461. The Sun's Galactic Journey and Absolute Time [Books] [de Grazia books]
... Galaxy itself is embedded in a halo of cooler stars. Most of what is known of the galactic halo is deduced from a study of a few nearby small stars and 120 globular star clusters which surround the core of the Galaxy. One of these globular clusters, Messier 13 in the constellation of Hercules, has been described as a "celestial chrysanthemum" (Baker, R.H ., p451). The number of stars in this cluster cannot be counted; but estimates around 500 000 are made. Averaging this number of stars over the volume of the cluster (not precisely known) it would seem as if the stars are about two light-years apart, much closer ...
462. Preface (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... "Earth in Upheaval" © 1955 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Preface EARTH IN UPHEAVAL is a book about the great tribulations to which the planet on which we travel was subjected in pre-historical and historical times. The pages of this book are transcripts of the testimony of mute witnesses, the rocks, in the court of celestial traffic. They testify by their own appearance and by the encased contents of dead bodies, fossilized skeletons. Myriads upon myriads of living creatures came to life on this ball of rock suspended in nothing and returned to dust. Many died a natural death, many were killed in wars between races and species, and many were entombed alive ...
463. Wild Motions, Angular Momentum and Other Problems [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Senior Editor of Kronos and a leading American researcher in the Velikovskian field. The following comments are prompted primarily by Robert W. Bass' address at the Glasgow Conference, recently published in SISR VI:1-3. They cover a range of physical problems either discussed by Bass or related to his remarks. Dr Bass' presentation, "The Celestial Dynamics of Worlds in Collision", lives up to the standards for stimulating reading he set in his previous papers in Pensée and Kronos. His concern for calling attention to M. A. Cook's "obscure and little-known theory of gravity", with its implications for an electric cosmos, was necessary because Cook's exchange with Juergens in Pensée ...
464. The Ruined Face of a Classic Beauty [Books] [de Grazia books]
... viper." But Titan Mene would not yield to the attack. Battling against the Giant's heads, like-horned to hers, she carved many a scar on the shining orb of her bull's horn; and Selene's radiant cattle bellowed amazed at the gaping chasm of Typhon's throat." [1 ] The fable bespeaks cosmic cyclones, where earthly and celestial effects are simultaneously visible and apparently connected by an uncontrolled raging dragon-god. THE INNOCENT ASTRONAUTS The Moon, as a round rock in the sky, was a manifestation of the Goddess Aphrodite. What happened to it happened to her and what happened to her, in many cases, happened to it. We turn, therefore, to geology ...
465. A Fire not Blown [Books]
... not allowed to wash their feet, the Brahmin Agnihotris or fire priests had to sleep on the ground, the Flamen Dialis had to sleep in a bed whose feet were covered in mud. The common aim was to be in intimate contact with the earth goddess Gaia. The ankh may have a different explanation, representing the dual character, celestial and chthonic, of the electrical force. There may also be a link with the orb and sceptre, regalia with which a monarch is equipped at a coronation ceremony.

466. The Garden, the Fall and the Restoration [Articles]
... possible, the essential thesis is that the great myths are a world-wide storehouse of symbols and motifs that once constituted the coherent astronomical-astrological science of our pre-literate ancestors in all parts of the world. The events of myth, and especially the great mythic catastrophes of devastation by fire and flood, are seen as a mapping of major changes in the celestial order onto the familiar dimensions of terrestrial society and geography. These changes are those brought about by the precession, the gradual, inexorable revolution of the Earth's axial direction represented by the celestial North Pole around the pole of the ecliptic, the famous "empty place" from which according to the book of Job the world is suspended. ...
467. My Challenge to Conventional Views in Science [Journals] [Pensee]
... and primitive plant life on Saturn, besides what I said now of Mars. So much for cosmology and also the evolution of life. If I was completely at odds with the cosmogony that had the solar system without history since creation, I was also carrying my heresy into a most sacred field, the holy of holies of science- celestial mechanics. I had a chapter on the subject at the end of Worlds in Collision, but I kept those galleys from inclusion in the book and instead I included only one or two paragraphs- and the only italicized words in the book are found in them- namely: "The accepted celestial mechanics, notwithstanding the many calculations that ...
468. Abbreviations, Glossary and Bibliography [Books] [de Grazia books]
... is the ratio of the average drift velocity (attained between collisions) to the electric field strength (which produces the drift velocity). Mohorovicic discontinuity is the junction which separates the Earth's crust and mantle. Its depth is about 10 kilometres below the ocean basin. neutrinos, see nuclear fusion Newtonian formulation states that the gravitational attraction between two celestial bodies depends upon the product of the two point masses transacting and upon the inverse of the square of the distance separating the masses. Expressed mathematically In metre-kilogram-seconds units (mks) the gravitational constant of proportionality (G ) relates the force in newtons to the masses in kilograms and the separation in metres. G has the value 6. ...
469. Some Notes on Senmut's Ceiling [Journals] [SIS Review]
... at Luxor (Dyn. XXV - XXVI) and in a subterranean gallery at Tuna el-Gebel (Hermopolis West), considered to date from the Ptolemaic period (304 - 283 BC). These illustrations are for purposes of comparison only. In the tomb of Senmut, the architect of Queen Hatshepsut, a panel on the ceiling shows the celestial sphere with the signs of the zodiac and other constellations in "a reversed orientation" of the southern sky. The end of the Middle Kingdom antedated the time of Queen Hatshepsut by several centuries. The astronomical ceiling presenting a reversed orientation must have been a venerated chart, made obsolete a number of centuries earlier. "A characteristic feature ...
