Cosmology for the 21st Century : the Electric Universe

“A real cosmology must be a broad and coherent natural philosophy. It may always be incomplete, based on our limitations, but to be valid there can be no exceptions in our experience. In particular, cosmology must address issues of life and the human condition. Therefore it must be a truly interdisciplinary pursuit.” – Wallace Thornhill

In October 2014 Astrotas sponsored philosopher & physicist  Wallace Thornhill  from Canberra to present the paradigm shattering  Electric Universe theory. This was a truly mind expanding talk drawing on his 5 decades of accumulated knowledge. Wallace is a modern Galileo whose work, following on from that of Ralph Juergens, is at odds with the current erroneous cosmology of the Big Bang and Einstein’s theory of Relativity. It was pretty amazing to have people flying in from Melbourne and Sydney to listen to him!wal carrie juan

Wallace kindly helped us put together a video of his talk which serves as a fine introduction to his life’s work without overwhelming technical detail.  In preparing his talk I asked him to assume no background knowledge of electricity in the audience except an ability to put batteries in the right way round.

The good news – no global warming, we have a unified theory of everything, the universe is not full of weird behaviors and stuff can travel faster than light

The bad news – no more alternate universes or time travel for Dr Who script writers, and we have to somehow convince more mainstream scientists to walk away from imaginary complex mathematical models and their (expensive) errors eg. designing a comet lander for an icy ‘dirty snowball’ instead of a rocky chunk ejected electrostatically from a planet.


Books mentioned by Wal:

The following month he was off to Portland Oregon for a high powered EU workshop where he delivered the technical version of his stunning “Theory of Everything” in a mere 45 mins! Cosmology for the 21st Century – video below.  Further personal commentary on the EU theory are in posts in this blog (including an simple explanation of the electric theory of gravity discussed briefly by Wal ) It is time to rewrite the textbooks!

Wal at Astrotas Oct 2014

Wallace Thornhill  is now the chief scientific advisor to the Thunderbolts Project http://www.thunderbolts.info. He has a degree in physics and electronics from Melbourne University and began postgraduate studies with Prof. Victor Hopper’s upper atmosphere research group. Before entering university he had been inspired by Immanuel Velikovsky’s best-selling controversial book, Worlds in Collision, which contends that “our ancestors may have witnessed awe inspiring electrical events in the heavens—the source of myths and symbols around the world.” Rather than pursue a career in astrophysics in an academia generally hostile to such a line of enquiry, Wal turned to computing, working with IBM and the prestigious IBM Systems Development Institute in Canberra, followed by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs while continuing his studies of plasma and electricity in astronomy privately. He has been mentored by Velikovsky himself.

In 1994 his life changing meeting with David Talbott, at the Velikovsky Symposium in Oregon led to their collaboration on the Thunderbolts Project. Together they have authored two books – the Electric Universe and Thunderbolts of the Gods

He is a 2010 Telesio-Galilei Academy of Science Laureate. In 2011 he delivered “Stars in an Electric Universe” as the John Chappell Memorial Lecture at the Natural Philosophy Alliance, Maryland University https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFcNHHxSFl4 He received their Sagnac Award for his lifelong contribution to science in 2013.

Above that Wallace is a passionate pacifist and a dedicated educator.

“The Australian Aborigines have their stories of the dream time where there’s a rainbow serpent that changed the face of the Earth and did all sorts of amazing things when there were two suns in the sky and the rainbow snake swallowed one of them. All of these kinds of things have an actual explanation in terms of plasma physics but they have no explanation in standard astronomy.
The result of that is that our cultures are built around stories we don’t understand, but the electric universe illuminates those as well. So we begin to see our real place in the scheme of things and that is a liberating thing. It is something that the human race desperately needs I think because we are at present behaving quite irrationally. When you look at our situation in the universe and here we are fighting over petty things. We’re destroying our environment willy nilly.” – Wal Thornhill, SOTT interview

When I announced Wallace Thornhill was coming to give a talk to Astrotas some people ( not to mention me! ) were flabbergasted we could get such a high profile international speaker with our carefully hoarded little budget. This is simply a testimony to how NICE Wal is and the genuine passion he has for his subject, and for communicating the workings of plasma physics to all ages and stages. Wal is excellent company, likes his gluten freefood and drink 😉 It was a pleasure to host him and we had some fun before and after the talk with a quick visit to a few local attractions. (This warmness and niceness is a hallmark of ALL the past Astrotas speakers – just amazing souls, as well as very knowledgeable people. )

Lightning Bolts within Cells


A. “Cellular Circuit: A cell can be thought of as a circuit made up of capacitors and resistors. Its membrane and those of its organelles, such as the nucleus, act like capacitors. The briny liquid encased within the membranes, the cytosol and nucleoplasm, is conductive and so can be modeled as resistors.” http://www.biotele.com/bioelectric.htm Illustration: Bryan Christie Design

Lurking deep inside an ordinary cell are electric fields strong enough to cause a bolt of lightning. “The existence of strong electric fields across cellular membranes is accepted as a basic fact of cell biology. Maintaining gradients of charged molecules and ions allows for many cellular functions, from control over cell volume to the electrical discharges of nerve and muscle cells. The fact that cells have internal electric fields, however, is surprising. Kopelman presented his results at the annual meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology. “There has been no skepticism as to the measurements,” says Kopelman. “But we don’t have an interpretation.” http://www.technologyreview.com/news/409171/lightning-bolts-within-cells/

The electric universe theory isn’t surprised that it doesn’t stop on the outside of a cell at all since the wiring runs continously through the beautiful living matrix model.

B. the Living Matrix model of the body and cell – James Oschmann

I felt quite underawed by this year’s Nobel Prize for medicine – ‘place cells‘. Part of the disapointment stems from this looking retro and pedestrian after recent findings in neuroplastic research. Important no doubt but not electrifying news, not a patch on reading Energy Medicine, The Scientific Basis James L. Oschman, 2000

Modern neurophysiology focuses primarily on the activity of less than half of the cells in the brain (Becker 1990a, 1991). The ‘neuron doctrine’ holds that all functions of the nervous system are the result of activities of the neurons. Integration of brain function is therefore regarded as arising from the massive interconnectivity of the neurons. This view is incomplete because it ignores an evolutionarily more ancient informational system residing in the perineural connective tissue cells that constitute more than half of the cells in the brain. Perineural cells encase every nerve fiber, down to their finest terminations throughout the body. The perineural system is a direct current communication system  reaching to every innervated tissue. The perineural system  establishes a ‘current of injury’ that controls injury repair. Historically, the injury potential was discovered before the discovery of resting and action potentials of nerves (Davson 1970). The current of injury is generated at the site of a wound, and continues until repair is complete. James L. Oschman

A number of biologists have concluded that the frequency overlap of Schumann resonances and biological fields is not accidental, but is the culmination of a close interplay between geomagnetic and biomagnetic fields over evolutionary time James L. Oschman

As mentioned in an earlier post I came to hear of Wallace Thornhill’s Electric Universe theory via the bio-electric side of things. I footled off to see David ‘eating for beauty’ Wolfe on a rawfood/permaculture retreat in Byron Bay. Like good hippies we were supposed to walk around Leilani’s garden barefoot, ‘earthing’. I had visions of hookworm and ant bites so was a little slow to warm to the idea ( despite a grounding hug from David! ) but in the end I came around to it. Longtime members may have seen little ads for Earthing products on the astro website – we are connected to the cosmic grid! The catalyst was hearing James Oschmann lecture on the body being a liquid crystal electric circuit.

GIY (geek it yourself) anti-gravity


Satellites recorded a dip in Earth’s gravity field in West Antarctica “due to extensive ice loss” oct 2014 news.com.au

antigravityOldschool Anti-gravity with NASA is temporary, uncomfortable, precarious.
Compare this to the Electric Universe understanding of gravity as due to simple charges – the familiar negative and positive, south and north poles which attract and repel. Our universe is Yin and Yang.
cloud sofa

Newton’s law of gravity contains an empirical constant G. The electrical model of gravity has a variable G that depends also on the charge distribution in the body.

This is the power of understanding an electromagnetic universe. We manipulate rather than fight gravity as NASA does. We are no longer constantly falling.

Watch a frog levitated using a 10 tesla magnetic coil ! (Please explain = http://www.physics.org/facts/frog-really.asp) Note: the cloud bed is at this stage a concept by D.K. Wei from KooTouch but you may buy the slab below for USD$1.5 million from http://www.universearchitecture.com Take off earrings before vacuuming underneath.

GIY  bedWell I can hear some folk tuttutting, saying this is nothing more than children’s toys and highschool physics – can we call this manipulation of magnetic fields anti-gravity? Let’s watch Prof Eric Laithwaite demonstrate how to levitate and notice how he has the ability to achieved lateral stability ( those beds need some tethering strings in the corners )

Our first steps into new technology can begin with toys; from fireworks to moonshots, from spinning tops to gyroscopes – it is that simple. Devoid of complex calculations we can begin our mastery of superconductors with dry ice from the icecream shop, some magnets and a toy train.

The really big bangs are the ones that go on in the heads of theoretical physicists when they try to put together the pieces handed to them by experimental physicists. – Martin Gardner.

In 1992 Evgeny Podkletnov published a paper describing how he had stumbled across a “gravity shielding” effect while running a routine test on one of his superconductors http://www.scribd.com/doc/39625078  If you want to see what the big boys are playing with now, head over to Wallace Thornhill’s blog http://www.holoscience.com/wp/antigravity

NASA Quest


NASA does of course understand some aspects of electricity and plasma physics – its just that they are clinging at the same time to gravitational theory. This mashup prevents them from predicting the phenomena of space, electromagnetic or otherwise, and gives rise to increasingly absurd explanations for what they are finding. Gravitational theory has taken us from terrifying blackholes that suck all matter into them, to microscopic ones that somehow don’t – and now apparently supermassive blackholes that ‘blow bubbles’ of cosmic proportions spitting out enormous amounts of matter. No wonder Dr Joe is surprised beyond his wildest imagination!

It was a blessed NASA project that my son did a decade ago that left a large crater of doubt in my mind about how much we actually understand about the solar system – all the teachers modules and children’s work is still on the web here – http://quest.arc.nasa.gov/projects/space/robotdesign/ I think I am obliged to offer the Advocate an Electric Universe update since they gave us space for a full page article on that little diversion in Newspapers in Education back in 2003 ( it’s Tassie – lot of slow news days )

We enjoyed 8 weeks in a virtual class for schoolkids to pitch their ideas for a robot to the team from NASA who were actually designing a robot helper for astronauts aboard the space station. It culminated in the novelty of getting up at 4am to watch a grainy live webcast in the days when our bandwith and equipment made carrier pigeons a better option. This was sadly a month after the Challenger disaster so the ISS, which was still being built, was especially topical, but before the GFC so the space program apparently still had funds to spare for outreach.

NASA cultivated a warm and wonderful atmosphere of intellectual acceptance; there was no right or wrong. As the preliminary designs were discussed the teams quickly adopted the most useful of each others ideas – he got such a buzz out of doing it, but in the process enormous BLACK Intellectual HOLES in the theory of a gravity based solar system ( let alone a universe ) were revealed.

We were sitting on the trampoline ( me earth him moon ) attempting to satisfy ourselves that the plum pudding theory of gravity/space as a fabric worked, and a spanner ( pingpongball ) dropped out of the spacecraft closer to earth’s fat bottom than the moon’s little one would probably go earth wards, despite the worrying ability of the moon to influence the earthly tides at the same time. We live near the beach so tides were already part of his cosmology. Luckily the mission was basically run by engineers and the task was a pretty straight forward engineering one. If there was any sticky issue with adult explanations not holding water, one could put on the NASA video of astronauts playing with their Toys in Space to see what stuff does. and so fall back on “because we know it does, we did the experiment“. It’s niggled me ever since till I stumbled over EU and Wallace Thornhill. http://www.holoscience.com/wp/electric-gravity-in-an-electric-universe/

“Gravity is due to radially oriented electrostatic dipoles inside the Earth’s protons, neutrons and electrons.”

I’m going to quote NASA response to Michael’s design “The best way to solve a problem is to really understand it. Keep up the good work.” and I’ll quote Michael’s 7 yo wisdom as well – “he might learn the wrong thing. If he does there is a delete button.
The Electric Universe is calling us to use our childlike eyes to see when the Emperor has no clothes, to truly understand our universe so we can solve the big problems. We have to hit the delete button on a few things – like climate change, the nuclear fusion powered sun, to do so. It is also calling on us to do the experiments – and Wallace Thornhill will be talking at our next meeting about the Electric Universe experiments taking place in Canada now.
