51. A Personal Report on, and Irreverent Look at, the World Conference 'Planetary Violence in Human History' Portland, Oregon, January 3-5, 1997 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... due, I believe, to an attack of pneumonia.) 5. Dinosaurs could not exist under present gravitational conditions. Ted showed a reconstruction of a giant dinosaur so large an elephant could have stood under its belly. The ratio of weight to size would have been so large that they would have needed a 3:1 attenuation of gravity to be able to walk. Only the presence of a larger moon, or Earth's position in something like the Saturnian configuration, would have made this possible. However, I was told by Wal Thornhill: The closeness of another planetary body to the Earth is not sufficient to attenuate gravity by pulling objects upward ( to the degree required ...
52. Vox Popvli [Journals] [Aeon]
... lost a lot of its original mass in interactions with the same Jupiter. Velikovsky was also of the opinion that Saturn's initial mass had to have been much greater, perhaps as great as that of Jupiter. [7 ] At some future date, we will return to the model and apply a greater mass to Saturn. The Speed of Gravity & High-Velocity Impacts Mike Twose, from Toronto, Ontario, writes: In the Forum section of AEON V:5 , Tim Thompson, from JPL NASA, wrote that the speed of gravity is the same as the speed of light. [8 ] I cannot think of an experiment that would show how fast gravity travels through space ...
53. Still Facing Many Problems (Part II) [Journals] [Kronos]
... and beyond. - LMG Part I, in KRONOS X:1 , discussed five topics: wild motions, the Sun's habitable zone, the Worzel ash, tree rings, and ice cores, and how they impact Veiikovsky's scenario for recent Earth history. This survey continues with discussions of ice ages, sea level, tippe top Earth, gravity vs. magnetism, and electric stars. ICE AGES: The previous section on the Greenland ice cores naturally suggests the subject of ice ages, which Velikovsky tied into his theory of cosmic catastrophism in Earth in Upheaval, Chapters VIII, IX, and X. At the time, no theory for ice ages answered all the questions posed ...
54. Thomas Townsend Brown [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... "Biefeld-Brown Effect." The "effect" concerned the observed tendency of a highly charged electrical condenser to exhibit motion toward its positive pole- the same motion observed earlier by Brown with his Coolidge tube. Even establishment science does not question the patently obvious relationship between electricity and magnetism, but the relationship of these two fields to the "gravity field" constitutes an area physics, which, more than twenty years after Einstein's death, is still largely incomprehensible to modern science. In general, most of orthodox science in the seventies does tend to recognize a loose linking or "coupling" effect of some sort between electrical and gravitational forces, but precious few scientists have seen fit ...
55. CANEPA: BOOK REVIEW [Journals] [Aeon]
... others, Weisman found the volume tedious and boring. He claims that the reader has to struggle through the rambling text and could not decide for whom the book is intended. The uninitiated, he believes, will easily get lost. He especially zeroes in on giant comets, galactic periodicities, interstellar capture, and new physics (" variable gravity") as some of the authors' "highly speculative and controversial ideas." Galactic periodicities and interstellar capture are viable possibilities. I, personally, did not come across a reference to "variable gravity." What the authors do state on page 259 is: The effects of the galactic tide, as with any other tidal ...
... So the next time you hear an authority claim that it has absolutely been proven that the Solar System was stable in the past, is now, and shall be forevermore, amen, perhaps you can detect just a hint of faith in the expression. There is no such rigorous proof, and this is so noted by rnany authorities. GRAVITY VERSUS ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS Velikovsky notes that the ancients observed electrical discharges between the Earth and external bodies during close encounters between them. It was then natural to conclude that the bodies were not at the same electric potential. He also noted that the tilting of the Earth's axis could be most easily accomplished by electromagnetic interactions between Earth and another body ...
57. Two Experiments Involving Gravity and Electromagnetism [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. IV No. 4 (Summer 1979) Home | Issue Contents Two Experiments Involving Gravity and Electromagnetism Immanuel Velikovsky Copyright © 1979 by Immanuel Velikovsky THE PENDULUM EXPERIMENT "In contrast to electric and magnetic fields, the gravitational field exhibits a most remarkable property, which is of fundamental importance. . . . Bodies which are moving under the sole influence of a gravitational field receive an acceleration, which does not in the least depend either on the material or the physical state of the body" (Einstein).* [* Footnote: A Einstein, Relativity, 11th ed., London, 1936, p. 64.] This law is supposed ...
58. Conclusion: Entropy [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... debunked most of the evidence of the Big Bang theory, 322 as well as the present book which superficially resembles that theory, that theory dominates. This new hypothesis makes a fundamental claim that no other theory makes or follows in any detail the route taken by this author, namely that electromagnetism is the fundamental counter force in celestial space to gravity and governs a host of celestial phenomena. Recently, new evidence was presented that this researcher claims is in full harmony with my motion theory. According to Charles Seife, "Gravity may not be working as advertized. Spacecraft hurtling through the solar system have been behaving so bizarrely that some scientists wonder whether our theories of gravity are wrong ...
59. The Electro-gravitic Theory Of Cosmology [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... nothing or little to this effect and thus, offer the following as an explanation of galaxies, stars, and solar systems. One further point: this theory does not attempt to explain the origin of matter. Such questions, I believe, for the present, are best left to the theologians. It is taken as a given that gravity and electromagnetism are concurrent counter forces which operate in the universe (of which I believe we exist in but one of many) and generate the celestial bodies by their interactions. I further concur with Halton Arp that the redshifts are not all derived by an expanding universe. Rather, I suggest light traveling through space which is riven with ...
