81. The Road to Saturn (Excerpts from an Autobiographical Essay) [Journals] [Aeon]
... :3 (1988) Home | Issue Contents The Road to Saturn (Excerpts from an Autobiographical Essay)Dwardu Cardona PART II I 1977 saw the publication of George Michanowsky's The Once and Future Star. In this work Michanowsky maintained that the rise of civilization and the origin of religious beliefs owe their impetus to the sudden appearance of a bright light in the sky. But the similarity to the theory of Saturn's flare-up ends there. Michanowsky's theory was based on the remains of a supernova, in the form of a pulsar, discovered in 1968 by the Molonglo Radio Observatory in Australia. The pulsar was detected in the southern constellation Vela and thus received the popular designation Vela X. ...
82. Relativity Corner [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the Dicke coupling constant taken as negative rather than positive as usually assumed. Bass says that the theoretical consequences of this are considerable: if it is correct, neutron stars can exist but black holes cannot; the outer layers of a nearby star can produce a gravitational' redshift that makes a star in our galaxy appear to be billions of light years away, thus explaining the astronomical data of Halton Arp. Bass has proposed a number of tests of his theory which could be conducted inside the Solar System - but to have these carried out he must first get his work published in a established refereed journal . . . . Wal Thornhill has passed on details [7 ] of ...
83. Phobia, Amnesia, and the Psyche [Journals] [Kronos]
... . Nightfall(4 ) "If the stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore, and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of God?" Taking the above words of Emerson as an inspirational point of departure, Isaac Asimov deftly weaves a chilling tale of the planet Lagash. Lighted by six suns, its history of civilization displays an ominous cyclic character shrouded in mystery. Various successive cultures have been consumed by fire at the apex of their greatness without a hint as to the cause; not a shred of concrete evidence has ever been left behind to account for the past conflagrations; neither a meaningful recollection nor a ...
84. Proposed Variations on the Saturnian Configuration [Journals] [Aeon]
... crescent. Cardona himself specifies that Talbott's model, as also his own, "would seem to require planets stacked at right angles to the plane of the ecliptic."  He then adds that: "This is necessitated by ancient documents which unequivocally demand the solar illumination of Saturn's ring(s ) as a rotating crescent of light around the central orb."  Furthermore, in a different article, Cardona also states that: "There is nothing in the record which makes it evident that the ancients were aware that this cycle was due to the illumination of the Sun coupled with the rotation of the Earth. The Sun was not even assigned a ...
85. Electricity in Astronomy /3 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... same direction. If there are two streams of electrons travelling at velocity v, the magnetic fields produced by their movement would cause attraction of the streams, but as their charges are of the same sign, the streams would also repel. The ratio of the magnetic to electric force is v2:c2, where c is the velocity of light. If v is 10% of c, the force of attraction would be only 1% of the force of repulsion. However if there are also positive ions in the channel, the electrical repulsion is reduced and in a plasma with equal positive and negative charges the magnetic force is dominant and the current path would be a filament ...
86. Trisms and Planetary Iconography [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... appear on the upper half of the base top. On the lower half of the base top, other symbols unite in a vertical formation which resembles a Rorschach blot. Does this symbol, or apparition, represent the god Dolichenos? What forces were liberated that could create it? Figure 26, my sketch of an apparatus called a Plasma Light Machine. An electrode is located at the center of a glass sphere filled with an inert gas. The electrode serves as a source of ions attracted to the inner surface of the sphere. As they stream toward their destination, the ions emit light and illuminate their own path, which, because of deflection, has become crooked and ...
87. A Fire not Blown [Books]
... He was presented with a crown. Minos had a daughter, Ariadne, who helped Theseus to find his way in the labyrinth where he was to kill the Minotaur. The usual version of the story is that Ariadne gave Theseus a thread to help him to find the way out. Another version is that he had a magic crown of light. After killing the Minotaur, Theseus sailed to Naxos with Ariadne. Here, he either abandoned her, or lost her to a rival, the god Dionysus. There was also a story that she was killed by Artemis. Theseus then went to Delos, where he taught the Delian girls the crane dance. He sailed homewards to ...
88. From Myth to a Physical Model [Journals] [Aeon]
... congruent with the myths on which the thesis rests. Mythically-Based Model For over twenty years now, I have argued that a planetary assembly I called the "polar configuration" once moved close to the Earth, dominating the sky of ancient star worshippers. The evolution of the theory has advanced significantly in recent years, with certain details throwing new light on the celestial images involved. Given the scale of the subject matter and the recent amendments to the mythically-based model, the only efficient way to proceed is by synopsis first, then by elaboration of discrete story elements, so that there is a "whole story" to which one can relate the discrete parts. In keeping with this ...

... and sealing wax" look positively restricted in scope. There are fortresses sand potters' vessels; pits and traps; nets and mountain fires; wheels and crop stubble; the roaring of sea waves; dung and broken teeth; trees and smoke; arrows and ovens; fruit and melting wax; fountains and rivers; mud and trumpets; light and dark; butter and drunkards; razors and thorns; mountains and valleys; winds and storms; the clapping of hands and snake charmers; grass and dew; snow and ice. It is against this background, then, that V's fire and brimstone' and thunder and lightning' extracts should be seen, for the catastrophism' ...

... city where men, when they die, become gods. The story of its far-off origins has been handed down in legend. NARRATOR 1: At the beginning of time when the gods created the world, it was a monstrous emptiness without form, without men or animals, without trees or life of any kind. And there was no light. [Blackout. Music.] VOICE: MITOA IN OC YOHUAYAN, IN AYAMO TONA, IN AYAMO TLATHUI, QUILMACH, MOCENTLALIQUE , MONONOTZQUE IN TETEO IN UMPA, TEUTIHUACAN.
