Halton Arp on Intrinsic Redshift (1:00:16)
Redshift is commonly thought to arise from recessional accelleration and is used to measure the distance of galaxies, yet some quasars with high redshift values seem to be physically connected to lower-redshift galaxies, which begs the question: do we really understand what causes redshift? Halton "Chip" Arp was an American astronomer known for his Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies. Arp was also a critic of the Big Bang theory, advocating a non-standard cosmology incorporating intrinsic redshift as a measure of age rather than distance.
Lee Smolin, a theoretical physicist at the Perimeter Institute in Ontario explains why traditional way of thinking about time cannot explain how the universe works. The "laws of nature" must themselves have evolved, rather than being transcendent truths outside space and time.
The Fourth Phase of Water (24:14)
Water has a fourth phase beyond solid, liquid and vapor. It also exists in a kind of liquid crystal phase, with remarkable properties and implications for new technologies.
EU proponent Wal Thornhill offers a comprehensive review of recent data connecting the Sun to its cosmic environment highlighting the most critical oversight of standard solar physics for a hundred years or more.
Symbols of an Alien Sky (1:18:25)
Based on comparative mythology and plasma physics, David Talbott describes the Electric Universe theory of the solar system as it was just a few thousand years ago, when a gathering of planets hung as towering forms in the ancient sky close to the earth, provoking spectacular electric discharges. Inspired by Immanuel Velikovsky, David Talbott's discoveries of consistent themes in myths, ancient petroglyphs, and cave paintings from across the world are corroborated by the plasma physicist Anthony Peratt's laboratory experiments and by the work of physicist Wal Thornhill.
