31. Stars, Galaxies and Electro-Gravitic Theory [Aeon Journal $]
... proportion be somewhat different. (1) Thus, if one star in a binary system is three times a certain number of magnitudes brighter than its companion, then one of the stars will be three times more massive than its partner. This relationship is in full accord with electro-gravitic theory in that the brightness of a star is a fairly good indicator of its repulsive field. Thus intrinsically brighter stars require either a larger companion or must themselves be large to attract and hold a companion. This observed systematic relationship should not exist if gravity were the only force responsible for the production and maintenance of binary systems. The absolute magnitudes of stars should have nothing to do with binary systems because gravitational theory would allow any two stars, regardless of luminosity and mass, to become partners. Furthermore, there is a systematic difference in the orbits of binary stars, another indicator that gravity is not the only force governing their behavior. We have stated that binary stars of equal mass follow highly circular orbits while stars of greatly unequal mass have highly elliptical orbits. One may ...

33. Canepa: Book Review [Aeon Journal $]
... over 1200 references, remains an indispensable tool for the serious researcher. A third review, by Paul Weisman of JPL, in Icarus (91:335), was devastating. Unlike the others, Weisman found the volume tedious and boring. He claims that the reader has to struggle through the rambling text and could not decide for whom the book is intended. The uninitiated, he believes, will easily get lost. He especially zeroes in on giant comets, galactic periodicities, interstellar capture, and new physics (" variable gravity") as some of the authors' "highly speculative and controversial ideas." Galactic periodicities and interstellar capture are viable possibilities. I, personally, did not come across a reference to "variable gravity." What the authors do state on page 259 is: The effects of the galactic tide, as with any other tidal perturbation, are essentially produced by the varying intensity of the gravitational force at the position of the sun compared with the comet. In other words, a comet slightly displaced from the sun feels ...
34. Vox Popvli [Aeon Journal $]
... (hence the myth of the birth of Venus from Jupiter). Venus would have thus come out of this grazing impact in a very hot state and comet-like. Saturn, too, would have lost a lot of its original mass in interactions with the same Jupiter. Velikovsky was also of the opinion that Saturn's initial mass had to have been much greater, perhaps as great as that of Jupiter. [7 At some future date, we will return to the model and apply a greater mass to Saturn. The Speed of Gravity& High-Velocity Impacts Mike Twose, from Toronto, Ontario, writes: In the Forum section of AEON V:5, Tim Thompson, from JPL NASA, wrote that the speed of gravity is the same as the speed of light. [8 I cannot think of an experiment that would show how fast gravity travels through space or through objects. Perhaps NASA or JPL have found a way to measure it that I have not heard about. I hope that Thompson will tell us how it was done. Personally, I ...
35. Velikovsky like theory of gravity and magnetism [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1996:1 Home¦ Issue Contents Newsgroups: talk.origins Velikovsky like theory of gravity and magnetism From: R Sansbury, email@example.com Date: Sat, 17 Jun 95 10:30:31 -0500 The standard dynamo explanation of the earth's magnetic fields has never been verified in terms of measurements of sufficient properly oriented separated and connected currents inside the molten iron core of the earth. Such currents could explain the magnetic field of the earth if they were in the form of a coil connected to rotating conductive cross section discs of the iron core sphere in such a way that the magnetic field of the current carrying coil induces a potential difference between the centres and the rims of the rotating discs above the coil sufficient to drive such a current across the discs and through the coil. The apparent impossibility of explaining galactic magnetic fields in such Terms (Sci. Amer Jan 95) suggests such explanations including the recently restored iron core explanation are inappropriately parochial. Although too hot to be magnetic in its usual lattice structure another possible structure of ...
36. What is the Electric Universe? [Thunderbolts Website]
... A. Hajian (USNO) et al., Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA), NASA Credit (below): Wal Thornhill, Anthony L. Peratt 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 Sep 24, 2004 What is the Electric Universe? The "Electric Universe" is a hypothesis, a new way of interpreting scientific data in the light of new knowledge about plasma and electricity. In this interpretation, gravity plays a secondary role behind the far more powerful electric force, and electrified plasma in the laboratory provides a model for comprehending newly-discovered phenomena in space. As laboratory plasma "pinches" into filaments, sheets, and cells, or isolates charged bodies from their electrical environment, it provides vital clues. In plasma, electric currents will sort material into shells of like elements, or generate discharge configurations --ranging from radial streamers and spiraling filaments to exotic symmetrical configurations --all appearing to mimic what we now see in faraway corners of the cosmos ...
37. Thomas Townsend Brown [SIS Internet Digest $]
... interested in Brown's discovery, and together the two of them, professor and student, experimenting with charged electrical capacitors, developing a principle of physics which came to be tentatively known as the "Biefeld-Brown Effect." The "effect" concerned the observed tendency of a highly charged electrical condenser to exhibit motion toward its positive pole-- the same motion observed earlier by Brown with his Coolidge tube. Even establishment science does not question the patently obvious relationship between electricity and magnetism, but the relationship of these two fields to the "gravity field" constitutes an area physics, which, more than twenty years after Einstein's death, is still largely incomprehensible to modern science. In general, most of orthodox science in the seventies does tend to recognize a loose linking or "coupling" effect of some sort between electrical and gravitational forces, but precious few scientists have seen fit to speculate that this coupling effect might be at all applicable. Brown firmly believes there is a linking force between gravity and electricity. Whether there may be a further connection between magnetism and gravity ...
38. Reply to Earl Milton [Aeon Journal $]
... The Solar System and Electro-Gravitic Theory." This generous consideration on his part to someone whose work stands in at least partial opposition to his own is greatly respected and appreciated. Some of this material has been duly incorporated in that paper (the foregoing article) with appropriate citation. In his published criticism, however, Milton's major objection boils down to the contention that I have not faced up to Coulomb's law, which shows that electromagnetic repulsion is at best a feeble force on the planets in the Solar System, when compared to gravity. The formula is devastating to the electromagnetic interactions that I propose. Nevertheless, there is evidence that solar electromagnetic energy affects the Earth and bodies on it in spite of Coulomb's law. James Warwick's calculations appeared to refute Velikovsky's conclusion regarding magnetic stars based on these same considerations that Milton now raises. As shown in AEON 1: 2, pp. 79-80, there is observed evidence that appears to deny Warwick's conclusion. E.J. Saxl carried out many experiments with charged pendulums, one of these conducted during an eclipse of the ...
39. Saxl's Pendulum Convection of Electric Charge Revisited [Aeon Journal $]
... whose work can still predict the motion of the Earth around the Sun to an accuracy of 1 part in 100 million will not be superseded. David Hughes, New Scientist, 4 February 1989, p.67, in a review of Let Newton Be!-- John Fauvel, editor. Summary Ginenthal's electro-gravitic theory is seen to be unfounded. The evidence he cites for support has no bearing on the theory. The work of E. J. Saxl that originally motivated Ginenthal's theory is shown to be fatally flawed and unsuited for studying gravity. The electrical interaction between Sun and planets posited by Ginenthal cannot occur because of the isolating effects of space charge sheaths on charged bodies in a plasma, which R. E. Juergens first discussed in 1972 in Pensee II. While the convection of electric charge, also first discussed by Juergens in Pensee VII, is a likely explanation for Saxl's anomalous results, it cannot account for millisecond changes in Earth's rotation because impossibly large electric charge is required. Magnetic Field Predictions In replying to a recent challenge from Samuel Windsor, Charles ...
