21. A Life's Work? [SIS C&C Review $]
... such fundamental matters further, the titles of Appendices III-VIII give an idea of what is on offer: A particle-light theory of quantum mechanics, A simple classical model treatment of the chemical bond, Classical models and many-electron atoms, Bond energy in diatomic molecules from the force constants, nuclear distances and classical model theory, Unification through Lorentz transformations to realms of simple ... presentation.... I had anticipated religious overtones in his paper but there were none, fortunately, even though the person inviting him down is a professed 'short history' chemist. Effects of his paper difficult to evaluate, for those who are in agreement with him are more deeply convinced his thinking is correct and those who were opposed are still opposed ... largely on a lifetime's work on high explosives, which has brought him into contact with not only the world of rocks and mines where they are used but also the frontiers of chemistry and plasma physics. (He is particularly proud of his Nitro-Nobel Gold Medallion, awarded in 1968 for work on slurry explosives.) Add to this an obvious love of a ...
22. The "Bulk Chemistries" of Venus and Jupiter [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. II No. 1 (August 1976) Home¦ Issue Contents The "Bulk Chemistries" of Venus and Jupiter* Ralph E. Juergens Copyright© 1976 by Ralph E. Juergens. [* This article is a modified version of one of 22 essays contained in an Anthology presented to Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky on December 5 ... must have originated as an entity by condensation from a single, primordial, solar nebula of dust and gasses; (2) this nebula must have consisted of a blend of chemical elements practically identical to that now present in the atmosphere of the Sun; and (3) all the planets must initially have reflected this composition, modified only by their positions ... , it is clear that Venus must be composed of refractory or rocky materials with the addition of a metallic component. But such a composition is entirely at odds with the known chemistry and structure of the Jovian planets. Jupiter, with a mean density only one quarter that of Venus, has a composition of basically the solar sort, with the bulk of ...
23. Physics, Astronomy and Chronology. Part One: Radiometric Chronometry [SIS C&C Review $]
... my thesis. The details of further concentration of the uranium into specific minerals requires a rather precise knowledge of the chemistry of the forming rocks. We cannot know any of these chemistries so how can we date the Universe, the Earth, or the time when its rocks formed? If we cannot assume that all of the uranium minerals have the same composition ... . The interested reader can consult Chaos and Creation (chapter 3) for a more complete discussion of quantavolution upon radiometric chronometry [2. Uranium, like many other heavy metal chemical elements, is internally unstable and decays- transforming itself into slightly lighter chemical elements: 2.39 x 10 7 years 236 U 92---> 232 Th 90+ 4 ... of each of the intermediate atoms are determinable It can be guaranteed that there has been no contamination or disruption of the processes To begin with, we do not know the initial chemistry- this puts 15 of the 'ifs' into doubt. Here assumption, disguised as a "logical deduction", is invoked to make the unknown appear to be known. ...

25. The Origami of Species [Kronos $]
... themselves in mobius-like fashion. In somewhat the same way, the genetic structure of biological organisms exhibits a conformation that appears to be, fundamentally, a three-dimensional geometric pattern --with its chemical properties as a natural outgrowth of the physical topology. Any changes in the molecular bits and pieces can radically affect the geometry, and this in turn would affect the chemistry through ... in molecular interactions. These changes which give rise to mutations are known to be caused by thermal, radiational, or chemical agents, but there is one additional agency which has not been explored in depth and might be, either singly or in concert with the other effects, responsible for inheritable changes that would also increase the possibility of giving rise to new ... , while at either extreme the mutants which had been subjected to unregenerative or fatal damage could not survive or have progeny. Similarly, organisms which have been exposed to potentially toxic chemicals, or to pathogenic microorganisms, would develop mutagenic strains. Thermal effects, as mutagenic causes, could be relegated under the category of radiation, as heat is nominally induced by ...

... cranks and religious fanatics. Now the door is open to claims, and some scientists are tripping over each other's footnotes in their eagerness to go to through it. Since most chemical elements and compounds can be either found beyond the Earth or conjectured to have once formed from the thermal and electrical conditions that occur exoterrestrially, scenarios of past events to explain present ... seed" sizes and dropped at dawn. So goes the argument of Reade, himself a confectioner and engineer. The necessary procedures and formulas are presently at the threshold of laboratory chemistry, he asserts. On the processes required to produce edible carbohydrates in the form described by the ancient sources, all are present in the environmental setting described by the same sources ... in turn leads to discoveries of processes occurring in outer space that influence the Earth, and thereupon present new problems and possibilities -solar energy, weather control, incursions of hitherto unrecognized chemicals and particles, and even, say some, life forms contributing to evolution and diseases. A modern pragmatic preoccupation with the skies, it would appear, is now being laid ...
27. THE BURNING OF TROY: PART ONE: HISTORICAL DISTURBANCES: CHAPTER EIGHT: THE OBLITERATION OF HUMAN SIGNS [Quantavolution Website]
... Earth, I could think easily of a set of very heavy, "cosmic" mega-forces interacting as such and with a given biosphere, atmosphere and lithosphere. High-energy forces and chemical outbursts reach toward the extermination of evidence of a biosphere. Low-energy uniform and gradual forces also tend to exterminate such evidence. The truth of the past thus remains for us in ... a model to consult in paleontology. But the field has not gone far beyond associating some life forms with some rock strata and not even this is done with full microscopy and chemistry on computerized data banks. The leading question, "How many species have existed at a given point in time, or ever, or even at a given place and point ... ,000 years ago. After much reading and discussion, I came to realize some years ago that there was no simple checklist of kinds of disaster- all the forces, chemicals, and conditions that can destroy the biosphere. But before I came to realize it, a long time passed when I could not even think of the need for one; ...

... brain necessarily be supplied by an increased input of hormones, which come from several places, or electrical charges, to transport messages. Nor do we know whether the electric and chemical signals will carry on with their former speed or will move less rapidly, unless some other factor increases their speed (which may, for example, be an electromagnetic change in ... output: so goes the contention. But we can postpone this matter until a later chapter. Freud and his associates could not come to close grips with psychosomatic humanization; the chemistry, biology and neurology were not available, then. They may not be now. Freud's reconstruction of the origin of conscience suffers from such basic flaws that one marvels at even ... distortions of reality, are commonly observed among persons who suffer from an excess of adrenalin either as a result of great fear and anxiety or in consequence of inadequate suppressive and discharging chemicals and mechanisms. Schizophrenia involves at least some separation of the 'primary' self from a second self, which includes part of the self and engages in profuse identifications with the outer ...

... particles where probability rules in place of matter, have for some time been working within the realms of metaphysics, the biologists have remained steadfast materialists. Life is completely explicable in chemical terms, they think, and the molecular biologist will eventually unlock all hidden secrets. Now one biologist, a Cambridge scholar and a Rosenheim Research Fellow of the Royal Society, ... /7/81). Sheldrake postulates that the development of an organism from egg or seed and its subsequent function and behaviour can no more be explained in terms of the chemistry of its genetic material alone than the picture on a television screen can be explained solely in terms of the wires and transistors behind it. Just as the television picture requires the ... living organisms require the directive of a "morphogenetic field'' which is present all around all organisms, but completely unperceived until translated into body form or behaviour by the genetic chemicals in each cell. The different genetic make-up of each species is the mechanism for fine tuning into a specific morphogenetic pattern, a process known as "morphic resonance", A ...

... chemistry students, who traditionally are not involved in cosmology and the history of civilization, it seemed that research in these areas was unrelated and certainly outside of the domain of the chemist. After reading your books, we found that your ideas add a dynamic dimension to these areas that we did not know existed. Your work has shown us that engineers and ... of North Carolina --Charlotte (December 6), and Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina (December 7). The Chapel Hill invitation was initiated by a group of graduate chemistry students. They wrote Velikovsky, back in November, 1972, explaining their purposes: "Recently the graduate students of this department have been discussing ways to improve the intellectual atmosphere ... work has shown us that engineers and scholars working along traditional lines, although they have accomplished much, have certainly not sewn it all up. We are wondering if, as chemists, we can become involved in these areas. We have tried to identify original thinkers whose work and methods we could study and whose ideas are new and not just reworking of ...
