Primordial plasma: Hot gas or streams of charged particles?

Complex rings, knots, and twisted streamers are often ejected from stars (and other celestial objects). The overall shape of so-called “planetary nebula” sometimes reveal gigantic, bifurcated jets emerging from the central star, indicating the beginnings of

Supermassive black hole at the center of cosmology

In physical reality there are no black holes. Instead there are intense magnetic field regions that are formed whenever the field strength in plasma becomes much stronger compared with its surroundings. The most intense magnetic field regions are formed at the most

Highlights of The Electric Universe Theory

The "Electric Universe" is a hypothesis, a new way of interpreting scientific data in the light of new knowledge about plasma and electricity. In this interpretation, gravity plays a secondary role behind the far more powerful electric force, and electrified plasma in
