The Forgotten Force

A seemingly weak magnetic entity could have made all the difference in our universe’s evolution

Earth is held in its orbit around the Sun, like other planets around their own stars. Stars themselves are held in galaxies by larger, more massive objects like the supermassive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way. Behind all of this, the glue that holds galaxies together, is the force of gravity.

Yet, gravity is not the only force that matters when it comes to the structure of galaxies and the space between them. For years, the interstellar magnetic fields were thought to be so weak they made no difference to how our galaxy evolved. However, research is increasingly showing that magnetic fields in galaxies are important to the way space is shaped. They have become a forgotten force that brings countless mysteries – and problems – just waiting to be solved.

  1. There is a new theory that the 30 million light years long DNA nebula is not a magnetic pull on a rope or rubber band gravitation twist but a single object’s appearance from infinite wisdom that resembles our DNA with telomeres on both ends. This 80 light years long object could be the source of our universe and no matter. With the passage of the all-encompassing Cosmic Background Radiation passing through 304,805 letters, creates the appearance of the universe, matter, energy, gravitation, and our free will lives. A theoretical ‘black hole” some 300 light years away supposedly caused this one of a kind formation. The resultant signals then pass through individual consciousness’ (unknown to finite finds) resulting in our shortly experienced lives on what we call earth. These 304,805 letters would correspond to the four letters found in our own life necessities in DNA (cytosine, guanine, adenine, and thymine). Like “Occam’s razor'”, no need for the complexity of mathematics or formulas beyond comprehension. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, “when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains must be the truth.

    With our finite minds, only infinite minds may understand.
