'Earth under fire' by Dr Paul LaViolette - book review

icon-mk-burning-earth
A month ago, I read a very good book by Dr Paul LaViolette recently called ‘Secrets of Anti-Gravity Propulsion’; it was an excellent mix of solid theoretical and engineering studies and fascinating new ideas and theories about our reality and the technological development of our species in the last century or more.

As a follow-on to that book, I’ve been reading another book by Dr LaViolette, Earth under fire. In this book, Dr LaViolette explores a very different topic to anti-gravity research, modifications to Einstein’s Relativity et al. Instead, LaViolette puts forward a dramatic idea, that the centre of our galaxy is not a nest of black holes, which is the dominant view in the science establishment at the moment, but that it is a centre of extreme matter creation. What’s more, periodically, this very active centre of our galaxy spews out a vast amount of new material in a wave of high energy particles and radiation. LaViolette explains in his book that there is a lot of historical evidence that our planet has been hit periodically by these waves of new, high-energy material and that our forebears have inscribed that fact in their writings and theories. For example, our zodiac includes two key figures, the Scorpion and the Centaur Archer. The Scorpion’s sting-tail and the end of the Centaur Archer’s arrow stand over the centre of our galaxy. This is a very surprising coincidence considering the centre of our galaxy is invisible to us because of intervening dust clouds. LaViolette uses these facts, along with the geological record, ice core studies and the stories of indigenous peoples, to put forward the idea that, in around 12,000 BC, our planet was hit by such a wave from the centre of our galaxy. This wave of high energy particles pushed a vast amount of interstellar dust, against the solar-wind which usually keeps out such dust, into our inner solar system. This vast amount of dust caused chaos on Earth and triggered the catastrophic end of our ice age.

It’s interesting to note that Dr LaViolette uses an idea in his book that I also concluded, years ago, that the Book of Revelations is not about our future, as it says in the introduction to that chapter in the New Testament, but an account of a cataclysm in our ancient past. LaViolette points out that the events described in Revelations match exactly what would occur when a vast incursion of dust and disturbed comets entered our inner solar system and hit Earth.

I definitely recommend ‘Earth on Fire’. It is a bit over-wordy in places and I did skim a few pages here and there but overall, it’s a fascinating, well-researched and compelling theory.

Jonathan Cape Graphic Short story 2017

This year's winner of the Jonathan Cape Graphic Short Story competition is in the Guardian today (or the Observer on Sunday, to be exact) and it's a heartwarming tale about compatibility and romance. Congratulations to this year's winner! I'll chat about the recent winners and then I'll show my graphic short story entry…

First line from this year's winner (Tor Freeman):

It's interesting to see what the competition organisers are looking for nowadays. Last year's winner was a milkman's desire to win his local Tall Milkman competition. This seems, I think, to show that Cape are currently after low-key, heartwarming stories about everyday life. Both stories are also illustrated in a style that's akin to a children's book illustration, making them accessible to a larger age group.

Sample line from last year's winner (Matthew Dooley):

Hidden chamber in the Great Pyramid

icon-mk-osiris
This week, there's been an announcement that three independent teams have detected the existence of a hidden chamber inside the Great Pyramid at Giza using muon scattering. In other words, they've been analysing how muons, subatomic particles that pass through our Earth all the time, have been deflected as they've passed through the Great Pyramid. The chamber the team detected is almost as large as the Grand Gallery in the Great Pyramid and is located above it and to one side, close to the King's Chamber, as shown in the picture below. Note that the teams couldn't decided exactly where the chamber was, only its approximate location and orientation.

Articles about this announcement have appeared in most of the newspapers and the BBC. The project organisers have also produced a very good video describing their work:



The Guardian has an extensive article describing what the teams found. Unfortunately, in the article one of the team members is quoted as saying:

“What we are sure about is that this big void is there, that it is impressive, and was not expected by any kind of theory,” said Tayoubi.


In fact, the French researcher Jean-Pierre Houdin developed a solid and well-grounded theory, years ago, that predicted that there had to be hidden chambers inside the Great Pyramid.

Website update

icon-mk-telebot-reading
Just a quick note to say that I’m revamping this website, slimming it down and making it easier to read on mobile devices. I’ve tried to keep the important stuff, update and correct some of the older content and make the articles more accessible. Hopefully that'll improve it! :-)

Interview with Grant Cameron - Consciousness and UFOs

icon-mk-odd-alien1
Here's a very interesting interview with the Canadian journalist and author Grant Cameron. Grant has delved into many subject. He started investigating Near Death Experience (NDE) phenomena, then moved into UFO investigations, simply because UFO encounters were occurring in his neighbourhood near the border with the United States. He worked in-depth in that area for many years, and then came to the startling conclusion (as it was for him at the time) that mind and consciousness was the real topic of importance, as mind and consciousness were the basis for all reality. This conclusion connected with his UFO investigations, as it became clear in his discussions with senior figures in the military black-projects and UFO domains that ESP or Extra-Sensory Perception was the primary way for pilots of advanced craft to operate their vehicles. This fundamental required ability does crop up in other UFO encounter stories, particularly that of the Hill abduction, described in the book 'The Interrupted Journey'. Grant makes some significant claims in his interviews, in particular that Hilary Clinton was going to disclose the UFO situation when she became president. Sadly, we'll never know the truth of this for sure, as America supposedly elected a Klu Klux Klan sympathiser instead.

'Secrets of Anti-gravity Propulsion' by Paul Laviolette - book review

icon-mk-collection
My last blog entry was a review of Paul Laviolette's video talk on antigravity technology and the theoretical physics behind it. In this blog entry, I'm reviewing his book 'Secrets of Antigravity Propulsion'. I'm pleased to say that it is an excellent book. Many books on the subjects of UFO technology, free energy and secret space programmes are often light on solid theory and therefore hard to believe but Dr Laviolette's book is thick with quality physics and solid experimental evidence.

Dr Laviolette is qualified and experienced as a physicist and engineer and shows it with his in-depth descriptions in the book of sub-quantum kinetics, an alternative theoretical description of the fundamental behaviour of reality. On the science direct website, there is an article by Laviolette describing this theory, entitled 'The Cosmic Ether: Introduction to Subquantum Kinetics'. The abstract reads:

Dr Paul Laviolette talk on electro-gravitics

icon-mk-rocket
Here is a very interesting video of a presentation by the physicist Paul Laviolette on the subject of alternative physics theories, Townsend Brown, electro-gravitics and related matters. Dr Laviolette speaks slowly in the video, which can take some getting used to, but everything he says is worth thinking about, so if you factor in the time needed to think about what he’s saying, the talk goes very quickly!

Climate change - We're now in Survival Earth

icon-mk-burning-earth
I haven't talked about climate change recently on this website because I don't want to moan or get all self-righteous or just bore everyone (which is very easy to do on the subject of climate change!) To be honest, there is vast amounts of evidence available to show that our planet is warming dangerously and that it's down to all the fossil fuels we're burning; that fact is based on very simple physics. It's also clear what we need to do reduce its effect; stop burning fossil fuels, eat less meat and do our utmost to curb and eventually reduce our population. It's all pretty straightforward.
