Book Review: Weatherman’s Guide to the Sun, Third Edition

Review by John G. Dzwonczyk

The isolation of COVID has had the result of much more book reading in my case and somewhat serendipitously, the effort has included in succession Gerald H. Pollack’s The Fourth Phase of Water, Magnesium: Reversing Disease by Thomas E. Levy, MD, and now Weatherman’s Guide to the Sun by Ben Davidson. Each of these are technical in nature, with the first and third being essentially textbooks. What I am most thoroughly impressed with is the breadth of Davidson, however brief his prose might be. I include the others here, as their subject matters are readily conjoined with Davidson’s sine qua non premise that “The Sun Affects EVERYTHING.”

I am old enough that I distinctly recall the statement in my Catholic School 4th grade Geography book “The Sun never moves.” Although this was presented as an orthodoxy without appeal at the time, clearly science had long before moved on from such a notion; however, it was evidently satisfactory to those clergymen who awarded Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur to these little publications. One supposes the intent was to dissuade from the commonplaces of “sunrise and sunset” as being motions of our star. And, whether or not it was intentional, very little else was said throughout my formal education as to the celestial role or habits of The Sun, as if it was all to be taken for granted. Most acquired along the way a vague sense that the sun is an ongoing nuclear reaction of enormous scale, but far enough away that we receive its benefits of heat and light without very much danger, apart from occasional sunburn. One suspects that similar views are still quite common worldwide, including among those who festoon their lawns with signs signaling their virtuous belief in “science.”

The story that Davidson relates is quite different, however. I am paraphrasing here, but it is clear that stars are not simply powerplants conveniently located here and there for the benefit of nearby planets, but part of a Universal energy and information exchange that includes those planets and everything about them, right down to each subatomic particle, and all act in concert up through galactic rotation, that of galactic clusters, and then everything greater than that. In these vast gearboxes, periodicity is inevitable, and as with more familiar mechanical devices, harmonics develop, with attendant effects, whether wonderful or destructive.

The climate of Planet Earth is simply not some vague matter of superficial biological processes and their additions and deletions to an isolated ecosystem. The earth and all upon it are ineluctably influenced by the sun, vice versa, and far beyond, up and down the scale. Sunspots, solar flares, coronal mass ejections, and cosmic radiation all have enormous effects on earth weather, including changes in the magnetosphere of the earth, with consequences to everything imaginable, including earthquakes and tsunamis. To the point where these latter phenomena are predictable with great accuracy. Lightning—its frequency and intensity—is affected by injections of energy from The Sun, and also, somewhat surprisingly, by what the author refers to as “earthspots,” the planetarily-generated upwelling of discharges analogous to those which occur on the sun. Though the author does not mention this, as a student of the subject, I must note that there have been connections made in the literature between UFO crashes and atmospheric electrical disturbances. If we apprehend antigravity mechanics as themselves reliant upon electrostatic forces, it makes sense that massive injections of similar energy forms could disrupt such devices. It would also tend to somewhat limit their applicability in such an environment.

In a similar vein, if we consider the charge concentrations that characterize the antigravity devices demonstrated by T.T. Brown, LaViolette, and others, it is no far jump to relate these to the so-called “exclusion zones” of a Fourth Phase of Water, nor to the beneficial effects of Magnesium in blocking calcium channels as proposed by Levy. An Invisible Rainbow indeed flows all around and through everything, with consequences to the water contained of course in everything living, but also in a great deal of what we might think of as inanimate, such as the Earth’s crust. Davidson does go on to propose just how something like the “Lost Continent of Atlantis” might have been subsumed by a crustal action affected by some combination of solar and galactic forces harmonically conspiring to bring about sudden terraforming. The final chapter is quite thought-provoking in such respects.

While we are immersed in folk-expertise on the matter of climate change (much as COVID-19 has provided spokesmen by far more abundantly than its cases), Weatherman’s Guide to the Sun takes a refreshingly dismissive—and indeed, properly silent—stance on anthropogenically-induced climate change. It does not in any fashion deny climate change as a matter of enormous interest; seems, though, that The Sun is the overwhelming agent through which it all occurs. Davidson also doesn’t mention CERN, nor chemtrails, but it may not be too much of a hop, skip, and jump to imagine that geoengineering efforts are intended to forestall or mitigate some recognized cosmic events perceived to be on their way. The Mayan Calendar enjoyed a brief popularity earlier in this millennium, but it may have excellent basis in actual cosmic changes now occurring, which include Earth’s magnetic field reversal, but more importantly, a magnetic excursion that is “a true extinction-level event.” The last one of these was The Gothenburg Event, which was 12,000-13,000 years ago. If we are indeed due for one of these, it can hardly be a wonder that “breakaway civilizations” are anxious to bug out of here!

I can hardly do justice to the importance of Weatherman’s Guide, as a layman myself, but I assure everyone who may find the topics I mentioned above as curious and probably intimately related in our experience of this life that this will be one of your best-spent $65 this year. I will be going back to my copy over and over again. And Davidson makes new videos almost every day and publishes at and on YouTube. These reinforce the book quite well.
