131. GODS FIRE: CHAPTER EIGHT: THE ELECTRIC GOD [Quantavolution Website]
... for purposes other than harkening to the emanations from the sole source of the authentic God on the Ark. For common people, the sin of blasphemy is ordinarily a denial of the reality of the word, or ridicule of it. Bearing in mind this anthropological and psychological process, one can understand how the cult of the secret name of god developed and how the common sin and crime of blasphemy evolved. Does not the design of the Ark contradict the second commandment: it says "You shall not make for yourself a graven ... generally find themselves less in control of themselves and of the world about them, and less happy, than those who have accepted the authoritative complex of Yahwism or have resigned themselves to the coercion to accept the same. That this should be generally believed, even among psychologists after the manner of William James, does not make it so. It is ordinary to feel, when anxious, that "the grass grows greener on the other side of my fence." I would not deny, however, that one day a religion ...
132. Chapter 6: SYMBOLS AND SPEECH [Quantavolution Website]
... experiments to discover the origins of speech are difficult to contrive. Psamtik I of Egypt tried a similar experiment two thousand years earlier, and James IV of Scotland also did so two centuries later. And there now is a humanistic topic for a master's degree in educational psychology. Lingua Adamica, it came to be called, whatever it might be. Cultural agents teach the infant a language. The discipline is severe, rewards and penalties are numerous: "Speak our language or not at all." Teachers of immigrant children recognize ... largely symbolic, as with scientific, technical, and ordinary discourse, also with art, some myth, and a part of religion and magic. Ernst Dichter, a well-known human relations consultant, produced for the use of manufacturers and advertisers an encyclopedia devoted to the Psychological connotations of a great many industrial designs [2. Human speech, language, the 'vox humana' does not consist of written words. The written word is merely a representation of speech in another (and more constraining) medium a further level of symbolism, ...
133. THE VELIKOVSKY AFFAIR: CHAPTER 3: THE INCONSTANT HEAVENS [Quantavolution Website]
... forces, among which is the impact of meteorites [30. He realized that the resistance to accepting the alterability of the sky springs also from the fear that thereby moral law may be destroyed. For this reason he continues the discussion of this topic by delving into psychology and arguing along lines similar to those of Hume's ethics, that a feeling of sympathy among men can exist without traditional metaphysics [31. It is worth noting that his treatment of psychology touches upon the importance of childhood memories and upon the role of unconscious thinking ... move through the magnetic field permeating the solar system and the plasma winds that sweep through it, will come to quantitative analysis, too. With new claimants to participation in the mechanism of the solar system, the problem of its stability is brought into new light. PSYCHOLOGICAL PREMISES Because of his psychoanalytic training and experience Velikovsky was able to realize that men tend to shunt off as fables the accumulated memories and records of cosmic cataclysms. Even biblical fundamentalists do not accept at face value what is told in plain language in a book that ...
134. Viva Lamarck: Renewed Discussion on the Inheritance of Acquired Characteristics [Aeon Journal $]
... the philosophy of biology (52); and F. W. Jones, a comparative anatomist whose many books provide a wealth of evidence in favor of Lamarckian inheritance. (53) It is also worth noting that several of the greatest figures in the history of psychology-- many of whom were active during this period-- expressed a belief in Lamarckian inheritance, including Freud, Jung, Watson, McDougall, Bleuler, Pavlov and Piaget. (54) The writings of these men kept Lamarckism alive long after it had ... rejected by the majority of biologists. Why, it may be asked, did these distinguished researchers continue to adhere to a supposedly discredited form of inheritance? Their reasons were numerous and can only be briefly alluded to here. Among naturalists and psychologists alike there was a common belief that it was impossible to explain the remarkable instincts of animals without some direct transmission of the effects of experience. Freud summed up this view very succinctly: If the so-called instincts of animals-- which from the very beginning allow them to behave in their ...

... phenomena, such as multiple personality, are equally suggestive. What they imply is that, if a physically single body can exhibit psychologically plural consciousness, the converse may also obtain: physically plural bodies can exhibit psychologically single consciousness. In the urbanized world, the crowd psychology whereby "mass hysteria" makes a group of individuals appear to behave like a single "many-headed monster" is a manifestation of merged consciousness.(65) Another is the "mystical participation" seemingly experienced by preliterates as they join in the ritual ceremonies referred ... bodies, suggest that the brain is at most a tuning device for consciousness, and a dispensable one at that.(64) Other phenomena, such as multiple personality, are equally suggestive. What they imply is that, if a physically single body can exhibit psychologically plural consciousness, the converse may also obtain: physically plural bodies can exhibit psychologically single consciousness. In the urbanized world, the crowd psychology whereby "mass hysteria" makes a group of individuals appear to behave like a single "many-headed monster" is a manifestation ...
136. Collective Amnesia: A Brief History of the Concept [Kronos $]
... buried in myth come very close to Velikovsky's theory about mankind's repressed archaic memory, the reason for which, in turn, finds reinforcement in Vico's concept of imaginative universals. Whereas Velikovsky contends that any conscious recollection of the global cataclysms he describes has been thwarted by the psychological trauma induced by the events themselves, Vico maintains that many of man's key myths are the result of his primal ancestor's awe when confronted by fearful natural phenomena such as thunder.(10) And if both Vico and Velikovsky are correct, the great catastrophes depicted ... Moscow (M.D. 1921), his studies in Vienna with Dr. Wilhelm Stekel (one of Freud's influential protegés), and his practice in Haifa and Tel-Aviv as a psychoanalyst (until 1939). Most directly, it follows his long interest in the theoretical psychologies of Sigmund Freud and Carl G. Jung and his own analysis of mental life grounded in the concept of celestial catastrophism. Velikovsky evidently believes that what Jung refers to as "the collective unconscious"-- which is part of what Freud calls "the collective ...

... , Mesoamerican scholars, Orientalists, and students of social anthropology and mythology, was not solved in any one of these disciplines separately. 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. Thus I entered a field that should be ... as local 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. 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 --Cuvier; and ...

Rieff, Freud, ... of three articles dealing with the general theme of the Hegelian origins of Freud's social and political philosophy. The first article "Group Mind in Development" (KRONOS IV:4)-- dealt with what I called Freud's "phylogenic and ethnogenic dialectic," the psychological growth of mankind into the form of the modern state. This second article presents an exposition of Hegel's social and political philosophy so as to find the roots and paradigm of Freud's theory. It also attempts to show in what ultimate respects and conclusions Hegel's views may ...

140. Velikovsky And Cultural Amnesia [Pensee]
... the methodology. On the one hand, virtually no one was in the toils of acrimonious proof or disproof. On the other hand, virtually everyone seemed aware of the urgency of the theme. The symposium was organized by Prof. John Hamilton, chairman of the psychology department at Lethbridge, with the assistance of the physics department chairman, Prof. Earl Milton. There follow rough summaries of the eight papers given. 1) Professor Alan Gowans (chairman, department of history in art, University of Victoria). "Social ... of art history, ancient history, and history of science; clinical psychiatry, political science, and anthropology; Shakespearean studies, Egyptology, and classics. And the splicing of one of these onto another was the rule rather than the exception. The art historian made psychological concepts the backbone of his argument, while the psychiatrist focused on the art work of psychotics. The historian of science was concerned with political influences present at the foundations of modern geology, while the political scientist discussed a classical text. Both the classicist and anthropologist ...
