111. The Saturn Thesis [Journals] [Aeon]
... along the world axis. Mars as prototype of the trickster and fool. The great crescent appearing on Saturn and turning with the cycle of day and night. Formation of the polar mountain or cosmic column, related directly to the movements of Mars along the polar axis. Formation of a circumpolar band, intimately tied to the activity of the spiraling Venus comet. The presence of the chaos hordes, large volumes of comet-like debris moving in shifting relationships to the participating planets, stretching between planets and giving the evolving polar configuration many of its most distinctive forms. These would be a few of perhaps a couple of hundred fundamental tenets I believe to be well established- and, in ...

112. On Cosmic Electricity [Journals] [Pensee]
... That law of electrical discharges which has been of the greatest importance in cosmic atmospheric electrical discharges, and, as I had written to Ralph Juergens in 1965, has shaped the universe, is their property of aggregating atmospheric matter along the discharge channel, whether the discharge is the ignition spark of a car, the welding arc, or a spiral arm of a galaxy. When it operates, as it does whenever electrical breakdown occurs, one can forget about the force of gravitation, as every arc welder knows. This law was probably first brought to the notice of electrical engineers in a paper by Bellaschi of the American Westinghouse Company in 1937. His colleague R. C. ...

113. Redshift! [Journals] [Aeon]
... considerable debate in the Royal Astronomical Society meetings he published an extensive account of his mass-luminosity law in 1926. But the cepheid variables were all giant stars of enormous luminosities, far greater than that of our own Sun, which turned out to be most helpful in determining tremendous intergalactic distances from a practical standpoint. The cepheids typically reside in the spiral arms of our own galaxy and in those of M31, and are among the younger members of the stellar community. And, to complicate the picture even further, somewhile later, circa 1952, Walter Baade of Palomar Observatory attempted to find another group of variables, the RR Lyrae, in the galaxy M31 (also known as the ...

... `letters') appeared the following month in Nature [13,15,22,96,228-232]. Several explanations centred on the possibility that the comets of the Solar System might be disrupted at regular intervals. Victor Clube and Bill Napier had previously suggested that comets would be captured by the Solar System as it passed through a spiral arm of the galaxy every 50-400 Myr [32,233,234] leading to a period of increased cometary activity during which several comets or cometary-derived asteroids [32,234-238] might collide with the Earth. However, such a mechanism would result in a much greater time-interval between mass extinction events than that indicated by the data of ...

... adjacent country; and deep excavations are to be observed within a few hundred yards of the group, but none occur in its immediate vicinity. The usual evidences of a remote, ancient population, fragments of pottery, rude implements of stone, etc., are abundant in the neighborhood. Some of these mounds in the Southern States have spiral ascents to their summits, sufficiently broad to admit two horsemen to ride abreast. One of this description, composed entirely of marine shells, is said to exist on the shores of Pascagoula Bay, in Mississippi; another at the junction of the Ten- Washita, and Camhoola Rivers, in Louisiana and Bartram mentions one near Savannah, ...

... few billion years after the Big Bang, when the universe was much smaller and more compact. "These pictures are very exciting because they show us processes that were taking place in the early universe," Whitmore said. The Antennae galaxies- so-called because they have a pair of wispy star tails resembling an insect's antennae- began as two roughly equal spiral galaxies, shaped like the Milky Way. They contained few stars and were mostly composed of huge clouds of cold hydrogen gas. When they plowed into each other, the gas clouds were squeezed and heated and eventually collapsed under their own gravity. They formed more than 1,000 bright blue star clusters, each containing 100,000 ...

... I state these things here to show the reader how revolving matter must fall continually toward its primary. A moving body which is continually losing power, or moving energy, will eventually stop its course. Now it makes no difference whether a revolving mass be moon, a ring, a belt or a canopy, it will wind up its spiral course in a fall on its primary. A ring system then means catastrophe and violence. Whatever revolves must fall. Let us remember this as we look over the track of ruin and the wreck of rings. For a vast lapse of time after the annular matter in the lower part of the system fell, the outer part of ...

... From the above it is seen that current flowed west to east in the plasma layer. If H was reversed, current flow was east to west. The planet thus resembled a ball wrapped with a single layer of fine insulated wire closely packed from pole to equator to other pole, each turn parallel with every other (excepting for the spiral angle due to its thickness), with wire ends at the poles where battery connections send current through this very special model electromagnet. Each turn is in the same sense about the axis so generates a magnetic field in the same sense, all turns adding to the overall magnetism of the ball. It should be noted, however, ...

... The main tenet of Hoerbiger's theory is that cosmic space, and, more especially, interplanetary space, is not absolutely vacuous, but is filled with a very thin material medium, chiefly of gaseous character. Planets moving in such a medium will experience a certain resistance, and hence their orbits cannot be re-entering elliptical curves, but must be spirals tending sunward. Though this `involution' will be exceedingly minute it must in the course of time produce great changes. It goes without saying that smaller planets will experience more resistance than bigger ones and that the inward tendency of their orbital spirals will consequently be much more pronounced. Hence, smaller outer planets must eventually trespass into the ...

... sage thus: "Taaut first attributed something of the divine nature to the serpentfor this beast was esteemed by him to be the most spiritual of all reptiles and of a fiery nature inasmuch as it exhibits an incredible celerity, moving by its spirit without hands or feet, and in its progress assumes a variety of shapes, moving in a spiral course and darting forward with whatever degree of swiftness it pleases."6 The analogy with a cometary body is very complete, for the latter is fiery, assumes a variety of shapes, writhing and contorting itself according to how its gases are affected by heliacal attraction or repression, moves in a spiral course inasmuch as after every circuit ...
