An Open Letter to The Electric Universe Thinkers at the Thunderbolts.info Community:
I am writing this letter to you, because I have great respect for the work being done here. As Wallace Thornhill has stated: “From the smallest particle to the largest galactic formation, a web of electrical circuitry connects and unifies all of nature."
The understanding that electrical connections are fundamental to the physical world, is a key to grasping how the Twin Towers, and many other buildings, cars, and other physical matter, 'came apart' on September 11th 2001, an event which has 'altered the world as we know it'. As such, we all have rights, and responsibilities to investigate, discuss and come to some type of understanding of such events, as they most definitely and directly affect our world.
I understand that the topic of 9/11 is very sensitive. For this reason I have been polite and open to those engaging in discussion. Now coming up on the ten year anniversary, and out of respect for the victims, and families/friends affected, (i.e. my significant other lost a friend that day) we should all be able to reasonably debate/discuss this topic in a scientific manner. My posts on the Thunderbolts forum have been just that, reasonable and scientific. Backed up with data and first hand information from many sources.
Recently, this topic has been subjected to treatment that is, to say the least, disheartening. I thought, due to the history and nature of the subject matter concerning the Electric Universe, that the forum would be open, empirical, and science/evidence based. Apparently, this is Not the Case, as a certain member/administrator has been allowed to attack myself, and post misleading, misdirecting, and erroneous material, and then Lock the thread down.
Further, the fact that the book "Where Did the Towers Go? Evidence of Directed Free-Energy Technology on 9/11" is now in print, and was written by the highly qualified Judy Wood BA, MS, and PhD, only lends more credibility to the topic in general. By following the evidence, the good doctor has brought new light to a highly controversial and contested topic. Dr. Wood's research, like that of Immanuel Velikovsky, has started some 'fires', but her candle of investigation is carried solely for illumination.
Surely, those genuinely interested in this topic can research the author's conclusions and offer critical commentary, rather than accusing those who find merit in her investigation of "working to discredit Electric Universe theory" and other such ad hominem attacks. Such emotionally charged attacks "could only serve to polarize the Thunderbolts group." So why is an administrator of the forum engaging in such attacks?
This also makes me wonder why the thread (regarding the book) was removed from the 'Future of Science' board, (where I originally posted it) and moved to the 'New Insights and Mad Ideas' board. The 'Future of Science' board states: 'The role of heretic-pioneers and forbidden questions in the sciences.' Clearly, this was the proper place to post.
I am compelled to write this, as I feel you folks keenly understand, that this treatment of Dr. Wood and the material she presents, is eerily similar to the way Dr. Velikovsky was treated. (Connecting dots that some would prefer remain unconnected.) And indeed, the Electric Universe topic is- by and large, still treated to this very day. Infuriating and sad to be sure, but downright hypocritical for it to happen in this manner. Here of all places. :(
What would Immanuel Say? Perhaps he might say, "that the battle is over, the critics have won." I would hope that is not the case here at Thunderbolts, for, as I believe- "No matter the outcome of this battle, the time of reckoning is at hand. The voice of Velikovsky's ghost will be heard." A new 'heretic-pioneer' has emerged- her name is Doctor Judy Wood.
Even a cursory look at some of the undisputed scientific information and photos presented by myself will show that this topic is indeed related to the Electric Universe, and is therefore relevant to the forum. Just a bit of research into the work of John Hutchison, with his Tesla coils, Van de Graaff generators, and electro-magnetic spectrum/frequency modulation experiments; and the interest of the military in his work- Well, the evidence speaks all for itself...
The most striking aspect of this whole episode, however, is that Dr. Wood is the only person to actually have conducted an open, forensic, scientific investigation, and gone on the legal record, filing a Qui Tam Lawsuit regarding the events of 9/11, and the destruction of the Twin Towers. This suit ultimately went all the way to the Supreme Court before they upheld the erroneous, and illegal, dismissal by the 'Honorable' Judge George B. Daniels. Outrageous!
I hope that you all can find time to read the thread, and the accompanying links. At least to the point of being able to discern who is spreading mis-information. Deliberately or Otherwise. It will not be a waste of your time, as the events of 9/11 and those that have followed as a direct result have clearly affected us all, and will continue doing so.
In closing, I think that Dr. Judy Wood is the modern day Velikovsky. As there is a concentrated, orchestrated attack on her work and person. I am very saddened to see her work attacked and dismissed in this fashion by a senior member/administrator of the Thunderbolts community. This person is either maliciously misinformed, (and quite rude) and refuses to look at data outside their own personal viewpoint, or is a professional dis-informant. As discussion has been ended, I am forced to write this appeal to "the better angels of our nature" in the spirit of openness and fairness.
Please, take as much time as you need, if you wish to respond, and check the facts for yourself. The one thing I had not yet gotten into, except for the quote from the book, "Last Man Down", by Richard Picciotto, are the first responder and survivor testimonies. There is even more compelling evidence in these testimonials, which supports the work of Dr. Judy Wood. Here is a link to an archived database of such testimonials:

Thank you for your attention, and all the best,
M. Edward Godward
P.S. For the record, I would like to state that overall, I am very grateful for Thunderbolts, and for all those who make it what it is. Also, for the information and perspective the community has brought to my awareness, and for the space to post what I have posted. For those reasons, I urge you all, not to come away from this open letter with ANY negative feelings. A wise person once said: "The fruits of progress are sown with the seeds of discontent."
