Seeking the Inevitable
Known for its unique cosmic rays
The Potential Missing Link
It has been suggested by some of the leading scholars that the dawn of mankind - the most cognitive species on our planet - had an extraterrestrial power standing behind it. As far back as 1973, science writer and astronomer Carl Sagan proposed that cosmic rays reaching Earth from some far off neutron star might well have been responsible for sudden leaps in human development. More recently scientists are beginning to consider that high-energy cosmic rays might have played such a role, causing alterations in DNA sequences that become are carried forwards through subsequent generations. Evidence also suggests that human cognitive ability is much more directly affected by cosmic-ray effects as many of the great geniuses in modern history emerged in times of increased cosmic-ray density. I have produced a study of this interrelationship under the title: "Mankind: Children of the Universe - cosmic rays and mental development."
It is being suggested that a powerful cosmic-ray generator 37,000 light years distant (app of 10 kiloparsec) in our own galaxy might have contributed to the effect, which has been designated as the binary-star quasar Cygnus X3, located roughly in the middle of the Cygnus Constellation (also called the swan).
The perception is that Cygnus X3 is a neutron star that remained after a star explosion app. 700,000 years ago. It is deemed to be spinning at a rate of 4.79 hrs per revolution, producing gamma-ray and x-ray bursts at such intervals, and cosmic-ray emissions, and in addition for 'unknown' reasons also releases a radio wave shower ever 367 days. Since in general perception the recognition of electric forces in cosmology is ruled out, the entire phenomenon is explained by rendering the central object of Cygnus x3 a "spinning neutron star."
concept of the neutron star is mythical concept of the gravity-only-universe
perception, where it is needed to explain pulsating energy emanating from a
typically binary star configuration, a different concept for pulsars and quasars
comes to light in the electric cosmology where the powering force of the
Universe is recognized to be nearly entirely electric energy flowing in plasma.
In this context the pulsating
energy patterns are recognized as the result of repetitive electric discharge
events between two closely related stellar bodies.
All indications suggest that Cygnus X3 falls into the functional category that the Crab Nebula belongs to, except in a much more extreme manner, resulting from its location in an extremely energy-dense region of space as is the region marked by the cross of constellation Cygnus that is associated with the flight of a swan along the galactic ecliptic.
The Cygnus region of space (along the ecliptic) contains a vast network of immensely energetic Birkeland current filaments that light up the entire region, called in astronomy the "Cygnus Loop" or in another part of it, the "Cygnus Crescent."
In these vast networks of glowing networks of electric currents many stars are surrounded by immensely energetic networks of electric currents, such as seen in the examples below.
NASA Hubble Heritage - NGC 6826 - 2,200 ly distant
These nebula are not small phenomena, The region seen here (NGC 7027) is approximately 14,000 times as wide as the average distance between Earth and the Sun (14,000 AU - in comparison, the solar heliosphere that contains the entire solar system is a mere 100 AU wide, which would likely be to small to be visible on the above scale).
In the gravity-only cosmology, the nebula are burnt-out, gravity-collapsed, stars that have exploded in supernova events by which much of their matter was thrown outward with the force of a shockwave. In the electric cosmology a supernova happens when a star becomes the focus of shifting Birkeland currents that cause a massive electric discharge event, followed by continued current inflows. The resulting nebula that dot the galactic landscape are all vastly different from each other in shape, but they appear to be all visibly bipolar in nature unless the viewing angle coincides with the axis of the plasma current.
Nebulas are all gigantic electric formations, which, however merely reflect the vastly larger formations of Birkeland currents in space that become visible in energetically dense electric plasma environments.
The above photo (a part of the Cygnus Loop) is a combination of separate images taken in three colors by temperature (with blue at the high end - 30,000 to 60,000 degrees Celsius - ranging down to the red at around 10,000 degrees Celsius, reflecting differences in the plasma current energy density).
It is this kind of vastly extended high-power environment that Cygnus x3 is located in, far in the distance, some 37,000 light years away (app. 10 kiloparsecs).
The point that I am trying to make is that Cygnus x3 is not exceptional in principle. Its pulses are repeated plasma discharge events between to planetary objects. The repetition rate depends on that charge recovery. No rotating neutron stars are needed to produce the observed phenomenon of energetic burst from radio waves to x-ray and gamma rays, including cosmic rays (high energy electrons and protons moving near the speed of light). The vide and of radiation is typical for for high-power plasma discharge events. Our sun emits all of these in a modest fashion, being powered by continuous electric discharges. Cygnus x3 stands out in that its radiated energy burst are more energetic. Since Cygnus x3 is not optically visible and is 'seen' only in x-ray light, retails are sparse, but it appears that we may be looking down the barrel of a stellar equivalent of a super-energetic plasma focus device.
When cosmic rays reach the Earth they typically do so in a scattered fashion and with just enough energy that few hundred feet of concrete is sufficient to dissipate their energy and stop them. Being electrically charged, they typically pass clear through the atomic structures in their path, according to the electric repulsion principles. (High-energy neutrons in comparison are immensely destructive, by not having an electric charge that assures collision avoidance.) Cosmic-ray particles from Cygnus x3 are evidently electrically charged, but differ in that their greater energy content enables them to penetrate 2000 feet of rock. (See: the Soudan underground physics facility )
The question remains to be answered, which is just recently being asked in earnest, whether Cygnus X3 had an impact on human development. Here we venture into speculation. When high-energy particles pass through anything, they typically generate a magnetic field, which no matter how minute or brief in duration, induce a corresponding secondary electric current. Since the human biological functions are electro magnetically expressed significant levels of induced electric energy might have a beneficial effect on human development, which in fact might depend on it. Since the cosmic-ray density from Cygnus x3 likely becomes attenuated by the shielding action of our solar heliosphere in the same proportion as all the other cosmic rays from other sources, their density would have been twice as great during the ice ages than they are today. Eighty percent of mankind's past occurred during ice age conditions. Ice age conditions result from increased cosmic-ray density.
It is a well known fact that cosmic rays, interacting with the Earth's atmosphere, increase ionization and thereby increase cloud formation. Increased cloud formation over longer periods causes colder climates. Clouds radiate a portion of the solar energy back into space. Increased cloud formation also reduces the water vapor in the atmosphere, which reduces the greenhouse effect that is up to 97% caused by water vapor. When increasing snowfall in colder climates increase the white surface of the Earth, the climate becomes colder still, which then flips into ice age conditions. The critical factor in all of this, appears to be the cosmic-ray density, which is controlled by the attenuating effect of the heliosphere, which in turn reflects the electric intensity around the solar system. The bottom line is that the cosmic rays are a terrible foe in that they are a factor for causing ice ages, but also appear to be highly beneficial for mental development. To what degree Cygnus x3 affects one factor over the other factor is unknown, and may not be known for some time, because still another factor enters the equation - the factor of intensity rather than density, which puts the Cygnus X3 source into a category of its own.
It may well be that its greater energy-intensity is producing effects that
ordinary cosmic-ray interaction cannot produce. The puzzle of the deep
penetration of the particles of the Cygnus X3 source has led to speculation that
a different type of cosmic-ray particle other than energetic protons or
electrons is involved that has not been encountered before and remains yet to be
The now recognized unique nature of the particles from the Cygnus X3 source, which is believed to have become active around 700,000 years ago, is deemed to have had a decisive impact on human development where the differentiation that makes us human may have really begun. The app. 700,000-year timeframe coincides roughly with the dividing line between the early sequence of human development and the later sequence that took us past homo erectus.
(1) australopithecus rudolfensis, (2) the australopithecus habilus, (3) the homo ergaster, (4) the homo erectus, (5) the homo antecessor, (6) the homo heidelbergensis, (7) the homo neandertalensis, (8) modern human species, the homo sapiens - the sole survivors of the chain of development and the shortest lived of them all, at barely 200,000 years of age.
The 700,000-year timeframe is as much an approximation as are assumed timeframes of the early human species. The apparent fact that we have two separate sequences of development with a gap of more than a million years between them makes it reasonable to speculate that the dawn of Cygnus X3 and the beginning of the second sequence of human development coincide.
The real significance of Cygnus x3 for the course of humanity may lay elsewhere. The scientific focus on it may help to lift mankind out of the backwaters of mythological dreaming that is presently endangering human civilization and potentially mankind's future, if not its very existence.
Since cosmic radiation from Cygnus x3 comes only in short bursts every 4.79 hours, its impact is likely too minuscule to affect anything in today's world in a significant manner. The critical factor in today's world, thus evidently lies not in the stars but in the electric power cycles of the galaxy that affect our solar system and directly impact our climate on Earth. These cycles are more immediate, more knowable, and are more powerfully affecting us than anything else. These are the cosmic factors that determine the climate on Earth in which the cosmic-ray factor plays a critical role in the chain of interactions that lead to the recurring glaciation cycles, which in turn affect our food resources that depend on agriculture that is vulnerable to becoming disabled by sudden large scale cooling in the prime growing areas, most of which a vulnerable to glaciation proceeding from the poles towards the equatorial regions.
The ice age precursors are precursors in the dynamics that affect the cosmic-ray flux density.
The ice age precursors are electric cycles that are known to a significantly large extend, to the point that we can now scientifically explore the evidence of a number of relevant precursors for the coming ice age transition for which preparations can be made by mankind to protect its food resource from the recurring ice age climate. While the actual transition point is not predictable, it is knowable that the Earth is presently in the transition phase to the next glaciation cycle. One precursor along this line has been recognized as the progressive shrinking of the solar heliosphere (by 20% so far) that NASA has reported in the context of its historic ULYSSES probe, in conjunction with an increase in high-energy cosmic rays affecting the Earth of roughly the same magnitude. While the precursors are known, the current leaders of the sciences and the nation's policies, and indeed society itself, tend to turn a blind eye to the precursor evidence whereby the critical preparations are not being made.
If the Cygnus X3 promise holds true, that increased cosmic-ray density also increases the cognitive power of mankind, then, considering the already beginning increase in cosmic-ray density, we may soon see a dramatic change happening in mankind's attitude towards one other that will prompt the building of the massive infrastructures that are needed to protect the global agriculture from the resuming ice age climate.
While we look to the stars from behind the veil of mythological beliefs, becoming tied into knots with improvable theories and cosmic dreaming, it would be far more beneficial to look with open eyes at the already known challenges before us, which are immediate, and which we cannot survive if we fail to act on them, for which we have the physical capacity and the resources already at hand.
Perhaps the biggest factor of the Cygnus x3 phenomenon that has come to the foreground in recent years, is its potential from bringing the question of mythology vs reality in the sciences to the foreground, so that the actually critical issues can at last be addressed.
What we should also learn by looking at Cygnus x3
as a high-power electric phenomenon, is that we live in a universe that is immensely electric energetic,
with free electric energy surrounding us that has so far been given no
consideration for utilization as a boundless energy resource for an infinite
future for us all.
