61. Restless Gold [Science Frontiers Website]
... now watch the bizarre behavior of tiny solid particles, which, it turns out, are not so solid after all. Ultrafine particles of gold about 18 Angstrom units across, containing only about 500 atoms, are not statis aggregations. The shapes of the particles are always changing. The gold atoms move cooperatively to shift kaleidoscope-like into various crystal structures. They have, in fact, been dubbed 'quasi-solids.' A large gold particle may even ingest smaller gold particles. The phenomena have no explanations as yet. (Anonymous; "Japanese Gold in Atomic Motion," Nature, 315:628, 1985.)

62. Sinister Development In Ancient Greece [Science Frontiers Website]
... and even science? It was all because the Ancient Greeks developed an alphabet that included vowels in addition to the consonants. The Greek language became a full phonetic representation of language. The left side of our brain, it seems, is much more capable than the right in matters phonetic. In contrast, other forms of writing in the ancient world, such as hieroglyphics and vowelless alphabets, are better handled by the right side of the brain. (As an aside, it is interesting that, in the modern world, Japanese and Chinese are better processed by the right side of the brain, while the phonetic representations of language, such as English, are handled better sinistrally.) Back in Ancient Greece, the new alphabet shifted language activities to the left side of the brain. According to J.R. Skoyles, this "unlocked" left-brain competences that had previously been analogous right-brain competences. The newly liberated competences involved rational, analytical, and logical faculties. Thus from the addition of a few vowels sprang Ancient Greece and, in time, modern ...
63. A Catastrophic Reading of Religious Systems [SIS C&C Review $]
... world are found to be central, then catastrophism is possible. 11. Working hypotheses: a) From Velikovsky- theory of cosmic instabilities and global catastrophes. b) From Velikovsky- theory of collective amnesia, blockage of memory and trivialisation of myths. c) From Velikovsky and Wolfe- theory of denial, desire to 'not know', to evolve beliefs constructed to permit us to deceive ourselves, avoid remembering and deny or co-opt traumas. I will ask if religion is unconscious denial while figuratively remembering. 12. Example of Japanese culture post-World War II, history denies atomic events but horror movies remember them in disguise. Religion may do both of these jobs regarding planetary catastrophe. 13. Plan- suppose Triple Terror exists, look for effects in religion. These have to be major, central and controlling. Establish grid of possible phenomena (the T-grid) by which to measure each religion. a) Is there an essential concern about the natural world? b) Is earthly catastrophe admitted or denied? c) If admitted, is it put in ...

65. Antarctica's Lake Vostok Revisited [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 107: Sep-Oct 1996 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Antarctica's Lake Vostok Revisited Based upon a Japanese account, we reported the discovery of Lake Vostok in SF#102 almost a year ago. Some details are finally appearing in Western science publications. We can now offer a good cross section of the lake, plus some thoughts about potential ecosystems existing deep under the lake's ice. Although Lake Vostok lies under some 4 kilometers of ice, it remains liquid as geothermal heat seeps up through its floor. Surprisingly, the thick ice cover does not preclude all contact with the surface above. The covering ice sheet moves slowly across the lake and, as it does so, its bottom melts a bit, releasing frozen-in oxygen as well as life forms-- still-living microorganisms and dead creatures that fell onto the Antarctic ice thousands of years ago. Thus, there is a perpetual source of food and new life. Cores drilled from the ice sheet capping Lake Vostok have brought up ...
66. Earthquake Lights And Crustal Deformation [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 16: Summer 1981 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Earthquake Lights And Crustal Deformation Hedervari supports the hypothesis that some earthquake lights, particularly those preceding strong regional quakes, are caused by the release and ignition of gases from the stressed rocks. Several curious features of earthquake lights favor this assertion: Prequake lights are regional in character corresponding to the widespread flexing of the strata. (In the 1933 Japanese quake, earthquake lights were seen along a 1000-km arc); There is no correlation between the earthquake epicenter and the location of earthquake lights. (In the 1977 Romania quake, the epicenter was east of Cluj but the earthquake lights lit up the western horizon. (Hedervari, Peter; "The Possible Correlations between Crustal Deformations Prior to Earthquakes and Earthquake Lights," Seismological Society of America, Bulletin, 71:371, 1981.) Comment. In essense, Hedervari is saying that earthquake lights often do not occur where rock stresses are greatest and that the piezoelectric ...
67. Monitor [SIS C&C Review $]
... early man in Asia. If all modern people are descended from humans who came out of Africa only 100,000 years ago, then these African migrants must have interbred with even earlier man in Asia before their descendants migrated back west. Northern Indians from the east New Scientist 8.3.97, p. 9 The physical appearance of the people of northern India has led to the belief that their ancestry lies with western Caucasoid populations but this is belied by recent genetic studies which indicates that they have much more in common with the Chinese and Japanese to the east. Did apes descend from man? New Scientist 29.3.97, p. 18 Two Australian researchers, using the molecular clock method of investigating when animal lineages split from each other, have come to the conclusion that humans and chimpanzees diverged later than the age of the earliest hominid biped, suggesting that this may have been a common ancestor and that the chimpanzees gave up bipedality and returned to the trees. This idea was put forward some years ago by John Gribbin and Jeremy Cherfas in their book The Monkey Puzzle. ...
68. BIOLOGICAL PRECURSORS OF THE 1995 KOBE EARTHQUAKE [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 99: May-Jun 1995 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Biological precursors of the 1995 kobe earthquake The Japanese are meticulous observers of animals. Many keep birds, insects, fish, etc. as pets. When scientists at the Osaka City University asked for reports of unusual animal behavior around the time of the great January 17 quake, over 1,200 people in the Kobe-Osaka area came forth with anecdotes. Some typical pre-quake observations were: Doves flying into walls. Caged birds (Chinese hawk-cuckoos) flying against the sides of their cages. Fish rising to the surface in great numbers. At the port of Shioya, "millions" of gizzard shad turned the surface of the water into silver. Captive stag beetles and turtles emerging from hibernation. And strangest of all, silkworms and fish in ponds orienting themselves in the same directions. (Minami, Shigehiko; "Creatures Went a Bit Batty, Maybe Knew Quake Was Coming," Asahi Evening News, February 25, ...
69. Cold Fusion Not So Hot! [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 114: Nov-Dec 1997 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Cold Fusion Not So Hot! The Japanese government's funding for that country's 5-year, $25-million cold fusion program will cease in March 1998. The work had been pursued at the New Hydrogen Energy laboratory, near Sapporo. IMRA, a foundation sponsored by Toyota, has also contributed financial support. Reason for the loss of government support: The program "failed to find heat generated by cold fusion." (Anonymous; "Japan Ends Funding for 'Cold' Fusion Project," Nature, 389:10, 1997.) Comment. No longer will funds-starved American cold fusion enthusiasts be able to say, "Look at what Japan is doing." We need more money to compete."

70. Voyages Of The Imagination [Science Frontiers Website]
... Jul-Aug 1993 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Voyages Of The Imagination We would be remiss if we did not record here an article by F.J. Frost, a professor at the University of California at Santa Barbara. Frost proceeds to shoot down all claims, save one, of Precolumbian contacts with the New World. He accepts only the Viking signs found at L'Anse aux Meadows in northern Newfoundland, dating back to about 1000 AD. Everything else: Roman amphorae in Brazil, Japanese pottery in Ecuador, Egyptian architecture in Mesoamerica, Celtic inscriptions in New England, etc.; is the product of hoaxes, misinterpretations, and sloppy archeology. Frost has no patience with the (mainly) amateur archeologists; he is not impressed by all the mountains of evidence they have collected. (Frost, Frank J.; "Voyages of the Imagination," Archaeology, 46:46, March/April 1993.) Comment. Frost's stonewalling reminds one of other negative pronouncements, such as: "Stones cannot ...
