171. Thoth Vol S I-III, INCLUDING 66 ISSUES) [Journals] [Thoth]
... have the Global Surveyor providing high-resolution images of planet-wide scarring on Mars, including the colossal Valles Marineris showing all of the markers predicted by the electrical model of a discharge scar; the Soho satellite inspiring one report after another on the "mysterious" electrical forces of the Sun; while also confirming the "impossible" filamentary structure of a comet-like plasma tail of Venus reaching almost to the Earth; the Galileo probe revealing the intricate network of electrical-discharge channels on Jupiter's moon Europa-and of course the imminent Valentine's Day encounter of the Near-Earth Asteroid Rendezvous Mission with the asteroid Eros. As you can imagine, NASA expects to confirm that Eros has been subjected to continuous impacts over a billion years and ...
172. Some Additional Comments On Tektites [Journals] [Kronos]
... entirely different direction, has come to much the same conclusion; he deserves full credit for bringing the idea to light.) A turning point in tektite research was a celebrated experiment in which Chapman demonstrated that peculiar, button-like forms (flanges) commonly displayed by Australian tektites could be duplicated with remarkable precision by immersing cold glassy spheres in a plasma jet from an electric-arc device. Aerodynamicist Chapman, engaged in research on re-entry shielding for manned spacecraft, picked up on the aerodynamic implications of his accomplishment. He assumed that the physical conditions of his experiment merely simulated natural phenomena involved in tektite sculpturing, in that they provided rapid heating and high-velocity gases to shape glass melted from the leading ...
173. The Sky Goddess Nut [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... into the temple of Hathor at Dendara. The temple is represented by the boxed head of Hathor, between two tree-covered desert mountains. Peratt Instabilities Are the "morning sun's rays" the same as the "Chain of Arrows" motif (see page 19). Could they also be Peratt Instabilities: .. . pictures of extremely powerful plasma discharges .. . as the current is pumped up, the stringy things [Birkland currents] .. . grow saw-toothed edges and make a tumultuous noise. Then the sawteeth develop into strings of triangles, ladder shapes, and stacks of donuts. (See also Internet Digest 2000:1 , Plasma Discharges in Rock Art, page ...
174. Our Universe: Unlocking its Mysteries [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... ideal environment for life on Earth, and there were no seasons. This was the Golden Age, the end of which was Doomsday, caused by the breakup of the Earth-Saturn system. Critics of the "Saturn Theory" suggest that there is no mechanism that could circularise the planets' orbits. Annis says that Donald Scott points out that plasma physics could help here, electrical attraction and repulsion could be the answer, which become effective when their plasma sheaths overlap. Annis mentions that dinosaurs would be impossible in today's gravity, and is the subject of a talk to be given later by Ted Holden. And Red Shifts, the lynch pin" of modern cosmology which is assumed ...
175. Seeing Red: Book Review [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... [Seeing Red, p. 105]. Arp's discoveries are the most important in astronomy since the invention of the telescope. He has developed a map of the visible universe that makes good sense and shows once again the penchant for Nature to repeat patterns. This is a feature also of the Electric Universe model, where electrical discharges in plasma exhibit an organizing principle that shapes galaxies. When combined with the plasma focus phenomenon we have an explanation for active galactic nuclei and the birth of quasars. Quantised galactic and stellar redshift is simply explained by Sansbury's new classical physics model of gravity as a near instantaneous electrostatic dipolar force. In fact, it would have been embarrassing if quantum ...
176. NASA Astrophysics Data System Abstracts [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... the Aboriginal religions. This suggests that the initiates may be protecting the meaning of the "abstract" symbols as secrets of the religion. These suggestive associates and alignments dervere more careful study and position surveys. Cosmology - Myth or science?Hannes Alfven, (Royal Inst. of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden), in IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science (ISSN 0093-3813), vol. 20, no. 6, p. 590-600. A critical examination of the history of cosmology is presented, and ideas that lay the foundation for the plasma universe are introduced. Pre-Galilean cosmologies, mathematical myths, the limitations of Newtonian theory, science and old and new myths, special relativity ...
177. Thoth Vol V, No 2: Jan 31, 2001 [Journals] [Thoth]
... HR diagram toward the left. In so doing we are moving in the direction of increasing current density at the star's surface. RED AND BROWN DWARFS: The first region on the lower right of the diagram is where the current density has such a low value that double layers (DLs) (photospheric granules) are not needed by the plasma surrounding the (anode) star. This is the region of the brown and red "dwarfs" and giant gas planets. The plasma that constitutes the star is in its "normal glow" range - or perhaps, in the case of a large gas planet, the "dark current" range. As we progress leftward and ...
178. The Organization of the Solar System, Part II: A Galactic Capture Hypothesis [Journals] [Aeon]
... this contention. The tentative model we have offered, then, must be considered to have at least one unresolved problem, the presence of the Saturnian satellites. The Radiance of the Sun In our hypothesis, when the Sun captured the planets, it also accepted another package, any tides which those planets might induce and produce in the Sun's plasma. Today, nobody gives any thought to the tides which Jupiter induces in the Earth. Jupiter generates an Earth crustal tide of about .000018 inch. The Sun generates an Earth crustal tide of about 1.4 inches. The Moon generates a crustal tide averaging 3.1 inches. Practically speaking, Jupiter-induced tides are of no ...
179. Cosmic and Terrestrial Lightning [Books] [de Grazia books]
... until the arc flashes had quite disappeared, the gaseous medium had been quite dissipated, and the Earth drifted out of its binary-locked, conjunctive orbit with Jupiter would the cosmic lightning cease to threaten the Earth with a bolt from the blue. Replacing the binary current and magnetic gas tube were two contemporary phenomena: the solar winds and the space plasma. The solar winds are not a current, but are unfocussed particle flows and blasts. They diffuse into space rather than concentrate upon the planets. Earth receives only a very small fraction of the solar radiance. The space plasma that surrounds the planets is composed of dissociated ionized atoms that generally do not assemble in electrical charges [14 ...
180. Editorial [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... the 20th century. The last 25 years has brought us thousands of full colour images of our Solar System and beyond. Everywhere we look, from the pitted moons of Mars, to the scarred satellites of Saturn, catastrophism is evident. And more recently, stunning images of our Sun and dozens of galaxies, show the unmistakable features of plasmas in an "Electric Universe". Curiously, plasma images also find their way into mythological imagery (see the recent Portland conference report, Our Violent Solar System, page 23). Perhaps we are a step closer to sparking the public imagination. Bigger is better This issue of Internet Digest is 30% larger than usual, so ...
