141. Checking the Checkered Checker [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... centimetres per second, how far, directly upward, will it have travelled at the end of 1 second? A similar question arises when seeking the distance and time relations for a bullet fired toward zenith with a muzzle velocity, in this case, of \ kilometre per second, while working against gravity. The problem is relatively elementary in physics, but is worth solving. Mistakes are often made, even by professionals, in solving problems of this kind, thus no mockery and derision arc called for. Charles Ginenthal correctly used the muzzle velocity model in his computations. When a gun is fired, one does not divide the muzzle velocity by two to get an average velocity ...
142. "The Seasons Alter": Catastrophism in A Midsummer Night's Dream [Journals] [Kronos]
... values is always and principally society. Everything occurs for the welfare of the tribe, the group. In primitive terms, the life of the tribe is threatened at the beginning by dangers within it. The tribe, to guarantee its continued fertility, must maintain a harmony with the divine and the natural, which are the major factors affecting physical existence. This means that every member must play his role in support of such harmony. Of particular importance is mating and reproduction, especially among those at the top, which must occur between those clearly deserving to be marriage partners, and under the most auspicious circumstances. All of this, which means the very life and future of ...

144. Remarks from the Portland Symposium 3-5 Jan 1997 [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... divide itself into three, then four, equally distributed streams (the 3- and 4-rayed star of Venus)? As Wal explained it to me, if we had not hypothesised such a symmetry, he would have suspected something was wrong. In fact, it was the observed symmetry that helped to convince him of the link to plasma physics. As clarified by Wal, it is in the character of the plasma discharge that, a) the number of streamers will vary as charge differential changes, and 2) the streamers will move into balance, creating a general symmetry irrespective of the number of streamers present. So what appears most artificial in the reconstruction of the Saturn ...
... planet could originally have formed from a solar nebula any closer to the Sun than the orbit of,Jupiter. 1 Later J. G. Hills attempted to show that no planet could initially have formed outside the orbit of' Saturn.2 Between the appearances of these papers, H. Alfven, who later received the Nobel Prize in physics, theorized that the giant planets may have been formed before the "terrestrial (smaller) 3 planets. He also presented arguments for the inverse order of' events. Either way, within a very few years at least three respected scientists argued that all the planets need have been formed neither at the same time nor in their present ...
146. The Celestial Dynamics of "Worlds in Collision" [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , in the case of point-particle Newtonian mechanics, including only Newton's Law of Motion and even disregarding things that Newton would have accepted, such as tidal friction, some aspects of the Velikovskian scenario are untenable. However, if we pass from the idealised mathematical celestial mechanics of point particles to bodies of finite size, which can then have the physical property of being non-rigid (deformable) and can involve other forces besides Newtonian gravity, then I believe that there is some possibility that most, if not all, of the Velikovskian scenario could be consistent with Newton's Law of Motion. However, there are some aspects of the Velikovskian scenario that I believe are not even tenable under these ...
147. To Begin the World Over Again [Journals] [Aeon]
... but also revolutionary. With electromagnetism, overwhelming forces are only the beginning. There are circuits. Birkeland currents in plasma can feed power between stars, around galaxies, and across intergalactic space. A universe filled with power grids instead of vacuum explains: Why the Sun oscillates- in its radiation output, in its sunspot cycle, in its physical size. Why the Sun's corona is much hotter than its photosphere. Why the solar "wind" accelerates. Why the aurora behaves like a gas-discharge tube. Why Io sports plasma-focus device plumes. Why pulsars oscillate at rates from minutes to milliseconds. Why space is filled with "background microwave radiation." An understanding of plasma behavior ...
148. Radiometric Dating: Is the "Decay Constant" Constant? [Journals] [Pensee]
... A FUNDAMENTAL ASSUMPTION Dr. Anderson is President of ERA Systems, Inc., a technical products business based on a number of patents he has invented. ERA (Evaporative Rate Analysis) involves equipment which characterizes material surfaces. Dr. Anderson first became aware of non-random radioactive emissions in December, 1969. Dr. Spangler is Associate Professor of Physics, University of Tennessee, and Consulting Physicist, Baroness Erlanger Hospital, Chattanooga. ABSTRACT Among other requisite assumptions, the validity of radiometric dating procedures, such as the carbon-14 method due to Libby, depends on the thesis that radioactive decay constants are not altered significantly by any possible environmental influence. With the exception of internal conversion and K-capture ...
149. Beyond Bauer [Journals] [Aeon]
... strategy, perhaps, would be to pursue a systematic investigation of the historical evidence regarding Venus' catastrophic past. Such evidence is readily available and more amenable to immediate analysis. A systematic investigation of the written traditions pertaining to Venus' "infancy", moreover, might well reveal that certain aspects of Velikovsky's scenario- such as Venus' physical birth from Jupiter- were misinterpreted by Velikovsky, thereby rendering irrelevant the heretofore voluminous discussion of the physics of such an event. (10) In the second section of Beyond Velikovsky Bauer offers a lengthy, if selective, analysis of Worlds in Collision and seeks to address the oft-asked question of whether Velikovsky was right. Being trained as ...
150. Eden's Flaming Sword by Isaac Vail [Books]
... perfect sun- controller. That from necessity the ripening or death- dealing power of the solar beam was held in. check while the building or life-prolonging power was allowed almost complete sway. These two antagonistic forces of the sunbeam are sufficiently recognized by all. From this it must be seen that every phase and form of life is regulated in the physical world by solar force and always has been. In Eden, then, the sun-concealing vapors insured to man the immunities of a perfect green- house world to all intents and purposes. This means the subjection of all activities, physical, mental and moral, and from sheer necessity the infant race was as innocent and irresponsible as the infant ...
