90-years ago Walter Russell introduced to the world his Electric Universe Model.


It has been 90-years since Walter Russell formally introduced his revolutionary cosmological theory of an electric universe—a theory so advanced that its truths proved to be well beyond the grasp of all but the most astute mainstream thinkers. His good friend, Nikola Tesla, had cautioned that he “lock this (Cosmic) knowledge in a safe for 1000-years until man is ready for it.” But Walter’s vision was all consuming and, with the zeal of an evangelist, he carried his message directly to the people (similar to using twitter today).

Within a week of his introduction in a New York Times article, a well-respected scientist, Dr. John E. Jackson, wrote an editorial to the New York Times, refuting everything that Walter Russell had stated in his article a week earlier. Soon other prominent scientists piled on. It wasn’t pretty.

This initial exchange of letters communicated through the New York Times went on through October of 1930. Read the editorial letters here.

Obviously, Tesla had known that for credentialed experts in mainstream science to accept the totality of Russell’s theories would require disavowing virtually everything they had previously learned and taught and that the chance of that happening was virtually nil.

Unfortunately, the same is true today.

But there is hope. Dr. Don Scott, an esteemed Professor, electrical engineer and, the author of The Electric Sun, says “until quite recently most astronomers barely gave electricity in space a sideways glance. And yet, through the back door, we now see a growing interest in the role of magnetism across the cosmos. In the rarefied plasma environment of space, magnetic fields are the proof of active electric currents, even if this proof is ignored. But with surprising rapidity, perhaps in the course of just 15 years, the “magnetic universe” has emerged as a permissible expression within the scientific mainstream. This radical turn may prove to be the most promising bridge to a shift in astrophysical perception, eventually making it impossible to ignore the electric currents without which the “magnetic universe” would disappear.”

Dr. Scott’s message—placing the emphasis on magnetic universe–should resonate with all of us in the Walter Russell community. There are astronomers and physicists out there who want to believe. But, first, they need something to believe in—a proof-of-concept (something incontrovertible).

Success will only come when Russell’s technologies are solving mainstream problems. But curiosity comes before interest. Solving a real, but small, problem, will cause others with similar problems to become curious. That is how it will begin.
