31. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... : thank you for letting me know through Jan about your reactions to the German edition, and I feel indepted to your good will. Since the middle of this month I have been hard at work reading through the newly set Welten. I ? m sorry a new or additional foreword was not possible in time; the page-proofing is now too far advanced, however, to have it in the first edition. But I am enclosing a copy of the appendix to be tabelized within the pattern across two pages, i.e. four columns: Advance Claim (I am using ? Analyse- Prognose ? in German); Contemporary Doctrine, Reported Evidence; Today ? s Dogma. Your columns will be emphasized in italics. Please ask Jan to write very quickly in case you find a correction should be necessary. Next, in the first days of January, I shall have the first 20 pages of Peoples to judge. I shall then have to decide with Mr. Curths if the translator. Dr. Joachim Rehork, who has translated an English range of ...

32. Society News [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... earlier in the year been on the Egyptian cruise, the wealth of illustrative material struck a reminiscent chord, and for those who had not visited Egypt it served as a pleasant lightning tour. 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 plant naturally growing in Egypt, but which are remarkably like the giant Hogweed. Both Lily and Hogweed are found only further north in the mountainous regions of the Zagros and Caucasus. Arched roofs ...

... programmes). The authors of that paper clearly share Daniel Kline's enthusiasm for Young's works, 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 knew for the communication of knowledge' and Todhunter and Pearson4: 'among his vast attainments in sciences and languages that of expressing himself clearly in the ordinary dialect of mathematicians was unfortunately not included'. Maybe the enigma of his relative obscurity is at least partly explained. It is difficult to read Kline's ...

34. Sunspots Still Surprise Investigators [Thunderbolts Website]
... or margins of the sunspot. For many years solar physicists have claimed that these filaments were convection cells, typical of heated gases. But the higher-resolution details shown here, including the twin bridges across the sunspot, do not support traditional theory. All of the structure shown is consistent with the principle of anode tufting, a plasma discharge effect expected of a positively charged electric Sun. High-resolution images of the penumbra filaments have revealed the distinctive characteristics of tornado-like charge vortices. By giving us a peek beneath the tops of the rotating discharge columns, sunspots enable us to view directly the columns explosive rise from below, as they heat and project plasma upward into the bright photospheric granules. For conventional theory, sunspot penumbrae remain a mystery: the standard solar model neither requires nor predicts such phenomena. In the electric model they are predictable. Electric discharges in plasma take the form of long, thin and twisting filaments. Because they are tornadic funnels of glowing plasma, they will appear darker in their centers, exactly as seen in the recent pictures. Convection cells ...

... of rationality.. ." Unfamiliar with Velikovsky's work at the time, Sackler's curiosity was aroused. After reading Velikovsky's books, he concluded that he had been taken in by Weaver and Gell-Mann (the latter had written in Physics Today, and Weaver in the AAAS Bulletin). As he puts it: "I had swallowed hook, line, and sinker, the exorcism of a scientific heresy. I had stumbled into the 'Velikovsky affair.'" In an effort to exorcize the exorcism, Sackler set about writing five successive columns dealing with Velikovsky in the Medical Tribune --a publication which goes to half a million physicians internationally. The rather lengthy columns' admirably written, summarized Velikovsky's work, the "affair" and the evidences. They were published during the latter part of June and July. Reader response, according to Sackler's office, was almost exclusively positive. PENSEE Journal V \cdrom\pubs\journals\pensee\ivr05\28media.htm ...

36. The Lost City Of Nan Madol [Science Frontiers Website]
... in Micronesia, Nan Madol lacks the well-publicized glamour of the Pyramids and Chichen Itza. If Nan Madol is not glamourous, it is certainly incongruous. Who would expect such huge stone structures to rise in the middle of nowhere? William Ayres, a University of Oregon anthropologist sponsored by the National Geographic Society, has been a recent researcher at Nan Madol. In an interview, Ayres described Nan Madol in these terms: "To withstand time and the sea, the artificial platforms were built in a staggeringly laborious process. Multiton basalt columns, formed by volcanic activity, were stacked horizontally, log-cabin style, to form outer walls. The inside was then filled with coral rubble to form a dry surface several feet above high-tide level. Radiocarbon testing finds signs of human habitation at Nan Madol as early as A.D. 500, and the megalithic construction was completed by about 1500." Besides incongruity and a certain bizarreness, Nan Madol does pose several problems: How were the huge, very heavy prismatic columns of basalt quarried and transported? Why was Nan Madol built ...

37. When Dust Storms Engulf Mars [Thunderbolts Website]
... the two Martian dust storm images above, it appears that the dust is being jetted upwards rather than being blown along the surface. This is explicable in the electric tornado model and explains how dust is raised efficiently many kilometers into the thin air and suspended for a time electrostatically. The role of violent vortices on the leading edge of dust storms is particularly clear in the image we ve placed here. Closer examination should show that these tornadoes form preferentially on high points and the sharp edges of craters or escarpments. The twisting columns on the leading edge of the storm suggest vertical movement that is inconceivable in an electrically inert near-vacuum. Perhaps the closest analog to these columns is the network of twisted filaments electric tornadoes, according to Thornhill seen most clearly erupting from beneath the Sun s photosphere on the margins of sunspots. The Electric Universe identifies the dust storms on Mars as electric discharges etching the surface in the same way that, in industrial applications, electric discharge machining etches metallic surfaces. Though the Martian tornadoes and dust storms lack the power ...

Experts now agree that analogous “dust devils” on Earth contain powerful electric fields. In the larger scheme of things, dust devils on Earth have always been treated as trivial phenomena. But this perception has changed with recent discoveries by investigators in Arizona and Nevada. They found that dust devils have a strong electric field, often exceeding 4,000 volts per meter. The discovery came as a surprise. Prior thermal and mechanical models of dust devils had predicted no electric fields. But ironically, it was discoveries on the planet Mars that provoked a reconsideration of atmospheric vortices on earth. On Mars, “dust devils” much larger than terrestrial tornadoes sporadically rake across the ...
