From your NASA link:
Since solar wind is measured in nanopascals it is approximately 1000 million times weaker than winds here on Earth.
This is why though the
solar flares affect "space weather", they don't affect Earth weather in the short term. In the long term the sun will get bigger and hotter and boil
all the water in the oceans away.
You've not shown any link between cymatics, and the other things you talked about related to solar activity, so it's not a theory and it's not really
even a reasonable hypothesis, unless you can explain better why there would be a link.
Our two biggest concerns about the effects of large solar flares are the possibility of damaging or destroying satellites not protected by our
magnetic field, or possibly inducing large currents in power lines, taking down parts of our electrical grids. If an event like the
1859 Solar Superstorm
should recur, it would likely do both.
Ice cores contain thin nitrate-rich layers that can be analyzed to reconstruct a history of past events before reliable observations; the data
from Greenland ice cores was gathered by Kenneth G. McCracken and others. These show evidence that events of this magnitude—as measured by
high-energy proton radiation, not geomagnetic effect—occur approximately once per 500 years, with events at least one-fifth as large occurring
several times per century. Less severe storms have occurred in 1921 and 1960, when widespread radio disruption was reported.
So, the really
big ones happen perhaps every 500 years. The events 1/5 as large happen several times per century. And you're asking why we haven't been hit by big
events in one year? It's not sentience and it's not even exactly luck, it's the statistical pattern we've observed that big flare events do strike
Earth, but as the ice cores show, the frequency of large events is pretty low. There is no evidence of sentience of the sun, you were joking about
that, weren't you?
