“If nuclear and gravitational forces were the only forces at work in the universe, the broad
pattern of cosmic evolution would be one of gradual thermal degradation punctuated by
occasional explosive events.  The cosmos would resemble the serene and monotonous heavens
of classical conception.  There is, however, a cosmic agitator:  the magnetic field.  Although
only a small part of the available energy in the universe is invested in magnetic fields,
they are responsible for most of the continual violent activity of the cosmos, from auroral
displays in the earth's atmosphere to stellar flares and X-ray emission, and the massing of
clouds of interstellar gas in galaxies.”

E. N. Parker, Scientific American (August 1983)
