91. Discussion & Questions From the Floor [Aeon Journal $]
... While confessing their mystification at its persistent intrusion into their scheme, they constantly brushed Saturn aside and relegated it to the limbo of unimportance. Rather than forcing their own notions on mythology, they should have followed where the evidence led." All of this is untrue. What this passage shows is that Cardona does not know the difference between "mystification" ... failure because it is merely a superficial probing of ancient traditions by modern intellects who make no attempt to get into the material and see it on its own terms-- on mythological terms, not twentieth century high-tech terms. For a glimpse at how the authors of Hamlet's Mill bridge the gap between the archaic mind and the modern mind, read the following ... representing that the J3 harmonic in Earth's figure, which manifests an 18 m "bulge" at the North Pole, is the residual of a former tidal bulge formed by some mythical polar configuration.

... Home¦ Issue Contents The Saturn Thesis (Part 4) An In-Depth Interview with David Talbott-- (concluded) AEON: In our last discussion you were explaining the various mythological motifs associated with the displaced Radiant Venus and Mars. You mentioned that one item that this celestial apparition resembled was that of a peacock's tail. You then made the enigmatic statement ... hair-star) are brought into conjunction, but that they are brought into conjunction in the particular way we would expect. In fact, where the comb is more active in the myths, such as you find in Japan and various eastern mythologies, it fills the role of clumps of bamboo (equivalent to the thicket in Egyptian symbolism); and its teeth ... gave rise to the disheveled hair of the angry goddess, whose most familiar form is the Medusa, and whose head was repeatedly placed in the center of shields.

94. The Cosmic Origin of the Swastika [Aeon Journal $]
... . I am therefore indebted to Professor Lewis Greenberg for bringing the following datum to my attention in the paper he presented at the 1996 Florida symposium.

( ... punishment for stealing the fire of the gods, was originally called Cronium, that is Mount Cronius, (13) or the mountain of Kronos/Saturn, identifiable through the mytho-historical record as the axis mundi associated with the primeval Saturnian sun. As far as the swastika itself is concerned, Graves was of the opinion that: "While the right-handed swastika ... Except for an approach to the Earth from an unlikely sector of the sky, the comet would be seen by cultures all over the world. Surely, there would be a mythological framework-- sometimes called a world view-- into which this apparition would be fitted. People would naturally think the display held some portent or significance for them. Some ...

... kind of catastrophe games and rituals, the people 'were not entirely lacking a means of activity in order to hinder or inhibit a threatening disaster' [10.

Whilst the Jews have remembered the Flood of Noah through writing and learning of history, other cultures have commemorated ancient floods in their myths [19 or, in some instances, have acted them out in imitative rituals. In his commentary on the biblical flood story, Westermann discusses various flood and catastrophe ceremonies and ... working-off in the form of play was the proper function of this Aztec catastrophe game: "Thus the Aztec flying game, as a cultic act, transformed a myth into a mythical object which could be then realized. By doing so, the flying game succeeded in converting ontic anxiety into a tangible fear that could be courageously faced." [8 Likewise ...

97. The Spring Of Ares [Kronos $]
... terms as mountain, tree, or spring to describe the celestial axis. But the question must be asked whether such an abstract, invisible tree or mountain would so dominate the mythology of the races, both primitive and advanced. Besides, this hypothesis fails to explain the intimate association of the Mountain/Tree with the planet Mars, even though the connection ... of walls".(11) Ancient writers identified Ares with the Latin Mars, and it is certain that Mars, as god of war and pestilence, shared cultic and mythological characteristics in common with Ares. The names of the two gods, however, appear to be unrelated. As Jacob Grimm stated: "With the word Ares the Latin Mars ... and Mythology (N. Y., 1977), p. 125.

... of marbles in the bag. But if every handful contains a mixture of well-known varieties, you suspect that you've already discovered most of what the bag contains. Applied to comparative mythology, are you guys still coming up with the same old marbles? Or do you sometimes come across something entirely new? If so, what? Dwardu Cardona Replies: In ... differences and what these might entail. Eric Douma Asks: Has all mythology been already considered in one way or another with regard to the Saturn theory, or is there still mythological and/or legendary material out there that has never been checked as to its relevancy or consistency with the Saturn theory? Dwardu Replies: I can only speak for myself. ... is because those are regarded as the oldest and most reliable ones to testthe theory on. Dwardu: Correct.

... do with who is right and who is wrong. But, if our mythological studies are to progress, erroneous planetary identifications have to be laid to rest.
