181. CHAOS AND CREATION: CHAPTER 08: SATURN'S CHILDREN [Quantavolution Website]
... been "natural", as aggressive people enslaved others and their kings expanded royal power generally on the basis of their especial powers over slaves. Since the desire to control others, as well as to control the gods, was so strong, there would be no psychological resistance to absolutism in government. There appear to have been no Saturnian monolithic civilizations; Tiahuanacu and Atlantis did not seem to have the kind of state that dynastic Egypt and Sumeria developed in the next age of Jove. Perhaps Saturn was peaceful, the Moon calm ... year-around Saturnalia. In the medieval "Feast of Fools" the Catholic hierarchy found itself often of two minds, caught up in the Saturnalian spirit and reproving it as pagan and anti-establishmentarian. The destructive-creative orgy was a complex of revolt against the gods succeeding Saturn, a psychologically terrified and disorderly recapitulation of chaos, and an expression of nostalgia for a better life once achieved, long-enjoyed, and irretrievably lost.

183. Letters [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... synthesis of heavenly clock-maker, angry despot and celestial geriatric. Few realise that the nineteenth-century materialist philosophy which once made a supernaturalist world-view seem outmoded is itself out of date today. Reputable scholars and scientists are now affirming that, in the light of modern physics, depth psychology and parapsychology, it is perfectly possible to hold a supernaturalist world-view without committing intellectual suicide. And, given such a world-view, we are not restricted to interpreting angels as the agents of supercivilisations (earthly or otherwise) in order to explain close encounters of the ... what I shall call autonomous non-physical realities. I apologise for the clumsiness of this expression, but I hope some readers will find it less question-begging than "angels" and "spiritual (or incorporeal) beings". Firstly, note for example a view-expressed by the psychologist C. G. Jung after a lifetime of studying the human mind and a strong interest in all forms of religious and psychic phenomena: "...I have never been inclined to think that our senses were capable of perceiving all forms of being. I have ...

However, Theodore Thass-Thienemann.... an expert on psycholinguistics, has shown that this right-good, left-bad polarization has been present for a very long time in the entire Indo-European language family, as well as in Hungarian, a non-Indo-European language. Further, psychologist Sylvan Tomkins... has shown that the underlying assumptions dividing the political Left and Right are also the basis for age-old ideological disputes in mathematics, philosophy, science, and child-rearing.

185. A Conversation with Barry Fell [Horus $]
... fell from heaven. The ancient record makes continuous references to major upheavals in Nature Dr. Fell: Are you interested in catastrophism as a sub-topic of your interests? Editor: Actually, as a mechanism that, if it proves true, will explain so much in psychology- in the same sense that skilled navigators prior to Columbus' time explain how what you're studying happened- to account for certain ideas and traditions in the collective memory- myths, rituals, and so on- and great catastrophes look like the best idea, ... Hotu Matua had escaped in two long-boats with a handful of people from this horrendous catastrophe going on in the Pacific. This was the motive given for moving to Easter Island in the first place. It's characteristic of the myths of all peoples and the problem for the psychologist is to rationalize that. Dr. Fell: That might be a second-hand version of that myth, of course. New Zealand was settled much more recently and we have a much more logical myth- not myth at all- it's a history- and New ...
186. Chapter 4: DISPLACEMENT AND OBSESSION [Quantavolution Website]
... " of ideas that are our own. Much more could be made out of the simple remarks quoted, too, but we must move along. The qualities of humans that one cherishes are aspects of the qualities one dislikes. And, because the empirical science of psychology has been built upon what is problematical and evident, the most helpful terms may be those conferred upon disliked qualities. The "good" comes out of "bad," so to speak. One takes what one gets, as in evolution where the marvelous ... , pursue the logical line of reestablishing the human as an effective mammal. It is not our choice whether to vary from it. We have no recourse; if we seek to follow the smithereens of our explosion of attachments, we shall go to pieces ourselves, psychologically and shortly afterwards as living organisms. We must stay at home while our displacements travel adventurously, and here recompose the hominidal character as best one may: hence, obsession and compulsion, or obsessed compulsiveness. Obsessions are linked to habit. They are deemed " ...

... shall pay for him." Hephaestus cannot refuse. "It is not permitted me to say 'no', nor would it be proper." Why? Is this mere politeness, to move the plot along? But a plot in literature is as determined by psychology as falling rock by gravity. Is it respect for a feared uncle, brother of Zeus? Hephaestus once sympathized with a rebellion against Zeus; he is clamorously angry at his parents now. No; the end is foreseen because that is the way it happened ... well is the absence of humans in the cast. This precludes a dangerous conflict of interests; one need not fear the overstepping of bounds. Which is not to say that the audience is not laughing at the gods. It is, but by the completely safe psychological technique of displacement and projection. The Greek sense of humor, itself derived from the way its theomachy is constructed, writes into the gods' behavior what they would laugh at in themselves and at the same time feels dissociated from that behavior by its imputation to ...
188. How I Arrived at My Concepts [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... I did not read the book, and only opened it at a few places and chanced to read that according to somebody ? s view, Mt. Sinai was a volcano. In the summer of 1937 I was in Paris to read a paper at the International Psychological Congress. In the Bibliotheque Nationale I read the articles of Freud in Imago about Moses. When in the Spring of 1939 the articles appeared as a book, Moses and Monotheism, I bought a copy in a Tel-Aviv bookstore. The reading of this book brought ... read the pamphlet of Charles Beke (1) (the author of the idea referred to by Bar Droma), who maintained that Mount Sinai was a volcano. At the occasion of a small social gathering at the home of Dr. Paul Federn, the renowned psychologist, I put the question before a visitor, an Egyptologist from Vienna, and before Dr. Walter Federn, also an Egyptologist, the son of Paul Federn. The former asked the latter where is the reference about the Nile turning to blood? (I ...
189. THE BURNING OF TROY: PART ONE: HISTORICAL DISTURBANCES: CHAPTER FIVE: THE CATASTROPHIC FINALE OF THE MIDDLE BRONZE AGE [Quantavolution Website]
... interest in catastrophe occurs, the sciences of pala-psychology, pala-politics, pala-theology, archaeoastronomy, geology, and history need to reexamine many of their findings an theories. The methodologies employed in ancient studies require both intermeshing and invention. An ideal archaeologist needs to know something of psychology and geo-physics, anthropology and astronomy, the history and science of human management. (I could make the ideal even more impossible, but why go on save to underline the need for interdisciplinary cooperation.) Claude Schaeffer, a generation ago already, was writing ... swept into or been drowned by a Baltic Sea formed at this time. Offering themselves for mid-second millennium construction and abandonment are hundreds of megalithic monuments throughout the vast area. The astronomical interest of these peoples is now proven. But, even if one is not a psychologist, one cannot think it is normal for people to cut and lug 100-ton stones to do a job that a few sticks of wood would accomplish-- watching the Sun and Moon. I think that around this time, in despair and disgust, the survivor ...

... absurd. Nevertheless, I shall proceed, on and on, until if I fail to validate the relationship between the scenarios of drama and disaster, I shall have opened up new lines of thought about ancient history, dramaturgy, religion, human memory, and the psychology of the unconscious. Whereupon, since the cast of characters in the "Love Affair" is composed of celestial bodies, it needs to be explained how they can move about in the skies as they moved in the opera theater of ancient Phaeacia. The movements ... renewed. The stupefaction and manias of the survivors are understandable. Older, similar experiences are reinforced in the memories of the group. That every aspect of human feeling, thought, culture and creativity should be affected is to be expected. To the explanation of these psychological and cultural transformations, the next chapters turn. They continue, at the same time and to the degree possible, with the exegesis of the torrid Love Affair of Moon and Mars. Notes (Chapter 13: How the Gods Fly) 1. R. ...
