91. HOMO SCHIZO I: Chapter 7: PSYCHOPATHOLOGY OF HISTORY [Quantavolution Website]
... an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing. (Act V, scene 5) Whereupon he sallies forth to battle; death is the therapy: il se fait tuer or, as Americans express it, 'he gets himself killed,' Life "is a tale told by an idiot," the many idiots who live and then those who tell of it, and such is history. These famous lines of Shakespeare seem to be in context here. Starting with its creation, mankind moved through time on a spiral path around its schizoid core. On numerous occasions catastrophes changed the arc of the spiral, sending humanity closer to the core in mentation and behavior. Whenever the natural environment seemed to settle down, it appeared that he might invent ways of reaching beyond his limitations, and his historical spiral moved away from the core. But simultaneously, as if magnetized by the core, he would be pulled inwards to it. Thus it has happened that the record of some five thousand years of proto-history and history has found mankind reenacting time ...

... pressure" on anything.) I could go on, but you get the idea. They are wallowing around in a failed theory populated with fictional entities which they expound with an attitude of complete confidence. It's scary. They have absolutely NO idea about what they are looking at or talking about. Pulsars are simply relaxation oscillators. All the above boils down to the fact that charges, moving in a magnetic field, put out "electromagnetic radiation"- especially in a cosmic plasma, where we have Birkeland currents where charges spiral along within the magnetic field. So that's why cosmic plasmas give off EM signals. If the plasma current pulsates, so will the signal. And, so one last thing, if I may. A "relaxation oscillator" is an electrical circuit wherein a capacitor first charges up (because current is flowing into it) and then, when the resulting voltage on the capacitor gets "too large", it discharges rapidly. What determines the value that is "too large" depends on the physical situation. How often ...
93. The Berkeley Walls Extended [Science Frontiers Website]
... of large rocks, some are three feet in length, they may weigh a half ton. A century ago they ran for miles on these dry, wind-swept crests then down in a line to what is now the botanical gardens.".... "In the past twelve years, I have visited over forty miles of these stone structures. To call them walls is something of a misnomer. Some do go in a straight line, others twist like a demented snake up a steep hillside, others come in a spiral two hundred feet wide and circle into a boulder with a six-inch knob carved on the top of it. Some are massive, over six feet tall and run for miles." In the same article, Swanson relates how a local TV station that wanted to film the walls took him for a helicopter ride. As expected, all along the East Bay hills they discerned line after long line of walls. Then, when the copter passed over Mission Peak toward Mt. Allison, mile upon mile of still walls appeared. ...
94. Rare North Atlantic Light Wheel [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 117: May-June 1998 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Rare North Atlantic Light Wheel April 30, 1981. North Atlantic Ocean. "At exactly 2155 GMT, a white seasmoke type mist was observed glowing white between 2 and 5 metres above the sea surface. Further observation revealed that we were entering a large area of circulating bioluminescence of defined spiral form which appeared to be a pale emerald green in colour. Although the direction of rotation and the centre hub of the wheel could not be determined, the bands appeared to be of great dimension. While still proceeding through the bioluminescence and observing astern, it was noted that the formation of the bands became disrupted and seemed to diffuse a ragged appearance at the perimeter of the wheel to the port side of the vessel. Judging by the distance of the vessels close by-- which were being tracked by radar-- the extent of the rotating bands to the west could not be determined but they were estimated to be ...
95. Superorganisms: From Simplicity To Complexity [Science Frontiers Website]
... (mostly bacteria). Eventually, the moving colony of amoebas anchors itself. Some of the superorganism's cells specialize to create a stalk called a "fruiting body." The amoebas in the fruiting body change into spores and are wafted away on the wind. In this way, the simple, lowly amoebas are transformed into a radically different entity. One wonders how this superorganism, this slime mold, is controlled. Where are its sensors and its information processing center, if it possesses one? (Stewart, Ian; "Spiral Slime," Scientific American, 283:116, November 2000.) This question becomes more difficult to answer when we learn that slime molds can display rudimentary intelligence in the sense that they can solve mazes in their search for food. They are not as clever as rats, but they do optimize their travels through the maze. (Nakagaki, Toahiyuki, et al; "Maze-Solving by an Amoeboid Organism," Nature, 407:470, 2000.) Biofilms. Down near the bottom of life's ladder dwell the ...

... a time of severe drought, which may be a clue to their purpose. Next, strip off the geoglyphs (trapezoids and such), and a seeming mishmash of straight lines survives. But most are not random when analyzed. Most converge spoke-like upon 62 or more "ray centers." Thus, the Nazca Plain seems to be a 3-page book: biomorphs, geoglyphs, and spoked ray-centers. They all overlap. It's all a gigantic Rorschach test; and different observers see different things! A Nazca biomorph (monkey with spiral tail) overlain by an abstract, unexplained geoglyph. See Book Supplement for still another Nazca figure. Of course, there are doodles on this 400-square-mile canvas that don't fit on any of the three pages. We'll have to ignore them for now. The archeoastronomers first tried to read something meaningful into the Nazca lines, but they were disappointed. Computer analyses revealed no significant connections with the rising and settings of heavenly bodies. Next, some tried to relate the biomorphs to the celestial sphere. Did a terrestrial bird figure point ...
97. Missing Planets In Globular Clusters [Science Frontiers Website]
... globular clusters checked so far. Are globular clusters in general different from the rest of the Milky Way? Possibly, see below. (Anonymous; "No Globular Planets?" Astronomy, 28:34, October 2000. Anonymous; "Planets Come Up Missing in a Globular Cluster," Sky& Telescope, 104:23, October 2000.) Answer. Globular clusters are peculiar in several additional ways. For example, the globular clusters in the Milky Way have a spherical distribution rather than being compressed into a flat spiral with the rest of our galaxy's stars. There is even evidence that the clusters may not participate in the Milky Way's ponderous rotation. See AOB4 in Stars, Galaxies, Cosmos for still more globular-cluster idiosyncracies. A spherical cloud of globular clusters coexists in space with the disc-shaped Milky Way. Each globular cluster is a dense spherical aggregation of tens of thousands of stars.

... and "Akkadians" in the first millennium.B.C. as alter egos of the Chaldeans and Assyrians. Page 18 The Signature of Catastrophe Engineer James Strickling asks us to reconsider the conventional geological column. As usually presented it speaks for uneventful evolution. But the actual record indicates unexplained, catastrophic breaks between levels. Page 53 Stars, Galaxies and Electro-Gravitic Theory Following up on his introduction of electrogravitic theory (presented in issue number one), Charles Ginenthal reviews some of the ways the theory can be tested. Topics range from binary stars to spiral galaxies. Page 69.

Page 87 Velikovksy and the Problem of Planetary Identification Ev Cochrane, associate editor of KRONOS, explains why it is sometimes difficult to identify the planets among the gods. A discriminating approach can eliminate much of the confusion and perhaps correct some of the mistaken identities.

99. Sourceless Magnetic Fields? [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 135: MAY-JUN 2001 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Sourceless Magnetic Fields? Our pocket compasses attest to the reality of the earth's magnetic field, and astronomers can also measure the magnetic fields of the sun and some other stars. Plasmas streaming along the Milky Way's spiral arms also create galactic magnetic fields. But nowhere in the immense distances between the galaxies do astronomers see anything that might generate even a few lines of magnetic force. Nevertheless, intergalactic magnetic fields do exist. Furthermore, they are just as strong as the magnetic fields measured in the ponderously swirling, star-rich galaxies. Given the great volume of intergalactic space, we cannot ignore these apparently sourceless magnetic fields. Because, as astrophysicist S.A. Colgate observes: These magnetic fields are the dominant free energy of the universe. If so much energy pervades intergalactic space, it is there that we may find of the source of those perplexing high-energy cosmic rays mentioned in the preceding item. (Musser, George; " ...
100. Reply to Earl Milton [Aeon Journal $]
... and that they age at differing rates based on their masses. I further maintain that the colors of stars are indicators of their behavior. Thus, as stars age and become red they will tend to form clusters in the shape of a sphere. According to Milton's hypothesis, as galaxies move from one region of charged space to another of different charge they should also change color. For example, there are large spherical clusters of galaxies occupying huge regions of space. These galaxies are ellipticals and are red in color. If a spiral galaxy should enter such a region it too should be composed of predominantly red stars. If Milton's hypothesis is correct the same type of galaxy in all parts of the universe should exhibit somewhat different colorations and some should be completely different in coloration than nearly all others of its class. There are three main types of galaxies-spiral, elliptical and irregular. Wherever these same classes of galaxies are observed in the universe, they always have the same coloration. This evidence-one of my principle objections to Solaria Binaria-requires an explanation from Milton. As ...
