211. The Electric Universe: Part I: Electrical Scarring [SIS Internet Digest $]
... . Indeed, Europa has some very unusual features, such as parallel cycloid patterns which would seem to indicate electrical activity. Venus also appears to be covered with electrical scars. The valley, Baltis Vallis is a 6800km rille of continuous width, and with signs of levied banks. There also appears to be a fulgamite (not fulgurite) scar, which has a characteristic raised mound. 'Fulgamite was coined by R. D. Hill in an article, "Determination of Charges Conducted in Lightning Strokes", in the Journal of Geophysical Research, Vol. 68, No. 5, p. 1365 (1 Mar 1963). Mars' Tharsis Tholus is an example of an electrical fulgamite scar. Mars also features fretted terrain, such as Labyrinthus Noctis which shows no signs of fluid flow, nor debris, and also shows overlapping circular pits. Nirgal Vallis is characteristic of a rille showing transverse ridges and transverse glass effects. And one wonders where the contents of Mars' Vallis Marineris went? Of course pictures of the Martian surface show it to be ...

214. Sun's Rays to Roast Earth [SIS Internet Digest $]
... 00.html Earth's magnetic field- the force that protects us from deadly radiation bursts from outer space- is weakening dramatically. Scientists have discovered that its strength has dropped precipitously over the past two centuries and could disappear over the next 1,000 years. [..'Earth's magnetic field has disappeared many times before- as a prelude to our magnetic poles flipping over, when north becomes south and vice versa,' said Dr Alan Thomson of the British Geological Survey in Edinburgh. [..But now Gauthier Hulot of the Paris Geophysical Institute has discovered Earth's magnetic field seems to be disappearing most alarmingly near the poles, a clear sign that a flip may soon take place. ...

... to rather advanced astronomical concepts that can not be accounted for as later revisions. They may be related with the mythology of the Egg-World. Data on the constellation's synchronous ascensions and crossing by the equinoxial and heavenly tropics might result from an ancient search at some Stonehenge-like observatories.

Krauss, M. Horányi and S. Robertson in American Geophysical Union, Fall Meeting 2002, abstract #P51A-0338. Due to the prevalence of Martian dust devils and dust storms, an understanding of the underlying physics of electrical discharges occurring in Martian dust is critical to future Mars exploratory missions. When dust particles come into contact, charge can be transferred between the grains. Wind driven dust studies (Weather, 1969) show that in the case of particles with identical compositions, the particle with the larger radius in a collision preferentially becomes positively charged. The stratification of particle sizes generated by ...
216. Saturn [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... intend to discuss in my book on the Deluge which point toward a sudden drop in oxygen content in the terrestrial atmosphere. But the fact that comets were observed consisting of water (ice), according to their spectral picture, permits the conclusion that water ? ready-made ? cae from the planetary ? nova.? Actually, in years subsequent to my concept of Worlds in Collision, water was identified as present on Saturn. Further, I assumed that sodium chloride, or common salt, is an ingredient of the Saturnian atmosphere. Geophysicists have long wondered as to the origin of salt in the ocean. Sodium could have been derived from terrestrial rocks; but they are poor in chlorine. To some extent chlorine in oceans could have come from volcanic eruptions but it would require eruptions on an almost unimaginable scale to produce all of the chlorine locked in the salt of the oceans. The ancient traditions of Deluge refer also to the water arriving from space as salty and warm. I have thought also of free chlorine (not combined into salt) on Saturn; ...

... to the other never induced the slightest displacement of the poles. And finally, the most important counter-argument concerns the mass and the form of the terrestrial crust: (4) ? The data secured from observations... of the transmission of seismic waves indicate that the earth is either solid thoughout with the rigidity of steel, or that it is solid to a distance approximately 2000 miles below sea-level, with the solid portions having a rigidity greater than that of steel... This seems to indicate a contradiction between isostasy and geophysical data.? (W. Bowie, ? Isostasy,? in Physics of the Earth, II, 104). The theory of isostasy was conceived in 1851 when J. H. Pratt found that the Himalayas do not deflect the plumb line as expected considering the mass of the mountains. It was assumed that the crust is thin and lighter than the magma and that every mountain has a mirror image protuberance immersed into the magma, thus the excess of the mass of the mountains is counterbalanced by a defect in the ...

... January 18, 1957 The Chairman Department of Physics Princeton University Dear Sir, A copy of a document is enclosed ? Tests and Measurements Proposed for Inclusion in the Program of the International Geophysical Year,? dated ? Princeton, Dec. 5, 1956,? and with the words ? From Velikovsky via H.H. Hess ? written at the end. This document was handed to me for comment after passing through so many hands that its origin is completely obscure to me. With reference to paragraph I, the measurement of the strength of the terrestrial magnetic field above the upper layers of the ionosphere is in the U.S. IGY program. At present five rockets are assigned to the experiment, and the third earth girdling satellite will carry magnetic equipment. With reference to paragraph 2, a study of lunar librations with geomagnetic pole movements is not included in the IGY program, but may possibly be done later after the IGY magnetic data are available. The other paragraphs 3 to 7 give suggested experiments which are not included in the U.S. IGY program. These ...

In this all year round retreat I hope to progress on several manuscripts.* I cooperate with Ralph Juergens on two manuscripts: 1) ? Poisoned Arrows ?- the arguments raised through the years against my work, mainly Worlds in Collision, and the answers in the light of 1977 (Order in the solar system and Stonehenge, Thera and local catastrophism, drifting continents as solution to geophysical changes, absence or presence of electromagnetic interactions in the solar system (and universe), solar or lunar eclipses before the seventh century before the present era, Venus ? movements in antiquity (? Ammizaduga Tablets ?) etc.). 2) ? Seventy Odd Ways ?, a review of the variety of techniques of suppression in science. Ralph spent 15 days in Princeton (May 21- June 5)* With Lynn Rose I cooperate in preparing a historically true and complete account of the Symposium ? Velikovsky ? s ...
220. The Pre-Adamite Age [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... lived, was wiped away from the memory of the few survivors. The talmudic-rabbinical tradition believes that before Adam was created, the world was more than once inhabited and more than once destroyed. It was at the end of the first age, symbolized by the expulsion of man from the blessed Garden of Eden, that the moon lost its brightness. (2) It was not just a single human pair the tradition ascribes to Adam the invention of seventy languages. Hebrew mythology assigns to the period preceding Adam ? s expulsion different geophysical and biological conditions. The sun shone permanently on the Earth, and the Garden of Eden, placed in the East, was, it must be conceived, under perpetual rays of the Dawn. The earth was not watered by rain, but mist ascending from the ground condensed as dew upon the leaves. ? The plants looked only to the earth for nourishment.? Man was of exceedingly great stature: ? The dimensions of man ? s body were gigantic.? His appearance was unlike that of later men: ? ...
