A Possible Answer

also known as the "Local Fluff."

Astronomers call the cloud we're running into now the Local Interstellar Cloud or "Local Fluff" for short. It's about 30 light years wide and contains a wispy mixture of hydrogen and helium atoms at a temperature of 6000 C. The existential mystery of the Fluff has to do with its surroundings. About 10 million years ago, a cluster of supernovas exploded nearby, creating a giant bubble of million-degree gas. The Fluff is completely surrounded by this high-pressure supernova exhaust and should be crushed or dispersed by it.

This article is from 2009, from NASA Science and had been discussed on ATS a few times. What I have noticed while reading those threads is that we don’t seem to be affected by it.
So then, my question would be as follows; Why does Merav Opher, a NASA Heliophysics Guest Investigator from George Mason University conclude and I quote:
"There could be interesting times ahead!" says Opher.
If we are not affected, if we are not going to be affected, why would Mr Opher state something like that? It just raises more questions. How can we measure the different densities of the cloud as we journey through it?
It is mentioned in the article that the cloud is highly magnetized and I believe that this could be the core of the question and if so, how could we accurately measure the different states of magnetism as we journey through it?
Finally, my last question is relatively simple. Could there be something within the cloud itself, not considering the magnetism effects, or the hydrogen and helium factors which are all kept at bay by our Sun’s heliosphere, that could be affecting our part of the universe in a vibrational way?
This thread is not about doom and gloom as I think that the Local Interstellar Cloud has been present for at least a thousand years but what I wish to expand upon is the possibility that it could affect the vibrational fields of our solar system, our planets, Earth, and finally, human beings.
This anology would be very similar to an aircraft going through turbulence.
Looking forward to interesting discussions. All comments are welcome.
Thank you for reading.
