Twinkle, Twinkle, Electric Star – Official Stories Chapter Excerpt

In this excerpt from Liam Scheff’s “Official Stories”,  we’ll see how even NASA is getting it wrong. Yes, even astronomy, the “queen of the sciences,” is locked up in the same fictions that dog the medical sciences and the political landscape. If “official stories exist to protect officials,” what’s the official story of outer space? The answer: Big Bang “theory” and stars as “nuclear bombs in space.” Are either true? Let’s have a look beneath the surface…

The Official Story: Stars are nuclear explosions in space.

The Lone Gunman: Gravity.

The Magic Bullet: No one really has one yet.

When humans first saw stars, they felt what we all feel. It even has its own word: starstruck. We marvel, we beam, our pupils open wide to let in the twinkling light. We feel that someone somewhere out there is looking at us, looking at them. It’s a wonderful, transcendent feeling.

When natural philosophers first set out to make a model of stars, they looked at fire on Earth – campfires, coal fires, forest and oil fires – and decided that stars were the same thing, only way up there. When humans forced the atomic attractions apart and exploded those monstrous bombs, they rethought the “campfire in space” model and called stars “nuclear furnaces.” But neither campfires nor nuclear explosions relate to what data-collecting telescopes have told us about the Sun.

First, where is a campfire hottest: above the fire, or in the burning coals? Don’t try to figure it out with bare hands. The answer is, in the source of the energy for the flame – the burning coals.

Where is a nuclear explosion hottest: in the center, at ground zero or a hundred miles away? Visitors to Hiroshima and Nagasaki know the answer. All fires and explosions are hottest and most violent at their source of energetic origin – the center. Where would you expect a star to be hottest: In the center, on the surface, or high above in its upper atmosphere?

The surface of the Sun is about 5,700 degrees Celsius. That’s almost four times the melting point of steel – which is hot. But, it’s surprisingly cool when you think that it warms our little planet, 93 million miles away.

So, how hot is the center? No one knows – no one’s been to or seen the center of a star, but sunspots do give a shallow view beneath the surface. Sunspots remain a mystery to the mainstream. They are like moving craters in the Sun, depressions in the surface revealing a glimpse of what’s underneath. And what’s underneath is cooler, by thousands of degrees.

This isn’t how a nuclear explosion works. But it makes sense to plasma physicists, who see sunspots as points where the strongest current flow from the galaxy punches holes in the bright surface, pushing back the sea of burning arc-plasma tornadoes that make up the surface of the Sun and revealing a sub-surface thousands of degrees cooler.

Does it make sense for a nuclear explosion? The mainstream has no explanation for this, just some impromptu hand-waving about disconnected magnetic fields (without understanding their electrical nature) with the obligatory catchphrase: “Another anomaly – send more money for research!”

But 10,000 kilometers above the surface, in the Sun’s atmosphere, called the corona, for “crown,” the temperature heats up. Not to thousands, but to millions of degrees, two to ten million. The Sun and all stars are hottest far above their surface. Why would that be?

The answer is, it’s not a campfire. It’s plasma.

If space is a sea of charged particles, then what should stars be, but massive gathering nodes for electrical current. Here’s the model: electrical lines of current in space, converging in a plasma, burst into arc mode as they concentrate on a large, central sphere. The Sun itself is an anode – not the source of energy, but a gathering point. The space around it is superheated by the convergence of plasma power lines, which burst into lightning arcs, reaching millions of degrees in the corona. The power comes from outside of the Sun. Which is why it’s cooler beneath the fire on top.

And if you don’t believe it, understand that the official story admits all of this – the Sun is hottest far above its surface. They don’t have an answer – they call it the “solar coronal heating problem.” They add it to a long list of “problems,” and keep collecting coins for their going theory. It’s gotta be rough to be a tenured academic researcher. They might as well put a sign on their clubhouse: “No new ideas allowed.”

By the way, I once overheard my uncle, the AIDS researcher, talking about places of possible employment for a Ph.D. He remarked “Well, there’s always the NIH, they never fire you.” In other words, it’s nice to guard the clubhouse. Except for the rest of us.

Electric Stars

There are two researchers who’ve done more exploration of this model than any others I know of: Ralph Juergens, who devised the electric sun model, and Wal Thornhill, who pursued and expanded it and who introduced it to readers and researchers through his incredible essays at I want to thank them both and I hope you look up their work. Ralph left the Earth behind in 1979, but look up his papers, I’ll bet he’ll appreciate it.

And here it is: the electric sun. Power-lines throttle through galaxies and converge in massive star forges. They increase in size and power and attract more and more material. Their attractive force increases as the particle flow becomes denser and brighter; it begins to scavenge local materials.

As plasma researcher Wal Thornhill told me in a 2010 interview:

“As far as we can see – and when I say ‘see,’ I mean that radio telescopes are very important in the electric universe because they can detect radio waves and detect their polarization.

The polarization of the radio waves allows you to map the magnetic field directions in space. Once you’ve done that, it’s a given in plasma physics that electric currents will flow along the direction of the ambient magnetic field lines. So in other words, you can begin to trace the circuits in deep space.

We find the galaxies themselves arranged like Catherine Wheels – that’s the great spiral galaxies – along intergalactic power lines, what are called Birkeland currents. They’re like giant twisted pairs of electric currents which flow through space.

In various places, if the density of matter – the gases and dust in space – are sufficient, these pinch down. It’s called a magnetic pinch [or z-pinch]. In pinching down, they scavenge the matter from the surrounding space and squeeze it, heat it, rotate it and form the stars that we see. They do that in a particular pattern which we can reproduce in the laboratory. That pattern is the spiral galaxy.

It’s an organic picture of the universe and it’s a connected picture. We’re not isolated islands in space. Stars are not isolated, they’re connected electrically and gravitationally. It’s a completely new way of looking at our place in the universe.”

The mainstream can’t get its head out of the 17th Century to examine electricity in space, but without it, they’re lost. The attractive and explosive forces in outer space are monumental. What holds galaxies together? What energy source drives the star forges? It’s not allowed to be electricity, that’s dinged from the start. Instead, it’s left up to old Immanuel Kant, again. Yes, NASA is back in the land of gravity, doing another thought-experiment.
