... pp.104-8. In an earlier contribution, Dr Wolfe proposed that the world's most enduring narratives rest on ancient memories of momentous shared experiences. Here he suggests that this common denominator can be seen in startling parallels between unconnected traditions. HAMLET is a play which has been approached from so many angles that, if one wished to construct a physical model to represent this phenomenon, it would look like an overcrowded pincushion. So many people have had their say on the issue of this drama's meaning, nature, structure and components that the result is bewildering to the non-specialist and a jangle of "schools" to the specialist. Nevertheless, I wish to add one more analysis. ...

... of sub-atomic particles [13,14]. Amongst his various inventions was the triggering system for the atomic bomb, and he was present when the bomb was dropped over Hiroshima, measuring its yield [13,14]. He also invented a much used ground-controlled approach system for aircraft landings, and made many important discoveries in elementary particle physics [13]. As regards the K-T boundary, Luis Alvarez came up with the idea of using meteoritic dust as an indicator of the timescale, on the assumption that this hit the Earth at a constant rate [13,15]. For a sedimentary rock, the percentage of meteoritic dust it contains must be given by the ...

403. Thoth Vol III, No. 5: March 15, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... effects of the ideal gas law, gravity/radiation-pressure equilibrium, and thermonuclear reactions. Discrepancies between observations and the predictions of theory are accounted for by adjusting the theory to fit the facts (by more detailed articulation or by ad hoc amendment) or by discounting-even ignoring-facts that don't fit, that make no sense. From the viewpoint of plasma physics, the term "sun" refers to a set of observations (not quite the same set as for established theory, and certainly with different degrees of importance attached) understood as effects of Birkeland currents, anode discharge characteristics, and driven circuits. While not denying the existence of gravity and gasses and fusion, it dismisses them as ...

... he has argued that certain events that he postulates would not contravene those laws, whereas others have said (but not proved) that those events would contravene those laws. Velikovsky has expressed skepticism about the theory of gravitation. I could agree if Asimov were to point to evidence that Velikovsky does not grasp the implications of some fundamental points of physical science (see Chapter 7). As it is, though, Asimov's account is so inaccurate and misleading that he stands revealed of either ignorance or 142 Beyond Velikovsky misrepresentation when he writes about the Velikovsky affair. Label with Care The important point is that it is not easy to be certain objectively speaking whether or not a ...

... find it amid the dust of centuries in that word "Magnes" in Didot's Historic Fragments, cited by O'Neil, which states that the people of Magnesia, called Magnetes, regarded Magnes as an evil character because he inspired the Magnesian women with love. In the first place Love, as it figures in myth, is the trend of physical scenes which expressed the natural inclination of objects in their move ment toward a common focus. The universal motion of canopy matter collecting in the northern sky was regarded as being caused by the love with which they were inspired for that omphalic center. Venus, the goddess of love, was located in that region. She was made the ...

... not affect Mercury's orbital plane, which remains inclined at c. 7 degrees to the ecliptic the greatest inclination of any planetary orbit before Pluto's 17 degrees. Thus, unless some unique source of torque can be invoked, precession of the MOP does not seem to be a viable explanation for the Newgrange pictographs. The MOP is not a physical entity; it is essentially a geometrical concept, so it cannot be affected directly by physical forces or torques. Our Moon revolves around Earth as a result of its orbital momentum in combination with Earth's gravitational attraction. In principle, a force system could be calculated which would progressively disturb the Moon's position relative to Earth and make the orbit ...

... of Velikovsky's Comet Milton Zysman Introduction "Of all the mysterious phenomena which accompanied the Exodus, this mysterious pillar seems the first to demand explanation." Velikovsky came to his catastrophic thesis through a search for a reliable chronology for ancient middle eastern history. This search, born of the realization that both Egyptians and Israelites alike went through a great physical upheaval, gave rise to the most influential work on catastrophism published in this century. Hebrew traditions of the red and poisonous Nile, the impenetrable darkness, the hot stones from heaven, the great winds and noise, the anomalous behaviour of insects and animals and the tidal effect at the Sea of Passage were collected and matched to other ...

... though he agrees and stresses that "if a planet-sized object were to pass close by the Earth", the consequences would be the very events described in Worlds in Collision. I thank Mulholland for saying "Velikovsky's challenge is not one to be decided on a basis of belief or unbelief." Mulholland continues: "He strives to build physically plausible solutions that involve testable ideas. He is not a mystic." --and this when some prominent scientists announced that I belong in one group with palmists, astrologers, or believers in a flat earth. But when Mulholland says that the rotation of Mars refutes the theory of recent catastrophism, he has grasped a weak reed- is it ...

... . Later, after the myths evolved and Osiris became the lord of heaven, the backbone became synonymous with the Ladder of Heaven. This confluence had to happen because the backbone and the ladder were actually the same linear shining structure that linked the planets of the Saturnian configuration. As we will see shortly, there is now evidence from plasma physics that the Saturnian polar column was likely formed by a plasma tube carrying electric current. And as the physical dynamics changed, different parts of the structure were more prominent at different times. The famous Djed or Tet (Fig. 6) "was the column said to have represented the spine of Osiris and which Talbott has already identified ...
