11. Discussion on Wal Thornhill & Ev Cochrane's papers [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2000:1 "Proceedings of the SIS Silver Jubilee Event" Home | Issue Contents Discussion on Wal Thornhill & Ev Cochrane's papers Wal Thornhill said he was sorry he didn't bring his slide looking down the barrel of a discharging plasma focus device discharging. Birkeland currents run from the central cylindrical conductor to the outer concentric cylindrical conductor and they space themselves equally so that it looks like radiant streamers. The streamers can rotate, giving various swastika and whirling effects. The streamers follow the field lines, which in the polar configuration curve away from Venus towards Saturn. So, the appearance of Venus from Earth as a radiant flower or 8-fold star ...

Tony pointed out that his presentation was also available on the Web [in a lot more detail] at www.theUniverse.ws He kicked off the morning with an introduction ...
13. Forum: Electric Universe [Journals] [SIS Review]
... negatively charged solar wind ejected from a negatively charged Sun (p . 448). There are, to a high degree of precision, equal numbers of electrons and protons in the solar wind. It is not the electrons that are being accelerated away from the Sun but the protons. The electrons tag along to maintain quasi-neutrality of the solar plasma. Laszlo demonstrates his confused notion of neutral plasma by suggesting that it would not respond to the Earth's magnetic field. That is simply not so: a complex response to electric and magnetic fields is the primary distinction between the neutral plasma state and the three other (neutral) states of matter - solid, liquid and gas. Neither ...
14. On Cosmic Electricity [Journals] [Pensee]
... and can get oneself very confused worrying about distortions of these lines during conjunctions, if one insists on trying to understand classical celestial mechanics on that basis. Juergens' answer to my point (2 ), at the beginning of his reply to my comments, again exhibits very clearly a gross misunderstanding. He writes: "Suppose the interplanetary plasma in the vicinity of the earth has electric potential V1. Suppose also that the earth's total electric charge Q is such that Q = Q1+ Q2, where Q1 alone would invest the earth with potential V1." He then goes on to accuse me of assuming implicitly and unjustifiably that Q1 = 0. And I did assume, ...
15. The Electric Universe [Journals] [SIS Review]
... than forward from some idealised theoretical beginning. The Electric Universe takes full account of the basic electrical nature of atoms and their interactions. In conventional cosmology, it is the weaker magnetism and the almost infinitely weak force of gravity which rule the cosmos. The Electric Universe grew out of an interdisciplinary approach to science and the realisation that a new plasma cosmology and an understanding of electrical phenomena in space could illuminate work being done in comparative mythology. By using information from a wide span of human existence and knowledge, the Electric Universe can provide answers to many questions that seem unrelated. For example, records of the prehistoric sky can help unravel the recent history of the planets and the ...
16. On Celestial Mechanics [Journals] [Pensee]
... 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 ...
17. On the Convection of Electric Charge by the Rotating Earth [Journals] [Kronos]
... a glitch of such relative inconsequence as to be of questioned reality - might produce the Velikovsky effect- a glitch whose magnitude makes it apparent to nearly every inhabitant of the Earth. Qualitatively, a flare-induced gain of charge by the Earth may be understood in terms of probe theory. The Earth, as a material body immersed in the interplanetary plasma, is fully analogous to an experimental probe immersed in a laboratory plasma. And if solar flares are essentially electric discharges, as numerous investigators have suggested,(11) it is only to be expected that they will affect the electrical balance between Probe Earth and its environment. Loeb points out that localized disturbances (discharges) in a ...
18. Plasma Cosmology Comes Of Age [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon Volume VI, Number 5 Home | Issue Contents Plasma Cosmology Comes Of Age Tania ta Maria Taking his cue from heretical plasma physicists and such outcasts as Halton Arp, the theoretical physicist Brian Hills is not only questioning the current model of planet formation, but propounding an alternative model which is much in keeping with the current Saturn thesis. Hills' hypothesis, which is not actually new, is that planets are created through the ejection of plasma out of a proto-sun. Among other observational support, he points to the T-Tauri proto-stars which are currently seen to be ejecting thin "jets" of plasma with proto-planetary condensations along their length. As he points out, ...
19. Waves in Dusty Space Plasmas [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:2 (Dec 2000) Home | Issue Contents Waves in Dusty Space Plasmas www.wkap.nl/book.htm/0-7923-6232-2 Waves in Dusty Space Plasmas by Frank Verheest, Sterrenkundig Observatorium, Universiteit Gent, Belgium, Volume 245 of Astrophysics and Space Science Library. In this volume a thorough review is given of waves in dusty plasmas, a fascinating new domain combining plasmas and charged dust, two omnipresent ingredients of the Universe. Spokes and braids observed in the rings of Saturn cannot be explained by gravitation alone, but need the presence of charged dust. Other examples abound, as in zodiacal light, noctilucent clouds, comets and ...
20. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . 6, Aug. 1988, p. 405-408. Abstract: The hypothesis of Bostick (1957) and Laurence (1956) concerning the formation of barred-spiral galaxies which become coherent self-exciting homopolar generators has been recently supported by three-dimensional particle-in-cell computer simulations. Such galaxies should be able to convert an appreciable fraction of the energy from their gravitationally collapsing plasmas to coherently increasing magnetic energy via their coherent self-exciting homopolar-generator action. A simple calculation is presented here to show that the resulting mutually induced magnetic repulsions between neighboring galaxies are greater than the gravitational attractive forces between the galaxies. The observed expansion of the universe can be thus simply accounted for without recourse to the Big Bang hypothesis. Title: ...
