41. Mother Goddess and Warrior-Hero (Part One) [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon I:5 (Sep 1988) Home¦ Issue Contents Mother Goddess and Warrior-Hero (Part One) David Talbott The necessary emphasis on the planet Saturn in much of the prior discussion of the polar configuration has perhaps created a false impression that must now be corrected. Because the myths present Saturn as the "first father"-- the central sun and creator who originally stood "alone" in the sky-- that planet is the logical focus of any attempt to present the configuration. At the same time this can be misleading, by suggesting that the other planetary gods have only minor roles, which is not the case at all. With the growing speculation on physical models of the polar configuration, an adequate summary of the planetary myths involved becomes increasingly vital. Apart from the Earth, four presently-visible planets have a place in the model of the polar configuration as I have defined it, though their relative positions change significantly with the evolution of the configuration. The planets are: Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Mars. In ...
42. Astral Kingship [Aeon Journal $]
... , who is equated with Re and one of the paternal divinities of Pharaoh, was thought of as "having emerged from the primordial waters (Nun) in the form of a phoenix on the top of the primeval 'sandhill'." (27) The Egyptian hieroglyph which signifies the Primeval Hill also means to "appear in glory" (28) which connotes radiance, indicating far more than a mere earthly hillock. It has been generally taken for granted by scholars of various disciplines that Atum and/or Re represented the Sun and that Pharaoh was thus the son of the Sun. (29) A digression, as we put this assumption to the test, may here prove to be quite worthwhile. From the Pyramid Texts, we have the following utterance: O Atum! When you came into being you rose up as a high hill, You shone as the Benben Stone in the Temple of the Phoenix in Heliopolis. (30) Atum is then the Primeval Hill itself and He "who came into being of Himself." (31 ...
43. Aristarchus of Samos [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Aristarchus The first of the Greek philosphers and mathematicians to unravel the celestial plan and announce the discovery was Aristarchus of the isle of Samos. Others before him assumed that the Earth is a sphere and that it moves, but he was the first to formulate plainly the heliocentric theory, the scheme which has the Sun in the center. Aristarchus lived from about the year 310 before the present era to about 230, and among the geometers he succeeded Euclid and preceded Archimedes. In -288 or -287 he followed Theophrastus as the head of the Peripatetic School established by Aristotle. Aristarchus ? only extant treatise is ? On the Sizes and Distances of the Sun and Moon.? In it he calculated the diameter of the Sun as about seven times the diameter of the Earth, thus estimating the Sun ? s volume as about 300 times the volume of the Earth (the actual diameter of the Sun is about 300 times the diameter of the Earth; the solar volume is equal to 1,300,000 volumes of the Earth). In this work of ...
44. Chapter I: The Worship of the Sun and the Dawn [Dawn of Astronomy (Book)] [Books]
... Chapter I The Worship of the Sun and the Dawn WHEN we inquire among which early peoples we are likely to find the first cultivation of astronomy, whatever the form it may have taken, we learn that it is generally agreed by archaeologists that the first civilisations which have so far been traced were those in the Nile Valley and in the adjacent countries in Western Asia. The information which we possess concerning these countries has been obtained from the remains of their cities, of their temples-- even, in the case of Babylonia, of their observatories and of the records of their observations. Of history on papyrus we have relatively little. Not so early as these, but of an antiquity which is still undefined, are two other civilisations with which we became familiar before the treasure-houses of Egypt and Babylonia were open to our inquiries. These civilisations occupied the regions now called India and China. The circumstances of these two groups are vastly dissimilar so far as the actual sources of information are concerned; for in relation to China and India we have paper ...

The sun courses along the zodiac and has no direct connection to the Milky Way. Yet various cultures claim that the sun formerly moved on the Milky Way. This theme is particularly prominent in tropical Africa. For example, the west-equatorial Pygmies assert that the Milky Way is Kmvum's or Mvum's road to the sun in order to renew himself. They call it dzi ko or nwa ko, "road" or "path of the sky". The Rundi tighten the connection of the Milky Way and the sun even further, calling the Milky Way inzira y'izuba, "the sun's track". On condition that such folkloristic "wisdom" is not always meaningless, a possible explanation ...
46. Matters Arising [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... (April 1980) we published a letter from R. A. Herring on the subject of the identity of the god Apollo in Greek mythology. Mr Herring had visited many of the important Greek sites and had been struck by the fact that most of them owed their prominence to the cults of Athena and Apollo. He wrote: "Athena's role can be readily seen in the light of Velikovsky, but Apollo remains an enigma. Accepting the premise that the major gods have an astronomical origin, Apollo's usual explanation of being a sun god does not readily fit into Velikovskian concepts. Perhaps one of your members has some ideas and can place Apollo in his rightful place?" A number of SIS members have voiced their opinions and we have compiled from them the following response. The conventional identification for Apollo is that of a sun god. Robert Graves, a notable authority on Greek myths, observed that Apollo was identified with "the immortal Sun"(1) He made the proviso that the Sun had a very minor role in early Greek myths, ...
47. SOLARIA BINARIA: PART ONE: ORIGIN AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE BINARY SYSTEM: CHAPTER TWO: THE SOLAR SYSTEM AS ELECTRICAL [Quantavolution Website]
... Quantavolution.Org E-MAIL: email@example.com TABLE OF CONTENTS SOLARIA BINARIA by Alfred de Grazia and Earl R. Milton PART ONE: ORIGIN AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE BINARY SYSTEM CHAPTER TWO THE SOLAR SYSTEM AS ELECTRICAL The Sun, as star, radiates energy into the space surrounding it. Stars can be conceived to have originated from electrical cavities in the structure of space. Space, to our mind, is an infinite electrical medium. It is electrical in that it is everywhere occupied by a charge, which, when it moves, assumes the character of electrons, that is, "negative" charge (see Note B). The movement energizes and carries material into the cavities which become and are the stars. Such electrical cavities or stars are observed in the millions, and inferred in the billions, in a fairly random distribution about the Sun. They form a lagoon of stars that is called the Galaxy, through which the Sun moves in a manner, and with consequences, to be described in the next chapter. Materially, a star is an agglomeration ...

This has been a continuing embarrassment for those who believe that the accepted H-He fusion model of how the Sun produces its energy is correct. There are three types (" flavors") of neutrino: electron-neutrinos, muon-neutrinos, and tauon- neutrinos. THE OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: In June 2001, the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) in Ontario, Canada made an announcement that was joyfully hailed by defenders of mainstream orthodoxy.

49. The Mythical History of the Comet Venus (Part I) [Aeon Journal $]
... satisfies the requirements of a general theory: it accommodates and explains the data in a consistent way, while removing countless anomalies that have frustrated previous efforts to place ancient myths and symbols in a comprehensible light. It is particularly noteworthy that none of the common Venusian themes, when examined in detail, are explicable by Venus' appearance today-- a point that is only underscored by the occasional guesses of historians and mythologists seeking to explain the motifs within conventionally accepted frameworks. Consider these well-established associations of the planet-goddess: Eye of the sun god Ascending heart or soul of a dying god or king Dove, pigeon, partridge, etc. Maiden daughter of a great king Love goddess Bearded goddess Sidelock of the sun World-devouring hag Raging serpent Lamenting goddess Spinning and weaving goddesb Goddess of fate "Moon" goddess (i.e., goddess of a celestial crescent) Cow goddess Ship of the sun Sky-band Queen or mistress of the mountain. The dilemma for conventional interpretation is obvious: in seeking to account for these dominant motifs, the theorists must resort to a series of ...
... and there is some evidence in the Brahmana literature itself to show that it cannot have been much earlier. "( 2) A further clue for dating the War might well be provided by noting a previously neglected (although, of course, not unknown) episode in the Drona Parva of the Mahabharata, Section CXLVI. II The background is briefly summed up as follows: Arjuna, the outstanding champion and hero of the Pandavas, has vowed to slay Jayadratha, King of the Sindhus and ally of the Kurus, before the sun shall have set on the day in question. The Kurus know about Arjuna's vow and do their utmost to falsify it by protecting Jayadratha, who also keeps himself well-hidden. The sun is about to set, and Arjuna has not yet managed to come to grips with Jayadratha. Arjuna's charioteer, the divine Krishna, addresses Arjuna: "Behold! the ruler of the Sindhus hath, by six mighty and heroic car-warriors, been placed in their midst! Jayadratha also, O Mighty-armed One, is waiting there, in fear! ...
