61. The Dust-up Over Ice Cores [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... at the Cambridge Conference, it was agreed between myself and the Chairman David Salkeld (to whom I am indebted for additional data), that he would write concerning Basalt Extrusion Eruptions and I would address the problem of why some eruptions are recorded by their ejecta being found in ice-cores, while others are not. Introduction The snowfall in the Polar regions (averaging 20cm per annum) of successive years becomes compacted under its own weight. The upper stratifications are easy to distinguish but as the layers become thinner at depth, these are more difficult to identify with precision, requiring an allowance of plus or minus ten years increasing with depth until the layers are too thin to distinguish at ...
62. Further Comments on the Saturnian Configuration Theory (Forum) [Journals] [Aeon]
... and Moon, revolve monthly about a common gravitational barycenter, while Earth itself rotates daily on its own axis through this same barycenter. It's dynamically like an Olympic ham-mer-thrower who is simultaneously performing a pirouette. In the same issue of AEON, Wallace Thornhill was stated to have given the name "Birkeland current" to the plasma discharge in the polar vortex  , a term that I can't find in my science references. (There is, though, a Birkeland-Eyde process for fixing nitrogen by means of an arc discharge of alternating current in a magnetic field, although what the relationship is on a planetary scale isn't clear from Thornhill's explanation.) I myself, however, ...

64. The Origin and Decay of the Earth's Geomagnetic Field [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... the late Middle Ages, compasses were in use, especially on sailing ships, in Northern Europe. Terrestrial magnetism was first proved by the English physician, William Gilbert, in 1600. The first mathematical representation or map of the terrestrial magnetic field was made by the German mathematician, Karl Gauss, in 1838. The first report of paleo-magnetic polarity reversals was made by the French geologist, P. L. Mercanton, in 1927, after his analysis of the magnetism in reversed sequence of basaltic outflows. Mercanton thereupon predicted that similar reversals of polarity would be found in basaltic outflows all around the world. And indeed so it has been found. In the past 50 years analysis ...
65. Ice Cores and Common Sense Part 1 [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History XII:1 (Jan 1990) Home | Issue Contents Ice Cores and Common Sense Part 1 Sean Mewhinney Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.- Robert Frost Except for losses from ablation, snow falling on most land in the polar regions of this planet is locked into ice caps for many thousands of years. There it sinks beneath the weight of succeeding snows, is compacted into ice, and slowly flows downhill. Preserved in the ice is a wealth of information about past climatic conditions. When Worlds in Collision was published in 1950 that climatic record was not yet accessible. Only one year earlier the ...
66. Vox Popvli [Journals] [Aeon]
... that is posited as having been reflected in the canopy, but the entire Earth as a sphere suspended in space. Ed. Jill Abery, from Sittingbourne, Kent, England, writes: I read Dwardu Cardona's critique of Milton Zysman's reflective canopy theory with much interest. Like Zysman, I have found the "kabob" model of the Polar Con-figuration a little difficult to accept, although, having found nothing better, I find it a useful model on which to hang planetary mythology. I was therefore very interested in Zysman's alternative canopy model when I first learned of it. From what I gathered from his lectures to the SIS, as also from personal conversation with him, ...
67. Discussion on Wal Thornhill & Ev Cochrane's papers [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 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, the appearance of Venus from Earth as a radiant flower or 8-fold star will only work in the polar configuration, because the magnetic field has to stem radially outwards, symmetrically, which it wouldn't do if Venus was orbiting Saturn equatorially. The appearance from the Earth would be just like ...
68. The Saturn Thesis [Journals] [Aeon]
... archetypal traits of the warrior hero. But is the powerful archetype of the warrior-hero really derived from planetary behavior, and is the source really Mars? These questions are initially answered at two levels: 1) the general accord of the earliest astronomies identifying Mars as the warrior-hero, and 2) the fact that, in the model of the polar configuration, allowing Mars to play the role of the warrior hero works. The Belvedere Apollo- Greek deity identified by Theodorakis and Cochrane as the representation of the planet Mars. AEON: There have been various modifications of your own model. Are you concerned about confusion here? Talbott: Many years ago I began to follow a simple ...
69. The Mythical History of the Comet Venus (Part I) [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon II:4 (1991) Home | Issue Contents The Mythical History of the Comet Venus (Part I)David Talbott INTRODUCTION Taking the mythically-based model of the polar configuration as a reference,(1 ) it is possible to reconstruct from ancient testimony the remarkable history of the planet Venus in prehistoric times. The integrity of this reconstruction will, in turn, lend substantial verification to the model by demonstrating that here- as in other instances previously noted- the model satisfies the requirements of a general theory: it accommodates and explains the data in a consistent way, while removing countless anomalies that have frustrated previous efforts to place ancient myths and symbols in a ...
70. The Electric Saturnian System [Journals] [Aeon]
... are outside our normal experience, a fully satisfying answer will likely elude and torment us for many years. But here is my best guess. The principle of parsimony of hypotheses suggests that we don't introduce another massive body into the system if there are no reports of it during the transition of the proto-Saturn system from a primordial configuration into a polar configuration. It seems that Talbott only requires Jupiter in his model for dynamical reasons, to provide the "counterweight" in a quasi-stable, co-linear system of planets. It only works in a stable orbit about the Sun. However, all of the Newtonian models to date do not treat the situation where proto-Saturn was being captured by the ...
