41. Remarks from the Portland Symposium 3-5 Jan 1997 [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... we are talking concretely about a roving seminar in which Bob will be a vital part. One of the aims of the seminar will be to take the discussion onto major campuses. Lastly, I must mention what, for me was the conference highlight. Actually, it was more than a conference highlight since it involved various discussions with the plasma physicist, Wal Thornhill beginning more than a month in advance of the event. Wal arrived in Portland from Australia in late November to help out on conference organisation, pitching his tent in our office up to the day we headed out to the conference. It gave us a splendid opportunity to compare notes, relating the historical argument of ...

44. Plasma Phenomenon in the Polar Configuration [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2001:2 (Sep 2001) Home | Issue Contents Plasma Phenomenon in the Polar Configuration DAVE TALBOTT continues his talk, this time on plasma phenomena in the Polar Configuration. But he began by talking about the Egyptian ostrich feather motif, and how it could have derived from the White Crown; this is predicted from an electrical perspective and the Polar Configuration. The colinear polar configuration has an analogue in the universe, that of Herbig-Haro objects. Dave went on to talk about the "whirling Venus", which is illustrated in ancient imagery with tentacles, Medusa's hair, and pondered whether there was a connection between tendrils/tentacles. Dave speculated ...
45. Stellar Thermonuclear Energy: A False Trail? [Journals] [Kronos]
... 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 ...
46. The Absurdity of Neutron Stars [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... . If we apply these criteria, two disciplines that share line honours for pathological or strange science are cosmology and particle physics. Here are some of the many unstated assumptions underpinning the X-ray pulsar model: It is assumed that the physics of neutral matter and ideal gases on Earth can be used to explain the operation of the glowing balls of plasma we call stars. Wal comments: 99.999% of the universe is made of plasma. It is not necessarily electrically neutral and does not behave like an ideal gas. It is assumed that all interstellar plasma is mostly an ionized, uncharged, superconducting gas that can trap and carry magnetic fields. Wal: Plasma is not ...
47. The Saturn Thesis (Part 3) [Journals] [Aeon]
... the next two sizes up the scale) will work given the depicted relationship to both Mars and Saturn. So that's one in ten. And the absolute limit with respect to possible sizes for Saturn would be the four sizes at the upper end of the scale. That's one in five. Twenty times ten times five is a thousand. Plasma discharge: a physical model for the Radiant Venus And keep in mind, this does not take into account the even larger size of Jupiter. If we include the apparent ancient know-ledge that Jupiter was the largest of the planets, a matter emphasized by Velikovsky, the odds grow worse by reducing the pos-sible sizes of Saturn that will work ...
48. Thoth Vol I, No. 17: June 30, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... " says team member Marcia Neugebauer of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. "It's a really strong signal, and there's no doubt it's real." NASA's Pioneer Venus Orbiter first found the tail in the late 1970s. Around 70,000 kilometres from the planet, the spacecraft detected bursts of hot, energetic ions, or plasma. The tail exists because ions in Venus's upper atmosphere are bombarded by the solar wind, a stream of plasma that blows out from the Sun. But now Europe's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), a project partly sponsored by NASA, has shown that the tail stretches some 45 million kilometres into space, more than 600 times ...

... J1914 + 24, and provides an explanation for its puzzling characteristics. Polarization in Gamma-Ray Bursts Produced by Pinch Discharge http://arxiv.org/abs/astro-ph/0501334 Authors: Mei Wu, Li Chen, Ti-pei Li. Journal-ref: Chin.J .Astron.Astrophys. 5 (2005) 57-64. Large-voltage and high-temperature plasma columns produced by pinch discharge can generate gamma-ray flashes with energy spectra and spectral evolution consistent with that observed in gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). The inverse Compton scattering (ICS) during the discharge process can produce high linear polarization. The calculation indicates that the observed polarization depends on the angle between the observer's line-of-sight to the GRB and the ...
50. The Thunderbolt in Myth and Symbol [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... identified the Valles Marineris on Mars as the lightning scar, wound, or disfiguring mark on the celestial warriors of mythology (the "Scarface" motif about which I've spoken elsewhere). But prior to Wal Thornhill's arrival in Portland, I didn't even know what a Birkeland Current is, and I knew nothing about the unique configurations taken by plasma discharges. Convergence of Myth and Science While I've experienced many breakthroughs over more than a quarter century, this one exceeded all others. It was the first indication that, at a level of explicit detail, a convergence of myth and science may be possible. This, then, inspired me to reconsider the mythic thunderbolt in terms far ...
