292. Stekel (Immanuel Velikovsky's Jewish Science) [Books]
... the root of neurosis and had come to look upon ambition, religious feelings, the instinct of self-preservation, and other factors as being contributory to mental illness: "Whereas formerly I used to seek the non-moral behind the moral, I now seek the moral behind the non-moral." (11) Velikovsky was deeply concerned with the inter-relationships between physical and psychical phenomena. Third, Stekel was a champion of short analyses. Freud had originally favored such an approach- his initial treatment of Stekel, for example, only lasted nine sessions- but had steadily revised his time estimates upwards. By the 1920s, he was convinced that "a serious analysis takes at least a year. It may ...
293. Celestial Rings [Journals] [Aeon]
... memories. But if a military parade had just ended, his three sightings of military brass would be unified by a single fact, and thereby would be reasonable. In conclusion, one can either posit that a divinity orchestrated Velikovsky's sequence of planetary collisions, or, to be "scientifically" acceptable, the events must derive from a single physical process. As I noted in my paper, Clube and Napier's cometary hypothesis unifies disparate catastrophic occurrences, and so does the notion of solar rings as described in my paper. The three systematic catastrophes that Wescott lists are at odds with the unified model I proposed. Rather than a series of catastrophes attributable to various agents, my hypothesis ...
294. Geomagnetic Reversals? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Review Vol III No 4 (Spring 1979) Home | Issue Contents Extra Geomagnetic Reversals?Peter Warlow Mr Warlow gained an honours degree in Physics and Mathematics from the University College of North Staffordshire (now Keele University) and is at present a technical researcher for the photographic industry in Essex. Data drawn from a wide range of disciplines suggests an unorthodox explanation of reversals of the earth's magnetic field: inversions of the earth itself, possibly caused by the close passage of a cosmic body, can also explain numerous other phenomena in the earth's history. Reversals in the polarity of the earth's magnetic field have preoccupied earth scientists for nearly three decades, during which time ...
295. Thoth Vol VI, No 2: March 15, 2002 [Journals] [Thoth]
... accelerate down towards the ground. Edgar Bering's balloon flights suggest that the currents responsible for sprites may carry far more oomph than anyone had suspected. Previous estimates suggested that the sprite-inducing current carries about 3000 amperes. Bering's data, on the other hand, puts the figure nearer 12,000 amperes. Whether this huge current could pose any direct physical danger to anyone is unknown. Airliners don't fly in the mesosphere, but sprites can reach down into the cloud tops. And it is certainly possible that sprites could affect spacecraft, Bering suggests. In particular, sprites are the prime suspect in the unexplained downing of a high-altitude balloon a few years ago. Almost as quickly as it ...
296. Scientific Refereeing [Journals] [Pensee]
... June of last year Oreste Piccioni filed suit against two Nobel laureates, Emilio Segre and Owen Chamberlain. Piccioni claimed that Segre and Chamberlain used his design for an antiproton experiment in their prize-winning work, but gave him no credit for it. The case, which has been extensively analyzed in the popular and scientific press, spawned a letter to Physics Today (December, 1972, p. 13) which will interest many of our readers: Leonard Weisberg asks (Physics Today, September, page 13) why so much passion is raised over "unorthodox" scientific theories. Just as the politician wraps himself in the flag and accuses all who disagree with him as being un-American, ...
297. Velikovsky's Sources Volume One [Books]
... Incidentally, Peake suggests that the symbolism of the pillar of cloud & fire may be related to the smoke and flame of the brazier carried at the head of certain types of ceremonial processions) No account of the Exodus would be complete without a mention of manna. Like the bulk of the plagues, this too seems to have a simple physical basis. Werner Keller, in his classic book, "The Bible as History" (1956) writes that "manna is nothing more than a secretion exuded by tamarisk trees and bushes when they are pierced by a certain type of plant- louse which is found in Sinai." That fact has again been doctored into a fiction ...
298. Conclusion: Entropy [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Michael Hawkins, an astronomer at the Royal Observatory in Edinburgh, Scotland, openly admits "Indeed, it takes almost suicidal courage to leave the herd and challenge the authority of the astrophysical establishment. Typically, papers expressing genuinely new ideas are refused publication by referees of reputable scientific journals on the ground that they undermine the generally accepted principles of physics. Those who persist in writing such papers are usually sidelined from the astronomical community by their peers. 312 "Survivors in the field of astronomy not only avoid any work that might be seen as dissent, but cannot afford even to mention dissident ideas. 313 Halton Arp, an internationally renowned astronomer who was driven out of the United ...
... much smoother and cleaner than his spoken variety, which remained "ferocious" to the end of his life- and he was too busy to correct and rewrite it. Instead, he resubmitted an old article (5 ) on his experiments to determine the actual velocity of light. Jueneman and Horace C. Dudley, a Velikovskian professor of radiation physics at the University of Illinois Medical Center, both suggested that the article was about a decade out of date, particularly in light of laser advances; so the article was not accepted. From Ames he traveled to Portland for a symposium on his work at Lewis and Clark College (August 15-17). Claiming that few people had made ...
300. Halton Arp: A Modern-Day Galileo [Journals] [Aeon]
... , much smaller and with a much higher redshift, fifteen times higher than the large galaxy. This incongruity has been ignored for 30 years. The redshift of 1232B is still not listed on the on-line catalog NED  (NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Data-base.) Figure 1. NGC1232 with companions NGC 1232A & 1232B Three galaxies, physically connected, but with extremely different redshifts, which proves that redshift is not an accurate measure of distance. So what do we have here? It's a picture of three galaxies. They follow Hubble's observation that the smaller and fainter a galaxy is, the higher will its redshift be. But these three galaxies are physically connected, which ...
