21. The Electric Universe: Slide Presentation & Notes by Wallace Thornhill [Journals] [Aeon]
... Reviewed by Amelia Acheson Thornhill's presentation offers a visual invitation to toss aside the straightjacket of paradigm paralysis and to explore the Solar System from an electric point of view. He covers an enormous range of phenomena, from subatomic particles through stellar evolution, floodlighting our understanding of the universe with insights garnered from mythical symbols, space probes, and the plasma physics lab. As an illustration, let me compare the received explanation re the tail of Halley's Comet with Thornhill's electric account, both presented in light of photographs returned by the ESA spacecraft Giotto in March, 1986. The standard theory has it that: "Comets grow tails only when they get warm enough for ice and dust to ...
22. Comparing Magnetic Fields: Neptune and Uranus [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Venus has a strong bow shock. When the solar wind intercepts the Moon, or an asteroid, it is absorbed by the surface rock. When it interacts with planets having atmospheres or magnetic fields, or [with] a planetary ionosphere, [such as Venus']...a shock front forms which deflects the solar wind plasma around the obstacle, slows it down and heats it. Observations at Venus show that an ionosphere can be an efficient deflector of the solar wind and, here too, a strong bow shock is formed. (13) Russell indicates that "[ t ]he Venus bow shock was detected on the Venera 4 and 6 and Mariner ...
23. The Electric Universe CD by Wallace Thornhill [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... Feb 15, 1999 Wallace Thornhill's CD offers a visual invitation to toss aside the straightjacket of paradigm paralysis and explore the universe from an electric point of view. He covers an enormous range of phenomena, from subatomic particles through stellar and galactic evolution, floodlighting our understanding of the universe with insights garnered from mythical symbols, space probes, and plasma lab experiments. As an illustration, let me compare the received explanation with Thornhill's electric explanation for the tail of Halley's Comet, both presented in light of photographs returned by the ESA spacecraft Giotto in March, 1986. The standard theory states that "Comets grow tails only when they get warm enough for ice and dust to boil off ...
24. The Big Bang Never Happened [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... sic). Lerner mentions some particular sources that have been important to him for this book. He singles out Elaine Pagels' Adam, Eve and the Serpent and conversations with Hannes Alfven, Tony Peratt and Ilya Prigogine. Much of the earlier part of the book is concerned with a possible alternative to Big Bang Cosmology. This he calls Plasma Cosmology', largely based on the work of Hannes Alfven, a Swedish plasma physicist, who has extended his ideas from research on nuclear fusion power containment to the solar system, the galaxy and finally cosmology. This is the section that members of the SIS may well find of interest. Perhaps unfortunately from our point of view, ...

' ' Glossary of Medieval Art and Architecture www.pitt.edu/~medart/menuglossary Monstrance: Container for the Consecrated Host which has an opening through which it can be viewed.

On the face of it, comets and planets would seem to be quite different phenomena. From the earth-bound perspective of a terrestrial stargazer comets are tailed bodies blazing occasionally in ...
26. The Electric Saturnian System [Journals] [Aeon]
... the Photospher the top or the bottom of the phenome-non we call the Sun?" [5 ] The brown dwarf (which is actually red) that was proto-Saturn would have been a much smaller anode than our present Sun. When the size of an anode is reduced, the anode sheath must grow large to reach farther into the primary plasma in search of collectible electrons. This process is self-limiting because the electric field within the sheath grows stronger as the sheath expands. Electrons caught in that field are accelerated to ever-greater energies until they are able to ionize particles they collide with, and the sheath takes on a uniform glow- the skin-like anode glow. The "anode dark ...
27. Hannes Alfvén (1908-1995) [Journals] [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 ...
28. Evidence for the Extreme Youth of Venus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... for any hypothesis, and it fits the observations better than theories based on gravitational collapse and trapped magnetic fields. Of course, it needs a lot more detailed work by physicists to determine the precise behaviour of matter under extremely high pressures in a gravitational field. Also, we need an improved understanding of the nature of electrical discharges in the plasma of space. A plasma is like a gas but, instead of being composed of neutral atoms, it consists of free ionised atoms and electrons in roughly equal numbers. It is a better conductor than any metal. Space plasmas exhibit a high degree of complexity and inhomogeneity, usually in the form of filamentary structures. Examples are auroral ...
29. Testing Juergens' 'electric sun' theory [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Anomalous Cosmic Rays (ACRs). These are cosmic rays enriched in nitrogen, oxygen and helium - elements that will be predominantly neutral in interstellar space. It is now believed that these elements are ionized and accelerated by the shock at the heliopause. I am somewhat sceptical of explanations which rely on magnetic field compression at shock-fronts' in a plasma. Such theories, together with magnetic field reconnection' events, perpetuate the myth that magnetic fields can be frozen into a plasma and that a mathematical necessity of a purely magnetic/mechanical model must have physical meaning. In my opinion, following Ralph Juergens, the correct model must involve electric currents in space plasmas - then observed magnetic ...
30. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the Ancient Near East becomes sufficiently well established that the orthodox view cannot be questioned. Velikovsky would have disagreed, he carried his revisionism down into the Late Period in Ancient Egyptian history, and considered that the history of the Ancient Near East only becomes "fixed" with the conquests of Alexander the Great in the 4th century BCE. Introducing Plasma Mythology'http://mythopedia.info/ 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 ...
