241. The Inconstant Heavens [Books] [de Grazia books]
... (1929) with a chapter titled Escape from Peril. ' He points out that fear is the spring of the search for immutable perfect entities, for the glorification of regularity and invariance at the expense of diversity and change. By rationalizing the beliefs in the heavenly bodies as gods and making them the expression of a higher realm (higher physically and morally) which is rational, regular, and unalterable, Aristotle set up the foundations of classical science. In a similar vein, Freud [7 ] asks on what foundation does man build the feeling of security with which he armours himself against the dangers both of the external world and of human environment. ' In answering he ...

... to rather odd modern rituals. But now I wish to focus in more closely to specific features of the configuration. In this way, I hope to be able to illustrate this bizarre scenario more clearly by examining specific images and ideas of the Maya that not only helps confirm the reality of the subject matter, but helps us understand the physical relationships, if not even some of the physics, involved. Mats "He of the Mat was an eponym of rulership among most people of ancient Mexico." [42] The title of the famous Quiché epic Popul Vuh is normally translated as the Book of Council, because the root of popol means "mat," and ...

... but was a lonely man. Not once and not twice he called me to follow his example and be content in isolation. Don't you feel fine being alone? I feel unconcerned being alone. ' The fact was that most physicists of the younger generation, including those connected with the Institute for Advanced Study, opposed his later stand in physics that conflicted with the quantum theory, which requires the principle of chance or indeterminacy in natural events. On one occasion I answered his admonition: Yes, there are two heretics in Princeton. Only one is glorified; the other, vilified. ' "His theory increased immensely the regard the general public has for science: If a ...

The sixty or so attendees included many well-known faces and some new ones, even a young Chinese astronomer who had come all the way from Beijing to hear Halton Arp. SIS Chairman, Trevor Palmer, welcomed us and introduced the first speaker, Halton Arp, on Observational Cosmology Impacts Modern Physics'. Having had the good fortune to read a large chunk of Arp's book Seeing Red [* ]on the way to the conference, I was able to get more out of his presentation than I would have if I had approached the subject cold. Active galaxies, Arp told us, eject material. In the 1950s, ...

... seemed to be verified by findings of remotely operated space probes, interest in his work increased. Early on Immanuel Velikovsky had planned to write a sequel to Worlds in Collision covering the eras of Saturn and Jupiter, but it never happened. Yet among Velikovsky's followers, there are new efforts to get on with the awesome task of reconstructing the physical history of the Solar System and the general history of man, from the dawn of human memory until the age of celestial tranquility. Many of those involved in this effort are contributors to The Cataclysm. One of our goals will be to reconstruct, on the basis of mythical and historical data, as many details as possible about former ...

... past, has inspired the great poets of the race and taxed the limits of rational thought. The modern mind has, in a sense, been shut off from a source of stimulation which formerly led humankind, through visual perception alone, to develop particular cosmological conceptions. We now have substituted a more realistic view. at least in the physical sense, of the natural order in space but only by interposing technology between the eye and the mind. This has clarified questions regarding the nature of space but, in the process of mechanization, the "mental picture" of the universe itself has become wholly abstracted. The un-aided eye cannot see it. It must be assembled in ...

... were born in solar systems with two or more massive planets the size of Jupiter, according to astrophysicists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). "The properties of these new planets are completely different from those of the planets in our own solar system," said Frederic A. Rasio, an assistant professor in the Department of Physics. Professor Rasio and Eric B. Ford, an MIT sophomore and physics major, propose that the properties of the new planets, all of which are themselves Jupiter-sized, may be the result of instabilities that developed when they formed. These instabilities, in turn, were caused by the planets' close proximity to one or more other ...
