This is a theory that’s rejected and apparently even ridiculed by mainstream cosmologists, astro-physicists and the like, that believe that only the force of gravity counts. They don’t take into account the possible central role and effects of electro-magnetism on the universe, apparently on account of how it would mess up their careers and funding to deviate from the established model.
This new (for me) theory explains something I didn’t realize: that black holes and black matter and black energy are just theories. They get presented to the general public in prestigious magazines and other major media, giving the impression that they are scientifically verified facts, but they're not.
I also used to think that only professional mathematicians could ever truly understand cosmology and related fields. That all I can do is helplessly accept scientific pronouncements as being the same as truth. Now I’ve found that there are physicists and such out there that can explain their ideas to us by using actual words.
The “Electric universe” concept is especially interesting, but be forewarned that there are some silly youtube videos that will come up in the search bar. (You know how youtube is. Anything goes. It's like the wild, wild west.)
So far my favorite presentations are by The Thunderbolts Project. They present different views from scientists from various disciplines, but they don’t simply dismiss ancient myths and symbolism. They see them as being clues that our skies may have changed radically since ancient times; clues that the universe changes, evolves.
It’s a relief to know that I don’t have to accept that whole “black hole/matter/energy” business, and infinite alternative universes, which always struck me as being somewhat preposterous. And I really like that they wonder about Big Bang and want to consider what might have gone on before. They just articulate so many things for me that I had doubted and wondered about.
The video below is a marvelous introduction to some of the concepts presented by The Thunderbolts Project.
