121. Ninurta [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... ) will be identified with the instruments of creation, which can range from the stylus, to the sword, to the plough, and far beyond. More specifically, the instruments of creation with which the hero is associated will reveal an underlying identity with the axis-column or world mountain. And the hero himself is an inseparable part of the column, often appearing as a head or orb on a post, pillar, or pole. This column is beneath the central sun, in a clearly-defined relationship, giving us one of several keys to pinpointing the attributes of the hero. While I will want to take the time to present the model in sufficient detail, the two most ...

122. Of the Moon and Mars, Part 2 [Journals] [Pensee]
... during the formation of the mound [as] shown by the shallow development of the borrow pits' [concentric graben?] from which the mound is built up. Hill attributes the mounding-up of fulgamites to magnetic-pinch forces at the junction of the discharge with the electrode (lightning rod). His calculations indicate that such forces in a lightning column are easily adequate to raise metallic welts a centimeter or so in diameter, and they neatly account for the bell-shaped fulgamite surfaces as well. The concentric rings and ridges, in his opinion, are best explained as remnants of ripples set up in the molten surface during fulgamite formation by oscillations in the plasma of the lightning column. But ...

... , remarking that his buckling equation was a drop in the ocean of Young's contributions to science, medicine, engineering and philology but it was seminal to the design of compression members'. However they also quote other writers who give some clue as to why Young never made the impact or gained the fame he deserved. On the question of column design, they quote Salmon2: The credit for first giving the analysis for eccentrically loaded and initially curved columns is due to Young, and had he been gifted with the power of lucid expression, succeeding generations might have been saved much mathematical disputation. ' Then there is Peacock3: He was therefore worse calculated than any man I ever ...

124. Electricity in Astronomy /3 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the ions are neutralised by free electrons in the surrounding atmosphere. Although the noise of thunder is generally regarded as simply the effect of the rapid expansion of the lightning channel due to sudden heating, it may be that much of the energy causing the loud thunderclap of the return stroke is caused by the electrical repulsion and radial expansion of a column of positive ions. Expansion due to heating is a secondary effect, so it seems possible that the primary effect of an electrical force expansion would act more quickly and explains why the sound is produced nearly instantaneously as the light emission. Light and sound are, of course, transmitted at very different velocities, so there is an appreciable ...

125. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... David's case opened with the fact that all the evidence points to the earliest predynastic settlements being in the south, with a later conquest of the north. A consideration of the earliest monumental stone buildings, the Djoser step-pyramid and its associated complex, shows that the stone was worked into an enduring representation of contemporary buildings and their natural materials. Columns on the facade of the House of the North' used the papyrus emblem which grew in the Delta, whilst the House of the South' has a single column bearing a Madonna lily capitol - but long-stemmed lilies do not grow in Egypt. Other columns are fluted, with capitols of pendulous leaves which do not tally with any known ...

... From: SIS Newsletter 2 (Sep 1975) Home | Issue Contents Bookshelf Brian Moore THE LITERATURE OF CATASTROPHISM is vast and growing. This column will attempt to inform members of books and periodical articles, both current and forthcoming, which are germane to our Society's interest. Selected relevant material from all fields will also be included. Limitations of space mean that only outline information can be given here; however, it is intended to include major reviews of important works elsewhere in the Newsletter from time to time, as has been done in this issue for Franz Xaver Kugler. Information and suggestions from members will be welcome, and the correspondence columns - as well as the main ...

... , for instance, represented the Milky Way by a white cord stretched diagonally above several dots known to represent stars. [91] The most appealing example, however, comes from India, where the symbolism of the string of pearls was preserved in no less a tradition than the teachings of Kundalini Yoga. As Butterworth explains, the spinal column, called Meruda, was in fact an image of the cosmic mountain otherwise known as Meru, which is universally accepted as a form of the polar axis. The serpentine goddess Kudaliniis believed to dwell. In the innermost vein running through the spine. By practicing Yoga, this serpent will be awakened and made to move upwards, piercing ...

... structure the sun god sat and rose and set. Clearly things were not as they are now and theories with the sun god depicted as the present Sun find themselves in extreme difficulties at the outset. Mythological connections point unerringly towards the conclusion that the sun god was in fact Saturn, who sat as a huge brightness on top of a column of bright material in the north. The diurnal turning of the Earth led to the appearance of a revolving crescent illuminated by the real Sun and within the circle of Saturn's face could be seen the smaller circle of Venus and the even smaller Mars. The myths further point to the probability that at some point Mars descended towards the Earth ...
