Three interesting articles in Nature LX:
1) Sir Norman Lockyer, "On Some Recent Advances in Spectrum Analysis Relating
to Inorganic and Organic Evolution", Nature LX, 103-108 (June 1, 1899):
That evolution tells us that each kind of plant and animal was not specially created,
but that successive changes of form were brought about by natural causes, and that the
march of these forms was from the more simple to the more complex. Organic evolution,
may be defined as the production of new organic forms from others more or less unlike
themselves; so that all the present plants and animals are the descenddants, through
a long series of modifications or transformations, or both, of a limited number of an
ancient simpler type... It therefore looks very much as if we can really go back as far
as these very early stages of life on our planet to apply those lines of Tennyson:
"So careful of the type she seems,
So careless of the single life."

The marvellous molecular complexity of the so-called simple cell may be gathered
from the following formulae for hemoglobin:

2) Sir William Thomson, (Lord Kelvin) "Blue Ray of Sunrise over Mont Blanc"
Nature LX, 411 (August 31, 1899),
Looking out a 5 o'clock this morning from a balcony of this hotel, 1545 metres above sea-level, and about 68 kilometres W. 18o S. from Mont Blanc, I had a magnificent view of Alpine range of Switzerland, Savoy, and Dauphiné; perfectly clear and sharp on the morning twilight sky... I therefore resolved to watch an hour till sunrise, and was amply rewarded by all the splendours I saw... a brilliant half-moon nearly overhead was overpowered by sunlight streaming upwards from beyond the mountains. A little later, beams of sunlight and shadows of distant mountains converged clearly to a point deep under the very summit of Mont Blanc. In the course of five or ten minutes I was able to watch the point of convergence travelling obliquely upwards till in an instant I saw a blue light against the sky on the southern profile of Mont Blanc; which, in less than the one-twentieth of a second became dazzlingly white, like a brilliant electric arc-light. I had no dark glass at hand, so I could not any longer watch the rising sun. — Kelvin, Hotel du Mont-Revard, above Aix-les-Bains, August 27, 1899.
3) William J. S. Lockyer, "Dark Lightning Flashes"
Nature LX, 570-574 (Oct. 12, 1899):
Is there such a phenomenon as dark lightning? If dark flashes do really occur, then they
should probably be both seen and photographed, and the former, one would think, would be
the more simple way of recording them... Let us turn now to photography, and see what
evidence we can gather from photographs of flashes taken during thunderstorms... I will
now describe photographs I secured during the storm that passed over Westgate-on-Sea, Thanet, during the night of August 5, 1899. All show dark as well as bright flashes. An enlargement of this flash in Fig. 4 is shown in Fig. 5. Most interesting, is the reversal, which extends nearly the whole way up the centre— that is, the dark flash has along its centre a bright core... We thus see that actual photographs of lightning bear out what we should expect from laboratory experiments, and we must therefore answer in the negative the question asked in the first line of this article. Dark lightning flashes therefore do not exist in nature, but their appearances on photos are due to some chemical action which takes place in the gelatine film. (Also in Windsor Magazine, Vol. 15, No. 3, February 1902)
88) Volume 60 of Science (1924)— a Weekly Journal devoted
to the Advancement of Science was published by
The Science Press, New York (July-December 1924), pp. 1-598
Three interesting articles in this volume:
1) Alexander Forbes, "Analyzed Sound" in Nature
Science LX, 5-7 (July 4, 1924)
While engaged in the earliest mining researches on Lake Superior in 1844, a very curious instance of analyzed sounds was observed by F. W. Davis and myself [Charles Thomas Jackson]— I was a melodious and solemn dirge in slow music like that I have sometimes heard in European cathedrals... I found that it corresponded to the rote of the waves on the pebbly shore. The vibration of the air produced by the constantly recurring surges was analyzed by the forest and we stood where we heard it in a focus of the echo... Thus it appears that when sounds mingled with discords traverse the forest, the foliage absorbs all the discordant notes and the reflected and returned sounds are all pure liquid harmonies... On July 27, 1903, while on a journey through the Bighorn Canyon in Southern Monatana by boat... I heard a howl, beginning at a high pitch and sweeping down into the bass clef. I stopped short and looked around; I coud hear nothing but the roar of the river. I took a step backward and the howl reversed itself, starting low and rising to a high pitch. I then moved back and forth over the same ground and found the noise to be no more than the roar of the river, rising and falling like a siren. It seems the rocks around me formed a sort of sounding board, treating the roar as a prism treats sunlight, placing the tones according to their pitch, the high in one place and the low in another... Dr. Edward W. Emerson called attention to a passage in the poem "May Day" by his father R. W. Emerson, which clearly was suggested in part by the observations of Dr. Charles Thomas Jackson:
None can tell how sweet,
How virtuous, the morning air;
Every accent vibrates well;
Not alone the wood-bird's call,
Or shouting boys that chase their ball,
Pass the height of minstrel skill,
But the ploughman's thoughtless cry,
Lowing oxen, sheep that bleat,
And the joiner's hammer-beat,
Softened are above their will,
Take tones from groves they wandered through
Or flutes which passing angels blew.
All grating discords melt,
No dissonant note is dealt,
And though thy voice be shrill
Like rasping file on steel,
Such is the temper of the air,
Echo waits with art and care,
And will the faults of song repair.
So by remote Superior Lake,
And by resounding Mackinac,
When northern storms the forest shake,
And billows on the long beach break,
The artful Air will separate
Note by note all sounds that grate,
Smothering in her ample breast
All but godlike words,
Reporting to the happy ear
Only purified accords.
Strangely wrought from barking waves,
Soft music daunts the Indian braves,—
Convent-chanting which the child
Hears pealing from the panther's cave
And the impenetrable wild.

2) Sir W. H. Bragg, "The Analysis of Crystal Structure by X-Rays"
Science LX, 139-149 (July 31, 1924)
The X-ray methods have provided an unexpected and welcome entrance. They tell us directly the number of molecules in the crystal unit cell, and the mode of their arrangement with such determination of lengths and angles as are required to define the mode of arrangement in full. By this comparison we hope in the end to determine the position of every atom, and explain its influence through its nature and position upon the properties of the substance.
3) A. A. Michelson, "Preliminary Measurement of the Velocity of Light"
Science LX, 391-392 (October 31, 1924)
The mean of the various measurements thus far attempted is 186,336 miles per second,
with an uncertainty of 20 or 30 miles... The result of eight independent observations
in the present preliminary work is, for the velocity of light in vacuo, 299,820 km/sec.

90) 60 Symbolism: The number of time in minutes and seconds. It is a 'round number'
as three score. It frequently occurs in sagas. In Egypt 60 represents longevity.
It is the Chinese cyclic number, a 'cycle of 60', in the West called a 'cycle of Cathay'.
By the revolving interaction of the Ten Celestial Stems (kan) and Twelve Terrestrial
Branches (chih), a cycle becomes complete in all its combinations in the 60th year;
it is then repeated. Six cycles approximately comprise a tropical year.

94) The Chinese calendar operates according to cycles of 60 years, beginning in 2637 BC,
when the legendary Yellow Emperor Huangti invented it
in the 61st year of his reign. However, others prefer to start the count with the first year
of his reign in 2697 BCE. Since these years are 60 years apart, it follows that 1984 was
the first year of either the 78th or 79th 60-year cycle. Using this as a starting point,
Chinese New Year in 2000 marks the beginning of the Chinese year 4637 or 4697.

new foes to tug with: at Twenty I tried to vex my elders,
past Sixty it's the young whom I hope to bother."

Bald and fat and full of sin,
Cold I sit and loud the cistern,

216) Chapter 60 in the First Book of Pistis Sophia (circa 150 A.D.):
Jesus however continued with the discourse: "... but I was above the Chaos— another light-power also came forth from me, in order to help the Pistis Sophia. And the light-power which came forth from the height through the First Mystery came down upon the light-power which came forth from me. And they met one another and became a great outpouring of light." Now when Jesus had said these things to his disciples he said: "Do you understand the manner in which I am speaking with you?" Mariam sprang up, she said: "My Lord, I understand what thou dost say. Concerning the interpretation of these words, thy light-power once prophesied through David in the 84th Psalm, saying:
10. 'Mercy and truth have met one another, and righteousness and peace have kissed one another.
11. Truth has sprouted from the earth and righteousness has looked forth from heaven.'
Now mercy is the light-power which came forth through the First Mystery, for the First Mystery, heard the Pistis Sophia, and had mercy on her in all her afflictions. Truth, on the other hand, is the power which came forth from thee, because thou didst fulfill the truth that thou shouldst save her (the Pistis Sophia) from the Chaos. And furthermore, righteousness is the power which came forth through the First Mystery, which will guide the Pistis Sophia. And again peace is the power which came forth from thee, because it will go into the emanations of the Authades and take away from them the lights which they took from the Pistis Sophia; that is, thou dost gather them within the Sophia and dost make them to be at peace with her power.
Truth, on the other hand, is the power which came forth from thee when thou wast in the lower places of the Chaos. Concerning this, thy power spoke through David thus: 'Truth has sprouted from the earth', because thou wast in the lower places of the Chaos. Righteousness, on the other hand, which looked forth from heaven, is the power which came forth from the height, through the First Mystery, and which entered into the Sophia.".
Pistis Sophia, Chapter 60
(Translated by Violet MacDermott, Edited by Carl Schmidt,
Nag Hammadi Studies, IX: Pistis Sophia, E. J. Brill, Leiden, 1978, pp. 237-241)
217) In Chapter 60 of The Aquarian Gospel, Jesus addresses the seven sages and goes to Galilee.
6. The words I speak are not my own; they are the words of him whose will I do.
17. And in the name of God, our Father-God, the kingdom of the soul
shall be established on the seven hills.
18. And all the peoples, tribes and tongues of earth shall enter in.
19. The Prince of Peace will take his seat upon the throne of power;
the Triune God will then be All in All.
20. And all the sages said, Amen.
21. And Jesus went his way, and after many days, he reached Jerusalem;
and then he sought his home in Galilee.
