So, as to answering your question, "How so?"- does SN 1987A being found to be blue supergiant Sandulek -69 202 "precisely fit the circumstances that would be expected IF supernovae were powered by genic energy"? I think what he meant was just that; Sandulek-69 202 was NOT a star that FIT the conventional "wisdom" at the time of a star that had exhausted its nuclear fuel supply. If ANYTHING it was the opposite; a highly energetic star FULL of fuel!
I don't know if this helps but: How would you detect and measure "genic energy"? What observable effects would it have on matter? How would you distinguish it from other forms of energy?
Rather than restate what I've said. In answer to your question please read my answer to "NoNukes" in post 135.
I was trying to get at what I thought Catholic Scientist was trying to get at with his question, "How so?" I'm asking for examples more than explanations.
I can use a thermometer or a calorimeter to detect and measure heat energy. I can use a telescope or a photocell to detect and measure light energy. What instrument(s) would I use to detect "genic energy"?
