The TRACE spacecraft
observes an X-ray flare

April 21, 2002.
Have you ever felt
strange without really knowing why, shortly after a solar flare
entered Earth's atmosphere?
According to scientists, solar flares do cause changes in human
A solar flare is an explosion on the Sun that happens when energy
stored in twisted magnetic fields is suddenly released. Such intense
activity has influence on our mind and body.
More and more scientists
are now convinced that our Sun affects our mental and physical
Sun's activity as it interacts with
the Earths magnetic field, effects extensive changes in human beings
perspectives, moods, emotions and behavioral patterns.
"The idea that spots
on the sun or solar flares might influence human health on earth
at first appears to lack scientific credibility.
significant correlations between hospital admissions and health
registers and Solar-Geomagnetic Activity (S-GMA)
are found, then the challenge is to conceive of and to document
a scientifically plausible and observationally supported
mechanism and model.
There is a large body
of research correlating S-GMA with biological effects and human
There is currently an absence of a known and credible
biophysical mechanism to link the S-GMA with these effects,"
writes Dr Neil Cherry Associate Professor of Environmental
Health at the Lincoln University in his science paper (Schumann
Resonances - A Plausible Biophysical Mechanism for the Human
Health Effects of Solar/geomagnetic Activity).
In Dr. Neil Cherry's
opinion it is possible that that the
(SR) signal is the plausible biophysical mechanism to link
the S-GMA levels to biological and human health effects.
The Schumann resonances are a set of spectrum peaks in the
extremely low frequency (ELF)
portion of the Earth's electromagnetic field spectrum.
Schumann resonances are global electromagnetic resonances, excited
by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth's surface
and the ionosphere.
The Institute of North Industrial Ecology Problems in Russia
measured solar effects from 1948 to 1997 and discovered that
geomagnetic activity showed three seasonal peaks each of those

Every peak matched an

Solar flares can be very powerful.
Our planet is very small
compared to large solar flares.
This led scientist to believe that solar storms desynchronize our
circadian rhythm, in other words
our biological clock.
The pineal gland in our brain is
affected by the electromagnetic activity.
This causes the gland to produce excess melatonin, and melatonin is
the brain's built in "downer" that helps us sleep.
regulatory system depends on repeated environmental cues to
[synchronize] internal clocks," says psychiatrist Kelly Posner,
"Magnetic fields may
be one of these environmental cues."
Psychological effects of

Chaotic or confused
thinking and erratic behaviors also increase.
According to Professor Raymond Wheeler of the University of
Kansas and Russian scientist
Alexander Chizhevsky solar
storms can directly cause conflict, wars and even death among humans
Wheeler expanded on Chishevsky's work by studying violence during
1913; measuring the time between battles and severity. These
findings were compared with the suns 11 year sunspot cycle.
The results showed that as the sun cycle peaked,
there was a rise in
human unrest, uprisings, rebellions, revolutions, and wars
As the magnetic fields
intensified, the reaction within the human brain was a mixture of
deadly emotional tantrums and unadulterated killing sprees.
As Wheeler further compared his findings with human history, he
found a startling pattern that could be traced back 2,500 years.
From a scientific point of view it is clear that solar flares can
affect our health and cause changes in our mind and body.
