... Mediterranean area, as the difference in level was very small. But when the North Pole was at its other extreme, near the New Siberia Islands, the Straits of Gibraltar were situated considerably farther south, and hence enormous water masses must have poured in. As the position of the pole moved about between these two extremes in a decreasing spiral the level of the Mediterranean must have repeatedly risen and fallen, the waters rushing into or surging out of the New Sea. The greater extent of the Mediterranean in the past is proved by numerous evidences. In Tunisia a line of salt-lakes, or rather salt-marshes (shats), leads into the interior from the Gulf of Gabès ( ...
172. Aeon Volume One, "The Cataclysm": Contents [Journals] [Aeon]
... 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. Aeonic Aphorisms Twenty-five pithy insights concerning man, myth and catastrophism, by Roger Wescott, Professor of Anthropology at Drew University. 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 ...
173. The Electric Universe: Slide Presentation & Notes by Wallace Thornhill [Journals] [Aeon]
... factory and think of it as a focal point of galactic electrical energy. He tells us: ". .. although it is true that a plasma is a good conductor, it is very limited in its ability to carry current. So, if the rate of charge separation within the galaxy exceeds the capability of the plasma threading the spiral arms to carry it, the plasma will be under constant stress and current will flow continuously, powering the stars within it." (p . 28.) In defense of this outrageous claim, Thornhill points out that stellar electrical discharges provide a simple explanation for solar phenomena that have baffled the atomic energy paradigm. Among these mysteries ...
174. On Dayton and Dating [Journals] [SIS Review]
... is there a gap of three centuries in the history of the technique. This view is preferable to both the conventional view and Dayton's proposal. Dayton notes that a fragment of the neo-Elamite vessel from Hasanlu, made of Egyptian Blue and dated to the 9th century BC, has features typical of Mitannian art, and also bears the guilloche and spiral motifs characteristic of the Aegean world of the Late Bronze Age; he suggests that the piece shows "the survival of Mitannian glazing traditions in the Lake Urmia region" into the 9th century (p . 371). However, when the chronology of the kingdom of Mitanni is reduced in line with Velikovsky's dates for the XVIIIth Dynasty, ...

176. The Cosmic Winter by Victor Clube and Bill Napier [Journals] [SIS Review]
... hindsight and scientific advance. They rejected Velikovsky's identification of the agents of destruction as wayward planets [3 ], substituting true comets, though of much larger size than commonly considered in astronomical literature [4 ]. They also provided a novel mechanism for the injection of comets into the Solar System: capture from cold, dense nebulae in the spiral arms of the galaxy [5 ], also descriptively termed Molecular Clouds in the literature. Over half of Serpent' deals with astronomical theory, evidence and speculation. Then in Chapter 8, Comets and Gods', the authors dabble in the Velikovskian field of tracing cometary disasters in ancient history and myth, with the familiar adjustments to ...
177. The Stones of Time; Calendars, Sundials, and the Stone Chambers of Ancient Ireland by Martin Brennan (Book Review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Aine, also took a serpentine form. Why this should impinge on the role the Sun, and the Moon, played at megalithic sites is a bit of a puzzle. An interpretation of abstract megalithic art might furnish a clue. It involves dots and cup marks, lines, circles, arcs and crescents, zig-zags, wavy lines, spirals, and the oval and ellipse. There are 390 engraved stones in Ireland, all associated with passage mounds, and Brennan claims they are all astronomically orientated. This book has large numbers of illustrations and, indeed, the art of 203 of those stones is depicted in full. It is a valuable asset just for that. Brennan ...

... accepted view of the sun as an isolated fusion factory and think of it as a focal point of galactic electrical energy. He tells us that, although plasma is a good conductor, it is limited in its ability to carry current. So, if the rate of charge separation within the galaxy exceeds the capability of the plasma threading the spiral arms to carry it, the plasma will be under constant stress and current will flow continuously, powering the stars within it. In defense of this outrageous claim, Thornhill points out that stellar electrical discharges provide a simple explanation for solar phenomena that have baffled the atomic energy paradigm. Among these mysteries are: Where did all the neutrinos ...
179. Plenitude of New Worlds Challenges Skills of Planetary Modelers [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... UCSC, and Derek Richardson of the University of Toronto had their solution. The planet coalesced in a colder region of its star's nebula, perhaps 100 times further away than it is today. Then, in a million-year gravitational tug-of-war among the star, the planet, and gas and dust in the rest of the disk, 51 Pegasi B spiralled slowly but relentlessly toward the star. Finally, in the model's biggest surprise, inward and outward forces on the planet's orbit cancelled each other out just before the star would have devoured the planet. The team published its paper in Nature on April 18, 1996. Lin's idea that infant planets can migrate either toward or away from their ...
