No presentation so far, but I think the legends of serpents, dragons, snakes etc all point to electrical and plasma phenomena. Trying to describe some witnessed event when their vocabularies could only relate to similar things in nature makes the interpretation difficult, but the evidence I see in the rivers would seem to confirm an electrical process occurring.Gary,
I forgot to ask a while back, how did your presentation to the Salish go?
Were the elders able to add any color to the lacustrine "sea serpent" stories, etc.?
Any other serpent-like entities ?
Just found this legend on the formation of Lake Baikal, a Thunderbird it seems:
http://www.bww.irk.ru/baikalorigin/baikallegends.htmlAnd among birds there was one, as big as a sturgeon. Its wings were huge and strong, and if it touched a tree, the tree would fall down with its roots up, and if it touched a rock the rock would fly to bits. The people were afraid of the bird, but they could not kill it as when it flew by, hot rays it eradiated, made hunters fall in a dead faint.
The correct equipment for analysing the river bed magnetism is what I need to figure out now, seems like I'll have to study up some. I did find this about a local Magnetic Observatory, so if I contact someone and explain what I'm attempting to do I might get some help or advice, or most likely they will just think I'm completely off my rocker! Electric currents in a river bed, really...
Good idea. Surely someone must have the equipment, or the money (I sure as heck don't!) to perform what should be quick and decisive experiments which could probably be carried out just about anywhere in the world where electrical energies seem to have altered the landscape.I send a e-mail to Dr. Robert Schoch
