161. New Physics Supports Planetary Catastrophism [Journals] [SIS Review]
... would be many effects expected that we simply don't observe [9 ]. For instance, electrical shielding effects would noticeably modify the lunar orbit about the Earth. Powerful eddy currents would be induced in planetary surfaces, tending to slow down (or speed up) their rotation until phase-locked with the Sun. Even more critical is the speed of light delay in electromagnetic fields which would have the Earth, for example, always being tugged toward a point in space where the Sun was eight minutes ago. This would cause obvious precession of the Earth's aphelion. We know now that space is filled with a rarefied plasma, which is like a gas in which many of the atoms have ...
... If we study the inscriptions- and this, thanks chiefly to Mariette's magnificent book on Denderah, we can do we find that they give out a very certain sound. Here is one of them: - - "She [i .e . her Majesty Isis] shines into her temple on New Years Day, and she mingles her light with that of her father Ra on the horizon." Here we have nothing more nor less than a distinct and perfectly accurate statement relating to the cosmical rising of a star. i.e ., as I have before explained, of the sun and the star both rising at the same instant of time. Further, in ...
163. The Great Comet Venus [Journals] [Aeon]
... planet Venus once possessed a comet-like tail, and its orbit brought the planet into confrontation with the Earth. The planet Mars, the war-god of the ancient world, participated directly in Earth-changing catastrophes and appeared to battle other celestial bodies in the sky. During an epoch remembered as the Golden Age, the planet Saturn once shone as the dominant light in the sky- when the Earth was possibly a satellite of Saturn. These principles are not just novel, but central to an entirely new way of looking at man, the Earth, and its celestial habitat. Now, more than forty years after publication of Worlds in Collision, as astronomers wrestle with new images of Venus, ...

The natives soon grow restless and more than a little jealous at the dramatic transformation in the bachelor's appearance: "When she lay down with him there was a light emanating from her, illuminating every-thing...By now the other people and some girls were very envious of the young man's family because they looked so fair and beautiful.

166. The Crescent II [Books]
... sails in the ship Magur. The Chinese Huang-ti- the planet Saturn- was the first to sail in a ship. In his journey across the ocean, Hercules rode in a "golden goblet"- the ship of Helios (Saturn)to which one naturally compares the "new-moon" boat of Dionysus. A ship of "self-made light" transports the Avestan great god Yima (Saturn). The Phoenician great father Chrysor "was the first man who fared in ships," (6 ) but it was also said that the twin god Ousoos "was the first who launched a boat."

167. Nova of Super Uranus and Ejection of the Moon [Books] [de Grazia books]
... electric arc), whence came Brahma, who acquired Purusha's powers as Lord of the Universe (and whom we shall identify below as Super Saturn) (Cardona, 1978a, p43). The cracking of the Cosmic Egg may represent the sight of a fissioning Super Uranus in human memory. The Hebrew Book of Genesis begins with a primordial light that did not have the company of the celestial bodies until "the fourth day". This may have been "lightness" or "a light". The deity may have been Super Uranus, who first gave "lightness" and then "a light" of himself. Some (e .g . Cardona, ibid. ...
168. The Bedrock of Myth [Articles]
... Saturn the wind in the mind of some inept interpreter, just as in the minds of inept Sumerian interpreters of myth, crescent to Saturn and crescent to Sun meant a sunlike Saturn illuminating the night. Three parallel myths of the Shatapatha Prahmana unite into the narrative that Prajapati uttered three words, Earth, Air, and Sky, which were lights, which were Agni, Vayu, and Surya. In the interchangeable metaphors of myth, words' are a perception of light. Numerous Sanskrit words mean both to speak and to shine. Th[e ] interchangeability and ambivalence of mythical metaphors contributes to the corruption and misleading scattering of motifs. Agni, the outermost crescent, is ...
169. The Stones of Time; Calendars, Sundials, and the Stone Chambers of Ancient Ireland by Martin Brennan (Book Review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... | Issue Contents The Stones of Time; Calendars, Sundials, and the Stone Chambers of Ancient Ireland by Martin Brennan Rochester, Vermont, 1994. Reviewed by Phillip Clapham The claim of this book is that megalithic mounds, otherwise known as passage graves or chambered tombs, are accurate sun chronometers whose structure required precise measurement to allow beams of light to illuminate the interiors at particular moments of the year – and indeed, throughout the year. One of the most important points raised by Brennan is that it was not simply the winter or summer solstice, or an equinox, that was being recorded or celebrated; a host of satellite mounds reveal a succession of dates that seem to ...
170. Thoth Vol VI, No 2: March 15, 2002 [Journals] [Thoth]
... . The balloon's instruments did not record it. As dawn breaks, the researchers realize the favoured model of sprite formation doesn't measure up. The results from the ground stations suggest that once a positive lightning strike occurs, the intensity of the electric field in the mesosphere builds up over two or three milliseconds until breakdown occurs, and the sprite lights up. This delay may be related to the flow of currents created by the lightning which bring the high-altitude electric field to the level required for breakdown, says Victor Pasko, an atmospheric physicist at Pennsylvania State University in University Park. Then, once the sprite has faded, charges in the clouds begin to disperse or flow away, ...
