Wayland Smithey - Neolithic chambered long barrow - wet & windy walk in the wilderness



Mrs Philbin accompanied me on a wet & windy walk today from Longcot to Wayland Smithey, a Neolithic chambered long barrow; actually the site of TWO long barrows, one built on top of the other, as these ancient sites often are. We had a lovely picnic in the entrance to St Swithun's church in Compton Beauchamp, while the rain tipped down outside. Funny that I got a whiff of incense even before we got to the church, or knew it was sited there, like it was calling to us.




More than anything this 'pilgrimage' had been something I'd promised a dear friend r.i.p. before she passed away and I paid my respects to her and to the memory of a dream I'd had of finally getting to the site. Great day out for all these reasons.



Special thanks to one charitable residence of Longcot who shared two buckets of apples from their tree in the front garden... we spotted them on the way out and harvested them on the way back to the bus stop. Sixteen decent-sized examples of wind fall, soon to be puree and pies and crumbles and...

The UK is very lucky to have so many awesome neolithic sites to visit and study.

Indeed, as are the western/Atlantic coast of France, Spain and Portugal... I suspect these ancient monuments show a Druidic empire that stretches all the way back to (and may have formed) Ancient Egypt.

Wallace Thornhill - The A-Z of Electric Universe - forthcoming new book...

eleven years ago, (American mythologist) David Talbott and (Australian scientist) Wallace Thornhill brought out their seminal and eponymous book on the Electric Universe.

The thing about Wal and David's co-authored EU-book is it drew together mythology and science in a totally unique way that (iff valid-ified) will TOTALLY REWRITE how Science looks at fundamental issues like The Age of the Solar System, how it was formed, and what our Alien Sky might have looked like to early man - with illustrations peppered throughout written/carved history to back it up.
I just got word from Wal that (while this 2007-published book won't be updated for a more Electric Universe-friendly audience/academic community) he is working on a new book he's tentatively titled THE A-Z OF ELECTRIC UNIVERSE.

Excited as me? Not even possible, my friend....

Electric Universe - charge exchange reaction - outer planets of the solar system

Prior to starting today's blog, I'd like to note that, "Iff electric boundary layers in plasma sheaths of these star-forming Birkeland Currents actually exist," then it safely demonstrates how and where planets orbit their star. Plasma sheath layers = orbits, and should become more off-plane as the outer planets are allowed to orbit a 'fatter' orbit potential in the solar polar vector.

Q: can large electric fields power Jupiter's super-massive auroras?



...of the seven episodes out of a planned 'ten reasons the universe is electric' this might be the most important one yet... it really makes the case for An Electric Universe that modern science is SIMPLY IGNORING... at the moment.

Time to watch, again or for the first time,  David Talbott's 2013 lecture Exposing the Myths of Settled Science.

art - mike philbin - black, black, paint it black...

yeah, I know, "Black's the new black," all over again. Swings and roundabouts. Once more round the sun, dear art friends.

But here's what started it.


And here's the most recent Black'd Work, with the addition of metallic silver conversing with metallic gold.
