101. The Mechanism Of Evolution. Ch.15 Cataclysmic Evolution (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... Weismann could show that acquired traits are not inheritable. Actually, he did not prove that much: the loss of tails by cutting is not a habit or trait acquired through usage or need. It was Weismann who really disproved Darwin's pangenesis theory, not Lamarck, but he properly stressed that the carriers of heriditary traits are in the germ plasma, or in spermatozoa and ova; the soma, or the body, is created in each successive generation by the germs plasma, and only changes in the plasma are inheritable. The chance variations of Darwin are such changes in the germ plasma and are therefore inherited; the response of the body to external agents would not create inheritable ...
102. The Critics and Stellar Energy [Journals] [SIS Review]
... much too high. Juergens arrived (ten years ago) at a current of 1015A by assuming that only protons follow the solar wind outwards from the sun, while the velocity of electrons is negligible. As we know today, protons and electrons travel in the same direction, although some difference in velocity may exist, giving rise to a plasma current. It should he noted that in most of the literature on the solar system, the net electric current is assumed to be zero everywhere is the plasma. However, the theoretical results of conventional astrophysics are not so impressive that we should accept everything that is common usage. When Nobel laureate Alfvén rejected what he called "the ...
103. Year Two Thousand and One [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... expected or predicted under the model. Our claim, of course, is that all of archetypal mythology arose from the same core experiences of the human race and that substratum of ancient memories is highly unified. Scholarly and Scientific Outreach. Perhaps our greatest progress over the past year resulted from liaison with such distinguished experts as astronomer Halton Arp, plasma cosmologist Tony Peratt, and geologist Robert Schoch. Our plan is to expand and accelerate such liaison in the coming months as we look ahead to the July world conference. In this regard, we will welcome suggestions from readers. We are seeking to identify uniquely open-minded researchers with the highest qualifications in these areas of interest: cosmology, ...
104. Antiquated Textbooks: Redesigning the Solar System [Journals] [Aeon]
... , only a few days before his death, when he learned that the planet Jupiter emits radio signals - which Velikovsky himself had predicted. It was too late for Einstein to do anything about it, but not too late for those that came after him- and the textbooks, once again, had to be rewritten. Plasma Cosmology Astrophysicists now believe that 99.9 percent of the Universe is made up of plasma.  Cometary tails are now known to be composed of plasma.  Our own Solar System is encased in a magnetic bubble, known as the heliosphere, that contracts and expands "like a colossal jellyfish." [ ...

... of gravitation which emanate from the sun and the planets.² [WT] The last statement is only true if the assumption that G is constant, is true. In the electric universe model it is not. Anything that transfers charge to or from the Moon or Earth, such as coronal mass ejections or the brushing past of the plasma tail of Venus, will change G from its mean value. In a fixed G cosmology, all such fluctuations will appear inexplicable. No.22 ³The tails of comets do not obey the principle of gravitation and are repelled by the sun. There is beyond question some profound secret and mystery of nature concerned in the phenomenon of their ...

... square of the distance. Thus, in a vacuous interplanetary medium, or even in a medium of neutral atomic or molecular gases, planetary charges must give rise to electric fields detectable by their influences upon planetary motions. In an interplanetary medium consisting of ionized gas, however, things are radically different. One of the primary characteristics of a plasma has up to now received little or no attention from astronomers. This is its ability to shield itself from the electric field of any body in contact with it, or contained within it, and charged to an electric potential different from that of the plasma itself. The mechanism by which such shielding is accomplished was named the space-charge sheath ...
107. Thoth Vol II, No. 2: January 31 , 1998 [Journals] [Thoth]
... : I have a couple of comments and questions intended primarily for Wal: I finally got a break in my work load and read Lerner's __ The Big Bang Never Happened_. (I've put it off for several years because of the impression I got that it was largely a "fundamentalist atheist" tract.) The info on plasma physics was exciting, as were his ideas on cosmology and the three modes of evolution. Now I've got to read Prigogine's work on the second law of thermodynamics. (That takes me back to the question no one would discuss with me in college: How can the second law, defined only for closed systems, be assumed to ...

... stably of unobserved particles simply because a theory of invisible, super- heavy objects demands it is asking too much! Here are some of the many unstated assumptions underpinning the X-ray pulsar model: 1. It is assumed that the physics of neutral matter and ideal gases on Earth can be used to explain the operation of the glowing balls of plasma we call stars. Wal: 99.999% of the universe is made of plasma. It is not necessarily electrically neutral and does not behave like an ideal gas. 2. It is assumed that all interstellar plasma is mostly an ionized, uncharged, superconducting gas that can trap and carry magnetic fields. Wal: Plasma is ...
109. Our Electric Sun [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2001:2 (Sep 2001) Home | Issue Contents Our Electric Sun Don Scott DON SCOTT is a professor of Electrical Engineering, and became interested in the idea of an electrical sun after reading an article in Industrial Research magazine by Ralph Juergens, on plasmas; the Sun is a plasma (cloud of ionized gas), there are ionized particles (hydrogen ions) in space, but astronomers say this can't happen. But it appears that stars and galaxies tend to form strings: Birkeland currents, with stars being formed where the Z-pinch effect occurs [see "Electromagnetic collapse, problems of stability, emission of radiation and evolution of a dense ...
110. Electric Discharge as the Source of Solar Radiant Energy (Concluded) [Journals] [Kronos]
... potential should be uniform in all directions within a few light-years of the Sun (13a) On this basis we could assume that most particles of matter indigenous to this region- neutral atoms and molecules, positive ions, and electrons- move in essentially random directions. The gas comprising these particles ought to behave as a thin, weakly ionized plasma. It would follow, then, that the electrons eligible for capture by and participation in the solar discharge would be those whose random motions caused them to encounter the fringes of the electric field in the cathode drop of the discharge. The number of such electrons would be determined by the density of free electrons in space, the kinetic ...
