChicago and Director of FermiLab
“It looks like GEO600 is being buffeted by the microscopic quantum convulsions of space-time.
“If the GEO600 result is what I suspect it is, then we are all living in a giant cosmic hologram.
“The idea that we live in a hologram probably sounds absurd, but it is a natural extension of our best understanding of black holes, and something with a pretty firm theoretical footing. It has also been surprisingly helpful for physicists wrestling with theories of how the universe works at its most fundamental level.” Craig Hogan, Director FermiLab.
These holograms can be imagined like those on credit cards and banknotes etched on two-dimensional plastic film. When light bounces off them, it recreates the appearance of a 3D image. In the 1990s physicists Leonard Susskind and Nobel prizewinner Gerard ‘t Hooft suggested that the same principle might apply to the universe as a whole, see above and here. These physicists explain that our everyday experience might itself be a holographic projection of physical processes taking place on a distant, 2D surface.
Controversy still surrounds electrical activity powered by our own Sun. Aurora (borealis and australis) are accepted as electromagnetic phenomena occurring at the poles following a solar flare; electrically-charged plasma can knock out power lines and wreak havoc in city distribution grids; but still the person-in-the-street does not look upon the sun as an electromagnetic engine capable of causing seismic disturbance (potentially on a vast scale) on our little terrestrial globe.
All this week Earth inhabitants are being rocked within a huge radiation storm of M-class and X-class flares — an electromagnetically-charged curtain of particles which left the Sun last Friday. Spectacular auorae confirmed NOAA’s Solar and Geomagnetic Field Indicator (right sidebar bottom) flashing Flare/Orange Storm/Red.
SpaceWeather and NASA upgraded their warning to M-9 class flare (threshold X-flare, the largest), since a further CME erupted from the Sun yesterday. Its leading edge hit Earth one hour later and, as it continues through the solar system, it will strike Mars January 25th. This radiation storm comes with a punch. It shot earthwards at 4million mph, much faster than the usual CME, catching up with its predecessor in one day. Some southern US states have suffered electronic failure.

NASA’s Goddard Space Center is monitoring this particular solar storm
carefully as it has a triple payload: electromagnetic radiation is followed by radiation in the form of protons. Then the CME —- plasma from the sun itself — provides the backlash. This makes the geomagnetic field wobble and shake and scatters electromagnetic currents everywhere. It is plasma which can cause electrical grid malfunction. Goddard helio-physicists are following closely as increasing activity confirms the sun’s move from an 11-year solar minimum towards solar maximum
According to Goddard analysts, Friday’s CME strongly compressed Earth’s magnetic field and briefly exposed satellites in geosynchronous orbit to solar wind plasma. Earth’s magnetic field continues to reverberate from the impact, with further buffeting expected. Arctic aurorae have been spectacular.

You know you are a powerful creator if you choose to use your power: power based in your heart — the power of healing emotion Gregg Braden, The Divine Matrix
In the electronic revolution internet sites have sprung up all over declaring that 2012 brings about the end of the world.
Others that, through our inner looking glass, we will rebirth whatever we conceive heaven to be — and make it manifest.
Still others rebel against the Old Guard, denouncing corrupt rulers. Like the Roman Decline, their Empire is tottering, crashing, while the people feast and fest: bread and circuses; football and Olympic Games.
‘Now that no one buys our votes, the public has long since cast off its cares; the people that once bestowed commands, consulships, legions, and all else, now meddle no more and long eagerly for just two things — bread and circuses’
Juvenal — Decimus Junius Juvenalis AD55-127
Just as Nero (AD37-68) was chastised for fiddling while Rome burned, the RichList are now being questioned for their jetset behaviour.
THE LAW OF ATTRACTION
Esther Hicks continues to bring the Law of Attraction to a mass audience
Among the plethora of New Age guidance and self-help gurus suggesting we listen to our inner voice is Esther Hicks, 64, recently widowed, life-partner of Jerry, soul-partner of ‘Abraham’ — her off-planet/oversoul voice that she shares with millions. Described by some as a ‘channeler’ for Abraham
, a group of clearly evolved teachers, speaking their broader non-physical perspective through her physical body, she continues to write, broadcast, and offer workshops on practising the Law of Attraction.
“Contrast helps you identify desire. Desire is summoning. It’s always flowing through you. You have the opportunity to open to the harmony of the vibration of your desire or not. As the desires are being summoned through you, and you go with the flow, you thrive, but if you use things to be your excuse for not going with the flow, you are arguing for your limitations. We want to show you how to go with the flow, which means nothing more than finding vibrational harmony with your own desire, and letting the Universal Energy that your desire is summoning to flow through you. It is optimum creative experience”
She chose to continue her work after her husband Jerry’s death in November 2011, and has a workshop schedule planned — albeit brief — for the winter months touring the southern United States until April. Her bestselling book — The Vortex, 2009 — provides focus for these forays into the human psyche and her hands-on — or spirit-speaking — approach has helped thousands to find their own positive role in life.
“Nothing needs to be fixed. Everything is unfolding perfectly. So when you stand in your now accepting that all is well, then from that vibration, you become surrounded by more and more evidence that all is well. But when you’re convinced that things are broken, that there is pollution, or that things have gone wrong, or that the government is doing conspiracies… then what happens is you get caught up in that vibration, and you begin to manifest that kind of stuff, and then you say, ‘See, I told you that things were going wrong.’” — Abraham
The Law of Attraction says ‘that which is Like unto itself is drawn’ Abraham-Hicks
“When you play the What-If? game, look for things that make you feel better. There is never a situation in which there is not a way out but, out of habit, most people continue to choose the ‘lack’ perspective until they eventually find themselves where it seems that there are no more choices. But as you hold your intention to look for evidence of Wellbeing and thriving and success and happiness, you will tune yourself to the vibrations of those things and so those kinds of good-feeling experiences will dominate your life” — Abraham
The Law of Attraction, a term coined in the first decade of the 20th Century, is a belief which has outlived its proponents in the New Thought and Theosophist movements of the metaphysical community to become a 21st Century byword. The human mind seems incapable of encompassing the totality of the universe in its complexity, so it filters the reality to let in only a miniscule fragment.
What the mind understands becomes one’s fact or reality, and what it doesn’t, does not even exist in one’s world/universe. Forays by the mind out into that infinite source of knowledge-comprehension-belief bring understanding back into the individual’s sphere of experience, i.e. what we think becomes real.
Genuine crop circles
DMT molecule in accurate detail at Roundway, July 23, 2011. 2 days later its companion CC showed human pineal gland
— particularly to the cropcircle community
who await the 2012 season with bated breath — are extreme examples of this belief system, where during summer months in Britain, and now in several European and American countries, crop formations transmit code for information accessible only by the subconscious mind. Particularly relevant to our train of thought are two crop circles
which appeared in succession at Roundway, Wiltshire in July 2011 showing the human ‘feel-good’ centre — the pineal gland which generates melatonin — two days after the same DMT molecule manifested in accurate detail nearby (above). It is common knowledge that spontaneous healings, human warmth and friendship and synchronistic meetings have occurred in crop circles. Roundway, near Devizes is — in electromagnetic terms — seething with cross currents accessible by dowsers and magnetometer
readings. Many believe that in addition to their embedded code
, designs connect at a subliminal level
with our DNA.
Inspirationally, crop circles have had a hold over a large world audience because of the electronic miracle of aerial photography, mostly courtesy CCC and the Silent Circle, with instant rebroadcast over the internet. Within mainstream media (television and radio), the jury is still out.
The crop circle following is comparable with devotees of The Secret (2006), and What the Bleep do we Know (2004) which built on the New Thought Movement theme and brought many new names into the spiritual self-mastery movement, including quantum physicist Gregg Braden and Doctors Joe Vitale, Joe Dispenza, and Deepak Chopra. While Oprah was soaking up television audiencies, these MDs/PhDs were the first cultural phenomenon to bounce off the burgeoning internet. Six years on, within social media — Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, Google+ — such spiritual discussion is commonplace; crop circle excitement quick to spread.
2 pendulums control a pen over a writing surface: Edison's harmonograph drew spirals, ellipses & figures of eight
After the Superstorm of 1859, New England’s ‘tech industry’ at the formative MIT (19thC equivalent of today’s Silicon Valley in California) fostered youthful Thomas Edison’s interest in telegraph technology (with A.Graham Bell’s help) to produce the first ‘harmonic telegraph’.
His ‘harmonograph’ and ‘multiplex transmitter’ were the embryo internet of his day, scratchily etching sounds and rudimentary pictures from an electric signal: a path which changed communications in the western world.
It is tempting to speculate that one of the superstorms of the sun’s impending solar maximum might similarly create (temporarily adverse) conditions which could foster even wilder leaps of imagination in inventors using the medium of light-waves to create previously uncontemplated splendours.

, Edison and Einstein would have loved to live now — in the world we take for granted — to flip keys instead of switches to bring rainbow reality into the drabness of their black-and-white world: Maxwell and Einstein to see the Higgs-Boson particle

“The purpose of our journey on this precious Earth is now to align our souls with our personalities: to create harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for Life; to grow spiritually. This is our new evolutionary pathway. The old pathway — pursuing the ability to manipulate and control — no longer works. It now produces only violence and destruction.” Gary Zukav
Worldwide prophecies, from ‘Heaven-on-Earth’, to Messianic revelation, to the ‘Second Coming’ suggest the signs will appear in the skies. The classical Maya religiously kept watch to document and measure the paths of heavenly bodies as a means of calculating when this New Age would dawn.
This week should give us an inkling whether the signs in the skies are fulfilling prophecy or merely telling us to buckle up for the ride into the Light. Either way, it should be the ride of our lives.
