71. The Polar Column: A Physical Model of Myth [Journals] [Aeon]
... one approached ever higher latitudes, gentle westerly winds would have turned into increasingly violent southwesterly gales. Thunderstorm activity would have increased until ultimately, beyond the point of no return, hurricane winds would have swept from a more southerly direction to carry everything in their path toward the pole at the very reaches of this tidal mountain. In their northward spiral, these winds would have heaped up mountains of dust and debris over land, with mountainous groundswells over the oceans, focusing on a rendezvous at the polar nexus. Aided by coriolis effects with the counterclockwise rotation of the Earth, the massed inertia which carried this atmospheric tsunami toward a convergence in the polar region would continue to carry it ...
72. The Celestial Ship of North Vol. I [Books]
... and from this circumstance "Nineveh received the name Nin' ophi, i. e., "Nine Serpents." There are other monuments of ancient origin erected to reveal and perpetuate knowledge of the penicyclosical motion of the Poles blended with the latitude of the different countries. Every four degrees of latitude represented a coil, or spiral, called a serpent, because of the two slow motions of the Poles. "The Serpent round the Solar-fire-place- the Solstice, or the Pole, is the pericyclosical figure described by the pole of the ecliptic round the pole of the earth; which is known to form a volute, increasing in size every 25,000 ( ...
73. Three Views on Orbital Circularisation [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... computer showed that gravitational deflections would not produce the present Solar System arrangement. The only possible mechanism seems to be electrical charge and discharge characteristics and for this the pressure ionisation process in the interior of large planets is apparently required, producing an erratic charged and incandescent cosmic body at rare intervals. The most recent one was ejected from Jupiter, spiralling in and finally colliding with Venus. It would have been a relatively small object, because on this basis Venus shows little sign of any major disturbance apart from surface heating and reduction of the rate of spin. Of course, this hypothesis will be tested by further computer studies in the near future. Eric W. Crew, Broxbourne ...
74. Making Sense of Astronomy and Geology by Dirk Bontes (Book Review). C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2002:1 (Jul 2002) Home | Issue Contents Book Review Making Sense of Astronomy and Geology by Dirk Bontes 3rd edition, Amsterdam, Sept. 2000 Hardcover 100 Dutch guilders+ shipping, metal/or plastic spiral bound version 70/60 Dutch guilders+ shipping from email@example.com David Salkeld The rich diversity of papers presented at a conference on astrophysics might be published as a book without Introduction or Conclusion. Making Sense of Astronomy and Geology (MSAG) is that sort of book, with two important differences: two of the papers' - the book's 25 chapters - are from a conference ...
... that the Babylonians, Phoenicians, and early Druids of Britain among the ancient races of mankind were well aware of these principles. They afford the true explanation of many engraved volcanic stones found mainly in Scotland, though also in Ireland and the Isle of Man, and as depicted on ancient coins of Macedonia, Corinth, and Britain, of spiral celestial forms, almost invariably represented in three spiral circles or ellipses. They commonly enter at a point and complete these circles to a centre. Usually these spirals, also called" cup marks" by archaeologists who can make nothing of them, are placed in conjunction with symbols of the constellations, often Pegasus or Capricornus, sometimes with ...
... . The resistance which they thus experience causes them to be retarded; this retardation causes them to move more slowly than is in accordance with their masses and distances from the Sun; the solar gravitation therefore pulls the planets farther inward. Hence their paths cannot be re-entering curves, ellipses or circles, but must be inward tending elliptical or circular spirals. The pitch' of these spirals, or speed of involution, will naturally be individual for every planet. It is obvious that a smaller body will feel the medium resistance more than a bigger one, for the smaller a body is, the larger is its resistance-encountering surface in proportion to its resistance-opposing mass. Further, the lower ...
77. Thoth Vol III, No. 14: Nov 1, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... of "suspended" motion, seeming to hang in space in defiance of gravity. And a fourth mode could be the "flat" rotation profiles of galaxies. These various modes are present in the force-free filaments Alfven described in the 1963 reedition of Cosmic Electrodynamics: Charges at the center of a filament move along the axis, generating a spiral magnetic field at the outside. Charges on the outside, following that field, "orbit" around the center, creating the linear field along which the core charges flow. Charges intermediate in the filament follow proportionately- stretched helixes. Scaling up a lab-sized filament to the dimensions of a galactic spiral arm would suggest similar motions could occur ...
78. Redshift Anomalies [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... of redshift anomalies that Halton Arp discusses in Quasars, Redshifts and Controversies. Look at http//antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html Here's the conventional explanation: "Four of the [five] galaxies show essentially the same redshift suggesting that they are at the same distance from us. The large bluish spiral below and left of center actually has a smeller redshift than the others, indicating it is much closer. It is probably a foreground object which happens to lie along the line of sight to the more distant galaxies. Of the four distant galaxies, three seem to be colliding, showing serious distortions due to gravitational tides. The fourth ...
79. The Opening of The Mouth Ritual - Part II [Journals] [Aeon]
... summarized as follows: the main events took place at night, the archaic "day." there are many references to the direction North. the colours white, green or blue, and red predominate. the funeral instruments are of meteoric iron, the Metal of Heaven. the mummy, wrapped in strips of white linen, evoked the spiral fila-mentary appearance of the polar co-lumn. coffins and statues were propped upright on mounds of sand facing south in imitation of the World Moun-tain and the Saturnian configuration as a colossal northern god. the purpose of the rite was to re-animate mummies just as the sun-god Osiris and the polar configuration itself was once returned to "normal." The ...
80. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... out jets of solar wind but, unlike on Earth, the flow of these indicates that the Sun's magnetic field lines are not concentrated at the poles as expected. The out-flowing solar wind acts as a barrier, keeping out of the Solar System many of the galactic cosmic rays with which the Universe is awash. Those which do get through spiral around the Sun's magnetic field lines. Other charged particles which originate from inside the Sun itself move too fast to have gained their high energies from heating; it is suggested that they gain their energy from an oscillating electric field while spiralling within strong magnetic fields.
