But i am not sure if i actually believe in the sun coming so close to destroying our electrions like that though.
A coronal mass ejection or a simple electrical discharge can actually "touch" the Earth. There are even regions on Mars that look like a discharge of some kind had hit it in the distant past.
I had heard of the Thunderbolts Project a few years ago. I must say that I find their premise compelling.
Andrew Hall: Scars of Plasma Dragons
For the last five years, on this series, Thunderbolts colleague Andrew Hall has presented an extraordinary reconstruction of catastrophic events on Earth, exploring the telltale clues these events imprinted on our planet’s surface. As Andy has explained, many of the fractal patterns we see on Earth cannot be explained through any traditional geological process. However, these geological features find intriguing analogues in some of the highest energy atmospheric phenomena seen in our solar system today.
In part one of this two part presentation, Andy presents the seventh installment of his “Eye of the Storm” series with an examination of the remarkable filamentary and dendritic patterns seen on planet Earth — patterns whose explanation may be found in the ancient events that created the cultural memory of a mythical creature, the dragon.
