1. In episode 3 of the Cosmic Connection, LPPFusion Chief Scientist Eric Lerner continues to describe the broad outlines of universal evolution without a Big Bang or an origin of the universe in time. The universe has evolved away from equilibrium, with larger and larger energy fluxes—the density or concentration of energy flows has tended to increase. This evolution has accelerated with time.

    This is a very different narrative of the origins of the structure that we see around us in the universe from the Big Bang’s: the huge explosion and expansion, the mysterious inflation, dark matter and dark energy mixed in. What difference do these narratives make to people in the here and now, in June 2020 on a planet gripped by multiple crises?

    People have always looked to cosmic origin narratives to make sense of their own lives, especially in times of crisis. The Big Bang narrative does not give a lot of guidance in earthly crises. It is a universe doomed to decay, where the evolution of life and human society are an insignificant transitory blip on a tiny speck of dust. Fortunately, this pessimistic narrative is completely scientifically wrong.

    The non-Big-Bang narrative gives us rational reason for hope. It shows us that accelerating evolution is the rule in the universe, and interruptions of that evolution—crises—are the aberrations—although as we will see, frequent and unavoidable ones. So that provides us with a rational, scientific basis for hope: crises can be and have been overcome—that is the basic tendency of nature, of universal evolution.

    This scientifically supported narrative shows us that we must find a way to increase the energy flow density, to find sustainable ways of developing here on earth more concentrated sources of energy. To escape from the present crisis, we need to harness the same power that now powers the universe—fusion power.

    Another way the two cosmic narratives matter is that the Big Bang narrative doesn’t make any sense. The Big Bang theory is not only wrong in so many ways, it also undermines the basic rationality that real science provides. Without that rationality—anything goes and it becomes perfectly acceptable to believe, say, that the coronavirus is a hoax.

    In contrast to the Big Bang narrative, the narrative of universal evolution outlined here does make sense. To understand it, all you have to know is some basic processes of electromagnetism and gravity. And it thus supports the opposite premise—that if the universe makes sense, then it is possible to make sense of what is happening here on earth.

  2. In episode 2 of the Cosmic Connection, LPPFusion Chief Scientist Eric Lerner begins to discuss what knowledge can be gained by looking at the evolution of the universe that can help to understand what is going on now, on earth, in social evolution. Is the current global crisis the sign of a world slipping into chaos, the first steps towards a new Dark Age? Or are they the symptoms of a form of society that has reached its limits, the symptoms of the need for a new way of running society that can lead to a new renaissance and an enormously better life for all humanity? How can cosmology help to answer this question?

    If there was no Big Bang, how and where do we start the story of the universe? There really is no beginning, but the earliest stage of evolution we have evidence for is the formation of the vast ancient structures we observe—superclusters of cluster of galaxies and even larger structures. In this episode, Lerner explains how these structures came into existence over trillions of years through the interaction of three basic processes, all of which have been studied here on earth for centuries: the pinch effect, gravitational contraction and the disk-generator effect.

  3. In episode 2 of the Real Crisis in Cosmology, LPPFusion Chief Scientist Eric Lerner shows that the abundance of light elements—helium, deuterium and lithium—can be explained without a Big Bang through the Galactic Origin of Light Elements (GOLE). Helium originates in thermonuclear reactions in stars in forming galaxies, while deuterium and lithium are formed by collisions of cosmic rays with hydrogen, helium, carbon and oxygen nuclei. Theories formulated over 30 years ago have made correct predictions, some of which have been confirmed only in recent years. Lerner shows how these theories, combined with more recent observations that most cosmic rays collide with the stars that accelerated them, solve a growing mystery of why there are so many more high energy neutrinos than high energy gamma rays. The certainty that large amounts of light elements were produced by galactic processes makes the contradiction between Big Bang predictions and observation even worse. Therefore the universe could never have gone through a period of simultaneous high temperature and high density. In other words, the Big Bang never happened.

  4. In the first episode, Eric Lerner introduces the podcast series and describes what will be discussed. What is the connection between the cosmos and us? A big part of the connection between cosmology and society is that, over the centuries, people have generally projected their ideas about society onto the structure and history of the cosmos—and conversely have used ideas about the cosmos to understand what is happening, or even what should happen in society. There is also a real scientific connection. We ourselves are a product of cosmic evolution—our sun and earth emerged from this process and biological and social evolution are also part of the evolutionary processes occurring in the universe. Learning in an accurate way about cosmic evolution can help us understand the evolution of our own society in the here and now. We’re not separate from the cosmos—we’re part of it.

    Since we are part of the universe, the physical processes we observe in the universe are the same ones that can occur here on earth on a much smaller scale. In the hugely important effort to harness fusion energy as the next source of energy for humanity, what we learn from cosmic phenomena are the key to success. Indeed, the very existence of fusion energy was first discovered in the search for the source of energy of the sun and other stars.

    The Big Bang theory tells a story of a universe that was “wound up” at the beginning by a giant explosion and has been running down like an old watch since then. A universe whose future is preordained as one of expansion and cooling to nothingness, to a state of final equilibrium. But once we realize that the Big Bang story is simply not true and not supported by scientific evidence—which we detail in our video series—then we are looking at a very different story. We are instead looking at a universe that observations tell us is “running up”, a universe characterized by accelerating evolution.

  5. Recovered from the depths of our archives, we have never before seen footage of the first shots ever of FF-1! We recently found in our archives a video of our very first shots with FF-1 on October 15, 2009. The cast of characters includes myself-- Eric Lerner-- and S. Krupakar Murali,, Abdel Haboub and, behind the video, except for a brief peek, Rezwan Razani, then the Executive Director of Focus Fusion Society. Note the very stripped-down equipment—one oscilloscope, two instruments. (We were really eager to fire right after we built the machine with the help of Dr. John Thomson.) Now we have six scopes and almost 30 streams of data coming from FF-2B. You’ll see the first shot at 5:50 in the video. At 8:00, the small bump on the right of the yellow line on the screen indicates a very small pinch, producing some fusion reactions, even in the first shot. But the big peak on the right of the same line, shown below, what we called the first pinch, doesn’t come until 20:49. You’ll note in the excitement I confused the two instruments traces, one measuring current and the other voltage, for a few minutes, but I got straightened out by the end of the video.
