211. Thoth Vol I, No. 3: February 18, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... not the Nobel Foundation, and it was for, among other things, inventing non-dangerous "slurry explosives" which are blasting agents as powerful as nitroglycerine but not anywhere so dangerous to handle.) One of Cook's most extraordinary breakthroughs came when he discovered, by accident, and then _explained_ theoretically the remarkable phenomenon of a fully ionized plasma in the state of a liquid metal (rather than a gas, which is what all conventional plasma theorists believe is the ONLY possibility). Though he is not infallible, he is certainly a genius who has made very important discoveries. And his works on prehistory merit serious study. Cook is the author of the highly-scientific, very ...
212. Thoth Vol I, No. 4: March 2, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... In addition, as individuals we have to be aware of our human nature. Francis Bacon said "Man prefers to believe what he prefers to be true". So, I should state my preference: it is to assume what the ancients had to say about electrical phenomena involving the planets is true since it may illuminate both the new plasma cosmology and in turn - in bootstrap fashion - confirm the veracity of ancient testimony. Also, ultimately, it should be easily verifiable. So, I begin with photographs of spark machined surfaces which show circular, ringed craters with melted floors and central peaks, together with simple craters in ratios which mimic those seen on the moon. ...
213. Maya Cosmos: A Saturnian Interpretation (Part II) [Journals] [Aeon]
... kinds of mythological beings generically termed "sky serpents and dragons" which are found in the belief systems of races scattered all over the ancient world. (It should be noted that, although Jueneman did not use the term "Birkeland" in his 1988 scenario, the presence of such phenomena was explicitly referred to in his discussion of the plasma pinch effect in an interplanetary electric current.) It is the role of these three planets, and especially their linear configuration, which will be explored here. The Olmec Although our main focus will be concerned with the mythology of the Maya, a short preface about the Olmec civilization is in order. After all, "[ t ...
214. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . This very sophisticated new theory, he said, predicted and explained the anomalies that had been noted by JUERGENS and MICHELSON, and even those had puzzled Nobel prizewinners such as P. M. S. BLACKETT: it was responsible for many surprising correct predictions and no apparent false ones. The theory was best approached via a phenomenon in plasma physics, in which, under certain conditions of density and temperature, negative pressure or volumetric cohesion could occur; this conclusion was supported by experimental observations in Russia in 1978. In this theory, the solar system takes on the character of such a plasma, with electrostatic effects substituting for gravity, and Cook has demonstrated that the planets ...

... CU's Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics. They believe the presence of chlorine- an ingredient of sodium chloride, or common table salt- is related to the violent volcanic activity. THORNHILL: Now, as I have argued in an earlier post we may safely discard NASA's description of the jets on Io as "volcanoes". They are plasma jets caused by powerful electrical discharges between Jupiter and Io, impinging on Io's surface. The material being electrically "machined" from Io's surface will also undergo nuclear transformations since the plasma jets are like scaled up particle accelerators. As I have said before, the Gallilean satellites of Jupiter seem to be characterised by an abundance of water ice ...

... premise that Nature is silly enough to use the weakest force in the universe to create the outpourings of radiation that are interpreted as coming from a black hole at the centre of galaxies. When we want to create x-rays or ultraviolet light we use electricity- why should natural processes be different? The blindness of otherwise highly intelligent astronomers to the simple plasma cosmological explanation for the goings-on in active galactic nuclei is quite a phenomenon in its own right and worthy of study by those in the human sciences. It is an object lesson in the failure in practice of The Scientific Method, which requires a constant re-examination of the assumptions which underpin a theory- especially when that theory is so bizarre as ...
217. Catastrophe and Divine Fires [Books] [de Grazia books]
... clutch of balloons, are probable. The repeated Biblical references to Yahweh's sending darts of fire, jets of fire upon the enemies of Israel and even upon the Israelites when they displease him inspires one to seek the corresponding natural phenomenon, even though it would be enormously amplified in a general catastrophic encounter. Juergens has suggested plasmoids, pieces of plasma, as being formed and bombarding earth on some ancient occasions. These electrical footballs are formed of a balance of positive ions and electrons. They retain their identity and appear as luminous objects of the size of missiles. They would cause explosions near the ground and/or dig craters . It is the voltage difference that ...

... into Venus's slot. If you want it to wind up where Venus is, you HAVE to correct its velocity as it reaches Venus's orbit. [Amy replies] Again, he's taking into account only gravitational interactions, and simplifications of them at that. Astronomers don't understand why our solar system has a Bode's law configuration, but Wal Thornhill's plasma model indicates that the low eccentricities and orderly distances between planets is a function of the fact that interacting systems settle into non-interacting systems at a fairly hasty rate. He thinks that each of the planets makes a "home" for itself at the limit of the next inward planet's electrical influence. That interplanetary electrical discharges (recorded in the ...
219. Rebuttal to Ellenberger [Articles]
... atmosphere. The notion that Venus had a tail is impossible." Quote, Leroy Ellenberger, 6 September 1994 flier. So I remembered something and got out my files and made a copy of it, and the copy is of an article in the 29 March 1974 Science, and the article is "Observations at Venus Encountered by the Plasma Science Experiment on Mariner 10." The abstract concludes with the sentence, "Unusual intermittent features observed downstream of the planet (the planet Venus) indicate the presence of a comet-like tail hundreds of scale lengths in length." A scale length being a technical term that I won't attempt to define here. Then in the conclusions of ...
220. Is Gravity Necessary? (A Response to Charles Ginenthal's Electro-Gravitic Theory) [Journals] [Aeon]
... problems were faced. By 1979 I had outlined some of the parameters of a solution and distributed them to friends under the title "10-36 = 0." In this pamphlet I proposed that gravity is better explained as the result of opposing electrical repulsions than as an attraction between masses. I assumed, as Ralph Juergens had earlier [" Plasma in Interplanetary Space"], that the Sun and the planets possess net negative electrical charges. Juergens considered that an aether-like sea of cosmic charges impinged upon the Sun just as a surrounding "electron-sea" was once seen to keep conductive electrons within a wire carrying an electrical current. Juergens' work led me to the extensive set of ...
