141. Thoth Vol I, No. 22: August 31, 1997 [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 ...

... , terror, and an explosion of human imagination. If such planetary drama did occur, and included catastrophic interactions of the planets, how much do you think that the planets today could tell us about what the ancient SAW, or about the specific sequence of events? Whatever the nature of the catastrophes, we would certainly expect to find scars and telltale indicators of past upheaval on the planets. But it would be absurd to deny in advance the potential for vastly more specific details from those who witnessed the events. And we would quickly see the absolute necessity of honing our investigative skills and critical judgment in order to gain the full value of that testimony. It is not ...
143. Falling Star [Journals] [Aeon]
... , Feather Woman ignores her husband's injunction against digging up a particular turnip and, upon discovering the hole in heaven and seeing how beautiful it is back on Earth, decides to return by way of a celestial rope. Rather than being distinguished by a star upon his forehead, as in the Pawnee tale, Star-boy is marked by a horrible scar- hence the name Scarface. As a result of his disfigurement, Scarface suffers abuse at the hands of the local children who "made fun of him and stoned him."  Scarface is eventually healed of his terrible scar by the Sun himself. Indeed, the healing is so successful it is said "he and ...

... in the centre of many - unlike impacts but like those found by astronauts in small craters on the Moon. Mr. M. asked: Are there any craters on earth that have melted glassy deposits in the centre? Wal replies: Ordinary lightning can create fulgurites (melted sand) in very dry soil. The detailed form of electrical scarring on a solid object's surface depends upon a myriad factors. For example, both the Earth and it seems, Europa, have a surface which is basically of highly conductive salty water. It will not crater but distribute charge globally in a very efficient manner. On Europa the current carrying channels have been preserved in a frozen state. ...

... that the overwhelming fallout of Thera ash occurred in the Southeastern Mediterranean Sea. Yet geologists might consider whether internal earth stresses could have induced not only the familiar cone volcanoes but also fissure eruptions, which, no matter how voluminously eruptive, leave little evidence for the unsuspecting eye once they have become extinct. A geologist might then search for some scars and volcanic products on the modem landscape. It is also well to remind ourselves that Homer, in describing at least one Trojan war, has Mt. Ida behaving in peculiar ways when the gods of heaven enter the battle of Greeks and Trojans: "From high above the father of gods and men made thunder terribly, while Poseidon ...

... the equator. Is this possible evidence of Mars' position in the ancient alignment, that is, larger northern icecap (water ice) and water running towards the equator? Any thoughts? Wal Thornhill responds: Most of the channels crisscrossing the equator were not formed by the action of water. They are almost without exception electrical plasma arc scars of one form or another. James Conway asks: What is the minimum mass of an object needed to produce such scars if the bodies have a near miss. Wal Thornhill replies: It would have to be a large body to have sufficient charge available to cause the damage seen on Mars. Juergens made some rough order of magnitude ...

... . THE ELECTRIC UNIVERSE For many years now, Thornhill has been arguing that the universe is governed at a fundamental level by electromagnetic forces. Recently, at the Portland World Conference sponsored by Kronia Communications in September, 2000, Thornhill presented an impressive body of evidence that various planets in the solar system had only recently experienced significant episodes of catastrophic scarring. The surfaces of Mars, Venus, and Io, in particular, offer striking examples of extensive rilles, circular cratering, and fretting which Thornhill interprets as the result of an electrical scarring process akin to machine-arcing. Figure 1. Birkeland currents. Plasmas do not behave like a gas, they develop structure. Electric current in a ...

... isotopic modification by enhanced radiation, followed by sudden cooling - all the symptoms of a plasma discharge. I predicted that the features of the enigmatic chondrule shells could be reproduced in the lab in a plasma oven. (A planetary discharge is a very effective way for Martian meteorites to have been created). Very strong evidence for planetary electrical scarring comes from the Magellan Orbiter images of Venus. Also, the Jovian moon, Europa was presumably a part of the SC and would also have been subject to electrical scarring. I predict that when closeups of Europa are available in December, the so-called cracks in the ice will be found to be electric discharge channels with the raised levees ...

... more than its share of sudden, complete failures of spacecraft on final approach. Is it possible that the Maruts of Mars, as described by Velikovsky, have their unseen remnants still orbiting the planet - creating an unsuspected hazard for all approaching spacecraft, including future manned missions to the red orb? If, as I surmise, the colossal scar on Mars known as the Valles Marineris was spark-machined out of the planet's surface only a few thousand years ago, as the ancients report, then I would expect there to be more debris orbiting Mars than just the two remnants of that cataclysm, Phobos and Deimos. These two asteroids, dignified with the title, "moons", ...
