I haven't seen anything like that in the mainstream media before. It makes sense, as far as I'm concerned. If magnetic fields form around an electric current, the shape of the Earth's magnetosphere points to a toroidal electric current.
The internal dynamo paradigm relies on a solid metal core revolving in an outer core of liquid metal. I don't understand how such a set up could be stable. The liquid outer core would absorb the angular momentum of both the core and the rest of the Earth around it, which would slow the Earth's rotation gradually. Such a system would be chaotic, not stable.
Thanks for posting this.
"As below, so above" Read about Ampere's magnetic molecule here The extra nuclear shapes of electrons in atoms and molecules are suggestive of the shapes of electrical plasmas in the cosmos. Ampere's experiments led him to propose that what we now call "electrons" are according to him, magnetic molecules. (In my mind, the shapes of the atomic "orbits" of electrons are not orbits at all; but simply the shape of the electron itself when in the vicinity of the atomic nucleus.)
For example this one of the The 3dz2 electron orbital:
Found here Notice the toroid. Some "orbitals" are simply toroids without the spheroids. Not shown is the nucleus at the center of the "orbital."
The theory on magnetism due to electrons is that the electron produces dual magnetic dipole moments due to the various "motions." Its spin and orbit each produce magnetism, as does the nucleus, which is composed of both electrons and protons. (The electrons in the nucleus are associated with protons which the theory names "neutrons")
