312. The Method of Science [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... breaking up the rock through which the force passed." No footnote is possible since this "effect" is a classic miracle, not a feature of reality. The "force" referred to by Ginenthal has a closer relationship to a theological "Holy Ghost," or to a "Star Wars" blessing, than to a measurable physical phenomenon in the real world. Mascons are caused by another such miracle, in which (p . 60) "the passing protoplanet Venus pulled mass toward the surface on the side of the Moon nearest Venus....This is explicable only in terms of a tidal distortion." But there are no mathematical models of gravity ...
313. Science and Novelty [Journals] [SIS Review]
... for want of a wider perspective but also through a lack of understanding, adaptability, curiosity and tolerance. To provide a somewhat more concrete illustration of the ideas put forward above, while necessarily confining ourselves to brief examples, two recent and well-known cases will be considered: the advent of the theory of relativity and that of quantum theory in physics. Another less well-known and very recent example, still open to discussion, will then be added. Relativity Contemporary diagram of the Copernican universe The theory of relativity covers a wide area, most of which we need not (and cannot) touch on here. Looking at the theory in detail, one is inclined to say that it ...
314. Collective Behaviorism and Ancient Astronomy [Journals] [Horus]
... with animal life at all levels of complexity has demonstrated that this means of adaptation exists throughout the animal kingdom. In the laboratory, for purposes of scientific observation and control, the complex occasions for conditioned learning that Nature provides were reduced to their simplest expression-stimulus-response. The relationships between these variables have been studied intensively in a variety of physical and temporal configurations. These experiments have made clear the lawful natural order of stimulus-response relationships that result in the formation of conditioned learning. There are many natural situations that create in complex, vital form the simpler, controlled models of the research laboratory. As any organism lives through its daily routines, a variety of environmental sensations directly trigger ...
315. Historical Paradise and Collective Psychology [Journals] [Horus]
... would be only logical to suppose that there must have been a time prior to the onset of mankind's ontological disease, and that if such a time were impressed on human memory it would be remembered as a happy, golden, paradisal age. The reason generally given for disputing the historicity of the paradise myths seems to be that no adequate physical evidence has been found to prove the reality of a Golden Age to the satisfaction of archaeologists and anthropologists. But what relics should we expect to find? According to the myths, early human beings were concerned to coordinate terrestrial cycles of germination and growth with cosmic or celestial rhythms. Therefore we should expect to find evidence that the earliest ...
316. The Hermes Connection [Journals] [Aeon]
... and often problematical. However, to a limited extent, the symbolic Hermes as a non-physical concept may be provisionally compared with the Hindu Bodhisattva- Sanskrit for existence in wisdom- since in both Buddhism and Taoism the path of hermeneutical enlightenment comes from within the creative person. As a corporeal concept, however, there is a tentative though viable physical manifestation of the hermetic phenomenon, the effects of which, as I previously stated, anticipated the precipitous rise in these new 6th century religious philosophies. But, before discussion of any conjectured physical events, a more forensic approach is needed to fortify the cataclysmic scenario with the help of certain word meanings and select elements of myth. To ...
317. The Weakness of the Venus Greenhouse Theory [Journals] [Kronos]
... curve contains no features characteristic of reflection from ice crystals. Evidently the clouds consist of neither ice nor water but of dust." Also: "The form of the monochromatic albedo curve in the 2-2.5 micron range contradicts the notion of a greenhouse effect due to water vapor." G. V. Rosenberg of the Institute of Physics of the Atmosphere, Academy of Sciences, USSR, writes in its Doklady, vol. 148, #2 : "The extreme weakness of the absorption bands of water in the vapor state and in the condensed state in the light reflected from Venus excluded a priori that clouds containing water exist on the planet." Also "the ...
318. Elevated To Unorthodoxy: The American Philosophical Society. File III (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... Dalton and Avogadro's hypothesis, Baer and the theory of evolution. Two general conclusions may be noted. (1 ) It is difficult to tell at any given time whether or not any given unorthodoxy actually may contain seeds for further scientific progress. One of the reasons for rejecting Velikovsky is that his ideas imply a revision of much of orthodox physical theory; yet it is difficult to predict just how much of present physical theory will still seem valid three centuries from now; Einstein, for example, cannot bring himself to accept the conclusions and premises of present quantum mechanics. Yet we must note that Velikovsky's ideas imply that gross phenomena did not in the past occur as they do ...

... ribbon to ferry materials such as satellites and replacement parts for space stations- or even people- up into space. The project could become a reality as soon as 15 years from now, experts say. "Technically it's feasible," said Robert Cassanova, director of the NASA Institute for Advanced Concepts. "There's nothing wrong with the physics." THORNHILL COMMENTS Here we have another example where technology has outstripped science. So, when Robert Cassanova says "There's nothing wrong with the physics" we may be sure that he means the old, electrically sterile physics applied to the cosmos. The continual cosmic discharge, which powers the storms on Earth, must be considered when ...
320. A Hypothetical Ancient Telescope [Journals] [Horus]
... accordance with the later discovered laws of Johannes Kepler in the 17th Century. It also allowed the ancient astronomers to predict solar and lunar eclipses, and allowed solar and lunar calendars to be set down with great accuracy. The Alpine Valley on the Moon [NASA] Having accomplished this, there was not a great deal to say about the physical nature of the Moon or planets by Ptolemy or the other cosmologists. Not one lunar drawing was found before the 16th century. The later copyists, who immortalized Ptolemy's system, were more concerned with a world-view and its uses for navigation and prediction of phenomena than with actual physical drawings of individual objects that may or may not have been ...
