    WOW, I mean WOW-Filamentary structures on Sun

    I don't think I'm going to defend this.
    Rather, I'm going to put my own paper in Arxiv after obtaining some software
    (Adobe Elements?)

    I skimmed the actual writing in the paper to see if he was trying to make a claim that the sun is surrounded by giant automotive mufflers, but he seemed to be using the images to describe what he's seeing, and not actually claiming that this 'skeletal structure of the Sun' is something rigid.

    There is NO question that the images are pretty odd looking because they imply physical ductwork.
    Forming opinions as we speak

    Ok.

    All those mufflers would certainly explain why the sun is so quiet

    I am probably slaughtering it but:

    If you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

    I wonder if the writer works for a car shop

    Good grief.
    Reminds me of of the work of an old sparring partner of mine, who went by the name of Seethruart. To him, clouds were giant starships and lunar bootprints were cities.

    Odd. I detect a bit of sarcasm in the posts above.

    If not for all the ductwork, how else do you explain the aliens' ability to generate the flames we see, that keep us warm and help them supercool the computer matrix at the core of the sun?

    Sometimes I worry about all you skeptics out there...

    Who’s skeptical? It was just a matter of time until astrophysics was replaced with clever photographic manipulation. By Photoshop ver. X perhaps quantum mechanics can also be reduced to picture science.

    It's certainly cheaper than actual exploration. I'd vote for it, as it underlines the old addage, "reality is what you make it."
