211. Cosmos Without Gravitation [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... and electromagnetic circumduction act in the solar system. Sun, planets, satellites, comets are charged bodies. As charged bodies they are interdependent. The solar surface is charged negatively in relation to the charge of the earth, as the spectral lines (with the dominant red line in the spectrum of hydrogen) reveal. The sun carries a charge and rotates: it is an electromagnet. The spots of the sun are magnetic, and the filaments of hydrogen on the sun ? s surface arrange themselves as iron particles in a magnetic ... masses), and in view of the largeness of the sun, the Newtonian orbits are supposed to not deviate substantially from the Keplerian. (17) Perturbations of planets due to their reciprocal action are pronounced in repulsion as well as attraction. A perturbation displacing a planet or a satellite by a few seconds of arc must direct it from its orbit. It is assumed that the orbits of all planets and satellites did not change because of perturbations. A regulating force emanating from the primary appears to act. In the gravitational system ...
212. The Ten Points Of Sagan [Kronos $]
... sec., from which figure three quantities need to be subtracted: 1. The great rotational speed of Jupiter at the latitude of the disruptive effect --on the equator the speed is ca. 13 km/sec., and at the 20 south latitude where the Red Spot is centered, somewhat less. 2. The difference m in km/sec. between the present --resultant --rotational speed of Jupiter and the speed that it had before fission (the conservation of angular momentum requires that Jupiter slowed its rotation upon ejecting Venus) ... for the high temperature of the surface of Venus", but he adds, "this is not his argument." In Worlds in Collision, the "natal heat of Venus" is, in fact, mentioned before other causes of the high temperature of the planet as claimed by me a decade before it was found (the section "The Thermal Balance of Venus"). It is difficult to see what makes this pro-argument into a counter-argument, even if I had not spoken of the natal heat of the protoplanet. ...
213. Thoth Vol. V, No 6 May 31, 2001 [Thoth Website]
... on the limb, it would be only slightly larger than a typical Ionian plume, but the image does not reveal whether the source is actually at the limb or beyond it, out of view. A distinctive feature in Galileo images since 1997 has been a giant red ring of Pele plume deposits about 1,400 kilometers (870 miles) in diameter. The Pele ring is seen again in one of the new Galileo images, lower left. When the new Galileo images were returned this month, scientists were astonished to see ... , in the Timaeus, noted the change in the movements of celestial bodies in connection with world-destroying disaster. And he ascribed the great conflagration of Phaeton's fall to a shift in the motions of celestial bodies. More than one source reports the transformation of Phaeton into a planet (the "Morning Star") in our now-orderly solar system. Similarly, ancient Persian, Taoist, Chinese, Mesoamerican and other sources, gathered by Velikovsky, declare PLANETARY motions to be the source of the great cataclysms that punctuated world history, causing the ...
214. Thoth Vol. V, No 2 Jan 31, 2001 [Thoth Website]
... Halton Arp's intrinsic redshift universe, high redshift quasars and low redshift galaxies are clustered together in family groups. The high redshift objects are associated with and ejected from low redshift active galaxies. Alignment is expected, even predicted-- no fudge factor involved. In _Seeing Red_, Arp shows that most quasars are distributed in a 20 degree cone from the spin axis of active galaxies. Galaxy clusters and individual galaxies follow a similar pattern, with a 35 degree ejection cone. Also in _Seeing Red_, Arp devotes an entire ... plasma surrounding the (anode) star. This is the region of the brown and red "dwarfs" and giant gas planets. The plasma that constitutes the star is in its "normal glow" range- or perhaps, in the case of a large gas planet, the "dark current" range. As we progress leftward and steeply upward, we enter the range where some arc tufting becomes necessary to sustain the star's electrical discharge. The orbiting X-ray telescope, Chandra, recently discovered an X- ray flare being emitted ...
215. Tisserand and a Trojan to the Rescue [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... the Catastrophic Era involving all the planets except Mercury and Pluto, for a cost of between $100,000 and $500,000. The purpose is to provide insight on ten issues which he lists (p. 96). This venture is a blatant red herring whose only purpose is to serve as a decoy to deflect attention from the fact that in 17 years he and his brain trust have not really solved any of the dynamical problems implied by the ostensible orbits in the Catastrophic Era. At the very least the ... as much explanatory power as fairies and spirits, totally devoid of quantitative support. Just as one does not need a Ph.D. in physics nor a grant from the National Science Foundation to know the fate of Humpty Dumpty, neither does one need such to understand that planet Mars cannot have performed the magic 2:1 resonance with Earth prior to 701 B.C. as Patten insists. My prefatory quote from Black Athena was completely lost on Patten and Hatch: "The fact that phenomena can be easily imagined has nothing to do with ...
216. Venus Hothouse - The Other Theory [SIS C&C Review $]
... would be astonishing in view of large scale volcanic activity through forced convection, sending literally cubic miles of billowing ash into the atmosphere, unless an equally extraordinary electrostatic precipitation and separation were simultaneously taking place. It may be that our instrumentation cannot differentiate particulates in the searing red murk of an electrically charged atmosphere, and merely give an indication of strange "chemical fires" burning in the lower levels. Or else, the hot, dense carbon dioxide may effect a veritable solution of the dust loading, to where for all intents and ... " as an explanation of the temperature of Venus, there are powerful arguments for a Velikovskian alternative. UNBEKNOWNST TO MANY PEOPLE, among whom are quite a few in the technical community, there are two diametrically competing theories to explain the seemingly anomalous high heat of the planet Venus. The most touted, and hence the most accepted, is the greenhouse theory first promulgated by RUPERT WILDT 40 years ago, and since elevated to an enhanced, or runaway, greenhouse by CARL E. SAGAN about 1960. Wildt postulated that Venus would ...
217. Venus An Interim Report [SIS C&C Review $]
... effect caused by conversion of momentum into heat; a number of contacts with Mars and probably also with Jupiter.... all this happened between the third and first millennia before the present era... (W in C, p. 371) Jupiter's Red Spot and the planet Venus, to scale for comparison. Image by Rosemary Burnard: The current theory of the formation of the solar system has the sun and planets forming by accretion from a rotating, discoid nebula. This theory and all variations upon it assume ... attempted below. In each case, Velikovsky's "advance claim" is followed by orthodox scientists' expectations, the space probe evidence, scientists' reactions, and a summing up. R.M.L 1. Origin of Venus "We conjectured that the comet Venus originated in the planet Jupiter..." (W in C, p. 379) "Venus experienced in quick succession its birth and expulsion under violent conditions; an existence as a comet on an ellipse which approached the sun closely; two encounters with the earth accompanied by ...
218. Spatters And Planetary Iconography [The Velikovskian $]
... Spatter-like forms decorate it, showing both the antiquity and the geographical spread of this phenomenon. Figure 79 is my depiction of Quetzalcoatl and Mictlantecuhtli, found in the Codex Borgia. Spatters abound amidst these apparitions. The original painting is in colour and the spatters appear as red ringlets lined with gold or yellow. The rest of the painting is in red and green, with spots of yellow. Quetzalcoatl's appearance amidst a sea of spatters should not be surprising. After all, in Meso-American myth, Quetzalcoatl becomes the Morning Star. For ... put in haphazardly? Are certain spatters the planets themselves, and, if so, how did they get to look that way? Figure 67 is my depiction of Heracles (Hercules) confronting Triton, another triadic god of antiquity. Heracles, usually identified with the planet Mars, wears a bespattered cloak. Figure 68 Figure 69 Figure 70 Figure 68 is my depiction of Cadmus slaying a dragon. Two evolved spatters appear below him, with a rabbit between them. The spatters resemble flowers. Cadmus' shield is intriguing; the ...
219. A Celtic Destruction Myth: 'Togail Bruidne Da Derga' [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... of these names is an old form of the word for "God," while Forgaill Manaich is the ancestor-god of the Manach, an Irish branch of the (Gaulish) Menapii. The four "Da" persons are (in the order given above) the Red God (or the god named "Red"), the Red God (again), the God of the Sky, and the Silent God. The mythic bruiden is, therefore, the house of God, a place of abundant food and perpetual feasting ... ibid., 144). Our evidence accumulates. Ingcel, the foreign [11 companion of the three brothers, now appears. He makes a horrendous picture: not only is he one-eyed and a burner, an apt image for a fiery body, comet, planet, or meteorite, launched against the earth, but he is of supernatural size, black and fearsome as well: "A man ungentle, huge, fearful, uncouth was Ingcel. A single eye in his head, as broad as an oxhide, as ...
220. The Saturn Thesis (Part 2) [Aeon Journal $]
... references would be inconceivable to the modern observer. In Egyptian representations of Akhenaton, we see the rays of the celebrated Aten as extended arms bringing the gift of life. Now the Aten, usually interpreted as the disk of the Sun, is generally represented as a red circle or orb surrounded by a turquoise or gold band, which band is frequently interpreted as either an enclosing serpent (Uraeus) or an enclosing rope (the Shen bond). Hopefully, the reader will have no difficulty recognizing our own interpretation of the disk ... the death of Julius Caesar, the poets and historians honored the emperor by drawing on that archaic tradition, proclaiming that Caesar's soul rose aloft in the form of a flaming hair-star, a comet. At the same time, however, they identified this star as the planet Venus, and this posed an interesting question to the leading experts, with Robert Schilling wondering by what conspiracy the comet motif had been merged with Venus. Well there was no conspiracy! The mythical comet and the Venus goddess were never separate, as can be ...
