How does the Sun distribute energy throughout the heliosphere–the bubble containing the solar system and everything in it?

The Bubble

A clue is found in a vacuum tube; more specifically, it is found in the cathode ray tube. This tube, abbreviated CRT, was the mainstay of desktop computer monitors for many years. In it, we have a heater that raises the temperature of a cathode to a point at which it gives off electrons in great quantities. These electrons are negative in nature. High positive voltages are supplied to various grids and anodes in the tube (see illustration).


There are two types of electricity: positive and negative. The electron is negative and its counterpart, the proton is positive. Just as the north pole of a magnet will attract the south pole of another magnet, the electrons attract protons. Similar poles of magnets repel each other and so do similar charges of electricity. Likes repel; unlikes attract.

The high positive voltages on the grids and anodes of the CRT attract the electrons from the cathode. The electrons are pulled toward the anodes with great speed, but, due to the type of construction of these anodes, most electrons rush right on through toward the next one. Theoretically, this could be continued for great distances by the use of several different anodes and high positive voltages.

Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars are close enough to the Sun to get good radiation. With the planets beyond Mars, it is a different situation. At these distances, the Sun’s radiation has started to diminish. At this time it comes under the influence of the tremendous attracting force generated by the first anode, the main asteroid belt which totally envelops the central portion of our solar system. The negative charge of the asteroid belt is great enough to attract the particles from the Sun and pull them back up to their original speed. Because this belt is grid-like in construction, with thousands of openings and paths, similar to a window screen with air going through it, the particles dash on through and inter the influence of the planets beyond.

These, being negative in themselves, as all planets are, attract from space the positive particles they need for light and heat. At the same time, infinite numbers of similar particles rush on past and are attracted by the second anode, the Kuiper belt between Neptune and Pluto, where the process is repeated all over again. This furnishes Pluto and any undiscovered planets with normal light and heat.

The third anode (the Oort Cloud) is well beyond all known planets, serving a dual purpose of blending space within our system with that of neighboring systems. At the same time, it serves as a protective filter, comparable to the ionosphere encompassing a planet.

We might summarize by saying: The two inner asteroid belts gather rays from the Sun and speed them on through space. They equalize, so to speak, conditions within the system from the area of Mercury right on to the outer reaches of our solar system, while the third keeps our system, as a unit, in balance with those beyond.

With the asteroid belt, basically negative in nature, attracting Sun rays varying in length, speed, with, and charge, a condition is set into action comparable to an alternating current in electricity. Some of the positive particles are trapped within the asteroid belt, while others zip right on through to radiate through space beyond.

The law of attraction and repulsion permits a state of cohesion to take place between some of the particles within the belt, building larger forms, while a major percentage remain in their natural state. Particles of many sizes thus created are caused to constantly act on one another in energy and matter alike. This very action, while building some forms, also disintegrates other forms by separating the particles of which they are composed.
