81. Thersites a Jumping Trojan? [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:2 (Dec 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents Thersites a Jumping Trojan? CCNet, 25 May 2000 In this paper, we examine the dynamical evolution of the asteroid (1868) Thersites (According to Homer, Thersites was not only the ugliest of all Greeks that took part in the Trojan war, but also had the most intolerable personality. His nasty habit of making fun of everybody cost him his life, as the last person for whom he spoke ironically about was Achilles, the mightiest warrior of all Greeks, who killed Thersites with just one punch!), a member of the Trojan belt. Thersites is librating around the Lagrangian point L 4 [see Internet Digest 1999:1, p.6, following, however, a chaotic orbit. The equations of motion for Thersites as well as for a distribution of neighboring initial conditions are integrated numerically for 50 million years in the Outer Solar System model (OSS), which consists of the Sun and the four giant planets. Our results indicate that the probability ...
82. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 24: THE NORTH [Quantavolution Website]
... is shown as a cross and a lotus flower. The Greek lotos is suggestive of el oth, god above, and sign. We have seen that in the Sanskrit padma, lotus, we may have pa, light, and demas, body. Demas is used in Greek of a living body, and may have some connection with Latin domus, house, which in its turn is related to the root thom, to speak. Egyptian meh is a tiara, like the Greek crown, stephanos, Set visible. The Greeks used for the north the terms arktos, a bear, and Boreas. Boreas was used especially of the north wind, and is the Kassite god Buriash. Esh, ash, is a Semitic root meaning fire. The names Boreas and Buriash lead one to suspect that whatever was seen in the northern sky was thought of as the fire of Bor. One may speculate and suggest a link between Bor and the Latin verto, turn, alternative spelling vorto. The poli, heavens or poles, may have been thought of ...

84. The Entrance to the Citadel [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Citadel Both literary accounts and archaeological discoveries indicate that the ancient city of Mycenae in the Peloponnese of Greece was the political and cultural center of the Late Bronze Age (or ? Late Helladic [LH ?) Greece. For this reason one calls that period, its culture and its material remains ? Mycenaean. ? Since Mycenae is the type-site for LH Greece, its history and its relics will be of chief concern in this essay. According to tradition, the city ? s founder was the legendary hero Perseus, and the later Greeks attributed its fortifications of tremendous stones to mythical giants, the one-eyed Cyclopes. It was for Eurystheus, a later king of Mycenae, that Heracles performed his twelve labors. One of the city ? s last heroic kings was Agamemnon, commander of the pan-Hellenic expedition against Troy. Upon his return from that long war, his queen and her paramour murdered him in the palace, for which crime his children, Orestes and Electra, took their terrible revenge.

85. A Chariot Vase [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... chariots, showing no further modifications, look like ? direct descendants ? of the twelfth-century type. One would hardly object if the model was incapable of improvement, and thus remained unchanged for another 400 years, but there is no evidence of its existence during those intervening centuries; (2) and alongside the chariot which seems not to have changed for 400 years, other models make their first known appearance. (3) The lack of evidence for chariots between the twelfth and eighth centuries, coupled with the impoverished picture of the Greeks, which modern scholars note during that ? Dark Age,? led Snodgrass to conclude that chariots disappeared from Greece for 400 years, then returned to their old form. (4) Despite that admitted lack of evidence for continuity, H. Catling preferred to follow those who believed that chariots did persist in their old form throughout the Dark Age, rather ? than to add chariots to the long list of war-gear that failed to survive the Mycenaean period, and did not reappear in Greece until the eighth century or later. ...
86. Against Russia-or Us? [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Greek state. But the British opposite this and since the Greek king is a German-born, Nazi-oriented, British-reinstated monarch, the present Greek Government does not support the desire of the Greek population of Cyprus to become a part of Greece.*** Here appears the strangest paradox. In Greece the British have instigated the annihilation not only of the left-wing elements, but of democratic elements as well, a work being accomplished with the monetary and military help of the Americans. But on Cyprus, the British at present persecute the right-wing Greeks, and build their policy on promoting the left-wing elements. The reason is simple. All Greeks on the island are eager to see Cyprus a part of Greece, but the left-wing elements would not like to unite with present-day Greece with its reactionary government, because they are afraid of persecution. Thus, while the British support the Left wing, Communists included, on the island, they support the Right wing in Greece, turning the expensive job of fighting the Left wing over to the Americans. By supporting the Communists and ...
87. Newton And Historical Science [Kronos $]
... are: a) Biblical chronology is more reliable than any other ancient chronology. b) In the list of Egyptian dynasties transmitted by Greek authors, several dynasties are duplicated and some have been inserted in the wrong order. c) In order to reconstruct the correct Egyptian chronology, a basic datum is provided by the fact that the pharaoh who sacked the Temple of Jerusalem in the age of King Rehoboam, the successor of Solomon, called Shishak in the Old Testament, is the same person as the pharaoh called Sesostris by the Greeks. Today we know that under the name of Sesostris the Greeks merged the deeds of more than one pharaoh, including Thutmose III. Velikovsky claims that Shishak is the same person as Thutmose III. d) The invasion of Egypt by the Hyksos took place after the Exodus, not before. e) Current Greek chronology must be shortened by about five hundred years, eliminating what today we call the Greek Dark Ages. According to Newton, the Trojan War took place one generation before Homer. It is rather bizarre that Newton ...
88. Did the Amazons Exist After All? [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon V:1 (Nov 1997) Home¦ Issue Contents News Flash Did the Amazons Exist After All? Tania ta Maria Ancient female warriors, known as Amazons, litter Greek myth and legend. In modern times, they have been more or less relegated to the fertile imagination of the ancient Greeks. Herodotus, the Greek historian of antiquity, had however vouched for their existence. On his return from his travels north of the Black Sea, he told of these fierce female warriors, armed with swords and bows and arrows, roaming the steppes of what today is southern Russia. Together with their mention elsewhere in Greek literature, scholars have dismissed Herodotus' accounts as unbelievable. Recent archaeological discoveries in the area, however, seem to suggest that, after all, the Amazons did in fact exist. The American archaeologist Jeannine Davis-Kimball has been working with Russian counterparts near the town of Pokrovka in Kazakhstan. There, Davis-Kimball has excavated 63 graves, dating from 600 to 400 B.C., which contained the remains of females only. The ...
89. Modern Origins of Flat Earth Theory [SIS Internet Digest $]
... book Inventing the Flat Earth Columbus and Modern Historians. As an added bonus, there's a section on how Columbus fudged his distance estimates to sell the 1492 voyage which discovered the New World. Chances are, CCNet readers would find the account stimulating reading. Internet Digest Readers may also be interested in the following book-- Ed. The Edges of the Earth in Ancient Thought: Geography, Exploration, and Fiction by James S. Romm. Paper, 1994, www.pupress.princeton.edu/titles/5037.html $18.95, 247pp. For the Greeks and Romans the earth's farthest perimeter was a realm radically different from what they perceived as central and human. The alien qualities of these "edges of the earth" became the basis of a literary tradition that endured throughout antiquity and into the Renaissance, despite the growing challenges of emerging scientific perspectives. Here James Romm surveys this tradition, revealing that the Greeks, and to a somewhat lesser extent the Romans, saw geography not as a branch of physical science but as an important literary genre. ...
90. On Number as Artifact (Part 3: Conclusion) [Horus $]
... sees in spiral motifs the "journey of the soul"- not exactly an objective view but nonetheless a typical assessment up till now.[7 J. E. Cirlot sees two types of spiral: the inward-winding and the outward-winding.[8 This is more helpful, since the lunar-solar problem corresponds clearly to the former, the scale problem to the latter. (See figure above) Perhaps all analogies break down at some point. But the evidence is there for all to see, and it must mean something. The Greeks for example enshrined the double spiral in the capitals of their Ionic pillars. The Ionic double spiral The Chinese and the Mayans were lavish with them in their decorative patterns. There is in fact hardly a more pervasive symbol in early thought, and even so it is one about which few convincing explications have been advanced. In both of the figures (page 3) the amount of miss has been exaggerated. The gap in the scale amounts to about 2%. The calendar miss is only slightly larger. Granted that musical ...
