171. The Geological History of the Earth [Books]
... , it is necessary to define most of them as precisely as possible. 1. Geology (from the Greek words ge = earth, and logos = discourse) is the science that studies the origin of the materials composing our planet, their nature, distribution, and different arrangements (or structures). The study of the chemical and physical properties of the Earth's materials (rocks) is called structural geology: it comprises geochemistry, petrology, crystallography, and mineralogy. The study of the changes in the distribution and arrangement of the Earth's materials is dynamical geology. This last may be divided into the study of: (a ) The physical principles and forces involved in, ...
172. Propaganda And Scientific History [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... ibid., p. 262] The explicit use of loaded pejorative terms such as "pseudocosmologist," "wild claims" and "wacky ideas" further exemplify the hostility of Davidson's approach to Velikovsky. However, the point in question is: What was the dispute really about? Jastrow took Sagan to task for his misuse of gravitational physics. Sagan had maintained in his criticisms that the probability of one near collision between planets and other near collisions thereafter were "independent" probabilities. Jastrow correctly understood that the other near collisions were "interdependent" and not "independent" just as Velikovsky had properly criticized Sagan on this very point. Jastrow stated what Davidson could not bring ...
173. The Role of Ancient Myths in Orthodox Natural Science [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. II No. 1 (August 1976) Home | Issue Contents The Role of Ancient Myths in Orthodox Natural Science A. M. PATERSON Historical myths are culturally based. Natural sciences supposedly base their myths* upon physical events of non-human phenomena as they are interpreted through logical perspectives. These logical perspectives are dependent upon scientific theories and their models. Historical myths indicate the reporting of the lives of the people after and during socio-political events. Reigns of kings and physical holocausts that were disruptive or fatal to the lives of the people were recorded. These reports aim to perpetuate socio-political ideologies or they are written to justify the destruction of a socio-political reign. ...
174. Reexamination of the Foundations [Journals] [Pensee]
... forgotten what their foundations are. But Velikovsky should not be rejected on the basis of 100 years of tradition. It may be that these 100 years of tradition have rested on very insecure foundations. Scientist, Philosopher And Poet The following is excerpted from a telephone interview on March 22, 1972, with Dr. Lynn Trainor, professor of physics at University of Toronto. Trainor, who is performing specialized work in nuclear physics and statistical mechanics, also maintains an interest in the social implications of science. Velikovsky is a remarkable man of extraordinary intelligence and great insight, but he doesn't fit into the usual mold of scientists. He is partly a scientist, but also partly a ...
175. Victory of The Sun [Books] [de Grazia books]
... period of human nature, the dominant role of the Sun was largely unrealized by mankind. Over half the period was completed before the Sun was fully visible. All of the great gods were of the Super-Uranus complex. The regularity of the Sun once it appeared in the skies, worked against its becoming a great god. After the major physical changes had been wrought in the skies, when the visible planets moved reliably on remote cycles, and when others that had been gods had disappeared from sight, the Sun came to be a symbol of eternal security and was credited with the more stable and beneficent traits of the gods. "Old Sol" called up the affection of ...
176. The Titius-bode Law of Planetary Distances - its History and Theory [Journals] [Pensee]
... for succeeding planets, in the simple formula rn = 4 + 3+ 2n Is it true, accurately? If so, is it anything more than a coincidence, as many astronomers have felt and still feel? Or does it betray an underlying order of nature, apprehension of which must ultimately permit deduction of the result directly from general physical laws? Nieto himself seems unconvinced after examining a great amount of accumulated scientific evidence. It is the diverse nature of the evidence that has a particular appeal to those who are less than satisfied with the patois of standard celestial mechanics based on consideration of gravitational forces alone. These were the only cosmic forces known to Isaac Newton who invented ...
177. Low-energy Bulk-process Alchemy [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1997:1 (Sep 1997) Home | Issue Contents Announcements Low-energy Bulk-process Alchemy Monday, June 16, 1997: One-Tenth Gram of Thorium Becomes Titanium & Copper Cincinnati, Ohio: In an upset of the fundamental dogmas of high-energy nuclear physics, a small group of inventors has achieved reliable, multiply-confirmed, replicable-upon-demand, low-energy, bulk-process, high-speed, dirt-cheap, modern alchemy. For example, in less than an hour, one-tenth gram of radioactive thorium has been transmuted into nine-hundredths gram of titanium plus one-hundredth gram of copper. Conventional-minded physical scientists have long-proclaimed low-energy bulk-process transmutation of one chemical element into another to be a flatly impossible "ancient and medieval dream ...
178. Comments on Electric Stars [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... temperature as required by the perfect gas theory. As for the calculations about the density of the sun - which is proportional to its mass - which in turn is determined by the measured gravitational attraction of the sun for the Earth, I believe we have a problem there too. As I mentioned in a more recent post, "our physics is lacking in some crucial areas." To put it bluntly, I do not believe that Einstein's view of gravity as curved space is correct or even helpful. There is an alternative classical model which shows great promise and relates the inertial and gravitational mass to induced electrostatic dipoles in nucleons. That means that the gravitational "constant' ...
179. Still Facing Many Problems [Journals] [Kronos]
... quickly as indicated by Velikovsky, then why have not the orbits of the planets assumed a new Bode-type configuration since the demise of the planet posited by Ovenden whose former presence at the asteroid belt is reflected in the present orbits? Over the past four years I have come to appreciate that, even if Velikovsky were right, there are good physical reasons why astronomers and other scientists have opposed him so tenaciously. Unfortunately, many of these reasons, often based on information developed since Velikovsky wrote his books, have never been discussed in Velikovskian forums or have never been discussed in a fully informed manner. Examples of the former include the Worzel Ash, ice cores, and plate tectonics ...
180. Collective Unconscious Mind. Ch.1 Of Racial Memory (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... From "Mankind in Amnesia" © 1982 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Collective Unconscious Mind In 1930 I spent the summer on a "working vacation* in Zurich. During the preceding winter I had written a paper "On the Physical Existence of the World of Thought". In Kuessnacht, near Zurich, I visited Professor Eugen Bleuler, for decades the undisputed dean of psychiatry. It was Bleuler who opened the doors of academia to Sigmund Freud by assigning his (Bleuler's) assistant Carl Jung at Burgholzli mental hospital to study Freudian theory with a view to its application in the wards. Bleuler and Freud both were born in 1856, but while Freud ...
