Thunderbolts.info is always a bountiful source of paradigm-challenging ideas.
Some of their speculations may be off (especially any specific dates left behind by their Godfather, Velikovsky), but some of their predictions have been borne out, and they provide a more dynamic, even (mytho-)poetic, picture of the universe than the standard, rather dry, gravity-driven model that dominates astrophysics.

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.
