151. Leonardo da Vinci: Rocks, Fossils, and Time [Journals] [Kronos]
... Leonardo was fascinated by the beauty and detail of the geological and paleontological evidence about him and their far-reaching implications; his own magnificent landscapes attest to his love for physical nature. To Leonardo, the rock strata with their fossils suggested a story considerably different from the interpretations given by most thinkers in antiquity. (Although he was the father of biology and made contributions to taxonomy and embryology, Aristotle himself had held to the eternal fixity of all terrestrial plant and animal forms or species (including man) within the hierarchical Great Chain of Being. It was a very secure world.) Since marine fossils of many different sizes and species were found in many different layers above the sea ...
152. Radiant Genesis [Books] [de Grazia books]
... , when Super Uranus, the planets, the sac and plenum, and the electrical arc with its magnetic tube underwent abrupt transformations. A biosphere was generated during the primary period and produced its main forms. That is, there was first a time of radiant genesis, a proto-zoic stage, followed by a time of the escalation of basic biological types, a palaeo-zoic stage. Then occurs a meso-zoic period of formal and ambient stability, which coincides with the secondary period of relative balance in physical history. These are the subjects of the present chapter. The Cenozoic, which we redefine as a period of explosive quantavolution, corresponding to the period of system breakdown, is the subject ...

... disintegrated), or an altogether different kind of origin in which more argon-36 was created than for earth and Mars. (Anonymous; "Venus Probes Solar System Birth," New Scientist, 80:916, 1978.) UNEARTHLY LIFE ON MARS From the media standpoint -- and therefore that of most people -- the Viking Martian biological experiments were uncompromisingly negative. Lewis points out that this is simply not so. The labelled-release experiments on both landers produced positive results every time a nutrient was added to fresh Martian soil. (The nutrient was tagged with carbon-14 and radioactive carbon dioxide always evolved, suggesting biological metabolism.) Further, the soil samples, when sterilized by ...

155. To Begin the World Over Again [Journals] [Aeon]
... detections of electric and magnetic activity into (human) sensory stimuli. (A voltmeter, e.g ., "translates" its responses to electric potential into the visible movements of its needle.) In the last half-century, such technological enhancements of our senses have burgeoned. But we persist in trusting the mechanical concepts linked with our biological eyes more than the plasma concepts we're slowly learning to link with our technological "eyes." [2 ] Space age instruments attest daily that what we thought was empty space is full of electromagnetically active plasma. It's not the spaces between the stars that are empty, but the spaces between our senses. To a radio telescope, ...

... it chronicles from historical records of ancient peoples around the world has not been extensively collated. The evidence pointed to an unwelcome conclusion: the Earth has experienced a series of cataclysmic crises that occurred in pre-human, pre-historic and even historical times. Each of these had enormous effects on the Earth and its inhabitants, directing the course of geological and biological evolution. Although he thinks he has delineated a number of separate episodes going back as far as the memory of man is retained in human records, the book Worlds in Collision pertains only to those since the fifteenth century, B.C . The story of the earlier events is reserved for volumes now in typescript. Additionally, Velikovsky ...
157. Catastrophic Events & Mass Extinctions [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... @kelvin.jpl.nasa.gov> Catastrophic Events & Mass Extinctions: Impacts And Beyond. July 9-12, 2000 Vienna, Austria http://cass.jsc.nasa.gov/meetings/impact2000/ This conference will be the fourth of an informal series of meetings on mass extinctions, global catastrophes, geological (and biological) implications of impact events, and related investigations, which were initially held at Snowbird, Utah, to discuss studies of the Cretaceous-Tertiary (K-T) boundary. The first two conferences had the K-T boundary as their main topic, and included vigorous debates on the evidence for an impact event 65 m.y . ago and alternative explanations ...
... , by no means universal. There was always a fair element of chance which allowed lucky individuals and groups to survive the catastrophes and to perpetuate their race. There is, however, another aspect, and one of great novelty and importance. The times of stress brought about by the satellites during their approach must have had a very decided biological influence. They subjected all living beings that had escaped extinction in the waters now to heat, and now to cold; now to wet, and now to drought; now to a dense atmosphere and now to a rarefied one; now to the radiations which reach sea level, and now to those active only at great heights; ...
159. Pentecost [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... man is an electrical creature. The natural currents within our bodies are small, but their role is extremely significant; they govern our very lives. These minute currents can be disrupted, or overridden. In particular ". .. extremely low frequency (ELF) fields have the capacity to penetrate buildings and living tissue and hence are potential biological stimuli."(1 ) And when this happens, our perceptions can falter; and our reactions and responses might be beyond our control. Such stimuli might have many unpredictable effects upon man; but there are a few that can be described from experience. As to perception, certain fields can excite the human auditory system in such ...
160. Psychology and Ancient Astronomical Discovery [Journals] [Kronos]
... until recently. New discoveries in archeology have made it clear that prehistoric cultures were much more complex than formerly believed. One researcher, Alexander Marshack, has conducted an exhaustive re-examinanation of Upper Paleolithic artifacts and cave art His conclusions significantly affect the conventional evaluation of Upper Paleolithic cultures. The period currently is theorised to have begun with the appearance of biologically fully modern humans, around 35,000 years ago. Extending downward to around 10,000 B.C ., the sequence of development is divided into major cultural traditions. Each division spans thousands of years and is characterised by trends in tools, artifacts, and other evidence. From the beginning, a rich tradition of cave ...
