Every now and then the people who regularly submit articles to this website for consideration submit things that dovetail with each other so neatly that it's spooky, and that's certainly the case with these two submissions by P.S.J. and K.M. Indeed, according to the following article that P.S.J. spotted and shared, someone "out there" is apparently writing papers on how to cut stars in half, presumably with all the resulting stellar-sized chaos that such an act would entail:

Ultra-powerful plasma 'blades' could slice entire stars in half, new paper suggests

And here's the gist (with its accompanying picture, and caption just for good measue):

Illustration of an outburst on an ultramagnetic neutron star, also called a magnetar.

Ultracompact objects with strong magnetic fields are known as magnetars. New research suggests they could be sliced in half by ultrapowerful plasma blades, and that this could be the source of some of the brightest explosions in the universe. (Image credit: NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center)

Stars could be sliced in half by "relativistic blades," or ultra-powerful outflows of plasma shaped by extremely strong magnetic fields, a wild new study suggests. And these star-splitting blades could explain some of the brightest explosions in the universe.

The study authors, based at the Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics at New York University, outlined their results in a paper published in September to the preprint database arXiv. The study has not yet been peer-reviewed.

Now, as usual, there's an explanation for why such a paper was even being proferred: scientists are trying to explain the mechanism behind gamma ray bursts, and they come up with this:

But the authors of the new study realized that the magnetar's magnetic fields can also beam intense bursts of radiation along the magnetar's equator. Shaped by the extreme centrifugal forces of the rotating star, these beams of radiation form a blade that moves outward through the star at nearly the speed of light, carrying more energy than a supernova explosion.

This "relativistic blade" can perfectly bisect the star, slicing it in half on its way out, the study authors found.

The blade then travels for a distance well over several times the radius of the original star before it finally loses steam, potentially explaining some longer-lasting GRBs.

The star's fate is sealed. During the blade's travel, it picks up more and more material that eventually joins the blade in its outward journey. The blade also causes instabilities within the star itself that lead, eventually, to its demise.

Voila!  Just get enough of that plasma rotating at the equator of a star and it can act as a blade slicing the star in two, and ka-boom.... you get a RRRrrrrreeeeeaaaalllllyyyy big explosion.

Regular readers of my books and of this website will recall my  "Farrell Corollaries" to the Kardashev Scale of Civilization Types. Kardashev was the Russian astrophysicist who proposed a scheme of classification of potential extra-terrestrial civilization types based on the amount of energy those civilizations required to sustain them. A Class I civilization type required the energy of an entire planet; a Class II that of an entire star, and a Class III the mind-boggling energy of an entire galaxy.  On this scheme, our human civilization is not yet even a class I civilization.   This is where my "Farrell Corollaries" come in: suppose, for a hypothetical scenario, humanity suspects it might be in contact with or dealing with a civilization of a class I or II type.  How would it convince such civilizations to leave us well-enough alone? One way would be to demonstrate a capability of engineering systems of planetary or stellar scalesSuch an ability implies, in turn, the ability to weaponize systems of those scales, to manipulate them for that purpose.  This is a different thing than requiring the energy of Kardashev's original scheme, for it implies an ability to leverage systems of those scales.

From that perspective, what this paper suggests is that it is less an explanation of a phenomenon, and more of  a "how to do it" manual: "here's the general concept, now you engineers go out there and figure out a way to make it happen."

Uh huh... much easier said than done. We'd still need gobs of energy, gobs of relativistic particles in plasma states, and ways to get all of that to some star, and the only one close to hand and conveniently in our own neighborhood is our very own Sun, and just between you and me, I think that slicing it in half would be a Very Bad Idea.

But in addition to being a Very Bad Idea, I thought, we can all breathe a sigh of relief because we're nowhere close to even being able to think of any practical sort of engineering of that principle resembling that Very Bad Idea...

... and then I opened my email box, and found the following paper that was spotted and sent along by K.M.:

Investigating a reported method of producing Magneto-Toro Electrical Radiation identified by Alexander Shishkin et. al.

Well, I am not even going to bother rehearsing what was going through my mind when I read that one... Ball lightning...?!?  You don't say! "Toroidal moments!?! Gravimagnetic  rotors in local zones?!?!?!

I'd better just stop there, and let you read it for yourself and draw your own conclusions.

That's all, have a nice day...

...See you on the flip side...

    It never ceases to amaze me how little of our current cosmology is rooted in factual science.
    You know, the stuff that was based on an experiment and from which a theory followed hot on it heels.
    Nowadays we have theory after theory all backed up by super clever mathematicians thrice proving we are not really here at all and the answer to everything is always 42.
    The current understanding of astrophysics is laughable.
    There may be electricity out there in the stars but it doesn’t do anything.

    I reckon Samuel Clemens said it best “I never let my schooling interfere with my education”
    These days, sorry to say, “retards and fools are in charge everywhere”.
    No less so in amongst the sciences where the religious zealot has safe tenure in academia.

    1. Dragons are cruel and speculative, and the brain a testament to their existence. Normally, a man’s awareness can’t communicate with his internal organs, and when such occurs, it happens in dreamlike imagery, which is why the brain is perceived, as a dragon.

    2. When Siegfried, by magic mushrooms, slays the dragon, he takes a bath in dragon blood, to become invincible, and then he understands the language of birds. This is alchemy, which is speaking the unspoken language of profound insights.

    3. It means, that Siegfried bypasses his own brain, to defeat the brain, which results in awareness outside the body, and language has no words for that, except “Buddha field”, which is followed by “Buddha laughter”, when seeing the cosmic comedy of it all.

    4. Man’s awareness is literally being held, in a flesh prison, and the jailers are the organs, and this state of being is called incarnation, which is awareness clothed in flesh. To the awareness, the corporeal form is literally a grave.

    5. Siegfried’s invincibility is becoming emotionally unattached, by becoming the dragon, bathing in its blood, which produces a kill switch on empathy, which in return produces a natural-born killer, and the British word for that is Pendragon.

    6. The language of birds is basically the dream state, which is normally a nightly solution of imagery, that, when dreamt awake, produces poetry and science fiction. A professional shape-shifter takes whatever form, whenever, which is cosmic theatre.

    7. The profound insight, that the dragon guards, is the knowledge, that everything is on fire, and that some burn fast, and others are slow burn. This knowledge is key, to manipulating the collective soul, which is the shaman’s power.

    8. The sun is also a great dragon, reflecting the cosmic brain, which is the cosmology, that C. S. Lewis meditates upon, in his Narnia novels, about the seven celestial spheres. Slaying dragons is a hobby, for those, who pull best of blades, from seed stones.

    Druidry stands, as truth before the world.

      BTW, when Moses said: “put a snake on a stick” (Numbers 21:8), then the message was, that, to fight reptiles in wilderness, one must become a reptile. That is, to fight fire, with fire.

      When, after a civil war, the lion of Juda was abandoned, by the ten northern tribes, then the lion was replaced, by Moses’ reptile/dragon, that later became the Scythian symbol.

      When Scythian Odin came to Scandinavia, then the dragon became the Viking symbol, and, as Danes took Christianity, both the lion and dragon, were carved on the Jelling runestone.

      Dragon, instead of lion, was used by the Norse settlers in Iceland, which explains Odin, as Abram’s Scythian lineage, rotating the sun wheel, which makes Iceland the real “Israel”, be legacy.

      The Assyrian loyalists, who replaced the deported proto-Scythians, and became Roman puppet rulers in Judea, have secretly taken over all royalty in Europe, and are today being exposed.

      Those, wailing at the wall, are fraudsters, engaging in identity theft. Two can’t share same identity. One will have to go. The sun shall be cut into pieces.

    Problem is plasmas don’t always operate as if their a dumb-ass on/off switch.
    In fact, some even think some plasmas maybe intelligent.
    There’s a history of the above when it comes to man trying to engineer fusion.
    So, this blade idea may have a conceptual possibility; but in practice?
    Plasmas may not be as easy to assimilate as the…
    Borg. ? !

      When using awareness, as a directed energy weapon, by means of psilocybin, while taking a deep dive into fire, it is my experience, that plasmas show talkative intelligence.

      It is my deduction, that awareness is communicating, with its own reptilian brain, and that survival instincts of individual organs, that make up the body, are triggered.

      It means, that plasma is a window, whereby awareness can communicate with its own carnal vehicle, which supports the old idea, that planetary spheres are represented in physical organs.

      That is why, at the 7th trigger point, awareness can travel any path, in every direction, simultaneously.


      Elijah sought heavenly king,
      in halls of star singing,
      and with amaze
      in a race,
      he kept fireballs running.

    Think Star Wars Deathstar on steroids you don’t blow up the planet you blow up the star taking out the whole solar system.

    “But in addition to being a Very Bad Idea, I thought, we can all breathe a sigh of relief because we’re nowhere close to even being able to think of any practical sort of engineering of that principle resembling that Very Bad Idea…”

    Joseph, not to be a doomer, but the mad scientists now have access to gadgets like ChatGPT, no?

    Directed energy, that produces vortexes in atmosphere, would certainly be able, to cause likewise effect in the solar sphere.

    A single frequency wouldn’t do it, whereas several frequencies combined, could start a spin, like a Mandelbrot derivative.

    Such spin effects would be seen, as exotic radiation, and a magnetic monopol would be a fitting term, for such a spin.

    Knifing the sun, with a magnetic monopol, would be like slicing butter.


    As I broke the sun,
    it shattered every,
    and I had dragons on the run,
    both here and there.
