ARE WE IN A MAGNETIC TUNNEL?
This story was spotted and shared by V.T. and L.G.L.R., and like many such stories, there was something in it that caught my eye, and that I imagine will catch yours as well. According to some recent astronomical discoveries, the solar system may be inside a magnetic tunnel:
Before we get to today's high octane speculation, we need to refer to the following statements in the article:
Imagine looking up in the sky and in all directions there are radio waves that look like a magnetic tunnel-like structure surrounding our solar system. A scientist out of the University of Toronto is suggesting that this is exactly what is happening.
Dr. Jennifer West, an expert in magnetism in galaxies and the interstellar medium, believes that she and her team are potentially the first astronomers to see a connection between the North Polar Spur and the Fan Region, two points in the sky previously believed to have no relationship.
The magnetic structures are believed to be 350 light years away from us and 1000 light years long.
“Magnetic fields don’t exist in isolation. They all must connect to each other. So a next step is to better understand how this local magnetic field connects both to the larger-scale Galactic magnetic field, and also to the smaller scale magnetic fields of our Sun and Earth.” (Boldface emphasis added)
Today's daily dose of high octane speculation concerns those boldfaced portions of the above quotation. First, however, we need to point something out, something that may in the long run prove to be significant. Back in 2007 when I wrote The Cosmic War: Interplanetary Warfare, Modern Physics, and Ancient Texts I spent some time going over the "plasma cosmology" of Swedish physicist Hannes Alfven, and American physicists Anthony Peratt and Eric Lehrner. The idea that the universe is a vast electro-dynamic system, with filaments of electrified plasma connecting planets, stars, and even whole galaxies to each other is nothing new; it's been around for decades. It's as if one were to say that the solar system, the Milky Way galaxy, and even the local galactic cluster, are all one gigantic electrical circuit.
And this brings us to why the plasma cosmology has been so problematic to many physicists, for Einstein's relativistic theories essentially stated that the velocity of light is a maximum speed limit, so to speak, for all frames of reference or systems. Or to put the same point somewhat differently, the maximum speed of information transfer is the velocity of light. And now we're talking about magnetic structures "1000 light years long", a statement that implies that the information of these magnetic structures is transferring faster than that. Think, for example, of a lightning strike. Nano-second before lightning arcs from one point in a dipole to the other, little tendrils snake out, seeking to "close the circuit", and when they find its, lightning arcs from one pole to another. So are we dealing with a diploe phenomenon here? If so, how does the circuit close over a distance of 1000 light years? If not, is there another mechanism - perhaps the presence of a "hyper-spatial" factor which enables the circuit to close because, in essence, the points of the circuit, hyper-spatially, are not all that distant? Such speculations remind me of Gabriel Kron's dictum that there is no electrical circuit that is not a hyper-dimensional machine. But we're talking about magnetism here. Is there a similar feature to it we're unaware of?
Dr. West's final statement in the article, which is the last quotation cited above, seems to suggest as much, since for her the issue seems to be the inter-connectivity of magnetic fields: the Earth's magnetic field is connected to the Sun's, and both in turn are connected to the galaxy's, and so on. Could that interconnectivity be creating those hyper-dimensional effects? Or to put it differently and as she seems to suggest, are hyper-dimensional magnetic effects an emergent property of magnetic networks? Time and further investigation will tell, of course.
But in the meantime, and for those really paying attention, you might be thinking of the Kardashev scale and the "Farrell corollaries". Kardashev was the Russian astrophysicist who developed a classification system for potential extra-terrestrial civilizations. A class one civilization required the energy consumption of an entire planet to sustain itself. A class two civilization that of an entire star, and a class three society that of an entire galaxy. My own "corollaries" were developed in part in response to the a similar question: if one were confronted with the presence of a class one or two civilization, how might one respond in such a way as to forestall any potential intervention in human affairs by such a civilization? By demonstrating the ability to manipulate physical systems of planetary and/or stellar scales, and I've also speculated that one way to do so would be to manipulate systems on those scales through magnetic means. I've stopped short of galactic scale manipulation, but now Dr. West's work clearly implies it just as it implies the open-systems nature of that magnetic interconnectivity.
If it is possible to engineer systems of planetary and stellar scale by dint of that magnetic interconnectivity, then is it possible to engineer systems of galactic scale by means of the same? If one "tickles" a planetary magnetic field, will the ripple effects be magnified at greater scales, or dissipated?
Again, we don't know, unless, of course, secret work has already been done in that connection. If so, so far, they're not telling.
See you on the flip side...
