72. Thoth Vol. VI, No 1 Jan 15, 2002 [Thoth Website]
... overwhelmed all doubt. No one thought about error probes or alternate assumptions. Then Einstein invented the mechanics of relativity. His idea was based on geometry instead of on influences. It explained more phenomena with greater accuracy than Newton's mechanics, but it wasn't as simple to use. Now there were two edifices of theoretical truth. Still, they shared the fundamental assumption that the primary quality of the universe was mass. A third contender arose over a century ago which replaced the assumption of mass with the assumption of charge. Instead of gravity influencing or geometrizing the cosmos, electricity was driving it. Plasma mechanics is a shocking error probe that has received only gradual and grudging attention. As a solution to the problem of cosmology-explaining the structures and motions of the universe-it's certainly more comprehensive than either Newton's or Einstein's mechanics: It can explain similarities of structure over 14 orders of magnitude as homologues to laboratory phenomena. It's conceptually simpler: The discoveries of the space age have surprised both Newton and Einstein, resulting in a proliferation of ad hoc adjustments. Plasma physics can explain ...
73. Kinetic Theory, Gravity, and Critical Fog [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon V:4 (July 1999) Home¦ Issue Contents Out of the attic (II)... Kinetic Theory, Gravity, and Critical Fog George R. Talbott "Real scientists" are characterized by their ability to perform competent laboratory measurements, fine mathematical deductions, meaningful research; and they have the ability to appreciate ideas. A "real scientist" tries to understand. One may select a dependable political associate by what and whom he hates, but this will not do in selecting a dependable scientist. Immanuel Velikovsky never lost the sunny assumption that he was dealing with reasonable people, a peculiar optimism for one as accomplished as he was in psychiatry. So he entered debates and wrote books with the expectation of a fair hearing, evidently unaware of the existence of self-styled "educators" who, like TV talk-show hosts, seem to enjoy defaming anyone or anything. Scientific discourse and criticism in a quality research center are wholly different from the shameless mouthing of the likes of Henry Bauer. His attacks on Velikovsky are said to ...
74. SHARP Drive [Alternative Science Website]
... the so-called 'zero-point field'. This suggestion was taken up by astrophysicist Bernhard Haisch of Lockheed's Research Laboratories and physicists Alfonso Rueda, a professor at California State University at Long Beach, and Harold Puthoff of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Austin Their article 'Inertia as a Zero-Point Field Lorentz Force' appeared in the February 1, 1994 issue of the eminent journal Physical Review A, and it offered a radically new interpretation of the origin of the strange quality of inertia. This new concept of inertia also points to a new understanding of gravity, since gravity and inertia are inextricably intertwined. Hal Putoff goes even further. Pointing to recent success in manipulating atomic processes by controlling zero-point fields in the lab, Puthoff says "If we are right that both gravity and inertia stem from the zero-point field, then someday we might be able to manipulate both." This, In turn, means quite simply a warp drive. And Puthoff's idea is not merely a twinkle in physics's eye. In 1994 Miguel Alcubierre, a theoretical physicist at the University of Wales published a ...
75. Plasma: The other 99.9% [Thunderbolts Website]
... the universe. Did you know... 1. Plasmas are formed by adding energy to gas, causing it to ionize (an atom looses one or more electrons). For example, if hydrogen ionizes, it produces equal numbers of negatively charged electrons and positive ions (in this case, protons). Even a one percent ionized gas may be considered to be a plasma, and have the properties of a fully ionized plasma. 2. Plasmas are affected by electromagnetic forces 10 39 times greater than the force of gravity. So strong is its influence that it creates the ballerina's skirt shaped heliospheric current sheet (see diagram), the largest structure in the Solar System, extending out beyond the orbit of Pluto. 3. Plasma is not always electrically neutral. In general it is quasi-neutral, meaning that localized regions of charge separation may occur. And objects that comes into contact with a plasma will charge negatively, such as dust, spacecraft and the surface of the Moon. 4. Plasma is a better conductor of electricity than copper. ...
76. Electric Meteorites? [Thunderbolts Website]
... ' chilly ground. It looks like many similar meteorites discovered on the warm soils of Earth. It's familiar. We know nearly all that can be known about it. It's not scientifically interesting. Opportunity took a few photos and some samples for future analysis, and then it returned to its examination of the fallen heat shield. But "all that can be known" depends not only on the nature of the object to be known but also on the awareness of the knower. The knowledge of meteors arises from an understanding of gravity and friction, of solids and gasses. As we become aware that 99 percent of the universe is plasma, the insight is born that astronomical bodies might obey the laws of electricity instead of gravity. When we become aware that plasma self-organizes into filaments and cells, the possibility is born that new knowledge might arise from the understanding of circuits and discharges. The question is no longer "Do we have an explanation?" but "Do we have an explanation that takes plasma into account?" Plasma circuits flow between galaxies ...
77. Venus and the River Styx [Thunderbolts Website]
... structures carved by terrestrial water goes quite deep. We see fanlike river deltas, meanders, and bars, and places where streams have flooded their banks.“ On Venus, where it is far too hot for liquid water, perhaps a stream of lava with the right chemical composition could flow like a river. We have had to use a lot of imaginative physics and chemistry to come up with a suitable model.“ Topographical analysis of the flow paths produced a puzzling result: some of them seem to flow uphill! Since gravity is gravity on any planet, the ground in these places must have shifted since the time the rivers ran.” Grinspoon ’ s commentary shows how strained the Earth-centered analogies become. There is little evidence of damage to the channel that would be expected from ground movements sufficient to cause kilometer height changes. And with all of the strange tributary channels we should expect to see a progressive widening of the main channel. But no widening is evident. The channel is more simply explained as a surface cosmic lightning channel --a thunderbolt. ...
78. The Absurdity of Neutron Stars [SIS Internet Digest $]
... use of the plasma focus effect. The Electric Universe model assumes that Nature knows best. It does not require strange matter or a strange star. The x-ray pulses are caused by regular electric discharges between two or more orbiting, normally constituted, electrically charged bodies. It is a manifestation of a periodic arc instead of a spinning star. If beaming of the radiation is occurring then that should be verifiable here on Earth in the lab by studying the plasma focus device. The Electric Universe model lets go of the Newtonian dogma that gravity is the driving force in the cosmos. It allows for the possibility that the fundamental characteristic of normal matter- its electric charge- plays the most significant role. So if gravity wave telescopes detect anything at all, it won't be gravity waves from super-heavy objects. And particle physicists who are trying to work out how the universe was constructed from strange matter early in the Big Bang are wasting their time. The astronomer Halton Arp, author of the Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies, has conclusively disproven the theory of an expanding universe ...
79. Evidence for the Extreme Youth of Venus [SIS C&C Review $]
... chapters of the interaction between an errant, cometary Venus and other planets of the Solar System and its final settlement into a highly regular, planetary orbit about the Sun. At most it hints at the parturition of one of the gas giant planets to form the new planet Venus. The implications of such a late and spectacular event in the Solar System are profound. It will be difficult to contemplate by those who have built the current cosmogonic consensus. That consensus is built upon ad hoc additions to centuries-old ideas. It relies on gravity as the aggregating force acting over millions of years upon widely dispersed material to form the Solar System. Clearly, in the current steady state of the Solar System, gravitational theory seems to predict planet orbits accurately. Not only does the clockwork certainty make life easier for the mathematicians but it also makes the world seem safe. However, reality has a way of being much more complex than mathematical models: there is evidence, in particular from the behaviour of comets, that non-gravitational forces are also at work in the Solar System ...
80. Noah's Flood: Mars Flyby [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... which these three functioned in concert, each narrowing the distance between the two planets. The dating of the Noah Flood flyby is not intrinsic to Figure 1, but that aspect is of great importance. While Mars was (momentarily) 14,700 miles from the Earth at its perigee (core to core), the closest surface of Mars was about 8700 miles from Tibet, the region directly under Mars at the perigee for about 10 minutes. On this closest surface of the Earth to Mars, the Tibet region, the gravity of Mars pulling upward was 15 percent as powerful as was the gravity of the Earth pulling downward, according to Windsor's calculations. The sudden, massive pull of Mars' gravity explains why the Tibetan Plateau was uplifted at this flyby time-- including the Himalayas, the Trans-Himalayas, the Kun Luns, the Tien Shans, the Nan Shans, and the Hindu Kish ranges. The Himalayas, on the southern flank of this uplift region, 1400 miles long, were upthrusted in less than 30 catastrophic minutes (not 150 million ...
