  1. This was my first guess when new to the subject. The Wikipedia entry for Woolly Mammoth has another reason for their continued existence in the region. I'm sure that specimens have been found which show that they existed there during all the months of the year.
  2. The excellent results of MOND predictions with satellite dwarf galaxies around Andromeda show that the closer the dwarf galaxy is to the host galaxy, Andromeda, the greater the influence of the host: I would like to speculate that it is the closeness of the dwarf galaxy to the plane of rotation of the host which is also a critical factor. Perhaps the modification to Newton's gravity should be the consideration of an additional force of attraction on the plane of rotation of heavenly bodies. This tallies very nicely with another speculation I have that the Earth's 100ky glacial cycle is in sync with the Earth's inclination cycle, the up and down movement, about Jupiter's orbtal plane.
  3. Think about Siberia at the present time. In today's climate there wouldn't be enough food to support vast herds of woolly mammoth, aurochs, cave lion, cave bear, Cave hyena, Irish elk, giant polar bears, woolly rhinoceros, Merck's rhinoceros, narrow-nosed rhinoceros, and Elasmotherium. So why would there be more food during glacial tiimes?
  4. Okay, my apologies, this is different to my previous forum. I'll make sure I start speculative threads myself for these kind of discussions.
  5. The ability for large herds of megafauna to thrive during the Ice Age period is a long standing enigma. How could such huge numbers of large mammals have found enough food to keep them warm and healthy during the globally much cooler times of the Ice Age? I have a unique solution below. I do have a speculation for how the Earth's 100ky inclination cycle relative to Jupiter's orbital plane can increase ocean tidal strength, but I want to keep that out of the conversation at present. The inclination cycle is the up and down movement in the Earth's orbit. (i) The earth's 100ky inclination cycle is reponsible for an increase in ocean tidal strength. (ii) These extra bottom ocean currents bring an abundance of nutrients to the surface. (iii) Algae blooms dominate the ocean surfaces. (iv) The algae life-cycle leads to bacteria released into the atmoshere. (v) Bioprecipitation of rain-making bacteria leads to an increase in rainfall. (vi) An increase in rainfall leads to less cloud cover overall. (vii) Less cloud cover means more sunshine. (viii) More rainfall and sunshine leads to more and bigger flora. (ix) 'Megaflora' allows megafauna to flourish. The Problems with Milankovitch Current Ice Age Theory The Wikipedia entry describes a number of major problems with solar-only forcing. Put simply, the sun simply isn’t strong enough to create the heat required to change from an interglacial to a glacial age and vice versa due to the earth moving closer and further away in its non-circular orbit. I propose that this can be reconciled by the hypothesis of additional tidal currents during the earth’s 3-dimensional transition across the Jupiter’s orbital plane, it's inclination cycle. These ocean and atmospheric currents are the trigger for ice age conditions to occur. They move heat and precipitation away from the equatorial regions to the polar regions. It’s the extra precipitation which is needed for the polar region snow covering to be thick enough so as not to melt away in the summer months. The Antarctic landmass and Greenland allow for this settling of snow and ice which brings global cooling which then leads to Arctic sea ice to forming more readily. This then provides the mechanism of the albedo feedback effect, where the sun’s rays are reflected back into space, giving overall global cooling. This scenario then continues until the interglacial period reverses the effect, where the extra tidal forces are lost. Yet another concern with the current sunlight-only explanation is that of the so called ‘400,000 year problem’. This can be reconciled with an underlying 200,000 year cycle depending on whether the earth is descending or ascending through Jupiter’s orbital plane coinciding with the landmass south pole or ocean basin north pole. If the northern hemisphere is rising into the sun’s plane then higher tidal energy will allow ocean currents to enter the cold polar basin, shifting the albedo effect of sea ice and giving a quick end to any previous ice age. If the southern hemisphere descends into Jupiter’s orbital plane on the next cycle, then this landmass would provide a stable platform for rapid glaciation formation, giving a sudden global cooling and quick entry into a glacial period. Please be as kind as you can when posting. Thank you. Woolly mammoth vs mastodon
  6. A unidirectional flow of air for a flying insect would be highly advantageous, analogous to the unique evolutionary system of the birds:
  7. Very interesting articles which are very similar to my own conclusions. Thanks for sharing.
  8. You're not giving evolution the respect it deserves. You're statement "As such a large tube straight through an insect's body would not function effectively to deliver air to cells" is unvalidated guesswork. The true experts are willing to admit that the evidence is scant on the "oxygen-limitation" hypothesis: What Keeps Bugs from Being Bigger? Is it too much to consider the possiblity of non-leg-segmented evolution in some flying insects? Reported bizarre flying entities are reported with thick legs and almost humanoid in appearance. This fits with the giant bug hypothesis and the respect for evolution and the fact that we don't know everything. Strange but true? This seems slightly illogical imv. With the necessary oxygen intake, the energy-demand for flight isn't an issue. It would be highly advantageous for an insect species to be of giant size. No more fear from birds. It would be the other way round.
  9. (i) Not necessarily beetles no, especially due to their high chitin content which would have been fossilised and found potentially. (ii) Hundreds of miles an hour with bioluminescence, yes (iiI) Because they would have evolved to do so. Humans have a blood pressure issue I believe. (iv) They breed in remote places we can't get to. Funnily enough, there is a case of bizarre giant insect larvae: The Creature of the Dump You've missed the point entirely. I'm speculating that non-deadend trachea tubes have evolved in some insects. So my air-jet hypothesis does have some validity. ........................................................................................... I searched on-line for more worm-like possible giant bug larvae and happened across this Look Out for the Tatzelwurm “Worm with Claws” and found this tentative connection with insescts: Why Is Insect Blood Green Or Yellow? This is an alleged photo of one:
  10. My model is based on fundamental physics, akin to the founding principles of FQXi - Foundational Questions Institute. We don't need to throw away everything that we have achieved in physics so far. Mathematics will still have a place in the new world. What it will be able to do is provide a new perspective on the flyby anomaly and continue to be integrated into maintream science.
  11. Yes, based on the mechanical imagery of a common sense view of how a force of attraction can be conveyed from one object to another within a vacuum. It is the imagery of an emitted spinning Archimedes screw particle. If a right-hand spinning thread particle interacts with another, then a small force of attraction due to it's spin will be produced. In the picture shown as an analogy, the entire Archimedes screw would be emitted to the bottom right of the screen. When it interacts with another helical object, the direction of the force will be represented by the direction of the red ball.
  12. Without doing any searches, wouldn't a fast flying large insect be able to force air down long tracheal tubes? This also fits with eyewitness observations of entities which suddenly spring from the earth's surface into the air with tremendous speed. Also, it could have evolved a mixture of short and long trachea tubes for a combination of fast flight and some slow speed flight, but not perhaps an inbetween speed. Just two possible speed settings would also fit with eyewitness observations.
  13. As I stated earlier; " at 30,000ft an airliner experiences a 1.6g acceleration in Clear Air Turbulence which I'm attributing to this force. The spacecraft Juno will be coming as close as 514 Kilometers. I'm assuming a narrow angle of divergence for the fluid exotic matter force particles. There was a case of a water depression of just 20 feet across in the Caribbean, which stretched across the sea in both directions. The occupants said that when they entered, they were thrown forward onto the bottom and the lady hurt her wrist. This I estimated to be around a 1.6g force acting on the fluids of the body. The aircraft in CAT typically jolt and then jolt again around 10 seconds afterwards. I've done the calculations before for an ultra rough appoximation on the beam width, but I'm not inclined to do it again." It's a tricky calculation because I'm assuming the force acts on the fluids of the airliner and not the solid frame. So the amount of fuel on board is critical and the human passengers, being largly fluid based, can even be considered. The data recorded 1.6g is an assumed result of moving the aircraft frame as well. This implies a greater than 1.6g force acting on the fluids. The divergence of the cone of influence is the next factor to be considered. The 'fluid force' is over 1.6g at 30,000ft or 9150m (~1km) but what is it at 500 times this distance above the surface? If from a point source, then the force particles emitted can be considered travelling in a straight, so the inverse square law still applies. But the source of the emissions are considered to be from the hypothesised fluid exotic matter surrounding the 360mile diameter inner innermost core. The nature of the emissions are considered to be neutron-neutron collisions, analogous to kilonova events, due to the similarity of gamma ray flashes also recorded from Earth. Maybe the emissions are due to the formation of eddies in the fluid neutron matter around the equatorial regions? If so, then this localises the source towards a point source. However, there is also the potential for a source which isn't point-like, but spread across the 360 mile surface. This makes an estimate something tending towards guesswork. My 1g guesstimate is more likely to an upper figure with a shallow cone of particle divergence, whilst a lower figure would be expected from a more point-like imagery. I suspect that that you're going to be very unimpressed by this analysis, but I'm banking on the signature left-handed deviation to be enough to bring the hypothesis into the spotlight. If someone else can make a better prediction that turns out to be more accurate than my own, then I wish them well with no hard feelings.
