Abstract

There is nothing more powerful than a paradigm. When viewed through the lens of the standard gravitational and magnetohydrodynamic paradigm the Sun blinds us with paradoxes. Meanwhile models based on the electrodynamic behavior of plasma are ignored. The Nobel prizewinning plasma physicist, Hannes Alfv?n, was a pioneer in this new plasma cosmology. Two recent discoveries stand out in relation to Alfv?n's predictions so that ultimately he cannot be ignored. The first concerns the birth of stars and the second the electric circuit of the Sun. The Electric Universe extends plasma cosmology and views all stars as an electric discharge phenomenon.
