121. Stars in an Electric Universe [Journals] [Aeon]
... auroras. Birkeland believed that similar experiments could be conducted to model other planets, the Sun, and even galaxies. He wrote: "experiments were carried out under these conditions for many years. It was in this way that there gradually appeared experimental analogies to various cosmic phenomena, such as zodiacal light, Saturn's rings, sun spots and spiral nebulae. The consequence was that attempts were made to knit together all these new discoveries and hypotheses into one cosmogonic theory, in which solar systems and the formation of galactic systems are discussed perhaps more from electromagnetic points of view than from the theory of gravitation." Birkeland currents. Plasmas do not behave like a gas, they develop ...
122. Is the Universe Finite? [Journals] [Aeon]
... rotating in a 3-dimensional array. To give this some perspective, the Earth orbits the Sun as the entire solar family wends its way toward some position in the direction of o-Hercules. The Sun and its family of planets occupy a spot in our own galaxy, that we affectionately call the Milky Way, about two-thirds out on one of its spiral arms. The Milky Way itself is part of a constellation of some two dozen galaxies prosaically known as the Local Group, which is also comprised of 90-odd globular clusters and other nebular objects that number some 120 separate constellatory bodies, and which in turn forms a fragment of an even larger supergalaxy comprising perhaps hundreds of separate galaxies, each ...
123. Scientific Prehistory [Books]
... slowly with respect to the center and are nearly twice as far out, so require well over 109 years for a single revolution around the galaxy. One may perhaps regard our galaxy as an average of the larger types. Galaxies have been classified according to type [ter Haar] as "elliptic" (EO to E7), "spiral" (So, Sa, Sb, Sc), and "barred spirals"(SBa, SBb, SBc). Authorities suppose these all bear a genetic relationship to each other. EO nebulae are symmetrical, the eccentricity and flattening increasing in the direction EO to E7; the structure becomes more and more loose in this direction ...
124. Jupiter in Collision: in Search of Velikovsky's Comet [Articles]
... great meteoric showers. Present auroral displays, sometimes called the Northern Lights, are the product of periodic solar flares which cause temporary charge imbalances in the Earth's magnetic field. When these entrapped charges reach a critical point, they rush from the trailing end of the tear shaped geomagnetic belt and cascade down the north and south magnetic poles in a spiral pattern. These charged particles become visible as they collide with rising atoms of oxygen and nitrogen, producing a distinctive belt of glowing gases in the Earth's upper atmosphere. The great pillar aurora is most easily understood as an upward extension of the present auroral oval and its interior polar cap. The great pillar of the Exodus would be initiated ...
125. Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning [Books]
... known from our latitude, and but seven or eight of these visible to the naked eye. Variability in its light is also suspected. It lies about 70 north and 2120 west of Cor Caroli. A misty spot in this constellation can be seen with a low-power 30 southwest from Al Kaid (h Ursae Majoris). This is the Spiral Nebula of Lord Rosse, or the Whirlpool Nebula, N.G .C . 5194, 51 M., our long-established ideas of which have recently been somewhat modified by a photograph taken by Mr. Isaac Roberts after four hours' exposure. It now appears to be composed of a pair of curving arms issuing from opposite extremities ...
126. Chapter 7 Iron, Diorite and Other Hard Rock [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... , and quite capable of being set, but far too large to act as a loose powder with a plain blade. On the Egyptian examples there are long grooves in the faces of the cuts of both saws and drills; and grooves may be made by working a loose powder. But, further, the groove certainly seems to run spirally around a core, which would show that it was cut by a single point; and where quartz and softer feldspar are cut through the groove floor runs on one level, and as the feldspar is worn down by general rubbing, the quartz is actually cut through to a greater depth than the softer feldspar. This shows that a ...
127. The Electromagnetic Circularization of Planetary Orbits [Journals] [Kronos]
... There is evidence that the Sun and planets possess large electric charges. Any charged body moving in a magnetic field in any direction other than one that is precisely aligned with the field will be subjected to a force tending to change its trajectory. In general, the acceleration due to such a force will tend to make the body revolve or spiral around an axis parallel to the magnetic field, and the radius of curvature will be determined by the velocity of the body relative to the magnetic field, the mass of the body, the charge of the body, and the strength of the field.* (* Footnote: A body with a total charge e (Coulombs) ...
128. Square Craters Detected on Eros [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... 2 (Dec 2000) Home | Issue Contents Square Craters Detected on Eros CCNet, 25 May 2000 NASA's NEAR Shoemaker spacecraft has spotted square-shaped craters on asteroid Eros, a telltale sign of mysterious goings-on in the asteroid belt long ago. September 26, 2000- In the pantheon of cosmic geometry, curves rule. Astronomy texts are filled with spiral galaxies, elliptical orbits, and ring nebulae. There are no chapters on triangles or rectangles- after all, who ever heard of a square planet? Some of the simplest shapes, common in the handiwork of humans, are just plain rare in space. Rare, but not impossible... Last month, astronomers were studying ...
129. The Opening Of The Mouth Ritual - Part I [Journals] [Aeon]
... his resurrection he goes to heaven and takes on the job of God of the Dead and Lord of the Underworld. In the Hall of Two Truths, Osiris sat on this throne "at the top of a flight of steps representing the primeval hill where Ra had been born and started creation."  Fig. 2. Spiraling Venus, lower right; Mars is the dark sphere (Courtesy of David Talbott) Not to give the entire game away, but still alert the reader for things to look for, I feel I must give some explanation now as to what I think really happened. So, again very briefly, the origin of this story is ...
130. On testing The Polar configuration [Journals] [Aeon]
... noted the key components: central, stationary orb of Saturn at the celestial Pole; four primary streams of ejecta radiating in four directions; enclosing band; illuminated crescent displayed on the band (and, as the earth rotated, visually revolving around Saturn); aaethereal column appearing to hold aloft the revolving wheel; and comet-like appendage seeming to spiral out from the wheel and revolving faster than the crescent. In analyzing this model, it will be crucial that we separate the human experience of the configuration from the objective scheme behind it. As I have previously stated more than once, the model, involving planets in extremely close conjunction and in polar alignment, allows for several deceiving ...
