301. Commemoration Of The 2300bc Event [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Engineering and an MSc in Systems Engineering and Operations Research. He is a retired Systems Engineering Manager, spending 36 years at RCA, generally in concept development engineering on advanced major military systems, mainly radar, ballistic missile defense, command/control, navigation and undersea warfare. He has written two unpublished books: the first on cultural and geophysical events occurring at 2300 BC (excerpts of this book have been published by the SIS) and the second book dedicated to the thesis that all the early mythology developed from an encounter of the Earth with a massive meteoroid stream in 2300BC. Introduction The Earth's encounter with the Taurid meteoroid stream in 2300BC was a terrifying experience, involving heavy ...

302. The Bedrock of Myth [Articles]
... clues along the trail of retrospective tracing. One of the absurdities to which these false clues can lead is the north celestial polar Saturn. The latter is thoroughly weighed and found thoroughly wanting in the essay "The Unworkable Polar Saturn" [published with revised title in Aeon 1:3 , CLE], in terms of celestial mechanics, geophysics, palaeoclimatology, and palaozoogeography. Those who have been regarding the polar Saturn as if it had been a reality have not paid proper heed to the significance of the fact that connections of gods with planets are found in the later and not in the earliest sources of myth. To abandon the planetary and retain the north celestial polar aspect ...

... of stars. It is part and parcel of every natural transaction. Perhaps it is the hunger of protons for electrons that initiates all natural behavior, whatever the scale or intensity. Earth scientists have been reluctant to admit electricity to their domain. There is a confined interest in "hard" lightning, taken over by metereologists now, and geophysics must trespass upon nuclear physics in connection with chemical bonding and radioactivity. Historically, earth scientists have led the parade of debunkers when meteoroids were reported to fall or when lightning took unusual forms. Of course, when geologists stood upon mountain tops and St. Elmo's fire flowed from their beards and hammers, they could not well deny this ...

304. Falling Dust and Stone [Books] [de Grazia books]
... Tortured Earth, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents PART TWO: EXOTERRESTRIAL DROPS Reasoning from exoterrestrial exploration and the shapes and chemistry of the Earth's crust, and with a strong assist from early human legends, the origins of some material of the Earth's surface is assigned to fall-outs. They range from invisible gases to giant meteoroids. The geophysical column commonly displays exoterrestrial products and their effects. We stop short of using exoterrestrial fall-out like a magician pulling everything out of a hat. If still we appear extreme, it is well to recall that the physicist Alfven theorized that the Moon was at first a much larger aggregate which broke up, showering upon the Earth the whole of ...

... in Earth in Upheaval to support his concept was explained away by his uniformitarian opponents as they invoked ad hoc gradualist models. When this could not be done, as, for example, to explain away a 1300-foot beach in the Andes mountains and other high beaches elsewhere, without numerous intermediate beaches between them and the sea, the geologist and geophysicist critics ignored this evidence in unison- thereby denying the facts to themselves. Velikovsky's correct celestial predictions, which ran counter to the prevailing expectations of the astronomical community, were also treated this way. How, then, did this uniformitarian concept grow to be so influential? In all geology classes taught at universities, this gradualist interpretation is presented ...

... of the sub-crustal magma started. The whole equilibrium of the globe was altogether upset. A new equator line had now to be balanced out. This entailed also a shifting of the poles. The North Pole, which had been situated somewhere near Wrangel Island during the stationary period, began to move away towards the Bering Strait. But these geophysical changes, great though they were, were by far surpassed by tremendous geological happenings. The sudden eastward leap of the satellite caused the great ovoid distortion of the Earth to become unstable. It started almost immediately to subside to some extent, and the terrestrial surface over a wide area began to split and crack into slabs. The deeply ...

... the mud there. After this cosmic uproar had been going on for some time an amazing thing happened: The Sea began to sink. For, the Satellite's pull gone, the tropical water-belt of the girdle-tide ebbed off north and south in terrific ring-waves. Also the waters of the Inter-Andean Sea, whose peculiar level was not the result of geophysical reasons but the consequence of the Satellite's gravitational pull, became redistributed. They sank in the north and rose in the south of the Altiplano. In the north of the Meseta, Lake Titicaca soon came into existence with practically its present extent and general aspect. In the south of the Asylum, on the other hand, even more ...

... are also important electromagnetic effects but there has been little work on this yet. We were very pleased to welcome a second speaker, John Milsom, who had unfortunately been unable to let us know that he could speak in time for us to inform members. John was introduced as a geologist but hastened to inform us that he is a geophysicist, though the subtlety of distinction is perhaps a little lost on many of us. He spoke to us about revolutions in the Earth sciences, outlining events in geology during the 70s which eventually overturned old views and led to a completely new world view, despite the powerful resistance of the establishment. Our speaker suggested that a look at ...

... The hydrothermal vents which occur in the oceans along oceanic ridges spew forth minerals at a phenomenal rate, building up thick deposits in months and not the millennia geologists used to allow. Cretaceous upheaval Scientific American February 1995, pp. 66-70 Not all ocean floors have been produced by the slow spreading of tectonic plates favoured as an explanation for most geophysical processes these days. The western Pacific has entirely different characteristics and dates from the mid-Cretaceous. It appears to have been rapidly produced by a superplume' of magmatic material which gave rise to a muddle of undersea plateaux and seamount chains. There were also several vast outpourings on land but the oceanic plateaux are far larger. An interesting observation ...

... allow us to appreciate the principal idea. And as we shall see as this argument develops, it is possible to recover many of the missing bits from other similar reports which are found elsewhere in the world. For the loss of Atlantis was not a `local' occurrence but only one aspect of contemporaneous, sudden, `world-wide' geophysical changes. Even Plato's myth hints at the greater extent of the cataclysm which caused the end of Atlantis. Let us now analyse Plato's myth and assess the factual value of its various important statements. At the outset it should be stressed that then the entire `Mediterranean Basin', all Europe, and, indeed, the whole world ...
