31. Thoth Vol. III, No. 16 Dec 1, 1999 [Thoth Website]
... proto-language but from radically new conditions, needs and context, and arose in the context of a crucially dramatic shared experience.---- THE ABSURDITY OF NEUTRON STARS By Wal Thornhill Nowhere is the gravitational paradigm of cosmology shown to exhibit more strangeness than in compact high energy phenomena in deep space. A report in the journal Nature of 15 November proposes that a recently discovered star "is made of an exotic stuff called 'strange matter', never yet seen on Earth". In other words, it may be a "strange star". This bizarre suggestion comes out of the mathematics describing stars that generate rapid pulses of radiation, commonly called "pulsars". The x-ray pulses are thought to be due to a rotating beam of x-rays that flashes toward the Earth once per revolution like a cosmic lighthouse. See picture at: http://www.holoscience.com/views/view_strange.htm This seemingly simple model began to show signs of strain many years ago when the first millisecond pulsar was discovered. In order to flash (rotate) several times a second a ...
32. Strange Snow Sculptures [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 133: JAN-FEB 2001 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Strange Snow Sculptures The most familiar snowflakes are those feathery, six-armed dendritic crystals. However, snow sometimes falls as needles and plates. In GWP3 in Tornados, Dark Days..., we also catalog three observations of conical snow. These conical forms seem to be aggregates of tapered needles of ice. However, none of the foregoing shapes can surpass in strangeness the "snowflake" in the accompanying illustration. Here we see the hexagonal symmetry retained in column form and again in the plates at each end of the icy dumbbell. What those peculiar iceworms projecting from the plates are is anyone's guess. (Kaiser, Jocelyn; "Snow Up Close," Science, 289:503, 2000. Comment. It is difficult enough to explain the formation of the common six-armed flakes; the worm-terminated dumbbells are even more puzzling. What sort of mechanism in the atmosphere can scuplt such complex shapes in prodigious quantities? ...
33. Saturn Moon Mystery Continues [SIS Internet Digest $]
... to exaggerate. However, there is definitely something interesting happening with Prometheus being found in a very different place than it was at the time of Voyager, and with the clumps/arcs found around the F ring, but it's too early to say what has happened to cause those. From: Amara Graps, email@example.com Date: Tue. 17 Oct 1995 01:23:14 GMT Jim Hardenbrook, firstname.lastname@example.org writes:> Weird shaped, weren't there when voyager passed through Well the data so far is pretty strange. The May HST observations show Saturn "objects" (moons, ring arcs/clumps) that the August HST observations don't see, and vice versa. But the Saturn Ring Plane crossing was observed this year from not only HST, but from Spain, Chile, Mauna, Pic du Midi, and many other observatories, and people are just now beginning to compare notes. Some of the strange things so far coming out of the Saturn Ring Plane Crossing are (I heard 6 hours of ring talks last week at ...

... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 50: Mar-Apr 1987 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Strange Patterns In Another Oceanic Habitat The sea-floor vents and their unique assemblages of animals are just beginning to be explored. "Perhaps the most intriguing biological mystery in the vent area, however, was the finding of thousands of highly symmetric, Chinese-checkerboard-like patterns on the seafloor, which were first photographed several years ago. [P.Rona thinks the patterns may be either an animal itself or the burrows made by an animal. He says the patterns are 'dead ringers for a 70million-year-old...trace fossil that is exposed in the Alps." (Weisburd, Stefi; "Hydrothermal Discoveries from the Deep," Science News, 130:389, 1986.)

36. Curious Phenomena in Venezuala [Science Frontiers Website]
... Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Curious Phenomena in Venezuala The description of a truly remarkable phenomenon recently appeared on Scientific American's web page. It also surfaced in an article by G.D. Kaswell in the journal Infinite Energy. These re-appearances in the current literature of this well-known anecdote allow us to revisit it here. It is well worth repeating, even though many anomalists have had it in their collections for decades. (In fact we recorded it in 1974 in vol. G1 of Strange Phenomena .) As you read the following quotation from an 1886 issue of Scientific American, remember that the event described occurred almost a decade before the discoveries of X-rays and radioactivity. Although ball lightning was recognized in 1886, the first UFO flap was still 70 years in the future! The following brief account of a recent strange meteorological occurrence may be of interest to your readers as an addition to the list of electrical eccentricities: During the night of the 24th of October last [1886, which was rainy and tempestuous, ...
37. Those Strange Antarctic Fishes [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 94: Jul-Aug 1994 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Those Strange Antarctic Fishes A representative Notothenioid fish from Antarctic waters. (From: Eastman, Joseph T,; Antarctic Fish Biology, San Diego, 1993.) In the frigid waters ringing the continent of Antarctica live approximately 275 species of fishes, 95 of which are assigned to the suborder Notothenioidei. This particular group of fishes is renowned for its unusual adaptations, as outlined below by D. Policansky: "Some of them have glycoprotein antifreezes in their blood, some have no hemoglobin, some have so small a temperature tolerance that they die at temperatures above 4 C, some are neutrally buoyant despite lacking swim bladders, and some live as deep as 2950 meters. The suborder has no known fossils, largely because no bony feature-- indeed, no single character of any sort-- can be used to define it. How did these animals arrive there, what are their ancestors, how do they ...
38. Fireballs North of Bangkok [Aeon Journal $]
... lightning, have intrigued, and beleaguered, man for untold centuries. Once dismissed by scientists as nothing more than the hallucinations of panic-driven individuals, the phenomenon has more recently received a decorum of scientific interest. Attempted explanations, however, have varied. No one seems to know what they really are or why they act, or react, the way they do. A series of incidents that took place in a village north of Bangkok back in October of 1996 did nothing to dispel the mystery. For one thing, it seems strange that such occurrences always seem to favor remote localities. Not that there weren't any witnesses. On the contrary, the events were observed by hundreds of residents. Not only was that a fair-sized audience, it was also a participating one. A local administrative officer was sure that the reported occurrences involved nothing more than pranks played by mischievous boys on factory girls. But, no, when he went to the village to investigate, he himself became a witness to the phenomenon. Described as about the size of volleyballs, the ...
39. Problems for Rohl's New Chronology [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... (as in Egypt) a very early start to civilisation, and would have us believe that the Akkadians and Sumerians had built great cultures in the 3rd millennium BC. But this creates as many problems in Mesopotamia as the Old Kingdom does in Egypt. Ziggurat building: 1. How is it that the Assyrians of the 8th and 7th centuries, and the neo-Chaldaeans of the same period, once again began to erect ziggurats, just as their ancestors in Sumer and Akkad had done almost two thousand years earlier? 2. This strange taste for reviving the ancient past looks all the more strange when it is compared to the contemporary taste in 8th and 7th century Egypt for reviving the styles of the Pyramid Age. How does the New Chronology explain this? Identity of the Chaldaeans: 1. The Assyrians of the Empire described the Chaldaeans as inhabiting 820 walled and unwalled cities in southern Mesopotamia; yet of all these not a single stone or inscription has been found. However, in the area designated as the land of the Chaldaeans, archaeologists have discovered a ...
40. First Yeti Photos? [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 51: May-Jun 1987 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects First yeti photos? A.B. Wooldridge claims that he observed and photographed a yeti in the Himalayas in March 1986. Travelling alone toward Hemkund, at about 11,200 feet, in an area with steep wooded slopes, he encountered strange 10-inch tracks, which he duly photographed. Pushing on, he was crossing an exposed snow slope at 13,000 feet, when his run was halted by a wet snow avalanche. Moving closer to the avalanche to assess the snow's stability, he again saw the strange tracks heading across the slope to a small bush. "Behind the bush stood an erect entity over 6 feet tall. The figure, of general human proportions and stance, remained immobile, seemingly looking down the slope. 'The head was large and squarish, and the whole body appeared to be covered with dark hair.'" Wooldridge quickly snapped several photographs. He then advanced to with-in 500 feet of ...
