Errata, A Big Quasi-Mystical Theory, and Short Takes
Plasma, the rainbow body, the noosphere, continued
I wanted to correct a few errors in my last piece. In the initial email, I wrote Queen Elizabeth II’s brother had abdicated the throne, when I meant her uncle. Also, the double rainbow above Buckingham Palace appeared before the public announcement of her death, not afterward. This makes it even more synchronous.
I also learned that the same phenomenon of a double rainbow had occurred around the time of David Bowie’s death on January 10, 2016, over the skyline of Manhattan, where he lived. Apparently, double rainbows have a penchant for iconic British figures.
In the comments, Guy James noted the recent appearance of these very rare iridescent pileus clouds, looking like rainbow rings, in China and Florida. There seems to be more and more visual evidence of rare atmospheric phenomena, such as halos around the Sun, which I have seen many times in strangely psychically charged circumstances. (I am curious about your experiences, write in comments)
I wish I had enough knowledge of plasma to reckon with some of Jose Arguelles’ theories around the noosphere, magnetosphere, and ionosphere. I quoted this, from Time and the Technosphere, last time:
Since 1987 great influxes of plasma into the solar system have intensified the incidence of spectral plasmic activity within the atmosphere itself. This amounts to an increase in rainbows, halos around the sun, and brilliantly colored clouds. While these phenomena may be explained to a certain degree as meteorological effects (the angle of the sun's rays, moisture in the atmosphere, and so on), is there more to a rainbow than meteorological side effects? And what relation is there between the noosphere, the electro-magnetic field, and the increased plasmic-rainbow activity?
I researched this years ago, but I have forgotten some of the finer points. I would love to hear from people with deeper scientific background in the comments.
For fun, here is a basic outline of a quasi-scientific/quasi-mystical hypothesis: The Sun is a vast living intelligence that intentionally evolves consciousness on Earth through solar radiation and solar flares, which unleash massive amounts of plasma into the Earth’s atmosphere, accelerating the development of organic life. Gregor Sams explored the theory that the Sun is a vast super-consciousness in his book, Sun of gOd: Discover the Self-Organizing Consciousness that Underlies Everything. According to Sams, ancient cultures worshipped the Sun because they had an innate, accurate understanding of this.
We are still learning about the very complex relationship between the Earth and Sun.
