71. Solaria Binaria [Books] [de Grazia books]
... at least twice as massive. From the radiation it emits, Jupiter is thought to have a subsurface temperature somewhere between 12,000 and 50,000 C. Its chemistry resembles more the gaseous Sun than the inner planets, or even its own satellites; it consists largely of hydrogen in various states, and holds some water [16 ... . THE MAGNETIC TUBE AND PLANETS Around this gigantic axial current, a magnetic field would be induced. This field was composed of ionized gases and contained a number of the chemical elements in atomic and molecular form, including especially water in its three forms. The field rotated around the central axis. Within the outer envelope of the rotating gases ...
72. The Inexact Science of Radiometric Dating [Journals] [SIS Review]
... accurately determined. A major deterrent existed in that many minerals contained only very small percentages of both parent and daughter elements, thus posing problems for chemical determinations utilising standard analytic chemistry techniques (1 ). However, since that date, with the rapid advancement of technology in industrialised countries, the measurement of minute amounts of elements and their respective ... mineral ages had been reasonable accurately determined. A major deterrent existed in that many minerals contained only very small percentages of both parent and daughter elements, thus posing problems for chemical determinations utilising standard analytic chemistry techniques (1 ). However, since that date, with the rapid advancement of technology in industrialised countries, the measurement of minute amounts ...
73. Contributors [Journals] [Kronos]
... Royal Astronomical Society); Mr. Firsoff has written widely on astronomy and other subjects, gemstones among them. He has a considerable knowledge of experimental facts in biology, chemistry, and biochemistry. His writing in astronomy began in 1952 with Our Neighbor Worlds and recent books include The Interior Planets (1968), The World of Mars ( ... Life Among the Stars (1974). In his latest book, At the Crossroads of Knowledge (1977), he reflects on the origins of life, examines its chemical basis, and discusses the possibilities of other biochemistries for life elsewhere in the universe. Robert S. Harrington (Ph.D ., University of Texas at Austin ...
74. Towards a New Evolutionary Synthesis [Books]
... subjecting each to far less searching scrutiny than he had Darwinism. The concept of self-organisation developed from the open system and non-equilibrium thermodynamics of Nobel laureate Ilya Prigogine, Professor of Chemistry and Theoretical Physics at the Free University of Brussels and, although still lacking an experimental basis, could help to explain how complex biochemicals formed from simple molecules on the ... a simulation of the Earth's primordial atmosphere, this seemed to have established that life itself arose along Darwinian lines, with natural selection determining which of the many molecules and pre-biotic chemical systems arising by random interactions prevailed to give rise to further systems. Thus, larger molecules developed from smaller molecules, and interacted in ever more complex fashion, until ...
75. Collapsing Tests of Time [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . The vertical growth rate of coral can be from 1 to 12 meters per thousand years. The lower limit is actually zero, depending upon thermal, chemical, nutritional, wave-energy, and pollution conditions. The highest rate, for all we know. may be limited only by the speed with which the sea-level is rising ... as required by current theory. There appears to be a chain type reaction operating...similar to that observed in neutron induced sustained nuclear fission," here citing chemists J. L. Anderson and G. W. Spangler. Dudley asks for the incorporating in decay theory of "the energy state of the entire atom [not ...
76. On The Lecture Circuit [Journals] [Pensee]
... North Carolina- Charlotte (December 6), and Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina (December 7). The Chapel Hill invitation was initiated by a group of graduate chemistry students. They wrote Velikovsky, back in November, 1972, explaining their purposes: "Recently the graduate students of this department have been discussing ways to improve the ... students, who traditionally are not involved in cosmology and the history of civilization, it seemed that research in these areas was unrelated and certainly outside of the domain of the chemist. After reading your books, we found that your ideas add a dynamic dimension to these areas that we did not know existed. Your work has shown us that ...
77. Earth Parturition and Moon Birth [Books] [de Grazia books]
... ), be deposited all over the globe . Today this sial is found over only 40% of the surface, the balance being ocean bottoms of silicate-magnesium chemistry (sima), typified in an igneous basalt (see Figure 18). The Moon contains 1/80 of the Earth's volume, representing the mixture of continental ... Promptly upon lunar material eruption would follow an immense semi-globular gradiant introducing gravitational slide. The continental crust would flow down the lips of the concavity. LUNAR CONFORMITIES TO ERUPTION The chemical composition of the Moon associates it with the inner planets. However, its surface is a melt to a considerable depth, if not entirely. It lacks the granite ...
78. Beyond Bauer [Journals] [Aeon]
... , Bauer quite naturally focuses his attention on Velikovsky's discussion of the physical sciences. Here it must be admitted that Bauer exposes numerous errors within Velikovsky's discussion of the intricacies of chemistry, physics, and astronomy. Specific examples include Velikovsky's confusion over the difference between absorption lines and band spectra of argon and neon (11) ; the statement that ... Beyond Velikovsky Bauer offers a lengthy, if selective, analysis of Worlds in Collision and seeks to address the oft-asked question of whether Velikovsky was right. Being trained as a chemist, Bauer quite naturally focuses his attention on Velikovsky's discussion of the physical sciences. Here it must be admitted that Bauer exposes numerous errors within Velikovsky's discussion of the intricacies ...
79. Mass Movements in Level Areas [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... called liquefaction. Consequently, the basic principles established in rheology, the general study of flow systems, are applicable to soil materials. In rheology as well as in colloidal chemistry and soil mechanics, thixotropic and dilatant systems are distinguished. The difference between the two depends mainly on differences in cohesion. Thixotropy. In many soil systems, the ... that of calcareous clays in areas where dry periods alternate with wet ones. As discussed by Van Schuylenborgh (1972), sudden rain after a prolonged dry spell brings about chemical changes leading to a loss of cohesion and temporary dilatancy. The influence of these chemical processes on soil flow has been discussed by Goosen et al (1973) and ...
80. Arctic Tundra Mammoth Steppe Or Velikovskian Poleshift? [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... back into their making only grudgingly and this trickle can be captured by root-systems that are a good deal less efficient than those of tropical trees.... Furthermore the chemistry of humus is such that nutrients such as nitrates and phosphates, those that are negatively charged [electrically], actually collect on the humus particles being dragged out of ... .. cannot survive heavy browsing by herbivores because they lack sufficient underground resources to recover quickly. They use nutrients conservatively, allocating some resources to growth and others to toxic chemical defenses. Thus, we may find a six-inch diameter black spruce tree that is a hundred years old. This spruce survived because it produced toxic defenses- terpines and ...
