Buckminster Fuller to the International Union of Architects (I. U. A. ) at their VIIth Congress in London, England in July, 1961, launching the World Design Science Decade. He proposed then that the architectural schools around the world be encouraged by the I. U. A. to invest the next ten years in a continuing problem of how to make the total world’s resources which [in 1961] serve only 40% serve 100% of humanity through competent design despite a continuing decrease of metal resources per capita.

http://coldtype.net/ }Coldtype was launched eight years ago as a print publication to counter a belief – which still continues – that the best way for newspapers to solve the problem of declining readership is to tinker with the design without too much thought to the quality – or quantity – of content. It continues its original mission: to reprint examples of excellent writing from around the world in a format that emphasizes how a neat and unobtrusive design can enhance, without subsuming, the power of The Word. That’s the mission, but the point is much simpler: Great writing should be available to as many people as possible – and preferably free of charge. Hence our new pdf and internet distribution. I hope you find our postings in pdf format interesting, informative and amusing. If you do (or if you don’t), contact me at email@example.com. Your feedback is important.

The Independent Media Center is a network of collectively run media outlets for the creation of radical, accurate, and passionate tellings of the truth. We work out of a love and inspiration for people who continue to work for a better world, despite corporate media’s distortions and unwillingness to cover the efforts to free humanity. Established by various independent and alternative media organizations and activists in 1999, for the purpose of providing grassroots coverage of the World Trade Organization (WTO) protests in Seattle. The center acted as a clearinghouse of information for journalists, and provided up-to-the-minute reports, photos, audio and video footage through its website. Using the collected footage, the Seattle Independent Media Center produced a series of five documentaries, uplinked every day to satellite and distributed throughout the United States to public access stations. The center also produced its own newspaper, distributed throughout Seattle and to other cities via the internet, as well as hundreds of audio segments, transmitted through the web and Studio X, a 24-hour micro and internet radio station based in Seattle. The site, which uses a democratic open-publishing system, logged more than 2 million hits, and was featured on America Online, Yahoo, CNN, BBC Online, and numerous other sites. [That site is down now, but can be found on https://archive.org/ .]Through a decentralized and autonomous network, hundreds of media activists setup independent media centers in London, Canada, Mexico City, Prague, Belgium, France, and Italy over the next year.

March 2013 Update: “With the recent ending of the World Data Center system and their subsequent incorporation into the ICSU World Data System, NSSDC has suspended the publication of the monthly SPACEWARN Bulletin. Consequently issue 692 (July 2011) of the bulletin was the last one to be published. All past electronically accessible issues will continue to be available through the NSSDC, but no new issues will be forthcoming. NSSDC will continue to support documenting spacecraft launches, especially those of interest to the science community. The information from SPACEWARN has always been placed in the NSSDC Master Catalog (NMC). Spacecraft from any given month will continue to be inserted and updated as information becomes available and (with the NMC interface) users can generate monthly listings of spacecraft information or create other queries. NSSDC thanks the SPACEWARN community for their interest and support over the past decades. We hope that our continuing services are also valuable to you. “

http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2003/11aug_earthquakes/ }For many people, earthquakes are synonymous with unpredictability. They strike suddenly on otherwise normal days, and despite all the achievements of seismology, scientists still can’t provide warning of an impending quake in the way that weathermen warn of approaching storms. Electrical currents in rock might explain another curious observation: Scientists doing research with magnetometers just before major earthquakes have serendipitously recorded tiny, slow fluctuations in Earth’s magnetic field. One example happened during the Loma-Prieta earthquake that devastated San Francisco in 1989. Almost 2 weeks before the quake, readings of low-frequency magnetic signals (0.01-0.02 Hz) jumped up to 20 times above normal levels, and then spiked even higher the day of the quake. Measuring only 4 in. x 4 in. x 12 in., the satellite will operate for a year to see whether it can sift out magnetic signals generated by tectonic activity. The first six months of the mission will be spent calibrating the satellite and gathering baseline data. After that ground controllers will be looking in earnest for quakes.
http://www.neazoi.com/natradio/index.htm }One of the hottest research topics in this part of the electromagnetic spectrum is the possibility of earthquake precursors that could provide an early warning and save lives. The National Earthquake Information Center at the United States Geological Survey provides this and other near-real time maps, maintains searchable databases and other resources, a veritable Mecca of seismology. Fields and Waves in this region of the spectrum include magnetometers and electrometers for magnetic and electric fields to DC, and seismographs and gravimeters for mechanical and gravity waves.

These storms result from variations in the solar wind that produces major changes in the currents, plasmas, and fields in Earth’s magnetosphere. The solar wind conditions that are effective for creating geomagnetic storms are sustained (for several to many hours) periods of high-speed solar wind, and most importantly, a southward directed solar wind magnetic field (opposite the direction of Earth’s field) at the dayside of the magnetosphere. This condition is effective for transferring energy from the solar wind into Earth’s magnetosphere.

https://wahiduddin.net/saki/saki_date.php }The title The Bowl of Saki was chosen around 1921 by students of Hazrat Inayat Khan who published a book containing some of the inspiring phrases that they had been given by their teacher. The first edition of The Bowl of Saki was published in England in late 1921 or early 1922. The Bowl of Saki is a compendium of 366 brief quotations, one for each day of the year, selected from the teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan. Many of the quotes came directly from his lectures, while others came from his personal notebooks. Then, to help make the daily quotes more meaningful, each day I began including a few paragraphs of related text from the teachings of Inayat Khan. And after a few weeks I conducted a survey of the Bowl of Saki subscribers to see how many felt that the additional commentary was helpful. The response was overwhelmingly positive. So, I then set out on a great adventure to find relevant commentary for each and every one of the Bowl of Saki quotes.

Pop-ups block the page so that you cannot read the article. Pity, their article on Thom and Catastrophe Theory was good. We’ll send you a copy of the page if you don’t want to register. 2016 Update: In 1968 René Thom publishes his first paper on the topological mathematics of catastrophe theory. After eight years, the less specialized media, such as the Scientific American, described his work. Actually, Thom is concerned with describing symbolically and graphically the basic types of ways in which situations buildup and come crashing down. His passion to understand the world geometrically led him to invent catastrophe theory, which sought to quantify how continuous actions (sailing along the smooth surface of a lake) could suddenly give way to discontinuous change (plunging over a waterfall). Such events, he believed, could be described with their own topography: abstract mathematical forms, with names like the cusp, the swallowtail and the butterfly, that could be used to chart and even predict life’s surprises, bringing them within reach of reason. The theory, brought public in his 1972 book ”Structural Stability and Morphogenesis,” caused a sensation, and soon prognosticators both amateur and professional were applying his ideas to biology, sociology and, predictably, the stock market. He died in 2002. That website is still blocked by large, aggressive pop-ups; view it here for free. Download both items.

The first so-called "Dark Age", meaning a period from which little is known despite much information before and after that period, occurred about 3100 BC to 3000 BC. For example in Mesopotamia this period is called Jemdet Nasr. About 3100 BC there was suddenly a change to more primitive ages compared to the preceding Uruk period. For example the numerical token system dwindled. 3000 BC however there was a sudden recovery. This is called the Early Dynasty, which can be described as the first known culture, that began to have some kind of a centralized system.

Al Gore has been given poor advice. Like Darwin’s theory of evolution and Big Bang cosmology, global warming by greenhouse gas emissions has undergone that curious social process in which a scientific theory is promoted to a secular myth. When in fact, science is ignorant about the source of the heat — the Sun. The really inconvenient truth is that we cannot control Nature. But we can begin to learn our true place in the Universe and figure out how to cope rationally with inevitable change. Clearly, reducing air pollution is an admirable goal in itself. But we must not be deluded into thinking it will affect climate significantly. The connection between warming and atmospheric pollution is more asserted than demonstrated, while the connection with variations in the Sun has been demonstrated.

Based on a swarm of earthquakes and large vertical movements of the seafloor, the eruption started on April 24, 2015. While instruments at the site clearly picked up on these signals, the activity is not strong enough to be felt by anyone on land or large enough to produce a tsunami. In the fall of 2014 the scientists posted a blog predicting that Axial would erupt within the next 15 months. They based their prediction on a repeated pattern of seafloor elevation changes before, during, and after eruptions since 1998.

Mild springtime conditions occurred in the first half of the 12th century, as well as from ~1400-1780. The amount of climate warming since the mid-20th century appears unprecedented in the millennium-long context. In addition to the development of the tree ring-based temperature history, the interdisciplinary research team* compared past climate variability with human history. Plague outbreaks, political conflicts and migration movements often matched periods of cooler temperatures. Moreover, fluctuations in settlement activity appear to be linked to climate variability. The Black Death in the mid-14th century, the Thirty Years War between ~1618-1648 and the Russian crusade of Napoleon in 1812 are three most prominent examples of climate-culture interactions.

Using more than 35 years of data from the Wilcox Solar Observatory at Stanford University and from the United States Geological Survey, a model was constructed using patterns discerned in the polar magnetic fields of the sun. These patterns in solar magnetism were informally observed to match with the occurrence of large earthquakes on our planet, so mathematical modeling was used to formally develop an algorithm describing those relationships.

I would guess the EU explanation is that when there are few sunspots, there is less current flowing out of the Sun to transmit across the Earth’s atmosphere (the leaky capacitor), and hence less rainfall – rain is a current-carrying medium.
http://sciencenow.sciencemag.org/ }One mechanism which can give rise to a notable solar/climate link was suggested by the late Edward Ney of the U. of Minnesota, in 1959. He suggested that any climatic sensitivity to the density of tropospheric ions would immediately link solar activity to climate. This is because the solar wind modulates the flux of high-energy particles coming from outside the solar system. These particles, the cosmic rays, are the dominant source of ionization in the troposphere. Thus, a more active sun which accelerates a stronger solar wind, would imply that as cosmic rays diffuse from the outskirts of the solar system to its center, they lose more energy. Consequently, a lower tropospheric ionization rate results. Over the 11-yr solar cycle and the long term variations in solar activity, these variations amount to typically a 10% change in this ionization rate. Moreover, it now appears that there is a climatic variable sensitive to the amount of tropospheric ionization – clouds –The Milky Way Galaxy’s Spiral Arms and Ice-Age Epochs and the Cosmic Ray Connection.

http://www.webpages.uidaho.edu/~barannyk/Research/Barannyk_Papageorgiou_Petropoulos.pdf }This study shows theoretically and numerically that Rayleigh–Taylor instability can be removed by imposing a sufficiently strong electric field, even in the absence of surface tension. Inviscid flows have been considered and the fluids are taken to be perfect dielectrics. The asymptotic limit of a thin upper layer has been studied in detail and a system of coupled evolution equations for the interfacial shape and the corresponding horizontal velocity, have been derived. These equations support periodic traveling waves and also solitary waves. The stability of these waves is left for a future investigation. Numerical solutions of the initial value problem on periodic domains show that when Rayleigh–Taylor instability is active the model predicts wall touchdown in finite time; this can be suppressed by a strong enough electric field and our numerical work indicates that the system evolves to time oscillatory nonlinear motions in such cases.

In this presentation, Bruce Leybourne will present climate as the interplay between Field Aligned Currents in the ionosphere and Induction Currents charging Earth’s core. He will show that climate change is driven by a transformer effect between plasma ring currents coupled to solar winds, which induce telluric currents in upper mantle structures grounded to the core. This transformer effect is strongest at the south-pole where the polar plasma jet is more strongly coupled to an upper mantle ridge structure encircling Antarctica. This effect exerts climate control over the planet via aligned tectonic vortex structures along the Western Pacific rim, electrically connected to the core. This is consistent with the “Earth Endogenous Energy” theory (Gregori, 2002 – Earth as a rechargeable battery/capacitor). Intense solar outbursts result in intense plasma impinging upon Earth, creating a modulating effect to atmospheric pressure, global Jet Stream patterns, global warming and cooling cycles. These changes are directly linked to charging and discharging phases of the Earth and result in fluctuations of Earth’s magnetic field cycles in rhythm with the climate. Bruce Leybourne is current Research Director of Institute for Advanced Studies in Climate Change (IASCC) and also works with Geostream Consulting LLC and Climate-Stat Inc. to improve geophysical-weather models. His education includes bachelor and master degrees in geology from the University of North Carolina and University of Southern Mississippi respectively. On the subjects of geophysics and climate, Bruce has spoken at many international conferences, authored and co-authored many papers and is currently organizing a book to reveal the true nature of climate change.

Gorizont-1 was designed specifically to support broadcast of the 1980 Olympic Games from Russia. The Gorizont satellites were primarily used for domestic and international communications. The Gorizont constellation in 1993-1994 established a tenth position in the geosynchronous ring for domestic needs and deployed three Gorizonts (one old, two new) to new locations in support of Rimsat, Ltd., the US-based firm leasing orbital slots from Tonga. In all, four Gorizont spacecraft were launched during 1993-1994, but one was lost due to a Proton launch failure. With no resident spacecraft being retired during the period, the number of active Gorizonts increased by the end of 1994 to its peak of 13.
http://www.astronautix.com/craft/shenzhou.htm }Given that China had not previously flown a major ELINT satellite, this was an enormous leap in Chinese military surveillance from space. Each orbital module remained in space as long as eight months after the other modules return to earth. That means the orbital modules of the Shenzhou spacecraft have been scanning the earth 90% of the time, day in and day out, since Shenzhou 3 was launched in March 2002. Data was dumped in ten-minute bursts when the spacecraft pass over Miyun, near Beijing. These missions would have given China’s equivalent to the American National Security Agency an excellent introduction into capabilities and problems in flying an operational ELINT satellite over a variety of targets and seasons of the year. The main objective, as was the case for low-altitude Soviet systems, would be to keep track of the US Navy, particularly carrier groups. Observations by Shenzhou 4 during the Iraq War would have been an intelligence windfall for the Chinese.

The iSWA system also addressees the technical challenge of presenting actionable space weather information in a form that is both easily accessible and useful to the NASA customer. All consumable iSWA system data products are referred to as “cygnets”. Each cygnet conveys specific space weather data or information for a specific region, effect, or measurement. The cygnets can be organized into categories or browsed collectively using the iSWA cygnet selection panel. The resulting iSWA system is a flexible, web‐based dissemination system for NASA‐relevant space weather information that combines forecasts from state‐of‐the‐art space weather models with concurrent space environment information from observations. iSWA is customer configurable.

http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/freeabs_all.jsp?reload=true&arnumber=752977 }We are trying to reconstruct some of the laws of music by exploring the nature of the Lambdoma diagram of harmonic whole-number ratios. We hypothesize that the effects of this music, because of its well-defined mathematical construct, are that of emotional and physical harmony (cenesthesia). We strongly suspect that it is the continuously sounding fundamental pitch, chosen by the player, that is one of the most important ingredients as to the physiological and psychological effects of true harmonic music. When colors, shapes, angles, and sounds are all synthesized into one experience, the encoding of seemingly disparate numerical concepts from interdisciplinary fields into a musical vocabulary of ratios and related specific frequencies might lead to greater insights.

I then calculated the frequencies to be in musically audible reference octaves. The Hertz frequencies fall between the cracks of a piano keyboard so the scale is not a familiar one in the Western world. My drawing on the cover of my book “Glass Bead and Knot Theory of Relationships” is a Lambdoma diagram of octaves that starts at the center and continues in a square spiral.

http://www.lambdoma.com/strawberryhill/BookPage.html }The Glass Bead and Knot Theory of Relationships. This small book was stimulated by a reading of Hermann Hess’ “Magister Ludi, the Glass Bead Game”, and was compiled as a brief guide to those who wish to apply the relationships between dimension (wavelength) and the harmonic intervals (frequencies) of music. The cover ill ustration depicts an ordering of harmonic relationships which lead to an example of a simple construction of a Lambdoma necklace. Another application of Lambdoma theory is in weaving, and yet another is in musical time signatures related to the ratios of musical keynotes which might help musical compositions become even more harmonious. (Item AT4 side 2). Charts, showing translations of Time in seconds, minutes, hours, days years and light-years, into musical frequencies, as well as Dimensions in inches, feet, meters and miles, might help others find their own correspondence to our particular universe.

Nowadays it is very unlikely to fail the test, but just in case, here it is. If Windows Media Player plays the tune, this pitch bend test will test your soundcard as well, similarly if the tune plays on any other midi file player that uses your soundcard to play the notes. If you are using the likes of Quicktime as your Midi File Player for web pages, it only tests the way your web page plug in plays the notes – because it has its own onboard sounds.
http://www.robertinventor.com/software/tunesmithy/Tips_for_better_sound_quality.htm }This page is mainly for the less techy users or newbies to computer music, who just want to get started, and to hear General Midi type midi clips on their computer and to hear the sounds that FTS plays properly tuned. Perhaps also you want to hear them played using the same instruments that you hear in the midi clips on this site. The sections about the FM7, Giga and the Garritan personal orchestra are also suitable for more techy users – with tips and tricks for using them with FTS.
http://www.schickele.com/profbio.htm }The conspiracy of silence that has surrounded P.D.Q. Bach (1807-1742)? for two centuries began with his own parents. He was the last and the least of the great Johann Sebastian Bach’s twenty-odd children, and he was certainly the oddest. His father ignored him completely, setting an example for the rest of the family (and indeed for posterity), with the result that P.D.Q. was virtually unknown during his own lifetime; in fact, the more he wrote, the more unknown he became. He finally attained total obscurity at the time of his death, and his musical output would probably have followed him into oblivion had it not been for the zealous efforts of Prof. Schickele. These efforts have even extended themselves to mastering some of the rather unusual instruments for which P.D.Q. liked to compose, such as the left-handed sewer flute, the windbreaker, and the bicycle.
http://www.sharewareconnection.com/fractal-tune-smithy-lambdoma-view.htm }The Lambdoma view in Fractal Tune Smithy let’s you play on an arrangement of musical ratios attributed to Pythagoras in which notes all in the same row or column play pure musical harmonies. The particular design and colour of this keyboard is due to Barbara Hero. You can play it using the mouse or the p.c. keyboard. The p.c. keyboard has some limitations as a musical instrument – so only four rows at a time are accessible, and it is also normal to find that many chords of three or more notes can’t be played from your p.c. keyboard. If you want to use this view to its full potential you need Barbara Hero’s keyboard – see http://www.lambdoma.com for details.

http://www.svpvril.com/musint.html }Harmony is concerned with chords, and every chord is a combination of intervals sounded simultaneously. Any systematic study of harmony must therefore begin with an examination of intervals. The following interval data was found in many obscure and not so obscure sources. We found others but only included those having numeric values. You will note, some information conflicts with others. The intervals that form the basis of music, and their measurements relative to one another are (generally held) as follows…

http://www.wolfgang-fulda.de/indexe.html }On this page he describes his working Lambdoma. “An attempt to realize the pythagorean table, described by Albert von Thimus in the 1870’s, as an online playable instrument. Especially Hans Kayser (“Akróasis”, 1946, etc.) used and explained it extensively. Principles of proportion and interrelationship of tones as fractions of integers can be studied this way. The 64 colored fields represent freely programmable parts of the infinite net of frequencies deriving from a given basic note as overtones and “undertones” (the base frequency is default represented in the upper left field – the displayed numbers a/b in the fields show the harmonic coordinates; a = number of overtone; b = number of “undertone”). Moving the mouse over a colored field changes its color and creates a sinewave signal according to the displayed frequency ratio, a corresponding envelope shapes the volume. Clicking on a colored field (color changes) makes the sound permanent until clicking again (color changes back) in order to finish the sound. So you can combine all kinds of harmonic chords you like. By typing in the base frequency (default is 220 Hz) in the parameter field “Grundfrequenz in Hz” and by pressing “enter” you can change the tuning of the whole table. “

With the arrival of people and their permanent settlements, the Tuatha Dé Danann continued to muck about in the lives of people, but retreated to the Otherworld, their home world, a world still reachable through places such as fairy forts or fairy burrows. (Interestingly, the “gateways” identified in Celtic stories would not infrequently turn out to be archaeologically significant sites dating to the Neolithic period.)

http://web.cn.edu/kwheeler/lit_terms_N.html#neologism_anchor }Neologism: A made-up word that is not a part of normal, everyday vocabulary. Often Shakespeare invented new words in his place for artistic reasons. For instance, “I hold her as a thing enskied.” The word enskied implies that the girl should be placed in the heavens. Other Shakespearean examples include climature (a mix between climate and temperature) and abyssm (a blend between abyss and chasm), and compounded verbs like outface or un-king. Contrast with kenning. Occasionally, the neologism is so useful it becomes a part of common usage, such as the word new-fangled that Chaucer invented in the 1300s. A neologism may be considered either a rhetorical scheme or a rhetorical trope, depending upon whose scholarly definition the reader trusts. See compounding, infixation, epenthesis, proparalepsis, and prosthesis.
http://www.datehookup.com/singles-content-an-online-guide-to-shakespeare-the-neologist.htm }William Shakespeare is considered by many to be the greatest English playwright to date. While best known for his collections of plays and sonnets, having written 38 plays and over 150 poems, what Shakespeare is less famous for is his contribution of words and phrases to the English language. Over 2,000 English words were first recorded in print by Shakespeare.

http://openliterature.net/2012/04/07/shakespeare-visualised/ }If ‘reading Shakespeare’ is such a personal, human thing, then it may well be fair to say that computers are not very well equipped to do it. That said, some recent, public domain images by Pat Lockley, entitled ‘The Science of Shakespeare’ present an interesting way to rethink the relation between computers and the act of reading Shakespeare. A computer cannot in any way read as a human does, but that does not make its contribution worthless. Instead, it makes a computer’s reading of Shakespeare something complementary, something that might challenge or confirm our own impressions of Shakespeare.

“A sentence is but a cheveril glove to a good wit. How quickly the wrong side may be turned outward” (Twelfth Night 3.1.11-12). Scholars estimate that Shakespeare’s vocabulary was between 25,000 and 29,000–nearly twice the vocabulary of the average college student of today, according to Russ McDonald in The Bedford Companion to Shakespeare (40). The normal working vocabulary of a speaker of English today is around 5,000 words.

http://www.scholarpedia.org/article/Kelvin-Helmholtz_Instability_and_Roll-up }Kelvin-Helmholtz Instability (KHI) (Helmoltz 1868, Kelvin 1871) is a hydrodynamic instability in which immiscible, incompressible, and inviscid fluids are in relative and irrotational motion. In KHI, the velocity and density profiles are uniform in each fluid layer, but they are discontinuous at the (plane) interface between the two fluids. This discontinuity in the (tangential) velocity, i.e., the shear flow, induces vorticity at the interface; as a result, the interface becomes an unstable vortex sheet that rolls up into a spiral.

https://www.thunderbolts.info/wp/2016/03/11/surface-conductive-faults/ }When high voltage electrical circuitry is sufficiently overloaded, or damaged, the current will seek alternative conductive paths to discharge to ground. It causes a dangerous event called an arc flash. Arc flash occurs when the current discharges in an arc through the atmosphere.The result is explosive. Arc heat far exceeds the surface temperature of the Sun, in excess of 35,000 °F (19,400 °C). It’s hot enough to vaporize copper conductors, producing an expanding plasma with supersonic shock-wave pressures over 1000 psi. It releases radiation across the spectrum with such energy, it will vaporize, melt and ablate materials far from the arc itself. No contact is required with an arc burn. Damage occurs from the searing hot blast.

In “Arc Blast – Part One” we looked at how arc blast from current in the atmosphere could produce supersonic shock and wind effects that create a mountain. We examined triangular buttresses on mountainsides that exhibit the characteristic standing wave-form of a reflected shock wave. In particular, we looked at how they are layered perpendicular to the wind direction, and exhibit compression and expansion from superimposed longitudinal and transverse waves that came from a source above. We now examine more, compelling evidence.

After much deliberation, we made the decision to release this full documentary. Year by year the evidence for global electric scarring of Mars continues to grow. Bringing the facts to public attention will be among our highest priorities in coming months. Note: all of the Mars imagery involves actual maps from Google Mars. In Episode 2 Symbols of an Alien Sky: The Lightning Scarred Planet, Mars, David Talbott takes the viewer on an odyssey across the surface of Mars. Exploring feature after feature of the planet, he finds that only electric arcs could produce the observed patterns. The high resolution images reveal massive channels and gouges, great mounds, and crater chains, none finding an explanation in traditional geology but all matching the scars from electric discharge experiments in the laboratory.

The modern awareness that plasma composes most of the universe requires a reevaluation of theories dating from earlier times. Plasma is electrically active and employs forces that can be many times stronger than those of mechanical erosion and tectonics. One possible model envisions the globe enveloped in plasma discharges within the memory of humans. Material from space and from electrical erosion of the surface was suddenly sorted and deposited electrically to a great depth. Dust, sand, gravel, rocks, boulders, coal, and oil accumulated wherever there was dry land. Red-hot dust blown by electrically generated tornado-like winds built up strata in place: “plastered” against obstructions in a manner similar to welded material. Flooding filled the valleys between the mountains with sediments. Where electrical activity was strong enough, the loose material was lithified and even metamorphosed. In this presentation, the Four Corners region in the US is presented as an example.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPcF40vBqzs }Earth geology is primarily a study of incremental processes over eons of time. Volcanoes, earthquakes, weathering and erosion are the forces that geologists theorize as having shaped our planet’s land forms and surfaces. But the Electric Universe is opening new theoretical pathways for understanding our Earth, and all planets and moons. In the Electric Universe theory as proposed by the chief principals of The Thunderbolts Project, in a relatively recent period of chaos in the inner solar system, interplanetary electrical discharges shaped the surfaces of the planets, including the Earth. What evidence do see we of these events on our planet? In this Space News, Thunderblog author and colleague Andrew Hall begins the first of a three-part presentation on revolutionary concepts of Electric Universe geology. 1st of 3.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITtvK1wyptU }In the recent Space News episode, Electric Universe Geology: A New Beginning, Thunderbolts contributor Andy Hall began the laying the foundations for new, revolutionary concepts in Earth geology. Hall introduced his hypothesis based on the principles of plasma physics and electrical engineering for the formation of mountains and other landforms and features.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXvvukD4Kqg }Recent episodes of Space News from the Electric Universe have provided a groundbreaking foundation for a new beginning in Earth geology. Thunderbolts contributor Andrew Hall has introduced his hypothesis for the formation of familiar geological features, not from incremental processes over eons of time, but rather, due to high-energy electrical discharges in Earth’s unique atmosphere. In this episode, Hall concludes this video series with a closer examination of evidence for dramatic, electrical scarring of Earth’s surface. 9:56. 3rd of 3.

See also on YouTube: "Planet of a Thousand Mysteries" and "The Lightning-Scarred Planet Mars."
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyRN3ooCSto }When one gazes at our celestial neighborhood, the planets, moons, comets and asteroids we see defy the speculative history we learned in school. These bodies testify to events not included in any geology textbook. The evidence seem undeniable -- high-energy electromagnetic events have indelibly scarred, and in some cases devastated the rocky bodies in our solar system. Today, this seemingly outrageous theory is being put to the test experimentally. One of the most remarkable of these experimenters is Billy Yelverton, who has successfully replicated countless planetary features through experiments with electrical discharges and electric fields. Today, we provide a brief overview and introduction of Billy’s research. 9:14.
