Thunderstorms and the Black Hole Principle

Thunderstorms and the Black Hole Principle

I think it is part of the human condition – to marvel at thunderstorms. These displays of electricity give us a feeling of connection to deeper processes to Nature. The sense of heightened awareness and danger in a storm are stark reminders of the immense power of the universe; thunderstorms represent the interface between us and the heavens.

Of course we have tried to explain thunderstorms scientifically. The story given to school children still today is that lightning is caused by the build up of a type of static electricity in clouds which discharges towards the Earth cause lightning strikes.

Another staple of school education is the water cycle. The clouds are formed by evaporated water which come inland then shed their water droplets on reaching the hills. It all seems so logical and seems to match our observations.

Except it isn’t, not quite. Measurements have shown us that the build up of ‘static’ ions in thunderclouds isn’t nearly enough to cause the powerful lightning bolts that we observe.

As for rain clouds, why is it even possible to see blue skies over the sea? Surely it should be full of evaporating water causing clouds. And why do some clouds rain and some not? Meteorologists are puzzled.

From the start of the my research I knew that there was something fundamental about water. I just didn’t quite know what.

Imagine my surprise when in the mid 2000s research started to emerge about the secret lives of thunderstorms. Satellite imaging had revealed a whole new world above the clouds.

New types of lightning were being discovered called exotic names such as elves and sprites. The big shocker was the findings of gamma-ray radiation above the clouds that corresponded to the positions of thunderstorms. To the amazement of scientists these were just as powerful as some of those seen coming from deep space.

Sprites, thunderstorms, terrestrial gamma ray flashes

I just could hardly believe it. Here in this phenomenon that had long fascinated humans was the same process that occurs in the Black Hole Principle.The same process that occurs in the centres of galaxies and made gamma-ray bursts and fast flashes of electrons was going on just a few miles above our heads. This was the missing link. But there was an element missing.

Antimatter: if I was right then antimatter needed to be part of the process. I didn’t have to wait too long. In 2010 NASA announced that they were going to investigate Terrestrial gamma-ray flashes. (Notice they don’t call them bursts. It’s almost like they don’t want o admit that they are just like the gamma-ray bursts in space.)

In 2011 the announcements of their shock findings were made: antimatter is produced in thunderstorms. Just as I had predicted would be the case in the Black Hole Principle. It was one of the greatest triumphs of the theory.

But of course there is more to a thunderstorm – there is rain. I still remember the day I walked outside and looked up with David Ash’s book in my hand. His words had made me feel so connected to it all. The rain started to pop onto my face, but I didn’t care. I knew I was staring up at the same process that happened inside galaxies. I knew that for my theory to be fully correct it needed something else. Black Holes in space should produce water just as they do on earth.

With this idea, I chose not to spell it out in my book, Punk Science. It seemed too preposterous. But it is there if you care to look and I was still working on the concept of water coming out of black holes even though I didn’t tell everyone I was doing so. In the book I explain how thunderstorms are a Black Hole Principle process. As I am putting forward that the same process occurs in black holes across the universe, by implication this means that water can also be produced by this process anywhere in the universe.

Again I didn’t have to wait many years for this to be proven in many different levels. My partner, James sent me a link to an article describing the largest body of water ever to be found in space. And it was coming out of a black hole!

After I heard this news, I don’t think I stopped sobbing for a full half hour! Words cannot describe the elation that you feel at scientific discovery, at being part of moving the sum of human knowledge that little bit forward. A quick search began to reveal the latest telescope results. Water was everywhere and in time it would even be found at the centre of the earth and being produced on Mars.

But the key to it all for me is the thunderstorm – still the pivot point between earth and the heavens where seemingly impossible power is being released and at light speeds too.

I hope we will one day stop lying to school children about clouds and static electricity and tell them the truth – that the universe is sublimely connected from the very large to the very small and the thunderstorm is in the middle of it all and that if you truly understand them you are one step further to understanding all of creation.

Black Holes and Water

Black Holes and Water

For many years even before the Black Hole Principle existed, I knew there was something interesting about water.  Those of you who know my work will recognise this as a c squared moment! I was sensing the future before it had happened.

The idea that there was something significant about water that we don’t understand would not leave me alone over the years. Whilst studying water in school, the process of Hydrogen bonds present in water struck me as interesting and unique. It was many years later, during the writing of Punk Science in 2004 that I had a moment that would profoundly change my whole understanding of not only the working of the universe ‘out there’ but our weather systems here on Earth.

Back then, I had just made the connection between the Terrestrial Gamma Ray flashes that occur in the Earth’s upper atmosphere during a thunderstorm and the gamma ray bursts associated with larger black holes in space. I realised that they were the same process.

However, it was only when I went for a walk in the rain and looked up at the sky that I realised something else. Thunderstorms often produce rain. This meant that black holes all over the universe must have an association with water.

I was too nervous at the time to really spell this out as it was so outlandish but logically black holes at all levels MUST create water for the theory to be consistent. I did publish in 2006 that Terrestrial Gamma Ray Flashes are the same process as black holes in space but I didn’t make a big thing about the fact that water would then have to be associated with galactic black holes. Little did I know that within a decade jets of water would be found not only coming out of black holes but from many planets and even from stars.

Logically black holes at all levels MUST create water for the theory to be consistent

In 2013 I travelled to California to deliver a keynote address for the Institute of Noetic Sciences. At the meeting I announced the surprising news that the Black Holes Principle had correctly made predictions about the nature of black holes and water.

I also announced that the due to the Black Hole Principle, all the oceans and seas of planet Earth were not seeded here by a comet or asteroid but are being produced by the Earth’s interior.

Within a few months, the announcement went around the world that there is an ocean below the surface of the Earth and that this is the true source of the water we see around us.

Many people told me that this was a jaw dropping moment for them and pieced it all together. If you want to know what all the fuss is about take a look at this lecture which is only 30 minutes long. The New Scientist article from a few months later is here
