1. EARLY GLASSMAKING AND CHRONOLOGICAL PUZZLES [Journals] [Aeon]
... wish to express my gratitude for the generous bibliographic assistance of Frau Faulstich (Library of the Deutsche Glastechnische Gesellschaft/Frankfurt/M .) , Frau Herrmann (Library of the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe/ Hamburg), and Herrn Zamia (Library of the Schott Glaswerke/Mainz am Rhein). The information available now on early Mesopotamian glass, while considerably greater than before, is still incomplete and full of gaps. The philological and archaeological evidence are both related but do no show a parallel development, nor do they share the same history. The glass objects do not illustrate' the history of this particular class of cuneiform literature and the texts are useless in helping us ...
2. A Hypothetical Ancient Telescope [Journals] [Horus]
... rediscoveries of ancient knowledge. Electroplating, mechanical clocks, steam engines, concentrating mirrors, and the circumnavigation of Africa are certain and sure examples. Since less than ten percent of the writings of the ancient world survive, it is likely there are many more examples of lost discoveries. Archaeological evidence from Pompeii shows that the ancient Romans used water-filled glass globes to magnify words on manuscripts. Later, and independently, the tailors and seamstresses of the Pennsylvania Harmonite Society discovered the uses of glass globes as lenses when these glass globes were filled with water, circa 1845. It's likely that the magnification abilities of glass globes filled with water have been discovered many times in the past and applied ...
3. What's Opera Doc? [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:1 (May 2000) Home | Issue Contents What's Opera Doc?Glass discusses opera at MFA Philip Glass, lecturing at the Museum of Fine Arts, December 4. A well-filled auditorium at the Museum of Fine Arts last Wednesday heard composer Philip Glass comment on his operas, Akhnaten in particular. The theme of the latter being Egyptian, it was left to the Museum's curator for Egyptian art to introduce Glass- as the main composer since Verdi to gather inspiration around the Nile. The evening did not quite come up to expectations. Contact with Akhnaten's actual performance consisted of some ten slides and no more than a few minutes of taped ...
4. Chapter 15 Dark Ages Based on Dark Scholarship [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... "From first to last there was no question that this whole burying-ground belonged to what is called the Mycenaean Age, the characteristics of which are already abundantly known from the tombs of Mycenae . . . and many other places in the Greek islands and in Egypt." So far so good. But the pottery, porcelain, gems, glass, ivory, bronze, and gold found in the tombs all presented one and the same difficulty. From the Egyptological point of view many objects belong to the time of Amenhotep III and Akhnaton, supposedly of the 15th to the 14th centuries. From the Assyrian, Phoenician, and Greek viewpoint the same objects belong to the period of ...
5. Thoth Vol III, No. 10: July 30, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... like to know where all of the sand [in the Sahara] came from too. As if in answer to my rhetorical question, on the 16th I saw a featured article in New Scientist of 10 July titled "The riddle of the Sands". The subtext reads: "Deep in the Sahara lie vast deposits of incredibly pure glass. Nothing on Earth could have created them." It mentions the green glass forming the heart of a scarab found in Tutankhamen's tomb that is made of such glass. Walter Alter had written about this subject on 7 April and it was reprinted in Thoth III-8: .. . An Italian geologist has taken a close look at the ...
6. On The Origin Of Tektites [Journals] [Kronos]
... wealth of lunar geologic material which the U. S. astronauts succeeded in returning to Earth, in no way could it be said that the few and scattered manned landings on the Moon had "dispelled" such an origin for tektites. When I wrote my 1975 article, I was unaware of the existence of a paper, "Tektite Glass in Apollo 12 Sample," written by John A. O'Keefe of the Laboratory for Space Physics, Goddard Space Flight Center, which appeared in the June 5, 1970 issue of Science. In that article, O'Keefe analyzed the comparison of one of the lunar rocks (sample # 12013), returned by the team of Apollo 12 ...
7. The Ruined Face of a Classic Beauty [Books] [de Grazia books]
... it was before? The moon is enveloped by a crust of igneous anorthosite to the depth of 35 kilometers, "which must have resulted from melted rock of at least twice that depth." [2 ] Lunar rocks were discovered to have undergone heating and bubbling, probably more recently. A large part of the soil consisted of tiny glass spheres, probably resulting from the evaporation of boiled lunar rock that collapsed back upon condensation in the cold. Some trace of organic, aromatic hydrocarbons were found in lunar sample returned by the astronauts of Apollo XI. Carbide rocks were found on the lunar surface. Rocks of the moon also revealed magnetic properties, a remanent magnetism that could ...
8. ASTROBLEMES AND GASTROBLEMES [Journals] [Aeon]
... zone with high temperature minerals (stishevite, coesite, etc.) and shocked minerals to 4 km. The vaporisation caused volcanic ejection, which spread a "mega-breccia" blanket to 15 km from impact centre and smaller fragments to almost 42 km. This material was mechanically excavated without being melted. Following it, explosively ejected melted rock, glass, and bombs of mixtures of melted and unmelted components (called "suevite") were spread to 25 km, in many places deeply burying the megabreccia. The residual crater floor, 23 km in diameter, is covered by less than 20 meters of lake sediments, under which congealed suevite comprises a glass lake that penetrates deeply into ...

Green Glass from Hadley Rille An electric current flowing through an underground breakdown channel on a waterless planet like the moon would necessarily be flowing in molten rock. The breakdown mechanism is dielectric breakdown, and more specifically, thermal breakdown, the peculiarities of which are discussed in some detail by Whitehead (44). I mention this here only to establish ...
10. Velikovskian Catastrophes in the Revelation of St. John [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Anyone who has looked to the stars with a simple field telescope knows that the universe looks like ice; many more stars are visible then. Now astronomy tells us that the universe at its ends is in rapid motion. For those in heaven, therefore, the universe will look like moving ice or as "something like a sea of glass like crystal" [Revelation 4:6 ]. Creation has been put by the Creator before his throne! Let us examine some other places where the "sea of glass" occurs in the Bible. In Revelation 15:2 heaven is preparing for the last plagues. John sees "as it were a sea of glass mingled ...
