91. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 5 .99, New Scientist 7.8 .99, pp. 26-31 An electrically charged plasma sheet rotates around Jupiter, coupled to the rotation of the planet, it is suggested, by a kind of electromagnetic friction. Ion winds known as electrojets, moving at thousands of miles per hour, blow in oval patterns where the polar auroras meet Jupiter's upper atmosphere. Friction between these winds and the rest of the atmosphere may explain why the temperature of the upper atmosphere is several hundred degrees higher than would be expected from direct heating from the Sun. The Great Red Spot, however, may be explained by the complexity of turbulence modelling. There's more out there than meets ...
92. Archetypes Showing The Presence of Anomalous Electromagnetic Activity [Journals] [SIS Review]
... and tail is to partially absorb excessive waves of electromagnetic radiation, perhaps of solar origin. However, too rapid buildups of plasma in the Earth's magnetosphere and tail may cause a spillage of this plasma into parts of the Earth's atmosphere. We know this occurs today, especially at solar maximum, when excess plasma causes more spectacular displays of the aurora in the terrestrial ionosphere. However the visibility of apparently larger sun spots in the past suggests enhanced solar activity may have led to even greater plasmic spillage and hence an even greater increase in electrical activity and subsequent births of magnetic fields ever closer to the earth. We have seen examples of plasmoidal fire balls. Were other phenomena visible as ...
93. The Importance of Outsiders in Science [Journals] [SIS Review]
... enlist French help for the American Revolution. After independence he became President of Pennsylvania and worked to abolish slavery. A polymath, he taught himself Spanish, French, Italian and Latin; mapped the Gulf Stream; invented such things as bifocal spectacles and the lightning conductor; proved that lightning is a form of electricity. He also recognised the Aurora Borealis as an electrical phenomenon and speculated on the existence of the ionosphere. Antoine Laurent Lavoisier (1743-1794), occupation tax collector. He is famous as a chemist, naming the part of air used in combustion oxygen' and destroying the then-prevalent theory of phlogiston. He demonstrated that water is a compound of hydrogen and oxygen; that ...
94. The Cosmic String of Pearls [Journals] [Aeon]
... feature these divine beings as superimposed on each other to form a "string," and one wonders why the pattern as such has never been recognised before? The string of pearls is frequently located in space. Not only is it often imagined to be at the polar axis, but it was widely believed that the Milky Way, the auroras, the zodiac, or the tail of a comet, consisted of such a string of pearls. We should note that all these instances attest to the divergent symbolic expression of a single visual prototype. The string of pearls is invariably associated with the morphology and mythology of the world axis, constituting the segmented phase of the axis. ...
95. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... New methods of measuring the strength of the Earth's past magnetic field reveals that it was three times stronger than it is now when the dinosaurs were around. Sound From Space New Scientist 6.1 .01, pp. 14-19 Noisy meteors are mentioned in the Bible and there are plenty of modern reports of sounds heard from both meteors and auroras. It is suggested that it must be due to electromagnetic radiation in the form of very low frequency radio waves which are turned into sound by a variety of transducers such as wires, pine needles or even the listener's dry hair. The radio waves could be produced by turbulent plasmas. Lightning Causes Earthquakes New Scientist 30.6 . ...
96. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... false interpretations have there been over the years? By Jove New Scientist, 2.3 .02, p. 9 There is still no explanation for why Jupiter's magnetic field is so much more powerful than Earth's and now it has been ascertained that the field extends much further out into space than previously thought. It has massive and extensive auroras which appear to pulsate regularly in certain places like nothing ever seen on Earth. Effects on Earth New Scientist, 15.6 .02, p. 6, 16.3 .02, p. 19, 9.2 .02, p. 6 The supposed 100,000 year ice age cycle on Earth does not ...
97. Trisms and Planetary Iconography [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... the top of the head, the central figure, and can be generated naturally, in the form of geomagnetic lines of force, as in Figure 15, below. Figure 15, is my depiction of how the magnetic field of the Earth would be seen if viewed from space, assuming that the field's lines of force were visible as auroras. Note that, at the North Magnetic Pole, the lines begin to diverge in opposite directions- in effect copying the configuration of a trism- as seen at the top of the demon in Figure 14. In comparing the pattern of the demon's hair with the pattern of the lines of force, I realized that they are alike. In ...
98. Solar System Studies (Part 2) [Journals] [Aeon]
... above. A Solar Wind of positive ions streams past Earth and is largely diverted by Earth's magnetosphere, which is highly compressed toward Earth on its Sun side but tails out in Earth's shadow for 13 Gm. An inner Van Allen belt traps protons and an outer Van Allen belt traps electrons diverting them toward Earth's polar regions. These create the Aurorae Borealis and Australis which, photographed from space, resemble the Greek letter theta. It is likely that these electromagnetic effects provide the external field needed. If the Earth has been motored to spin at its present spin rate by agent(s ) no longer close to our planet, the externally induced spin referred to above is also furnished ...
... wager that Worlds in Collision is a calculated attempt to mislead the scientists and the public.  And how could the astronomers be so certain, when so many things were left unexplained by their existing theories? When there existed no satisfactory explanations for the behavior of comets, for the roundness of the sun, for the influences on auroras and radio reception of strongly charged particles from the sun? How could astronomers be so sure that there never had been and never could be comets as large as Venus, simply because one had not recently been observed by scientists? . Velikovsky went further, charging that as the years passed science was incorporating his ideas without ...
