81. Yet Another Chapter... [Journals] [Pensee]
... So it is possible to do experiments in which we mix together those gases, primarily hydrogen, methane, ammonia and water- we can also add, for example, hydrogen sulfide- and supply some energy and see what molecules are made .. . One such experiment done several years ago in our laboratory at Cornell, in which we had a glass reaction vessel, into which is inserted an ultraviolet source surrounded by a quartz jacket, and in this reaction vessel at this moment are the gases I've just mentioned. They are colorless; the only color .. . is from the irradiation. The gases are irradiated, and circulated out of the light and then back up in it ...
82. ...more Myths Monuments and Mnemonics: A Photographic Tour of Egyptian Antiquities [Journals] [Horus]
... its construction seems also to show a particular concern for the region of the celestial pole. On the Northface of the pyramid, a small box-like stone room tilts toward the northern sky. Inside, a life-like statue of Zoser, maintains its eternal watch through two small holes in the front wall. Though the statue is a copy and a glass window has been placed in one side-wall, the tiny cell still conveys directly and with some elegance the central role of observational astronomy in Egyptian religion and culture almost five-thousand years ago. As the divine authority on Earth, the pharaoh had a primary responsibility for the cosmic order. At the same time, at his death the resurrection of ...
83. Conferences [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... evolution. Of special interest are new observations and interpretations obtained from studies of the three very large terrestrial structures - Chicxulub, Sudbury, and Vredefort. Contributions dealing with the following topics are invited: * Impacts and Earth evolution * Impact structures and climate change * Role of target volatiles * Formation of melt sheets, melt breccias, and impact glasses in crystalline and sedimentary targets - melt sheets and melt breccias within the impactite sequence * Mass-movement of subsurface materials as revealed by macroscopic and microscopic observations from crater floors, mega-block zones, central uplifts, peak rings, and collar rocks* Impacts in marine environments * Impacts on other planets * Material response to hypervelocity impact - shock metamorphism * ...
84. The Aquatic Graveyards. Ch.2 Revolution (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... by powerful currents, and agitated by waves. A vast stratum of water-rolled pebbles, varying in depth from a hundred feet to a hundred yards, remains in a thousand different localities, to testify of the disturbing agencies of this time of commotion." Miller found that the hardest masses in the stratum" porphyxies of vitreous fracture that cut glass as readily as flint, and masses of quartz that strike fire quite as profusely from steel, - are yet polished and ground down into bullet-like forms. . . . And yet it is surely difficult to conceive how the bottom of any sea should have been so violently and so equally agitated for so greatly extended a space . . ...
85. Society News (AGM 2000) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... really have been Cosmic Blitz'. Han pointed out that he had chosen the word Blitz specifically for its meaning of lightning' and its association with the catastrophic destruction of London during World War II. Han opened his talk by showing a picture of the classic visual trick of two facial silhouettes which can alternatively be seen as a single wine glass. He suggested that many people suffered from paradigm blindness', when they see only the one image and in their confrontations with those who can see the other image forget their notions of fair play. His interest in catastrophism had been rekindled by Alvarez's book about the death of the dinosaurs, in particular the observation that in addition to ...
86. Hardy, Tess and Psychic Scotoma [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... weeds upon it, she found that he did the same on the other side. The fire flared up, and she beheld the face of d'Urberville.(2 ) [Emphasis added.] She was kneeling in the window-bench, her face close to the casement, where an outer pane of rain-water was sliding down the inner pane of glass. Her eyes rested on the web of a spider, probably starved long ago, which had been mistakenly placed in a corner where no flies ever came, and shivered in the slight draught through the casement. Tess was reflecting on the position of the household, in which she perceived her own evil influence.... She ...
87. Letters to the Editor C&AH 3:2 [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... . Turning to John Dayton's Minerals, Metals, Glazing and Man (London: Harrap, 1978), and bringing his analyses in line with the reconstruction, we immediately found what up till now were mostly thought to be pre-Venus catastrophe cultures actually fall forward into the era of inter-Venus-Mars catastrophes. With the "Mycenaean connection" of metallurgy, glass, and glazing technology depending on raw materials from Central Europe (ascertained by trace elements), cultures from Ubaid and Jemdet Nasr levels- where such connections existed- down to vast destruction levels (such as Mars catastrophe flooding, especially in southern Mesopotamia) must be examined in light of the earlier extra-terrestrial influences involved. The royal tombs ...
88. What has Happened to Worzel's Deep-Sea Ash? [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... ocean floor toward the higher parts of the relief and deepens in the lower parts, and disappears on the shelves. It extends from at least 12o N to 12o S, some hundreds of kilometers off the coasts of Central and South America. The layer is composed of very fine-grained (70-200 microns) unsorted shards of clear, colourless volcanic glass, with refractive index of 1.500. No crystalline minerals were detected. No regional trend in thickness was found. Because of this remarkable uniformity, both Worzel and Ewing e.a . were of the opinion that its extension was probably much greater, and quite possibly world-wide. The ash appeared to be similar, in composition ...

... the fall of a fiery metallic mass of unusual dimensions. This legend is also an integral part of the cosmogony of many other West African peoples, such as Mandinqoes and Bambaras. Many priests make a pilgrimage to the Lake or to the nearby town of Kumassi, and also many blacksmiths visit the Lake before initiation to their sacred profession. Glass from the impact rim around the Lake has been radiometrically dated at 1.3 to 1.6 million years, a period when Africa was inhabited by Australopithecines.

90. An Extraterrestrial Hypothesis [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... and quick (for 20-50 years) climatic and ecological changes took place, leading to the extinction of "mammoth fauna" and exerting a direct effect on mankind's evolution and appearance of civilizations. It is shown in the paper that the disaster under study was caused by the collision of the Earth with an eruptive comet, brought various volcanic tektite glasses from a remote planetary body. This extra-terrestrial source of tektites is proven by the well-known but not adopted paradox of tektite age, i.e . a difference in hundreds of thousands and millions of years between the radiogenic age of tektites (time of formation) and time of their fall onto the Earth. ...
