11. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS C & C Review 2004:1 Incorporating Workshop 2004:2 (May 2004) Home | Issue Contents News from the Internet In December 2003, an article quietly appeared in the IEEE publication Transactions on Plasma Science called "Characteristics for the Occurrence of a High-Current, Z-Pinch Aurora as recorded in Antiquity" by Dr Anthony L. Peratt, from Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM. The article concludes that petroglyphs (or rock art) often represent a plasma "instability" that Peratt sees in his laboratory, and must have been seen by ancient man in the skies. Peratt's research was inspired by Dave Talbott, author the Saturn Myth, ...

... comet. Some six or seven thousand years ago that comet had been changed, by God's decision, into a planet .. .2 5 Immanuel Kant went further than that: Kant reasoned that planets would have tails if they contained the same high percentage of light, fine, readily attenuated matter as comets did. Indeed, the earth's aurora borealis was formed in the same way as a comet's tail, and Saturn's ring was evidence that the outlying planet had once been a comet toasted by the sun during earlier perihelion passages.2 6 The comparison of the earth's aurora with the tail of a comet is a very fortunate one. Insofar as both comet tails and the auroras ...
... centre may be imagined far more accurately as a gigantic dynamo, which is the operating cause that creates its diurnal revolution at the rate of 1 039 miles per hour, and thereby generating electricity or magnetism on an enormous scale. At a certain distance from the Poles, which act as conductors, this electricity is to be seen as the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), where this great stream is collected and enters our earth at the Poles. The Auroras shine occasionally as luminous clouds but yellowish or greenish white in colour. Others form brilliant arches of light, their ends resting on the horizon, their summits about 30 degrees above it and placed in the direction of the ...

... degrees they will not be affected. Even the problem of how they managed during the hundreds or thousands of years of a slow reversal is gone; a team of geophysicists investigating lava flows in America declare that reversals happened so fast that if a reversal happened today we would virtually be able to see a compass needle move. The problems of Auroras New Scientist 23.11.91, p. 23; 7.3 .92, pp. 25-30; 14.3 .92, p. 19 Although much is known about the way the interaction of the solar wind with the Earth's magnetic field causes the red and green electrical displays known as auroras, there is still ...

... of the idiom is assumed to have developed. This guides one to the various pictorial aspects and forms of the bedrock without the necessity for a physical model, although I shall propose one herein. The dripping ghee or tassels are an important clue to the nature of the phenomenon. They are auroroid, comparable with the shifting curtains of the aurora borealis. Just as the vertical parts of the aurora rapidly move about, so could Zeus have shaken his tasseled aegis. [n .b .: Zeus is the sky-god par excellence, as A.B . Cook makes abundantly clear in his massive three-volume compilation ZEUS: A Study in Ancient Religion. CLE] Rotational polar space ...

... 6) of Science, they publish results from an in-depth study of those images. The tenuous atmosphere of Jupiter's moon Io partially collapses in the darkness of the giant planet's shadow, they now find. At the same time, bright blue glows emanating from stealthy volcanic plumes grow even brighter. "This is our first detailed look at visible aurorae on a solar system satellite", said Paul Geissler of the University of Arizona, lead author of the report. "The pictures help us to understand Io's atmosphere and the processes that generate the emissions." Co-authors of the Science article are Alfred S. McEwen, also with the University of Arizona Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, Wing ...

... propose frictionless flows' of gas to explain the observations. One of the biggest surprises to astronomers, but no surprise to us, was provided by Neptune's magnetic field, which is very weak and tilted at 50 degrees to the axis of rotation. It does not originate from the planet's centre but from close to the south magnetic pole. Aurora Generator source: Scientific American May 1989, pp. 54-63 A detailed article describing the interactions between the Earth's magnetic field and the solar wind which gives rise to a vast electrical generator powering the luminous displays we see as the auroras. This will especially interest those who heard Milton Zysman's lecture earlier this year, or who wish to follow ...
18. Neocatastrophism in Geology and Paleontology [Articles]
... as fields for possible further development research and topics that people might be interested in working on. We have seen that the solar activity changes from a quiet Sun to an active Sun, I've noted that the Earth reacts to these changes, not only the climate of the Earth but also the general atmospheric conditions. This is a graph of aurora frequencies, the northern lights, here you have a lot of northern lights, here you don't have very many northern lights, now it turns out that the high period of solar activity caused changes in the Earth' s atmosphere, there are a lot of charged particles etc., more or less similar to a fluorescent tube, ...

... , neither did any other ancient people. That if Apollo was, like Bel, born in a sky-hole, that opening was the rising and setting place of the sun of primeval Greece, which saw the sun "go in", and not "down". We must find the "dancing places" of Helios, and of Aurora, and Daphne, the dawn, at the pole. So in reading the Hesiodic and Homeric poems, we necessarily fail to find anything that definitely assures us that the ancient Greeks ever saw the sun rise and set as we see it today. We find the progressive morning, Eos, Aurora, and the dawn, but they ...
