Reconnect 2018
UK Conference
Saturday 7th - Sunday 8th July.  Apex Hotel, Bath

We explored the role of electrical forces in the Universe and how they influence Galaxies and Stars. Our theme was reconnection. We invited people to:

  • reconnect with empirical science
  • reconnect with alternative theories and models of the universe
  • reconnect with historical evidence

The SAFIRE project is currently testing the EU and ES hypothesis in a laboratory in Canada. A key component of the conference was bringing attendees up to date on this exciting project, and looking at how it impacts EU and ES models as well as contemporary astrophysics.

Reconnect 2018
UK Symposium
Tuesday 10th - Wednesday 11th July. Quantock Hills, Somerset

Based at a private venue in the Quantock Hills, this less formal event featured a range of seminars that taught the basics of Electric Universe Theory and introduced other connected subjects.  It was a wonderful two days and that will live long in the memories of those who were there. Thank you to all who made it possible.

 

Our Speakers

Speakers for the Bath Conference are shown below. 

Videos of all talks will be available soon.

  • Wallace Thornhill

    Wallace is an Australian scientist and chief science advisor to the Thunderbolts ProjectTM [www.thunderbolts.info]. He is vice-president of the non-profit U.S. TBolts Group Inc. and has a website [www.holoscience.com] and two books published with David Talbott, titled Thunderbolts of the Gods and The Electric Universe — on the combined subjects of the recent history of the solar system and the electrical nature of the universe.

     

    Wallace is in regular worldwide demand for interviews and presentations. There has been an annual Electric Universe conference in the U.S since 2012. Today, there are more than 100,000 subscribers to the Thunderbolts Project YouTube channel, which recently surpassed 13 million views.

     

    The Thunderbolts ProjectTM is also responsible for initiating a unique plasma experiment to independently test an electrical model of stars. Phase 3 of that experiment is in planning stage in Toronto.

     

    Wallace was awarded a gold medal in 2010 by the European Telesio-Galilei Academy of Science. He presented the Natural Philosophy Alliance (NPA) John Chappell memorial lecture, 'Stars in an Electric Universe' in 2011 at U. Maryland and was awarded the NPA Sagnac Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2013.

     

  • Dr Donald Scott

    Dr. Donald E. Scott is one of the key proponents for the Electric Universe hypothesis and is currently producing some of the defining work on the Electric Sun model.

     

    At the start of his career he worked in industry with General Electric, and then from 1959 to 1998 was a member of the faculty of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Massachusetts, Amherst. In 1987 he authored a 730 page undergraduate-level textbook, An Introduction To Circuit Analysis—A Systems Approach (McGraw-Hill Book Company).

     

    Dr. Scott has delivered papers and presentations at numerous international conferences. In 2006 he published The Electric Sky—A Challenge to the Myths of Modern Astronomy (Mikamar Publishing), which questions the legitimacy of many of the assumptions, hypothetical entities, and forces that are required by presently accepted non-electrical, gravity-only-based theories in astrophysics. In 2009 he presented an invited seminar on Plasma Cosmology to engineers, and astrophysicists at NASA’s Goddard Space Center, Greenbelt, MD.

     

    Dr. Scott is a key member of the consulting team for the SAFIRE PROJECT. His own website can be visited here.

     

  • Montgomery Childs

    Montgomery Childs is the principal scientist for The SAFIRE Project. He has an extensive background in scientific research and experimental development with mechanical design engineering, applied physics and statistical design of experiments methodologies as core disciplines.

     

    Mr. Childs has authored two college books on programming and was the lead design engineer working through the Canadian National Research Council to construct a rocket to measure for oxygen in the Earth's upper atmosphere. He has collaborated with and developed projects for General Motors, Toyota, Westinghouse, Dana, Ford, Magna International, BMW, Orion and many others. He has over 12 commercially viable patents and co-authored a peer reviewed published paper on Plasma Striations and Double Layers.

     

     

     

  • Dr Michael Clarage

    Dr Michael Clarage is the lead astrophysicist for the SAFIRE project. Dr Clarage received his PhD in physics from Brandeis University, studying the biological and statistical behavior of proteins. His work on use of X-Ray crystallography to study movements of proteins was published in Nature magazine.

     

    He worked as an experimentalist at the Arecibo radio telescope studying binary pulsars, supernova, and the interstellar medium. His work also includes discoveries in the areas of fractional calculus and chaotic systems. His lectures have shown many new ways to understand relativity and dimensions, transformation in biological systems, and how our understanding of the interstellar medium is changing.

     

    Dr Clarage’s role in the SAFIRE Project is connecting data from NASA/ESA satellite and telescopes to both laboratory experiments and to new astrophysical models.

  • Piers Corbyn

    Piers Corbyn began recording weather and climate patterns at the age of five, constructing his own observation equipment. He obtained a first-class honours degree in physics at Imperial College London. In 1969, he became the first president of the Imperial College Students’ Union to be directly elected by the student body.

     

    He later studied astrophysics in 1979 at Queen Mary College, London, and then began examining the relationship between Earth’s weather and climate and solar activity.

  • Dr Jeremy Dunning-Davies

    Jeremy Dunning-Davies graduated with a B.Sc. in mathematics in 1962 from the University of Liverpool and obtained a Postgraduate Certificate in Education in 1963.  He was awarded his Ph.D. from the University of Wales in 1966 for a thesis entitled, "The Ideal Relativistic Quantum Gas". In the same year he took up an appointment in applied mathematics at the University of Hull, where he became a senior lecturer in 1981.  He moved as a senior lecturer to the physics department of Hull University in 2002, before retiring in 2008.

     

    In 1987 he met Bernard Lavenda from Camerino at a conference and a highly successful research collaboration ensued into the probabilistic foundations of thermodynamics.  This led them on to investigate and question some of the results associated with the thermodynamics of black holes. He then began a fruitful collaboration with George Cole in Hull on a wide variety of problems, largely in astrophysics and cosmology. In 1996, at a conference in London, he met Ruggero Santilli from Florida and a new interest in new clean energies and the safe disposal of nuclear waste surfaced.

     

    He has produced well in excess of two-hundred academic articles and his various books include: Mathematical Methods for Mathematicians, Physical Scientists and Engineers; Concise Thermodynamics; Exploding a Myth; Neo-Newtonian Mechanics with Extension to Relativistic Velocities vols. I & II, co-authored with Dennis P. Allen Jr.; The Informational Magnecule, Beyond the Veil and Truth in Paradigm, all three co-authored with Richard Norman.   In all this, his interests have ranged from thermodynamics to the properties of the ideal relativistic quantum gasses which, in turn, led to an interest in white dwarf stars and, eventually, astrophysics and cosmology.  Also, he has been deeply involved with, and interested in, educational issues, something which is not too surprising for someone whose father was an eminently successful primary school headmaster in South Wales and whose mother and wife were both teachers.

     

  • Adrian Gilbert

    Adrian Gilbert was born in 1949. Always with an interest in science, he read Chemistry at the University of Kent (1868-71) before embarking on a career mostly in publishing but also as a Computer Analyst-Programmer. In 1990 he set up his own publishing house, Solos Press, which led to his meeting Robert Bauval. Together they wrote the number one  best-seller The Orion Mystery which presented a comprehensive thesis for believing that the Great Pyramids of Giza were laid out to represent the star-group forming Orion's Belt. To date Gilbert has written nearly a dozen books including other best-sellers such as The Mayan Prophecies, Magi, Signs in the Sky and The Holy Kingdom.

     

    Adrian has been following the Electric Universe paradigm with increasing interest since this Millennium began. Recognising that Europe was being left behind in this new, scientific endeavour, in the summer of 2017 he formulated the idea that an Electric Universe Conference should be held in the UK. In partnership with Lucy Wyatt (who more than anyone has made it possible to manifest this idea) he has organised the Electric Universe UK 2018 Conference.

     

     

     

  • Edwin Kaal

    Edo Kaal has studied fundamental and environmental chemistry most of his life.  After working in the IT sector for 10 years, he began an independent research effort. His journey of discovery led him to revise the atomic structure.  He has always had a passion for the expressions in nature and a fascination for science whereby the elements have always been of special interest and attraction.

     

    At the EU2016 conference, Edo presented his re-envisioned atomic structure for the first time in the Breakout Room and at the EU2017 conference he presented SAM at the main-stage. Currently, his attention goes towards further developing SAM and the study of transmutations using the model.  He and James Sorensen created Ethereal Matters, LLC, a foundation for fundamental research. He resides in the Netherlands.

  • Dr Patrick MacMannaway

    Patrick has a degree in Medicine from Edinburgh University. These days he works more closely with 'healing' the land rather than people. He has an international clientele in both America and Australia, many of whom are large-scale agricultural producers who seek his advice on how to collaborate with the forces of Nature for the benefit of all.

  • Rupert Sheldrake

    Rupert Sheldrake is a biologist and author of more than 80 scientific papers and ten books. He was among the top 100 Global Thought Leaders for 2013, as ranked by the Duttweiler Institute, Zurich, Switzerland's leading think tank.

     

    He studied natural sciences at Cambridge University, where he was a Scholar of Clare College, took a double first class honours degree and was awarded the University Botany Prize (1963). He then studied philosophy and history of science at Harvard University, where he was a Frank Knox Fellow (1963-64), before returning to Cambridge, where he took a Ph.D. in biochemistry (1967).

  • Prof. Robert Temple

     

    Professor Robert Temple is author of a dozen challenging and provocative books, commencing with the international best-seller, The Sirius Mystery. His books have been translated into a total of 44 foreign languages. He combines solid academic scholarship with an ability to communicate with the mass public. He is Visiting Professor of the History and Philosophy of Science at Tsinghua University in Beijing, and previously held a similar position at an American university.

     

    For many years he was a science writer for the Sunday Times, the Guardian, and a science reporter for Time-Life, as well as a frequent reviewer for Nature and profile writer for The New Scientist. He is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, and has been a member of the Egypt Exploration Society since the 1970s, as well as a member of numerous other academic societies.

     

  • Ian Tresman

    Ian Tresman is a lateral-thinking scientist and secondary school teacher, with an interest in the scientific method and the Plasma and Electric Universes. He has university certificates in astronomy and cosmology, and has briefly carried out remote research at Jodrell Bank Radio telescope while attaining a certificate in radio astronomy.

     

    He is a member of the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies, author of the Plasma Universe Calendar, editor/compiler of the SIS Internet Digest, editor of the Alfred de Grazia Festschrift Quantavolution: Challenges to Conventional Science (2011), editor/compiler of Catastrophism! Man, Myth and Mayhem in Ancient History and the Sciences (online and CDRom). He has degrees in chemistry and computer science.

     

  • Lucy Wyatt

    Lucy  comes from Cambridge, and a long line of academic ancestors. She, however, took a different path and went to Sussex University, leaving with an MA in European Studies.

     

    In 2010 she published her book Approaching Chaos – could an ancient archetype save 21st century civilisation? She has long been interested in how the ancients were aware of electrical phenomena and how the amazing civilisations of the past – Egyptian, Mayan and others - may have even been able to manipulate such forces for their own benefit.

     

    As well as co-organising the rest of the event, Lucy will be hosting the symposium in the Quantock Hills.

  • Dr Michael Clarage

    Dr Michael Clarage is the lead astrophysicist for the SAFIRE project. Dr Clarage received his PhD in physics from Brandeis University, studying the biological and statistical behavior of proteins. His work on use of X-Ray crystallography to study movements of proteins was published in Nature magazine.

     

    He worked as an experimentalist at the Arecibo radio telescope studying binary pulsars, supernova, and the interstellar medium. His work also includes discoveries in the areas of fractional calculus and chaotic systems. His lectures have shown many new ways to understand relativity and dimensions, transformation in biological systems, and how our understanding of the interstellar medium is changing.

     

    Dr Clarage’s role in the SAFIRE Project is connecting data from NASA/ESA satellite and telescopes to both laboratory experiments and to new astrophysical models.

  • Dr Jeremy Dunning-Davies

    Dr Jeremy Dunning-Davies graduated with a B.Sc. in mathematics in 1962 from the University of Liverpool and obtained a Postgraduate Certificate in Education in 1963.  He was awarded his Ph.D. from the University of Wales in 1966 for a thesis entitled, "The Ideal Relativistic Quantum Gas". In the same year he took up an appointment in applied mathematics at the University of Hull, where he became a senior lecturer in 1981.  He moved as a senior lecturer to the physics department of Hull University in 2002, before retiring in 2008.

     

    In 1987 he met Bernard Lavenda from Camerino at a conference and a highly successful research collaboration ensued into the probabilistic foundations of thermodynamics.  This led them on to investigate and question some of the results associated with the thermodynamics of black holes. He then began a fruitful collaboration with George Cole in Hull on a wide variety of problems, largely in astrophysics and cosmology. In 1996, at a conference in London, he met Ruggero Santilli from Florida and a new interest in new clean energies and the safe disposal of nuclear waste surfaced.

     

    He has produced well in excess of two-hundred academic articles and his various books include: Mathematical Methods for Mathematicians, Physical Scientists and Engineers; Concise Thermodynamics; Exploding a Myth; Neo-Newtonian Mechanics with Extension to Relativistic Velocities vols. I & II, co-authored with Dennis P. Allen Jr.; The Informational Magnecule, Beyond the Veil and Truth in Paradigm, all three co-authored with Richard Norman.   In all this, his interests have ranged from thermodynamics to the properties of the ideal relativistic quantum gasses which, in turn, led to an interest in white dwarf stars and, eventually, astrophysics and cosmology.  Also, he has been deeply involved with, and interested in, educational issues, something which is not too surprising for someone whose father was an eminently successful primary school headmaster in South Wales and whose mother and wife were both teachers.

     

  • Edwin Kaal

     

    Edo Kaal has studied fundamental and environmental chemistry most of his life.  After working in the IT sector for 10 years, he began an independent research effort. His journey of discovery led him to revise the atomic structure.  He has always had a passion for the expressions in nature and a fascination for science whereby the elements have always been of special interest and attraction.

     

    At the EU2016 conference, Edo presented his re-envisioned atomic structure for the first time in the Breakout Room and at the EU2017 conference he presented SAM at the main-stage. Currently, his attention goes towards further developing SAM and the study of transmutations using the model.  He and James Sorensen created Ethereal Matters, LLC, a foundation for fundamental research. He resides in the Netherlands.

  • Adrian Gilbert

     

    Adrian Gilbert was born in 1949. Always with an interest in science, he read Chemistry at the University of Kent (1868-71) before embarking on a career mostly in publishing but also as a Computer Analyst-Programmer. In 1990 he set up his own publishing house, Solos Press, which led to his meeting Robert Bauval. Together they wrote the number one  best-seller The Orion Mystery which presented a comprehensive thesis for believing that the Great Pyramids of Giza were laid out to represent the star-group forming Orion's Belt. To date Gilbert has written nearly a dozen books including other best-sellers such as The Mayan Prophecies, Magi, Signs in the Sky and The Holy Kingdom.

     

    Adrian has been following the Electric Universe paradigm with increasing interest since this Millennium began. Recognising that Europe was being left behind in this new, scientific endeavour, in the summer of 2017 he formulated the idea that an Electric Universe Conference should be held in the UK. In partnership with Lucy Wyatt (who more than anyone has made it possible to manifest this idea) he has organised the Electric Universe UK 2018 Conference.

  • Dr Patrick MacMannaway

    Patrick has a degree in Medicine from Edinburgh University. These days he works more closely with 'healing' the land rather than people. He has an international clientele in both America and Australia, many of whom are large-scale agricultural producers who seek his advice on how to collaborate with the forces of Nature for the benefit of all.

  • Rupert Sheldrake

     

    Rupert Sheldrake is a biologist and author of more than 80 scientific papers and ten books. He was among the top 100 Global Thought Leaders for 2013, as ranked by the Duttweiler Institute, Zurich, Switzerland's leading think tank.

     

    He studied natural sciences at Cambridge University, where he was a Scholar of Clare College, took a double first class honours degree and was awarded the University Botany Prize (1963). He then studied philosophy and history of science at Harvard University, where he was a Frank Knox Fellow (1963-64), before returning to Cambridge, where he took a Ph.D. in biochemistry (1967).

  • Prof. Robert Temple

    He is a member of the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies, author of the Plasma Universe Calendar, editor/compiler of the SIS Internet Digest, editor of the Alfred de Grazia Festschrift Quantavolution: Challenges to Conventional Science (2011), editor/compiler of Catastrophism! Man, Myth and Mayhem in Ancient History and the Sciences (online and CDRom). He has degrees in chemistry and computer science.

     

  • Lucy Wyatt

    Lucy  comes from Cambridge, and a long line of academic ancestors. She, however, took a different path and went to Sussex University, leaving with an MA in European Studies.

     

    In 2010 she published her book Approaching Chaos – could an ancient archetype save 21st century civilisation? She has long been interested in how the ancients were aware of electrical phenomena and how the amazing civilisations of the past – Egyptian, Mayan and others - may have even been able to manipulate such forces for their own benefit.

     

    As well as co-organising the rest of the event, Lucy will be hosting the symposium in the Quantock Hills.

  • Piers Corbyn

    Piers Corbyn began recording weather and climate patterns at the age of five, constructing his own observation equipment. He obtained a first-class honours degree in physics at Imperial College London. In 1969, he became the first president of the Imperial College Students’ Union to be directly elected by the student body.

     

    He later studied astrophysics in 1979 at Queen Mary College, London, and then began examining the relationship between Earth’s weather and climate and solar activity.
