61. The Cambridge Conference [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... . Sinuous rills on the Moon indicated massive lightning discharges as magnetospheres clashed and similar features were seen on Venus. A 4000km rill cannot be explained as either water or lava flow, round domes look more like electrical discharge scars than volcanic lava flows and thousands of fine lines are like nothing explicable by Earth tectonics. The heat of Venus is greatest at lowest altitudes, indicating that it is internal and not due to a greenhouse effect. There does not appear to be any old terrain but the formation of a crust which registered later scar formations indicated that it must have been visible for some time before it became a threat. A quick survey of other planets showed their electrical nature too. Jupiter could well have been the birthplace of other objects, 'thunder bolts' emitted in plasmoid form. The afternoon drew to a close with a consideration by David Slade of the possible role of volcanic eruptions in world wide catastrophes and their record in ice cores. Myths appear to be reporting the sighting of catastrophe causing cosmic objects but could the passing of such an object cause ...

... the Moon. Now the Clementine lunar orbiter has confirmed a transient change in redness in a lunar crater. Explanations have involved outgassing, volcanism, raising of moondust, and rock fluorescence under bombardment from solar wind particles. However, the emission of visible light is poorly understood. In this case, remnant vulcanism is thought to be most likely. Rilles are thought to be collapsed lava tubes. But Schröter's Valley is not volcanic. That brilliant engineer, the late Ralph Juergens, showed in the early 1970's that it is a typical scar caused by a massive lightning bolt. If it were volcanic, where is the lava outflow? Where is the collapsed roof of a lava tube? Where do we find lava tubes 7 km wide? How could a flowing liquid of any sort form the tortuous inner channel on the valley floor? Why does that channel become narrower toward its "outflow" end? How do some rilles cross mountains? The Electric Universe model has a simple explanation. All bodies in the solar system are embedded in an electric glow discharge, ...

... lightning scars on golf courses and videos taken of lava tubes in Australia to sinuous rilles on the moon. He finds that these enormous scars on the moon have more in common with lightning scars than with collapsed lava tubes, the conventional astronomical explanation. Thornhill takes us on a fast-paced tour of planets, moons, asteroids and comets. All show evidence of planetary-scale electrical scarring. He claims that Valles Marineris, the 4000 kilometer long canyon across the face of the planet Mars, is an example of a cathode discharge, a lightning scar. He interprets Olympus Mons, the biggest "volcano" in the solar system, as a giant "blister", comparable to fulgamites found on lightning conductors after a strike. On Venus, Thornhill displays the arachnoid, or spider web, patterns of craters and rilles, along with on-channel cratering and parallel channels terminating in craters. All are characteristic of electrical discharge. Astronomers haven't yet agreed with catastrophists that Venus is young, but they now refer to its pristine appearance as "recently resurfaced." Thornhill's theory replaces the ...

... covered with circular craters and sinuous rilles, down to the limits of resolution. The melted floor looks like fresh tarmac by comparison. Sinuous rilles are diagnostic of electrical cratering, similar scarring having been observed on Earth (on a much reduced scale) from powerful lightning bolts. The analogy of the effects of the discharge to that of a shaped router bit biting into the Moon's surface comes to mind. If you can imagine that the outer edge of the bit breaks off rapidly and incrementally, the analogy is even better. The scar would not be formed instantaneously in one colossal blast as the impact theory would have it, but spread over 10's of seconds, or minutes. So, the collateral damage would be many orders of magnitude less. This would, for example, explain why Saturn's 390km diameter moon, Mimas, can have a huge 130km diameter bullseye crater and still be in one piece. Sudden jumps in discharge current will form multiple-ringed craters. Such sudden jumps, from diffuse to more concentrated are commonly observed in electric arcs. The mighty triple ...

... .---- FINGERS CROSSED FOR JULY 4 Given the many successes of space missions involving orbiting spacecraft around other planets, it is odd that the closest planet, Mars, has had 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", show the surface markings expected of objects which have been subjected to electrical discharge machining. Those characteristics are: linear chains of circular craters; large circular craters which, had they been formed by ...

... us prepare for the January' 1997 world conference. During that time he convinced me that the celestial images I had reconstructed were plasma discharge phenomena. This revelation proved to be a critical turn in the historical investigation. For many years I had insisted that electromagnetism would have to be considered if we were to account for the remembered dynamics of the ancient Saturnian system. From the beginning I was convinced (following Velikovsky's lead) that lightning bolts had passed between planets. And I had identified the Valles Marineris on Mars as the lightning scar, wound, or disfiguring mark on the celestial warriors of mythology (the "Scarface" motif about which I've spoken elsewhere). But prior to Wal Thornhill's arrival in Portland, I didn't even know what a Birkeland Current is, and I knew nothing about the unique configurations taken by plasma discharges. CONVERGENCE OF MYTH AND SCIENCE While I've experienced many breakthroughs over more than a quarter century, this one exceeded all others. It was the first indication that, at a level of explicit detail, a convergence of myth and ...

... (or inaction) understandable in light of past and present events. Warwick also points out that Velikovsky is not the only inadequately recognized for a noteworthy suggestion. This is not in defense of the scientific community; it is offered only as a statement of fact. 19 SPOT If Jupiter ejected a large object, this would lead one reasonably to expect that a structural defect would bea fault in the planet. Velikovsky suggests that one of the most prominent characteristics of Jupiter, its red spot, is an atmospheric effect related to the scar where Venus was ejected. Hide has suggested that the red spot could be the result of an anomaly in the structure of Jupiter, and that the disturbance this creates manifests itself in the heavy cloud layer at the top of the atmosphere 20 He has since expanded this explanation in terms of a "Taylor Column" and performed experiments which further support the ideas. 21 Recent probe data, however, is interpreted in terms not requiring a surface anomaly.

69. Return to the Paelo-Saturnian Ssystem (Forum) [Aeon Journal $]
... I am not yet quite ready to accept this interpretation since my own research on the subject is still ongoing. Besides, twins though they might have been, the identification of Cain and Abel as the dual Saturnian crescent makes no sense when it comes to the primal event connected with these two-- the murder of Abel by Cain. Moreover, the second most important event concerning Cain is the mark by which divine displeasure branded him. This smacks of the Scarface myths of other races in which the Martian hero receives a horrendous scar upon his face. Wallace Thornhill even sees this cicatrix embodied in the enormous canyon, known as Valles Marineris, which cuts across the present Martian terrain. This formation is vast enough to have been readily visible to terrestrial eyes when Mars loomed closer to Earth. [78 I hope Bar-Ron will not now ask how it could have been that both Adam and Cain represented the same planet Mars. We find it no different in Roman mythology where Janus and Saturnus once represented the same planet Saturn. [79 When it comes to ...

... . Concerning origins, geologists are satisfied that their composition is earthly. However, if the surface stratification we see on Earth, the Moon and Mars is due to deposition from space- which I think is a far better model- then such satisfaction may be unwarranted. It seems to me that material that is glassified in a cosmic electric discharge will be near the center of the discharge channel and will suffer the most violent acceleration spacewards. So it would not be surprising if tektites are rare at the site of the planetary electrical scar. (See the section on meteorites on my CD). Wal Thornhill See the home of The Electric Universe at http://www.holoscience.com---- OTHER STARS, OTHER WORLDS, OTHER LIFE By Wal Thornhill Emeritus Professor at the Australian National University, Dr. S. Ross Taylor has concluded after a lifetime's work on the formation of the solar system: "When the remote chances of developing a habitable planet are added to the chances of developing both high intelligence and a technically advanced civilization, the odds of ...
