51. Prehistory and Earth Models [Books]
... slowly with respect to the center and are nearly twice as far out, would require perhaps 109 years for a single revolution around the galaxy. One may perhaps regard our galaxy as an average of the larger types. Now nebulae have been classified according to type [Ter Haar, 1950] as elliptic' (E0 to E7), spiral nebulae' (So, Sa, Sb, Sc), and barred spirals' (SBa, SBb, SBc). Authorities have supposed that these all bear a genetic relationship to each other and the scheme depicted in Fig. 3 has been proposed. Fig. 3 E0 nebulae are symmetrical, the eccentricity and flattening increasing in ...
... time as the formation of the material atoms. The interstellar medium not only slows down the translatory speed of bodies moving forward through it, but also acts similarly on bodies moving in it in orbital paths. Hence the orbits of all bodies revolving round a central mass must be, not re-entering circles or ellipses, but involuting circular or elliptic spirals, the resultant of the orbital motion, gravitation, and the resistance of the interstellar medium. Thus, finally, all planetary centres must become united with the centre of the system. Naturally, heavier bodies, having more momentum, will be less subject to this resistance than lighter ones, and bigger bodies less than smaller ones. ...
53. When Venus Was A Comet [Journals] [Kronos]
... A great comet was said to predict the fall of Moctezuma's empire. (Duran, 1951, fig. 24, courtesy of Editora Nacional, S.A .) . An example of cometary interest in the religious sphere can perhaps be seen in the ancient Mayan deity known as God K. Also called the Flare-god, from the strange spiralling coils which emanate from his head, God K was an important figure in the Mayan pantheon, appearing frequently on religious structures and monuments (see Figure 2). Indeed, some temple walls consist of little else than engravings of God K.(8 ) The standard opinion of scholars would have these flaring coils represent cigars, or ...

... with an increasing orientation to certain cardinal points. The tombs' were not simply mausoleums as they appeared to be in use for long periods of time yet finally contained few remains. Meaden suggested that they were representations in stone of the body of the goddess in which the deceased may be reborn. Of prime importance among goddess symbols were the spiral and the lozenge, the latter found on many pots from the Neolithic and Bronze ages. Spirals adorn the kerbstone' at Newgrange and a shadow is cast on its centre by a strategically placed megalith at midwinter. The main gallery of the monument is placed so that the midwinter sunrise causes a shaft of light to penetrate to the end ...
55. Mother Goddess and Warrior-Hero (Part One) [Journals] [Aeon]
... the clearing of a swamp or excavation of a lake, the clearing of noxious creatures from desert, sea or forest. I intend to summarize the various themes, including the catastrophic aspects, in the next article in this series.) 8. The sun god's [female] eye or heart was itself exhaled or externalized as his own spiraling lifebreath, producing the crescent-enclosure. In Egypt, the unequivocal identity of the sun god's central eye or heart as his visible "soul" is beyond dispute, though in one analysis after another Egyptologists fail to make the necessary distinctions, usually confusing the god's heart-soul with the god himself- despite that fact that it is a goddess and ...

... to wracking. It's all highly emotional: You feel sad and glad and mad. In Quasars, Redshifts, and Controversies, Arp showed that some quasars were connected to certain active galaxies. In Seeing Red, he adds evidence, more evidence, and much more evidence until nearly every object in the sky is connected, forming two extensive spiral structures. What once were clusters of galaxies and quasars sprinkled into the distance have become the interacting parts of a couple of cosmic swirls in our backyard. The Expanding Universe is cancelled. The Hubble Constant is trashed. The redshift- distance relationship is divorced. The Big Bang is blown away. And clusters of galaxies are illusions spawned ...

... and are not in any way to be construed as the proper values of the masses to be discussed. The only position being advanced is that the more massive the black hole, the more violent will be its behavior at instability; and the longer its period of instability, its nova or supernova. The first hypothetical singularity ejected by our spiral galactic black hole is of one million solar masses. Such a massive body must posses a commensurably large electromagnetic field and will rotate to instability relatively near the central galactic singularity. Because of their large masses, these bodies will eject much of their masses as quasars. The orientations of their poles will be at various angels at the central ...
59. Orbits of Core Material Ejected from Gaseous Planets [Journals] [Kronos]
... orbit following near encounters, making it impossible to formulate any general probable trend in the final position of an ejected core. The gravitational force between a cosmic body and the Sun is a constant times the product of the masses divided by the square of the separation distance. If this "constant" is gradually increased, the body will then spiral inwards and will only attain a stable orbit when the value of the parameter becomes constant again at a larger value. There is, of course, no question of changing the constant of gravitation, but the spiral-in effect is obtained if there is an electrical repulsion between the body and the Sun, which reduces the total attractive pull between ...
60. Science Frontiers [Journals] [SIS Review]
... serious problem in extragalactic astronomy today is the notorious "missing mass." There are rich clusters of galaxies where it is quite clear that the total gravitating mass is about ten times what we can account for in the conventional masses of the individual galaxies.... "The other missing mass problem shows up in the outer parts of spiral galaxies, where the rotational curves have clearly never heard of Kepler.... The rotation curves say there is a large amount of mass out there, [but] it emits no light by which we can study its nature. "The missing mass problem is extremely disquieting.... We are talking about 90 percent ...
