Ra as Saturn From: Dwardu Cardona <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Mon, 07 Apr 1997 09:59:28 -0700 Some of The Reasons Concerning Why The Mythological Ra Could Not Have Been The Sun. From the paper read at the Portland World Conference.... Thus, for example, Ra was often lauded as "Lord of the Circles" and "he who entereth [or liveth in the circle. (12) He was described as "the sender forth of light into his Circle" and the "Governor of [his circle." (13) What is this Circle that the hymns allude to? Egyptologists will immediately inform us that this Circle of which the hymns speak was what the Egyptians ...

The formulators of the standard Sun model worked with gravity, gas laws, and nuclear fusion. But closer observation of the Sun has shown that electrical and magnetic properties dominate solar behavior. For centuries, the nature of the Sun ’ s radiance remained a mystery to astronomers. The Sun is the only object in the solar system that produces its own visible light. All others reflect the light of the Sun. What unique trait of the Sun enables it to shine upon the other objects in the solar system? Today, astronomers assure us that the most fundamental question is answered. The Sun is a thermonuclear furnace ...
3. The Cosmology Of Tawantinsuyu [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. IX No. 2 (Winter 1984) Home¦ Issue Contents The Cosmology Of Tawantinsuyu Jan N. Sammer See also Note (1). The traditional view of Inca religion was built chiefly on the writings of Garcilaso de la Vega, Bartolome de las Casas, and Pedro Cieza de Leon. In the Commentarios Reales of the hispanicized Inca nobleman, Garcilaso de la Vega, the cult of the Sun is portrayed as supreme. The chief temple in Cuzco, the Coricancha, is said to have been dedicated to the Sun (II.9) with similar Sun-temples scattered throughout the provinces; the Inca rulers allegedly prided themselves on being descended from the Sun. The sacrifices to the Sun are described at length (II.8). While Garcilaso makes mention of the deus otiosus Pachacamac, and includes a passing reference to Viracocha, we learn almost nothing of the real nature of these divinities. Bartolome de las Casas, the great defender of the Indians, comes closer to the truth when he portrays the solar cult as an outgrowth of the ...
4. On testing The Polar configuration [Aeon Journal $]
... listing numerically the most fundamental predictions of the model. In the process, I hope to demonstrate three important principles: In each of the listed cases the predicted imagery stands in dramatic contrast to the appearance of the sky today. In each of the listed cases the predicted imagery is confirmed by the unambiguous testimony of ancient sources. In each of the listed cases at least a few independent researchers have already discovered the image or theme, though remaining unaware of other, equally crucial themes which could illuminate their own anomalous findings. Central Sun The model presents the planet Saturn as a giant orb stationed motionless at the celestial Pole. In relationship to other components of the configuration, the Saturnian orb: rests squarely in the center of a wheel-like band; is situated at the juncture of four radiating streams of light; occupies the summit of a celestial column. The first and most obvious implication of such a model, if valid, is that familiar ancient images of the "sun" (such as the enclosed sun [* !* image and sun-cross [* ...
5. Chapter V: the Yearly Path of the Sun-god [Dawn of Astronomy (Book)] [Books]
... Chapter V The Yearly Path of the Sun-god LET us, then, imagine the ancient Egyptians, furnished with the natural astronomical circle which is provided whenever there is an extended plain, engaged in their worship at sunrise, praying to the "Lord of the two Horizons." The rising (and setting) of stars we will consider later; it is best to begin with those observations about which there is the least question. In the very early observations that were made in Egypt and Babylonia, when the sun was considered to be a god who every morning got into his boat and floated across space, there was no particular reason for considering the amplitude at which the supposed boat left or approached the horizon But a few centuries showed that this rising or setting of the sun in widely varying amplitudes at different parts of the year depended upon a very definite law. We now, more fortunate than the early Egyptians, of course know exactly what this law is, and with a view of following their early attempts to grapple with the difficulties presented to ...
6. Chapter VI: the Probable Hor-shesu Worship [Dawn of Astronomy (Book)] [Books]
... we have the chief temples facing in four directions, while the Nile flows only on one side. Other archaeologists who have endeavoured to investigate the orientations of these buildings have found that they practically face in all directions; the statement is that their arrangement is principally characterised by the want of it; they have been put down higgledy-piggledy, there has been a symmetrophobia, mitigated perhaps by a general desire that the temple should face the Nile. This view might be the true one, if stars were not observed as well as the sun. With regard to all the temples of the ancient world, whether they are located in Egypt or elsewhere, we must never forget that if astronomy is concerned in them at all, we have to deal with the observations of the rising or setting of the heavenly bodies; whereas the modern astronomer cares little for these risings or settings, but deals only with them on the meridian. The place of rising or setting would be connected with the temple by the direction of the temple's axis. Now, the directions towards which ...
7. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... February 2, 1955 Dear Prof. Einstein: All I wanted in my last letter to you was to gain the concession that a comet, going through the corona of the sun or through an outburst of ionized gases, sustains an electromagnetic effect. The consequences of opening the gate to such an effect into the heavenly mechanics force the astronomer to disregard physical experiences, in order not to violate in the least the system of 1666. But in fact the comets do not follow precisely Kepler ? s third law: those that pass near the sun (like Encke ? s comet) show acceleration unexplained by gravitational mechanics. My knowledge is not great, yet gravitation with static electricity I do not identify, as you understood me and then refuted me with the fall of a body which must discharge itself upon touching the ground. In the following I present my thoughts about the nature of gravitation and discuss also in short more in the form of questions the four systems of the world, of which the first is the Newtonian, and the second actually does ...

... - in fact, the chief planet. (27) As we shall soon see, this belief was widespread among the ancient nations and, regardless of what modern astronomers may care to think, it is difficult to believe that such a persistent assertion could have been the result of mere fancy. But if the astronomers of the time could see, as they must have, that Saturn was not the most prominent, or conspicuous, of the planets, on what was the belief based? (5) The Star of the Sun What follows is not, of itself, new. The data has been presented before, both by myself and those few others who have been captivated by the fascination of the Saturnian phenomenon. But here, if nothing else, the data, while not all of it, will be collected in one place, thus emphasizing the evidential strength in its collective abundance. The data will also be presented, perhaps for the first time, in more detail than the cursory mentions hitherto allotted to it. As promised at the beginning ...
9. Electro-Gravitic Theory (Forum) [SIS C&C Review $]
... and wrote about the physics omitting all the astronomy'. I admit to being puzzled by the 'physics' but I certainly did not skim any part of the book. On the contrary I read every page, sometimes more than once, including references, and praised Charles for his knowledge of astronomy. I stated 'The book represents years of work and will give readers plenty to think about'. If Charles is not satisfied he should attempt to answer my queries, such as his statements about piezo-electricity, the braking force of the Sun on planets and a radial magnetic field of 'a relative intensity of infinity'. I tried to find aspects of his book to praise was a hard struggle and instead of accusing me of 'skimming' it, he should realise I might have been far more critical. Wal Thornhill on Crew and Kortvelyessy My dear friend, Eric Crew, exposes some confused thinking by Charles Ginenthal in his work on electro-gravitics. However, Eric drags in my work on an 'Electric Universe' and that of Laszlo Kortvelyessy, who independently produced a theory ...
10. Variations on a Theme of Philolaos [Kronos $]
... controversy is of little importance here: except for several brief allusions in the fragments, all of our information about the cosmology of Philolaos is from the later accounts in their own words by a number of other ancient writers, of whom perhaps Aetius deserves special mention. According to the conventional interpretation, the system of Philolaos had Earth in orbit around a Central Fire, with the same face turned at all times toward that Central Fire. Those living on the side of Earth turned away from the Central Fire never see it. The Sun, which is farther out from the Central Fire than is Earth, has a slow orbital motion around the Central Fire that produces the year. The orbital motion of Earth produces daylight and night, because the Sun appears to rise and set as the inhabitants of Earth are turned toward the Sun and then away from the Sun. Each synodic revolution of Earth around the Central Fire constitutes one day. Earth's revolution around the Central Fire would thus be analogous to the present revolution of the Moon around Earth: the same hemisphere of ...
