121. Alfred de Grazia's Grazian Archive [SIS Internet Digest $]
... Sky. An early symposium of the 1970's from Lethbridge University, Canada, planned and edited by Professor Earl R. Milton, concurrent with the granting of an honorary doctorate to Immanuel Velikovsky, the eminent catastrophist. Addresses on various fields (art symbolism, astro-physics, psychology of forgetting tragedy, Catastrophic symbolism in Shakespeare, etc., by authors from Canadian and American universities.

122. Letters [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... Frank C. Tribbe's letter "Before Sheldrake" (SISW 4:4, p. 35), with keen interest. An earlier predecessor of Dr Harold S. Burr and F. S. C. Northrop was Carl Gustav Jung, the father of analytical psychology: "Psychic structures are determinants of form or pre-existent ground plan, which are inherited psychic structures [morphogenetic fields which point to a definite physiological and anatomical predisposition." (Psychological Types (1921), reprinted Princeton, 1971, p. 444)- ... A. Concon, M.D., Memphis, USA Enough of Nit-picking? Dear Sir, At the risk of appearing to be a latter-day Humpty Dumpty, I would like to reply to Eric Crew's comment about my choice of words. Strictly speaking, Crew has a point that the terminology in my letter (SISW 4:4, p. 32) apparently ignores other non-gravitational effects. However, this is a strict constructionist perspective which has not always been adhered to in Velikovskian discussions. My term "electromagnetic forces", not ...
... unacceptable thought to most. Yet, how else but by valid psychological and historical methods could he have anticipated so many discoveries no one else expected? Velikovsky's rationale and its psychological roots were not, after all, so difficult to understand. Anyone with basic reading in psychology could have understood his reasoning and that the tests requested from the astronomers were primarily to confirm or deny the validity of his new approach in psychoanalysis. But his critics chose not to emphasize this or that a major breakthrough in psychological science may have occurred- that ... was that the cataclysmic events had somehow left a permanent impression in the human mind. What lay most repressed in the modern unconscious was terror of catastrophe from the skies; not the primal instincts as proposed by Freud nor the abstract evolutionary archetypes of Jung's theory. The psychological illness of humankind lay primarily in a deep collective amnesia for upheavals in the natural environment and not in the nature of the race itself. In the context of his theory and the psychoanalytic principal that repressed traumas resist attempts to bring them to memory, Velikovsky had ...
124. Heretics, Dogmatists and Science's Reception of New Ideas [Kronos $]
... in consonance with Pfeiffer on the nature of science. Another appealing notion about the reception of Worlds in Collision is that the hostility resided in Velikovsky's challenging the widely-held belief in the essentially eternal stability of the solar system. Not until discovering two obscure articles dealing with the psychology of scientific prejudice and the forces against creativity in science was the stability argument convincing. Before divulging the contents of these two pivotal articles, I would like to cite several sources that shed revealing light on the reception of Velikovsky's ideas. THE GROWTH OF SCIENCE IN ... )... In the works of Newton the doctrine of the eternal stability of the solar system is clearly presented as an assumption based not on scientific data but on faith in a providential order.(31)... Laplace was interpreted to meet the psychological need to believe in the eternal stability of the solar system.(32)... When the "Velikovsky affair" is considered in the light of the history of science it loses its puzzling qualities. Velikovsky saw what other scholars were not able to ...
125. THE BURNING OF TROY: PART FIVE: COMMUNICATING A SCIENTIFIC MODEL: CHAPTER : A COSMIC DEBATE [Quantavolution Website]
... hand, Germans have to remember the Nazi experience in order to think straight and correct themselves; on the other hand they have to forget and distort it in order for life to be tolerable. But now, you see, we have entered the fields of educational psychology and political psychology. IV And so we move into a fourth large category of the fields of knowledge, the social science. A related field of study is that of political institutions. How were the state, law and order, and administration invented? Do ... form, relieves the mind of the people concerning them. What people do and do not forget, and what they should and should not forget, are of course important problems, and, if revolutionary primevalogy can throw light upon stress, memory, and forgetting, psychologists will be grateful, as was a German psychiatrist with whom I discussed last summer the question of controlling the memory of Nazism. On the one hand, Germans have to remember the Nazi experience in order to think straight and correct themselves; on the other hand ...
126. Catastrophism and Anthropology [SIS C&C Review $]
... occurring was to have the sun circle in the sky' [7. According to Wasserman, the Aztec flying game was a mimetic dramatisation of the Sun's movement, intended to hinder the repetition of yet another threatening disaster. The fear of a prospective cataclysm and its psychological 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 ... focused his attention on the impact of these catastrophes on ancient cultures and religions. By analysing ancient cults and rituals, he drew conclusions about the catastrophic past of mankind [60. Recently, Gunnar Heinsohn further developed this line of thought, trying to bolster this assumption psychologically. According to Heinsohn, many sacrificial and catastrophe rituals are to be understood as a playful reaction following overwhelming natural disasters. What these catastrophes did not destroy is likely to be destroyed by the survivors themselves since they kill one another out of apocalyptic panic. It ...
127. THE VELIKOVSKY AFFAIR: CHAPTER 6: THE SCIENTIFIC RECEPTION SYSTEM [Quantavolution Website]
... in all applied fields that are related. Those who operate in the name of this model tend to deny a sociology of science. The concept of sociology implies that men are conditioned in their behaviour by social factors lying outside of the intellect. The scope of the psychology of science is similarly reduced, creating a constant tendency to believe in absolute realities. Furthermore, since those under the rationalistic spell claim that after all 'there is an objective method of testing reality and any reasonable person can see the truth when it is presented to ... unconscious self-doubts. Probably also truth today does not enter a reservoir of science but only a separate pool. Therefore the indeterminacy model can affirm that truth does not enter as a matter of course not because it is deliberately excluded, but from logical, social, and psychological conditions beyond current means of control. The model suggests that the spirit of the times and customs dictate what will and will not be science. Few or many people will acquire the habits of inquiry. They will produce results, theoretical and practical, and they ...
128. My Challenge to Conventional Views in Science [Pensee]
... , by the people of Lapland, the Voguls of Siberia, the aborigines of tropical Africa, the Tahitians in the South Pacific? Like the early memory of a single man, so the early memory of the human race belongs into the domain of the student of psychology. Only a philosophically and historically, but also analytically trained mind can see in the mythological subjects their true content-- a mind that learned in long years of exercise to understand the dreams and phantasies of his fellow man. Why is theomachy the central theme ... catastrophe, the simultaneous change of climate all over the globe thirty-four and twenty-seven centuries ago, the drop of the level of the ocean and many other phenomena observed, could not be accounted for but by paroxysms in which the entire Earth was involved. Bettmann Archive A psychological situation provoked the change in the attitude of the scholarly world with the beginning of the Victorian age. The founders of the sciences of geology-- Buckland, Sidgwick, and Murchinson (who gave the classification of formations used today); of vertebrate paleontology- ...

130. On Mankind in Amnesia [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... On Mankind in Amnesia I admit to having being guilty of frequently putting aside this my study in the collective psychology of the human race for the benefit of other research, being urged by my readers to complete Ages in Chaos, being urged by my collaborators to complete Test of Time,. the record of confirmations in the fields of geology, astronomy and archaeology; I myself, however, consider this one, of all the works with which I am being occupied, to be of perhaps the greatest urgency. First I ... Earth in Upheaval primarily it has to do with the future, a future not removed by thousands or tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of years, but the imminent future, on whose threshold we now stand. The theme of Mankind in Amnesia is the psychological aspect of that one theory which unfolds itself in so many directions, as far apart as the theory of evolution, origin of religion, and celestial mechanics implying the participation of electricity and magnetism besides gravitation and inertia. This psychological aspect is called upon to answer ...
