51. Abbreviations, Glossary and Bibliography [Books] [de Grazia books]
... gas or plasma. So viewed, cosmic rays and stellar/solar wind ions are particles. periastron means the least separation of the principals in a binary. Similarly, its homologues are perigee and perihelion when orbiting the Earth or the Sun. Elsewhere, the term pericentron is used to describe the closest approach between two bodies in orbit. physical binary system is here defined to consist of two bodies which are mutually dependent in respect to their orbital revolution about each other. In multiple star systems, which also exist, more than two bodies are in revolution about a common centre-of-motion, often designated as their baricentre. plasma is a gas in which the electrons are separated from the ...
52. The Origin And Evolution Of Stars [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... contradiction is simply too great to give credence to the conventional theory of stellar evolution. Finally, one asks, Would not by retro-calculation the prior body that evolved into a pulsar possess even greater mass, electromagnetic energy, and rotational velocity than a pulsar? The only bodies capable of greater rotational velocity-even above the speed of light-able to maintain their physical integrity at these rotational velocities are black holes. The conclusion that I draw, based on Electro-Gravitic principles, is that stellar formation is not a condensation collapse process from clouds of dust, and gas, as conventional theory posits, but one of mass reduction by electromagnetic energy emission, then particle emission and physical expansion of black holes. ...
53. Aeon Volume I, Number 4: Contents [Journals] [Aeon]

54. Zetetic Scholar Nos. 3 & 4 April 1979 [Articles]
... of luminosity, and the dissipation of material in comets argue for a short life-time. Fifty two years after the Exodus the Hebrews had arrived in Palestine. In the Bible there is the famous story that while Joshua engaged in a battle the sun and moon stood still for about a whole day.9 Velikovsky discovered that a similar account of physical phenomena, although variously told, is found in the myths and legends of peoples all over the world. For example, in Mexico a prolonged night is recorded.10 By comparing different accounts of the same natural events it is possible to cross-check one tradition against another: one story may contain details which provide pieces of the puzzle omitted ...
55. From Myth to Physical Model [Articles]
... From Myth to Physical Model Dave Talbott Every catastrophist following a Velikovskian approach to myth must continually ask himself: how seriously do I believe that myth can illuminate an unknown past? The question will pursue the catastrophist relentlessly because his theoretical approach is challenged every time he wonders if an extraordinary celestial phenomenon-some possibility yet to be admitted by mainstream science-might explain a particular form or episode of myth. And the path he has chosen leaves little room for compromise. Logic does not permit one to pick and choose which unusual mythical themes one will take seriously. If myth has a reference in spectacular natural events, then no well-established mythical theme can be ignored. Sidestepping various themes in order to ...
56. "Mechanics Bears Witness" [Journals] [Pensee]
... force no longer varies with the inverse square of the separation distance, rather with the fifth power of the reciprocal distance. Such forces are quite imperceptible at distances where inverse-square forces are themselves small-but they are by no means either unimportant or even secondary in importance when the distance is small. Such short-range forces are well known in other branches of physics. In addition to the calculations of Burman already mentioned, there are some other calculations in celestial mechanics in which short-range forces of different origin are predominant. The oldest of these is the D'Alembert-Laplace calculation of the deflection of Lexell's comet of 1770 during its near-passage in close proximity to Jupiter: the normally insignificant or moderate perturbing attraction exerted by ...
... hypothesis of fatal antecedent improbability. Moreover, when one considers the enormous variety and breadth of the fields from which its evidences of truth must be derived; when one remembers how recent are those comparative sciences on whose results the argument must chiefly depend; when one observes that many of the most striking of our alleged proofs, both in the physical and in the anthropological domain, are precisely the latest of the conclusions of these most modern of all sciences, it is easy to see that a generation ago the demonstration here attempted could not have been given. Even five years ago some of the most interesting and cogent of our arguments would as yet have been lacking. The interest ...
58. The Photosphere: Is It the Top or the Bottom of the Phenomenon We Call the Sun? [Journals] [Kronos]
... as is almost universally accepted, the Sun is a thermonuclear engine whose primary concern on the outside is the radiation of excess energy liberated from matter deep in its core, observations of the visible regions, particularly the brilliantly luminous shell that masks the interior, ought to suggest as much. We have no reason to suspect that nature in the physical universe goes out of its way to camouflage its activities. Suppose, then, that we put aside our preconceptions of whatever may be happening within the Sun and look to the visible evidence. As we emerge from the unseeable depths into the light of the solar atmosphere, the first region we come to is the photosphere - a white-hot ...
59. Plasma Scalability [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon Volume VI, Number 6 Home | Issue Contents Forum Plasma Scalability Anthony L. Peratt from the University of California, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Plasma Physics Group, Thermonuclear Applications Group, writes: The previous issue of Aeon (Volume VI, Number 5) contains a most informative and insightful article entitled "Prelude to Creation" by Dwardu Cardona. While one can hardly argue with the logical sequence of information presented, I see a need to elucidate on the topic of plasma scaling. Cardona cites a possible pitfall raised by S. W. Carey who states that a small correction (to the scaling) may become significant, even when the length or ...

... of 22 essays contained in an Anthology presented to Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky on December 5, 1975, in honor of Dr. Velikovsky and the 25th anniversary of Worlds in Collision; it is our hope to publish the Anthology in its entirety - The Ed.) The Greeks divided reality into being and becoming. Both being and becoming were physical states. States of becoming were visible; they resulted from human sensation. States of being were invisible to man and could only be known in a fragmentary way from inference. Physical things grew and developed (from out of being) into becoming, and then they corrupted and returned to being. This was an economy ruled by physical ...
