171. Velikovsky And Planetary Catastrophe [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... his friendship and scholarly discourses with the likes of Claude Schaeffer, one of the deans of modern archaeology; the eminent geologist, Harry Hess of Princeton University; Horace Kallen, founder of the respected New School for Social Research in New York; the esteemed Robert Pfeiffer of Harvard University; the pioneering psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud; and of course Albert Einstein, who edited the physics and mathematics sections of Velikovsky's publication Scriptas Universitatis. But was Velikovsky himself a physicist or astronomer? No. His training was in law, economics, history and medicine. Did he pretend to be a physicist or astronomer? No. But intensive historical research did lead him to believe that physicists and astronomers have ...
172. Epilogue (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... " "The cosmogonic implications on the formation of the solar system are staggering."(1 ) As described in the section "Jove's Thunderbolts," Velikovsky claimed that Jupiter sends out radio noises; he stated this on October 14, 1953, in his forum lecture at the Princeton Graduate College. In 1954, in his correspondence with Einstein, Velikovsky offered this claim as a crucial test of his theories. In 1955 B. F. Burke and K. L. Franklin discovered Jupiter's radio noises. For weeks neither man could believe the noises were actually emitted by Jupiter. Velikovsky claimed the existence of a magnetosphere above the terrestrial ionosphere that would sensitively reach as far as ...

... me "However much I try, I still find Velikovsky's planetary mobility completely lacking any scientific foundation". As Dr. Velikovsky has repeatedly pointed out, Newton's laws were formulated before anybody knew anything at all about mechanical forces of electrical origin. Newton's laws have proved exceptionally trustworthy over the last 300 years, though not absolutely inviolable (permitting Einstein some possibly ephemeral triumphs), and anything which appears to conflict at all seriously with them must obviously be viewed with scepticism. There seems to be no absolute reason why Newton's laws of motion should not be the resultant of rather more fundamental interactions, however, currently in a state of near balance but not necessarily always so.

174. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... is therefore recognised widely that the corona cannot be heated from within. The long-established theory to account for the Sun's hot corona is that its temperature is maintained by the breaking up of acoustic shock waves in the corona, dissipating their energy as heat. However, scientists have had to reconsider this theory in the light of information received from the Einstein X-ray satellite. This satellite has picked up X-ray emissions from many types of star, including dwarf stars whose expected X-ray output (if acoustically heated) should not have been detectable. It has been found that many stars have X-ray outputs far too high to be due to acoustic heating. The most likely heating mechanism for coronas now seems ...

... mind and personality. Here is de Grazia writing on Velikovsky's always-ambiguous relationship with "Authority": "V . was fixated on authority, the higher the better; he sought out acquaintances and enemies on high levels. But he did not gather intelligent up-coming young people until late in life; he has written a book on his conversations with Einstein, yet he would never have dreamed of writing a book of his immensely richer conversations with Juergens on electricity and Stecchini on ancient languages and the history of science. Why? Because they were unknown." ". .. V. was unhappy with the support he received. It seemed that he would get agreement and aid from ...

... Rupert Sheldrake (see "A New Science of Life" by Jill Abery in the Focus section of Workshop 4:3 , p. 18). There is, perhaps, a sense in which even this theory doesn't rule out the possibility of faster-than-light travel since such a rapport must necessarily involve something by way of communication, even though Einstein may have referred to "spooky action at a distance". In fact, just as there is a parallel between the mental processes of a human being and the neurological counterparts of these processes that can be observed and measured, it would seem to make sense that in a universe where there is total rapport between all its parts, ...

... writings, mostly published at the author's expense. We have the publications of the Flat Earth Society- desperately sincere. We have the theories on the origin of the solar system by the Fuller Brush man of Florida. We have the writings of the men who unfortunately were unable ever to go to school, but have herewith overthrown the theories of Einstein (as Dr. V. has overthrown Darwin and Newton and all the rest). A number of astronomical groups have talked about this business, and their sad conclusion generally is that we are in an age of decadence where nonsense stands higher than experiment and learning. Of course one should not pay any serious attention to these matters ...

THE BATTLE OF SAN FRANCISCO It was the fifteenth of February, 1974. The AAAS symposium on "Velikovsky's Challenge to Science" was only ten days away. Unable to sleep, Horace Kallen wrote to Velikovsky, commenting on a draft of one of the papers to be read there. The following morning he wrote another letter to Velikovsky, condemning those who classify alternatives, variations, innovations, differences as ...

... orthodox scientists if it is to maintain credibility in its claims of genuine open-mindedness. I would not claim that in SIS we are beyond reproach in such matters but over the years we have tried to assess both orthodox and dissident work in an open-minded critical way - and you will find many disagreements with Velikovsky in our pages - alongside criticisms of Einstein and many others. . . . .I enclose a copy of an article from the current New Scientist about the findings of the latest Jupiter probes, entitled Puzzling Plasmas'. To accompany it, I enclose an article by Ralph Juergens, which was published in the American journal Pensée in autumn 1972 under the title Reconciling Celestial Mechanics ...
