181. Electricity Absent from Sagan's Astrophysics [Journals] [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 4 No 2: (Spring 1974) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered VII" Home | Issue Contents Electricity Absent from Sagan's Astrophysics According to Professor Sagan, matters involving Newtonian dynamics and the laws of conservation of energy and angular momentum are of first importance in evaluating any hypothesis concerning celestial affairs, while "questions on the nature of planetary surfaces, atmospheres and interiors are on not as good a footing." This seems a fair appraisal, although of course realities that emerge from direct explorations of planets must be accommodated by any law of physics that is to remain valid. And Newtonian dynamics must be understood to embrace the interplay of electrical and electromagnetic as ...
182. Introduction: The Saturn Myth [Books]
... eclipses- or write them off altogether as expressions of unconstrained fancy. How many scholars, seeking to unravel the astronomical legends and symbols of antiquity, have questioned whether the heavenly bodies have always coursed on the same paths they follow today? In the past three hundred years barely a handful of writers have claimed any connection between myth and actual celestial catastrophe- William Whiston published in 1696 A New Theory of the Earth, arguing that the biblical Deluge resulted from a cometary cataclysm. The book produced a storm of scientific objections and had no lasting impact outside Christian orthodoxy. In 1882 and 1883 two books by Ignatius Donnelly appeared: Atlantis, the Antediluvian World, and Ragnarok: the ...
183. Night of the Gods: Polar Myths. Rock of Ages [Books]
... | Part 8 | Part 9 | Part 10 | Part 11 | Polar Myths. Rock of Ages 2. The Rock of Ages THE Japanese heavens-Rock Dwelling, ame-no-Iha Ya, in the Kozhiki (i , 16) must I think be taken to be the spot in the heavens which is fixed and eternal as a rock-that is the Northern celestial centre wherein the axis is unshakeably fixed. This is confirmed by the fact that the Iha Ya is "near the source of the peaceful heavens-River" (i , 32) which, as will be shown in its section, is the Milky Way proceeding from the Northern celestial pole. The Chinese Li Khi says that heaven-that is the ...
... years before the heaven and the earth, seven things were created: the Torah written with black fire on white fire, and lying in the lap of God; the Divine Throne, erected in the heaven which later was over the heads of the Hayyot; Paradise on the right side of God, Hell on the left side; the Celestial Sanctuary directly in front of God, having a jewel on its altar graven with the Name of the Messiah, and a Voice that cries aloud, "Return, ye children of men."[1 ] When God resolved upon the creation of the world, He took counsel with the Torah.[2 ] Her advice was ...
185. Mars Gods of the New World [Journals] [Aeon]
... by the Greeks and Indians. At first sight this argument has some appeal. Certainly there is no denying the fact that Babylonian astronomy had an enormous influence upon the early astronomical conceptions of the Greeks and other Old World cultures. The Greeks themselves admitted as much. (2 ) And analysis of the Greek and Indian traditions surrounding the various celestial bodies confirms that such was indeed the case. (3 ) Upon closer examination, however, it can be shown that diffusion from Babylon cannot account for the complex mythology which came to be associated with the respective planets. It rather appears to be that the myriad of characteristic traditions which came to surround Mars originated in direct response to ...
186. Response to Critique by Leroy Ellenberger [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... system unraveled, and the orbit of Mars circularized. We shall present our case for the conservation of angular momentum during this era of planet wars in three steps. Each step is designed to conserve both angular momentum and energy. Step 1. The Role of Venus The Catastrophic Era. As previously mentioned, this is our nomenclature for the celestial scenario that had dominated our planet and Mars for perhaps 10,000 or possibly even 15,000 years. The orbit of Mars penetrated deeply into Earth orbit space, and it also impinged on Venusian space slightly. For Venus it would just seem to be a matter of time until Mars would make a close flyby- a near ...
187. Plato. Ch.2 To Know And Not To Know (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... one of the natural disasters, actually the last. But simultaneously with the phenomenon of incipient, almost willful, amnesia, one can observe an opposite current, a conscious effort to preserve the memory of events that shook the framework of the earth, events in which the entirety of nature-sea and land, Sun and Moon, and all the celestial host-participated. Fifty years after Herodotus visited Egypt, Plato came there, hardly thirty years of age, soon after having parted from Socrates, who drank his cup of hemlock. When Plato was about ten years old he heard what Solon, generations earlier, had learned from the priests of Egypt about the cataclysms of the past, one ...
188. An Empirical Approach to Collective AmnesiaA [Journals] [Kronos]
... shock, are not retrievable from human memory. Combined with regional shocks during an ongoing cataclysm, details of many events were variously erased by trauma-induced storage failure. [* What must have been a common source of collective memory "loss" was the characteristic behavior of hiding in caves, under rock overhangs, or other protected areas- the celestial events simply were not directly witnessed- but here we are concerned with memory loss for observed events.] The emergence of surviving cultures, where fragmented memories were collectively reconstructed, may be likened to the process of consolidation in individual memory. During this consolidation, experiences being transformed into long-term memory undergo further distortion. Only the most salient ...
... catastrophic backdrop to the Hebrew Exodus.To build his case Velikovsky undertook a global survey of mythical and historical records, supplemented by archaeological testimony. He claimed that ancient observations of planetary motions make no sense, at least in terms of the heavens we know today. Ancient sundials and water clocks, he reported, likewise testify to an altered celestial order, while the star chart on an Egyptian tomb represents a confused, "upside down" sky. From opposite sides of the world, Velikovsky produced surprising, dovetailing reports describing celestial upheavals and apparent devastations from Earth-changing encounters. All told, it was an extraordinary and exciting thesis, but less than convincing to astronomers and physicists reading ...
190. Appendix: Measurements Of The Electromagnetic Properties Of "space" [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... , far removed from any planetary or other source. It is further assumed that the constant of gravitation, the so-called "proportionality constant," relating gravitational attractive force to the Newtonian product of masses divided by the square of the distance separating the mass centroids, is totally unrelated to electrical quantities such as electrical charge. Since inertial navigation, celestial mechanics and the dramatically successful control of the trajectories of space vehicles do not require the explicit use of any electrical terms, this final assumption appears to be above educated criticism. Our proposal consists of a practical design of measurements and computations, using both electrical engineering and celestial mechanics, to determine whether the above-specified assumptions are valid. The ...
