81. Epic Postscript [Kronos $]
... as Americans immersed themselves in a vicarious religion of cinematic spiritual fantasy. [* It would appear that Americans resorted to the classic principle of epic conversion in order to sublimate the psychological effects of the War years; film became the perfect medium. See "Cosmology and Psychology," KRONOS 1, No. I (Spring, 1975), the section "The Fountain of Forgetfulness." Between 1949 and 1965, a veritable spate of Epics appeared on the American theater screen, possibly peaking in 1959 with the unparalleled Academy Award ... the Biblical Blockbuster. it was not until the box-office triumph of the war, violence, crime, and disaster movies- beginning in the late sixties- that Religious Spectaculars capitulated and virtually disappeared from the repertoire of American cinema.(1) Here is an interesting psychological phenomenon indeed, for while American movies have always been well represented by the horror, monster, science-fiction, war, crime, violence, and disaster genre, it was the Religio-heroic theme of the post-War years which captured (until now) the largest audiences and ...
82. The Acceptance of Correct Ideas in Science [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... destruction alike. This is, in my view, the main cause of the emotional outbursts that have followed Worlds in Collision. The idea of a great fear living in man since the days of the great catastrophes presented itself early to me I was a student of psychology before I became a student of history, natural history, and folklore: and I was aware that there is some “blocking,” in the psychoanalytic sense, to see obvious things. Why have students of mythology failed to discover why the gods of the ... his telescope, he recognized a structure similar to that described by Copernicus: a sun encircled by planets. But his open defense of the Copernican theory caused a storm of opposition. What was so unacceptable in the heliocentric system? Most generally it threatened humankind ’ s psychological need for the feeling of security, itself most probably based on a deep hidden insecurity. A moving Earth is a less secure place than an unmoveable one. Additionally, mankind was denied the central role in the universe. This not only was injurious to his ...

84. S.I.S. Spring Meeting, 1983 [SIS C&C Review $]
... ." Alfred de Grazia: "I feel that Man has originated non-rationally, that all of his rationality is but a sublimation of his essentially non-rational mind" De Grazia then presented a neat linkup between these catastrophic possibilities and the current "split-brain" understanding of Man's psychology. Although the major difference separating us from other animals is psychological, this apparently enormous leap of humanization "could have occurred through only a small physiological twist. This twist is the secret of my theory of 'Homo Schizo' and it consists of a microsecond delay ... interdisciplinary research. He began by briefly reviewing Immanuel Velikovsky's Mankind in Amnesia (1982) and Julian Jaynes' The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind (USA: 1976, UK: 1979). While both works provide valuable insights into the human psychological make-up, they fall short of a satisfying explanation for the origin of the human psyche. In particular, while he agreed with Velikovsky's proposition that our ancestors were severely traumatised by a number of global catastrophes, de Grazia eschewed any idea that by stripping off the ...

... attaching 1. A short resumé of my paper read at the international psycholog. Congress, Paris, Juli 1937, and by adjoining 2. A chapter about jelousy (the only chapter printed). The book about the hatred is a new approach to the social psychology of the psychology of the unconsciousness. It reveals the most important part which the not finished struggle between the masculine and feminine ingredients of an embryo continues to play in the life and activities of a single personality and of the collectives. This idea brings light upon ... others are implied. A chapter is dedicated to the modern warfare; another- to Hitler with quotations from his description of his childhood which brought together make clear the origin of his ideas. My ? Hatred of Nations ? is, I think, the only one psychological approach to the problem of war and peace in existence; it opens a better chance for influencing than the sermon of the peace-preachers since ever. ? The Presse Universitaire de France ? (Alcan& Co) wrote; to me before the beginning of the war ...

... human consciousness did not begin far back in animal evolution but is a learned process brought into being out of an earlier hallucinatory mentality by cataclysm and catastrophe only 3000 years ago and still developing. The implications of this new scientific paradigm extend into virtually every aspect of our psychology, our history and culture, our religion-- and indeed, our future. In the words of one reviewer, it is "a humbling text, the kind that reminds most of us who make our livings through thinking, how much thinking there is ... by some and acclaimed by others as one of the most important books of the 20th century, it remains as controversial today as when it was first published. The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind (1976, 1990), by Princeton University psychologist Julian Jaynes. At the heart of this book is the revolutionary idea that human consciousness did not begin far back in animal evolution but is a learned process brought into being out of an earlier hallucinatory mentality by cataclysm and catastrophe only 3000 years ago and still developing ...

... . A complete but incredible case can be built up from an ancient chant that has Mars, Moon, Venus, and Earth in close and destructive encounters. God's Fire: Moses and the Management of Exodus. I have found no book that deals adequately with the psychology of Moses, and therefore have portrayed fully the workings of his mind. No study has properly embraced Moses in his two great capacities as a manager and scientist, and so I have reconstructed these his qualities as well. Furthermore, the Exodus and Wanderings, ... shaped the globe. A riveting theory of the explosion of the Moon from Earth in recent times, accompanying the global fracture and rafting of the continents.

88. Warts On Demand? [Science Frontiers Website]
... for Gravitz had to go all the way back to 1924 to find accounts of warts being induced by suggestion. This scientific neglect of the supply side of wart economics is unfortunate in the view of Gravitz, because here is a mild affliction involving both a virus and psychology that can be studied easily. The knowledge gained might be applicable to some cancers, which also seem to involve viruses and psychology. (Gravitz, Melvin A.; "The Production of Warts by Suggestion as a Cultural Phenomenon," American Journal of Clinical ... be banished from one side of the body, leaving those on the other side intact, if the hypnotist suggests such asymmetry! What has been lacking in the psychosomatic story, according to Gravitz, is evidence that warts can also be produced by suggestion. Evidently modern psychologists have been content with curing warts, for Gravitz had to go all the way back to 1924 to find accounts of warts being induced by suggestion. This scientific neglect of the supply side of wart economics is unfortunate in the view of Gravitz, because here is ...
89. Are ufo abductions akin to ndes? [Science Frontiers Website]
... abductions with NDEs (Near-Death Experiences). Here is an abstract of his 1994 paper published in the Journal of Near-Death Studies. "This article proposes an integrated psychodynamic perspective to account in part for a variety of similarities between near-death experiences and UFO abductions. The psychodynamic psychology of these experiences implies that their "realness" is mainly a function of that psychology, rather than primarily of an objectifiable external reality. Clinical and research examples highlight the theoretical and practical usefulness of this model." (Twemlow, Stuart W.; " ... ," Journal of Near-Death Studies, 12:205, 1994. As abstracted in: Exceptional Human Experience, 14:261, 1996. Address of the latter: 414 Rockledge Road, New Bern, NC 28562.) Comments. If one prunes away the psychological verbiage, Twemlow seems to be saying that in the minds of the percipients, NDEs and UFO abduction experiences are pretty much the same; that is, both phenomena are mental and not physical. However, in the same issue of the Journal of Near-Death Studies ...

Peter Gretener (U. of Calgary), discussing continuity and discontinuity in earth science, suggests that some geological processes do not proceed at slow rates, but that detection of these may he difficult, and a psychologist, Peter Chadwick of the University of Strathclyde, considers the same problem with regard to the mechanisms of perception and the geologist himself. Chadwick stresses the advantages of interpreting geological processes in both a continuous and a discontinuous way. A final point of interest among others ...
