The Electric Universe's Effect on Comets & Planets

Comparative mythologist Dave Talbott ( & physicist specializing in plasma and electricity in space, Wallace Thornhill discussed the nature of the electric universe and its effect on comets and planets. The recent discharging of Comet Holmes, in which it became one million times brighter, is evidence of electric phenomena— the theory of an icy comet evaporating in the sun's path doesn't fit this model, said Thornhill.

The ancients bore witness to dramatic events in the sky, stated Talbott-- the sphere of Venus radiated with plasma discharge filaments that engaged with Mars in various ways. During this period, Mars was closer to Earth and took up a 20 degree arc in the sky, such that the balance of night and daytime was altered, he said, adding that ancients such as the Egyptians depicted this event with imagery like the cosmic serpent.

Thornhill suggested that the planet Saturn was actually a captured brown dwarf star and that at one time Earth was in its cometary sheath. He's also been able to make correct predictions based on the electrical model, including identifying Titan's atmosphere and noting there would be a flash before the main flash in Deep Impact's interaction with comet Tempel 1.


Wallace Thornhill is an Australian physicist. His lifelong investigation of "The Electric Universe" offers a revolutionary view of solar system history, the nature of the Sun, the behavior of comets, and stellar and galactic evolution. He is the co-author, with David Talbott, of Thunderbolts of the Gods and The Electric Universe. The latter will be available on June 1, 2007 


David Talbott is a comparative mythologist whose work offers a radical new vantage point on the origin of ancient cultural themes and symbols. His research has been the primary catalyst behind the "Saturn Model," and is the subject of the feature documentary, "Remembering the End of the World." He is the author of The Saturn Myth and co-author (with Wallace Thornhill) of Thunderbolts of the Gods. 

David N. Talbott (born 1942) is an American author and inveterate promoter of neo-Velikovskian ideas. Inspired by Immanuel Velikovsky, he proposes a "Polar Configuration" involving the five planets, Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Mars, Earth, in order, and its influence on the human mythology 


Talbott received his B.S. from Portland State University, where he majored in education and political science. He also completed a year of graduate work in Urban Studies. He was the co-founder and publisher (with his brother Stephen L. Talbott as editor) of the journal Pensée produced by the Student Academic Freedom Forum in Portland, Oregon, which between 1972 and 1974 published a ten-issue series, Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered, achieving a circulation of between 10,000 and 20,000 subscribers.

He is the author of several books related to comparative mythology and alternative histories of the solar system, including The Saturn Myth. In 1987 he founded the journal Aeon, where many of his works are self-published. In 1991, despairing of ever finding a physical solution to the "Polar Configuration", Talbott abdicated his life's work for eighteen months. The sabbatical ended when he was shown a tantalizing model which, according to his interview in the documentary Remembering the End of the World, "wasn't a complete answer; but it gave me confidence that the dynamical issues could be resolved." Talbott returned to the staff of Aeon in May 1994. In November 1997 he became the founding president of The Mind Exploration Corporation whose mission is "to identify, investigate and market groundbreaking discoveries on the frontiers of science, technology and human understanding" that follow from the dual concepts of the "Polar Configuration" and the "Electric Universe". In early 1999, he announced a relationship with Atlantis Rising magazine "to develop up to eight pages for each issue." He was an invited speaker as "scientist and author" at the "Earth Changes 2000" Conference, Sept. 8-10, in Emigrant, Montana, sponsored by Atlantis Rising and Ancient American magazines where he "use[d] computer animation to argue that the ancients witnessed the catastrophic collision of planetary bodies including Earth and left the record in myths and legends." At present, Talbott is the owner of the Kronia Group which markets videos, CDs, books, and journals concerning the "Saturn Model" and the "Electric Universe" and which sponsored the seminar "Our Violent Solar System", September 20--22, 2000, in Portland, Oregon and the international conference "Intersect 2001: Electricity, Catastrophe, and Human History" in Laughlin, Nevada
