... ). Though it overlaps to some degree the domains of physics and religion, parapsychology, as its name suggests, has its center of intellectual gravity in the disciplinary vicinity of psychology among the social sciences. Noetics, the study of consciousness, while clearly related to both psychology and parapsychology, leans in the direction of ontology, epistemology, and other philosophical ... , therefore, to be classified as one of the humanities rather than as one of the social sciences. Thanatology, the study of death and attitudes toward death, likewise has psychological affinities. But it also exhibits biological and religious overlaps which make it hard to classify on the spectrum. Two new disciplines whose ramifications are so broad that they defy placement are ... seems to me to be particularly commendable about anomalistics is the fact that it strongly counteracts the besetting sin of contemporary academia-- fragmentation. We live in an age in which psychologists, for example, find it difficult to talk not only with non-psychologists but even with one another: psychoanalysts and experimentalists, for example, share almost nothing with one another in ...

But the Aztecs were not the only people to remember what had happened to their ancestors during periods ... idea, in bringing these together, of the extent to which they would correspond to the fantasies of madness. According to MY thinking, they were the universal, archetypal, psychologically based symbolic themes and motifs of all traditional mythologies; and now from this paper of Dr. Perry I was learning that the same symbolic figures arise spontaneously from the broken-off, ...

MacKenzie, ... appearing in the pages of KRONOS as well.- LMG In Mankind in Amnesia, a manuscript unpublished at the time of his death, Immanuel Velikovsky offered his evaluation of the psychological condition of the human race. In this, his final opus, he built upon the earlier work of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, who had independently come to the conclusion ... without the other, and balance is the key. The "internal" and "external" factors we are considering do not correspond with the heredity/environment dichotomy of behavioral psychologists. Heredity and environment together are the negative pole to that force or quality which guides heredity and shapes environment from the inside out, as the invisible forcefield of a magnet arranges ...
54. 'Worlds in Collision' and the Prince of Denmark [SIS C&C Review $]
... in this century, applied anthropological insights into myth and ritual to literature. Their inspiration was Sir James Frazer's The Golden Bough, and it is from these two roots- social psychology and cultural anthropology- that archetypal and mythic criticism have grown, in such landmark works as Maud Bodkin's Archetypal Patterns in Poetry, Northrop Frye's Anatomy of Criticism and Joseph Campbell's The ... shifting critical judgement, but to enduring popular taste, the truest measure of a narrative's relevancy to life and thus of its truth quotient. The truth I refer to is not psychological, nor sociological, nor metaphysical, nor theological, but physical. It is natural truth, anthropological and geophysical. It is what really happened to us and our world, ... and then comments on the collective Greek mind, and therefore no one should object if a catastrophist studies a Greek vase in order to comment on the unconscious collective Greek mind. Psychologists study what individuals produce and do so in order to fathom what is occurring in their minds. Dr Velikovsky has psychoanalysed the histories, myths and religions of man in order to ...

Quoted in Ornstein, op. cit., The Psychology of Consciousness, San Francisco: Freeman, 1972, 58. 21. M. Le May and N. Geschwind, "Asymmetries of the Human Cerebral Hemispheres," in ... the theory seems to be based upon an old theory of human nature, the mind and body distinction, the reasons-and- emotions duality, the rational-irrational distinction, that has led psychological theory nowhere. The human can be viewed as fully nonrational, or as rational, but so can the earthworm. H. J. Morowitz has gone the limit and asks ... ? Medically, it may be irrelevant to say so: an ambulance, a hospital, a bolt, a cast, and in several months she will be skiing again. Psychologically, her case may have so many aspects as to defy analysis in a few lines; to quote her mother, "She's crazy to take chances like that, just to ...
56. A Catastrophic Reading of Western Cosmology [SIS C&C Review $]
... Newtonian science as a human construct founded on desire, like its predecessors. I will not, therefore, assess its validity as technology but try to perceive its hidden agenda as psychology, to see whether, because it directly follows the earlier systems as the next victor in the cosmology market place, its success is also due to the hidden comfort it provides ... perfect universe of interlocking spheres moving in perfect circles, eternally stable and beneficent and guided by an omniscient, omnipotent and eternal Prime Mover, could easily be interpreted as a hysterical psychological response to a time when, (if catastrophism is correct), the heavenly bodies did not move in regular orbits and the apparently random sequence of global devastations certainly did not ... created out of geometrical solids and music-like harmony by a non-catastrophic universal force. The appearance of the Pythagorean theory in Greece after Homer (if that is what happened) therefore becomes psychologically explainable, for it is a much more satisfying escape from the Triple Terror. It makes the heavens orderly. There is a fly in the Pythagorean ointment, however, and ...
57. The Great Terror [Kronos $]
... eighteenth century theorists and others, Manuel concluded that "the one emotion pervading primitive life as portrayed by the psychological historians of religion was terror."(6)! The psychology of fear which still absorbs the thought of the forum of the United Nations was already "an area of knowledge upon which eighteenth-century thought shed great light, though it was of ... the depth and open-mindedness of the study. The emotional roots of terror are not to be found in the surface soil of consciousness for they were long ago deeply implanted in the psychological fabric of mankind's makeup; and the nourishing sources of this terror have repeatedly been intimated by Velikovsky. "One of the most terrifying events in the past of mankind was the ... and collisions between stars, and eclipses of sun and moon, they were affrighted imagining the gods to be the causes of these things'."'(7) A psychologist of much later date still adhered to the fear theory. "It is unthinkable that fear should not be inherited in the flight of time... Indeed, I believe ...
58. HOMO SCHIZO I: Chapter 5: CULTURAL REVOLUTION [Quantavolution Website]
... . PROTO-CULTURE The question is, how could homo schizo, granted his rapid increase in numbers and territory, accomplish the acculturation of which we speak? We know something of his psychology. How would this originate a culture? What we have to demonstrate is that within a century or two, the major structures of culture would be necessarily, recognizably, and ... These conditions are disappearing; few tribal cultures are left outside the great society. Until recently, many tribes were 'resting' in the stone age. This is a mechanical and psychological judgement, not an ethical one. As Jules Henry and others have explained, their "psychic unity" is complete [6. When a culture achieves some tolerable mastery of ... out of dream and thought sequences can be managed. A culture-- a group mode of mentation and behavior-- arose promptly with homo schizo. Just as man became psychologically holistic upon his origination, so did he become culturally holistic. Human culture was global from its beginnings. Culture was schizoid and remains so. The expansion of homo schizo geographically ...
... of the last two decades have perpetuated this uniformitarian bias, it may be that Jaynes is justified in coining the new term "psycho-archaeology" to describe his innovative style of social psychology. In reviewing his own book, Jaynes notes that the overflow from it will now go into a second volume, to be published shortly. In his penultimate chapter, he ... , with the advent of farming, population grew so rapidly that people no longer knew all members of their village communities. The resulting estrangement threatened to produce social disorder. The psychological defense that early peasants developed against this threat was "bi-cameralism," which literally means a two-chambered condition. The "chambers" that Jaynes is referring to here are the right ... ) that they did it by operating in a schizoid rather than subjectively "conscious" state, I suggested "... that the megalith erectors were operating in a manner psychologically more antlike than manlike (as we normally understand that latter term)-- in short, that they labored almost exclusively in a state of protracted trance."(3 ...

... pressure, "the house of bondage", "the iron furnace" (Ex. 13:3, Deut. 4:20). From some involvement in depth psychology and Primal Therapy (in which adults consciously relive their birth experiences) I know that such language fittingly reflects the "burdens" inflicted on the foetus with the onset of " ... and its attendant events as a call to ancient Israel to abandon the false securities of polytheism. However, in the last two paragraphs, where Mr Maccoby explores "some important psychological aspects of the matter", his discussion seems to miss the mark. Mr Maccoby suggests that in the Bible the trauma of birth "is represented by the expulsion from Eden ... one person or by a few people. They are bound to occupy themselves with paradigmatic science in Kuhn's sense, getting lost in technicalities without ever gaining a new insight. Freudian psychologists study Freud instead of the human psyche; sociologists study Marx or somebody else; uniformitarian geologists tend to study textbooks instead of earth history. Similarly, a Velikovskian study group is ...
