Ah, yes. Wal Thornhill. I know of him and David Talbot through my brother who has met them both here in the U.S. in the time before the Covid® crime.

Here is a quick, seven-minute video with Talbott narrating: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWLg4QEo574 I love how Talbott, et.al., bring in ancient cultures and evidence that these people described plasma discharges via their art/cave drawings, etc. Absolutely fascinating!

Would it be too much of a stretch to think that maybe -- just maybe -- part of the global lockdown also intended to stall or end projects on the verge of blowing up key parts of our current paradigm of b*llsh*t like the Safire Project https://safireproject.com/ ? Yeah, probably...but that's what happened. Funny that.

A couple of great lines among so many from Liam:

"It might even turn out that our star is far more influential in creating large-scale heating and cooling patterns, than is our excess CO2." (Define "excess" CO2.) And,

"The answer is, it's not a campfire. It's plasma.." (I love this one.)

I've so much to say, I'm almost speechless.

Suffice it to say, I'm upset that it's taken 60 years for me to be exposed to this man's perspective, which it just so happens, confirms ideas I've had from an early age that failed to be nurtured as a result.

I know I should be grateful the stars aligned, you posted this and I decided to read it, and I am.

I write so poorly I wish I could have a conversation with someone who understands to get what's in my head out.

Thanks.

Why not give Amazon a pass and buy the book at Abebooks.com? I did. No affiliation, I just like my books and everything else from non-Amazon companies.

Thought-provoking stuff! And isn't that the key thing? Something that makes us wonder rather than accepting all the pat, dry-as-dust explanations for the universe that keep us 'comfortably numb'? Isn't the prime motivating force for human enquiry *mystery* itself, that sense of the unknown and perhaps unknowable, just out of reach? The powers-that-be seem determined to demystify our existence to a dull, materialistic greyness that keeps us passive and helpless. Interesting background on Abbé Lemaitre too: I've long thought that the Catholic Church has yet to realise that demystifying its central sacred mysteries will lead to its own extinction. Or maybe it's all part of the plan?

"Both are “invisible.” Both can only be detected by inference, “indirectly.” Both exist to fill in the holes left by Big Bang theory’s gravity-only edict. Add a little electricity to the model and the “darkness” goes away." your introductory joke a perfect parody of this. Bravo.

What a wonderful introduction to the electrical universe! When I took cosmology as an undergrad the official story on the universe gave me a deep sense of unease and anxiety. At the time I thought it was because of how small and insignificant it made human life feel. After reading this I realize I was intuitively recoiling from an explanation that completely disregards the reality of an intelligent, organized and yes, creative universe with patterns that repeat on all scales. The universe feels a bit warmer thanks to this fantastic essay. Thank you for sharing!

Loved it! No deeper comment after such work-out for my mind. Thank you :-))

Thanks to you, I ordered his book and read it in three days. Good and though-provoking stuff. I am baffled that I'd not heard of Liam Scheff before someone from somewhere else linked to your Shakespeare post. Seriously. I've been a subscriber to the Corbett Report since late 2015 and scouring his site, there's no mention of Scheff anywhere, which is really odd taking into consideration (via his super brief bio on the book cover) that he started JoyCamp (?) with others among whom is Benny Wills who's been featured numerous times on Corbett's site! What's with that?!

So, I looked for more information on him and found his "Last Post" to his readers describing the debilitating nerve damage resulting from a dentist! which ultimately killed him, slowly and most painfully (I can't help but wonder if he was taken out by TPTB). Heartbreaking.

This chapter, together with the expanding earth and Shakespeare, were the most "fun" (the Vaccine and AIDs chapters were emotionally taxing but very enlightening). I'm about to do the deep-dive on this electric universe information. Again, thank you for introducing him.

On thing I'd like to offer in contrast to Scheff's portrayal of the Christian perspective: there are as many confliciting opinions as there are ice cream flavors - Uniformitarianism is just one (even the apostle Peter had something to say about that - see 2 Peter 3). But back to Liam: in his chapter on the expanding earth, he regrettably failed to even mention a theory which is supported by mind-blowing evidence. Dare I say it? A global flood.

Early 90s I serendipitously stumbled on a truly fascinating exploration on the whole Darwinian Evolution vs Young Earth Creation debate and, being a product of public school with no religous background whatsoever, I was amazed. Years later, I learned of a man named Walt Brown who put forth his "hydroplate theory" which, for me, answers a lot of geological mysteries ("continental drift", frozen mammoths, fossils, asteroids, as well as a host of others). His book is very interesting which is available to read, for free, on-line. The chapter featuring the hydroplate theory (10 min video also available on youtube) is worth perusing and contemplating along with the theories supported by Scheff:

I’ve never understood how anyone could believe this much order could have come from an explosion. I’ve never seen any order come from any explosion. It’s like declaring that we

sometimes build homes by laying dynamite in a rectangle. Viola! Call HGTV.

If I opened my dryer to find even half the socks matched and yoga pants folded, I’d sell tickets to view the laundry.

It takes a lot of faith to believe that something came of nothing but for me, it takes far more to believe that order came from a bang. The tides, the solar system, sea life, infants, all the

things… I don’t think a big bang could create a sweater, never mind a foal.

Liam was definitely ahead of the curve. I'm glad I'm not the only person to appreciate his legacy.

Astonishing. This really upended my indoctrinated schooling and with Liam's wonderful humor about it all. Thanks for posting.

In keeping with the electric universe, life on earth is also electric. I highly recommend the free 44 page PDF book "Sacred Mission" by Matteo Tavera, originally published in France in 1969.

https://www.electrocultureandmagnetoculture.com/uploads/3/4/1/3/3413602/matteo_tavera_-_sacred_mission.pdf

Mr. Tavera was a farmer, naturalist and economist. You could classify the book as either natural philosophy or meta-physics. Either way, everything in the book meshes perfectly with the electrical forces and energy flows described in Liam Scheff's chapter on electricity. After reading Sacred Mission, I look at nature with more wonderment than ever before.

"It’s clear to me that the universe is creative, alive and thinking. After all, it forms itself into us and everything else that exists. (If you think it's all a grand accident, there's a Richard Dawkins book on the shelf waiting for you.)" you missed the opportunity to tap this phrase into the "intelligent design" article!

I've been a fan of Charles Eisenstein for decades and his book Sacred Economics is a must-read imho. Some of his essays during the plandemic have been excellent too. His latest is coincidentally very much along the same lines as above essay https://charleseisenstein.substack.com/p/the-sun-is-alive-and-why-that-matters
