321. The Birth and Death of Memory [Books] [de Grazia books]
... beautiful. Hesiod, reciting this profound truth, goes on to describe how the muses work, reminding us of a combined team for domestic propaganda and psychological warfare. As a result, all the arts and sciences have been manipulated by the muses. What we know of the catastrophes must come from a "natural history" - geology, biology, physics and astronomy-and a politics, philosophy, and theology that have been censored by the Muses. Additionally, we must obtain our historical material from myth, song, dances, and drama that are similarly screened. It is well to insist upon this premise, whether we come to the problem from an acquaintanceship with the ...
322. The Electrical Axis and its Gaseous Radiation [Books] [de Grazia books]
... This was a highly energetic dis-charge which generated chemical, and probably nuclear, transformations among the gaseous constituents of the plenum. It provided the heat and energy for life to emerge. The gaseous plenum initially seems to have contained an excess of hydrogen. The combination of electrical arc with hydrogen-rich gases favored the quick production of organic molecules and of biological systems (Miller and Urey) within the plenum. An electrical current flowing along the axis of the binary of the order of 10 14 amperes (100 => teraamperes) would produce sufficient magnetic field intensity to constrain the plenum gases up to 64 000 kilometers from the axis (see ahead to Chapter Seven). Electrical breakdown can ...

324. The Afar Triangle As the Nether Reaches of Eden and Babel [Journals] [Aeon]
... Juergens seems to have seriously undermined both the geological time-scale and some of the major oceanic and geomagnetic evidence for continental drift and plate tectonics. On the other hand, much of the discussion of plate tectonics and drifting continents makes considerable sense to me. No doubt the time-scale should be greatly reduced both for the continental movements themselves and for the biological changes that are apparently correlated with those continental movements (4 ) , and no doubt the uniformitarian picture should be replaced with a catastrophist model, in which both geological and biological changes may be sudden and discrete and intermittent, rather than slow and gradual. Also, the forces behind continental movement should no doubt be sought within the context ...
325. Vox Popvli [Journals] [Aeon]
... . He cast electricity and electromagnetism as the principal players in all the forces that composed and activated the world and mind. His theories would even transform gravitational laws and phenomena into electrical processes. Rare among scientists, he comprehended and contributed to studies in mythology and psychology. When he came to study the origins of life, his knowledge of biology and elementary forms was a boon. Chemistry, spectroscopy, mathematics, and astrophysics were his strongest cards, and he played them with astonishing dexterity. If these seem already too many to handle, I must add that he often discarded them when they were not filling out a suit that he was playing, and he would add other ...
326. The Paleo-Saturnian System [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon VI:1 (Feb 2001) Home | Issue Contents The Paleo-Saturnian System Michael Bar-Ron, from Jerusalem, Israel, writes: I am a young student of Torah with a degree in biological anthropology, having a good background in paleontology and Middle Eastern history. On the other hand, my background in physics, electronics, and mathematics is somewhat poor, making it difficult for me to assess the strength of the Saturn thesis on these merits. In the meantime, I labor under a willing suspension of disbelief. As I become more familiar with the already-vast sea of articles and stated opinions concerning Velikovskian catastrophism and electrical interpretations of astronomical phenomena, I am able ...
327. A Note on the Patten Aging Theory [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... exhaling oxygen that a higher atmospheric oxygen content naturally would follow. Indeed, some adverse reactions from much higher carbon dioxide levels, such as higher blood pressure, appear to be counteracted by higher oxygen levels. In spite of the above considerations, it is my opinion that the most important effects of higher atmospheric carbon dioxide result from the modified biological chemistry within the body. The most important of these is probably the higher retention of the trace elements, especially zinc, in the blood. The Pattens have cited an Air Force study relating increased carbon dioxide exposure to increased zinc within the bloodstream. They also cited a study of zinc metabolism upon age, size, and immunity of ...
328. A Maya Record of Two Thousand Years? [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... rings reveals climatic changes and also dates them if the series extends continuously to the present. In practice, climate reflected by tree-ring growth, specifically temperature, is best done with bristlecone pine, because it grows at very high elevations where temperature is a more important variable than rainfall, and many trees have been examined to average out local and biological variations. Even so, random short-time variations are so large the data must be plotted as moving long-time averages, or sometimes simply as 10 or 20 year averages, to observe significant climatic changes. Lamb (1977, 591) shows that low temperatures between -3100 and -2800 were followed by a sharp maximum at about -2700, and a ...
329. Geophysical Time Series and Catastrophism [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... available (i .e . stored) since their original values are repeatedly used and modified by different coefficients (weights) in every step. Such a mechanism can be easily visualized in economic time series where the original values of variables (prices, volumes of stock, etc.) are preserved in the book-keeping process, and in some biological processes where the long-term memory could be related to the mechanism of genetic coding. It, however, does not seem likely that the model has universal validity, especially in geophysical processes which tend to have the so called Markovian property, it means the past history of the process affects its present state through its cumulative effect which is fully ...

... issue has been composed by the founder. In the future, editorial responsability will be shared; permanent collaborators will be organized in the following groups: an editorial board composed of people working in various branches of geology and palaeontology; a board of advisors composed of people working in non-geo logical sciences: physics, mathematics, chemistry, astronomy, biology, history, archaeology, anthropology, etc.; a group of correspondents composed of geologists, palaeonto- logists and others, who have some special knowledge and may occasionally be relied upon for advise or help. The following persons have manifested their willingness to sit on these boards or to act as correspondents: Doeko Goosen pedologist Enschede/ ...
