351. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... authors desire to make a real contribution to the Velikovskian literature, there are subjects in more urgent need of attention than the proliferation of theories about the origin of proto-Venus. No less than five in the physical sciences come to mind: (1 ) the circularisation of planetary orbits in a Velikovskian time-frame, (2 ) the elucidation of Cook's plasma theory of gravity propounded by Bass at Glasgow (3 ) a discussion of why the orbits of the planets have not assumed a new Bode-type configuration since the demise of the planet posited by Ovenden whose former presence at the asteroid belt is reflected in the present orbits, (4 ) definition of third-body trajectories that would not loose the Moon ...
352. The Anomalous Condition of Venus and the Origin of the Solar System [Journals] [SIS Review]
... affecting the composition and masses of the planets according to the elemental abundances in the nebula in the conventionally recognised way. Yet the salient fact is that the resulting axial spins of the planets would be retrograde ab initio, a tendency concordant with the retrograde torque of the solar tides. This is clearly not the case. The alternative is a plasma cloud magnetically coupled to the central mass (proto-Sun) on the lines proposed by Hannes Alfvén [4 ] . Such a cloud would have solid rotation, revolving like a wheel, so that the linear orbital velocities of its parts would be directly proportional to r. A high initial density could probably have a similar, or at least ...

... are related directly to the Sun's sunspot activity and are likely to increase dramatically in four years' time when the next cycle reaches its peak. At these times coronal holes appear near the Sun's poles, magnetic field lines shoot vertically out into space and the solar wind doubles its normal speed. Sometimes this results in a giant blob of magnetised plasma of enormous energy approaching Earth and distributing its power into our magnetosphere, disrupting radio communications, causing spectacular auroras and affecting the weather. Normally the solar wind moves more slowly round the Sun's equator, changing abruptly at high latitudes to almost double the speed. The boundary oscillates and some scientists claim to have found a hidden periodicity in the ...

... of people love to tune in to the VLF sounds made by the various electrical goings-on around Earth. Another reckon they can predict earthquakes from changes in VHF reception. Ball lightning explained New Scientist 26.9 .98, p. 6 Early explanations for ball lightning were dismissed (often along with the phenomenon itself) because a sphere of plasma should theoretically explode almost instantly after it forms. Now it is suggested that lightning strikes might create horizontal and vertical magnetic fields which loop together and form a plasma-containing mesh for up to 15 seconds. Effective EM fields New Scientist 18.7 .98, p. 6, 25.4 .98, p. 21, Science ...

... to myths which fit the Polar Configuration. David does entertain the idea of another bright cosmic body' over and above a mere comet and it is highly likely, in fact, that abnormal substances could either fall to Earth or be created on it during a Configuration period' when Earth may have been connected to other planets by highly charged plasma tubes. In the myths connecting Solomon to Shamir, the details only serve to reinforce the point which Birgit Liesching made in C&CR 1998:1 , that Solomon is a mythological character who relates more to the Saturn or Polar Configuration than to real history. That Solomon contacted god on top of a mountain, just like Moses ...

... those emitting X-rays, contradicting previous thinking. Neutron stars often have strong magnetic fields and are now thought to have bubbles of energetic X-rays bursting at incredible speed from their polar caps. The hot, electric winds of Jupiter New York Times 29.5 .99, New Scientist 7.8 .99, pp. 26-31 An electrically charged plasma sheet rotates around Jupiter, coupled to the rotation of the planet, it is suggested, by a kind of electromagnetic friction. Ion winds known as electrojets, moving at thousands of miles per hour, blow in oval patterns where the polar auroras meet Jupiter's upper atmosphere. Friction between these winds and the rest of the atmosphere may explain ...

... up the microcosmic world that ubiquitously pervade the universe. He credits Empedocles of Acraga (Agrigentum) with the concept of earth, water, air, and fire as representative of particles which combine to make up all manner of matter, although others have equated such thought with the respective states of matter: solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. The demonstration of a suspected hidden state of matter, the aether (vacuum), had to wait for some centuries despite a glimmer of an idea by Anaximander of Miletus in the early 6th century bce describing a boundless condition he called apeiron- the Greek equivalent of an all-pervasive Hindu akasa, a primal element de- scribed in ...
358. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... plenty of modern reports of sounds heard from both meteors and auroras. It is suggested that it must be due to electromagnetic radiation in the form of very low frequency radio waves which are turned into sound by a variety of transducers such as wires, pine needles or even the listener's dry hair. The radio waves could be produced by turbulent plasmas. Lightning Causes Earthquakes New Scientist 30.6 .01 pp. 34-37 Electromagnetic pulses equivalent to a single lightning flash can release seismic energy from the ground up to a million times greater in earthquake prone regions. Oil and Electricity Science Frontiers 135, May-June 2001, p. 3 Tornados may be formed as thunderstorms pass over positively charged ...

... a pinch of salt. Michael G. Reade Checkendon, Oxfordshire Electrics and dynamics I was pleased to see my photograph of a high voltage electrical discharge showing a group of filaments published (C &CR 2001:2 , p. 39). Astronomers still maintain that the material normally' ejected from the Sun as the solar wind is plasma, consisting of equal positive and negative charged particles, except for more violent events when a great mass of positive material is ejected from the Sun and other stars which NASA now describes as a proton storm. Astronomical observations of filaments clearly indicate that electrical discharges are of very frequent and ubiquitous occurences, both of negative and of positive particles ...
360. Commemoration Of The 2300bc Event [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . Many witnesses also report hearing hissing, humming, swishing or crackling sounds simultaneously with seeing the bolide, without any time lapse for sound travel. A mechanism has been proposed by which the enormous energy in the bolide's wake is converted to electromagnetic radiation at high audio frequencies (ELF/VLF) by magnetic flux trapped in the turbulent wake plasma. The electromagnetic radiation transmits the sounds through the atmosphere at the speed of light. Controversy about this was settled by measurement of the signals in 1994 by Brown. Wire, wire mesh and even grass and frizzy hair can be set into motion by the electronic signals, converting them into sounds. Interestingly, this type of signal was ...
