Solar Russian Roulette

As particle physicists and astrophysicists learn more and more, there is no doubt in my mind that at some point we will be able to control our own Sun. Just recently in the news, NASA scientists working with some international scientists had discovered solar vortex flows which opened and closed on their way between the Sun and the Earth. Now that we have this information we may be able to open and close those vortex flows at will. No, not right now, but let's say in a few decades in the future. Okay so let's talk.

As the coordinator for a think tank which happens to operate online, we do discuss geo-engineering. In other words ways, to change our climate, slowdown disastrous type storms, and create the average annual rainfall in the various regions on our planet which need it to survive. Of course, the ultimate goal would be to control the temperature of the oven that is to control the spherical flickering flame. Mankind will not be stuck in a cave looking at shadows on the wall forever, eventually his science will allow him outside the cage to discover and unlock the secrets of the universe.

If you've been following CERN lately, you can see we are about to do that with the foundations of particle physics with the Higgs Boson, or God particle; a good step in the right direction if mankind is grown-up enough to use this information to his advantage for the proper purposes. I assume that mankind is now responsible enough to keep these scientific facts outside the realm of maladapted humans, two-bit dictators, and scientifically endowed international terrorists.

It probably is a good thing that humans cannot control the Sun currently, because they might turn it down to prevent global warming, based on erroneous data and perhaps slipping us into an Ice Age. Since everything in our universe affects everything else, the only question is to what degree, we have to be cognizant of the fact that when we start screwing around with such a very complex system, we had better know what we're doing, otherwise we will be playing Russian Roulette as we play games with our Sun, the Earth's atmosphere, and work to exploit all of our geo-engineering technology and abilities.

Just because we can, doesn't mean we should. Although, once we learn how, and if it is ever necessary, then we should do what it takes to protect the life on this pale blue dot. I just don't think mankind is there yet, but we should all have faith in the future of this technology and science. Please consider all this and think on it.
