71. Our Universe: Unlocking its Mysteries [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... not possible in the cosmos – take a new and unbiased look at the pictures coming back from NASA's probes and the images from their own telescopes – they would find strong evidence to support a view of cosmology different from the one espoused by mainstream astronomers – one that ancient man saw all too clearly. A group of astronomers, physicists, electrical engineers, and experts in the field of ancient mythology have begun to challenge some of the generally accepted hypotheses of the history of our solar system and conventional theories of cosmology. Many of these iconoclasts were influenced early on by the writings of the catastrophist Immanuel Velikovsky. Although there is general disagreement among this group with many of Velikovsky's specific ...
72. New Physics Supports Planetary Catastrophism [Journals] [SIS Review]
... me that the sun, the earth and other planets, the satellites, and the comets, are charged bodies [7 ], that the planets and their satellites have changed their orbits repeatedly and radically, and that gravitational attraction or the weight of objects has changed during human history. I thus recognized the fact that not gravitation, but electric attraction and repulsion and electromagnetic circumduction govern the solar system' [8 ]. I believe it was, in part, this simplistic overstatement that caused some of the hostility toward Velikovsky from professional astronomers. If gravity were due to electrostatic forces between charged bodies there would be many effects expected that we simply don't observe [9 ]. ...
73. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... In light of more than a century's research in the field of plasma cosmology and the 20th century discoveries of the space age, we can confidently propose the celestial thunderbolt as a common cause of the formation of canyons and rilles on rocky planets and moons." At that time I had not come to any conclusion about the details of the electrical event that created the colossal Valles Marineris canyons on Mars. Like geologists, I use a process of pattern matching when attempting to understand the processes that may have formed a feature seen on the surfaces of planets and moons. But unlike geologists, who have been seriously misled by astrophysicists and are now confused by what they see on Mars ...
74. ABC's of Astrophysics [Books] [de Grazia books]
... the earliest voices. Deg, on the other hand, even when he postulated ancient telescopes, could not explain away the concordance among ancient voices; did they have telescopes everywhere? Moreover the explosive speech of the modern skies and terrestrial crust were seeming to make a point. Not until 1980 did a space vehicle confirm the great and incessant electrical discharges of Jupiter, but then he had for fifteen years been persuaded that the legendary electrical behavior was real, and on a much large scale than anything that might be observed today. The same concordance on many other matters was consistent, too, with ancient legend. If the ancients had telescopes, they would have previewed the catastrophes ...
75. The Critics and Stellar Energy [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Let us start by investigating what is wrong with Juergens' model. First, as he admits, his model has the serious drawback of implying a potential gradient of 5 x 1012V/m at the outskirts of the galaxy, and not much less in the neighbourhood of our solar system. Besides this, there is the question of total electric current of the solar discharge, for which Juergens has assumed a figure that is much too high. Juergens arrived (ten years ago) at a current of 1015A by assuming that only protons follow the solar wind outwards from the sun, while the velocity of electrons is negligible. As we know today, protons and electrons travel in ...
76. The Electromagnetic Circularization of Planetary Orbits [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. IV No. 4 (Summer 1979) Home | Issue Contents The Electromagnetic Circularization of Planetary Orbits Chris S. Sherrerd ELECTROMAGNETIC FORCES There is evidence that the Sun and planets possess large electric charges. Any charged body moving in a magnetic field in any direction other than one that is precisely aligned with the field will be subjected to a force tending to change its trajectory. In general, the acceleration due to such a force will tend to make the body revolve or spiral around an axis parallel to the magnetic field, and the radius of curvature will be determined by the velocity of the body relative to the magnetic field, the mass of the ...
77. Pentecost [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VII:1 (Feb 1985) Home | Issue Contents INTERACTION Pentecost James F. Strickling Like the universe of which he is a part, man is an electrical creature. The natural currents within our bodies are small, but their role is extremely significant; they govern our very lives. These minute currents can nevertheless be disrupted or overridden. In particular, "extremely low frequency (ELF) fields have the capacity to penetrate buildings and living tissue and hence are potential biological stimuli."[1 ] And when this happens, our perceptions can falter and our reactions and response times might prove beyond our control. Such stimuli might have ...
78. To Begin the World Over Again [Journals] [Aeon]
... : Aeon Volume VI, Number 5 Home | Issue Contents To Begin the World Over Again Mel Acheson It has taken a long time for us to "make sense" of plasma phenomena. Except for the occasional flashes of lightning from clouds and sparks from cat fur, we just don't think of plasma in nature. Human senses don't detect electric or magnetic fields. Because we sense nothing, we assume nothing is there. Our nerves are connected in ways that organize our sensorimotor signals into intelligible gestalts, and the categories and concepts that emerge from this activity are circumscribed by what is sensible. [1 ] No sensory input results in no conceptual output, and so our theories ...
79. Pendulums and Sunspots [Journals] [Aeon]
... real "pendulum, suspended on a ball and resting on an anistropic support." It was swung back and forth, up and down, over a period of 14 minutes, then started again during a 27 day period. It was thus a pendulum clearly designed to test gravity. Additionally- and please note- Allais's pendulum was not electrically charged. The several electrical effects that Ellenberger invokes, therefore, pertain to its motion only if these effects influenced the pendulum gravitationally. In discussing the difference between Saxl's pendulum and "conventional Kater-type pendulums," Ellenberger notes: "This distinction is important because these other instruments are designed specifically to measure g and Saxl's pendulum is not. ...
80. The Photosphere: Is It the Top or the Bottom of the Phenomenon We Call the Sun? [Journals] [Kronos]
... is possible only if established physical principles are disregarded. It seems only reasonable, then, to question the theory that leads us to seek evidence of convection in the body of the Sun. II The structure of the solar atmosphere strongly suggests that the Sun is fueled not from within but from without, and that the energy-delivery mechanism is an electric discharge.(20) Can photospheric granulation find an acceptable explanation in terms of such a premise? Perhaps so. The fundamental sameness of the media inside and outside a photospheric granule is a fact to be reckoned with and may indeed be an important clue. There is a rather pronounced step, both in gas density and in luminosity ...
