”If a special geometry has to be invented in order to account for a falling apple, even Newton might be appalled at the complications which would ensue when really difficult problems are tackled.”
Electricity in the Universe has been identified from beneath our feet, in animals and plants, our biosphere, and out to the furthest reaches of the Universe. In general, electricity is present wherever we find plasma, and since 99.999% of the visible universe is in the plasma state, magnetic field and electric currents are nearly everywhere.
They call themselves The Thunderbolts Project.
They subscribe to an idea called “electric universe,” and sometimes describe themselves as “getting EU eyes.” Like slipping on rose-colored glasses, the conversion changes their perception of the entire universe. The objects and events remain the same. But they’re tinged with truth. And in EU theory, the truth is that electricity rules.
Electric currents that flow along plasma filaments shape and power galaxies. The currents stream into stars, powering them like fluorescent bulbs. They induce the births of planets. Craters on those planets come from electrical arcs, like lightning bolts, that sear the surfaces.
Also, black holes don’t exist, and neither does dark matter. Nor dark energy.
The Big Bang? Never happened.
Einstein’s two relativities are laughable fiction.
Electricity can explain away all that stuff.
The electric universe concept does not meet the “theory,” which is “a comprehensive explanation of some aspect of nature that is supported by a vast body of evidence” and “can be used to make predictions about natural events or phenomena that have not yet been observed.”
In physics, theories need math. That’s how you predict, gather evidence, verify, disprove, and support. But EU theory isn’t big in math. In fact, “Mathematics is not physics,” While that equation aversion makes the theory pretty much a non-starter for “mainstream” astronomers, it is the exact thing that appeals to many adherents.
“What doesn’t seem to vary is the dissident psychology behind the involvement.”
The Electric Universe theory is interdisciplinary, integrating and supporting subject as diverse as the science (astronomy, geology, physics), with the soft sciences such as ancient history and comparative mythology.
“People say to me that it has changed their lives because it makes sense for them,” “And because it is a real cosmology, there is something for everyone, be they scholar, artist, engineer, or the ‘man on the street.'”
“At best, the ‘electric universe’ is a solution in search of a problem; it seeks to explain things we already understand very well through gravity, plasma, and nuclear physics, “At worst it’s sheer crackpottery like homeopathy and astrology, making claims clearly contradicted by the evidence.”
Yet something about it sparks fervor in the hearts of people-on-the-street, more fervor than casual believers in the Big Bang has. Despite the gaps, logical fallacies, and evidence to its contrary, EU appeals deeply to adherents, lighting a fire, not unlike a tent revival does.
