Danny Vendramini - Planet of the Neanderthals - profile of a super predator

here's a very interesting video concerning Danny Vendramini's book Them and Us (how Neanderthal predation created Modern Humans). Danny's bold and brave claim is that Neanderthals were horrible nightmarish monsters that hunted and devoured puny humans. Their large eyes suggest that most of this might have been done nocturnally i.e. at night, nightmarish indeed...

Once the traditional anthropomorphic approach is put aside, and it is acknowledged that human physiology and behaviour are a one-off case, Neanderthal physiology can be seen in its correct evolutionary context. 
Neanderthals evolved from the same ancestors as gorillas, chimps and bonobos, who still look like classic primates after ten million years of evolution. Neanderthals almost certainly were not hairless or artistic. They didn’t have Angelina Jolie lips, or clear white eyes, or even satin-smooth skin. 
A more realistic Darwinian view argues that, unless powerful and persistent evolutionary forces rendered it absolutely necessary for survival to abandon their ancestral primate appearance, Neanderthals would have continued to look like tall, bipedal apes. After all, the core aspects of primate physiology had been tried, tested and continually refined by
natural selection over at least ten million years.
 
I’ve nominated two major factors that caused Neanderthal physiology to diverge from primate orthodoxy: their predator lifestyle (including nocturnality) and the icy European climate they evolved in. In all other respects, the ancestral form would tend to prevail. [source THEMANDUS]

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.
