51. Thoth Vol III, No. 4: Feb 15, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... review by Amy Acheson 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 ...
52. New Physics Supports Planetary Catastrophism [Journals] [SIS Review]
... rotation until phase-locked with the Sun. Even more critical is the speed of light delay in electromagnetic fields which would have the Earth, for example, always being tugged toward a point in space where the Sun was eight minutes ago. This would cause obvious precession of the Earth's aphelion. We know now that space is filled with a rarefied plasma, which is like a gas in which many of the atoms have lost their electrical neutrality by having an electron or two knocked off. The result is that space is full of practically equal numbers of positive and negative charges, their movement subject to electric and magnetic fields and with a minuscule influence due to radiation pressure and gravity. ...
53. Conference: Our Violent Solar System [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... that added much to the "electrical scarring" scenario. A highlight from this book is a photo taken 30 km from Meteor Crater in Arizona. I swear it's like looking at the moon. There is a sinuous rille, complete with a hairpin bend, wrapped around a cluster of small craters. While shopping in Portland Wal found a plasma demonstration at an electronics store. He videotaped the demonstration. It's amazing how much the stopped frame of a charge shooting across a conducting sphere looks like the surface of Jupiter's moon, Europa. Anthony Peratt was a wonder. He, too, was unaware of the work of planetary catastrophists until this weekend. But he's spent his career ...
54. The Electromagnetic Circularization of Planetary Orbits [Journals] [Kronos]
... therefore, "objects" which contain both negative and positive charges (i .e ., electrons and positive ions or "holes") with a difference in net flow between them (i .e ., within which there is a net electric current flow). With conductors carrying an electric current and with certain electric flows within plasma fields (we discuss this latter case in more detail below), that is easy to envision. But "magnetized objects" likewise are such, insofar as they are objects, in whose local crystalline structures the atoms are so aligned, that orbital electron and "hole" motions present net overall non-zero vector summations of each. On ...
55. The Opening of The Mouth Ritual - Part II [Journals] [Aeon]
... again, and reigned eternally in heaven. They believed that they would inherit eternal life, just as he had done, provided that what was done for him by the gods was done for them..."  Fig. 6 Osiris as the Djed pillar. Fig. 7 Simplified Ladder/Backbone. The same columnar plasma structure could have produced both forms, by alternating the opaqueness or colour of either the rungs' or spaces. ' The ancient texts are replete with re-ferences to the back-bone and jaw-bones of Osiris, the god, and Osiris, the de-ceased pharaoh. Why is this so? It is simply that there were, at one time, ...
56. Of the Moon and Mars, Part 2 [Journals] [Pensee]
... Michelson's figure is derived from Bailey's on the assumption that the specific charges- total charges divided by total masses- of all bodies in the solar system might be alike. The same assumption would imply total charges of about 1012 and 1011 coulombs for Mars and the Moon, respectively. However, as pointed out elsewhere (65), the ubiquitous interplanetary plasma can be expected to equalize surface potentials rather than specific charges; except during near-collision episodes, and perhaps even then to large degree, the potentials of all the planets (or at least the inner planets of the system) should be pretty much alike and equal to that of the Sun. Nor need one put too much stress on ...
57. The Saturn Theory [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , 1998, pp. 49-64. 28. See the discussion in E. Cochrane, Martian Meteorites in Ancient Myth and Modern Science', Aeon 4:2 , 1995, pp. 57-73. Discussion on Wal Thornhill & Ev Cochrane's papers Wal Thornhill said he was sorry he didn't bring his slide looking down the barrel of a discharging plasma focus device discharging. Birkeland currents run from the central cylindrical conductor to the outer concentric cylindrical conductor and they space themselves equally so that it looks like radiant streamers. The streamers can rotate, giving various swastika and whirling effects. The streamers follow the field lines, which in the polar configuration curve away from Venus towards Saturn. So ...
58. Thoth Vol III, No. 5: March 15, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... as effects of the ideal gas law, gravity/radiation-pressure equilibrium, and thermonuclear reactions. Discrepancies between observations and the predictions of theory are accounted for by adjusting the theory to fit the facts (by more detailed articulation or by ad hoc amendment) or by discounting-even ignoring-facts that don't fit, that make no sense. From the viewpoint of plasma physics, the term "sun" refers to a set of observations (not quite the same set as for established theory, and certainly with different degrees of importance attached) understood as effects of Birkeland currents, anode discharge characteristics, and driven circuits. While not denying the existence of gravity and gasses and fusion, it dismisses them ...

... in the myth of Saint George). He showed pictures of the hero with a halo, Apollo = Mars as the axle of the cosmic wheel; the plant of life, the head of the hero enclosed by a lion's mane, with an eye on his chest. The image of the owl, Venus as the owl-eyed goddess; plasma material streams stretching from Venus to Saturn in the Polar Configuration which would lead to images expressed as petal wheels, the peacock (Juno's emblem), the scallop shell (Aphrodite's), a fan, a date palm, the feathered head-dress of the warrior hero; Medusa; the Egyptian simplified image of the papyrus swamp; the pharaoh's ...
60. A Life's Work? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 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 ...
