91. Comments on Electric Stars [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... model, any conclusions from that source must be viewed with caution. It also seems to me that there is a lack in the perfect gas theory used in the standard solar model which may have profound consequences if the "neo-classical" theory of gravity is correct in principle. That is, the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution law does not deal with electrostatic polarization of atoms/molecules due to gravity. Such electrostatic polarization occurs in a strong gravitational field because the nucleus of each atom will be displaced within the atom, slightly toward the centre of the sun. Such radial atomic polarization would create an increasing electrostatic field as you move out from the centre of the sun. That field will be ...
92. THE ROAD TO SATURN (EXCERPTS FROM AN AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL ESSAY) [Journals] [Aeon]
... A cruciform star-shape also appeared as four bright rays radiating from the central orb. Rightly or wrongly, I initially interpreted these as an atmospheric illusion. A singular beam of light also appeared to taper upward from Earth's northern horizon, connecting our humble abode to Saturn's glorious realm in the sky. All mythologies speak of this singular beam, this polar column or cosmic tree, this bond which tied heaven to Earth. Despite the apparent impossibility of the system I had managed to reconstruct, nothing perplexed me more at the time than this effulgent axis mundi. Together with the puzzle of the primeval darkness, this so-called world-axis stymied me. What could it really have been? It is ...

94. Catastrophic Theory of Mountain Uplifts (A Crustal Deformation Theory) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... "What is the source of the energy and force causing change?" The following ideas have been advanced over the years, sometimes only tentatively, other times with more conviction (alphabetically): Convection currents of magma; Differential rotation; Planetary Contraction (and crustal shortening); Planetary Expansion (and crustal stretching); Plate Tectonics; Polar wandering (and Equator bulge relocation). Each of the above theories assumes the presence of only one important planetary gravitational field, the Earth's. Of course, there is the Moon, which creates a twice-daily crustal tide of up to 3.1 inches. In addition, the Sun creates a twice-daily crustal tide of up to 1 ...

96. The Terrestrial Sea: A Critical Model of Science and Myth [Journals] [Aeon]
... of figure. All such fluctuations are dynamic means for Earth to regulate stability and maintain equilibrium. The equatorial diameter of the Earth is 26.7 miles greater than the diameter measured between the poles. The diameter of the Earth at the equator is listed at 7926.68 statute miles- one statute mile being equal to 5280 feet. The polar diameter is 7899.98 statute miles. And, for an interesting side-issue, the 20,702-ft. Andean peak of Mount Chimborazo in central Ecuador, just 2 south of the equator, is the highest mountain on the planet by virtue of its summit being the farthest distant geographical feature from the center of the Earth, or some ...
97. The Milky Way [Journals] [Aeon]
... Old and New Worlds feature a symbolic ascent to heaven by means of a pole, ladder, tree, or cord. (95) In more than one culture, the climbing pole is addressed as the "road to the sky." (96) Shamash rising over the Twin Mountain. (From a Mesoptomian seal.) The polar column as a ladder, or stairway, leading to the "sun." Note the central orb in the center of the "sun," indicating that it is not the present "sun" that is being depicted. (From a petroglyph near the San Marcos Pass in California.) As Eliade and others have documented, ...

... establish new ones. The human mind works from generalities to specifics, quickly seizing upon broad similarities. Given such tendencies, eyewitnesses to later cataclysms would automatically make mental connections between what they were seeing and the original traditions. For example, the Exodus comet-planet, standing vertically on the horizon as Velikovsky postulated, would be strangely reminiscent of the polar column associated with ancient Saturn- certainly similar enough to fulfill the symbolic expectations of tradition-oriented Israelites. So, too, any presentation of a crescent to earthly observers at that time would bring to mind the earlier Bull of Heaven tradition. Note that the ancients did not alter their view of the heavens for thousands of years- even though ...
100. The Enclosed Sun-Cross [Books]
... expect the familiar landscape to explain the usage. But wherever the mythical four rivers appear, they possess the character of an "ideal" land, in contrast to actual geography. The reason for this disparity between the mythical and terrestrial landscapes is that the four rivers flowed, not on our earth, but through the four quarters of the polar "homeland." To what aspect of Saturn's kingdom might the mythical rivers refer? For every dominant mythical theme there are corresponding signs (though this truth is still to be acknowledged by most authorities). The signs of the four rivers are the sun-cross and the enclosed sun-cross , the latter sign illuminating the former by showing that the ...
