Influence of eclipses on microbiological growth rates
Author(s): Prabhakar Vegaraju, Alex Hankey and Ramesh Mavathur
Abstract: Previous experiments established strong effects of solar eclipses on vaccine production, by observing increased vaccine production during three solar eclipses in 2012-2013, thus showing that eclipses’ malefic influences oppose life. Here, we report experiments on E. Coli exponential phase growth rates on days of total and partial eclipses of sun and moon, using the same laboratory methods as in our previously reported E. Coli growth experiments. Solar eclipses slowed bacterial growth rate to a greater extent than lunar eclipses; total eclipses showed greater impact than partial eclipses. The solar eclipse results are consistent with the earlier findings; the lunar eclipse results are smaller in magnitude, indicating weaker effects. These experiments therefore suggest that eclipses slow exponential phase bacterial growth rates. They confirm that eclipses exert global, malefic, life-opposing influences, supporting ancient knowledge from Jyotisha astrology, and extending previous findings on virus propagation to bacterial growth, and on solar eclipses to lunar eclipses.
