"From the smallest particle to the largest galactic formation, a web of electrical circuitry connects and unifies all of nature, organizing galaxies, energizing stars, giving birth to planets and, on our own world, controlling weather and animating biological organisms. There are no isolated islands in an electric universe."

"Today, nothing is more important to the future and credibility of science than liberation from the gravity-driven universe of prior theory. A mistaken supposition has not only prevented intelligent and sincere investigators from seeing what would otherwise be obvious, it has bred indifference to possibilities that could have inspired the sciences for decades."

David Talbott and Wallace Thornhill - Thunderbolts of the Gods

The Electric Universe
"If I have had an underlying purpose in my life it has been to watch for intellectual explorers who have been marginalised by their peers. They are often those who have the audacity to use their imagination, uncommon-sense and courage to challenge the paradigm paralysis institutionalised in western science.

It is a truism that breakthroughs often lie unrecognised for decades. "I'll see it when I believe it" could be the catch-cry for much of science. After the slow path to acceptance of each great new idea, it always seems so obvious in retrospect. We teach children in grade school ideas that defeated the greatest intellects for centuries. That being so, we must not let the reputation of even an Einstein stand in our way when seeking better paradigms. We must simply allow for the possibility that he was wrong, recognising that science is a highly conservative captive of fashion.

The Electric Universe opens up science again to the individual. Science will blossom in the new millenium as a cultural activity more integrated with history, the arts and the human condition."

The Electric Sky
"A revolution is beginning in astronomy and cosmology that will rival the one set off by Copernicus and Galileo. The stream of increasingly bizarre pronouncements coming from astronomers and cosmologists has recently encountered a serious challenge. This challenge is led by a cadre of scientists and engineers, several of whom were Nobel Prize winning pioneers. They are offering simpler, verifiable explanations about the makeup and functioning of the cosmos. Their new ideas, in more ways than one, are electrifying the discourse in astrophysics.

The defenders of the present cosmological realm are resisting this intrusion into their once exclusive domain. But on-going discoveries about how electric plasma behaves in space are relentlessly forcing dramatic changes in the way we view the universe. The discipline of electric plasma physics - which until lately has been outside the realm of astronomy - is quickly displacing many of the outmoded theories of traditional cosmology and astrophysics. We now know that cosmic space is full of electricity (electric plasma) and over the last several decades the study of this form of matter has developed into an established body of scientific knowledge."

The Plasma Universe
"Scientists driving the development of plasma models of the universe tend to be electrical engineers or plasma physicists, instead of astrophysicists and mathematicians who dominate cosmology today. For electrical engineers, plasmas are eminently practical. They already are in widespread use for industrial applications. They can be thoroughly studied experimentally, and they exhibit similar behaviours over a wide range of size scales. Thus the equations for controlling a plasma stream etching a silicon chip that will become a computer microprocessor are basically the same equations that govern the movement of the aurora or solar wind, or, they say, a galaxy.

With apparent inevitability, an increasing number of electrical engineers have extended their plasma interests beyond Earth, into such realms as interplanetary "space weather" and plasma laboratory astrophysics. Their fundamental view on cosmology is that electromagnetic forces sculpt the broad outlines of the universe; gravitational forces shape the details only after electromagnetic forces have first drawn the diffuse matter close enough together for gravity to become significant.

The plasma modelers readily admit that they offer no proposal about the universe's origin and age. That issue, as well as the size of the universe, lies beyond their horizons of experimentation and simulation. Nonetheless, at the beginning of the twenty first century, electrical engineers are marshaling a growing body of evidence that points to the necessity of integrating plasmas into the core of cosmological thinking."

Plasma-Universe.com
"This is a Wiki about the Plasma Universe, a model of the universe in which electromagnetic forces dominate since 99.999% of the universe is plasma (charged particles). Although the equal numbers of charged particles tend to cancel, the tendency results in "quasi-neutrality", and charge separation may occur.

A consequence of the Plasma Universe is that it does not require esoteric physics, such as black holes, dark matter and neutron stars.

Although the Plasma Universe is not as well developed as "Standard cosmology", the plasma physics behind it, is. While much of the Plasma Universe is peer reviewed, it has been subjected to much pseudoskepticism."

Plasma Cosmology .net

"This web site aims to provide an introduction to the emerging Plasma Universe paradigm, and to explore some of the many profound implications.

Mainstream science, for the most part, looks on the universe as electrically neutral and purely mechanical; a place where the weak force of gravity holds fort. Plasma Cosmology, by contrast, acknowledges the electrodynamic nature of the universe. Gravity and inertia are NOT the only forces at work.

The history of science, of course, is fraught with controversy, and it is important to bear in mind that the situation today is little different."

Maverick Science
"In recent years the various space probes and astronomical observatories have revealed unequivocal evidence of catastrophic forces throughout the solar system including colossal electrical scarring on the respective planets and their satellites, cometary impacts on planetary bodies, the fall of Martian meteorites to Earth, and the ubiquitous effects of plasma. Like a Tsunami looming over the horizon, this wave of new scientific findings threatens to overturn everything you thought you knew about the history of the Earth and its place in the solar system. And, as is often the case with scientific revolutions, mainstream astronomers don't even see it coming."

Mythopedia
"Since the beginning of the Space Age, cosmologists and geophysicists have made great strides in modelling the electromagnetic environment of the earth in response to the solar wind and other external features impinging on the earth, such as Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) and, far less frequently, cometary intruders into the inner solar system.

Our purpose is to consider how knowledge of this kind might aid our understanding of traditional ideas about cosmology and the recent history of the earth, as documented in the history of astronomy, cultural astronomy, archaeoastronomy and certain classes of mythology and ancient ritual.

Aurorae, the zodiacal light and various transient atmospheric events have been recorded throughout history. "

Mikamar Publishing
"More and more people are beginning to understand that modern academia has fabricated a loose assembly of falsitiesóa modern mythology little better than the primitive ones at which we sneeróconcerning the origins of humans on earth, languages, religions, ancient civilizations, and the unsound psychological condition of mankind. Not because of the dictates of 'sacred literature', not because of some mystical revelation does this awareness begin to dawn, but because these unwieldy constructions cannot stand the force of logic and critical thinking, because they fail to become integrated into something meaningful that makes sense, and because they fail the simple test of consistency."

Thunderbolts Forum

A truly excellent forum for discussions of all things EU/PC related. Subjects include: Electric Universe; Planetary Science; Net Talk; Resources; Thunderbolts Picture Of The Day (TPOD); Future of Science; The Human Question; and New Insights and Mad Ideas.

This is one of the most comprehensive forums on the web, and is frequented by both the serious scientist and the layperson alike. People of all levels of understanding are welcome and encouraged to share ideas in an open and friendly environment. The Thunderbolts Forum is a great EU/PC general knowledge enhancement tool.

Thunderblogs

In late 2007 I accepted an invitation to join the Thunderbolts Project as Managing Editor of a new concept to replace the old "news and views" section, now called Thunderblogs. We have drawn together a team of talented commentators who will offer, in the words of David Talbott, "Timely presentations of fact and opinion, with emphasis on new discoveries and the explanatory power of the Electric Universe".

With laypersons, professionals and Guest contributions Thunderblog has become a dynamic and varied source of commentary on many up-to-date happenings in astrophysics, cosmology and related fields.
