161. Friday Evening Discussion [Journals] [SIS Review]
... figure out what is wrong with our present ideas. Wal visited Velikovsky in 1979, 6 months before he died, and asked him the following question: for your catastrophic theory to work, the Solar System must have reorganised itself very rapidly into the present situation which looks stable; in other words, there is something we don't understand about gravity. He got out a thin volume, Cosmos Without Gravitation and gave Wal it with the caveat that he did not necessarily believe everything in it and some of the ideas had come from one of his daughters but he still felt that gravity is essentially an electrical effect. Wal read journals, looking for clues. He saw a tiny ...
162. Sagan's Pseudo-sagacity: Style As A Reflection Of Character (Or The Lack Thereof) [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... , inflated English. Dr. Sagan informs us that even "if a black hole is invisible from the outside, its gravitational presence can be palpable." A black hole is a super-dense piece of matter. Can it be visible from the inside? Palpable means "capable of being felt by the fingers." Have you ever felt gravity with your fingers? The term occurs often in medicine, as in a "palpable breast tumor." By extension it sometimes refers to an emotion that can be sensed almost physically, such as "a palpable fear." If Dr. Sagan had written, "Even though a black hole is invisible, its gravity can be ...
163. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... with no corresponding symmetric structure below. The gas is emitting radio waves and is held in position by a previously unsuspected magnetic field running vertically through the centre of the Galaxy. Astronomer Dr Don Chance states: "We can see if we can embody the [newly discovered magnetic] force in our theoretical explanations". Astronomers generally employ only gravity in their theoretical explanations' and conceive a magnet as an independent entity, so there is little expectation of an electrical explanation for the magnetic field and the electromotive force which deflects the gas to one side only. Dr Chance's explanation for the lack of gas below the Galactic centre is that little or no gas is there to be trapped ...
164. Psychoceramics [Journals] [Aeon]
... to fill the gap, such as gravitational, magnetic, orbital, and rotational energies, and even more recently nuclear fusion, but with mixed reviews. The one mechanism notable by its lack of consideration- and apparent lack of enthusiasm- involves that of the Moon itself. And, it so happens that the barycenter (the center of gravity) of the Earth-Moon system exists some 1650 km beneath the surface of the Earth, which is well below the asthenosphere but just about at the transition zone between the solid and liquid phases of the mantle where tectonic activity is initiated. Oceanic tides raised by the close approaches of our lunar neighbor have been logged at seven to twelve feet ...
165. Thorium Enrichment in Crater Rims: Earth and Moon [Journals] [Aeon]
... concerning the rainbow snake which emerged from the ground to form the Wolfe Creek Crater.  This is especially of interest since this is a motif associated globally with celestial thunderbolts. Can the chemical composition of solids be changed by plasma? Yes, in several ways. EDM can deposit or peel away layers of material in defiance of gravity. This is because gravity is no obstacle to the much stronger force of electricity. The process of electrically removing or depositing layers is widely used in manufacturing. Harold Tresman has suggested that this process can seen on a much larger scale in pyroclastic flows from volcanoes. These outpourings, according to him, move so far and so fast ...
166. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... believed that a new particle (named a tachyon') had been discovered that did so, some scientists described it as living in reversed time', expiring before it was created, instead of merely going from A to B a little quicker than light could. In the General Theory, Einstein equates the effects of acceleration with those of gravity and claims that both reduce the rate at which atoms vibrate. At very high velocities, therefore, time appears to move more slowly; astronauts age more slowly because they are composed of atoms. That gravity has this effect has been proved. Light from the sun to Earth is slightly retarded by the sun's gravity - there are longer ...
167. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... a super-volcano. The most recent happened at Toba on the island of Sumatra 73,000 years ago and may have caused a massive human population crash as shown by our mitochondrial DNA. Yellowstone National Park in North America is apparentaly another such super-volcano capable of covering most of America in ash -and it is due to blow. MAGNETIC FIELD AFFECTS GRAVITY (New Scientist 21.9 .02. p. 14) Measurements of the strength of gravity at different locations on Earth are apparently being affected by the planet's magnetic field. The researchers are postulating extra hidden dimensions'. Wal Thornhill and Ralph Sansbury, with their theory of an electric universe, are probably rubbing their hands with ...
168. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... no longer checked or questioned the results of their predecessors. Humans did appear to improve over time in such things as I.Q . tests, Olympic records and new sports such as wind surfing, etc. Sheldrake did not expect to be able to answer all things with his theory; just as Newton's explanation of the action-at-a-distance effect of gravity as the will of God gave way to an unquestioned acceptance of an Einsteinian gravity field, so morphic resonance must first be accepted as a new field which could then lead to new theories. Asked about supposed criticism of his work by Prof. Paul Davies, Sheldrake replied that he had discussed his work with Davies who was certainly not ...
169. Electrostatics & Dust on Eros [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... photoelectric effect from solar UV was important enough to make it positive.] A dust particle sitting on the body's surface would have the same potential but carry a negligible charge. However, once it is kicked up (by an impact) and moves beyond the Debye shielding distance, its electric charge increases and affects its motion in the body's gravity field. Since the ratio of electrostatic to gravity force depends strongly on size of the dust particle, there will be a strong fractionation effect. Particles in a certain size interval will be able to hop over large distances before returning to the surface. The tiniest particles will escape. In addition, there will be interesting effects if the ...
170. Evidence of Planet Orbiting A Pair of Stars [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... ." Astronomers have detected only about 20 planets outside our solar system, all orbiting single stars, although some of those stars are in binary systems. Gravitational lensing is based on a property first noted by Albert Einstein in the 1930s. When an object such as a star or planet moves in front of a more distant star, the gravity of this star or planet serves as a "lens," magnifying the light from the distant star and making it appear brighter. The Microlensing Planet Search astronomers analyzed data from such an event that occurred in 1997, referred to as MACHO-97-BLG-41- the 41st microlensing event discovered by the Massive Compact Halo Objects (MACHO) collaboration that year ...
