... origin in Polar-star worship, the mirror in Sun-worship; while the flint would have remained irreligious. But I may not pass unmentioned here a very divergent theory which' so far as I know, belongs, as a modern argument, to .Prof. Sven Nilsson, who, in his Stone Age' says that men learnt how to light a fire from observation of the self-ignition of the branches of trees by friction one against the other under stress of the wind. The supposition appears the more ingenious if we refer it-Prof. Nilsson does not-to a time when man was still a climbing animal, and when this particular production'of fire might perhaps have come under his immediate notice in ...

22. Darkness and the Deep [Journals] [Aeon]
... a speculative scenario concerning the history of the Solar System. (5 ) Prehistoric man, ignorant of astronomical matters, would not have been able to deduce that his world was a satellite of another planet. But, being close enough to Saturn, he would have been able to view that planet as something bigger than the present pin-point of light in the night sky. Can this much, at least, be verified? Evidence of Saturn's former proximity to Earth can be derived in quantum sufficit from the collective mythological record of the ancients but, for the present, the few items presented below should suffice. The first of these concerns the Roman god Janus. That Janus was ...

... , chiefly aqueous, such as today revolves with great swiftness around the planet Jupiter. To make emphatic the inevitable conclusion set forth in nearly all my publications, such canopies must have fallen very largely in the polar regions, and as a result must have left at times an opening in the polar heavens through which the stars, and the light from the sun and moon peeped in upon the earth, while all the rest of the heavens were hidden from the gaze of inhabitants. Such canopies as we see revolving about other planets today, are certainly the wreck of annular (ring) systems, dust and cloud-like matter falling from the equatorial skies of a planet to its poles ...

... the principle of life), breath, is the wind and the rain. At the centre of the sun is a bird walking with dignity; in the bosom of the moon there is a frog. If the sun and the earth were to leave their paths, they would be in opposition, would eclipse each other and be without light. If the wind and the rain were to come out of their time, they would destroy everything and bring forth calamities. If the five planets were to fail in their journey, the states and the provinces would be attacked by scourges." Here again, then, we have a piece of flowery oriental philosophising rather than an ...

... the pestilence which destroyed the Assyrian army before Jerusalem. Mice are a Greek symbol of pestilence; it is Apollo Smintheus (the mouse god) who sends and then stays the plague in Homer, Il.1 . It has long been known that rats are carriers of the plague." This, of course, throws quite a different light on the proceedings to V's planetary simulacrum, and personally I find it much more convincing. I have said it before, but I will say it again : I find it difficult, if not impossible, to believe that the text of ii.141 quoted above refers to an event which was supposedly directly associated with a universally witnessed ...

... , in several of the nuclides common in certain `old' uranium minerals both the reactions (a ,p ) and (p ,a ) are exothermic. At the same time U-decay processes are energetic enough that aparticles, on the one hand, and protons, on the other, have energies well above the coulomb threshold for some light elements. Examples include 1 oB, 11 B, 19F and 27AI. With 5 MeV a-particles, the proton energies from the (a ,p ) reactions would then have energies of 9.9 , 14.4 , 14.8 , and 8.9 MeV, respectively. Reactions started in mixtures of these materials in ...

... the very love of truth alone, is very definitely undermining his mental integrity. LUTHER BURBANK As THE AUTUMN leaves fell at the end of a five-week rainless period, the edges of the pavements of the streets of suburban New York City held layers of thoroughly dried-out, brittle leaves that crumbled to a fine yellow powder of desiccated vegetation; a light rain then washed the finely granulated materials into the gutters, where they changed into mud. I took pains to examine it and found that it was no longer a yellow powder, but had become a dark, slimy mud. When the mud dried out, it became dirt. Dirt becomes hardpan, and hardpan becomes rock.

... years. In fact, because an expanding universe concept seems to the author to be ruled out by energy considerations, he would assign an infinite age to the universe and deny an explosive origin. This would mean that the materials of which the earth is comprised have always existed though they are subject to changes even as drastic as inter-conversions between light and matter. As far as the earth itself is concerned, how long it has existed in globular form is a matter completely outside the knowledge and possible objective discussions of the author. The earth may be as old as the universe itself, it may have formed from other bodies of the universe, it may simply have condensed from ...
