    • Here is one topic you are unable to answer... It might make worldwide headlines, and you might find yourself on the right side of the history... Read this before it is deleted. Some unknown vigilantes are deleting most of my comments whenever they appear... John Wheeler once famously said - science journals refuse to published your work not because they don't understand it, but because they do. If they don't understand something, they publish it... I created a manuscrip about this and sent it to many science journals with some of my theories based on hard facts. One such idea was about True Pattern of Magnetic Field. It was rejected. And if I publish a short version of it in NOtown channels, it keeps disappearing... The link to it is here:
