What can we discover from the cosmic dynamics? We can learn a great deal from it. But first we need to understand what is involved there. We can recognize four major cyclical processes happening on the scene of cosmic dynamics. They are the 11-year solar cycles, the 100,000-year Ice Age glaciation cycles, and two very long cycles with cycle times of 62 and 145 million years.

The 11-year solar cycle gives us a hint of the nature of the cosmic dynamics. With the Sun being now recognized as an electrically heated star, the 11-year solar cycles are not inherent in the Sun itself, but reflect the electrodynamic resonance of the heliosphere as a whole, a sphere that is roughly 30 billion kilometers wide. A large portion of the electric plasma particles of the solar wind are flowing back to the Sun in the heliospheric current sheet that is aligned with the ecliptic. In the resulting dynamic system the 11-year solar cycles unfold in the form of electric intensity cycles resonating within the heliosphere.

During the 11-year electric intensity cycles, which are expressed in the number of sunspots that occur during the cycles, the light and heat output of the Sun remains constant within a fraction of a percent. However, in the shorter wavelength spectrum of the ultraviolet band that corresponds with higher energy levels, a 20-fold variance during the solar cycles has been detected by a Japanese research team. Unknown at this point, is what we may see when the general electric power background is reduced during the coming glaciation environment. Will the 20-fold variance that we presently see in the UV band, become expressed also in the visible light band, where it would dramatically affect the power of photosynthesis in plants with a high impact on agriculture? The potential for this to happen may be the reason why humanity came out of the last glaciation cycle with the minuscule population of only 1 to 10 million people, after two million years of human development. It could be that the currently observed 20-fold variance in UV solar radiation during the eleven-year cycles, is already a precursor for the coming transition to renewed glaciation, which only cannot be recognized as a precursor for the lack of historic data.

It is conceivable that during the deep glaciation cycles the entire high end of the solar radiation spectrum becomes reduced, whereby the Sun would grow dimmer. Right now the 20-fold variance in energy radiation affects only the UV band, the highest-energy part of the spectrum, which provides a significant contribution to the greenhouse effect as most of the UV radiation is absorbed in the atmosphere.

When the electric environment around the solar system weakens further, it may cause the energy radiation reduction to shift deep into the visible light spectrum, giving us a dimmer Sun with a major loss of energy input for the earth. We would see this energy reduction adding further towards glaciation, in addition to the increased cloudiness, caused by increased cosmic-ray flux and the thereby reduced greenhouse effect. This three-fold amplifying process would give us rather large climate changes resulting from electric density variations affecting our Sun. These changes can happen quickly, as quickly as electric systems can change.

Small electric system have short cycle times, like the 11-year electric resonance cycle that is determined by the electric dynamics that operate within our solar heliosphere. The heliosphere is slightly less than 15 billion kilometers wide. Considering the potential average solar wind propagation speed and its return through the heliospheric current sheet, the 11-year solar activity cycle, as a resonance cycle, would fit the electric dynamics of a system of this size. Longer time cycles, such as the 100,000-year glaciation cycles, of course, require larger resonant systems. The size of our galaxy fits the electric dynamics for the longer 100,000-year cycles.

The Ice Age glaciation cycles occur in much longer timeframes than the 11-year solar resonance cycles, though the dynamics involved are similar. The 100,000-year glaciation cycles reflect the larger size of our galaxy in comparison with the solar heliosphere, but structurally both reflect the same principles of dynamics. While the electric envelope of our galaxy is not visible with its density being below the visible threshold, the model for its electric structure has been theorized by Hannes Alfven a few decades ago. Modern instrumentation has made it possible for some parts of the model to be seen, and its principle to be recognized in some of the more powerful galaxies of the cosmos.

The tall spikes on the 100,000-year cycles of the interglacial warm periods reflect the typical pattern of electric discharge systems where discharge events occur at regular intervals that equal out imbalances of electric-charge density differences between major galactic regions.

The principle is not unfamiliar to kids who have experienced the dump bucket in their water parks or swimming pools. As the dump bucket is filled from a facet it reaches a stage where it becomes top-heavy and unstable until it flips over and discharges its content in a big splash that the kids love. The cycle time depends on the size of the bucket and the flow rate of the input stream.

Electric systems of a similar nature pulsate much faster, such as the Crab Nebula, a fast oscillating system that pulses 30 times a second, operating in an intense high-power region of our galaxy. In the galaxy as a whole, where the charge differential builds up slowly and the structure is 100,000 light-years in size, the cycle time is correspondingly longer.

The point is that the interglacial climates are determined by the intensity of an electric discharge event. The electric environment during the discharge event is obviously radically different than that of the normal background. When the bucket is empty, the big splash is over, and the normal environment returns. We are presently in the transition zone where this happens on the galactic scale. We are coming close to the point when the last drops are coming out of the bucket.

Evidence has been found in sediments of extremely long cycles of climate variations on earth. The recorded pattern is a combination of two overlaid cycles. The strongest is a 145 million year cycle, and the weaker a 62 million year cycle. When the two cycles overlap at their low point, deep Ice Age epochs result, such as the one 450 million years ago in which 57% of all families of species of life in the oceans became extinct.

The only other timeframe where the low points of the two cycles come together simultaneously in a dramatic manner, is the present timeframe, which is once again a long epoch of cyclical ice ages. Since we do not live in a mechanistic universe, but in a universe where the cosmos is electrically interconnected over vast distances, the very long cycles in the Earth's climate history reflect the dynamics of cosmic electric resonances. In a very real manner, the climates on earth are determined at vast distances away from it.

With galaxies of various sizes, being electrically interconnected in long chains, each of the interconnecting channels have logically a unique resonance frequency and intensity. One of these resonances would account for the 145 million year cycle, and the other for the 62 million year cycle.

The Andromeda Galaxy is approximately 2.5 million light-years from Earth and is the nearest major galaxy to the Milky Way, though not the closest overall. It is however the largest galaxy of the Local Group of galaxies, which contains the Milky Way Galaxy, the Triangulum Galaxy, and about 30 smaller galaxies. Our 145 and 62 million years cycles are evidently resonance cycles within the interconnecting electric currents, called Birkeland currents that span across the local cluster.

That all galaxies are electrically interconnected is evident in this partial view of a cosmic deep field that opens up an unrestricted view of 35,000 galaxies. The electric evidence is seen in the alignment of the galaxies along filamentary strings and networks of strings. Electric filaments of Birkeland currents, in which the galaxies are located, create the long linear alignment of the galaxies like beads on a string.

Electric and magnetic forces shape all galaxies and their operational dynamics. Gravitational mechanics do not apply on this scale. Gravity is the weakest force in the universe, and its effective force diminishes with the square of the distance.

Gravity has only a local effect. The Sun's gravity barely reaches past the edge of the heliosphere. Its farthest known reach is to the Kuiper Belt and the farthest edge of what is called the scattered disk at roughly 15 billion kilometers distance from the Earth, or roughly 15 ten-thousands of a light year.

Gravity plays no role on the galactic scale that is a billion times larger in size than the solar system. Only the electric force can play a role here, which is 36 orders of magnitude stronger and does not diminish with the square of the distance.

Researchers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory believe that cosmic electric current streams, can reach across the 'small' interstellar spaces within the galaxies, and also in the form of extremely large Birkeland current streams extending across more than a billion light years of space. These long Birkeland currents are vast electric power streams in which entire galaxies, and also entire clusters of galaxies, are located.

The point is, that by understanding the dynamic forces that act on our climate, both small and large, it becomes possible to more accurately understand the Ice Age dynamics and the relevant precursors.

If we look at the last half of the 62 million year cycle, from its highest to its lowest point, which is 31 million years in duration, we can locate the high point in the early part of the thaw-out of Antarctica 20 million years ago. This puts the lowest point of the 62 million year cycle ten million years past the present. This means that we have not yet seen the lowest point of the current Ice Age epoch, the Pleistocene epoch. The point is that successive ice ages will become increasingly colder for the next ten million years. It shatters the hope that we may have come to the end of the glaciation cycles, or at least see them becoming milder. Instead, the opposite is the case, which increases the challenge that humanity faces in the near term when the interglacial ends and the transition begins to the next glaciation.

In other words, the interglacial warm holiday is coming to an end for humanity, possibly even before the middle of the present century. The time has come, therefore, to get serious about protecting our agriculture that our existence on this planet depends on.
