Need sources/info!! In Chinese mythology dragons are usually benevolent. I stress usually. The four main dragons are the dragon kings of the North, South, East and West. The reside in their own realm under the sea and are part of the group of gods who bring rain to the people. But they can be vicious and evil, sometimes it is their sons the dragon princes who commit the crimes and due to family honour and pride the Dragon Kings are forced to back their sons up. There also a few other dragons here and there like the blue dragon spirit who inhabits the his constellation. As for their description- long like the serpent, head like a ...

More Information Book Synopsis Read Chapter One Order Link Apr 28, 2006 Ossified Dragon Theories If there is a prevailing theory about dragons, perhaps it is the oft-repeated claim that reptilian species – alive or extinct – lurk behind the mythical image. But closer scrutiny casts doubt on such theories, while pointing to the similarities between the dragon and the life-like forms of plasma discharge. The idea of a reptilian 'prototype' of the fabulous dragon comes in various forms, all of which have their proponents. Many students of dragon lore have suggested that the instinctive fear of snakes led to irrational, exaggerated accounts of a ...

3. China's Dragon [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 4 No 1: (Winter 1973-74) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered VI" Home¦ Issue Contents China's Dragon Carter Sutherland An effort to recover the Urbild Dr. Sutherland is a professor of medieval English, Georgia State University (Atlanta). Velikovsky has called our attention to ancient records of a supposed battle which took place in the heavens during the middle of the second millennium B.C. This combat was widely recorded as may be seen by such items as the Hebrew tradition of God battling Rahab and the Greek story of Zeus fighting Typhon. Velikovsky argues impressively that the basis for such accounts is the close approach of Venus to the earth about 1500 B.C. Venus, he insists, was then a comet; the head and the tail were observed as separate and inimical beings; electrical discharges between them made a battle seem to be in progress. The fight was thought by some people to be between a god of Light (the head of the comet) and an evil dragon (the tail). But in China the dragon ...

4. Origins of the Red Dragon Symbol? [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:1 (Sep 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents Origins of the Red Dragon Symbol? John Michael and Melfyn Thomas CCNet 22nd March 2002 Whilst researching the origins of the Red Dragon symbol on the flag of Wales I decided to look again at the English translation of the Welsh name for the Red Dragon. In the ancient Welsh language it is known as 'Draig Goch'- (Red Dragon), from 'draig'- (dragon) and 'goch'- (red). But in "Y Geiriadur Cymraeg Prifysgol Cymru", the "University of Wales Welsh Dictionary", (Cardiff, University of Wales Press, 1967, p. 1082) there are given translations for the various uses of the Welsh word 'draig'. Amongst them are common uses of the word, which today is generally taken just to mean a 'dragon', but in times past it has also been used to refer to: 'Mellt Distaw'- (sheet lightning), and also 'Mellt Didaranau'- (lightning unaccompanied by thunder ...

If ancient artists recorded the life-like configurations of plasma instabilities, we can be sure that the witnesses would also have told stories about the life-like movements and transformations of the instabilities. And if rock art exhibits identical forms around the world, the stories should do the same. Ancient narratives, passed down from prehistoric times, are called “mythology” ...

6. On Dragons and Red Dwarves [Aeon Journal $]
... for the warrior-hero, the planet Mars figures prominently in numerous ancient myths of the dragon-combat. Indeed, it is the hero's identity with Mars which alone provides the rationale for many of the most bizarre elements of the myth. The following essay is an exercise in comparative mythology, and as such it is not intended to represent the definitive analysis of the dragon-combat. Whole volumes will be required to elucidate the spectacular events at the heart of this intriguing mythical theme. Here we merely attempt to analyze several intriguing motives hitherto overlooked. The Dragon and Creation In order to properly interpret the myth of the dragon-combat it is necessary at the outset of our investigation to place it in its proper mythological context. That the dragon-combat has a cosmological import has been recognized since the pioneering researches of Gunkel, who documented that it typically had reference to tumultuous events associated with the Creation. (1) This opinion is readily confirmed by numerous passages in the Old Testament which allude to Yahweh's primeval conquest of the dragon, the latter appearing under one of several different names: Yam, ...

In the famous lantern procession celebrated by Chinese people on the 15th of the first month, the red sphere precedes the dragon. This sphere is called huoh chuh, "fire pearl". Shown here is a Buddhist gong-hanger produced in 18th- or 19th-century Korea. The flames that erupt from the pearl in some representations parallel the flames exhaled by dragons in other traditions. But what does the red sphere signify? And where does the image of the dragon itself come from? Scholars agree that the pearl is celestial. But does it signify the moon, as some ...

... From: SIS Workshop Vol 3 No 4 (Apr 1981) Home¦ Issue Contents The Dragon in Myth and Folklore/h1> Martin Sieff 1. THE DRAGON IN THE HEAVENS The Norse Eddas commemorate the clash at World's End, on the day of Ragnarok, between Thor, the thunderbolt-wielding light god, and Jormungardur, the Midgard Serpent, the great snake gaping in the heaven above. "... a pageant went on in the sky which presented itself to the horrified onlookers on earth as a gigantic battle".(1) This pageant is enshrined elsewhere in the world in descriptions of such epic battles as those between Isis and Seth (Egyptian mythology), Vishnu and the serpent (Hindu), Zeus and Typhon (Greek), Anat and Lotan (Ugaritic), the Storm-god and Illuyankas (Hittite), and Ormuzd and Ahriman (Zoroastrian). In all these accounts, the details parallel each other. Velikovsky identifies the conflict between the light-bearing hero and the multi-headed, fire-scattering serpent or dragon as the celestial drama when the ...

Credit: NASA/Cassini Jul 14, 2006 Saturn's Dragon Storm The mysteries of Saturn ’ s atmospheric behavior continue to mount as scientists puzzle over a massive "thunderstorm" that has remained fixed in place since it first appeared in 2004. Most people assume that meteorologists understand the weather. But this is not really so. For instance, if one were to ask a meteorologist what causes lightning on Earth, the only honest answer he or she could give would be, "We're not sure." Dr. Martin Uman, author of numerous books on lightning, takes the conventional view that charge buildup required for lightning comes from vertical movement of droplets in a thundercloud. But he confesses that the process occurs "in a way or ways not yet fully understood." If meteorologists don ’ t “fully understand” ...
