One single, solid, scientific fact can explain the mysteries of life. This one scientific fact can explain the human aura, human emotions, the rise and fall of nations, the widespread practice of religion, natural healing, radionics, dowsing, astrology, haunted houses, and much, much more. It can explain New Age crystals, deja vu, UFO sightings, telepathy, clairvoyance, remote viewing, and most paranormal phenomenon. So what is this single, scientific fact?
That one fact is the earth’s electric field. All living creatures on earth stand in an electric field. Everything we do is done within this electric field. This electric field is created by the voltage on our ionosphere. That voltage is in the neighborhood of 300,000 volts. This is the voltage at the ionosphere. At the surface of the earth, the voltage is zero. Between the earth and the ionosphere, the voltage increases progressively.
At the top of your head, the voltage is approximately 240 to 250 volts [GIA]. That’s a pretty substantial voltage. It is the same voltage as is applied across modern oven elements used for baking. Fortunately for you, this is not a high current source. Otherwise, you would be fried quickly.
Voltages are the pressure that creates the flow of electric currents. The voltage of a flashlight battery is the pressure that creates the current that flows through the flashlight bulb to create light. How much current flows depends upon the resistance in the circuit.
The less resistance, the more current. Think of this as water flowing out of a garden hose. If the hose is straight, the water flows freely. That is a high current. If the hose gets a kink, it has more resistance to the flow and the water may not flow as fast, or may even stop.
The electric field voltage at the top of your head creates a current flow through your body. The current flows through your feet, upwards through your body and out the top of your head. The resistance of your body is approximately one million ohms. This leads to a calculated current flow through your body of about .25 amperes. One ampere is the current drawn by a 100 watt light bulb. So this .25 ampere current is relatively small.
However, this current is much greater than your biological currents. Dr. Robert Becker, in the landmark book, The Body Electric [BEC2], relates his discovery that currents as small as one nanoampere can regenerate the growth of tissue in the human body. One nanoampere is one-trillionth of an ampere. It is very tiny indeed.
If the current through your body due to the earth’s electric field is expressed in nanoamperes, rather than amperes, it would be 250,000 nanoamperes. That means that the external currents are 250,000 times as strong as the currents that run the bioelectric circuits in your body.
This is an astounding fact. It means that our bodies are extremely sensitive to changes in the earth’s electric field. If we assume that our brain can detect current changes as small as one nanoampere, it means our brain can detect very small changes in the earth’s electric field. This is important because it is a solid, scientific fact that the voltage on our ionosphere can change as much as 25 percent in a few hours.
This happens when the energy of a large solar flare hits the earth.
It is the flow of ionized particles off of the sun that creates our ionosphere. This is the source of the electric charges. The sun emits immense amounts of energy. Some of that energy comes to us directly as sunlight, which is visible light. Some of it comes to us as heat, which infrared energy. These are forms of direct radiation. We also receive x-rays from the sun.
The sun also sends us a stream of ionized particles. These particles are carried away from the sun on the solar wind. The solar wind moves at 180,000 miles per hour. As these charged particles approach the earth, they act like water coming out of a fire hydrant. They blast the earth with charged particles. Were it not for our electromagnetic field, this blast of charged particles would strip our atmosphere away from earth.
Scientists believe that that once happened to the planet Mars.
Fortunately for us, our electromagnetic field forms a shield to these particles. It redirects their flow around the earth. The charged particles follow the magnetic lines of flux. Over the equator, these magnetic lines of flux direct the charged particles toward our north and south poles. This redirection causes the formation of the ionosphere.
This layer of charged particles creates the 300,000 volts of the ionosphere, at an altitude of 80 kilometers on the sunlit side of the earth and 320 kilometers on the dark side. As the charged particles flow past the north and south poles, they penetrate into our ionosphere, creating the phenomenon known as Aurora Borealis. These northern or southern lights are the gases in our atmosphere glowing just like the gases in fluorescent light. These huge current flows during one session of northern or southern lights generate more electricity than all the electricity generated by mankind in the history of the earth. These lights are so powerful that they even have been photographed from space.
So our tiny, very sensitive bodies live in an immense sea of electricity. This is not a calm sea. It has tides, and waves, and currents, just like our oceans. Like the air in our atmosphere, this electric field flows and swirls and shifts constantly. This causes the electric current flowing through our bodies to be constantly changing.
We feel these changing currents as emotions. True, some of our emotions are internally generated, but many of them are simply caused by external current flows. Our normal healthy, happy condition results when the currents flow positively from our feet upward through our bodies and out through our heads. This is the normal flow of current from the ground to the ionosphere.
However, currents flow in loops. They need a return path. The return path for currents is provided by thunderstorms. At any given moment, there are 300 to 3,000 thunderstorms occurring on the earth. These storms cause immense currents to flow from the ionosphere to the earth, completing the return pattern.
These are the strong currents that create the awesome power of lightning. Having been extremely close to two lightning strikes, I am acutely aware of the immense energy in a single lightning bolt. One feels it as an immense, frightening, draining current. After the event one feels like they have just had a violent heated argument with their best friend. So our tiny, sensitive, frail bodies are constantly subjected to powerful, sweeping, violent surges of electricity and we have no surge protectors.
This electric sea of the earth’s electric field reveals itself in many observable phenomena. Man has known that “there was something out there.” He has called it ki, chi, the life force, orgone energy, the great spirit, the devil, God, and many other names. But, it is simply, purely, exactly the earth’s electric field. When it is taken into account many unexplained, unsolved mysteries vanish under the bright light of science.
