1. Mercury and the Tower of Babel [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... the horizon and is rarely visible. Despite this it managed to compete very successfully with Mars and Venus in the Babylonian pantheon even when Mars was so active in the days of Isaiah. Considering the parts played by Venus (Ishtar) and Nergal (Mars) it is impossible that Mercury could have been of such importance to the Babylonians if its position in the solar system had always been what it is today. Mercury was the chief god of the Gauls.(1) The animals associated with the planet were the goat, cock and monkey or ape which were probably the shapes assumed by the planet in the sky. Where did Mercury come from and what caused it to pass near the Earth? In early times following the Flood of Noah, Jupiter would have been much closer to the Earth(2) and might have been on an orbit which brought it dangerously close to our planet on occasions. I suggest that on one occasion one of its outer moons was detached from Jupiter by Earth's gravitational field. That moon would have been Mercury: in ...

... is sacred the world over and can be associated with the Egyptian scarab and Isis. Even more curious are rhymes about snails. Snail, snail come out of your hole is related to rhymes as far away as China, where it is important the snail puts out its horns, and in Four and twenty tailors went to kill a snail, its horns are described as like a cow's and there is some lethal quality associated with its tail. Could this be cometary imagery? A few rhymes hint of mythological relics. Ride a cock horse has older versions with an old woman on a black horse; its association with a very ancient cross is suggestive. Can you make me a cambric shirt, is in a line of myth in which the hero or heroine is set impossible tasks and lines repeating the names of herbs suggest it has associations with magical incantations. Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall could be simply a riddle for an egg but appears to be extremely old, possibly associated with humans impersonating eggs in ritual. It is tempting to read into it ...

3. IGNIS E COELO [Mythopedia Website]
... struck, it left its eggs [3 Of myths connected with thunder and lightning, perhaps the most remarkable is that of the Lightning-bird, which is best known from the Zulu accounts; but we find that the Baziba also think that lightning is caused by flocks of brilliantly-coloured birds, which are flung down to earth by Kayurankuba, the spirit presiding over storms; the thunder is the rushing sound of their wings [4 The Ganda, Gisu, and Amba speak of God ’ s presence in form [sic! MAS of a cock supposed to be seen when there is lightning [5. The concept is also found in the northern part of Africa: If during the months of hunger sheet lightning is seen in the west, the Masai say that there is a big bird of the heavens beating the water with its wings, and that what one sees flashing is the water [6. And in West-Africa So was the lightning bird who flapped his wings and caused thunder [7 The African thunder bird is described in different ways. Among the Bantu peoples ...

4. DEITIES OF DELPHI [Quantavolution Website]
... is a frieze of hoopoes in Crete, at Knossos. Other birds mentioned with crested heads and necks are the coot, phaleris, sacred to Aphrodite, and the lark korudalle. In Latin alauda cristata is the crested lark. The Legio Alauda was a legion named after the lark. The crested wren was called turannos, king. In line 291 ff., we hear that the birds are crested as though for the hoplitodromos, the soldier's footrace, in which each soldier wore a crested helmet and carried a shield. The cock, alektruon, was the most important domestic bird. The Persian king wore a peaked hat, kurbasia. The king alone wore it upright like a cock's comb. It is portrayed in a mosaic of the battle of Issus. The cock, alektryon, is not the only bird whose name contains the syllable al or el. We have met the lark alauda. If its voice, Greek aude, is here associated with el, so that its name is El's voice, we can see why a Roman legion should have ...

5. On Dragons and Red Dwarves [Aeon Journal $]
... . The truth is that the cult of Murukan is permeated with Martian motives. There is an explicit relation between the Tamil god and the color red, for example, Murukan elsewhere being known by the epithet Cey, "the Red One". Here one authority has stated: "Another fundamental symbolism is connected with Murukan's redness: his complexion is red, he is clad in red and gold garments...The flowers of the katampu, his tree par excellance, are red. His bird, the awakener, is the red cock." See K. Zvelbil, "A Guide to Murukan," Journal of Tamil Studies 9 (1976), p. 11. D. Handelman, "Myths of Murugan...," History of Religions 27:2 (1987), pp. 133-170, lists the following attributes of the god, all of which have Martian overtones: rambunctious infancy, during which he throws the cosmos into disorder; endures an episode of great heating and/or immolation; acts the part of a fool; ...

... In connection with the departure of the god-king's heart- soul as a "plumed" or "burning" star, one notes that Mesoamerican traditions produced many variations on the underlying idea. One influential variant was the idea of the heart-soul sprouting wings and soaring away. "On the death of a great noble, his soul was thought of as taking flight like a bird or a butterfly. At such a time he was addressed by those attending: Awaken, it has reddened, dawn has set in. Already, the flame-colored cock has sung, the flame-colored swallow, already the flame-colored butterfly flies. The most popular form of the "soul-bird" appears to have been the quetzal, the national bird of Guatemala. My friend Phil Peters, who lived for several years among the Quiche Maya of the Guatemala lowlands, recounts the story of the famous hero, Tecúm-Umám, who lived at the time of the Spanish invasion. On the plains of Xelaju, the story goes, Tecúm-Umám was killed by Pedro de Alverado, of Cortez' army. "Then ...

... happen, but it helps when someone leads the way. I find it curious what the balancing of male and female energies in one individual can produce. Rather than taking yang or yin to extremes and then getting blind-sided by the return of the repressed energies, why not cultivate a dynamic balance? These guys make it work and there may be a universal lesson. Likewise, both Dave and Dwardu reminded me in private conversations that Saturn was androgynous, and even that pesky old Polar Column, can be seen as either male (cock) or female (skirt). Finally, I believe Rupert was quite taken with Wal's evidence for crater scarring and other interplanetary effects though he didn't seem ready to connect his "morphic fields" at a fundamental (atomic) level with the electric/plasma universe. My intuition tells me the dialogue is not over yet as his intriguing observation that plasma may respond to telekinetic force in a lab experiment showed an interest in collaboration.

8. A Hebrew Cosmogony [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... ocean is situated to the west, and it is dotted with islands upon islands, inhabited by many different peoples. Beyond it, in turn, are the boundless steppes full of serpents and scorpions... To the north of it are the supplies of snow, hail, ice, darkness and windstorms. The Hebrew history of developments in the animal knows also to relate about other changes, occurrence of which belongs to the period of the deluge. Before the catastrophe of the deluge the dog united with the wolf, the cock with the pea-fowl, and many others paid no heed to sexual purity. The ? impurity ? was abandoned; but the sentiment of repulsion of one species against other species grew, and developed into cruelty. Cats and mice, foes now, were friends originally. Similarly, dogs and cats maintained a friendly relation to each other, and only later on became enemies. A legend connected with the sojourn of the animals in the ark brings the belief that Even the physical peculiarities of certain animals were not original features with them ...

Sheva Whiffs of air, a shot of drug, a tube of soup, a white-breasted meter-maid intruding now and then-- intensive care-- to confirm her readings of your organs. Their prognosis for you is poor you must know. You don't speak at all well, though you may perceive, while your intakes and outputs are disordered. Your heart stands brave above it all, like a proud cock refusing the falling night. How I wish you might know of our plan for you: That you shall be forthwith removed herefrom, and placed upon your porch above the greening bushes, overseen by a nervous flitting finch in the beams, there to sit and listen while Immanuel speaks of claims and confirmations in words so deep drawn out that in between them you plan how you will shape a bust in stone, and next time play that passage piu adagio.
