101. "Proofs" of the Stability of the Solar System [SIS C&C Review $]
... Yusuke Hagihara The reference which is most widely considered by astronomers to contain a proof of the invariability of the planetary mean distances over periods of 10 11 years, is Yusuke Hagihara's "The Stability of the Solar System," Chapter 4, volume III, The Solar System, ed. by G. P. Kuiper, University of Chicago Press, 1961. Hagihara's entire five-volume treatise on celestial mechanics has not yet appeared; volumes I and II have recently been published by MIT Press; volumes III and IV are available from a Japanese publisher. From the one volume that I have seen, and the announced outline, it is evident that this will be the most exhaustively thorough and definitive treatment of celestial mechanics for decades to come. Evidently (in a 1944 Japanese journal which I have been unable to obtain as yet) Hagihara presented a very elegant and possibly definitive proof of the theorem of Poisson discussed above. However this still leaves the theorem of Poisson itself subject to the various criticisms explained above, which convinced e.g. Brown and Shook that the importance ...

... fracture. Triboluminescence occurs when certain crystals are ground up; crystals under stress become charged by piezoelectricity. This phenomenon is now being used to detect underground water by picking up a minute electrical signal produced when ground above water is hit. Another strange phenomenon is that of booming sands from certain deserts and dunes around the world. Electrical charges can build up in dry sand and may be part of the explanation for why these sands emit sounds from time to time. The Moses coil defies gravity New Scientist 26.7.97, pp. 42-43 Two Japanese researchers succeeded in recreating the Red Sea phenomenon by surrounding a tube of water with a coil of superconducting wire. When a current flowed in the wire, creating a magnetic field in the tube, the water parted and moved to the ends of the tube leaving the centre dry. Since then, more work with the coil has shown that it can defy gravity and a variety of objects from tulips to frogs have been levitated with no ill-effects. The field inside the coil was half a million times as strong as that of ...

... temple in the 10th century BC and then buried in an Egyptian temple, the ruins of which he thinks he has identified in the Judean hills. Unfortunately the area is infamous as a terrorist training camp. Augustus in Troy National Geographic April 98, geographica A marble head identified as that of Augustus, who became the first Roman emperor, in 27BC, has been found at the site traditionally thought of as that of ancient Troy. There appears to have been a renewal of culture in the area that lasted about 500 years. Japanese mathematics enters a dark age Scientific American May 98, p. 65 Although some mathematics had developed in Japan earlier, the first real records are when Buddhism, and with it Chinese mathematics, came to Japan in the mid 6th century AD. However, it did not progress further because the country entered a 'Dark Age', roughly contemporaneous with that of western Europe. Surviving only in Buddhist temples, it was not until the beginning of the 17th century that definite records show Japanese mathematics had begun to progress again. This ...

[This article was first submitted in 1976 and is printed here in its original form. In July 1977, in a celebrated incident, a Japanese trawler, fishing off the coast of New Zealand, recovered the decaying body of a huge and mysterious sea creature. This recently dead monster was thought to resemble a marine plesiosaur, but was unfortunately lost to science when the Japanese threw it back into the sea.- Ed.\ cdrom\pubs\journals\workshop\vol0304\06myth.htm ...
105. Reviews [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... in A New Science of Life. In 1983, New Scientist ran a competition to find a suitable test, and this was won by Richard Gentle, a colleague of mine at Trent Polytechnic Nottingham. His idea was to compare the ease with which non-Turkish speakers could learn a genuine Turkish nursery rhyme as opposed to an equivalent false one: if formative causation is correct, the genuine rhyme should be learned much quicker, because millions of Turks have already learned it in the past. This test was put into operation, but with Japanese rather than Turkish rhymes. A genuine poem was used, together with two specially composed ones, all with the same rhyme and metre. It was found that 62% of those tested found the genuine nursery rhyme easiest to learn, a result well above chance. However, Sheldrake acknowledged that this poem might have become established as a nursery rhyme in the first place because of some particularly catchy quality it possessed, so other tests of formative causation were considered. A series of test were planned based on the recognition of hidden ...

... , for cells are almost certain to possess enzymes capable of altering genetic structure in the absence of cell division- the key to finding an orthodox explanation of the phenomenon. Once heralded as a blasphemy, Lamarckian adaptation may eventually be seen as an inevitable consequence of molecular genetics." From the shades can you hear a Velikovskian chuckle- or two?' Great balls of fire New Scientist 23.3.91, p. 24 and The Economist 17.8.91, pp.74-75 Scientists sceptical about the existence of ball lightning must now sit up and take note of Japanese researchers who have not only created ball lightning in the laboratory but observed it passing through non-conducting solids without causing any damage, and hovering near electrical conductors, just as countless tales, previously regarded as simply folklore, have described. The Japanese scientists were testing a theory that ball lightning may be produced by a plasma discharge caused by interference between strong microwave radiations. The hazards of solar flares New Scientist 22.6.91, p. 15 and National Geographic October 1991 Earth Almanac. It has been suggested that navigators should be issued solar storm ...
107. As the Cross of the Cardinal Points [Migration of Symbols (Book)] [Books]
... directed to the North and their feet to the South, while the males had their heads to the South and their feet to the North. Apparently one of the cardinal points was male and the other female. Connected with this concept may have been the custom referred to in Khafra's tale in one of the old Egyptian collections. The wife of Uba-aner is unfaithful: And they brought forth the wife of Uba-aner to the side of the harem, and burnt her with fire, and cast her ashes in the river. 5 The Japanese regard the East and South as male and the West and North as fernale. 6 In Japanese "medical folklore", A hiccough is driven away by applying under the knee a sheet of ha-hi, folded to the left in the case of a man and to the right in the case of a woman. 7 In the next chapter it will be shown that the Egyptians were interested in the North not only because the Nile flows in that direction and because it seems to flood in response to the "call" of ...
108. SERVANT OF THE SUN GOD [Aeon Journal $]
... the sword or spear of the warrior-hero is really indistinguishable from other arms carried by this universal figure: the club, mace, hammer, axe, arrow or harpoon-- all of which reveal similar qualities as the essence of the god and fulfil essentially identical roles in the myths. Thus, a wide range of images can be brought into the analysis as tests of the theory. Moreover, the variations on the theme cannot cloud the distinctive parallelisms, and these are the key to the full range of symbols. In the Japanese Kojiki the Heavenly Jewelled Spear, joining heaven and earth, appears as the churning stick by whose action the island-dwelling Onogoro was brought forth. (19) One might imagine this to be a different myth from that of the spear as pathway, but the difference will disappear when one sees that mythically the cosmic mountain was simultaneously a churning or boring stick (stirring the "waters" of the outflow), the path of the warrior-hero's ascent, and the hero's weapon. Thus, the axial character of the spear in the ...

... acquire an identity of its own, but to participate dramatically in the creation. "I am Ra who wept for himself in his single eye," states a Coffin Text. (12) Of the Hindu god Shiva it was said "one blazing eye shone forth" on his brow. (13) Comparable are the single eye of the Norse Odin, the all-seeing celestial eye of the Iranian Ahura Mazda, the one eye of the Mexican Tlaloc, and the god with "one-eye of heaven," appearing in a Japanese mythical fragment. (14) The more ground one covers with respect to the one-eyed god, the more the common epithets relating to the "eye" of the creator-king begin to stand out, suggesting something more than mere poetry. The Sumerian Enlil is the "bright-eyed." Ninurta looks at his mother Ninmah with the "eye of life." (15) The "clear-seeing eye" of the Sumerian Enki and the "ageless eye of all-seeing Zeus" seem to belong to the same category. In the Iranian ...

... Neptune and Uranus) and there was a "Nu" factor, in this closest of all Mars flybys. It was in year 2484 B.C. Example 5: Strings of Sausages Figure 5 is a diagram of the alignment of the mountain arcs of Eastern Asia. Many of them are partially submerged mountain chains. They align, as J. Tuzo Wilson pointed out, like sausages on a string, like several strings of sausages hung or strung out across the Eastern Pacific. One string is the Ryukyu Arc. Another is the Japanese Arc, followed by the Kurile Arc, the Kamchatka Arc, the Aleutian Arc, etc. These arcs in series are merely deformed and reformed Earth crust, like sausages of reformed meat. It took one or more close Mars flybys, penetrating the Earth's elastic-plastic threshold at 19,000 miles, to string out these arcs. It is easy to understand. The Arc-Like Patterns of Mountain Ranges Earlier, we noted that mountain systems lie in patterns along great circles that are flyby pathways. But the development of ballooning bulges requires ...
