Atoms are electric..
if everything is made of atoms then is everything electric?

Ever thought about geology...
not making much sense?
is there a logic alternative?

It's not what you think you see
It's what don't you see.
What else don't you see?

The Clapham Junction Triangle
Amazing massive triangles formed amongst the Cart Ruts of Malta

The Earth's Electrical Environment

The global electric weather circuit in an Electric Universe
