71. Electrical Origin of the Outbursts on Io [SIS C&C Review $]
... Association for the Advancement of Science This paper first appeared in Science, Vol. 306, 30 November 1979, pp. 1071-1073, and is reprinted by permission of the publishers and the author. The outbursts seen on Jupiter's Satellite Io have been described as volcanic eruptions. They may instead be the result of large electric currents flowing through hot spots on Io and causing the evaporation of surface materials. A strictly periodic behaviour would then be expected. In the course of the Voyager I mission photography of Jupiter's satellite Io, at least seven violent eruptions were identified, apparently throwing material to heights up to 270 km and emanating from caldera-like markings. The eruptions were regarded as volcanic in origin by the various scientific teams that had the primary responsibility for the analysis of the data (1, 2). Thus one of the teams writes, "Probably the most spectacular discovery of the Voyager mission has been the existence of active volcanoes on Io, erupting material to heights of several hundred kilometers above the surface" (1, p. 961). A volcanic ...

... conclusions presented in Oedipus and Akhnaton on the improbability of a cultural exchange between Egypt and Greece at such an early time. This, despite the fact that "Mycenaean ware was found in abundance in the capital city of Akhnaton, and a seal bearing the name of Aklinaton's mother turned up in a Mycenaean grave in Greece. "4 THE LEGEND A number of treatments of the Oedipus theme exist. 5 Sophocles presented three plays: Oedipus Rex, Oedipus at Colonus and Antigone. Aeschylus also wrote three plays, of which only The Seven Against Thebes remains. The names and details change, but the major plot is recognizable in each. It generally proceeds along the following lines: A royal couple have a baby son and, wishing to know what great things are in store for the child, consult a local blind soothsayer. Unfortunately, instead of the usual niceties provided by fortune tellers, the royal couple are told that the son will grow up and kill his father, marry his mother and corruption will ruin the kingdom. Disturbed by this prophecy, the ...
73. Venus As the Dove [SIS Internet Digest $]
... , it was then safe to venture out into the world again. "Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground; "But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark. "And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark; "And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth. "And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him any more." Comments by Dwardu Cardona: Precisely. Venus left the ark (the Saturnian crescent) and descended toward Earth, ...

... to have ships going there. Velikovsky suggested that Elippe came from the Hebrew word ilpha, which was derived from a Syrian word meaning ship, and the Hebrew word aluph meaning clan leader, family leader, or prince. The elippe that float and carry cargo and people were ships and the elippe that dabbled in the affairs of men are possibly chieftains. if so, it would also explain some apparent exaggerations in the Hebrew record. For example, since "eleph" is "thousand", a wall falling and killing twenty seven thousand people would more likely have been a wall falling on twenty seven "chieftains". The words ilph a, aluph and eleph all have the forms aleph, lamed, phe. Gold and silver are always popular, but the popularity of some items is a function of time. During the time of Amenhotep Ill and IV (Akhnaton) ivory was very stylish. These Pharaohs often filled requests for various items which were either solid ivory or olive wood inlaid with ivory. The el-Amarna letters tell of a number of shipments ...
75. Saturn's Golden Age [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... before the Deluge, but if it moved on an orbit not too different from the present one, and the Earth were moving approximately in the same quarters where it moves today, then the surprise still persists as to how a body on a 30-years-long orbit could make the inhabitants of the Earth on its one-year-long orbit, regard it the supreme of all celestial bodies in the sky. The appellative ? sun ? employed for Saturn could be explained by its unusual brightness when it exploded as a nova for a short time, actually for seven days, before the beginning of the Deluge on Earth. Assuming the length of the day in those times to have been not too dissimilar from its present value, the velocity of the moving masses being on the order of 100 kilometers a second or 8,600,000 kilometers in a 24-hour period, and the Earth and Saturn being on the closest points on their reciprocal orbits, or in conjuction (which is another surmise), in seven days a distance of ca. 60 million kilometers would be covered. On ...

... then discussed and one obtains a fair idea of how far cometary theory has progressed since the flying sand bank postulate of a few decades ago. The current belief is that asteroids and/or minor planets may be decayed comets. Thus, from page 325, we learn that: The possibility that lunar size bodies might have originally played a significant role in the formation of the solar system seems first to have been put forward in recent years by Urey (1972), and it is an interesting coincidence that there are at least seven known bodies with diameters of this order: the Moon (3472 km), Io (3630 km), Europa (3138 km), Triton (3800 km), and the rocky cores of Ganymede (3700 200 km), Callisto (3200 200 km) and Pluto (3000 500 km). That a large population of Moon-sized bodies might be orbiting beyond Neptune may thus be quite reasonable, and comets could in principle be produced by the collisions between such bodies or their icy fragments right to the present day ...
77. The Worship of Jupiter [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... him do we mortals never leave unnamed; full of Zeus are all the streets and all the marketplaces of men; full is the sea and the heavens thereof... He it was who first set up the signs in heaven... Wherefore him do we men ever worship first and last.? (1) In these words Aratus (fl. -310) pictured the place the planet-god Jupiter occupied in the thoughts of men. Nobody today in the streets and marketplaces mentions the planet Jupiter. St. Augustine, seven centuries after Aratus, asked: But since they call Jupiter king of all, who will not laugh to see his star so far surpassed in brilliancy by the star of Venus?... They answer that it only appears so because it is higher up and much farther away from the earth. If, therefore, its greater dignity has deserved a higher place, why is Saturn higher in the heavens that Jupiter? (2) Marduk, the great god of the Babylonians, was the planet Jupiter; (3 ...

... . Cr. C. Mauge. Also: Beil, L.; "Dilutions of Delusions," Science News, 134:6, 1988. Also: Vines, Gail; "Ghostly Antibodies Baffle Scientists," New Scientist, p. 39, July 14, 1988. Also: Pool, Robert; "Unbelievable Results Spark a Controversy," Science, 241: 407, 1988. As a matter of fact, the second phase of the controversy has already begun. The July 28 issue of Nature reports that seven repetitions of the dilution experiment produced four positive and three negative results. The three negative experiments were the only double-blind versions of the basic experiment that have been performed so far. "Double-blind" means that "all test tubes had been randomly coded twice. The person measuring the cells' reaction to the antibodies could not have been influenced by a preconcieved idea of the results." These seven repetitions were carried out at the University of Paris-Sud laboratory of J. Benveniste. In a reply to the July 28 report in Nature ...
80. The Secret Of It All Is In The Pi [Science Frontiers Website]
... , Pollard discoursed on the meaning of it all and how mathematics seemed to mirror reality so marvelously. Now, one fixture of mathematics is the transcendental number. The adjective "transcendental" is most appropriate here given the title of Pollard's article. Of the transcendental numbers, pi is a great favorite. Mathematicians like pi so much that they have computed it out to well beyond 10 million decimals. Are there any inklings to the meaning of it all in these 10 million-plus decimals? Well, at decimal 710,100 there are seven 3s in a row. At decimal 1,526,800, we find the digits 2718281, the first seven digits of e, the base of natural logarithms. Then at decimal 52,638 there is 14142135, the first eight digits of the square root of 2. But all these discoveries are hardly profound, for they could occur by chance-- nothing really "transcendental" so far. A more astounding discovery is that: 22(pi) 4= 2143 A few multiplications, and the 10 million-plus ...
