191. Saturday: Introduction [Journals] [SIS Review]
... in showing that geological events, the time scales and the causes of depositions and upheavals were suspect then conventional geological interpretation had to be suspect. There was a linkage between both weaknesses. Velikovsky's paper Cosmos without Gravitation provided an alternative and dramatic new way of understanding the message contained in his other publications. This could be simply expressed: if gravity/mass hypothesis was correct, he was wrong; if the solar system functioned electrically, he was right. There could be no fudging, no weird combination of both: it was either/or. This I found difficult to say the least. In his first two books, one challenging Astronomy, the other Geology, how ...
192. The Electric Universe -- The Big Picture [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... the Electric Universe, a project he has been developing over the last 40 years, and feels that it is just now coming together. We're reminded that Samuel Johnstone said that "Nothing is achieved if all the objections have to be solved first". And that Velikovsky, in Worlds in Collision, wrote that it is a heresy that gravity was the dominant force in nature. Wal goes on to tell us that the Electric Universe is also a holistic approach to science (a term which I feel is more encompassing, and easier to spell than interdisciplinary'). Wal says that science, still does not know all the answers, and that there is still little understanding ...
193. "Planet X and the Sunspot Cycle" (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... of the spiraling "time component" requires many calculations of exact reference points. Further development of these measurements is of primary importance in resolving the issue. PRESENT ODDITIES Planet X does not disturb the inner planets(7 ) . . . Only the orbits of the large outer planets . . . Therefore: The position of the center of gravity must be found far from the orbit of the inner planets . . . Wrong! If the inner planets are not being perturbed by Planet X and the large outer ones are, the velocity components of the smaller ones must already have been made synchronous to the components of the gravitational perturbations. There is no other cogent answer! A ...
194. Horizontal Landslides During the 1960 Chile Earthquake [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... or X, the shock was sufficiently strong to provoke translations of sedimentary material corresponding to 3, 5, 6 and 10 times the lHeight of the avalanche. Differences with normal avalanches There is a fundamental difference, which deserves emphasising, between these horizontal translations and all other avalanches (landslides, iahars, rockfalls, iceand snowavalanches), where gravity is the operative force. The horizontal component of the path of the avalanche is a function of 1) the kinetic energy acquired in the initial steep fall, 2) the greater of lesser fluidity of the moving mass, and 3) the slope of the receiving terrain. In the case of the normal collapse of a cliff ( ...

196. A Life's Work? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of simple harmonicity and reciprocal space and the tantalising Quasi-lattice model of plasma and universal gravitation. The last of these includes (p . 324) the observation that G ½ is dimensional charge/mass and is 2.58 x 10-4 esu per gram. That it may actually be electrostatic charge per gram thus offers itself as an explanation of gravity. But this naive interpretation has been avoided because of the formidable problems incurred by the apparently complete nonpolarity of gravity and the absence of a satisfactory mechanism for the accumulation of the required amount of charge on one body .. ." However he goes on to propose a possible solution and cites reasons including Blackett's discovery that the magnetic moment ...
197. The SIS, its history and achievements: a personal perspective [Journals] [SIS Review]
... energy of an atom. That's important because red shifts' have to be gradual, not something in chunks. I'm expecting great things of the astronomy community in the future. [ * Halton Arp was the first to claim this and was banned by his fellow astronomers from his telescope - Ed.] Nothing yet has been done to shake gravity. They're still working on a combined field theory' but are having great difficulty with it. I've read in The Guardian this week they've invented a detector for gravity waves, a machine that can detect the minute vibrations of a gravity wave. But they've got grave problems. If they set it up on an ordinary table the background ...
198. The Electric Universe: Slide Presentation & Notes by Wallace Thornhill [Journals] [Aeon]
... Thornhill's presentation compares close-ups of sunspots to Birkeland currents- the distinctive twisted filaments that plasmas form because of their long-range attraction and close-range repulsion. He speculates that sunspot activity, as well as the size and color of a star, are functions of the strength of the galactic plasma field the star is embedded in. In this viewpoint, even gravity becomes a variable, dependent on the electrical field in which an object is orbiting. Of course, no new theory can stand without predictions against which it can be tested, and Thornhill's predictions are no less outrageous than the rest of his theory. For example: ". .. there are no supermassive stars. The masses of ...
199. Part II: The Comet [Ragnarok] [Books]
... state approaching to that condition, and is therefore entirely in accordance with the notion formed on other grounds that the nucleus of the comet is a cluster of solid nodules or granules, and that the luminous coma and tail are jets and jackets of vapour, associated with the more dense ingredients, and swaying and streaming about them as heat and gravity, acting antagonistic ways, determine." 1 If the comet shines by reflected light, it is pretty good evidence that there must be some material substance there to reflect the light. "A considerable portion of the light of the comet is, nevertheless, borrowed from the sun, for it has one property belonging to it that ...
200. The Moon In Upheaval [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... ...It is difficult to believe that the interior of the Moon can support such stresses for geological periods of time. (20) What Urey means is that the lunar bulge cannot be many millions of years old, otherwise the bulge would be removed by isostatic forces. S. K. Runcorn, after calculating the force of gravity on the Moon, came to the conclusion that, "if solid state creep occurred on the Moon at one-trillionth the rate at which we know it occurs in laboratory materials at modest temperatures [the]...bulge would have disappeared long ago." (21) The germane point to be remembered is that the lunar bulge ...
