51. Quantum Mechanics Is Definitely Spooky [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 114: Nov-Dec 1997 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Quantum mechanics is definitely spooky "I cannot seriously believe in [the quantum theory because it cannot be reconciled with the idea that physics should represent a reality in time and space, free from spooky actions at a distance." (Ref. 1) So Einstein wrote Max Born in March 1947. Well, even Einstein could have been wrong! "It's getting even spookier out there. Particles can be strangely connected over at least ten kilometres, according to results from physicists in Geneva. Using pairs of "entangled" photons, Nicolas Gisin and his colleagues from the University of Geneva have shown that the measurement of one particle will instantaneously determine the state of the other." (Ref. 2) This particular spooky aspect of quantum mechanics was demonstrated 15 years ago over a distance of just a few meters. Many physicists had expected (probably "hoped") that this "mysterious link" between separated ...
52. July 21, 1954 [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... July 21, 1954 On July 21st, 1954 our meeting again took place in Einstein ? s study, and lasted for three hours, from 8:30 pm to 11:30 pm. When in our conversation I reminded him that in 1946 he had agreed that the causes of the global catastrophes were extraterrestrial, he answered: ? I was too rash to agree.? I replied, ? Do you rely on your memory more than on your judgment?? implying that he agreed when my material was fresh before him, and disagreed when he hardly could remember much of it. Einstein still found attractive Hapgood ? s theory that ice covers growing asymmetrically caused the Earth ? s crust to slide. He wished to explain the catastrophes as the result of forces in the Earth itself. I asked how asymmetries of a few degrees could bring the ice covers to latitudes of 45 degrees where the crust would be the most liable to disbalancing. I also pointed out that his rejection of the theory of isostasy, which claims that mountain ranges rest on ...
53. Mars and the search for Life [Kronos $]
... for the supposedly safe remote locations where chances for organic life would be practically non-existent in the first place, as the gathered "expert" information would seem to indicate? Even right here on Earth, if extra-terrestrial beings sent probes to our planet and landed one vehicle in the arid, barren Sahara Desert, and the other one near the polar ice cap, the chances for picking up organic life would be scarce indeed, but the probability and propensity does exist. During the years 1947-1950, my father discussed with his friend Albert Einstein many stimulating and explorative topics, one of them being the existence of life evolution on Mars. It has been stated time and time again that the environment of Mars is too hostile for organic matter, what with the lack of moisture, the absence of a substantial magnetic field and the extremely rarified atmosphere to shield off ultraviolet and other deadly short wave radiation from the Sun, plus the intense cold. Since it has already been proven that the established scientific community has been wrong about the magnetic field of Jupiter, the presence ...
54. On the Advance Claim of Jupiter's Radionoises [Kronos $]
... I even considered theoretically a system in which gravitation is completely supplanted by electromagnetic effects with the charged planets travelling in the magnetic field of the Sun, itself being a charged body that by its rotation creates the magnetic field permeating the solar system; I also contemplated the existence of magnetic shells that would be the determinative of the planetary distances (Bode's Law). Since 1941, 1 insisted that electromagnetic interrelations in the solar system cannot be ignored-- this was the theme of my long debate, in writing and oral, with Einstein-- from August 1952 to his death in April of 1955. At some point in our debate (in a letter written in June 1954) I offered to stake our debate on whether Jupiter sends out radionoises (of non-thermal nature, as I already claimed in my Forum Lecture of 14 October, 1954), to which he reacted skeptically, yet was greatly surprised when nine days before his death I brought to him the news (New York Times of April 6, 1955) that such radionoises were accidentally detected. ...
55. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... A. Einstein 112 Mercer Street Princeton New Jersey, U.S.A den 27. August 1952 Herrn Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky 4 Hartley Avenue Princeton, N.J. Sehr geehrter Herr Velikowsky: Der Grund für die energische Ablehnung der von Ihnen vertretenen Meinungen liegt nicht in der Annahme, dass bei der Bewegung der Himmelskörper nur Gravitation und Tragkeit massgebend seien. Der Grund für die Ablehnung liegt vielmehr in der Tatsache, dass die zeitlichen Anderungen der Sternorter im Planetensystem sich auf Grund dieser Annahme mit einer unvorstellbar grossen Genauigkeit haben berechnen lassen. Gegen solches präzises Wissen kommen Spekulationen von der Art, wie sie von Ihnen vorgebracht worden sind, für einen Sachkundigen nicht in Betracht. Deshalb muss Ihr Buch dem Fachmann als ein Versuch erscheinen, das Laien-Publikum irre zu fuhren. Ich muss bekennen, dass ich selber zuerst auch diesen Eindruck hatte. Erst nachtraglich wurde mir klar, dass absichtliche Irrefuhrung Ihnen ganz ferne lag. Freundlich grüsst Sie Ihr Albert Einstein Translation: 27th August, 1952 Dear Dr. Velikovsky: The reason for the energetic rejection of the opinions presented by you lies not in the assumption ...

58. Monitor [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... comment from the scientific intellectual 'shareholders'..." And his complaint is a familiar one to Velikovskians, for he writes: "So the anonymous authority who hides behind the New Scientist Feedback columns (" It's rubbish by Jove", 24 July, p.311), considers the idea that Jupiter may once have been a neutron star a most amusing one. Well, as he says, it's a free world. But is it?" JUPITER'S X-RAYS- New Scientist 14/8/80 p.522 Results from the orbiting Einstein observatory have indicated that Jupiter emits X-rays. It is therefore the only planet so far to be detected to emit X-rays, other than Earth itself. It is thought that the X-rays are produced when highspeed electrons trapped in the Jovian magnetic field spiral downwards and hit gas atoms in the atmosphere. RELATIVITY RULES O.K.?- New Scientist Space does not permit us to go into any great detail on the subject of Einstein and his theories of relativity, but we mention here a debate which has been carried in the pages of ...
59. A Comet Grazing the Sun [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... A Comet Grazing the Sun The problem between Einstein and myself was always the same, and we were equally obstinate: he because the mathematical model coincided with such unimaginable precision with the natural events, nowhere better observable than in the celestial sphere with the planets and their satellites on the prescribed paths; I, because it appeared to me that these exact coincidences between theory and nature had been achieved at the cost of a grievous omission of electrical charges and fields. Natural catastrophes which I discovered to have taken place were my starting point, but these catastrophes were denied, and my description of the phenomena that accompanied them evoked the accusation that I had committed an outrage against the entire house of science. Yet even independently of what I read in ancient sources, historical or legendary, the picture of the solar system in which electricity and magnetism were absent and denied a role was strange to me. Once I read that the Jewish people produced the geniuses of Marx, Freud, and Einstein the three men who so greatly influenced the world of today because by ...

... law and ancient history. Meanwhile, in 1915 he resumed work towards a medical degree at the University of Moscow, and in 1921 he received his medical diploma. The next few years Velikovsky spent in Berlin, where he and Prof. Heinrich Loewe founded and published Scripta Universitatis with funds supplied by Velikovsky's father. In this series of volumes, conceived as a cornerstone for what would become the University of Jerusalem, contributions from outstanding Jewish scholars in all countries were published in their native languages and in Hebrew translation. The late Albert Einstein edited the mathematical-physical volume of the Scripta. In Berlin Velikovsky met and married violinist Elisheva Kramer of Hamburg. Later the same year the young couple moved to Palestine, and the doctor began his practice of medicine. For fifteen years this practice- first as a general practitioner in Jerusalem, and later, after psychiatric training in Europe, as a psychoanalyst in Haifa and Tel Aviv- occupied most of Velikovsky's time. Nevertheless, he published a number of papers on psychology, some in Freud's Imago. In one paper, to ...
