131. Thoth Vol IV, No 4: Feb 29, 2000 [Journals] [Thoth]
... is so in their case. (Birkeland currents flow along magnetic field lines in a force-free fashion). The long-lived GRS on Jupiter may be associated with some underlying electrical inhomogeneity in the planet resulting from the catastrophic breakup of the Saturnian system. The many reports of Jovian thunderbolts attest to the probability that the giant planet may bear hidden electrical scars. Of course, the standard picture of the structure of Jupiter does not allow for a solid surface under the clouds to bear scars. But it must be remembered that the Electrical Universe requires a completely new estimation of what a "gas giant" really is. Calculations of both the density, composition and the internal heat budget will ...
132. Planetary Observations of the T'ang [Articles]
... published my article on a form that appears commonly in mythical and religious art. Labeling this form the "spatter". I've produced evidence in the article that suggests that this form might be connected with electrical forces. Here, let me present some new material. In Leonard Loeb's Electrical Coronas, the author discusses how electrical discharges penetrate or scar dielectrics placed between anode and cathode. In this discussion, Loeb describes phenomena known as Lichtenberg figures. These appear as the scars of the electrical discharges that have penetrated the dielectric. In early issues of Pensee, Ralph Juergens suggested that some of the lunar craters may have been remnant Lichtenberg figures, formed during periods of electrical discharge between ...
133. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... have some mythological evidence from Greece, recorded in the works of the late mythographer Nonnus (5th century AD), in fact a very graphic description of the attack of Typhon (identified by Velikovsky as the proto-planet Venus) on the Moon, the "missiles" hurled at her, the disruption and arrest of her movement, and the scar left on her surface by the conflicts: "Many a time he (Typhon) took a bull at rest from his rustic plowtree and shook him with a threatening hand, bellow as he would, then shot him against the Moon like another moon, and stayed her course, then rushed hissing against the goddess, checking with the ...
134. Aphrodite The Moon or Venus? (Continued) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . The Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite (VI) describes her birth in a "late" context - she rises from the sea to be greeted by the Hours (daughters of Zeus), who "brought her to the gods who welcomed her .. ." Agreed, the Moon does have a horrendous background, and has undoubtedly suffered scarring during catastrophes of the sort postulated by Velikovsky. That the goddess Selene (Moon) was attacked and scarred by the comet Typhon (Venus) was known to the Greeks and graphically described by the poet Nonnus (40). Where is the logic, then, in demanding that the victim of such ravages must be a "heavyweight ...
135. Forum [Journals] [Aeon]
... problems with Patten and Windsor's scenario is that it fails to explain how "Little Brother" got its large entourage of planets and moons while the Sun did not. They do point out that accretion is much easier at the low relative velocities expected at distances beyond the orbit of Neptune, but then the difficulty arises in explaining the composition and scarring of the highly condensed terrestrial-type planets and moons. What made "Little Brother" so special that such planets could have formed around it but not around the Sun? Deep-space planetary systems that have recently been detected indicate that planets larger than Jupiter are orbiting extremely close to their central star. This creates great doubt about standard theories of formation ...
136. He Who Shines by Day [Books] [de Grazia books]
... events of her pre-Martian period. We are aware of, and shall soon understand better, how the horror of her visitations affected the human mind. But precisely because of her erratic, destructive, and self-destructive, earlier history, it is difficult, more difficult than in the case of Mars, say, to pinpoint her presence by the scars left upon her by the Love Affair. Let us look again to the song of Demodocus and see whether Hephaestus-Venus signals any possible effects of its role. Velikovsky has gathered historical, legendary, and geographical evidence to the effect that the shortened tail of the cometary proto-planet was effectively destroyed in the Mars encounters. Hephaestus trails his legs; ...

138. The Jupiter Order [Books] [de Grazia books]
... is seen less clearly in the motion of the fourth satellite, Callisto (slightly smaller than Mercury). The surface of each of these bodies is distinctive (see Smith, B.A . et al., pp934ff). Io, seemingly, is close to being molten. It lacks craters, but shows over a dozen caldera-like scars, which were likened to active volcanoes when an eruption was observed during the fly-by of the Voyager 1 spacecraft (Morabito et al.). An electrical flux-tube through which a current of millions of amperes flows between Io and Jupiter (Stone and Lane, p947) has been linked to Io's eruptions (Gold, 1979). The ...
139. Response to Critique by Leroy Ellenberger [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... question. Posture 2. On Deimos and Phobos On the advice of his support group (astronomers Slabinsky and Van Flandern) Ellenberger cites the roundness of the orbits of Deimos and Phobos, .0028 and .0210 respectively, as evidence against Mars' planetary catastrophisms. (See his criticism 9). I have postulated, in "The Scars of Mars," printed in both Kronos and C&AH, that a smallish planet, about as big as our Moon, fragmented on the Roche Limit of Mars, 5500 miles above its surface, into possibly hundreds of thousands of fragments. These individual fragments took one of three possible paths: (1 ) Some, perhaps ...

... required by current theories of solar system evolution? And why, if the planets and moons were formed from the same primordial cloud of gas and dust, are they such a fruit salad of physical characteristics, axial tilts, rotation rates and orbits? Why do many of the moons show sharp hemispherical differences? What really caused the strange pristine scars seen on the inner planets and moons? How is it that many of these scars are of such colossal size? In several cases we see, smaller moons, craters so large that the moons should have been pulverized by the impact, if indeed the craters were formed by impacting bodies. The ad-hoc nature of most expert answers to ...
