81. Galactic Space Charge and Stellar Energy [SIS C&C Review $]
... space acquires negative space potential. The stars, "grounded" to the medium that envelops them, acquire negative charge continuously until their potentials match the potentials of their immediate surroundings. IV Optical and radio astronomy provide the scale for the model. For simplicity, let us assume that the galaxy as a whole is a sphere 100,000 light-years, or say, 10^21 metres in diameter. Bruce provides a clue to the kind of electrical structure the model must incorporate. In his theory of cosmic electrical discharges, the spiral arms lying in the equatorial plane of the galaxy are discharge channels bound up in the proper magnetic fields of the electric currents coursing through them. Recent findings, unnecessary to enumerate here, tend to support this view (17). The clear implication of this explanation for the spiral arms of the galaxy is that there must exist a separation of positive and negative charges between the inner and outer parts of the galactic "atmosphere". Breakdown of the resulting electric field would give rise to the spiral-arm discharges. Let us suppose ...

... . You experience something you've never felt before. You wrack your brain trying to make sense of it. As you develop each successive idea, you decide it doesn't work. You go back 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 by a failure of imagination. (" What else but a Doppler effect," the blind astronomer said, "could redshift be?") It's understandable this could cause surprise or horror ...
83. The Electro-gravitic Theory of Celestial Motion [Aeon Journal $]
... distance measurement and the observed radio flux densities at Earth show that the total radio emission from the pulsars is of the order of the luminosity of the sun. .from10 6- 10 10 the surface brightness of the sun at all wave lengths." (25) Their magnetic fields are on the order on10 12 gauss. (26) With these colossal field strengths, pulsars interact with the galactic magnetosphere to produce immense rotational velocity. Galaxies There are various forms of galaxies and our milky way is but one form, the galactic spiral. Our galaxy rotates about its center in about 200 million years. There are literally billions of galaxies and they too rotate. The galactic electromagnetic fields are interacting with electromagnetic field of the Universe. Based on my earlier postulates and evidence, the brightest galaxies should rotate more rapidly than galaxies that are less luminous. This too is exactly the case. Quasars are among the brightest galactic like structures to be seen. They have diameters less than one light day or the size of the solar system. They contain energy that is ...

... creating the black area in the center. Surrounding the star is a tightly wound spiral-structured dust disk with two faint arms in the outer part of the disk. One of these arms reaches toward a binary star in the upper left of the image. NASA/ M. Clampin (STScI) et al./ ACS Science Team/ ESA This is the best image of a so-called accretion disk. It was produced on January 6 by a team headed by Mark Clampin of the Space Telescope Science Institute. The disk contains a tight spiral structure with two diffuse arms reaching outward like those of a spiral galaxy. It is excellent evidence for the electrical discharge nature of these disks since plasma physicists have successfully modelled galaxy formation and produced the classic spiral formation. That modelling requires electric currents flowing along the spiral arms. Notably it doesn't require invisible dark matter! The physicist, Peter Warlow, made the colorful comment in 1982 that we assume that planets are formed outside stars "for the 'obvious' reason- that's where we find them." However, "We ...
85. On Cosmic Electricity [Pensee]
... 1962, and by 1966 Maarten Schmidt was able to estimate their lifetimes as 10 6 to 10 7 years, or "possibly millions of years." Law 7: Aggregation of atmospheric matter That law of electrical discharges which has been of the greatest importance in cosmic atmospheric electrical discharges, and, as I had written to Ralph Juergens in 1965, has shaped the universe, is their property of aggregating atmospheric matter along the discharge channel, whether the discharge is the ignition spark of a car, the welding arc, or a spiral arm of a galaxy. When it operates, as it does whenever electrical breakdown occurs, one can forget about the force of gravitation, as every arc welder knows. This law was probably first brought to the notice of electrical engineers in a paper by Bellaschi of the American Westinghouse Company in 1937. His colleague R. C. Mason had shown that in an electrical discharge the conducting particles, ions and electrons, are caused by their movement in the discharge's own magnetic field to move inwards towards its axis, taking the ...
86. Redshift! [Aeon Journal $]
... discovered a mass-luminosity relationship not dissimilar to the curve found by Leavitt, where the mass of a class of normal stars to which our own Sun belongs is proportional to its absolute brightness. After considerable debate in the Royal Astronomical Society meetings he published an extensive account of his mass-luminosity law in 1926. But the cepheid variables were all giant stars of enormous luminosities, far greater than that of our own Sun, which turned out to be most helpful in determining tremendous intergalactic distances from a practical standpoint. The cepheids typically reside in the spiral arms of our own galaxy and in those of M31, and are among the younger members of the stellar community. And, to complicate the picture even further, somewhile later, circa 1952, Walter Baade of Palomar Observatory attempted to find another group of variables, the RR Lyrae, in the galaxy M31 (also known as the Andromeda galaxy from its position in that constellation), but he was unable to detect them at the limits of the 200-inch instrument. The RR Lyrae typically reside in the general vicinity of the ...
87. On the Nature of Cometary Symbolism [Kronos $]
... , perhaps even suggest a unified story, despite the differences in the hieroglyphic objects themselves. THE ENIGMATIC "CURL" Perhaps a world-threatening comet would have entered the historical record in two ways: first, through entirely literal pictures recording the comet's abstract form; and second, through certain mythically based symbols adapting the abstract form to various natural interpretations (i.e., as "beards", "torches", etc.). If there is a purely abstract form behind the above symbols, it is surely that of an elementary spiral, or "curl". And it happens that, in the Egyptian hieroglyphs (as around the world), just such an image looms as a glaring anomaly for the specialists. The Egyptian curl is prominently displayed upon the hieroglyphic Eye of Heaven and upon the celestial crown. The very same curl appears also in the hieroglyphs for"dignity" and "strength", but also for"soul" or "form" as well as several other concepts, all of them related to the celebrated attributes of the sun ...

... another, among other things. On earth, a lot of the heat gets transported by water. In evaporating, water absorbs heat and carries it upwards; on condensing, into clouds and rain, it lets the heat out. On Jupiter, the fact that other substances can do this too leads to more layers of cloud and more complicated weather. Such as the red spot. The new infra-red images from Galileo show that it is not a deep vortex of cloud as previously thought. Instead its top is a tangle of spiral arms. The gaps in between them reveal a large, fairly clear area below. And the spot is slightly raised near the middle. Dr Taylor thinks this means that the red spot is actually a relatively narrow, spinning column of material rising from the depths and being sprayed out over the ammonia clouds. At its edges, the material falls back down. Besides that, however, the mysteries persist. More data remain to be analysed. Dr Taylor hopes they will give some clues as to what the substance is ( ...
89. Erratic Events in the Solar System [SIS C&C Review $]
... positive charge on Cosbod and the Sun, so if its conclusions are considered reasonable and likely, it is another strong argument in favour of a stable charge on the Sun. If the charges on both Cosbod and the Sun are positive (negative charge being ruled out for reasons discussed later) then they would repel and reduce the value of the attractive gravitational force. The charge on Cosbod leaks away into space, causing the force of attraction to increase [7. The orbit traced out by the computer in the case was a spiral, bringing Cosbod nearer to the Sun and increasing its velocity. The spiral turns became progressively closer together, and when the charge was zero the orbit was nearly circular. By selecting suitable initial values of velocity and charge, obtained by a reverse action program, the final orbit became the same as that of Venus, with its present orbital velocity. This appears to explain the origin of Venus, its high temperature and other observed characteristics. Figure 1. Simplified diagram of ejection of core material from Jupiter Ejection of a stream ...
90. Nemesis for Evolutionary Gradualism? [SIS C&C Review $]
... a time scale of tens of millions of years' Possible explanations Pre-prints of this paper were rapidly circulated and discussed at a workshop organized by Luis Alvarez at Berkeley, California, on March 3rd and 4th, 1984. Possible explanations of the periodicity were soon suggested [11, 30, 53, 54. Several explanations centred on the possibility that the comets of the Solar System might be disrupted at regular intervals. Victor Clube and Bill Napier had previously suggested that comets would be captured by the Solar System as it passes through a spiral arm of the galaxy every 50-400 Myr [2, 55, 56 leading to a period of increased cometary activity during which several comets or cometary-derived asteroids [55-59 might collide with the Earth. However, the periodicity involved here would be greater than that indicated by the data of Raup and Sepkoski. David Raup and Jack Sepkoski claim to have detected a 26 Myr cycle of extinctions in the marine fossil record over the past 250 Myr. Michael Rampino and Richard Stothers think the periodicity is near 30 Myr. (Illust. J ...
