271. On Cosmic Electricity [Journals] [Pensee]
... " effects. Solar flares are associated with disturbances in the earth's rotation, as if the earth, too, were being driven electrically. (The continuous arrival of positively charged cosmic rays on earth suggests that our planet carries and continually renews a strong negative charge. Indeed, experiments performed some years ago by Quinn and Chang (Journal of Geophysical Research, 71, 1966, 253 and 72, 1967, 1611) indicate, in spite of the experimenters' pointed disclaimer, that the earth behaves as a secondary cathode in the solar discharge. By making a magnetized steel sphere the cathode in a laboratory discharge, Quinn and Chang produced miniature Van Allen belts, auroral discharges, ...

272. Plagues and Comets [Books] [de Grazia books]
... [46] - and is doubtful, given the history of earthquakes, which strike crowded quarters of the poors and let the rich flee to their courtyards. It may be more logical to give partial exemption to the people of Goshen from all the plagues simply because of the erratic nature of the disasters. Enough truth may rest in this geophysical separation to justify a later tale of a special dispensation for being Hebrew. So far as concerns the first-born, Moses had already proclaimed to the Pharaoh: Thus says the Lord, Israel is my first-born son, and I say to you, Let my son go that he may serve me'; if you refuse to let him ...

273. Homo Schizo Meets God [Books] [de Grazia books]
... measuring rod. All I can say at this stage is that I have spent some time with every method of measuring time that exists and in every case maybe found some Achilles Heel. To give one instance, it is possible to make a case for Olduvai events to have been contemporaneous with the destruction of the Cities of the Plain- geophysically, anthropologically and in legend. Not a good case, to be sure, but there has never been a study with this hypothesis in mind. And what I have discovered is that the whole world of rocks, skies, nature, and culture can be twisted into a short-term frame, hypothetically, scientifically, to where a whole ...

... giving 1014 times as much radio energy as the Van Allen belts around the Earth. ' "On 5 December 1956, through the kind services of H.H . Hess, chairman of the department of geology of Princeton University, Velikovsky submitted a memorandum to the U.S . National Committee for the (planned) IGY [International Geophysical Year] in which he suggested the terrestrial magnetosphere reached to the Moon. Receipt of the memorandum was acknowledged by E.O . Hulburt for the committee. The magnetosphere was discovered in 1958 by Van Allen. "In the last chapter of his Worlds in Collision, (1950), Velikovsky stated that the surface of Venus must ...

... with less dark matter at each radial distance inconcentric spheres. One can see the lengths to which astronomers and physicists will go to avoid questioning their most fundamental concept. A few years ago, the seeming discovery of discrepancies in gravity readings had led several physicists to suggest that a "fifth force" --a counterforce to gravity- existed. When the geophysicists argued that unseen masses under the Greenland ice cap could explain the measured discrepancy in gravity readings in the ice cap, Michael Nieto, a theoretical particle physicist from Los Alamos National Laboratory, argued, "You give him [a geophysicist] any data and he can mimic it with Newtonian physics....If he's got to ...

... been the center of considerable scientific controversy for at least five years. In Newton's own words (Science 166 [14 November 19691, p. 825), his studies make it "almost certain that there have been large changes in the accelerations [of the earth and the moon] within historic times .. . [and] known geophysical mechanisms explain neither the ancient value of [the lunar secular acceleration] nor the large change in [it] within historic times. . . ." Newton's article is subheaded: "Paleontology, satellites, and ancient astronomy yield accelerations that geophysics cannot yet explain." It would be unjust, of course, to infer from such ...

278. Venus -- A Youthful Planet [Journals] [Kronos]
... such a result. The few satellites with retrograde revolution are regarded to be captured bodies; retrograde rotation could be explained if Venus were a body captured by the Sun; but this would signify an entirely different cosmogony, for this planet, at least. The announcement of the Goldstone Tracking Station's scientists caused comment at the meeting of the American Geophysical Union at Palo Alto, California, the last week of December 1962, that "Maybe Venus was created apart from the other planets, perhaps as a secondary solar explosion, or perhaps in a collision of planets."(33) According to the story as revived in W. in C., Venus was captured by the ...

279. ABC's of Astrophysics [Books] [de Grazia books]
... celestial stability: Most celestial mechanics- orthodox and informed- would say that we suspect (it's probably no more than a hunch) that the solar system is stable over hundreds if not thousands of millions of years, but we cannot prove it by the methods of celestial mechanics that are available to us today. We have to go to geophysical, astrophysical and selenological evidence-and there, of course, we are again on ground which has been disputed by those who advocate the very short time scale. The fossil record would appear to have been laid down in the rocks over the past two thousand million years, and in those fossils we have very complicated animals. If ...

... , a definite group among the astronomers succeeded (not by thought-through arguments but by means of which none of the participants can be proud) to alienate the author from the scholarly profession. Historians did not need to take Ages in Chaos to heart. However, with the years and the accumulated evidence, mainly from the results of the International Geophysical Year and the Space Age, the astronomical and geophysical texts are being rewritten, new periodicals appear in great numbers dealing with mutations and evolution, paroxysms in nature, electrical and magnetic fields and forces in the solar system and in the universe in general- and not one of the advance claims of Worlds in Collision or Earth in Upheaval went ...
