PlasmaResources.com is your one-stop-NON-shop for all the links
you'll ever need for exploring plasma cosmology (PC), our electric universe
(EU), and almost anything else even remotely related to the electrical nature
of space, climatology and our Earth.
So What Is EU/PC?
For too many years now cosmologists and astrophysicists have developed
their models around a gravitycentric theory, as if electricity has no
role in space. Nothing could be further from the truth. The electric
universe/plasma cosmology theories do not seek to dismiss gravity,
but to enhance our understanding of the universe by acknowledging the role that
the far superior force of electricity plays not only here on Earth (as if by
some unique miracle), but also throughout the cosmos. Nature doesn't do
things the hard way.
Plasma cosmology is nothing new. Pioneers such as
Kristian Birkeland, Irving Langmuir, Hannes Alfvén,
Ralph Juergens, Halton Arp, Anthony Peratt and others have
been investigating the electric alternative to gravitycentric models
for a century now, and utilizing such tools as observation,
laboratory replication and computer
simulation to develop their theories.
Meanwhile mainstream cosmologists have not only ignored but also denied
the role of electricity in space, despite recent plasma laboratory
experimentation which tends to support the electical theorists, and
offered us an ever-increasing list of ad hoc patches for their theories
which are continually confounded by even the most recent
observations made since the 'space age' began. The disastrous
results have been the inception of the big bang, black holes, dark matter,
dark energy and a host of other hypothetical entities which rightly belong
in the field of science fiction, rather than science fact.
Why Should I Care?
Why should you care? Because, it's your money, Ralph!
Billions are spent chasing these invisible, fictional entities around the
universe and inventing extra dimensions and fanciful notions which can
never be tested, whilst the little which gets spent on furthering our
understanding of plasma science does nothing but confirm the
position of the electrical theorists.
But that's just my take on it, and to take my word for it would be as
foolish as taking the word of the mainstream scientists that nothing
really did go BANG (?!?!) to create the universe we observe today.
Explore it for yourself. Have an open mind. I am sure that if you
follow the evidence, you'll come away with a completely different concept
of the universe than the one you grew up with. And it can't hurt to at
least have a look at it, can it?
It is my hope that you enter this site into the 'favourites'
section of your browser and use it as a gateway for all of your EU/PC
PlasmaResources.com is the culmination of spending many
days, hundreds if not thousands of hours, searching for information relating
to electric universe and plasma cosmology themes.
Whilst there are many great resources (and some not so great) on the web to
research almost anything, sorting the wheat from the chaff is not easy,
especially for the newcomer to the electronic wizzardry required to navigate
to and save the good stuff.
With this in mind I decided to put together a bunch of EU/PC relevant links
and display them all in a place free of bells and whistles, free of advertising,
free of clutter, in fact totally free of anything but resource links... and
maybe the gratuitous use of some awesome imagery just for fun.
I have also included a wide variety of mainstream and alternative sources of
information for balance, found mostly on the 'More Resources' and 'Odds and
It is my intention that this site be used by everyone from the serious
scientist to the layperson. It is laid out in a simple and straightforward
manner both to aid navigation and to avoid distractions. This site also aims
to be 'disability-friendly'.
Each page contains navigation on the left, and
quick-links on the right. The centre includes the
links for that page but also has a brief summary of what each site
is about. This way those who are new to the topics or the sites can
find out a little more about what they want to investigate, whilst
those familiar with the sites can click straight to them without having
to scroll down a page full of comments.
The bolded sections of the center page links are used
for the quick links. Comments directly from the site concerned are in
"quoted italic" font, and excerpted from the
page concerned or an "About" or similar page somewhere on site.
I have endeavoured to minimise page loading times by including small
display images. A mid-sized option (Dial-up/Forum size) is supplied
in the hope of allowing dial-up users to enjoy great pics without having
to wait a week, and also to facilitate smarter bandwidth usage on forums,
by encouraging those who wish to copy images for posting on forums to keep
to a maximum image size of 400 pixels in either dimension. The large
(Enlarge) pics are mostly sized to fit on screen without waiting too long,
and the HiRes option, only available on some of the images, offers still
larger JPEGs or TIFF files, for those with generous internet plans.
Whilst I have made every endeavour to include materials mostly relevant to
EU/PC themes, it is often quite difficult to draw the line, and I welcome
criticism and suggestions from serious users for improving the site in any
way. I am happy to consider suggestions for further links, and there are
probably some important ones I have not personally come across yet. I do
not however intend it to become a free-for-all for any and all alternative
themes out there, and will only include sites with some relevance to the
topic, or which I consider interesting from an EU/PC study perspective.
This is a dynamic site with ongoing changes and expansion. Your
participation is encouraged. If you have a site you would like
to have included on this site,
e-mail me with the details. Likewise I encourage those who's sites I
have linked to, to add a link to this site as a comprehensive directory
of further study resources.
Should you come across any links which don't work, please use the 'Report
Broken Links' tag from the page concerned.
My thanks and praises go to a few companies, without whose great deals
and software this site, free from paid advertisements and unnecessary
distractions, would not be possible. These are purely unsolicited
comments, and reflect my personal dealings and experience with these
companies, and are not to be seen as explicit endorsement for anyone
else's needs, but simply an acknowledgement of those I have had great
service and products from.
"HostMonster has been providing hosting solutions to thousands
of business and personal web sites since 1996. Our internet hosting package

When I first set up this site, I used a host which whilst cheap, once things began
to get busy for me, could not offer the service I required to keep the site running
I recently moved the site to HostMonster, and I know already that their service is
great, as I moved the Thunderbolts site to the HostMonster servers some months ago, after
running into difficulties with their old site hosts too.
Since dealing with HostMonster for many months now, I have found their
service to be outstanding. Their "help center" is not outsourced
like many, and you can even contact them by phone 24/7 to get help
when you're at your wits end. And considering their great service, their
deals are very competitively priced.

PayPal has enabled me to make online purchases in a safe
and secure manner, and their customer service is excellent, taking care
of queries promptly so as to alleviate any worries with payments. Instant
acknowledgement of payments processed means comfort in the knowledge that
orders for goods and services will be actioned without undue delay.
I use OpenOffice freeware for all of my often complicated
word processing needs (though I write my HTML code in Notepad++). OpenOffice
Writer has enabled me to make a large private collection of newsworthy events
of interest to me, and I also keep track of pic credits and details using their
program. With it I can open and create documents in all the leading formats,
and create PDF files to share information easily via e-mail with those who may
not have the expensive programs, as you can
Adobe Reader free if you don't have it already.
I'd be lost without Gimp 2.4, the free image manipulation
program. I have used Gimp to handle all of the pics on this site,
and it supports all of the popular formats. Gimp is a great tool for
all of my image processing needs.
As my web based activities have increased, so my need for a better program
for writing my mark-up grew. As I'm highly allergic to anything requiring
instructions, or that requires more than 10 minutes to get the hang of, or
which costs anything at all, I went in search of an open source text editor.
Enter Notepad++ the easiest program I've ever used, by far!
(Sorry Mac users, this one's only for Windozers...)
Notepad++ is just so easy to use. It's got heaps of 'Plug-ins' to give it
extra functionality, but I just use it bare bones. The handy thing is it does
the color code thing to make it easier to see what's what, yet you can limit
all the other bells and whistles so there's not too much happening at once.
One thing I don't particularly like is its FTP upload interface, hence the
next entry on this page...
When I realized I needed an FTP program for uploading to various sites,
I quickly found FileZilla Client, another great open
source program which does exactly what you want it to. It was so easy
to work out, I was uploading 5 minutes after installing it. It really
is that easy. Now that I'm used to it, I can upload files to the web
in under a minute, and there's nothing confusing about the interface.
I'd say it's a very 'comfortable' program to use. So if you need free
FTP, and you don't like the complicated and confusing proprietary
programs, grab this one and give it a whirl.
