151. Snowball Mini-comets [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1997:1 (Sep 1997) Home | Issue Contents Thoth Vol I, No. 16. June 15, 1997 Snowball Mini-comets By Wal Thornhill (email@example.com) Dr. Louis Frank's recent announcement of confirmation of his theory of icy comets bombarding the Earth has stirred up considerable controversy after more than a decade of rejection by most astronomers. The "proof" comes in the form of some images from orbiting spacecraft of glowing trails plunging toward the Earth, hundreds of kilometres above the surface. The glowing, ionized trails are said to emit the characteristic radiation of excited atoms and ions associated with water. The size ...
152. Archetypes Showing The Presence of Anomalous Electromagnetic Activity [Journals] [SIS Review]
... &C Workshop and C&C Review. He has presented and written for conferences on Parapsychology and Alternate Consciousness at Colorado State University and teaches courses on the practical usage of psychic abilities. Summary There is evidence that until quite recently, plasmic structures of varying lengths of stability or permanence were actually observed in the sky above Earth. So-called comets' observed and recorded in late Renaissance art were comparatively ephemeral and for the most part were manifestations of excess plasmic activity. The more permanent structures of plasma, mostly in the form of conglomerates of opposing magnetic fields, reflect both ancient art and myth. This presentation is intended as an introduction to the study of structures like these and ...

From Trevor Palmer <firstname.lastname@example.org> During my recent forays into early European history, I have come across the Annals of Xanten, from northwestern Germany, translated by Simon Coupland for a forthcoming volume with Manchester University Press about sources for the reign of Charles the Bald. You are probably already familiar with these Annals but, if not, the following extracts may be of interest to you. 810. The sun and ...

From: Kronos Vol. VIII No. 1 (Fall 1982) Home | Issue Contents Vox Populi Halley's Comet in Collision?To the Editor of KRONOS: The orbit of Halley's Comet has been projected back to 1404 B.C . using modern observations from 40 B.C . to 1910 A.D . as a base. The results were reported by Dr. D. K. Yeomans of Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the American Astronomical Society's Division of Planetary Sciences Meeting in Pittsburgh, October 13-16, 1981.

156. The Countdown to a New Celestial Hazard [Journals] [Aeon]
... are the dominant agents of catastrophe so far as our planet is concerned has long ceased to be an important question. So far as prediction is concerned, the problem has always been where these objects come from; and it was the Irish-Estonian astronomer Opik in the 1960's who first indicated that the Oort cloud was the likely source both of short-period comets and of Earth-crossing (i .e . potentially catastrophic) asteroids. Somewhat later, the American astronomer/geophysicist Urey was to associate short-period comets with mass extinctions and geological boundaries but a more general theory, combining both these proposals, was not obviously excluded. This led two British astronomers, Clube and Napier, to the suggestion that ...
157. The Electric Universe: Slide Presentation & Notes by Wallace Thornhill [Journals] [Aeon]
... to explore the Solar System from an electric point of view. He covers an enormous range of phenomena, from subatomic particles through stellar evolution, floodlighting our understanding of the universe with insights garnered from mythical symbols, space probes, and the plasma physics lab. As an illustration, let me compare the received explanation re the tail of Halley's Comet with Thornhill's electric account, both presented in light of photographs returned by the ESA spacecraft Giotto in March, 1986. The standard theory has it that: "Comets grow tails only when they get warm enough for ice and dust to boil off...[O ]n the [sunward side], jets of gas and ...
158. Encounters and Collisions [Books] [de Grazia books]
... CHAPTER ELEVEN Encounters and Collisions "Even heaven, despite the orderliness of its movements, is not inalterable." So wrote Laplace [1 ], who has been freely used to attest to the security of the celestial order. Nothing in his unparalleled mathematical and physical achievements kept him from soberly portraying the effects of collisions of the Earth with comets, and expressing the view that these had occurred and would probably again occur. He warned of movements that he could not take into account in his calculations, and mentioned the forces of electricity and magnetism whose effects were then unnoticeable. The gravitational balance of the solar system, he proved, however, was near perfect, an empirical ...
159. Cosmic Catastrophes and the Ballgame of the Sky Gods in Mesoamerican Mythology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... to confirm Farnell's statement - then the question arises whether it was in fact extraordinary events which led to the establishment of the Mesoamerican ballgame rituals and legends. In this paper, I shall critically discuss the cosmological background of various Mesoamerican ballgame legends which suggest that the origins of these conspicuous rituals are indeed linked to catastrophic events.

From: The Riddle of Prehistoric Britain by Comyns Beaumont CD Home | Contents Part One: Britain's Great Antiquity Chapter IV Where The Comet Fell "We must remember that this extinction (of the rhinoceros in Siberia) took place in comparatively recent times and that the animal disappeared from North Asia long after the appearance of man on the earth. . . . We are face to face with a mystery and it is clear the extinction of the rhinoceros all over Siberia must have been brought about by some unusual and tremendous cataclysm accompanied by an extraordinary change in climate.. . . Thus perished the Siberian rhinoceros overwhelmed by a catastrophe both sudden and tremendous." REV. D ...
