41. Martian Metamorphosis (Book) [Maverick Science Website]
... to: to Aeon, PO Box 1092, Ames Iowa 50014. USA. Pay online with Paypal: Earthlings have long been fascinated by the planet Mars. Well before modern science fiction speculated about advanced civilizations on Mars and the dire threat of invasion by little green men, the red planet was regarded as a malevolent agent of war, pestilence, and apocalyptic disaster. In an attempt to appease the capricious warrior-planet, various ancient cultures offered it human sacrifices. What is there about this distant speck of light that could inspire such bizarre conceptions culminating in ritual murder? And how do we account for the fact that virtually identical beliefs are to be found around the globe, in the New World as well as the Old? The present book will seek to address such questions. For untold millennia prior to the advent of scientific astronomy and well before there were any records which could properly be called historical, human beings recounted myths surrounding their favorite heroes and gods. Prominent themes in these sacred traditions include the Creation, the Deluge, the wars of the gods ...

43. Who Were the Assyrians of the Persian Period [Aeon Journal $]
... Akhaemenids borrowed their culture from the ruins of that land? This despite the fact that, according to conventional wisdom, Assyria was not only defeated but thoroughly extinguished. No less enigmatic is the strange circumstance that the Akhaemenids appear to repeat the Assyrians' change from cylinder seals to stamp seals and from a lingua franca of cuneiform Akkadian to a lingua franca of alphabetic Aramaic. If indeed the Persians were digging up their cultural identity out of Assyrian rubbish, why did they fail to incorporate the latest achievements of that power? Even more bizarre is the Akhaemenids' hesitancy to utilize their Assyrian culture in Assyria proper. According to conventional wisdom, the Persians avoided the fertile heartland of their world empire like hell. And if all the non-Assyrian sources referring to a most active life in North Mesopotamia between 610 and 330 BCE should contain a kernel of truth, modern Assyriologists cannot confirm it. From the view of the author's stratigraphical approach to history, of course, the Assyrian materials from inside Assyria and the Assyrianizing materials from without belong to one and the same Persian Empire ...

47. The 8 Greatest Mysteries of Cosmology [Science Frontiers Website]
... mainstream astronomers consider to be their major unsolved problems. Naturally, we shall add a few that we think should have been on the list. How multidimensional is the universe? For example, gravitons, which are believed to exist in a fifth dimension, are supposed to transmit gravitational force. This dimension is barely separated from our well-known four. The thin barrier separating us from the graviton universe seems to leak a bit therebyallowing gravity, the weakest of all our universe's forces, to exist. Sounds pretty far-out, but not as bizarre as string theory which requires many more dimensions! How did the universe begin? The cosmic microwave background is much too smooth. If it was smoothed out by a sudden expansion of the universe (so-called "inflation"), what caused the inflation? Why does matter fill the universe? in other words, where is all the antimatter that we think must have been created in equal amounts? (This equality is a human philosophical requirement. The universe can do anything it wants!) How did galaxies form? What ...

49. Songs In Your Head [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 136: JUL-AUG 2001 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Songs In Your Head Aneurysms occur when the wall of a blood vessel weakens and bulges outward. They can be very dangerous but in some cases they produce bizarre side effects. Take, for example, this case of a 61-year-old woman. The woman's symptoms began with nausea, fatigue and then disorientation. Then, after a year, she began hearing music in the forms of songs she knew. The music was peristent but kept changing. In December, it involved Christmas songs, for example. The songs were ones the woman learned when she was young. She had no obvious physical problems that might explain the hallucinations. The woman naturally went to a psychiatrist, but to no avail. Finally, repeated MRI examinations revealed two small brain aneurysms. When these were corrected surgically, the music stopped.

50. Sleep-work And Dream-work [Science Frontiers Website]
... experiment outlined in his dream, and thereby developed a new theory of brain activity. In 1869, D. Mendeleyev was puzzling over the disparate properties of the 63 elements then known. Was there any pattern? One night he fell asleep and in a dream the elements fell into their proper places in the Periodic Table. (Mazzarello, Paolo; "What Dreams May Come?" Nature, 408:523, 2000.) Comments. These mammalian anecdotes involving sleep and dreams are amusing, but most dreams are frivolous, bizarre, and of very little practical value, Mendeleyev notwithstanding. The utility of sleeping and dreaming do not seem at all commensurate with the accompanying vulnerability and the loss of waking hours. However, speculation is fun. There are at least two rather far-fetched explanations for characteristics (sleeping and dreaming here) that do not appear to have very much survival value. Sleeping and dreaming may be linked genetically to a characteristic that does have considerable survival value. Example: Resistance to malaria is coupled to sickle-cell anemia. Sleeping and dreaming may ...
