1. The Atlantis Blueprint [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:2 (Dec 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents World Wide Web focus The Atlantis Blueprint www.flem-ath.com Every summer solstice thousands of pilgrims gather at sacred sites; Stonehenge, the Great Pyramid, Machu Picchu and many others to pay respect to the past, hoping perhaps, to merge in some way with the mysterious power represented by the great megaliths. It seems that a long lost truth lies just beyond our grasp, hidden within the lines and crevices of these massive stones. Many feel certain that we might recapture that elusive past if only we could find the key. In Atlantis Blueprint we will show how these ancient structures are ultimately linked to a vast geographic survey. We have deciphered the code which ties these mysterious sites together as part of an ambitious enterprise undertaken by scientists from Atlantis. Table of Contents Preface: Coins in a fountain- earth dragons- Feng shui- geomancy- cording the Temple- from priest-craft to science- the blueprint- Rand and Colin's collaboration. Chapter One: Hapgood's Secret Quest for Atlantis. ...
2. THE DEVINE SUCCESSION: PART I. THEOMACHY: CHAPTER FIVE: LEGENDS AND SCRIPTURE [Quantavolution Website]
... Quantavolution.Org E-MAIL: email@example.com TABLE OF CONTENTS THE DEVINE SUCCESSION PART I. THEOMACHY: by Alfred de Grazia CHAPTER FIVE LEGENDS AND SCRIPTURE The biggest difference between myth or legends and sacred scriptures is that the latter are selected legends, called "divinely inspired or spoken" by their believers, which have been carefully guarded and edited to pursue the continuous but also continually changing religious goals of their custodians. Myth and legends, not so regarded, or whose line of custodians died out, were left like abandoned children to wander through time as casual history and unconstrained imagination, until caught up by scientific mythological studies. Giambattista Vico was the first modern scholar to perceive this process when, two centuries ago, he wrote: "The fables in their origins were true and severe narrations, whence mythos, fable, was defined as vera narratio (a true account).. But because they were originally for the most part gross, they gradually lost their original meanings, were then altered, subsequently became improbable, after that obscure, then scandalous, and ...

4. Saturn's Sacred Mountain [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VIII:1 (Jan 1986) Home¦ Issue Contents INTERACTION Saturn's Sacred Mountain Dwardu Cardona It was bad enough to see critics burden Immanuel Velikovsky with ideas he never really entertained, only to have them ridiculed together with the man who supposedly formulated them. It is however much worse to have a supporter ofthe man burden him in this manner, no matter what the intent may be. While he may have meant well, Charles Seitz is guilty of nothing less. According to Seitz: [1 Immanuel Velikovsky proposed that Saturn was in a stationary position at the North Pole until the time of the Deluge, when it became a nova. Behind Saturn was Jupiter and the rest of the planets. Where, may I ask, did Velikovsky ever propose anything of the sort? Not only were most of the ideas delineated above entirely alien to Velikovsky, he was emphatically against such notions when these were proposed by others. Parts of the above scenario were independently presented by David Talbott and myself. [2 Velikovsky, who ...
5. The Female Star [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon V:3 (Dec 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents The Female Star Ev Cochrane I am frequently asked why anyone should care about ancient myth? The answer, quite simply, is that for many millennia myth served as the primary means of recording and communicating ancient man's most fundamental beliefs regarding the nature of the cosmos, history, and the origin of the sacred. In this sense, ancient myth constitutes an important chapter in the intellectual history of our species and is thus a ripe field of study for all students of anthropology and evolutionary psychology. If it turns out that myth also preserves valuable clues for understanding the recent history of our Solar System, it should occasion little surprise. For those ingrained with the modern prejudice that "myth" connotes something analogous to fiction, this statement will no doubt seem preposterous. Yet there are good reasons to believe that the modern understanding of myth is itself a fable-- that for ancient man myth was actually more akin to "true" history. It can be shown, in fact ...
6. Letters [SIS C&C Review $]
... Of course, there is no answer to "What if..." questions. But Velikovsky's followers seem to be increasing, and his name will be remembered. Who knows how soon it may find the place it deserves in scientific annals? Congratulations again. Keep up the good work. J. JOSEPHINE LEAMER Denver, Colorado New Year Resolution Sir, In SISR III:4, p. 91, an excerpt was reprinted from Everyday Life of the Maya by Ralph Whitlock, which tells us the following about the Mayan sacred year: "The second calendar was concerned with the Tzolkin and was regarded as sacred. It consists of 20 'months' of 13 days. The total of days was thus 260, a figure which bears no relationship to any natural calendar. How or why it originated is a mystery." Although the possibility that in very ancient times (before the Venus catastrophes) the year may have consisted of 260 days cannot be dismissed too lightly, I think there may be a more straightforward explanation for the origin of the sacred ...
7. THE BURNING OF TROY: PART THREE: WORKING OF THE MIND: CHAPTER EIGHTEEN: HOLY DREAMTIME IN WONGURI LAND [Quantavolution Website]
... CHAPTER EIGHTEEN HOLY DREAMTIME IN WONGURI LAND Towards the Napier Peninsula of Arnhem Land in Australia, there dwell a native people of the stone age, whose singing is the most developed of their arts. They are of the Wonguri linguistic group of the Mandzikai clan. Their traditional songs are rich in myth and often very long. They are arranged in groups to form particular cycles. Although complete in itself, each song is related to a central theme. It reconstructs some event or portrays some happening of the traditional post. There are sacred and secular song cycles, songs known only to the men or to the women respectively, or those of interest where both sexes join in and children take part. There are sacred ceremonial songs, secret songs, of the women, camp songs, love magic songs, children's songs. There are gossip songs and mourning songs, and songs for every event in a person's life. Nearly all songs, even when... they are presented by one particular man in any given area, are for the collective entertainment or ...
8. The Spring Of Ares [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 3 (Summer 1986) Home¦ Issue Contents The Spring Of Ares Ev Cochrane KADMOS A crucial clue to Kadmos' history has been overlooked by the countless interpreters of his myth his intimate association with Ares, the indomitable god of war. Kadmos' celebrated palace, the Kadmeia, was built upon a hill of Ares near the Areia, a spring sacred to the war god. These two items, the spring and hill of Ares, are integral elements of the Kadmos legend. Kadmos and Ares are closely associated in Theban tradition. Ares was the father of Kadmos' wife, Harmonia, as well as the progenitor of the dragon slain by Kadmos.(1) Kadmos' relation to Ares has drawn little attention, presumably because Ares was known to be a god while most commentators have proceeded upon the assumption that Kadmos was a mortal. But if, as I have suggested.(1a) Kadmos was originally a Theban god analogous to Dionysus, who was also associated with Ares, the added association ...
9. The Garden of Venus [Aeon Journal $]
... Ev Cochrane The greatest goddess of the ancient Iranians was known as Anahita. Alternately described as a warrior, agent of fertility, and granter of glory or "strength" to heroes, Anahita was truly a goddess for all seasons. Her intimate association with kingship made the goddess a permanent fixture of investiture rituals. [1 Under the auspices of the Persian empire, Anahita's cult became disseminated across much of Asia Minor. [2 The most complete description of the goddess is that found in the fifth Yasht of the Avesta, the sacred book of the Iranians. There Anahita is made the source of a fabulous celestial spring from whence originated the world's waters. "1. Ahura Mazda spake unto Spitama Zar-athushtra, saying: 'Offer up a sacrifice, O Spitama Zarathushtra! unto this spring of mine, Ardvi Sura Anahita, the wide-expanding and health-giving, who hates the Daevas and obeys the laws of Ahura, who is worthy of sacrifice in the material world, worthy of prayer in the material world; the life-increasing and holy, the herd-in-creasing and holy, the ...
10. The Cosmic Mountain [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... name Colhuacan. Its most familiar representatives were Olympus and Zion. But does not Olympus refer to the well-known peak in Macedonia, and Zion to the small hill in Palestine? In truth the mythical Olympus and the mythical Zion are the same mountain; only their terrestrial representations differ. When the ancients sanctified a familiar hill, giving it the name of the primeval mount, they sought to characterize their own land as a duplication of the "homeland." The local mountain took its mythical attributes from the cosmic peak. Always the sacred mount rises "higher than any mountain on earth," attaining the polar centre and functioning as the cosmic axis. Legends of the heaven-sustaining peak say that the creator-- the central sun-- ruled his kingdom from the mountaintop, where stood the original paradise with its four life-bearing streams. Egypt According to the long-standing belief of Egyptologists, the sun-god rises over the eastern horizon each morning and sinks below the western horizon each evening. In widely accepted translations of the texts, one repeatedly finds such wording as "horizon ...
