181. Vox Populi [Journals] [Aeon]
... Velikovskian style, the film lab accidentally destroyed the video. There are only about five seconds left of it. I put it on VHS. I still have the audiotape. It may, however, be in a format that is not in general use at present. Also, Fred Jueneman mentions that I had conducted the experiments re the plasma spirals at General Dynamics- "Further Comments on the Saturnian Configuration Theory." The truth is that I was working at General Dynamics when I had the reported conversation with Fred. However, I had done the plasma work at the University of Texas at Austin before joining General Dynamics. More on the Baltic Homer Victor De Mattei, ...
182. Psychoceramics [Journals] [Aeon]
... solutions to the inexhaustibly complex equations in linear programming, or nonlinear transcendental algorithmic hierarchies, or simultaneous parallel math co-processing, or- what the heck!- multiphasic psychoceramic threshold irrationality. But, as they say- GIGO. A Chaos-Plasma Alternative Astrophysicist Hannes O. Alfvén, the Swedish pioneer and Nobelist in magnetohydrodynamics- the science of electrically conductive plasmas- applied its principles to the cosmos and found that good old Maxwell's electromagnetic equations fit rather nicely in a description of the filamentary plasmas which seemingly pervade the universe. Alfvén saw little need for black holes, superstrings, and other cosmological fantasies in the organization of the universe. But even Alfvén's attempts to order and unify the microcosm with ...
183. Thoth Vol II, No. 9: May 31, 1998 [Journals] [Thoth]
... that I have not provided mathematical proof that electric arcs of sufficient power could create scars the size of Olympus Mons and Valles Marineris. And even if they could, you cannot scale up electrical scarring effects from lab to planet. There are many answers to that. To begin with, it was no less than Hannes Alfven, the pioneer plasma physicist, who pointed out the enormous scalability of plasma effects and exhorted theorists to get back in the lab to find out how things really work in space. (I plan to do that again as soon as possible). Also, if you read any recent research on arcs in plasmas you will find statements such as: " ...
184. Survival (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... ) is the displacement vector. Theoretically, H could be zero if the two right-hand terms outbalance each other completely, but this is most unlikely, especially as current density cannot be expected to be equal in all directions. Uniformly distributed currents, Alfven says, are typical of what he calls "the pseudo-plasma approach". In a real plasma, currents produce filaments or flow in thin sheets. The magnetic field around the Sun has been measured up to a solar latitude of 16 deg. north by Pioneer 11. The results were reported to confirm the existence of the current sheet.(4 ) Velikovsky's reconstruction does not depend on the validity of Juergens' solar model. ...
185. Galactic Space Charge and Stellar Energy [Journals] [SIS Review]
... in the photosphere, ought to be observed as violent, random turbulence. Individually and collectively the known features of the solar atmosphere can only be described as anomalies from the standpoint of the accepted theory of stellar energy. II The physical structure and the thermal characteristics of the Sun's atmosphere, including every known feature from the photosphere to the interplanetary plasma, find striking analogues in the features of a glow discharge (corona) from an isolated anode. This observation, however, is of no more than passing interest unless it can be shown that the Sun's energy might, after all, be supplied from the outside. Eddington argued (5 ) that without an internal source of energy ...
186. Forum [Journals] [Aeon]
... depth by Patten and Windsor. Who else has even proposed the obvious inclusion of planets as gyroscopes? Of course, planets never have had close flybys. Mr. Thornhill negates the rapid rotation of the gas giants as a result of the "big crank" proposal. He is of the opinion that deep "solid" layers beneath the plasma and gas of the Sun's exterior do not rotate as fast as the surface gasses. An external force is mentioned. If an external force is being applied, it must be shown, pointed out, and analyzed. Otherwise it is magic or wishful thinking. I believe Mr. Thornhill is suggesting that friction in the gaseous layers should ...
187. Trisms and Planetary Iconography [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... bodies appear on the upper half of the base top. On the lower half of the base top, other symbols unite in a vertical formation which resembles a Rorschach blot. Does this symbol, or apparition, represent the god Dolichenos? What forces were liberated that could create it? Figure 26, my sketch of an apparatus called a Plasma Light Machine. An electrode is located at the center of a glass sphere filled with an inert gas. The electrode serves as a source of ions attracted to the inner surface of the sphere. As they stream toward their destination, the ions emit light and illuminate their own path, which, because of deflection, has become crooked ...
188. The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part II) [Journals] [Kronos]
... , Comet Brooks II ( 1889) underwent brightening as did Biela's Comet ( 1846) and the nucleus divided while in Jupiter's realm.(22,23) The brightening is a result of the sudden charging and influx of tail material as the asteroidal comet nuclei encounter the Jovian radiation belts at high velocity, implying that velocity relative to the plasma is a factor in the charging process. With the charging process begun, the nucleus will be assured of inducing the discharge of the solar capacitor as it enters the inner solar system and therefore assures the proper development of the comet.(24) This same process helps slow comet nuclei during lunar capture and thus gives planets with large ...
189. The Polar Column: A Physical Model of Myth [Journals] [Aeon]
... of space, the central column would have tended to disintegrate and dissipate. But, since myth dictates that it soared into the heavens beyond the ken of earthbound observers, it is conjectured that a magnetohydrodynamic pinch effect kept it integral. This pinch effect is a manifestation of parallel electric currents, as found in the constriction of ionized gases or plasmas in an electric discharge tube and other rheologically distortable conductors. This effect is considered to have been a principal factor in the maintenance of the polar column's integrity, without which the constituents of the vortex would have dissipated into space. As long as a heavy current travelled through the columnar vortex between the planets, continuously replenished by the charges ...
190. Thoth Vol I, No. 21: August 11, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... the universe as electrically sterile, when the evidence that it is not was staring us in the face? In answering these questions I will show how badly science suffers from paradigm paralysis. Breaking free from old paradigms allows amazing connections to be forged between disciplines presently thought to have nothing in common. Who would have thought that mythology could illuminate plasma physics and celestial dynamics and vice-versa? And this must be the hallmark of correct paradigms - no data can be ignored or discarded when searching for the truth. Every piece must fit the puzzle. Some of the results are astounding on first meeting - for example that our Sun and all stars are giant balls of lightning - but so ...
