91. The Center Holds [Pensee]
... behavior patterns laid down in catastrophic circumstances might explain a number of biological enigmas --bird migration; swarming; acute sensitivity of many species to the subtlest earth tremors, solar eclipses, etc. The inheritance of memory has already been suggested by experiments on rats and worms. PSYCHOLOGY Here, without any perceptible break between disciplines, one touches a major premise of Velikovsky's psychology, barely adumbrated in the epilogue to Worlds in Collision. Referring to Freud's idea of an archaic heritage of traumatic memories transmitted from generation to generation, and also to Jung's ... readily is it denounced as deterministic. There are already enough schools of psychology at each other's throats, and none more beleaguered than Freudians who hold to an original orthodoxy or Jungians who champion their apostate. But this is not the place either to expound or defend Velikovsky's psychological hypotheses. I wish only to make two points about them. First, his deductions are less problematical than those of his predecessors because his first principles are not in themselves psychological: he does not have to fabricate a primal psychic complex, like Freud's father-murder, ...
92. THE DISASTROUS LOVE AFFAIR OF MOON AND MARS: PART THREE: THERAPY FOR GROUP FEAR, CHAPTER 15 [Quantavolution Website]
... the era of troubled skies; but it was a mythical work, "reporting" on events that had occurred hundreds and thousands of year before. "The ordered pantheon of Hesiod ended in supplanting the anarchic society of the Homeric Gods." [1 A functional psychology rests in the quoted passage. "Remembering" was no mere scratching of experience upon a tabula rasa of the mind. Memoria or Mnemosyne or "Recollector," is the mother of history (Clio). She has as her progeny the means of controlling ... "by Zeus" ultimately to brainwash humanity and to present the new order of heaven as proper, lawful, and beautiful. Hesiod, reciting this profound truth, goes on to describe how the muses work, reminding us of a combined team for domestic propaganda and psychological warfare. As a result, all the arts and sciences have been manipulated by the muses. What we know of the catastrophes must come from a "natural history"- geology, biology, physics and astronomy- and a politics, philosophy, and theology ...
93. Untitled [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... of a comprehensive metapsychology which also centered on the treatment of narcissism as the first order of analytical business. In doing so, Paul H. Ornstein (Kohut 1978:80) claimed that Kohut had pioneered "a new perception of the relationship between drive-psychology and self psychology." In many respects, however, Kohut's approach in the 1950's seems to have paralleled that of Velikovsky in the 1930's. But there is no evidence that Kohut was in any way influenced by Velikovsky, and the personal ties between the two seem tenuous at ... painstaking re-examination of that chronology and eventually effected substantial revisions to it. In his reconstruction Akhnaton did not precede Moses but actually lived several centuries later. Velikovsky's original concept of Akhnaton-as-Oedipus no longer performed the function of central structural element in his work but served rather as a psychological scaffolding for just one portion of his new history. Even so, according to John M. MacGregor (1978:48), a lecturer in art and psychiatry at the Ontario College of Art, Velikovsky's section on Freud "represents the most insightful analysis of ...
94. Collective Amnesia In Everyday Life [Kronos $]
... phylogenetic "extinction" or "reproduction" is both a collective issue and a sexual one. If the human race indeed experienced a cataclysm which threatened its survival, such a trauma must be seen as a collective, sexual, trauma, and neither psychoanalysis nor analytical psychology is equipped to examine it in these terms.* [* Cf. Zvi Rix, "Notes on the Androgynous Comet" in SIS Review I:5 (Summer 1977), pp. 17-19.-- LMG Freud observed that the first law of ... (Fall 1981) Home¦ Issue Contents Collective Amnesia In Everyday Life Jerome A. Kroth "To go beyond the reality principle, through the looking glass of dialectical reversal, to the absurd truth."-- N. O. Brown Velikovsky has provided the psychological community with a challenging concept-- collective amnesia. While Freud postulated individual amnesia, and Jung developed the notion of a collective psyche and unconscious, Velikovsky appears to have married these notions into a single construct. It postulates that if the human race ever came ...

... scientists and Velikovsky's specific theory of celestial catastrophism" may be summarized in two words- "space and time... Evidently speculations about catastrophic phenomena occurring millions of years ago in time, or millions of light years away in space, lead to little if any psychological discomfort. ('Out of sight, out mind'?) When a similar idea is presented in terms of what may have taken place within the sanctuary of our solar system and on our planet, the terror and uncertainty it conjures up apparently become a bogy too ... Commotion in the winds, frights, changes, horrors, Divert and crack, rend and deracinate The unity and married calm of states Quite from their fixture!" In contrast to the ancients, "modern" science holds a much different attitude towards the Cosmos. Psychologically, a violent universe can be clearly recognized and tolerated, providing our relative position in it is safely distant --which it is tacitly assumed to be. The fundamental "difference, of course, between the [catastrophic speculations of most of today's scientists and Velikovsky's specific ...

97. “I Survived, As You See" [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... of the moon and planets are all “wrong.” Velikovsky reviewed the anomalies which, from one discipline to another, lend support to his belief that global paroxysms convulsed the Earth in historical times. In cosmology, celestial mechanics, geology, evolutionary theory, and psychology he questioned assumptions —“of Victorian vintage”— which have remained unchanged despite the accumulation of evidence against them. Finally, of the students of religion he inquired: “Why was Jupiter — not as bright as the sun and not as important for our ... and stability since time immemorial. But the real tale is different — a tale of destruction and terror. "I have only said, ‘ Know yourself; know your past ’ ”... "The cause of the opposition to me was in great part psychological: my critics could not accept my bringing their unconscious to consciousness.” Concluding his lecture on an offbeat, Velikovsky recalled the remarks of an archaeology professor at Southern Methodist University: Velikovsky ’ s Worlds in Collision, the professor warned the nation, has caused ...

99. The Moon, the Stars, and Human Behavior [Science Frontiers Website]
... recent studies that examined lunar variables and mental behavior. Our review supports the view that there is no causal relationship between lunar phenomena and human behavior. We also speculate on why belief in such relationships is prevalent in our society. A lack of understanding of physics, psychological biases, and slanted media reporting are suggested as some possible reasons."

Shawn; "A Double-Blind Test of Astrology," Nature, 318:419, 1985.) Next, if overkill is required, the Skeptical Inquirer, matches the Nature article with one on the effect of the moon on human behavior. The authors (two psychologists and an astronomer) conclude: "This article outlines the results of a meta-analysis of 37 studies and several more recent studies that examined lunar variables and mental behavior. Our review supports the view that there is no causal relationship between lunar phenomena and human behavior. ...

... words. In this test, T.E. could remember more than 12 digits in the strings as they flashed by at one string per second. (Gordon, Paul, et al; "One Man's Memory: A Study of a Mnemonist," British Journal of Psychology, 75:1, 1984.) Comment. Two comments here: (The figure alphabet seems rather cumbersome at first, but its long history suggests that it dovetails nicely with human memory processes; and (2) Several ancient languages were written without the ... and also with other mnemonists who have been studied in the past. There was no evidence to suggest that T.E. has any unusual basic memory abilities; rather he employs mnemonic techniques to aid memory, and the evidence suggests that previous mnemonists who have been studied by psychologists have used very similar techniques." The "figure alphabet" employed by T.E. was used in Europe as early as the mid-1700s. The Hindus had a Sanskrit version even earlier. Basically, each digit is represented by a consonant sound or sounds: 1 ...
