This one is a topic I commented recently on aByte Show interview, and that is the US military's new "plasma cannon," and I thought it would be worth a more detailed look here. Here is Russian TV that brings you this bit of news:

US Army to smite enemies with Tesla-like lightning bolts?

The basic idea here is very simple. The laser acts as a conductive channel for a plasma, or, an electrically charged gas, toward its target.  The laser heats a gas, ionizing the air through which it passes, and thus creates a column or channel taht is not electrically neutral. In other words, the column becomes a kind of "wire of air" through which a short, sharp, electrical pulse is shot: essentially,  a lightning bolt.

Now, there are two paragraphs here that I hope you noticed:

"Theoretically, it can be used to take out a specific object in its entirety – an enemy SUV or a plane – without having to destroy everything around it."

And this:

"Engineers are now working on turning the prototype into a mobile cannon that can be mounted on aircraft and trucks, but the US Army has not yet ordered any devices."

Now all this provokes in my mind the "scaled up version" of this whole concept that we saw in Independence Day, which epitomized the basic concept behind a laser-induced plasma channel weapon for millions of movie-goers to see, that is, in one sense, that there is no real limit to the size of "plasma cannon" that might be constructed.

So that leads me to my next question: isn't building a laser-induced plasma cannon merely to take out an airplane, or a tank, or a squad of soldiers, a bit cost-ineffective? After all, won't a standard shell from a cannon, or missile, work just as effectively, with much less cost, and nearly the same accuracy?

Of course it would, and to answer that is to suggest that another agenda entirely is being sought here, precisely the agenda that I implied by the reference to the laser-induced-plasma cannon as depicted in Independence Day: I suspect what "they" are after is a strategic capability of such a weapon, based in space, and able to rain down accurate "lightning bolts" on the surface of the earth using such electrically conductive channels from the upper to the lower atmosphere, and the extraordinary amount of electrical energy in the atmosphere itself.

A few years ago, Dr. Carol Rosin informed the world of Dr. Wehrner von Braun's alleged statements to her, that first Communism was the enemy, then terrorists, then "nations of concern"(which which we appear to be dealing now), then it would be asteroids, and then, finally, extra-terrestrials, all trotted forth as the "most favored enemy" status for the goal of weaponizing space.

So where is the inspiration for these ideas coming from? In the "electric universe" model being promoted in some alternative circles - and rest assured, I have some problems with that model, not the least of which is its inherent catastrophism - there are signs within our own solar system of massive electrical discharges: the Higenus Rille on the Moon, the Vallee Marineris on Mars... all this, so the electric universe theory maintains were the results of natural discharges between the then-electrically polarized planets, which discharges were memorialized in our human myths as the thunderbolts of the Gods, be the Marduk, Zeus, or Thor. But those myths are clear, these were wars, not "discharges", and in Marduk's case, stars themselves were turned into the sources of the plasmas for the electrical current. So once again, it would appear that modern weapons, by way of modern science and technology, are making possible the technologies of the gods, for from Marduk to Independence Day to this very real modern weapons technology, the fundamental principle remains the same, all that is really different is the scale at which is is executed, and as I have suggested above, creating a weapon like this for the purposes of taking out tanks or airplanes, when far cheaper technologies already exist, strongly suggests that the real goal is something much larger, and much more sinister...

...and that means that some mad scientist, in some laboratory somewhere, working for DIARPA (Dreadfully Insane Advanced Research Projects Agency), has already understood that weaponizing an entire star is theoretically possible, simply by creating the proper resonance effects and electrical channels... one could, so to speak, order M class solar flares for delivery on such and such a day, at such and such a time, like ordering a pizza...

See you on the flip side...

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".

    Dr. Farrell! Think small too. The right laser and battery and you have a hand held “Taser” like weapon. Much like the “Phaser” in Star Trek. Take a look at the “Yellow Jacket” basically a Taser attached to an iPhone. But I agree bigger is a planet buster.

      I like the one that appeared in an April 1997
      issue of “US News And World Report”
      as it is painless [which is why THEY don’t like it]
      and can be hand held.

      Same principle actually,
      or not…………………….
      ………… didn’t work……………
      but not because it didn’t work,
      it actually did work for a few minutes anyway,
      which was not, after all THEIR fault !

    I agree with you totally, Dr. Farrell-

    “the real goal is something much larger, and much more sinister…”- and this concept scares the livin’ Bejeezus out of me-

    But now going from a Lionel-sized train to the HO gauge: Dr. Judy Wood’s research is compelling evidence that this kind of technology not only already exists but is being deployed-

    which brings me to the Colorado fires: I think we’ll all agree that forest fires tend to destroy trees- so how could stone fireplaces/chimneys in conflagrated houses be turned to ash when trees directly next to the burned/ashed homes remain unscathed?- there’s another force at work here-

    I don’t know if the reports about Queen Lizzy buying property in Colorado under an anonymous name are true, but we’ve been told ca. 20.000 people have been evacuated due to these fires and if one’s home has been turned to ash I hardly think one will be going back home very soon- it is as if this area is being sanitized-

    and one must not forget that CO was very important to Nikola Tesla-

    many regards to all-

      addendum: if one has the time and interest do check out Kerry Cassidy’s recent interview with John Lear (and let’s not start a mega-forum about Cassidy’s credentials/validity, OK?- this website has better things to do): he wholly endorses Dr. Wood’s research and confirms that particle-beam technology (for lack of a better term at the moment) is anything but science fiction

    I just happened to come across this very apt paragraph:
    From the moment the Soviets launched Sputnik I into orbit around the Earth in 1957, everybody from Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy and Johnson on down looked upon the so-called space race as just one thing: a military contest. At first there was alarm over the Soviets’ seizure of the “strategic high ground” of space. They were already up there — right above us! They could now hurl thunderbolts down whenever and wherever they wanted. And what could we do about it? Nothing. Ka-boom! There goes Bangor … Ka-boom! There goes Boston … Ka-boom! There goes New York … Baltimore … Washington … St. Louis … Denver … San Jose — blown away! — just like that.

      Yep interesting indeed, Willem, and thanks for the post!

      I don’t know if it’s genuine and I don’t know anyone that has the resources to find out definitively unfortunately.

      They do have a Facebook presence also and it is not just there for silent show purposes..I have just had a look at it and they are quite active on the page from a posting perspective, so who knows..I guess we’ll just have to wait and see –

            There is a gang here in CT by that name.
            In Spanish it had to be “the 2 suns,” but it was a play
            on both spellings.

    Some suspect the world trade centers were taken out by a satelite useing similar technolgy but sending pulsed microwaves rather than electricity. If they are announcing the potential publically than most likely it already exists and has been used. Now that our enemies have figured out how we did it they pretend we are working on it but are not quite there yet to keep plausible deniability.
