181. Thoth Vol VI, No 4: June 30, 2002 [Journals] [Thoth]
... within orbiting charged particles. A stable electron orbit is one in which the gain and loss of energy between a deformable electron and all of the subtrons in the other electrons and the nucleus sums to zero over that orbit. Electrons in an atom "whisper" to the nucleus in order to prevent the "classical catastrophe" of the electron spiralling into the nucleus. Changes in resonant state occur in quantum jumps and give rise to an un-cancelled oscillating electric force that may be accepted by another atom. An atomic nucleus operates in the same way, so that quantum tunnelling effects and nuclear interactions can be understood in resonant terms rather than simplistic coulomb barriers. The nuclear force is then ...
182. The Yuty Crater on Mars [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... preserved for the convenience of cosmogonists wholly undisturbed. A body falling from infinity on the surface of the Moon would attain a velocity of impact of 2.38 km/s . Most bodies hitting the Moon would be moving at this or lower velocity, having been slowed down by the combined gravitational fields of the Earth and Moon into a spiralling trajectory. The Moon may have been an independent planet, in which case this consideration will not apply. Nevertheless, bodies co-orbiting the Sun with the Moon or Mars would have relative orbital velocities of the order of a couple of km. Yet lunar impact at velocities exceeding 10 km/s are assumed. On what evidence? In ...
183. Hoerbiger (The Atlantis Myth) [Books]
... to bodies revolving in it a constant resistance which must, in the course of long spells of time, influence their orbits. Simply expressed, the actual path of a planet will therefore be the resultant of the resistance offered by the interplanetary medium and the solar pull. Instead of re-entrant curves-ellipses-the planetary orbits will therefore be extremely finely wound elliptic spirals which tend inward, very much like the sound-track on a gramophone record. It goes without saying that the massier a planet is and the more quickly it moves through the interplanetary medium (in other words, the greater its orbital momentum is) the smaller the coefficient of its `orbital involution' will be; a lighter and more ...
184. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... edited by Christopher Walker, British Museum Press, £25 The most comprehensive survey of early world astronomy to date, packed with chapters by experts in every field. The following are available from Kronia Communications, Inc., 9350 SW Greenway, 24, Beaverton, OR 97008, USA. at $24.95 each. They are spiral bound books of the pictures and accompanying text from important slide presentations at Portland, Oregon in 1997. The Electric Universe by Wallace Thornhill For anyone dissatisfied with orthodox views of a gravity dominated universe, this is essential reading, its interdisciplinary research presenting a picture of an electric universe within which the catastrophic events described in myth can be explained ...
185. The Great Comet Venus [Journals] [Aeon]
... (winged star, soul-bird, bright feathers, feathered headdress, shining bird's tail); cosmic serpent, dragon, or similar monster. The remaining general hieroglyphs for the comet could be counted on the fingers of your second hand! They include: a sword, a bundle of grass or straw (whisk, broom), or a spiraling rope (cord, tie, or knot). At what point, then, does a "coincidence" or seemingly irrational use of language (comet-words or glyphs attached to Venus) become an anomaly worth pursuing? Forrest not only sidesteps the implications of parallel cometary images of Venus in other lands, he ignores the convergence of such ...
186. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... regarding universal themes, as fossils' which can shed light on the past. The Earth has three axes – geographical, figure (symmetry) and rotational and its surface might be disturbed by changes to the former two, while rotation of the core might be undisturbed. If the shape changes, then a Chandler Wobble' develops as a spiral motion of the poles as the Earth attempts to re-adjust all three axes. No outside force is required for a minor shape-change, as tectonic activity on the crust itself can achieve this and the wobble' produced would take 20-40 years to settle. If some larger disturbance occurs within the Earth, then it may result in a permanent pole ...
187. Symbols of an Ancient Sky: Slide Presentation & Notes by David Talbott [Journals] [Aeon]
... relationship can be seen in the Zuni Thunderbird, the Mesopotamian wheel of Shamash resting on its pillar, the Scandinavian bull of heaven, and the Hindu mountain of the moon. And what is the ankh but a stylized image of the pillar and crescent? [3 ] Or consider the famous eye of Horus. Couldn't it be the stylized spiraling eye of the goddess within Saturn, topped by the eyebrow crescent of Saturn at noon and the descending pupil, the axis mundi of Mars? States Talbott: "I have brashly claimed that no general motif of ancient myth, ritual or symbolism is left unexplained by the hypothesis; the model proposed can rightfully claim to be the first ...
188. Saturnists Play Marbles [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... North America I know of that practiced human sacrifice - but not anywhere near on the scale of the Aztecs - and only when Mars rose in the East. Funny thing is that there are polar configuration pictographs and petroglyphs all over the place - circle within a circle within a circle with radiating spokes (the radiant Venus) as well as spirals and crescents, so Saturn was presumably depicted in this, but I don't know of any evidence that the planet itself was worshipped by itself. Ev Adds: Typically the ancient sun-god in American Indian legends is to be identified with Saturn. In the Tsimshian tradition quoted by me in a recent Aeon, the sun-god is said to live ...
189. Relativity Corner [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of Engineers of Ireland, Feb. 1996. 10. Kelly, A.G ., Monograph No. 1, The Institution of Engineers of Ireland, 1995. Mag Ruith According to O'Rahilly [1 ] Mag Ruith is a euphemistic form of roth = a wheel (assumed to be a sun wheel, a spinning thing, or spiral, i.e . a descending meteorite, or comet). Mag Ruith had the ability, it is said, to dry up the rivers of Ireland and its loughs and he only had a single eye (he was disk shaped). He lived through 19 reigns and was an epithet of the god Ogma, a son ...
190. The Electro-Gravitic Theory of Celestial Motion & Cosmology, by Charles Ginenthal [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the rotational velocity of an electrically charged body, the greater its magnetic field'. A surprising omission in this book is any reference to the work of Dr C E R Bruce, whose papers have been published in many scientific and technological journals and in Pensée. He claimed that an immense galactic discharge and a diametrically opposite discharge forms the spiral arms of galaxies and this flow of electrical currents produces the galactic magnetic fields. Ginenthal quotes an article in New Scientist (ref 44 p. 15) by an unnamed writer, who evidently was also unaware of this. Bruce also claimed that the electromagnetic compression in the galactic discharge channels causes matter to condense into stars and that earlier ...
