TREE symbols bring us into touch with what is usually called "Tree worship" But this term is somewhat misleading Early man did not begin to worship trees simply because they seemed wonderful and mysterious. He did not feel and hear the poetry of nature like the poet Shelley who, musing amidst the ruins of Pompeii: Heard the autumnal leaves like light footfalls Of ...
42. The Evolution of the Cosmogonic Egg [Aeon Journal $]
... then have enabled terrestrial watchers not only to see Venus' ovoid form but also Saturn's oblateness. In this arrangement, needless to say, Saturn and its superimposed planetary satellites would not have appeared to be stationed at the celestial north pole but at the equatorial zenith. But then, through whatever forces, the planets "slipped" from this configuration and realigned themselves with their axes of rotation perpendicular to each other. As the "strung out" planets moved from the equatorial zenith to the celestial north pole they would have appeared to spiral around, thus accounting for Talbott's oft asserted view that the Saturnian deity "wandered for a time" before settling at the celestial pole. (60) The forces involved might also account for the "ejection" of the Venerian orb which was then seen to spiral out from the Saturnian center to take its position revolving "around" Saturn while still "below" it-- concerning which see more below. The above scenario is based on what was then a tentative but similar one involving Neptune, Saturn, Mars, ...
43. Driving Forces of the Milky Way [Thunderbolts Website]
... , infrared, ultraviolet and x-ray telescopes uncover intriguing images and data about the activity at the center of our home galaxy. It's a region full of mysteries, including the remnants of an unexplained hyper-explosion a few thousand years ago and flares that can brighten the central area by a factor of four in a few days or by a factor of two in forty minutes. From an electric universe point of view, this is the most active expression of the electric power of the Milky Way. This is where currents are focused from the spiral arms down into a tiny donut-shaped plasmoid. From the center of this plasmoid, electric currents spray out from the axis of the galaxy, then return along the spiral arms, inducing magnetic fields and lighting up the stars. The energy stored in the plasmoid is released in prodigious outbursts of high speed particles and radiation, heralded by explosive flares.____ Please check out Professor Don Scott's new book The Electric Sky. NOTE TO READERS: Wallace Thornhill, David Talbott, and Anthony Peratt will share the stage with ...
44. Unsolved Mysteries of a “Starburst” Galaxy [Thunderbolts Website]
... home updates news and views picture of the day resources team a role for you contact us picture of the day archive subject index subject abstracts The “starburst” galaxy NGC 1313. Image taken with the FORS instrument at ESO's Very Large Telescope. Credit: FORS/VLT Dec 11, 2006 Unsolved Mysteries of a “Starburst” Galaxy NGC 1313, a barred spiral galaxy in the southern sky near the Large Magellanic Cloud, displays five features that confound standard cosmological theories but conform with the Electric Universe. The most apparent features galaxy shown above are the ring of bright star-forming regions around the arms and the distorted, torn-up structure of the arms. The only mechanism available in standard theory to distort a galaxy and to initiate the gravitational collapse of gas clouds that leads to the emergence of stars is a collision with another galaxy. Especially in the case of a ring of star formation in the arms, the colliding galaxy must pass “directly through the disk” in order to produce the “pressure wave” in the target galaxy ’ s gas, like ...
45. The Bumblebee Learms to Fly [Aeon Journal $]
... studies conducted by Cambridge flight scientists through the utilization of a mechanical moth. Scientists, of course, had for long realized that the reason a bee can generate as much as three times more lift than the fixed wings of an airplane lay in the eddies generated around the insect's wings. But that is as far as they could go since they had been unable to determine which of several suggested mechanisms was the correct one. According to Ellington, the extra (hitherto missing) lift has now been found to be generated by a spiral vortex that travels along the leading edge of the bee's wing, from base to tip, during its downstroke. Because previous wind-tunnel studies of insect flight had looked at the subjects from the side, this spiral vortex had been missed. Ellington finally managed to visualize it by using the Flapper-- a computer-activated robotic hawkmoth that had been scaled-up ten-fold. According to Nature, the research in question could lead to spin-offs which would include more effective rotors and helicopter blades. I do hope that, this time, somebody will remember ...
46. Big Bang Distortions [Thunderbolts Website]
... distance. This results in an odd-looking universe where streams of galaxies appear to point at the Earth from every direction. We covered this type of distortion in the Oct 18th TPOD "Fingers of God". The third type of distortion that should appear by believing that galaxies and galaxy groups are farther away than they actually are is a distortion of size. The above image juxtaposes two galaxies at the sizes they would be if they are at their conventional redshift distances. The low-redshift M81 (inset) is one of the largest nearby spiral galaxies. The higher-redshift NGC 309 (large image), an otherwise normal-appearing spiral, has been distorted so much by assuming that it's at its redshift distance that it appears to swallow M81 in one of its arms. Like Ptolemy's epicycles, these distortions disappear when we refocus our vision to accept the way these galaxies are distributed as the more accurate measure of distance, and reject the "first guess" hypothesis that redshift equals distance that has dominated astronomy for 80 years.

47. Multiple Whirlwind Patterns [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 40: Jul-Aug 1985 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Multiple Whirlwind Patterns English meteorologists are spending some of the lazy summer days out in the countryside tracking down whirl wind patterns engraved on fields of wheat and other crops. One eyewitness account of the formation of a single spial pattern has been found. However, the multiple spiral patterns excite the most interest because of their geometric regularity. Between 1980 and 1984, eight quintuplet patterns have been found consisting of a large central circle and four smaller satellite circles. Triplets were also discovered. Although the origins of the multiplet patterns are still unexplained, some interesting generalizations have emerged: 1. The whirlwinds responsible for the flattened circles of crops have lifetimes of only a few seconds, whereas dust devils may persist for many minutes; 2. These whirlwinds seem to occur around evening time instead of during the heat of the day; and 3. They are all anticyclonic, while tornados are almost all cyclonic and true heat whirlwinds are ...
48. Did Jupiter Give Birth to Uranus & Neptune? [SIS Internet Digest $]
... of Uranus and Neptune were tossed out by Jupiter's and Saturn's gravity. In the simulations, the ejected planets went into highly chaotic orbits for a few hundred thousand years after which they settled down and gradually migrated to their present, nearly circular orbits. Stable orbits Another group of scientists, also writing in Nature, from the University of Toronto, have simulated how planets such as Jupiter may have formed in the first place. They found that gas and dust circling the early Sun that starts to accumulate to form a proto-Jupiter creates a spiral density pattern in the surrounding disk material. The proto-planet accretes mass rapidly through the spiral arms but when the planetary mass reaches four-to-five-times Jupiter's mass, the disk rapidly fragments into smaller proto-planets. Over hundreds of thousands, or millions of years the proto-Uranus and proto-Neptune would be flung outwards by the now smaller proto-Jupiter's gravity. Not too long ago, scientists regarded the orbits that the planets circle our Sun as being the ones they were born in. Now they are realising that this is not the case. Uranus and Neptune may have ...
49. Star Words [SIS Internet Digest $]
... star can be said to "STaRe" only because it is the sun god's central eye. When considering the origins of the word "catastrophe" and the meaning of the Greek strophe, it is inappropriate for the experts to ignore the connection of sacred dances to celestial phenomena, since all such ritual performances repeated critical junctures in the lives of GODS. The turning, twisting motion (strophe) of the prototypical star is legendary and is the basis of the global connection of this star, Venus, to the simple curl, spiral, and whorl. And speaking of the turning motion of Venus, if cataSTRophe is in fact connected to the same root as STaR, then so must the word apoSTRophe, since it expresses the same Greek root. The expected connection is definitely there. Aphrodite (Venus) was CALLED Apostrophia. A loose counterpart would be the Latin Venus as Verticordia --the turning or whirling heart. Our apostrophe is a mark or STRoke made with a STRophe or turning motion. Its form is virtually identical to the more elementary forms of the ...
50. New Evidence for Quasar Ejection [Thunderbolts Website]
... for non-cosmological redshifts, he was shunned by mainstream astronomy. Over the years, several lines of evidence were found that question the assumption that redshift equals distance. Arp and his colleagues amassed a large catalogue of systems that show physical associations between objects of differing redshifts. These associations indicated that quasar pairs often are ejected in opposite directions from the nuclei of active galaxies. Tifft, Burbidge, and Bell (among others) found evidence of periodicities in the values of redshift, and both Arp and Russell showed evidence of intrinsic redshift in spiral galaxies. The overdensity of quasars or quasi-stellar objects (QSOs) around nearby galaxies has long been known and is currently assumed to be the result of gravitational lensing of highly redshifted QSOs. Halton Arp proposed a different model that assumes QSOs to be ejected from the active nucleus of their parent galaxy. The redshift of the ejected QSO would then be an indication of it ’ s age since ejection, the higher the redshift the younger the object.
