As we look around us we see a strange event of nearly all governments reacting to reports of a disease which is only identified by tests which are not validated to test for any disease. Further research shows this governmental attitude of oppression in the name of disease was seen around since the 1400s.
We might with Solomon say there is nothing new under the sun yet the sun itself has great variations.
Sun spots are seen as black spots on the sun. The number and frequency of sunspots correlate to overall magnitude of solar flux. The more sunspots the more solar output. There is a well known cycle of sunspot activity which peaks and ebbs in a roughly 11 year cycle.
The sunspot cycle in the graph is solar cycle number 24. A close look shows that the minimum numbers were near zero. This is not always the case. If several 11 year cycles are compared we can see a larger trend.
The numbers during peak activity are going down. Via carbon 14 dating of ice samples a graph of solar activity has been created which correlates quite well to historical reports of cold and warm climate conditions over the centuries.
If the 70 year data is connected to this graph then that last red line would be going down.
It is very possible that Earth will be facing colder seasons ahead. Sunlight is plant growth is not just about heat. The between the sun’s solar flux and the Earth negative polarity there is a very weak electrical field which pulses at about 7 times per second. Plants and animals are extremely sensitive to any change in this field. The growth of plants can be drastically altered by variations which most science researchers are unaware of. Sunspots seem to indicate when these high and lows occur.
Amateur radio operator know that high sunspots make propagation much better. Here is an excerpt from SWLing.com talking about the decreasing trend in sunspots published December 16, 2019:
ONE WEEK FROM A SPACE AGE RECORD: 2019 is about to set a Space Age record. So far this year, the sun has been blank (no sunspots) for 261 days, including the last 24 days in a row. If the streak continues for only 7 more days, 2019 will break the Space Age record for spotless suns.
The previous record-holder is the year 2008, when the sun was blank for 268 out of 365 days, making the Solar Minimum of 2008-2009 the deepest of the Space Age. Next weekend, barring a sudden profusion of sunspots, 2019 will move into first place.
Apparently looking at the 1500 year trends we must conclude , What goes up must come down. It looks like we are in for another solar minimum cycle.
With this in mind hydroponics offers three important opportunities.
First you can grow much more food in a much smaller space. There is enough space underneath a double bed to grow via hydroponic means tomatoes to feed two people.
Secondly with artificial lighting and the insulation of an indoor location growing can be accomplished year round. You may say that many plants don’t grow well out of season. That is true. But how do they know the season? In October 1746 Dr. Mainbray of Edinburgh connected two myrtle trees to the electrical output of an electrostatic machine for the month. Both trees sent out new branches and buds as if it were spring. (The Invisible Rainbow, Firstenberg pg. 68 published March 2017)
This leads to the third opportunity of our research. With a small area of growing we can perform experiments to possibly supply our own man made electrical field to stimulate and maintain robust plant growth rates even in a solar minimum.
With these thoughts in mind we invite you to view our post for FECORE Hydroponics Project.
