Explore geo-dynamic processes within and beyond the Earth …
‘Dynamic Earth’ will explore the electrodynamic forces that may affect, shape and form the behaviour and regulation of geo-dynamic processes within and beyond the Earth. We have invited a panel of international scholars from universities and academic institutions to address topics that include gravitation; magnetic field reversals; telluric currents; the electrodynamic nature of water; mass fields; the submicroscopic structure of space and of atoms; experiential consciousness within the physics of the universe and nuanced aspects of the microcosm and macrocosm which relate to this dynamic theme.
The strong focus on terrestrial electro-dynamic processes implicitly includes plasma; 2019 happens to be a landmark year for plasma phenomena, marking the centenary of the life of pioneering physicist Sir William Crookes P.R.S., who discovered this radiant fourth state of matter. 2019 also marks the centenary of the seminal publication on The Arrangement of Electrons in Atoms and Molecules by Irving Langmuir, who named this radiant matter as Plasma, responding to its strangely organic behaviour. Understanding the submicroscopic structure of plasma now presents promising links with Quantum Biology which is increasingly recognised as an integral, organic part of our Dynamic Earth.
• A weekend conference at University of Bath – 6th – 7th July
• A symposium at a private venue in the Quantocks – 9th -10th July
• One day of visits to local sites – 8th July
The weekend Conference in Bath is a formal event to which speakers are invited to present papers on the pre-agreed theme with as much scientific evidence as is possible. There will be an opportunity to question all speakers in a group plenary session at the close of the conference. We will be publishing the programme in advance. This event will be filmed and available for a fee from our website at a later date.
Given the densely-packed programme of talks proposed for the Bath conference, we have no plan for break-out sessions in Bath. Instead, informal discussions can take place at our Symposium venue in the Quantocks. Here we will not be publishing a programme in advance but whoever would like suggest a topic – depending on availability of time – is welcome to give a brief introduction and then facilitate discussion. The Quantocks venue is a chance to discuss subject matter in depth in relaxed surroundings. This rural retreat has access to 2,000 acres of forest and accommodation is available 10 minutes walk away in a former school. We recommend early booking for the symposium as there is a limit on numbers and it proved very popular last year.
Venue and Accommodation
Electric Universe UK is back in the city of Bath, England, but at a different venue this time. We have reserved conference facilities and accommodation at the University of Bath – it offers all the convenience of being on one campus, minutes from the city centre (how to get there). The campus has a wide choice of modern rooms to suit all budgets. You can view the options and book here. There is also ample parking on campus, the walkways are mainly level and accessible and the university is equipped with a good library, a choice of cafeterias, and tranquil relaxation areas.
We are, however, returning to the luxurious Apex Hotel in the city centre for a special Gala Dinner on the Saturday evening. We will arrange transport from the university to the Hotel. Be sure to book your dinner tickets in advance.

Professor Andre Koch Torres Assis
Professor of Physics at the University of Campinas, Brazil.
Professor Assis has diverse interests in the fields of gravitation, (Relational Mechanics, Mach’s principle and the origin of inertia, absorption of gravity), electromagnetism (Weber’s Electrodynamics, electric fields and propagation of electromagnetic signals), cosmology (Hubble’s law of redshifts, cosmic background radiation, tired light, infinite universe in space and time) and the history and philosophy of science.
Andre Koch Torres Assis was born in Brazil and educated at the University of Campinas – UNICAMP, BS (1983), PhD (1987). He spent the academic year of 1988 in England with a post-doctoral position at the Culham Laboratory (United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority). He spent one year in 1991-92 as a Visiting Scholar at the Center for Electromagnetics Research of Northeastern University (Boston, USA). From August 2001 to November 2002, and from February to May 2009, he worked at the Institute for the History of Natural Sciences, Hamburg University (Hamburg, Germany) with research fellowships awarded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation of Germany. He is the author of Weber’s Electrodynamics (1994), Relational Mechanics (1999), Inductance and Force Calculations in Electrical Circuits (with M. A. Bueno, 2001), The Electric Force of a Current (with J. A. Hernandes, 2007), and Archimedes, the Center of Gravity, and the First Law of Mechanics (2008). He has been professor of physics at UNICAMP since 1989, working on the foundations of electromagnetism, gravitation, and cosmology.
Dr. Eugene Bagashov
A physicist, currently working at the Joint Institute for Power and Nuclear Research – Sosny (one of the institutes of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus) Minsk, Belarus.
His doctoral research has been in theoretical physics: namely, particle physics and quantum field theory. An avid investigator of core scientific assumptions and a strong supporter and integrator of innovative research undertaken by his professional peers across the world.
Dr. Jeremy Dunning-Davies
Professor of Mathematics and Physics, University of Hull, UK (retired).
Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society; President of the Telesio-Galilei Academy of Sciences; campaigner for real education; prolific author of books on mathematics, physics and science. A particular interest in examining alternative explanations in astrophysics for what is observed in the universe, rather than uncritically accepting current theories. Is what we are seeing what we think we see or what we have been told we are seeing?
Professor Frank James
Professor of History of Science and Head of Collections, The Royal Institution, London, and Professor of History of Science, Faculty of Maths & Physical Sciences, University College London.
His main research has been editing the Correspondence of Michael Faraday which is now complete in six volumes. He is currently writing a book on Humphry Davy’s practical work and lectures on Electric Paradigms from Volta to Maxwell.
Frank James studied at Imperial College where he received his PhD for a thesis on the development of spectroscopy in the nineteenth century. After a year at the Institute of Education, he joined the Royal Institution to establish its history of science activities. In 1998 he was appointed Head of Collections and Heritage and was appointed Professor of History of Science in 2004.
He has been President of the Newcomen Society for the History of Engineering and Technology, the British Society for the History of Science and the History of Science Section of the British Science Association. He was Chair of the National Organising Committee for the XXIVth International Congress for the History of Science and Technology held in Manchester in July 2013. He was recently elected a Corresponding Member of the Académie internationale d’histoire des sciences and a Member of the Academia Europaea.
A natural philosopher, engineer, and writer.
A graduate of the University of Arizona’s Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering College, he spent thirty years in the energy industry. He has designed, consulted, managed and directed the construction and operation of over two and a half giga-watts of power generation and transmission, including solar, gasification and natural gas power systems. A regular presenter for the Thunderbolts Project he has a particular interest in the power of electrodynamic forces whose effects have shaped some specific areas and features of the Earth’s surface.
Dr. Volodymyr Krasnoholovets (tbc)
Senior Scientist at the Institute of Physics, National Academy of Science, Kyiv, Ukraine.
The editor of several science books and collections of works dealing with quantum physics and gravity, Dr. Krasnoholovets has has published over 80 academic research papers. His research focuses on condensed matter physics and extends into the Structure of Space where he has an important perspective which is not elucidated anywhere else in physics. His efforts in understanding the deterministic foundations of physics are important for any theoretical physicist who wishes to understand the limitations of the standard model and quark-lepton physics. Dr. Krasnoholovets co-founded Indra Scientific in Belgium, applying his theoretic research to the development of renewable technologies (the production of biodiesel, recycling of industrial waste, organic waste to energy by using a new design of a gasifier, cleaning of waste water, infrared heating thin films, measuring devices, ecological chemistry, and fortified water etc.).
A researcher and student of fundamental and environmental chemistry.
After working in the IT sector for 10 years, Edo began to pursue independent research. His journey of discovery led him to a radical revision of atomic structure which posits that the sacrosanct ’strong force’ assumed by modern scientific theory is not required, neither is the role of the neutron which can be made redundant in his revision. He has an enduring passion for expressions and forms in nature and a deep fascination for science per se, particularly for the Chemical Elements.
An electrical and software engineer and a long-time supporter of the Electric Universe concept.
James enjoys speaking to groups about recent developments in complex scientific theories. He makes the complicated understandable for an audience that is scientifically curious but not necessarily steeped in the sciences. He is currently researching with a scientist in Europe to construct 3D computer graphic imagery to demonstrate a theory which re-examines the structure of the nucleus of the atom.
Physicist and natural Philosopher.
An early advocate and co-founder of the scientific paradigm of an Electric Universe. He takes issue with modern cosmology for providing a somewhat disconnected view of the Universe invoking a self-reflexive attitude of isolation and disconnection; the EU takes a different view which will be grounded and expounded at ‘Dynamic Earth’. Chief Science Advisor to The Thunderbolts Project. His first peer-reviewed paper on the electrical nature of stars and supernovae was published in the IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, Vol 35 No. 4, Special Issue on Space & Cosmic Plasmas – August 2007. In 2010 he was awarded a gold medal by the European Telesio-Galilei Academy of Science. In 2013 he received the distinguished Sagnac Award from the Natural Philosophy Alliance for his life-long contribution to science.
