91. On Saturn At the North Pole [Journals] [Aeon]
... - perhaps along with some other planet-sized body or bodies- was at one time permanently situated directly over the north rotational pole of Earth. Frankly, I think that the whole idea of Saturn hovering over the north pole is rather implausible. I am of course willing to listen, if anybody ever comes up with a set of radically new physical principles of the sort that it would apparently take to make the northernist models viable, but as of now I continue to think of all such models as physically unworkable and as historically unsupported. That ought to be enough for me to say about the matter. People ought to realise that I am simply not a northernist, and they ...
92. Erratics [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... on a hillside."138 Thus, it is assumed that the great glaciers, during the Ice Age, gradually swept immense amounts of rock of all sizes up and down hills to their present locations. The problem with this theory is that an icecap cannot push a large erratic uphill. The reasons for this are based on the basic physics of ice. How ice moves has been known for a very long time, and this knowledge precludes the possibility of a glacier moving a giant boulder at its base up a slope. Ice moves downhill by melting at the base. Gravitational flow of the water and mass above are always in the down slope direction. However, to ...
93. Thoth [Journals] [Thoth]
... $44.00 Make no mistake about it, this CD is a dramatic improvement on the first production. It is both visually interesting and much richer in content, providing some 20 video clips to supplement the main text and still photos. The CD features the work of Australian physicist Wallace Thornhill, who outlines a fundamentally new understanding of physical forces around us. From microcosmic to macrocosmic worlds, from subatomic particles to intergalactic mysteries. Thornhill looks at principles of electricity generally ignored by conventional science, What he finds is a magnificent - but often catastrophic - role of electricity in the organization of the physical world. The work also offers a mind-stretching convergence of physics with the global ...
94. Collective Amnesia and the Catastrophic Basis of Soap Opera (Concluded) [Journals] [Kronos]
... which many similar systems follow the same motion in a medium sensed as a great current. In this universe, man can perceive some of the eddying motions and outside forces which sweep things into juxtapositions and keep the rhythm of the flow but he can never know them all or influence them in any appreciable way. Such a vision of the physical universe and of man's place in it corresponds markedly to emergent holistic physics and Heisenbergian uncertainty concerning man's ability to fathom the real nature of the world. Equally significant, this is also the concept of the world offered by most Eastern metaphysics.(34) Contrasted against this vision of cosmic continuity, however, is a powerful element of ...
95. "Let There Be Light" - A Criticism [Journals] [Kronos]
... comparable to the Battak myth cited above, are few indeed. In our continuing series on the Saturnian phenomenon, we hope to be able to enumerate a few more. Concerning Mullen's contention that Creation and the Deluge were one and the same - see Pensee, Winter 1973, pp. 14-15 - we shall also write elsewhere. LINGUISTICS, PHYSICAL LAWS, AND MACROCOSMIC CHANGE To the Editor of KRONOS: As a former student of Noam Chomsky and Morris Halle, I must protest Roger Wescott's interpretation of their theory of linguistic change (KRONOS IV:I , p. 4). Wescott says ". .. transformational linguists have preferred to formulate diachronic change primarily in terms of ...
96. Discussion with Wal Thornhill and Ralph Sansbury [Articles]
... Discussion with Wal Thornhill and Ralph Sansbury Wal Thornhill: By a remarkable series of coincidences, Dr. Ralph Sansbury is with us this afternoon. The first coincidence was that I managed to see a relatively small advertisement in the Scientific American early this year for the Journal of Classical Physics and since I didn't buy the magazine but merely flipped through it at a newsagents', it was all the more remarkable that I stopped to have a look to see what it was about. I read that the first issue would be devoted to an article by Dr. Ralph Sansbury concerning electron structure. I think most people would stop reading there and pass on to something more interesting, ...
97. Still Facing Many Problems (Part II) [Journals] [Kronos]
... was merely using Warlow's own assumptions (which Warlow explicitly declined to relax when he thought he was correct). Now, it is true that the ability of a cosmic intruder to exert a torque on Earth would be increased by the tidal bulge produced by the interaction. However, such a consideration is only of academic interest, because the physical evidence (presented in the sections on tree rings, ice cores, and sea level) indicates that such flipping never happened. Warlow practically admitted this in his book; "whether or not such bodies [Venus and Mars] could produce a continuous and rapid tilt in a brief transit past the Earth is not certain. Probably not ...
98. The Center Holds [Journals] [Pensee]
... gone to further study, lucid and patient. Like Confucius he eschews rancor, preferring to extend his knowledge of particulars. Over 20 years ago, in the epilogue to Worlds in Collision, he succinctly surveyed the major problems still unsolved. I would like here to elaborate a little on them in each of the disciplines he takes up. PHYSICS These disciplines can be seen as a spectrum of which physics and history form the extremes, the one dealing with general laws for living and non-living phenomena alike, the other with specific records left by the most complex single form of life, man. It is not surprising that in 1950 physicists felt absolved from considering Velikovsky's historical evidence because ...
99. Stars in an Electric Universe [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:5 (Jan 2000) Home | Issue Contents Stars in an Electric Universe Wallace Thornhill "The origin of stars represents one of the most fundamental unsolved problems of contemporary astrophysics." [1 ] The formation of our star and its planetary system is assumed to be inextricably linked. The Nobel Prize winner in physics, Hannes Alfvèn, wrote: "How our solar system was formed is a question that today attracts as much interest as the problem of the Creation did in the past. In many theories advocated today, the basic approach to this problem remains remarkably similar to what it was in ancient times: The author hypothetically assumes some specific primordial ...
... qualitative, for much good science is not quantitative at all (a distinction is sometimes made between so-called hard and soft sciences, the former ones being the more mathematically and quantitatively rigorous). We speak of the natural sciences in contrast to theology or moral philosophy; where does epistemology fit? Is it part of science? There are the physical and the biological sciences. We talk of modern science and of many other kinds of science. One can distinguish three different aspects of science (and people will often talk as though science is merely one of those aspects). In one sense science is a particular body of knowledge, more precisely a set of phenomena accepted as facts ...
