PLANET-SIZED DIAMOND AROUND PULSAR DISCOVERED is reporting what may be a sensational new discovery, one that surely must have astrophysicists and astronomers scratching their heads and breaking out their equations:

A planet made of diamond (w/ video)

Now permit me to do some absolutely wild speculation here, and return wholesale dividends of speculation for a minimal investment of fact, to paraphrase Mark Twain once again. First it is to be noted that the planet is a solid carbon based object with more mass than Jupiter. That would argue that the planet is a gigantic diamond, a gigantic crystal. Second, it also calls into question certain assumptions in various circles of astronomy that planets beyond a certain mass cannot be solid but only gas giants.

Now, here comes the wild speculation part. For those who don't know the name, Dr. Paul LaViolette, a physicist, wrote a remarkable book called The Talk of the Galaxy, which is a study precisely of pulsars. In that book, LaViolette notes that the distribution of pulsars across the Milky Way when viewed from the Earth as a reference point is non-random. More importantly, LaViolette speculates that pulsars were used by some advanced civilization to build a communications system utilizing phase-conjugate mirrors.

The essence of that complicated sounding device is that it would require a non-linear material, and in this instance, a planet made of diamond would be both non-linear and linear material, and have, as all crystals do, a resonance, and storing up great energy in its crystal lattice. Crystals can be made to be tuned, as anyone familiar with radios knows, to receive radio signals, which pulsars emit.

So let's push LaViolette's hypothesis a bit further. We are dealing with a binary system: (1) pulsar, and (2) crystalline planet. We might, in other words, be looking at some engineering on a planetary and stellar scale... and that should give one pause.

Joseph P. Farrell

Joseph P. Farrell has a doctorate in patristics from the University of Oxford, and pursues research in physics, alternative history and science, and "strange stuff". His book The Giza DeathStar, for which the Giza Community is named, was published in the spring of 2002, and was his first venture into "alternative history and science".

    Several things astounded me in the article: (1) the tremendous speed the pulsar rotates (10,000 rpm) without flying apart, (2) its size, 12.4 miles in diameter and (3) its extreme mass for its size, 1.4 times greater than our sun. I looked up the weight of the sun and found it to weigh 1,989,881,989,610,210+15 zeros kg. The number was too large to put into a kilogram to pound conversion calculator. But someone better than I can divide all those kilograms by 2.20462262 pounds.

    That’s amazing.

    I think it’s in Dr. Farrell’s book, “The Cosmic War” that he talks about pulsars being used as communication bacons and he quotes Dr. LaViolette’s work on pulsars.

    Way to go !
    Right on !

    I have read 3 of his books and on the 4th.
    I read his theory and it sounds, well, sound to me;
    but then I just LOVE wild speculations based on “fact.”

    The book you site I have not read yet and one other;
    but so far Joseph, to me, he is like you.
    Gotta have ’em ALL !

    Thanks Loads,

    I love LaViolette’s work. But this subject always throws me back to the mysterious Urantia Book, with all of the talk about ‘Architectural Spheres’ and the Hierarchy of Beings, that pervade the highly structured Universe. The book is full of provoking and unexplained statements, and apparently was channeled over decades, which is why so many investigators simply ignore it today. But are they throwing the baby out w/ the bathwater? Conjecture abounds.

    • HAL838 on September 4, 2011 at 7:34 am

      Having read 3 and on the 4th book by LaVoilette,
      I have NOT come across ANY “channelling”,
      no mention of “Urantia” (yes, I am aware) or
      “Hierarchy of Beings.”

      If I do, I will recant;
      but the man is a genius scientist, for heaven’s sake,
      not (so far to my knowledge) into rummaging
      through Galactic Garbage Cans ! for “wild speculation” based on
      nothing !

    and im sorry to those i chatted to yesterday that I wasnt able to make it last night. Dinner out called. It was tasty at least! I hope to see you all next time.

    This diamond planet is the Fort Knox for the planet Gorkon. You think its hard to steal gold bullion out of an Army Fort? Try stealing a whole planet ! 😛

    Pause. Pause???

    Dr. Farrell, you touch on this subject in Cosmic War and sprinkle the physics of it all around from Giza Death Star, to Bell, to Unified Field and even Banksters with temples as radio receiving devices.

    So, if this speculation is true: Then we have strong evidence of a Galactic Civilization, Type III that can engineer an exploded star and radio transmitter the size of Jupiter. We have a Super Techno-Galactic Civilization at work in the Milky Way galaxy……Centered RIGHT HERE in this solar system.

      (and I point directly at the Asteroid Belt, that place that used to have a planet there)

    Isn’t there a Johnny Cash line (he may not have scribed it) “Diamonds in the sky”?

    Yep, I aprehend that he was singing ’bout stars, unless that man had a command of hyper…

    The same applies to P. Farnsworth.

    Fascinating article.
    It’s certainly amazing to think that this might be the work of engineering on a planetary and stellar scale. An excellent example of the concept “truth is stranger than fiction”.

    • Jay on September 3, 2011 at 6:40 pm

      “There are more thing Horatio than…”

      Or as a relative of Dormouse (Dormus) Jessup would say: “ayep”.

    • Jay on September 3, 2011 at 6:43 pm

      really shoudn’t post when I’ve bet at it: “There are more thing[s] in heaven, Horatio, than…

  9. Jon Norris on September 3, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    And Larry Niven already built the setting for it……

    It certainly would be incredibly remarkable, to the point of magical, if it were natural. I doubt that.

    La Viollette could be right, although there is nothing that would force pulsars to be distributed in a random fashion if natural. After all, even stars and galaxies themselves are not randomly distributed, although I haven’t read the details of what he means by that (yet another book I need to read now).

    It would be more persuasive if there were some sort of discernible pattern in their placement. Of course, if they are there for someone’s use, they might not be concerned with how we might view and interpret their placement… isn’t all about us, after all (contrary to the view of some).

    • Jay on September 3, 2011 at 6:45 pm

      Think lighhouses, or navigation buoys and much–much–more. Perhaps anchors for the fabric of your reality, not mine.

    I saw this article too but I just sort of scanned over it.

    The interpretation you give it is most logical and exciting .

  11. Hermes on September 3, 2011 at 8:12 am

    I came across this earlier in the week and was thinking perhaps this is part of disclosure so that when everyone else finds this all to be true they can say they gave us the information. I’m curious of your thoughts on the WL release of that massive file of unredacted info…
