Michael Armstrong WORLD CONFERENCE REPORT...Walter Radtke SATURN THEORY OVERVIEW...David Talbott PLANETS, STARS AND PLASMA PHYSICS...Wallace Thornhill ARCTIC CLIMATE SHIFTS...Clark Whelton WELCOME By Michael Armstrong (firstname.lastname@example.org) Quote of the day: The idols of the pagan world are, in fact, congealed history, and will some day be intelligently studied as such. Ignatius Donnelly, "Ragnarok: The age of fire and gravel", 1883. Welcome to the kickoff issue of the THOTH catastrophics electronic newsletter published by Kronia Communications. It has been over 46 years since Immanuel Velikovsky published his revolutionary Worlds in Collision and conditions are right for a sea-change in our world view. By virtue of the space exploration efforts and the ongoing march of science and technology, there have been an overwhelming number of developments and discoveries in the various disciplines, virtually all of which ...

When we weren't available to "play catch", he would climb up on the chest of drawers and jump onto the bed. He had practiced the bureau-to-bed jump quite a lot when a couple of his friends visited. He persuaded them to climb up ...
183. Hannes Alfvén (1908-1995) [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:2 (Dec 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents Hannes Alfvén (1908-1995) public.lanl.gov/alp/plasma/people/alfven.html Prof. Hannes Alfvén The Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm Hannes Alfvén, winner of the 1970 Nobel Prize in Physics,acknowledged as one of creative and intuitive intellect's of the 20th century, died peacefully Sunday evening, April 2, 1995 in Stockholm, Sweden. He was 86 years old. In the world of specialized science, Alfvén was an enigma. Regarded as a heretic by many physicists, Alfvén made contributions to physics that are today being applied in the development of particle beam accelerators, controlled thermonuclear fusion, hypersonic flight, rocket propulsion, and the braking of reentering space vehicles. At the same time, applications of his research in space science include explanations of the Van Allen radiation belt, the reduction of the earth's magnetic field during magnetic storms, the magnetosphere (a protective plasma envelope surrounding the earth), the formation of comet tails, the formation of the solar system, ...

185. Further Comments on the Saturnian Configuration Theory (Forum) [Aeon Journal $]
... [23 Venus has no moon of its own, much less one the size of our lunar neighbor-- a satellite which constantly exercises a continuous stress on Earth's lithosphere and mantle as the two bodies, Earth and Moon, revolve monthly about a common gravitational barycenter, while Earth itself rotates daily on its own axis through this same barycenter. It's dynamically like an Olympic ham-mer-thrower who is simultaneously performing a pirouette. In the same issue of AEON, Wallace Thornhill was stated to have given the name "Birkeland current" to the plasma discharge in the polar vortex [24, a term that I can't find in my science references. (There is, though, a Birkeland-Eyde process for fixing nitrogen by means of an arc discharge of alternating current in a magnetic field, although what the relationship is on a planetary scale isn't clear from Thornhill's explanation.) I myself, however, did mention the existence of massive electrical currents in the polar vortex in my own previous work on the subject in which such twisted vortices were described. [25 These, by ...

187. On Celestial Mechanics [Pensee]
... page references. The following issue of Pensée will carry part two of the exchange between Kruskal and Juergens. This is certainly an imaginative paper and gives evidence of wide-ranging research and extensive thought on important and challenging problems. Nevertheless, I have serious misgivings about the soundness of the arguments and of the author's competence to tackle such difficult investigations. Let me make a number of points, of very varying significance, from rather minor or even trivial to severely critical. 1) The author says that the discovery of the existence of interplanetary plasma "invalidated the argument that the planets, if electrically charged, would perturb one another in most obvious ways" (Pensée, fall, 1972, p.6). Again: in a vacuous interplanetary medium... planetary charges must give rise to electric fields detectable by their influences upon planetary motions" (p. 7). I submit that the argument referred to was not a tenable one in any case, and was probably never part of what might be called received astrophysical doctrine. (I am no historian. ...

But such attempts are inevitably flawed. The wild card is the role of planetary catastrophe in the past. Mars has an atmosphere only one hundredth as dense as the Earth's. Before space probes visited it, astronomers expected it to be ten or more times thicker than it is. ESA's Mars Express orbiter has come up with a possible explanation (see illustration above). The orbiter has been measuring how much atmosphere is being removed from Mars today by solar wind interactions. The total is about 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) per second, or about 100 tons per day. That's not fast enough to have depleted Mars' atmosphere in the accepted length of Martian history, but presumably ...

One landscape feature of unfathomed importance was the notion of a twin-peaked or bifurcated mountain. The image above is a view of Parnassus, possibly the most revered mountain in ancient Greece. Ovid referred to it as Parnasosque biceps, which literally means “( and) two-headed Parnassus”. Between the twin peaks, as close as technically possible, was Delphi, celebrated as the centre of the world. The double aspect of Parnassus might have been passed over in silence were it not that countless other sacred mountains around the world were endowed with this feature. Archaeologists rarely comment on the fact that the ruins of Mycenae were located squarely in the middle ...

It was originally located in the temple of Apollo at Delphi, Greece. The travel writer, Pausanias, wrote the following about this rock: "What the Delphians call the NAVEL is made of white stone: the Delphians maintain, and Pindar writes to the same effect in one of his odes, that this is the center of the entire earth." Countless other surviving reports identify this navel-stone or Delphi as the center of the earth. But this deeply-rooted tradition raises a number of questions. Why was Delphi regarded as the center of the earth? And why did the centre ...
