Question Regarding the Galactic Center's Current Effects
Answering a Question Regarding the Galactic Center's Current Effects on the Sun and Earth
Paul LaViolette (P. L.) attempts to address some questions below.
From an email he received 1/16/06:
P. L.: In the past, I had wondered whether the 11 and 22 year solar cycle may be related to long-period gravity potential fluctuations emanating from the Galactic core. The subquantum kinetics physics theory links gravity potential to genic energy production rate, and hence to solar output. That is, about 10 to 15 percent of the solar output is predicted to be of non-nuclear origin arising from photon energy blueshifting. The energy spontaneously generated through photon blueshifting is what I term genic energy. The rate of photon blueshifting and hence of genic energy production is predicted to correlate with the ambient value of the G potential.
So it is difficult to test this hypothesis. Also the mother star Sgr A* at the center of the Galaxy has a mass of about 4 million solar masses as compared with 10 billion solar masses for the Galaxy's central bulge. So even a large 50% variation in the mass of Sgr A* would produce only a 0.01% change in the local G potential or a change of one part per million in the Sun's G potential (the Sun's G potential being 50 times larger in magnitude than the Galaxy ambient).
I don't deny that there are ongoing gravity potential fluctuations coming from the center of the Galaxy that may affect the Earth. As I mention in Earth Under Fire, in the 1970's Dr. Joseph Weber at the University of Maryland claimed to have detected gravity waves with his gravity wave antenna and claimed that they emanated from the direction of the Galactic center. But his results were not believed by the scientific community. Also Townsend Brown reported changes in electro-gravitic force that had a correlation with the orientation of the zenith to the Galactic center.
