321. Thoth Vol V, No 12: November 30, 2001 [Journals] [Thoth]
... start with will be preserved in what you end with. No matter how much you chase them around a computer, assumptions will never change into facts. Amy Comments Gupta is concerned with "widespread misappropriation of the language of mathematics in the social and biological sciences", but in the 21st Century, his accusation applies as well to the physical sciences, including astronomy. By ignoring- first from ignorance, then in defense of an outmoded electrically neutral model- the fact that the universe is 99% plasma, astronomy has misappropriated the language of math to explain galactic dynamics, star and planet formation. Most of the math of astronomy is based entirely on gravitation theory, at ...
322. Einstein and Relativity [Journals] [SIS Review]
... was not dogmatic and was a modest, thoughtful and open-minded man. As late as 1949 he was reported as saying: There is not a single concept of which I am convinced that it will stand firm and I feel uncertain whether I am in general on the right track' [3 ]. Einstein's work is a cornerstone of today's physics and it is almost universally accepted by most specialists but has its validity really been proved beyond dispute? Special Relativity Einstein's Relativity Theory comes in both Special and General forms. It is one of the most widely-known yet least understood parts of modern physics. Most people are aware of his proposition that all motion is relative, his claim that ...
323. Velikovsky and Catastrophism: A Hidden Agenda? [Journals] [Aeon]
... for social lebensraum which gave rise to a jealous anti-Semitism. The Jew came to be seen as the radical and subversive opponent of German ideals, which is the logical outcome of a clash over territory, especially as the newly-united Germany in the second half of the19th century sought to push aside all the old non-Germanic standards in music, poetry, physics, philosophy and so on in order to attain academic, creative, financial and military dominance in Europe. There were several spectacular incidents of anti-Semitism in France, Germany and Russia when Velikovsky was young which would have been topics of household conversation. The situation in 1918 or 1933 was therefore not new, but simply brought the problem to ...
324. Velikovsky's Dreamwork [Journals] [Aeon]
... . His first article, on psychic energy, had dealt with thought transfer over distance and his more recent work on dreams dealt with language as a mode of thought transfer over time. From the beginning he had rejected Jung's notion of genetic inheritance of symbols or thoughts; in 1935, he began looking for a psychological mechanism to account for physical phenomena. In an article published in a Stekelian journal, for instance, he postulated a "psychic anaphylaxis." In medical jargon, anaphylaxis is a type of allergy in which there is excessive hypersensitivity to foreign substances introduced into the body. Similarly, psychological anaphylaxis is hypersensitivity to a traumatic experience in such a manner that, when ...
325. The Electric Universe: Slide Presentation & Notes by Wallace Thornhill [Journals] [Aeon]
... by Amelia Acheson Thornhill's presentation offers a visual invitation to toss aside the straightjacket of paradigm paralysis and to explore the Solar System from an electric point of view. He covers an enormous range of phenomena, from subatomic particles through stellar evolution, floodlighting our understanding of the universe with insights garnered from mythical symbols, space probes, and the plasma physics lab. As an illustration, let me compare the received explanation re the tail of Halley's Comet with Thornhill's electric account, both presented in light of photographs returned by the ESA spacecraft Giotto in March, 1986. The standard theory has it that: "Comets grow tails only when they get warm enough for ice and dust to boil ...
326. Lucid Dreaming and Visualization Techniques in The Sacred Tales of Aelius Aristides [Journals] [Aeon]
... . Religionists will note the implication that communication with one's god is a skill which requires learning and practice. Elderly monks and nuns, who have spent a lifetime striving to master the art of intense prayer, will no doubt concur. Conversely, psychologists will observe that the ability to attain various relaxed states of consciousness- in which the five physical senses are less dominant- also requires learning and practice. Either way, one central point concerning the experience of Aristides- and scores of other devotees of Asklepios- s clear: When people are placed in an environment in which they expect to dream of divine nocturnal visits by their favorite deities, such dreams are routinely achieved. How ...
327. Gerontology, Environment, and Geological Catastrophism [Journals] [Kronos]
... general tendency of a continuous decrease in geomagnetic field intensity during the past 2000 years. However, it is not clear whether this decrease is part of a short-lived exponential decay, or whether it is part of a long-term cyclical variation in field intensity. In an interesting series of articles, (12) Thomas G. Bames, Professor of Physics at the University of Texas at El Paso, has shown that the Earth's magnetic moment is decaying, (13, 14) and his conclusion is that it is an exponential decay and that the half-life is 700 years.(15) This conclusion is not widely accepted but does follow logically from Bames' arguments based on Maxwell's electromagnetic ...
328. Catastrophist Geology [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... accepted, and the unknown. Actualism as a method is a function of our ignoran ce and our prejudices, and can only be applied to a restricted number of phenomena. Applied uncritically, it has done extensive harm. The examples also illustrate that geologists are overly afraid of physicists; meanwhile they continue to adhere to a natural philosophy which physics has discarded since Einstein's youth. If there is an inconsistency between geological features and accepted physical laws, we should not wait for the physicist's approval, but should notify them that there is something missing in their system. Both geology and physics could benefit thereby. Catastrophism admits the occurrence of discontinuities in Earth history - because we observe them ...
329. Whence Homo? [Journals] [Aeon]
... is certain. And if, as I have suggested, the supposed temporal sequence of the accepted divisions of the Tertiary is not real, the hypothesized ancestries must be rethought. Either way, the desired continuum will never be discovered since it never existed. Anthropologist Gale Kennedy informs us that there is little, if any, evidence of gradual physical change in Homo from the Pliocene to the Middle Pleistocene. (3 ) The creation of man, as in all of the biosphere, was accomplished in quantum jumps. Because of the existence of real genealogical gaps separating distinct types, family trees will continue to be speculative. AUSTRALOPITHECUS Man is today the only living erect bipedal (two-footed ...
330. In Kepler's Company. File III (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... the interview appear like a testament, utterances of a now dead person spoken to a witness. Illustrated with pictures of Einstein's home and of the street he used to walk on his way to the Institute for Advanced Studies, the piece attracted much attention. Einstein and Cohen talked about "the history of scientific thought and great men in the physics of the past." As Cohen reported it, Einstein started by saying: "There are so many unsolved problems of physics. There is much that we do not know; our theories are far from adequate." They spoke of Newton, whom Einstein had "always admired," and of the fact that Newton would not ...
