31. Was the Spiral a Symbol or an Art-Motif? [Migration of Symbols (Book)] [Books]
... and recent times. He regarded its association with the "savage" as perfectly "natural", and he laboured the view, in this regard, that "the mind and materials of men are the same everywhere", and that, therefore, wherever one finds the savage one may expect to find the spiral. Its absence in Hawaii was unknown to Mr. Lang. We are left to conjecture how he would have explained away this interesting phase of the problem. FIG. 21. Greek fret FIG. 22. Japanese Bronze Buddha with Eighy Swastikas on Pedestal. (after Mr. Thos.Wilson) To Mr. Lang "ornamentation" was as "natural" as chicken-pox or measles. It was as "natural" to find savages developing "ornamentation" as it was to find children developing rashes on their skins. He deals with the matter as a whole in the chapter entitled "The Art of Savages" of his Custom and Myth, 3 where he writes: The Greek fret pattern especially seems to be one of the earliest that men ...

There may be a connection -assuming such ancient dates are reliable. Life revives on Mars New Scientist 4.11.00, p. 27, 13.1.01, p.23, 19.5.01, pp. 38-40 More work on that Martian meteorite has revealed that its centre never got too hot to fry any microbes in it and even if it had been hot a Japanese team reckons that the common ancestor of all living things was able to survive in almost boiling water. Research on the controversial Martian meteorite has revealed tiny magnetic crystals which seem too pure to have been made by geological processes. They have the properties of magnetite crystals made by certain bacteria on Earth, which use them to navigate around dark, muddy pools.

33. A Catastrophist Reading of Religious Systems [SIS C&C Review $]
... two contesting motives are at work in religion at the same time, in tandem, and that is specifically what I will look for. Should any reader doubt that such a process can occur subconsciously on a racial scale, modern Japan provides a blunt refutation. As everyone knows, Japan had been at war in Asia since 1933 and its surprise attack on Pearl Harbor brought it swiftly into World War Two in 1941, which led to the atomic bombing of 1945 and Japan's surrender. We have only begun to learn now how the Japanese mentality responded to these events. It turns out that the Second World War is virtually ignored in Japanese education, as is Pearl Harbor, Manchuria and the bloody prisoner-of-war camps. They were eliminated from the history textbooks and therefore, for the Japanese, it is as if they never happened. All they remember is Hiroshima and Nagasaki unconnected to the battle of the Pacific, and yet at the same time in the decades after 1945, the Japanese turned out dozens of horror and monster movies and comic books in which the destructiveness ...

... adversaries' approach is nothing new. The 21st October 1995 was quite an event in the New Scientist when the letters section had one by Alasdair Beal concerning the errors in Einstein's theory and another by someone decrying the snide and disrespectful attitude of Nick Saunders in reviewing David Rohl's book The Test of Time- but was it a Freudian error which caused the latter's name to be spelt incorrectly? ASTRONOMY Mystery X-rays Scientific American March 1996, p. 17, Baltimore Evening Sun 16.9.94, New Scientist 2.3.96, p. 16 A group of Japanese astronomers has discovered a form of X-ray emission which seems to come from high speed electrons racing through a magnetic field at the edge of the shock wave of a nearby supernova, confirming theories that cosmic rays originate in supernova explosions. Meanwhile a large burst of X-rays from a bright star which normally gives out an unvarying stream of X-rays remains unexplained, as also a sudden X-ray beacon from the centre of our Galaxy. The Washington Post 5.4.96 Mystery X-rays were also detected, in the form of a crescent on the sunward side of ...

Ancient religious art invariably expressed something by means of its symbols. It would be rash therefore to assume that the spiral was an exception to this rule. All symbols did not originate in the same way. Some were conventionalized natural subjects, or conventionalized living creatures, or simply characteristic ...

A Japanese team claim to have done it by simply stirring a catalyst into water, but sceptics remember the cold fusion affair. Physics is not the answer to everything New Scientist 21.11.98, pp. 34-37 Chemists are trying to formulate a philosophy of chemistry to match the quantum mechanics and natural selection philosophies of physicists and biologists. They resent the physics 'imperialism' which claims that everything in chemistry and biology can be explained by some fundamental laws of physics. Important facets of chemistry cannot be explained by quantum mechanics and chemists claim that they live in the 'real' world, unlike physicists.

... true left-handers the right hemisphere is dominant), not so much because it specializes in the logical and analytic processes, and verbal and mathematical functions, as because it controls the right hand. The right hemisphere specializes in spatial orientation, arts and crafts, recognitions of whole images, and music and acoustics, including vowels but not consonants. Generally the left brain is more localized, the right more diffuse and prehuman [22. Yet something of all of these occurs in both hemispheres. Some of it is culturally induced; fluent Japanese speakers carry their vowels on the left, westerners on the right [23. The right hemisphere (until the Japanese case came along) was described by some students as feminine, the seat of intuition and artistic taste, whereas the left was labeled rational and correct. Memory is notably diffused throughout the brain, although a single hemisphere or less could store more memories than one could ever recall. A hemisphere is insensitive to its sources. It does not footnote a datum as coming from outside or from across the corpus callosum ...
39. Binomial Coefficients, Permutations and Combinations in Elam and Babylon [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... binomial coefficients, (2) generally thought to be expressed by Blaise Pascal and known by Arabs and the Chinese at least as late as A.D. 1303; (3) or of the study of permutations and combinations. While no hard data of binomial and combination study can be shown, it is generally conceded by many that knowledge of the binomial coefficients lies, of course, fully within the reach of Babylonian algebra. (4) The first evidence of the study of permutations comes in the mystic trigrams of the Chinese and Japanese, which appear in one of the oldest Chinese classics, the I-King. This consists of the various permutations of straight and broken lines taken three at a time. This arrangement of lines is seen on amulets and charms in China and India, and it is also used as an ornament on objects where it can have no mystical significance whatever. Interest in the subject of permutations was relatively slight among the Greeks, but in late Roman times Boethius (c. 510) gave a rule for the number of combinations of n ...
40. Earthquake Lights (U.S. Geological Survey News Release) [Catastrophism Geology $]
... difficulties in trying to explain these phenomena because very few scientists have worked on the question of earthquake lights. "The reason," he said," is simply that most reports of these lights are the personal observations of untrained observers. Nevertheless, observations have been made for many years, and the existence of earthquake lights is well established." In a recent (May-June 1977) issue of the USGS Earthquake Information Bulletin, Derr noted that the first known investigations of earthquake lights were c9rried out in the early 1930's by two Japanese seismologists, Torahiko Terada and Kinkiti Musya; the latter collected some 1,500 reports of lights from the Idu Peninsula earthquake which occurred at 4:30 a.m., November 26, 1930. In most of the accounts of the lights from the Idu Peninsula quake, the sky was lit up as if by sheet lightning, with nearly all observers agreeing that the duration of a single flash was much longer than that of lightning. Others described the lights as resembling auroral streamers, beams and columns, fireballs, or as ...
