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:

Electricity Mysteriously Surged Through Norway's Soil On Monday?!

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...

    Dr. Farrell,
    Dr. Pierre Marie Robitalle says that the sun is not a plasma ball but liquid hydrogen.
    I just had an M.R.I. a couple of weeks ago and since Dr Robitalle was very much the guy that made that process happen , I do give what he says a lot of weight.
    All the things you state about the natural possible reasons and magnetic field shifts are in line with what he says except his non mainstream pov on the sun not being a plasma ball.
    I read his Sky Scholar an he has helped me understand Kirchoffs Law much better than before.
    I have great respect for both of you and love when you go out on that twig!

      is this helpful?

      Are you saying that the sun is not electric by stating it’s not a plasma ball? All I got from Doc R is the mechanism by which the sun is electric. That it is not gaseous but is instead liquid metallic hydrogen. Very electrically active hydrogen.

      • Ray Story on January 17, 2020 at 4:23 pm

        Not at all, I am not stating one way or the other about the suns electric properties, my point being that liquid metallic hydrogen is a different state of matter and liquid being non-compressing changes much of what I was taught.
        I merely trying to get Dr Farrell’s input on Dr. Robitalle’s saying the sun is not a plasma ball at its core as is commonly still taught.
        My only links are to his Sky Scholar series on Youtube and there are too many to list here.
        If MRI’s were not so expensive I doubt if I would ever want to get another X-Ray study , however after studying the MRI pics of my own spine I am in awe of the level of detail that MRI’s show vs “cancer-rays”.

          Interesting. I was taught nada about plasma. Only gases compressed so much by gravity to cause nuclear fusion. To most of what I hear from highschoolers and their teachers, plasma is a new, not widely accepted paradigm. Perhaps college level is different.

          Thunderbolts.info has more than a few excellent theories with longer legs than the standard theory. I want to say Robitaille’s theories strongly back most electric universe theories. Have you looked at SAFIRE project yet?

          BTW, you might want to reconsider that love of MRI. It has its uses but be sure, it has its risks.
          How often does one get to drop Chuck Norris’ name on this blog?

          • Ray Story on January 18, 2020 at 5:07 pm

            Thank you for that link.
            I still don’t feel the M.R.I. per se is a danger .
            I had no such injection.
            That is why I consider it safer than an X-ray.
            I don’t trust the chemicals , only the physics.
            I was not aware that some M.R.I. procedures use these kind of injections.
            Leave it to the money makers to mess up a good thing by “improving ” it.

    one can have fun at antipodes.com.
    the antipode for Perth is dead on Bermuda.
    maybe why the Perth disctrict has is a pyramid out the front.

  3. Curt Ensign on January 15, 2020 at 4:19 pm

    The nuclear fusion reaction of the sun creates an electric solar system. Electrical connections between the sun and Earth are commonplace. What do you think the energy source is for hurricanes? Warm water??? LOL.

  4. Barbara on January 15, 2020 at 3:53 pm

    How about these Puerto Rico earthquakes. Even ASS Press is reporting that they are very unusual.
    By the way antipode for PR is Western Australia.

    Reminds one of the Navy’s “Project Sanguine” back in the late 60’s up at Clam Lake, Wisconsin. It would seem that Extremely Low Frequencies (ELF) Communications experimentation are making news again or another example of submarine talk having a geomagnetic effect that wasn’t planned. Throw in some long-awaited Solar activity at minimum getting ready to move into Solar cycle 25 and wait for the effects to tally the data with new experimental toys.

    Makes one wonder about deep cavern talk. After all, there are a lot of deep chambers being dug, probably with Tesla’s boring machines. In any case, old stuff with a new twist or unintended show-n-tell. ‘Suppose it could be Sanguine’s lesser shadow, Project ELF, up in the same region with its 28 mile “X” shaped arrangement instead of the once proposed 6,000 miles of buried cable of Sanguine. Rumor has it that there’s still quite a few secrets being kept by the Navy. Yawn. So far that’s Norway, Wisconsin which leaves the Alaskan / Siberian region that would be nearly equidistant from the moving geomagnetic North pole. One is pretty sure that Moscow has no comment on its activities regarding geomagnetic field tests and talking to its submarines, especially, the one that was lost and found deep down not to far from Norwegian skies and seas.

    What other areas are measured and monitored for such surges? Were other sirges noted? Relationship to volcanoe surge lately?

  7. Pierre on January 14, 2020 at 9:31 pm

    For Lofoten I get approx 67N, 13
    antipode is -67, 180-13=-167
    that gets me google earth that comes up with the label
    Umitaka bank… near the Ballany islands
    follow the money?
    handy tool here to show the antipode side by side with any location.
    I was out a little. (lofoten is though a region)
    68° 19′ 59″ S, 165° 20′ 1″

    But we have a ruling class of vicious children who are capable of any nasty act. And we have seen what horrors they have committed with the technologies we know they have. What about the technologies that we do not know of but those of us might suspect these monsters may be using for kicks and profit in their twisted dreams.

  9. Hyperborean1 on January 14, 2020 at 7:29 pm

    If my calculations are correct, the antipodal point of the place of recorded observation, (Polar Light Center 68.391100 N, 14.466176 E), is
    -68.3991100 S, -165.533824 W. This position is approximately 844 miles NE of the McMurdo Station.

    Immediately, I suspected CERN doing another of its Live-In-Action Experiment$.
    Heliospheric Current Sheet. [cool]!

    Ah! Tesla’s Tunguska experiment refined; and gone live?

    Not only fires, earthquakes & volcanoes; but, polar shifts?

    And Earthling$ all get to be part of it, including crispy critters down-under. Yes, it’s that heartless.


    What are they?

    War certainly sounds dramatic but if it was one we’d all be toast in short order and not having this discussion.

    All this reminds me of what happened once the first world’s generals got a hold of nukes at the close of WW II. Like toddlers with a hammer, first they bombed the desert, then they bombed captured enemy fleets and obsolete ships, then Pacific atolls, then when they got rockets they put them on them and bombed the Van Allen belts and drooled over nuking the moon. Eventually they calmed down once they’d bombed everything they could think of and the novelty had worn off.

    What we’re seeing today sure looks to me like a new generation of MIC toddlers with a new set of hammers, whacking everything they can think of.
    We can push around the Jet Stream? Great! Let’s do it!
    We can block weather fronts and manipulate droughts and floods? Awesome, me first!
    We can set a continent on fire? Cool, go for it!
    We can zap Norway and make the sky literally glow? Jeez, I want to see that!

    This is just Dr. Strangeloves being Sr. Strangeloves. Eventually it will calm down once they grow bored and once the shine has worn off their latest toys. Hopefully we and the planet will survive it.

    • Robert Barricklow on January 14, 2020 at 4:04 pm

      Dr. Strangelove certainly captures their true character

    Galactic upgrade of civilization occurred, by mushroom brains with buttons, in a hot wired toaster, plugged into the Tesla grid.

    They were trying to roast a slice of bread, on LSD, when the saucers came flying.

    The aurora came all the way down to South Texas once somewhere in the mid nineties. In 98 we had a huge one hundred and fifty year flood that water locked everyone in. We never got a single drop of rain, it all came from upstream, two or three hundred miles away. It was a quite a disaster.

  16. WalkingDead on January 14, 2020 at 8:29 am

    Information on Solar and Galactic current sheets and their effects can be found at: https://suspicious0bservers.org/ as well as his Youtube channel. He has three informative videos concerning Plasma Cosmology, climate forcing, and cosmic disasters. There are also playlists of shorter videos on several topics concerning Solar forcing. Quakewatch.net is another site with information on the electromagnetic effects prior to earthquakes.
    I’m not saying these are always completely natural, just that they have natural triggers which possibly can be manipulated using advanced technology.
    With the weakening of Earth’s magnetic shield, it takes less energy from the Sun or “other” points of origin to trigger these effects.
    Any class 1 or 2 civilization which may exist would tend to view Earth as an ant hill. While I don’t go around kicking or stepping in them, I do “remove” them from my yard when necessary. Something to contemplate on a Galactic scale.

      A little off-topic (maybe not) if you’re hip to suspicousObservers then you’re probably also aware of Dutchsinse who blogs along similar lines. As noted on Yves’ nakedcapitalism site, Dutschsinse seems to be long gone. All the videos on his youtube channel are missing; 358,000 subscribers left hanging; such a mystery!

    It would be interesting to know how a Kardashev Class II civilization – “so advanced they require the energy output of entire planets (class I) or entire stars (class II)” – would view our Sun. They would probably have engineering knowledge of how to seriously ‘tinker’ with a star (star-iforming?). As such, any attempt of a sub-Class I civilization to ‘wow’ them with parlor trickery would be laughed out of the room (on the gigantic starship)…

    The last blog contained a possibility of a ‘war’ from space connected to the Australian fires. Well, if you really wanted to play War as a Kardashev Class II civilization (upon a sub-Class I civilization), you might know how to ‘tickle’ the Sun in all sorts of creative ways. What if the “Electricity mysteriously surging through Norway’s Soil” was only a ranging shot ?
