1. The Ankh [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. VII No. 3 (Spring 1982) Home¦ Issue Contents The Ankh Dwardu Cardona Copyright (C) 1982 by Dwardu Cardona 1. Saturn I have recently shown why Velikovsky's identification of the Hindu god Shiva as a personification of the planet Jupiter should be abandoned in favor of an identification as Saturn.(1) I have also presented evidence which indicates that the original hermaphrodite deity of ancient man was not Venus, as Zvi Rix had earlier argued,(2) but, once again, Saturn.(3) As I have already pointed out, a good example of the androgynous Saturn can be seen in Indic images which depict Shiva, under the name Ardhanarisvara, as being half male and half female.(4) H. Baumann, in describing one of these images, drew attention to the sign depicted on the deity's genitals "which we can recognise as the ancient Egyptian-Coptic ankh hieroglyph, but in a horizontal position: [* !* image".(5) "The dividing line which we ...
2. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... March 31, 1964 Dear Dr. Velikovsky, Thank you very much for your letter of March 18, containing Dr. Federn ? s information. I have just finished a German essay called Mitteilung zur Sphinx. This could in my opinion fit into a chapter of the planned book The Great Fear, the Gorgon being nothing else than the head of Plinius ? terrible comet. The impression it made is reflected in the development of different art products, as e. g. the sphinx, the imago clipeata as well as the ankh, in all of these successions an undeniable trend to glorification is manifested, either by the picture of some pharaoh or, as in the case of the Coptic crux ansata or the christian imago clipeata by the emergence of the representation of Christ. The motif of the Gorgo does actually not only influence art where it sometimes finds its way into consciousness, it dominates our unconscious attitudes and drivings to a much wider degree than we realize. The connection of the ankh with some Schreck-Symbol becomes apparent in the cases only where the ankh ...
3. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 14: THE GODDESS GAIA [Quantavolution Website]
... result of electric shock. El and oth are Hebrew for 'god', and 'sign'; a lotus is tse'el. Augurs relied on watching birds and animals, especially small animals which would creep out of holes in the ground when an earthquake was imminent. The hoopoe with its erectile crest was particularly useful when its attention was drawn to earthquake light and changes in electromagnetic states. Its cry was thought to resemble the Greek opopa, I have seen. Augurs must also have watched the quail, Greek ortux, light finder. Ankh, live, and sankh, make to live, are the origin of the Latin sancio, sanctify, a word whose original meaning was to make to live. Sanctus, holy, means literally 'having been brought to life'. The ankh was the most powerful of amulets and hieroglyphs in ancient Egypt. Its hieroglyph is described as a sandal tie with loop. Why this should mean 'life' has not been made clear. For a connection between a sandal and life, we might turn to the Selli, the Agnihotris ...
4. Notes on the Androgynous Comet [SIS C&C Review $]
... (19) stems from the double sex of the Cyprian deity. A coin from Mallus in Cilicia shows a bearded Aphrodite (20). At Rome, too, the goddess was regarded as a man-woman and represented with a beard (21). Has any undistorted evidence survived which would enable us to read the minds of the ancients? The answer is not solely supplied by the Aranda tribe, whose tradition still revives the flaming globe connected with the leaping tail as an act of dalliance, but is also furnished by the ankh hieroglyph ([ *!* image: ankh), explained by Nork (22) as symbolising the joining of the male (+) with the female (o) generative power- Aphrodite sive Aphroditos. The combination of male and female procreational forces can only be conceived in a comet. And it is only because Nork and other authors are unaware of Venus' typhonic past that they apply the [* !* image: ankh to the "planet" Venus. The close connection of Aphrodite (Aphroditos) with ...
5. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 19: LIFE [Quantavolution Website]
... physical aspect of life, we find the key word in Greek, psyche. It is generally translated 'soul', and means the principle of life. The power of self-originated movement was taken by the Greeks to be a sign of the presence in the object or animal of psyche. The Greek philosopher Thales is believed to have said that a magnet contained psyche. Latin anima means air, then life in the sense of breath and physical life; animus is the spiritual and reasoning aspect of life. We have seen that Egyptian ankh is life, and sankh is to make to live, and I have suggested that here we have the explanation of Latin sancio, sanctify, meaning 'make to live'. Is the Greek angelos, messenger, composed of ankh and El? In Numbers XXII: 23, the story of Balaam and his ass illustrates how electrical phenomena could be interpreted as messengers. Hebrew chai means 'alive'; chaim [a plural form means 'life'. Greek haima is blood. Egyptian sankh is almost identical with the Latin for blood ...

... , and to have performed the Crane Dance. It may be that the Kordax, a Cretan dance in which the performers used a rope to link themselves, reflects the thread of Ariadne used by Theseus in the Cretan labyrinth. THE THREAD OF ARIADNE There is a Jewish tradition that when the sons of Aaron were killed by the ark, thin threads of flame went from the ark to their nostrils. The Greek lin-is flax, and thread. Could its derivation be El, and in-, presence of El? The Egyptian ankh could be held and pointed at a person's nose in order to give him life. There may be a link here between the Egyptians and the Hebrews. The ankh, as an electrical symbol, was a device that could kill as well as give life. What was the nature of the thread of Ariadne which was so useful to Theseus? One difficulty in the usual account is that the labyrinth was probably a dancing floor in the open air, and Theseus would have had no trouble in seeing where he was, and ...
7. THE BURNING OF TROY: PART THREE: WORKING OF THE MIND: CHAPTER SIXTEEN: SANDAL-STRAPS AND SEMIOLOGY [Quantavolution Website]
... agitation creates invention, anxiety creates words; the greater the fear the more words- but the more of catatonism, too- fear of words, being stuck upon words, avoiding words. Recently two quantavolutionaries engaged in a dispute, the one Editor of the Review of the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies, Malcolm Lowery, a linguist, the other Zvi Rix, a contributor to the Review and a physician. Rix became over the years the greatest authority on that symbol of "divine life" and of many religious apparitions, the ankh, the circle resting upon crossarms and vertical stroke, thus: By virtue of intensive research, Rix had established that the ankh was not only a widespread symbol, a religious symbol of wide dedication, but also a manifestation of androgyny, that is, a representation of the female vulva and the male phallus, and furthermore was securely identified with a cometary form, especially Venus, with ominous indications that the comet being discussed was a head that had dropped its tail, the victim of this accident being not only the two-sexed ...

... From: SIS Internet Digest 1999:1 (Apr 1999) Home¦ Issue Contents The Egyptologist's Electronic Forum http://www.netins.net/showcase/ankh/eefmain.html The Egyptologists' Electronic Forum (EEF, email: firstname.lastname@example.org) is a membership-wide email list for conferencing on the culture and civilization of ancient Egypt c.5000 BCE- 622 CE.

9. Spall Ankh in eastern Wyoming [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:2 (Dec 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents Spall Ankh in eastern Wyoming Michael Armstrong, Thu, 19 Oct 2000 This remarkable figure portraying a form of the Ankh, the Polar column, mistakenly called "The Man of The Mountains", was found on the almost insurmountable slope of a rocky hill in "The Spanish Diggings" area near Rawhide Buttes, a miniature mountain range of eastern Wyoming. The figure was laid out in an area "where it was less precipitous than above or below.. It was fifty-five feet long and about eight feet wide, the body looking not unlike a stone walk. The spalls forming the figure had been obtained near by, and had been carefully selected and assorted in regard to conformity as well as size. The rocks forming the figure were covered with lichens of slow growth and everything indicated that it had been made ages ago. Twenty miles east of the Diggings, on the summit of a plains butte, I found the figure of a serpent made of stones piled ...
10. The Great Terror [Kronos $]
... hidden there. Once they are made accessible to the conscious mind, the fearful memories can be dealt with and the disturbing elements rooted out. Has any undistorted evidence survived in the records of past generations which would enable us to accomplish our task, to refresh our recollection and decipher the lost language of symbolism? Perhaps. It would seem that cometary Venus is actually pictured in an ancient hieroglyph whose correct reading has so far escaped detection. Paul Ernst Jablonski reminds us that the famous "cross with the handle," (the ankh) which so often recurs on ancient Egyptian monuments, represents simultaneously the phallus and the planet Venus. "Observavi illic,.. ., crucem illam celeberrimam ansatam, in vetustis Aegyptiorum Monumentis toties occurrentum, [image, quae phallum designat, Pani Mendesio dedictatum fuisse. Et eodem plane signo, Veneris Planetam ab antiquis temporibus, in hunc usque diem significari consuevisse, nemine fugit."(41) Why is it that the lovely planet Venus (Phosphoros) was represented by the phallus? The phallus is no attribute of ...
