71. B-24 SIGHTS "CIRCLES OF LIGHT" [Science Frontiers Website]
... pilots over wartime Germany were duplicated in the Pacific. In addition, strange "circles of light" followed American aircraft. The following paragraphs were taken from the "Weekly Intelligence Summary," Headquarters, Eastern Air Command, South East Asia. June 1, 1945. "A B-24 of the 11th Bomb Group on a snooper mission over Truk during the early morning hours of 3 May 1945, encountered what may prove to be as baffling a phenomena (sic) as the balls of light seen by the B-29s while over the Japanese mainland. (Excerpted From Hq. AAF, POA, Air Intell. Memo No. 4, 8 May 1945.) "The B-24 first observed two red circles of light approaching the plane from below while still over the Truk atoll. One light was on the right and the other was seen on the left of the B-24. The light on the left side turned back after one and one half hours. The one on the right remained with the bomber until the B-24 was only 10 miles from Guam. From ...
72. The Zuni Enigma [Science Frontiers Website]
... a stylized chrysanthemum (bottom) The Zunis of New Mexico are different from other Native Americans in many ways. In an impressive, very detailed paper in the NEARA Journal, N.Y. Davis summarizes her investigation of these anomalies as follows: "...evidence suggesting Asian admixture is found in Zuni biology, lexicon, religion, social organization, and oral traditions of migration. Possible cultural and language links of Zuni to California, the social disruption at the end of the Heian period of the 12th century in Japan, the size of Japanese ships at the time of proposed migration, the cluster of significant changes in the late 13th century in Zuni, all lend further credibility to a relatively late prehistoric contact." We cannot delve into all classes of evidence adduced by Davis. Let us focus on the Zuni biological anomalies: Skeletal remains. These show a significant change in Zuni physical characteristics from 1250-1400 AD, suggesting the arrival of a new element in the Zuni population. Dentition. Three tooth features of the Zunis lie midway between those of Asians and other Native ...
73. The Cosmic Mountain [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... , it is simply the polar "sun "-wheel sustained by the cosmic mountain. Japan, China, Iran, Siberia With the axis-mountain of Indian thought we can bracket closely related examples from neighbouring lands: A title of the Indian Meru was SuMeru, the "excellent" Meru, a name which Buddhism carried into China as Siumi, and to Japan as Shumi. Even the relatively late Chinese commentary the Li-Khi locates Mount Siumi in the "middle" of the Cosmos, i.e., at the pole. (97) The Japanese Mount Shumi was, according to Hepburn, "a Buddhist fabulous mountain of wonderful height, forming the axis of every Universe, and the centre around which all the heavenly bodies revolve." (98) The most common name of the polar mountain in China is Kwen-lun. Called the world's highest mountain, Kwen-lun stood at "the centre of the earth." (99) On its summit lay a shining circular plain, recalled as a celestial homeland whose "sparkling fountains and purling streams contain the far-famed ambrosia." ...
74. Viruses as Ancient Artifacts [Science Frontiers Website]
... where Jomon-style pottery 4,000-5,000 years old has been found on the coast. However, the HTLV-1 virus also could have been introduced to South America by more recent visitors. Is there any way to fix the timing of HTLV-1's introduction to South America? Actually, there is. The DNA in viruses is not as durable as pottery shards, but it does hang around for a while, as seen is recent efforts to ex-tract DNA from from frozen mammoths for possible "revival" of the species. A team of Japanese and Chilean scientists has been searching for DNA surviving in 104 mummies deposited in South America's arid Atacama Desert 1,200-1,500 years ago. Two of the mummies still retained DNA; and one of them included shards of DNA from HTLV-1. This certainly doesn't prove trans-Pacific diffusion, but it helps.

75. Anomalous High Altitude Luminosity (AHAL) [Science Frontiers Website]
... Altitude Luminosity (AHAL) When meteors plunge into the earth's upper atmosphere, friction with the air causes them to incandesce and burn up. The smaller ones are completely consumed. A few bigger ones reach earth and are renamed "meteorites." So far, all of this is well-understood. But when meteors begin to burn up much above 100 kilometers, a problem arises. The air there is normally much too thin to cause incandescence and burn-up. Observational anomalies are abundant. Two Leonid fireballs were seen glowing at 160 kilometers by Japanese scientists. In 1998, a Dutch team in China detected bright Leonids at 200 kilometers! In addition, some Russian reentering space-craft began glowing well above 100 kilometers. ANAL is a solid phenomenon. Of course, the density of the upper atmosphere does increase somewhat when solar activity is high. Atmospheric gravity waves can also cause the atmosphere to bulge out. But these effects are inadequate to explain all observations. R. Spalding, at Sandia National Laboratories, ventures that ions in the upper atmosphere are electrostatically attracted to meteors and ...
76. Remarkable Animal Talents And Capabilities [Science Frontiers Website]
... #116, SF#117) The pineal gland (our "third eye") may have registered photons at some stage in our evolution, but it is now useless or adapted to other purposes. The arthropods, however, still find photoreceptors useful. Crayfish have them on their abdomens, where they initiate an escape response when illuminated. Additionally, the blind shrimp that collect around the glowing deep-sea vents have photoreceptors perched on their backs, presumably to guide them to their prey located around the luminous vents. Recently, the Japanese yellow swallowtail butterflies were discovered to sport photoreceptors on their genitalia. These I are used during mating to confirm the position of the female's ovipositor.(Arikawa, Kentaro; "Hindsight of Butterflies," BioScience, 51:219, 2001.) Barn-Owl auditory neurons multiple signals. Barn Owls can locate rustling mice in the dark with high precision. They discern their prey by sound rather than light. To achieve the high accuracy needed to home in on small rodents in the black of night, their ears are slightly offset ...

78. Strange High-Level Haze In The Arctic [Science Frontiers Website]
... at about 10,000 feet. The sky has a whitish, diffuse look; from an airplane the horizon seems to disappear entirely. Is the haze due to pollutants in this remote region? Recent studies indicate two components in the haze: (1) Dust, and (2) Sulfuric acid droplets. Both of these must be imported because there are no sources of such materials in the arctic. Violent wind storms in the Gobi Desert may carry some dust into the arctic. Strong winds might also transport sulphuric acid from Japanese industries to Alaska. These are speculations, though, and no one is sure where this haze comes from or how far it extends beyond Alaska into the stable, stagnant air over the Arctic Ocean.

79. A Brighter Moon [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... A Brighter Moon Many traditions persist that at some time in the past the Moon was much brighter than it is now, and larger in appearance than the Sun. In many rabbinical sources it is stated that the Sun and the Moon were equally bright at first. (1) The same statement was made to de Sahagun by the aborigines of the New World: ? the Sun and the moon had equal light in the past.? (2) At the other end of the world the Japanese asserted the same: the Nihongi Chronicle says that in the past ? the radiance of the moon was next to that of the sun in splendor.? (3) Traditions of many peoples maintain that the Moon lost a large part of its light and became much dimmer than it had been in earlier ages. (4) In order that the Sun and the Moon should give off comparable light, the Moon must have had an atmosphere with a high albedo (refracting power) (5) or it must have been much closer to the earth ...
