71. Stellar Spectra [Journals] [Aeon]
... complexity of an element's spectrum depends upon how clustered the available energy states are and how they split in electric and magnetic fields- Stark and Zeeman broadening. In addition, anomalous components can arise because, in some elements (particularly beryllium, magnesium, and calcium- where two electrons with similar energies are available), double electron transmissions allow ... of heavy elements are only slightly affected relative to those of lighter atoms and ions. Attributing the anomalous line widths of the lighter atoms to the Stark effect helps explain an anomaly noted in the B-type stars (the so-called Helium stars). Here the l 4471.6 Angstrom line is accompanied by a forbidden partner at l 4469.9 ...
72. Thoth Vol I, No. 19: July 16, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... "long-haired star". (Thus the Greek _pogonias_, the beard-star, means "comet".) While a bearded serpent is a biological absurdity, the anomalous beard is immediately explained if the Venusian serpent is a long-haired star or comet. If the celestial beard did not mirror a comet-like form in the sky, then the ... serpent is one more anomaly left unanswered, despite a consistent pattern that seems to cry out for recognition. To keep all of this in perspective it needs to be remembered that Quetzalcoatl- whose heart-soul became the plumed serpent- was himself the white and bearded god, with many counterparts spread across pre-Columbian America- one more anomaly to add to the equation. ...
73. Scientific Evidence for A Major World Catastrophe About 11,500 Years Ago: A Preliminary Selection [Journals] [SIS Review]
... is now discontinuous. They are at present restricted to parts of Africa, Russian Europe and South America . Cumberland Cave in Maryland is another which has yielded anomalous faunal remains. Some of the identified species were distinctly southern' (Lower Austral) forms but others were typically northern' (Boreal) . Yet ... of the bone-caves at Santa Lucia in Brazil  and only moa remains were found in some New Zealand caves . Bone caves also contain other faunistic anomalies. One repeating pattern concerns the remains of animals which could never have prospered in the regions where the caves now exist. Thus, in caves at Choukoutien, near ...
74. The Saturn Theory [Journals] [SIS Review]
... c . 1987). The eventual triumph of the Martian meteorite hypothesis is yet another example of the leading paradigms of the Scientific Age being instantly overturned by a series of anomalous findings . Such examples could be multiplied ad infinitum. Science, much like religion, proves to be notoriously malleable in this regard: what is considered ... or fantastic by one generation might well come to be accepted by future generations unencumbered by similar prejudices. A fifth basic tenet of the Saturn theory is that recurring anomalies in ancient myth and tradition offer a key to discovery. It is most unlikely that one culture would invent traditions of fire-breathing dragons (or witches) that once threatened to eclipse ...
75. Mars in Upheaval [Journals] [Aeon]
... Hellas basin- the largest known crater basin in the solar system. (26) According to Carr, "No matter what its origin, the Tarsis region is clearly anomalous and various suggestions have been made for the primary cause." (27) The fact of the matter is that Tarsis is too massive to remain at its present ... explanation for the fact that it is still standing so high above the surface is that Tarsis formed quite recently and is presently sinking. As on the Moon, "gravitational anomalies [on Mars] are strongly correlated with topographic features." (29) At the AAAS Symposium held in San Francisco in 1974, didn't Velikovsky point out that ...
... , the connection with both the old and the new years is indicated by the appendages below the chin. It is apparent from the above that Passages VII and XIII are anomalous and do not fit into the symbolism with the appositeness which should result in a theoretically faultless scheme. Yet this anomaly, as also that in respect of the lunations ... to in Chapter 7, is a factor in favour of the interpretation given. These anomalies, with their possibility of leading to a wrong interpretation, were undoubtedly recognized by the makers of the Calendar, who therefore provided unmistakable indications to the correct interpretation, even though a certain inconsistency results, such as, for example, Passage XIII, ...
77. The Albrecht/Glueck-Aharoni/Rothenberg Confrontation [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... introduced an upsetting factor to the retainment of this long-held view. The setting of the event in the same era as that of the mining operations in the Negeb is grossly anomalous. When Glueck placed these mining operations in Iron II, much of the weight of his argument rested on the biblical evidence requiring Israelite control of the territory at this ... . At this point we are content to note the existence of the error on the part of all participants in the discussion. VII. The Entrance in the Negeb an Anomaly In a previous section the investigations of Aharoni in the northern Negeb were reviewed. The deviations in his proposals from the popular views relative to the Israelite entrance were noted ...
78. On Models and Scenarios [Journals] [Aeon]
... achieved even a first step in this direction. 3. Ancient statements appearing to contradict elementary experience or logic are a key to discovery. No one is surprised on encountering anomalous and irrational aspects of myth- in fact we have come to think of myth as a collection of irrationalities. But when essentially the same incongruity recurs from one land ... hence, one begins to realize that the symbolism may not be as irrational as previously assumed. It should go without saying that ancient sources are filled with similar, recurring anomalies. What the polar configuration adds is a series of predicted and highly specific symbolic equations, and these testable equations can make sense out of what otherwise appears as absurdity ...
79. Unorthodox Science: past, present and future [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... one or more of the well-established scientific disciplines. These topics will relate to: Phenomena within scientific paradigms but at variance with current scientific knowledge. Scientific methods used to study anomalous phenomena. Impact of anomalous phenomena on science and society in general. Among the speakers are scientists who study anomalous phenomena as well as sceptics. The following Invited Speakers ... scholars have been invited to speak on the theme: Unorthodox Science: past, present and future'. A range of topics will be discussed dealing with unusual phenomena and anomalies outside the current paradigms of one or more of the well-established scientific disciplines. These topics will relate to: Phenomena within scientific paradigms but at variance with current scientific knowledge ...
... is difficult to find anything analogous in the agency of inferior beings; for we ought always, before we decide that any part of the influence of man is novel and anomalous, carefully to consider the powers of all other animated agents which may be limited or superseded by him.* Many who have reasoned on these subjects seem to have ... by the animate creation, the progress of some races being retarded by unfavorable, and that of others accelerated by favorable, combinations of circumstances. Hence, all kinds of anomalies interrupt the continuity of the plan ; and chasms, into which whole genera or families might be inserted, are seen to separate the nearest existing portions of the series ...
