This story was the second major contender this week, as many people sent this story to me, among them C.V., H.A.H., and E.G. and many others. And needless to say, my high octane speculation antennae are pulsing with suspicion on this one, so much so that I'm going to leap off the end of the high octane speculation twig once again.
The story is that there was a very sudden spike in the electrical currents in the ground near a measuring station in Lofoten, Norway, accompanied by a massive auroral borealis display:
Not to fear, the explanation is that this is all entirely natural and it's happened before:
About 15 minutes before the disturbance in Norway, the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) near Earth abruptly swung around 180 degrees, and the solar wind density jumped more than 5-fold.
Earth may have crossed through a fold in the heliospheric current sheet - a giant, wavy membrane of electrical current rippling through the solar system.
Such crossings can cause these kind of effects.
While currents flowed through the ground, auroras filled the sky.
The auroras and ground currents were caused by the same thing: Rapidly changing magnetic fields. High above Earth's surface, magnetic vibrations shook loose energetic particles, which rained down on the upper atmosphere, creating auroras where they struck. Just below Earth's surface, magnetic vibrations caused currents to flow, triggering Rob Stammes' ground sensors.
Now, I'm about 99.02 per cent certain that this is all there is to the story. Of course, that leaves .98% that there's something else possibly going on, and we'll get back to that in a moment, because it's today's high octane speculation. (And trust me, when you hear it, you'll think I've completely lost it, and that I'm now just a few flies short of a Happy Meal.) Let's begin by noting something implied by the article: this planet, and the Sun, are open systems, and they are part of a gigantic electric circuit. The Earth's and the Sun's magneto-spheres touch, and can influence each other. Let's note something else: both are non-linear materials: the Earth is largely a rock, and the Sun a plasma. Thus, under certain conditions, they might function as, or induce, phase conjugate effects (as I said, I'm speculating wildly). These types of considerations have led me in the past to speculate that one might be able, through that magnetic coupling of the Earth and the Sun and the big electrical circuit between the two, to "tickle" the Sun through manipulation of resonance effects. I've proposed such ideas, for example, in connection with CERN's hadron collider and its magnetic fields.
Similarly, one might be able to manipulate effects in the Earth itself, and this in turn might result in sudden releases of energy, earthquakes for example, or sudden releases of heat (fires), perhaps even of collimated energy, at various spots on the Earth's surface, perhaps even as a kind of collimated peizo-electric effect, all that would be needed to do the later would be to find a way to use the non-linear lattice of rock to produce a cohered beam of energy when the rock is stressed(Easier said, than done). Perhaps, perhaps, maybe, might, under certain conditions... you get the idea, I hope, of how truly "out there" this speculation is. And yes, for those connecting dots, I'm also very tentatively suggesting that the columns of light or fire one sees in the pictures of recent fires might be the exact reverse of what people are thinking; rather than energy being beamed from the sky or space to the Earth, it might be the other way around: sudden bursts of energy, both cohered and in the form of massive heat and fire, bursts of energy coming from within the planet itself, to the sky or space, completing another electrical circuit. What we're talking about is planetary-sized, perhaps even stellar-sized, engineering. This idea follows my idea that if one were confronted with a type I or II civilization on the Kardashev scale of civilizations so advanced they require the energy output of entire planets (class I) or entire stars (class II), one way to issue a warning to such civilizations would be to demonstrate an engineering ability to engineer systems of weaponized planetary or stellar scales in what I've called the "Farrell Corollaries" to Kardashev's scale.
Does this idea have any traction? Again, perhaps. If so, how would one spot it? One way, I suspect, would be to look at the antipodes where certain phenomena occur. While I was unable to find the antipode for Lofoten, Norway(I didn't have time), it is bound to be in the same region as Oslo, which is far to the south of Lofoten. Interestingly enough, the antipode for Oslo is southeast of New Zealand, in the southern Pacific Ocean, where (again, interestingly enough) there has been a recent earthquake swarm.
And yes, all of this very wild high octane speculation is meant to be viewed in the context of what I wrote in yesterday's blog about the anomalies some are finding in the Australian fires, that we might be looking at some kind of war taking place right in front of our eyes.
See you on the flip side...
