unexpected beat in heart of milky way

the center of our galaxy is approximately 27,000 light-years away in the
direction of the constellation sagittarius. at its core, as scientist have known
for some time, lies a supermassive black hole surrounded by millions of stars,
all huddled far more closely than in the galactic outskirts where our sun
recent observations have shown that somewhere in this crowded region there is a
source of intense energy -- gamma rays -- that astronomers are struggling to
identify. it could be from an exploded star, or possibly it is a signature of
mysterious dark matter.
earlier this spring the first indications of this source were announced by two
gamma ray experiments: the veritas program based in the united states and the
japanese/australian cangaroo project. the most recent detection by the european
high energy stereoscopic system (hess) has left little doubt that there are
unexpected gamma rays coming from the galactic center.
"it is somewhat of a surprise," said trevor weekes, the principal investigator
of veritas. "but the galactic center has always been a bit of a mystery."
part of the intrigue stems from the fact that the center of our milky way is
partly shrouded by dust lying in the galactic plane, the same plan in which the
sun and the bulk of the galaxy's outlying stars orbit.
the dust absorbs much of the visible light, making it virtually impossible to
see into the heart of the galaxy. but other forms of light, like gamma rays,
which are the most energetic type of radiation, are unaffected. that's one
reason scientists study gamma rays -- because they slice through the dust and
reach our solar system.
the three observatories are all recording very high-energy gamma rays, which
paula chadwick, a member of hess from the university of durham, describes as
having "a billion times more energy than the radiation used for x-rays in
luckily for us, these energetic photons are absorbed in the upper atmosphere
before they reach the surface. astronomers have learned to use this absorption
as a way to detect these gamma rays.
"about 20 kilometers up a gamma ray interacts with a molecule of air, producing
an electron and positron that travel in the same general direction as the gamma
ray," weekes explained.
a positron is the antimatter partner to the electron. the initial particles bang
into other molecules of air making more electron-positron pairs. the cascade
forms what is called an "air shower."
a fast-moving shower particle releases a flash of blue light that is too weak
and too fast to be seen by the naked eye. but big collecting mirrors, like at
hess and the other facilities, can pick up the shower?s signature.
"from [the flash detection], you can tell the direction and energy of the
incoming gamma ray," said daniel hooper, a theorist from the university of

with respect to the article that 'light eye' posts:
might this light, as referenced, be more than fancy,
and indeed more toward possiblity, a possible source
and evidence of the central sun? this then raises an
altogether interesting, albeit very simple question,
as to the locale of the central sun. might it in fact
be as easy as that, to assume that indeed the central
sun merely resides within the center of any galaxy,
the ra material states:
1. logos - a galactic level creator; the creator of
all the stars in a particular galaxy. defines the
natural laws of physics for that galaxy, establishes
its own ?personality? of deep-mind archetypes and a
form for consciousness to express itself, such as the
human bodily form: the template for all evolution in
this and neighboring galaxies.
2. sub-logos = an entity whose physical body is a star
= a planetary level creator; the creator of all the
planets in a particular solar system

fascinating article. couple of points come to mind:
anmazing how our scientists never admit they're
wrong, just move the goal posts to suit the
situation. now we have black hole - "with a
density so great that light itself cannot even
escape" - jetting out streams of gamma rays.
no wonder we non-techies are a tad sceptical at
then, "part of the intrigue stems from the fact
that the center of our milky way is partly
shrouded by dust lying in the galactic plane "- ?
the 'veil', by any other name?
then axis writes:<might this light, as referenced,

i agree fully, and this is consistent with ra:
ra. bk2.40 0218
"the white light which emanates and forms the
articulated sub-logos has its beginning in what
may be metaphysically seen as darkness. the light
comes into that darkness and transfigures it,
causing the chaos to organize and become
reflective or radiant. thus the dimensions come
conversely, the blackness of the black hole,
metaphysically speaking, is a concentration of
white light being systematically absorbed once
again into the one creator. finally, this
absorption into the one creator continues until
all the infinity of creations have attained
sufficient spiritual mass in order that all form
once again the great central sun, if you would so
imagine it, of the intelligent infinity awaiting
potentiation by free will."
ra. bk3.52 0519
"this octave density of which we have spoken is
both omega and alpha, the spiritual mass of the
infinite universes becoming one central sun or
creator once again. then is born a new universe, a
new infinity, a new logos which incorporates all
that the creator has experienced of itself."
