The following description of the Butterfly Nebula appears on the Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) for Feb. 1, 2004:. "Are stars better appreciated for their art after they die? Actually, stars usually create their most artistic displays as they die. In the case of low-mass stars like our Sun and M2-9 pictured above, the stars transform themselves from normal stars to white dwarfs by casting off their outer gaseous envelopes. The expended gas frequently forms an impressive display called a planetary nebula that fades gradually ...

It has the impressive meaning of "ultra-luminous" or "beyond bright". In at least two categories, this superlative is a distortion caused by the theoretical interpretation of observations rather than a direct description of observations. Take the case of ULIRGs-- Ultra Luminous Infra Red Galaxies. Arp 220, pictured above, is the brightest of the ULIRGs. (Astronomer Halton Arp compiled the Catalogue of Peculiar Galaxies, in which this object is number 220.) The standard interpretation calculates its distance by the amount its spectral lines are shifted toward longer wavelengths (redshift). To be this bright ...
53. The Cosmology Of Tawantinsuyu [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. IX No. 2 (Winter 1984) Home¦ Issue Contents The Cosmology Of Tawantinsuyu Jan N. Sammer See also Note (1). The traditional view of Inca religion was built chiefly on the writings of Garcilaso de la Vega, Bartolome de las Casas, and Pedro Cieza de Leon. In the Commentarios Reales of the hispanicized Inca nobleman, Garcilaso de la Vega, the cult of the Sun is portrayed as supreme. The chief temple in Cuzco, the Coricancha, is said to have been dedicated to the Sun (II.9) with similar Sun-temples scattered throughout the provinces; the Inca rulers allegedly prided themselves on being descended from the Sun. The sacrifices to the Sun are described at length (II.8). While Garcilaso makes mention of the deus otiosus Pachacamac, and includes a passing reference to Viracocha, we learn almost nothing of the real nature of these divinities. Bartolome de las Casas, the great defender of the Indians, comes closer to the truth when he portrays the solar cult as an outgrowth of the ...
54. Halton Arp: A Modern-Day Galileo [Thunderbolts Website]
... home updates news and views picture of the day resources team a role for you contact us home pic of the day archive subject index abstract archive Links: Holoscience Electric Cosmos The Universe Plasma Cosmology Society for Interdisciplinary Studies educational resources Aeon Journal Halton Arp's wonderful book Seeing Red is a must read since it is both educational and hard-hitting while being readable and entertaining. Writing eye-opening material in more than one arena, Arp takes on the corruption of good science in academia, government and publishing after giving us great material concerning red shift, the Big Bang, and cosmology. The book Seeing Red can be ordered via the link. Order Link Nov 01, 2004 Halton Arp: A Modern Day Galileo Halton Arp is to the 21st century what Galileo was to the 17th. Both were respected scientists, popular leaders in their field. Both made observations which contradicted the accepted theories. Seventeenth century academics felt threatened by Galileo's observations and so, backed by ecclesiastical authority, they ordered him to stop looking. Twentieth century astronomers felt threatened by Arp's observations and so, backed ...
55. Another Active Ejecting Galaxy [Thunderbolts Website]
... home updates news and views picture of the day resources team a role for you contact us Credit: Gerald Cecil UNC/Chapel Hill et al., NASA home pic of the day archive subject index abstract archive Links: Holoscience Electric Cosmos The Universe Plasma Cosmology Society for Interdisciplinary Studies educational resources Aeon Journal Oct 26, 2004 Another Active Ejecting Galaxy A common characteristic of the spiraling Birkeland currents in a plasma discharge is that they flare out at the top. They appear first as horns or a crescent atop the pillar of the most intense part of the discharge. Often matter will accumulate along the axis as well, making the horns appear as a trident. Occasionally, three or four or more currents will produce multiple filaments flaring away from each other. The flaring filaments above the center of NGC 3079 (image above) illustrate this behavior. They are evidence of a galactic-scale thunderbolt discharging its energy in the core below. Because that thunderbolt is only part of an electrical circuit that encompasses the entire galaxy, we would expect to see signs of excitation in ...

It is an electric event, perhaps the explosion of a double layer in a galactic circuit. The aurora-like curtains and filaments seen have more in common with electric currents in plasma than with mechanical models based on acoustic shocks. The Cygnus Loop is thought to be a middle-aged remnant of a nearby supernova, the collapse of a star whose nuclear fuel has been used up. From a plasma cosmology point of view, a supernova has nothing to do with the hypothetical nuclear engine. It is an electric event, perhaps the explosion of a double ...
57. Quasar redshift clusters and (even worse) multiple redshifts [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 84: Nov-Dec 1992 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects QUASAR REDSHIFT CLUSTERS AND (EVEN WORSE) MULTIPLE REDSHIFTS At the XIIIth Krakow Summer School of Cosmology, September 7-12, 1992, many of the world's top cosmologists experienced the disorientation that accompanies both earthquakes and shifting paradigms. Two of many cosmoseisms felt during the meeting in Poland are recorded below: "Halton Arp, Max-Planck Institute for Astrophysics, spoke about his "Variable Mass" cosmology. He pointed out the need for cosmologies to explain why quasar redshifts cluster near 0.3, 0.6..., with the grouping just below z= 1.2 dominating all others; and why certain classes of stars have significant excess redshifts. He also pointed out the inconsistency that local galaxy groups seem to have velocity dispersions of less than 100 km/s, while distant groups seem to have members with dispersions up to 1000 km/s. "Jack Sulentic spoke about multiple redshifts seen in some quasars and AGNs. Line profiles come ...
58. Music And Theories Of Everything [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 94: Jul-Aug 1994 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Music And Theories Of Everything Warning: We never promised that Science Frontiers would be easy or even compatible with your world view! Furthermore, archeology is more than shards and arrowheads. Today's physicists enjoy speculating about Theories of Everything, but they really don't nean everything! They just mean physics and cosmology. Some 5,000 years ago, the Sumerians constructed a remarkable Theory of Everything based upon music, a base-60 number system, and symmetry concepts. These Sumerians didn't have supercomputers but they were able to incorporate into their theory much more than physics and cosmology. Below, E.G. McClain provides some insight into ancient Sumerian thinking: "In ancient Mesopotania,music, mathematics, art, science, religion, and poetic fantasy were fused. Around 3000 B.C., the Sumerians simultaneously developed cuneiform writing, in which they recorded their pantheon, and a base-60 number system. Their gods were assigned numbers that encoded the ...
59. preview [Thunderbolts Website]
... how complicated and counter-intuitive the concepts of modern astrophysics are becoming. Even so, until recently, I assumed that astronomers and astrophysicists knew what they were talking about. Now – I ’ m sure they do not. It was when astrophysicists began saying things that I, as an electrical engineer, knew were wrong that I began to have serious doubts about their pronouncements. But I agonized over whether those doubts were legitimate. Even though my life-long avocation has been amateur astronomy, my formal background is in engineering – not astronomy or cosmology. Earning a doctorate in electrical engineering eventually led to my teaching that subject at a major university for thirty-nine years. What troubled me most was when astrophysicists began saying things about magnetic fields that any of my junior-year students could show were completely incorrect. If astrophysicists were saying things that were demonstrably wrong in my area of expertise, could it be that they were making similar mistakes in their own field as well? I began to investigate more of the pronouncements of modern astrophysicists and the reasoning behind them. This book is an ...
60. The Electric Universe [SIS C&C Review $]
... , on a number of related projects. Summary The Electric Universe model forms a coherent new view of the universe. It highlights repeated electrical patterns at all scales that enable laboratory experiments to explain the strange energetic events seen, for example, in deep space, on the Sun and on Jupiter's moon, Io. The model follows Hannes Alfvén's entreaty for scientists to work backwards from observations rather than forward from some idealised theoretical beginning. The Electric Universe takes full account of the basic electrical nature of atoms and their interactions. In conventional cosmology, it is the weaker magnetism and the almost infinitely weak force of gravity which rule the cosmos. The Electric Universe grew out of an interdisciplinary approach to science and the realisation that a new plasma cosmology and an understanding of electrical phenomena in space could illuminate work being done in comparative mythology. By using information from a wide span of human existence and knowledge, the Electric Universe can provide answers to many questions that seem unrelated. For example, records of the prehistoric sky can help unravel the recent history of the planets and ...
