51. Gerontology, Environment, and Geological Catastrophism [Kronos $]
... geomagnetic field intensity is nearly the same at present (8 x 10 25 gauss cm 3) as that of about 2000 B.C. with a minimum between 4000 and 6000 years ago. These variations in the dipole moment of the geomagnetic field, determined from archeomagnetic intensity studies, are reported as 500 year averages.(16) An increase in field intensity roughly corresponded to the time of the Exodus, and the maximum value (14 x 10 25 gauss cm 3) occurred between 3000 and 2000 years ago.(17) Japanese and Russian data also imply a cyclic change of the field intensity with a period of the order of 10,000 years. This is in phase with the abrupt climatic change that occurred at the end of the last Ice Age.(18) This concurs with Heraclitus' statement that the world is destroyed in conflagration after every period of 10,800 years, as mentioned by Velikovsky.(19) If the planetary charge changed drastically when worlds collided, the electrical characteristics of the Earth would have been affected.

52. On the Crab Supernova of 1054 [Kronos $]
... of Bagdad, while residing in Constantinople. Writing in Arabic, he says: "One of the well-known epidemics of our own time is that which occurred when the spectacular star appeared in Gemini in the year 446 H. (12 April 1054- 1 April 1055 A.D.)." For clarification, due to differing constellation definition and precession of the equinoxes, what appears in Taurus today appeared closer to Gemini in 1054. Thus, we have unambiguous, independent sightings of an extraordinary celestial event from three cultures- Chinese, Japanese and Arabic. It is clear from the contexts that the records of these sightings are indigenous to the exclusion of a diffusionary explanation. With regard to certain pictographs and petroglyphs in the American Southwest, purported to record the Crab Supernova, this is another matter. It is possible that Sagan may have overstated the validity of these drawings which appear at several sites and show the juxtaposition of a crescent object above a star-like object. The orientation of the crescent with respect to the "star" is not uniform from site to site ...
53. Supernova Problems [Science Frontiers Website]
... in the proper spot. But it is still there, apparently unchanged, as is a still fainter companion. The problem is that if 1987A really originated with an even fainter star, such a star would not have enough mass to go supernova. Part of 1987A's spectrum, its luminosity evolution, and precursory neutrino burst all indicate a Type-II supernova. Unfortunately, its ultraviolet spectrum is that of a Type-I supernova. Also anomalous are its high rate of evolution and low luminosity (only magnitude 4.5 instead of the predicted 2+. Japanese apparatus located in a deep mine near Kamioka detected a burst of neutrinos about 22 hours before 1987A flared into the visible spectrum. This fits Type-II supernova theory, but the Mont Blanc equipment detected a neutrino burst just 4.6 hours before the flare-up. Which detector is correct; and why didn't both detectors register both bursts, if such there were? At the moment, some scientists think that the Mont Blanc event was spurious in view of previous unexplained bursts recorded there. (Waldrop, M. Mitchell; "The Supernova 1987A ...
54. The Rebirth of Nature [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... background effect by morphic resonance. For subsequent tests it would be better 'to use harder crosswords, with cryptic clues that are both more original and involve more of a puzzle-solving effort.' This comes from a letter giving the results of the tests to the participants. In it, Sheldrake goes on to say that two other tests, at the Psychology Departments at Oxford and Gottingen Universities, have recently given more encouraging results: the Oxford test involved discriminating real from false English words, and the Gottingen test discriminating between real and altered Japanese characters (in the Hiragana script). None of this, of course, could appear in The Rebirth of Nature because the book was already in the process of publication when the tests were carried out. In fact, it contains very little about testing for morphic resonance, and nothing that wasn't included in Sheldrake's earlier books. Although much of The Rebirth of Nature overlaps with The Presence of the Past, this time it is given a 'greener' slant, with frequent references to the positive feelings most of us have towards ...
55. How Many Migrations Were There? [Science Frontiers Website]
... there? One way of determining the directions and strengths of human migrations is through language analysis. People carry words along with them and, even after centuries of modification, traces of their original languages survive. In 1492, an estimated 30- 40 million Native Americans spoke more than 1,000 different languages. Can anyone discern patterns in such a hodgepodge? Careful study reveals many similarities. For example, all New World languages can be classified into three groups: The Eskimo-Aleut or Eurasiatic group, which is related to Indo-European, Japanese, Ainu, Korean, and some other languages. The Na-Dene family, related to a different set of Old World languages, such as Sino-Tibetan, Basque, (North) Caucasian, and others. The Amerind family. "The origins of the Amerind family are the most baffling, but there are a number of apparent cognates with language families of Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Oceania. For example, the root 'tik,' meaning 'finger, one, to point,' is found in Africa, ...
56. Star Sludge [Science Frontiers Website]
... as 2% of the incident sunlight. They are indeed charcoal black. Comet nuclei, according to W. Hartmann and his colleagues, are colored by a brownishblack primordial organic sludge, and have the appearance of "a very dark Hershey bar." The use of the adjective "organic" may be premature, but in light of the next item, maybe not. (2) Carbonaceous chondrites. This well-known class of meteorites sometimes appears tarry and is characterized by carbon contents of up to 2% and more. The Japanese have just reported the analysis of Yamoto 791198, a carbonaceous chondrite picked up in the Antarctic. This meteorite is loaded with amino acids, 20 kinds of them. These extraterrestrial amino acids are not considered biogenic because they are half left-handed and half right-handed; whereas all amino acids synthesized by terrestrial animals, plants, etc. are left-handed. [This is obviously presumptious because we have no notion how extraterrestrial life works, assuming it exists at all.( 3) The rings of Uranus. Voyager photos reveal that these rings ...
57. Monitor [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... ? How does one explain the "explosive radiation" of new life forms following each geological hiatus? Davies admits the applications are widespread: "In reality, all physical systems are nonlinear, but they may behave in an approximately linear way when close to equilibrium." Just how many systems, currently only understood as linear processes, are in fact non-linear but presently close to equilibrium? And how many of them would be tipped over into wild and unpredictable behaviour by catastrophe conditions? Neutrino Puzzle source: New Scientist 21.4.88, p.30 Japanese scientists have provided confirmation that only a third of the neutrinos from the Sun that "should" reach the Earth actually do arrive. This implies that "physicists do not properly understand some of the processes in nuclear physics". Note, they won't admit they could be completely wrong. Mammal Rethink source: New Scientist 21.4.88, p.31 The paucity of early mammal fossils in South America had hitherto led palaeontologists to decide that mammals must have evolved in North America and migrated south. Now all is changed due to finds at one ...
58. Velikovsky: The Open Minded Approach [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Newsletter 1 (April 1975) Home¦ Issue Contents Velikovsky: The Open Minded Approach Martin Sieff 'Worlds in Collision' by Immanuel Velikovsky was published in Britain and the United States in 1950. The thesis of the book was that the Earth had been ravaged by global catastrophes caused by planetary interactions within historical times; that these disasters provided the miracles and apocalyptic imagery of the Bible and the inspiration for the cosmologies of the ancient world. Velikovsky culled his reconstruction from 'the Japanese, Chinese, and Hindu civilisations, the Iranian, Sumerian, Assyrian, Hitto-Chaldean, Israelite, and Egyptian records; the Etruscan, Attic, and Roman theogonies and philosophies; Scandinavian and Icelandic epics, Mayan, Toltec, and Olmec art and legends.' (1) This picture he drew from them was that around 1500 BC the Earth came into disastrous conflict with the planet Venus- then on an elliptical orbit and with a tremendous cometary tail after originating by fission from Jupiter at a considerably earlier date. The phenomena caused by this catastrophe caused the Biblical miracles ...
59. Book Reviews [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... this is but one of the many reputed similarities between their stories.) Much of this book is eminently readable and it can occasionally even bear comparison with Gibbon's DECLINE AND FALL (which inspired some of the entries), though admittedly only occasionally. Prospective readers are also warned that the apparently comprehensive name index included in the present edition proves not to be entirely reliable and could do with some revision. Michael Reade CATASTROPHES IN THE EARTH'S HISTORY by I. A. Rezanov MIR Publishers, Moscow, 1980. Translations into English, Japanese, German, Bulgarian and French. This paperback, despite its title and a break with conformity in the second chapter, proves a disappointment to anyone hoping for a Velikovskian approach to catastrophes. The author, a Russian geologist, rarely strays far from the orthodoxies of his western peers, although one is left with the impression that most geological work originated in the USSR. Nearly half the book is taken up with a consideration of the causes of volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, cyclones and hurricanes and includes interesting and detailed ...
