For simplicity, the hierarchy of flat spirals has so far been portrayed as a set of direct current generators, but the evidence is that they are, in fact, alternators.

The sun keeps fairly good time. The diagram shows the changing location of its sunspots over consecutive periods of about eleven years.

The sun must have a clock (oscillator) – not difficult in an electric universe.

The electric clock, whilst not a exactly a quartz chronometer is accurate enough, and big and powerful.
