252. No title [Mythopedia Website]
... www.mythopedia.info MYTHOPEDIA Marinus Anthony van der Sluijs, M. A. introducing plasma mythology studied comparative Indo-European linguistics and Semitic languages at Leiden University, The Netherlands view my guestbook sign my guestbook “Could the prehistoric sky have been much more active than now?” visit also my personal homepage Mark Bailey, astronomer at the Armagh Observatory, Northern Ireland A large segment of the world s repository of myths, rituals and early cosmologies reflects an episode in time when the sky looked more turbulent and alive than it does today. Extreme auroral events prevailed, likely caused by a disturbance of the geomagnetic field and an excessive influx of cometary debris that also precipitated an enhanced zodiacal light. The spectacular lively shapes caused by the instabilities in the plasma were remembered by the ancients as gods, ancestors or dragons, whose mysterious deeds in the celestial world constituted the destruction and creation of worlds. This is the thrust of a fresh approach to world mythology that has gained increasing momentum for some time and has recently been powerfully reinforced by experiments conducted in plasma ...

... convert them, and delay them until they were winded and docile, and then to release them in forms benevolent to life on Earth. But this need not mean that similar results were beyond the reach of technology. With the process scaled down to manageable size, why shouldn't controlled fusion become a tool of man? The energy released in the conversion of hydrogen- so abundant in the seas of Earth- to helium- a useful and valuable element- could power the electric generators that man never seemed to have enough of. Plasma physics became the promised land where all this would come to pass. In a remarkably short time thousands of young people with advanced degrees in plasma physics and electrical engineering were streaming from campuses of higher learning, primed and eager to get on with the business of harnessing fusion energy. These enthusiasts disappeared into research laboratories and were seldom heard from again. The fusion reaction, so straightforward in theory, refused to be tamed. Although the uranium-fission bomb of 1945 rather quickly led to a practical, controlled-fission device for the production of ...

The presence of X-rays both outside and inside Saturn's rings show that current is being transferred across the rings.

Unfortunately the story is misunderstood because the "fire of the gods" was electrical. The similarity of an electric discharge to fire lies in the fact that both are a plasma. However, an electrical discharge in a plasma may be invisible, unlike most flames. There is a plasma discharge mode known as a "dark discharge". It may be felt as a wind, or movement of particles in the direction ...

On the left is the comet nucleus and on the right a composite of the nucleus and a longer exposure highlighting the comet's jets. According to a recent press release, project scientists expected "a dirty, black, fluffy snowball" with a couple of jets that would be "dispersed into a halo". Instead they found more than two dozen jets that "remained intact "-they did not disperse in the fashion of a gas in a vacuum. Some of the jets emanated from the dark unheated side of the comet-an anomaly no one had expected. Chunks of the comet, some as big as bullets, blasted the spacecraft as it crossed ...

Electric Universe proponents claim that solar radiation energy production is external not internal. This is one way of clarifying the difference in approach and merit, between the prevailing gravity-only cosmology versus plasma cosmology. What's inside the sun? Scientists do not know and can only theorize, but we have significant clues that prevailing theories are misguided. Major phenomena such as pulsation and periodicity, sunspots and sunspot cycles, variable solar wind, scant neutrino emission, polarity reversal, temperature increase with altitude, slower velocity of an internal shell, increasing rotation rate from poles to equatorial region, non-convective surface features, the toroid hovering over the equator, and the plasma plume being ejected from the poles are just not expected from the internal nuclear furnace model. Some further examples of features that cause ...

The theory of gravitational lensing makes sense of images of distant quasars around nearby galaxies...until curious minds begin to doubt it. This image from the Hubble Space Telescope shows five bright spots. Curious minds want to know: What is it? Without a theory, the image is only bright spots. So curious minds make (in the sense of the Greek root “poiein”, from which “poetry” derives) a theory.... (See the essay “What is Actually the Case” at http://www.kronia.com/thoth/thoVII05.txt) Analysis of the light from the four outside bright spots shows a high redshift (designated by “z”) of 1.73. The light from the ...

(Witness plates thin layers of some material are placed in the path of laboratory discharges. A discharge strikes the plate and burns in a record of the discharge channel s shape.) Laboratory experiments and computer simulations have shown that such discharges often filament into 56 separate channels around the edge of the overall channel. These filaments then usually combine in pairs to form 28 larger filaments. If the discharge persists, other forms evolve in the channel. The shape of this crater suggests that the thunderbolt that formed it quenched shortly after evolving into the 28 filaments: The lower right quadrant, where the “bays” around ...

... be fully understood. Unfortunately, Cook's eyesight was fading badly when the book was being written, so there are more printing errors than normal to be negotiated. Then there is also the matter of the author's unusual mix of strongly-held beliefs (he is a Mormon and a convinced creationist), yet he also has a formidable scientific background, based largely on a lifetime's work on high explosives, which has brought him into contact with not only the world of rocks and mines where they are used but also the frontiers of chemistry and plasma physics. (He is particularly proud of his Nitro-Nobel Gold Medallion, awarded in 1968 for work on slurry explosives.) Add to this an obvious love of a good argument and an unwillingness to suffer those he sees as fools gladly and no one is guaranteed a smooth ride. Atheists like me will not be happy with his unashamed creationism, yet I suspect that few in the creationist camp will be totally comfortable either as he argues for his own particular view (and timetable) of creation and pursues ideas about fundamental cosmology ...

In the famous lantern procession celebrated by Chinese people on the 15th of the first month, the red sphere precedes the dragon. This sphere is called huoh chuh, "fire pearl". Shown here is a Buddhist gong-hanger produced in 18th- or 19th-century Korea. The flames that erupt from the pearl in some representations parallel the flames exhaled by dragons in other traditions. But what does the red sphere signify? And where does the image of the dragon itself come from? Scholars agree that the pearl is celestial. But does it signify the moon, as some ...
