71. A Reply to Stiebing [Pensee]
... premature to pronounce a verdict, apart from the fact that the historical and literary evidence employed in volume I of Ages in Chaos was sufficient to start an unbiased student of ancient history on the way to questioning the stability of the conventional scheme of things.

Papyrus ... in Chaos and the stratigraphical record In issue #5 of the Pensee series dedicated to the reexamination of my theses, W. H. Stiebing arrived at the conclusion that the historical reconstruction of Ages in Chaos "cannot be reconciled with the stratigraphical evidence of archaeology." By stratigraphical evidence are usually meant mute artifacts, mostly pottery. The effort in my ... almost in every year-while the conventionally written history is lacking a single contact between these two chronologies on the long expanse of many centuries.

With this the challenge by Dr. Stiebing is ...

New Kingdom. Unfortunately, his important 1977-1978 submissions stood alongside a flagrantly erroneous idea (without which his original arguments could have been developed very nicely).

73. From Myth to a Physical Model [Aeon Journal $]
... collective memory of man as he strove to align himself with the experienced powers, to be true to the gods. For modern science, this is an utterly unknown dimension of history, and it is therefore necessary to temporarily hold in suspension all prior beliefs about the past. Not in the sense that we abandon reason or ignore physical principles once and for ... is the discussion of elaborate physical models based on a few mythical fragments. This kind of discussion is not only generally useless but easily leads to self-deception: it implies that complex historical questions can be answered by abstract logic, or by mathematical or physical demonstration. But there are a thousand abstract possibilities, and that doesn't make any of them true. Moreover ... case of the Egyptian Ra, the prototype of the good king, or Shu or Horus, prototypes of the hero Hercules, you can see this transformation clearly in the classical histories of Egypt.

... 330 BC)? Nobody could satisfactorily answer this question. The excavators resorted to the assumption of that they were heirlooms. Thus some strata 1,500 years earlier in Hazor's history would contain the mass of Old-Babylonian tablets from which the few found had mysteriously filtered to the tell's Persian period level. The excavators were not happy with this ad hoc hypothesis. ... well preserved in the Median ('Mitannian') strata of Scythopolis=Beth Shean [35.

... Land' par excellence, prototype (75) of all other 'Holy Lands,' the spiritual centre to which all other centres are subordinated." Through identification, the sacred history of the race or nation merges with the history of the gods, for each organized community viewed itself as a duplication of the celestial "race." Each line of historical ... leads back to a first king who is not a man, but Saturn, the supreme power of heaven; in the same way, the race as a whole traces its ancestry to a generation of gods or semidivine beings who inhabited the "earth" raised in the creation. By this universal tendency, Saturn's paradise becomes the ancestral land, the place ... kingdom and the celestial prototype was a natural result of the inseparable bond between the two. The local habitation inherited the mythical character of the celestial, so that the divergent actual histories of ancient nations lead back to one universal history. It is in this sense that one must understand the legends of the first kings and primeval generations. Many Egyptian texts, ...

Yet, the author felt encouraged to approach the problem afresh because the classical tools of ... world is usually not confronted with the above stratigraphic evidence in the ground but is offered excavation reports that add periods to the strata actually found. This stretching of the sites' historical duration is done to satisfy the textbook chronology ideas that the excavators have in their minds before their work begins. Instead of testing the chronographers' ideas by their own archaeological results ... , palaeography, glyptic, pottery, weaponry, architecture (Kaplan, 1975) and many other technologies point to the contemporaneity of Hyksos and Old-Akkadians.

... other than this one sect, no one has ever read the text this way, and Aitchison should at the very least attempt to defend the premise against the entire weight of history which opposes it.

... religious goals of their custodians. Myth and legends, not so regarded, or whose line of custodians died out, were left like abandoned children to wander through time as casual history and unconstrained imagination, until caught up by scientific mythological studies. Giambattista Vico was the first modern scholar to perceive this process when, two centuries ago, he wrote: " ... Many ancient scholars believed the story. Most Romans accepted it as true. The actual beginnings of the legend occur before Virgil, who related it in his epic poetry. If historical, the legend should go back to the also legendary beginnings of Rome, in the Eighth Century B.
