171. Chapter XVII: the Building Inscriptions [Dawn of Astronomy (Book)] [Books]
... world followed him, and the majesty of Amenemhat [first king of the Twelfth dynasty. The Kher-heb read the sacred text during the stretching of the measuring-cord and the laying of the foundation-stone on the piece of ground selected for this temple. Then withdrew His Majesty Amenemhat; and King Usertsen [son and co-regent wrote it down before the people." Nissen, from whom (loc. cit.) I quote the above, adds: "On account of the stretching of the measuring-cord, the Egyptian engineers were called by the Greeks arpedonaptai, whose art Democritus boasts of having acquired." We next turn to Abydos, possibly one of the oldest temple- fields in Egypt. There is an inscription relating to the re-building of one of them in the time of Seti I. (about 1380 B.C.). In this the goddess Sesheta addresses the king as follows:-- "The hammer in my hand was of gold, as I struck the peg with it, and thou wast with me in thy capacity of Harpedonapt. Thy hand held ...

... that he explored that much. Donovan Courville did, however, and even suggested that the Old and Middle Kingdom were the same-- not an unheard of theory, but rather off-the-wall. They could, however, have been contemporaneous in different parts of Egypt, but there is evidence against them being the same, including developing literary, architectural and artistic styles. The dynastic line of Egyptian rule was an invention by the Egyptian priest Manetho in the whatever century BC (3rd or 2nd). He was trying to impress the Greeks with the extreme antiquity of the Egyptian civilization and had it going back some massive amount of time-- tens of thousands of years, I forget the number. Not only that, some of those dynasties are believed to be fictitious-- there has been no evidence found for some of them. Manetho was a far more creative historian than Beggs and Marx. Many ruled concurrently in separate parts of Egypt, including right up to the Exodus. Even during the Hyksos domination, ALL of Egypt was not conquered, only ...

... supposedly moving on the Euphrates-- at Bit Chaluppe whereas Xerxes does the same at Chalkis. I myself spoke on the Greek Dark Age, especially on the city of Ismaros of the Kikonians where Ulysses committed the first reported genocide of occidental civilization (Odyssey IX: 39 ff.). The Kikonians are considered extinct around -1150 but they are well alive after the supposed dark age in Herodotus' -5th c. as well as in Strabo's -1st c. Even Ismaros recovered splendidly. Orpheus the Thracian is also called a Kikonian by Greeks and Romans (Vergil, Ovid) alike. To mainstream all these references to Ismaros and the Kikonians are mere boastings of learnedness, i.e., of how well the boasters knew their Homer. In short, no good reason so far to reinvent the Dark Age of Greece abolished by Velikovsky in 1945. The finest papers were on scientific dating. The most original was given by a forest botanist-- Menting-- who tried to explain how his field sees the reforestation of Europe after the end of the Ice Age ...

... pole to space. He said that this was the only explanation for permafrost. He dismissed the polar configuration as "impossible", then placed the earth on a large eliptical orbit which brought it close to all of the inner planets in turn (even Mercury.) Dwardu Cardona gave a paper similar to the one he printed on this forum about the history and development of the name of the comet associated with the the Exodus. He pointed out how that comet's name (Typhon in Greek) came to be confused because the Greeks claimed it was the comet named after the Egyptian king, who was Set (Seth?). ...
177. Plasma discharges in rock art? [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:2 (Dec 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents Plasma discharges in rock art? Thoth Vol IV, No. 15 Oct 15, 2000 During my first close encounter with Wal Thornhill, he electrified me with a picture of Zeus holding a thunderbolt. The bolt was football shaped with stringy things spiraling out of it. Wal explained that it was the shape a plasmoid took in a vacuum. "Gee-golly-cornpone!" I thought. "The ancient Greeks carved statues of something that hasn't been seen until modern man cranked up the current in a high-voltage lab." Now it's happened again. At the recent seminar in Portland, the work of Tony Peratt, author of "The Plasma Universe," (Springer- Verlag, 1992) was called to our attention. His work shows pictures of extremely powerful plasma discharges in his lab. They're called "Peratt instabilities." As the current is pumped up, the stringy things (NASA's technical jargon for Birkeland filaments, which they re-discovered awhile back in the tail of ...

179. The Atlantis Secret [SIS Internet Digest $]
... drew an astonishing conclusion: long ago, they decided, a living planet had exploded and seeded the beginning of all life on Earth. This "Cataclysm of all cataclysms"-- a forerunner of the modern Big Bang-- had been witnessed by no man, and yet it became the corner stone of the Sumerian and Egyptian civilisations. The Myth of All Myths: In Sumer and Egypt, the Exploded Planet myth was encoded in the tales of gods and peoples coming down from the sky. Millennia later, the ancient Greeks adopted similar ideas. In the myths and cults of the Olympian gods, in the mystery schools, in the cosmogonies of Thales, Anaximander, Heraclitus, Anaxagoras, Empedocles and Philolaos, in the "soul religion" of Orpheus, Pythagoras, Parmenides, Socrates and Plato, in all of these places, the Exploded Planet cosmogony is to be found. The Secret of All Secrets: Plato was initiated into the Exploded Planet secret, and used it as the basis for his story of Atlantis. In a theory that unifies ...
