The authorized story of the Solar System is full of holes and myths; beware!

The Serpent of Empire may be able to bite the heel of the truth and throttle humanity's march of science with chains of mysticism and obscurity, but it cannot kill it. Empire cannot kill the truth. It cannot kill the power of human understanding and discovery of universal principles and the truth they represent, and their eventual application for the advance of civilization.

Empire may raise the axe of its world-destroying wars and mind-numbing terror and lies, but it cannot destroy humanity. It cannot kill the human spark in the heart, the spirit of discovery, the courage of conviction, and the patriotism of its pioneers. Those are eternal and will have their day when the night of empire comes to a close that humanity in a sad act of folly has allowed to come upon it. The day is at hand of the vanishing night. The glow of the dawn is already visible in the North. It promises a bright new sunrise as the diurnal process of the unfolding of humanity continues.

The leading edge of this unfolding of science is presently located in the science of cosmology that is sometimes referred to as the "queen of science." The foremost cutting edge of this science is without doubt the Electric Cosmology. It isn't the leading edge for reasons that it is difficult to understand. It is so because of the chains laid on science in an effort to keep it tied down, immobile, impotent. The chains define what is authorized. Civilization demands the removal of the chains. It demands human freedom. It demands truth in science. And the truth of cosmology is not complicated and overwhelming. It is inherently simple.

The truth in cosmology begins with the dawning recognition that 99.999% of the mass of the Universe exists not as a gas, or a liquid, or a solid, but exists as plasma, which is a primitive state where atomic particles are free flowing, rather than being bound up into atoms. In their unbound state, the plasma particles exhibit their native electric charge and thereby respond to the electromagnetic force, which is one of the strong forces of the Universe. They also exhibit the same mass as they would by being bound up into the structures of atoms, whereby they also respond to the force of gravity within the close spaces where gravity is effective.  Yes, plasma is electricity that responds to gravity. 

This dual feature of plasma enables amazing phenomena to occur. It enables long-distance networks of streams of electric power to occur that have been observed to span across billions of light years of space. It also enables these universal streams of electric power to be attracted by the gravity of planets and stars to power their amazing features, including the dynamic actions that light up our sun and every other sun in the Universe. In the near future this power will also become tapped into to, power our economies on earth, with technologies yet to be developed.

Since the masters of empire do not allow humanity to think in such powerfully enabling terms, but aim to keep society small, impotent, and conditioned for depopulation, the real story of the universe that we live in, is not an authorized story. Caution is therefore advised. Society is not authorized to recognize the truth. However, should you wish to be free of the heavy chains of authorized perception, allow me to invite you to discover the amazing new world of the Unauthorized Truth.


Here new story unfolds - the Unauthorized Story of the Universe

The authorized story tells us that the Universe began as a primordial sea of gas and dust, and that since every form of mass exerts a force of gravity - the masses being attracted to one another - the primordial dust and gas - are said to have been gravitationally condensed into stars and planets by the force of this all-pervading gravity. In this fairy tale the primordial gas is deemed to be hydrogen, the smallest possible atom in the universe. This atom, in its massively condensed state is said to develop such enormous gravity that its atoms are squished into each other so tightly that all the separating barriers break down and the atoms fuse and create larger atoms. It is said that by this gravity forced construction of larger atoms an exotic form of 'primordial' energy is released, whereby a sun is born, which every star in the Universe is.

In order to explain where the gas and dust came from that started the imagined chain of events, the Big Bang theory of a primordial explosion was invented in which all matter is deemed to have originated. It is said that before the Big Bang there was nothing - the Universe did not exist.

This is the kind of mysterious fairy tale that society teaches to its children and to one another in universities around the world. For the lack of anything else being taught, the authorized fairy tale is paraded as the truth. But is it the truth? No proof exists or is possible for any element of the authorized story.

What do we really know about the basics of the Universe, backed up by experimentally verifiable proof?

We know of the existence of five basic forces, the force of gravity, the electromagnetic force, the nuclear weak force, the nuclear strong force, and a still stronger force that creates the particles that the atoms are made of. 

All the matter in the Universe that we can see, touch, and work with, is made up of atoms. We also know that atoms are not solid matter, but are a dynamic energetic construct of three basic particles interacting with each other, by which everything that we see is created. The simplest atom is made up of only two parts, a tiny electron that 'swirls' around in a shell that has at its center a proton that is a thousand-times larger, which forms the nucleus. In their interaction these two particles create a construct that is 100,000 times larger than the sum of its two parts. The building of an atom represents an enormous creative gain. For example, if the electron was compared to a grain of salt, the proton would be the size of an apple, and the resulting atom would be a dynamic construct larger than Mt. Everest, the largest mountain of Earth. It takes the investment of a lot of energy to cause this construction to happen.

What makes the dynamic construct of an atom possible is the electric force. The protons and the electrons have an electric charge. The electron has a negative charge, and the proton a positive charge. The basic principle of the electric force is such that particles with like electric charges repel each other, and those with unlike charges attract each other. However this principle by itself would be catastrophic. The electrons would be locked onto the protons, whereby nothing would be constructed. Consequently we would not have a Universe. The Universe prevents this from happening with a related principle by which even the unlike particles are strongly repelled when they come intimately close to each other. On this basis atoms can exist as basically a dynamic interplay of attraction and repulsion.

However, more problems arise when larger atoms are formed. Atoms are also known to exist in over a hundred different sizes, having more than one proton at their nucleus and correspondingly more electrons. Such large constructions shouldn't be possible, because the principle of repulsion of like charges would make it impossible for multiple protons to become a nucleus. They would repel each other. The Universe overcomes this problem with another principle. By this principle, when two protons are energetically forced together within the sphere of an atom, one of the protons loses its electric charge and becomes a neutron. Now, with a neutron present, another proton can be added. The neutron thus isolates the protons from each other, and it latches them onto itself as a type of glue. On this basis 'huge' atoms can be formed that contain up to 100 protons in their nucleus.

The conversion of protons into neutrons is possible, because they themselves are but constructs of smaller parts, called quarks. Protons and neutrons are both made up of two types of quark, up-quarks and down-quarks of different electric qualities. The up-quark carries an electric charge of +2/3, and the down-quark of -1/3. When two up-quarks combine with a down quark, a proton results with a charge of +1, since 2+2-1/3=1. When one of the up-quarks changes into a down-quark, a neutron results with a charge of zero, since 2-1-1=0. This state exists only within the sphere of an atom. When a neutron is split off from an atom a quark decay begins whereby the neutron reverts back to become a proton. Stable free neutrons do not exist. 

The Universe is a Plasma Universe - Electric Energy in Motion

It is a verifiable fact that all atomic particles, when they are found in free form (not bound into an atom) carry an electric charge. In free form they are summarily referred to as plasma. It has been recognized that 99.999% of the mass of the universe exists in the unbound plasma form that is carrying an electric charge. When the charged particles are in motion, an electric current flows that produces a magnetic field around itself as it flows. All this is known and is experimentally verifiable. 

It is also known that the quarks that the particles are made of, are themselves not particles of a smaller type, but are recognized as being moving points of energy.

There is a point in bringing this up at this stage, because it alters the way the Universe is perceived. It contradicts the authorized perception.

The Unauthorized Universe is Electric in Nature and highly energetic

With 99.999% of the Universe existing in plasma form created by organized forms of energy, no Big Bang explosion is needed to create the matter of the Universe. It simply exists on its own by its own basic principles, and it exists in plasma form, meaning in the form of electric currents responding to the principles of the electromagnetic force, which is known to be the strongest organizing force in the Universe with an infinite range. It is known to be more than 36 orders of magnitude stronger than the force of gravity, and unlike gravity that diminishes with the square of the distance, the electric force diminishes only linearly. Vast plasma electric currents are recognized to exist spanning more than a billion light years of space.

When plasma is in motion it becomes magnetically self-aligned into concentrated electric currents. The principle for this interaction is known as the Birkeland current principle according to the name of its discoverer. When the concentrated currents become strong enough the needed energy becomes developed to bind electrons and protons into atoms. No primordial gas and dust is needed, and no Big Bang to create them. The electric energy process creates its atomic formations all on its own and constantly wherever the electric currents are sufficiently concentrated. Neither does the Universe need to resort to gravity, the weakest force, to cause the accretion of dust into stars and planets. The electric force that creates the gases and other atoms also sweeps them together by its own force into the planetary formations that we see throughout the galaxies. Neither does the Universe requires the mythical process of nuclear fusion to light up the stars. The electric force that forged the creation of the stars are also well able to power them.

The Unauthorized Sun

Every sun is electrically powered. In a Universe that is teeming with plasma electric energy that becomes concentrated into vast galaxies of electric currents, the stars are 'afloat' in electric energy, and they take hold of it. Here the force of gravity begins to play a role. Plasma has mass. Plasma electricity responds to gravity. The greater the gravity is, the stronger is a star's attraction of it. With the attraction the plasma density is increasing. It increases to the point that charge separation occurs. This happens along a very thin double-layer sheet where electrons and protons repel each other, forcing the electrons to one side and the protons to another. As the heavy protons are drawn further to the star, an electric tension between the double layer forms. As the tension increases electric arcing begins that lights up the planet as the anode of the process, which in the case of our Sun is called the photosphere.

The evidence of the process is visible when the violent forces of the electric interaction explode and rip a hole through the photosphere that reveals a darker surface underneath, causing a "sunspot."


The deeper layer below the surface is comparable in brightness to the moon. If the sun was fusion-powered from within, this layer would be brighter. Many theories have been created to explain this difference in conjunction with the fusion models, such as wave theories, and sprite-fountain theories, which are all as mythical as the fusion theory itself.

That the Sun is an electric catalyst rather than a fusion furnace is also evident in the enormous electric outflow from the arcing process that surrounds the Sun in the form of solar winds that are accelerated up to speeds of 800 Km/sec as they flow away from the Sun (shown here in the UV band). The electric interaction that causes the acceleration, heats the electric winds (streams of protons and ions) in the corona up to millions of degrees. This would not be possible for particles emanating from the solar surface that is only 5,800 degrees Kelvin in temperature. Only the electric force can cause this to happen. No other force exists that acts so immensely against the force of gravity.


On the surface of the Sun large loops of plasma currents are occurring, that are said to be "magnetic loops." Indeed they are magnetic phenomena. They are precisely the kind of phenomenon one would expect to see resulting from large electric currents flowing in the surface region of the Sun where the electric interaction is taking place that heats the Sun from the outside. When the "magnetic loops" are mentioned, the fact is conveniently omitted that all magnetic phenomena are the result of electric currents flowing. No other cause for magnetism exists. The giant plasma loops that are visible here are the result of magnetic phenomena powered by electric currents on a scale the defies the imagination.

The ever-changing Sun

A critical element of evidence that counters the fusion-sun hypothesis is the 11-year solar cycles and the 100,000 year ice ages. The illustration below indicates that the energy output of the Sun is not a constant factor, but varies rather significantly over the 11-year cycles, which are rightfully referred to as the solar activity cycles. The solar energy output in the UV band has been measured to vary 20-fold over the length of these cycles. If the Sun was a fusion furnace this large and frequent variation should not be possible, according to the solar fusion model. The time it would take under this model for the Sun to attain a new output state if the rate of energy generation in its core were to be suddenly changed, has been estimated to be in the range of 30 million years. This takes the sunspot cycles completely out of the picture as a dynamic solar process, and also the ice age cycles.

The well-known rapid changes that are reflected in the 11-year cycles, and also in the extensively documented 100,000 year ice age cycles are easily explainable natural phenomena in the Electric Universe with Electric Sun models. With the Sun being essentially a catalytic energy converter of electric power streams, with all the reactive processes going on at the surface in the photosphere, the Sun's energy output would naturally fluctuate almost instantly to the density of the electric energy streams flowing into it. The 11-year cycle would then not be caused by the Sun itself, but be a cycle of electric resonance in the heliosphere that the Sun merely responds to. The longer cycles, those of the Ice Age, would be in the same manner electric resonance cycles on the galactic scale. They would result from electric discharge systems spanning several hundred light years.

temperature variations spanning 450,000 years

The rigid thermo dynamics of the theorized solar fusion system cannot produce such large-scale rapid transitions from glacial to interglacial conditions that we have evidence of in the ice core samples, while electric resonance systems produce such pulses quite naturally, which an electric sun would instantly respond to.

How the Sun is perceived is not trivial

Nothing affects us on Earth more than the activity of the Sun. The Sun provides our warmth. It determines our climate. It enables our food to grow. It also causes the ice ages. It is definitely not a constant factor. Right now the Sun is changing. Its underlying magnetic field is 30% weaker than it had been 50 years ago. The solar winds are 20 percent cooler now and less dense, producing less pressure, and as the result cause the weakening of the heliosphere. The weaker heliosphere affects us in the form of increased cosmic radiation reaching the Earth. A 20% increase of some types has been measured. Increased cosmic radiation increases cloud formation as the atmosphere becomes more ionized. Increased cloudiness causes more sunlight to be reflected back into space, leaving the Earth colder.

While the Sun has not yet grown dimmer in the visible light band, its energy output varies by a factor of 20 over the course of the 11-year solar activity cycle when it is seen in the UV band as the illustration below shows.


The Sun is evidently already vulnerable in the high-energy UV band. Since nobody really knows at one point the reduced energy environment will reflect itself in not only a quieter Sun, as during the Maunder minimum of the activity cycles when no sunspots occurred for long periods and the Little Ice Age resulted, but will also reflect itself in a dimmer Sun with less warmth for the Earth. Since this potential happening would severely affect us all, it becomes imperative to explore how the dynamic electric system functions that surrounds our Sun and its solar system.

The Unauthorized Solar System

At the 'local' level the solar electric system is defined by the dynamic interaction that happens within the heliosphere. 

The heliosphere is inflated by the solar wind. When the solar wind (typically 800 Km/sec) slows down to below approximately 100 KM/sec., the wind plasma becomes condensed and creates a shock front, called the Termination Shock. The shock front is spherical in nature. The entire solar system is encapsulated within the sphere shown above, of the Termination Shock. 

When the solar wind plasma comes to a full stop shortly past the shock line, a line called the Heliopause, the plasma accumulates and forms a wall, a porous wall of magnetic bubbles caused by the interaction of the electric plasma with the rotating magnetic field of the Sun. 

From the Heliopause the plasma current flows back to the Sun in the heliospheric current sheet (not shown here) that is aligned with the ecliptic.

The Heliopause is the farthest point our space craft have traveled away from the Earth, Their mission is to explore the other side of the Heliopause, beyond which lies a theorized layer called the Bow Shock where the interstellar plasma is deemed to interface with the Heliopause. 

The entire structure of the Heliosphere is roughly 0.002 light years wide. The Heliosphere in turn is surrounded by still another sphere that has been named the Oort Cloud. 

The Oort cloud is thought to occupy a vast space from somewhere between 0.03 and 0.08 ly to as far as 0.79 ly from the Sun. Some estimates place the outer edge at between 1.58 and 3.16 ly. 

The region of the Oort Cloud can be subdivided into a spherical outer cloud of 0.32–0.79 ly, and a doughnut-shaped inner Oort cloud of 0.03–0.32 ly. Models predict that the inner cloud should have tens or hundreds of times as many commentary nuclei as the outer halo. The outer Oort cloud is believed to contain several trillion individual objects larger than approximately 1 km with many billions more approximately 20 km in diameter, though with neighboring objects typically tens of millions of kilometers apart.

See: Oort Cloud.

Little is known about the space between the cloud and the heliosphere, except that a very few tiny planetoids from a structure known as the Scattered Disk that lies beyond the Kuiper Belt, orbit as far as the inner edge of the cloud. This evidently is the farthest extent to which the solar gravity is effective.

The Oort Cloud itself, being essentially a solar-centric sphere, appears to be held in place by the Sun's magnetic field and a network of plasma currents that the magnetic field can act upon. 

Of course the electric nature of the Oort cloud will likely always remain as but a theory as direct measurements are presently not possible and might remain so for some time. The edge of the heliosphere is the farthest our space craft have reached. 

Obviously the Oort cloud is not quite as simple as shown above. The only thing we know for certain about it is that the cloud is centered on the Sun, though it extends beyond the apparent reach of the Sun's gravity. This paradox places the containment of the Oort Cloud into the court of the electromagnetic force.

In this case we should see evidence of it in the form of electromagnetic resonances. And this we do see. We see evidence of such resonances in the ice core samples. 

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 that is evident as the solar activity or sunspot cycles, so would the still larger space between the heliosphere and the apparently electrically dense Oort Cloud have a similar resonance corresponding to the discovered 200-year oscillations that are seen in the sunspot cycles and also in the ice core samples. In like manner would the Oort Cloud also have its own internal resonance.

The Oort Cloud appears to be a highly charged plasma sphere to contain such a vast sea of objects. It may exist as the Sun's equivalent of the Earth's magnetosphere and plasma sphere. In such a case it might function 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. And we do see evidence of that.

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), with the inner Oort Cloud itself thought to be 0.3 light years thick. We may see it reflected in the 500-year resonance that we also find in the ice core samples. The outer Oort Cloud that extends to between 1 to 3 light years further, may be too large in size to be included in such a 'short' 500-year resonance, although it is still within the range of possibilities depending on the speed of 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 this propagation speed the outer sphere could be a part of the 500-year resonance.)

However, as we have learned from observing the solar cycles, 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 happens also in the Oort Cloud system. 

In the initial period of the down-stepping, when the electric density of the cloud had been still at a high level, the resonance time appear to have been 500 years long (between year zero and 500 AD). The next down-step cycle, as we approach the end of the current interglacial period and the system beginning to weaken, was correspondingly longer, at app. 650 years in duration (500 AD to 1150 AD). The follow-on down-step cycle, being dramatically weaker still, would logically have its resonance time become even longer. This is what we see. We see a resonance of app. 850 years in duration (from 1150 AD to the present). All of this means that we are now entering the 4th cycle, with another typical steep down-step by which we will likely experience dramatic cooling over the next 50 years or more ahead. We truly have a New Ice Age ahead of us.

The evidence for this exists in the ice core records that match in principle what has become known about the electrodynamics complex of the solar system. However, the evidence of the electric nature of the organizing force in the solar system does not end there. We can find numerous other electric effects evident right close at the heart of the solar system. We find it, expressed in the characteristics of the orbits of the planets around the Sun.

The Unauthorized Ecliptic of the Planets

Here we find another paradox. We find the planets all orbiting on a single plane. No known mechanistic force would do this. So, why is it happening? What force has placed the planets into a near-flat ecliptic that all planets share? Gravity doesn't do this. Gravity doesn't require that the planets orbit in the same plane. A lot of theories were developed as to why this is.

For example, it was once believed that the planets have been 'spit out' by the Sun as it had spun for billions of years. Another theory has it that the planets condensed from a giant accretion disk that was deemed to have once formed around the Sun similar to the rings of Jupiter. Both of these theories don't hold in the face of the fact that the ecliptic of the orbits is tilted 7 degrees away from the Sun's rotational equator. Any matter that would have originated with the Sun would be orbiting in the Sun's equatorial plane instead of being tilted away from it. Nor could any planet have been 'flung' away by the Sun's rotation, as the Sun's rotation is far too slow. 

The rotation velocity at the Sun's equator is 7,189 km/hr. This velocity is much too slow for anything to be 'flung' away from the Sun. In order to overcome the Sun's force of gravity an Escape velocity of 617.7 km/sec would be required at the solar surface. This velocity is slightly greater than 2.2 million Km/hr. A planet would need to be accelerated to a greater speed than 2.2 million Km/hr to be able to escape the Sun's gravity by centrifugal force. Even if this enormous acceleration should miraculously be generated, a planet moving at the required velocity to be flung away from the Sun would be flung out of the solar system altogether. The orbital velocity of the Earth is a mere 29.8 Km/sec, which is 20-times slower than the needed escape velocity from the Sun.

The bottom line is that the solar-origin concept for the planets is simply not possible. For the same reason is the galactic concept of stars orbiting the galactic center not possible. The Sun is estimated to be located roughly 25,000 light years from the galactic center orbiting at a speed of 220 Km/sec.. The amount of gravity that would be required to balance the escape velocity of 220 km/sec. across the enormous distance of 25,000 light years is unimaginable. It would give a new dimension to what is astronomical. The inner stars, in order to achieve escape velocity, orbiting close to the gravitational source, would have to orbit at near light speed or faster so as not to be consumed by this gravity. Such velocities and the resulting gravitational stresses are simply not possible to achieve and endure. The concept of stars orbiting the galactic center is for this reason nothing more than just a dream, and remains a dream no matter how strongly the concept is promoted in the schools and universities. What is not physically possible to occur just isn't happening. The observed stellar motions are evidently not orbital motions, but are motions inherent in the Birkeland current streams that flow in the galaxies and through them.

The delicate balance of planetary orbits

The delicate balance of planetary orbits

The theoretical speed with which the planets orbit the Sun is a fine balance between the escape velocity that applies for their distance from the Sun, and the speed below which an orbit would decay and the planets crash into the Sun.

For an object to be lifted off the Sun at its equator it would need to be accelerated to such a velocity that its centrifugal force would balance the Sun's gravitational force and slightly exceed it. This is called the escape velocity. By this process the object is lifted to a higher 'altitude' and begins to orbit the Sun. However, gaining 'altitude' requires energy. The energy that is invested in the higher 'altitude' is taken from the velocity that becomes reduced thereby. However, at the higher 'altitude,' (meaning a greater distance from the Sun), the effect of the Sun's gravity is weaker so that the lower velocity (a slower orbiting speed) will be sufficient to balance the weaker gravity with enough velocity left to further escape its pull. This process continues until by definition an infinite orbit is attained and the velocity is reduced to zero. The energy that is required to achieve this escape, defines the escape velocity. The escape velocity has thereby a different value for each 'altitude' or orbital distance from the Sun. The value reflects the remaining velocity-portion of the energy in the system.

If an object is put into orbit with less than the escape velocity, it will reach a stage where its velocity is reduced to the point where the resulting centrifugal force becomes less than the effective force of gravity, which then pulls the object back down to a lower 'altitude' - meaning to a lower orbit, closer to the Sun. Now falling back, the object speeds up again whereby its loosing 'altitude' becomes converted back to velocity. In this endless interplay of 'climbing' and loosing speed, and dropping back and gaining speed, the total energy in the system remains constant. It pulsates between speed and 'altitude.' From this interplay an elliptical orbit results. All planetary orbits are elliptical. Some are more so than others to the point of some being nearly circular within less than a percent in variance.

The bottom line is that the theoretical escape velocity represents the amount of energy required for an object to establish an infinite orbit. In practice the planets orbit on a significantly lower energy budget. All the major planets in the solar system, right across the board, orbit at an average velocity of just 71% of the escape velocity for their respective distance from the Sun, and they all remain stable in this 'slow' orbit. The result is amazing, because if it isn't the energy in the system that distinguishes the orbits from each other, what is it?

The uniformity of the energy factor shows that the energy per mass is the same for all orbits. It suggests that an active principle appears to be superimposed to organize the orbits. The uniformity cannot be explained with the principle of mass-gravity interaction.

Consider the following table:


Location 1. orbital
2 mass
re. Earth
    3 distance
4 orbit velocity

5 escape velocity

on Sun (equator) 332,000 0 617.5
Mercury, 88 days 0.382 0.387 47.9 67.7
Venus, 225 days 0.949 0.723 35.0 49.5
Earth, 365 days 1.000 1.000 29.8 42.1
Mars, 1.88 yrs 0.533 1.520 24.1 34.1
Jupiter, 11.9 yrs 11.200 5.200 13.1 18.5
Saturn, 29.5 yrs 9.450 9.540 9.46 13.6
Uranus, 84.0 yrs 4.100 19,200 6.81 9.6
Neptune, 165.0 yrs 3.880 30.100 5.43 7.7

The 71% ratio of the orbital velocity, when compared with the escape velocity, is the ratio of the velocities in column 4 to column 5. A 71% ratio is evident for the orbits of all the planets. The uniformity of this ratio indicates that the orbital energy (per mass) is amazingly the same for everyone of the planets regardless of their distance from the Sun. Nor is this ratio affected by the amount of the mass of a planet.

This uniform ratio tells us that the orbital energy value for Mercury is the same as that for Jupiter that is 30 times more massive. The fact that the energy ratio is uniform is easily verified by multiplying the square root of the relative distance (column 2) with the observed orbit velocity (column 4). The result is 29.8 in each case, which equals the orbit velocity of the Earth that is used as a reference for comparison. (The square root of the distance applies for this comparison, because the effect of gravity diminishes with the square of the distance)

The bottom line is that a solar system with neatly spaced orbiting planets and with identical energy factors is not completely a mechanistic phenomenon, but is a phenomenon that is actively shaped by an additional principle, an electric principle. It might well be that without the electromagnetic force interacting and shaping the orbits, and thereby ordering them, and maintaining them, our planetary solar system would likely be so disorderly that it might no longer exist.

The exact details of the ordering process remain presently unknown. However, it is nevertheless logical to assume that the ordering system does not have the power to keep an object in orbit that has a velocity that exceeds the escape velocity from the Sun. The theory that the planets of the solar system had their origin in or near the Sun is unsupportable by known physical principles.

The paradox of the composition of the solar planets

In addition to the escape-speed problem, the planets are also different by their composition and the inclinations of their spin-axis. Thus it is hard to see them as having originated from the same 'cradle,' the Sun. The sun is understood to be a giant gas ball, primarily of hydrogen and helium. Also the Sun is deemed to contain 99% of the mass of the solar system. It is not logical to assume in this context that a heavy planet like the Earth with a metallic core and massive quantities of heavy elements in its crust would have originated from a hydrogen gas ball? The composition density of the Earth is four times greater than that of the Sun, which means that the Earth couldn't have come from the Sun or the materials that formed it. This paradox exists for all the inner planets (see table below). None of the inner planets, which are all heavy planets, could have come from the Sun.

As strange as this may seem, the only explanation that makes sense to solve the puzzle, is that the planets were probably acquired by the Sun from external sources. Long-range attraction is not unknown in the Universe. Entire galaxies attract each other and merge. The attraction, of course, is only possible with the electric force causing it, which has a long-enough reach.

The flat ecliptic paradox

The above considerations about the orbits of the planets do not really answer the question as to why the planet's orbits are neatly aligned into an almost- perfectly flat ecliptic. From the standpoint of gravitational mechanics nothing would prevent the planets from orbiting the Sun in random planes and in random directions. In fact, random orbits would be more logical if one considers that the planets were probably acquired.

What force then causes the planets to be all neatly aligned into a single plane and with all the planets orbiting in the same direction? Even the Earth's moon is aligned to this single ecliptic, and it likewise orbits in the same direction. The evidence that the Earth and the Moon orbit on the same ecliptic plane is evident by the perfect alignment of the Moon over the face of the Sun when seem from Earth during the time of a solar eclipse. If the Moon, the Earth, and the Sun were not on the same ecliptic plane, the photographs below, of the total eclipse of the Sun by the Moon and the full eclipse of the Moon in the shadow of the Earth, would not have been possible.

We see a universal electric principle apparent in the ecliptic alignment, which as a principle, evidently also applies to the Moon, as it too, being nearly 6 times larger than Pluto, is functionally a planet as any other planet.

(app, ecliptic line added)

In the above photograph we see the Moon lit up by the Earth-rise from the right, and we see it in line with the Sun, and all three in line with Saturn, Mars, and Mercury (from right to left). Mercury and Saturn appear to be of the same size in the photograph. This is so, because, while Saturn is 25 times larger it would be 25 times further away in the position shown. Their slight offset from the line reflects the different planets' variance from the perfect ecliptic by a few degrees, as per the table below. 

The point is that if the flattening of the ecliptic is the result of powered electric forcing, such variances should be expected according to the electric conditions for the individual planets. The planets with the poorest electric condition, for which mass is a factor, have the greatest variance. The dwarf planet Ceres, for example, orbits on a strongly inclined plane of 10.58 degrees (not shown in the table).

The powered alignment appears to be performed by the electromagnetic force, which is stronger than gravity. It appears to exert an organizing 'pressure' onto the galaxies that aligns the galaxies into flat disks. The same type of electromagnetic 'pressure' evidently is also brought to bear on the planets, though to a much lesser degree.

These energetic fountains of electric plasma streams, shown above, detected by NASA in the x-ray bands, are evidently merely the heart of a much larger electric circulation system that plasma Physicist Hannes Alfven had theorized to exist, but which could not be seen at his time since electricity is invisible in the longer-wave lengths of the visible-light bands.

Hannes Alfven had created this model for the operation of galaxies. It would be surprising if we didn't see this principle also reflected in the small, in the solar system where it would become the aligning force acting on the planets, primarily those with sufficient mass by which they would have their own strong electric properties that the solar electromagnetic sphere may act on. Dwarf planets in contrast have large variances, like Ceres, for example (with only 0.00015 times the mass of the Earth, being inclined from the ecliptic by 10 degrees) and Pluto (with only 0.00218 times the mass of the Earth, being inclined 17 degrees). Their small mass, and with it their small electric attraction, are evidently too small for the principle of the electric alignment to be effective.

It would also be surprising if we didn't see the principle of electric alignment be expressed in other star systems in our galaxy. We see evidence for this too in a recently discovered binary star system with a planet orbiting both on a single ecliptic.


The above is an artist's perception of the 09-15-2011 historic discovery of a lone planet orbiting a binary star system. And more amazing than the discovery itself is the discovered precision of the ecliptic alignment of the orbit of the planet and the orbit of the small sun within "half a degree."  

The principle of the electric alignment of orbits, happening outside of our solar system, appears to be confirmed by this discovery. NASA puts it this way:

The largest of the two stars, a K dwarf, is about 69 percent the mass of our sun, and the smallest, a red dwarf, is about 20 percent the sun's mass.... Kepler-16 (the planet) orbits a slowly rotating K-dwarf that is, nevertheless, very active with numerous star spots (sun spots). Its other parent star is a small red dwarf. The planetary orbital plane is aligned within half a degree of the stellar binary orbital plane. (see: ...Orbiting Two Stars

NASA also produced a movie illustration of the dynamics of the orbits observed over a span of 41 days. The illustration shows both the stellar orbit of the red dwarf and the planetary orbit of K16 to be nearly circular, which is identical to the orbital characteristics of the major planets in our solar system.

The Unauthorized Near-Circular Orbit

While all of the orbits in the solar system are elliptic in principle, the ellipse of the orbits of the major planets is so slight that they are nearly circular in shape. The table below shows the dimension of their Aphelion and their Perihelion in millions of  kilometers, and their ratio.

Mercury 69 - 46 1.500
Venus 108 - 107 1.009
152 - 147
Mars 249 - 206 1.208
Ceres (dwarf) 446 - 380 1.173
Jupiter 816 - 740 1.102
Saturn 1513 - 1352 1.119
Uranus 3004 - 2748 1.093
Neptune 4553 - 4452 1.022
Pluto 7311 - 4437 1.647

The table shows that the orbits of the major planets in the solar system are all nearly circular, while the orbits of planets with little mass have more elongated elliptic orbits. The weak gravity of planets with a small mass attracts only a small electric charge, which provides a weak interface to the electric system that powers the orbits. For the Moon the electric interface is so weak that the Moon is losing speed. It is presently lagging at the rate of one orbit per 18.6 years.

All the large planets have near circular orbits, while the 'dwarf' planets do not. This fact cannot really be explained in the gravity-only mechanistic perception, but when seen from the electrodynamics standpoint one would be surprised if one would not see this effect. 

The same electric forces that align the planets into a flat ecliptic would thus also shape their orbits and power their speed according to the principles of the homopolar electric motor. However, other factors than just mass also enter the scene as in the case of the Moon and the dwarf planet Ceres.

Kepler's Second Law, the discovered mechanistic principle of orbital characteristics, of sweeping an equal angular area over the span of equal time, which is applicable to all orbits, also enters the scene and is evidently not affected by the active electric powering of the planets, though it may shape the size of the orbits and vary their spacing.

The evidence that we see here points to a complex interaction between the force of gravity, the effect of mass, and a number electromagnetic effects and their principles.

What causes a Sun and the planets to spin?

Is the spinning of the planets also electrically powered? It is assumed that the planets got their spin when they were born and will maintain it forever by the momentum of their mass. But is this a reasonable perception? The planet Venus forces us to re-think this perception. It presents evidence that the spinning of the planets is electrically powered. The planet Venus doesn't spin. In fact it rotates backwards, slightly, evidently being moved backwards by the solar wind. It 'spins' backwards and this so slowly that a single rotation takes 243 days. Venus proves that a planet's mass is not by itself sufficient to keep it spinning forever. 

The case of Venus proves that the spinning of the planets is actively powered, though a second factor comes into play here. Venus is electrically unique among the planets in that it has no magnetic field around it. It is the only planet without a magnetic field, and the only planet that doesn't spin. (The Earth's moon also has these two characteristics.)

The reason why Venus (and likewise the Moon) doesn't have a magnetic field (for which electric currents are needed), suggests that the planet has poor electrically conductive properties, or none at all.

All the gas giants - Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune - in spite of their larger size, spin much faster than the Earth, and they all have one thing in common; their atmosphere is rich in hydrogen. Hydrogen is easily ionized, whereby it becomes a conductor of electricity. 

The spinning motion of the planets appears to result when plasma currents impact. When plasma flow is disrupted it escapes the resulting shock point via a perpendicular detour. The current kinks. Some of that can be seen in lightning. The current changes direction to overcome a shock point. What results from this principle is similar to the 'kink' that one encounters in a barred spiral galaxy. 

The 'kink' in the galactic current causes the central bar to rotate, creating a spiral. 

In the 'small' world of the planetary scale, inflowing plasma currents evidently have a similar effect on a planet, inducing a strong lateral movement. A planet's then developing magnetic field then would concentrate the in-flowing currents towards the equator. If this was (in broad terms) the active principle, it would cause all the planets in the solar system to spin in the same direction, which they do. The development of a magnetic field appears to result from this process. The cases of Venus and the Moon prove this point. Both planets don't spin, neither do they have a magnetic field. 

A strong point of evidence that the rotation of the planets is actively powered by electric forces is also seen in the Sun. 

The Sun is peculiar in that its spins 50% faster at its equator than at its poles. The differential suggests that an external force acts onto the planet more strongly at the solar equator and drives it ahead there more strongly. It takes the Sun 25.05 hours for one rotation at its equator, and 34.4 hours for a rotation at the poles. If the Sun was spinning by its own momentum, the rotation would be uniform, or would be slightly slower at the equator, because of drag, but instead the opposite is happening, and dramatically so. The faster spinning equator of the Sun is only possible when it is actively driven by the electric force.

The 50% differential, of the equator being driven faster, also reflects a secondary electric effect. The Sun powers an extremely large interplanetary magnetic field that interacts with the entire solar system. The interaction puts a considerable load onto the Sun which would slow its overall rotation. Jupiter, in comparison, which doesn't have a magnetic load to carry, in spite of is smaller size, spins with a 6-times faster surface velocity than the Sun (12.6 Km/sec or 45,300 Km/hr, in comparison with 7,189 Km/hr for the Sun).

These characteristics make it amply plain that the Sun is not an isolated star spinning by its own momentum, and being a nuclear fusion furnace powered from within, but is instead externally powered in all of its aspects, by electric plasma currents flowing into it that are attracted by its gravity. By this process the Sun becomes an electric arc furnace in the sky, powered by electric energy flowing into it from the galaxy. With the Earth being 332,000-times less massive, our rotational velocity is relatively slow, at 1,674.4 km/hr. Also, instead of the entire planet being an electric arc furnace as the Sun is, the galactic electricity is expressed on Earth more gently in the form of merely a few lightning storms and electrically powered tornadoes and hurricanes. So far humanity has been 'blinded' to this freely available electric energy for political reasons, and has not yet developed the technology to utilize it to power its economy with. This potential remains untapped at the moment. How long will it be until it is being recognized that we have boundless energy resources at hand, and begin to utilize them? The future will tell the answer.

The Unauthorized Spacing of the Orbits

Now let's get back once more to the planets, for one last piece of evidence that the entire solar system is electrically powered. We find this evidence in the spacing of the planets. The spacing of the orbits of the planets reflects such a harmonious interrelationship that Kepler saw in it a reflection of the musical scale. Indeed, the spacing of the orbits appears to be far too well harmonized to be a random phenomenon. (see: A Large view of the solar system)

From a mechanistic standpoint no ordering principle seems to exist that would produce the harmonious spacing of the orbits that we see. But in electrodynamics such an ordering principle presents itself. 

If we consider that all the planets are encapsulated in an electrically-active heliosphere that features not only out-flowing solar winds, but also a sheet of an inflowing return current that flows along the plane of the ecliptic, we will see the return current increasing in density towards the Sun as its flow area is shrinking to ever smaller areas of circumference. This means that the electric currents become increasingly concentrated to ever higher density, which has corresponding magnetic effects.

It is a feature of flowing electric plasma-currents to magnetically pinch themselves, and to do this increasingly with increased current density. In this environment of increasing current density the current will create pinch nodes at intervals that accord with increases in the current density. Such nodes would be spaced far apart in the region of the outer planets where the current is weak, but their intervals would become increasingly shorter towards the Sun. The now well-known spacing of the planets reflects this near geometrically progressive pattern of the electrodynamics relationship of current flow density to available area.

The spacing of the planets is evidently the result of an active and lawful process rather than a phenomenon that simply happened by chance.

The energy that actively powers the Sun and the solar system evidently comes from outside the solar system, since the Sun itself does not produce power but is merely a catalyst for it. In most cases stars are observed to be aligned into filamentary string structures of stars, like beads on a string. Since this is a near universal phenomenon rather than a random arrangement, an organizing fore must stand behind it. Since the only organizing force with interstellar reach is the electromagnetic force, the string phenomena that we see is the result of long-extended interstellar electric currents, plasma currents, also known as Birkeland currents. Birkeland currents are magnetically self-aligned into long filamentary structures. On the stellar scene we see strings of stars aligned in them.

Evidence for the existence of strong interstellar plasma currents is found in the shape of our Heliosphere. 

The Heliosphere around our sun is made up of three parts: a spherical inner part called the Termination Shock where the solar wind slows down sharply and creates a shock front. This sphere is encapsulated by an outer shell (1 AU thick) called the Heliopause or Heliosheath, where the out-flowing solar wind pressure and the incoming interstellar medium balance. The shell is theorized to have a cone shaped front and an elongated tail as it would have if it was surrounded by a flowing plasma stream. The third surrounding layer is called the Bow Shock. The Bow Shock (app. 240 AU distant from the Sun) is caused where the interstellar flow is impeded by the Heliopause. The encounter creates a shock front on the outside similar to the Termination Shock on the inside.

The graceful arc above is the bow shock of the star L.L. Orionis that impedes the Orion Nebula flow. In the case of our solar system, the Bow Shock points to the star Alpha Centauri 4.37 light years distant.

The star Alpha Centauri is actually a triple star system, though it is mostly seen as a binary star. It is interesting to note that this star is closely aligned with the plane of the solar system's ecliptic, as the illustration above and the photograph below illustrate.

The image was taken in visible red light with the Cassini spacecraft's narrow-angle camera on May 17, 2008. The view was obtained at a distance of approximately 534,000 kilometers (332,000 miles) from Saturn. The view was captured from about 66 degrees above the ring plane and faces southward on Saturn. Ring shadows mask the planet's northern latitudes at bottom.


The shadows of the rings of Saturn are omitted in the above illustration, but it is fairly obvious where they would be. As seen from Earth, Alpha Centauri is located in line with the galactic ecliptic. The fact that Alpha Centaury can be seen against the northern sphere of Saturn, looking away from the Sun as the ring shadows indicate, then the ecliptic of the solar system is essentially in line with the inflowing current.

Now all this brings to light still another dimension of the electrodynamics of our sun. This one is a dimension of timing. 

The path or the plasma current from Alpha Centauri to the Sun is 4.37 ly long. When this long-distance path is surrounded by a high-density background field of plasma, the interstellar current stream attracts some of it and becomes supercharged thereby. The increased current density becomes reflected onto the Sun that becomes increasingly active thereby. The occurrence of this high-density energy gives us the interglacial-climate pulse. In the warm climate the big continental ice sheets melt; the Earth becomes green; civilization develops. The process continues for as long as the high-density pulse lasts. Point A below (5000 years ago) appears to have been the cut-off point. What maintains the interglacial climate after this point is the residual charge that has been stored up in the incoming interstellar current, a kind of bucket that is filled to the brim.

The out-flowing current from the Sun to the next star in line should not affect us to a significant degree as the current flow is away from the Sun. The star Epsilon Eridiani has been chosen for the above illustration from among a number of stars in the range of 10 to 12 light years from the Earth in the direction away from Alpha Centauri. The critical factor for us is the in-flowing current.

With the electric current stream still highly charged at this point, the high-density electric inflow into the Sun would logically continue on for some time, though slowly diminishing, while the interstellar current from Alpha Centauri drains into the Sun. 

If the plasma-flow rate was 300 Km/sec at the cut-off point it would take 4,370 years for the interstellar 'bucket' to drain itself.


Point B of the interglacial climate chart would likely be the point where the diminishing inflow would encounter a shock-effect in the Oort Cloud. The shock effect in the Oort Cloud would likely have been the cause for the brief pulse of the medieval optimum a thousand years ago. At point C the Oort Cloud would have adjusted itself to the diminishing current inflow.

While the above scenario is hypothetical, something along the line as stated would likely have occurred. The interstellar plasma flow rate of 300 Km/sec has been assumed as such velocities have been measured in the solar wind and in the heliospheric current sheet. In practice, the interstellar flow is too distant for its flow rate to be measurable, also it would likely diminish to some degree with the diminishing current density. However, with all the uncertainties factored in, we need to face the high probability that the inter-stellar bucket is just about empty, which had maintained our interglacial climate from point A to the present.

When the bucket is fully empty of its abnormal super-charged condition, the entire system drops back to the energy background that is typical for the Pleistocene Epoch that the Earth has been in for the last 2 million years, which corresponds to a world that is 30 times colder than the Little Ice Age has been.

The empty-bucket effect in economics

It appears that the active high-energy pulse that gave the Earth its nice warm interglacial period ended roughly 5000 years ago at point A. After this point the interglacial was maintained by residual energy flowing out of a large interstellar bucket. Since our climate is determined by the electric inflow we receive from Alpha Centauri, which is the outflow from Alpha Centauri, we are also affected by what flows into Alpha Centauri, which is a part of the interstellar bucket. 

The point is that the interstellar electric system has a very large residual capacity that has maintained a high power level for 5000 years by now, while the bucket is being drained. Eventually however, and unavoidably so, the bucket will run dry. We've got ample of evidence that we are near this point. We also see the same resilience economically. Humanity has been drained of its energy in a similar manner for nearly as long, if not longer. It appears that the current economic collapse that is happening increasingly around the world is not really a modern phenomenon, but is merely the outcome of a distant cause. Civilization is not something that is easily drained over night. The apparent fact that it has been drained to the point that the 'bucket' is now nearly empty, suggests that we may be looking for a far more distant cause, or causes, than those that society attempts to address with legislation and often fails.

One of the most distant causes that drained a lot of 'energy' out of the human system, beginning in the far distant past, may be the practice of the induced self-mutilation of society at the deepest level. Civilization is a created construct built by the cooperative action of society. Humanity is not an animal that lives by 'grazing the land.' Humanity lives by created resources on a near universal platform ranging from agriculture to energy-intensive industrial production. For this to function, a high degree of cooperative unity is essential, which is built on an intimate sense of closeness between people. Tribal structures, ethnic and national structures, even mutually enriching cultural structures, are all structures of an intimately connected society, just like the Universe itself is a sea of intimately connected structures. Nothing is isolated in the Universe. However, the principle of connectedness that we see in the physical Universe does not end there, but becomes increasingly the power-house in the universe of life, and more so at its highest manifest that on the Earth is humanity manifest in human living. Civilization is a construct of intimate connectedness, socially, economically, scientifically, politically, culturally, and so on. The Principle of the General Welfare has long been recognized as a keystone of civilization. It however, as a foundation, requires the intimate connectedness in society.

A built-in natural factor that promotes intimate connectedness, which came out of the millions of years of humanity's development, is the amazingly strong need for sexual intimacy that has been a feature of humanity throughout history. However, it has been recognized quite early, long before written languages have been established, that the intimate connectedness can be broken for religious and imperial purposes by mutilating the biology that is critical for sexual intimacy. The process of sexual mutilation has been 'sanitized' with technical-sounding descriptive terms: the "circumcision" for men and the "infibulation" for women. It is more easily sold that way.

The process of sexual amputation for 'political' purposes may have been pioneered by the priesthood of ancient Egypt as a means for shifting people's intimacy with one another towards a greater intimacy with their God. The oligarchic processes may have developed out of that. Today, nearly a billion men, and more than a hundred million women live as victims of this deep-reaching mutilation of what may be a critical natural system that humanity has developed over a long period of time for its benefit. Researchers suggest that the debilitating effect of the circumcision may be as deep-cutting as the apparent intention behind it was and may still be, with the effect being recognized only in rare cases by the victims themselves. One who chose this path and was able to see the effect described it as "living in a world without color."

The research here, which is still only in the beginning stage conducted by a few institutions, presents some rather surprising discoveries of deep-reaching and often hidden effects. The effects are said to include learning disabilities, helplessness, tendencies towards sado-masochistic behaviors, impotence, loss of trust, avoidance of intimacy due to fear, developing into rage, domestic violence, rape, child sexual abuse, suicide, and a vast range of psychosomatic disorders that are only now becoming associated with the Post Dramatic Stress Disorders caused by the sexual mutilation that is most often imposed on children. The long-term victims are recognized by researchers to generally suffer from what some call, "culturally inherited mass psychological disorders." The victims are recognized by typically having a grandiose sense of self-importance; by being preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideals of love; by believing that they are unique and "special" above all other people, cultures and races. They are recognized by seeking excessive admiration with a strong sense of entitlement - but even as they almost demand this slavish attention, they are interpersonally exploitative and lack empathy to the point of being arrogant and haughty in their behaviors and attitudes. 

It appears that the diminished sexual sensitivity, which the victims are rarely aware of, inhibits the normal deep social bonds and social trust, and the development of the creative and productive capacity of the individual mind. The bottom line is, that any society that imposes this tragedy on its people is destroying itself from within. The current tendencies seem to bear this out. In the areas of the world where the sexual mutilation is most concentrated, economic development is at a low level and antihuman tendencies are at a high level. The contrast is especially evident in the USA where the circumcision exploded in the postwar period from a very low level to nearly 90% in some areas. In this period the nature of the USA as a nation has been deeply altered in numerous ways, beyond what can be listed here.

But the deepest impact of the process that may have begun in ancient Egypt is the development of the oligarchic process that the mutilation of the natural system of humanity has enabled, for which the mutilation is evidently still continued. No other process in the history of civilization has drained the humanist power of society more rapidly and devastatingly then the oligarchic process that thrives in proportion to which society becomes self-mutilated, self-isolated, self-debilitated; and in no other nation is the contrast more evident than in the USA in the postwar period where the oligarchic dominance exploded in proportion with the society's increased self-mutilation, self-isolation, and self-debilitation.

Escaping from the oligarchic trap

Yes, an escape is possible.. As human beings we have the capacity to understand the nature of the trap and raise ourselves above the entrapping circumstances. By discerning the principles of civilization and acting on them, the same end can be achieved that the natural system is designed to promote, such as cooperative intimacy in culture, science, technology, politics, and so on, and the way we relate to one-another in the social domain.

Once the humanist bucket is empty, as we find it increasingly today, many aspects that once powered civilization then no longer exist whereby the result is a general collapse. We see the same on the larger scale as the power-density flowing into the solar system lessens, and the climate is getting colder, drier, cloudier, and less stable with increasing cosmic radiation. We see there too a general collapse of what we have been accustomed to, which we may not see again for 90,000 years. In terms of the climate that we have become accustomed to during the last 10,000 years we face a major crisis as the holiday is ending which we refuse to accept and refuse to prepare for.

We see a similar crisis happening in civilization when the powering bucket runs empty, which society accepts erroneously as a natural state, and so doesn't stir its stumps and its mind to alter the state. When the humanist bucket is empty, civilization dies, but ironically society doesn't rouse itself into a revolution in self-perception to change its course. Thus, with the bucket running empty a crisis erupts that sweeps the world while society fails to master the simplest challenges and no longer even aims at overcoming the crisis. Some calls are put forth for a change in leadership, which in most cases is necessary as an emergency response, but this by itself doesn't fill the bucket. We face a triple task on this front of filling the bucket back up.

1. We face the task to raise-up the Principle of the General Welfare, and not just superficially, but intimately.

2. We face the task to rebuild our humanity expressed in science, culture, housing, education, health care, food, industrialization, energy use, and so on.

3. Since we are in a crisis, we also face the task to unleash a brand new industrial revolution with efficient materials, energy-intensive processes, and high-tech automated production.

We also need to realize that we have the means within us to fulfill this critical task. We have no need for 'external' resources. The energy to refill the bucket lies in our humanity. The energy for civilization has many names. Some call it love, some call it truth. Some call it the human spirit, the power of the human mind, the discovery of principles, the monument called human life. Some also call it our soul, a sense of soul that connects the present with the future to create a bright new world on the road of progress that never existed before. We have even created a few faint examples of how all this is done during the times of the great periods of renaissance. However, with the bucket being near empty we need to do more.

In today's age of a deep collapse crisis we need to rebuild the foundation on which civilization rests, which is the human foundation. Considering how deep the erosion of humanity has reached, our first response on the road of universal love needs to be the automated production of free housing to end rent slavery, slum living, and of course homelessness. Without a secure home base society has no foundation to build on. The same goes for all the other key items, food sufficiency, food quality, culture, science, healthcare, energy, and civil infrastructures including education. None of these are luxury items. Society should supply them to one another as much as possible for free, especially housing for which the technology, materials, and energy resources have been sitting unused on the shelf for 50 years already.

Principles for an energy-rich civilization

When the bucket is empty and rebuilding of the power of civilization is critical, two natural principles stand in the forefront. One is the principle of least action and the other is the principle of energy intensive production.

1. The Least Action Principle is extensively evident in nature. It provides for processes by which a result is produced with the least action or the least time, and so on. For example when a number of soap bubbles are crowded together on a surface of water, they form a pattern of hexagons where they meet, which is the most efficient form to divide a space with the shortest circumference. The bees build their honeycombs that way as the construction requires the least amount of wax. Automated industrial processes fall into this category as the product is produced with the least amount of human labor.

2. Energy intensive production is critical, because it enables products that cannot be produced otherwise, such as steel making, glass making, metal shaping, or melting basalt, and so on.

When the above two principles are combined, automated housing production can be made so efficient that the houses can be given away for free as a form of credit for the future that is 'repaid' with a more efficient civilization.

Another form of the least action principle, applied to the long-distance movement of fresh water for irrigation and so on, would be to convey the water in arteries afloat in water, such as across oceans. No gigantic infrastructures would be required to move vast volumes of water to wherever on earth it would be needed. With the utilization of these efficient principles, which humanity is fully capable of, the very concept of economics becomes revolutionized. It would open the gates to a new future that the returning Ice Age cannot touch. With the two above principles we could lay floating bridges across the oceans to link the continents, and lay down floating platforms for agriculture across the tropics, secure from glaciation.

If this becomes our intention, our future becomes secure, which otherwise we may not have at all. While there is nothing we can do about the cosmic energy bucket reverting back to its Pleistocene state of general emptiness, staging a New Ice Age on Earth, there is a lot that we can do in the way we respond and create New World for ourselves in a New Age of universal humanity.

Crashing the oligarchic machine

Without human development and progress, none of the above is possible, for then the oligarchic machine will realize its intention, which is, as has been stated on numerous occasions and in numerous ways, to reduce the human population on the Earth to less than a billion, which implies eradicating 6 billion people as fast as possible. 

While this is ultimately not possible, it is the intention. It is not possible because no matter how hard the masters of oligarchy bite the heel of humanity; their 'poison' is not greater than humanity and therefore will not kill it. This does not mean that horrendous damage may not be inflicted. To the contrary. The oligarchy of the world has emptied its own bucket with its ongoing destruction of humanity. There is nothing left for the oligarchy to loot in a disabled civilization. It finds itself in an end game trying to stem the tide of its doom. In this end game it way well try to take humanity to its doom with it. Society present reaction is, to lay itself down to die as demanded. Yes, this is already happening. The masters of oligarchy demand humanity to take a large chunk of the food produced in an already starving world, and burn the food under the biofuels mandate. The agricultural resources that are presently diverted to producing food to be burned in the form of biofuels, would normally feed 100 million people. This massive burning of food in a world where a billion people live in chronic starvation adds up to a silent holocaust of genocide that claims the life of 100 million people each year. This silent holocaust that vast segments of society subscribe to pales the Nazi holocaust a 100-fold. This is how empty the bucket of our humanity has become. It illustrates how deeply isolated and disconnected society has become from its own humanity. This is the arena where the greatest amount of progress needs to be wrought. Technologically the Ice Age Challenge can be met with relative ease, and work along this line (see Dynamic Ice Age Renaissance) would be already happening if society would be committed to master the deep inner challenge involved in defending its humanity. How far away society stands from this commitment is evident in the near-zero opposition in society against the oligarchic intention to eradicate 6 billion people under the heading of "population reduction." The bucket of our humanity is that empty. There is so little strength left in society that the simplest political tasks in its self-defence seems impossible to accomplish, like impeaching a dangerously corrupt president who committed crimes against the nation and its constitution, or like simply reinstating a proven and effective legislation that outlaws financial predatory actions on society. The bucket is so deeply empty, with society so deeply isolated from one another that the sense of the nation has become lost and the sense of universal humanity is fading like the vanishing daylight at nightfall.

A long time ago I explored in a chapter of a novel the very challenge that we are now facing (see The Incompetence of the King?), which has become critical. As the political layers are peeled away in the story the real challenge comes to light as a lack of love, not emotional love, but the universal love in society for its humanity. Thus the question arises again; how much love do we have still left to reverse the trend and build a New World on? A hundred years ago the call was raised, "Break up cliques, level wealth with honesty, let worth be judged according to wisdom, and we get better views of humanity."   The call sets forth wealth and honesty as opposites. Society's failure to see this distinction in its lingering lack of universal love has protected the festering disease instead of protecting humanity. The failure has brought us to the imminent financial and economic collapse of much of the world, or as the American economist Lyndon LaRouche has put it recently, together with an answer to the problem:

 "We're on the verge of the greatest financial collapse in modern history... This system is finished: It's finished now... What we're approaching now is not a recession or a depression. What we're experiencing now is a breakdown crisis, in which the economy breaks down. We're now at the doom of civilization as we've now known it... We have to go to a credit system rather than a monetarist system: And under a monetarist system, the rules of behavior are completely different. The problem is, under the present monetarist system, the rules of behavior, both political behavior and other behavior, are leading us toward destruction! We have been going to the edge of destruction because of those beliefs... 

"Mankind gives (to itself) credit. What's credit? Credit is the debt you go into, to build up the productivity of the coming generation. So by giving credit to those who are yet to be born, you create the opportunity for realization of the meaning of the life...  which brings the next generation into a higher level and prevents it from sliding back into an old level. This is the essence of economy. That's the meaning of a credit, as is understood by the founders of this nation." **

The idea of credit as a national system, enabling the self-development of society through the institution of its government was a critical factor in how Ben Franklin organized the US Constitutional Convention in 1787 that established the USA by intention as a credit system, as an article in EIW points out:

"...(it) gave the national government real power over the credit of the country, holding out the promise that an industrial economy would one day overwhelm and eliminate slavery... 

Today we are confronted with an economic nightmare in the collapse of the predatory, “globalist” financial system that has come to replace the Constitutional system founded with the United States. That original system was established in a war against the empire. The economy, and that Constitution, can only be restored together."

Progress is one of the great natural faces of humanity, revealing the native quality of humanity, the quality of Mind that is perpetually in motion and developing itself as from a boundless basis, or as Nicolas of Cusa pointed out during the Golden Renaissance; the symbol for humanity is the sphere that is unique and absolute, that is without beginning nor end, like the rotations and revolutions of the universe of Mind that go on eternally.

In the order of Science, in which the universal Principle of all that is real is above what it reflects, all is one grand concord, the very reality and foundation of civilization that the masters of empire may aim to destroy, while they destroy themselves in the process and those who ride on their coat tails. The hidden name of empire is destruction, which is now coming to the surface in the face of its self-made doom and of those who cling to it. Thus we see in the face of human progress the inhuman face of empire stripped of its coverings, the face of a mocking spectacle, the system of oligarchy, the face of the self-declared enemy of humanity!

The future of humanity rests on the dawning recognition of its profound quality as human beings, a quality that has through the ages inspired a sense of awe and love whenever a spark of it appeared and caused a period of renaissance. A sunrise in the wake of the historic dawning of the sense of humanity now lies before us. The Universe literally beckons us to get off our easy chair and rise to meet the greatest challenge that has ever stood before humanity in the entire history of civilization, which is the Ice Age Challenge that cannot and will not be avoided. With the power of scientific discovery we discern the Universe as saying to us that the grandest holiday that humanity ever had under the Sun is over. The interglacial pulse is over.

In the cycles of its powerful electric dynamics, the solar system's bucket of extreme energy-density that gave us the wonderful warm holiday anomaly is now near-empty. In the tongue of science the Universe is saying to us with precursors that we already see, that we have the challenge before us to compensate the near-empty astrophysical bucket by filling our humanist bucket to the brim.

To date, society still shies away from this challenge. The history of fascism, the rising of monetarism, the silent holocaust of the bio-fuels, the promise of global mass-depopulation, the financial and economic collapse sweeping the world, none have inspired humanity to reach for its freedom by the power of its love for one another that would raise up a brighter future than was ever imagined. However, what has not been achieved thus far, the Ice Age Challenge may inspire us to achieve, and not because this new challenge is great in its scope, but because the meeting of the challenge offers humanity a new world that is several orders of magnitude brighter than anything that has been seen on the horizon of the future since civilization began. The Ice Age Challenge cannot be met on the platform of the small and primitive, with humanity having its hands tied behind its back with the shackles of monetarism, oligarchism, and their looting, and terror and wars. The Ice Age Challenges promises to become humanity's final frontier where it is challenged to discover not only the power of its own humanity, but also the physical power of the electric universe that lays endless energy resources within our reach. Understanding the Electric Nature of the Solar System

An understanding of the electric nature of the solar system is critical for understanding the unfolding climate-dynamics of the Earth reverting back to its 'normal' Pleistocene climate that is typically 30 times colder than the Little Ice Age had been that was the first big impact on civilization in the ending phase now in progress of our warm interglacial holiday, the Holocene Epoch. The Little Ice Age gave us 200 years of a cold spell, followed by 200 years of renewed warming, which is in turn followed by the cooling trend now in progress. Superimposed on this is also the potential phase change of the long cycle that is logically rooted in the Oort Cloud resonance with a potential new 1000-year cycle. None of that is evident on the mechanistic platform of perception where people dream that the interglacial holiday will never end, or at least not for a few thousand years. In the stupor of this dreaming the critical preparations for the Earth getting back to its normal climate are not being made, which, when delayed for too long may cause the extinction of much of humanity, or all of it when wars of food are unleashed, instead of the needed new infrastructures for new food resources being built.

Acknowledging the Electric Galaxy is Critical for Civilization

By understanding the electric nature of the dynamics of the solar system, a number of the mythical perceptions about the nature of the galaxy become cleared up as well, and in the flow of the advancing recognition we also find a brighter face for our humanity. The search for truth raises expanding ripples that touch not only the countless astrophysical myths, but also the numerous myths that have darkened the face in which we see ourselves.

In the astrophysical schools we find the near universally accepted myth of stars orbiting the galactic center that is physically impossible to occur. And we find numerous secondary myths drawn from the mythical perception of orbiting stars, such as the density wave theory, and the 62-million year extinction cycle theory, and so on, including the Big-Bang dream world of super massive black holes, dark energy, dark matter, and the myth of the Great Attractor that forces the universe to expand.

Unfortunately many of the myths, if not all of them, have been intentionally staged for the confusion they generate, and for their debilitating effect on scientific progress. Mysticism and its disabling effect on science serves to keep the oligarchic political system alive that is itself equally as mythical, as it has no real fundamental principles of productive economics to support its existence. Stealing and causing debilitation are its only tools for asserting itself. For this reason science is presently kept in chains for as long as the oligarchic system, the system of empire, rules and directs science into impotence. Until this scene changes with the dawning love in society for one-another and its long-obscured humanity, the electric nature of the universe, the galaxy, and the solar system will likely remain obscured.

The imperative for the chains laid on science is obvious. Just imagine what would result if the chains were removed so that the potential of humanity would become general knowledge, of it's having access to the vast electric energy streams that surround our planet, that also power the Sun, and on Earth power the fury of lightning, tornadoes, and Hurricanes. The potential for a world with boundless cosmic energy resources for human use, for all times to come, would wipe out the oligarchic system of empire that reaps its pompous living by exploiting resource scarcity for profit, especially energy resource scarcity. The development of endless energy resources would end the entire oligarchic system and usher in the age of a New Renaissance for humanity. Its promise is similar in nature today, though greater in scope, as the Hamiltonian promise had been in the late 1700s that the power of national credit and manufacturing would simply end the system of slavery as an inevitable outcome of a progressing humanity.

In our age the critical barrier is the blocked recognition of the electric nature of the solar system and the Earth in its context. But this barrier too, can be broken. The chains can be removed. Indeed why would we tarry now? Let's not keep this larger promise waiting, and with it the associated brighter face of humanity. Let's not keep them forever obscured. The dawn of the New Ice Age ahead impels us to realize this promise that we find in ourselves and create a vast new Renaissance on its foundation that rests on a taller stage and inspires a higher starting point. The coal-fired steam engine that powered the industrial revolution in the 1700s and 1800s will find its modern equivalent in the thorium nuclear powered high-temperature industrial infrastructures for the automated production of almost anything that can be made of steel, glass, and basalt, like the production of entire houses made of basalt, and water infrastructures and floating bridges. This New Industrial Revolution can be started tomorrow if society loves its humanity enough to give itself a New World. All the resources for it already exist. In like manner, the historic development of railways in the 1800s that began bridging the continents, will be echoed again in the New Industrial Revolution in the form of floating bridges spanning the oceans, linking the world, and serving along their course the new age of floating agriculture far from the reach of the New Ice Age ahead. The promise that we find in our humanity is scarcely imagined. It is for infinity, not timidity. Its rising will sweep in the lawful end of the oligarchic system for all times to come, a pitiful spectacle for which our future world would be too rich to find a place in.

I invite you to celebrate our new future that is anchored in our humanity, and the celebrate it with Antonin Dvorak's Symphony #8,  courtesy of the Columbia University Orchestra performed in its Fall concerto in 2000.  Dvorak's Eighth Symphony was written in 1889 in Bohemia, drawn from the Bohemian folk music, prior to the composer's coming to America.
