72. Reflections Of The Persian Wars [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... ) (Emphasis added.) There is additional evidence that the rule of the Sea Country was actually the rule of Hellenistic Greece over Babylonia. Historians have found that the evidence indicating a sudden change in Mesopotamia- the development of a flourishing art- is found in a cuneiform tablet "inscribed with secret recipes for making...various kinds of glass, each bearing a trade name." (54) The glass-making technique was so advanced as to be a cherished mystery among glass makers, and so cryptic information was passed down in a language only decipherable to workers in the trade. The precise date of the tablet is unknown, but "it would seem to be about a ...
73. THE YOUTHFUL ATMOSPHERE OF VENUS [Journals] [Aeon]
... We thought there couldn't be rocks on Venus-they would all be annihilated by erosion- but here they are, with edges absolutely not blunted. This picture makes us reconsider all our concepts of Venus.(21) THE ENERGY PROBLEM Nor is there a clear explanation for the tremendous energy that is moving the dense atmosphere. According to Billy P. Glass, "The pressure at the surface [of Venus] is approximately 90 bars, which is equivalent to the pressure in the ocean on earth at a depth of nearly 1 km [3 ,000 feet] below sea level."(22) This energy problem ties in with the enigma of Venus' rapid flow pattern of ...
... the development of an Encyclopedia of Quantavolution and Catastrophism was firmly rejected. (53) Velikovsky permitted journalists Martin and Ann Waldron to have three interviews with him if he could read their reports before their publication. (54) To them he looked ageless: he was still putting in twelve-hour days at his desk and could still read without his glasses; and although he was more than six feet tall and just a few days shy of eighty-one years old, he was still supple, "curling up in an armchair like a teenager." He told them, "Your writing will be remembered only for what you write about me," but artfully dodged personal questions. " ...
75. Of the Moon and Mars, Part 2 [Journals] [Pensee]
... New York: Dover Publications, 1969], p. 458) point out that cathode disintegration through the expulsion (sputtering) of atoms of metal was first reported by Plücker in 1858. The cleanup process includes, in addition to the sputtering of cathode metals (an effect long in use technically in the production of semi-transparent metallic films on glass for optical purposes), the generation of considerable fine dust and of cathode-material vapors, which condense and produce fallout beyond the confines of the immediate cathode "spot" or "crater" in which a discharge burns. This last effect suggests a likely source for the Moon's ubiquitous glassy-sphere soil particles. 75. Baldwin, The Measure of ...

77. Velikovsky: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow [Journals] [SIS Review]
... interview took place in the spring of 1969 at his home in Princeton, N.J ., fifty miles southwest of New York City. At one point during our long conversation he did something that, I recently learned, he sometimes did with others. He stretched out on the analyst's couch in his living room, raised his reading glasses until they were perched on his forehead, and asked me for advice. How could his ideas be presented more effectively? Should he publish new volumes of his Ages in Chaos series or wait until more information was available? I was flattered, to say the least. Then he turned his attention to me. Had I read his ...
78. The Tide, Part 1 Venus Ch.3 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... apart and heaped up like walls in a double tide.(6 ) The Septuagint translation of the Bible says that the water stood "as a wall," and the Koran, referring to this event, says "like mountains." In the old rabbinical literature it is said that the water was suspended as if it were "glass, solid and massive."(7 ) The commentator Rashi, guided by the grammatical structure of the sentence in the Book of Exodus, explained in accordance with Mechilta: "The water of all oceans and seas was divided."(8 ) The Midrashim contain the following description: "The waters were piled up to the ...
79. The Timna Test [Journals] [Aeon]
... additional Dynasty XVIII activity in the Arabah, not immediately associated with mining, posited by a brace of otherwise anachronistic discoveries at Timna, should be guaranteed to raise eyebrows. The first, and by far the least significant, hint of such a presence is offered by Rothenberg himself who grants Dynasty XVII an honorable mention concerning the recovery of some glass fragments: "Numerous fragments of Egyptian glass were found in all parts of the temple...This whole group belongs, from the point of view of typology and decoration, to the end of the XVIIIth and to the XlXth Dynasties." [8 ] Engraving 2- Timna (after Beno Rothenberg) Based on well defined ...
