51. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... ) After tea we welcomed Tony Peratt, a plasma-physicist from America. He had become interested in ideas of an electrical universe after he saw pictures of rock-art shown by Talbott (the Saturn scenario/Polar Configuration) – until then he had only seen such pictures as a result of his classified work on plasma physics. Tony described how Earth's aurorae are formed when charged ions from the Sun funnel in towards Earth's north and south magnetic poles, creating visible sheaths of electric current. In extremely active electrical conditions in the solar system an intense auroral funnel could have been formed, consisting of plasma (visible ionised gas) which would have shown the ever-involving patterns seen in an equivalent plasma ...

... by PENSEE. This research, which is of fundamental importance to Velikovsky's thesis will thus reach a very much wider audience. Followers of Eric Crew's essays in this journal will find much to interest them in "Strange Phenomena", as about half the articles in this collection are devoted to various types of electromagnetic events such as ball lightning and Auroras. Meteors, earthquake phenomena and Fortean falls of odd materials also figure largely in this volume. THE HITTITES: People of a Thousand Gods by Johannes Lehmann Collins, 1977: £5 .75. Dr Lehmann's short book on the Hittites makes a useful introduction for non-specialists to that problematic people. Of particular note is a discursive account ...

... supernova remnants" and cosmic X-ray sources. 51 Azimuthal angle is, here, a measure of the planet's progress around its orbit. Planets whose azimuthal angles differ would be said to have a revolutional phase shift (as in Figure 17). 52 Several expert observers, working at remote locations, report sound associated with intensive displays of the Aurora Borealis (Harang, Stomer). ...
54. Earth Lights [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Andreas fault. Hence, once again, Dick Atkinson was astute to criticise Clube & Napier's claims that higher meteoric flux levels promulgated Puritan fundamentalism in the Middle Ages. Light phenomena from tectonic sources could just as easily lie at the root of religious revival in the past on many occasions and as Atkinson has noted, strange cloud formations and the aurora could have played a role. Periodic meteoric outbursts may however be a contributing factor on occasion - but not always. For instance, the English rustic poet John Clare, was an acute observer of nature and records seeing strange lights that he at first thought were meteoric in nature. However, they had the ability it seemed to him ...

... ', above thunderstorms may help to keep the potential difference between the ionosphere and the ground constant, without which the chemistry of the atmosphere would be altered and this would affect life on Earth. The ionosphere becomes charged by particles from the Sun but then the loss of electrons back into space causes huge electrical fields to build up. The auroras are now thought to result from a recharging from the outer magnetosphere. Unacknowledged Wave Forms New Scientist 1.12.01, p. 52 Homeopathy is still rejected by orthodox science, even though recent explanations suggest that the water could carry a memory of the original substance. Evidence for this is that sharks can detect blood in sea ...

... eye-lid." (350) Slavonic mythology, on the other hand, knows of two dawns: "According to Slavonic myths and legends the Sun lived... in a land of eternal summer and abundanceHe lived in a kingdom of light and sat on a throne of gold and purple. At his side stood two beautiful virgins, Aurora of the Morning and Aurora of the Evening... " (351) The land of "eternal summer and abundance" is a recognizable reference to Saturn's Golden Age, and the "Sun" spoken of here must perforce have been the Saturnian sun of yore. Aurora, of course, is the Latin name of the goddess ...

... but, unless my calculations are completely up the creek (and I would be most interested to see alternative diagrams to the ones presented below from someone who can prove that I am), it is not always for the same reasons Cardona mentions. P = Pole Star O = Observer at about 45 A = Reflected image of N polar aurora area B = Image of part of S polar aurora area above tangential visibility area Note: Reflected images seen as 4 Earth radii beyond canopy and even larger. For starters, the Earth would not, under Zysman's conditions, have been reflected back off the canopy as a sphere. Instead, the entire sky would have appeared as a ...
... of Ancient Geography, locates it in the farthest West. Each represents the opinion of a large number of interpreters, however widely these latter may dissent among themselves with respect to other questions. The partisans of the eastern location are accustomed to appeal to the explicit declara tion of the poet that at Aiaie "are the abodes and dancegrounds of Aurora, there the risings of the Sun" (Odyssey, xii, 3, 4) : the other company declare that every indication given as to the direction of the voyagers on their way thither necessitates the supposition that the general course was west, or northwest or southwest from Greece.* Both classes are right; but instead of ...
59. Geological Genesis [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... electro-magnetism cannot be ignored. Planets have magnetic fields and magnetospheres extending millions of miles into space. Interactions take place between these and the solar winds. In the case of the Earth at present, because of rotation, such interactions take the form of a dynamo effect which powers an electrical discharge process around the Earth, as evidenced by the Aurora . Only a small variation in cosmic flux or sunspot activity leads to a large disturbance in the lower atmosphere via such electric fields . Around Saturn, hydrogen extending outside the ring system glows faintly as it is excited by electromagnetic radiation from the Sun. The rings themselves lie in an area of low density ...

... column of water or air; a mountain of fire-light. As Talbott himself comments: "Virtually none of the predicted associations and identities make any sense under the appearance of the heavens today."  Personally, I cannot agree with Talbott's statement above. Anyone who travels far into Earth's northern regions can witness the spectacle of the aurora borealis. Accounts of this phenomenon as presented in encyclopedias include such descriptions as: "like a colorful illuminated wind;" "sometimes like a massive wall stretching into the sky, reaching from horizon to horizon, sometimes as an illuminated curtain in the wind;" "red, green, gold, silver;" "sometimes transparent ...
