101. The River of Ocean [SIS C&C Review $]
... through comparison with similar epics from other parts of the world, but that is beside the point. What, then, is the truth about the serpent of Midgard? Of the encounter discussed above, I will say nothing further since this is a topic that is best reserved for a separate paper. What concerns us in this discussion is the identity of Jormungand. Who, or what, did this entity represent? Circular serpent motif on the interior of a food basin from Sikyatki in the South-western United States. Reproduced from The Saturn Myth [26 with the kind permission of David N. Talbott The water-enclosing serpent from the Codex Cortesianus (illustration: D. Cardona) 3. The Encircling Serpent Jormungand was called the serpent of Midgard because he encircled Midgard. This came about when Odin, fearful of Jormungand's ever-growing stature flung, the serpent into the sea that surrounded Midgard [17. There the serpent continued to grow until, like the sea itself, he completely circumscribed Midgard 'and was able to grasp his own tail' [18. For that reason ...

... . Others argued that uniformitarian processes and slow evolution by adaptation of species could explain the geological record as we find it. The latter school gained the day and their premises came to be widely taught. A corollary result was a loss of interest in biblical descriptions of catastrophes and a general disregard for tales of other ancient cultures regarding active planetary gods. In 1950, with publication of Immanuel Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision. things began to change In this controversial book Velikovsky listed four eras of domination of heaven and Earth by the planetary gods Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Mars. He described the last two of these in detail, relying heavily on old writings, mythology and his own revised chronology of ancient Middle East history, plus references to the geological record. His work aroused a heated and negative reaction within several branches of science. In rebuttal he wrote several books on Ages in Chaos, focusing on Middle East chronology and Earth in Upheaval, describing geological evidence of catastrophes he believed to have occurred in recent millennia, adding many short articles in which he offered ...
103. Saturn: Source of Measure [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:1 (Sep 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents Saturn: Source of Measure www.sonic.net/bernard/saturn.html After studying the metrology of ancient monuments around the world, we have recovered significant mathematical correlations between the dimensions geometry, and geographic locations of many of the great sites of antiquity. The following framework we regard as the Canon of Measure, the basic tool of decoding the monuments. The Canon unifies Time, Distance and Number with the dynamics of Nature. The implications of the framework from which the Canon is derived are beyond the scope of this brief presentation, however the authors welcome further inquiry into the potentials of its application in many disciplines: art, architecture, ancient literature, and the physical sciences too. Saturn, Source of Measure: Of all the planets in the solar system, Saturn is the most rigorous, the most regular and the most stable in its orbit. Its path exhibits the least deviation and is able to absorb the perturbations and disturbances of space more than any other body in the solar ...
104. Khima and Kesil [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Review Vol III No 3 (Winter 1978/79) Home¦ Issue Contents Khima and Kesil Immanuel Velikovsky Copyright (c) 1978, 1979 I. VELIKOVSKY When identifying the biblical "Khima" as Saturn and "Kesil" as Mars, Dr Velikovsky promised support,for this interpretation in a later work. The paper below outlines the grounds on which these identifications were made. In the Tractate Brakhot of the Babylonian Talmud it is said that the Deluge was caused by two stars that fell from Khima toward the Earth. The statement reads: "When the Holy One decided to bring the Deluge on the Earth He took two stars from Khima and [hurling them against the Earth brought the Deluge on the Earth." [1 The sentence is said in the name of RABBI SAMUEL. This Rabbi Samuel was regarded as a great authority in the field of astronomy, actually as the Talmudic authority in this science. The Tractate Brakhot so explicitly points to the cause of the Deluge that, before classifying the narrative in Genesis in its ...

106. Child of Saturn (Part V) [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. X No. 3 (Summer 1985) Home¦ Issue Contents Child of Saturn (Part V) Dwardu Cardona Copyright 1985 by Dwardu Cardona 24. Anat Our quest for the progenitor of Venus has led us from an analytical study of the Persian Anahita to the Canaanite and Carthaginian deities, Anat and Tanit.(1) Shall we fare better in our attempt to unmask Venus' real parent through an investigation of these deities? The case for Anat, with whom we shall commence, is straightforward enough. As Immanuel Velikovsky pointed out, a Cyprian inscription identifies Anat with the Greek Athene(2) who, despite Bob Forrest's contention to the contrary,(3) has been ably demonstrated to have been an alias of the Venerian goddess.(4) But we ask for more. Like the Venerian deities of other nations, Anat was a goddess of love and war.(5) What we know of her comes mostly, but not solely, from the tablets discovered at Ras Shamra, the ancient Ugarit, ...
... a doughnut shaped nebular cloud of ionized dust and gases lying past the orbit of Pluto. Cometary discharges could also occur between the Sun and ionized matter of the zodiacal disc which rings the Sun. The major theoretical result was that charged comet nuclei are attracting the dust and gases in the comet tail and are not melting away as proposed in the IBCM. That is, comets are evolving into the planets, moons, and asteroids of our solar system. Part I further extended concepts introduced in an earlier paper(1) that Saturn and its ring system (and Jupiter to a lesser extent) exhibit star-like properties including electrical discharges between its rings and in its atmosphere. The star-like properties are necessarily a result of localized fusion reactions in the gas planets' atmospheres which are ignited by energetic lightning bolts (which have been detected by Voyagers I and II). The analogy was made between the Saturn-ring and Sun-zodiacal disc systems. Part I should be read with its footnotes and references to put Parts II and III (in press) into proper perspective. Part ...
108. The Mythical History of the Comet Venus (Part I) [Aeon Journal $]
... reasoning, in other words, must proceed from the fullest possible consideration of historical data. Which is to say, there is little value in contriving abstract physical models, then attempting to project these models onto the ancient experience. Mere physical theory allows for limitless possibilities. Hence, it is not significant that a model may "work" in a theoretical sense. The obvious prior question is: did it happen? To reiterate the general outline of our mythically-based model: at the heart of the observed planetary configuration is the stationary Saturn, remembered as the central sun and creator-king at the celestial pole. Enclosing Saturn was a spectacular band, seen as the visible dwelling (crown, temple, city, kingdom, world wheel) of the ancient sun god, and presenting earth witnesses with a brightly illuminated half-circle or crescent. Produced by reflected light from the solar orb and revolving around the stationary Saturn with each turn of the Earth on its axis, the crescent grew bright as it descended to the left of Saturn and the surrounding sky darkened.

... . X No. 2 (Winter 1985) Home¦ Issue Contents Ejections, Resonances, and Inversions Dwardu Cardona Copyright (c) 1984 by Dwardu Cardona (Although the writer wishes to burden no one with the statements contained in this paper, he wishes to thank the following persons for their assistance in its preparation: Lewis M. Greenberg; Frederic B. Jueneman; C. J. Ransom; Lynn E. Rose; Raymond C. Vaughan.) The title of one of my current KRONOS serializations- "Child of Saturn''(1)- seems to have given some of my readers a false impression. I first noticed this in the pages of the SIS Workshop where the editor added a footnote to one of Hugh Eggleton's papers- "Did Saturn Explode Twice?".(2) In reference to Eggleton's statement that "Venus was undoubtedly born of Jupiter," the editor appended the words: "But see Dwardu Cardona's 'Child of Saturn'... for an alternative origin of Venus."(3) This misconception ...

Mit(h)ra(s) It has long been assumed that the Aryans originally came from that part of the world which today is southern Russia. From there they spread out in several directions. Some of them migrated to the country of the Mitanni where they were eventually absorbed by the native population. The rest continued to move, in successive waves, eastward across the steppes. There they separated and proceeded to found their two great nations: Media (later Persia, now Iran) and India. Whatever the exact nature of the original beliefs of the Aryan race, their cosmogonical faith followed different routes and processes of evolution in the various regions within which they settled. The religious concepts of the indigenous populations, which they either conquered or assimilated, in turn infiltrated their original dogmas. Today there is little extant that can be considered common to the ...
