The first volume of ?Ether Physics and Philosophy? had three parts:
- 'Introduction' defined special terms and reasons why here ether is called that Single-One as really one gapless basic substance.
- 'Universal Movement' described nature of basic movements by which ether of whole universe might swing.
- Local Movements' showed basic pattern of appearances, according to possibilities and necessities of that ether understanding.
The second volume now starts with the fourth part ?Inclusions / Exclusions? at which is shown, already an appearance physically exits as gapless matter - plasma - so ether well can be assumed as real continuum analogue to aggregate status of plasma.
Meanwhile discussions showed, many readers can not imagine how any motions could come up within that solid matter of ether. Many other ether-theories avoid that problem as they do not define basic characteristics of their understanding of ether or do not talk about numerous prerequisites for assumed functions of ether.
At this fourth part also is reported about ?The Principle of Existence? by Harald Maurer, who most exactly names prerequisites of his basic T.A.O. (the absolute organization), practically ?granules? of most small units. These units require space so affecting mutual ?All-Pressure?. Vortices systems at T.A.O. represent physical appearances and also these affect mutual pressures. Based at this simple principle of existence, Maurer explains most astonishing many occurrences of physics and also biology. I agree with many of his sights, so I refer to his works and can concentrate at points of view I have different or opposite understanding.
This second volume also has fifth part ?Particle Movement?, at which I actually wanted to show only some examples, how particles of gases or liquids in principle move respective has to move - so later I could easier explain, why movements of gapless ether must show quit other nature resp. why ether can not exist of particles at all. However that section of chapters got self-running and much voluminous because surprisingly came up quite new insights of most far reaching importance.
Major law of physics is constant of energy, which most obvious appears at mechanics. Opposite to solid bodies however, particles of fluids can move free into any directions. That chaotic molecular movements result static pressure. Fluid particles fly all times into direction of relative void and by that ?suction? flows come up. Flows affect dynamic pressure and same time correspondingly reduced static pressure. Basic law of energy-constant thus appears at fluids as law of constant dynamic plus static pressures.
At fluids, likely absolute valid are experience-statements of thermodynamics, where inevitable heat losses of all processes are deduced, i.e. technical systems can show efficiency only less than hundred percents. Present days techniques by majority are based on combustion technologies, i.e. application of heat and pressure, with just minimum efficiency in total.
Opposite at fluids, trigger for generating flows by suction demands minimum energy input, because chaotic movements only become little bit better ordered, i.e. kinetic energy latent existing within fluids now become usable ?external?. So there is no real input of energy necessary to produce flow of increased dynamic pressure on account of reduced static pressure. Condition is only to organize relative void (like continuously done e.g. by wings), however already each faster flow affects ?sucking? towards neighbouring areas (like e.g. any whirlwind demonstrates enormous potential of molecular movements of air particles).
At applications of suction speed of molecular movements are reduced by parts, so particles demand less space and continuously thus new particles will fall into that part-vacuum. When producing cold thus quite new interpretation of thermodynamics comes up, resulting possibilities for increased efficiency resp. offering surplus-benefits by essentially reduced efforts.
Based on many examples and applications I developed that sight, at first also supported by calculations partly most ?strange?, while formula and calculations of last few chapters are deduced and applied most significant. So probably is recommended first to study summary quite at end of book, in order to follow thread of ideas and considerations and result most easy.
Naturally I will go on publishing new chapters at my website and later to document again by volume 3, then however only concerning subject of ether - and probably with results likely ?strange? and most interesting.

"The purpose of this book is to address the growing recognition of the need for plasma physics in astrophysics. In fact, astrophysics has contributed to the growth of plasma physics, especially in the field of plasma waves . During the last decade, plasma physics, or more appropriately, plasma science, has witnessed an explosive growth in two areas : pulsed-power technology and space physics. Both have led to knowledge that is mutual and complementary, and the material in this book largely derives from these new discoveries and their application to astrophysics. [..]
"Today plasma is recognized as the key element to understanding the generation of magnetic fields in planets, stars, and galaxies; phenomena occurring in stellar atmospheres, in the interstellar and intergalactic media, in radio galaxies, in quasars, and in active galactic nuclei ; and the acceleration and transport of cosmic rays . There are convincing arguments for the view that the clouds out of which galaxies form and stars condense are ionized : The problem of the formation and structure of these clouds and bodies, therefore, naturally belongs to the field of cosmic plasmas as well as astrophysics. [..]
"Together these problems form what is called The Plasma Universe, the basis for this book . The material presented dwell s basically on the known properties of matter in the plasma state. Some of the interesting topics in contemporary astrophysics such as discordant redshifts and other cosmological issues are not discussed here . The interested reader will be referred to the IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, Special Issues on Space and Cosmic Plasmas (December 1986, April 1989, and February 1990), and Laser and Particle Beams (August 1988). [..]
"This book is organized into eight chapters. Chapter 1 is an introduction to the fundamental physics of cosmic plasmas . An attempt is made to review the known properties of plasmas from the laboratory scale to the Hubble distance. Chapter 2 starts the application of basic plasma theory to astrophysical plasmas in the study o f magnetic-field-aligned (Birkeland) currents and charged particle beams . Chapter 3 covers magnetism in plasma and the Biot-Savart force law, while Chapter 4 concen - trates on electric fields in space and cosmic plasmas . Chapters 5, 6, and 7 survey double layers, synchrotron radiation, and energy transport in plasmas, respectively. Chapter 8 covers the particle-in-cell simulation of astrophysical plasmas. Found throughout the book are examples that apply the material of the chapter or section to specific problems."
Today many scientists recognize plasma as the key element in understanding new observations in interplanetary and interstellar space, in stars, galaxies, and clusters of galaxies, and throughout the observable universe. Plasma astrophysics and cosmology, as a unified discipline, cover topics such as the large scale structure and filamentation of the universe; the microwave background; the formation of galaxies and magnetic fields; active galactic nuclei and quasars; the origin and abundance of light elements; star formation and the evolution of solar systems; redshift periodicities and anomalous redshifts; general relativity; electric fields; the acceleration of charged particles to high energies; and cosmic rays.
Plasma Astrophysics and Cosmology is an update on the observations made in radio, optical, and high-energy astrophysics, especially over the last decade, and addresses the paradigm changing discoveries made by the planetary probes and satellites, radio telescopes, and the Hubble space telescope. Over twenty contributors, all distinguished plasma scientists, present an entirely new picture of the nature of our plasma universe with articles ranging from the popular level to advanced topics in plasma cosmology.

Plasma physicist Lerner opens one of science's inner rooms to a popular audience in this headline-making history of time, space and the humanistic sociology of science. Illustrated.

From Library Journal
From Steven Weinberg's The First Three Minutes (Basic, 1976. o.p.; 1988. pap.) to Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time ( LJ 4/15/88), numerous science popularizations have expounded the Big Bang Theory for the origin of the universe as indisputable fact. Readers of those books will find this one startling and intriguing. Lerner, a plasma physicist, points out flaws in the Big Bang model and proposes an alternative theory: an eternal, self-sustaining "plasma" universe where electromagnetic fields within conducting gases provide other, simpler explanations for observed phenomena. His contention that the Big Bang is merely a repackaged creation myth is presumptuous, but well argued. To present a current scientific controversy to a general audience risks, on one hand, misleading the public and, on the other, circumventing the peer review process. This book, however, makes valid points in a convincing manner and does neither. Recommended for general science collections.

In recent years we have read about the "discovery" of black holes, neutron stars, cosmic strings, and such things as dark energy and invisible matter. Anyone who reads Sagan, Hawking, and the other popular astronomy writers can see how complicated and counter-intuitive the concepts of modern astrophysics are becoming. Even so, until recently, I assumed that astronomers and astrophysicists knew what they were talking about.
Now ? I?m sure they do not.
It was when astrophysicists began saying things that I, as an electrical engineer, knew were wrong that I began to have serious doubts about their pronouncements. But I agonized over whether those doubts were legitimate. Even though my life-long avocation has been amateur astronomy, my formal background is in engineering - not astronomy or cosmology.
Earning a doctorate in electrical engineering eventually led to my teaching that subject at a major university for thirty-nine years. What troubled me most was when astrophysicists began saying things about magnetic fields that any of my junior-year students could show were completely incorrect.
If astrophysicists were saying things that were demonstrably wrong in my area of expertise, could it be that they were making similar mistakes in their own field as well? I began to investigate more of the pronouncements of modern astrophysicists and the reasoning behind them. This book is an account of what I unearthed when I started digging into this question.
It is becoming clear that knowledge acquired in electric plasma laboratories over the last century affords insights and simpler, more elegant, more compelling explanations of most cosmological phenomena than those that are now espoused in astrophysics. And yet astrophysicists seem to be intent on ignoring them. Thus, lacking these fundamental electrical concepts, cosmologists have charged into a mind-numbing mathematical cul de sac, creating on the way a tribe of invisible entities - some of which are demonstrably impossible.
I have tried to hack a path through these hypotheses, contradictions, and alternative explanations that will be clear and understandable for the average interested reader to follow. The answers to the questions we ask are not stressfully convoluted and arcane - rather, they are logical, straightforward, and reasonable - and long overdue.
I hope your journey through these pages will be meaningful, educational, perhaps exciting, and most important of all, eye-opening.
I really love this book. It is causing me to rethink a great deal of my own work. I am convinced that The Electric Sky deserves the widest possible readership.... I felt genuine excitement while reading and felt I was delving into a delicious feast of new ideas. -- Gerrit L. Verschuur, PhD, University of Manchester. A well-known radio astronomer and writer, presently at the Physics Department, University of Memphis. He is the author of "Interstellar matters : essays on curiosity and astronomical discovery".
It is gratifying to see the work of my mentor, Nobel Laureate Hannes Alfv?n enumerated with such clarity. I am also pleased to see that Dr. Scott has given general readers such a lucid and understandable summary of my own work. -- Anthony L. Peratt, PhD, USC, Fellow of the IEEE (1999), former scientific advisor to the U.S. Department of Energy and member of the Associate Laboratory Directorate of the Los Alamos National Laboratory. He is the author of Physics of the Plasma Universe
You don't have to be an astronomer to enjoy this book. It's an exciting story about how a small group of physicists, engineers and other scientists have challenged the establishment, the big science astronomers who are reluctant to listen to anyone outside their own elite circle. -- Lewis E. Franks, PhD, Stanford University, Fellow of the IEEE (1977), Professor Emeritus and Head of the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, University of Massachusetts (Retired)

The author Dr. L?szl? K?rtv?lyessy, a specialist in thermocouples with a world wide well known reputation, takes a look at the modern Astrophysics from the engineerings point of view. Alway prefering easy and direkt solutions in the industry, Dr. K?rtv?lyessy discovered that the Universe contains many unsolved "mystries" for which scientists create things like "dark matter" or "magnetic generators". Simple calculations reveal that there is a very simple solution which unlocks almost all modern mysteries...
Karry Mullis (Nobel laureated in 1993) wrote:
" I am absolutely fascinated. It is high time that someone with engineering skills looked at astronomy. You have clearly found something exciting. I was never comfortable with astrophysics, but for some dumb reason did not understand that it was the electrical aspect of matter that was missing. I have been away from physics, in another field for a number of years, but I know new intuitions in any scientific realm when I see them, and I see them in your work. Relax in the notion that someone a continent away is taking great pleasure in your work."

Primary subjects include: an introduction to the plasma universe; electrical challenges to Big Bang cosmology; discovery of the electric sun; and the electrical nature of comets. In language designed for scientists and non-scientists alike, the authors show that even the greatest surprises of the space age are predictable patterns in an electric universe.
This book not only complements The Electric Sky book, but actually overlaps very little, while covering cosmic quandaries and plasma and electricity in space. The chapter on the electrical properties of comets is such great material, thoroughly convincing.
A magnificent description of electricity in space. Authors Thornhill and Talbott offer a sweeping critique of today's popular cosmology. They show that galaxies, stars (including our Sun), and comets can be best understood through the well-tested behavior of electricity the one force about which astronomers seem to know almost nothing. Having now devoted many years to investigating this question, I am in full agreement. -- Donald E. Scott, professor of electrical engineering (retired)
On a plane back to London I read The Electric Universe from cover to cover (the light above my seat was the only one that remained on throughout the night). What a masterpiece. Each single sentence is absolutely spot-on and well formulated. This is just such a powerful textbook the potential and logic of the electric universe theory leaps off every page. The omission of mythological and other ancient data from the argument will undoubtedly help to forestall accusations of using 'tales and stories' to bolster a scientific theory. The book also conveys a strong impression that this theory has reached full maturation; it's not the incoherent ranting of someone exploding with a lot of new ideas, but obviously the fruit of many years of careful thinking and making associations. The soberness of tone and the lavish illustrations strike the right chord and I find it hard to imagine a reader who would not find the argument compelling. I have nothing to contend with concerning the main argument. -- Rens van der Sluijs
The last 150 years have seen immense progress in the understanding of electrical phenomena. Nevertheless, the conventional cosmology taught today remains essentially a theory of gravity. "The Electric Universe" presents an alternative theory that recognizes electrical forces as the dominant influence in shaping the universe, and a major factor in determining much of our cultural and historical experience. Based on well-understood principles that can be observed and demonstrated in any plasma laboratory, the electrical model also offers ready explanations for processes that continue to puzzle astronomers today. Compelling, highly readable, and superbly illustrated, this book provides a comprehensive introduction to what will surely be the beginnings of a scientific revolution in the years ahead. -- James Hogan, science/SF author

A failure of theoretical science has also contributed to this situation. Popular comet theory has never worked. The idea that comets are "dirty snowballs" or "icy dirtballs" evaporating in the warmth of the Sun is challenged by volumes of space age observation: an abundance of comet images and other data from several probes of comets, collected cometary dust samples, a close-up look at the impact of a projectile on a comet, measurements of charged particles in the comas of comets, considerable information on surface chemistry (including the baffling absence of water ice), and numerous observations of "impossible" comet behavior, such as discharging way too far from the Sun, explosive eruptions and even breakup of comets.
Yet a new understanding of comets is gaining increasing recognition, and this view has demonstrated a predictive ability far beyond that of the "standard" model. In fact, it has succeeded precisely where the standard model failed. The new view places the emphasis on the electrical behavior of comets, in a dynamic relationship with an electric Sun. If comets are discharging electrically as they move through the Sun's electric field, that fact alone will confirm a core tenet of the Electric Universe hypothesis.
The UNIVERSE ELECTRIC ebook series began with volume 1: Big Bang?, continued with volume 2: The Sun and continues with this volume 3: Comets. In simple language stripped of scientific jargon, and with spectacular photographs of cometary phenomena and numerous graphic illustrations, this third volume gives a view of a well-substantiated, electric model of cometary phenomena. Anchored in empirical science, it illuminates the shadowy confusion of anomalies and contradictions that the current popular theory has spawned.

Talbott and Thornhill claim that cosmic upheaval occurred so recently as to have profoundly affected early human cultures, provoking ?incomprehensible? myths, symbols, and commemorative practices. Through a synthesis of ancient testimony, high-energy plasma experiments, and space age discoveries, the authors bring the ancient world to life. If their hypothesis is correct, it could not fail to alter many paths of scientific investigation as well.
Thunderbolts of the Gods introduces the reader to a former age of planetary instability and earthshaking electrical events, and offers a revolutionary synthesis of historical investigation and the newly discovered Electric Universe. Solar system cosmic upheaval occurred so recently as to have profoundly affected early human cultures, provoking incomprehensible myths, symbols, and commemorative practices. Through a synthesis of ancient testimony, high-energy plasma experiments, and space age discoveries, the authors bring the ancient world to life. If their hypothesis is correct, it will surely alter many paths of scientific investigation as well. The little-known study of powerful electrical discharges in plasma is a new and exciting development in plasma cosmology , with profound implication for space age astronomy. To advance their case, the authors present side-by-side comparisons of laboratory plasma experiments and globally recurring symbols of the ancient sky. The evidence, they report, shows an ancient obsession with extremely violent electrical discharge formations in the heavens. Thunderbolts of the Gods is packaged with the 65-minute DVD, Thunderbolts - The Tutorial. This film introduces you to the key themes of the theory, and includes interviews with the principal figures in Electric Universe research.
In Thunderbolts of the Gods Talbott and Thornhill have combined their knowledge and expertise to present solid evidence for a revised view of Earth s history. Their work reveals that the tales, artifacts, customs and petroglyphs of the ancients that have come down to us through the fog of time tell a mutually consistent and powerful single story. Our planet s past has been filled with cataclysmic events some of which were witnessed by our early ancestors. At first, modern scientists claimed these events were physically impossible. But now it is becoming clear that not only the geological record provides strong evidence for these cataclysms, but the emerging study of plasma cosmology also demonstrates how these events could have indeed occurred. Only a few books rise to the level of importance whereby we can say This book truly changed my view of history . In my opinion this is such a book because once you have read it you will never look at art, ancient literature, mythology, opera, history, archeology, anthropology, or astronomy with the same eyes ever again. -- Donald E. Scott, Ph.D., retired professor of electrical engineering and author of The Electric Sky
Mainstream astronomy holds that the Solar System has remained stable and essentially as we see it today for billions of years, cycling with regular, repeating motions that can be extrapolated backward to reliably reconstruct conditions in the remote past. The assumptions upon which this belief rests date back over three centuries to the times of Kepler, Newton, and Laplace, which see a cosmos consisting of electrically neutral bodies moving in a vacuum under the sole influence of gravity. Yet space is now known to be pervaded by electrical plasma, and there is strong evidence that the planets and other bodies carry electric charge. Charged objects immersed in plasma spontaneously form double-layer isolating sheaths around themselves that contain their fields and prevent mutual electrical interaction. For as long as planets move without their "magnetospheres" coming into contact, quiescent conditions like those that exist today will prevail, which are indeed accurately modeled by gravitation. But should some disturbance or instability occur that causes magnetospheres to intersect, the bodies involved will experience sudden complex forces immensely more powerful than gravity, accompanied by-if they are at different potentials-colossal electrical discharges between them. In Thunderbolts of the Gods, David Talbott and Wallace Thornhill present a compendium of evidence from diverse sources showing that not only have such events affected the Earth, but they have done so within the time of recorded human history! From as far apart as China, Mesopotamia, Egypt, and the Americas, peoples of ancient times have left records in their myths, legends, religions, and art forms, of skies vastly different from those we see today, alive with spectacles of light, violence, and seeming heavenly deities in conflict that not only battled each other but brought widespread death and devastation to Earth. -- James P.
