281. Firmament & Chaos by John Ackerman (Book Review). C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... or critical analysis to show why his particular interpretation is correct and other possible alternatives are wrong. I appreciate that this is difficult territory but it is by no means clear that the quoted passages necessarily mean what Ackerman claims they do - he simply proposes his interpretation and asks us to accept it as obviously correct. When it comes to the physics of the end of his scenario, when Mars, Venus, Mercury and Earth parted ways and settled into their present orbits, all he can offer is the suggestion that Hopefully more sophisticated computer modelling will allow us to determine the physical details given the scenario presented here as a starting point. No models yet exist because no one has ...
282. Discussion [Journals] [Aeon]
... friends and acquaintances (Van Flandern and O'Keefe), and then adds an abundance of mainstream references, unsupported speculations, erroneous conclusions, and ad hominem charges as a crown to it all. There may indeed be some wheat among Ellenberger's chaff but, due to spatial constraints and other reasons, I shall defer to those more qualified in the physical sciences than I to respond at a later date. For now, as an antidote to all the scientific handwaving, I would merely refer the reader to an excellent recent book by Paul Davies titled The Mind of God (1992), especially pp. 13ff. and pp. 162ff. Additionally, it appears that the star Sirius ...
283. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... ideas... "The number of revolutionary discoveries which came into their own only after hard battles is legion. In mathematics there is the existence of non-differentiable functions, the theory of transfinite numbers; in astronomy the heliocentric theory of Copernicus, the infinity of the Universe, the theory of gravitation, and the theory of relativity; in physics the mechanics of Galileo and that of Newton, the existence of the vacuum, the complex nature of white light, the velocity of light, wave theory, the kinetic theory of gases; in chemistry the new chemistry of Lavoisier, the new theories of organic chemistry of Laurent and Gerhardt, and atomic theory; In biology the circulation ...

... .; M.B .A ., Univ. of Pennsylvania); Mr. Ellenberger has received degrees in chemical engineering and finance & operations research. His writings on a wide range of subjects have appeared m periodicals as diverse as Analog, New Scientist, Penthouse, Science Digest, Fate and Pursuit, with Velikovskian topics published in Physics Today, Industrial Research & Development and SIS Review & Workshop. His role as an advocate for Velikovsky's ideas led to invited contributions in Zetetic Scholar, Biblical Archaeology Review, Astronomy and Frontiers of Science. WalterFedern (Ph.D ., Vienna Institute); the late Dr. Federn was born and educated in Vienna where he studied ...
285. Empedocles, Healer of the Mind (Concluded) [Journals] [Kronos]
... emphasized that I do not claim to have proved that Empedocles was thinking of collective mind in such contexts; I merely suggest that to read him as referring unambiguously to the usual sort of reincarnation and transmigration is a bit too facile and that these questions require further pondering.) Perhaps at this point a few words should be devoted to the physical or ontological status of the collective mind. Many may wonder just what sort of thing it is. I do not have any of the answers. I do not know whether it is merely the common content or structure that all of our minds have inherited, or whether it actually does things on its own, more or less independently ...
286. The Velikovsky Affair [Books] [de Grazia books]
... the blind opposition to new science, and as insurance that it can no longer happen in our secular and non-magical age, offers the assertion that when at first, ideas are rejected, they may return with additional proof for admission and will be cordially re-examined. On December 21, 1962, Prof. V. Bargmann of the Department of Physics of Princeton University and Prof. Lloyd Motz of the Department of Astronomy of Columbia University published a letter in Science magazine claiming Velikovsky's priority of prediction of the hot surface temperature of Venus, of the existence of the magnetosphere around the Earth, and of the radio noises emanating from Jupiter. We quote from their letter: On 14 October ...
287. The Solar System as a Binary [Books] [de Grazia books]
... > quantavolutionary [2 ] conception of a rapidly developed solar binary system is consonant with observations of nearby star systems. To seventeen light-years, or about one hundred million times the Earth-Sun distance of 150 => gigameters, there are forty-five star systems consisting of sixty stars and seven dark => unseen bodies. Among these are many => physical binary systems. Sixty-one percent of the sixty nearest stars are components of a double or triple star system. Inasmuch as we cannot judge the organization of distant star systems, this statistic may or may not characterize the starry Universe. Even within our sample of sixty nearby stars, the star density and the binary frequency drop with increasing distance ...

... to send any of the following messages to your personal mailing list and to any electronic groups you think might be interested. Help us make this the year of our greatest breakthroughs! MESSAGE 1- FREE NEWSLETTER EXPLORES PLANETARY CATASTROPHE The electronic newsletter THOTH, taking its name from the Egyptian god of learning, discusses new perspectives on the nature of the physical universe and on the role of unstable planets in human history. The bi-monthly newsletter is, and will always remain, free of charge. THOTH deals with the new field of "catastrophics" (the inter- disciplinary study of planetary catastrophe). Our accent is on natural upheavals so recent as to have profoundly affected human imagination. ...
289. The Absurdity of Neutron Stars [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... the science of things that aren't so". Two key symptoms of such science are (1 ) the resort to fantastic theories contrary to our experience, and (2 ) the use of ad-hoc requirements to save the appearances. If we apply these criteria, two disciplines that share line honours for pathological or strange science are cosmology and particle physics. Here are some of the many unstated assumptions underpinning the X-ray pulsar model: It is assumed that the physics of neutral matter and ideal gases on Earth can be used to explain the operation of the glowing balls of plasma we call stars. Wal comments: 99.999% of the universe is made of plasma. It is ...
