... Wal Thornhill >> >> >> >> >> >> >> >> >> >---<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< WHAT IF By Amy Acheson In SEEING RED (pp. 58-59), Halton Arp tells this story: "In about 1951 I was choosing a Ph.D. thesis topic. I had been captivated by the early reports of Karl Seyfert's discovery of galaxies with brilliant compact cores. I was particularly intrigued with ... presented at the very conference in question, imply a principle of "conjunction"? Or how could he deny that the far-famed liaison or "marriage" of the warrior Mars and the Venus-goddess similarly implies a planetary "conjunction"? Grant the identity of god and planet; and you cannot escape the ancient memory of planets juxtaposed in the sky close to the earth. No doubt my suggestion that EVERY recurring theme involves a joining of planets will appear excessive. But the statement is literally true and would be easily challenged if false ...

... ** ** ** ** ** ** ** *** WATER ON MARS? By Wal Thornhill Planetary scientists are busy looking for evidence of water on Mars in support of plans to send robotic and, eventually, manned missions to the red planet. Water is a key ingredient in the search for signs of extraterrestrial life. Some scientists speculate that life may have once existed on Mars because a few massive channels there suggest floods of copious liquid surface water in the planet's dim past. Also, the ... physics and thermodynamics as applied to biology, because it appears that the nuclei of elements may be altered and recombined so as to produce other elements. Henry Ehrlich, author of the textbook GEOMICROBIOLOGY said "we're still at the very beginning of understanding how microbes shaped the planet." (NY Times, 10/15/96). Stephen Jay Gould has written with approval and considerable awe over such evidence in his book Full House, and cites evidence that microbes in the earth's crust and ocean live up to several miles deep ...

... and the dark, perfectly round, eye surrounded by a band of naked skin. Macaws also have long tails that are formed either of parallel feathers or overlapping ones, depending on variety. Seven-Macaw is said by some to have been a scarlet macaw-- bright red with blue or green wings, and the only macaw with a brilliant white beak. Hunahpu loses his arm to Seven-Macaw. (From Izapa Stela 25.) Compare the facial features of the macaw with Talbott's version of the primeval Saturn-in-crescent shown in the illustration on ... seems likely that both the day names and the months in calculations were picked partly for astro-nomical reasons and partly for religious reasons. Thus, the month Uo was under the patronage of the old black god of the number seven...this deity is the god of the planet Saturn..." [22 Itzamna. (From the Dresden Codex.)

264. "Heaven and Earth": Catastrophism in Hamlet [Kronos $]
... 88) Notice the unbroken chain of explicitly Velikovskian catastrophic images. What is happening is horrible, all is darkness, no one can see, loud and horrid shrieking fills the air, the atmosphere is poisoned, mountains melt and change shape, the sea has turned red, the moon has apparently altered position and may even have flipped over and the sun does not rise when it should. This is the Chorus' description of what is happening round about, on earth and in the skies, as a background to the unfolding ... were more disastrous than the Venusian and Martian ones. Because of the fact that the reconstructions of these earlier celestial dramas have not yet been published, it behooves us all to be wary of our cosmic interpretations. The most significant earlier catastrophe in Cardona's opinion involves the planet Saturn. Hamlet reflects an encumbered and dramatized version of the Saturnian catastrophes, one of the earliest that man remembers... the Saturnian experience has been the greatest "single" event which has most affected mankind through the ages- as it still continues to ...

He as adorned with a hairy tail and hair around his ankles. he carried a "wand or rod with a red ball at the end... which he slid upon the ground as he ran." (From a painting by George Catlin).

Next to Lone Man stood a third god, the Evil Spirit, who was worshipped during the O-Kee-Pa ceremony and to whom sacrifices were made. According to Maximilian, the fourth god of importance was called Rohanka-Tauihanka, who lived in the planet Venus, 'and it is he who protects mankind on the earth; for without his care the race would have been long since extinct' [6. The Mandans also worshipped the sun and most of the sacrifices were offered to cosmic bodies. 'In the moon ...

... By September debris from the impacts of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 on Jupiter had spread around the planet and the dark band around its southern hemisphere had not faded significantly by January, indicating that it may take years to settle. A new dark spot, larger than the famous red spot, was seen rotating across the planet. The black impact bruises were dark because of 'vast numbers of aerosol particles created in the explosions, perhaps from organic material in the cometary fragments..'. The unexpected lack of water may be explained by the ... are quite a few new observations and theories about our satellite. Early ideas for the origin of the Moon, such as capture of a fully formed Moon from elsewhere in the Solar System, fission from an early Earth while it was spinning very fast and a double planet hypothesis which suggests that both bodies formed together in the planetary dust cloud, gave way to a general consensus that the Moon was formed from debris flung into orbit after a collision between the Earth and another body. This idea that the Moon formed after a glancing ...

... of electromagnetic effects in celestial mechanics. B. the retrograde satellites of Jupiter should be compared as to their charges with the direct satellites. Experiments should be performed with positively and negatively charged metallic drop solutions revolving in a magnetic field. C. spectroscopic analysis of the red spot should be performed as to the presence of iron and sulphur vapors, especially over the periods of conjunction with Saturn. VI.

I wrote an article, "Venus- A Youthful Planet," and sent it to the editor of Science. I found it back in my mailbox less than 48 hours later, returned unread. I discussed the case with Hess, and he decided ...

... This purity gives the desert glass some remarkable properties.... you can heat the material to 1700 sC before it begins to melt- over 500 sC higher than other natural glasses.... It can be dropped into cold water even when it is red hot and it doesn't disintegrate... Stroll across the desert site and you'll come across great big chunks of glass- some are larger than bowling balls and weigh as much as 26 kilograms. These massive pieces of [sic dwarf lumps of natural glass found ... and forms dominating the sky in a prior epoch. Preserving the stories did not require clear skies and observational disciplines under conditions of a shifting celestial order. But maintaining planetary identifications certainly did require such disciplines. Insofar as nations did not preserve the link of god and planet, their imagination was permitted to attach any mythical name whatever to planets and stars in later times --in the same way that, still later, we attached mythical names to Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as these planets were observed with telescopes. Similarly, all of ...

... result of the Moon passing through the solar wind. Dust exonerates Roman astronomers Observer, 21.10.90 (acknowledgment: Birgit Liesching) Sirius, the Dog Star, is white today and appears to have been white in the 2nd century BC, yet Roman sources describe it as red. As there is no known astronomical process which can change a star from red to white in so short a time, it has been suggested that the Roman astronomers only viewed Sirius when low in the horizon when the Earth's atmosphere would give it a red tinge ... 24.11.90, p. 21 Just as Jupiter's Great Red spot has gone into decline, now Saturn has developed a fast growing white one. Said to be a giant storm of frozen ammonia, it first appeared in September and by November had grown to almost encircle the planet. A similar spot was first observed in 1876 and has recurred roughly every 27 to 30 years, in synchrony with the planet's orbital period, though astronomers have no idea why there should be such a synchronism. Frankly speaking New Scientist 17.11.90, p. 56 ...
