201. Bel and Dragons [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... failures due to changed weather patterns such as heavy and persistent rainfall, while the final plague, a supernatural invasion by a giant= a comet or meteor flux reminiscent of the myth surrounding the Wild Hunt... variously associated with Artemis, Woden, Gwydion etc? Unlike his father, Llud was regarded as a generally benevolent god associated with healing and fishing and is the root of the Arthurian fisher king theme. Bel has been compared to Belinus as recorded by the Romans, which in turn was compared to Apollo of the Greeks. Apollo was also a god of healing but he had various other nastier traits. Bel is however cognate with Irish Balor and he was associated with the Fo-moirre. He possessed a venomous burning eye and was regarded as the bringer of famine. He caused the bracken to wither as he approached from afar and the grass turned brown and discoloured. As he came closer, the woods and all things wooden grew red and hot and finally they were set on fire and the whole country blazed [3. Irish folklore it seems ...

202. Sinister Development In Ancient Greece [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 35: Sep-Oct 1984 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Sinister Development In Ancient Greece The unprecedented genius of Ancient Greece remains unexplained. Why the sudden surge of "civilized" activities: drama, poetry, philosophy, mathematics, and even science? It was all because the Ancient Greeks developed an alphabet that included vowels in addition to the consonants. The Greek language became a full phonetic representation of language. The left side of our brain, it seems, is much more capable than the right in matters phonetic. In contrast, other forms of writing in the ancient world, such as hieroglyphics and vowelless alphabets, are better handled by the right side of the brain. (As an aside, it is interesting that, in the modern world, Japanese and Chinese are better processed by the right side of the brain, while the phonetic representations of language, such as English, are handled better sinistrally.) Back in Ancient Greece, the new alphabet shifted language ...

203. Unbelievable Baalbek [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 60: Nov-Dec 1988 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Unbelievable Baalbek The city of Baalbek, called Heliopolis by the ancient Greeks, lies some 50 miles northeast of Beirut. Here are ruins of the greatest temple the Romans ever tried to construct. However, we must focus not on mundane Roman temples but upon a great assemblage of precisely cut and fitted stones, called the Temple today, which the Romans found ready-made for them when they arrived at Baalbek. It was upon this Temple, or stone foundation, that the Romans reared their Temple of Jupiter. No one knows the purpose of the much older Temple underneath the Roman work. J. Theisen has reviewed the basic facts known about the Temple's construction-- and they are impressive, perhaps even anomalous. Being 2,500 feet long on each side, the Temple is one of the largest stone structures in the world. Some 26 feet above the structure's base are found three of the largest stones ever employed ...

... (Loma Linda, 1971), pp. 320-321, and Bronson Feldman, "Pygmalion, Prince of Tyre, and the el-Amarna Correspondence," KRONOS II:1 (1976), pp. 76-88. The two names match phonetically thus: ABI MILKI/PYGMAL-ION. The Greek ending "-on" is the same as in Straton (Astarte), and B/P and G/K are simply voiced/unvoiced pairs which often switch. All that is left is a simple metathesis of the G/K. The Greeks tended to drop initial vowels in transliteration (again, Straton is a useful example), and it is to be expected that consonants preceded by consonants would be unvoiced. 17. Peter J. James, "Abimilki, Azaru and Nikmed in the El-Amarna Correspondence and the Assyrian Annals," KRONOS IV:1 (1978), pp. 45-55. 18.

205. Rhythms In Rhythm [Science Frontiers Website]
... a 500-year pulse in musical creativity, but nested within the long swings are 100-year subcycles! Allen's article, as it appeared originally in the Journal of Human Ecology (1:1, 1951), ran 41 pages. We can hit only a few high notes here. And, since we are concerned mainly with anomalies, we shall concentrate on this unexpected periodicity in musical creativity. Allen describes how musical theorists have proposed both supernatural and evolutionary explanations for this periodicity, which commenced some 2,500 years ago with the Ancient Greeks. He is not convinced by either class of explanations. Instead, Allen has been beguiled by the long-period tones of environmental cycles: "Now we have knowledge of a constantly operating cyclic factor in our cosmos, scientifically based on a mass of inductive evidence that goes beyond recorded history into the tree-ring records from centuries B.C. For the first time, we are provided with a powerful conditioning factor, if not a determinant, in the creation of music." Here are two statements reflecting Allen's observations on the subject: " ...

... animal in each sign. Therkorn surmised that the animal remains represented ritual sacrifices that were probably time-coordinated with specific celestial positions of the real stellar constellations. The pit-zodiac story does not end at Muggenburg. At Velserbroek, over 40 kilometers distant, Taurus and Pegasus pit-patterns have been identified. These are dated at 600 BC-- 1,000 years earlier than Muggenburg. The pit-zodiacs show astronomical sophistication unexpected in European farmers 2,600 years ago. And how did these "barbarians" learn about the zodiac of the "civilized" Greeks and Babylonians long before the Roman legions pushed north into Gaul? Of course, the mainstream archeologists will have none of this. (Schilling, Govert; "Stars Fell on Muggenburg," New Scientist, p. 33, December 16, 1995) Comment. Across the Channel in Britain, one also finds the equally controversial Glastonbury Zodiac, as seen by those soinclined in the arrangement of some natural and artificial geographical features.

... . Also: Peterson, I.; "Left-Handed Excess in Meteorite Molecules," Science News, 151:118, 1997. Note that left-handed amino acids in the Murchison meteorite were also reported in the early 1980s: Kerr, Richard A.; "Odd Amino Acids in a Meteorite," Science, 216:972, 1982.) Comments. This discovery of a tilted universe means that we cannot confirm Martian life with spacecraft instruments that test for an excess of left-handed amino acids. Human philosophers, from the ancient Greeks to the present, like to think the universe is in balance, that equality reigns, yin and yang, and similar presumptions. But, let's face it: our particular universe is lopsided. Of course, our universe may be balanced by another one far away, where everything, including its intelligent life forms, are made from right-handed amino acids-- chemically speaking, a mirror image of our universe. Balance could thus be preserved at that scale. From Science Frontiers #111, MAY-JUN 1997.© 1997-2000 William ...

Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 111: May-Jun 1997 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Circaseptennial Rhythm In Ear Growth J. Verhulst and P. Onghena have carefully measured the ears of a sample of British men aged from 30 to 83 years. Every seven years, they discovered, the rate of ear growth peaked. In this finding, Verhulst and Onghena supported the contention of the Ancient Greeks that there is a seven-year rhythm in human development. (Anonymous; "Rhythmic Ear Growth...," Science News, 151:26, 1997. If you are skeptical about this item, the source cited is: British Medical Journal, December 21/28, 1996.) Cross reference. We have already re-corded rhythmic growth spurts in child-ren in SF#85 and SF#86. A related phenomenon, extremely rapid growth, is cataloged under BHF27 in our Catalog: Humans II. Information on this volume is posted at here. From Science Frontiers #111, MAY-JUN 1997.© ...

In SF#107, we saw how some of Mozart's compositions are divided according the the Golden Ratio: 0.618. Even the ancient Greeks believed this ratio to be the secret of beauty in form and shape. Our greatest painters, sculptors, and architects have employed the Golden Ratio intentionally or unknowingly. Realizing this august history of the Golden Ratio, it is surprising to learn that a test of 51 established artists and sculptors has cast doubt upon the whole business. The subjects were asked to take a pencil and divide line segments into two parts such that they formed the most pleasing proportion. The ratio of choice was a disappointing 1:2 rather than 0.618!
